Megalomaniac nuclear power plans in India

While Germany phases out its atomic energy production following the Fukushima accident and the expansion of nuclear power in Europe is mostly slowed down or even put to a halt, the Indian government plans to increase the country´s nuclear power production capacity by a factor of 100.

French energy company AREVA and other nuclear power providers are keen to make use of this new opportunity to sell their technology.
