David Suzuki Says Japan Wasted Time to Rework Atomic Plan

Japan is wasting the opportunity of the Fukushima disaster by failing to use the crisis and public opposition toward nuclear reactors to form an energy mix more reliant on renewable energy, Canadian author, environmentalist and geneticist David Suzuki says.

“Fukushima gives the opening that if they really want to get off nukes, then they really have to go and do something else,” said Suzuki, who joined the board of the Japan Renewable Energy Foundation last year at the urging of Softbank Corp. founder Masayoshi Son.
