+ - Fukushima nuclear disaster 'man-made'->

Submitted by

AmiMoJo writes "A Japanese parliamentary report into the Fukushima disaster states that it "could and should have been foreseen and prevented" and its effects "mitigated by a more effective human response". The panel concluded that the disaster "was the result of collusion between the government, the regulators and Tepco" founded in the failure of regulatory systems. Blame was also placed on a lack of investment in safety upgrades and a culture of not questioning authority.

Meanwhile the Ohi nuclear plant started generating electricity again. Opposition to the re-start had pointed out that the systemic failures that afflicted Fukushima had not been addressed, and are hoping that after the summer peak demand period is over the plant will be shut down or idled again."
