I have spoken with Ray Lutz, recommending the program I’ve captioned as, Beauty and The Beast to align with the healthy environment beauty relies on and in harmony with LBBC mission to provide guidance and recommendations for cleanliness and beauty of coastline, parks, and public spaces .
As all rely on a healthy productive environment, human Impact and climate change are causing disappearing beaches, polluted streams and oceans, degrading earth and diminishing native habitats affecting the physical, social and economic well-being of communities here and around the world.
San Onofre (SONGS) even though “closed,” poses an imminent threat to what is healthy and beautiful; nuclear waste storage on a fault at the edge of the coast and rising sea levels and contaminated outfall puts all of what is beautiful at risk.
The LBBC advocates a clean well -tended community and an environment that support habitats , including human, dependent on a safe infrastructures to thrive; our mission must include educating, promoting and helping steward closure and safe storage of nuclear waste without which nothing, including “beautification” recommendations, have value.
The focus on San Onofre as a clear and present danger to life, health and beauty is our program’s subject- it is the beast lurking just south without stringent safety procedures and a plan for long-term storage it threatens beauty.
Ray Lutz, a trained engineer, founder and executive director of Citizens Oversight, will present on the dangerous situation at San Onofre, where 3.6 million pounds of extremely toxic heavy metal waste is stored only about 100 feet from the ocean and literally inches over the high-water mark. With experts now warning that sea-level rise is inevitable, with now Greenland and the Antarctic predicted to completely melt and the oceans rising approximately 210 feet, the waste at San Onofre must be moved away from the coast and to higher ground. Mr. Lutz will outline the lawsuits filed to stop the waste from being placed there and the progress in getting it moved to a safer location.
Mr. Lutz has a Master's degree in electrical and computer engineering and has been active on San Onofre most particularly since the emergency shut down on January 31, 2012. He has represented rate-payer interests at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in the San Onofre closure costs and decommissioning proceedings. Citizens Oversight sued the CPUC and Southern California Edison (SCE) in federal court which eventually encouraged an improvement in the closure costs by $775 million.
