Masataka Shimizu Should Resign Immediately

Update [5/20/2011]: Shimizu Resigned Today. Good.  Hopefully the new president will seal the site.

Center Calling For Resignation of Tokyo Electric Power Company President

The handling of the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster has been so bad that Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) Presdient Masataka Shimizu (pictured) should resign immediately.  He recently visited an evacuation facility to apologize and bow to residents.  He should have given them his resignation.

The Center is calling for sealing the Fukushima site and has been calling for a sarcophagus to be placed over reactors 1, 2, 3 & 4.  Tepco management should have begun sealing the facility just as soon as they lost control of cooling the reactors.  Instead, they are unnecessarily sending workers into the facility in some futile attempt to salvage the facility.

The Center is also calling for Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan to resign.
