Fukushima links – år 2

11. november 2011

Den første side med links om udfoldelsen af problemerne efter Fukushima Daiichi-katastrofen var efterhånden blevet så lang, at det var på tide at opdele den. Herunder finder man således links for andet år, 11.03.2012 til 11.03.2013, mens det forudgående indlæg, Fukushima links – år 1, rummer links fra det første år efter katastrofedagen 11.03.2011. Et tredje indlæg Fukushima links – år 3, rummer links fra 11.03.2013 og frem.

Siden juni 2012 har jeg næsten dagligt lavet små optegnelser over udviklingen omkring genstarten af de japanske reaktorer og vedtagelsen af en ny energiplan, som bringer Japan ind i en udvikling baseret på vedvarende energi. Disse optegnelser er samlet månedsvis, se: junijuliaugustseptemberoktobernovemberdecember 2012 samt januarfebruarmartsaprilmajjunijuliaugust og september 2013. I den forbindelse er der medtaget ganske mange links til belysning af den politiske side af energiplanens tilblivelse, som ikke findes herunder.

Gå direkte til links for marts, april, maj, juni, juli, august, september, oktober, november, december 2012 samt januar og februar 2013.
