Your Radiation This Week No 24

33 CITIES OVER 1,000 CPM IN THE US

(San Francisco) Oct 3, 2015 – An unacknowledged nuclear event swept through the Upper Midwest in the United States in September 2015. No terrorist organization or organized military has taken credit for the event.

In a nutshell, here’s what happened: A powerful nuclear pulse was created somewhere in the upper Midwest and spread a radioactive wave front outward hundreds of miles across America’s Heartland. The pulse was recorded at the few active and published radiation stations with an unmistakable signature. God have Mercy.

(San Francisco) Oct 3, 2015 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected people this September 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.

Storm in the Badlands North Dakota

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. Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are the American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM during the month of September 2015 and the count.

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. [6]

Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week

A familiar Leader in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America in September is Billings, Montana with 2,217 CPM. Congratulations to Billings, MT, again, as the Most Radioactive City in America for the month of September 2015.

Thirty-three [33] cities exceeded 1,000 CPM in September in Your Rad Weather. That is a record High for this column. Stay Alert and take all appropriate precautions.

Changes

 

In September 2015 some unacknowledged source or sources around Lake Michigan spread measurable radiation all over the country. Like a Devil Wind it could be tracked for several days. Thousands of people know and no one is talking publicly.

 

German Analysis of Certain Isotopes after Meltdown in 1992

 

Hold on to your hat. In 1992 Germany calculated that in reactor meltdowns like Fukushima Daiichi the radioactive isotope Strontium 90 would aggressively poison the environment for 109.2 years and then decline slowly over the next 273 years. Of course, we will all be long dead by then. Other deadly Rad isotopes put Strontium 90’s generous life span to shame.

The German study is here for those brave enough to tackle it. Source: The IAEA: Dispersion of radionuclides and radiation exposure after leaching by groundwater of a solidified core-concrete melt by Bayer, A.; Tromm, W.; Al-Omari, I. (Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe (Germany)) from 8. International congress of the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA8)

 

Isotope Count reporting

 

These CPM numbers do not represent the real radiation counts in your radiation weather for the month of September. It is actually much higher [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 and Cesium 134 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 thousands of years. Regrettably, for all Normal Humans that is many generations. The end result, of course, is extinction of our species and all others on the planet. Everybody is included; no one is left out. I know of no variety of Humans immune to radiation.

Day One out of the reactor use a Cesium 137/134 CPM multiplier of 150 Times. After 15 days outside the reactor the multiplier is still about 100 times the two similarly named Cesium Isotopes – Cesium 137 and Cesium 134. After 10 years have passed from that release, the Multiplier is Five Times the common published Cesium 137 report.

The Lethality is still increasing though. Yes, the Radiation is going down and the Lethality is going up at the same time for 35 years after a big release. That is a really hard to understand point about Your Rad Weather This Week. Each new major Rad release starts the Cesium countdown clock all over again, too. It gets … complicated with all the overlapping and the daily releases.

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 Cs137CPM 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. Why is that? Because the two Rad Isotopes decay at greatly different rates. The relatively long lived Cs 137 is half gone in 30.1 years. The shorter lived Cesium 134 is half gone in only 2.06 years. As a result the Multiplier changes very rapidly.

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. The only thing they have in common is that they all kill you. There are also 1,944 more known individual Rad elements, only a few are ever mentioned in articles.

In short, the newer disaster’s Cesium 137/134 immediate radiation readings so conveniently echoed by official 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. This almost daily reactor Venting does complicate your health decisions and your estimated Rad readings. May you always have better Rad Weather; but, that’s not likely.

 

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 since Hiroshima got Nuked by the United States; and, have no intention of stopping. I mean, after all, they get rich slaughtering us.

    Filtration is possible, as isolated environments are. Tritium? How to eliminate tritium. How to clean up a royal mess. This is why the smartest among us refused to supply high tech to royal tards and other swine. Jim Stone, Freelance proves Fukushima was intentionally destroyed. That took extremely wealthy and powerful genetic slag to actually do and stillbe guarded and kept from accusation and imprisonment. Yes, the security company did the Stuxnet, but only that. Several other national entities need be contained.

      Hi Howard,

      I was following your train of thought till you stated “… need to be contained.”

      Really?

      … kinda like should of, would of and could of” all rolled up into one.

      Not going to happen. My opinion.

    I’ve been studying radiation 2 years now. There are different kinds of probes, some of which only detect 5 % of what is out there. That’s sensitivity. Many probes only do gamma or beta and don’t do alpha which is nasty to ingest btw. Some probes are placed next to air filters. Some probes are scintillators. My professional but low grade 1000$ system gives a fluctuating range over 2-5 minutes it varies about 30%. But over 24 hours or over a week would vary more. These readings published here are most of them next to filters I think and they are the maximum of the range for the timeframe like a week. But the point is they are rising. And if tptb weren’t worried, then why are the readings so hard to get a hold of on the EPA site?

    • Carnaptious  October 4, 2015 at 2:03 pm

      Thanks for the reply, Pink Rabbit. I agree the EPA database is rather less than user friendly, and the EPA guide to using the DB isn’t a lot of help either. I do understand that it’s a very complex subject, and for many people it’s probably good enough to be able to evaluate whether the counts at the nearest measuring station are trending up or down.

  4. Carnaptious  October 3, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    OK, I’m severely confused, which isn’t terribly unusual.

    The EPA Radnet database has Beta Gross Counts (CPM) and Gamma Energy Range 2-10 Gross (CPM). I assumed, perhaps erroneously, that the counts provided here in YRTW are Beta + Gamma 2-10 (variables) for a particular time of day (constant), for a single relevant date during the most recent time period (variable), at any of the fixed locations (constants) available in the Radnet Database. Adding the various counts for Beta and Gamma 2-10 would yield a single number for a fixed location (in the DB) at a user-selected date / time, making some kind of rough comparison possible. But the counts I’m seeing for a time / date / location during the last week are substantially higher than shown in the YRTW report today.

    Could you provide a little more detail about your methodology, Mr Nichols? I’m trying to figure out how I’d put together a query for a location nearby – relatively – my location that would be comparable to the counts in the weekly YRTW reports. More specifically, am I correct in assuming the YRTW counts are an addition of Beta + Gamma 2-10 for a constant time of day on variable dates?

    Yes it is the same on my front porch near the ground in open air without wind or sun. Today It is reading 40-60 then pops to 80-100 occasionally. It had popped up to 80 once 2 months ago but never 100. However I don’t have the 24 hr readings. Geiger Bot for iPhone works to do data collection but I just need my iPhone so can’t leave it there. Need to search again for an analogue to digital recorder that isn’t too difficult to hook up as I’m not an electrician. I like the idea of analogue though. Ludlum makes scintillator probes and has a meter you can switch between 3 different calibrated probes but I didn’t buy that one. I guess I’m just to stubborn to get a digital meter.

      Hi Again Pink Rabbit,

      Chuckling … understand stubborn, Pink Rabbit.

      Pink Rabbit,

      I did some research on your area. There used to be many more radiation monitoring stations in the US.

      In the history files for the North Tustin Station very high CPM readings are recorded from 7-29-2014 to 8-14-2014. The highest CPM reading was 4,793 CPM. Do you remember anything about that?

      The station was Closed shortly after that.

      In a few months the CPM Records will be taken out of reach and/or destroyed. Y’know, out of sight, out of mind.

    Just got my highest spot reading ever in Irvine Ca. Felt like turning it off and going back to bed to pretend it was a bad dream. Analog Ludlum 3 44-9 pancake probe got up to 100 cpm today. Some must be alpha or beta as plastic protector dampened reading. 6 months ago it wasn’t higher than 40.

    • Bob Nichols  October 3, 2015 at 9:38 am

      Hello, Pink Rabbit,

      Do you remember if it was at about the same time, height and place?
      Thank you.
