Radioactive Japan Shuts Down Last Nuclear Reactor!

Japan has now shutdown it's last operating nuclear power plant. For the first time since 1970, Japan has no nuclear power plants in operation. Before the tsunami and meltdown at the Fukushima Daichi nuke plant, there were 54 operating nuclear power plants in Japan providing 30% Japan's energy needs.

This summer will test the ability of Japan's infrastructure to provide enough power without the use of nuclear energy. If there are few problems, then the future of nuclear power in Japan may be in jeopardy.

And this story says there is no technological solution to cleaning up Fukushima...

Humans and Earth, a bright future or a dark future.

But come on folks, it's not just the super rich all controlling corporations, it's human nature itself. It's the way that we are as a species.

Our Chimp curiosity.

Never fear.
The up and coming:

There is Nuclear Fusion to come. It just builds a Sun, right here on the Earth. Sure why not? I bet we could figure out how. And that "probably" won't hurt anything. Right? And then we could build hundreds of them here on the surface of the Earth.

I think that turning the entire Earth into a new Sun could be looked upon as a "Bright Future" Don't you?

The up and coming:

And then we have Large Hadron Collider (LHC). How about we create a small BLACK HOLE? just a minute one. Even if it's the very nature of black hole to devourer all matter or all Mass.

I think that turning the entire Earth into a new Black Hole could be looked upon as a "Dark Future" Don't you?

The up and coming:
And if that's not enough, we have anti-matter to create. Cool Huh? And the theory is that anti-matter or negative matter will Negate All matter. That sounds fun. I'll bet you can't wait.

We could have one unimaginable ex- or im- plosion and then nothing exists. (NO MATTER) No matter LOL.

I think that turning the entire Earth into a NO MATTER could be looked upon as a "Nothing Future" Don't you?

"Eat, Drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we will die."

The Bible or Epicureans. Epicurus (BC 342-271). You pick. We're all going to die sooner or later. But will there still be an Earth? Or Humans.

Have fun Hippies!

Tee, Hee.

Try and fix it all, of course. But get out there and live life to the fullest.

Oh, BTW, we still have the "Eat, Drink, and be merry" original Hippie, 350,000 nuclear missiles, as well. Least we not forget. OH JOY!

What a crazy gamble, what fucking insanity!

After seeing the total inability of a high-tech wealthy nation to stop the ongoing radiation from that melted reactor core, it has shown me that nuclear power is not worth the risk.
We need to focus on installing renewable energy NOW so that we won't have a shortage and be scrambling to keep people from freezing to death some winter night in the future.

I'm not worried about fusion so much as the black hole. It's the only one that I'd actually consider useful. Dark matter and dark energy should really just be studied enough for us to be able to contain it. As far as Japan, they had samurai, so...

oh yeah, but this news is a bit one sided.. Japan hasn't any other minerals and fossil fuel to produce electricity, plus alternative energy sources are not that developed yet, last summer's power-saving setsuden failed, so this summer it's probable that there will be power shortage...
