"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
(San Francisco) September 17, 2016 – "Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” The city-specific radiation lever reporting of YRTW is now every two weeks until further announcements. The next new number release will be on September 24. This is 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. (This repost, with updated Hiroshima bomb equivalences, is to keep you informed. Any changes will be incrementally higher anyway, the radiation is everywhere, and it's not going away. But we are... - CP)]
Updated by CP September 17, 2016: Fukushima Equals 13,009.65 Hiroshima Bombs Today, More Tomorrow; There is No Place On Earth to Escape the Rad: The 3 melted-through cores of the destroyed reactors at Fukushima daily release the radioactive equivalent of 6.45 Hiroshima bombs directly into the atmosphere and the Pacific Ocean. As of September 17, 2016, 2,017 days since the disaster began, this equals the detonation of 13,009.65 Hiroshima atomic bombs and it is still going strong, with no end in sight. There is no technology on this planet to deal with this situation. There are only 336 cities on Earth with more than one million people. That is the equivalent of 38.71 Hiroshima atomic bombs apiece. First thing, grasp the difficult concept that this is an ELE or Extinction Level Event. The deadly meltdown and dispersion of radioactive fuel throughout the world is on-going to this day. There is no escaping our fate, there are no solutions. No one is exempt. The radioactive particles are all over the world now.
All reporting cities are above normal. These are a portion of the American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM these past 2 weeks. 37 Cities are Reporting Radiation Above 1,000 CPM. Take precautions.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. 50 CPM is an alert level.

Changes: The YRTW Table of poisoned American cities has changed by adding a Column on the Right hand side. It is labeled “Corrupted?” The purpose of the column is to provide guidance as to the reliability, consistency and truthfulness of an individual city’s High Rad reading for that given week. Since a city’s report is subject to many strongly felt opinions that can affect Rad Readings, whether or not the Rad Unit was reporting at least 168 Hours (24 X 7) takes on additional importance. The number of hours the machines work in a week is not an opinion. It is a documented fact; it is only a number, a measure of efficiency. The unit either reported publicly; or it failed to do so 100% of the time. It can’t do both. All things being equal there should be One Reading per Hour for 168 Rad readings a week. The corruption may originate with a machine error, programming glitch, human intervention or change, intended or not. The response may be “Yes” for “Yes, it is corrupted.” The entry will be “Left Blank” for “Not Suspected.”
Most Radioactive City in America: Colorado Springs, CO is the most radioactive city in the US, “Recorded,” that is. Other cities have the radioactive “contagion,” just not as severe, even though the listed cities all exceed 1000 CPM. No action has been taken by the US Government, however; nor is it expected. They are the biggest cowards of all. The world destroying strength of Big Time Rads cannot be denied. The Rads can be ignored till they kill you. You can run but you cannot hide, the Rads always win.
Extreme Rad Alert: There is active consideration for changing the classification of the radioactive glass beads exiting the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. The IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, is considering changing the characterization of the Cesium 137 glass beads from “soluble” to “insoluble.” This one word change is very significant, as it multiplies the true harm done by the Cesium 137 by 108 Times. For those of you who are wondering, Cs 134’s Multiple is 8 times. Soluble means Cs 137 dissolves in water– slowly. As a result a person passes it out in urine and feces; it is 99% gone in 2 years. Insoluble means it does NOT dissolve in water and is trapped inside the organism, that means your body, for up to 300 years– dead or alive. Since the Cesium 137 (Cs 137) Rad makes up about a third of the Rad escaping from reactors at Fukushima Daiichi, this is an extremely dangerous situation. Be advised and act accordingly. This situation occurs world wide.
* Isotope Count reporting: These CPM numbers do not represent the actual radiation counts in your radiation weather. It is 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. Squeamish readers may want to turn to other Veterans Today articles reporting on usual things like wars and people getting blown up by an actual named enemy you can see in pictures.
The Lethality goes up for 35 years; then declines slightly and hangs steady for millions of years, for that release. New releases start a new clock all over again. Regrettably for all normal Humans, that is a bunch of generations. The end result is extinction, of course. Everybody is included; no one is left out. Truthfully, it is a bummer and I know of no variety of radiation-exempt Human Species.
Day One out of the reactor use a news reported Cesium multiplier of 150 Times. After 15 days outside the reactor the multiplier is still approximately 100 times the Cesium Twins. Take all appropriate Rad precautions. A second Multiplier is for Rad particles that have been outside the reactor for ten years or more. The Total radiation declines to approximately 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 the Cesium 137/134 CPM in your area and Multiply Times 5. Another way to say it is:
Cs137/134 CPM X 5.0 = Total Radiation released in CPM
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 1,944 other individual Rad elements, only a few are ever mentioned in articles. In short: The disaster’s Cesium 137/134 radiation CPM that is conveniently echoed by local and national news outlets, tells you right away by simple multiplication (x 5.0) how big the disaster really is, even if they are lying. At least it gets you closer than “There is no danger to the public.” That would be You. Think of it as the insider’s secret code. Multiply away! That’s it. No magic or VooDoo, just the facts as close as you can calculate it. Good Luck.
No, It is not OK now: Reductions in the count of over cities over 1000 CPM does not mean it is OK now; or, even that it is getting better. Often times when the Radiation goes down the associated lethality of the Isotopes goes up. The two things are separate measures. It could mean that some of the Uranium 238 has gained a Neutron and changed to Plutonium 239, a more dangerous Isotope.
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.

March 13, 2011: Aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, 100 miles offshore of Fukushima: "During that March 13 phone call, Cleveland wrote, Troy Mueller — the deputy administrator for naval reactors at the US Department of Energy — said the radiation was the equivalent of “about 30 times what you would detect just on a normal air sample out at sea.” “So it's much greater than what we had thought,” Mueller reportedly warned other American officials after taking samples on the Reagan. “We didn't think we would detect anything at 100 miles.” After Mueller made that remark, according to Cleveland’s transcript, Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman asked him if those levels were “significantly higher than anything you would have expected.” He responded yes. When Poneman later asked Mueller, “how do the levels detected compare with what is permissible?” Mueller said those on the scene could suffer irreversible harm from the radiation within hours. “If it were a member of the general public, it would take- well, it would take about 10 hours to reach a limit,” he said. At that point, Mueller added, “it’s a thyroid dose issue.” If people are exposed to levels beyond the Protective Action Guideline threshold released by the Energy Department, Cleveland acknowledged in his report, radiation could have ravaged their thyroid glands."
