No. 2: Private companies naturally try to save their assets. (July 12, 2011)

Meats contaminated by radiocesium were shipped to retailers and restaurants in Japan. They are from cows shipped by a farmer in Fukushima Prefecture. The farmer gave straws to his cows in violation of the government order not to give straws because they are contaminated. That is, rich people and gourmets had very delicious meats with lots of radiocesium in exchange for lots of money. Private companies, whether they are big or small, naturally try to save their assets. This simple action is epitomized by Tokyo Electric Power. Despite the fact that leading scientists around the world claimed that meltdown had already occurred inside the nuclear reactor, the company gave the first priority to the recovery of electricity. All Japanese agree to allocate lots of money for the reconstruction of the afflicted areas because tunami is a natural disaster. However, the huge and serious damage caused by the meltdown is not a natural disaster but a human disaster.
