  • Half of radioactive materials from Fukushima fallen into sea: study

    Once released into the atmosphere, the materials were dispersed mostly northbound and reached the western coast of the mainland United States around March 17 after passing through eastern Russia and Alaska, according to the simulation. They are likely to have largely completed a round-the Earth trip around March 24.

    Around the world in 13 days in EU in 8?

    We know we can not ever trust anything that comes out of IAEA. And IAEA has excluded the possibility of Fukushima being the source of I-131 in EU by default. This is very important in the light of recent and not so recent news about the ongoing criticality happening in Fukushima's units 5&6 as well.

    Although anything regarding the "mystery iodine in europe" (it's no "mystery" someone knows exactly where it's leaking and is covering up) is just a far guess at this point, the most obvious culprit should not be taken out of the picture.

    The IAEA can not ever admit that the I-131 comes from Japan. That's done and over with you know. The reactors are on cold shutdown. People can return to their homes, they just need to clean up a weee bit faster. Admitting that it's iodine from Fukushima that's being detected in europe is like putting a final nail in the coffin of the IAEA credibility and nuclear industry's image.
