Fukushima May Have Released More Radiation Than Chernobyl

Hat tip E-News

Bloomberg reports:

"Japan’s Fukushima Reactor May Have Leaked Radiation Before Tsunami Struck.

"Beside radiation leaks into the atmosphere forcing about 50,000 families near the plant to evacuate, more than 10 million liters (2.6 million gallons) of radiation-contaminated water have leaked or been released into the sea.

"Millions of liters of radiated water have also filled basements and trenches at the station from leaking reactor vessels and piping...

"Japan’s government in April raised the severity rating of the Fukushima crisis to the highest on an international scale, the same level as the Chernobyl disaster. The station, which has experienced hundreds of aftershocks since March 11, may release more radiation than Chernobyl before the crisis is contained, Tepco officials have said...."

Majia here: This is really terrible news and demonstrates how deceit and lies of omission have occurred by TEPCO and our own government.

Babies are still being born with deformities in the Ukraine and Belarus because of Chernobyl.Chernobyl was a monster that devoured the population of Eastern Europe and former Soviet republics slowly. It looks as if Fukushima is already such a monster and maybe much worse.

The only hope for the Japanese and the people of the northern hemisphere is that much of the radiation fell out over the Pacific Ocean. This is a terrible thing for a land species to hope for when it indicates so much death for innocent water species. We are killing the oceans and we are slowly killing ourselves.
