The nuclear plant in Japan has gotten considerably worse than what we were originally led to believe by the news media. Maybe it was a miscalculation, and maybe they were trying to tone down any hysteria that it might’ve caused at that time.
What they are saying as April 1, 2011 isn’t very reassuring. I can only hope someone wouldn’t be foolish enough to use this as an April Fools Joke!
According to the report, Japan has gone into a “maximum alert” due to plutonium found in the soil around the damaged Fukushima Nuclear Plant and radioactive water that has leaked from a reactor in the plant.
With radiation showing up around the world, I haven’t heard what the levels really mean- is it worse than getting an x-ray?
