Because things have worked so well at Fukushima

and San Onofre, and Fort Calhoun...
Britain has greenlighted a new nuclear power plant.

The government has given the go-ahead for the UK's first new nuclear station in a generation.
France's EDF Energy will lead a consortium, which includes Chinese investors, to build the Hinkley Point C plant in Somerset.
Ministers say the deal will help take the UK towards low-carbon power and lower generating costs in future.
Critics warn guaranteeing the group a price for electricity at twice the current level will raise bills.
"For the first time, a nuclear station in this country will not have been built with money from the British taxpayer," said Secretary of State for Energy Edward Davey.
But it will be the British taxpayer who will pick up the bill, and the radiation, from an accident.
