Plutonium found in soil at Okuma
Plutonium that is believed to have come from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant has been detected in the town of Okuma about 1.7 km away from the plant's front gate, a Kanazawa University researcher said Sunday.
It is the first time plutonium ejected by the stricken facility has been found in soil beyond its premises since the March 11 megaquake and tsunami led to a core meltdown there.
Not to worry.
Professor Masayoshi Yamamoto of Kanazawa University said the level of plutonium detected in soil in Okuma, Fukushima Prefecture, is lower than the average level observed in Japan after nuclear tests were conducted abroad.Where abroad? Chernobyl?
Whats the penalty for being complicit in intergenerational mass murder?
I can't comprehend what is to be gained by the Japanese government down playing this and covering this whole fiasco up.
