Fukushima Update: "Your Radiation This Week: 12,919.35 Hiroshima Bombs"
Publishing change: Due to Bob Nichol's other commitments these city specific updates will now be delivered as they become available. I will update the weekly Hiroshima bomb equivalences. This repost of the latest city specific data is to keep you informed, while understanding that nothing has changed, or will, except inevitable increases in the radiation levels. The radiation's not going anywhere, folks, but we are... - CP
Updated by CP Sept 3, 2016: The violent, extinction-level-event occurred Mar 11, 2011. Fukushima equals 12,919.35 Hiroshima bombs today, more tomorrow; there is no place on earth to escape the rad: The 3 melted-through reactor cores of the destroyed reactors at Fukushima, now believed melted together into one huge "corium", daily release the radioactive equivalent of 6.45 Hiroshima bombs directly into the atmosphere and the Pacific Ocean. As of Sept 3 , 2016, 2003 days since the disaster began, this equals the detonation of 12,919.35 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 38.45 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.
"Fukushima Update August 27, 2016: Poisoned Air for All"
By Bob Nichols
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.]"

A Comment: Add the "leftover bomb grade isotopes" radiation to the amount released by Fukushima since March 11, 2011, tallied below*, to understand the total, and increasing, radioactive exposure to us all. As Nichols writes, "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." This is scientific FACT, not speculation, not some ridiculous melodramatic fable. All life on this planet is being slowly radiation-poisoned into extinction. There are no solutions. There's no technology on this planet to solve this problem, no "fix". I do understand your reaction, I know, over 5 years... shock, denial, ridicule, disbelief, outrage, terror, tears, panic, absolutely mind numbing horror and despair... I know, been there, done all that. If you believe in a Deity, a Divine Intervention, now would be a really good time for it, but I don't think that's going to happen. This won't happen tomorrow, or next week, it's a long term process, but it's unstoppable, and it will happen. Don't believe me, please, research it for yourself. Search YouTube for "Pacific dieoffs", review the evidence - hundreds of posts- right here on this little blog, covered since day 1 of this all-too-real nightmare, if you dare. Believe what you need to, folks, and stay strong. Savor this day, and your life.
"A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945", by Isao Hashimoto
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."

"Your Radiation This Week, July 30 to August 13, 2016"
By Bob Nichols
"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
(San Francisco) August 13, 2016 – "Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Beta and Gamma Highs that affected people in the last 2 weeks around the United States and in your neighborhood. There is no way to recover from these kinds of exposures. After all, we are not immune to either one. There is no medicine and there is no cure. Millions now possess a shortened life span due to their radiation exposures. Let’s get right to it.
Updated by CP Sept 3, 2016: The violent, extinction-level-event occurred Mar 11, 2011. Fukushima equals 12,919.35 Hiroshima bombs today, more tomorrow; there is no place on earth to escape the rad: The 3 melted-through coriums of the destroyed reactors at Fukushima daily release the radioactive equivalent of 6.45 Hiroshima bombs directly into the atmosphere and the Pacific Ocean.

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 38.45 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.
There are 1,946 radioactive products produced by nuclear weapons and atomic reactors according to the Oak Ridge Nuclear Weapons Lab in America. Fifty-five are considered to be long-lived; 898 are considered to be short-lived but last more than eight days. These nine hundred fifty-three radioactive isotopes are included in this analysis. Nine hundred ninety-three (993) radioactive isotopes are considered dangerous and undergo radioactive decay within eight days; they are not included in this analysis. The radioactive particles are all over the world now.
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. There are 44 American cities reporting above 1,000 CPM this week. Last issue it was only 34 cities. Take precautions.*
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM. 50 CPM is an alert level.

Here’s how you can calculate an estimate of your Total Rad today: Use the reported account of the Cesium 137/134 Beta and Gamma 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*
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: Portland, ME is the most radioactive city in the US, “Recorded,” that is. The combined Beta and Gamma radiation count was 1,838 Counts a Minute, CPM. That dose to exposed people, animals and plants is a devastating amount of radiation to absorb in a short period of time. 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 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. 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)
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."
