SAN ONOFRE, Calif. — Southern California Edison’s parent company announced  Friday morning it has decided to shut down the San Onofre nuclear power station in San  Diego County near the Orange County line.

San OnofreTed Craver, the chairman and CEO of Edison International, SCE’s  corporate parent, cited uncertainty about when the two units at the plant,  which were taken offline because of technical issues, would be allowed to restart.

“… We have concluded that the continuing uncertainty about when or if  SONGS might return to service was not good for our customers, our investors,  or the need to plan for our region’s long-term electricity needs,” he said in  a statement released from the company’s headquarters in Rosemead.

    No worries, the unicorn flatulence plant will come on inline as soon as the Solyandra Solar Panels are fired up.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was
    a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
