The results of a public comment exercise by the Japanese Government on long term energy policy options are available now and Tokyo Shimbun reports on them here. Thanks to this Tweet by Kevin Meyerson for the link.
With over 88.000 people responding, a massive majority of over 87 percent favored to get rid of nuclear completely by 2030.
Meanwhile, the government’s favored option of meeting about 15% of electricity demand by nuclear energy in 2030 gathered only about one percent.
With these numbers, any policy but getting out of the nuclear business in Japan would seem to be rather incompatible with basic values of democracy.
