4. Maybe the one going leakage of highly radioactive material into the ocean?
Don't know either, just my guess.

6. Take your pick:
1. Volume of Reactors.
2. Volume of Radioactive material.
3. environmental impact
4. Proximity to Ocean
5. depth to water table
6. a bunch of reasons I haven't thought of.

8. I think only #3 may be truly relevant, and we simply don't yet know
how bad the environmental impact is going to be. It's going to take time to see how bad that will be.

But Chernobyl was very, very, very bad.

12. Yeah one was a war and the other an accident. hardly a good comparison
considering the bombs were meant to destroy and the nuclear plant is designed for power.
