Japan nuke disaster

Japan: Full reactor meltdown in progress: Disaster worse than Chernobyl?

(RT Video Interview with Prof. Chris Busby, member of the EU Committee on Radiation)

Radioactive iodine in Pennsylvania rainwater ten to 30 times Federal drinking water standard

The numbers reported in the rainwater samples in Pennsylvania range from 40-100 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). Although these are levels above the background levels historically reported in these areas, they are still about 25 times below the level that would be of concern. The federal drinking water standard for Iodine-131 is three pCi/L.

(1 pCi produces an average of 2.2 nuclear disintegration per minute.)
