100 kBq/Kg Seaweed confirmed

Over 100,000 Bq/Kg in seaweed off the eastern coast of Japan…

The below is a good overview article, making lots of observations that have been made for months by independent investigators (Arnie Gundersen, Ex-NFK, Greenpeace – see my list of NUCLEAR NEWS sources), but now that much of the mainstream has lost attention, it’s all becoming ‘official news': 

SOURCE: On the Bloomberg wire (May 27, 2011): Tepco Failed to Disclose Scale of Fukushima Radiation Leaks, Academics Say – By Stuart Biggs and Yuriy Humber:  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-05-27/tepco-faces-massive-problem-containing-radioactive-water-at-fukushima.html    Among the many points it makes, it also confirms the labs used by Greenpeace in France and Belgium (my guess was right in my post the other day):

“The government needs to investigate the total amount of radiation leaked from the plant to ascertain damage to the ocean from contaminated water, said van de Putte, also a nuclear specialist at environmental group Greenpeace International.

The group found seaweed and fish contaminated to more than 50 times the 2,000 becquerel per kilogram legal limit for radioactive iodine-131 off the coast of Fukushima during a survey between May 3 and 9.

Mol, Belgium-based Nuclear Research Centre and Herouville- Saint-Clair, France-based Association pour le Controle de la Radioactivite dans l’Ouest confirmed they conducted analysis of the samples supplied by Greenpeace.”
