Fukushima Increasingly Likely To Emit More Radiation than Chernobyl

More than 33 days into the Fukushima disaster no end to it is in sight, and that means the total radiation release from Fukushima may well exceed that of Chernobyl. 

As of March 22nd, Fukushima had released about 10% of the radiation that came from Chernobyl.  Three weeks later the total is now much higher, and there have been massive amounts of radiation released to the ocean since March 22nd.

The long-term impacts of this disaster are just not yet knowable.
