    even a full meltdown wasn't a danger to the public, reinstating dozens of reactors on earthquake fault lines are not a danger to the public, nor is any of the water contamination a danger to the public. There is simply no danger to the public in any way that makes the phrase danger to the public have any meaning

    The Hamaoka plant will be the one with the highest risk when the expected Tokai earthquake occurs.

    So how could this fire start if the place is shut down?

    "No radiation danger to the public" you if believe that, there is a nice bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale. After almost 25 years in country I have ceased to believe and since the fukushima man-made disaster I really really don't believe.

    Even my home fan has a safety thermal switch, in case it over heats and if it's an industrial fan, it should also have the same protection built into the motor windings. Does anyone know what company made this fan? The only way a fan catches fire theses days is if it was poorly built or if it was neglected for ages, allowing it to get clogged up with flamible material.

    Yup. You can add the reactors themselves to that as welll.

    I have absolutely no doubt hey are more upset about the possibility this will reflect badly on them than they are the actual fire, and cursing people that it was not kept quiet.

    "no danger to public" should read "no danger to public this time" (cross your fingers)

    Understandable perhaps, given the hysterical reaction to things like this.

    I wonder how some people who don't trust anything Japanese companies or autorities say can continue to live in Japan. No doubts about the fact many things were kept hidden in Fukushima's case, but if you think you get only lies about every little thing, you should consider to leave for living in a "trustable country". Let me know which it is...it could be interesting.

    Strange question, because people settled there long time ago and there is no reason why they should leave everything, instead the parties at fault, the authorities and companies, should change in an ideal world.

    No doubts about the fact many things were kept hidden in Fukushima's case

    I call this an euphemism.

    Problems and crisis are always profitable. Things running smoothly are not near as profitable. Fukushima will continue to be profitable to sub contractors as long as the problem is never solved. It will also be profitable to doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. It will remain profitable for rental properties is supposed safe areas and to real estate companies. And so it goes right up to government workers and politicians that will benefit from it all. It will be profitable for the Yakusa as well.

    Location, location, location - "exhaust fan of the turbine building"

    Note, not the "reactor building".
