Radiation From Japanese Nuclear Disaster Now Detected In Alaska

Radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster has reached Alaska, according to the state commissioner of health and social services in that state. He said the state has detected a “very small increase in radiation levels – well below levels that would be a health concern.”
“Right now, we don’t expect any radiation to affect Alaska,” Chris Laborde, the state’s emergency program manager, told KTVA in Alaska.
State bureaucrats failed to note that the amount of radiation that has reached Alaska is from the smaller magnitude release from the stricken plant last week. Since then, the plant has released considerably more radiation after explosions and fires ravaged the site in Fukushima. It takes several days for prevailing winds to deliver the radiation across the Pacific Ocean.
State officials describe monitoring radiation levels at stations throughout the state – in Juneau, Anchorage and Fairbanks – with technology that transmits the information to state and federal computers.
Earlier in the week, a nuclear expert noted that the large quantity of irradiated nuclear fuel released from the Japanese plant would make the disaster far worse than the Chernobyl nuclear reactor catastrophe of 25 years ago.
“Up to 100 percent of the volatile radioactive Cesium-137 content of the pools could go up in flames and smoke, to blow downwind over large distances,” warned Kevin Kamps. “Without cooling water, the irradiated nuclear fuel could spontaneously combust in an exothermic reaction.”
Alex Jones’ flagship news websites, Infowars.com and Prison Planet.com, warned that the calamity now unfolding would be far worse than government and the corporate media said last week. Although government – including the state government of Alaska – continues to downplay this unprecedented disaster, the corporate media seems to be coming around, albeit slowly.
In the days ahead, the monitoring stations in Alaska and elsewhere in the United States will begin to report drastically elevated levels of radiation and bureaucrats will be obliged to tell the truth.
