Re: The Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

Probably that 'non-controll' part: while it's still a different matter than Chernobyl what we have as only other 7 rated accident yet, it still fits the description in being not controllable. Some international nuclear organisations (not: anti-nuclear organisations) actually asked for the 7-rating for weeks, but Japan only added it today. The other opinion is to wait until the major accident which yet didn't happen, does happen. I believe at this point it's not related to amounts of radiation which leaked.

However, by now Japan officials have been very transparent in their actions and very eager to avoid any panic I think. I don't quite see why this should have changed in the fifth week radiation is leaking when there was no reason to raise the level.
