The Minister of Nuclear Crisis Management and Environment has a daunting task of addressing all the issues involved with the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster. Mr. Goshi Hosono is the designated Minister of these 2 Ministries. I have been researching Mr. Goshi Hosono and started to notice that the man that is supposed to manage this nuclear disaster and the effects that is has had on the Fukushima Prefecture does not seem to want to go out and assess the area himself.
How does one manage something if that person does not actually go and see for himself? How does he actually know just how good or bad an issue is, if he has not investigated and seen for himself?
I am sure that Mr. Goshi Hosono could argue that he has a whole staff reporting to him about the various issues that he is overseeing, but if you have nothing as a base for assessing what your staff is reporting to you, how do you know that you are making the right decision?
One thing that Mr. Goshi Hosono did address with a speed that would dazzle most law makers is getting the money to hire the company that would censor remarks and comments about the Fukushima disaster. He does have his own agenda and that was the top of the list.
I guess you could say that Mr. Goshi Hosono is trying to see if you can actually manage a disaster without actually having to see it for yourself or to see the progress or deterioration of the disaster. He is without a doubt one of those leaders that believes in managing from a distance, because it really doesn’t affect his personal comfort. And, he is in control of the “delete any bad comment” button.
Personally, I think that he doesn’t like to mess his hair up by having to put on one of those radiation suits.
