The End of Japan's Nuclear Renaissance? Not Just Yet
The 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami that severally damaged the Fukushima nuclear plant have been described as ending the â€˜nuclear renaissanceâ€™ in Japan. The government is in a hard place, trying to negotiate public opinion, rising distrust of the utility corporations and regulatory institutions, and now a self imposed energy crisis with the shutting down of all its nuclear power plants. As the energy-intensive summer approaches, the governmentâ€™s short-term, populist solution must quickly evolve into something more robust and sustainable. [ISDP Policy Brief No. 94].
