Posted in: Japan to build floating wind farm near Fukushima nuclear plant See in context

It seems mountains are not ideal for wind power and the regions where wind power has developed well in recent years (Texas, Denmark, northern Germany among others) are rather flat.

However future developments should make wind power more efficient even in mountainous areas. I found the article below is worth reading:

good nurseries, good schools and safe food for children should be the government's priorities.

Posted in: Actress Sayuri Yoshinaga campaigns against nuclear power See in context

Save it Sayuri and spare the rest of us. Stick to what you know please, acting and reciting poetry...

your comment sounds arrogant

Her comments about nuclear power make more sense to me than the comments coming from the experts of NISA, for example

More people from different backgrounds should speak out on nuclear power

Posted in: Gemba says Japan will spend a year drafting new roadmap on energy policy See in context

Any type of green energy, be it geothermal, wind, ocean currents, what have you, are going to require HUGE subsidies, as these are all money losing propositions

What kind of subsidies do you think nuclear has been getting?

And is still getting, among other things nuclear power plants are not required to get full insurance cover, which is a HUGE subsidy.

Posted in: Kan criticizes nuclear safety agency, cozy ties to industry See in context

Kan called for a long-term effort Friday to scale back Japan s nuclear-reliant energy policy overtrhe next four decades

four decades is much too long in an earthquake-prone country like Japan. It's frightening. Nuclear Power should be phased out as soon as possible.

Hopefully that will make those lousy Haier products a little bit more energy-efficient.

This plant is even more dangerous than the other ones. Keep it shut down.

Hi Sean,

additionally I would recommend checking NHK news and:



and 1 blog by a Japanese, translating Japanese news into English, adding his own views:

Posted in: Japan's nuclear power plants to undergo stress tests See in context

Get independent engineers in. A team of pro-nuclear and anti-nuclear engineers.

Safe, Very safe, Extraordinary safety measures,etc.... is not enough. 100% safe it must be, because the consequences of an accident are just too much. Japan has not enough land for agriculture. Save this beautiful land!


In the headline it says 54 plants, but I thought there would be 54 reactors and the number of NPPs would be less? For example, in my understanding, wouldn't you say there are 2 plants in Fukushima-Ken, but 10 reactors?
