Abe to pledge resumption of Japan nuclear plants



"TOKYO--Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will clarify his government's plan to resume operation of idled nuclear power plants in a growth strategy to be compiled in mid-June, Kyodo News quoted sources familiar with the matter as saying Saturday.

The draft energy policy to be included in the growth strategy states that steps will be taken to restart reactors judged safe for operation by the nuclear regulatory authorities, they said.

The government will pledge that it will make utmost efforts to ensure plant safety to gain support from municipalities hosting nuclear plants, the sources said."

1. Good luck with that Abe

I think you're going to need it.
Every thing I read on this says majority of the Japanese don't want them restarted.

2. Having nuked the Japanese economy, Abe seeks to take care of the rest of the islands.

 

And in the same fashion.

3. Billion$ on the line with Japan's nukes

 

They have all the those nuke plants just sitting there. The bills have to be paid. Interest and principal are being paid out. Employees paid. There is nothing coming in.

The fuel pools will need lots of maintenance. Everything has to be kept up or it will blow sky high.

The owners will go broke in a few years if no electricity is produced. Them going broke will drag the Japanese economy into the toilet, if it hasn't already.
