Japan nuclear crisis was 'avoidable'

Ex-Fukushima governor says crisis could have been averted had power company taken steps.

    The former governor of Fukushima - a long-time critic of the nuclear industry – insists that the power company had an opportunity to implement measures that would have averted the crisis.

    As frantic measures are under way to cool down the quake-stricken reactors, sentiment on Japan’s streets are heating up. In a country where nuclear power was once synonymous with development and success, vocal opposition to atomic power is gaining momentum.
