Fukushima Disaster was Preventable - New Study

Fukushima, the worst nuclear disaster in Japan’s history was preventable, a new USC study claims. Design problems, negligence and inadequate pre-tsunami surveys all contributed to the failure that led to the nuclear catastrophe, the study claims.

The Fukushima site still has no containment structure. The key issue is that there was a meltdown of 3 nuclear reactors, and the core material is still releasing harmful fission products into the environment.

What should have happened was the building of a vast concrete structure around, over and under, the entire site.
