Fukushima Disaster Reaching Chernobyl Levels

Rupture feared; Workers contaminated; Evacuations ‘recommended’

suggesting Fukushima disaster should be reclassified as ‘level 7’ accident, on par with Chernobyl…

As we noted was likely to happen just after posting last night’s update on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the “calm” over the last day or two that we reported was somewhat broken shortly thereafter. Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan took to the air for a rare press conference to discuss the situation at the crippled nuclear plant, and to mark the two weeks which have passed since an unprecedented, three-prong earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster rocked the country.
Kan described the situation at Fukushima as “very grave and serious”, adding, “we are not in a position where we can be optimistic. We must treat every development with the utmost care.”
New scientific analysis today from Germany and France, adds to research from Austria and the U.S., suggesting the Prime Minister was being very optimistic in his remarks.
