7. There's confessions (anonymous) from workers at Fukushima....
that piping that delivered cooling water was so mis-aligned that joints had to be lined up and held in place using heavy equipment. These joints were then welded under tremendous stress.
When the earthquake hit, these joints snapped and parted immediately therefore dooming any possibility of delivering water to cool the melting-down mess.
It wasn't the tsunami that delivered the fatal blow, it was the shoddy (and covered-up) poor construction.
Fukushima was fucked from the get-go.
And how many more of these plants are JUST LIKE IT?
