As part of the First Friday series, the Samuel Lawrence Foundation is hosting a zoom meeting 11:30 a.m. Feb. 3 with Dr. Edwin Lyman, Director of Nuclear Power Safety for the Union of Concerned Scientists (USC). The online meeting is free and open to the public.
Lyman, an expert on nuclear proliferation, nuclear terrorism and nuclear power safety will address security risks at Southern California Edison’s seaside nuclear waste dump at San Onofre.
Lyman argues that security at nuclear storage sites should be beefed up.
“We agree with Dr. Lyman that security is inadequate, especially at locations that are so near publicly-accessible areas, like Edison’s beachfront nuclear waste dump near San Onofre State Beach,” said Bart Ziegler, PhD, president of the Samuel Lawrence Foundation.
Lyman, coauthor of “Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster” and the 2018 recipient of the Leo Szilard Lectureship Award from the American Physical Society, is a member of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management and past president of the Nuclear Control Institute.
