Ex Japanese PM Koizumi Speaks Out Against Restarting Nuclear Power

Bloomberg reports that ex-LDP leader Koizumi in Japan is advocating against restarting the countrys closed nuclear reactors - Abe Mentor Koizumi Reignites Post-Fukushima Nuclear Debate.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe faces another prominent opponent to his plans to return to nuclear power after the Fukushima disaster, as a former political mentor called for Japan to immediately abandon its reactors. Former Liberal Democratic Party Premier Junichiro Koizumi spoke out against atomic power today in his highest profile speech since retiring from politics in 2009. He joins three other former leaders who have turned against the industry that once provided more than a quarter of Japan’s electricity, with all of Japan’s 50 nuclear reactors now off-line.
