TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan March 2013

On Wednesday, officials from the Atomic Energy Society of Japan discussed the report at their annual meeting held at Kinki University in Osaka Prefecture.  The report released by the Atomic Energy Society accepted that the direct cause of the disaster was a loss of reactor cooling functions due to damage sustained by the tsunami and earthquake, but blamed overconfidence in nuclear plant safety, a lack of preparations, and a displayed lack of humility as the primary causes of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
