Fukushima and Chernobyl

Zero Hedge posted a great comparison of the Fukushima and Chernobyl situations, now that they're officially on the same crisis level.
It includes a great breakdown of how TEPCO officials have completely bungled this whole fiasco from the very beginning.

And another key difference: with Chernobyl, even under utmost secrecy, the government moved fast, sacrificing many people, but only to prevent a far greater damage in the long run.
