Earthquake and tsunami are unavoidable natural events, but the ongoing disaster at the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant was induced by "human errors" stemming from cozy ties between bureaucrats and TEPCO, former Fukushima Gov. Eisaku Sato said.

One more reason why we must use natural non toxic means of power. I'm so sorry this is happening, so many will be affected by what can only be collusion for profit. An attitude of using the cheapest materials to increase profits and hope you don't get caught.

Same problem we have here in the US. GOT CHANGE? BOYCOTT.
"The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. -Woodrow Wilson, 1913.

We must turn from our dependence on fossil fuels and nuclear power. The only reason for our political leaders considering them is because of corporate money and power. Otherwise, we would turn to wind and solar.

A corporation has co-opted the government-who would have guessed? Anyone watching, especially the exquisitely careful spin very early on in the situation, surely suspected this was the problem...and the Japanese people were left twisting in the wind.

Every instance of nuclear disaster has been the result of human stupidity, greed and negligence.

Dirty energy in bed with politicians? Sadly, because of greed, it's the way of the world.
