On 13 September 2012, the Japanese government announced to quit with nuclear power by 2040. Not a week later, on 19 September 2012, the exit date has been set to 'undefined'. As in Germany in 2010, the irresponsible nuclear lobby obtained to 'exit from exit' - fortunately not for long.
Worldwide there are still 432 nuclear reactors in operation and 56 new ones are under construction. Small disasters like the recent earthquake remind us regularly that the consequences of the big disasters are not drawn sufficiently.
There is no other business in which the risk is borne by so many people whereas so few put the profits into their pockets.
