RAD REPORT: Death in 4-5 Hours at Fukushima Site Where Containment Vessels Still Leak

RAD REPORT: Death in 4-5 Hours at Fukushima Site Where Containment Vessels Still Leak

The latest report from Arnie Gunderson, former nuclear plant operator and engineer who turned whistleblower, indicates that classifying the situation at Fukushima as "unstable" is in his words, "an

understatement." He reveals that continued leakage at Reactors 1-4 means its time for a new plan to stop the spread of radiation.Actually, the "leaking" of containment vessels contradicts a Nuclear Regulatory Commission standard assumption that "it's impossible for a containment vessel to leak."

In the report, Gunderson tells that the levels at the plant are high enough to kill a person with four to five hours of unprotected exposure.

Gunderson asks for release of groundwater radiation levels, and, decries that a high school about 50 km from the plant remains open with students attending wearing long sleeve shirts and masks. They are receiving adult occupation radiation doses.
