The end of nuclear panic

Calls were made earlier this year that the world, led by Japan, was moving away from nuclear. A few months later and that claims seems far from the truth.

On May 8, Matthew Wright wrote in Climate Spectator, under the heading The End of Nuclear, that Japan was ‘nuclear free...but life is going on... despite repeated warnings of a possible power crunch’.  Wright embellished his article with claims that electricity needed to maintain Japan’s nuclear reactors in an idle state was depriving emergency ward cases of ‘urgent medical attention to save your life’.

I was reminded at the time of Bob Dylan’s line, ‘don’t speak too soon for the wheel’s still in spin’, a lyric Wright had clearly never heard.
