Government panel projects 2030 Japan incorporating up to 30% nuclear power

A Japanese government panel tasked to set nuclear power contributions to the nation’s energy supply in 2030 have proposed four plans, each of which proposes different ratios of nuclear power in 2030–0 percent, 20 percent, 25 percent and 30 percent.

According to the Yomiuri, only one panel member called for nuclear power to account for about 30 percent of the nation’s total power supply. Nine panel members were in favor of either about 25 percent or about 20 percent, while seven pushed for the ratio to be 0 percent. Sources say that the ministry officials are likely to agree on opinions between the 20 and 25 percent range, however the members remain deeply divided.

  1. The Japanese Government is controlled by the Utility “Gangs” so this announcement is just more business as usual or as I like to say Nuclear Baloney (NB)!

    Any percentage of Nuclear is dooming Japan to yet one or MORE Fukushima’s, because Nature can destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7/365!

    Then What, relocate Japan?
