From the Daily Mail:-
Germany will shut down all it's nuclear reactors by 2022 in a dramatic reversal of their nuclear policy following the Fukushima disaster in Japan.

Officials immediately shut down seven of the country's oldest plants in the aftermath of the massive earthquake and tsunami.
How does anyone come up with that in the aftermath of Fukushima? We saw a nuclear power plant tested to well, destruction, and it ended up with 1 death (non-nuclear, probably down to a heart attack) and nothing but relatively small amounts of low-grade radiation being produced.

It might be that you're against nuclear power in general, but I don't understand how anyone who was OK with nuclear before Fukushima could be against it afterwards.

  1. Agreed. Hence and why I did a Fun Online Poll on the topic, most people are slightly less anti nuclear than before Fukushima.
