Power problem.

Assalamualaikum.

During my 光エレクトロニックス(Optoelectronics. Wow it sounds way cooler in English) class, my teacher talked about the electric power situation since last year’s twin natural disaster that destroyed TEPCO’s power plant in Fukushima.

It is said that to help covering up the losses of power, the whole country is required to decrease the usage of electrical power in order to recover the 30% loss of the country’s generating capacity(Source : Wikipedia).

Nevermind that. It’s only normal to help each other like that, yes?

People in Shikoku Island are required to cut off 7% of the usage of electrical power.

Sounds reasonable.

But here’s the thing.

Shikoku;

Which is made up of four prefectures;

Of total land area ±18,800 km²;

Of  total population close to 4 million;

Of population density per one square meter of land is about 210 persons/km²;

Of annual power usage is equivalent to Tokyo’s one or two wards;

Has to cut off 7% off the annual usage of electrical power.

Basically, Shikoku’s a kampung and we have to shave off 7% off our power usage.

Now.

Compare all that info to Tokyo.

Which is made up of twenty three wards;

Of total land area merely ±620 km²;

But of total population scraping 9 million;

And of population density per one square meter of land is roughly 14,000 persons/km²;

Of annual power usage is probably ten times that of Shikoku’s;

Has to cut off only 15% off the annual usage of electrical power.

Hey.

As much as I want to pity the sardined civilians of  Tokyo Metropolis.

WHERE THE HELL CAN WE CUT OFF EXCESS ELECTRICAL POWER YOU SELFISH FU-
