One possible explanation for the high readings in Denver specifically, and lower readings in surrounding areas like Colorado Springs and Ft. Collins
is Rocky Flats. It was a nuclear weapons manufacturing facility west of Denver where lots of radioactive materials were released into the water and
soil. When the winds get whipping west of Denver, and they do quite often, and we're talking winds near and above 70 mph, perhaps dust with
radioactive material is going passed the sensor in Denver. Just a thought.
I live in Colorado Springs and the radiation never spikes like it does in Denver. I think if there was that much radiation coming in from Japan,
other sensors would pick it up west of Denver. Someone needs to put one in the Sierra Nevada in California. That area would be the first to sense
anything because of the high elevation and it's the first spot in the US where the current jet stream is hitting.
