Court Order Nuke Plant to Shutdown Because it Is A Danger to the Public, And They Agree

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-03-10/kansai-electric-plunges-after-court-injunction-on-takahama
Kansai Electric Power Co. fell by the most in more than 28 years, leading Japanese utilities lower after a court injunction prevented the company from operating two nuclear reactors, threatening the country’s return to atomic power five years after the Fukushima disaster. Kansai Electric, Japan’s second-largest power utility, closed down 15 percent at 1,047 yen in Tokyo on Thursday, the biggest drop since October 1987. The 20-member Topix Electronic Power & Gas Index slumped 3.1 percent, compared with a 1.5 percent rise in the broader index. The Otsu District Court cited safety concerns in issuing the injunction Wednesday in a decision that applies to the plant’s No. 3 and No. 4 reactors at its Takahama plant, according to court documents. The utility said it will begin shutting its No. 3 unit on Thursday. The ruling is a setback for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has backed the return of atomic power after the 2011 Fukushima disaster led to the shutdown of the country’s entire nuclear fleet. Kansai resumed operations at its Takahama No. 3 unit in January and the No. 4 unit in February before the latter was placed in cold shutdown on March 2 after an alarm.
This is big folks, the biggest story perhaps. Could be a first. Court orders nuke plant to shut down and they comply. Is this a model for USA to get them shut down?

 And finally, they come out and admit that there will be additional cancers in Japan due to Fukushima.    Then they minimize at 10,000.    It's probably 10,000,000,  one thousands times higher.

  1. More political wrangling. This plant was going to be shut down in exchange for other plants restarting. Your premise is false for the US because American plants are the gold standard for the world. Even TMI pumped out less radiation than the uncontained TVA fly ash spill. Containment systems work.

    1. Incorrect. And BTW, here I am again cleaning up your doubling posting shit. Typical nukists, shit all over the place and then blame it on something else.

      And then the coal lie. Solar does everything we need, no nuke, no coal. Anyone with a brain would just get on it.

    2. Coal produces more radiation per Gwe than nuclear. When are you going to acknowledge that? TMI was benign. Double posting is on you. I've actually deleted many double posts to be courteous. Nukes are no different than any other people. We all want to do the right thing.

  2. Anyone know if this is a legit anti nuclear site?? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    1. No its a stupid site, it links you to peoples name lists within a state. Baka!

    2. Most all antinuke sitesays are stupid. It's justthe way it is. Nuclear will never go away. Ever.

  3. To end all arguments on nuclear, if it were safe we would not need to bury it.
    In memory of 311 R.I.P. and I take stock in Stock.

    1. TY Mark, and if it were safe, even relatively, it wouldn't take 70 years to figure out where and how to bury it, or how to underground it, but keep it accessible.

    2. You need to understand the difference email between philosophy ando reality. There are many many things we keep secure.

    3. Why are you even entertaining burying the stuff? For crying out loud the material is more valuable than gold and you want to treat it like trash? Why is that? Just fission the stuff and it's destroyed forever.

    4. Secure, not for 3000 years nukist

    5. Ah the old "new gen reactors" will make the bogeyman go away lie. IF "new gen" ever becomes reality, the end fission product have at least 300 year Half life, 3000 years until "gone". Sorry, that is a non starter.

      Rate we are going, human race has less than 60 years on this planet, with a meltdown every 5 to 10 years.

    6. We solved the problem in the 90s. Ask Clinton why he killed the solution only to have South Korea pick up the pieces. Real leadership. Not. If you only knew what was accomplished.

  4. Nope, all those reactors have done is create more waste that is even more expensive to cask out and dispose of. You and yours have failed to fission away the waste.. Not once have you succeeded... the life you live now is empty of any form of innovation or success.. PS money doesnt equal success

    1. It's only waste if you don't reuse or recycle it. Only 5% of usable fuel is fissioned. The other 95% is what you call waste. So how come you aren't advocating using that? You and I recycle right? Burn not bury it.

    3. You seem to think one radioactive atom weighing about 1e-22 gms on average can somehow cause a deadly cancer in a body of approximately 2e27 atoms.

  5. Why would we want ANY more of your byproduct tritium in our water, why would we want anymore C14, why would we want any more of your acceptable releases... Stop making the waste. There, solved it for ya. just stop. You keep failing and failing and making everyone else pay for it. If these were businesses they would be dead, but they are not... they are for weapons production period. you can keep moving plutonium around, but lets face it.. they have to replace those bomb cores after 10-11 years right? they keep moving it around and saying its for power, its for experimentation... LIES. it was always DOD... DOE just came about to try and stop people from knowing the truth. NPPs are really just a step in the weapons chain.

  6. Your last sentence reveals your true intentions. Make the US weak in the eyes of a,world catching up. Napalm, nasal spray both made by Dow Chemical.

  7. Your last sentence reveals YOUR intention, to march goose stepping over the dead bodies of your former countrymen as you cash a paycheck. MAD and nukes made the world a deadlier place, and NOT for our enemies (those which you would have us perceive as enemies). You people...ugh with your false sense of disgusting superiority. America the Bully World Cop. Bullies ARE weak and feeble and scared. All you ever had was propaganda explaining how terrible our 'enemies' were and thats why we needed the bombs... but you little bitches NEVER used them and instead we had decades of conventional warfare, millions upon millions dead and always the dumping and lying and covering up and well.. murder. So there ya go, I did indeed reveal that i believe NUKES make America weak, and continue to weaken us through destruction of our wealth, health, and environment. Any gun you arent willing to use is a waste, and so far you've wasted trillions. And dont tell me that nukes are a deterrent to anyone... tell that one to Kim Un... you fuckin childlike liar. Caught in the cookie jar over and over.. no it wasnt me!

    1. Where are the dead bodies? You're delusional. Millions dead? What bafoonery did you read? Yablokov? Caldicott? Geez.

  8. You know full well that i was referring to millions dead through conventional warfare... i guess your reading comprehension is as broken as your comprehension of what is right and wrong. Although there are millions of excess cancer deaths and brainless babies because of your industry lies. Keep it up baby killer.
