Statement on Fukushima

Alan Mackinnon, Chair of Scottish CND, issued the following statement on the accident in Japan: 

“Scottish CND expresses its deepest sympathy to the people of northern Japan whose lives and communities have been devastated by the recent earthquake and the resulting tsunami and nuclear accidents. But the explosions and likely core meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear power plant were predictable consequences of relying on nuclear power generation - an inherently unsafe technology - especially in a seismically unstable region. The strategy of building nuclear power stations in coastal areas is common to Japan and Britain and even without an earthquake it makes them highly vulnerable to rising sea levels, coastal flooding and extreme weather events which are a feature of climate change. This accident comes only weeks before the 25th Anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe.
