The nonprofit consumer group Public Watchdogs has filed a lawsuit to halt the transport of nuclear waste into steel-lined silos on the beach at San Onofre State Beach Park. Public Watchdogs is the only advocacy group engaged in litigation against the beachfront San Onofre Nuclear Waste Dump owned and operated by Southern California Edison. Public Watchdogs has retained the services of former Department of Justice prosecutor, Chuck La Bella to coordinate a disciplined team of attorneys and subject matter experts in opposition to the project.
Nuclear energy has been described as “clean, safe and green,” but the harsh reality is that the industry has never bothered to develop a way of keeping its deadly toxic radioactive waste safe.
