Helga, I think our daughter is slow. What the hell is she doing?
A neighboring website is garnering a lot of attention, and it seems a bit rudimentary and crude, at best. But they proudly proclaim they are "Friends of Rocky Flats" so we can't expect a whole lot of data you can hang your hat on.
Our .ORG neighbor is advertising as Point #1 in their sales literature that is a website, that so called "hot spots" were ruled as disproved back in the 1970s. Unfortunately, David and Kim offer not a single actual source for the showing of their work. David is quick to tell you he is a physicist. Yet he seems unable to grasp high school level science regarding plutonium, and lacks the ability to Google the own bull he attempts to shovel at the public.
Meanwhile, Kim is very quick to put on her alligator tears for the public. She needs you to understand she is fully invested in her property value within the area, and really needs this to somehow appreciate in value. Unfortunately, even after her performance this year at the Candelas club house when people showed up to argue with the crap she was spewing, the Academy has called, and she isn't getting consideration for Best Actress this year. We wish her luck for 2020!
When a physicist argues as his first point, that hot spots were disproved in the 1970s, and then, owing to what can only be deemed as ill fate, a "hot spot", of 8.8micron sized pure weapons grade plutonium 238, 239 is discovered in the open space between the Candelas development and Indiana Street, it highlights three things (none of which owe to him being a remotely reliable source of information):
First, either the weapons plant was exactly as "dirty" as the activists have claimed, and are arguing or: The clean up was so ineffective we actually have random pure plutonium floating around in our community. Third and most apparent, he made the argument that hot spots don't exist, yet here we are, with an actual rarely documented hot spot.
Pure 238-239 PU could only be extracted from the actual work space that was at the former site. We are literally dealing with a particle that is from pre-1990s and went ahead and mosied it over to the open space over the last 30 years .
This random particle exists over five times the legal limit of radiation that was allowed by the feds and the state of Colorado in the 90s in their clean up agreement. Further insulting the injury, it exists at 239 times the states prior maximum allowed level of radiation for a residential area.
We recommend people give these two as much attention as they deserve, which is somewhere between squeak in car, to receiving some junk mail. Either way, you can go about your day and forget about it (them.)
