French Leery of "Nuclear Safety" Rhetoric

Instead, it says French technology is the most advanced when it comes to nuclear safety.

It all started in 2009. France lost a juicy 20 billion dollar nuclear power plant contract in the UAE to South Korea.

Local newspapers now report that a few months later, in a bid to reduce costs, not only did French authorities want to scale down the stringent safety standards, they also planned to shut down the country's independent Nuclear Safety Body which sets those standards.


But the French energy giant EDF says it has earmarked 500 million Euros to ensure that nuclear plants in France can survive earthquakes.

These demonstrators want the government to rethink its nuclear policy, and that's why they have gathered outside the French Parliament.

Whatever the final outcome in Fukushima, campaigns for renewable energy sources will receive fresh impetus as a result of Japan's nuclear crisis.
