    Gary:

    My reply was a bit abrupt.   Good engineering, especially of systems whose failure could affect human life, requires consideration of all probable disasters. 

    The Fukushima reactors are over 40 years old.  Did we know as much about plate tectonics and tsunami generation back then as we know now?   With whatever knowledge we had back then, could we have predicted even a one-in-a-million chance of a tsunami of the magnitude experienced in Japan?

    That, to me at least, is a critical factor in deciding whether these reactors were adequately engineered.

    Probably the same people who would have thought of fully fueled 747s hitting the World Trade Center towers...

    Yah, and who would have thought there would be a tsunami in Japan?
