    The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan last year was completely devastating. While some countries round the world (like Germany) have taken oaths to ditch the use of nuclear fuel completely to avoid similar scenarios, many of the developing nations are working relentlessly to set up newer nuclear plants, and establish a stronger foothold in their existing nuclear base. Does the threat of hazards truly override the need to overcome energy crisis? Is indeed energy crisis the true issue or merely a smokescreen for other serious problems? Though numerous alternate energy options are in the works, the appeal of nuclear power appears to be supreme. Is stopping the use of nuclear power a viable option?
