Analysis of data from sensitive U.S. monitoring stations for the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear reactor accident, Journal of Environmental Radioactivity: [A] major nuclear event at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station… resulted in a breach of the nuclear fuel integrity and release of radioactive fission products to the environment. Fission products started to arrive in the United States via atmospheric transport on March 15, 2011… Atmospheric activity concentrations of 131I reached levels of 3 x 10^-2 Bq/m³ [30,592 microBq/m³] in Melbourne, FL. The noble gas 133Xe reached atmospheric activity concentrations in Ashland, KS of 17 Bq/m³… [These levels] were well above the detection capability of the radionuclide monitoring systems within the International Monitoring System [IMS] of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty [CTBTO]… it should be noted that non-IMS stations located in Richland, WA detected the event one day earlier than any other systems within the US IMS network… The iodine detections reported in this manuscript are solely representative of the particulate iodine atmospheric activity concentration. It is recognized that the gas phase iodine was not collected via aerosol filtration [which] would be useful to assess the event and to quantify the total radioiodine atmospheric activity concentration.

According to remarks included with CTBTO data recently released by the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation, the total iodine-131 in the air was up to 500% of the amount shown.

CTBTO Particulate air monitoring data (.xls file), July 2014: The PTS [Provisional Technical Secretariat] itself issued a number of comments and caveats on the data:… “Since the IMS stations use paper filters to collect the particulate radionuclides in the air, part of the iodine in gaseous form passes through the filter easily. It is estimated that only 20-50% of total iodine (from all forms) was collected in the samples.”

Of the more than 1,500 measurements in the CTBTO data taken since Fukushima began, iodine-131 levels detected in Florida were the highest of anywhere in the world outside of Japan. Florida also recorded 4 of the top 10 daily measurements.

Before the U.N. made this data public, an ENENews report from April 2011 noted that for the specific date of March 22, Florida recorded the highest I-131 level of any  CTBTO monitoring station in the world.

    How fallout flies!

    • combomelt combomelt

      yikes!
      but please someone,….

      WTF IS A MICRO-BQ/M^3

      HOW MANY BQ/M^3 ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT????

      ANOTHER CONFUSING MEASUREMENT!

      • razzz razzz

        Catching fallout, in this case particulates, on small filter paper after being analyzed has to be converted to reflect fallout hitting a larger area or land mass to give it proportional reference.

        Conversion Factors:
        http://www.davistownmuseum.org/cbm/Rad1.html
        Maybe the 'CRUD' standard is more to your liking but it is used on a different level.

        Even so, they weren't expecting radioiodine in gas form to pass by and weren't setup to trap it for monitoring. At least not at this reporting station.

        With all that, I remember a reactor scramming itself in Florida at the height of the fallout from Fukus' Daiichi. Shut itself down it did, after air monitors sensed Daiichi fallout concentrated enough to automatically shut the reactor down as if the local reactor had a bad leak. I think there was a reactor one in the Carolinas that did the same thing around the same time as in Florida. Operators restart both reactors after checking and finding no leak at their reactor plants and wouldn't attribute the auto SCRAM to Daiichi fallout even though as you have read lately, they can identify the origin and age of some particulates and must have to determined where the fallout came from or why would they restart?

        Hot spots from Daiichi fallout depending on how the wind blows.

        • jump-ball jump-ball

          .Gov and the corporate press will do everything to conceal hotspots, but I continue to believe that public awareness of moving local hotspots and varying "radiation weather" will nevertheless eventually enter into west coast resident's daily activity planning.

          Worse than hotspots, I believe more widespread detection and more sensitive equipment will soon demonstrate that much of the contamination is moving in very concentrated tributary-like, snake-like sinews that are irregular and infrequent, but so much more concentrated than expected as to 'overwhelm' detection systems set to or limited to lower levels of radiation variance.

          Marine biologists commonly expressing their knowledge of "ocean streams", and analysts of often narrow jet streams as well as lower level atmospheric wind flow channels, will eventually become aware of the infrequent, irregular, sudden and unanticipated water and air rad surges that perhaps will appear as anomalous readings, but will in fact be seen as recurring, otherwise invisible moving minefields of contamination.

          Surprising and unexplained radiation readings are how past contamination-events and cover ups have been discovered: USSR-Ukraine fully intended to not inform Europe of the Chernobyl exposure until anomalous radiation detected at the Swedish Forsmark facility was determined to be of Ukraine origin, and Japan-Tepco silence was threatened when the USS George Washington and USS Reagan detected unexplained readings…more

        so, EXTRAPOLATED AIR CONCENTRATIONS OF 131I IN MORE REASONABLE TERMS….

        micro-bq/m^3 = 30591.92 = melbourne, fl = 0.03059 bq/m^3
        micro-bq/m^3 = 21606.81 = oahu, hi = 0.02161 bq/m^3
        micro-bq/m^3 = 15254 = oahu, hi = 0.01525 bq/m^3

            I wonder how on earth they could get this number for Ashland Kansas. Ashland is a very small farming ranch community of around 850 pop. I somehow doubt there is any radiation detection equipment there. Anyway just curious since my parent's live in the area.

            • ISeePinkClouds

              Yes. Good question. It leaves plenty of room for speculation. At WIPP I saw white pickups with white boxes on their roofs, and laptops on their console/dashboard. Mobile monitors? If so, was somebody expecting fallout near Ashton? If so, who? peace

        • raddog

          So basically, nothing, or pretty close to it.

      • MVB Michael Van Broekhoven

        For tons more on Radiation Units & Conversions, I put this page together:
        http://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/radioactivity/radiation_units/

        microBecquerel (mBq)… is 1/1000th of a Bq.
        And a Bq is 1 decay per second (a measurement of activity)

        SO, the highest value of 30,591.92 mBq/m^3 (microbecquerel per cubic meter)
        is 30.59 Bq/m^3 for Melbourne, FLorida, USA, on March 22, 2011.

        IF that air measurement was representative of the air in the mile above the point of measurement (1 mile = 1609.344 meters), and IF rain had washed the radioisotopes (in this case I-131) out of that badly contaminated air, then… a little calculation shows that, with these assumptions, a square meter surface could have received a fallout deposition in that area of nearly 50,000 Bq/m^2. (30.59 Bq/m^3 x 1609.34 m = 49,229.71 Bq/m^2 ) But there's a lot of unknowns, so it can't be deducted from the CTBTO data what the actual deposition was. Using my blog Meteo historical weather data link, http://weatherspark.com/history/30903/2011/Melbourne-Florida-United-States, I see that Melbourne, FL did not receive precipitation after the accident until March 28, which means the contaminated air blew through, but wasn't deposited there.

        For comparison, the USGS's data show the highest I-131 *deposition* (of their pathetically very few sampling points) to have been in the state of Washington, @ 5,100 Bq/m^2.

      • ISeePinkClouds

        Yes GU. Thanks. I try to keep up with netc. The numbers are astonishingly high. I was in Carlsbad NM two weeks ago. The background readings were not so high on the south side. Around 17cpm. The readings downtown were ten counts higher. The difference was/is that on the south side it is mostly gamma radiation. Downtown it is neutron radiation. My body could resist/repair itself from the gamma radiation. The neutron radiation gave me radiation sickness very rapidly; almost immediately. The symptoms have been slowly going away; but my hearing is not improving so quickly. This is to say that even though the readings were not so high, the effects can be drastic and immediate. I am very concerned about the people in Carlsbad. I believe they are in grave danger. I think we/I need to do something to help them. I do not know what. I know I cannot go back there. Radiation is upon us, and we are all in peril. We are all in grave danger…regardless of the readings. I told a new neighbor about the radiation danger. His response was, "Well, if there is nothing you can do about it, why worry about it." There is a great deal we can do about it. We need to do everything we can, and now. Awareness is a good start. Thanks again. peace

        • califnative califnative

          Iseepinkclouds – I read your post about going to Carlsbad (thought it was from vital1) and wanted to thank you for sharing that. I'm in Tucson AZ and do my own simple readings from a Radex1212 uSv/h GC. Looks like EPA's monitors stopped recording Carlsbad as of Sept 24th http://www.enviroreporter.com/radnet-air-monitoring/newmexico – never a good sign.

          I was wondering if you could share what your immediate neutron radiation symptoms were. Some forums don't work but the Off Topic is available. Personally I would really like to hear what symptoms people are experiencing these days. Since I moved here I been getting what looks like flea bites but I don't see any (have two cats and can't see any on them either) I am starting to think they are erupting by themselves, they itch terribly, turns in to a welt, leaves a red bruise colored mark for weeks. I know what flea bites are and this isn't it.

          • PurpleRain PurpleRain

            Could it be a rash of some type? I'm concerned with all the children that keep getting this respiratory illness that is now showing symptoms of being polio-related in some way… Wasn't there something similar going on in school age children in California last year that we spoke about on this site too? Could this be related to WIPP?

          • ISeePinkClouds

            Yes. Califnative. In Carlsbad I experienced both Gamma and Neutron Rays. I can tolerate Gamma Rays reasonably well. The Neutron emissions from Plutonium and Americium do immediate damage to my body. I worked with Americium and other radionuclides for 14 years. I have a good accumulated dose from that work. That being said, this is what I experience from Neutron exposure. I experience heat sensations, agitation or nervousness, localized headache, nauseau, waves of extreme fatigue, running nose, and most especially, ringing in my ears. I have not fully regained my hearing. The symptoms you describe sound like what I have heard others commenting on here on ENENEWS. That is that they experience a burnng sensation on the surface of theirskin. They spoke of it as if a hot particle had landed on them. They said they could brush it off when noticed. I have heard of both white and red spots associated with those particles. Others here will know more than I. There is a coverup by the DOE regarding WIPP and Carlsbad. An independent monitoring company needs to go in there. Lives are at stake. If you do not know, you can put your GC readings real time online at radmon.org. I do as oftenas I can. Well wishes. peace

            • califnative califnative

              ISeePinkClouds – thank you for that good description, I experienced those exact symptoms periodically when living in Santa Clara CA, so glad I finally left Nov. 2013. I also heard about the burning sensation of the skin surface here but mine is underneath and more like a monster mosquito bite with no mosquito. A sudden tiny single red pimple surrounded by red flushed circle, welt that itches terribly, fluid surfaces after scratching, spot turns hard like something is underneath, cortisone cream helps, can take 3-4 weeks visibly heal and go away. Can't find any similar pictures when searching the net. Fortunately I haven't received any new "bites" the last two days so it might be the end of it. My guess is there will be more websites sharing radiation symptoms and what to look for in the near future 🙁

              It looks like your a fairly new member, welcome 🙂 Your knowledge, background, comments and kind heartedness will be most appreciated here.

    At this level, I believe that the water should have been too contaminated to be safe to drink. In Gumma, which has similar levels, the government decided to recommended children not to drink the tap water because it was unsafe. What were the tap water tests results in Florida? They should reflect and pair the air tests results.

    Conspiracy has as its roots the activity by people to cover up their wrong decisions taken because of personal flaws, lack of experience, and ingrained belief systems. This Gina McCarthy (who has authorized the switching off of so many radiation monitors) would seem to me to be like so, so, many people out there today who will do ANYTHING to get that job or promotion and retain it. It is truly psychopathic and puts a paranoid edge into the general outlook on the world that we are all tending to assume in this time of scarcity and insecurity. 'Beggar thy brother' is becoming the order of the day. I think these people do truly believe that they are as God's on this Earth. Special and above the trials and tribulations that affect the lower orders. They so rich that their smiles will really ward off radiation and convert it into sunshine! Only for the true believers, though. Can't have no 'dissenters' in the brave new world of ignorant slavery to the Technocratic Enterprise. Your quality of life being utterly dependent on how easily you can access the necessary medical/technical assistance to treat or help ward-off debilitating/fatal cancers/diseases.
    This of course leads us to a nightmare conclusion that a psychopathic elite will preside over a genocide of the rest of the planet so they can enjoy a latte beside their heated indoors swimming pool.
    There's where I can see Gina McCarthy right now, sitting beside that pool. She looks into its depths and there are the fuel…

      "Earlier this year, Stanford University researchers said they had identified polio-like illnesses in about 20 California children over about 18 months. Two tested positive for enterovirus 68. CDC officials say it's still not clear if the virus was a factor in those cases."

    • We know low dose radiation will affect those with weakened immune systems first and it makes sense that it would come via the lungs of children with asthma.

      In the coming months and years I would say that we will see these types of observable 'waves' of illness sweep across the globe.

      We may also see 'waves' of suicides and odd human behavior.

      At 3 1/2 years into ongoing TRIPLE NUCLEAR MELTDOWNS that are clearly out of control I realize this is just the beginning of 'the suffering' that is to come.

      The statistics on radiation contamination vs cancer or death do not consider the level of suffering.

      This is going to be a long and winding road. 🙁

    Why is it that there are only very small amounts or safe amounts of Plutonium in these drums? They never say we are concerned because of the high level of radionuclides in the waste. No that would be too honest. No, events are never dangerous to the general public. How long must this lie go on?

    Corporate crimes against humanity, and, well, everything else, knows no borders. How far is that? 8000 miles or so. Nuclear is great, except when it's bad and then it's really fucking bad. How do you scream online? Aaaarghhh!!! how is it even defensible? Where is our new handy dandy nuketard shill to explain how this is all OK? They were all going to die anyway from nuclear submarines, Subway and corexit anyway, right?? Why does this all seem so insane to me and so seemingly inconsequential to the world at large? I grew up swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Its beautiful there, so sad. It's not just the Pacific and Japan and the West coast, its everywhere, invisible and deadly toxic. Nuclear sucks, the world being oblivious to how much it sucks, doesn't make it suck any less.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Melting Mermaid, just wait until the next bombshell story comes out, or the Federal Register is taking comments for some change in nuke policy.

      Then no doubt we'll get one or more new nuketard shills or fake nut-jobs to come along and disrupt everything, try to derail all the threads.

  • 😯 " Earlier detections also allow for a more timely response to an event…"
    – Journal of Environmental Radioactivity

    Yes, early monitoring does help with a faster response, which could and would save lives.

    This time it only took 3 1/2 years to get the data.

    Withholding life saving data is criminally negligent at the very least. 😉

  • Jebus Jebus

    Step back. More.

    To put the above words into perspective, think of all the points that were not tested.

    Think of all the places that the US has for monitoring.

    CTBTO? That's all we get? Look over here, Florida got hit hard.

    No, don't ask about the West Coast of North America.

    No don't ask about the Ocean. Don't ask any questions.

    But, how did that noble gas, think about that word, gas, get to Florida without passing through Barstow. or Grants Pass, or Carlsbad?

    Gas, a fundamental state of matter. Unique in that it exponentionally expands in the atmosphere.

    Not particulates like radionuclides, but a gas.

    Noble gas does not hop skip and jump around the globe.

    Rainout? sure, but think how much there was if that much rained out!

    Apply critical thinking to this article and you see that if the amounts in Florida were tested, what were the amounts on the West Coast of North America, where the data was very minimal and non existant at best.

    Think. No one is telling you about the Pacific Ocean and West Coast doses for a reason…

  • Dick Shenary

    melting mermaid – I must say that nuclear is never great. Normal operations require that reactor caps be removed once a year for re-fueling and they release enormous amounts or radiation into the air and water. The industry is very quiet about this yearly procedure. And then the power generated is so expensive that no one dares to meter it. Not to mention, the future will despise us for the waste we have left them. How on earth can this be considered great?

    • melting mermaid melting mermaid

      "Normal operations" I just don't see why we can't use this one single fact to start a class action suit. I'm in the evacuation zone of the Vermont Yankee. I'll work for free. Socrates, other lawyers out there. Isn't the cover up of the yearly refuelling process grounds for a lawsuit? I don't know? I went canoing and swimming in the Connecticut river while I was pregnant with my little girl. No one ever told me they were leaking tritium into it. She's got all kinds of problems. Shut them down, shut them all down.People can survive without electricity. But they can't survive without water, without oxygen. It's just so frustrating. Having a special needs child is insano expensive and life altering and exhausting and depressing. This is what we are giving to our children, our children's children. It's the greatest crime of all human history. And they Knew!!! And they did it anyway.

      • Socrates

        You would think that the courts would offer protection to residents and consumers from normal operations of nuclear power plants. Permissible discharges are considered to be safe. Most of us enewsers know that these discharges increase our risks of cancer and other health problems. It is difficult to prove that federal standards are erroneous. Bare compliance with an erroneous federal standard provides a defense. Causation is difficult to prove.

        How many times do we heard about instances where discharges from nuclear power plants were elevated? Always it is said that there was no immediate threat to public health.

        Future medical monitoring costs would be the damages for many class action lawsuits involving nuclear power plants. How many of these have we seen? Probably few. Three Mile Island case was dismissed and money paid out with confidentiality agreements pending appeals of the dismissal. Normal operation discharges are significant risk factor to children and pregnant and nursing mothers. Federal standards in the US ignore the special sensitivities. This is a political judgment, not a scientific judgment.

        The closer you live to a nuclear power plant, the more risk there is for children and mothers to being diagnosed with signature illnesses. There are 60 studies or more proving this, most are in Europe. Epidemiology shows association, not causation as such. There are many legal hurdles.

            @ MeltingMermaid – my heart goes out to you. I was a "special needs child". Genetic issues, dyslexia and more. Cancer 4 times so far, first time when I was 14. My father was a rocket engineer running crews of people for Martin Marietta in Asia and Europe handling nuc warhead cruise missiles in the 50's. Radiation is very bad for pregnant women and little kids. I used to play in his workplace with the missiles hanging overhead.

            I forgot to mention, both of my younger sisters have genetic issues as well. The three of us have different issues though. All of us sisters have in common the exposure to radiation via our mother who was exposed. Plus we were exposed due to being near radiation. I am the oldest so my cancers have shown up first. My younger sisters watch my "journey" with dread in their hearts and they wonder when their cancers will start.

              My heart goes out to you more. Wow. Why did we ever mess with such things? My son is studying greek myths now, and I always wondered why the Gods punished Prometheus so much for giving mankind fire. I think I get it now. We,collectively, have neither the spiritual nor the psychological maturity for such technology. We've just used our technology, selfishly and maliciously and now we have wrought our own doom with it. Still, in the face of a probable ele, we can't pull ourselves together to do the right thing. Too much greed and corruption, lobbyists and legal hurdles to even mount a defense for the survival of mankind. I think that's what makes me the angriest…

        • ISeePinkClouds

          Yes. Socrates. Would not the situation with the residents of Carlsbad NM be quite different. WIPP is DOE owned. Operation is subcontracted. They are ultimately desparate for help. They do not even know that. Maybe the possibility of compensation would wake them up. Not to undermine the thread. It is simply that it is a whole city in immediate peril. Those people have to get out of there. It is the worst travesty I have seen in America…short of Obama telling the whole country that radiation from Fukushima poses no threat to Americans. That is grounds for impreachment I think. My principle concern is for the residents of Carlsbad, and the whole area around there. WIPP will kill them all if they don't move. peace

That is eight-grade science. Blaming the lawyers in blogs will not save the world. At the rate we are going, nothing will.

            If you were accused of a crime, you would want a good lawyer, right? You would want the judge to only admit expert testimony against you that was based on science. Correct? Being anti-lawyer is not always a good idea. Few educated people feel that society could function without a legal system. That implies that lawyers and scientists are necessary. Forensics is legally-based science. Not always correct but better than witchcraft and religion.

            I understand your frustration at the lack of justice in our society. You should be in the streets protesting rather than being inactive. Blaming the lawyers is an excuse for inaction.

              Socrates, I think you may be a little touchy since you are part of the system that has brought us all to this place in time. This is not about bashing lawyers, but the entire legal system that is set up to allow these types of atrocities to move forward unabated.

              Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is the cornerstone of public health, and informs policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare.

              This is a pretty clear explanation and the pictures from Chernobyl, TMI and then Iraq DU weapon use are very clear within the terms you are using. A set pattern and association has already been scientifically proven beyond any shadow of doubt.

              Your legal system is currently perverted and severely broken…it's not your fault.. and you just like millions of others are now simply victims entangled in this system and it's billions of legal tentacles spreading worldwide.

              Complexity has led us all here to this place in time and it depends on the meaning of is. 🙂

              Grey areas abound everywhere in legal writings that were set up purposefully by the wizards in charge. The best crook is the one in the suit with a team of lawyers..

              I will yield to this one.. once again..it is a very good read. 🙂

        The biggest crime is that they continue with nuclear energy and they are spreading the use into other countries. They frack with uranium or depleted uranium. And it is no wonder that Florida has so much radiation. How much uranium has been used in the Gulf of Mexico? Or are they even using plutonium "testing old warheads"?

    The iodine detections reported in this manuscript are solely representative of the particulate iodine atmospheric activity concentration. It is recognized that the gas phase iodine was not collected via aerosol filtration [which] would be useful to assess the event and to quantify the total radioiodine atmospheric activity concentration.
    As usual partial information, it is not as if that a machine does not exsist to measure the gas phase, someone somewhere has the complete data and fully knows the true extent of what and how much was released into the environment, break the silence.

  • We Not They Finally

    Leuren Moret said in an interview a few months back, that the hardest hit cities at first were Melbourne, FL and Pittsburgh, PA. 2-1/2 years later, a close friend in Pittsburgh suddenly found that she had both thyroid cancer and lung lymphoma (for a non-smoker) at once. They thought the lung might be more urgent, so by the time they operated on what they thought was thyroid cancer contained, it was stage four. Thank God she's recovering, but it's beyond outrage. People in those cities (and of course everywhere else) were not even told to stay out of the rain.

  • Very normal. Showing data 3 years after the fact published in some obscure scientific journal you have to buy. No doubt filled with scientific gobbledygook no average citizen understands.

    Another excellent report at Aljazerra…

    by Gregg Levine

    Nuclear solutions to climate change are anything but

    That plan to limit CO2 production has already come under fire from fossil fuel-friendly corporations, trade groups and politicians who balk at the regulation, and from climate scientists and activists who point out that the president's plan does not do enough to meet the maximum-2-degrees-of-warming goal, but a group you will not hear complaining is the nuclear energy sector.

    Buried in the proposal and absent from many initial reports on the plan is a series of programs and pledges that encourage the preservation and possible expansion of the nation's nuclear electrical generation capacity. The president's proposed carbon rules assume nuclear power to be a clean, low-carbon energy option, and so put forth a nuclear industry Christmas list of subsidies, incentives and financial backstops that potentially funnels billions of public dollars into private industry hands and risks missing emissions targets while increasing the danger of a nuclear mishap.

    Yep,I remember watching the ATM "simulations" that showed FL and the Carribean & part of the Gulf engulfed in xenon which was dismissed/explained away by TPTB while at the same exact time Obamalamadingdong was down in Brazil with 53 SUV's full of his BFF's & families while I woke up every day from mid-March into May 2011 tasting metallic shitium in my throat & just knew it was no coincidence that I felt like I was breathing through an old vacuum tube! Actually it was EXACTLY like the smell of the back of an old tube-type TV set after it's been on for awhile or my old 1st generation laser sight. A big clunky device filled with C-type photocells that I had on A Belgian FNC Paratrooper assault rifle until the housing broke and xenon slowly leaked out of it[?!!] 🙁
    Since then my worst fears were realized in the form of my wife's cancer & all those who've died via hyperspeed,aggressive cancers between 311 & the present(which is still 311!!) I guess we ARE living "in a vacuum tube" by now since those 469 fatal doses chasing each & every one of us don't have to "chase" us at all??!! We are chasing our fatal doses down ourselves!,chasing it down with every breath,drink,bite of tainted food & drops of rain we find falling on our heads! The shitium didn't exactly "skip" over the rest of (most of)the America's or just "appear out of thin air"-it absolutely HAMMERED us ALL before crossing back over into Europe & Asia & still does to this very day!MF'n EPA! 🙁 …

    • ISeePinkClouds

      Yes. Revolting development. The first thing that came to mind is that only seven degrees mean average atmospheric temperature divides all fresh water freezing or all fresh water ice melting. My question is: will the heat from the uncontrolled fission of the reactor cores embedded in a basaltic environment contribute to increased vulcanism as a result of heat transfer to underlying magama? As a result of this eruption, I am inclined to think that it very well may contribute. Time will tell. Again, my heart goes out to the Japanese people. peace

  • BRINE WATER, i.e. salty water! You got the ramifications?

    The URS company, which runs Hanford, WIPP, Oak Ridge is making TEPCO look like geniuses…..

    A truck carrying 110 barrels of brine water has overturned near the federal government's nuclear waste dump in southeastern New Mexico.

    New Mexico Motor Transportation Police and New Mexico State Police say the commercial vehicle's brakes apparently failed and it flipped over after going through an intersection.

    The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant is about 26 miles east of Carlsbad

    http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_26606205/brine-water-truck-overturns-near-wipp

    • Are they hauling brine water out of the WIPP?

      Even if brakes failed, why would that cause a truck to flip?

      Are they hauling Plutonium contaminated brine water out of the dump, and are desperate to get it off site quickly, otherwise the proper disposal would become a multi million dollar cleanup issue.

      Sheesh!

      • The police are not releasing the name of the "company" that generated the brine, as there is an investigation ongoing.

        ———–The name of the transportation company and the name of company which produced the brine water is not being released, state police said, as an investigation regarding the crash by the New Mexico Transportation Division continues.

        It's possible they had been disposing of brine water at WIPP for decades. But the real problem with brine water hauling is the frackapes (newly coined word to go along with nucleoape) 🙂

        The frackapes seem to be in a race with the nucleoapes to see who can destroy the world's drinking water. Up until about 1990 the nucleoapes were far in the lead. But now the frackapes are close in the race for fresh water destruction (nucleoapes far ahead now on ocean water destruction).

        Web news of note for the frackapes brine water hauling:

            Yes. I saw many trucks come and go from the North road. The road is a government road; that is US and NM. Trespassers are subject to arrest. I talked with an Environmental Geologist who told me that part of his job was to find and to remove pockets of water from the salt. The DOE, thru a Los Alamos Nuclear Lab spokesperson admitted that they are having to shore the ceiling, and remove radiation from the walls. I thought that was interesting, since the panel, #6, where the explosion took place, is sealed and too hot to enter. WIPP is not closed. The releases are ongoing. peace

              WIPP "brine water" disposal by truck confirmed. Who gets the final loads?

              Best Answer: Frackape injection disposal wells. These apes do work well with the nucleoapes.

              Worst answer: truck dumping into local backwater creeks and streams. Nobody knows but the Shadow.

              I know a trucker who admitted this type of dumping in west Texas. Much cheaper and faster for the frackape companies than using injection wells.

            • PlowboyGrownUp

              Where are they getting this brine water? From the salt cavern storage? Really bad sign, means water is seeping in somewhere, unless it's being drawn out of the air by the salt.

              • ISeePinkClouds

                Yes. Two things maybe. I think wells in the area produce salt/brine water. The Environmental Geologist I spoke to mentioned that the brine water at WIPP had been trapped there since the formation of the salt beds. I took oilfield roads to get as close as possible to the WIPP. I tried to judge how close the oil drilling was to WIPP. It looked to be within seven miles, and moving closer. I have a really bad feeling about that. Salt domes collapse due to water percolation, and form sink holes. peace

      • Maybe WIPP sprung a leak?

        Lots of geologists warned about this..

    Thanks Jeb, Stock very enlightening. But Man can immediately start taking immediate action by- throwing away all cellphones, video games, planting a garden, driving their car much less, shutting off lights and pulling the plugs of electrical cords not in use, not purchasing any processed foods, buying juices and milk in carton containers only (not plastic), home school your kids(eliminates school buses and taxpayer support of an educational system that doesn't work), don't use credit cards and spend more than you make, if possible use the barter system. Start downsizing today…
    Also, spread the word about Fuku and radiation to the most important people- like your firemen, policemen, soldiers, etc.

    • Yes I use cash for all personal expenses, many people do not know that the credit card companies extract 2 to 4% from the merchants. It is a no value added method of extracting wealth from the real economy. Think about 2.5% GDP growth being healthy and robust.

      Now think about a no value added "service" extracting the same percent.

      Got it?

      Got the really big garden, supplies all food except meat. Consumption of processed food is down 95% and I do feel significantly and obviously better. Also do a tablespoon of real honey and (seperately) a table spoon of ACV apple cider vinegar each money as part of my morning ritual.

    No significant levels of radiation were reported anywhere outside of Japan – and only in Japan local to Fukushima.

    So basically this is reporting that the highest insignificant levels of iodine were reported in Florida. Big whoop-ti-do – who cares? Somewhere had to have the highest levels. Kansas had the highest levels of Xe – also insignificant…
