ABSTRACT
The author explains the impact of the problems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan on the renaissance of the U.S. nuclear power sector. Despite the recent nuclear disaster in Japan caused by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, U.S. President Barack Obama in his energy policy speech on March 30, 2011 insisted that nuclear energy remains essential for electrical energy supply. The author questions the view of Obama due to recent storage problems for nuclear waste concerning the Yucca Mountain storage in Nevada.
