Tomari Genpatsu (nuclear power plant) in Hokkaido is re-starting. 12 years ago, they had the same issue again.
At that time,Hokkaido power company and local government tried to manipulate the public opinion,which has been done for all the other nuc plants in Japan too. Most probably,to all the other nuc plants in the world.
Here are the templates that they prepared. If you have the same opinion,you are likely to be brain washed without noticing.
Power company ordered their stakeholders to send attendance to the town meetings to be held at 5 places in Hokkaido.The average number of the attendance was about 30.They were required to cover about half of all the audience.
Another template “27 years old,female office worker.having asthma.[I think we have to reply on nuclear power.I can’t live in the place of polluted air.My parents even moved house for my asthma.To save our ecology,we mustn’t reply on coal or oil power.] ”
More template “42 years old ,female,part time worker [I used to think nuc was dangerous,I couldn’t distinguish atomic bomb and nuclear power.but listening to the explanation,I learnt nuc plant can never become like a bomb.”

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.
