Well here is some good news. I live here and there has been a lot of uproar about restarting the plant. It seems that the citizen action and hearings that took place last month did some good. The moved the hearings up to Northern California to try to keep away the residents most affected. They weren't going to televise them and there was a resident uproar that forced the Commission to relent.The plant will be shuttered now.
