Fukushima people. It ain't over yet.

The salt domes here in Louisiana and specifically the one at Bayou Corne have had radiation show up in them and it has been known that radioactive waste has been disposed of at some of the domes. I remember reading such at our local news websites and perhaps (?) as well.

We had a wintery mix...sleet/rain/snow here in parts of Louisiana around the same time as Arkansas and I thought it quite odd that some of our local news websites had articles like I've never seen before. They mentioned that if one has to be out or gets caught in the mess, to make sure and be covered well with boots, rainwear and such. Then shower immediately once you are home. Not to touch the stuff. Not let the kiddies ingest it and so on. The warnings seemed unusual to me. I wish I had known how to keep the info. We've had wintery mixes here before but never saw warnings about it and to avoid skin contact with such and all of that. May be nothing or have nothing to do with the Arkansas dealy...just seemed odd to me is all.

Many of the salt domes have been used for disposal of various nasties and not just from the oil/gas companies. The process of fracking itself, does use radioactive chemicals that can pass into the water systems, air and so forth.

Also to add to the strange factor was the 100,000 or so fish that died within 1 day of the mass bird deaths in Arkansas in 2011.

I don't know where the link went to...but there was an article about the GE reactors that they knew would fail and used anyway. This was found in the Fukushima incident. Then the US, citing an emergency looked all these GE reactors in every state nuclear facility and found a greater majority were having the same problems, and that they were all releasing radiation. A significant amount of radiation too.

People seem to be ignorant of the severity of the Fukushima fallout and how it has been spreading all over the Northern Hemisphere.... and have any of you contacted a Congressman or Senator? Raised the awareness of your friends and neighbors? We are being poisoned. The Nuclear industry and politicians are giving us the old smoke and mirrors about the matter. Denial is rampant. Yet we are all receiving extra radiation in our water and food and air. This is a serious matter that isn't being taken seriously. And life goes on.

Everyone seems to be missing one point told in the OP: the radiation spike lasted for abouts 24h, which means short half-life. I'd go looking for a reason closer than Fukushima.

A couple posters have inferred their might be some relationship between the bird deaths here and there. Wouldn't the CDC be notified and a cursory examination be performed? Wouldn't they also check for radiation count? Just seems prudent were they to examine anything, standard practice. ..?

Before you get all worked up about this article I think you should consider the source...

Before its news isn't one of the most credible sites for any real news.

Now does this make any sense to you....

Snow cover- Snow is a strong emitter and reflector of radiation. At night, especially when it is clear, snow cover will enhance the cooling that takes place. Fresh snow is better at this than old snow or snow that is not covering all the ground. It is ideal to have a solid layer of fresh snow cover.

Sounds like a good reason for his counter to rise when he sets it on the ground. Isn't winter a cloudier time of year which in turn means the radiation from the Earth has a harder time escaping than when the skies are clear?

Solar radiation, and heat radiation, are different from Nuclear Radiation which is measurable with a Geiger counter. Heat radiation can be measured with...Dum Dum Dummmmmmmmmmm....a thermometer.

Your comment made me giggle. Thanks.
