Yes, bulldoze the forests to put up solar in a country that is cloudy most of the year. 2.3 MW? Are you kidding? Nuclear reactors are usually over 1000 MW. You'd have to bulldoze all of Japan to put up solar cells to make 1 or 2 nuclear plants.

Not sure why food prices are excluded. Just because something is "volatile" doesn't mean that it should be ignored. There are ways to calculate confidence intervals based on the variance. That is what every other discipline does.

So what? Japan has no military and America wouldn't do anything even if Chinese troops landed on Kyushu, much less the Senkakus. It's time that Japan should try to stand on its own. Crimea has shown everyone that America can't be relied on for protection.

Keeping these reactors offline for so many years is really dangerous because when they restart (and they will restart), all the engineers and people who run these plants will not remember how to do their jobs correctly after so many years of not doing it. We need the plants to restart as soon as possible so save our economy and create a safer country.
