April 27, 2012 Potrblog finds rain 40X background in St. Louis. The Potrblog team plans on monitoring the decay pattern and subsequently reporting their findings
What could be so "hot" in the rain?
Might it be from Fukushima?
Fukushima Diary reports that Mr. Oyama, Minamisoma city councilor, measured 500CPM from a sample of black substance. The analysis results were: "4.2 million Bq/Kg of cesium from Black substance and microscope pics"
Perhaps it is from unit 2 at Fukushima Diachi?
Enenews reports: "7-fold increase in radioactive cesium being released from Reactor No. 2 during April" (CHART)
Fukushima has been very active lately, awing its webcam audience with regular massive steam releases that come from the ground, among other worrying places. I'm keeping records for the purposes of documentation :)
Wait! Maybe its from the chemical complex fires in Iwakuni; the burning plant there stores depleted uranium and who knows what else http://en.ria.ru/world/20120422/172969128.html
Fukushima Diary lends support to the hypothesis of the Iwakuni chemical complex as a potential source. He reports 0.44~9.31 μSv/h measured after explosion of chemical complex. Was it from there?
I know! It could be the reactor at Tokai that has leaked radioactive water and suffered a fire
Well, I guess the source could be any of the 14 damaged nuclear reactors in Japan:
Enenews: Fukushima Report Introduced by Top Official Hosono: “Other reactors are all in considerably severe condition” — 14 total; Dai-ni, Onagawa, Tokai — “Extreme situations, though not much has been broadcast” (VIDEO)
I suppose there are plenty of potential sources in the US as well.
Oh dear; it is so hard to know where things come from in this ongoing environmental holocaust....
Wake UP! We are running out of time to contain the disaster at Fukushima, as well as imminent (San Onofre) and ongoing (e.g., Hanford) disasters at nuclear plants around the country:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=sNeRxpYCkHs
In the US, our EPA is too broken to protect us:http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffmcmahon/2012/04/27/inspector-general-faults-epa-radiation-monitoring/
The FDA is far too corrupt to protect us:
And the White House is being held hostage by the nuclear-oil-financial-military complex.
We need to write our congressional representatives and government agencies, demanding transparency and accountability.
