I think it is amazing that we hear almost nothing about this anymore when this is possibly one of the biggest tragedies the world has ever experienced. S&F

Yeah everybody! There's a radiation watch!
Yesterday I participated in an anti-nuclear power demonstration in Yokohama, which took place in conjunction with Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World ... and at this, my fourth demo, I realized how much I enjoy taking pictures of the eclectic group of people--monks, grandmothers, Catholics, college students, a German Green Party politician, and other citizen activists--who gather with the most interesting signs and messages for the world...
[color=Chartreuse]I have a sense of crisis that the promoters of nuclear power and Japanese public[color=Aqua] won’t be able to repent unless a second Fukushima takes place and I absolutely want to prevent that.
After having received money related to the nuclear power plant like a form of drugs, this region’s capability to nurture its economy independently and actively has declined.

[color=LimEGreen]The FDA has claimed that there is no need to test Pacific fish for Japan nuclear radiation reports the Anchorage Daily News but when drilled on details by the reporter, [color=Cyan]the FDA refused to answer questions and gave the reporter the run around.
The FDA says there will be no testing of fish until NOAA testing finds cause for alarm but NOAA refuses to answer questions on what kind of monitoring has been done.
Daily EPA RadNet Monitoring:
As of April 22, 2011, monitoring of radiation in and near Idaho does not indicate any public health risk related to the damaged nuclear reactors in Japan.
As previously posted, Lucas Hixton Whitefield tipped us off to the fact that the EPA has been detecting Plutonium and Strontium along the entire US West Coast since March 18th.
The discovery came after Lucas found that the advanced custom EPA Radnet data search contained several radioactive isotopes that the EPA was presenting to the public as the all inclusive list of Radiation being detected.
2/6/2012 (2:31pm): A new milk sample has been measured, this one with a best-by date of 2/16/2012. The results are posted to the milk sample page. Low levels of both Cs-134 and Cs-137 were still detected in the sample.
Best Buy Date of 02/16/2012:
Cs-134 @ 0.052 Bq/L
Cs-137 @ 0.115 Bq/L
0.167 Bq/L of radioactive cesium = 4.526 picocuries/L (1 Bq = 27.1 picocuries)
The EPA Maximum Contaminant Level for radioactive cesium in milk is 3 picocuries/L:
“EPA lumps these gamma and beta emitters together under one collective MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level), so if you’re seeing cesium-137 in your milk or water, the MCL is 3.0 picocuries per liter; if you’re seeing iodine-131, the MCL is 3.0; if you’re seeing cesium-137 and iodine-131, the MCL is still 3.0.” -Forbes.com
These are the highest cesium levels detected by UCB since at least August 2011 (As the MDA was higher over the summer, it’s hard to be sure of the exact levels at that time):
10-minute interior average Japanese Sake #1 Liquid in Test Dish bought in Southern California Japanese market = 45.6 CPM which is 22.3% higher than previous background average.
When detecting with the Inspector, the sake in its unopened bottle, there was little ionization above background radiation. That makes this significant reading all the more troublesome because
[color=Cyan]it indicates the presense of alpha radiation which is up to a thousand times more dangerous than beta and gamma radiation.
