California's Earthquake-Prone Nuclear Reactors It's illegal to build any new nuclear plants in California, but two are already in place, generating a huge amount of the state's electricity. San Onofre , in San Diego County, is run by Southern California Edison. It's due to be re-licensed to operate in 2013. Diablo Canyon , in San Luis Obispo County, is operated by the PG&E and is in the process of re-licensing now.
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
The US gets deeper into Middle East wars. What's the endgame? President Trump welcomed Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to the White House today… just one of the changes in America's approach to the Middle East since Barack Obama left office. We hear about that and the escalation of warfare as well as civilian casualties.
