Ailing San Onofre nuclear plant downsizes staff


Southern California Edison plans to cut 730 employees at the ailing San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, a decision that follows two years of analysis that included comparisons to similar nuclear plants, utility officials said Monday.

The steam generator issues at SONGS also require that SCE be prudent with its future spending while SCE and regulators review the long-term viability of the nuclear plant. The reality is that the Unit 3 reactor will not be operating for some time,” utility officials said in a statement.

I’m starting to believe–our let myself believe–we are reaching this Movement’s moment prior to critical mass, its becoming apparent that more People are becoming aware that the presence/use of any Nuclear technology is a clear sign of a dangerously myopic society; one that would recommend pregnant women to smoke for nausea without any clinical basis to support it, or one that approved the use of lead paint or asbestos in homes.

But so long as there exists a resolve within the People, I feel that it is a battle worth fighting for provided our perspective and goals are held steadfast and without compromise
