Last week, Japan surprised the world by announcing that it plans to abandon atomic energy completely by the 2030s. But now in an abrupt turnaround, the Japanese Cabinet appears to be backpedaling on that decision, dropping any mention of the 2030s deadline in its approval of Japan's new energy policy.

@corbettreport CAN YOU PLEASE TELL US WHAT YOU THINK ON NUCLEAR FUSION EXPERIMENTS THAT ARE BEING DONE? For example: JET with it's ITER project. Look at what EFDA are doing? Also look at IAEA Fusion Energy Conference. I am worried this is more dangerous than nuclear as it is now but been made out like it is safer. I am not sure. So I would like you to look in to it and see what you can find? Does any one know about Nuclear Fusion and the risks? Any documentaries?

Early nuclear technology is dangerous and should be decommissioned. However, this doesn't mean the method cannot be improved and made far more safe.

The fluoride can then be recycled for use in water and toothpaste..
In the '80s, when Japan had a viable banking system outside the criminal system of the London City State, they built 6 of the world's 10 leading international banks. The British actively both threatened & bribed the top Japanese "officials" thus effectively collapsing that economy. David Rockefeller, in behalf of the Rothschilds, visited the Emperor & offered a "deal" that could not be refused: play OUR game or we will destroy you. Believe it or not, HAARP put the icing on the cake.

thorium still produces nasty byproducts. what we need is that new spinage based organic solar cell that contains PS1 or photosynthesis compound 1 and is capable of converting nearly 100% of the light to electrons. google it im not joking. :D
No worries. One solar flare for earth and electrical grid failure, nuke plants each have 2-4 wks of fuel for their back-up generators for cooling. Not worried.
