Does this Danish official have any credibility?

USA soil still has radioactive material from Fukushima nuclear disaster
by Christina MacPherson
Fox: Fukushima radioactive material still being found in U.S. soil —
Japan Gov’t: The disaster “posed radiation threat to human society”…
In 4 days “detectable all across northern hemisphere” — Denmark:
Fukushima clearly had widespread consequences, not limited to borders
Danish Emergency Management Agency’s Carsten Israelson, Nordic Nuclear
Safety Research’s 2013 Fukushima seminar (at 4:15 in): The accident in
Fukushima… clearly showed that there are consequences that are
widespread, and is not limited to borders… Nuclear accidents do
happen! Nuclear accidents will likely have widespread consequences –
for all of us. >> Watch presentation hereNational Institute of
Radiological Sciences (Japan), March 3, 2014: The Fukushima Daiichi
Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident led to the release of large
amounts of radionuclides into the environment. [...] The released
radioactive materials posed radiation threat to human society. Thus,
source identification of radioactive contamination and long-term
environmental behavior of released radioactive materials are important
issues of study after the FDNPP accident.
Japan Atomic Energy Agency & University of Tokyo, Apr. 10, 2014: By
March 15, traces from the accident in Fukushima were detectable all
across the northern hemisphere. By April 13, the associated
radioactivity had spread to the southern hemisphere of the
Asia-Pacific region and was clearly detectable at CTBT IMS stations
located in Australia, Fiji, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea.
Fox 10 News — Phoenix, AZ, July 15, 2014: [Aubrey Godwin, director of
Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency] says radioactive material can
still be found in Arizona soil from nuclear weapons testing in the
50′s and from Fukushima’s nuclear disaster in 2011. Despite that
Godwin says there is no health concern.
