Tsunamis are generated by earthquakes thus it would be reasonable to assume the cause of the disaster was largely due to an earthquake.The direct damage to the generators due to water damage inhibited the cooling system with resulting meltdowns and explosions.
In the case of earthquake generated earth movement who is able to predict the exact cause of a meltdown in the future?
A failing system or human error could easily have the same consequences
As there is absolutely no way that the duration,location nor intensity of an earthquake can be predicted then it is surely nonsensical to have nuclear reactors in Japan.

How can a nuclear reactor meet 'safety requirements' in a country prone to massive earthquakes?
The (according to NHK) the damaged reactors have spewed out over a quadrillion becquerels of radiation!
There is still no way to stop this flow,to date Japan has had the worst nuclear disaster in history.
And it is still ongoing......

I would disagree.
There aren't any laws in Japan that deal with race issues.
The football clubs are possibly responding to FIFA fines but not to any fines based on Japan's legal statutes.
And this is why foreigners have been excluded and prevented from entering certain businesses based on race
There is much more legal redress to be found in Europe concerning racial issues.

It's no surprise that there is a middleman (Orix) in the mix-Japan is notorious for this.
However,solar power generation is not only the province of big players.
I personally know 3 people to have signed contracts with Kansai Electric to sell power on 25 year contracts.
9-10% a year return is the norm for a solar farm in Japan.....

Why is that?
Oh right,Bigfoot has never been shown to be an actual recordable phenomena whereas the release of over a quadrillion bequerels at Fukushima has (according to NHK news)
The correlation between the incidents of cancer and radiation has been proven many times.
Cancer, in many cases results in death
