Takahama TIPPING point, Japan court rules reactor cannot restart regardless of what the supposed "regulator" says

I don't have time to write a full article and do my own research, but this is a big deal

TIP it folks.   Visit news sites and drop comments and links

A provisional injunction handed down Tuesday by the Fukui District Court against the restarting of Kansai Electric Power Co.’s Takahama No. 3 and 4 reactors is a boost to opponents of nuclear power, even as the decision draws criticism from senior politicians, nuclear regulators, Kepco, and pro-nuclear Japanese media.

PS I am banned from speaking at Japan Times, they are not so interested in the truth. 


  1. Here is something to slap SocRef/A4P/Turd/MBP/MetaWeird/JaAnus upside the head with. No need for an "ugly stick", as i would be willing to wager that he already has a "face meant for radio". :lmao

    Quote: "Japan is now one of the world’s four largest markets for solar panels and a large number of power plants are coming onstream, including two giant arrays over water in Kato City and a $1.1 billion solar farm being built on a salt field in Okayama, both west of Osaka.

    “Solar has come of age in Japan and from now on will be replacing imported imported uranium and fossil fuels,” said Tomas K√•berger, executive board chairman of JREF.

    “In trying to protect their fossil fuel and nuclear (plants), Japan’s electric power companies can only delay developments here,” he said, referring to the 10 regional monopolies that have dominated electricity production since the 1950s.

    Japan is retiring nearly 2.4 gigawatts of expensive and polluting oil-fired energy plants by March next year and switching to alternative fuels. Japan’s 43 nuclear reactors have been closed in the wake of the 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima power plant after an earthquake and a tsunami – since then, renewable energy capacity has tripled to 25 gigawatts, with solar accounting for more than 80 percent of that."

    1. I think Gollum would have better qualities than this troll thingy.
