- TEPCO did not act on tsunami risk projected for nuclear plant
TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s department responsible for managing nuclear power plant facilities did not act on a risk of massive tsunami near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant projected in an in-house study in 2008, ruling out an immediate need to better protect the power station from seawater flooding, company sources said Sunday.
Despite the projection of a tsunami as high as 10.2 meters, officials of the department at the company's headquarters insisted that such a risk was unrealistic, they said. In March, the power station was ravaged by a tsunami as high as about 15 meters.
Ridiculing opposition is a common strategy of nuclear industry pudles. If you were to point out the risks of earthquakes, solar storms, floods, terrorist attacks etc, you will be asked if you got your doomsday bunker ready...
And the problem is that the sheep follow such fools beacuse it is common today that brute force and idiotism are in bigger demand than caution and reason.
