TEPCO Boss Backpedals on Radiation Danger

by

 

[Via the Daily Mail] The boss of the company behind the devastated Japanese nuclear reactor today broke down in tears – as his country finally acknowledged the radiation spewing from the over-heating reactors and fuel rods was enough to kill some citizens

Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency admitted that the disaster was a level 5, which is classified as a crisis causing ‘several radiation deaths’ by the UN International Atomic Energy.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said: ‘The unprecedented scale of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, frankly speaking, were among many things that happened that had not been anticipated under our disaster management contingency plans.

‘In hindsight, we could have moved a little quicker in assessing the situation and coordinating all that information and provided it faster.’

Nuclear experts have been saying for days that Japan was underplaying the crisis’ severity.

  1. IAEA needs to hurry up and check the situation first hand. I pray they don’t say it will be like Chernobyl. I am here in Yokohama and things seem relatively normal though. Even if it does get upgraded to a level 7, I don’t think we will have any real issues here.

  2. Why not send TEPCO Boss Yukio Edano to Fukushima 1-5 with a watering can instead of the Fire Fighters?? Its his Pile of sh*t – he should put the fire out – that what “taking responsibility” means…..
