Fukushima Now Ten Chernobyls into the Sea? New readings show levels of radioisotopes found up to 30 kilometers offshore from the on-going crisis at Fukushima are ten times higher than those measured in the Baltic and Black Seas during Chernobyl.
…The health impacts on workers at Fukushima are certain to be devastating.After Chernobyl, the Soviet government sent more than 800,000 draftees through the seething wreckage. Many stayed a matter of 90 seconds or less, running in to perform a menial task and then running out as quickly as possible.Despite their brief exposure, these “liquidators” have suffered an epidemic of health effects, with an escalating death toll. Angry and embittered, they played a significant role in bringing down the Soviet Union that doomed them.At Fukushima, a core of several hundred workers essentially sacrificed themselves in the early stages of the disaster. Leak from Japan reactor 100 times more than permitted. Atmosphere Above Japan Heated Rapidly Before M9 Earthquake Geologists have long puzzled over anecdotal reports of strange atmospheric phenomena in the days before big earthquakes.
But good data to back up these stories has been hard to come by. In recent years, however, various teams have set up atmospheric monitoring stations in earthquake zones and a number of satellites are capable of sending back data about the state of the upper atmosphere and the ionosphere during an earthquake. Last year, we looked at some fascinating data from the DEMETER spacecraft showing a significant increase in ultra-low frequency radio signals before the magnitude 7 Haiti earthquake in January 2010.
