THE NIGHTMARE OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE has come home to roost at the SAN ONOFRE nuke reactors south of Los Angeles. The tremendous grassroots victory of the No Nukes movement in shutting this horrible plant is now followed by the harsh realities of dealing with the immense quantities of lethal radioactive fuel rods and other ridiculous residue sitting by the ocean.
So we hear from DONNA GILMORE and ACE HOFFMAN on the technical, economic and political realities of managing this material. We hear, as expected, about how Southern California Edison is doing all it can to cheap out on dealing with this stuff and what it might take to get it managed properly. See Sanonofresafety.org.
