Posted in: Japan enacts law allowing private firms to operate water services See in context

2013,

Vice prime minister Asou had dogmatically promised privatization of all water service of Japan.

https://youtu.be/Qo9mq9PVae0

Japanese Abe government who worships "Neoliberalism" thrusts privatization of water service hastily despite many failure in other countries.

Opposition parties revealed "intimacy" between cabinet and ”Water Majors” such as Veoria and Suez.

But,about half of Japanese mainstream media still have no interest about even deterioration of water quality that privatization had caused in the world,and many Japanese people do not notice seriousness of this issue yet.

Posted in: Japan OKs extension of tsunami-hit 40-year-old nuclear reactor See in context

Nuclear industries often use climate change as excuse that justify restart of nuclear plants 

But Japan is natural disaster country.

Japan's potentiality of renewable energy is beyond nuclear industries.

for example,power supply at Kyushu area is sufficient even if nuclear plants did not restart.

Japan's nuclear regulation had insisted extension of use of nuclear plants as "rare exceptions".

actually, they approve extension of nuclear plants many time.

Many staff members of Japan's nuclear authorities are full of person from economy-industrial ministry who want to thrust nuclear power.

Even rule that keep independency of nuclear regulation has been ignored completely in Japan.

Japan's nuclear regulation has been gradually but surely loosened in the shade of other topics year by year.

Posted in: Former TEPCO exec denies delaying anti-tsunami steps before nuclear crisis See in context

Plural investigation committees have already concluded that Fukushima nuclear disaster was consequence of human negligence.

"Safety First" that defendant said is just lie.

They ignored worst case scenario merely.

TEPCO had enough time and chance to reduce risk but they wasted it.

Nuclear disaster deprives many.

Old people or patients or disabled or US navy crews become victims,many residents had lost home or farmland or job and even the family grave and ashes that handed down from generation to generation.

moreover,unrest to health such as increase of thyroid anomalies.

But,top or executives of large corporations is rarely punished in Japan,unfortunately.

Responsible person who should be punished is not only TEPCO executives.

Other cause of Fukushima nuclear disaster is also Japan's nuclear authorities who lacked independency.

Authorities who should have control and regulate had assimilated with nuclear industries.

it caused looseness and optimism to safety.

Present nuclear energy of Japan is about to relapse into same irresponsible situation as before Fukushima disaster.

Almost staff members of nuclear regulation authorities are from economy-industrial ministry that want to thrust nuclear industries.

Even "rules" to keep independency of authorities is already ignored completely.

This judgement was too subjective with clear contradiction and had forgotten lesson of Fukushima nuclear disaster.

"Majority people have looked upon catastrophic eruption risk as no problem"

"Social conventions of Japan looks upon nuclear plants as safe unless considerably risk is proven" Judge says,

those are mere impression about Japanese society or general public that this Judge has.

Actuality,public opinion poll about eruption is not done.

According to public opinion poll about restart of nuclear plants,

Majority of Japanese have still opposed nuclear plants.

Besides,while this judge denied Japanese Nuclear Regulation's scientific eruption forecast,demanded "scientific basis of catastrophic eruption" to citizen side.

Moreover,probability of catastrophic eruption may be low but huge natural disaster's probability is originally low.

However,historical huge natural disaster occurred actually in 2011.

and probability of deadly natural disaster has risen year by year since 2011.

Propagandistic "Evacuation drill" by Abe government who want to insist that "Our evacuation plan has no problems".

If natural disaster destroyed evacuation routes?

In the summer heat like this year,

Can residents endure indoor evacuation that "stop air conditioner,shut the window"?

Comment of Judge was like abandonment of independency from politics.

Japanese Judges who had stopped nuclear plants were demoted.

Judge who want to avoid to be demoted escape into delusion that investigation of Japan's nuclear regulation is always correct.

but,executives of Japan's nuclear regulation agency are occupied by beneficiary or related person of nuclear industries.

About natural disaster,

Japanese government and authorities always say "please prepare against worst case","unpredictable situation occur someday".

but,They never say same things about nuclear disaster.

in case of Fukushima nuclear disaster,

about 80% of all radiation leaks flowed to pacific ocean side of east side of nuclear plants by wind direction.

Many densely populated areas are around Genkai nuclear plants than around of Fukushima Daiichi.

Not only nuclear policy,

Present most oppressive Abe regime in post-war Japan history thrust politics that prioritize large corporation's profit than safe of residents and labor.

They have learned nothing from Fukushima disaster that many residents lost life,hometown,work,memories,community,even cemetery or remains.

Genkai plutonium-thermal type nuclear disaster will cause many victims more than Fukushima disaster,and far extensive area than 2011 will be contaminated by wind direction.

Japan's nuclear regulation agency and Kyushu electric power who had missed even piping corrosion.

in case of radiation leaks,

Plutonium-thermal type nuclear plants is more dangerous than other nuclear plants but,

its risk is still ignored among Japanese authorities.

Present safety standard of Japan do not consider risk of direct type earthquake,

and also practicability of evacuation plans are not inspected yet.

Japanese authorities divert eyes from worst case scenario of nuclear disaster unlike worst case scenario of natural disaster.

it is not clear where is responsible of nuclear disaster in Japan yet.

local governor,mayor,government,power company,nuclear agency,

Nobody declare responsibility about nuclear disaster,

Nobody say to guarantee safety.

The side who thrust nuclear plants take risk nothing substantially,

Only residents are burdened with risk.

Posted in: Nuclear reactor in Saga back online after 7-year hiatus See in context

Practicability of evacuation plans is not inspected yet,and not treated as condition of restart of nuclear plants.

Even risk of evacuation to the leeward is not considered because coexistence of practicable evacuation plans and nuclear plants is extremely impossible in "natural disaster country" Japan.

Strong natural disaster that can destroy nuclear plants will destroy also evacuation routes.

Government and ministry use nuclear plant subsidy to buy approval of local government,and try to repress opposition and unrest.

Emergency facilities about Genkai nuclear plants are still unfinished or provisonal but nuclear plants was restarted.

Members of Japan's NRA have been replaced to nuclear industries' beneficiary by government,lost independency,and has underestimated many risk such as earthquake or volcano,radioactive contamination.

Kyushu Electric Power had insisted that "our management is hard since stop of nuclear plants" but actual state of their management was still in the black during stop of all nuclear plants.

not only that,

They had fabricated convenient public opinion to nuclear plant,and had deceived society.

its ringleader now became chief of head office of nuclear plant.

Japan's power grid is not independent from existing power industries,

Japan's existing major power companies including Kyushu Electric Power have authority to be able to exclude renewable energy to give prioroty to nuclear plants.

Nuclear industries' lobby of Japan have already started "Anti-Renewable Energy campaign" to defend nuclear plants.

Contaminated area of inland by Nuclear disaster in western Japan will be more serious than Fukushima disaster.

Japan's government and nuclear authorities repeat to insist as if "outside of 30 km from nuclear plants is safe".

but,Decontamination about Fukushima radiation leaks to inland had reached 8 prefectures at least.

Plural cities within 30km from Genkai have opposed nuclear plants because evacuation of all residents is impossible.

but They have no authority to decide about stop or restart of nuclear plants by government's policy.

Voices of unrest about radioactive contamination or radiation disease have been repressed under the name of "Hindrance to the reconstruction" "Discrimination" "Damages to reputation".

Japan's Abe government applied 20 times higher radiation safe limit than other area to the suffered area,declared "Safe".
