Over the E-mail Transom: Japan Switches Off Nuclear Power.

Russ Steele

A regular reader sent this link to this Fox News story:   Japan to be without nuclear power for first time in 42 years.

Japan gets 1/3 of it power from nuclear. This shut down will create power shortages through out the country.  Japan could soon be a hot market for the coal that Obama’s EPA will not allow us to burn in the US.

The reader posed and interesting question. “Will the US be the next to shut down it’s nuclear power plants.”   Your thoughts?

    We will shut down our nuclear plants if and only if the present disaster extends for another four years after 2 Nov. 2012.
