the radioactive leak at Harborview

"This irradiator at the R&T building was, like many others, for years filled with research samples to be sterilized with the help of the radioactive isotope cesium-137, which kills HIV, Hepatitis and other viruses, bacteria, and pathogens."

(primal scream)

C,mon humans, connect the dots...
“It could potentially be a target for terrorists to take and put it in regular bombs, because it’s easily dispersed [in the air], it dissolves in water. It would be really, really nasty if it was distributed with a regular bomb.”

But if its distributed by a nuclear meltdown its perfectly safe?  This is known as cognitive dissonance.

the exclusion zone in Chernobyl is 1000 sq miles.   There are others...they call them nature preserves!

By continuously spreading the message that fallout is safe (except when spread by terrorists), the science community brings us closer to the use of nuclear weapons.  Shame, shame on them

I live in a building that faces the loading dock. My window was wide open for at least an hour before any response was organized. Various tenants, including me briefly, walked outside and were not warned away.
If anyone was given information here it was not passed on to the tenants. I have asked various people, including the on-site police and emergency room people and the subject has been waved aside. No problem. Nothing to see here. I believe it was potentially more serious than anyone has told us. I went to harborview er in the days following the spill, but had to wait a very long time and eventually just went home. I want to know, most of all, if I could have carried contamination to my family. I don’t know where to go to get answers for this.
