No to nuclear energy for now

SINGAPORE - Current nuclear energy technology is not suitable for Singapore, a pre-feasibility study has concluded.
Second Minister for Trade and Industry S. Iswaran said in Parliament on Monday that the risks to Singapore of housing a plant to generate electricity from nuclear reactions, given that the island is small and dense, "still outweigh the benefits at this point".
But the two-year pre-feasibility study did not rule out nuclear energy altogether, and recommended that Singapore continue to monitor the development of new nuclear energy technologies.
