WAHINGTON DC: Traces of uranium have been found in Antarctic ice, say scientists, and they believe it may have been carried on the wind from Australia's three massive uranium mines.
According to Ricardo Jana, a geophysicist at the Chilean Antarctic Institute in Punta Arenas, trace uranium levels were found in parts per quadrillion-level (ppq) concentrations which started rising from 1995 and have correlated with the increase in Australia's uranium production since then.

Forget the Ancient Nuclear Wars, what about the fact that these tiny particles of Uranium are likely to be able to be carried all over the planet and end up in our lungs? That's a big worry if that indeed happened with the fallout from all the Atomic detonations.
