WOW! Can you believe this? The EPA doesn't seem to think it is necessary to continue to test radiation levels.
WTH? Sorry, but I think this is crazy. The situation has been virually forgotten about on main stream media. However, I can tell you.....I live in Southern CA, and I have a portable "NUKE ALERT" on my keyring. And it went off for the first time......Saturday! Meaning that there was enough radiation in the air to set off level RAD 1 on my NUKE ALERT. Now granted this is the lowest level....however it did not stop for hours. It chirps every 36 seconds at level "1". Point is......we are still being exposed. The vegis (organic) on the shelves out here, specifically spinage...look terrible! I'm certain we are still having issues with radiation contamination. Below is what the EPA is stating and a link to their website.



EPA states they will return to their normal routine RadNet sampling and analysis process for precipitation, drinking water and milk.

In accordance with normal RadNet protocol, EPA will be analyzing milk and drinking water samples on a quarterly basis and precipitation samples as part of a monthly composite. The next round of milk and drinking water sampling will take place in approximately three months.

Considering that for most of the time since the incident at Fukushima the EPA haven't been exactly open with the levels they've been recording this development isn't particularly surprising.

Fukushima is now barely a memory for many people. There's the sideshow of the birth-certificate, which was pushed away by the even bigger sideshow of the OBL 'burial at sea'.

The following quote you posted is revealing


"In accordance with normal RadNet protocol, EPA will be analyzing milk and drinking water samples on a quarterly basis and precipitation samples as part of a monthly composite. The next round of milk and drinking water sampling will take place in approximately three months."


I think it is safe to assume they are expecting a peak in fallout sometime in the next three months, and don't want people to know about it.

Oh that's great news! It's probably so people won't keep seeing images like this. (which is current)





Not monitoring that radiation is absurd.

I hope people with geigerteller equipment will start posting more, along with those who sell such equipment. If such websites were to be shutdown or hacked/DDOS attacked then I'd worry and even would start thinking of moving to someplace in the southern hemisphere (which I have been for years, this would just be another good reason).

Here's some relevant info I found (several weeks old), sure it's already been mentioned in one of the other threads:

how would TPTB completely win
the war against the most heavily armed
populace in the world ???

nuke them before they even fired a shot.

I wonder if gov employees are getting
their Potassium Iodide injections already ?

Given the government's performance during and after Katrina and the BP disaster in the Gulf, does this really surprise you? Experts are wondering why this release is being allowed to continue instead of flooding with boron to stop the reaction and then concrete encasement.

Can we really honestly blame this performance on incompetence? We can't rely on this government to protect us or inform us. They apparently have another agenda.

I quit buying California produce and bought a radiation detector to check the produce I do buy.

It has nothing to do with incompetence and everything to do with cost-cutting the bottom line.

Face the facts people... our health and safety is not as important as "staying within the budget".

Plain and simple.

lol the amount of potassium iodide here is nothing hahaa. By the time it reaches us it has almost completely decayed

Also one question, why do they say "declining levels of radiation" when they've actually been increasing... I've been watching the graphs on this website: transport.nilu.no...
since day 7, and they have done anything but decline.

Also the Xe-133 we're starting to get into the green part of the graph. Correct me if I'm wrong but it started out at purple, now its almost green? thats not a decline you #ing dumbass EPA thats an increase

I'm disappointed, but not really that surprised. It kind of reminds me of the South Park episode where everyone stuck their head in the sand, like maybe if you ignore the problem by pretending you can't see it, it will go away. 3 months is a long time, and some big radiation waves could come and go in that time in the air.

However after it washed down in the rain, it will eventually show up in the milk, so we'll see it eventually.

If you're worried about it in the USA, how do you think the people in Tokyo feel? It must be much more concentrated in Tokyo.

The link is in the image, but yeah, I'd rather click than type too.

I've seen questions about all three of those. Two of them, I really don't know the answer.

But the third one, I'm pretty sure radiation isn't good for you!

Any chance you could give us info on your little nuke alert? Would really love to find one of those for myself


Good info+

Yeah it updates. You can choose from Xenon-133, Caesium-137 or Iodine-131....like radiation shopping.
