Panel doubts TEPCO claim tsunami caused nuke accident


  • Panel doubts TEPCO claim tsunami caused nuke accident

    It is close to a common understanding that it would not be good to trust as is TEPCO's analysis that tsunami was the cause of the accident."

    The conclusion reached by the panel could have ground-shaking ramifications for other nuclear power plants in Japan.

    If the March 11 earthquake is viewed as the main culprit behind the Fukushima nuclear accident, that would mean that other nuclear plants are also vulnerable to large earthquakes.

    Such a possibility is not small since about 10 percent of the world's earthquakes occur in Japan.

    webmasters comment:

    It is well documented that the emissions from Fukushima started before the tsunami hit.
