Announcement delayed a month. Why?
Oh that's OK then!

The emission was rumored(sic) to have originated close to the Arctic circle, with some speculating that a nuclear test of emergency had taken place in Russia in January and the fallout then spread to Norway and onward to Europe:
Oh! So who's releasing radioactic iodine into the European atmosphere now?
Conveniently blamed on Russia of course. Beware NATO FALSE FLAG.
There are 36 isotopes of iodine having masses between 108 and 143. Only one isotope is stable (iodine-127); the remaining are radioactive. Most of these have radioactive half-lives of minutes or less. Twelve have half-lives that exceed 1 hour, and six have half-lives that exceed 12 hours (iodine-123, iodine-124, iodine-125, iodine-126, iodine-129, and iodine-131). Four isotopes (iodine-123, iodine-125, iodine-129, and iodine-131) are of particular interest with respect to human exposures because iodine-123 and iodine-131 are used medically and all four are sufficiently long-lived to be transported to human receptors after their release into the environment. The U.S. population has been exposed to radioiodine in the general environment as a result of atmospheric fallout of radioiodine released from uncontained and/or uncontrolled nuclear reactions. Historically, this has resulted from surface or atmospheric detonation of nuclear bombs, from routine and accidental releases from nuclear power plants and nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities, and from hospitals and medical research facilities.
