Gustavo's Latest "Orange County Line" for KCRW: On the Closing of the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant!
From the Clockwork Coker Imaginarium Collection...
Last week, Southern California Edison surprised everyone when they announced that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), offline for more than a year, would be shut down permanently. Anti-nuke activist hailed it as their victory; pro-nukes folks claimed the region's electricity rates will soon skyrocket. And then there's the whole issue of how exactly will the decommissioning of SONGS occur, a process estimated to take decades and cost billions. Who wins, who loses -- and what's next?
That's the topic of my "Orange County Line" commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9 yesterday.
And if my intro seems a bit less scurrilous than my usual scribbles, it's because I lifted it from the KCRW website, from an intro I wrote myself. Can you plagiarize yourself? I just did!
Anyhoo, my conversation with host Steve Chiotakis. Enjoy!
