Kiyoshi Kurokawa, who was the chairman of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Investigation Committee (National Diet Accident Investigation) by the Diet, held a press conference at the Japan National Press Club on the 4th, and there is concern that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which was established after the Fukushima nuclear accident, will be isolated. Was expressed.As a result of investigations including hearings from more than 1,000 people concerned, inspections of nine nuclear power plants, and overseas investigations, the National Assembly Accident Report found that the root cause of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident was “regulations” and “regulations”. In July 2012, we compiled a survey report stating that there was a social structure and situation peculiar to Japan that could ...

Japanese society that has not changed even after the nuclear accident (Mr. Kiyoshi Kurokawa / Former Chairman of the Tokyo Electric Power Fukushima Nuclear Power Station Accident Investigation Committee (National Diet Accident Investigation))

From a press conference hosted by the Japan National Press Club (March 4, 2016)Kiyoshi KurokawaDo you think Japan has changed five years after the Fukushima nuclear accident? One of the central messages of the TEPCO Fukushima Nuclear Power Station Accident Investigation Committee (National Diet Accident Report) was the group sink. The structure peculiar to Japanese society, in which homogeneous people are always in the same organization, has created a situation in which there is no objection within the organization, even though there are various ideas personally. It is only the Japanese way of doing things that has continued since the Edo period that it is not clear who decides and who is in charge. This structure peculiar to Japanese society is behind the Fukushima nuclear accident, and s...

Increasing threats of climate change and nuclear war “Doomsday Clock” is “2 minutes remaining”

The US magazine “Brettin of the Atomic Scientists” recently announced that the “Doomsday Clock” time, which conceptually indicates the time remaining until the last day of the earth, is “2 minutes remaining” until the “end”. “Doomsday Clock” has shown the threat of the destruction of the earth due to nuclear war since the early Cold War era. This time, due to delays in climate change countermeasures and strong concerns about North Korea’s nuclear test, it took another 30 seconds from last year, and it was the shortest in history with the same “2 minutes remaining” as in 1953, when the nuclear test competition was overheating.According to the magazine, the reason why the Doomsday Clock has become the shortest in history is that “world leaders have not effectively responded to the threat of...

A report by the Science Council of Japan on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident

Academic societies and organizations involved in nuclear safety need to have a mechanism to evaluate new findings on natural phenomena, consider whether nuclear facilities should take countermeasures, and make recommendations. The Science Council of Japan (Chairman Juichi Yamagiwa) has received a heavy lesson that inadequate tsunami countermeasures led to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of Tokyo Electric Power Company. We have recently compiled and published the report.The report is entitled “Tsunami Countermeasures for Nuclear Power Plants in Japan-Issues Obtained from Tsunami Response Before the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Accident-” and consists of 44 pages including materials. The Science Council of Japan’s Comprehensive Engineering Committee...
