U.S. air radiation surges higher

U.S. air radiation surges higher

Air radiation levels surge nationwide according to an EnviroReporter.com analysis of 124 U.S. EPA RadNet monitoring stations. From coast to coast, cancer-causing beta radiation is rising to many times background with the culprit possibly being the ongoing triple meltdowns at Fukushima Japan begun over three years ago.

NATIONWIDE RADIATION REPORT

2014/11/23 at 5:40 pm
Only 39 out of 124 USEPA beta monitors are functional as of this date. That is success rate of just 31.5 percent for America’s front line defense against airborne beta radiation like cesium-134 & 137, strontium-90 and plutonium-239. The failure of this taxpayer-funded program to maintain anything near a success […]

L.A. Air Even Hotter with Radiation

L.A. Air Even Hotter with Radiation

Topping EnviroReporter.com‘s last radiation readings of HEPA filter dust in the western Los Angeles Basin, a 40-day accumulation of dust and debris by three HEPA filter machines at Radiation Station Santa Monica yields the highest air rad readings we’ve taken yet: 7.46 times normal. The California Highway Patrol considers anything 3 times normal radiologically to be a hazmat situation making this detection doubly dangerous.

Highest Radiation in L.A. Air Yet

Highest Radiation in L.A. Air Yet

Now 43 days later, we tested the same HEPA filters in the same environment and setup. This time, as you can see in the video, the dust was a lot hotter. A spot test was ~377% of the previous background. Then we vacuumed out the filters with a HEPA filter Eureka vacuum cleaner and tested the aggregate. The March 6 test of the combined dust came in at a sizzling 668% of background or 6.68 times normal. Since the last testing period, the radiation detected has risen another 130% indicating a continued upward trend.

A Whole HEPA Trouble #2

A Whole HEPA Trouble #2

Proof positive of the need for HEPA filter machines to clean out air impacted by Fukushima multiple meltdowns fallout. The aggregate measurement of the dust and debris of both the Honeywell and Kenmore Plasmawave HEPA filter air cleaners was shocking – 5.38 times normal. As we discuss in the upcoming post “Beta Watch,” these measurements, and indeed most all the measurements at Radiation Station – Santa Monica, are not impacted by so-called “natural” radon progeny being pulled out of the air by these breath-saving machines which suggests that there is an entirely new method of radioactive fallout from Fukushima impacting coastal zones of the United States and Canada, if not eventually all 44 nations on the Pacific Rim.

A Whole HEPA Trouble #1

A Whole HEPA Trouble #1

After 42 days of air filtering at Radiation Station – Santa Monica, we did our periodic cleaning and testing of our Honeywell and Kenmore Plasmawave HEPA filter air cleaners. Taking into account that there was no hot rain and no radon progeny in that rain, this spot check was pretty high. According to a Nevada accident report obtained by EnviroReporter.com, a hazardous material incident’s tripwire is three times background for any subject media, or 300% of normal. This clearly exceeds that. The aggregate testing for the combined dust of the machines was even higher at 538% of normal.

The day the two-month old Occupy Los Angeles camp is evicted from City Hall, EnviroReporter.com tests three months worth of HEPA filter-cleaned air in an historic downtown Los Angeles building with central air. Much to our surprise, the HEPA filter dust tests 364% of normal, hotter than expected.

Radioactive Los Angeles Air 11-16-11

Radioactive Los Angeles Air 11-16-11

Disturbing readings from one of Radiation Station Central’s HEPA filters after just 30 days of use: 308% of normal background higher. Alpha and beta radiation captured by the filter can be attributed to the triple Fukushima Japan meltdowns, melt-throughs and melt-outs and the decision to begin burning 550,000 tons of radioactive debris in Tokyo from October to March, sending a double dose of radioactive fallout on the Jet Stream over the Pacific to land on America, Canada and beyond. Finding this high a level of radiation is considered dangerous by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Ingested alpha particles can be up to 1,000 times more dangerous than their beta and gamma counterparts.

2 HEPA Filters Aggregate - October 3, 2011

2 HEPA Filters Aggregate – October 3, 2011

After just 53 days of air cleaning at Radiation Station in Santa Monica, California, two HEPA filters’ dust aggregate comes in at a worrisome 216.0% of background higher than normal. Even in drier climes like Southern California, which hasn’t been hit (yet) by jet stream-carried storms suffused with radioactive fallout from the triple Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns in Japan, there is measurable radiation in dust particulates breathed by millions in the Greater Los Angeles area.

HEPA Filters – August 11, 2011

Ten minute interior averages of HEPA filters’ aggregate from 7/19/11 after 23 days of use. All readings are ABOVE background by a significant amount showing that even in sunny Southern California, spared the hot rains rolling across the country and Canada on the jet stream, that substantial radiation is in the air penetrating structures.

HEPA Filter – July 19, 2011

Only 24 days since last testing and cleaning the Honeywell HEPA filter, the particulate pile still comes in at a whopping 79% over background. This is of special note because the only precipitation at Radiation Station during those three weeks was June Gloom. We’ve picked up heightened radiation in June Gloom precipitate before but the […]

Sunny Southern California has been the bulls eye for Fukushima meltdowns fallout and radiation contamination with more Cesium-137 impacting L.A. more than anywhere else in the U.S. after the disaster began March 11, 2011. Now with levels of radiation hammering the West Coast with levels that dwarf Chernobyl’s 1986 meltdown, the danger of Uranium-filled “buckyballs” threatens to irradiate the West Coast turning the seashore a silent unseen cesspool of radioactive goo. This abridged and updated version of Beta Watch, with new data, information and interviews was so shocking that even EnviroReporter‘s favorite print editors were dumbstruck by The Endless Bummer.
