Jellyfish-like organisms shut down California nuclear plant

The Diablo Canyon nuclear power power has been shut down completely after salp, which are like jellyfish, clogged intakes. California’s other nuke at San Onofre is also down and may never come back online. This means California must generate several gigawatts of power from other sources, which will probably mostly be from natural gas, coal, and hydro from out of state.

    Remember the rolling black and brown outs of the Enron days? They were manufactured.

    Come summer, it’ll be the real deal.
