I can see the problems. On one hand nuclear power plants are huge pork-barrel endeavors.

On the other hand they are a huge threat to the petroleum industry. USofA, the parent company of Taiwan is fully owned subsidiary of the Bankster conglomerate. And Petroleum is the Bankster premier cash cow.

The irresistible force of politicians' hunger for pork vs the immovable object of Bankster stranglehold on world's energy supplies.

We'll see.

BDV,

NO, NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS are NOT huge PORK-BARREL endeavors! I 100% support NUCLEAR ENERGY for TAIWAN maybe not directly from G.E. since THEIR CRAP Mark 1 BOILING WATER REACTORS did blow up JAPAN! I was hoping to get PRESSURIZED WATER REACTORS and NUCLEAR REPROCESSING TECHNOLOGY transfer to TAIWAN from AREVA or maybe CANDU! TRUTH is NUCLEAR ENERGY will always part of ENERGY MIX for TAIWAN! PEOPLE like YOU are just typical LEFT-LEANING Anti-Science DEGENERATES that don't know a thing about SCIENCE or TECHNOLOGY! Of course, THERE are RIGHT-LEANING Anti-Science DEGENERATES that hated EVOLUTION, too, which is just as STUPID! If RENEWABLE ENERGY such as SOLAR PANELS had been so POWERFUL and USEFUL, shouldn't F-16s, F-15s, and COMMERCIAL JUMBO JETS IN AIR all be POWERED by SOLAR POWER right now as a MIRACLE ENERGY today!?{roll my eyes}

SOLAR ENERGY is a WEAK and PATHETIC kind of ENERGY SOURCE compared to NUCLEAR POWER or OIL (PETROLEUM)! SOLAR ENERGY would not lift a COMMERCIAL JUMBO JET with MANY PEOPLE and also THEIR LUGGAGE into AIR or to ANY of its DESTINATIONS unless it's a SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT AIRPLANE with just one PASSENGER, which is just a PILOT alone! OIL (PETROLEUM) is only way to power THOSE Fast Moving JET FIGHTER AIRCRAFTS such as F-16s and F-15s! SPEED is vital to win any MODERN AIR COMBAT SCENARIOS! Our MODERN ECONOMY with MODERN LIFE-STYLE is basically a PETRO-ECONOMY unless WE stop driving our CARS, stop using COMPUTERS, stop using REFRIGERATORS, stop using AIR CONDITIONING, and just simply ALL goes back to riding a HORSE and living in a WOODEN LODGE while burning FRESH Axe Splitting WOOD LOGS kind of LIFE-STYLE! RENEWABLE ENERGY are MOSTLY PIPE DREAMS, and that is REALITY of it unless some TECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGH in some MASSIVE-ENERGY STORAGE DEVICES and CHEAPLY DONE, too, due to INTERMITTENT nature of RENEWABLE ENERGY!!{roll my eyes}

BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES are 100% powered by NUCLEAR ENERGY limited only by AMOUNT of FOOD that THOSE SUBMARINES can carried! Can SOLAR PANELS do that? That is HELL NO! My TAIWAN NATION will need 4 BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES to reach some kind of MILITARY PARITY with CHINA anyhow!!=/

I think this is a quite interesting video clip, but it leaves me a question.

It looks like S.Korea is classified as one of the poor countries in this video.

"

.

.

TAIWAN is classified as POOR COUNTRIES, too, but that is because it is based on BILLIONAIRES [<---- SUPER RICH kind of like Dick Cheney that collide with USA Government for his Halliburton Corporation] not our typical MILLIONAIRES [<---- worked your butts off providing actual valuable products and services]!! ;-)

John Perkins (more direct) and George Carlin (less direct in satire) tells TRUTH! Of course, it's a SH!TTY MODEL, but how MANY PEOPLE are willing to give up THEIR MODERN LIFE-STYLE! Pat Tillman (to keep WAR MACHINE going to control OIL FIELDS around world), WEB ROOT Steven Thomas (to start MASS SPYING, which is later opposed by Edward Snowden [<---- he is just like John Perkins]), Gary Webb (for reveal story on Iran-Contra with CIA DRUG TRADE), and many more people are already DEAD today with PERPETUAL WARS, so THIS wonderful EMPIRE can continue to live on doing same things!!=(

BDV,

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY is NOT a THREAT to OIL (PETROLEUM) INDUSTRY at all unless NUCLEAR (Pressurized Water Reactors) ENGINES are SMALL ENOUGH to put into your typical CARS, but that is not going to happen anytime soon! These NUCLEAR (PWR) ENGINES also needs lots of LEAD SHIELDING to keep CREWS on NUCLEAR POWERED SUBMARINES and also NUCLEAR POWERED AIRCRAFT CARRIERS from dying of RADIATION SICKNESS!!=(

NUCLEAR ENERGY is a NECESSARY EVIL for TAIWAN as our TAIWANESE NUCLEAR INDUSTRIES slowly built up EXPERIENCE of our 1st Rated NUCLEAR SCIENTISTS and our 1st Rated NUCLEAR ENGINEERS! TAIWANESE PEOPLE must come to term that NUCLEAR WEAPONS are a NECESSARY EVIL for our TAIWANESE NATIONAL HOOD! Another word, My TAIWAN NATION will soon or later have to build our 4 BALLISTIC MISSILE SUBMARINES with SECOND STRIKE CAPABILITY!! >=)

amcummer,

It helps that TAIWANESE POLITICIANS didn't throw food at people as much as PHILIPPINE POLITICIANS, which would be rather wasteful.... hehe!! >=P

World continues trend toward nuclear energy: expert....
http://focustaiwan.tw/news/aall/201305070028....

ARTICLE said, "

South Korea, which started to develop its nuclear industry in the 1980's, has set a goal of becoming the world's third largest exporter of nuclear power plants by selling at least 80 reactors in 20 years, Kuo said.

This means that nuclear energy is South Korea's third most important industrial sector after its auto and semiconductor industries, he said.

Speaking at a monthly gathering of officials at the Presidential Office in Taipei, Kuo said the overall trend suggests that governments generally are still supporting nuclear energy, although opinion polls reflect concerns among the public.

On the issue of nuclear safety, he said all three major incidents in the last generation involved human error. The two incidents besides the Fukushima disaster occurred on Three Mile Island, Pennsylvania in 1979 and in Chernobyl, Ukraine seven years later.

Kuo emphasized the importance of transparency in nuclear power generation, as in other policy matters, saying that the Three Mile Island accident drew little criticism because transparency was observed.

Having visited all four nuclear power plants in Taiwan, Kuo said, he believes the people of Taiwan should be very proud because the operator Taipower has had a very good track record.

Opposition to the fourth nuclear power plant, still under construction, has heightened since the Fukushima incident.

In his speech, Kuo quoted a paper to be published next week as saying that without nuclear power, 1.8 million lives would have been lost in coal mines and oil fields in the past 50 years.

Burning coal, which remains the major source of energy in the world, creates smog like that in Beijing earlier this year, he said, raising the question of why people are ignoring this serious issue.

Cost concerns raised of situation without No. 4 nuke plant....
http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/national/n...

ARTICLE said, "

Wu said the steel and dyeing sectors which consume massive electricity could become the biggest victims should the fourth nuclear plant fail to start supplying power.

Taiwan Steel and Iron industries Association Chairman J.C. Chou said that if the fourth nuclear plant construction were suspended, and the other three nuclear plants did not extend their service tenure, the local steel sector would see its operating costs increase by NT$4.8 billion (US$159 million)-NT$5.5 billion in 2018 and rise by NT$12.5 billion-NT$15.5 billion in 2026.

Chou, who is also the chairman of China Steel Corp., said the local steel industry hires more than 300,000 employees, and any material impact on the business, such as rising operating costs, could affect the livelihood of these employees' family members who number about one million.

The TTF's Yeh said South Korea, one of Taiwan's major rivals in the global market, was planning to raise electricity supply generated by nuclear plants for its industrial development and that consequently, Taiwan's textile sector would lose its competitive edge to its Korean counterpart.
