september, so months ago + not as big as chernobyl

 

but worrying that no one has owned up yet

 

A cloud of radioactive pollution spread over Europe after a possible "accident" at a nuclear facility in Russia or Kazakhstan, French nuclear safety officials confirmed on Friday.

 

France's nuclear safety institute, IRSN, picked up faint traces of ruthenium 106, a radioactive nuclide that is produced when atoms are split in a nuclear reactor and which does not occur naturally, in three of its 40 monitoring stations late September.

But it's not from a reactor, and the levels detected are not going to impact health. A rogue medical waste processing facility could also have been the source... or a poorly run university department, for that matter...

 

The article is scaremongering, especially as they list the four worst nuclear accidents in the history of the planet in a weak attempt to draw parallels.

 

IRSN ruled out an accident in a nuclear reactor. "We observed only ruthenium, which indicates it couldn't come from a nuclear reactor as we would have seen other fission products, like Caesium," said Mr Gariel.

not good though 

 

that no one has put their hand up...

 

with isis etc investigating dirty bombs 

 

there needs to be more transparency at the national level

 

when accidents happen

 

to limit what gets into the food chain

There is an area, roughly in the possible path of the source, that is a huge Nuclear waste dumping ground. It is possible that the "cloud" has come from that source. I would only take an old rusty drum to have leaked.

thank you for honesty putin

 

This isn't the first time radiation of unknown source made its way across Europe. Scientists were also vexed when Iodine-131 spread over the continent in January.

The cloud radionuclide isn't indicative of a power plant issue. More likely to be a radionuclide medicine production plant

Is that area under Putin's control? Kazahkstan is it's own country I think. I don't now much about that area, apart from that there are a lot of "Stan's" in the area.
If the radiation has come from a dump where toxic and radioactive waste is being dumped and not properly stored, who knows what could escape and when.
