National Anti-Nuclear Group Blasts Edison in Ad

The Friends of the Earth group purchased a spot on local cable systems calling the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station's restart plan a gamble.

The National Environmental Group Friends of the Earth is slamming San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station's re-start plan in an ad on CNN.

The group purchased a similar ad last year, after the earthquake, tsunami and subsquent nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan refocused attention on the anti-nuclear movement.

The ad asserts that Southern California Edison is gambling with residents' safety. It begins running today on cable TV systems in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties

The plan to restart one of two shuttered reactors is still under review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and no decision is expected for months.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will be holding a Public Meeting about San Onofre on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 in Dana Point. I hope that all concerned citizens will plan to attend this meeting. There's more info about it at http://www.prcsd.org or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/332048410225364/?fref=ts Carol Jahnkow Shut San Onofre Committee

Gotta love California. It gets fat and the rest of the country has to go on a diet! Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but it appears from the US Energy Information Administration State Electricity Profiles - 2010 Data shown in http://www.eia.gov/electricity/state/california/index.cfm that as it stands with both San Onofre and Diablo Canyon nuclear plants active, California still has a 21% Electrical Energy deficit that it can only make up by buying power from other states, jacking up everyone's prices. CA Electric Net Generation (megawatthours) 204,125,596 Total Retail Sales (megawatthours) 258,525,414 [difference = 21.04%] You have too many NIMBY and BANANA folks that want all the benefits of our acquired lifestyle, with none of the work and choices to maintain it. How many of these activists are either creating their own power or fully off the grid? How many would be willing to invest in solar or wind energy without government subsidies? How many are invested with subsidies? I'm fairly certain that number would be less than the DUI limit! Safety, yes. Stupidity no!

Shut it down! And yes, I am willing to invest in solar and plan to when I redo my roof soon!
