TBSラジオ 荒川強啓デイ・キャッチ!(2017/9/13) 近藤勝重 圧力で北朝鮮(共和国)状態は解決しない、民進党と柏崎刈羽原発のことを語る&毎日放送ちちんぷいぷい 与良正男&三澤肇 国政解説 by limitlesslife

永岡です、TBSラジオの、荒川強啓デイ・キャッチ! 水曜日のコメンテイターは毎日新聞客員編集委員の近藤勝重さんでした。近藤さん、クライマックスシリーズは巨人でなくて横浜に来てほしいと言われて、対戦成績は巨人にトラは苦手、広島と巨人に弱く、横浜とヤクルトに強く、トラはサヨナラ勝ちが多く、一日の疲れが取れると、強啓さんもトラはやることが粋と言われました(笑)。

ニュースランキング、3位は柏崎刈羽原発、2位は民進党お家騒動、1位は北朝鮮(共和国)情勢、近藤さん、朝鮮半島情勢が関心の高いことを重視されました。

その関心1位の、共和国は国連安保理の制裁決議に猛反発であり、トランプ大統領は不満もいい、共和国は、核実験場で新たな動きとアメリカの分析サイトが報告、トランプ大統領は11月に来日、ASSと会談、アメリカの対日赤字削減について語るもので、これについて近藤さん、日米一体で圧力というが、共和国は屈しないというもので、これを侮ったらだめ、プーチン大統領は雑草を食べてでも言うものであり、意味深、共和国のトップは、国民は食べられなくても戦争するというのは、戦前の日本の、贅沢は敵、欲しがりません勝つまでは、今の共和国は戦前の日本の比ではなく、圧力で屈しない、圧力をかけたら反撃する教育をしており、ところが日本は馬鹿の一つ覚えで圧力というが、鍵を握るのは中国、核ドミノを恐れる、アメリカは最後の最後に軍事行動すると見たら、日本は何らかのパイプで話すべき、小泉氏の時の田中均氏のような存在はあるのか、強啓さん、日本には拉致問題があり、日本のアプローチでこれによる交渉が出来ると言われて、近藤さん、2002年は拉致と経済協力をバーターにして、しかしこのまま日米一体になって戦争の当事国になりかねず、もちろんこんなことをやっては絶対にダメ、しかし、今2002年の時のようなパイプはあるのかと指摘されました。

ランキング2位は民進党離党ドミノ、鈴木氏が離党、民進党執行部は困惑、合計5人が離党を画策して、強啓さん、民進党代表選の際にどうしていたのかと問われて、近藤さん、無効票8つがそれ、その段階からトンズラを画策して、若狭氏はオール阪神巨人の阪神さんに似て、オール巨人=オール与党化、後ろに小池氏がいるにしても、小池氏は関東大震災時の朝鮮人ぎゃくさつの追悼文を出さず、虐殺されたものと災害で死んだものは異なり、小池氏は右でも左でもないというが、実態は右寄り、離党組は、長島氏にしても右系でどうかと指摘されて、強啓さん、ゴルフしたら右のラフ行きと指摘されました。

3位は柏崎刈羽原発の審査案の取りまとめを規制委員会は先送り、事実上の合格ではなく、東電のこれまでの姿勢を評価するというものの、東電に審査はまとまらず、近藤さん、先送りではなく、これにごまかされたらアカン、社長や経産省の大臣に聞くのではない、あんな巨大な組織を社長で対処できず、規制委員会は体質が変わり、委員長の変更時にこんなことは、新潟県補選も関係して、米山知事は福島事故の検証なしに再稼働しないと言い、来月の補選に自民党は前知事の泉田氏を擁立、再稼働に反対していた泉田氏の擁立は、選挙に勝てる人材として、これは新潟県民に失礼、強啓さん、こんなにすっと泉田氏が立候補することの問題も問われました。

時事川柳、国防のニュースで隠す悪巧み、堂々と一線超えた100m(桐生選手のこと)、かぶります私責任彼パンツ(笑)、脱ぎかぶり漏れたらパンツ窮すです(万事休す)、近藤さん、2つ目をトップとされました。以上、近藤さんのお話でした。

 

なお、毎日放送のちちんぷいぷいにて、政界についての報告があり、毎日新聞の与良正男さんと東京報道の三澤肇さんが出られました。

東京報道の三澤肇さんが細野氏にインタビューして、様々なところに取材したらあちこちで揉めて、会派を作るにしても複数出来る可能性があり、次の選挙は生きるか死ぬかの戦いで、若狭氏は第2民進党ではダメといい、細野氏は誰が主導権に握るのかというものであり、若狭氏と細野氏は何度も会い、政策を埋め合わせて、長島氏はずれがあり、解散総選挙の話もあり、新党を年内に作るから、臨時国会に合わせるものと指摘されて、小池氏は都政をやる、国政は若狭氏というものの、小池氏のバックなしに新党は選挙を戦えず、であり、ヤマヒロさん、全員の意見がバラバラと指摘されて、三澤さん、政策の一致した人間で合わないと空中分解と指摘されて、与良さん、改革への取り組みを問われて、三澤さん、共和国への対応で現実的となるものの、そうしたら自民党と違いがなくなると指摘されて、ヤマヒロさん、新党に高揚感なし、与良さん、細野氏は改憲論者で、離党組は憲法改悪のみ一致して、しかしそれ以外はバラバラ。

与良正男さんが、来月のトリプル補選に合わせて解散総選挙の可能性は少ないと語られて、仮に自民党1勝2敗、ましても3連敗だとASS政権は死に体になり、今は共和国情勢で煽っているものの、3つとも自民党議員の死去による補選で自民党は勝って当然だがしんどく、理由はASS(abe Shinzo Shusho(c)想田和弘さん)にとって最優先は憲法改悪であり、衆参で2/3を持っている今の情勢で憲法改悪の発議をしたい(=解散総選挙で衆院が2/3を割ったら憲法改悪の発議ができない)、そのために、来年の6月に通常国会で発議→国民投票と同時に解散総選挙もあり、与良さんはそれは良いとは思わないものの、国民投票に持って行くのは針の穴を通すようなもの、しかし今解散総選挙となったら2/3を失う危惧があり、国民投票と解散総選挙の可能性があり、しかし来年末がタイムリミット、そして通常国会が始まると、森友学園問題、加計学園問題が再燃することになり、国民投票で憲法改悪→オリンピックを総理として迎えるのがASSの理想と指摘されました。以上、ちちんぷいぷいの内容でした。

NGOs complain to IOC over Tokyo Games environmental record

18 Comments

By Karolos Grohmann

Dozens of environmental group sharply criticised organisers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on Monday for alleged exploitation of tropical rain forests, claiming this was also potentially fuelling human rights violations.

In an open letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which is meeting in the Peruvian capital, 47 NGOs, including Greenpeace, said there was mounting evidence the Tokyo Games were using timber through companies associated with illegal logging and human and labour rights violations.

They added that organisers had not been transparent about the sourcing of the wood used in construction projects for the Games.

“Mounting evidence that Tokyo 2020 is exploiting tropical forests and potentially fuelling human rights violations is jeopardizing the Olympic commitment to sustainability and respect for human dignity,” they said.

“We urge the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Tokyo 2020 authorities to immediately disclose the timber supply chain associated with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, including the origin and volume of all tropical wood used, and to halt further use of wood from tropical forests and other high risk sources.”

Tokyo Games organisers could not be immediately reached for a comment.

Tokyo’s preparations for the Olympics have been anything but smooth with projected costs ballooning to more than $26 billion, though organisers reduced that to $16.8 billion late last year.

“Unfortunately, the Tokyo 2020 authorities have been secretive about the timber used for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and have failed to take sufficient action to mitigate the risk of using illegal and unsustainable tropical timber,” the letter said.

The group of signatories, which includes the Center for International Environmental Law in the United States and Germany’s Gesellschaft fuer Oekologische Forschung (Society for Environmental Research), said sourcing from controversial suppliers, with a record of tropical forest destruction and violating logging practices, was a contradiction of Olympic values and commitments.

This is not the first time environmental groups have raised concerns over the use of timber for the Tokyo Games, with the IOC pushing to reduce the size and cost of future Games with potential hosts having been scared off in recent years.

The relocation of Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market, a popular tourist destination, to build an access road that will cut down travel time for athletes has also been an environmental problem.

It has been delayed because of concerns about the clean-up of toxic pollution at its proposed new home, including unsafe levels of cancer-causing benzene.

Symtoms of a change

 

Dear Friends,

 

There are symptoms that allow us to foresee an important change in Japan.

The Japanese major media seem to start shifting toward supporting the retreat from the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.

The Asahi Newspaper and the Mainichi Newspaper, both of them sponsoring the Tokyo Olympic Games, surprised the readers by the following frank expressions.

 

< Olympic preparations have given rise to such consequences as the soaring of construction costs, the shortage of workers, death due to overwork etc. The Olympic Games that sacrifices human life and health is nothing but a sheer contradiction>(The editorial of August 14,2017)

 

<The Tokyo Olympic Games is based on the false assertion that “Fukushima is under control”, assertion that deceives the whole world. The Abe Cabinet passed by force the law on conspiracy under the pretext of the Tokyo Olympic Games, law that could restrict human rights and menace democracy. We should at least retreat from “the sickness of the Tokyo Olympic Games!”

(The evening edition of the Mainichi News Paper of August7, 2017)

 

The results of the nation-wide referendum among the listeners

conducted on 17 June by the TV Asahi news anchor Hiroshi Kume’s wide-show program entitled “Should we retreat from the the Tokyo Olympic Games 2010 ?”are impressive. All age categories except “under 19 years old”

have overwhelmingly(83%) supported the retreat from the 2020 Olympic Games.

 

Mr. Hiroshi Kume revealed in his radio broadcast of August12 that the Olympic Organizing Committee had addressed him opposing arguments. He told the listeners that they proved their “Olympic First”position, in stead of

“Athletes First”, explaining why the Tokyo Olympic Games is taking place at the hottest period in JapanJuly21~August9. The IOC had accepted the request of 3 American television networks to make the acceptance of it the prerequisite of the candidacy. Actually, the imposed choice of this hottest period is the target of increasing criticism, because of the obvious dangers of heat strokes menacing athletes, spectators, volunteers etc.( The evening edition of the Mainichi News Paper of July 29, 2017)

 

In view of the unimaginable impact the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympic Games, it could not but develop into a major political issue sooner or later.

In this connection, some former prime ministers are expected to play an important role.

Former Prime Minister Kan Naoto who experienced the 3/11 disaster while in office is engaged in pleading the world to stop

using nuclear reactors, source of humanly unacceptable consequences.

Former Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama voiced his opposition against it in his interview given by Japan Times a year and a half ago.

Former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi continues to condemn strongly the false assertion “under control”. He has established a relief fund to help American soldiers, victims of the TOMODACHI operation after the 3/11 nuclear disaster.

Among former prime ministers who have not taken position on the Olympic issue, some deserve special attention.

Former Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa played a role in promoting the removal of nuclear fuel rods from the unit 4 reactor in Fukushima Daiichi.

Former Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda is now drawing special attention.

On August 2, the Kyodo News interviewed him. He most severely criticized Prime Minister Abe, asserting that Japan would be ruined due to his control of high ranking bureaucrats by dint of the Cabinet Bureau of Personnel Affaires established in 2014.

(Japanese version: http://yuruneto.com/hukudayasuo/)

 

This interview has not yet been reported abroad, as of August 20, according to the Kyodo News. Its impact is expected to be far reaching.

 

An important change seems to be in the making.

 

With warmest and highest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Press Release: Radioactively-Hot Particles in Japan

New Study Shows Full Radiation Risks Are Not Recorded

PRESS RELEASE – 7/27/17 

Contact: info@fairewindsenergy.org

Today, the scientific journal Science of the Total Environment(STOTEN) published a peer-reviewed article entitled: Radioactively-hot particles detected in dusts and soils from Northern Japan by combination of gamma spectrometry, autoradiography, and SEM/EDS analysis and implications in radiation risk assessment. Co-authored by Dr. Marco Kaltofen, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), and Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education, the article details the analysis of radioactively hot particles collected in Japan following the Fukushima Dai-ichi meltdowns.                    

Based on 415 samples of radioactive dust from Japan, the USA, and Canada, the study identified a statistically meaningful number of samples that were considerably more radioactive than current radiation models anticipated. If ingested, these more radioactive particles increase the risk of suffering a future health problem.

“Measuring radioactive dust exposures can be like sitting by a fireplace,” Dr. Kaltofen said. “Near the fire you get a little warm, but once in a while the fire throws off a spark that can actually burn you.”

The same level of risk exists in Japan. While most people have an average level of risk, a few people get an extra spark from a hot particle.

According to Dr. Kaltofen, “The average radiation exposures we found in Japan matched-up nicely with other researchers.  We weren’t trying to see just somebody’s theoretical average result.  We looked at how people actually encounter radioactive dust in their real lives. Combining microanalytical methods with traditional health physics models,” he added, “we found that some people were breathing or ingesting enough radioactive dust to have a real increase in their risk of suffering a future health problem.  This was especially true of children and younger people, who inhale or ingest proportionately more dust than adults.”

Fairewinds’ book Fukushima Dai-ichi: The Truth and the Way Forward was published in Japan by Shueisha Publishing, just prior to the one-year commemoration of the tsunami and meltdowns. “Our book,” Mr. Gundersen said, “which is a step-by-step factual account of the reactor meltdowns, was a best seller in Japan and enabled us to build amazing relations with people actually living in Japan, who are the source of the samples we analyzed. We measured things like house dusts, air filters, and even car floor mats.  Collecting such accurate data shows the importance of citizen science, crowd sourcing, and the necessity of open, public domain data for accurate scientific analysis.”

Fairewinds Energy Education founder Maggie Gundersen said, “We are very thankful to the scientists and citizen scientists in Japan, who sought our assistance in collecting and analyzing this data. We will continue to support ongoing scientific projects examining how people in Japan and throughout the world experience radioactive dust in their daily lives.”

The complete peer reviewed report and project audio description by Dr. Kaltofen are available here at the Science of the Total Environment website.

東京五輪に高まる批判 by limitlesslife

Mounting criticism against the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020

 

Dear Friends,

Please allow me to send you this message that reminds us of the problems
confronting the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020.

We can grasp distinctly the spirit of the Olympic Charter is being neglected
as regards the political utilization of the Olympic Games.
Relevant prescriptions are as follows.
“The Olympic Games are competitions between athletes in individual or team
events and not between countries” (Chapter 1, clause6).
“The IOC and the OCOG shall not draw up any global ranking” (Chapter 5,
clause 57).

A special treatment of 5 years grace period, accorded to the limitation of
overtime work in consideration of the Olympic Games, has caused a tragedy
concerning the construction of the Olympic National Stadium. A newly
employed worker has recently committed a suicide due to overwork. His latest
monthly work time registered 200 hours surpassing the newly established
limit of 100 hours. This 5 years grace period must be abolished as soon as
possible.

A glance at the attached articles criticizing the Tokyo Olympic Games 2010
published in Japanese newspapers will be sufficient to understand the new
trend of the public opinion in Japan.The first criticizes holding the Games
in intensisive heat.The second is the similar warning by the Mainichi News
Paper, one of the 4 sponsorng major news papers.The temperature being expected to
surpass 34 degrees C. by then, it points out serious dangers of heatstrokes,not
only for the athletes,but also for spectators and volunteers.

Moreover, the same trend can be observed internationally, as evidenced by
the following article.

https://www.bloomberg.com/…07…/why-no-one-wants-the-olympics

I am convinced all the problems boil down to one question; Can the “under
control” assertion be still be trusted?

With highest and warmest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Retreating from the Tokyo Plympic Games

Dear Friends,
The results of the nation-wide referendum among the listeners
conducted on 17 June by the  Hiroshi Kume’s wide-show program entitled
“Should we retreat from the the Tokyo Olympic Games 2010 ?”
are extremely impressive.All age categories except  “under 19 years old”
have overwhelmingly supported the retreat from the 2020 Olympic Games.
The results could not but have a far reaching impact on this vital issue.
The future of Fukushima depends on it.
This development coincides with another significant  one.
In a surprise move, the International Olympic Committee announced on 16 June
that it was ending its Olympic sponsorship deal with Mcdonald.
The fast-food giant pulled out of its current, estimated £40-million-a-year, deal with
the International Olympic Committee more than three years early,
citing a “focus on different priorities”,severing a relationship that dated to 1976.
A new page is being opened as regards the Olympic Games 2020.
