泊原発の停止の直前に、これがどのような意味を持つのかについてを広い視野でまとめた、非常に良い記事です。少し長めですが、高校2年生で英語が得意という人なら、辞書引きながらでも2~3時間くらいで読めるはず。連休の締めくくりに、がんばって長文を読もうという人はぜひ。

The release of huge quantities of radiation into the air and sea, the contamination of the food and water supply and the evacuation of tens of thousands of residents mean that vision of a nuclear-dominant, low-carbon future lies in ruins.

Over the past 14 months, dozens of nuclear reactors not directly affected by the tsunami have gone offline to undergo regular maintenance and safety checks, while utilities have turned to coal, oil and gas-fired power plants …

Japan has better end-use technology to reduce electricity use than anywhere, and most of the population use public transport on a daily basis so that reduces the need to import petrol. I have no doubt they will come up with more technological solutions in the near future.

コメント欄も時間のある方は……「原発はエコ」という立場(英国政府もこの立場)の典型的な意見がいくつも読めます。上に引用したのはそういうのとは違う、(大まかには)「日本の技術」についての解説の投稿。

Whether Japan will suffer a sharp power crunch is still unclear.

Electricity shortages are expected only at peak periods, such as the middle of the day in hot weather, and critics of nuclear power say proponents are exaggerating the consequences to win public approval to restart reactors.

Likely NOT a permanent nuclear shutdown, mind you. For background: Japan’s Leaders Fret as Nuclear Shutdown Nears nytimes.com/2012/05/05/wor…
URLはNYT記事。NYTのURLは「NAVERまとめ」に投げると「NYTのユーザー登録」のURLに変換されてしまうのですが、要点部分は下記など。

Japan’s leaders have made increasingly desperate attempts in recent months to avoid just such a scenario, trying to restart plants shut for routine maintenance and kept that way while they tried to convince a skittish public that the reactors were safe in the wake of last year’s nuclear catastrophe. But the government has run up against a crippling public distrust that recently found a powerful voice in local leaders who are orchestrating a rare challenge to Tokyo’s centralized power.

The six-reactor Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was badly damaged by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Blasts occurred at four of the reactors after the cooling systems went offline, triggering radiation leaks and forcing the evacuation of thousands of people.

A 20km (12m) exclusion zone remains in place around the plant.

The last time Japan had no nuclear power was for five days in May 1970, when the only two existing reactors were shut for maintenance, according to the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan.

No confirmation, but if all has gone as expected, Japan is without a single working nuclear reactor for first time since 1970. For how long?
