The Dangers of Restart
Both nuclear power reactors numbers 2 and 3 at San Onofre, California have been shut downsince January 2012 because of faulty, leaking new steam generators.

Operated by Southern California Edison, the San Onofre nuclear reactors are located near earthquake faults in a tsunami zone.

Despite growing opposition by national and local organizations, the operators are pushing to restart one of the reactors without a license amendment and full evidentiary hearing before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

Dan Hirsch, President of The Committee to Bridge the Gap, recently issued a report detailing the dangers to public safety that restarting the damaged nuclear reactor would pose.

This is his presentation of the Report’s findings. Part 2, with additional speakers and Q&A will follow ASAP
