A “zero-nuclear” Japan will be a serious concern for the United States as its key ally both from economic and security standpoints, the chief of an influential U.S. think tank said at a recent seminar on Japan-U.S. relations. […]

[John Hamre, president and CEO of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington]  noted there is “too much of a romantic idea about alternative energy in this country as a substitute for nuclear power.” […]

Hamre also said the policy poses a security concern from the viewpoint of international control for nonproliferation of nuclear materials.
[…]

A recent issue of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is not in agreement with many of the conclusions asserted by Hamre. See: “Probable Game-Changer”: Special issue of Bulletin of Atomic Scientists shows exiting nuclear power brings economic and
environmental benefits — ‘Startling’ findings
