   No to the restart of Takahama Nuclear Power Plant!
The government and the power company, ignoring the public opinion and the  jurisdiction, are steadily promoting the restart of a number of nuclear power plants including the Takahama Power Plant in Fukui Prefecture. But, the chance to stop the restart of them is coming up to our citizens at the end of this month. Together Let’s grab that chance. The Fukui District Court has ordered to stop the restart of the Oi Nuclear Power Plant last May. Many people welcomed this judgement facing the damage of the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant accident straight from the front and ascertained the essential risk of nuclear power plant itself. But, Kansai Electric Power is ignoring this ruling, without waiting for the conclusions on its appeal immediately made, is trying to restart the Oi Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 & 4 and Takahama Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 & 4. So, many local citizens and lawyers have filed the Fukui District Court for a provisional disposition instructions to stop the restart of Takahama Nuclear Power Plant immediately to take effect,  And the decision is expected finally at the end of this month. Let us now rise up together to let people know that the local citizens and lawyers but also so many citizens all over the country are opposing the restart of Takahama Nuclear Power Plant unable to ensure its safety. Please sign immediately - Avaaz will collect as many signatures as possible by the day of the notification of the decision and brings our voices directly to the local people :

Signed petition
Kansai Electric Power and Japan Atomic Power recently decided to decommission their nuclear power plant, 3 units, outdated beyond the 40 years from the start of operation. The Mihama Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 & 2 in Fukui Prefecture and the Tsuruga Unit 1 in the same Prefecture will be the first decommissioning, after defining a new standard for the the operation period of the nuclear power plant “40 years in principle” after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. But, at the same time, Kansai Electric Power has applied the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for their review that is the premise of restart of the Takahama Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 &  4, which also passed 40 years from the start of their operation.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, following Sendai nuclear power plant in Kagoshima Prefecture, published a conformity assessment certificate based on the new regulatory standards and issued the installation change permission for the Kansai Electric Takahama nuclear power plant Unit 3 & 4 on February 12. They seem to allow the restart of sufficiently profitable nuclear power plants like Takahama’s, even if the decommissioning is old and low powered nuclear power plants are decommissioned. In other words, the safety of the citizens is ignored. But, now that the majority of people are opposed to the restart of the nuclear power plants, forcing the restart is the act of ignoring the respect for democracy.
If the Fukui District Court decides the provisional disposition order of the suspension of restarting Takahama nuclear power plant, it will prove that the civil and judicial power can stop the restart of nuclear power plants. Let us rise up together towards the favorable ruling of Fukui District Court of this month lest nuclear power plants restart without ascertaining the safety of citizens! Please sign urgently – Avaaz will bring your voices directly to the local residents fighting at site until the decision notice. 
Avaaz community stood up hoping for the future without nuclear power plants many times, since the accident of Fukushima nuclear power plant. Immediately after the accident, we asked the government for the world without the threat of nuclear power plants for mothers and children in Fukushima and last year to listen to the people’s wishes and not to restart Sendai nuclear power plant. Fukui District Court’s provisional disposition decision of the day after tomorrow is a big chance for the zero nuclear power plant – Let rise together with the local residents and lawyers.
With great hope and determination

Fukui Prefecture Mihamagenpatsu No. 1, Unit 2 and the prefecture Tsuruga Unit 1 of decommissioning, after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, the operation period of the nuclear power plant after defining a new standard for the “principle ’40”, for the first time of decommissioning will be. But at the same time, Kansai Electric Power has applied for a review that is the premise of re-operation to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for Takahamagenpatsu No. 1, Unit 2, which also passed 40 years from the start of operation.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission February 12, followed by Kagoshima Prefecture Sendai nuclear power plant, for Unit 3 & 4 Kansai Electric Takahama nuclear power plant, and published a conformity assessment certificate based on the new regulatory standards, issued the installation change permission. Even if the decommissioning is low power nuclear power plant out the old, primary sufficient profit has been promised as Takahamagenpatsu is, our policy is also to re-running no matter how old. In other words, the safety of the citizens I postpone a. But, now that the majority of people are opposed to the re-running of the nuclear power plant, that it forces the re-operation is the act to undermine the democracy respect.

If, if the Fukui District Court Kudase the provisional disposition order of re-running suspension of Takahamagenpatsu, will be proven to be able to prevent the re-running of the nuclear power plant in the civil and judicial power.

A Clean Energy Future Is Possible: A Message for the 4th Anniversary of Fukushima

March 15, 2015
Published on

‘The Fukushima disaster shows us exactly why we cannot and should not try to rely on nuclear energy to solve the climate crisis.’

“Ringing the bell on climate change.” (Photo: Light Brigading/flickr/cc)

Just ahead of the four-year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster, five organizations have issued a message that the only way to avert climate disaster is by embracing a clean energy future.

It was March 11, 2011 when the Great East Japan earthquake caused a massive tsunami which triggered a triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and destroyed thousands of lives and livelihoods.

Signs that the disaster is ongoing are clear: nearly a quarter-million Japanese people arestill displaced, radioactive trash has piled up in the affected region, radiation levels remain elevated, and clean-up efforts at the plant continue amid leaks.  And despite public opposition, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continues his push to restart nuclear plants.

But “there is a better way,” the Make Nuclear History website states.

The new site, which offers a humorous new video launched by the organizations—Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Nuclear Information and Research Service (NIRS), Public Citizen and Sierra Club—adds: “There is a way to power our lives without fossil fuels. There is a solution to climate change without nuclear energy. There is a future where we can solve the climate crisis and power our lives from 100 percent renewable sources and energy efficiency. Now is the time to create our fossil and nuclear-free future.”

“Now is the time to create our fossil and nuclear-free future.”The interactive video shows three energy paths—fossil fuels, nuclear energy and renewable energy—to highlight the problems, like higher carbon footprints and environmental and health impacts, of failing to switch to wind and solar.

The projected future under the fossil fuel and nuclear energy scenarios are depicted as apocalyptic.

“If the goal is heading off climate change, nuclear power and next generation fossil fuels are just an expensive and dangerous distraction,” the video’s renewable champion states.

The new site also invites viewers to take action on specific campaigns from the groups, like Public Citizen’s campaign to urge the NRC to enforce a dozen safety recommendations for nuclear reactors that were issued after the Fukushima disaster; and Sierra Club’s campaign to urge members of Congress to phase out nuclear power and commit to 100% renewable energy.

“The Fukushima disaster shows us exactly why we cannot and should not try to rely on nuclear energy to solve the climate crisis,” said Tim Judson, Executive Director of NIRS. “Japan’s decision to invest in nuclear rather than renewables left the country totally unprepared when calamity struck. Clean, renewable energy sources are abundant, affordable, and ready to go. They can replace nuclear and fossil fuels, which are two sides of the dirty, extreme energy coin.”

Greenpeace Executive Director Annie Leonard adds: “The Fukushima disaster is a constant reminder that nuclear energy is a dirty and dangerous distraction from real solutions like wind and solar. We should commit to rejecting costly nuclear pipe dreams and supporting the renewable efforts that can help avert our climate crisis.”

3 U.S. Nuclear War Labs Should Be Shut

3 NUCLEAR WAR LABS HAVE RUN AMOK, BLOCK DISARMAMENT, AND SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN
NEW YORK—The nation’s three privatized nuclear warhead laboratories are bloated, redundant, stand in the way of progress on real 21st century security issues, and should be shut down, a conference on peace and security here was told.
“These privatized labs have become a considerable racket” and this year will consume more than $4 billion for their nuclear weapons activities, said Greg Mello, Executive Director of the Los Alamos Study Group (LASG), of Albuquerque, N.M., which tracks their activities.
The laboratories are the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, N.M., the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) in Albuquerque, NM, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in Livermore, CA. Civil society’s disarmament’s efforts since the demise of the Soviet Union “have all foundered in substantial part because they failed to realize the central importance of attenuating and then eliminating the political power of these laboratories,” Mello said.
The laboratories are pushing “an ambitious plan to replace all current warheads and (nuclear) bombs with redesigned models” that will actually make them more destructive, threatening further to destabilize our relationship with Russia, and with their new delivery systems will cost taxpayers over time more than an estimated one trillion dollars, Mello said.
In a talk Feb. 28th to the Helen Caldicott Foundation conference on “The Dynamics of Possible Nuclear Extinction” in the New York Academy of Medicine, Mello said the labs “are the primary institutions through by which corporate prerogatives have replaced government decision-making in the nuclear weapons arena.”
“The labs were given sweeping new powers in 1996,” Mello recalled, and since 2006 all are fully privatized. “They now wield enormous policy power by a variety of means both crude and subtle, direct and indirect, and they do not hesitate to blackmail government whenever that power is threatened.”
Nuclear weapons should be banned, as dozens of countries are now considering, Mello said, “and the nuclear weapons laboratories should be closed entirely as part of such a ban.” “After 25 years of close examination of the labs,” he continued, “we have finally concluded, and for the first time, that the labs have no unique role in disarmament, nonproliferation, verification, cleanup, intelligence, or in any other mission” that cannot be performed “more objectively, cheaper, and better” by other institutions. All government-led and civil society efforts at reform have failed.
Privatization deepened the conflict of interest at the labs, since now the three labs’ directors corporate officers have a legal responsibility to advise the Secretary of Energy and the President regarding the (nuclear) stockpile while also having a legal responsibility to bring in more business, Mello warned. “What’s more,” he pointed out, “The corporations are fully indemnified and protected from the consequences of their many failures, misuses of funds, violations of law, and accidents, and they have never paid a dime for any of these.”
“It is now critically important,” Mello concluded, “to dethrone the nuclear weapons laboratories now in public, in the executive branch, and in congressional eyes to prepare for disarmament — to expose the transgressive nature of nuclear weapons institutions right along with nuclear weapons themselves. If we don’t, we won’t be able to grapple with the real problems this country faces.”
In 2002, Prior to his current position, Mello was a Visiting Research Fellow at Princeton’s Program of Science and Global Security.
The conference at which Mello spoke comes at a time when tensions between Russia and the U.S. are escalating. “As the Cold War heats up again, the U.S. and Russia maintain over 1,000 weapons on hair-trigger alert to be launched with a press of a button,” says Dr. Caldicott, an Australian pediatrician who has become perhaps the most prominent opponent of nuclear war and nuclear power.
Between them, Dr. Caldicott says, “the U.S. and Russia possess 93% of the world’s 16,400 nuclear weapons arsenal — a situation which is made worse by outdated equipment, negligence, poor maintenance, viruses, and hacking within the arsenals of both countries.” -30-

Landmark Court Decision Could Speed Diablo’s Demise

February 25, 2015

http://ecowatch.com/2015/02/24/court-ruling-diablo-nukes-demise/   Landmark Federal Court Decision: Will It Speed Diablo Nuke’s Demise? Harvey Wasserman | February 24, 2015New revelations about earthquake dangers have shaken the future of California’s Diablo Canyon nukes.

In a rare move, Washington DC’s Federal U.S. Court of Appeals will hear a landmark challenge to their continued operation.

The suit says Diablo’s owners illegally conspired with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to weaken seismic standards. “This is a big victory,” says Damon Moglen of Friends of the Earth. “The public has a right to know what the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Pacific Gas & Electric won’t admit—hundreds of thousands of people are put at immediate risk by earthquake danger at Diablo Canyon.”

Chomsky: Leaders Ignore Einstein-Russell Warning

The warning by theoretical physicist Albert Einstein and philosopher Bertrand Russell against nuclear war issued 60 years ago is being ignored by the world’s political leaders today at humanity’s peril, MIT philosopher and Professor Emeritus Noam Chomsky says.
Known as the Russell-Einstein Manifesto, it was issued on July 9, 1955, at a London news conference which Russell opened with the words, “I am bringing the warning pronounced by the signatories to the notice of all the powerful Governments of the world in the earnest hope that they may agree to allow their citizens to survive.”
“Surveying the record of astonishingly reckless and irresponsible state actions, repeated and often frightening accidents, and pure luck, one can only conclude that it is remarkable that we have survived the nuclear age thus far,” Chomsky says looking back.
“Internal government documents, oral histories, and other sources yield a chilling account of operative considerations,” he noted. Chomsky said that nuclear war and climate catastrophe are “the two grim shadows” that hover “above all reflections on world affairs and the commitments we must pursue.”
“Unlike the twin looming danger of climate catastrophe, the steps that can be taken to greatly mitigate the (nuclear)threat are reasonably clear, and can be implemented with dedication and political will. It would be criminal to let the opportunity pass,” Chomsky said.
Chomsky will speak on March 1st, the second day of a two-day conference about “The Dynamics of Possible Nuclear Extinction” sponsored by the Helen Caldicott Foundation at The New York Academy of Medicine.
Chomsky states, “A survey of the often shocking record also lends strong support to the conclusion that security is simply not a high priority for planners, if by ‘security’ we mean “security of the general population.”
What’s more, Chomsky recalls, The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has warned that “Nuclear war is the black swan we can never see, except in that brief moment when it is killing us.”
Dr. Caldicott is an Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear advocate who has founded several associations dedicated to opposing the use of nuclear power, depleted uranium munitions, and nuclear weapons. She has been awarded 21 honorary doctoral degrees and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling. #
