  •  NSC estimates radiation release is better (8+ / 0-)

    Better being a relative term, of course. I don't know who is more trusted, the commission or NISA.

    Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission estimates the amount of radioactive release from the Fukushima Daiichi power plant at around 1 terabecquerels per hour as of Sunday. A government advisor says he thinks the amount is gradually falling.

    The commission announced its latest estimate on Monday, and compared the level to the 154 terabecquerels per day on April 5th.

    When Japan raised the severity rating of the Fukushima nuclear disaster on April 12th, the commission announced its estimate that 630,000 terabecquerels of radiation had been released into the atmosphere from March 11th till April 5th.

    At that time, the Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency offered its own calculation of 370,000 terabecquerels.

    Improvement is change. Not all change is improvement.
