More nukes for China?

It’s not that nuclear power is so great, but that the alternatives are worse, writes Philip Bowring

China’s response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster should be to have more nuclear power, not less. If that sounds a paradox, think not of the risks involved in nuclear power but of the risks involved in other forms of power generation. China should focus on relative risk.

The Fukushima problem was caused by the tsunami, not the initial earthquake. Nuclear stations in Japan and Taiwan have survived many an earthquake and Japans’ shut down as designed in this case – evidence enough that earthquakes themselves are not the major risk.
