Close Down California's Nukes?
In the ongoing wake of Fukushima, growing numbers of Californians are beginning to seriously question the wisdom of continuing to let private utilities operate a total of five reactors all located in earthquake and tsunami zones - just like those at Fukushima - at Diablo Canyon and San Onofre.

On Oct. 11, 2011 a forum on the issue was held in San Clemente, the town closest to San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), operated by Southern California Edison.

In a program co-organized by San Clemente Greens/SanOnofreSafety.org(SOS), members of the City Council and a capacity crowd of citizens listened to and questioned a list of speakers including Helen Caldicott and Arnie Gunderson (on live video feed).

The final speaker was Danial Hirsch of CommitteeToBridgeTheGap.org, a professor at UCLA.

Days later the City Council voted to approve a staff report urging consideration of the many safety issues which remain unaddressed regarding SONGS and public safety.

Here is Part 1 of what Hirsch had to say. Part 2, the Q&A, will be posted soon.
