Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Chief Engineer: It really is breaking news. […]

[The Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Atomic Safety and Licensing Board is]  saying that to operate the [San Onofre nuclear power] plant going forward would be an experiment.

That’s their words; they said it was an experiment. […]

Now that word experiment is critical because what the law says is that if you do an experiment in a nuclear reactor, you have to get the public’s input through a public hearing process before you do the experiment.

So we’ve got an Atomic Safety and Licensing Board who unanimously agreed with Friends of The Earth that [plant operator Southern California] Edison was going to do an experiment on the people of Southern California, and before they’re allowed to do that experiment, they have to seek a public license.
