Radiation leaks at Fukushima pose a global threat

Radiation leaks at Fukushima pose a global threat | 04 Feb 2018 | Lethal levels of radiation have been detected at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant, seven years after its destruction by an earthquake and tsunami. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which is responsible for the plant clean-up, made the discovery in a reactor containment vessel last month. The energy firm found eight sieverts per hour of radiation, and 42 units were also detected outside its foundations. A sievert is defined by the International Commission on Radiological Protection as the probability of cancer induction and genetic damage from exposure to a dose of radiation. Experts told Japanese state broadcaster NHK World exposure to that volume of radiation for just an hour could kill, and another warned the leaks could lead to a "global" catastrophe if not tackled properly.
