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.
