Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
About 40% of the level in the Chernobyl "closed zone", and the source is still active but the shorter lived isotopes will die down relatively quickly when (if?) the emissions are stopped. But the levels could well exceed those at the Chernobyl "closed zone" in another two to three weeks, and, in a worst case scenario, could dwarf the Chernobyl readings. Even presuming they only equal Chernobyl levels how can it be denied that Fukushima should be rated at least a 6 if not a 7?
