Tokyo mayor, “Anti-nuclear is as stupid as monkey”



On 2/10, 279,881 people have voted for ballot initiative in Tokyo, which is more than the legal limit of 214,236 (1/50 of constituency).
This is enough to make Tokyo mayor submit the legislative bill of ballot initiative for nuclear power to the metropolitan assembly.
If the legislative bill passes, Tokyo city government has to hold a ballot initiative for nuclear power.
This is a first step for Japanese national vote for nuclear.
However, Tokyo mayor Ishihara stated, he will not submit the bill.

He talked on the press conference on 2/10/2012,
Anti-nuclear movement is driven by pity sentiment to be scared of nuclear with no alternative plan.
Civilization has been improved overcoming lots of mistakes.
Abandoning nuclear technology means devolution to the monkey.
Power companies apart from Tepco or Kanden have only 3% of share, obviously that’s not enough for Tokyo.
Ballot initiative for nuclear power is impossible and I have no intention to realize it.





About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
