EPA on Fukushima: “Radiation monitoring [lasted until] June 30, 2011… Elevated levels of radioactive material in rainwater [were] a result of the Japanese nuclear incident… In all cases, these are levels above the normal background… short-term elevations such as these do not raise public health concerns… EPA took steps to increase the level of monitoring of precipitation… After a thorough data review showing declining radiation levels in these samples, EPA has returned to the routine RadNet sampling…”

In reality, Fukushima cesium-134** was rising in EPA rain samples near San Francisco. This did not peak until the following year, when levels increased 5-fold over samples 9 months before.

Soon after the EPA’s Jan. 2012 results of 89 picocuries/liter of cesium in rain, Univ. of California Berkeley’s nuclear department reported finding no cesium-134 or -137 (MDA  = 0.84 pCi/L). The sampling locations were about 5 miles apart.

These levels measured in 2012 are the highest ever recorded in the U.S. for total cesium and cesium-137 during the 5-decade history shown in EPA’s RadNet database,

**UC Berkeley: “If we measure 134Cs… we know that it came from Fukushima”

  • Spin yet again but after almost being killed by FUKU fleas, I know this well…Readings are often in the USA way MORE than the limits of 350. Many cities are double that already. So expect them to raise the limits yet again to 1200 or 1500 cpm…

    How can that be, one year later higher levels of cs134 in rain water, all the models used state that the majority of the contamination was realeased in the initial weeks after accident, I am at a loss to explain this.
    Maybe someone has a explanation please or does it point to on going recritical or evaporation of the sea water with isotopes as it crosses the pacific ocean.
    It can't be from a locale source with the presence of cs134?

    • These Southern Hemisphere detections point to majors events happening at the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site at around December 2011, January 2012 and February 2012.

      Whatever happened caused major radioactive releases. If we detected this in the Southern Hemisphere, logic suggests that whatever occurred impacted the Northern Hemisphere more.

      This radio interview outlines the detection event here.

        V1 typed these pixels of light: "These Southern Hemisphere detections point to majors events happening at the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster site at around December 2011, January 2012 and February 2012."

        SP: The months of massive fires at Fukushima NPP as documented here on Enenews in the winter of 2011-2012 and verified by massive nuclear emissions on the Fuku1live YouTube videos which have been saved by thousands of Green movement members.

        My family like virtually everyone in our mid-sized city in west Texas suffered from intestinal problems ("Tokyo Trots") during that time frame. There was little doubt to me it was nuclear fallout induced sickness. Unexplained deaths in healthy children, young adults were noteworthy in the time frame 2011-2012.

        The jetstream carries the aerial emissions quickly across the Pacific. The water releases at Fukushima of radiation into the Pacific Ocean and carried by the Kuroshio Extension to North America has produced massive exterminations of sealife. Billions of sea creatures are dead from radiation. The survivors are toxic food for creatures higher on the food chain.

        Things will worsen and the nucleoapes will continue to deny the dangers of global contamination by one of the world's largest nuclear megaplexes before the meltdowns.

        They deny the health effects despite many of their finest scientists predicting for decades that such a multiple meltdown event would devastate carbon life forms in the Northern Hemisphere.

          Even the NRC officials following the developments at Fukushima in the early days after 3/11 were extremely worried, frightened by events they were following there.

          See the FOIA documents released for 2011. Enformable is a good source for this information.

            So the nuketards are going to do a 180 degree turnaround and contradict what NRC officials said? Eh, nuketards? Backpedaling looks stupid, especially when you're riding a unicycle with a flat tire.

  • Was it last week some expert saying Florida received the most Fukushima fallout? The real figures are hidden I'm sure. And since most of the radiation is bleeding into the Pacific epa only has our back if fish tested in large numbers. The corium is somewhere in the ground melting in the groundwater and to say we don't know where the coriums are without offering an educated guess is disingenuous. Epa us gov Tepco map gov are not your friends and their inaction and muzzling of media is worse then Orwells predictions.

    To

    I am outraged that the EPA has failed to serve the people of this country, whom it was designed to protect.

    The EPA must elevate its response to the nuclear crisis in Japan now, to help protect the public from further exposure to radiation resulting from the radioactive fallout that has contaminated our environment.

    The poisoning of our food supply, ground water, and farmlands will have far-reaching negative health consequences that will prove both tragic and costly. The EPA had (and still has to some degree) the power to minimize the impact of this nuclear disaster on the US. It has failed to act responsibly, failed to utilize every resource available to monitor and assess levels of radiation across the US since this crisis began, and, ultimately, the EPA has failed to accurately inform, update and protect the public during the worst nuclear crisis the world has ever seen.

    The EPA must examine global air transport projections (and similarly related, accurate data), combined with the most reliable (uncensored) release data from Japan to create accurate forecasts on nuclear fallout, and must warn the public (in a given region) when to take precautions to reduce their exposure during days when radioactive fallout is at its heaviest (ie. when radioactive isotopes in the atmosphere are more concentrated, or when rain is forecast).

    The EPA must begin a publicity campaign to "get the word…

    The EPA must begin a publicity campaign to "get the word out" on what we the public can do to limit our exposure to radiation, and minimize the accumulation of harmful radioactive isotopes in our bodies and our homes (ie. taking KI if I131 is present, sea salts baths to help pull toxins from the body, removing shoes & outerwear before entering home, esp. when it rains). This includes denouncing the statement made by president Obama a week after the incident, when he told the public do not take KI, adding that no radiation would reach our shores.

    How can the EPA state that levels of radiation from the Fukushima disaster are declining, when the RadNet data posted for milk and water samples from the coastal cities in CA (where my family and I reside) is so scarce? For example, the website only lists data for 1 milk sample and 1 air filter for San Francisco. A 2nd set of data would be needed for comparison for the EPA to decide if levels are going up or down. Milk data from LA collected 3/28/11 and 4/6/11, show I131 levels of 2.9 & 4 pCi/L, respectively. In LA, the I131 levels in milk (a marker for the food supply) were actually increasing, not declining as the EPA stated.

    Worse still, is the fact that the EPA has not included in their list of data, and thus not taken into consideration, data from other reputable sources, such as the UCBerkeley data that showed way higher I131 levels in milk from the bay area vs. the EPAs data. Universities across the…

  • mistresskeke

    Universities across the country could be utilized by the EPA to collect, measure and report radiation data to the EPA for a much improved picture of the evolving situation this crisis presents to the US.

    After we recently were told that Japan's reactors have been in full nuclear meltdown for over 2 months, and that radiation released is most likely 10 times what had previously been stated, it is clear that Fukushima surpasses the magnitude of Chernobyl. This disaster warrants an emergency response by the EPA that aims to inform and protect the public, rather than obscure the truth by minimizing the available data and downplaying the health impacts of radiation exposure.

    Please do what it is right.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Hi Ms. Keke, yes, the UC Berkeley BRAWN Lab was doing a decent job documenting the presence of some radioactive substances in soil, milk, food, water. And then they stopped. They claimed levels were going down, and monitoring was no longer needed.

      Big mistake, IMO.

    epa's response on may 26 2011

    Thank you for contacting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
    EPA’s RadNet system continues to monitor the air for radiation,
    providing nationwide coverage 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

    In response to the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, EPA increased
    the frequency of sampling for radioactive elements in precipitation,
    drinking water and milk. Radioactive elements were not found in the
    majority of the samples. Miniscule amounts were detected in a small
    number of samples, amounts which were far below levels of public health
    concern. A thorough review of all U.S. sampling and monitoring results
    show that the radiation levels remain well below any level of public
    health concern and are consistently declining. EPA is therefore
    returning to its routine quarterly sampling of precipitation, drinking
    water, and milk. We are prepared to again increase the frequency of
    sampling for radioactive elements and deploy additional air monitors if
    warranted by conditions in Fukushima or anywhere else in the world.

    You can see the laboratory sample results and near real-time monitoring
    data from the RadNet system on our website: http://www.epa.gov/japan2011
    . EPA will continue to post new data to the site, and the results
    collected to date will continue to be available.

        it didn't change their response to the crisis, but i felt i had to speak up. the response they sent me was basically a word for word copy and paste job of a statement posted on their website a couple months after the meltdowns- that their moved their fukushima monitoring data to an archived link for historical purposes, and that they went back to regular testing schedules, as if the crisis was somehow over.
        of course this, too, was a lie. they claim they do quarterly testing of drinking water and milk samples, etc, but in the year following their alledged "return to normal testing" schedule, I was only able to find data on 1 single milk sample in my region, #9, on the west coast. it was a milk sample from Hawaii that contained radioactive strontium.
        i stopped consuming dairy products, beef, and seafood after fukushima.

      We have got to find a way to wrest control of agencies like EPA from the control of the nuketard, health physics "experts."

      Until we do that, and fully debunk the myth of "low level" radiation being safe, we're not going to get much traction.

      How did we ever buy into believing all the nuketard lies? It was a carefully constructed and maintained campaign of deceit, lies, obfuscation.

    Of all companies, Exelon using GE that developed a 61% efficient turbine that can spin up or down to adjust to demand (normally turbines only run at one speed). Also can run on any fuel fed into it. Probably the best part is that these power plants have an off switch and don't product radioactive waste to have to deal with for centuries and neither do they have to draw off the grid to keep some radioactive core or spent fuel cool.

    'GE gets $500M price tag for gas turbines in Texas'

    “…Being mindful of increased water efficiency in drought-prone Texas, the new units will be cooled with air instead of water,” Exelon said in a written statement Monday. GE is also building two steam turbines and six generators for Exelon.

    The new combined-cycle units will each add 1,000 megawatts to the Texas power grid, which means they can light up 2 million Texas homes combined. The four turbines combined could save Exelon up to $32 million a year in power costs…"

One of his classmates just keeled over in class. It appeared his heart just quit..I told her "that's too bad but expect to see more of the same". While her jaw was dropping I hit her with " Fukushima has been spewing radiation for 1500 days". Now her mouth was wide open, her eyes wide open…she said "I remember that, is that still going on?" I looked her in the eye and said " Yep…welcome to the new age", and walked out.

    I have proof that precipitation last winter contained fallout to the tune of 792 counts for 10 min. Average background is 28-30 cpm. This was measured on 12" of snow from the previous night, in the morning. Hmmm.. Think adout driving in the rain or snow, the defogger is running, blowing nice warm air right at your face.

    What I can't let go of is the sense that we are in new territory, that FD-NPP unleashed a slew of toxins.

    The radiation readings only tell a part of the picture, NO ONE has a clue what the nano-bits of awol reactor cores and fools' pools are doing to us.

    It is not that I a fearful, just alarmed that we aren't having a real discussion across society about the toxins that nuclear technology has unleashed.

    If the EPA has reset "safe" levels ……then you and I should be very concerned.

    When I was an infant, my family was involved with trying to raise awareness about testing of atom/hydrogen bombs in the Pacific.

    My mother was born in Honolulu and she wanted to birth a child there as well.

    When she was pregnant, she came down with a high fever and took aspirin for several days.

    It was not until years later that I was found to be 50% deaf and actually am missing neurons from my ears to my brain. It is possible that my deafness was caused, in part, by the in-utero effects of acetyl- salicylic acid (sp?).

    What was never mentioned in my family was the FALLOUT from testing of weapons during my gestation period. It is quite possible that my mother's fever was actually low-dose acute radiation syndrome.

    I know it is all water under the bridge, but suffice it to say I have had to deal with the effects of FALLOUT (as do most of us…born since 1958) my whole life.

    My twin brothers were mono-amniotic (rare). They also relinquished their thyroids recently. One brother had a rare form of spinal cancer at the age of 20.

    My second son was born with TAPVR (total anomalous venous return). His mother was probably also exposed to Hanford's rays growing up in Wash. State.

    My mother has Parkinson's and only one functioning kidney.

    My father had prostate cancer.

    So…. don't get me started about WHY I might be a bit touch about Fukushima!

      Suspect I and my siblings (three of us anyway) also have had immune suppression since we were toddlers. Lots of respiratory ailments as babies, until we left Chicago and the Midwest.

      Am pretty sure living so close to the barely-buried Chicago piles didn't do us any good.

      Now they're creating a local park on the land where the Piles were buried (former site of Argonne Labs). Whee! Just bury them a bit deeper, wait a couple of years, and then build a park and invite all the kiddies.

      So much fun being part of the "living lab." Welcome to the rat-race.

    Sorry to 'hear' that Nick (sorry synaptic, first word that came to mind)

    Salicylates in general would be deemed as safe. However serving roles in hormonally (PGE1, PGE2) prostaglandin modulation and general fatty acid metabolism… its principle role would be respiratory, circulation, renal function and development. Secondarily joints and connective tissues. Nerve development and function further down the list…

    Work on that Pineal gland, will ya!

  • Nick

    TS: My pineal gland requires l-tryptophan to create serotonin….which transforms into melatonin.

    But my brain must deal with other competing amino acids that prevent tryptophan from crossing the blood-brain barrier. In addition, if my niacin levels go down, my body converts tryptophan into that b vitamin at the expense of neuro-hormones (serotonin and melatonin specifically).

    Tryptophan is the rarest occurring amino acid and not all foods allow for proper biological uptake into the brain.

    This is ONE reason why one needs to discover their own dietary regimen.

    It is also why I am so concerned about the effects of ionizing radiation on us all; for I fear that we are being impacted at the molecular (no make that at the quantum level!) as shared electrons in organic molecules get "bumped" and altered by the decaying atomic detritus that oozes from what used to be one of the world's largest nuclear electrical generating stations!

      nick and truthseeker,

      Unsure who it was that recently posted about niacin, however it made me recall marmite and vegimite, a staple of my childhood diet. Niacin is just one of many of its benefits. An online search will provide further details.

      Six sense impulses, I believe, are very important 🙂
      However fear, though understandable, does not help.

      Have you been checked for the MTHFR genetic defect, nick? And has your methylation cycle and energy metabolism ever been checked? Sounds like you have a lot of insight on what's needed for your own health. Good.

      If your amino acid production and regulation doesn't work properly, you might want to have the MTHFR lab testing done.

      This might also be helpful:

    Nick, I have been using Lifeforce Tryptophan

    Kajima Corp. and analysis equipment maker Nikkin Flux Inc. have jointly developed equipment that quickly examines large quantities of water for radioactive cesium.

    The box-shaped device, measuring 2.2 meters by 2.7 meters … can measure cesium levels in 3,500 liters of water … in about 20 minutes, compared with existing systems that take more than three hours to analyze two liters of water…

    On 9/8/2014, an old-established-cafe “Ginza West (Since 1947)” announced they started using Fukushima butter as of 9/1/2014.

    They commented “Now that the safety is confirmed based on scientific facts, it would increase harmful rumor if we keep avoiding Fukushima products.”

    They also stated on Twitter that it would be the real risk about food when nobody trusts the government’s announcement.

    Wow, you guys always make me feel like an idiot lol. I do have some questions for you. Being my scientific education consists of medical assisting and some psychology. I had no idea what all chemicals where in nuclear power plants. I had exposure in Germany from Chernobyl. So just recently one of you made a comment about cesium's half life and it's change in the body. Do any of you have further info on this? I am floored when anyone says pico-curries are nothing to worry about or don't be upset over a few spikes in your food. Any amount is foreign to your body and changing I believe this. I also do not like finding out that cesium is in Tx milk and I have to serve it to my child. What happens to Cesium once it is left on the land for a few months or a year? I know….but you guys are way outta my league. 🙂

    • FactChecker

      You can buy picoCuries of radiation sources on Ebay without a permit or government intervention. Its really not a lot. I bought old Coleman lantern mantles on Ebay that were less than picoCuries. Same with the old Fiesta Ware plates.

      • Wyakin Wyakin

        FC-Thank you for gratuitous sharing of your thoughts.

        Next time I contemplate the opening of Fiesta-ware or Coleman franchises in the EU to check for radiation levels, you will be the first person I contact.

        Well, probably not; I don't like camping and the fiesta ware finish is hideous so I think you should start your own franchise.

        ~W~

    • Lanterns or fiestaware mean little because they do not become internal.

      Cesium sticks around 30 year half life, it goes into plants for sure.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Hi StarMouse, it's OK, don't worry. We're way out of our own league here, too. Lots of us (myself included) had very little education about anything having to do with nuclear power or weapons, etc., prior to 3/11.

      Some people here do know a lot. Lots of TMI veterans, former nuclear power plant personnel, a nuclear engineer or two, we're from all walks of life.

      Please don't ever feel you're not welcome because you're learning about all of this. If we weren't welcome based on what we know when we show up here, I'd have hightailed it and run the first day I ever posted here!

      We're glad you're here. Welcome, friend.

    The truth is that my home state of IL is the stomping grounds for the pukiest nukers on the planet 🙁 I'm ashamed of that fact & probably bear a subconscious grudge against my ancestors for having chosen this place as their new home in the late-19th century after leaving Europe for the promise of freedom & prosperity in America. If they had been gifted with the ability to see where the future would lead I wonder where they'd be (buried)now? I'd like to think back in Croatia but even some of the best genetic backgrounds & minds bought into the lies of the Atomic Age ushering humanity to the eve of its own self-annihilation. *Don't buy the bananas*

    It doesn't really look like an increasing trend. Looks more like a one time spike to me.

    Not really anything significant in the long run.

    Remember the verse from THe Doors…" This is the end the end my friend."
    Well the end of all life on this planet…Im sure the 1% David Rockerfeller and the others will go wreck some unwary planet in some other solar system…This is what i think this crew of Satanists do.Go from planet to planet feeding on panic evil and mass murder. Not only of humans but all life.Back in 1975 when i was visiting my Indian teacher..He was cooking for hundreds of people and i was choking from severe asthma that i had in those days..Suddenly he appeared in a vision threwis arms around me and said he had a wonderful surprise for me.I found myself in the future and there was mass panic everywhere. Then i saw a huge massive tidal wave coming off the ocean. It was at least miles high…Now i have an idea what I saw.
