DOE WIPP's latest "REASSURING" FALSEHOOD is that
"The release material was predominantly americium-241, material which is consistent with the waste disposed of at the WIPP. This is a radionuclide used in consumer smoke detectors and a contaminant in nuclear weapons manufacturing."
It seems today, once again, we are going to have to use math to make the DOE admit the truth again, namely that DOE's Radioactive Cloud contained 490% MORE PLUTONIUM THAN AMERICIUM.
The DOE desperately wants the word PLUTONIUM left out of the public's ears. DOE would prefer to have the public think the release was AMERICIUM. Hell can't nothin be bad that for somethin' named after America, especially when everybody keeps a little bit of the stuff in the smoke detector in their home. Its the updated version of the lie that inhaling Plutonium is like eating a Banana.
But don't take our word for it. DOE funds an radioactive monitoring organization which goes by the acronym CEMRC. Now CEMRC is no prize pig, we see obvious deception in their reports too. Things like making the release look smaller by averaging it out over the whole 7 days their measurement device was running, instead of just using the smaller 30 second period in which they claim the radioactive release occurred. Not only do we think that it is purposefully deceptive; we think improperly mixing units of measure speaks lowly of their Engineering Program.
DOE is running into the old problem of not being able to keep their web of deception from becoming tangled. DOE says the release MATERIAL was predominately Americium, where as the data released from CEMRC says that there was 490% more Plutonium than Americium in that radioactive cloud.. But that should not surprise anyone, WIPP was built to hold WEAPONS GRADE PLUTONIUM, the Americium is just a minor contaminate that grows as Plutonium 241 one starts to degrade over time. Finding Americium 241 is to Weapons Grade Plutonium 239 as mold is to a loaf of bread; its a minor blemish on the loaf but it really stands out. And, that is at the heart of the deception the DOE is using.
We show the math below based on CEMRC's latest numbers; take note that all the death and destruction came from 0.012 Grams of AIRBORNE DISPERSED radioactive material, then consider the site still contains TONS of Radioactive Material waiting for the next larger explosion.
