Despite Fukushima, Nuclear Keeps Powering Ahead
The map above divides the world’s nations into four categories, denoted by color, according to general nuclear ambitions. Countries that operate reactors and do not plan to scale back are shown in red; nations that responded to the Fukushima accident with plans to scale back or phase out nuclear are green; countries with no reactors but which plan to add nuclear capacity are pink. And countries with no formal plans but which have expressed interest in building their first reactors are yellow. Japan is its own color, black, to reflect the level of uncertainty there.
