Scientist Timothy A. Mousseau presented "Fukushima Catastrophe and its Effects on Wildlife," before a room of press and correspondents, reporting the real-life damage that Fukushima fallout is having on the planet's ecosystem. He gave dire news to Japan and compared the damage done by Fukushima to that of Chernobyl.
Twenty-two minutes into the speech, Mousseau spoke on how the radiation is killing off birds. "These next figures are really, really important, and this really was the motivation for speaking today," he said. "These are the results from four years of data, so starting July 2011, and we just did the last count last month here in Fukushima. What this graph shows very, very strikingly is that the total numbers of birds drops off with radiation in Fukushima in a very consistent pattern."
