FoE Japan: Contradiction Rife Energy and Environmental Strategy Missing Key Principles and Pathways to Realize a “Zero Nuclear” Energy System as Early as Possible
The “Innovative Strategy for Energy and the Environment” was announced on September 14th. While the target is a “Nuclear phase out” by 2040, the contents include a continuation of reprocessing activity and a declaration to restart nuclear power stations. These actions could well preserve the previous nuclear energy regime, so the strategy is full of contradictions. It should be noted that the announced Strategy does not reflect the opinion of the majority (90%) of citizens, who submitted public comments solicited by the Japanese government. They want Japan to abolish nuclear energy at the earliest possible time before 2030, with 80% favouring immediate phase out.
