    And the most shocking development? No one was prosecuted or lost their jobs at the governmental level, despite clear evidence of negligence and incompetence.

    You can still see the dam, it resisted the pressure of the massive wave, without breaking.It's well built, only in the very, very wrong place.

    @plo oh look another fool who has no idea what he's talking about besides talking points he hears from scared people.Wrong. Nuclear waste takes up almost no space, and we already have many ways of utilizing it rather than disposing of it, and converting it. And on the horizon are dozens of new ways to utilize it. So...nope. Try agian you fearful pathetic pussy afraid of technology.

    @Adam Bandel 'safe' nucleur plants all have toxic waste that takes millennia to be really safe. Concrete does not last long.

    @ 4:01 immediately after the final words of the narrator: " ... nearly 2000 people died."A happy jingle plays and the message: "Smithsonian Channel, Its Brighter Here"Yeah, you might want to edit that. 😉

    A similar disaster happend in Wales,I think the year was 1964/5 where a man made hill of spoil from the local coal mines was heaped above the village of Aberfan it destroyed the school most of the children died no one was held responsible there wasn't even an enquiry of merit.

  • Richard Bool  14 days ago

    Aberfan happened on October 21st 1966 there was no enquiry there should of been but Obviously the Givernment is the same now couldn't care less unless it stops their profits

    @Taffy Ducks I don't understand why you think, I require or desire natural disasters to have a high number of child fatalities?
