Well...

They have the largest cities, they have a really high energy consumption and the whole country is around a dangerous area. They need to build nuclear plants or invest in future technology. Japan decided to rely on the older technology instead anything else (beside the fact that Japan has no really choice. They need power, they have no ressources to burn in their own country).

OH Yeah! Yummy! Because of black market value Abalone poaching is prevelant along the Mendocino coast line, so much so that all of the local game warden's are more fish cop than warden. Abalone season is Apr 1 to end of June, Aug 1st to Dec. Big low tides in the spring bring checkpoints. What concerns me as a hunter, Calif requires a molar from your bear, and the current law says I have to give the warden the head so they can remove the tooth. Since none of these guy hardly know which end a tooth come from, the head get shipped to Eureka, and then back when they're done with it.
