Who is this Gunderson? One of these "eminent scientists" like Rosalie Bertell was called, charlatans like Chris Busby, McPherson and and and and......? BTW none of these "eminent scientists" is known in my home country, not even by professional radiation protection people. You see how important the opinions and their "scientific writing" is.
Är han svensk? Jag trodde, at svenskarna var klokare än österrikarna.

> Arnold Gundersen will not give up with his false claims about plutonium and the Reactor #4 Spent Fuel Pool. I wonder how much money he has gotten for trips to Japan, etc. out of this clever marketing scheme of his. There are two Nuclear-News messages included in this - the first is Gundersen's latest claims that Plutonium near Fukushima is from damaged fuel rods scattered by explosions and the second is the video that he got a station in Vermont to do. They apparently do work for fee in addition to being what appears to be a small PBS station. Their contact point sent an automatic out-of-the office message; the interviewer is not listed as a member of their staff.
