Fukushima: Second Worst Nuclear Disaster Ever

Japan’s nuclear power agency has raised the threat level from the Fukushima disaster to level 7, the highest possible level and tied with Chernobyl.

The amount of iodine-131 released is about 10% of that released in the Chernobyl disaster, according to authorities.

    At this point in the Chernobyl disaster, they were already designing the sarcophagus and beginning to tunnel for it.

    At this point in the Fukushima disaster, they’ve figured out that it’s leaking into the ocean, but they don’t know why.

    I like the Japanese for their complete lack of sophisticated spin. Any other nation I can think of would be flat-out lying in every way imaginable, but not Japan. They’re even politely raising the point that it would be premature to rate the severity of the disaster before they’ve managed to do anything at all meaningful to stop it. Their tiger moms must have really messed them up bigtime.

    Hate to say I told you so, but um, I told you so.

    Thank God that because of extenuating circumstances, this won’t be quite the human and ecological catastrophe Chernobyl was/is.
