In response to my last post, someone passed on some information about the history of the power plant. This webpage is in Japanese, but appears to call for an overhaul of the plant in 2007.
This type of 20/20 hindsight might be a given in such situations, but it is valid. It’s not a matter of placing blame or someone’s right to say I-told-you-so. Rather, it can help to decide about the future, personally and nationally. It further raises questions about Japan’s ability to handle having such complex systems as Nuclear Reactors.
