I and 4 million home owners have our own rolling black out. We just installed millions of solar panels.

KEPCO will pay us $0.53 kWh for harvesting solar energy and feeding it onto the public grid. We no longer need KEPCO --- the utilities and the nation needs us!

Home owners are now the new utility.

By 2013 there will be 100,000 new millionaires in Japan, ie., those first 100,000 home owners who install 20 solar panels on their homes.

We can make alot of money harvesting solar.

Posted in: TEPCO report admits flaws worsened crisis; denies plan to pull out staff See in context

Kan truly was a hero, and still is. Kan says he is opposed to restarting any reactors.

During original construction of the Fukushima reactors substantial excavation intentionally reduced the elevation of the chosen reactor sites.

Justification for this engineering debacle at the time was a substantial reduction in the costs of transporting construction materials and equipment brought to the location by sea and then moved

up the cliffs to the build site.

Many in Rio+20 are looking at Japan. They are really impressed by the Feed in Tariff.

Apparently TEPCO officials did not recognize the geologically obvious point that the original landmass provided a natural barrier to tsunami and a natural history record of coastal tsunami impacts.

What went wrong? TEPCO GE: Why did Germany switch and push to achieve 100% solar & renewables in 1980?

Because they knew the world would soon be out of gas, oil, uranium. They knew oil prices were going up astronomically. They knew global warming was being caused by burning oil, gas, coal & uranium, so Germany decided to lead the world towards a green, safe, future. We are so thankful the Germans provided this leadership in 1980.

If Germany knew in 1980, why didn't California? the US? Japan? OK, now we know. The majority in Japan do not want any reactors started.

I worked from age 14 to 18 as a farm worker, for $1. a day in the desert. We ate salt tables 4 times a day, plus drank water every 15 minutes. Wear a hat, take lunch in the shade from 12 to 2. Do not drink alcohol. I would bet those who died were drinking alcohol or sugar drinks.

I am a doctor. Heat stroke is always caused by a diet lacking salt.

The article should have advised people to drink plenty of sea salt water and salt their food with extra sea salt. 99% of the people who die from heat stroke are people on a low salt diet.

Rio+20. Japan’s shining moment in the sun.

Everyone in Rio+20 is talking about how Japan made the amazing shift from nuclear power to solar!

Biancia Jagger in in Rio leading the cheers for Naoto Kan and Hermann Scheer.

The main resolution that will pass in Rio+20 will be than, “Every city and nation must now pass a Feed in Tariff identical to the one in Japan”.

Three rousing cheers for Japan.

The majority in J want solar power to replace nukes. The German homeowners shut down the G nukes by installing millions of solar panels. If the majority in J want to shut down the nukes, they have to install a million solar panels and start using the new Feed in Tariff.

Chop from the top. No executive should make $100,000. a year. These people caused the greatest disaster since Hiroshima. Fight the nukes, install solar. Starting July 1, homeowners can make $1,000. a month harvesting solar energy from their roofs and selling it onto the grid, with the new Feed in Tariff law.

Germany shut down 8 nukes, in response to Fukushima, because the homeowners had installed millions of solar panels. There was no government investment. This was all done by homeowners buying panels, harvesting solar energy and making $$ millions from selling the energy to the steel mills making wind mills. Germany made this revolutionary change from investors determined to go solar & stop nukes. Germany is now the greenest nation on earth. They will probably be totally on solar & renewables by 2050. If Germany can do it, so can Japan & the US.

Posted in: Noda says reactor restart necessary once safety is assured See in context

The compelling reasons for rapid energy change can't be falling on deaf ears throughout the entire conventional energy industry. This industry is faced with the decision of whether to artificially prolong the conventional system of toxic energy supply, or to play a role in shaping the clearly recognizable path towards decentralized and rational renewable energy. The latter implies freely relinquishing its monopoly position and, of course, revenue losses. In return, it will not be completely forced out of the market. Nor will it suffer a fundamental loss of acceptance if it switches to solar & renewables. The industry could transform themselves into holding structures for companies which operate independently at regional levels. It is inevitable that solar will replace nukes in our lifetime. Why hold back history?

Germany just installed millions of solar panels. It cost "nothing", because it actually made money for the millions of homeowners who installed the panels. Germany reaped $1 Billion last year from the solar industry. Solar created 300,000 new jobs in Germany in the last 3 years. Japan could easily install millions of solar panels in 90 days once every home owners starts installing just 10 solar panels. This is not some abstraction. Germany just did it. China just did it. Spain just did it. 50 countries just did it. What are you waiting for??? Nay sayers will try to stop all progress.

Posted in: Active fault may run beneath Mount Fuji, say researchers See in context

Wasabizuki. You are correct. Japan gets more sun than Germany. If Germany can go 100% solar & renewables, so can Japan. .... Question. How does the new Feed In Tariff law help? .... The world is running out of OIL, uranium, coal & gas. .... We must go 100% solar ASAP. The faster the better. It is nice that Japan got bummed into this direction early. .... What is Naoto Kan doing to spread solar & help Japan go 100% towards Renewables? I hear he is very active. ....**** I will be visiting Japan soon to meet with Naoto Kan. I would like to meet with you first.

Japan is becoming the greenest nation on earth, because it passed FEED in Tariff law to pay homeowners for the solar energy they harvest off their roofs & feed onto the grid. This is going to make some homeowners very rich. Japan now gets 11% of its energy from solar, wind & renewables. Japan will achieve 100% from renewables by 2030. I salue the Japanese green movement.

The US economy is in a downward spiral that will push the US into a Third World status compared to Germany, China, India, Japan, Russia & many other nations, due to the US failure to adopt solar energy in 1976.

The best way the US can reverse this collapse is if millions of home owners in Japan & the US install solar panels on their roofs in 2012, to shift the whole Japanese economy into solar, wind & reNEWables.

Look carefully at the strong Germany economy. Germany will be the first nation in the world to shift totally to solar, wind & reNEWables 100%.

China is pushing hard into solar, by printing more solar panels than any other nation. Plus, China has adopted the Feed in Tariff law, exactly as was written by the Germany Economist Hermann Scheer.

Investing in solar panels on your house allows you to do something real to fight the global climate crisis & nukes.

**The Nukes have no insurance. Cars are not allowed on the road unless they have insurance.

Japan has 11% of all the installed solar panels in the world. Japan has a Feed In Tariff law to pay home owners for solar energy they harvest & feed into the grid.

Germany has 50% of the solar in the world. That is how Germany could shut down half its nukes in response to Fukushima. Germany made the only sane, reasonable, adult response to Fukushima. Germany is now doubling it solar on roofs this year. Germany will be the first nation in the world to go 100% solar & renewables by 2022. Japan is correct to go solar & keep all its nukes shut down. **

Okinawa and, indirectly, Japan is losing BIG MONEY by letting the US military use its land. Someone on this site calculated that if the whole of Kadena base (it's HUGE) was converted to pasture and horses were kept on it, they would make more money selling the horse manure.

Each of the areas that had been US bases in Okinawa and that have been returned to the country are making very big income. Oroku, Shintoshin, Hamby Town.
