Radioactive Japan Shuts Down Last Nuclear Reactor!

Japan has now shutdown it's last operating nuclear power plant. For the first time since 1970, Japan has no nuclear power plants in operation. Before the tsunami and meltdown at the Fukushima Daichi nuke plant, there were 54 operating nuclear power plants in Japan providing 30% Japan's energy needs.

This summer will test the ability of Japan's infrastructure to provide enough power without the use of nuclear energy. If there are few problems, then the future of nuclear power in Japan may be in jeopardy.

And this story says there is no technological solution to cleaning up Fukushima...

There's nothing great about this, it's an emergency solution.

Shit, I wish we'd do the same thing with Diablo Canyon. People are so arrogant and tend to think the same thing could never possibly happen to them.

Japan is rich in natural energy: wind, tides, geothermal (one of the best sites on earth), solar, biofuels. And green design will help them make better use of all these various forms of energy.

The country now has the motivation to make the transition to sustainable clean energy and they have the technical know-how and cash reserves to build green energy systems.

In the end though... How much impact will clean energy have on an island that will probably now one day produce a real Godzilla?

hopefully these nuclear reactors are only back online long enough for them to build their geothermal stuff. then do away with it
