Chris Busby [visiting professor at the University of Ulster’s school of biomedical sciences and scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, a think-tank -Bloomberg]:
I was told by somebody who heard this from a TEPCO official who was talking to the Prime Minister of Japan who said that the releases from the plant are now at the order of 10¹³ [10 trillion] Becquerels every hour. We’re talking about something that is absolutely ongoing and is just being ignored, it’s not being adequately reported by the authorities in Japan or indeed in the IAEA.
Yesterday, TEPCO and Japan’s gov’t claimed the release was now down to 20 million Bq/hr, or 1/50,000th of the figure stated by Busby.
