    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.
