I went on a tour of the Diablo Nuclear Power Plant a couple of weeks ago. I remain a fan of nuclear power. This is the last active plant in California and is due to be shut down in ’24 or ’25. I’m OK with that. By then we absolutely should have enough solar to more than replace the output. And while I am a fan of nuclear – in areas that can generate enough with solar I figure that makes the most sense. Particularly if those areas are earthquake-prone.
But I was reminded that we don’t visit the ocean as often as we should, so last weekend Ellyn and I took a little stroll and visited our local sink hole (near Montaña de Oro).
