    Ahem, smoking kills more people every year than this nuclear meltdown ever will.

    How about targeting that?  At least nuclear power plants generate something we all need and use.

    Smoking doesn't.

    Sounds like a reasonable plan. Certainly not ideal but probably the best option to date.

    Realistic alternatives?

    All fossil fuels:  Watch energy bills continue to skyrocket, watch carbon emissions go up, and kiss goodbye to air quality.

    Renewables?  Obviously not at the stage yet where they can take up the slack.

    What's the only other realistic option? Nuclear.  What else is feasible? Realistically?

    I think too many people are dreaming - fossil fuels are not going to work in a country as small as Japan. 

    Good job to ratchet up the nuclear plant safety rules - that's a big step in the right direction. 

    Japan has a power source right here that can be switched on. 

    Nuclear. It's worked fine for 6 decades and there was barely a peep from the general public about its feasibility, safety or economics.

    Is anyone else astounded that the Biblical story of the Great Flood - (apparently) a planet-wide event in which a supposedly "all loving" god wipes out every single thing on the face of the planet - is a children's story?

     "as consumers brace for the country’s first sales tax rise for over 15 years."

    Brace?

    Govt.'s package is a total over reaction in my view.

    My country's govt. introduced a 10% sales tax overnight with no stimulus package.

    People just took it in their strides.

    Now, sales tax is 15% and economy is rocking.

    Frungy, that's interesting - my eyes have been itching since Monday, too.

    I thought it might be the onset I hayfever, but I don't get hayfever.

    Zichi - "Reactor restarts should be limited to those with updated safety standards and not in areas likely to experience powerful earthquakes or active volcano's."

    Agreed 100%.

    Zichi - "Nuclear energy can't solve the energy problems of the country, and even uranium is expected at its current use to run out in about 85 years. Renewable energies will be around, well forever."

    But renewable energies aren't ready at the moment to take up any major slack in Japan's energy requirements.

    Don't get me wrong - I am 1000% supportive of introducing renewable energies.

    But the reality is as I stated above.

    Kimuzukashii - "Solar wind and wave energy, please."

    Solar wind and wave energy aren't ready at the moment to take up any major slack in Japan's energy requirements.

    Maybe - hopefully - in the future they will be.

    But we don't live in the future.

    This is now and we need energy now.  Nuclear can provide energy now.

    That's the bottom line, IMO.

    60 years and not a single major accident or meltdown until Fukushima.

    Shut down the entire industry because of 1 accident in 6 decades? 

    While we're at it, why not shut down the auto industry for being dangerous, too?

    Where else is sufficient power going to come from?

    That's my question. Nuclear always was going to be a big part of Japan's energy mix.

    One of the former PMs of my country did the same thing back in the 80s. He kept the undated resignation letters of his entire cabinet in his drawer.

    Great idea. It doesn't get more grassroots than sharing food around the dinner table.

    Complaining about a handshake....it's about the only thing the Republicans can do to attempt to remain relevant in a world that's all but forgotten them. 

    Lol!! :-)

    The same Republican party that was instrumental in bringing down the global economy in 2009 is now complaining about a handshake??

    I also read my phone all the time when I am walking because it keeps my reflexes razor sharp:- Am I going to collide with a power pole or Yamada-kun from Accounting out for a stroll?

    Walk into a parked car or a bush, a phone box or Miho-chan from the bakery?

    So many choices, so little time.....! :-)

    I hold personal competitions with myself each day to see how many of my fellow pedestrians - the silly ones who are looking where they are going instead of reading Nikkei, selling shares, reading Japan Today, checking the weather in nowhereville, etc. on their phones - I can annoy. :-)

    Yes, we all do it.

    I'm glad the article is truthyfulness on this point.

    A Y5.4 trillion economic stimulus package to soften the blow of a 3% increase in consumption tax??

    [Howls of laughter..!]

    Who is JGOV trying to kid?

    When my home country introduced a 12.5% sales tax (that's 0 to 12.5% tax overnight) there was no 'stimulus package' and -amazing - everyone woke up next morning and no one died.
