Facts that might inspire you to take a closer look and adjust your busy schedule in order to make it to these important meetings.

Did you know … employees are being retaliated against for reporting safety concerns to management?
Did you know … SONGS was designed for a 7.0 quake, but is on a fault capable of an 8.0 (10 x more powerful)?
Did you know …SONGS intended lifespan ends in 2013, but was extended to 2022 and hopes to go until 2042?
Did you know … the “30’ tsunami wall” often claimed by the industry is only 14’ above high tide?
Did you know … over 4,000 tons of highly radioactive waste is stored on-site in "temporary" storage, accumulating at a rate of 500 pounds per day?
Did you know … 8.4 million people living in a fifty mile radius would need to evacuate if there is a meltdown?
Did you know … you are expected to “shelter in place” on your own for at least 3 days if you can't evacuate?
Did you know … your property or possessions can’t be insured against radiation exposure?
Did you know … for all the inherent risk, Californians get less than 7% of our power from SONGS, which could be replaced with energy efficiency and simple conservation measures right now?
