I'm on page 437 and trying to catch up after work as quickly as I can, but I have to ask a question real quick that I do not recall coming up, and I've followed this one since the beginning.
What about all of the goods that are in transit through the plume?!
I know for the most part they are in shipping containers, boxed, etc. but those things aren't air tight and if the "saving grace" is that the heavier particles will rain out over the pacific (which, I personally think a small enough particle will stay aloft, but will be more than happy to be wrong on this) then every cargo ship in the pacific has had fallout on it or will soon have fallout on it.
Is this a baseless fear?

It's kind of a shame that radiation is odorless and invisible. It allows people in denial to completely ignore it.
