Dr. Ian Fairlie Webinar
“Is it Safe to Live Near San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant?”
Stream the Interview! Fairlie, a consultant who studied the Chernobyl fallout before leading the UK’s Committee Examining Radiation Risks of Internal Emitters, has advised the European Parliament and other government agencies on the dangers of radiation exposure (Read Bio). During the webinar, Fairlie told listeners that it’s better to be aware of the dangers of radiation exposure than to live in ignorant bliss. Download a Transcript.

2020 S.O.N.G.S. TASK FORCE REPORT
The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Task Force Report was released this week after 18 months of fact-finding. SLF is proud to have joined scientists, policy makers and community leaders in preparing the document. Thanks so much to Rep. Mike Levin for bringing us together. We will continue to appreciate his leadership as he advances eight key policy recommendations contained in the report.
We encourage you to review the report and share it widely:
