Erin Brockovich interview on Coast to Coast AM, Dec. 19, 2011:

I have one very, very, very close to my house here called Rocketdyne in Simi Valley California.

And they actually had a meltdown in 1958 I believe.

I am astounded at the number of young youths in their 20s coming down with rare, rare cancers.

Nuclear is an issue that’s struck a chord with a lot of people so that was chosen for the second book.

Erin Brockovich and the Risks of Nuclear ‘Hot Water’, Erin Burnett OutFront, Nov. 8, 2011:

Erin Brockovich, the environmental activist whose life was portrayed in a film starring Julia Roberts, says families across the country are at risk from nuclear power plants–a subject she’s written about in a new “fact-based” novel, Hot Water. Brockovich says a study of the teeth of infants living near nuclear plants raises disturbing questions about the risks of contamination–and clusters of cancer–in communities from the West Coast to the Deep South.

“I deal with the Rocket Dyne situation in Simi Valley California where there was actually a meltdown and people dont know that but we’re trying to address these massive amounts of cancer in and around the area.” -Erin Brokovich
