Your signature on this Petition will send a message, loud and clear to the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) that the application they approved for Edison was shortsighted and funding must be withheld before vast amounts of ratepayer money gets wasted along with many of our other most cherished resources in California.

Any day now, Edison will be moving deadly nuclear waste that is currently being stored safely under water in pools at San Onofre and placing them into dry storage canisters that were only designed for temporary use. These inferior containers must eventually be replaced with thicker casks designed for longer term storage. We will have to pay twice and double the cost of handling the most lethal materials known to mankind, instead of doing it right the first time.

The CPUC has the responsibility to spend our money wisely, but you don't need to be a nuclear scientist to know that such is not the case. It is as if they authorized the purchase of a cheap car that can't be maintained or repaired, but can leak gasoline and burst into flames with no warning. It is not too late to return the keys to the dealer and tell them we want an upgrade. That is what this petition insists upon in the simplest terms, (hear the "car salesman's" pitch at this link).

Time is running out before we pass the point of no return. Please sign this petition and send an urgent message to all of your contacts to do the same. The CPUC must immediately halt any further progress to allow time to reconsider. Once these thin, temporary, unreliable containers get loaded, we'll have doubled the cost in more ways than one.

After signing, you will end up on a page asking for a donation to I-Petitions, (not to our cause). That is great if you choose to do so, but we want you to understand that this is entirely optional. You can close the window at that point and you will still be entered on the petition without making a donation.

Thank you!

    As part of their official and original operating permit they were supposed to send the waste to NV and bury it deep underground in proper containers! Why are they not being forced to comply with those requirements! It’s foolish to alow this toxic and deadly material to be stored here in short term containers.

    We have to gather signatures to reform the monopoly appointed CPUC and make private utility companies pay their own criminal defense bills!!!

    Let's not be rash and make a lethal mistake in the handling of this nuclear material. Let's stop and make sure this is safely handled.
