Japan to raise Fukushima crisis level to worst


The Japanese government’s nuclear safety agency has decided to raise the crisis level of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant accident from 5 to 7, the worst on the international scale.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency made the decision on Monday. It says the damaged facilities have been releasing a massive amount of radioactive substances, which are posing a threat to human health and the environment over a wide area.

The agency used the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, or INES, to gauge the level. The scale was designed by an international group of experts to indicate the significance of nuclear events with ratings of 0 to 7.

I don’t know, Curt.
TEPCO was not the source of your so-called news.
And, according to another writer here, unless TEPCO says it, it is most likely alarmist clap-trap.
So, do you have ”confirmation?”


It is just that I’ve been bitten a lot despite being right about news from Japan.

This is bad.
Even though numbers are not high, radiation is seeping into CA food products.
Last I heard it was our milk.
I’m sure, if you’re old, like I am, it is of no matter.
But youngsters drink a lot of milk.
And I have no idea what levels they’ll have ingested as a result of this, that they wouldn’t have.
And the lawsuits are going to be worse than the Mesotheleoma ones.
Lawyers are going to have a field day.
