As mentioned elsewhere, 'support' for nuclear is climbing. It seems that Fukushima and all the other stupidities of the financial lobby weren't enough.

Recent video on Fukushima

300 tons of contaminated water per day discharged into the sea. This makes Chernobyl look quite a small incident. The environmental contamination is significant, just to understate it a tad.
