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.
Questionable new EPA soil survey detects radiation thousands of times over cleanup triggers

Ventura County Reporter – March 22, 2012
More than half a century since several partial meltdowns at the former Rocketdyne complex in eastern Ventura County, astronomical amounts of radiation are still being unearthed at the site, according to a new U.S. Environmental [...]
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.
Rad News Digest which goes back to Day 1 of the Fukushima triple meltdowns and keeps us current going into Year 3 of this unprecedented disaster.
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.
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.

FUKUSHIMA MELTDOWNS & FALLOUT IN AMERICA
Michael Collins Radiation Update May 13, 2013: Hard charging special hour show with breaking news that NRC must hold full public judicial-like hearing on SONGS restart; top DTSC honcho’s head roles for her regulating companies she has stock in; Boeing Meltdown Makeover continues with former Times reporter Gary [...]
Los Angeles rain comes in at a sizzling 415% of normal, far higher than what triggers a radiation hazmat incident for the California Highway Patrol.
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.
Over 2,773 Fukushima-specific radiation tests from March 15, 2011 to May 11, 2013 and counting.
Note that none of our readings at Radiation Station Santa Monica are impacted by radon progeny as we discuss in Beta Watch.

Even the multiple meltdowns and melt-throughs in Japan at the worst nuclear reactor disaster in history can’t crimp the style of the Second Annual Toxies Red Carpet Awards for Bad Actor Chemicals taking place at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood California June 16, 2011 at 4 pm and is also streaming live on the Toxies website. This reporter’s favorite Toxie remains the silver siren with rocket booster boots named Perchlorate which has impacted water supplies in 43 states including California where millions drink this toxic rocket fuel oxidizer. Perchlorate the foxy Toxie redefines what it means to be bad.
EnviroReporter.com celebrates its Five Year Anniversary by looking at the beginnings of this investigative reporting and where its headed as we confront the reality of multiple meltdowns an ocean away and a government that assures the public there is no chance for radioactive exposure. Despite the grim outlook, miracles do happen, and the accomplishments of this website, totally $6 billion in saved land because of toxic contamination issues.

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.
Check out our testing of two Hepa filters’ dust on May 13, 2011. All tests are over background.
We’ve conducted more than 2,773 radiation readings since Radiation Station went online until the time of this writing, May 11, 2013. 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, will continue to be posted here regularly as we [...]
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.
Fukushima reactors teeter on the brink of full meltdown as huge spent fuel rods burn. Californians can’t help but think about the possibility of nuclear fallout. And for good reason. The State dismisses even the possibility that fallout could reach our shores hence no need to pre-distribute life-saving KI pills that fight radioactive iodine in the airborne goo. On top of that, no readily-accessible network of static ground-based Geiger counters exists making it increasingly possible that LA could suffer a “soft disaster” and not even know that the Hot Zone had landed on top of it.
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.
EnviroReporter.com has confirmed through two independent sources that signing of final agreements between the California EPA’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the Department of Energy (DOE) and NASA for the cleanup of the former Santa Susana Field Laboratory site in Simi Valley will happen later today.
