Green Scene: Nuclear power in our backyard the San Onofre Nuclear Plant

The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) has provided power to San Diego since 1968.  Reactor 1 was shut down in 1992 due to increased maintenance/retrofit expenses.  Reactors 2 and 3 have been de-powered  after finding excessive wear in the steam pipes. The Fukushima Daiichi disaster in Japan has re-awakened the surrounding communities who question the need to restart such a risky power generation facility given the safety issues of nuclear power.   We have two thoughtful voices who will talk about the issues, costs and myths of the SONGS plant.

Speakers :

Rochelle Becker : Executive Director, Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility

Murray Jennex, Ph.D. Associate Professor, MIS, SDSU, Nuclear Engineer
