The San Onofre nuclear plant is an accident waiting to happen! Eight million people in California will soon be endangered by America's most dangerous nuclear power plant if the Southern California Edison power company has its way. The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), which sits on the beach between Los Angeles and San Diego, was shut down temporarily in January after it was found to be leaking radioactive steam. But incredibly, Southern California Edison -- the primary electricity provider for over 14 million people in Southern California -- is now trying to bring the dangerous nuclear energy plant back online. This plant is unsafe, but it's also totally unnecessary. Even without the San Onofre nuclear plant, there's enough power generating capacity in Southern California to keep the lights on even on the hottest days of the year.

We need to shut this plant down permanently, and force Southern California Edison to stop delaying implementation of clean, safe renewable energy generating systems!

Mahalo and in solidarity,
