JAPAN EARTHQUAKE JOLTS GLOBAL VIEWS ON NUCLEAR ENERGY: Net favour globally falls from 25% to a mere 6%. However, supporters continue to outnumber opponents by 49% : 43%
Zurich / Dublin , April 19, 2011
Net favour worldwide falls from 25% to a mere 6%, as hundreds of millions worldwide become concerned about Nuclear Leakages and switch sides from favouring to opposing Nuclear Power. However, supporters continue to outnumber opponents by 49% : 43%.
The sharpest fall in support comes from Japan itself where Net Favor fell by 41%: from 34% prior to the earthquake to minus 7% in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami which damaged Japanese nuclear power plants at Fukushima.
The Irish View:- Irish opinion prior to the earthquake in Japan was already negative towards nuclear energy. This opinion is contrary to the worldwide view. The events in Fukushima only further compounded our negative stance towards nuclear energy in the data collected by RED C.
