Nice to see that our earlier judgement calls on Tepco ineptitude are continuing to be verified.
TEPCO failed to respond to dire warning of radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

Tokyo Electric Power Co. dawdled on measures to prevent leaks of highly radioactive water during the Fukushima nuclear crisis, despite the plant manager’s warning that “we are idly waiting for death.”
"It's like my heart could stop at any moment when I think about the water levels," he said. "I request quick installation of a mechanism to monitor water level variations both remotely and accurately."
But Ichiro Takekuro, a senior official at the head office, only gave a halfhearted response.
"I think we will probably be able to discuss things tomorrow, including setting really concrete goals," he said.
The radioactive water from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant eventually flowed into the sea.
