A fragile situation in South Korea

DW readers wrote in to tell us about nuclear energy policy where they live.


Nuclear reactors should never have been built in Japan period, since the entire country is located in a major earthquake zone. Perhaps they would have had to sacrifice some economic growth, but they could have made do with alternative energy sources, such as hydroelectric power, wind power, solar energy and fossil fuels. South Korea has a handful of nuclear reactors and unlike Japan is not in a heavy earthquake zone - it experiences mild tremors at worst. However, what would happen to the reactors if another Korean War were to break out? All nations really need to rethink this reliance on such a potentially dangerous energy source.

-- Brian, South Korea
