Today on Your Call: What should be done with California ’s last two nuclear power plants?


On today’s  Your Call, we’ll have a debate about The California Nuclear Initiative, which would shut down the Diablo Canyon and San Onofre nuclear plants. Nuclear power makes up 15 percent of California ’s total energy production. What are alternative sources of energy if these plants went offline?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. The campaign has until April 16 to collect enough signatures needed to put the initiative on the November ballot. Where do you stand on this issue? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
