and political leaders appear reluctant to give it up. Local communities are divided: many have relied heavily on nuclear plants for jobs and tax revenues, but worry over potential risks.

Since April 2012, Japan has increased its generation capacity from renewable sources by 15 percent to about 3. 4 million kilowatts.
Japan posted a trade deficit in 2011 for the first time in 31 years, and another deficit of 8. 2 trillion yen ($82. 4 billion) in 2012. About half of the increase stemmed from rising fuel costs, according to the trade minister, Toshimitsu Motegi. The recent weakening of Black Air Force 1 Low

Still, the government appears certain to scuttle the commitment to end the use of nuclear power gradually that was made a year ago under a different administration. While surveys indicate the public remains opposed to nuclear power, the demonstrations by hundreds of thousands after the Fukushima disaster have diminished, perhaps sapped by the pain to the pocketbooks of Tokyo households now paying 30 percent more for electricity than before, with more rate hikes to come. The issue is cost, and to a lesser extent, concern over a resurgence in climate changing carbon emissions due to increased use of coal and oil to generate power. Clean energy still only accounts for 10 percent of total consumption most of it hydropower. Much of the new capacity approved has yet to come online. Reliance on imported oil and gas has surged from about 60 percent of energy consumption to about 85 percent.
