I rarely agree with anything written by Greenies. However, the nuclear industry has a lot of questions to answer after Fukushima. If it had happened in Italy, or several other places where we might say "What did you expect?", it might not have been so worrisome. But the Japanese are generally known as people who DO sweat the details. When they can't get it right, you wonder if we have.
Rather than p*ss*ng and moaning about restrictions, the industry needs to do some serious work on basic redesigns to make these things more idiot proof.
