Questions about nuclear safety

Nearly 40 months since the triple meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March 2011, steps taken so far by the Abe administration show that it is intent on pushing nuclear power generation. Even as opinion polls indicate that a majority of people would like to see Japan shed its dependence on nuclear power, the administration appears to be trying to turn the clock back to before 2011, refusing to learn from the lessons of the ongoing Fukushima nuclear crisis.

By pushing his pro-nuclear power policies, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and officials of his administration are making light of the sufferings of people whose communities and properties have been contaminated by radioactive fallout from the crippled Tepco plant.

In Fukushima alone, more than 120,000 people remain displaced from their homes, and more than 1,600 people have died due to health problems, some triggered by stress, since the evacuation began — more than the number of Fukushima residents who died as a direct result of the 3/11 earthquake and tsunami.

TOKYO (AP)— Stigma, pay cuts, and risk of radiation exposure are among the reasons why 3,000 employees have left the utility at the center of Japan's 2011 nuclear disaster. Now there's an additional factor: better paying jobs in the feel good solar energy industry.

Engineers and other employees at TEPCO, or Tokyo Electric Power Co., were once typical of Japan's corporate culture that is famous for prizing loyalty to a single company and lifetime employment with it. But the March 2011 tsunami that swamped the coastal Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, sending three reactors into meltdown, changed that.

P.S. The world has changed... drastically.

You certainly don't think per your posting.

Japanese utilities have more than 17,000 tons of "spent" fuel rods that have finished their useful life but will remain dangerously radioactive for thousands of years. What to do with them is a vexing problem that nuclear-powered nations around the world face, and that has come to the fore as Japan debates whether to keep using nuclear energy after the 2011 disaster at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima plant.

The answer to that problem may lie in the Horonobe Underground Research Center, which has been collecting geological data to determine if and how radioactive waste can be stored safely for as long as 100,000 years in a country that is susceptible to volcanic activity, earthquakes and shifting underground water flows.

How much do we have/ UK? And so on..

Actually, no they didn't. And even the prevalence of hypothyroidism which was actually the subject of the study only peaked if you cherry picked the data.

It is people like you who spread Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt, and Confusion (FUD-Con) that are the real problem in Fukushima. FUD-Con has killed ~1650 people and will likely kill many more. Rad-Con has killed zero, and will likely kill few if any.

Thousands of gallons of contaminated water are being stored on site, with no permanent solution for safely disposing of it.
Actually, there is a VERY easy permanent solution for SAFELY disposing of it. What we lack is a rational populous so TEPCO is being required to come up with an excessively risk free solution.

As a result, the Japanese are spending ~3X as much for fossil fuels, the emissions of which are even deadlier than nuclear emissions.

I'm sure the fossil fuel cartel is pleased as punch to hear that! After all, they are getting about 3 times as much money for the extra fuel they sell Japan because they shuttered the nukes as is being spent on the clean-up and decommissioning, including compensation payments.

FOLLOW THE MONEY!!

Meanwhile oil and coal kill people by the 50s and hundreds, while we expect the "perfect" solution. Big Oil approves.

BTW is there any substance and or form of energy that is not dangerous? Is oil not forever toxic? Are oil burn products not forever carcinogenic?

Fukushima report.. warns US operators..

To avoid the kind of complacency over safety that led to the March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Japan, U.S. nuclear plant operators and regulators must be prepared to take timely action to upgrade plant safety features in line with advances in the understanding of natural hazards, states a report released today.

The report, Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident for Improving Safety of U.S. Nuclear Plants, was written by a committee of the National Academy of Sciences. The panel drew on Japanese and international investigations into the causes of the Fukushima disaster, precipitated by the magnitude-9 earthquake and tsunami of 11 March 2011.

Why is the antinukular petroagitateur back?

Oh, I know, I just paid 4 US$ fer gallon of goo (3 US$ of which to be shared between the Petroshaikhs-Big Oil'Big Banks-Federales-Local politruks).

That 4 US$ needs protecting, and cheapo nukular will drive prices down.

Hence the Enviro-Hysteria (focused on nukular, obviously). No excuse is too inane not to stoke more fear in the sheeple.

Cheapo nukular BAAAD!
Pricey petroleum GOOOD!

How much behind times because of delusions! The US is now the exporter of fossil fuels, duh.

You always ignored the oil in Norway, Scotland, etc. but were angry with your personal demons.
