Regarding the article “Nuclear No More,” while Headrick and his sheep were crowing about their success in the shutdown of SONGS, 1,100 of his neighbors were contemplating a future of unemployment and the attendant turmoil that goes with it.
The biggest culprit in this sad state of affairs is Madam Barbara Boxer whose tireless sabotage of a SONGS startup has resulted in a state more susceptible to blackouts and more dependent on imported power (watch for your electric bill to rise), and all the spent fuel is still on site and will be for the foreseeable future, thanks to democratic senator Harry Reid and this scandal racked Obama administration.
Ironically, in the very near future, an environmentalist group will air a pro-nuclear documentary—Pandora’s Promise—where they question, in light of global warming, whether one can be an environmentalist and not pro-nuclear. Perhaps Boxer, Headrick and company did not get the memo.
