[It] is not only rich with fishery resources but whose water is used for irrigation, industrial purposes, and even for consumption as drinking water for 960,000 people in Ibaraki Prefecture. Furthermore, no one knows how and by how much the problem has worsened over the months, except for one obvious thing: it hasn’t gone away. […]

This is important! In certain prefectures, when electric companies insert fuel rods, they are subject to a hefty tax. That tax money goes to pay for things like new roads and infrastructure for the areas around the NPP. Fukushima is saying “No, thank you” to NPPs. Take away the tax, the less local people get in “freebies”, the less the people will rely on NPP for these things. Now, it is up to the Fukushima prefecture to figure out how to get the people out – especially the children – and move them to a safe distance away from the areas which cannot be “decontaminated”, which is ALL of them. Fukushima and other prefectures have got to work together to provide assistance for the families in terms of relocation, schooling, and jobs.

Fukushima Prefecture to abolish nuclear fuel tax

The Fukushima Prefectural Government announced Nov. 19 that it will abolish a nuclear fuel tax imposed on Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), becoming the first prefecture to do so among the 13 in Japan that impose such taxes.
