Ten years after the nuclear disaster

Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant is filled with contaminated radioactive tanks.
  • SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and nuclear power energy

To achieve Goal 7, affordable and clean energy, nuclear energy is included as clean energy that not emit greenhouse gas. However, it is not renewable energy such as water and wind. Even it is operated safely, high-level nuclear wastes are produced. Those dangerous wastes should be put in special containers and keep several thousand to a hundred years.

  • Nuclear power plant is a failed system

If you operate this nuclear power plant, you make the radioactive wastes and you should keep them safely for a hundred thousand yeas. Automatically your future generation will have this negative asset. Therefore, when we think about the circular system, it is a failed system.

  • To achieve zero radioactive and zero carbon

Ten years passed after the nuclear disaster. However, still, a lot of people can not go back home due to the radioactive contamination. We should achieve zero radioactive and zero carbon emissions to realize environmental and social sustainability.
