No risky restart says public at today’s NRC meeting on San Onofre. NRC License amendment process and adjudicatory evidentiary hearing demanded to ensure safety.
Edison’s plan to restart the Unit 2 nuclear reactor safely is to watch for radiation leaks. That’s not a safety plan. That’s a nuclear experiment.
Restarting San Onofre with the the most defective steam generators in the nation is a recipe for nuclear disaster. We just went through nine months and a hot summer without any nuclear power — why take the risk when we don’t need the energy?

The new steam generators are designed to last longer, said Mike Wharton, manager of the steam-generator replacement project. “They are designed for 40 years,” he said. “We expect we’ll actually be able to get 60 years out of them … better materials, better design. You learn over the course of years what works well and what doesn’t, and you try to build it into the next generation.”
