a Comment to Consider, majiasblog.blogspot.com
made this comment in response to blogger Ex-SKF's article titled,
"Telephone Game of Fukushima Reactor 4 Spent Fuel Pool"
not having a plan.
a thing that is just unplannable.
there are any problems with SFP 4 drying out (which can be caused
by numerous things, not only cracking/leaking, not necessarily
crashing of SFP 4), then the common spent fuel storage will
be no longer accessible for "carbon-based robots".
(Maybe except of the kamikaze version. But, are these still
available nowadays? And, if still some kamikaze are available,
are there enough of them to manage such a situation?).
any serious problem with SFP 4 with its 1300+ spent fuel assemblies
will result in the common spent fuel storage pool burning off,
would in turn result in more than 7600 spent fuel assemblies
burn off in open air, more than 20 (twenty) reactor cores.
such happens, this in comparison would dwarf Chernobyl to a
such accident would be just UNMANAGEABLE.
it would be quite pointless to attempt planning in advance,
would mean the end of Japan as a sustainable nation.
to be honest, where should 30 million Tokyo inhabitants be moved
it's just unmanageable, and there is no point trying to plan
for such an "incident".
just bet on the hope that such won't happen.
it happens, central Honshu will become some kind of nuclear
Auschwitz which nobody is allowed to escape.
Korea, Russia and USA would use their marine fleet to shoot
down any of the radioactive Japanese boat people who try to
escape the Japanese nuclear wastelands.
HERE: I am concerned that this has already happened.
really must DEMAND TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY on the STATUS
of this MEGA-DISASTER.
cannot mitigate if we do not know the real level of present
and imminent risk.
of the true conditions at the plant coupled with a failure to
mitigate death and disease constitutes GENOCIDE.

charity doesn’t work for Japanese, posted
by Mochizuki on April 12th, 2012
mismatch of charity is becoming serious.
time passes since 311, though some people are already forgetting
Fukushima disaster, some people are passionately making projects
to help out Japanese, on the assumption that they want to evacuate.
most of the projects are facing the same problem that nobody
applies for it.
There are several types of the charity projects.
Hosting Japanese family for a few months.
Hosting Japanese children for a few months.
Giving web service for Japanese people, such as forum or video
leaders guess if it’s because they are foreigners, Japanese
people might be scared, or if it’s because of the lack
of advertisement etc..
none of them is right.
do Japanese want to do ? It’s “transporting their
life style with 100% security”, not “restarting
a new life”.
are wanting to transport
Furniture and electric appliances
Car and hopefully house
they underestimate / ignore the potential of living in the new
world, such as meeting new people, giving new environment to
their children etc.. they overestimate the cost of evacuating.
if they try to transport their entire life to out of Japan,
it would cost hundreds of million yen. They want a job before
leaving or want enough money to live until they find a job.
also want visa for the stability of life.
there is no charity project which can offer jobs, money and
visa even for one family.
about 10,000 people evacuated to Okinawa. Most of them are mothers
with children. Their husbands/fathers are working in Tokyo.
Why don’t they jump out abroad ? Because even if they
go abroad, they will have to come back to Japan in 3 months
when tourist visa expires and the conservative Japanese society
will not accept people who have once left Japan for evacuation.
It would be really difficult for them to be employed again.
What’s more, none of the radiation problems would have
been improved by then. Considering the financial problem and
the security of their children, they can’t make a huge
leap easily. Because it’s very difficult, they try to
ignore the fact. They don’t want to evacuate, so they
don’t apply for the charity offers.
make the immigration easier, numbers of people need to move
as a community. Even if it’s difficult for individuals,
number makes it easier. If they collect petition like they have
been doing since last year, they might make a country give them
the status of radiation refugee. Why they don’t work as
of the reasons why Japanese community doesn’t move is
their sense of responsibility. Now most of the communities and
companies are killing people by tying them up, but none of them
helps people evacuate in the opposite way, which is very unbalanced.
because those communities are locked in the bigger community
“society” and their sense of responsibility makes
it look like betrayal to leave the society.
analyze this behavior of Japanese people, you need to understand
what the “responsibility” stands for in Japanese
contains 2 meanings.
Don’t be hurt
Don’t hurt anyone
meaning of responsibility is slightly different from the one
in a dictionary. Most of Japanese people don’t recognize
Japanese society, it is the highest valued not to cause any
conflict. The meaning of responsibility therefore is defined
in social context. It actually has nothing to do with benefit
trying to be responsibility is a very unique trait of Japanese.
being responsible means manufacturing high quality industrial
products, it helps Japan grow in second industry like in 60s
culture works like an individual’s mind. They have smooth
and responsible face for others, but inside, they are in agony
being tortured by themselves. Japanese mind-set is just like
the one of a person with self-injurious behavior. Like a person
who bites their nails, scratches their skin, pull off their
hair, drinks till losing consciousness, sometimes looks like
a civilized gentleman at work, Japanese act politely but they
abuse themselves behind. It’s represented anywhere.
their own culture is the proof of education and intelligence.
Wherever they go, they can’t help comparing themselves
to other people. Though they are very sensitive for the feedback
of others, they love to hurt themselves.
self-injurious behavior is making Japanese people more careless
for radiation and reluctant to save themselves.[more

Blackmails Japan Government Over Re-Starting of Nuclear Reactors?,
Doubts linger over safety, necessity of nuclear reactors as
gov't eyes quick restart
close to the prime minister have commented that unless the government
clearly states that reactors which can be restarted will be
restarted, then nobody will come forward to fill the role of
chairman at TEPCO....
is not only the safety but the necessity of reactors that the
government has focused on in its move toward restarting the
Oi nuclear reactors. But since Kansai Electric Power Co. was
able to avert power shortages last summer and winter by asking
people to conserve electricity, the view among consumers is
that if effective supply and demand measures are adopted, then
there will be no shortage of power. (By Naoki Oita, Political
it Genocide or Suicide to Re-Start Japan's Reactors?,
says it is safe to restart two nuclear reactors at Oi plant
"The government on Friday confirmed it was safe to restart
two offline nuclear reactors in the wake of last year’s
earthquake and tsunami disaster as the country faces a summer
of power shortages.
one of Japan’s 54 units—in northernmost Hokkaido—is
in operation, but it is scheduled to be shut down for maintenance
work in May. Restarting the two reactors at the Oi nuclear power
plant in western Japan will mean the country is not entirely
without nuclear power...."
