Policy Committee Hears from Energy Suppliers: FEPC Explains ...

20 February 2012

In discussions on energy security—in addition to the requirements of stable supply—

nuclear energy was discussed from the viewpoints of international contributions and

responsibilities, including the continuation of technology in anticipation of an increasing

number of new nuclear reactors to be constructed in emerging countries and the

exporting of safe, reliable plants.

The necessity to consider and reflect a “theory of civilization” was also noted, given that

“human security” is being cited in the wake of the accident, with many non-sciencerelated

scholars speaking out against nuclear power.
