Second Thoughts About Nuclear Power in India

NYT Article
The earthquake, tsunami, and resulting nuclear disaster in Japan has influenced popular opinion in India about the construction of a new power plant.  A nuclear reactor, dubbed the Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant, is planned for Madban, a coastal area that experienced 95 earthquakes from 1985 to 2005.  Initially the resistance came from a small group of farmers afraid to lose the land they use to grow mangoes, cashews, and rice.  But since the disaster in Japan they've been joined by a host of Indian scientists who argue that India needs to reexamine its plan to vastly increase its reliance on nuclear power.
