Video Maps Spread of Radioactivity in Real Time By Dr. Gerhard WotawaCentral Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) (Wien, Austria) Starting from March 15, this video map shows the movement of Iodine-131, a highly radioactive isotope, from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant. To see a global video of the spread of Cesium-137, visit ZAMG and scroll to bottom of page. NOTE: Because the video can’t be resized to fit article column width without losing motion (or rather, I don’t know how to do it), scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the map.

From English translation (pdf): Accident in the Japanese NPP Fukushima: Spread of Radioactivity Weather in the crisis region Currently, northwesterly upper-level winds predominate in the crisis region. Dispersion modelling Dispersion model results currently show that the plume spreads towards the ocean. Radiation data/CTBTO The CTBTO station in Takasaki/Gunma in Japan was recording the detection of numerous radionuclides.

Home Fukushima-radiated West Co. cover up - National Human Rights While complete decontamination of Japan's Fukushima nuclear facility is estimated to take three decades at a cost of up to 10 trillion yen ($125 billion), as reported Monday, Fukushima's contamination of the United States, particularly the West Coast, is not being reported. The decontamination process on the West Coast is not happening. The largest earthquake in Japanese history and ensuing tsunami left thousands of Japanese dead, with many more missing, resulted in unprecedented radiation levels locally and sent that Fukushima contamination toward the United States and beyond. Human rights abuses related to the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility have also been unprecedented, mainly through the ongoing coverup of the severity of the catastrophe. The continual coverup is worsening the ongoing. global, living nightmare. Monday, Russia Today (RT) reported an example of the criminal coverup. The following is Snyder's list, edited for brevity. #5 Starfish all along the U.S.

As we reported earlier this week, the DHHS put out a solicitation asking for companies to supply 700,000 packages each containing 20 pills to be delivered before the beginning of next month. Potassium Iodide helps block radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and is used by victims of severe nuclear accidents or emergencies. Questions immediately arose as to whether such a large purchase was routine or if it was linked to concerns about radiation from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant impacting the west coast of America. “So you don’t actually know why you’re buying it?” This article was posted: Friday, January 3, 2014 at 5:58 am BUSTED!

The Public Record | Intrepid New Journalism 36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast Michael Snyder The Truth January 1st, 2014 Reader Views: 89,170 The west coast of the United States is being absolutely fried by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the mainstream media is not telling us the truth about this. What you are about to see is a collection of evidence that is quite startling. Taken collectively, this body of evidence shows that nuclear radiation from Fukushima is affecting sea life in the Pacific Ocean and animal life along the west coast of North America in some extraordinary ways. But the mainstream media continues to insist that we don’t have a thing to worry about. The mainstream media continues to insist that radiation levels in the Pacific and along the west coast are perfectly safe. #1 Independent researchers have measured alarmingly high levels of radiation on the beaches of the west coast. #5 Something is causing starfish all along the west coast of the United States to literally disintegrate into piles of “white goo“…

CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names Radiation Emergencies | Facts About Potassium Iodide (KI) What is Potassium Iodide (KI)? KI (potassium iodide) is a salt of stable (not radioactive) iodine that can help block radioactive iodine( from being absorbed by the thyroid gland, thus protecting this gland from radiation injury. The thyroid gland is the part of the body that is most sensitive to radioactive iodine. People should take KI (potassium iodide) only on the advice of public health or emergency management officials. There are health risks associated with taking KI. KI (potassium iodide) does not keep radioactive iodine from entering the body and cannot reverse the health effects caused by radioactive iodine once the thyroid is damaged. KI (potassium iodide) only protects the thyroid, not other parts of the body, from radioactive iodine. KI (potassium iodide) cannot protect the body from radioactive elements other than radioactive iodine—if radioactive iodine is not present, taking KI is not protective and could cause harm.
