Thanks for this post, this is the kind of straight talking & information that people need to hear right now & I'll come back to that point at the
First, I have a few questions about what Mr Gundersen said in this video presentation.
Anyone who wishes to check Mr Gunderson’s credentials can google his name & will easily find, as I did, that he is a (renowned) expert in the
nuclear field, at one point being called as an expert witness in the Three Mile Island inquiry. So he checks out & knows one end of a reactor from the
However, a few things got my attention in this video; firstly, he pauses when recalling the meaning of the acronym "IAEA" as if unsure of the last
letters' meaning (1:58). For a man of his stature in the nuclear field, this surely is an acronym that should trip right off the tongue without
hesitation? Secondly, and more importantly, he says that radioactive "CERIUM" is being released (4:38). Whilst Cerium may well have been detected in
the soup of decay products, I feel sure he meant CAESIUM, which, as far as I understand is one of the key signatures of a meltdown & would be present
in the large volumes he suggests. He refers to "Cerium" as a heavy element. It isn't, it's a Rare Earth Element (REE) & among REEs it isn't
considered heavy. He also said "200 tons of radioactive material are being poured into the reactors every day" (1:00). Erm... really? Odd.
Am I being pedantic, or are these slip-ups on the most basic of details pretty unforgivable considering the verifiable scientific standing of Mr
Gundersen? I just think this is extremely strange. Is this just the downside of advancing age? Personally, I don't believe a man of science
would make such basic mistakes.
The conspiracist in me was expecting to see beads of sweat on his forehead!! lol
What do ATSers think?
Back to the straight talking & information I mentioned at the beginning of this post.... I can't speak for media releases of other countries, but
here in the UK, I have been glued to the news since this all kicked off, & have been waiting for an PROPER government broadcast in response to the
situation. I have one question: WHERE THE HELL IS MY GOVERNMENT AND WHAT INFORMATION & ADVICE DO THEY HAVE? Really.... where are they???? HELLO???
Star + Flag for the first properly informative explanation I have seen on the issue, even with inaccuracies.
