It was a one in a million chance that they predicted an island hit by earthquakes and tsunami in the past would be hit by an earthquake and tsunami again?
But a review of company and regulatory records shows that Japan and its largest utility repeatedly downplayed dangers and ignored warnings -- including a 2007 tsunami study from Tokyo Electric Power Co's senior safety engineer.
"We still have the possibilities that the tsunami height exceeds the determined design height due to the uncertainties regarding the tsunami phenomenon," Tokyo Electric researchers said in a report reviewed by Reuters.
The research paper concluded that there was a roughly 10 percent chance that a tsunami could test or overrun the defenses of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant within a 50-year span based on the most conservative assumptions.
In an interview in 2007 after Tokyo Electric’s Kashiwazaki nuclear plant was struck by an earthquake, Ishibashi said fundamental improvements were needed in engineering standards for atomic power stations, without which Japan could suffer a catastrophic disaster.
What the RV sees supports many 911 research from around the world. Including mine.
By the way do you know anybody that works for NIST? Because I do. The thing is, it would be impossible to falsify the commissioned report without it eventually being completely debunked. That hasn't happened yet because in science you have to take something that's published and reproduce it in the lab to see if it works before it can be accepted in academia.
Nobody that knows their head from a hole in the ground buys the NIST whitewash report.
The planes brought the twin towers down, not any secondary explosives. The whole 'pull it' line theory that was promulgated by Alex Jones has also since been debunked.

The fact is the WTC were "over designed" to handle fully loaded, full of fuel 707's for multiply impacts,
The fact is the outer shell of the WTC was designed like a "fish net", meaning you can punch all the holes you want in the WTC but it would have never fell.
Another fact is, all the circumstantial evidence points to demolition
The official narratives of 911, the WTC, are lies.
Are you aware that the aircrafts that crashed into the towers were 767s and not 707s?
The fact is the WTC were "over designed" to handle fully loaded, full of fuel 707's for multiply impacts, the worst scenario that was expected was the WTC would completely burn from the top down, however the WTC would never have collapsed

Are you aware that a 707 has a significantly higher speed capability. So it would do much more damage due to the kinetic energy? Kinetic Energy = 1/2 of mass times velocity squared!
The buildings survived the impact of the Boeing 767 aircraft, an impact very much greater than had been contemplated in our design (a slow-flying Boeing 707 lost in the fog and seeking a landing field). Therefore, the robustness of the towers was exemplary. At the same time, the fires raging in the inner reaches of the buildings undermined their strength. In time, the unimaginable happened .
The two towers were the first structures outside of the military and nuclear industries designed to resist the impact of a jet airliner, the Boeing 707. It was assumed that the jetliner would be lost in the fog, seeking to land at JFK or at Newark. To the best of our knowledge, little was known about the effects of a fire from such an aircraft, and no designs were prepared for that circumstance. Indeed, at that time, no fireproofing systems were available to control the effects of such fires.
What planet have you been on? Nobody that knows their head from a hole in the ground buys the NIST whitewash report. What a disgrace.
