Posted in: 3-meter tsunami reached nuclear plant after powerful Japan quake See in context

After every failure at nuclear power plants and every potential failure, they still cannot use their experience with the accidents to be able to stop from being negligent with their failures to provide the public with safe and honest readings from tsunami buoys. The blackouts will continue.

Yes, let's not forget the increased tax revenues from inflation. There's no way to increase the consumption tax. They forgot about inflation. What's their big idea now?

The ruling parties in the government will pass anything they want and the common citizen will do nothing about it. If your children smoke that stuff and get convicted, as a parent, you are not likely to see them for at least 7 years. They can work for free to do the will of the ruling parties. Are you telling me that mothers and fathers actually would be in favor of what this is really going to do? Of course not, that's why politicians will never ask or care what they think.

Previous poster asks some good questions. Also, it's impossible for a foreigner to have a criminal record if they just came to Japan. Does that mean that somebody with a minor infraction 20 years would be less desirable than someone who' has not had the chance to commit a violation?

If we use this kind of logic maybe it will be better to reappropriate defense spending to pay part of our electricity bills. Why should we assume that other governments militaries will be a threat?

Posted in: Court rejects case opposing restart of Miyagi Prefecture nuclear plant See in context

This is the will of the Court and the government policies. Not getting the will of the people is unforgivable. Getting the will of the people would mean holding a referendum where the reactors will be starting, not just having the commissioner's rubber stamp and say that they speak for the people. Not getting incredible consent of the people is unforgivable.

They have to make an example out of this and the company President should be considered an accomplice or subject to responsibility for this situation. Company presidents must be responsible for due diligence when inspecting health and not only when they're trying to hype up coronavirus and make everyone wear masks.

Sanctioning the Ronald Reagan library? What a bold the move. Of course I find it as amusing as any other Westerner that Trump could inflame Asians inferiority complex by using reaganesque rhetoric and demeanor, as fraudulent as it was. They're going too far by taking cheap shots at Reagan, lol.

I hope it's just lip service. They already got the military 2% money so it would make sense to talk like he wants to do this. If he could get another 4% on the children's backs, the ones who must defend the ldp's twisted will, it seems like money that could easily be reappropriated if there was a fabricated need.

Posted in: Cabinet adopts policy of using nuclear reactors beyond 60 years See in context

The onagawa plant is an accident site. Make no mistake about that. They had to replace the whole top of one of the reactors and God knows what else. These plants will never be on time and they will never be under budget so they are a waste not to mention that there's no plan b. What will you do if they can start the reactors? You'll be in the cold, that's what. The government has declared that they cannot maintain a country without these nuclear plants, so it is very clear for any other country what to do in order to set Japan back to the Stone age.

When the Russians took the Northern Territories, they also took half of Sakhalin that was part of Japan. Sakhalin is where all the natural gas that Japan needs is. Why is there never any mention of this motive. Whoever controls the Northern Territories will also control Sakhalin.

Posted in: Suspect charged with third murder in Christmas Day killing of family of 3 See in context

I I would advise that to prevent this from this and many other bad possible things from happening, that foreigners who married Japanese should really consider being the head of household. It will only make your family stronger and settling for less will hurt you in the long run. For example, the police might not even take a report from a foreigner who is not the head of a household. If you are the foreign head of a household with Japanese citizens, that would mean that not listening to you would be not listening to Japanese in the eyes of the police. I'm not saying that this will prevent all crazy psychopaths from doing things like this but it will get more of a reaction from the police when you give them the tip.

Another one of their new marketing schemes is to charge the same price for take in and take out. I was worried about eating in after I had to take out order in the cashier is shown me that it cost the same price as 10% tax, for real.

Posted in: Japan adopts new policy promoting greater use of nuclear energy See in context

Nuclear power generation has created the socio-economic reliance that we need to avoid. We must move in the opposite direction. Conservation of energy is the key to self-reliance and sustainability. The unintended side effects are more than just environmental and human error at Fukushima and Chernobyl. Look what's happening in Ukraine at the power plants there. They are targets in the world is about to go to war, radioactive dirty bombs. Sun flares are also a very serious risk that nobody talks about on here.

About SM (NUCLEAR) R's...



With a drop in population, and the efforts people will make to conserve energy because of the price, I really don't see power generation being such a lucrative market in the future. There will be less need for power with less people.

The supply of uranium from Russia is not reliable. Some small modular nuclear reactors have designs that manage the nuclear waste problem by just leaving it in the ground, forever. I hope Green technology doesn't mean the green glow from the plutonium.

Posted in: Japan's manpower-light defense strategy a flawed 'paper plan', officers say See in context

If we're going to be talking about going to war, we may as well be talking about arming local communities. I can't understand why nobody has mentioned this and Japanese news, soldiers, etc, never consider it an option. When they get past with the missiles the drones and the ships, Japan must make invaders understand that they are coming to fight the people on terrain that gives the armed defenders an advantage naturally.

Can't we learn from the lessons of today? Ukraine has missiles and defense systems, but the real danger is winter. Are you ready for freezing while the politicians shoot missiles? Is the electricity grid similar to the one that's been destroyed in Ukraine? If so, guess what that means. We'll all be out in the cold.
