Thank you so much for all of those who came out in support of the letters to the NRC and CPUC. The two articles out so far, The Patch and Orange County Register, had slightly conflicting interpretations of the council’s direction, but it is hard to say just who is right until we see the actual letters the city produces. It will be interesting to see how NPR covers this event in their 4 minute radio program. NHK Japan TV covered it too, but we’ll need an interpreter to find out what they said, (see more about them below). I was just as surprised by the unanimous outcome in our favor as I was by the confrontational remarks that this topic began with.
All in all, it was another good night for us. Now we have to rush to get similar actions in other cities before the CPUC meeting on August 2.
