Fukushima Accident Assessment Officially Raised To Maximum, Level 7

Tyler Durden's picture

What started as less serious than Three Mile Island has just become as serious as Chernobyl, with the Fukushima disaster assessment having been raised to the highest, Level 7. From NHK: "For a series of accidents happening at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency of the Ministry of Economy, which released large amounts of radioactive substances that affect human health and the environment in a wide range As an assessment based on international standards of the accident, the worst "level seven" decided to raise. "Level 7" is the same as the evaluation occurred in the Soviet Chernobyl disaster. Nuclear Safety Agency, 12, held a press conference with the Nuclear Safety Commission has decided to publish the contents of the evaluation." Of course, due to the much greater concentration of people, and the far smaller land territory, should Japan continue to persist with "controlling" the crisis with the same success as it has over the past month, very soon a Level of 8 and/or higher may be required. In the meantime, we are getting unconfirmed reports that radiation content in Hawaii milk is orders of magnitude greater than Federal Drinking water limits. While one can bicker over the exact number, it is certain that as long as Fukushima continues to billow radioactive smoke, steam and/or water, cumulative radiation levels, both domestically and globally, can only go in one direction.

The net result of these attemps to downplay the incident is that nobody believes a word about it. A student at the school where my wife teaches has just canceled her Japanese exchange year. She would have been about 600km away - well outside the 20km exclusion zone but who believes that is the limit of the contamination? Would anyone here send their child to Japan for a year at the moment? The consequences of this disaster are just beginning and will take unexpected paths

They can't shutdown Pilgrim in Plymouth, MA....don't know what to do with the pool of waste... they keep it alive so those involved now can get out...everyone knows its insane.. some fucking giant energy company owns it and I will tell you that these people do not live within 1500 miles of this thing...the only thing the nuke industry is missing is Halliburton -  I'm suprised they are not shylocking about some where in nukedom...

With the official releases catching up to what we think is near the actual situation, it could be that the actual situation is about to get much worse.  A more optimistic view would be: they only get clost to telling the truth when they can ride in a white cement pump and solve the problem.

Short summary with data and table why Fukushima moved into 7 and how 10% of Chernobyl has been calculated. Actually, Cs-137 with 30 years half life is has been already leaked at amounts =20% of Chernobyl total. And its reactor 2 which has been and still is responsible.
