Japan’s Nuclear Power Struggle
Polls in Japan show a majority of people want the country to pull the plug on nuclear power. Now, the power companies are fighting back, saying scrapping nuclear power would send electricity prices through the roof.
FOX News Radio’s Alastair Wanklyn reports from Tokyo:
(Protesters Chanting)… Thousands of anti-nuclear protesters now taking to the streets every week here in Tokyo. A poll shows almost two-thirds of people want nuclear power scrapped within ten years. Some arguing Japan’s world-leading high-tech sector is capable of developing new sources of energy.
But the Tokyo Electric Power Company, responsible for the Fukushima disaster, this week said it is so short of cash; thanks to nuclear cleanup, it’ll have to restart some reactors soon. And there’s no chance of it investing in alternative energy.
