i can't say whether its true or false all i can say is the government keeps telling us there is nothing to worry about well when they keep telling us the say old bs i start to worry.and i am more worried about spent fuel ponds bursting into flames the the reactor melt down why because they would put radioactive cessuim into atmosphere where it would easily enter food chain

oh, well thank you for your insightful input into the issue that i had put ahead. BUT, like I said a least 5x before that i posted this information so I could get the opinions of my peers but ATS, but I think that you missed that part. ALSO, the radiation level did go up, despite what you think of the video.

I HAVE FAMILY that live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains East of Bakersfield and they will tell you personally the effects of whats going on towards where they live. However, this thread was not about the information of my family. This thread was about your opinions about the video, but it becomes hard to appreciate your opinion when you infer that I back these claims when I clearly stated that I don't back up the video that I posted. I was worried due to the fact that my FAMILY lives in that region and have confirmed something familiar.

I'm anti-nuclear and I believe nuclear power stations and weapons are the most lethal and deadly things man has ever created.

There is enough new technology out there to get off the grid and to stop using these horrofic power plants for electricity.....USE them even if a good sized generator can be shared between two neighbors if the expense is too much for one household.

The Americans need to stop using some of these Govt facilities and crack these large money sucking corporations,

I lost count how many of your nuclear power stations are built on fault lines but it's not a matter of if but when one or more explode during an EQK or a Tsunami. Learn from the Japanese!

These aren't my nuclear reactors. More likely Donald Rumsfeld as it seems he's behind lots of reactors in the world.

Personally, I would never bring something so deadly to humanity. I pass on nuclear anything.

I'm here in Bakersfield. I should have order a Geiger Counter already.


Any ideas of what type of businesses would/could have Radiation Monitoring? I have some calling to do. Maybe i can find a place that already is monitoring locally....

I can't view the video either. I don't know what to believe at this point.
All I know is if I was on the west coast I would seek out a geiger counter,
if one can be found or share with a neighbor or friend. I would stay
indoors as much as possible until we get the truth of this matter.
The maps I use look fine, no problems but not sure how accurate
they are.

Off topic: Has anyone noticed the storm brewing in the pacific? Not much
on the weather about it but if you go to satellite images it looks huge.
Could radiation get stirred up in this system?

I too am anti-nuclear - always have been. A bit of good news today is the
nuclear plant planned for Indiana where I live has been put on hold!!
Permanantly I hope.

Do you know any site for watching the radiation over Europe?

Tried to watch the vid on youtube at begining of the thread, but its not working, its says its private, never had this happen before, annyone else had problems trying to view it?

Yep, it's private.
No point in continuing this thread until the video is viewable.

Phage maybe you can give me a straight answer.

Levels indicated by the new pose little risk. What does that really mean if any of the particles are Cesium 137? Does that change the scope of "little risk" Maybe the info is wrong but I've heard that 1 particle of cesium 137 can screw you up.

It's probably set to private because it is a fake video. A hoax.
It has been making it's rounds for days now under different names.
It's as fake as that fallout map that was going around.

We've all been exposed to Cesium 137 and we're still alive, right? Here is some info about it:

www.epa.gov...


How can cesium-137 affect people's health?

Like all radionuclides, exposure to radiation from cesium-137 results in increased risk of cancer. Everyone is exposed to very small amounts of cesium-137 in soil and water as a result of atmospheric fallout.
What it and other forms of ionizing radiation can do is destroy DNA. The body deals with multiple cases of damaged DNA regularly, probably on a daily basis, so I don't see any reason you should be concerned about 1 particle. The larger the dose, the less capable the body is of dealing with the damage. That's why small doses are generally not harmful since the body can deal with those, but large doses are harmful because they overwhelm the body's repair mechanisms and some of the damaged DNA ends up making cancer cells.

Here's a good thread that can tell you more about radiation:

Interey demonstrate it was NOT a hoax, did you read your link?


What just happened? It just spiked from 50 to 389?

We used to leave the Inspector on view during our 10 minute averaging which counts the total ionizing events which are then divided by ten for a more accurate Counts Per Minute measurement. This practice confused and alarmed some folks because they thought that was the actual CPM going up and up. We now remove the Inspector for 10-15 minute periods to do this averaging which is then immediately posted on EnviroReporter.com’s Radiation Station.

Doesn't that sound like what was discussed in this video? A temporary spike over 300?

My own take is someone may have seen such a spike and as your source suggests it wouldn't be unusual. Perhaps not everyone disconnects their detectors when that spike happens.

The problem with this video is the guy misinterprets the spike and thinks it's from a radiation cloud, when it's not, it may be just a temporary anomalous reading. My guess is that's probably what it was as your link describes.

I was talking about the YouTube video
The link I made was to an actual live meter.

I know.

But the link you posted to the live meter has an explanation that may explain the spike discussed in the youtube video. And it has nothing to do with a radiation cloud as the video suggests, but there may well have been a spike.

The numbers for the spikes even match up, over 300, do you see the connection?
