A month after the earthquake and tsunami that wreaked havoc in Japan, there are reports that the country’s nuclear safety watchdog, NISA (Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency) is about to raise the severity level of the radiation threat from the current ‘5’ to ‘7’
Seven is the maximum point on the scale used to measure these threats and would put the Fukushima radiation leak on the same level as that of the 1986 disaster at Chernobyl.
A month has gone by and despite the heroic efforts of the workers who have sacrificed their own health for the greater good of their compatriots in an attempt to combat the radiation leaking from the stricken reactors, there appears to be little progress being made :sad:
