Fukushima Plutonium pollution fallout 200 times higher than nuclear authorities admit

The Japanese government seems to be very good at copying the nuclear bombers, imo.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (DNPP) accident caused massive releases of radioactivity into the environment. The released highly volatile fission products, such as 129mTe, 131I, 134Cs, 136Cs and 137Cs were found to be widely distributed in Fukushima and its adjacent prefectures in eastern Japan. However, the release of non-volatile actinides, in particular, Pu isotopes remains uncertain almost one year after the accident. Here we report the isotopic evidence for the release of Pu into the atmosphere and deposition on the ground in northwest and south of the Fukushima DNPP in the 20–30 km zones. The high activity ratio of 241Pu/239+240Pu (> 100) from the Fukushima DNPP accident highlights the need for long-term 241Pu dose assessment, and the ingrowth of 241Am. The results are important for the estimation of reactor damage and have significant implication in the strategy of decontamination. end quote.

Anyone who considers the unsealing and dispersal of plutonium from nuclear industry installations anywhere for any reason in any amount to be acceptable is a complete lunatic.

(yes, I am inflicting the story on readers again. Japanese nuclear salesmen are after all reading from the British script. )

    When is it fair to call it lying instead of Nuclear Baloney* (NB)?

    In this case I think LYING is more accurate, don’t you?
