Max Radiation Detected:
Fukushima -> 72,900 mSv/h (Inside Reactor 2)
Chernobyl -> 300,000 mSv/h shortly after explosion in vicinity of the reactor core
Radiation Released:
Fukushima -> 900 PBq "into the atmosphere in March last year [2011] alone" up from previous estimates of 370 PBq total. Radiation continues to be released into the Pacific via groundwater, as of 15 September 2013.
Chernobyl -> 5,200 PBq
Area Affected:
Fukushima -> Radiation levels exceeding annual limits seen over 60 kilometres (37 mi) to northwest and 40 kilometres (25 mi) to south-southwest, according to officials. Plus Pacific Ocean (accurate data not available)
Chernobyl -> An area up to 500 kilometres (310 mi) away contaminated, according to the United Nations

Chernobyl was basically a raw reactor, there was no containment on it at all.

How many reactors does fukushima have/had? Also

http://www.zerohedge.com/node/477904

It's been going UP since the initial disaster. They don't even know where 3 cores are.

Also from BBC

Fukushima radiation levels '18 times higher' than thought

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-23918882


BTW I'm just linking the info, people can take away from it what they will.

I would trade all of the side effects of Radiation Poisoning for just a week on my Cali Beaches. The women, the water, the sun. Please Fukashima, come at me bro psssh coolsmiley02.gif

It's not like there's a reactor core rolling around somewhere.

Besides, coal burning plants also emit tons of radioactivity, as well as mercury, arsenic, and loads of CO2. Concentrated radiation is better than blowing poison out of a smokestack.

Why do we mount round fans on square radiators?

Fukushima had 6, Chernobyl had 4.

The amazing thing is that only one of Chernobyl's cores went up, and those were the immediate results, with radiation reaching all over the globe. The containment vessels are Fukushima's saving grace, even if they are leaking. It even took 2 years for Russia to put the "sarcophagus" on the busted reactor, and I understand they are still working on a better solution.

Chernobyl was a way worse nuclear accident than Fukushima by a long shot.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

All I'm saying, most people think there was no meltdown. All played down in the media. 3 meltdowns minimum.
How accurate do you think the estimations at the beginning when they are finding levels 18 times higher than originally thought. Just a guess and a bad one at that. Anyway I'm certainly no expert, make your own minds up.

i hope history proves you right, genuinely.

Oh, no doubt it's a terrible disaster, but what's the alternative? Renewables can't pick up all the slack, coal and NG are both dirty and dangerous. Talking about Fukushima is fine, but it shouldn't be used to discount nuclear energy as a whole.

I think you have hit the nail on the head. Corporate owned main stream media don't want to touch this with a 10ft barge poll for this reason.
