It's far worse that '1'. The nuclear rating on this disaster is at a 4. Chernobyl was a 7 by comparison and they are close to upping it to a 5.

People already have the early signs of radiation sickness there, though not extremely bad yet. Today they said reactor 3 was giving off the highest levels of radiation yet.

It's going to getfar worse in my opinion, all the reactors have some form of problem, and they aren't able to fix them. Add to that no one's allowed near them now and to cool them they're flying helicopters with giant water bags over to dump on them.

The news really isn't playing this up, it may not be covering a huge area, but within that area is serious danger.

The nuclear industry is run by a bunch of secretive dogs. In this situation I would say the press are probably underplaying it... seeing as they don't actually have any clue as to what's really going on at the plant.

Everytime they say something like, "the situation is under control"... I cringe and wait for more horribleness.

I would like the whole thing to end this second... but we all know it wont. It'll **** with people for years to come.

The pro-nuclear-power lobby can kiss my arse.

Just found this on the BBC news website:

Level 7
Major release of radioactive material. Example: Chernobyl, Ukraine, 1986

Level 6
Significant release of radioactive material. Example: Kyshtym, Russia, 1957

Level 5
Limited release of radioactive material. Example: Three Mile Island, US, 1979, and Windscale, UK, 1957

Level 4
Minor release of radioactive material with at least one death from radiation. Example: Tokaimura, Japan, 1999

Level 3
Exposure in excess of 10 times the statutory annual limit for workers

Level 2
Exposure of a member of the public in excess of 10mSv (average annual dose is 1mSv)

Level 1
Exposure of a member of public above statutory annual limit. Minor safety problems

I blame the news for being all gloom and doom. Now during this event I scarcely even think about it >.< I'm like "oh the world is still shit, same shit different day". I do hope the best for the situation in japan.

Just finished watching House M.D.
By far the best TV show I've ever seen. This is it's 7th season, but it still has it. One of the best episodes of the season, and lately there have been many good ones!
