New Data Supports Previous Fairewinds Analysis, as Contamination Spreads in Japan and Worldwide, Fairewinds, August 21, 2011:

At 1:10 in (Transcript Summary)

Arnie Gundersen, chief nuclear engineer at Fairewinds Associates:

  • When saltwater is hit by neutrons, it becomes sulfur.
  • Where did the “enormous number” of 400 billion neutrons/sq meter come from?
  • Sulfur report substantiates that reactors hadn’t completely shut down.
  • Seemed like there were recurring chain reactions after control rods in place.
  • New data substantiates what I had been telling you back in April. There were ongoing criticalities after the unit shut down.
