Edano: TEPCO's corporate culture requires change
Industry Minister Yukio Edano has warned the operator of the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant to quit backdoor lobbying on the subject of restructuring the company.

Edano spoke to reporters on Tuesday. He said the Tokyo Electric Power Company needs to change its corporate culture of trying to manipulate bureaucrats and influence politicians. He said the utility should look for ways to benefit users and consumers.

SoftBank to build 4 solar power plants
Japanese mobile phone carrier SoftBank has announced plans to build 4 solar power plants.

The projects are the company's first renewable energy ventures.

A power station in Kyoto will supply 4.2 megawatt solar power per year to 1,000 households. Another station in Gunma Prefecture, near Tokyo, will generate 2.68 million kilowatts, enough to power 640 households per year.

Iran to allow IAEA access to military site

Iran's envoy to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, revealed on Monday that he conveyed the country's decision to grant IAEA inspectors access to its Parchin military complex during talks with the agency last month.

The Institute for Science and International Security has been analyzing satellite photos of the nuclear facility at Nyongbyon, since the North declared in 2010 that it was building a light water reactor plant to generate electricity.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
US nuclear waste policy has 'completely broken down'.
[link to www.elp.com]

[snip]

March 6, 2012
The Blue Ribbon Commission appointed by US energy secretary Steven Chu in January 2010, to provide comprehensive recommendations for a long-term solution to managing and disposing of the nation's spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste, has released its fnal report.

The commission finds that the Obama administration's decision to dismantle the Yucca Mountain project (a permanent geological waste repository in Nevada) after $15 billion had been spent on it, was 'but the latest indicator of a policy that has been troubled for decades and has now all but completely broken down.'

The strategy outlined by the commission contains three crucial recommendations.

First, employing a consent-based approach to siting future nuclear waste storage and disposal facilities. Hitherto, trying to force such facilities on unwilling states and communities has not worked.

Second, that the responsibility for the nation's nuclear waste management programme be transferred to a new organisation - one that is independent of the Department of Energy and dedicated solely to ensuring the safe storage and ultimate disposal of spent nuclear waste fuel and high-level radioactive waste.

Third, that changing the manner in which fees - about $750 million a year - paid into the Nuclear Waste Fund are treated in the federal budget to ensure they are being set aside and available for use as Congress originally intended.

There is a requirement that the SPEEDI system be implemented for every nuclear plant in the event of release. It only works if it is used...
It was not. People were exposed to the plume needlessly.

This was criminal action by Tepco and controllers.

If they had heeded their own scientists who warned that the tsunami protection was inadequate, the meltdowns wouldn't have happened in the first place. Can't blame that on anyone else.

Tepco and the Japanese government lied to their own people and to the world about what was happening at the plants and continued lying long afterwards. They refused to do follow-up biopsies on children with thyroid lumps.

The shills were out in force denying and ridiculing anyone trying to make sense of it all.

His job[Kitajima]is to read radiation meters worn by the 3,000 people trying to clean up its lethally contaminated remnants. The most dangerous work is done at night, he said, after the main shifts are gone. A crew of 20 men is sent to pick up the irradiated rubble. Practically none of the men have families, much education or regular employment. They have no experience working in nuclear power plants. He compared them to day laborers in America. Within a few months, they accumulate what is regarded as the maximum safe dosage of radiation for four years, Mr. Kitajima said.

“Then they bring in new ones,” he said. “Everybody kind of admits to themselves that these are expendable people.”

Mr. Kitajima, who had left the cafe for work at the plant, said he was once part of a political movement that opposed construction of nuclear plants, but had dropped out. “The risk of working there is what I’ve done to atone for my lack of involvement,” he said. “We are trying to scoop the ocean with a cup.”
