NOTICE (from GD): NRC meeting on San Onofre will be tonight between 6 and 9 p.m. (PDT) at the Hills Hotel, 25205 La Paz Road in Laguna Hills, Calif.
The FBI is investigating allegations about sabotage at the San Onofore Nuclear Plant. Plant management thinks its an employee or employees that tampered with the safety system, meaning that if a reactor was running and something went wrong the shut off valve won’t work. Let me start off by asking, where is the secuity at this plant? Don’t they have cameras?
If that isn’t crazy enough news — how about the plant could be restarting Unit #2 as early as February 2nd of next year? According to Gary Headrick from the San Clemente Green who alerted me to this breaking news, Edison plans to:
1. Start a defective nuclear reactor, run it at 70% and see what happens
2. Do this while the FBI investigates one case of sabotage, (are there others?)
3. Disregard a Union leader’s claim that the workforce thinks a restart is not safe.
