James Conca Oversimplifies Japan's Nuclear Dilemma

In his latest Forbes' blog.  At the end he poses the choices as:

"The question is: what do you care about most? The planet’s survival, economic survival, or the fear of radiation? Japan has a choice to make."

Their nuclear power issue isn't simply the "fear of radiation".  They still have three cores to clean-up.  They still have no high level waste disposal site.  They still sit on a geologically active area, it shouldn't be unexpected that another Fukushima-like event will occur in the next 40 years.

Japan has a choice to make, but it's much more complex than Conca's framing of it.
