Despite the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 and the more recent accident in Fukushima, the safety record of nuclear power is better than any other major source of power. Some countries (China) are investing heavily in the development of new nuclear power plants in order to be less dependent on other countries for its economic growth. Others, such as Germany, have learned their lessons from Fukushima and will eventually phase out nuclear power. But what about the dependency on nuclear power by country?
