Radiation leak at San Onofre

After Fukushima, I'm not so comfortable having that thing just up the coast. You know they're storing dangerous spent fuel rods there because the politicians can't agree to put them deep underground in Nevada?

Here's the latest:
After an unplanned, precautionary shutdown of a reactor at the San Onofre nuclear plant Tuesday, a plant spokesman said Wednesday that a possible leak in one of the reactor’s steam generator tubes could have resulted in a tiny release of radioactive material into the atmosphere.


While the nuclear operator – Southern California Edison – says that only a tiny amount was released, and would pose no health problems, that’s what operators always say after a nuclear accident.
