Radiation expert Dr. Chris Busby says that huge quantities of radiation – 1013 or 10 trillion becquerels per hour – are still being released from Fukushima.
This is down slightly from some of the radiation levels observed in March, which – as I noted in April – exceeded levels pumped out at Chernobyl during the week-long fire.
Very High Radiation Levels Found in Tokyo
Busby brought sophisticated radiation testing equipment to Japan, and says that the radiation from one sample from Tokyo was higher than existed inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
