A Lesson to be Learned from Fukushima

The flaws that were disastrously exposed at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant were enabled by that county’s compliant culture, says an internationally recognized physicist.

And he believes that holds a lesson for Americans.

The cultural compliancy of the Japanese people may have contributed to the attitudes that enabled the Fuukushima disaster to happen, but Dr. Ohska  says they are now being further tested by the official statements that have come after the nuclear accident.

Dr. Ohska observes that the widespread view that  the tsunami was responsible for the meltdown, rather than the earthquake that triggered the tidal wave, is also being called into question.
