Welcome to our continuing Radiation Conversation II. It succeeds Radiation Conversation I with its 2,777 informative and lively comments that became so numerous and lengthy that the page slowed loading considerably. Comments from April 1. 2014 to present have been moved here to Radiation Conversation II.
Radiation Conversation I began September 19, 2011 after we had to continue this forum in a new post after 2,433 comments posted on EnviroReporter.com’s Radiation Station which began March 16, 2011.

It is amazing to look at the information exposed by EnviroReporter.com since beginning Radiation Conversation I over two and a half years ago. It is no wonder that over three million people have visited EnvirorReporter.com and its 24-7 streaming Radiation Santa Monica California since 2011 alone. There is no website on the Internet like it with the stories that many people care about most along the facts to back them up.
March 15, 2015: Since exactly four years ago on March 15, 2011, just four days after the triple meltdowns at Fukushimi Dai-ichi Japan began, EnviroReporter.com has produced more than 7,322 special tests and original reports including 2,819 measurements and analyses from nine affiliated Radiation Stations and 4,503 samples and radiation experiments from Radiation Station Santa Monica California. EnviroReporter.com has over 1,890,968 readers and 1,572,073 viewers along with the 21,130 people who have seen Radiation Station Glendale California‘s continuous online streaming. Over 190,172 viewers have watched 90 original videos on our YouTube channel and we’ve received tens of thousands of Facebook ‘likes’ for our site, investigations and Facebook channel. Thank you for your support as we celebrate these milestones on the Ides of March.
Since the Fukushima Daiichi triple meltdowns began March 11, 2011, Collins and Duffield have taken thousands of radiation tests of air, water, rain, snow, food, drink and jet cabin air at altitude in 13 states across America as well as on-the-road investigations in over a dozen states. Nine radiation stations in the United States and Australia also provide thousands of data, forecasts and original testing. Thousands of food and drink tests in 17 countries, the European Union and the Pacific Ocean are found in Radiation Food Lab, the most comprehensive data collection in the world. RadNet Air Monitoring organizes into user-friendly organization the U.S. EPA’s 123-city radiation station beta and gamma monitors across America, updated daily.
The third anniversary of the Fukushima meltdowns March 11, 2014 saw Collins and Duffield publish Fukushima – The Perfect Crime? which blew the lid off of how extensive the triple meltdowns’ radiation contamination is in the Pacific Ocean and across North America. The exposé also exposed mainstream and alternative media’s lockstep denial of the disaster’s effects as well as show how even concerns covering the crisis have repeatedly undermined their credibility which has bolstered so-called ‘meltdown deniers.’
Hard-nosed journalism backed up by evidence is also the hallmark of the first five parts of the ongoing “Boeing’s Meltdown Makeover” series which began in December 2012. The 33,000-word investigation revealed Boeing’s massive “greenwashing” campaign run by a former LA Times reporter turned PR flack, as well as the company’s successful “astroturfing” of the community. The exposé also demonstrated the collusion of state regulatory agencies to undermine the community and portray the Santa Susana Field Laboratory as already clean enough for a park when massive amounts of radiation, chemicals and other toxins remain.
Furthering this investigation in March 2014, and throughout 2014, is EnviroReporter.com‘s China Syndrome Town. The four part series exposes a new twist on these plots that would keep the Santa Susana Field Laboratory radioactive and chemically contaminated, saving the polluters hundreds of millions. If lab owner Boeing, government agencies, and astroturfers are successful, the toxic land could become Glow in the Dark Park or a new Chumash gambling casino.
Legacy media’s valuable contributions to the public good are rapidly diminishing in relation to the rise of New Media, as EnviroReporter.com shows. Our 2013 investigative series Black Swan Songs, which uncovers the woeful state of America’s nuclear installations’ bulwark against terrorism, illustrates the power of really drilling down into a topic and breaking important news that affects national security. The 23,000-word, five-part series is unequaled in its revealing the challenges of keeping nuclear reactors and spent fuel rods safe from clearly identified threats. Not content to just expose the problems of nuclear fuel safety, EnviroReporter.com also provided the security solutions freely and in detail.
One of the best examples of the quality and breadth of EnviroReporter.com‘s investigative journalism is our ability to act nimbly in the field to capture stories we weren’t expecting. Our feature showing massive amounts of radiation in Death Valley rains in November 2013 is an excellent example of how we are leaders in environmental investigative journalism which thrives at EnviroReporter.com.
Radiation Conversation II is the place for you to talk about any and all of the issues covered by EnviroReporter.com, as well as ones we haven’t yet. No other online news organization has the kind of smart and concerned commenters that we do.
You make it happen. Welcome!
