Ex-PMs unveil plan for zero-nuclear plant bill

Two former Japanese prime ministers have jointly unveiled a plan for legislation to immediately scrap all nuclear power plants in the country, and to completely shift to renewable energy sources by 2050.

Former prime ministers Junichiro Koizumi and Morihiro Hosokawa serve as advisors for a private group that advocates “zero nuclear plants” and promotes renewable energy.

The plan drawn up by the group says the 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant exposed the risks of nuclear power generation, and the excessive burden placed on the public.
