Hey folks I think this is my second post and while I've read ats for a few years, I haven't started a thread and haven't figured it out yet. Sorry
But I wanted to post this personal experience from New Mexico about fukushima and hope it kindly gets moved to the right place. I think the reason is important enough.
Ok, so my brother the used-to-be nuke mp, is at the store and talking to some people he saw in a California van. He was hoping to get something first hand from a person about the conditions out in cali.
He says something about radiation and the fellow says "Oh no, we just rented it in texas" somewhere near the airport in El paso.
Another fellow there looking like a prospector pops out a Geiger counter. The cars on each side of the cali van had no reading.
The van from California, rented in texas, gave off radiation. I don't know the reading, but the noise was good.
The other fellow in the California van comes out of the store and his friend says they are driving an irradiated van. He then asks Mr prospector to do the geiger again to show hos friend and again, no other cars around hot, but the california van is hot to some degree...
The 2 fellows in the California van are going back to the airport to get another vehicle, getting radiated the whole way.....
Just happened yesterday
I know we all need rad and contam meters now, but I just thought people should check the origens of vehicles they rent for now. It looks like there will be no precautions and no disclosure about spreading toxic waste everywhere.
Soon, because people will be onto this, they will just come our with a "US" license plate or ok changing plates so people don't know and all we will have is our meters.
I also wondered if this happened to anyone else and I apologize for jumping on the end of this thread - I will endevour to figure out creating my own with this phone.
