This incident may have slain nuclear power permanently. Reasoning: it
severely damaged investor confidence. Investors must take into account not
only the safety of a system, but also the public perception of the safety of
a system. Protestors and legal roadblocks drive up costs. Solar power and
high cost energy-efficiency technology have now become the path of choice.
Regardless of the outcome at this point, nuclear power has sustained
irreparable harm in Japan. "No Nukes" is a meme that is made powerful by
its being able to fit on a bumper sticker. No investors, no power plant.
