The National Environmental Group Friends of the Earth is slamming San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station's re-start plan in an ad on CNN.
The group purchased a similar ad last year, after the earthquake, tsunami and subsquent nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan refocused attention on the anti-nuclear movement.
The ad asserts that Southern California Edison is gambling with residents' safety. It begins running today on cable TV systems in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties
The plan to restart one of two shuttered reactors is still under review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and no decision is expected for months.
