Japan shut down all reactors in the wake of the Fukushima crisis, the worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
The government has poured billions of dollars into TEPCO to keep the company, which supplies electricity to Tokyo and the surrounding area, afloat.
It faces massive ongoing costs as it stumps up cash for decommissioning the reactors, cleaning up contaminated areas and paying compensation to those who fled their homes due to radiation fears.
Nuclear would be completely dead in Japan if not for MASSIVE direct injections of taxpayer money into the zombie radioactive nuclear beast that is dying. The entire mega nuclear disaster has been almost completely covered up.
