Conflicting reports have left many baffled, and now nuclear experts have highlighted that no one really knows the true severity of the radioactive water leaks at Fukushima [...]

Mycle Schneider, independent consultant who has advised the French and German governments

  • The escalating situation is “far worse than we truly know.”
  • “There are hundreds of issues at stake here.”
  • “Whether it’s temperature, radiation exposure, or the number of people exposed – all of these statistics are flawed. We don’t know anything yet.”
  • “This is far worse than what the general public are perceiving.”

John Large, nuclear engineer and independent nuclear consultant

  • “This information is not only conflicted but also confused, and I fear, unreliable.”
  • “You have to wonder what their motives are.”
