Plutonium detected in soil at Fukushima nuke plant, Kyodo, March 28, 2011 at 2:21 pm EDT:

Plutonium has been detected in soil at five locations at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi atomic power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday, adding to woes over radiation contamination in the country’s worst nuclear crisis. …

Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the nuclear regulatory body, said the detection of plutonium suggests ”certain damage to fuel rods” and said it is ”deplorable” that the toxic radioactive material was found despite various containment functions at the reactors. …

    Utterly ridiculous that ignorant copy-writers could continue
    to repeat the idiot lies.
    Everybody saw the big VERTICAL explosion, followed by heavy
    falling materials immediately plopping down on the sides, as
    the mushroom cloud rose.
    That heavy stuff, falling all around “on the ground” was a bunch
    of so-called “spent” fuel-rods, reported to contain between
    5%-and-9% plutonium in the blend they call MOX fuel.
    There is no mystery whatsoever.
    Are there any ADULTS left in either Government, Industry, or
    the so-called Journalism field? It looks doubtful.

    governments and media pretend to be clueless;
    plutonium dust mixed into air, ground, and water
