MSNBC's The Last Word on Lawsuit to Protect Our Coast

The lawsuit to Protect Our Coast got the attention it deserves last night on national television. Coverage of the litigation ran as a top story June 3 on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. The 7-minute segment included an interview with Rep. Mike Levin.
O’Donnell notes the plant closed in 2013 after a radiation leak. He also notes that 3.6 million pounds of deadly, radioactive waste will remain stranded at San Onofre after the plant is long gone.
 
“What we do know is that everything about this story is just crazy,” O’Donnell said.
 
We agree, Lawrence. We agree.
 
The national coverage before an audience of nearly 2 million viewers shows the momentum building ahead of a June 16 trial in Superior Court of Los Angeles County.
Closer to home, the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Rob Nikolewski covered the lawsuit in an article today.

The Samuel Lawrence Foundation’s lawsuit argues that as part of decommissioning, Southern California Edison must provide facilities where nuclear waste canisters can be handled and repaired. Today, the thin-walled, steel canisters are stored 100 feet from the ocean.
