"Toshiba has confirmed plans to wind up its UK nuclear venture behind the development of the planned Moorside power station in Cumbria.

The struggling Japanese engineering firm revealed its NuGen vehicle was to be shut down early next year as part of renewed efforts to shore up its finances following its disastrous acquisition of US nuclear energy firm Westinghouse."

The human race should not be dignified with the word sapiens.
The largest growth in nuclear energy is in the Asia region, especially in China and India.� Nuclear power is “absolutely compatible� and “necessary� for a low carbon future.

Money trumps everything, even peoples' very existence:
Now, nuclear has even finally managed to outpace the production of renewable energy plants in Japan (with the exception of hydroelectric power) for the first time since the 2011 disaster, thanks to major campaigning by the industry itself along with government support.
