(San Francisco) August 27, 2016 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” There will be a brief hiatus in the numbers while I finish other projects. Based on seven years of historical records from EPA, the Rad numbers will continue to increase in the deadly levels. The outlook is not good.
Many readers have asked “Where did this stuff come from.”
Rest assured the man made, ionizing radiation in the air, water and on the land comes from either nuclear weapons or nuclear reactors. Many people think that nuclear reactors spew radiation into the air all the time so they are really just very big nuclear weapons.
Below is a Google translation of internationally renowned Physicist Dr. Paolo Scampa’s AIPRI Blog calculating the amount of U235 and Pu239 not consumed in the nuclear blasts worldwide.
Plutonium Air 
“The atomic fission tests (190 Mt) have entered into the atmosphere worldwide, are reduced to fine invisible dust of very deadly isotopes suspended as nanoparticles in the air. There’s about 84 tons of uranium and 49 tons of plutonium not consumed in the detonations of the Bombs for a total of 138 tons dispersed in addition to approximately 10.8 tons of fission products. Almost in its entirety they have drifted back to Earth.
[According to the accrual 137Cs / 90Sr of global impact, 95 Mt of Bomb cores were made with U235 and 95 Mt were made with Pu239. Because the average of 6% fission ordnance yield U235 and 10% of the Pu 239 in the bombs. 83.91 Metric Tonnes of U235 was not consumed and 49,02 t of Pu239 was not consumed and therefore released into the atmosphere from atomic fission tests.]”
“These fission weapons as soon as they had fulfilled their local explosive task transformed ipso facto: The part not consumed by the Bomb exists in countless floats and ubiquitous sub-munitions. Radiotoxic through respiration, the Isotopes are scattered as 10 thousand billion Sievert available through inhalation. This is artfully obscured in official inventories of UNSCEAR and distributed with an average rate of 650.45 nSv per Cubic Meter [m3] of air in an atmospheric layer 30 km high with a volume of 1,54E19 Cubic Meters. [((4/3) * 3.14159 * ((6371000 + 30000) 3- (63710003))) = 1,54E19 m3. 1,00E13 Sv / 1,54E19 m3 = 6,50E-7 Sv / m3.]”
50 years of breathing
“In 50 years everyone breathes around 405,400 m3 of air [487 tons] and, according to the radio-toxicity of the ICRP parameters, absorbs a 263.7 mSv dose because of this durable airborne contamination inherited from atomic tests by fission nSv 650.45 per m3. [50 years * 365.25 g * 22.2 m3 / g * 6,50E-7 Sv / m3 = 263.7 mSv.]”
“According to the ICRP (International Commission Radiological) the absorption of 263.7 mSv raises an individual’s risk of fatal cancer to 1.45% and induces one fatal case every 69 people who have suffered this same ionizing dose. [0.264 Sv * 5.5% risk factor for Sv = 1.45%.] For a historical population of 12 billion that has no escape from this absorbed dose, is unfortunately permitted to wait to claim 174 million victims. [0.264 Sv * 5.5% risk factor for Sv * 1,20E10 population = 174 million victims.]”
“Second is the MSK (Mancuso, Stewart & Kneale) absorption of these same 263.7 mSv raises an individual’s risk of fatal cancer to 15.82% and induces one fatal case every 6 people who have incorporated this same internal dose. [0.264 Sv * 60% risk factor for Sv = 15.82%.] For a historical population of 12 billion that has absorbed this dose the number of victims is considered to be 1.9 billion. [0.264 Sv * 60% risk factor for Sv * 1.20E10 population = 1.9 billion victims.]”
Translations of Yield
[(95000 Kt * 56,38 g / Kt) = 5,356E6 grams of U235 fissionati / 6% of fission yield = 8,926E7 grams of U235 “embarked” and 8,391E7 gr uneaten.]
[(95000 Kt * 57.34 g / Kt) = 5,447E7 grams of Pu239 fissionati / 10% fission yield = 5,447E7 grams of Pu239 “embarked” and 4,902E7 gr uneaten.]

There’s no escaping it
The leftover bomb grade isotopes are simply abandoned, unclaimed in the atmosphere, to drift slowly back to earth. The Bomb Rads poison the whole Earth.
Over the past 70 years the Bomb derived radiation has gotten into everything and mutated it. Of course, that includes all of us. Everybody is included, no one is excluded. The only escape is by death; even then your remains are radioactive.
Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.
