Over 70 percent of Japanese against nuclear power plants after Fukushima tragedy — Sputnik International

Sputnik International:

” TOKYO (Sputnik) — According to Japan’s NHK broadcaster that conducted the survey, 22 percent of respondents want the country to abandon nuclear power plants in the country entirely, while 49 percent partially supported the idea.

The poll revealed that only 3 percent of those surveyed think that the Japanese authorities should continue building new NPPs.

In March 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit northeastern Japan. A tsunami followed the tremors, flooding four out of the six reactors at the power plant Fukushima-1 and disabling the cooling systems. It became the largest nuclear-related accident in 25 years, since the Chernobyl disaster.

Of those polled by the broadcaster, 22 percent think that there has been no progress in dealing with the consequences of the Fukushima disaster.

The results of the survey are based on the responses of 2,550 people across the country. ”
