Hi all,

Many of Thom's callers have mentioned they'd like to know more about the after effects of the near meltdown of the Fukushima-Daichii plant. France's CEREA has made some model simulations, which can be found here: http://cerea.enpc.fr/en/fukushima.html. It's interesting to note that it's been showing up in milk all up and down the west coast, like here: http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/5515.

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
