    What should they be doing?

    But seriously, this report has repeated the already well-established fact that the meltdowns were caused by the earthquake damage to the decrepit cooling systems, not the Tsunami, yet the plutonium cartel has a full-scale propaganda war on the public, and you will catch them trying to move the line back to blaming the tsunami. The emissions have already exceeded Chernobyl, but the phrase that pays the shills is 'worst since Chernobyl'. And the flow into the ocean and probably groundwater has not stopped. In fact, the worst may not have happened yet.  They are doing something: quadrupling their already substantial propaganda efforts, getting their little kept bloggers out dissembling with extra urgency and carefully crafted deceptions. watch for them in 5... 4...

      who is continually talking about the "once-in-a-thousand-years" tsunami as the cause, although anecdotal evidence from several plant workers had already established that things were ready to melt just from the quake.

      At least it's good to have an "official" rebuttal for that lying claim. And of course, most every plant on earth is build for the "once-in-a-hundred (or 2 or 3) years" event. I had people telling me "France doesn't have earthquakes, France doesn't have tsunamis." But just 300 years ago they did, major ones.

      There's been systematic planning by the nuke industry for the "worst historical case but two, three, or four" for almost every plant. As if there was a law of nature which had been discovered that said the worst we haven't seen for a while can't ever happen again.

      The Internet is just the tail of the Corporate Media dog.
