Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring & Research Center, Mar. 5, 2014 (emphasis added): Station A (pre-HEPA) in the morning following the event (2/15/14) showed high levels of radioactivity consisting of 1,365 Bq/m3 of Americium (241Am) and 672 Bq/m3 of Plutonium (239+240Pu). Twenty-four hours following the event (11:30pm Saturday 2/15/14), another filter sample showed much lower levels of radioactivity, measuring 130 Bq/m3 of 241Am and 17 Bq/m3 of 239+240Pu. [...] It is important to note that while very high levels of radioactivity were measured immediately following the 2/14/14 radiation detection event, these values are reflective of what was measured prior to going through the HEPA filtration system [...] Station B (post-HEPA) in the afternoon of Tuesday (2/18/14). Analysis of this filter showed a moderate amount of radioactivity measuring 1.81 Bq/m3 of 241Am and 0.224 Bq/m3 of 239+240Pu. [...] it is evident that a moderate amount of radioactive isotopes were released into the air from the WIPP exhaust shaft [...] CEMRC scientists are preparing to collect soil and surface water samples [...]

SimplyInfo, Mar. 5, 2014: What is still unknown is the total of the release itself. [...] DOE claims that the brief release of plutonium to the environment happened through the normal exhaust system the brief moment before the HEPA filter kicked in.

AP, Mar. 6, 2014: [...] officials emphasized that all radiation readings at the site have been at low levels, and it would be too soon to speculate about any potential health effects.

Carlsbad Current Argus, Mar. 5, 2014: Employees [...] can relax. [The Dept. of Energy said] the employees are unlikely to experience any adverse health effects. [...] plutonium and americium isotopes continue to linger underground. [...] “What the data tells me is that there was an initial puff of radioactive dust and now the air in the underground is still kicking up the dust and transporting the radioactive particles,” Hardy said. “We still have a ways to go and at least we’re going in the right direction. The HEPA filters appear to be catching the bulk of it.”

Albuquerque Journal, Guest Column, Mar. 6, 2014: WIPP release story doesn’t add up [...] I also support southern New Mexico’s quest to be the nuclear processing economy of the country, cradle and grave. [...] The recent accident at [WIPP] is unbelievable to me. Nearly 20 years ago I went to WIPP, rode the elevator down, saw the tunnels [...] Transuranic waste, the exclusive purview of WIPP [...] is classified as a subset of Low Level waste, but it contains things that are far more radioactive than anything classified as High Level Waste. [...] I want to hear what really happened down there. WIPP was envisioned and engineered to never have a release for 10,000 years. [...] I remember who I thought were the hysterical ones testifying to the endless public panels before WIPP opened. One read into the record a long scenario with specific chemicals leeching together, fire and the resulting black smoke belching from the horizon. That person described in great detail the underground circumstances leading up to the release that nobody thought would ever happen. That person, whoever it was, was kind of old back then, and I wonder if he’s alive to see it. I’m now thinking he may get to say, “I told you so.”

  • "…scientists are preparing to collect soil and surface water samples in the vicinity of the WIPP facility." – CEMRC

    The event occurred on 2/14/14.

    How long does it take to 'prepare' to take soil and water samples?

    Q: Shouldn't testing of these things be done immediately without question?
    A: Of course it should.

    We're now going on 3 weeks.

    Once the samples are finally taken, then we get to wait for the results that inevitably never seem to come in a timely manner. Sometimes results are released, but then a year or two later they admit they lied or were mistaken in their initial readings, so of course, more testing may be needed. ;)

      I still believe the beginning was on February 5th with the truck fire. Americium and Plutonium would diminish if it was not reported until February 14th. Therefore, not such a large release. Naturally so little truth is told that everything is a guess.

    ALERT! Airborne Cesium 137 Was Detected At WIPP Facility: Sign of SIGNIFICANT UNDERGROUND DAMAGE

        http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2013_0708/The-Future-of-Plutonium-Disposition

        It's basically an article describing some of the politics and costs of the plutonium management agreement between the US and Russia and their respective policies toward that end. This seems to include both civilian and defense PU. Both countries have interest in using this a MOX, the Russians in particular in their current and developing fast breeder reactors. Part of the policy here in 'immobilization', which is what I imagine is what might be happening at WIPP if any of the waste from Savannah River is different than just the low level waste most thought they were supporting for internment at the site when I lived there. Certainly, nothing that I heard in those discussion was anything of the 'cannisters' mentioned in the above comment. There is no metion or picture of such in the article, but there is a picture of a proposed 'can-in-a-cannister' which is a welded structure which contains immobilized PU surrounded by highly contaminated radioactive waste that seems designed to kill anything trying to access the PU before that access happens. That makes some sense, but one does wonder how well these would survive tons of material falling in on them…The article itself is well worth the read, and I've added the site itself to my list of worthwhile informational links.

    The Salt Mine Solution
    BY MATT PALMQUIST • April 16, 2009 • 6:11 PM
    "Here, a half-mile below the southern New Mexico desert, we are entering the only operating deep geologic nuclear waste disposal site in the world. The Department of Energy’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant has been disposing of nuclear waste since 1999; its trucks have logged more than 7 million miles across the United States, bringing both low- and high-grade radioactive waste to the facility. In its decade of operation, WIPP has disposed of 95,000 loaded waste containers, the equivalent of 250,000 55-gallon drums, with no toxic releases to the environment or contaminated personnel. "

        This was sent to me by Leuren Moret, and has given permission to publish it.

        Hi Peter – I want you to know that I worked as a geochemist at Livermore Nuke Lab 1989-91 on the WIPP project. DOE spent about $2.5 billion dollars developing a “package” (canister) for the low level nuclear waste intended for the pilot study at WIPP. After 5 years in the Permian salt formation, the packages/canisters were brought back to Livermore nuke lab, along with the same canisters used to store rad waste at Yucca Mtn in Nevada. The bacteria in the “mines”, as they are referred to at Livermore, had eaten the special metal alloy
        canisters IN FIVE YEARS and left the nuclear waste.

        They STILL after 50 years have no way to safely store their radioactive waste. $2.5 billion later, a Judge in Washington DC about 5 years ago, ordered the Yucca Mtn. project be scuttled with all their fraudulent science. He told them to throw it all out and start from scratch if they wanted to pursue it. He also told them that the National Academy of Sciences had recommended that the waste must be guaranteed to be safely stored for 200,000 years. The Yucca Mtn. project ignored that non-negotiable requirement and said it would be safely stored for 10,000 years. They could not even store it safely for 5 years.

          The Judge ruled on the case and threw the Yucca Mtn. project into the
          nuclear garbage can.

          The entire project at WIPP and at Yucca Mtn. were science fraud at the beginning, the end, and in the middle.

    The WIPP story doesnt add up because its all a lie. Try the truth. Wasnt this waste storage site supposed to hold "low level waste"? It sounds like they were storing high level waste and possibly experimenting with it to see if they could make some weapons with it. I think something happened and went very wrong and it exploded. Or there was sabotage. Or both. Whatever is happening at WIPP is ongoing and I will bet theres still dangerous releases of radiation still happening. ;0(

    I think they know what is happening and hope it will go away on its own. And at the same time know that it won't. So they have a problem and would like a long period of privacy to dwell on it. From the link to "Numerous, Severe Geological Problems Identified At WIPP Site" given above it is obvious this was a bad idea to begin with. They know recriminations are in order–but wish to postpone them indefinitely. So once again as at Fukushima early bad planning. Then carelessness on a regular basis. Now they find acting as though it is a real surprise seems the way to go.
    Since this is a clear demonstration of what we can expect from gov and corporations we have no grounds for imagining any improvement. Human nature being what it is nuclear power and other technological miracles are too dangerous. We need to start immediately to drop the idea of science and technology as saviors completely out of our minds. The next you read or hear of a new scientific discovery realize it may well be reason for fear and trembling. Breathe and relax and go for a walk if necessary. Release this phantom of evil from your mind!

    The history of nuclear waste disposal has been one long constant fight. Those who possess want to be rid of it as cheaply as possible. And this task often ends up in the hands of the lowest bidder. There are still cases today of nuclear waste being dumped in landfills, some sixty years after it was a common practice by those making a fast buck. The nuclear waste disposal industry still has the same mentality, do it as cheaply as possible. (Ooops, tagged and shipped the wrong set of barrels…)

    It's a sleazy business, because those disposing the waste aren't willing to pay the full price for it to be done properly. No matter how it gets regulated, it's still a sleazy business.

      "2053-That is the number of nuclear explosions unleashed upon Earth."

      Yes, Four.

      When one looks at that map, you can see how many of those explosions happened in the southern hemisphere. Those considering escaping from the hell on earth that is about to hit the USA in the global reset, are going to South America. Sounds good in theory, but when you look at all that fallout hitting the SA continent, and how it winded up throughout the panama canal region, there is no reason to think that going from one hot situation to another that is worse, is any escape at all from the growing radiation pollution and contamination all around the world.

      Of course, one would escape the reset and coming martial law(nazi germany 2.0) in America by going down to SA. It's a real toss up, because these banksters have conquered almost every country, but America. If only we had all our troops guarding our borders from the enemies within, instead of guarding every other border in the world.

            Now here I am, a fool for sure!
            No wiser than I was before:
            Master, Doctor’s what they call me,
            And I’ve been ten years, already,

            Leading my students by the nose,
            And see that we can know – nothing!
            It almost sets my heart burning.
            I’m cleverer than all these teachers,
            Doctors, Masters, scribes, preachers:
            I’m not plagued by doubt or scruple,
            Scared by neither Hell nor Devil –

            What’s worth knowing, I can’t say,
            I can’t say what I should teach
            To make men better or convert each.
            And then I’ve neither goods nor gold,

            So I’ve given myself to Magic art,
            To see if, through Spirit powers and lips,
            I might have all secrets at my fingertips.
            And no longer, with rancid sweat, so,
            Still have to speak what I cannot know:

                However, one of the most devilish thoughts I came up with is as follows: What is if they have the technology to decontaminate matter or neutralize radiation, but they do no plan to use it to save us ? What if they intend to barricade in their bunker at safe locations, watching and waiting us die before they use their magic technology ? So that them (plus the necessary number of slaves) will by everything that is left of mankind, by design ? The raise of a "sustainable" two-class system à l'Egyptiènne ?

                    I'd held that thought of the possibility of the existence of radiation "neutralizing" technology since this particular mess began 3 years ago and said the same thing here in my posts as early as late-March,early April 2011 and I can only assume that the blissfully silent majority of the public must think they will break out such devices or compounds to save everyone like a Bruce Willis vs. an incoming asteroid movie even though heroes don't save the world from disasters or evil men in real life(?). The thing is that again I don't think anyone who "appears" to be a "man" who would commit such an unprecedented atrocity could actually BE human & if so would be a "sub-species" unworthy of living if they are so inclined to participate in such a vile series of filthy acts or even be so negligent as to allow so much suffering & death to occur as is possible with nuclear crap whether via "intent" or "incompetence" & worse of all if they do in fact have the ability to end this global crisis underway easily capable of wiping everyone out(?)! Or at least I tell myself that or perhaps I'm already "dehumanizing" those responsible so I wouldn't feel hesitation or remorse if our shared troubling thoughts of "Agenda 21" possibilities became known & proven true while I still had the strength and/or opportunity to extinguish those responsible including their existing bloodlines in retaliation for our grievous losses at their genocidal,inhuman hands & I'd bet I wouldn't…

As for the rest of the questions about the other life forms I have recently began to understand why we don't get the answers at this plane of existence but I had a feeling come over me lately that tells me we don't have much longer to wait for them to be answered. But that's about as far as I'm qualified or willing to go into a subject that's been banned here for good reason even if the time to re-evaluate the issue is very near.But anyone who has answers to anything I've pondered in this thread is more than welcome to elaborate further in an acceptable manner & method since I'm struggling with the same things more or less myself and wish I knew "why" and what to do next!

        Hello AFF,

        We have heard (corrections required) that the time of release of any potential radiation at WIPP was in the neighborhood or 33 minutes, or something along that line. Right?

        So, this video on your page showing 2:44 minutes of filmed release far exceeds that of what they SAID we released. Are we off here? It is obvious that the release was ongoing BEFORE this was filmed, and it is obvious it would have been ongoing AFTER this video was taken. So how long was this release of the hazardous evil killing radiation?

        The point is, there could have been a heck of a lot more radiation released here, as well as so much beforehand and after that was UNSEEN. The darn sad thing is, the lame stream media can not be trusted to tell the truth anymore. Truth in media is a thing of the past. Something that might have at one time existed in the history of this once free nation. Only the foreign press tells the truth anymore.

        If anyone has questions, (Stock) maybe you can call this reporter and have him ask your questions for you. If he does not do it, then it will be be plain Jane obvious they are covering this up, like the fukushima ELE. That being so, and as was mentioned here above, the intentional population elimination agendas march forward under the clouds of ignorance, and denial.

    I have been reading this site for awhile and decided to register so I can ask and answer.

    I dug up an older article (2010) about WIPP and the fact that DOE needed a place to put the High Level junk that was suppose to go to Yucca Mtn in Nevada.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126229739

    I guess that the move was made and maybe the design of the facility for low level junk wasn't good enough for high level junk ?? There is a lot of money riding on this storage facility and the precious jobs. Can't spend it if your dead.

    We're here in New Mexico and we're angry. We're in Albuquerque, supposedly out of the pathway of the plutonium releases. But then we both had the same bizarre, never-before physical symptoms within a day of each other. Nothing life-threatening (I guess that would not show up for a few years in any case,) but strange enough that we both said at once, "This has to be radiation!"

    We just put ourselves on a seventh waiting list to move back East. Soon as something liveable and affordable shows up, we're gone!

    A group called ResistanceUnited did a very good hour-long doc called "Radioactive Plutonium Plume coming out of New Mexico's WIPP" — the whole history of WIPP — who tried to stop it, and how there is NO REGULATION in play — not EPA, not NRC, not subject to environmental hazard laws, not anything. They could kill a million people penalty-free.

    here was even an elderly woman shown who was alive at the fist Los Alamos bomb tests. She said that all their crops died all their livestock died, and they were never told a thing by anyone. Then the people starting dying — lots of cancer in her family.

      Nice catch, Nigwil.

      Made a big boo-boo in the post above. They say this was going off for 33 minutes? We said it was longer than that looking at the smoking video thinking 33 seconds above. Opps!

      But in reassessing the point of view, how about this reasoning: If this is true that the alarms were "triggered late night", and we view the above mentioned video that seems impossible to find a link to now, that shows it was smoking away in the day time, what was going on in the time between the triggering of the late night alarms, and the time of day that this smoking plume of radioactivity was filmed? Hard to get a time stamp on this video as it cannot be found. Something unseen and unreported is what should be looked into.

      Hummmm…sounds like the second question to ask. First being, how hot in CPM's is it outside of WIPP RIGHT NOW today?

    In any ventilation system there are two types.

    This relates where the fan is located, inside the mine or is it located outside the mine?

    If the fans are located inside the mine the duct work is pressurized flowing to the surface and where it exits the ground, there is, and will be leaking before it gets to the HEPPA filters through the duct connections.

    In any inspection of an HVAC system there is a "extraneous leak coefficient" percentile on the downstream air flow that is figured in the TAB,(testing, adjusting balancing) form. In other words how much air is leaking from the duct work given that 100% of all seams, joints and connections are properly sealed. In a commercial building this is around 1.4% for every 10 connections.

    Given that a HEPPA filter is 99.7%, at 5 microns, effective where is the calculations on the pressure loss? There has to be some.

    Elements that affect duct work performance are; expansion, contraction, temp, wind, location, size of vent, humidity, UV degradation, type of joint sealants etc. These elements all affect the performance of air flow or lack thereof.

    If the fans are located on the surface the duct air flow is under negative pressure, sucking in air around the joints all the way to the fan which would not allow any air from escaping into the environment. If the HEPPA filter is on the negative side of the fan there would be 100% particulate entrainment, less .3%.

    Does anyone know where these fans are located?…

      In the Arnie vide, he says: what about the worker's clothes and contamination by personal contact with those exposed? These workers didn't just get dosed in their lungs…it was found in urine tests…like drug testing. My question is are they peeing into the community sewer system? Are other people, who may not now know they're "positive" peeing into municipal water? Does water treatment for this area include recycling as it does in many systems? In the future are we to be wary of air, water, food, AND THE PEOPLE WE MEET? Are there travel restrictions for those potentially exposed? Is there any form of local quarantine? I am loathe to bring up such questions. I know the answers are: no. The isotopes are freely moving in and among us as the sphere of contamination expands…not just in wildlife and the food chain as has been discussed here…but in ourselves.

    ''I remember who I thought were the hysterical ones testifying to the endless public panels before WIPP opened. One read into the record a long scenario with specific chemicals leeching together, fire and the resulting black smoke belching from the horizon. That person described in great detail the underground circumstances leading up to the release that nobody thought would ever happen. That person, whoever it was, was kind of old back then, and I wonder if he’s alive to see it. I’m now thinking he may get to say, 'I told you so.' ''

  • TO ALL YOU BEAUTIFUL ENENEWSERS: this is dedicated to 4warnd, name999, and especially fukugeddon, for making it so warm and inviting here…thank you so much for the literary inspiration, and for the praise! actually it got me off my ass to put up a post i have been meaning to for a while — here is an excerpt from the intros on the post and on the youtube page:

    …this is (in part) a presentation of my translation of the last verse of Goethe's Faust, the centerpiece of a solstice ritual whose text I had written circa 1992. It was performed live at the Cow Palace for New Year's Eve 1995 by yours truly, a female faust, in tails, top hat, & half white face, as vocalist and Enochian Ritual Unit for IAO Core in chill-room collaboration with the A.T.O.I..

    "What is destructable is but a parable;
    Here is perceived the unattainable:
    That without words
    here becomes *action*
    the
    Eternal
    Feminine
    lures
    to
    Perfection."

  • (since here i am doing my best agreenroad impression –posting links– although nowhere near as informative or thorough –

    a bit of humor, if you are so inclined, that i wrote after hearing that fukushima prefecture has pledged to go all renewable energy sources by 2040…

    very very dry humour.

    ps sorry i didn't see the replies sooner!
