‘TEPCO': the definition of evil and stupid


It seems that at the public utility company, the only thing the TepcoTurds© “plan” are their coverups. Likewise, the Japanese government can’t even keep their coverup secret, sheesh.

Japan kept silent on worst nuclear crisis scenario
Associated Press | Jan. 25, 2012
The Japanese government's worst-case scenario at the height of the nuclear crisis last year warned that tens of millions of people, including Tokyo residents, might need to leave their homes, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press. But fearing widespread panic, officials kept the report secret.
The recent emergence of the 15-page internal document may add to complaints in Japan that the government withheld too much information about the world’s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. It also casts doubt about whether the government was sufficiently prepared to cope with what could have been an evacuation of unprecedented scale.
The report was submitted to then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan and his top advisers on March 25, two weeks after the earthquake and tsunami devastated the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, causing three reactors to melt down and generating hydrogen explosions that blew away protective structures.
Workers ultimately were able to bring the reactors under control, but at the time, it was unclear whether emergency measures would succeed. Kan commissioned the report, compiled by the Japan Atomic Energy Commission, to examine what options the government had if those efforts failed.

  1. What if the worst-case scenario turns out to actually be not evacuating Tokyo?


  2. You think they will have that frozen entombment (BBC) done in time to save you from the radiation contamination? Does this have anything to do with hell freezing over. I think this is part of the greater Godzilla plan of the rising sun to take over the earth.
