Despite Nuclear Disaster in Hamoaka Japan Refuses to Shut Down any More Reactors
Despite the fallout from March 11st, Japan is going to go forward with nuclear powers.
Nuclear reactors in Japan remain despite disaster.
Despite the events of a couple of months previously, it appears that the country of Japan feels that nuclear power is still the way to go. They feel it is the best policy to keep nuclear power going within the country, as their back up plan. Therefore, officials outside of Japan have decided that nuclear power is still the way to go forward, not shutting down everything, but rather restarting in an attempt to get the country back on track.
The country of Japan is still putting the pieces back together from the March 11th disaster, where a tsunami and an earthquake struck the country. This left around 25,000 people either dead or missing. The aftershocks lead to a nuclear disaster that was one of the worst in the world. Many people compared it to the 1986 disaster at Chernobly.
Officials in Japan maintain that the events of March 11 or rather the after effects of the nuclear reactors were something that scientifically speaking is unlikely to happen again in the country of Japan. Many people have reacted to this point with great skepticism. The three problematic reactors at the Hamoaka Power Plant are the only reactions are being shut down, with officials Japan feeling that it would lead to a power shortage if more nuclear reactors are shut down.
After these grisly events in Japan, off of the March 11th disasters, more people are wondering about if the benefits of nuclear power outweigh the risks.
