The possibility that an active fault runs below the No.1 reactor at Hokuriku Electric Power Co.'s Shika nuclear plant has grown increasingly likely. If the fault were to move, the nuclear plant could suffer damage.

This is very serious. It is too bad that people waste time on nuclear energy -- when they would have a more linhabitable and beautiful earth -- if they would contain the nuclear waste, and use solar thermal, solar panels, wooden windmills, and tiny movable micro-hydro-electric dams on the sides of rivers and bays and in the bays.

When have the Japanese had the safety of their people in mind in building these reactors in the first place?

Why are the Japanese leaders so homicidal?

The head in the sand syndrome is not just a Japanese problem. The US NRC has been routinely rubber stamping the operations of nuclear power plants that should have been closed decades ago. My last job as a Quality Control Nuclear Inspector was the replacement of radioactive cracking pipes in the Dresden plant in Joliet, IL. That was in 85. That plant is STILL in operation. GREED, GREED, PROFITS above the welfare of the community is the ONLY reason these plants are still online.
