` Japan closer to Revival of their `Nuclear Power Industry ‘ following `Fukushima ‘ majority of People Opposed ‘

#AceWorldNews Two reactors were put on a short-list for a final round of safety checks on Thursday as Japan is moving a step closer to a revival of the nuclear industry, Reuters said.

Three years ago, the Fukushima disaster led to the shut-down of all plants. Kyushu Electric’s Sendai reactors are located about 980km south-west of Tokyo.

No timing for a potential restart was decided and the next stage of checks incorporates a period of public hearings.

Polls show that majority of Japanese oppose restart of nuclear power.
