"I asked my boss back in the late '90s what would happen if a tsunami hit the Fukushima reactors," he said.

"I said surely a meltdown will happen. He said 'Kimura, you are right'.



Well they knew,they covered up and now the people with strength of heart and moral courage speak out
This is all well and good but the damage is done

99,99% of every company from every sort of business of varied importance and danger to society are not ready to be hit by a tsunami. That "whistleblower", if we can even call him that, didnt warn the company. He was just throwing wild ideas around twenty years ago! Should every single company in the world invest on being prepared for a tsunami? I get it, we are talking about a nuclear plant. But if a meteorite hits it, bad stuff will happen as well. The earth is constantly hit by meteorites. A lot more than it is hit by tsunamis. Should every nuclear facility also be ready for a meteorite hit?

I dont consider that a whistleblowing. If that insider was talking about failures in normal procedures, than that would be alarming. But his boss ignoring the possibility of a tsunami twenty years ago.... Come on.... i deslike tepco as much as the next guy right now, but I still dont think that is a fair accusation.
