Minamisoma City Councilor: ‘Plutonium-Absorbing Bacteria Found On Every Paved Surface’

Local Official: They found plutonium in every sample — Radiation-absorbing bacterium is everywhere on paved surfaces (ENENews, Jun 3, 2012):

June 3, 2012 blog post by Minamisoma City Councilor Koichi Oyama translated by Dissensus Japan:

[…]The other day when a member of the Diet visited Minamisoma City, he said that he had a meeting with an official beforehand but he got no information about it.

What happened to the Ministry of the Environment?

I exchanged business card with three officials when they came for an assembly on April 26. I sent emails but they never answered.

This is my mail:

To Mr.Taku Ômura (Chief of Fukushima Office at Environmental Restoration of The Ministry of the Environmental), Mr. Yukiharu Kouso (Chief of Branch Office at Hamadori of Environmental Resotoration of The Ministry of the Environmental), Mr. Aha (Chief of Branch Office at Hamadori of Environmental Resotoration of The Ministry of the Environmental)
