Lemmings Jumping Off a Cliff

Nuclear agency deems aging No. 1 reactor at Genkai plant safe until 2033

[excerpted] "The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) has deemed that the idled No. 1 reactor of the Genkai Nuclear Power Plant in Saga Prefecture, whose pressure vessel is feared to have deteriorated more than expected, will remain safe until 2033 -- 58 years after the start of its operations, agency officials have announced...."

Majia Here: This reactor began operating in 1975.

This is so insane I don't know what to say. Why is this happening?

I know the same insanity exists in the US as well (and probably many other places also)

We are surely lemmings jumping off a cliff....
