深まる世界の主流の変化 by limitlesslife

皆様

12日発出した英文発信文をお届けいたします。

 

トランプ次期大統領の選出に関する所感を含むDr.Scilla Elworthy氏宛返信の要点は添付の通りです。

なお、Dr. Elworthyはノーベル平和賞に3度ノミネートされた平和活動家です。同氏は私の唱える母性文明の理解者で、3年前に女性の地位向上を目指す「Rising Women, Rising World」を起ち上げております。

同氏より福島第一1号機の建屋の撤去が完成し青天井となったことに懸念を伝える下記掲載の記事が寄せられました。

 

1.福島からの放射能流出による地球の核汚染は悲しいかな止めることが出来ない。

 

2.ご指摘の英国のメディアのみならず、世界の主流は福島の核災害を無視し続けている。

 世界の主流は未だに核エネルギーに執着しているが、トランプ次期大統領の誕生は既に始まっている。

 この主流の変化を決定的に深めることとなった点で評価される。

 

3.米国での政権移行を受け入れられるものとするために必要とされるのは母性文化的思考形態である。

 オバマ大統領ならではのイニシャチヴにより実現した同大統領・トランプ次期大統領の会談は極めて意義深いものであった。

 トランプ次期大統領はオバマケアの一部への支持を快諾するなど理解力と聡明さを示した。

 

4.新たな世界の主流が天地の摂理に沿うものと成るよう祈るのみである。この度、フランシスローマ法王が貧しいものに対して、これまで無視してきたことを謝罪し、ホームレスの人々を何人かヴァチカンに招待したことは極めて意義深い。

 

5.世界はあまりにも複雑でその先行きは具体的に予見し難い。しかし歴史の法則を意味する天地の摂理という哲学に頼ることが出来る。これによれば「傲れる者久しからず」、「全ての独裁は終焉せしめられる」である。

 

6.この哲学によりより明るい将来への希望を抱き続けることが出来る。

 

皆様のご理解とご支援をお願い申し上げます。

Subject: Re: Crippled Fukushima reactor now fully exposed

 

Dear Dr. Scilla Elworthy,

 

Thank you very much for the alarming information.

The regrettable nuclear contamination of the globe is thus unstoppable.

Just like theUK media you refer to,the mainstream of the wold continues to ignore the ongoing disaster at Fukushima.

It is for this reason that I evaluate the advent of the new President-elect Donald Trump as having decisively deepened the already commenced change of the main stream of the world, persistenly attached to nuclear energy.

 

It is a maternal way of thinking that will secure the acceptable transition of power in the States.

The meeting between President Obama and President-elect Trump realized thanks to President Obama’s inimitable maternal initiative seems to have been extremely significant.  Mr. Trump has shown his capacity of understanding and wisdom, expressing readily his support for the essentials of the Obama care.

 

I can only hope for the birth of a new main stream in conformity with the will of heavens and the earth.

The latest initiative of Pope Francis to apologize the poor for having ignored them and to have invited some of homeless people to the Vatican is quite meaningful.

 

The world is too complex to describe and foresee its future.

We can, however, depend on philosophy, that is to say, the will of heavens and the earth or the law of the history researched by philosophy, such as the inevitable fall of the arrogant and dictatorships.

 

We could thus stay always hopeful for a better future.

 

With warmest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Hi All,

 No doubt to the satisfaction of the nuclear industry and our energy ministry, the UK media continues to ignore the ongoing disaster at Fukushima.

Fukushima’s Nuclear Plant reactor No. 1 has been fully exposed for the first time since the March 2011 tragedy, after the utility company safely removed the last cover sheet of the temporary protective construction.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) used an industrial crane to lift the last of its 18 protective panels Thursday. Each of the panels weighs around 20 tons and measure 23 by 17 meters.

The protective cover was erected in October 2011 as a temporary measure to halt a radiation leak following a meltdown caused by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. The dismantling of the panels started in July 2015 and was concluded on Thursday.

At Unit 1, rubble from the damaged building caused by the hydrogen explosion remains scattered and needs to be removed. The entire site is highly contaminated and will now be covered with tarpaulins to avoid the spread of radioactive waste. TEPCO is using anti-scattering agents to keep the dust down. Small pieces of rubble that can create dust are being vacuumed up while mist sprinklers are being used inside the building to keep radiation under control.

TEPCO next plans to remove 392 fuel assemblies from the spent pool and clean out the melted nuclear fuel from inside the building, NHK news reported. The utility company is assessing the level of radiation before continuing the cleanup process.

Scientists are also installing the necessary equipment to complete fuel extraction which will only start in four years. Fuel removal from Unit 1’s depleted fuel pool is scheduled to begin around March 2021, according to TEPCO’s Mid- and Long-Term Roadmap that was revised in June 2015.

In March 2011, a tsunami destroyed emergency generators at the plant. They had been cooling the reactors. The tsunami led to three nuclear meltdowns and the release of radioactive material. In Reactor 1, overheating caused the creation of hydrogen gas. On March 12, an explosion in Unit 1 destroyed the upper part of the building.

TEPCO’s decommission plan for the Fukushima nuclear power plant implies at least a 30-40 year period before the consequences of the meltdown are fully eliminated. So far the clean-up efforts have already cost Japan in excess of $21 billion. According to the latest estimates from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the decommissioning costs will top $105 billion.
