Saturday, the cooling system to the fuel pool of the reactor 4, has failed and has been stored for a day and a half, at the risk of reaching the temperature limit on the fuel rods and running the danger that the core melted, but no information was passed to the organs of communication. The Kepco has given the green light in mid-June by local authorities and the government in Tokyo to restart the Units 3 and 4 of Oi based on the results of stress tests and inspections, though some seismologists have expressed doubts about the decision since the measures Additional against possible earthquakes and tsunamis will be completed just over three years.
The purpose of Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has been clarified immediately: the departure from nuclear power, which generates 30% of the energy needs of the whole of Japan, among other things now obliged to expensive imports of fossil fuels, will be gradual but not immediate because even the start of new renewable plants in nature, they will soon replace the current production guaranteed by nuclear power plants. Japan has found (for now) nuclear power: "I have no doubt that times have changed and that the turning point is near," he assured two weeks ago Kenzaburo Oe, the Nobel Prize for Literature and one of the promoters of " Sayonara nuclear power plants ", leaving the residence of Prime Minister after the delivery of the 7.5 million signatures for the petition against the atom as a civil and be eliminated through a national referendum Italian.
