Dr. Long, Radsafe,
     Japan is a special situation.  It is a set of  small islands which are 
quite seismically active.
The placement of very large (global scale subduction) faults in close  
proximity to the islands make
tsunami risks and loss-of-life quite real.  Japan doesn't have all  that 
much available farmland.
One bad nuclear accident and companion tsunami has harmed a fair chunk of  
their farmland.
They are deciding to phase out nuclear power.  It makes good sense for  
     The are many places on Earth for which Nuclear  Power is a very viable 
power option.
     Most of the USA is a great place for nuclear  power.
     Have a good week...

It gives enough info. to write and speak on  (headings):

You-all can best  respond to fear mongers who question your very existence!
