Not so fast: California's last nuke plant might run longer

The Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, south of Los Osos, Calif., is viewed Sept. 20, 2005. California's last operating nuclear power plant could get a second lease on life. Owner Pacific Gas & Electric decided six years ago to close the twin-domed power plant by 2025. But Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was involved in the agreement to close the reactors, has prompted PG&E to consider seeking a longer lifespan for the plant. (Michael A. Mariant/AP, File)
