Interactive map,

www.nytimes.com...

With the radiation levels rising and hardly no info on what's hitting the jetstream or what is even about to come out of them reactors, no wonder people are hoarding pills and are nervous.

This map shows where the jetstream is predicted to go Friday. Problem is there could be a whole lot nastier stuff in it the days following that.

star and flag

mainstream is now giving map forecasts of the radiation..

looks like it is significant amounts too

I think it is important to also add this part of the article:


A forecast by the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization shows how weather patterns this week might disperse radiation from a continuous source in Fukushima, Japan. The forecast does not show actual levels of radiation, but it does allow the organization to estimate when different monitoring stations, marked with small dots, might be able to detect extremely low levels of radiation. Health and nuclear experts emphasize that any plume will be diluted as it travels and, at worst, would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States.

The map in NO WAY predicts any radiation. Only the jet stream.

It clearly shows suspected radiation levels. Recheck it.

fun and interactive map that was! that was really awseome! its extremely low level radiation, minute at most. ide DEF be concerned IF the reactors have completely gone into visible meltdown, as cherynoble did. thats when you need to worry alot.

Ok, well if I were to go by this map, in seach of the safest place to be. It looks like................Japan !
Is the safest place to be right now!

I remember for the longest time they were giving away trips to ................Japan!
on The Newly Wed Game.

Well not really because the low level winds could disperse stuff all around the immediate area of Japan, and that is not what this map is trying to show.

Well here's their projection for tomorrow:



If that huge body of radiation were to be blown directly over the land I can't imagine the results being too good.

"at worst, would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States."

I'm in San Fransisco and from everything that I have read from reliable sources there is nothing to get all worked up about. Does everything have to be about the USA lulz.

Ok I guess you didn't..... nevermind.
Ya, well look at the bright side. In this case the bright glowing green side. We won't have to get our teeth x-rayed at the dentist anymore.

Just think of the money we're going to save on shampoo.

That prediction is only for what they know is in the air that will hit Friday.
If they cannot do anything more than pass 4 helicopter baths on it before they had to quit, all of the spent fuel stored there will be on fire before long, and that forcast will be out the _ A lot more radiation on the way seems inevitable at this point unless they are covering up good news of a working ongoing containment method and they have it all under control, which would be a first in news suppression history.

The comment of "does everything have to be about the US" is out of place simple USA hate mongering you are trying to inject into the thread.

The most important part of this should be "The forecast does not show actual levels of radiation, but it does allow the organization to estimate when different monitoring stations, marked with small dots, might be able to detect extremely low levels of radiation." It could be more or could be as advertised but I think Japan has not been fully honest on this and for that I believe it is a lot worse.

I'm in San Diego, and I'm not liking this one bit. Perhaps just something I should keep my eye on.

There's a similar map on this Austrian website::

English Translated Link
at zamg.ac.at
(Still doesn't really say what the actual radiation units are for the plume.)

Here's another map of radiation levels by prefecture in Japan:

I'm not worried about this first round of radiation, I'm worried about what's coming up in about 7 - 10 days or so, when the radiation from all the explosions has had time to accumulate.

While I don't think the U.S. mainland is entirely untouchable from this event, I feel that the probability of actual radiation sickness coming to anyone inside the U.S. is pretty nil. It could possibly happen, but all the data and my intuitions tell me that this is highly unlikely. I'm just sticking to my regular routine of popping ascorbic acid and drinking a lot of tea. Until I have reason to think the situation is serious, I'll not be trying to ghetto-rig me some potassium iodine.

It's almost if some ATS members WANT this radiation to hit the west coast.

I don't know if it is from some twisted mind set of wanting to see disaster, which I think is true for some, or if it is people just wanting to say "told you so".


Grasping on to ANYTHING that will confirm their own beliefs and ignore all other facts. :shk:

Fact - first detectable radiation will be here Friday carried by the winds
Fact - radiation released is increasing in intensity over time
Fact - no working solution to cool the spent nuclear fuel is being implemented at this time, which will lead to the openly exposed piles catching on fire and releasing massive amounts of radiation into the atmosphere.
What fact is being ignored?
I'd say some people are desperately being ignorant of the facts in a bid to downplay the severity of events.

I'll make a prediction, nobody is going to be drinking California wine for the next decade. Who is going to want to consume goods grown on contaminated soil?
