TEPCO’s Troubles

Nobody in the world has a bigger job to do than those at Tokyo Electric Power Company.  The disaster that has unfolded over the past two weeks has put millions of people in danger and has yet to come under control.  Scientists have predicted that the situation is growing more and more out of control as the days go by.

TEPCO’s reputation and future is on the line.  If the radiation from the downed plant spreads much more, there are likely going to be officials who protest against the use of nuclear power in the future.  From Chernobyl now to Fukushima, disasters with these plants are eminent and those living in the remote proximity of them are at risk.

Following this disaster, like any tragedy, the PR workers with TEPCO have their work cut out for them in order to salvage the reputation of not only TEPCO, but also nuclear power in general.

    I know that the world is keeping a close eye on this disaster overseas, but I am frightened about the possible long term affects on the rest of the world. I can’t imagine what a nightmare the PR professionals are dealing with not only at this particular location, but all over the world. We need to be reassured that nuclear power plants are the way to run our electric needs more than ever by those who do public relations for these companies. I really feel for these people who work around the clock to keep us safe.
