An Alaska Public Health Official recently made the claim that Alaska did not receive any detectable fallout from Fukushima.
“He said radiation sensors in the state confirm Alaska didn’t receive a detectable dose of radiation”
Pierce, the official quoted makes his claims off the Anchorage station that is not included in EPA air filter data but goes in to claim that this applied to Fairbanks, Juneau, Dutch Harbor and Nome.
We know this to not be true. There were detectable levels of isotopes clearly from the Fukushima disaster over Alaska. Dutch Harbor saw a spike of a wide variety of radioactive isotopes from March 19-22. Juneau saw a spike of the same spectrum of isotopes on March 22nd & 23rd. Nome saw a similar spike on March 24th.
The isotopes included were iodine 131, iodine 132, tellurium 129 & 132 and cesium 134, 136 and 137. Many of these isotopes are short lived or daughter products of others in this list. This group of found radiation is not naturally occurring, they are clearly from Fukushima.
All of the historical readings can be found in the EPA’s radiation data here.
Why is the Alaskan official is telling people no fallout fell on Alaska?
