Time to say "Adios!" to the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant
The Associated Press: NRC chief heads to sickly California nuke plant
Vis-à-vis the nation wide tragedy in Japan, it's about time San Onofre bites the dust.
It's a disaster waiting to happen, and, it will, if we all don't make a LOT of noise to **** can it before the worst happens.

I think you all need a nice glow.

You mean we all get to keep getting raped by the oil companies and rely on a finite amount of poorly inefficient fossil fuels to power our world? SWEET!!!

If San Onofre goes the way of Fukushima, which it will when The Big One hits, "our world" won't be such a great place any more.

Well I would hope new nuclear facilities would be constructed to withstand the perfect storm (which is what Fukushima was). I just don't like rejoicing when alternative fuels get put down due to mass hysteria. Just sayin'.

San Onofre Nuclear Plant Closed After Radiation Leak - ABC News
Can't wait for all humans to die a slow miserable death.

I have talked to a few people that work there. The reactor is not going to shut down and the ammonia leak was not that big of a deal.

Hello brownouts. Yay.
Having that thing down over the summer is going to SUCK for electricity rates. Last year's summer bills were bad enough with rates increased by over half. Now, get rid of a major generation facility and watch what happens to rates.
I'm 100% pro nuclear energy, by the way.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

So am I until a better way is found. The company I work for supplies a lot of instrumentation to Westinghouse for all the reactors they own.
