    The earthquake and tsunami in Japan are tragedies of enormous proportions. Hundreds of thousands of people will need help in rebuilding their lives, and governments around the world will want to do all they can to help.
    In the past few days, much of the reporting of this tragedy has focused on the plight of one power plant, Fukushima. The impact of these natural disasters on the nuclear industry will be profound. Here, too, governments in every corner of the globe will be looking closely at what the problems in Japan mean for the future of global nuclear energy. Many nations are committed to a new programme of investment in such energy. The fundamental question that we all need to ask is: "Is it safe for us to go on building new nuclear plants?"

    My answer is an emphatic "yes".

    That is the problem we are fed a constant line of rubbish . It is safe because we have never had an accident . We only need the one accident . Just because we in the UK have not had a major issue for some years does not mean it will not happen .
    The earth is liable to throw us a curved ball just as we sink in to our complacent comfort zone .
