Somehow Tepco just got around to discovering an 8 inch crack in a concrete pit at a Fukushima reactor 2 that is leaking radioactive water into the ocean. This came days after radiation levels in the ocean were found to be high and after Tepco initially said it was impossible for water to be leaking into the ocean.
Has there ever been a company with such clear and reckless disregard for the health of their own employees and welfare of their country? They make Massey Coal look like good citizens.
Insufficient monitoring has become a pressing safety issue at the plant. Nuclear regulators warned Tepco on Friday that every worker must wear a radiation-monitoring dosimeter to keep track of exposure.
That’s right. Weeks after the disaster happened, Tepco isn’t even taking the most basic and obvious of precautions.
