EPA Radnet Data for Tucscon, AZ
[Editor's Note: I provide this graph for the sake of completeness. I find it suspicious that it shows relatively high activity prior to the 3-11 earthquake, and not as high as charts for Yuma, AZ which generally spike twice as high. The EPA has been caught rejiggering and recalibrating its data, as noted in RadNet or SadNet? The EPA’s Failed Radiation Detection System, infiniteunknown.net, April 4, 2011. Despite all this, beta spikes to 300 are certainly worth taking seriously, assuming the underlying reality is at least this much.

2011-04-17 to 23 [Editor's Note, Reactors in Meltdown As Private Forecasts Show 100x Higher Radiation (PDF), dated 20 May 2011 by zeolite-remedies.com, applies to the 17-23 April time frame:]
Post-Dated “Forecast” Images Show Same High Levels
In the past two days since the public forecasts from Norway were stopped, there have been numerous different forecast images appearing in the obscure folder of the “zardoz” server. These have included a number of animated forecasts showing a “simulation” date of May 9 (03:00 UTC) yet giving “forecast” images for the week of April 18–24 (inclusive). Thus, some newly appearing “forecasts” are post-dated (or dated after the fact) by approximately three weeks relative to
the actual time being shown (given that today is May 14), which reveals that someone is examining data relative to fallout of radioactive poisons from that week in April. It also reveals that the models being used show “forecast” (for the past?!) levels of radiation that are in fact more than 100 times greater than the public Norwegian forecasts ever showed. If these post-dated “forecast” images that are still mysteriously appearing in an obscure folder of a little known server in Norway are not the real and best estimates of the radioactive fallout that has been flowing around the northern hemisphere due to this terrible nuclear catastrophe, then what are they? In addition, who is generating these forecasts even after the public forecasts have been stopped and for what purpose?...
Now let us look at five example “forecast” images from five days during the week of April 18–24. These images all show levels of radioactive iodine-131 at least 100 times greater than the public images for the same times. [Editor's Note: See comparison charts above in the North America section].

2011-04-17 to 23 Reactors in Meltdown As Private Forecasts Show 100x Higher Radiation (PDF), by zeolite-remedies.com, 20 May 2011 which applies to the 17-23 April time frame:
These private forecasts tell a terrible story, with each one consistently showing levels of radioactive iodine-131 at least 100 times higher than the public forecasts ever showed. In the first image, levels of iodine-131 exceed 400 bq/m2 for a large part of the eastern US, while the public image shows no levels of radioactivity for the same area!
A day later, the second image shows this poisonous radioactive “cloud” (that was covering the eastern USA the day prior) moving out into the Atlantic Ocean as a narrow “cloud” ofradioactive iodine-131 (levels exceeding 400 bq/m2) simultaneously moves on to the west coast. Meanwhile, the public forecast shows no levels of radioactivity in the eastern USA, with levels no more than 5 bq/m2 being shown near the coast of California!
Thirdly, we see a “cloud” of poisonous iodine-131 covering a huge area of north-western America, including Oregon and Washington states in the USA as well as much of B.C. (and more) in Canada. Once again, there is barely a hint of the slightest radioactive iodine-131 on the public forecast, while the private forecast shows large areas with radioactive iodine-131 clearly in excess of 400 bq/m2!
Another day later, it is seen that this radioactive “cloud” of poisonous iodine-131 is still covering a huge area of northwestern America, while another dense-looking “cloud” of radiation appears to spearhead across the Pacific Ocean towards the US west coast. One day and 15 hours later, that very same “cloud” is shown moving on to the west coast with levels of radioactive iodine-131 that are once again clearly in excess of 400 bq/m2, yet the public forecast once more shows almost no radioactive iodine-131 whatsoever (with levels of about 5 bq/m2 in only a tiny area).
Meltdowns Confirmed as Disaster Worsens
Here is a sample of quotes from news reports over the past week that give an extremely clear picture of the incredibly dire
situation that we are all now in relative to the out-of-control nuclear reactors [emphasis added throughout]:
• Last Sunday it was revealed: “The first map of ground surface contamination within 80 kilometers of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant shows radiation levels higher in some municipalities than those in the mandatory relocation zone around the Chernobyl plant.” [4]
• On the same day: “Tokyo Electric reported a sharp rise in temperature at the nearby Reactor 3. It was at 202 degrees Celcius early Sunday, up 40 degrees in less than a day.” [5]
• Also on Sunday, TEPCO and the Japanese government released a joint statement saying: “an unusual amount of smoke that billowed from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power reactor on Saturday night was nothing to be concerned about.” [6] — Do you believe one word of this after all the proven lies from the past two months?!
• Then on Monday this is reported: “Tetsuo Matsui at the University of Tokyo, says the limited data from Fukushima indicates that nuclear chain reactions must have reignited at Fuksuhima up to 12 days after the accident.” [7]
• Monday also sees the report of an e-mail from a Russian nuclear physicist who is an expert on radioactive releases, who wrote: “About Japan: the problem is that the reactor uses ‘dirty’ fuel. It is a combination of plutonium and uranium (MOX). I suspect that the old fuel rods have bean spread out due to the explosion and the surrounding area is contaminated with plutonium which means you can never return to this place again. It is like a new Tchernobyl. Personally, I am not surprised that the authority has not informed people about this.” [8]
• Also on Monday the cessation of testing for radioactivity in the USA and Canada was further reported on: “some critics felt the move was premature … ‘Throughout this and other radiation accidents it has always turned out that more radiation was involved than we initially thought,’ said Ira Helfand, a co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility …” [9]
• On Tuesday, TEPCO said: “the temperature of the plant’s Number 3 reactor has been rising this month, and that work to pump water to cool the reactor may be insufficient.” [10]
• Also from Tuesday: “tests yielded a maximum of 700 millisieverts per hour, thus workers can only stay in the vicinity for around 20 minutes. … [TEPCO] will continue checking the levels but is worried that it may need to change plans depending on the results.” [11]
• Extreme levels of radioactivity were also reported on Tuesday: “140,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium-134 per cubic centimeter, 150,000 becquerels of cesium-137, and 11,000 becquerels of iodine-n 131.” [12] — These levels of iodine-131 are one million times higher [13] than they should be during normal operation!
• Further criticism of the EPA for halting their testing of radioactive levels was also reported on Tuesday: “With the Japanese nuclear situation still out of control and expected to continue that way for months and with elevated radioactivity continuing to show up in the U.S., it is inexplicable that EPA would shut down its Fukushima radiation monitoring effort”. [14]
With the disaster now worsening significantly by the day a story finally appeared in the USA on Wednesday in one small (and brave) publication, namely San Diego’s East County Magazine [emphasis added throughout]:
Several of our readers have asked for updates on the crisis at the Fukushima, Japan nuclear reactors. I expected that since the story seems to have fallen off the radar of most major media, the situation might have stabilized.
The truth is quite the opposite. The best site I found with reliable updates is Energy News, a site dedicated to reporting the Fukushima crisis with links to top news stories and videos from reputable news agencies worldwide. High radiation levels have been found consistently outside the official exclusion zone. Yesterday’s headlines alone make clear that a resolution is nowhere in[sight.] [15]
Continuing on with the available news from the past week, here are some more telling quotes about what isreally going on with this crisis:
• On Wednesday evening, the Norwegian Institute for Air Research suddenly stopped their own public forecast service relative to radioactive fallout from Japan, initially displaying only this terse statement on their web site:
“Thank you for your interest in the FLEXPART products for Fukushima. The Forecast system is no longer running.” [16]
• However, they then updated this page on Friday with the following statement: “We have discontinued our Flexpart forecast of the atmospheric dispersal of radionucleides from Fukushima. This due to the fact that we do not have access to reliable release rates reflecting the current situation at the plant to be used as input to our simulations. It is likely that the release of radioactive material is significantly reduced compared to the initial period, and that levels no longer pose a health risk at distance from the plant.” [17] — If this is so, why do forecasts continue appearing in an obscure folder of their server showing levels more than 100 times greater than the public forecasts ever showed?!
• Meanwhile, members of the public keeping an eye on the danger-level of the situation (for all in the northern hemisphere) collected numerous images from Wednesday through Friday (courtesy of the official Fukushima webcam) showing smoke/steam pouring from reactors 2, 3 and 4 [18] [19] [20] (smoke/steam that is incredibly radioactive, of course) — “where there is smoke, there is fire” and in this case the “fire” is multiple out-of-control nuclear reactors in meltdown!
• On Thursday, even Gizmodo (the 373rd most trafficked website in the USA) reported: “It’s Official: Fukushima Was Hit With a Full-Blown Nuclear Meltdown” — Later, the headline was changed to “It’s Official: Fukushima Was Hit With a Nuclear Meltdown” [21] in an obvious attempt to make the crisis sound less serious.
• Also on Thursday the Associated Press released an article that stated: “One of the reactors at Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant has been damaged more severely than originally thought, officials said Thursday — a serious setback for efforts to stabilize the radiation-leaking complex.” [22]
• The same day, the Telegraph in the UK picked up the story: “One of the reactors at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi power plant did suffer a nuclear meltdown, Japanese officials admitted for the first time today, describing a pool of molten fuel at the bottom of the reactor’s containment vessel.” [23]
• Again on Thursday the following is reported: “water may be leaking from a hole in the No.1 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, causing a sharp drop in the water level inside the reactor. … it seems parts of the fuel rods have melted and accumulated at the bottom of the reactor.” [24]
• In addition, this was said: “considering the situation with the No. 1 reactor, the water level data from reactors 2 and 3 may not be credible.” [25] — What (or who) is actually not credible is TEPCO, who have evidently been lying and doing their best to obfuscate the truth every day since this disaster began!
• Friday saw the Independent in the UK release a story saying: “Observers fear that Reactor 3, which contains MOX plutonium fuel, may have also suffered a meltdown, and the situation inside Reactor 2 is still shrouded in mystery. ‘The situation is clearly far more serious than previously reported, and could escalate rapidly if the lava melts through the reactor vessel,’ warned Jan Beránek of Greenpeace.” [26]
• Also on Friday it was reported: “Real severe problem cooling Unit No. 3 reactor — Hydrogen explosion possible”. [27]
• In relation to the water levels inside reactors 2 and 3 another article said: “The numbers the gauges are currently showing are not very trustworthy.” [28] — Once again, we know who is actually not trustworthy here and any kind of “newspeak” cannot hide this fact.
• Saturday (Japan time) brought this news: “A robot has detected highly dangerous levels of radiation in the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant’s No. 3 reactor building”. [29]
• Also, it is reported: “TEPCO announced that it has measured high levels of radioactive material exceeding 1000 mSv per hour” [30] — Approximately 4–5 hours of exposure to this level of radiation (one Sievert per hour) is sufficient to cause death from radioactive poisoning (in most cases), with even a single hour of exposure (one Sievert) being known to increase the cancer risk by anywhere from 5-50%!
• Finally, this damning evidence is revealed: “[TEPCO] concealed data showing spikes in radiation levels at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March, one day before a hydrogen explosion injured seven workers.
… levels were well above the upper limit of 250 millisieverts for an entire year under the plant’s safety standards for workers. But the workers who were trying to bring the situation under control at the plant were not informed of the levels.” [31] — Further damning proof of the criminal and genocidal culpability of the corporation that is significantly responsible for the plague of radiation currently flowing around the world!
Back on Friday, the release of a very telling article makes the seriousness of this disaster completely clear [emphasis added throughout]:
Rod Marining is not taking any chances. The cofounder of Greenpeace International and part-time Sunshine coast resident was trained in B.C. on radiation and its effects through Greenpeace. He is also a director and member of the committee, Better Radiation Testing in B.C.
“No radiation is safe,” he said. “Once you start dealing with radiation you’re going to see increases in cancer, birth defects … it will attack your immune system and start to wreak havoc.” [31]
Rod Marining and his family have in fact left the west coast entirely due to concerns over the radioactive fallout. All who are also on the west coast (as well as in the western half of the USA and even north America altogether) would do well to heed these words. Each of us must gain a real appreciation of the life-threatening nature of these highly poisonous contaminants if we are to take the necessary steps to protect ourselves, our families, and our local communities from the
fallout of this terrible catastrophe.

"The radiation fallout sample was taken via a paper towel wipe of the hood and windshield of my SUV. The sample maxed out at 0.100 mR/hr, roughly 10x background radiation. The water droplets absorbed in the towel tended to vary in their radioactivity. The radionuclides appeared less drawn to particulate than in samples from previous days. Concurrently, the level of radioactivity in this sample was mostly a function of the quantity of water absorbed in the towel. Given that this was the third strong storm of the day, the potential of Radon Daughter washout is significantly reduced."

2011-04-23 Japan admits daily radioactive release from Fukushima at 154 trillion Becquerels, many times higher than previously announced — Nuclear commission blames calculation error, enenews.com, Fukushima I Nuke Plant: 154 Terabecquerels Per Day, Every Day of radioactive iodine and cesium still spewing out of the plant, Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission now admits.
[...] From Yomiuri Shimbun (9:15PM JST 4/23/2011):
The Nuclear Safety Commission under the Prime Minister’s Office disclosed on April 23 that the amount of radioactive materials being released from the TEPCO Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant was 154 terabecquerels per day (1 tera is 1 trillion) as late as April 5 when the amount being released was considered stabilized.
On April 5, the estimated amount of radioactive materials released from Fukushima I Nuke Plant was 0.69 terabecquerels/hour for iodine-131 and 0.14 terabecquerels/hour for cesium-137. When the numbers were recalculated according to the INES method (converting cesium amount into iodine equivalent), the amount released turned out to be 6.4 terabecquerels/hour (which was 154 terabecquerels per day. Previously, the Nuclear Safety Commission had simply added the numbers for iodine-131 and cesium-137, and announced it was less than 1 terrabecquerel per hour.
