Kan looks at separating nuclear safety agency from industry ministry | Kyodo News

Prime Minister Naoto Kan is looking into the feasibility of separating the country's nuclear safety agency from the industry ministry, government sources said Wednesday, as his government reviews the way it handles nuclear energy in the wake of Japan's worst nuclear accident.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, which is responsible for the administration of nuclear safety issues, is currently under the wing of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The ministry has been actively promoting nuclear power, a point which critics say compromises the agency's role to ensure nuclear safety.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
