You, Charley? Never!

Some headlines from Japan Times.
1. Tepco injects nitrogen into No. 3 reactor at Fukushima, to reduce the risk of further hydrogen explosions.
2. Government-commissioned experts noted in the early 1990s the possibility of fatal damage to nuclear power plants resulting from loss of all alternating-current sources for long periods, as in the case of the Fukushima No. 1 plant, but played down the risk.
3. Tohoku land use guidelines- Fish-processing firms can build plants along the coast, but hospitals and welfare facilities must be inland.
4. Sanitary conditions are deteriorating in shelters as the temperature rises.
5. Phasing out nuke power an aspiration, not policy. Edano.
6. Power shortages top concern for investors.
