The government will not lie to you on this one - too many people can check if they are lying. The real truth is, the government very rarely lies to it's citizens these days because they will be too easily caught out. We're living in great times at the minute.

Your posts including this one sound worst than a shady used car salesman.

If you are going to spew propaganda, at least dish out some stuff that will at least fool a child!!

Jeez man!!

He said it was due to the produce ate at the farm which was contaminated. The UK is NOT still "radiated".

Just to add that the food comes from the ground and areas are still unfit to grow crops or feed livestock on. Admitedly there is now only a small area that is unfit to grow things in but all the same it is still not safe.
Surely you remember the sheep not being allowed to be sold because of contamination with radiation?

Please can we keep to the topic here - there is NO radiation in the US of A. We are clean and there is nothing to worry about in respect to the Fukushima radiation leaks.

At this point the levels are not harmful. That doesn't mean they don't have the POTENTIAL to be, I agree there but chances are that it will not cross the pacific and still be the amount that people who are panicking about this are saying it will, there are too many variables that will occur during transit between Japan and the west coast and I honestly don't think a "deadly" plume is all that likely. I could be wrong, I have made preparations, but I'm not panicking about it and downing KI like some people are just begging to do. Still doesn't change my belief.

I think whats even more ridiculous than people going into doomsday mode over this (or from the otherside if you want to believe it's ridiculous for people to NOT be going into doomsday mode) is the fact that a good chunk of people are still believing that the earthquake was because of HAARP and all of this is on the NWO agenda and this is the beginning of the mass population cull.

Of course I think the whole NWO / Illuminati coverup thing is absolutely absurd anyways though


Does the government tell you everything? No, of course not...there's probably dozens and dozens of near misses and almost catastrophic situations that we don't know about than we do realistically. The population needs to be kept in the dark some times unless we want all hell to break loose over something that may or may not happen that we may or may not have control over anyways. I'd rather not have a bunch of riots and looting over a situation that may be a near miss myself. Sometimes ignorance as they say, is bliss.

I think its retarded to think everything about everything ties into government cover up and NWO though...but that's just me.

You have presented ZERO evidence to support your claim, just as those of us on the other side of the coin have done. Until we are given the full info we know nothing.

Please stop presenting your opinion as fact.

"WASHINGTON – The United States Government has an extensive network of radiation monitors around the country and no radiation levels of concern have been detected. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RadNet system is designed to protect the public by notifying scientists, in near real time, of elevated levels of radiation so they can determine whether protective action is required. The EPA’s system has not detected any radiation levels of concern."

Your headline is misleading. It does not reflect what the quote you have included exactly says.

The budget for domestic nuclear detection and radiation this year is $306m - that figure alone should give us as US citizens some degree of comfort. The US government takes our safety VERY seriously.

i wounder if you saw the babies born after cernobal contamination
you would be spouting this drivel
i have seen the long lasting after effects documented from the russian release
and the type, amount, and storage of spent rods at the site is expected to be up to 10 times the russian event

to say there is nothing to worry about
i respectfully ask you to look for some documentarys on the people who were effected first by chernobal
then spout your drivel
because if you saw those deformed babies you would not be saying the things you are "not going to effect anyone"
EVER ONE is allowed an opinion but your attitude lacks concideration to the "reality" of radio active dust contamination

That is not relevant to this thread. Radiation may very well have affected those in Russia... but this situation is completely different. We as Americans have nothing to worry about! It's a simple as that!! You should be smiling!!

Seriously, I'd like to see where that info came from and just what that money is spent on because something tells me the majority of that money is spent on watching other nations nuclear activities.


The US government takes our safety VERY seriously.




I have to ask..... Do you work for the government?

Sorry m8, unless you can disprove it with some kind of linked article its just your opinion.

John Urquhart is entitled to his opinion. But it's still BS. He has no evidence to support his contention. He just misuses and misinterprets data to suit his own agenda. But there are always people who are willing to believe what they want to believe....


Quite..., and indeed he is entitled to his opinion Essan, as is everyone. The difference is Mr Urquhart, journalist at The Independent, has a platform.

I honestly cannot for the life of me recall ANY incident within the UK which supports his opinion. I believe if there had been, the likes of The Sun, Mirror, Express and Daily Mail would've been all over it. Objectively, attributing just 1000 infant deaths directly to the aftermath of Chernobyl would be extremely tenuous, to say it is definitively so is an absolute out & out lie.

To put it in context, they claim red meat causes cancer. Too much exposure to sunlight causes cancer. Breast feeding causes cancer. Life itself causes cancer. I know for a fact there would be no way of directly attributing any Chernobyl after effects to the deaths of these infants simply because it would be impossible to isolate that as the cause.

you are sadly misinformed about the threat
you are trying to calm fears
i understand that
but to misinform others about the long term dangers of radio active dust particles
is a concern.

the exact same govenment story was told to the people of russia
no signs of radiation
nothing to worry about

WARNING graffic content follows of the deformities suffered by the "local" population surrounding
the reactor

these are the effects of absorbing radioactive dust particles. (not embeded because of content)
www.youtube.com...

the dust particles if injested are very dangerous
and to say they could or would not make the USA is WRONG
to say there is no health effects is WRONG

please watch the video op to see the scale of what WILL happen in japan

Not everyone who agrees with the government works for them. That information is freely available, just google "US departmental Budget 2011" and you'll find the pdf.

radio active dust particulates were found as far away as new zealand and antartica
from the chernobal event
what makes you think america is safe from these particles
when the cernobal dust made it accross to the other side of the world?
these particles if injested are deadly
so is america at NO RISK?
the mox fuel is much much more dangerous the the fuel from cernobal
and there is ten times the spent rods on site (mostly not mox)

Again this is opinion. Can you post any report or article that debunks what I have posted? I have listed sources, where are yours?

And there's no way I'm going to read through the budget. You posted the info, now support it with a source.

Fear of Terrorist Attacks Increases Concerns over Building Security
Much of the development effort in chemical and biological detection systems has been devoted to portable or mobile devices that can be employed by the first responders to suspected terrorist strikes. However, since the horrific events of September 11 and the subsequent anthrax scare, building security is drawing much needed attention. Similar to the Beslan school tragedy, many of the potential targets for attacks are fixed sites, and this has prompted security firms to design and market chemical and biological detection systems specifically meant for buildings. These developers of chemical detection systems are increasingly using wireless technology and Internet Protocols to transmit data and secure building infrastructure. This Technical Insights research studies key markets and applications for chemical and biological detection in buildings along with upcoming technologies. It also identifies leading companies and developers in this field and mentions drivers as well as obstacles in the way of commercial success.

Government Funding Boosts Development of Detection Systems for Building

The U.S. Government, through the technical support working group of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is funding major developments in the field of chemical and biological detection systems for buildings. A key driver for this move is the dread about chemical agents being released through heating, ventilating, or air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. Such concerns have led to the development of an array of products based on different detection mechanisms. However, these systems, in principle, provide continuous ambient air monitoring for chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) which DHS authorities fear could be turned into a weapon by terrorists.
A major limitation of fixed site chemical agent detectors is that they must be able to detect a variety of threats, notes the analyst of this research. This is being addressed with systems that have a library of detectable threats and with further technological advances and economies of scale, prices of such systems may also decline. On the biological front, among numerous product developments, a California firm, Universal Detection Technology, has adapted a spore detection technology originally used by NASA to monitor bacterial growth on spacecraft. The system functions like a smoke detector and autonomously monitors the air for anthrax spores. Since terrorists have access to a range of bio-weapons, the ability of biological detection systems to monitor different strains of pathogens with varied characteristics is crucial. Due to this, the uptake of biological detection systems for buildings may be slower than chemical systems. Nevertheless, the actual use of anthrax has spurred their adoption, most significantly, by the U.S. Postal Service. The military is another likely customer for such technologies, particularly in parts of the world that are under increased terrorist attacks.

System Integration is Key for Efficient Incorporation of Building Securit

As the level of vulnerability against biological terrorist attacks remains high, security agencies are offering advanced detection products such as the ThraxVac™ anthrax decontamination and Mini-Raman Lidar™ chemical detection technologies.
With numerous products still at the developmental stage, accuracy and deployability are vital. No matter which detection technology is used to protect buildings, its findings must be integrated with new or existing security systems to alert emergency managers, says the analyst. Some of the most promising system integrators rely on Internet protocol or wireless technology to link multiple sensors to computers in control rooms as well as remote command posts, in order to transmit their data as quickly as possible.


Is this what you meant, because if it is then what they are spending money on is building security.



Yep, building security. This money is not for measuring airborne radiation around the USA.
