“If you find this number is more than enough already. Ward Road area of Toka not出Senai hand, such is the hope I quit. 7.356usv/h”

EX-SKF reports, “In his later tweets, he identifies the location as the front entrance of
a high rise apartment building (“mansion” in Japanese). This one.”

    a citizen monitor again!! well done!! a shame that the government hasnt organised ground testing already…they shouldnt have spent all that money on advertising and PR stuff!! they should have bought 100,000 gieger counters to begin with!! bet people would volunteer to check out their local area!! in fact i reckon people would be queing up…it would at least give everyone an idea of the extent of this contamination.. the government says that it is doing this but is unable to find ANY hotspots… something not working right there huh??/musing

      @ arclight,

      there is no need for 100.000 Geigertards,
      1.000 with a good knowledge
      would be more effective!

      This Picture suggest that the Materials for the House
      are highly Radiated/ above the Limit for Building Materials, he should contact his Lawyer!

      And move out of course ;)

      Setagayaku is home to many wealthy people and the price of property there is off the scale in most places. There has to be a concerted effort from politicians, business men, investors, banks, to cover up any hotspot discovery and manipulate data and public opinion. Protecting the institutions is always more important than the people, for any government.
      If the price of land in Setagayaku was to go down, many businesses, banks, and people would go bankrupt, beyond what we’ve seen after the Japanese bubble economy of the 90s.
      In other words, protect the very wealthy, let the rest eat radioactive dust.

      At least the culture there is very laid-back and warm. My friend from Europe thought it was just fantastic on a vacation! Plus, no visa hassles–smart!

        Good to hear! ☻ I’m hoping it all goes smoothly for the sale of our current home, finding a new place and job, get our autistic kid the help he needs there…..darn Fukushima! But if I do it right maybe there can be a great silver lining for a time: “the culture there is very laid-back and warm”

    Picknic table in Fukushima City.

    (7.121 MicroSieverts/hr x 24 x 365) / 1000 = 62.379 MilliSieverts/year

    >/= 20 MilliSieverts/year = government imposed mandatory evacuation

    62.379 / 20 = 3.119 times above the mandatory evacuation level

    (3.119 x 100) – 100 = 211.9% above the mandatory evacuation level

      Hey OD, nobody spends a whole year sitting at a pickynic table.
      scarring all the pickynickers into fast food outlets is bad use of your propaganda skills but government imposed mandatory pickynic evacuations ,well you’ve gone too far.

        I bet one could argue that nobody stands in one spot all year long…so any reading you take, its always in a specific spot to take a good reading. Thus you can conclude since you are never going to be in that one spot for long there never is a need to evacuate.

        Or you could conclude that if a picknic table top is this radioactive then there must be radiation all over the place. That’s when the government would come in, test many locations, and then evacuate the people. But that didn’t happen, now did it, dpl. Nor will it. The people need to be encouraged to keep testing “the picknic tables” and grow a personal and group concensus that it is time to evacuate themselves and let the naysayers stay behind.

    Did anyone else notice the readings were taken from slate?. Granite and marble and slate all are natural radiation sources because of the traces of uranium……… Don’t get me wrong, I’m an Australian living in Saitama and plan to leave January next year. Just lets not jump on the “Radiation everywhere” bandwagon. There would be more concern from incineration of potentially radioactive waste in Koto, even though filters would be employed, radioactive contamination in the air is possibly the most serious concern.
