Today we’re talking about avoiding a nuclear crisis.


Though the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant in southern California was shut down in 2013, there are still major consequences that we could face because of the inefficient storage of nuclear waste. I'm joined today by two women whose expertise will not only enlighten, but hopefully spur us into taking the appropriate action to avoid a future nuclear crisis.

Carrie Woodland, CEO of California Healthy Planet Solutions and founder of We The People San Diego, joins me today in an attempt to increase awareness of the San Onofre crisis and to explain why this is more than just a local issue - it's a global issue that affects everyone.

Donna Gilmore, founder of San Onofre Safety, joins us to talk about the highly radioactive lethal nuclear waste being stored just north of Camp Pendleton in San Diego County. She shares how we can each take part in having basic storage requirements changed to eliminate the thin and inefficient canisters that are currently in use for the storage of this nuclear waste.


We Discuss:

  • Why new years resolutions have built-in problems and are inefficient for real change
  • How resetting and course correcting are positive ways to encourage better choices
  • The very serious situation that exists at San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant in California
  • Why this potential nuclear crisis is not just local to San Diego and is a global issue
  • Why the waste storage canisters are not at a standard they should be to keep us safe
  • How these canisters are vulnerable to short-term cracking and environmental exposure 
  • What can be done to raise awareness and take action before a nuclear crisis occurs
