Despite the top sell by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Poland has announced it is postponing the construction of two nuclear reactors because of domestic shale gas development, according to NHK.
Just recently (June 10, 2013), the US Energy Information Administration released a report detailing the shale oil and shale gas resources in the world. Looking at the map below, not just Poland but the entire central Europe all the way down to Turkey doesn't seem to need nuclear power as long as they can develop their shale oil/gas resources. No nuclear needs in three Baltic nations either.
Puff... goes Abe's dream of "growth strategy" by exporting Japan's nuclear power plants...
