No choice now, due to Russia. It must be nuclear power.

Japan forgot that we have earthquakes, tsunamis, corruption and a series of active volcanoes. France forgot almost half of its reactors have serious construction aged related faults.

love my solar panels!

Excellent news. Hope France will also share its expertise in making nuclear weapons with Japan to deter Chinese and Russian aggression.

Nuclear power is green power.

We have lots of land to bury solid wastes and big oceans to dump water wastes. No problems at all.

Any data or link to ascertain that ?

Any serious nuclear accident in France ?

Well, hopefully, the Japanese nuclear agency will listen to the advice from the French experts after this deal. They ignored them way back in 2002 when the French advised Japan to get the backup generators off the ground and to waterproof all the electrical systems at all their coastal nuclear plants. Ignoring this advice was the cause of the Fukushima meltdowns and they still haven't done it at the other 30 odd coastal plants. What's the point of involving experts if you don't listen to them?

The Japanese govt (and other govts) should ask the people first if they want nuclear power to determine which place has the most people who want to embrace nuclear power.

And then implement a relocation program so people who want it can move in and those who don't want can move out.

The storage for nuclear wastes should then be placed there. Also the plant itself ideally.

If you think Japan has no expertise/knowledge of nuclear weapons, I've got a bridge to sell you.
