The Japanese Economy Is In Much Bigger Trouble Than Most People Think

Unfortunately, the worst for the auto industry is yet to come. AutoNation is warning that "production disruptions will significantly impact product availability from Japanese auto manufacturers in the second and third quarters of 2011."

Because of supply chain disruptions, a number of North American manufacturing facilities look like they will be shutting down at least for a while.

For example, Toyota has announced that it will be shutting down all of its North American factories for a certain period of time because of shortages of parts from Japan.

But Toyota is far from alone as a recent report in The Globe and Mail made quite clear....

Honda Motor Co. Ltd. has already slashed output by half at its North American plants, while Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. will shut all its U.S. and Mexican plants for at least one week in April. Ford Motor Co., too, has halted production at a truck plant in Kentucky this week.
So why don't North American facilities just switch to other suppliers?

Unfortunately, as CNN recently noted, it is just not that simple....

Japanese companies also specialized in making the array of highly specialized computer chips that control everything from the engine to the brakes in modern cars.

Japan makes the computer chips for all vehicles not just Toyota Honda and Nissan. And this is just one aspect of Japan's crises.

Official reports say it will take 8 -9 months to contain and control the fall out at the fukushima plant.

That is of course if an array of catastrophes don't strike the plant, such as one of the many 5+ aftershocks that continue to occur along the Japanese coast.

TOKYO — Toyota Motor Corp. resumed car production at all of its plants in Japan Monday for the first time since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, but said the factories will run at half capacity due to parts shortages."

Naoto Kan Creates No-Entry Zone Around Nuke Plant

Prime Minister Naoto Kan announced his government will enforce a no-entry zone within a 12.4-mile radius of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, prohibiting evacuees from returning to their homes without government permission.

Radioactive water 20,000 times the allowable limit leaked into the Pacific Ocean from Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power said Thursday.

The plant operator estimated the early April leakage lasted for six days through April 6 and amounted to 520 tons, Japan's Kyodo News Agency reported.

Japan's worst nuclear crisis was triggered by a massive 9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

The restriction has been in force since the early days of the disaster but has often been ignored, CNN reported.

Many of the 78,000 residents who have homes in the evacuation zone have gone back in recent weeks to retrieve their belongings and check on businesses.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told reporters entry into the area will now be highly regulated.

People who temporarily return will have to wear protective suits and ride into the restricted zone on a designated bus.

Something is officially wrong with Japan's official radiation numbers

Japan Summer weather is nigh, and here's the change we can expect in wind direction

Quote:Next month, Japan will experience reversed wind directions on a very consistent basis and increased rains in Tokyo. As long as radioactive exposures continue to trend lower as they have been lately, areas located downwind should stay in check. Unforeseen complications resulting in increased venting will change the outlook immediately. It will be interesting to see what China's radiation numbers will look like next month, and what their government will say about this new development if problems arise.

Evacuation zone widened beyond 20 km from Fukushima nuclear plant

The government on Friday added some towns outside a 20-kilometer radius of the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to the list of areas covered by its evacuation directive due to concerns over high cumulative levels of radiation exposure.
