San Onofre is temporarily shut down due to radiation leaks from defective steam generators.
San Onofre has been shut down since January 31st when radiation leaked into the air from a ruptured tube in one of two steam generators in the Unit 3 reactor. Steam generator ruptures can cause meltdowns. We were lucky this time. Both Unit 2 and Unit 3 steam generators tubes are showing years of premature wear. Unit 3 was installed less than a year ago. Unit 2 was installed less than two years ago. Southern California Edison is working around the clock to find a way to put these defective generators back on-line. And given the track record of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that will probably happen.
ACTION #2: It’s up to us to shut these plants down, so please help get the word out. There are many news articles about San Onofre right now. Please post comments on these articles, recommending people go to the CaliforniaNuclearInitiative.com website or the SanOnofreSafety.org website to download and mail petitions by April 7th.
California has plenty of power without these nuclear plants.
The good news is, we have documents showing we do not need these nuclear plants for power in California and that blackouts are extremely unlikely this summer without San Onofre — although you would never know it from the scare tactic press releases.
ACTION #3: It’s time to educate the public with the facts. Share this information with the public, post comments on news articles correcting the “misinformation”. Include this link so people will have the data to backup your comments: https://sanonofresafety.org/energy-options/
Help spread the word.
With all the news media coverage of the one-year anniversary of Fukushima and the coverage of the San Onofre shutdown, citizens are more eager than ever to shut down these plants. However, they often do not know about the CNI petition.
ACTION #4: We need your help to get the word out about the petition. Please forward this information to others, post to Facebook, twitter and other social media sites.
ACTION #5: To continue to stay updated on issues about San Onofre and other California nuclear power related issues, recommend people follow or subscribe to the mailing list at https://sanonofresafety.org/
Thank you for your support. We can’t do this without you.
