    This report made me check the NWS records for Tallahassee, and we had 1.11 inches of rain on 3/30, the day before this measurement was taken in Jacksonville. But I shouldn’t worry, it’s not above the limits, or it’s no worse than eating a banana, right???

    Is there any sites mentioning uranium and plutonium levels?

    With number 3 reactor some has to be spewing out.

      Japan – Exploded Nuclear Plant Uses MOX Fuel – Not Uranium! What is that? Just 2 MILLION Times WORSE than Uranium or Chernobyl’s Meltdown!
      3/28/11 – Mox Fuel Reactor 3 the Crane has fallen and damaged the Mox Fuel Rods – the Expert says there is NO deny that the Mox Fuel is leaking Radiation! Video of him saying it!

      This is so sickening and yet NO government is talking about this the UN Nuclear Committee is not talking about this! The Earth is being made toxic for 50000 years! ALL nuclear energy plants should be SHUT DOWN! It is not worth killing the people and Earth when there are other energy sources available! Also all the brilliant governments have put nuclear power plants on Faults – there are 7 nuclear power plants along the New Madrid fault! The Earth is now being destroyed due to corporate greed!

        I agree.. Thank you for the link

      The EPA is quietly starting to release data on Uranium-234 & 238 contamination from air filter analysis.

        Gov. can’t admit there is oil in the Gulf and how much, test a few fish and open it !
        Anyone care to trust these numbers ?

        • Cuica

          Oil in the gulf? Oil companies will be glad when they don’t have to pretend anymore that they are trying to preserve the gulf….won’t be long before they are telling us that the gulf is so polluted heck,more oil won’t make a difference….then they can pass the savings on to us….
          What ever happened to…”this land is your land, this land is my land…”

  • Cuica

    And we were told communism was evil….I think I would have prefered sharing the world to destroying it.
    Capitalim/corporatism seems to have brought down not only civilization but every living creature on this planet…..
    Is there any chance we can change something in time????

      I’m beginning to think, it’s to late.

      Bring on that contaminated ice cream.

    • blevetoc

      Yes, move to the Southern Hemisphere. Australia, New Zealand, South America will be largely unaffected by this.

      • WindorSolarPlease

        People usually don’t want to stay where it’s dangerous.

        It’s to late to get a passport.
        Plus you need plane tickets,
        Place to stay,
        Enough money to live on,
        The most important thing is trying to talk your family into going,
        All they hear is everything is ok, and that’s what they want to believe.

        This is why I say, evacuate the people out of Japan, I know they can’t do it on their own, not many people could. They are in a terrible mess there.

          It’s not too late to get a passport.. Applied for mine Monday, and it should be here in two weeks (+$60 for expedited service) – stay tuned to see if it arrives.

      • dan

        I’m planning on South America. Gotta get my dog used to being in a crate for the flight.

      Sure Glad we don’t have the Most Corrupt Gov. in History !

    This ZAMG plume maps shows the radiation plume hovering over Florida for days.

    http://www.zamg.ac.at/pict/aktuell/20110325_Reanalyse-I131-Period2.gif

    I wonder if history will show that Florida was one of the “hot spots” of the initial plume.

    As far as moving to Australia or New Zealand, it’s not easy to become a citizen. You’d better check their policies. New Zealand requires you to have a lot of money to settle there.

    Also: Interestingly, the ZAMG plume maps no longer show the path from Japan to the US.

    Does anyone know why?

    “Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
    For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
    America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
    And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.”
