JIM SMITH, San Clemente

Roger Johnson is up to his old tricks again. This time, it’s about SONGS nuclear facility and a recent vote by our City Council. His letter to the editor contained such a glaring falsehood about funding a government study that it needed to be corrected with an “Editor’s Note.”

As for the vote, we can all rest easy now that our City Council voted that they do not give our consent to store nuclear waste in San Clemente. When did we ever give our consent? 

Even nuttier, the nuclear waste isn’t being stored in San Clemente. In fact, it’s not even being stored in Orange County.  

Only to government agencies run by the inept Biden administration could all the above “consent” nonsense make sense.
