It's not acceptable to have nuclear plants keep exploding. I don't need to be a nuclear physicist to know that that isn't supposed to happen, even once! Then they have botched the rolling black-outs, and all of their communication. Never mind that they have a decades long history of lying through their teeth. Now we have to find out from contaminated US sailors that there have been radioactive elements released into the atmosphere. How is it these idiots are still in charge when their incompetence caused this? I don't know about (my native) Canada, but the bloody Americans wouldn't put up with this crap. The President would have their top military nuclear engineers in there, can the top management, and work with the middle managers who might even understand the technology.
Then again... That isn't what happened with Wall Street...Somebody needs to grow a pair and make a decision. Maybe it's time to do a Chernobyl and bury the lot of them in boron laced concrete. "Them" meaning the reactors, not the management of Tepco, but 'two birds with one stone'... Maybe something else. I'm no nuclear physicist but the time for half-measures is well past.
* Letting more than one nuclear plant explode, building it in a seismic zone, building it in a tsunami zone with seawalls too low, and vulnerable pumps...
** Lying to the public at every stage to allay panic or halt the plunge of their share price, causing the public not to trust them even if (they ever) tell the truth.
