The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s draft EPA “Protective Action Guide” (PAG), posted on its website April 15, allows hundreds to thousands of times more radiation in disasters than the agency had previously allowed. Americans have until Monday, July 15 to even though the EPA made the new PAG effective immediately. According to EPA’s own data, the new PAGs will result in exponentially higher radiation-induced fatal cancers than the current goal of one in ten thousand to one in a million Americans. In various exposure scenarios listed in the report, depending on which radionuclide, the resultant cancer rates would claim several out of ten, one in eight, one in six – even as low as one in 1.7.
The federal United States Environmental Protection Agency deploys radiation air monitors in every US state (except South Carolina and Wyoming), Puerto Rico and Washington D.C.. Gamma data can easily be found on the EPA RadNet Data website. For beta, however, the US EPA states that “near real-time beta monitoring results frequently do not pass quality [...]
Hundreds of food and drink radiation tests from ten countries are conducted and compiled by Radiation Station Sunshine Coast Australia’s Peter Daley. This is the single most comprehensive collection of samples and results in English that exist. Radiation Food Lab shows what’s hot and what’s not in this growing and dynamic study of consumables possible impacted by fallout from the ongoing triple meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi, Japan.

EnviroReporter.com journeys back to the same Japanese store in Los Angeles to purchase the same brand and make of Nori seaweed it had bought last August. The green sheets of seaweed, prized for its nutty, crispy flavor by hipsters and locals alike, comes in at double background radiation, with a substantial part of that ionization coming from alpha radiation which is 60 to 1,000 times more dangerous than beta and gamma radiation because of its lethality if ingested or inhaled. The eight-month old Nori seaweed bought last year still radiates far above background but loses some of its punch strongly suggesting the presence of medium and long-lived radionuclides like cesium-137 and the lethal brew captured in uranium-60 “buckyballs.” Worse still is the fact that the gelling substances in seaweed, 90% of which is grown in the Far East, are used in toothpaste, milk shakes, beer, desserts and all manner of food and drink products that are made with alginate and carrageenan. Hot seaweed sold in 49 Japanese and Japanese-American stores in Southern California as well as over 900 stores.
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.
Shocking new radiation readings from the old Rocketdyne Santa Susana Field Laboratory show cesium-137 at nearly 9,300 times normal background levels along with a witches’ brew of deadly radionuclides on “The Hill.” Worse yet, the U.S. EPA has bait and switched the radiation background numbers threatening an agreement to clean the radioactive site back to its normal condition. Sly maneuver fools legislator and nuclear watchdogs.

KTLA News – March 16, 2011
KTLA News breaks the story of Radiation Station and creates special link on the television station’s website to hook people up 24/7 coverage of radiation readings in the Los Angeles Basin. Over 1,279,831 have done just that as of May 17, 2011.
We’ve conducted more than 3,528 radiation readings of air, water, rain, food, drink and other media since Radiation Station went online until the time of this writing, March 1, 2014. We have tested numerous items, substances and sites to determine if Fukushima fallout has impacted them. Those special in-situ multi-media tests, many with video documentation, [...]
As the world lurches to a precipice with the multiple meltdowns at Fukushima, thousands of Americans are frantic to find the truth about the disaster. Nearly 700,000 have come to EnviroReporter.com‘s Radiation Station in just a week to watch live Los Angeles basin readings and exchange information sparked by an impending disaster.
EnviroReporter.com‘s “Radiation Station” will go online tomorrow. We will be able to show, in live time, just what the radiation readings are in Santa Monica which will give some indication of what the Los Angeles Basin is going to be exposed to since Santa Monica is upwind of most of the basin.

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. An EnviroReporter.com exclusive.

An 11-month EnviroReporter.com investigation with over 1,500 Fukushima fallout tests, a new UC Davis report about uranium-filled “buckeyballs” and proof that sea mist carries radiation inland for hundreds of miles all add up to one thing: it’s going to be a long hot Endless Bummer at the beach this year. Bay Watch has just turned into Beta Watch.
Winter storm Boreas left more than snow-capped peaks and rain-drenched salt flats in Death Valley National Park over the weekend as it continues its deadly march across the nation. The rain in the California national park far exceeded normal radiation levels as detected by EnviroReporter.com in multiple tests across the huge desert landscape.
Removing the terrorist threats to the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station exposed by the Black Swan SONGS series can specifically strengthen this vulnerable nuclear installation. The Marine Corps Camp Pendleton commander could take decisive action after verifying with his own eyes the findings of this series. He is responsible for the safety of everything in the base perimeter and that presumably includes SONGS. Protecting San Onofre protects the Marines and their base which should be all the justification needed for the brigadier general to act. That is the purpose of this series. With SONGS-specific vulnerabilities exposed, we can, and must, prevent black swan events at SONGS and other nuclear reactors and SFPs across the country.
Heavy weaponry, including rocket launchers that could be used to attack San Onofre, is awash on both sides of the U.S. and Mexico border with most of the dangerous material originating in the United States. Drug cartels have sought out American soldiers to recruit as hitmen with some success. In addition to the rocket propelled missile threat against San Onofre, EnviroReporter.com has discovered that the SONGS dry cask spent nuclear fuel facility, amazingly not in the highly secure zone like the one in which the reactors are located, is vulnerable to terrorist attack on foot. This second major vulnerability could cause a catastrophic disaster should terrorists hired by Middle East adversaries of this country manage to penetrate the lightly defended dry cask area of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
