Up Front - Chevron and Chemical Safety, San Onofre

Greenpeace Toxics Campaigner John Deans says the Chevron fire in Richmond could have injured or killed more than 100,000 if a tank holding the wrong chemical had burst--he says the chemical industry is blocking safety reforms, so we’ve got a lobbyist from the industry coming on to spar with him. Plus Sonali Kolhatkar interviews Douglas Foster about the massacre of 34 striking Platinum miners in South Africa. And the San Onofre Nuclear Power plant is currently shut down over safety concerns -- we’ll talk with anti-nuclear activists working to make that situation permanent.
