  • Southern California Edison says its analysis confirms that it would be safe to fire up the nuclear plant's Unit 2 reactor, but as a precautionary move it is proposing running it at only 70%. Yet it also suggests that running San Onofre at 100 percent for 11 months would present a strong possibility of a tube rupture resulting in a catastrophic release of radiation into the environment.

  • The lingering death-knell hidden inside the million vulnerabilities of every nuke-plant cannot be
supervised away. Gaming electrical power from nuclear generation is too-complex a technology not to finally fail. When it does, all hell breaks loose, and nukes' evil genie never goes back in the bottle. Loose-nukes / radioactive meltdown, released to the atmosphere, doesn't sink ships, it sinks society.
