Reuters just reported this acknowledgement of the blindingly obvious:
Tokyo Electric Power Co, or Tepco, said on Friday it had notified Japan’s trade ministry it was dropping plans for two more nuclear reactors at its Fukushima Daiichi plant, paralyzed last year by a devastating earthquake.
The Reuters article, however, had this buried in the third paragraph:
In contrast, Tohoku Electric Power Co retained its plans to build a new 825 MW nuclear reactor near the Fukushima Daiichi station, but said it could give no date for the reactor’s commercial operation, earlier set for 2021.
Just so you don’t think that Tohoku learned nothing from the Fukushima disaster, there’s this:
Tohoku officials told a news conference they expected it would be difficult to build and operate a third nuclear plant due to protests from local authorities.
