Japan Shuts Down Tomari Nuclear Plant
http://rarejobdailynewsarticle.blogspot.jp/2012/05/japan-shuts-down-tomari-nuclear-plant.html

Discussion A
1) Do you think people should continue to use nuclear energy? Why or why not?
If alternate ways to generate the necessary amount of electricity are secured, it’d be better to stop using nuclear energy. Nuclear energy can be costly in the long run.

2) If it were possible for your country to replace nuclear energy with any other kind of energy source, what would you choose? Why choose it?
One of the viable ways to generate electricity in our country should be hydropower generation. Solar power generation seems prospective, but it heavily depends on climate which would never be under our control.

Discussion B
3) Have you ever experienced a blackout? What would you do if you a blackout were to happen?
The people living in prefectures in the vicinity of Tokyo, me included, experienced planned power outages for several weeks in the aftermath of the mega earthquake in March 2011. If it’s a planned power outage and the schedule is followed just as planned, we can prepare for the blackout in any ways. In fact we survived the everyday planned power outages of 4 hours for a few weeks. If it’s accidental, there won’t be many things that we can do.

4) What do you think would be the effects of a very long blackout in the area where you live?
It would be severely damaged. First of all, public transportation services, such as trains and subway, would be suspended, and thus many people won’t be able to go to work. Also stores won’t be able to open without electricity, making our daily lives very inconvenient. Personally, my daily life would be significantly damaged if the Internet connection is unavailable due to a very long blackout. Because I’m literally an Internet addict.
