Former Prime Minister Calls For Elimination of Nuclear Power In Japan

JunichiroKoizumi

Popular former Prime Minister of Japan, Junichiro Koizumi has called for the elimination of nuclear power in Japan. More information is available at various news stories including:

Japan Daily Press, “Ex-PM Junichiro Koizumi pushes for a ‘zero nuclear power’ Japan

Nippon.com, “Koizumi Comes Out Against Nukes

Mainichi.jp, “Junichiro Koizumi’s Zero Nuclear” (Japanese)

This is quite a big event as Mr. Koizumi is still an immensely popular and respected figure in Japanese politics, even though he is retired.

Mr. Koizumi’s comments could not be more timely as the situation at Fukushima is spinning wildly out of control.

I’ll try to add more information and comments as I learn more.
