Removing the terrorist threats to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station exposed by the Black Swan SONGS series can specifically strengthen this vulnerable nuclear installation.
San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station exposed as vulnerable to rocket attack on its two spent fuel pools by terrorists and even dry casked fuel appears vulnerable to on-foot attack.
Exposé shows San Onofre is vulnerable to rocket attack from adjacent freeway and perimeter road and power could be cut to nuclear plant’s spent fuel pools by cutting electric power.
Should 1,800 tons of SONGS spent fuel catch fire due to cooling pools water loss, the impossible-to-extinguish fire could unleash fatal radiation doses to everyone within 10 miles.
EnviroReporter.com exposes San Onofre’s extreme vulnerability to terrorist attack or disaster which could destroy Southern California without major defensive improvements.
