Abstract

Touched off by the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster, methods of utilizing nuclear power generation are now being discussed in various places in Japan. It is a question of what kind of choice should be made. This paper sets the structure of “power” as a starting point and considers “efficiency” and “risk” and then discusses choice and responsibility.
