The White House is preparing for a situation in Japan that could be “deadly for decades,” a U.S. official tells ABC News.
According to the official, the U.S. believes a larger evacuation zone should be imposed and that the next 24-48 hours are “critical.”
“It would be hard to describe how alarming this is right now,” ABC quoted the anonymous official as saying.
"There is talk of an apocalypse and I think the word is particularly well chosen," European Union's energy commissioner Günther Oettinger said today, according to various reports. "Practically everything is out of control. I cannot exclude the worst in the hours and days to come."
Just as these fucks were silent with Katrina AND BP in the gulf, the same protocol will happen for the West coast... Systemic, clinical and Goddamned methodical... silence and omission, is still playing an active part.
Addendum, update, what have you...
International Citizens Radiation Monitoring Network
If we could rely on the Japanese and American governments to inform us of any danger, we wouldn't have to be so vigilant. But given the American government's cover up of the severity of the BP oil disaster, the health risk to New Yorkers after 9/11, and numerous other health issues, we will have to educate ourselves.
For example, the U.S. Surgeon General has recommended that West Coast residents stock up with potassium iodide, while other government officials say that is unnecessary, because radiation levels will not be high enough. But no government has disclosed radiation readings in the West Coast, so we can't verify for ourselves whether or not there is currently any danger.
Also note, many of these personal geiger counter's only register a small selection of certain types of radiation, which leaves out whole swaths of other type halmful radiation isotopes, for example, Strontium-90 and many many others..
Online Geiger Counter Nuclear Radiation Detectors
Readings are in uR/hr for Cs137/Co60
Only detectors with readings in the last 24 hours are displayed
love the jargon... don't you?
National Radiation Map
In cpm's (counts per minute) has been updated to include Hawaii- manual readings so far (and potentially Alaska), scroll to bottom of page. Also, there's a link to a message at the top of the homepage.
