My usual comment that is so applicable to the nuclear industry - 'Delusion & denial, lead to danger, disaster & destruction'.

The problem really lies with those power seeking humans that have a need for the absolutely massive quantities of energy that only splitting the 'mighty atom' can provide. Not only do those at the top of the nuclear industry deny the dangers of nuclear power, but so do those at the head of government and many multinationals that are motivated by having massive amounts of centrally controlled power to satisfy their own egotistical needs. Tepco executrives should be prosecuted for their blatent failure of duty of care to their employees and the wider public. But the original project main contractor and the regulator both failed in their duty of care to properly assess the risks to staff and the public from all low frequency events that can overwhelm all the plants systems of defence in depth.
