I was thinking that the new thread column could use a refresher. I was reading around and did a title check and seen nothing on this story.

I thought this was interesting and I know the anti-nuke people will want to hear about this.



The hunt is on for the source of low level radiation detected in the atmosphere "across Europe" over the past several days, nuclear officials said today. Trace amounts of iodine-131, a type of radiation created during the operation of nuclear reactors or in the detonation of a nuclear weapon, were detected by the Czech Republic's State Office for Nuclear Safety starting two weeks ago. After the group reported its findings to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Agency released a statement today revealing similar detections had been made "in other locations across Europe."

The IAEA said the current levels of iodine-131 are not high enough to warrant a public health risk, but the agency still does not know the origin of the apparent leak and an official with the agency would not say where exactly it has been detected outside the Czech Republic.

The IAEA said it does not believe the radiation was left over from the nuclear disaster at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant in March and the Czech Republic's State Office for Nuclear Safety could only say the source was "likely outside the territory of the [Czech] Republic."

"Anywhere spent nuclear fuel is handled, there is a chance that... iodine-131 will escape into the environment," the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says on its website.

According to the EPA, iodine-131 can get into the environment after leaking from cracked fuel rods in nuclear plants and, when ingested in higher doses, can lead to thyroid problems. This particular type of radiation is relatively short-lived, with an estimated half-life of about eight days.

Cracked fuel rods?I'd start inspecting older soviet built nuclear plants to start with.Important find op.

I just stumbled upon another thread.

Sorry, I feel that the search engine could use an upgrade.......

"Handling" spent fuel does not scatter Iodine-131 across eastern europe, lol. EPA. Do they really think were that freegin stupid? The ONLY way that could be measured in the air over so broad an area is if something major leaked or exploded. I didn't hear of any nukes being set off (there would be a bunch other fission by products along with the Iodine) and the only "Major" leak lately is from you know where. This could only be a new accident they are covering up or fresh "spike" from...
Are the prevailing winds blowing FROM Fukushima over the last couple days?

Interesting that when you google the "Mystery Radiation" across europe, you get all MSM news stories about it and they are ALL sure to include "but not harmful" in the very first sentence. My take on this is that there is a news blackout on FUK U disaster and once in a while some minor science or news group detects radiation and immediately reports it on the web and ALL the big news agencies immediately pick up on it and quickly call it mysteriously not harmful, lol.

I could see this happening.

I believe in nuclear energy....just not for profit.....

Companies are not responsible enough to take care of the facilities.
