titaniumdioxide: why don't you go to Fukushima with a sign with the exact words and stand in front of the hospital treating all the children with thyroid cancer, then march to the temp housing area where thousands of people have been living in housing that is falling apart. Finally off to the fishing villages where people have lost their lively hood because the Pacific Ocean is too polluted to fish in. If all goes well, I'm on your side.

Without the nuclear power, Japanese citizens are paying close to ten percent more in energy cost than a year ago, and much more in the future. With all these protesters, what is the solutions to alternative energy in Japan? The third largest economy in the world needs cost effective energy for their 120 million people and their industries competitive.

1) The thyroid cancers detected in Fukushima are what is expected when you scan a population for a disease. 2) The Fukushima refugees are being compensated well for their losses. The people living in sub-standard housing are the victims of the tsunami. 3) And the fishermen are also being compensated well.

hereforever, What I heard is that there are no more children with thyroid cancer in Fukushima than any other place in Japan. However there are more children suspicious of thyroid cancer there than the other places. But the thing is that they have thoroughly examined all children in Fukushima, but in the other areas they are not intensively checking children particularly for the illness. So, hard to compare the data.

@sfjp -"Without the nuclear power, Japanese citizens are paying close to ten percent more in energy cost than a year ago, and much more in the future"

I think a lot of credit for the increased cost of fossil fiels must go to Abe and Bank of Japan due to the yen devaluation. Since Abe came in yen lost close to 20% of its value. There you go.

due to the yen devaluation. please stop with the devalualtion BS, the US fed $5 trillion money printing is what made the Yen rise to 76yen/$1 a few years ago, now all the printing has stopped and the fed is hinting at increasing interest rates people are putting money back into the $. which is why it has surged in the last few months when all the QE stopped.... see the pattern. the yen is just returning to the levels it was before all the QE BS started around 110~115 level

wtf - it's not BS, obviously QE had resulted in dollar being weaker and yen stronger over the last few years, but now since BOJ is doing its own QE obviously that is resulting in yen being devalued in relation to where it was for the past half a decade. Besides, yen has been dropping since Abe came in and started his policies with his sidekick Kuroda at BOJ, the US QE coming to an end and Fed talking about rising interest rates only added in the additional fall in the last few weeks from the 103-4 range to the 110 mark. Don't know where you" BS "comment is coming from.
