Spike in radiation levels for West Coast? “Abnormal” readings on 8 of 18 EPA monitors for California, Oregon, Washington — Devices now “undergoing quality review”

Some Radiation-Tracking Air Monitors May Not Be Working Properly, EPA Says, Bloomberg, March 21, 2011 at 5:11 pm EDT:

Eight of 18 air monitors in California, Oregon and Washington state that track radiation from Japan’s nuclear reactors are “undergoing quality review,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s website. …

“What we are seeing is not a problem,” [Ronald Fraass, director of the EPA’s National Air and Radiation Environmental Laboratory in Montgomery, Alabama] said today in a telephone interview. …

Monitors are listed as undergoing review if they report an abnormal reading, Fraass said. …

An abnormality might mean that the monitor isn’t working correctly, or the device measured a spike in radiation levels attributable to an environmental change, Fraass said. …

    So if the reading is “abnormal”, it’s the monitor’s fault. It has nothing to do with radiation from Fukushima. And Mr. Fraass of the EPA, I disagree with your statement that this isn’t a problem. Also, Mr. Fraass, if no one has told you this yet, you are the last 3 letters of your name.

    The readings I were seeing were really low compared to other areas of the country ?
    The fact that the lower parts of CA. is were I was informed the winds would get to first ! The maps and readings I am using #’s do not match, quite a difference.

    All off line in Fl. ???

    I think they went Off The Charts and they are going to hide the numbers !

    Just like they would not release the number of the VOC’s in the gulf after a few days of readings. Let everyone breath the crap instead of warning people !

    911 rescuers/workers all got sick after EPA said the air was good !

  • xdrfox

    All the ones listed on the site are still there, Never 8 more then showing on this map now ??

  • WindorSolarPlease

    I would love to hear from the people who have their own equipment. Wonder what their readings are?

  • xdrfox

    They will surface on the web, utube and blogs…

    You know when I did service in S.E. Asia in the late 60’s, I was at a base station with a TV and the president L.B.J. came on to talk : saying to the American people that we would and are not going/having troops into Cambodia,-Laos, I knew the lies this country would stoop too ! Then left millions to die that put their faith in the US. See the movie “The Killing Fields”.
    How could we come home from war and live a average life ?
    I love the Asia people, nough said ! hiccup !

    Hi, here are two non-government monitoring networks that I know:

    Hi Kapek,

  • Ionizing radiation can break molecules, at a cellular level, causing unpredictable chemical reactions.

    Think of vibrations breaking glass, that is what happens at a cellular level, in your body, from ionizing radiation.

    Ionizing radiation is insidious, these large subatomic particles travel until they are stopped.

    Your skin can easily stop them. So does the soil, the trees, the food crops and our animals.

    Once you ingest or inhale even very low levels of radioactive particles the Petkau Effect immediately starts potentially lethal tissue ionization.

    The phenomenon of the Petkau Effect basically means that you are ionizing or irradiating yourself continuously from the inside out.

    This insidious burning at your molecular level will impair your body long before there is a diagnosable disease.

    The 24 hr a day radiation onslaught will continue until stopped. It doesn’t take Rad monitors to realize that high level, long term exposure is far worse than the long term, low levels that we are already having.

    Why waste our time checking readings. I assumed and prepared for the worst on March 18 and since then have been taking aggressive protective action for myself, animals & soils.

    Following the actual minute by minute readings will only cause “whip lash” greater stress to the body and distract from taking care of myself.

    If you’re not already taking protective steps, what are you waiting for?

    I live where I can see miles and miles of open prairie and sky. I watch chemtrails all day long building or breaking up the clouds as “they” see fit.
    The chems rain down with from the thinned down one altitude “precipitation” area.It is grey and beige and ultimately the whole sky becomes a beige haze.
    My teeth taste like metal..my eyes burn and after a walk outside, my skin burns and prickles..I have a sinus infection and get nosebleeds.
    So much for personal experience..
    PS. I like Asia folks too…..

    You gotta know the top brass are running around like chickens with their heads cut off! LOL

      Non of the last was in their plans, but will try to find a way to have it work for their benefit if possible, but when that wind kicks back and falls on a part of the Elites plans for their future, puts a big hiccup in it ! And we know sh*t rolls downhill to the brass !

  • EPA’s real purpose appears to be the stage-management of large-scale death.

    During a global nuclear “event” – the numbers are vital.
