On the eve of the anniversary of the Fukushima disaster and amidst widespread protests against (clearly insane) government attempts to reopen nuclear plants, a new survey shows almost all Japanese fear and oppose nuclear power: An astounding 95% are worried about the current decontamination process and ongoing leaks; 87% are scared of another disaster; 80% want to scrap some or all existing reactors. Japan's Prime Minister has said he wants to restart reactors "confirmed safe...while winning...
However, the deployment of renewables "still needs to accelerate if we are to achieve long-term climate, air quality, and energy access goals."
"We will be doomed if we allow another nuclear accident to occur."
"Another reason to not build nuclear power plants."
