HELP JAPAN Shut down Hamaoka and Tokai nuclear power plants

We are asking that all of you contact President Obama and implore him to pressure the Japanese government to shut down Hamaoka and Tokai nuclear power plants. These plants are the two closest to Tokyo. We continue to have aftershocks that register from 4.0 to 7.0. We also are experiencing other quakes from epicenters close to and inside Tokyo. If these plants become affected it could be devastating for Japan as Tokyo has the largest concentration of our population. We would also request that the rest of the nuclear power plant facilities (all 55) be fully checked out for safety.

Contact them as soon as you can to help us.

Thank you ,
Concerned parents in Japan,
Yumi Kikuchi and Gen Morita
Kamogawa, Japan

      Great progress! The PM of Japan has come out and said he wants Hamaoka Nuclear power plants shut down! Still there is more to do, as the PM cannot order the plant closed.

      My family and many relatives live within 30km radius of Hamaoka. Ever since I remember, we went through disaster drills at school and in our community with Tokai Earthquake in mind. The record shows earthquake in the region happens in 150-year cycle. The last large earthquake occured in 1854.

      It is all about politics.

      Japan has enough energy without nuclear plants.

      No more Fukushima!!!!! I don't want the energy that people have to die for.

      Not only shutting down and checking Japan's power plants, I would like you to consider this as a turning point to shift from fossil-fuel/nuclear power to solar/wind/biomass/small-hydro/geothermal etc. energies in US and the world. We are ready. Yes we can!

      Being a Power Hour listener almost for a year,and having listened to Yumi's interview with James Corbett on 911, I've been looking for ways that I could do to change the way I live and make a small difference around me.

      As a Japanese citizen who can't move out of Japan leaving my parents and all the people helping those affected by the disaster, surrounded by so much conflicting information, one thing I'm sure about is that we don't need any nuclear power plants, especially in such a country experiencing too many quakes to have them. Enough is enough!
