Quakes and fakes – The Panda’s Thumb

leave a comment »

A geologist talks about the Japan earthquake.

Quakes and fakes – The Panda’s Thumb.

I would expect a quick evaluation of the future operation of any power plant after a 0.3g earthquake.  These are not normal operating conditions for any power system, building, or other commercial structure.

Of course, I am not an expert on Japanese power plant design standards.
