Don Higson: Don’t compare Fukushima to Chernobyl

Both were tragedies, but one was much worse than the other.

Via Slate: “Don’t compare Fukushima to Chernobyl,” by Don Higson:

On 12 April 2011, a month after the tsunami struck, Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency announced that it was raising the grading of the Fukushima Daiichi event from 5 to 7 – the highest level on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES). This helped to create the misleading impression that the event was as bad as Chernobyl, and has since been exploited in anti-nuclear propaganda despite the fact that there is no possibility that the physical health consequences of Fukushima Daiichi will be anywhere near as bad as those of Chernobyl.

Of course, Chernobyl wasn’t as bad as you might think, either.

  1. There is something wrong with Nuclear Experts. Its like they have a belief system so when each nuclear ‘accident’ worse than the last occurs, they have ‘lessons to learn’ or blame ‘faulty reality’ because it did not fit their equations. ‘Don’t compare Chernobyl with Fukushima’ he says. Why Not? Because it was ten times worse and was a category 8 disaster that does not even exist yet. The reactors did not just melt down at Fukushima, they blew up, as in like a nuclear bomb. The hydrogen explosions were not hydrogen explosions. The blue lights witnessed were not burning hydrogen, they were plasma from a spontaneous nuclear fusion reaction… yes… a radiological explosion. Fision Fusion Reaction is still going on today, IN OPEN AIR, poisoning us all with fresh synthetic radionucleides on a daily basis. And there is no off button. It will keep going on forever past when we are dead from its toxic effluent. Then there is the small matter of the 500 tons of biocide they called spent fuel 1oo foot up in the air at Reactor Number Four. Is that a ‘lesson to be leant’ or is it a boobytrapped Biocide Bomb? Built by design to snuff out all life on Earth ? Enough for 500 billion lethal doses. Oh the experst say, that can never be disseminated… Like they have never heard of Wind Rain and Sun. That is the issue here, expertsion blinkered ureality that do not even know that wind blows that poison everywhere on Earth.
