Finally a Japanese parliamentary inquiry has concluded that last year’s nuclear meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was “a profoundly man-made disaster — that could and should have been foreseen and prevented.” But this isn’t really news for me. It’s just a delayed official confirmation of a bad and inhuman handling by the Japanese government. I still believe that the Japanese government had the knowledge and capacity at the time, when the disaster happened, to do something about it. At least they could have closed the nuclear plant instead of keeping it alive. More about this topic in this video by Democracy Now!.
