They need to start funding renewables and wean themselves off the nuclear teat.

Research and product dev of renewable fuel are actually going on...maybe not enough funding, not enough interest, cost, or any other reasons makes the shift to renewable fuel hard.

Mox fuel has been a decades long failure for Japan's Nuclear Industry mostly subsidised by tax payers. All these utilities are doing is walking away from a technology they mishandled leaving the bill for tax payers again. Sometimes a disaster doesn't cost lives but tax dollars. Again the Nuclear village gets a free pass. Thank goodness I get a tax increase to help bail out a none starter to begin with.

Apart from throwing in the sea, all storage is full. Time to close all. Forever.
