Japan just became the first industrialised country in the world to go 100% nuclear-free, but the government still refuses to let go of the possibility of the nuclear restart.

Thanks for joining the campaign to ensure Japan stays nuclear-free -- forever.

Gladly signed, but what tragedy that had to happen for the people of Japan to get this to happen. I hope we do not have to suffer similar fate to get our Country to make policy based on wisdom rather than stupidity and the profits.

Can't sign as I believe nuclear power is important to the enrgy picture. I do think these plants should be permanently shut down if they are older than the current models that are much safer. retrofit if possible.

Well, much like the American government, who are not served by their so-called "representatives," I believe it's the corporate-bought Japanese government who's being paid to sell their own (and, since air circulates) all the world's citizens out.

Amena expressed above what was my first reaction as well.
The petition is rightfully directed at the PM AND the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, because it looks like Japan does want to go on with nuke power. This suggestion comes from professor Yamaji, director general of Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth. He believes it is necessary to continue nuke power "because there isn't another energy source that can replace it and because the nation has a responsibility to further its global development using the lessons learned from the crisis". But he calls for an INDEPENDANT and TRUSTED nuclear regulatory authority, while the govmt. has other plans, i.e. to make it part of the Environment Ministry.
Let's hope the people of Japan will be loud and strong enough to stop these plans, there MUST be a start into a nuke-free future SOMETIME, and this sometime IS NOW.
I have FBed this and will spread.

More here:
drive already on to restart Oi plant

From the article:
Last month, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and key members of his Cabinet decided that firing up the No. 3 and 4 reactors at the Oi power station is essential to ensure a stable supply of electricity in the Kansai region in summertime.

Industry minister Yukio Edano, who oversees the operators of nuclear plants, has said the possibility of rolling blackouts can't be ruled out if no atomic energy is available by then.

NaturalNews) The news you are about to read puts everything else in the category of "insignificant" by comparison. Concerned about the 2012 U.S. presidential election? Worried about GMOs? Fluoride? Vaccines? Secret prisons? None of that even matters if we don't solve the problem of Fukushima reactor No. 4, which is on the verge of a catastrophic failure that could unleash enough radiation to end human civilization on our planet. (See the numbers below.)

The resulting releasing of radiation would turn North America into a "dead zone" for humans... mutated (and failed) crops, radioactive groundwater, skyrocketing infant mortality, an explosion in cancer and infertility... this is what could be unleashed at any moment from an earthquake in Japan. Such an event could result in the release of 85 times the Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl catastrophe, say experts (see below). And the Chernobyl catastrophe made its surrounding regions uninhabitable by humans for centuries.

Yet, astonishingly, the usual suspects of deception are saying absolutely nothing about this problem. The mainstream media (the dying dinosaur media, actually) pretends there's no problem with Fukushima. President Obama says nothing about it. Federal regulators, including the NRC, are all but silent. It's as if they think their silence on the issue somehow makes it go away.

Perhaps these professional liars in the media and government have become so used to idea that they can simply spin their own reality (and get the public suckers to believe almost anything) that they now believe they can ignore the laws of physics. That's why they have refused to cover the low-level radiation plume that continues to be emitted from Fukushima.


The fate of the world now rests on reactor No. 4
"It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No.4 reactor." - Mitsuhei Murata, Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland and Senegal, Executive Director, the Japan Society for Global System and Ethics

Mr. Murata's stunning statement should be front-page news everywhere around the world. Why? Because he's right. If reactor No. 4 suffers even a minor earthquake, it could set off a chain reaction of events that quickly lead to North America becoming uninhabitable by humans for centuries to come. Imagine California, Oregon and Washington states being inundated with radiation -- up to 85 times the radiation release from Chernobyl. We're talking about the end of human life on the scale of continents.

Here's how this could happen, according to Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy:

"The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements. If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident. The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors. Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo. In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks. As this has never been done before, the removal of the spent fuel from the pools at the damaged Fukushima-Dai-Ichi reactors will require a major and time-consuming re-construction effort and will be charting in unknown waters." (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/forum/218/nuclear-expert-fukushima-spent-...)

Note: He says "10 times" the Cesium-137 of Chernobyl. Others say up to 85 times. Nobody is 100% certain of what would actually occur because this has never happened before. We are in uncharted territory as a civilization, facing a unique and imminent threat to our continued survival. And both governments and the corporations that assured us nuclear power was safe are playing their "cover my ass" games while the world waits in the crosshairs of a nuclear apocalypse.


Fukushima Facts
To better understand the severity of this situation, read these facts about Fukushima reactor No. 4 which I have assembled from available news sources:

• Reactor #4 contains 1,535 spent fuel rods which remain highly radioactive.

• These fuel rods currently hold the potential to emit 37 million curies of radiation.

• Those fuel rods are stored in a concrete pool located 100 feet above the ground, inside the structurally compromised reactor building, effectively making the pool open to the air.

• The pool holding these fuel rods is "structurally damaged."

• "If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident." - Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy.

• "The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors." - Mr. Alvarez.

• Just 50 meters from reactor No. 4, a much larger pool of spent fuel rods contains 6,375 fuel rods, all of which remain highly radioactive.

• All these fuel rods are, astonishingly, exposed to the open air. They are not held inside any containment vessel.

• The total number of spent fuel rods across all six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi site is 11,421.

• If reactor No. 4 suffers a structural failure, the release of radiation from the 1,535 spent fuel rods would make it virtually impossible for work to continue on the site, potentially resulting in an inability to halt a massive radiation release from all the other rods.

• In all, the 11,421 fuel rods held at the Fukushima Daiichi facility contain roughly 336 million curies of "long-lived radioactivity." Roughly 134 million curies of that is Cesium-137.

• "Reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet." - Mr. Robert Alvarez, U.S. Dept. of Energy

• This amount of Cesium-137 radioactivity held in the full collection of fuel rods at Fukushima is 85 times the amount released at Chernobyl.

• The release of this amount of Cesium-137 would "destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is an issue of human survival." (http://akiomatsumura.com/2012/04/682.html)

• The mainstream media operates in a total blackout of this news, refusing to even acknowledge the existence of this immediate threat to human civilization.

• The mainstream media is, in large part, owned by General Electric, the very company that designed the Fukushima reactors in the first place. It is clear that GE is diligently running a total media blackout on this news in order to cover its own ass and prevent people from asking questions about the faulty engineering and nuclear facility site selection that led to this catastrophe.

I saw a program on Chernobyl and I have to say that although I am no fan of nuclear energy I loved the fact that no people could ever go there to live again and it has been taken over by wild animals . Wolves, who are constantly persecuted everywhere, were thriving as well as many other animals. IT was beautiful The land was still full of radiation but somehow they were doing fine.

Japan : It's Our Time To Shine - Don't Let Gov't Restart Nuke Plants ! Take Action@Avaaz

May Day Lei Day
Author Jeffrey Kent
Illustrator Minako Ishii

May Day has passed, but May still has a few days in its pocket and, anyway, who cares because every day can be lei day in Hawai'i, right? So it's not too late to pick up a copy of Minako Ishii's charming little picture book, May Day Lei Day (Bess Press). Exercising his penchant for unusual book design, Buddy Bess has published a reversible book, one that can be read back to front, or front to back well, front to middle or back to middle. Photos by Ishii and text by Jeffrey Kent express the joy and beauty of May and lei from pageants and competitions to historic events (the Queen Mum dancing the hula with Duke Kahanamoku). Sweet. --Wanda Adams, The Honolulu Advertiser

This is such an amazing opportunity, japan could lead the world and truly make a difference.
Australia had the opportunity some years ago to be GM free, we were in such a good position to take this path.
Unfortunately we didn't and now we are having the same kind of contamination problems as other countries.
My goodness we human beings are slow learners!
l do have some faith, l do believe that there are a growing number of people in the world who are expanding their consciousness and searching for new and better ways to live in harmony with nature instead of constantly trying to overcome / control it.

Already signed. I just wanted to congratulate the people of Japan again. People of Japan, the citizens of the globe rejoice in your triumph.

An underground plume of radioactive tridium has now begun to drain into the Connecticut River from the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant in Vernon, Vermont.

Good news: Vermont started fighting Vermont Yankee 40 years and now the battle is joined more fiercely than ever before.

But my comment is really about how many other things are like leaky or damaged nuclear plants and fracking endangered water reserves and toxic tar sands oil pipelines (things that will cause devastating impossible to repair damage) are there in the US, North America, Europe, Asia, Mother Earth?

Let the global 99% gain strength in celebrating this important victory of the 99% of Japan. In this victory let the global 99% vow to work together when Mother Earth is so seriously threatened by the greedy 1%.

Second explosion at Mitsui plant — FNN confirms depleted uranium — Kyodo: 3,400 drums with radioactive materials —

http://enenews.com/second-explosion-at-mitsui-plant-kyodo-3400-drums-with-radioactive-materials-fnn-confirms-depleted-uranium-at-plant-did-not-appear-to-have-any-effect-on-radiation-levels-videos/comment-page-1

FNN News says there are about 3,400 containers of depleted uranium at the plant, but according to Mitsui Chemical there is no damage to the containers. The second explosion took place at 8AM on April 22.

And the beat goes on. The beat goes on!

Thanks for all those comments...and thanks for taking action. Without huge pressure to the government, it will restart the nuke plants after brief "maintenance" period.

I've signed and noted, because I believe this is a very important subject! I wish the Japanese Government had learned with what happened last year! Also Australia wants to go Nuclear and I'm totally against it! However we haven't got as much water to use that! I'm against Nuclear, as it'll ruin the Land and everything as we found out with the Nuke Bombs during the last WW.

While the supporters of this petition are no doubt well intentioned, the facts of the matter are that Japan is, without nuclear power, wholly dependent on imported fossil fuels, the production & burning of which are both reeking havoc with the terrestrial ecosystem and greatly contributing to global warming.

If one genuinely cares about saving Lifeboat Earth, one cannot turn a back to nuclear power.
