"...not likely to reach..." implies likely to reach? Now, we have another source of radiation concern in addition to cell towers and new PG&E meters...
I was living in NYC at the time of the 911 event. I remember well the EPA advising everyone that the air was just fine down at the site. Now people are dying.
Not likely is so subjective. What are the actual levels/numbers for CA? Could you find out?
The FIRST radioactive clouds have just reached the SFBA....
So much for the M$M type headline....
It was just mentioned on the News Hour tonight that radiation from Japan has reached CA but is too dispersed to be of concern.......now where did I put my iodine....?
CalFire - Secret source revels Radioactive fallout from Fukushima Japan reached California early this morning. CalFire -I could not be more pissed at our state and federal government agencies. This info should be released not leaked! Seeking facts not reassurance. CalFire- PA RadNet near-real-time data is washed for public consumption and apparently has a classified side too. This reeks of 911 again the washing the news prior to release.
Japan Nuclear crisis FukNuke- I am sick of the sky is blue folks as much as the sky is falling folks. Seeking accurate factual information. Again - What are the actual levels/numbers for CA? Could you find out?
From the standard agency handbook:
1. Once you determine that there is no danger, reassure the public that they are safe.
2. Once you determine that there is a danger, reassure the public that they are safe.
From the standard agency handbook (cont'd):
3. If you are uncertain as to the level of danger or you just don't have a clue as to you are doing (this will occur about 99.99% of the time), reassure the public that they are safe.
Here is a chart about radiation dose levels that can help clarify and hopefully ease some concerns.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
