Fukushima News 1/25/15: Abe’s Olympic Promise Broken by Tepco; 20% Ratio For Japan’s Nuclear Power

* Noter from MS101: Tepco to Miss Water Clean-up Deadline
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco) will not meet its goal of cleaning up the accumulated contaminated water at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi No. 1 reactor, extending the March deadline by about two months.

METI considers 20% ratio for nuclear power
Biz / Tech Jan. 25, 2015 – Updated 20:50 UTC-5
Japan’s industry ministry wants to have nuclear energy account for 20 percent or more of the country’s electricity supply by 2030.
The ministry has asked a panel of experts to start talks this week on the nation’s optimal energy mix.
The government’s basic energy policy calls for reducing dependence on nuclear power as much as possible, but still calls it an “important base load power source.”
Before the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011, nuclear energy provided 28 percent of Japan’s electricity.
All the nation’s nuclear reactors are currently offline. The 20-percent figure assumes restarting some, while scrapping other aging reactors by 2030.
The industry ministry also hopes to raise the aggregate share of nuclear and renewable energy to a maximum of 50 percent of total supplies.
The aim is to reduce Japan’s emissions of greenhouse gases.
It’s unclear what the expert panel will recommend. Some of the members apparently favor keeping the ratio of nuclear power as low as possible.

Nuclear evacuation drill held in Kyushu
Nuclear & Energy Jan. 24, 2015 – Updated 14:14 UTC-5
A joint evacuation drill based on the scenario that there had been an accident at a nuclear power plant has been held in southwestern Japan.
The drill encompassed communities in Saga, Fukuoka and Nagasaki Prefectures. The hypothetical accident involved a cooling water leak and a power outage at a nuclear plant in the town of Genkai, Saga Prefecture.
Residents living up to 30 kilometers from the plant had to evacuate.
In the city of Imari, Saga Prefecture, 170 residents used cars and buses to move to a shelter in Kashima City, about 40 kilometers from the plant.
For the first time ever in a drill, cars traveling along the route were screened for possible radioactive contamination. Officials checked to see whether they could completely test a vehicle within a 2 minute period, as assumed by the government.

Obama, Modi agree on anti-terror, nuclear deals
Asia Jan. 25, 2015 – Updated 14:53 UTC-5
US President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi have agreed to strengthen bilateral cooperation to fight terrorism. They have also agreed on a construction project for a nuclear power plant in India.
Obama is on a 3-day visit to the South Asian country and met with Modi in New Delhi on Sunday.
Both leaders agreed to strengthen measures against the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, and other extremist groups. They also pledged to work together for maritime security in the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean.
They also agreed that the US government will help the Indian navy build aircraft carriers.
Obama and Modi agreed that US firms will help with the construction of a nuclear power plant in India. The 2 nations signed a civil nuclear pact in 2008, but it has so far failed to deliver tangible results.
After the meeting, the 2 leaders held a joint news conference. Obama said forging deeper ties with India has a defining importance for his country’s success in the 21st century. Modi added that bilateral relations have reached a new stage.

War Made Easy How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us To Death (2007)

Documentary channel

Published on Feb 16, 2015

War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations.

War Made Easy gives special attention to parallels between the Vietnam war and the war in Iraq. Guided by media critic Norman Solomon’s meticulous research and tough-minded analysis, the film presents disturbing examples of propaganda and media complicity from the present alongside rare footage of political leaders and leading journalists from the past, including Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, dissident Senator Wayne Morse, and news correspondents Walter Cronkite and Morley Safer.

Norman Solomon’s work has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as “brutally persuasive” and essential “for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee.” This film now offers a chance to see that context on the screen.

Take a glimpse at what this extremely crucial documentary has to show for an utterly complacent population that has been made to accept the odious lies its “leaders” have and continue to make about the justification of war. Dare to bear witness to what and how your tax-dollars are being spent.
