New report describes official chaos as Japan faced the Fukushima disaster

As Japanese officials consider whether and when to reactivate most of the country's 54 nuclear plants, a year after the Fukushima reactor disaster, they continue to face challenges to public confidence in the nuclear industry and its regulator. The latest comes from a new independent study of the accident to be released tomorrow by the Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation, a nonprofit think tank. It describes the government's failure to provide accurate and adequate warning of the mounting dangers as the Tokyo Electric Power Co. crews lost control of three Fukushima Daiichi reactors following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that hit northeast Japan.
