Disaster Calendar 2011 – August 6 Entry

Today is the 66th anniversary of Hiroshima bombing when the U.S. atomic attack killed 140,000 people.

The Atomic Bomb “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by the pilot of an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, on August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, killing an estimated 80,000 people.

The death toll from the radiation and injuries climbed to 140,000 before the year’s end. The bomb destroyed more than two-thirds of the city and severely damaged about a third of the remainder.

It takes intelligence and courage to do the right thing!

Two atomic bombs, 66 years on, and a major nuclear disaster don’t seem to have made a significant impression in the Japan’s self-destructive psyche.

Five months after the magnitude 9.0 Mega Quake spawned the destructive tsunami that crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant, the reactors continues to leak radioactive material.

Enter Japan’s Doublespeak PM Naoto Kan

Using the occasion to deliver his skill of holding two contrasting thoughts together (with the aim of deceiving his audience into merging those thoughts as one consistent and therefore acceptable outcome), he has vowed to challenge “conventional beliefs” that nuclear energy is safe.

“We will deeply reflect over the conventional belief that nuclear energy is safe…,” Kan said.

While promising to “thoroughly look into the cause of the accident and to implement and secure fundamental safety measures,” he added.

What hogwash!

Japan’s Nightmares Have Barely Begun!

When the big one knocks Humpty Dumpty off the wall, Kan or the next PM of Japan and all of the country’s defense forces won’t be able to put him together again!

Japan PM asks Hamaoka nuke plant to shut down

Posted by feww on May 7, 2011

Japanese gov asks Chubu Electric Power Co to shut reactors at Hamaoka nuclear power plant near Tokyo

Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan has confirmed that his government asked Chubu Electric Power Co to stop all reactors at its Hamaoka nuclear power plant, pending  implementation of “safety precautions.”

Hamaoka NPP is located in Omaezak, Shizuoka Prefecture, about 200km (120 miles) south of Tokyo, an area known as the Tokai region, where Japanese seismologist believe a magnitude-8.0 or stronger earthquake could strike  within 30 years with a probability of 87 percent.

Incredibly, the Hamaoka plant sits on an active fault within an area where Tokai earthquake is expected to strike.

Of Hamaoka five reactors only two Nos. 4 and 5 are operating, which the government has asked the operator to shut down immediately. Reactors 1 and 2, built in the late 1970s, are being decommissioned, and Reactor 3 is offline undergoing maintenance.

“Should a serious accident unfold at the Hamaoka nuclear plant, the implications would be far-reaching as the Tokaido Shinkansen Line and the Tomei Expressway–two key transportation arteries in Honshu run within 20 kilometers of the plant.” Asahi reported.

Will the Company Comply?

“The utility’s spokesperson said that the government’s request would have major implications on the region it services because of the energy conservation measures that may have to be put in place. Chubu Electric services Shizuoka, Aichi, Gifu, Nagano and Mie prefectures.” The report said.

“The president (of Chubu Electric) said that he wants to hold his final answer.” Japan’s industry minister has said.

In reply to the question, what if the company refuses to comply, PM Kan said: “We will talk to the company to have them understand our intent fully.”

UNBELIEVABLY,  Japan’s “prime minister is not authorized to order the shutdown of nuclear reactors.” Said the report.

Fukushima NPP

Meanwhile, a 20km (12 mile) mandatory evacuation zone remains enforced at the Fukushima power plant, keeping up to 125,000 people out of their homes, as TEPCO technicians struggle to “stabilize” the stricken nuclear plant. Explosions at the plant, which occurred after it was  struck by the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and tsunami two months ago, were responsible for Japan’s worst nuclear disaster, to date.
