"After intense public pressure following last year's Fukushima disaster, the Japanese government announced Friday plans to phase out nuclear power over the next 30 years...
...The proposed plan includes shutting down all reactors that are more than 40 years old, canceling plans to build replacement reactors and restarting remaining reactors only if they pass standards issued by a new regulatory agency. Japan does not want to depend on fossil fuel as an alternative either. Instead, they are looking at solar energy options."
Hurray! Shout it from the rooftops! We have a victory for sanity and hope for a future!
The Japanese get it, now it's time for the rest of the world to understand and act before it is too late. - Wes
