In testimony Wednesday before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Southern California Edison unleashed a plan that would experiment with four or five successive test runs of their defective damaged generator over the next couple of years. This plan would certainly put 8.5 million of us in danger.
As I said at Monday’s Mission Viejo City Council meeting, Edison’s call for a limited licensing review approval before the NRC today would kill any hearing that would otherwise be called after this type of approval. A hearing would thus become a sham. Edison’s duplicity knows no bounds.
There was a bit of comedy at the hearing listening to Edison’s Chamber of Commerce shills as they called for cheap, clean and safe energy – none of which Edison can provide. Edison’s $35 million dollar PR slush fund was obviously at work.
The hearing was covered in an article by Friends of the Earth.
