Sunil Chacko: Full calculation of nuclear power can win renewable energy to more ground enable

In the past, renewable energy sources, like solar, wind, biofuels and geothermal energy, had compared to the pre-Fukushima rush of nuclear energy have been relegated. In fact went, plan 50% of its power in a nation from nuclear to 2030, come Japan as far as where people have grown accustomed to, that no doors to open, as electric motor inlet automatically, and it powered are similar use or waste of energy, depending on the perspective of the onlooker.

The tragic incident, the Japan, starting with the terrible tsunami and subsequent radiation taken the entire nuclear industry of the world has influenced leaks, has not only the nuclear plans of Japan, but. Germany has already announced that it will give up nuclear power in its entirety. Pressure is on countries like India, which had large nuclear targets, now a closer look in the light of the experience of the Fukushima take. In India, however, is not earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, volcanoes, landslides and other disasters, which had to cope with the hard-working Japanese over the centuries the Japan so much his natural disasters, which pale in comparison to the almost continuous cycle. But rather, perhaps more dangerous possibility of human criminals and terrorist actions that could trigger a nuclear cloud release a reactor and subsequent nuclear fallout caused that my late father statisticians likely predictions to the University of California, Berkeley, half a century ago explored. And the possibility of accidents way for nuclear waste, the rail or road transport.

In the meantime, disposal of nuclear waste has become controversial because the cost of commissioning and later decommissioned nuclear power plants. Caribbean States have as an immediate end of shipments of nuclear waste by the Caribbean and stressed that the ocean is as much an integral part of their tourism and based industry, which is indeed the case for the island nation of Japan.

Further, has successfully United States Senate majority leader Senator Harry Reid nuclear waste way from his home state of Nevada big Yucca Mountain, which for decades as a dumping ground held, potential into consideration was drawn.

View the post-Fukushima Japanese shelves not sold meat and fish, contaminated feed with used following messages, such as feed and tainted fluids released into the ocean to the affected nuclear power plants, suffered only one category of losses are small and large companies. The losses were affected as severe for families and communities, beyond the untold suffering of tsunami/radiation.

But nowhere a full costs done was. And a fuzzy debate allows you to continue with polarized intellectual Institute abuse research each other, such as Prof. Jitsuro Terashima, Chairman of Japan, stressed. He gets to reduce dependence on nuclear energy by a revision in Japan's strategic energy plan. In the meantime has Prof. Hiroshi Komiyama, President of Mitsubishi Research Institute, a low-carbon future through enhanced use of renewable energies strongly advocated.

There is no doubt that much more solar energy should use Japan and most other Nations with abundant sunlight through highly efficient photovoltaic and thermal routes. In fact, was Dr. Kazuo Inamori, founder of Kyocera, for example, a pioneer in this respect.

It is time to support renewable energy with Japan's low cost of capital to reduce the risks of nuclear power and alleviate the impending power shortage, such as Japan and indeed the world comprehensively consider an energy future post-Fukushima.
