Letting Off Some “Steam”

Recently, non-radioactive ammonia leaked from the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.  This is the latest in a series of nuclear power plant negative headlines in the past few months, from Japan to the US.

The population within 10 miles of San Onofre was 92,687, according the 2010 U.S. Census. The population within 50 miles was 8,460,508. Cities within 50 miles include San Diego (45 miles to city center). A few miles more up the 405 (San Diego Freeway) is Los Angeles County, the most populous county in the United States.

If there was ever a nuclear meltdown at San Onofre, all of us in Southern California would be singing “Nowhere To Run, Nowhere To Hide” (the Martha and the Vandellas hit song).

Why do we have it there anyway? Or, for that matter…why do we have these anywhere?
