Radioactive Particles Are Spreading Across Europe and Nobody Knows Why, Gizmodo (#260 in US), Nov. 15, 2011:
[...] So how would [the postulated reasons of pharmaceutical companies or nuclear submarines or transportation of radioactive materials] explain contamination that spans hundreds and hundreds of miles?
The International Atomic Energy Agency says “the current trace levels of iodine-131 that have been measured do not pose a public health risk,” but we’ve heard that so many times before. It’s not a cause for panic, but an unexplained cloud of dangerous radioactivity is absolutely cause for concern. It certainly deserves more than 129 words on the IAEA’s website. [Reuters]
