10.1,9,19 SoCAL #SanOnofre - CPUC & NRC Meetings begin | San Clemente Green

UPDATE: "Two public meetings next week in San Luis Obispo (Monday, 10.7) and Carlsbad (Wednesday, 10.9) have fallen victim to the federal shutdown. The meetings were meant to present the findings and receive public comments on NRC's proposed rules and environmental study on the long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel."

Last week was the start of a series of meetings and upcoming events that are important to those of us concerned about nuclear energy. The headline from last week was that the former head of the NRC is becoming more antinuclear than ever. Check out other related news below.

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is meeting in San Diego tomorrow (10/1/13) to discuss who gets the bill for Edison's mistakes. Millions of ratepayer's dollars are at stake and we need to show up to be counted. If you can't make it be sure to ask for your rebate by phone: 866-849-8390 or by email:

Nuclear Regulatory Commission Waste "Confidence" Public Meeting--Carlsbad

Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa
5480 Grand Pacific Drive, Carlsbad, California 92008

Open House 6-7 p.m.
Meeting 7-9 p.m.

The NRC has scheduled twelve public meetings to receive comments on the Waste Confidence Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) and proposed rule. The NRC had ruled previously that it was acceptable to allow nuclear waste to be stored at nuclear power plants for 200 years, until courts made them go back and justify such a claim. Come hear the rationale behind such a claim and let them know how you feel about it.
