Japan’s bishops: close all of nation’s nuclear power plants
Catholic World News - November 10, 2011
Eight months after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the bishops of Japan are calling for the closure of all of the nation’s 54 nuclear power plants.
“In order to avoid tragedy, we must develop safe alternative means of producing energy,” the bishops said in a statement.”
Japan has “a culture, national wisdom, and tradition of living in harmony with nature,” they added. “In Christianity, we also have the mentality of noble poverty … The essential thing is to adapt our lifestyle, which is excessively dependent on nuclear energy, to turn that lifestyle around in its whole way of being.”
