Fukushima has raised, once again, the perennial questions about human fallibility and human frailty, about hubris and man's arrogance in thinking he can control nature.

To push nuclear plants after Fukushima is pure insanity.

Living only 60 kilometers from the Oi nuclear power plants (reopened in June amidst growing protests across the country), we felt compelled to contribute something to the growing chorus of voices calling for a sustainable energy future. Fresh Currents was put together from a network of writers associated with Kyoto Journal, an NPO based in Kyoto that has been publishing in print and digitally for over 25 years.
