Oh, no: Tepco pants on fire, August 11, 2013

In a recent post Tepco spokesperson Masayuki Ono stated

A spokesperson for Tokyo Electric Power Company says the company has known for the past 2 years that a massive amount of groundwater was flowing beneath the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.  Masayuki Ono said on Friday that TEPCO experts estimated hundreds of tons of the water could reach the ocean daily.
Ono said the estimate was based on rough records of groundwater that TEPCO workers had collected.  Until last month, TEPCO officials had denied the possibility that contaminated groundwater was leaking into the ocean.   Ono said he is unable to explain why it took two years to disclose this fact.

The nuclear industry has been based on secrets and lies since the beginning.   They have been found out; at times the truth will prevail.  Will the responsible people be held liable, or will the corporations continue with their criminal behavior?
