Specifically, the operating licenses for Diablo Canyon Units 1 and 2 will not be renewed. These were set to expire on November 2, 2024 and August 26, 2025 respectively. Diablo Canyon has been famous in the annals of environmental struggles since the 1960s (4), when in 1966 the Sierra Club Board voted to endorse the Diablo Canyon site. They discovered later that it was home to the largest Abalone site in California. A major campaign to reverse the astonishing endorsement of the atomic plant by the Sierrra Club was started by several board members inclusiding David Brower. All this led to the founding of Friends of the Earth. There was civil disobedience and many protests against Diablo Canyon. In 1977, "activists staged civil disobedience at the gates of Diablo Canyon.
