I am not an it. That is an objectification of a subjective human being, and what commonly happens in the minds of the personality disordered.
Radiation IS virtually everywhere, and we have evolved because of it.
we wish to thank everyone who has responded to this attempt - once again - to awaken we, the people, to the horrible depopulation travesty foisted upon a trusting, unsuspecting populace by an uncaring, worldwide conspiracy at the highest levels.
This is complete and utter NONSENSE. How dare you claim "depopulation". Do you realize what the term means? Do you have the capabilities to realize that the population is growing by the day? Do you realize that the amount of radiation which has been vented in the atmosphere is INCAPABLE of producing a "depopulation" of the United States?
How dare you make such absurd claims. Dare I say this is bordering on Treason. I do.
The fact that the true dangers of the 24/7/365 radioactive fallout emanating from the triple melt-throughs at Fukushima for over 19 months have been secreted from the American citizens by the very agencies theoretically protecting we, the people, is CRIMINAL and should be prosecuted as such.
What is criminal, is your absurd accusations which seem to lack a decent understanding of human nature. While individuals may be intelligent, human beings acting in groups are ignorant fools. They lack context as well, and will fear tiny amounts of radiation. This fear, causes panic, and more chaos and destruction than the event itself.
It is a wise economic, and political decision to keep it (true dangers of radiation) from the public.
You claim it is criminal. Prove it. File the charges.
No human being has been known to die from plutonium, as I already linked earlier in the thread. We have no clue what adaptive abilities lie within our bodies natural mechanisms to deal with these radioactive nucleotides...

According to the map, the US, particularly the West Coast and particularly California may be more contaminated with radioactive cesium than the western half of Japan or Hokkaido.
Puzzled by the argument going on here.
Why is that one needs to refer to "secret documents" to determine the amount of radiation exposure.
Given that all sorts of radiation detection equipment is perfectly legal and easy to purchase if you've got a small number of dollars (eg, build your own for $30), how could one assert any kind of cover up?
Why not just walk outside and do a measurement yourself?
Is it ...
a. Too lazy, surfing the net is easier
b. Actual real measurenments simply dont show a doomsday occuring
We believe that the reason that the US NRC will accept spent fuel casks less than one inch thick may lie in an apparent assumption that a risk of cancer (solid tumors or leukemia) of 18.5% or greater is acceptable to them. See: “In NUREG–1864, A Pilot Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Dry Cask Storage System at the Nuclear Power Plant” excerpt at bottom of this post. The chance of 1850 mSv exposure mentioned exceeds the ICRP maximum annual exposure of 1mSv by 1850 times, and the ICRP emergency exposure dose of 100 mSV by 185 times. The risk must certainly be even higher considering that in NUREG 2157, p. D-148, Aug. 2014 the NRC claims that they didn’t have time to take into consideration the new USGS earthquake findings for western states. The USGS map shows clearly a higher earthquake hazard, than previously thought, in an already dangerous area – one which the US NRC clearly wanted to ignore in its “Waste Confidence” rule.
In the meantime, as long as spent fuel remains in the fuel pools there needs to be adequate earthquake proof structural support to the pools, as well as some means of preventing seiche from emptying the pools: “A seiche (pronounced SAYSH) is what happens in the swimming pools of Californians during and after an earthquake. It is “an internal wave oscillating in a body of water” or, in other words, it is the sloshing of the water in your swimming pool, or any body of water, caused by the ground shaking in an earthquake. It may continue for a few moments or hours, long after the generating force is gone. A seiche can also be caused by wind or tides.” earthquake.usgs.gov...

Here's a part in the video, 1:34, where I noticed this: "Fukishima fallout on vegetation in South Florida exceeded gov't notification limit by over 1000% Nearly triple the highest level reported anywhere on West Coast.
So if CA if FU'D, then FL is even worse. This is depressing as hell. I wish they could make nuclear energy obsolete and illegal across the world.
“A large amount of Caesium-137 still remains in the Chernobyl forests, which could be remobilized along with a large number of other dangerous, long-lived, refractory radionuclides. We predict that an expanding flammable area associated with climate change will lead to a high risk of radioactive contamination with characteristic fire peaks in the future,”
The US Environmental Protection Agency describes Caesium-137 as a “highly radioactive” material that “increases the risk of cancer” and can cause death through severe exposure. Of the 85 petabecquerels (a measure of radioactivity) released following the accident at the plant, between two and eight still remain in the soil.
The Norwegian team studied satellite images of the patterns of large-scale fires that originated in the 4800 sq. km exclusion zone – located on either side of Ukraine’s border with Belarus – in 2002, 2008, and 2010. The impacts of those fires, which spewed nearly a tenth as much radiation as the original fallout, were detected as far away as Scandinavia, Turkey, and Italy.
During the last 28 years dead wood and litter have dramatically accumulated in these areas, whereas climate change has increased temperature and favored drought. The present situation in these forests suggests an increased risk of wildfires, especially after the pronounced forest fires of 2010, which remobilized Chernobyl-deposited radioactive materials transporting them thousand kilometers far.
The study, which notes that “current fire-fighting infrastructure in the region is inadequate due to understaffing and lack of funding,” predicts that the most potent combination of Caesium concentrations and wildfires will strike between 2023 and 2036, and realistic dangers will remain until 2060.
While many uncertainties exist in the models, perfectly predicting future disasters wasn’t the authors’ intention. Their paper, instead, serves as a warning. As they write:
“We aim to sensitize the scientific community and the European authorities for the foreseen risks from radioactivity redistribution over Europe.”
