  • Reporting faults and errors: Paranoiac rambling
  • Description: Assertion that Fukushima may be worse than Chernobyl; quotes no evidence in support, other than media claim by single Russian scientist who claims death toll of 1 million from Chernobyl; asserts that officials are almost certainly covering up a disaster.  This is an opinion article but belongs on a conspiracy site, not the Guardian.
