Help us save our nuclear power plant fleet.  We could lose 15 plants in the next five years and 50 plants in the next 15 years.  If this happens you can forget about mitigating global warming and climate change from an American perspective.  We love wind and solar but there is no way they can replace the massive amount of baseload electricity produced by these emission free electricity assets. 

Reopen San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)

  Southern California Edison announced on June 7, 2013 that it would "permanently retire" Unit 2 and Unit 3.  Approximately 1,500 jobs were lost. The current licenses expire in 2022.

The $4.7 billion dollars that was approved to offset the costs of SONGS closing is on hold until all of the controversial issues around its approval are resolved.  That money could be used to replace the faulty steam generators and install wedge wire screens (best technology available-cumulative) to protect marine and human life.

Taking action means being engaged at the beginning of important environmental movements over time.
