RAD REPORT: Uncontrolled Release of Radiation into Environment

Edited by Tony Rutherford from Multiple Reports

Christopher Busby, a British scientist and Scientific Secretary on the European Community on Radiation Risk,details in this interview from RT/BBC, how officials continue downplaying the significance of the Japanese nuclear plant meltdown. Multiple news sources now report that Japan is considering a containment structure (remember the Chernobyl sarcophagus?) over the radiation belching nuclear plant.

The Shanghhi Daily reported today that seawater radiation readings are the highest recorded since the beginning of the crisis. Toyko Electric has now acknowledged that at least four of the plant's six reactors will have to be decommissioned.

Prominent expert Dr. Kaku, said that if the Fukushima goes  to full-scale evacuation of all personnel, it means that firefighters no longer are putting water onto the cores. That's the only thing preventing a full-scale meltdown. Once they evacuate, we are past the point of no return,  Dr. Kaku stated. If the firefighters are evacuated, this becomes a "tragedy far beyond that of Chernobyl, creating permanent dead zones in Japan."

From the United States, the Department of Environmental Protection (EPA) has confirmed finding radiation in milk in Washington state, but the levels are far below those for health concerns.A sample taken March 25 in Spokane, Wash. detected 0.8 pCi/L of iodine-131, which is 5,000 times lower than Derived Intervention Level set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the agency's release stated.

The following is an interview with Dr. Kaku provided by multiple news organizations:
