    Like so many other things we hear from SCE, their facts differ from reality once you examine how they derived their numbers...

    What they are calling a 30 foot seawall to SCE (as measured from some mean tide level) is far different than an actual wall 30 higher than the beach, which in this case is only about 14 feet.

    So for some one walking on the beach, SCE's 30 foot seawall is actually only a 14 foot seawall; which if struck by a tsunami that is 40 feet high will work to protect San Onofre almost as good as the seawall at Fukushima did to protect it on 3/11/11 when the Tsunami knocked out all the standby power and also a key power line which doomed the reactors to meltdowns because they lost all cooling and caused a Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster...

    Being shortsighted really matters when it come to safety, it is like buying a parachute without a ripcord to save a few bucks! It is no big deal unless of course, you actually really need to use it, then it makes all the difference in the World, because your life depends upon it working!

    IMO, SCE is almost as good at disaster planning as they are at designing replacement steam generators, which as we all know are a Billion Dollar Debacle...


Thank you for your comment!
