The Fukushima plant’s operator said it had detected high radiation levels near storage tanks.
"It is much worse than we have been led to believe, much worse," said Mycle Schneider, lead author for the World Nuclear Industry status reports, about Fukushima.
Japan's nuclear agency dramatically raises status after saying a day earlier that radioactive water leak was only an 'anomaly.'
Highly radioactive water seeping into the ocean from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is creating an "emergency" that the operator is struggling to contain.
TEPCO admits what everyone already knew.
It's deeply disturbing to see that Fukushima's plant operators never bothered to prepare for the worst-scenario, and that their backup plans were so inadequate. And now we learn that the people exposed to this radiation are guinea pigs, since no
This was the second time in 11 days they've had this kind of leak, so you might get the impression that the plant isn't all that stable. This sort of thing might also explain why the seaweed on the West Coast is testing so much higher for
Fukushima No. 2 Reactor Has '10 Times The Fatal Dose' Of Radiation. Meanwhile, Original Contamination Data Was Deleted
Both the actual situation at the No. 2 Fukushima reactor and the news of the massive coverup that went with it? It just keeps getting worse: TOKYO (AP) — One of Japan's crippled nuclear reactors still has fatally high radiation levels and
Of course, if it wasn't coming from a company that has already lied, exaggerated or miscontrued so much important information, we could listen to their suggestion of a broken thermometer with a straight face: Concern is growing that the
TEPCO Trying To Prevent Chain Reaction At Fukushima. Expert: 'Nobody Is Sure About The Location Of The Melted Fuel'
If you're going to use nuclear energy, it's a very, very bad idea to rely on for-profit companies who have every incentive to cut corners and cover up. Can anyone honestly say they still believe anything TEPCO says? Not a great position for Japan to
