Gov’t needs to determine early whether to resume reactors

http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2013/02/208637.html

“The economy will eventually stall in terms of energy cost” as long as most nuclear reactors remain idled, Hiroyuki Hosoda, executive acting secretary general of the LDP, said in his speech in Matsue, Shimane Prefecture. “It is needed to determine their resumption by securing their safety.”

He also said, “Power companies will face capital deficits in around three years if their reactors remain idled, and the basis of their existence will be affected.”

Umm, they won’t if they do something called INVESTING IN RENEWABLES. Or hadn’t he heard? 1) Creates jobs.  2) Builds infrastructure.  3) Reduces CO2. 4) Safe in times of plate tectonic movement.  5) Creates jobs (oh, did I already mention that?)

Nuclear power and press freedom

 Japan fell from 22nd place to 53rd in the rankings of press freedom last year, according to the nonprofit organization Reporters Without Borders. Japan’s plummet was attributed to a single factor — the lack of access to information related to the disaster at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
In reporting on the serious disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, many reporters have met with restricted access, lack of transparency and even lawsuits.
