Japan Nuclear Disaster Put on Par With Chernobyl [paywall; YMMV]
Some choice excerpts:
But at a separate news conference, an official from the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric and Power, said, “The radiation leak has not stopped completely and our concern is that it could eventually exceed Chernobyl.”
“This is an admission by the Japanese government that the amount of radiation released into the environment has reached a new order of magnitude,” said Tetsuo Iguchi, a professor in the department of quantum engineering at Nagoya University.
Until now, the Japanese government had refused to expand the evacuation zone, despite urging from the International Atomic Energy Agency. The United States and Australia have advised their citizens to stay at least 50 miles away from the plant.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me throughout.
Some damn the day the full magnitude of this disaster will become known and people will be shocked by it.
The Japanese have lied and covered-up what’s been going on from the start and will continue to do so until circumstances force out the truth.
The extent of the worldwide poisoning won’t be known for a while.
It will likely show up in the fish food chain first. How many cats will develop strange cancers from it?
Remember the cat food poisoning from China? How many of you think cat food makers are going to vet their product for radiation?
We are living in a world of liars.
