Fukushima Disaster Greater Than Chernobyl

A Russian nuclear expert has stated that the crisis situation in Fukushima is much worse than that in Chernobyl and might lead to a change in the scale for measuring nuclear emergencies.
“The crisis in Japan will cost a lot more than Chernobyl in terms of economic and human losses,” according to nuclear engineer Nataliya Mironova, who is a leading figure in Russia in the field.
Mironova is visiting the USA together with other people engaged in anti-nuclear activism on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy of April 26, 1986.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that radioactive water is leaking from a breach in the Fukushima NPP.
