With the Fukushima nuclear disaster still unfolding daily, much of the world has taken a hard line against nuclear power. Without public support, its future hangs in the balance.

In today’s article at bbc.co.uk.com, “Energy chief calls for global nuclear safety standard”, Chairman of the World Energy Council Pierre Gadonneix was quoted as having said to BBC News: “The Fukushima drama suggests that nuclear safety is no longer a national responsibility – it is a global responsibility.

He went on to say: “We must be aware that today there are more than 30 nuclear plants being developed; 90% of them are in India, China, Russia and Korea – it means we can’t develop safety standards without involving these countries.”


He called it “futile” for the West to try to develop increased nuclear safety standrads on its own. He wants all nations to agree on safety standards, which he believes will take at least a decade to put into place.

“It’s too soon to decide to go ahead with plans until we have fully absorbed the lessons of Fukushima, but it’s also too soon to abandon nuclear power.”

A leader in the energy sector, Mr Gadonneix formerly served as chairman and chief executive of Gaz de France.
