    Thank you for posting this article! Sounds like by “explaining,” Chugoku Electric Power Co. is trying to “convince” the residents how safe and different Kaminoseki power plant would be from Fukushima, and is waiting for the “buzz” to go away?

    Yuki: That’s the impression I got, too. I’m sure the general public are leaning toward a more skeptical stance on nuclear energy, though. Not that I’m glad this had to happen, but we should all learn something from it.
