The linked report is from Greenpeace Germany - now the Germans have a pretty level head when it comes to such thing and are as a nation very into caring for the environment.

.On April 12, Japan’s nuclear safety agency raised the Fukushima meltdown to level 7, the highest category on the International Nuclear Event Scale. Level 7 was created expressly for the Chernobyl disaster, consisting of “a major release of radiation with a widespread health and environmental impact”.

"A recent study was prepared for Greenpeace Germany by international nuclear safety expert Dr. Helmut Hirsch. Dr. Hirsch’s assessment, based on data published by the French government’s radiation protection agency (IRSN) and the Austrian government’s Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) found that the total amount of unstable radionuclides Iodine-131 and Caesium-137 released between March 11 and March 23 has been so high that the Fukushima crisis already equates to three INES 7 incidents.

Release of radiation from the stricken reactors has reached 10,000 teraBequerels (10,000 trillion Bequerels) per hour, measured for radioactive Iodine-131."

Now I don't car what anybody says about it being OK and SAFE right now - I for one don't believe a word of it and with 10,000 trillion Bequerels per HOUR - now I don't know what that means in scientific terms but it's one BIG number and it's every HOUR..

GREED, GREED, GREED is the cause of all this.

"Increased radiation has been reported in the municipal drinking water of at least 14 US cities. These are not restricted to the west coast of North America but have occurred in the US midwest and east coast. Where measured, rainwater in every US state and Canadian province have elevated radioactivity. In California, Geiger counter activity has trebled, from 7.5 to 22.5 clicks per minute."

On April 4, Japanese government also has requested the Japan Meteorological Society and Japanese universities not to release data from radiation measurement to avoid “public panic”. Rainwater samples have all demonstrated elevated concentrations of radioactive Tellurium-02, Ruthenium-04 and Technetium-04.

Now there isn't a damn thing we can do about it but don't think for one minute you are not been lied to on a big scale. Hey What's New!

Fish in nearby waters are now being measured at 4,000% above the Codex Alimentarius limits for Iodine-131 and 447% of Caesium-137. Radioactive caesium has a half-life of 30 years. Radiation levels for the isotope are not considered “safe” for 10 to 20 times longer. The caesium released today will remain dangerous six centuries from now.

When one takes into account the conveyor currents of the north Pacific, all seafood will become contaminated. Radioactive seaweed has been found in Puget Sound. Goodbye, sushi!

We’re poisoning the mother of all life on Earth.

And Sushi is just for starters!

Any radiation has no safety threshold for human exposure and the EPA’s own numbers state that 25% of people exposed to these “new acceptable levels” would develop cancers. The EPA is not required to make its deliberation public or debated by Congress; all that is required to make this Federal regulation is simple publication of the changes in the US government gazette, the Federal Register.

The funny thing is it was only last year that Greenpeace came out and publicly declared that the cleanest way of producing energy was nuclear! Hmmm, bet they wish they hadn't said that.

The disaster in Japan is terrifying, especially for those living in the area.

I guess a lot of people thought that last year!

Those who think that this is staying on the shores of Japan are fooling themselves. We all know that it has already spread far and wide.

It's really sad that this is happening and what's worse is that it's likely to be compounded if the US or other areas with nuclear power plants are hit by severe earthquakes. We are doing nothing about it either.

This card comes to mind.

Dont worry people it will all be over soon--if you believe in mother nature-you know shes dying fast; If you believe in Jehovah it is writen by people thosands of years ago that in the end times god must intervene BEFORE WE DESTROY THE WHOLE WORLD -its in revalations-go read-Either way- god or mother nature, the end times are here.

"Some scientists have already declared northern Japan, including Tokyo, uninhabitable and recommended its evacuation. Radiation in Tokyo has been doubling every day since March 11. Video report: and Evacuated to where, exactly?

On March 15, Germany bowed to enormous public protest and announced it will continue to phase out nuclear power and shut down, temporarily, seven of its oldest reactors. However, the final shutdown is not planned until 2020.

On April 12, China announced it was suspending all nuclear construction for 20 months, until December 2012. China had been expected to become the world’s largest user of nuclear power, supporting 40% of new development."

Thank you but this is both too little and, obviously, too late. Nuclear power must be legislated out of existence now or the robber barons and their politician friends will just be waiting until we get lazy and forget.

Radiation was man made. They put up Nuclear plants to produce electricity and power to everyone, not thinking of the dangerous effects like what is happening in Japan. Now that radiation increases in Japan, it is really uninhabitable. People must evacuate and leave the place near the plant. The big question will be is that, what will happened to the people of Japan now? When this problem end? To think that there are a lot of risk to take for the people, for the nation, and for the world. Lets pray that it will end soon.
