A minor weather system is about to hit Eureka, CA over the next couple of days. Watch the EPA graph and see what happens. It appears every time a weather system comes from the Pacific there is a spike in measurable radiation levels.
So you trust the EPA who is ran by the US Govt. that lies to us on a regular basis? The Govt. is filled with pathological liars, not sure how you trust anything they say...

I believe this thread could be directly related to the thread titled
US Gov't purchasing 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide.

Actually, I believe the EPA is at the top of the list of dishonesty, misinformation, and illegal activities.
From the federal EPA website
It compares Eureka airborne radiation readings
from this week in 2010 vs 2013
(they blow air thru a filter and capture any hot particles,
generally report readings hourly)
that is, the attached graphs show readings pre fuku vs today
You can see, 3 yrs ago we ran around 14 cpm gross beta
Now we are running around 140 cpm (recently hit a high of
That is, we are running 10 times more radioactive particles
in our air than pre Fuku.
Yes, things started particularly heating up around 12/25
and has been sustained hot like I have not seen before.
All this data coming straight from the Eureka EPA public radnet site.
furthermore most of them (though not all, like caesium) have a halflife such that they decay by the time they reach our shores and fishing areas. As things currently stand there's nothing to worry about.
It turned out that the water in that area contained Strontium-90, a radioactive isotope of strontium produced by nuclear fission with a half-life of 28.8 years, at a level as high as 440 becquerels per liter.
Enjoy living in the dark ages.
with all the developments in robotics a human being wouldn't have to get remotely close to the rods and what exactly would be so wrong with launching this crap out into space?
just a thought as i don't know much about it...
This isn't due specifically due to Fukushima, it's quite common for radiation levels to measurably go up from rain it's been an observed effect for a long time. I don't know the exact details for it most results in Google bring up Fukushima which is tedious to search through. Here's a paper from the late 50's recording the same thing however
I wouldn't have them build it then
