Cooperation or Extortion?
#1
TEPCO to work with local government on nuclear plant review http://www.reuters.com/article/us-japan-...SKBN1952HU

Excerpt:

"The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant, the world's biggest nuclear power plant, has been completely offline since 2012 while its safety procedures are reviewed.

Ryuichi Yoneyama, the governor of Niigata prefecture in north west Japan where the plant is located, has said he will not discuss the restart until the review is completed. This includes a review of the plant's safety, evacuation plans, plus the impact on health of the radiation released from Fukushima, which could take until 2020 at the earliest.

"We will cooperate with the review," incoming CEO Tomoaki Kobayakawa, told reporters on Wednesday.

Tepco presented several options for restarting the plant in a business plan approved last month, including restarting two of its seven reactors by March 2020.

Kobayakawa said profits from restarting the plant would provide a big source of funds to fulfill Tepco's responsibility for Fukushima and improve the company's value."

That almost sounds like extortion.
