the election campaign president promised to halt their construction but he reversed that position after public consultations found the majority of people wanted the existing projects completed the environmental organization greenpeace want safety reexamined we saw the. significant increase of the people who are concerned about the safety of nuclear reactors to tourists. the twenty eleven fukushima disaster in japan happened just across the sea it's not hard for south koreans to imagine the worst case scenario but a tsunami triggered by a magnitude nine earthquake caused of that catastrophe and experts say that sort of event would be extremely unlikely here in a statement korea hydro a nuclear power the company that runs this plant says the newest reactors being built here are designed to withstand earthquakes sixty three times more powerful

olsen in south korea. two thousand and seventeen saw the emergence of driverless cars and trucks being tested on roads in the u.s. and u.k. developer say more than a million lives a year could be saved without humans behind the wheel as accidents of the almost eradicated but that could also mean a loss of millions of jobs and instructors and drivers are calling on politicians to explain where new jobs would come from or in slave reports. in this brave new world events official intelligence the first direct effect on all our lives will be in transport it's already begun and it will change humanity in many ways it's well enough known by now that driverless cars and lorries are being child's the future we're told may involve our children not having to learn how to drive please press the automation button to raise the car to go to me to move a satirical was this one even sitting in a simulator you feel a lack of control as you don't grip the wheel or press the brakes dragging on for
real involves a leap of faith whose mission you know that is true the thing to the steering wheel you are now free to engage in other times the engineers here assure the technology is good enough for driverless travel motorways if not in congested cities because there's too much going on. you know this is extremely busy and complex environment with lots of potential destructors people running across roads. so i think that's probably too complex we've certainly trying to contemporary think automation both on the motorway and in urban environments. they don't work at all in urban environments and even on motorways they require regular interventions by human drive less. the future it seems may be a combination of systems moving us from port to driverless port modern rail systems near airports are driverless and people use those quite happily the paths of the cars through space would be similar to if there were you know some physical guide
to them so i think in some cases so long as the as the speeds are fairly low it's probably a safe proposition true believers in driverless transport say we will be able to sleep or work in our vehicle but if that sounds good it will also mean the loss of millions of jobs no wonder trades unions want to know how those jobs will be replaced we're looking to see massive massive investment in electric vehicles driverless vehicles future mobility we need a great leap forward it's easy to understand this concern in the u.k. there was a massive shock when car factories which had traditionally employed thousands of people all shut because of foreign competition this used to be the jackie were factory in the west midlands now it's going to be a warehouse the advent of driverless cars and wide automation could be a far greater shock still the british government reckons that driverless cars could create up to thirty thousand jobs in the u.k.
which sounds ok until you hear evidence that says that in this part of england alone automation could cost three hundred thousand jobs it becomes pretty clear that governments like the one in britain in the job strategy for automation and quickly were asked to consider a world in which no humans at the wheel of a vehicle means accidents will not happen more than a million lives will be saved every year driverless vehicles will be on the roads and soon but will human souse jobs rely on transport except them and can we learn to trust the machines to safeguard the lives of those we love lawrence lee al jazeera london. railway workers have served a christmas banquet for two hundred homeless people in one of london's busiest transport hubs forty five volunteers it used in station prepared a meal of smoked salmon plus a roast dinner and dessert over forty companies donated the food as well as clothing for those in need.
