Subject: Uranium from Fukushima found in California
LLRC has been noting the lack of information on Uranium from Fukushima. Spent fuel ponds have suffered unknown amounts of damage and the precautionary approach would suggest assuming it is in the environment. Now (thanks to correspondent JM) we have evidence that this is the case. High Volume Air Sampling filters operated by the US Environmental Protection Agency in California, Washington, Hawaii, Guam and Saipan (half-way between Japan and northern Australia) show an increasing trend with proximity to Fukushima. The inevitable suspicion has to be that Japan is more heavily contaminated, as we feared. It is extremely likely that Plutonium is also present although EPA reports it has not been detected. It is of gravest concern that the Japanese public are not being warned of the hazard to health posed by inhalation of Uranium and Plutonium.
