Diablo Canyon: PG&E secretly used wrong design data for key safety equipment for 30 years

Friends of the Earth said the revelation suggests that PG&E has acted with gross negligence and that the twin-reactor plant on California’s Central Coast should be immediately shut down pending a public investigation.
