A string of human errors has dogged the Fukushima Daiichi tragedy, from placing back-up generators in a low-lying area, to forgetting to refill fuel on vital pumps. Catastrophe is occurring, as is a cruel testimonial to the reality of 'nuclear safety', empty assurances of 'technological infallibility' having spawned a waking nightmare.
