Japan's Atomic Energy Commission "Bucking Public Sentiment" in Unwavering Support of Nuclear Madness

Fukushima Daiichi Sep 20, 2017:


I wonder how many Becquerels per hour of tritium are being released here? But hey, nuclear is really a great idea because its "emission free"! Not!!!!!

I really don't know what else to say other than Japan's Atomic Energy Commission must be a death cult given the degree of geological activity and flooding that have beset the country over the last few years. Of course, Japan is simply following the "nuclear safety" meme first promoted by the US Atoms for Peace propaganda.

Associated Press (15 September 2017). Bucking public sentiment, Atomic Energy Commission backs nuclear power for national energy mix (Sep 15, 2017 ) https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/09/15/national/commission-supports-nuclear-power-japans-energy-needs-despite-shift-public-opinion/#.WcE9ucbdncc
The policy-setting Atomic Energy Commission on Thursday called for nuclear power to remain a key component of the nation’s energy supply despite broad public support for a less nuclear-reliant society.

The commission recommended in a report that nuclear power account for at least 20 percent of Japan’s energy supply in 2030, citing a previous government energy plan. It said rising utility costs caused by expensive fossil fuel imports and slow reactor restarts have affected the economy.

The 322-page “nuclear white paper” is the commission’s first since the nuclear disaster in Fukushima in 2011. Much of it explains government efforts to clean up the damaged plant and tighten safety standards.

The resumption of the nuclear policy report is a sign of accelerating efforts to put more reactors back online.

“The government should make clear the long-term benefit of nuclear power generation and consider measures that need to be taken,” the report said.
