This should be a 7 on the nuclear disaster scale, easily....
No, it's really not. Chernobyl was far beyond the pale of this, kinda like Hiroshima/Nagasaki was far beyond the pale of the Tokyo and Dresden firebombings. Mind you, all of these are horrible situations, and by saying it's not Chernobyl, I am not trying to minimize the loss of life or the depth of the situation. Just that Chernobyl was truly that far worse than this one as time will end up showing.

Chernobyl didn't even have a containment system in place. As a result they had an immediate significant release of radioactive materials, that's just not happening in Japan. Different situations.
