and how much of their energy was produced by those nuclear plants?
do they have any plans to cover the shortfall??
No Nuclear Power. War on fossil fuels.
Remember the Flinstones? Yaba Daba Doo! Pedal power cars with holes in the floor board coming soon!
May they reap ALL the manifold rewards of this stupidity which they so RICHLY DESERVE.
This may be a naive question, but where is Japan generating the electricity to compensate for the missing nuke plants?
Did the plants have an alternative steam generator that runs on some fuel other than fission products?
The Japanese government elected to use designs that were less resistant to earthquake damage than proposed by the United States.
It cannot be proved, but there is substantial engineering opinion, that the stronger US design would have prevented radiation from being released into the environment.
Yea, darkness! Yea, cold! Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
I saw the Japanese anti nuke protestors on TV. One of them had a sign written in Enlish that read “No nukes. Only unevolved apes want nukes.” That is what the Japanese think of non Japanese people. All of us unevolved apes look alike to them.
Also, candle makers and dung-for-fuel mongers are pleased.
As a shareholder in a large coal company I thank them.
I thought the Japs were supposed to be so much smarter than Americans. They have their share of liberal morons too it seems.
