Your Radiation This Week No 18

Aug 15 to Aug 22, 2015

(San Francisco) August 22, 2015 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected people this week around the United States and in your neighborhood. Let’s get right to it.

RADIATION CPM* COMPARISON CITY STATE

 

*Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument.

All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation.  Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous. The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city is listed last.

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. [6]

Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week

A new and familiar Leader this week in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America is Bakersfield, CA with 855 CPM. Congratulations to Bakersfield as the Most Radioactive City in America.

 

Change

 

The YRTW radioactive cities list is now sorted by CPM, from the Highest CPM to the Lowest CPM.

 

Isotope Count reporting

 

These CPM numbers do not represent the real radiation counts in your radiation weather this week. It is actually much higher [or worse] than these government certified partial reports say. Use these report numbers as your Starting Point in adding up your daily, monthly and annual exposure from your Rad Weather.

Most radiation monitors report on the radioactive presence of Cesium 137 at the detector. YRTW will report on the secrets the Pros use in estimating the actual Total radiation counts. It is not a pretty picture.

The Lethality from a specific release goes up for 35 years; then the Lethality declines slightly and hangs steady for millions of years. Regrettably for all Normal Humans that is many generations. The end result, of course, is extinction. Everybody is included; no one is left out. I know of no variety of Human immune to radiation.

Day One out of the reactor use a Cesium 137/134 multiplier of 150 Times. After 15 days outside the reactor the multiplier is still about 100 times the Cesium Twins.

The second Multiplier is for Rad particles that have been outside the reactor for ten years or more. The Total radiation declines to about Five (5) Times the Cesium level. The Lethality is still increasing though.

Here’s how you can calculate an estimate of your Total Rad today: Use a reported account of your Cesium 137 CPM and Multiply Times 5. Another way to say it is Cs137 X 5.0 = Your Total Radiation Estimate. That’s it. No magic. Just the facts as close as you can calculate it. Good Luck. However, provided Cesium 134 is present you are experiencing a recent radioactive release and all bets are off.

Radiation types commonly measured by radiation monitors include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Only Beta and Gamma are reported by the EPA and here on YRTW. There are also 1,944 other individual Rad elements, only a few are ever mentioned in articles.

In short, the newer disaster’s Cesium 137/134 radiation readings so conveniently echoed by news outlets tell you right away by simple Multiplication how big the disaster really is. Think of it as the insider’s secret code. Multiply away!

How often do radioactive releases occur? The answer is: Radioactive releases occur daily in most reactors.

 

Isotope detectors

 

If you have a lot of money you can buy an Isotope detector that will tell you the name of isotopes it is tuned to detect. They are excellent tools for determining specific Rad elements. More power to you if you can afford one, or a group of you can pony up the Bucks to buy one. In this case knowledge is power. That kind of power can only be bought.

Without it, you have what the Pro-Nukers laughingly refer to in our lives as “A shortened life span.” That means the Pro-nukers are joyfully killing people these 70 years now and have no intention of stopping. I mean, after all, they get rich slaughtering us.

Jeeeez, where is Master Sergeant Woods, 3rd Army Hangman in WWII? We need him to hang these Stainless Steel Psychopaths and their political henchmen.

 

Previous editions of YRTW

 

Up to five previous editions of YRTW are listed at the end of each column. Each YRTW and all my previous VeteransToday columns are at http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/

Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there!

    Thank you for your hard work on this site. I found out about it from Enenews. Your readings are clear and concise, and I appreciate that.

    • Bob Nichols  August 24, 2015 at 8:44 pm

      Thanks, Weez, I appreciate that very much.

      Clear and concise is a hard goal to meet; but, it is the only one worthwhile.

    The multiplication example you provided ratchets up to a freakish number Bob, wow.

    • Bob Nichols  August 23, 2015 at 5:03 am

      Yes, Altimometer, I totally agree. However, it is only an estimate of the Total Radiation released. The Multiple you use is totally your responsibility. There are a known total of 1,946 radioactive elements fighting to escape; and they do. What’s more, the humans who built and run them thoughtfully vent the monsters nearly every day.

      These old, decrepit beasts are really just Atomic Bombs detonating and escaping in S L O W motion.

      Bests,
