Nuclear? You clear, my dear?


* Update 15 Mar 2011, Straits Times Forum*

Looks like Ms Cindy Low is another concerned citizen.


1st Nov 2010 – Singapore Energy Lecture

“… Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Monday that nuclear power is a viable, clean source of energy that produces low carbon emissions… ” Link here.


“… He said: “It’s very difficult to put it (a nuclear power plant) very far from population because nobody in Singapore is far from population. Yet we cannot afford to dismiss the option of nuclear energy altogether…” Link here.


14 March 2011 – Fukushima, Japan

“… Explosions hit the No. 3 reactor of Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant at about 11 a.m. Monday…

“… In a related development, TEPCO informed the Fukushima prefectural government that the No. 2 reactor of the Fukushima No. 1 plant had lost its ability to cool its core…

Monday’s explosions came two days after a hydrogen blast occurred at the No. 1 reactor in the same plant…” Link here.


“… At noon local time (0400 GMT), Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which operates the plant, gave this status report:

Reactor 1 – shut down, under inspection because of Saturday’s explosion, sea water and boric acid being pumped in

Reactor 2 – water level “lower than normal”, but stable

Reactor 3 – high pressure coolant injection was “interrupted”; but injection of sea water and boric acid were under way.

Later, officials said seawater and boric acid were also being pumped into reactor 2…” Link here.
