Expert on US, Canada: We’ll see a statistically meaningful increase in cancer from Fukushima on west coast — After Japan, the most radioactive area is Cascade Mountains — Portland had cesium at 100 Bq/m² (VIDEO)

Title: Fukushima – Total Cost
Uploaded by: wepollock
Date: Dec 21, 2011
Description: Arnie Gundersen of Fairwinds Associates (a leading nuclear expert) and Warren Pollock ( http://www.wepollock.com ) redefine the Fukushima nuclear incidents (meltdowns and explosions) in terms of human and total cost. [...]

  • After Japan, the next hottest area is the Cascades, the Pacific Cascades
  • A lot of the radiation came across the Pacific and hit the mountains, hit the Rockies, and deposited on the west side of the Rockies
  • We’ve seen readings in the Portland areas of about 100 [becquerels/m²] disintegrations per second in a square meter of cesium 134 and 137

  • We’ll see over time a statistically meaningful increase in cancer on the west coast but I don’t think we’ll be able to compare by any means to what they got in Japan
