[quote:Waterbug:MV8xNTM3MTQ2XzM1ODg5ODMxXzJGNjJFMzIw] Ouch.. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/feb/02/tp-no-more-blank-checks-for-utilities/ [snip] It’s been a year now since defective, expensive and brand-new steam generators failed at the San Onofre nuclear plant, leaving California regulators scrambling to figure out not only how to keep the lights on, but [b]who should pay for this $700 million fiasco.[/b] The alphabet soup of responsible parties – [b]Southern California Edison, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the California Public Utilities Commission – failed to find the flaws, despite the warnings from watchdogs.[/b] Frankly, since the regulatory agencies have failed, we think there ought to be a law that asks utilities how much it will cost: • To pay for [b]indefinite storage of thousands of tons of radioactive waste on our coast, [/b]because there is no short or long term federal solution; • To pay for independent seismic studies and – if even possible – the [b]costs of retrofits [/b]to withstand earthquakes in a post-Fukushima world; • To pay for expanded emergency planning zones extending from the current 12 to 18 miles to the 50 miles the U.S. NRC recommended to Americans living in Japan after Fukushima; • To pay for alternatives to the use of[b] a million gallons of seawater each minute [/b]to cool the reactors in order to meet both state and EPA standards and avoiding killing fish and larvae in our waters; • To compensate homeowners or business coverage in the event of a radioactive release, because[b] the federal $12.6 billion liability limit is a drop in the bucket compared with over $100 billion in claims already facing Japan since its disaster.
