What a fantastic way to get off focusing on the oil and nuclear energy industries and celebrating Japan's innovation to greener technologies... oh wait. Whoops, I'm sorry, what was I thinking?

Glad the UAE want to learn from Japan's experience.

This is a good deal for both countries. It's time for Japan to cut its umbilical cord with Americans and this four-nation trip is a good sign.

"Despite being a major oil exporter, the UAE has opted to develop nuclear power, seeing it as a proven, environmentally promising and commercially competitive source of electricity."

Dubai is a very small Emirate I wonder if they have given thought to the possibility of a disaster similar to Fukushima which would essentially cause the evacuation of the entire Emirate. They have so much sun, money and empty dessert surely they could do something less risky or something more innovative. They have the ability to be a world leader and example in greener energy technologies which they could export to the rest of the world instead of a dwindling supply of oil. Actually it is what I thought they were going to do.

Nuclear power is so dangerous and highly toxic, it makes using oil look like "green energy" in comparison. So this is in fact VERY bad news for the future.

Nuclear power is a double-edged matter. I wish Dubai could think it over before starting the project.
