Nuclear Energy Institute: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima Fact Sheet

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–April 12, 2011 – UPDATE AS OF 6:30 P.M. EDT.
NEI has posted a new fact sheet, “Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima.” The key facts show that although the events at the Fukushima nuclear plant and the Chernobyl accident are both at a level 7 according to the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, the situations are starkly different because of different reactor designs and much less severe public health consequences at Fukushima.
