Fukushima, cronaca di uno scienziato

    Preciso, conciso, scientificamente ineccepibile. Tatsujiro Suzuki, membro del Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs giapponese, racconta ogni giorno quello che sta accadendo a Fukushima e dintorni dal sito del Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Nessun racconto epico, ma la cruda realtà. Come quella postata oggi:

    Nuclear Industry and Safety Agency (NISA) press conference: The smoke that was detected from units 2 and 3 is gone, and the radiation level is also down. Power recovery efforts for unit 2, as well as watering efforts on the storage pool of unit 4, are now underway.

    Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) reported that a higher-than-regulated level of Iodine 131, Cesium 134, and Cesium 137 was detected from seawater near the plant (about 100 meters). Although this does not pose immediate health risks to the public, environmental monitoring activities now will be expanded to the surrounding sea area”.
