Noda has got the schedule for Friday night.
Having said he would not meet the protestors, he is going to have a talk with the organizers of the Ajisai protest from the criticisms that Noda underrates public consensus. (cf. [Ajisai revolution] Noda rejected to talk to protestors)
He’s going to meet the organizers of the protest from Metropolitan coalition against nukes, which consists of 13 citizen groups and individuals.
Noda is bravely to convince the protest of the safety of the restarted nuclear plants. [Link]
Also, on 8/2/2012, Noda had a lunch meeting with Ms. Okazaki, Democratic Party member of the House of Councilors or Ms. Ohkawara to support Ex-prime minister Kan.
Anti-nuclear members said, Noda stated he won’t restart nuclear plants in rapid succession. He is going to judge on the new strict safety standard under the control of Japanese Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
However, the chief of Japanese nuclear regulatory commission is highly likely to be a pro-nuclear scientist. Additionally, he can’t be replaced for 5 years after inauguration. They don’t disappoint us as always. Probably Japanese nuclear regulatory commission is presumed to be the biggest supporting organization for nuclear industry.[Link]
Tanaka Shunichi, the candidate of the new chairman of Japanese nuclear regulatory commission has stated if it’s lower than 100mSv, the possibility of pediatric cancer is less than 1% based on ICRP advisory84. (Lecture about decontamination held in Fukushima university regulatory policy department, 6/3/2011.)
Saito, sub-chief of cabinet secretary pointed out Tanaka received 290,000 JPY from pro-nuclear organizations such as Japan Atomic energy regulations organization for giving lectures about decontamination in 2011. It was issued in the board of directors of House of Representatives Steering Committee held on 8/2/2012.[Link]
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.
