I have been monitoring the map on Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center for radiation levels based on the monitoring stations presented. Up until yesterday I was only paying attention to the levels in the US. But yesterday a friend pointed out what readings Japan was giving.

According to this map, Japan has almost NO high radiation readings at all!.. Which leads me to ask... Are these individual stations compromised and giving false readings? Or is this map/tracking system compromised? I may be crazy, but the fact that the detectors DIRECTLY next to the Daiichi Power Station reactors are reading as only Radcon 1 makes me concerned about the integrity of this reading system. There is not only background radiation at this plant.




Tokyo Area


Daiichi Plant


Close up of Reactors


So what's going on here?

What do you think?

Well, let me tell you.
RADCON detectors have been offset.
Just like the ones here in the US...just like the one right next door to me.
They've been working FRANTICALLY on the alarms and gieger counters...
to re-calibrate them, of course.
I live next to the GE/Hitachi laser uranium enrichment facility...the only one on the planet...
the NRC here at this facility is trying to come up with a system (including new software) that will reflect the new higher instances of radiation since the Japan fiasco...
I know this because I have a family member who is working alongside the NRC and doesn't particularly like calibrating this equipment...I asked him the other day how they were offsetting radiation...

He smugly replied: "they make the rules...I just calibrate them to what they want..."
He isn't happy.

If you click on the symbol over the Fukushima plant it will give you a reading of about 143,000 (rads? please correct me if I'm wrong). The monitors around the plant are all in the 2500 count range.

To put that in perspective Eureka, Ca is around 200 right now. Many places in the US and Japan are well below that.

The color of the symbol changes when radiation levels are going up. Since the Fukushima plant has held steady at 143,000 it gets a green symbol.

This is an interesting article.

deepseanews.com...

Seem legit.. And before anybody says that the author is a biologist , bare in mind there are multiple quotes from other scientists as well. Also the dr. Suzuki that is yelling loud about Fukushima is a zoologist and a biologist to.

Here's a better radiation map of Japan.

Hope it helps

It should be pointed out that the map you linked is in a scale of nano sieverts. One of the cities in orange was reading 1437 nano sieverts. That converts to .001437 milla sieverts. A X-ray on your arm or leg receives .001000 mSV aprox. Just throwing it out there for comparison. Below is a link to medical X-ray doses.

Are you able to explain to us what this offsetting means? Like if we look at a radcon detector now, how we would re-interpret to give us a real reading?

YES! Thank you for pointing that out. That is very good to know. It does look like the levels are still reading what they should be.

Thank you as well! This map is superb!

God, I love this site.

Your assuming these maps where giving correct info to begin with, its GOOGLE maps... What better way to fool the masses then by providing a tool they control.

I understand your concern, but only a fool believes these figures are correct. This isn't personal jab toward you OP

The background radiation in Tokyo is only four times normal. While no radiation is good the truth about Fukushima is that it is not as as bad (yet) of an effect as many thought it would. Will it get worse? No one actually knows!

Doom porn sells well here though so were I you I would not bother much with facts or doing any actual research as few here want to hear the truth.

It's just not that bad yet. And I was one of the people that was certain the event would kill thousands and thousands of people here on the West Coast. To date there has not been a single case of radiation poisoning showing up at a single hospital on the West Coast.

Will it increase cancer rates here in the states? Eventually.

I have no idea.
He's the one to talk to and I'm not inclined to think he would.

Why would someone in the know, who was resetting radiation meters, NOT choose to let us know what is being done? Doesn't it affect us all?

For the meters to be recalibrated, the radiation must be more than what is acceptable. For example, if you did not want to be identified with this information in your current ATS username, then it would be quite easy to link to another site and forum post where you had posted under a different name.

Common sense would tell us all that the effects of radiation are not going to strike immediately and will slowly creep into our society over the coming months and years. If this is the criteria used to judge whether it is bad or not, then maybe these criteria need to be re-thought.

Encouraging folks to follow your example and decide that the radiation from Fukushima is not that bad, is not really a good idea - particularly since common sense would (as I have pointed out) tell them otherwise.

Actually this is wrong!

Pre-Fukushima we had ca. 0.0650micro-Sievert/ Hour
and now we have ca. 0,0950micro-Sievert/ Hour
at Chestheight and in Average, on the Ground 20-25% more!

Topic:
i do not remember exactly how many times i wrote that already
but you need to read his System,
he have strange Rules for his Alert-State:



My name is Harlan and I design this Netc.com system, so let me help you understand the numbers. First of all, the system is design to tell when the radiation is increasing, not to tell you if it is bad or good. Only your Doctor know for sure. Second, Netc.com server calculates the NORM background radiation over a 3 month period, so when the alert message email is sent, the radiation is at least 10% higher than it was in the past 3 months. Third, do not compare one site with another because each site has different equipment, different locations, inside or outside and many other conditions.

In the absolute mode in Japan, their sites around the Fuku NPP will always be in RADCON-5 compared to other sites. If the fuel rods break and the radiation going sky high, you will never know it because it is in Radcon-5. Netc.com does not use this method, it uses Relative mode where the NORM radiation level is created and compared to the current radiation level to create the Radcon levels.
