On January 13, 2018, Southern California Edison will bury the radioactive equivalent of 700 nuclear warheads on the beach at San Onofre State Beach Park within 108 feet of the water. Each of the 75 waste containers holds more radiation than what was released at Chernobyl. When it is completed, it will be the world’s largest beachfront nuclear waste dump.

Host Eric Rankin and cohost Michelle Anderson at KX 93.5 discuss how nuclear power is generated, why all nuclear power plants are located adjacent to large bodies of water, and the limited options for safe nuclear waste disposal with guests Charles Langley and Nina Babiarz.

Owners of the failed San Onofre nuclear power plant operated the reactor outside the allowable limits for pressure and temperature, causing the radiation leak that shut down the facility for good in 2012, a new report has found.
