Japan perminately shut-down ALL 54 of it's nuclear reactors

1 post / 0 new

On Saturday – Japan turned off its final nuclear reactor as thousands of people took to the streets to celebrate their nation being nuclear-free for the first time since 1970. All 54 nuclear reactors in Japan are now shut-down in response to safety concerns and a public outcry following the Fukushima disaster that’s over a year old. And that disaster continues to threaten not just Japan but the rest of the world too.

Senator Ron Wyden wrote letters to top nuclear regulators in the United States over his concerns about highly radioactive nuclear waste stored in the crippled Fukushima reactors – and questioned whether similarly-designed reactors in the United States are a threat as well. Unfortunately – unlike in Japan and some European nations that are moving ahead with banning nuclear power – the United States has done virtually nothing to make nuclear power safer stateside following the Fukushima crisis.
