You React To San Onofre's Closure

Nuclear power plants have a shelf life of about 30-40 years. They must then be shut down, allowed to cool for another 25 years before they can be safely torn down and the land reclaimed. This is not an environmental issue - its how they were designed. They were never expected to last forever, but many people don't seem to know this.

I do not recall this having any affect on the cost of these products.
