Information Black Hole?

Memory Hole?

I've been linking this potential species killer as information was made available.


How about the following?



Writing in Forbes, Jeff McMahon also pointed out what appear to be strategies to minimize public perceptions of the real risks of the Fukushima radiation:8

"Covering the story, I watched the government pursue what appeared to be two strategies to minimize public alarm:

It framed the data with reassurances like this oft-repeated sentence from the EPA: 'The level detected is far below a level of public health concern.' The question, of course, is whose concern.

The EPA seemed to be timing its data releases to avoid media coverage. It released its most alarming data set late on a Friday – data that showed radioactive fallout in the drinking water of more than a dozen U.S. cities."



I call BS on this and here's why,

There is no control. Naturally, there is more radiation in the upper parts of the atmosphere than there is at the surface, what was the radiation levels in the same areas BEFORE the fukushima accident? That is what the problem is with this theory. We all know the natural radiation level at those altitudes is not zero, so what is it naturally? Now fukushima is obviously a mess and any accurate information from the Japanese is not forthcoming, and we know there has been a tremendous amount of radiation released but this post is much a do about nothing without a control.

Do people here remember the BP Gulf Oil spill?

It was supposed to threaten the whole ecosystem and be the greatest environmental disaster of our generation... and no one questions why there was so little evidence of a major oil spill from the beginning of the event?

I hope people would question the media and establishment a little more as well as question some pics with random geiger counter readings. Couldn't Fukushima have been Japan's 9-11 hoax?
...just like '04 Madrid, Spain bombings, '05 in London bombings, '08 Mumbai attacks.... etc etc etc...

9-11 Media Fakery: Did anyone die on 9-11?

Japan has been lying from the very beginning.

“Reality in Fukushima”: Actual conditions within crippled reactors remain unknown — Japan likely unable to cope if there’s another similar accident -Asahi
Title: POINT OF VIEW/ Hirohito Ono: We cannot allow return to nuclear power without proper debate

[...] The actual conditions within the crippled plant’s reactors remain unknown. Work continues to cool the fuel within the reactors, but problems have arisen in how to process the cooling water. There is yet no end in sight for decontaminating areas polluted by radioactive materials. [...]

Since March 11, 2011, Japan has entered a different age. Unlike the time before the Great East Japan Earthquake, Japan has become a nation that possesses a dangerous, crippled nuclear plant.

The nation likely does not have the ability to cope with another accident of a similar scale.

If that is the case, the only alternative will be to reduce the number of nuclear plants as quickly as possible while making safety standards stricter and implementing measures to prepare for the likelihood of another accident.

That is the brutally frank reality Japan now faces. [...]

If only

If only there was a scientist around (like this guy) to apply a little more logic to this story-


The readings are higher. Is it significant?

If they prove to be consistently higher

The Federal government knows, but it must be a secret.

All the Universities get federal funding and information flow can be throttled. NSA provides the blackmail tools.

Free includes debt-free!

And people wonder why...

People in the liberty movement wonder why they are labeled as tin-foil hat wearing fools. Amazingly ignorant posts like this simply provide ammunition to the statists.

If you don't know what you're talking about, keep your mouth shut until you have educated yourself on the subject, or find a friend who does know something about it.

Some ignoramus running around with a out-of-calibration Geiger counter (to the point the sticker is wearing off) pushing buttons randomly to get a number to read on the display tells you just slightly more information than a Scientology e-machine hooked up to a donkey.

Come on people! Get it together! This is not helping.

That's why the scientific method is supposed to remove confirmation bias when done properly. However when you don't even understand what you're measuring, you've already failed. We have to be better and smarter than the rest.

Do some research.

Altitudes of 35,000 ft routinely see high radiation levels as the clouds and atmosphere have not decreased the solar radiation yet. This has absolutely nothing to do with Fukushima - and the government is not hiding the non-existent effects from Fukushima...

You guys believe anything. The idiot with the GM counter should know these things before using the meter.

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

How are the effects from

How are the effects from Fukushima non-existent?

Solution: Something You Can Do Immediately:

What can you do right now to get rid of radiation in your body?

For a few hundred dollars you can detox your body of radiation from Fukishima and even residual radiation from sunburns. At the same time, you can purge your body of chemicals, pesticides, pollution and the residual deposits of both prescription and recreational drugs.

It is called the Purification Rundown. It is a supervised regimen of sauna and elevated levels of certain vitamins. It takes a few short weeks to do it. There are "Purif" centers all around the world. Thousands have done it and reported life-changing results.

The guy doing the readings is FLYING, and CPM can be anything. The thing he needs to measure is RADS per minute, not counts per minute. With CPM you have no idea what radiation he is measuring. Is it Cosmic background radiation? Was it taken during a solar storm, or direct flare hit? Any one of those would put the CPM through the roof, but the RAD's per minute would not be the same as radiation absorbed is a LOT different.

If the guy could tell us what radiation he is measuring, and the RAD's then I would pay more attention. To me it looks to be more towards fear mongering.

Conversion to dose rate
Geiger-Muller counter with dual counts/dose rate display. The dose per count is known for this specific instrument by design and calibration

Count rate does not universally equate to dose rate, and there is no simple universal conversion factor. Any conversions are instrument-specific.

Counts is the number of events detected, but dose rate relates to the amount of ionising energy deposited in the sensor of the radiation detector. The conversion calculation is dependent on the radiation energy levels, the type of radiation being detected and the radiometric characteristic of the detector.

The ion chamber instrument can easily measure dose but cannot measure counts, as it operates as a continuous current instrument. However the geiger counter can measure counts but not the energy of the radiation, so a technique known as energy compensation of the detector tube is used to produce a dose reading. This modifies the tube characteristic so each count resulting from a particular radiation type is equivalent to a specific quantity of deposited dose. Proportional counters and scintillation counters can measure the energy level of each count, so dose can be automatically calculated by the instrument.

Dose rate is a complex subject and more can be found at absorbed dose and equivalent dose.


THANK YOU!! I've been paying


I've been paying attention to radiation since the earthquake in Japan and to be sure, there is some crazy BS on the pro-nuclear power side of things, but when people start posting panic stuff like this (100 CPM = emergency hazmat situation...uh. pretty sure that's RADS not CPM) - it's upsetting. It muddies the water for those of us trying to find balanced, reliable info and gives ammunition to the other extreme side ("Those guys are tinfoil hat-wearing wingnuts").

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info.

Wonder what the ground levels are?
