my response to survey - "Global Opinion Survey on Japan’s Energy Policy Options"

Global Opinion Survey on Japan’s Energy Policy Options
: Please tell us what you think!

1. Your country... 2. Your affiliation...
3. Which option do you think Japan should adopt for its energy policy for 2030? 

4. Please explain in your own words the reason/s for your answer to Question 3. 

my response: 

Japan has earthquake faults and tsunamis, plus faulty reactors! It is no place to try and use a technology which is inherently unsafe. Nuclear energy is a Crime Against Humanity - human kind's worst mistake - ingenious but deadly! - as it is:

Commercial nuclear power generation is unsafe and criminal.

No entity has a right to shackle future generations with nuclear pollution and extremely dangerous and costly nuclear waste.

Nuclear energy cannot be a solution for climate change - it is not clean or green, and is ultimately untenable. As for battling climate change: Energy consumption in general needs to be refined and minimized - our societies "re-tooled." (There is no free lunch.)

Given that nuclear power is not safe was definitively proven with three the ongoing meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi 1, The Chernobyl Nuclear Catastrophe, and many others, any claims of safety or participation in nuclear power activities should be deemed criminal. The use of nuclear power constitutes a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack - - see Article 7: Crimes Against Humanity (ICC Rome Statute), section 1, 1(k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health; and 2. For the purpose of paragraph 1: (a) "Attack directed against any civilian population" means a course of conduct involving the multiple commission of acts referred to in paragraph 1 against any civilian population, pursuant to or in furtherance of a State or organizational policy to commit such attack; ….

See: "whats up: Nuclear Power Crimes Against Humanity & Environment"

• nuclear fuel acquisition and processing pollutes the environment, and is disproportionately detrimental to the indigenous and poor

• nuclear power relies upon inherently dangerous technology - no operator can truly guarantee safety (as has been proven...) - accidents do happen - they have, and they will again in the future if Humanity is allowed to continue exploiting nuclear power

• accidents at nuclear power plants cause great suffering, with serious injury to the mental and physical health of communities and countries; the effects of nuclear accidents are felt far beyond local boundaries and affect the entire ecosystem

• the operation of nuclear plants requires the routine release of radioisotopes into the environment; low level radiation kills - there is no "safe dose"

• the environmental contamination which happens during the entire nuclear fuel cycle and as a result of accidents has far-reaching and long-lasting effects on the health of humans and all living creatures by causing cancers and mutations with resultant suffering, death, and deformations

• there is no way to dispose of nuclear waste; nuclear waste will be a problem for future generations and for many years to come, and will involve the dedication of vast resources due to the short-sighted abuse of this technology during the current era

• • nobody has the right to shackle future generations with nuclear waste for any reason whatsoever!

Recently: Prosecutors in Japan have reportedly decided to accept criminal complaints against the government and Tokyo Electric Power Company over the Fukushima nuclear accident. A moratiorium prohibited the operation of nuclear power plants should be declared immediately.

5. Please let us know in your own words what you think about the accident at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant and about Japan’s energy policy in general.

my response: 

It is a true Crime Against Humanity and the Environment - against all of Nature, but especially the people of Japan. They have been intentionally misled into thinking that nuclear power was acceptable and safe. They are losing their livelihoods - their farms and villages; theirs lands, their air, their food, the sea, the land, the rain... all have been contaminated. Generations to come will have to live with this - and some will die; some will be deformed. The "accident" should not have happened in the first place - governments and corporations have conspired to promote nuclear power through immoral and criminal actions.

So now, the entire North Pacific Ocean is contaminated, even my home on the West Coast of the United States. I do not appreciate it and would be happy to sue the government of Japan, TEPCO, Westinghouse, and every other entity involved in perpetrating this crime.

Need I say more?
