SF Measure “F” is a solution

SF Measure “F” is a solution looking for a problem. This one of the wackiest ideas I have ever heard of in my life. This is what give environmentalist a bad name! Mike should look at the nuclear waste disposal problem and or shutting down San Onofre Nuclear Power station in which one of the units was built backwards. Obviously, this plant needs to be immediately decommissioned.

Snippet from Corpwatch: “And Don May, the president of California Earth Corp who has been fighting the plants since the 1960s, says that the future cost could be much higher because there is a major fault line about two miles away that is overdue for an earthquake. What worries him most is the fact that Bechtel installed one of the reactors backwards. “The way the reactor has been installed at the site means that the seismic braces will exacerbate the impact of an earthquake rather than reduce it. In addition the reactor walls have been worn down to half their original thickness from constant bombardment.” May explained. “If there is an earthquake, Lord help us.” Bechtel admits that the reactor was installed backwards but that’s about it.”
