The end of nuclear power: a utopia

Chronic policy of the Friday morning of each morning on luxury Luxury Radio


For decades that the organizations anti-nuclear activists, sometimes violently, to the abandonment of the nuclear. e earthquake, followed by a


Tidal Wave, in Japan, and the catastrophe of Fukushima who had resulted, seemed conceal the future of nuclear power, a little everywhere in the world. Japan announced, in the wake ,the graceful shutdown of nuclear power in 30 years.The Germany, by a statement somewhat hasty of Angela Merkel, announced the abandonment of nuclear-generated electricity. France, the United States and other countries were studying the question, by weighing the pros and cons. The anti-nuclear pavoisaient, and economic officials were firing sounded the alarm.Since the March 11, 2011, date of the disaster of Fukushima, the spirits are quiet and the pragmatism of the policies has taken over.

For France, the last Council of Nuclear Policy, the CPN, chaired by Francis Holland, the French President, has endorsed the support of France to the atom civil. If the Council announced a stop of the early central from Fessenheim, subject that the economic conditions, technical and social, are respected, the commissioning of the EPR reactor in Flamanville, of last generation, is confirmed. It is clear that the end of the nuclear could be expensive to France. Henri Proglio, the president of EDF, stresses that the abandonment of nuclear power would require investments in the order of 400 billion euros, would result in the doubling of the invoice of electricity and nearly a million jobs would be placed in jeopardy. In addition, the export of this great opportunities in China, India, in Europe. As the said the socialist minister, Arnaud Montebourg, in the case of France, the nuclear is a pipeline for the future.


The Japan, him, after having announced the judgment of the nuclear, puts into activity the central previously placed in the judgment and puts in construction, three nuclear reactors. Before the accident in Fukushima, the nuclear production represented in Japan nearly 30% of the consumption of electricity and the authorities were planning to increase this share to 53% by 2030.

In Germany, the output of the nuclear sees the invoice swell. The inflation in the cost of the electricity provoked a heated debate within the coalition government. Electricity must not become a luxury product exclaims Michael Fuchs, the German conservative member. Merkel must review its copy, and the elections are approaching. The euphoria of the energy revolution, will not hard in Germany, more than eighteen months, before the economic realities.

The United States, themselves, have more nuclear power stations than any other country in the world, 104 in activity, and after a pause, plans to build 30 new power plants.

Everywhere, in the world, nuclear energy is needed. The real problem is the security. The constructors should not skimp on the stringent security measures which are necessary. One thing is certain, the shutdown of the nuclear power is not for tomorrow.
