Peer-Reviewed Study: Fukushima Xenon Radiation 2.5 times Chernobyl

A peer-reviewed study of actual measured Fukushima radiation releases disputes many media and junk science reports,putting Xenon at 2.5 times Chernobyl.

A peer-reviewed scientific study has reveals that the Fukushima nuclear power has released far more radiation than TEPCO and Japan even admit are on site at Fukushima.

The study also shows several alarming things:

TEPCO’s estimates of the radioactive releases from Fukushima using “simulations” were many times off from actual observed levels of radioactivity released plant.
“…Total Xenon-133 emissions are 16.7 EBz, 1/3 more than the estimated inventory of the site, and 2.5 times the estimated Chernobyl release of 6.5 EBq…” “which is the largest radioactive noble gas release in history not associated with nuclear bomb testing.”
“The entire noble gas inventory of reactor units 1–3 was set free into the atmosphere between 11 and 15 March 2011…” which was covered up by TEPCO, Japan, and the US. To this day they still dispute “complete” meltdowns at some of the reactors.
The Total cesium they could measured was “about 42 % of the estimated Chernobyl emission…” which clearly shows repeated “estimates” of cesium being 1/8th or less are entirely inaccurate.
… “emissions were not only coming from the damaged reactor cores, but also from the spent-fuel pool of unit 4…”
“The plume covered large parts of central-eastern Honshu and crossed over Tokyo and other major population centers”, then “the plume penetrated inland, and covered large areas of eastern Japan…”, and the plume traveled “directly across Tokyo and even further south to Osaka, and Tokyo received an elevated Caesium 137 depositing”
“The first radioactive cloud reached western North America on 15 March”, “that all of western North America was engulfed by the Fukushima plume, as well as parts of eastern North America” and by “22 March 2011, the plume had covered the entire Northern Hemisphere”.
“Consequently, Caesium 137 deposits in March was considerable for large parts of eastern Japan” and the “Japanese main island received 5.0TBq of Caesium 137, or 19% of the total released, through 20 April”
“…During the accident events, Xenon-133 and Caesium 137 were dispersed throughout the Northern Hemisphere” and “eventually also reached the Southern Hemisphere…”
