I regret that your paper chose to paper-over the potential disaster San Onofre represents to the people of Southern California. Have you ever asked yourself, “Is the risk worth the consequences?”
What if one of the many things that could go wrong occurred? It could result in a disaster from which California and the nation could not survive. Chernobyl and Fukushima would pale in comparison.

The issue at San Onofre is one that exists at more than 75 other sites around the country where the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is negligent in enforcing its own rules when it comes to utility interests. They are remiss in fulfilling its role as protector of the people.

If you have been covering the Community Engagement Panel (CEP) meetings, how could you not help but be aware that Southern California Edison gets unlimited time to address issues. If the opposition brought in the experts, who include even former heads of the NRC as well as former advocates of nuclear power, to describe their concerns and valid objections, they are only entitled to 3 minutes. By now you should realize that CEP is a public relations scheme promoted by Edison.

  • Anti-Nukes never miss an opportunity to engage in hyperbole and exaggeration in their dishonest attempts to frighten the public.

    “…the potential disaster San Onofre represents to the people of Southern California.”

    AND

    “Chernobyl and Fukushima would pale in comparison.”

    Really? What is your evidence for that little bit of hysteria? How would this “disaster” unfold or occur or have you bothered to think that far and/or does truth even make a difference to you?

    “…where the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is negligent in enforcing its own rules when it comes to utility interests.”

    What is your evidence for that? Oh, never mind, none of you anti-Nukes really give a hoot about truth or evidence for your claims. It’s all about feeling “noble” in making a stand for your notion of justice and safety.

    BTW, how do you like your electric bill this month? For those who aren’t thrilled, you can in part, thank the anti-nukes for getting San Onofre shutdown and the subsequent skyrocketing of our electric bills.
