Oct. 20 — Congratulations to the new website Fukushima Update and James Corbett for the informative October 20 interview with Fairewinds chief nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen.

At 1:40 (Transcript Summary)

  • We just received some data that shows air filters on houses in Tokyo have seen an increase in radioactive particles compared with two months before.
  • It’s not from the initial blasts.
  • I think it could be from burning of radioactive debris that is revolatilizing the cesium… Radioactive particles are no longer just on the ground.
  • We’re seeing this in air filters that were replaced a month ago… To see that is an indication that the cesium is now airborne again.
