Compensation? I Hardly Think This Adequate

NHK: TEPCO announces standards for compensation
http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/30_37.html

[excerpted] The Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has announced new standards for compensating those affected by the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

....The standards cover damage inflicted from March 11th to August 31st.

The compensation includes that for travel expenses up to about 65 dollars per trip per person for government-ordered evacuations within Fukushima Prefecture. Lodging fees up to about 104 dollars a night for such evacuations are also covered.

The utility says it could compensate beyond the standards in some cases.

The company is also to provide to evacuees compensation of about 1,300 dollars a month for mental suffering, as well as that for medical fees for injuries and illnesses caused by evacuations. Income lost due to evacuations is also to be covered.


MAJIA HERE: THERE IS NO MONETARY AMOUNT THAT COULD COVER THE LOSS OF YOUR COMMUNITY, HOME, JOB AND, PERHAPS, HEALTH AND LIFE ITSELF

An "energy" source capable of poisoning entire communities for hundreds, if not thousands, of years is not a source of "power," but rather is a source of decay, entrophy, weakness, and death
