Re: Fukishima Developments

Japan's government has long promised that Tokyo Electric Power, the company that owns the plant, will eventually pay the money back.

But on Monday it admitted that electricity consumers would be forced to pay a portion of the clean up costs through higher electricity bills.

Critics say this is effectively a tax on the public to pay the debt of a private electricity utility.

The fault that caused the earthquake and tsunami is still causing trouble.

Re: Fukishima Developments

The total cost of decommissioning the stricken nuclear power plant at Fukushima and providing compensation to victims has nearly doubled, with a new estimate placing the cost at $250 billion.

Five and a half years after the nuclear disaster, the painstaking work of cleaning up the radioactive disaster zone is progressing very slowly

Meanwhile, more Nuclear Reactors are being built.

In a perverse way all that money spent on clean up is good for the economy.
Likely more economic boost than the nuclear station in operation.

Re: Fukishima Developments

They didn't say they were spending all that money on clean up, they just defined the cost.

Save the Whales! ... but let them irradiate the Oceans?

Why isn't Japan in the International Court of Justice being forced to fix this issue or the UN sorting out an International collaboration to do so?

How about trying to keep it simple like the point of working is not to spend time at work but is to produce goods or services of value. If someone spends their life digging holes and filling them in again they have achieved nothing of benefit for the economy even though they have been fully employed. Further, someone being fully employed on a completely worthless task also means that the economy has lost the opportunity of using them to produce worthwhile things and yet still has a mouth to feed.

Re: Fukishima Developments

Lest we forget:

Cleaning up the plant, scene of the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl after it was struck by a magnitude-9 earthquake and tsunami on the afternoon of 11 March 2011, is expected to take 30 to 40 years, at a cost Japan's trade and industry ministry recently estimated at 21.5tr yen ($189bn).

Water contamination:

Tepco's once-vaunted underground ice wall, built at a cost of 24.5bn yen, has so far failed to completely prevent groundwater from leaking into the reactor basements and mixing with radioactive coolant water.
The structure, which freezes the soil to a depth of 30 metres, is still allowing 150 tonnes of groundwater to seep into the reactor basements every day, said Yuichi Okamura, a Tepco spokesman. Five sections have been kept open deliberately to prevent water inside the reactor basements from rising and flowing out more rapidly. "We have to close the wall gradually," Okamura said. "By April we want to keep the influx of groundwater to about 100 tonnes a day, and to eliminate all contaminated water on the site by 2020."

Re: Fukishima Developments

22% of seawall building finished in areas hit by 2011 tsunami

The central government and local governments in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures plan to build 405 kilometers of seawalls along the coast. But only 88 km, or 22%, had been completed by Jan 1 while 263 km were still under construction. Work had not even started on the other 54 km of walls.

Japan marked the sixth anniversary on Saturday of the March 11, 2011 disasters that also triggered the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant catastrophe.
