Germany said it would close all of its 17 nuclear reactors by 2022, a sharp policy reversal that will make it the first major economy to quit atomic power in the wake of the nuclear crisis in Japan. What do you think? Is the plan an over-reaction to recent events in Japan? Can nuclear energy be safe and reliable, in a world of unforseen natural disasters and purposeful hacker attacks? Are safe, sustainable alternative forms of energy ready to fuel the needs of the industrialized world? HERE
I ask my favorite question again: How can we manage nuclear waste when we are struggling with simple municipal waste. Our answer, according to the the Ministry is build and dump our wastes into more landfills! With our below par third-world maintenance mentality, how can Malaysia aspire to go nuclear when we can’t even manage an above-board agreement with the Independent Power Producer. How can we even dare to think out of the box when we have clowns telling the whole world that increase in oil prices is all because of climate change, thus burdening us with an increased power tariffs.
We are forever lowering standards, like bringing down the pass mark for Add Maths to 15% and lowering other marks so that we can say we got students that can achieve 9As.
Dang! We don’t need a nuclear disaster to finish us off…..we are already in self-destruct mode!
