The government should make clear the long-term benefit of nuclear power generation and consider measures that need to be taken," the report said.

Yes, i think most Japanese are by now fully aware of the long term " benefits" of N power following Fukushima. The only benefits being the profits for the N village. J- economy seems to be doing just fine without the reactors.

Thanks but no thanks.

So ... there is surprise that people whose job is dependent on nuclear

power like nuclear power? The overseers need people to oversee or they

don't have jobs.

Other amazing discoveries:

Water is good for fishing.

Pilots like airplanes.

Construction workers like buildings.

Navies think ships are important.

And I'm sure the government is very happy with this. Whatever happens, the economy comes first, right ?

For a country that has received 2 nuclear bombs and that nuclear mess in the north a blatant OK for nuclear power would seen self serving, and monetary driven. The publics feelings on this are moot when compared to cash.

Nuclear power is scary but it is becoming more obvious every day that big oil has no future. The 1800 meters of atmosphere we depend upon for our breath can't absorb much more of that filthy stuff. Not a pleasant choice.

The Hammer to the Skull Commission supports people repeatedly hitting themselves on the head with hammers.

"The public should be made aware of the benefits of hitting yourself with a hammer," the commission chairman said. "It's the most efficient method of breaking your skull."

Have to agree with the others here.. the Commission, by the nature of its existence would naturally support Atomic Power, anything else would put into question what its purpose was for, and may expose other issues if delved into - as also suggested here.

"Ha-ha-" who are they Kidding...... "TEPCO" and the word "Competent" should not coexist without a simple "in-" added before the latter.
