 Nuclear Power For Africa?

Nuclear power is being promoted by an international industry that downplays the dangers and costs involved. The 50 year history of nuclear power has been marked by the Three Mile Island accident in 1979, Chernobyl disaster in 1986, and the Fukushima crisis in 2011. On March 11 of 2012, it will be exactly one year since a meltdown and explosion occurred at three nuclear reactors in Fukushima.

Despite the enormous risks and costs associated with nuclear power, the South African government has stated it is planning to order 6 more nuclear reactors in early 2012. On the African continent today, South Africa is the only country to possess a nuclear reactor, and its developments in this field will undoubtedly influence other African countries.
