Your Radiation This Week No 25

Oct 3 to Oct 10, 2015

UNACKNOWLEDGED NUCLEAR EVENT SWEEPS NORTHERN MIDWEST IN THE US. NO ENTITY TAKES CREDIT FOR NUCLEAR TERROR

 

The radiation Count is up yet again, America. The Count in Billings, Montana is 2,710 CPM. Can 3,000 CPM be far behind?

 

(San Francisco) Oct. 10, 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. Still, all reporting cities are above normal.

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. [6]

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. [6]

Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week

A familiar Leader this week in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America is Billings, Montana with 2,710 CPM, up from last week’s record 2,238. That’s UP 472 CPM. Congratulations to Billings, MT, again, as the Most Radioactive City in America this week.

In August – September 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. It is still present.

 

German Analysis of Certain Isotopes after Meltdown

 

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 this week; 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.

Jeeeez, where is Master Sergeant Woods, 3rd Army Hangman in WWII? We need him to hang these stainless steel Psychopaths and their political hirelings, all legal like.

    Carnaptious,

    I don’t guess the Feds said anything about the Isotope Numbers with any of these 50,000 Tons of radioactive metal, did they?
    Like U235?

    Do you remember any special made up words like Plutonium or Tritium?

    Saw a curious report on YouTube, allegedly from a military pilot, that chem-trail spraying has gone radioactive. “Operation Indigo Skyfold”. No way to confirm authenticity of course. But the wide-spread dramatically increasing counts do indicate an intentional escalation of some type. Perhaps Fukushima just isn’t getting the job done fast enough? But it provides a great cover for a radioactive false flag unlike anything ever seen. These numbers are approaching nationwide lethality.

    Thanks, Bob
    That Google search led me on an interesting chase. One of the sites I ultimately got to was from a guy in Hawaii who is using the same Radex 1212 meter I am. The blog post was in December 2013 months after the Fukushima disaster. I recommend that you and anyone else who’s interested to read what happened suddenly (and for a short time) at his location during his normal daily radiation measurements. What it tells me is that you can’t just take measurements one time and assume (makes an ass out of me) that your radiation levels are nothing to worry about. Of course, this is what your weekly reports should be telling all of us. But sometimes there may be spikes that even a weekly or even daily measurement won’t show up.

    • Carnaptious  October 11, 2015 at 12:40 pm

      The EPA database supports creating simple graphs (scatter plots and line graphs) from data returned in queries, although the choice of locations is rather limited. I was looking at a graph last week (for Boston, I think) that showed a significant spike at mid-day, every day, for the entire week. Without the graphing capability, it’s not something that would have stood out. Because the EPA DB has a limited choice of locations, and now only two years worth of data available, it certainly has limitations. But with a little patience it can help to identify trends that would otherwise be very difficult to spot.

    Point blank Bob, was this a radiological devise?

    • Bob Nichols  October 10, 2015 at 7:20 pm

      Of course it was, Altimometer. We just don’t know what kind and the locations of the source or sources.

      Your guess is as good as mine.

    Good eye opening post. I came across this with regard to the Michigan area referred to above (i.e., ” . . . August – September some unacknowledged source or sources around Lake Michigan . . . “):

    https://tlarremore.wordpress.com/2015/09/14/nuclear-event-potential-uncontrolled-radiation-release-enrico-fermi-atomic-power-plant-monroe-county-michigan-2/

    The reactor in question, Fermi 2, is in NRC region 3 experienced an event that tripped its RPS (Reactor Protection System). This situation was designated “Critical”, with per the report “POT UNCNTRL RAD REL” (Potential Uncontrolled Radiation Release.”

    Per the NRC, Fermi 2, it is currently producing 0 power. Apparently, whatever resulted in the SCRAM, or the subsequent investigation, may be preventing a restart.

  6. Joe in San Francisco  October 10, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Hi Bob,

    I live in SF and, out of concern for radiation levels, I bought a RADEX RD1212 Advanced Radiation Detector / Geiger Counter, which was somewhere recommended. But it measures in uSv/hr. For example, after turning it on, it will display (here in SF) anything from 0.08 to 0.14, which is the highest I’ve seen. What sort of meter do you need to be able to measure the “counts per minute” that are described in your articles? Is there a meter that you can recommend that I can use to measure radiation from soil, products like vegetables and seafood, etc.? Thanks.
    My email if you wish is jzcomd1@sbcglobal.net

    • Bob Nichols  October 10, 2015 at 6:08 pm

      Hi Joe,

      Bravo! You are very much on the right track, Joe. Congrats. uSv/hr is one of several assessment systems.

      I use CPM to publish here because EPA decided to standardize on CPM.

      Google this, Joe: uSv/hr to cpm
      That will get you started .

      Bests,

    3000 seems, unbelievably so, right around the corner. Is the cause known outside of the hushed circles Bob?

    • Bob Nichols  October 10, 2015 at 5:55 pm

      Hi Altimometer, … You Nailed it, dude. Pretty good! Of course, the nuke weapons labs know and their real bosses at DOD know. I mean, c’mon, they probably even know which uranium mine and reactor the isotopes came from.

      Par for the course. They will lie like dogs.

    This article didn’t get a lot of exposure: http://www.pjstar.com/article/20151006/NEWS/151009550/1994/NEWS

    The headline of this Oct 6, 2015 article is “Disaster plan developed for use if St. Louis landfill fire reaches buried nuclear waste.”

    Cause or cover?

    • Bob Nichols  October 10, 2015 at 5:50 pm

      Of course, Carnaptious, I do not know, I was not in the meeting. Judging on their past behavior, they do not have a clue and are just lying to the locals.

      Oh, BTW, they did change the historical records on the EPA monitor to two years from the usual five years. they will use their premier weapon against the locals – they will just lie.

    • Carnaptious  October 11, 2015 at 11:01 am

      I had not noticed the change in historical records on the EPA DB. Thanks for the heads up. That will make meaningful comparisons with more “normal” levels difficult, to say the least, for folks just getting interested in this material.

      I really did not expect you to know if the St. Louis landfill fire played any role in rising rad. levels. I just thought it was interesting that this article appeared now when a semi-plausible cause or cover might be needed to explain what the EPA DB is showing.

    • Bob Nichols  October 11, 2015 at 1:58 pm

      There’s more on the changes at the straight EPA St Louis site. Read it and weep. This under the old “Outta sight, Outta mind,” theory of Opinion Management. Damn them all to hell.

      While looking for the EPA St. Louis site, I found another interesting article in the St. Louis Examiner from July 2015 that mentions 50,000 tons (!!) of radium, thorium, uranium and other radioactive materials from the Manhattan Project were illegally dumped in the landfill. No one is quite sure where it all went.
