(San Francisco) Sept 26, 2015 – Thousands of nuclear savvy people know about the recently unleashed nuclear terror and no one says a word. No one in authority has breathed a word about the event yet. 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 with yet another Thousand Point increase at the few active and published radiation stations with an unmistakable signature. God have Mercy.

(San Francisco) Sept 26, 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.

*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 2,238 CPM, down from last week’s 2,252. Congratulations to Billings, MT, again, as the Most Radioactive City in America this week.

Sixteen [16] cities exceeded 1,000 CPM this week in Your Rad Weather. Stay Alert and take all appropriate precautions. A special note here, of the cities listed only WASHINGTON. D.C. is below 250 CPM in this week’s Rad Report.


Two weeks ago 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


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.

(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.

    • Hello, … easily, actually. The two different systems are measuring different types and kinds of radiation. The ones I used from EPA are in fixed locations in the cities and towns indicated. It is quite possible for two different locations to vary widely in readings. The more the merrier.

      Bob Nichols

  1. Good report – thanks…… I wrote you twice now and you still have not provided a list of links so we can follow along – why??? links please !!! thank you

    • The few links at the bottom of your article do not provide the data as shown in your article…. please clarify…. thank you

  2. A uranium delivery truck caught fire in southern Ilinois a week ago. But the numbers were up before that. I didn’t realize Illinois has more nuclear than any of the continental states.

  3. Chuckling… of course they put out false or misleading information. As I understand it the physicists at EPA would just as soon put it all out there.

    The withholding of information and data comes from the political side – from the state house to the federal politicians. That, of course, is my opinion.

    For example: New York City sanitizes the data; Pittsburgh, on the other hand, releases all the collected radiation data. The data you see here on Pittsburgh is a complete accounting of Beta and Gamma.

    New York City omits the Beta data. I had to use multiple databases to accumulate the Rad numbers and check them.

  4. Hi AreWeProgrammed,

    The level had been this high for about 5 years before this month in Illinois. It had been a gradual, but, relentless increase till recently.

    Bob Nichols

  5. A few months ago there were almost none over 1000. I think last December Bakersfield was the exception reading just over 1000. My calibrated analog Geiger counter in Irvine Ca is reading 50% or more higher than a few months ago too. I’d recommend people get their own meters, a digital and analog to verify would seem ideal to me. I think in Detroit there was a problem at their NPP 2 weeks ago. The accidents go on all the time. Not just Fuku.

  6. No sir ,at least not in the states. Not knowing the counts of Chernobyl or Fukushima Daiichi, though logic says they were/are horrific. 20 cities now without an “official” word about this is cowardly.

    • Pardon Altimometer, we do know, or at least I do, the exact counts of Chernobyl, TMI, Los Angeles, Mayak, Fukushima, Sellafield and other power stations. Many to the gram.

      Your Logic is exactly right, though, its simply a portion of the fact situation, which is hard to find. Congrats, you are on the right track.

      Bob Nichols

  7. This place is in the hands of some bad caretakers Bob. Thank you for your responsible reporting. Did this happen near a population center?

    • Hi Altimometer,

      You can bet it did. pick any ole spot “around” Champaign, Illinois and look 300 miles, 480km, in all directions.

      The Count is at 20 cities now. … Do you remember anything like this before?

      Note: Thanks, Worker Bee on that spelling. Good catch.

      Bob Nichols

    • Er, it is “Champaign”, Illinois.

      For what it is worth, the Clinton (nuclear) Power Station is approximately 30 miles west of Champaign.

  8. Damn. Just found yet another city above 1,000 CPM. That would be Harrisburg, Virginia at 1,520 CPM. Seventeen cities above 1,000 CPM.

    I’m considering doing a Special on all the reporting cities above 1,000 in September. The country is at 17 cities that read more than 1k Rads now. I wonder how many there are total?
