——- Over And Out. ——-

Perhaps… it is merely a “sign of the times,”… that I “don’t know what to say anymore”…  but it’s not so much that I don’t know what to say anymore, but…  it’s that…   well…

Irregardless of several (“merely perceived”) de facto pointy death threats in the past 7 weeks, it appears that there are forces, very clearly NOT aligned with ‘the quest for Truth’, that by now have taken such hold of modern western democracies (or what’s left of dynamics still even remotely deserving that description…), that ‘their message’ can no longer be considered “not received.”     No need to elaborate.

And thus… the Government of Absurdistan (me, myself and I) has unanimously voted to suspend all blogging activities until some semblance of respect for genuinly uttered viewpoints is restored.

This blog is now merely an Archive.


All independent reporting, documenting of radiological events and official-policy-non-compliant commentary has been suspended for the time being.

Any Marine Death Clues in Polonium-210/Lead-210 Ratios or Lead & Mercury levels?

Foot of snow in the forecast for later this week.  ;-)  Nov. 23, 2015

Polonium-210 flashback:


So… the Polonium-210 / Lead-210 ratio in precipitation samples varied from 0.02 to 0.09 with an average of 0.06 at the NASA Stennis Space Center in Southern Mississippi… However, this ratio (Po-210/Pb-210) during the Fukushima fallout was up to 1.5 on March 23.

Pb-210 decays to Pb-206, by way of Bismuth-210 and then Polonium-210: http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/082.210/index2.full.prod.html  Excerpt showing the end of various decay chains:

So why would there be a surge in Po-210, 2500% more than the likely also-increasing levels of Pb-210?  I hadn’t actually asked that question before…

While the normal Po210/Pb210 ratio is 0.06; or in reverse, the normal Pb210/Po210 ratio is about 16.7.    The first ratio, Po210/Pb210 was 25 times (= 2500% if that) higher than normal, meaning 25 times more Polonium-210 than normal when compared to Pb-210.  (So the actual increase could very well be higher, as ratios can hide that…)    While there’s normally far more Pb210 than Po210, there actually was more Po210 than Pb210 after Fukushima.  Why would that be?

At the time I was only learning that te alpha radiation from the decay of Po-210 is very intense and that this is a far greater health hazard that the traces of Cesium-137 found in fish.  This was always pitched (by ‘experts’) as if Po-210 is natural, unlike artificial ones like Cesium-137, Iodine-131, Cobalt-60, Manganese-54, etc.  I would think they’d go up together, given they’re part of the same decay chain.  I figured that Polonium-210 detections would also increase, due to all the Plutonium, Uranium and Thorium sent up into the atmosphere and flushed into the Pacific Ocean, and I’ve wondered if this plays a role in the ecological disturbances that have been plaguing the Pacific Ocean in recent years.

“Way back then” (in spring and summer 2015), I speculated if extra Polonium-210 was created due to activation effects of neutron emissions:

I figured that if omni-present stable Lead-208 (natural stable lead is about 1% Pb-204, 24% Pb-206, 22% Pb-207, and 53% Pb-208) is bombarded with neutrons it would become Pb-209.  Lead-209 quickly (half life only 3.2 hours) beta-decays into Bi-209.  If there was enough neutron flux to create Pb-209, I speculate that there probably would be enough too for Bi-209 to turn into Bi-210.  Bi-209 + neutrons => forms bismuth-210, which has a half-life of 5 days. Bismuth-210 decays into polonium-210 through beta decay.  Polonium-210 has a half-life of 138.39 days, and becomes Pb-206.  I raised that possibility in (May 25, 2015), “The Gist of that Pondering”

That’s one way to end up with very abnormal amounts of Po-210, I think.

Wondering some more… If that double neutron uptake path wasn’t how so much more Po-210 was created, then which other possibilities are there?  On this decay map, all leading to Po-210, I marked the main path way (which passed by Pb-210) in red, to two other veins, which bypass the Pb-210 state, in yellow:  [Click to enlarge]


SOURCE without annotations: periodictable.com/Isotopes/084.210/index2.full.prod.html

So, I suppose, the decay of Uranium-226 and Neptunium-226 [=Np] are potential contributors to end up with additional Po-210, without also increasing Pb-210 levels, as are U-218, U-222 (I marked the 3 Uraniums in purple), Protactinum-214 [=Pa], Pa-218 and Th-210.  I don’t know if those are/were in Fukushima fallout, though.

This is just “a note to myself” in case I start digging into this again some day.  I thought it was mention-worthy.

One of the things I find odd is that in all these alleged ‘investigations’ into what’s causing the uptick in marine life distress (from sea stars falling apart to sea lions, seals, dolphins and whales, as well as various birds), washing ashore dead or badly emacipated, is that I have yet to read about the levels of various lead isotopes found in the various tissues sampled from these animals; as well as their specific lead isotope ratios, as well as mercury levels.  Many of the radioisotopes may do harm with the radiation they emit (mostly Alpha and Beta radiation) on their way to becoming stable, but the stable states are often health hazards as well, as they tend to be heavy metals like lead and mercury.   One of the effects of lead poisoning is impaired brain function, disorientation and lack of appetite.  What if they’re not dying “because there’s no food”, but because they’re too sick to eat?

Anyways…  Just wondering.  And wondering some more…

Some lead data is available for comparison, though; albeit generaly just for ‘lead’, not the various isotopes of lead, the latter which could shed more light on the antropogenic origins having to do with, for instance, either coal burning, or nuclear fallout.  Here’s some baseline data for Sperm Whales:

h/t Ocean Alliance:


Just putting it out there.  I don’t know what’s going on either.

Debunking the ‘Impossibility’ of Ongoing Criticalities at Fukushima-Daiichi

(and then some…)

Post Office, Crestone, Colorado

Post Office, Crestone, Colorado.   Flags are still half-mast in Colorado, after the 11.13.15 Paris attacks…

South-Central Colorado — Friday, Nov. 20, 2015

In the previous post, Nov. 19, 2015, “And ‘WHAT IF’… What if ‘criticalities’ have not yet completely ended at Fukushima-Daiichi?“, I added a screenshot, which was sourced from ENEnews’ Nov 5, 2015 post, with this headline:

In typical ENEnews-style, the last part “Recriticality discussed by Japan’s top nuclar official”, wasn’t actually ‘discussed’, it was flatout denied and stated to be ‘physically impossible’.  And thát assertion is what I’m questioning in this post.

I wonder if it’s a semantic thing, and what may atually be happening would more correctly be called sub-criticatilies.  I called them “fission flare-ups“, ’cause I don’t think the fission chain rections are being sustained non-stop per se.   I suspect they come and go in waves, but I haven’t actually done much research to find out if that is even possible.  Apparently top officials of organizations that approved this mess say it’s impossible.  Should we believe them?  Believing them is what got us into this mess, isn’t it?  Think believing them will help us get out of this mess faster?   Given their track record of denial, their statement unfortunately doesn’t mean anything.   Before I continue, a word of caution:

DISCLAIMERComments  and support are welcome, but I will eliminate those I find either terribly unkind, unhelpful, misleading, overly commercial, or off-topic.   Due to my amateur-level of understanding and lack of academic training, this is going to be a bit of a ramble, a journey of learning, where I’m just sharing what I’m finding.  So… if you, the reader, consider yourself even less informed than me, I would be véry careful and not believe what I’m writing at face value, as -really- I’m just learning and sharing what I think I’m learning.   If you’re more knowledgeable and spot something in error, do please a comment.

Is it “physically impossible” to have ongoing nuclear fission reactions in the molten-down mess?  I’m not so sure that that is true.  I’m going to go out on a limb and see if I can find some clues that suggest it IS possible to still have fission happen almost a half decade later.  Now, I’m not a nuclear scientist.  As I’ve made clear before, I don’t even have a college degree.  This blog is just a journey, and it may contain errors.  This blogpost is merely my attempt to learn more about this issue.  Is it “physically impossible” for hot molten nuclear fuel to have criticalities?  See if I can walk myself through this….  I’m starting off with snippets of information that perhaps taken in all together will sketch possibilities and impossibilities.  In no particular order:

A breeder reactor is a nuclear reactor capable of generating more fissile material than it consumes. These devices are able to achieve this because their neutron economy is high enough to breed more fissile fuel than they use from fertile material such as uranium-238 or thorium-232.

So there are configurations with mixtures of nuclear fuel in which enough neutrons are created for the fission-reactions to continue without the need for new fresh fuel to be added.   More, even, there are configurations in which the amount of fissile material will actually grow over time.   Can those conditions come together after a mega-meltdown in which fresh fuel and spent fuel merged together to form a giant lava-like blob in which the heaviest elements would become more concentrated at the bottom of the molten corium over time?   These are questions the arise in my mind.

  • The decay chain of U-238 and Th-232, and you can see for yourself that some of the peculiar upticks of specific isotopes (such as Bi-214, Rn-220, Pb-210, Rn-222, etc.) of late are in there somewhere:



Th-232, with a few of its possible parents included in this excerpt:


  • What actually are ‘criticalities’ or ”fission’, and the “Effective neutron multiplication factor”?


In https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_chain_reaction is a section that I found illuminating:

Effective neutron multiplication factor

The effective neutron multiplication factor, k, is the average number of neutrons from one fission that cause another fission. The remaining neutrons either are absorbed in non-fission reactions or leave the system without being absorbed. The value of k determines how a nuclear chain reaction proceeds:

  • k < 1 (subcriticality): The system cannot sustain a chain reaction, and any beginning of a chain reaction dies out over time. For every fission that is induced in the system, an average total of 1/(1 − k) fissions occur.
  • k = 1 (criticality): Every fission causes an average of one more fission, leading to a fission (and power) level that is constant. Nuclear power plants operate with k = 1 unless the power level is being increased or decreased.
  • k > 1 (supercriticality): For every fission in the material, it is likely that there will be “k” fissions after the next mean generation time. The result is that the number of fission reactions increases exponentially, according to the equation e^{(k-1)t/\Lambda}, where t is the elapsed time. Nuclear weapons are designed to operate under this state. There are two subdivisions of supercriticality: prompt and delayed.

When describing kinetics and dynamics of nuclear reactors, and also in the practice of reactor operation, the concept of reactivity is used, which characterizes the deflection of reactor from the critical state. ρ=(k-1)/k.   […]

In a nuclear reactor, k will actually oscillate from slightly less than 1 to slightly more than 1, due primarily to thermal effects (as more power is produced, the fuel rods warm and thus expand, lowering their [neutron] capture ratio, and thus driving k lower). This leaves the average value of k at exactly 1.  Delayed neutrons play an important role in the timing of these oscillations.

In an infinite medium, the multiplication factor may be described by the four factor formula; in a non-infinite medium, the multiplication factor may be described by the six factor formula.

Prompt and delayed supercriticality

Not all neutrons are emitted as a direct product of fission; some are instead due to the radioactive decay of some of the fission fragments. The neutrons that occur directly from fission are called “prompt neutrons,” and the ones that are a result of radioactive decay of fission fragments are called “delayed neutrons.”

The fraction of neutrons that are delayed is called β, and this fraction is typically less than 1% of all the neutrons in the chain reaction.

The delayed neutrons allow a nuclear reactor to respond several orders of magnitude more slowly than just prompt neutrons would alone. Without delayed neutrons, changes in reaction rates in nuclear reactors would occur at speeds that are too fast for humans to control.

The region of supercriticality between k = 1 and k = 1/(1-β) is known as delayed supercriticality (or delayed criticality). It is in this region that all nuclear power reactors operate.  The region of supercriticality for k > 1/(1-β) is known as prompt supercriticality (or prompt criticality), which is the region in which nuclear weapons operate.

The change in k needed to go from critical to prompt critical is defined as a dollar.” [end quote from Wikipedia, retrieved on Nov. 19, 2015, with my emphasis added]

What I speculate may be possible is that the “effective neutron multiplication factor, k” (described above) may still be oscillating between just above zero (where most neutrons get absorbed or escape and there’s just not enough neutron flux to cause fission reactions, or only very quickly ending chains) and de facto subcriticalities  (k < 1), where the molten-down blob cannot sustain a chain reaction either, but they do occur, and although they fizzle out too, these chain reactions don’t die out right away, and would be responsible for giving rise to fission and activation products.  Those in turn, when vented, would rise very high quickly due to their extreme heat and would be detectable in tiny trace amounts where jet stream wind patterns slow down.   (Or so goes my hypothesis…)   Perhaps every now and then a chain reaction may take off, and even grow for a little bit, but then the generated heat makes the fissioning area expand and the chain ends again.   What would make it start back up again is when there’s a sufficient amount of delayed neutrons from radioactive decay inside the blob.  I don’t know what the configuration of decaying isotopes, heat and density would need to be for this to be possible, but it doesn’t seem to be flat-out “impossible”.  It doesn’t even seem flat-out impossible for (sustained) ongoing-fission, either.  In the absolut worst case, some kind of “breeder reactor” would have been formed, but while perhaps not entirely impossible (?), that might be far less likely than some kind of k-oscillation that includes fission flare-ups.

On the Woods Hole Oceanograpic Institute’s website there’s a video with really bad audio (@ http://www.whoi.edu/page.do?pid=108196&cl=87413&article=141569&tid=5122), in which top experts made some remarkable statements (after 38 minutes in), as relayed by ENEnews on October 27th, 2014.  I listened and the transcript is correct:

Of course, if the fissioning didn’t stop, as is pretty darn obvious from the releases of I-131 that went on for much longer than they should have, then that means that the molten-down lava-like corium had a nuclear fuel configuration (fuel, spent fuel, decay products, heat, density, amount,…) that allowed for the neutron flux to get intense enough in an medium with plenty of fissile fuel to cause -at least- subcriticalities.  Could as well call ‘m “criticality flare-ups”.   What if the corium/coria melted down deep enough to be so too far out of reach, or utterly unapproachable, that any added boron, graphite, or other neutron absorbers simply never even have reached the problem section of the corium?  And thus, what is so “impossible” about ongoing criticalities, still, now in 2015?

What if the neutron flux was so insanely intense in the first week or weeks of the disaster that it altered the composition of much of the fuel that melted down.  What if that irradiated mixture of new decaying products and various activation products, which due to their decay also changes composition over time, are now actually creating a sector inside a corium that is volitile enough to see renewed cycles of subcriticalities?

I found this interesting EuroSafe document, “Criticality Safety in the Waste Management of Spent Fuel from NPPs” by Robert Kilger:

In it is a graph I find quite amazing: due to the decay of radioisotopes, the effective neutron multiplication factor, k (described above), creates an oscillation over thousands of years, with k going up and down depending on which isotopes are in which stage of their decay.  The time-scale is logarithmic:

Pondering over this made me wonder: are there also radiosiotopes that emit lots of neutrons as their mode of radioactive decay?   Turns out, yes: Californium-252 is an example.

Cf252Now, is it possible that additional Cf-252 was created at Fukushima?  It would likely have happened during the early heavy neutron bombardment period, and thus some of this Cf-252 may have ended up in the molten coriums.  Seems rather plausibe, actually.   So, IF that were the case, then the neutron-spewing decay of Cf-252, in an environemnt full of some of the heaviest isotopes of Uranium, Pluonium, Neptunium, Americium, etc. of all places, would certainly cause some fission reactions, wouldn’t it?  I mean, that’s apparently one of the ways fission reactors are started up.  What if some kind of subcriticalities-no-subcriticalities oscillation has been occuring?    I have yet to learn more about the kinds of barns not used for stacking hay in to see if this is mathematically possible, but it seems this would be one way to end up with a neutron source in the rubble that didn’t just go away.

I think it’s possible, because:  Spent (irradiated) fuel rods always contain Plutonium, and on top of that, Unit 3 contained MOX fuel (mixed oxides of Uranium and Plutonium), and thus, most likely, a lot more Plutonium was present in this meltdown than in any nuclear meltdown accident in the past.

I read that when Plutonium is irradiated, you end up with Curium, and if you bombard Curium with alpha particles, then you’ll end up with some Californium.  There was Plutonium, there was heavy neutron bombardment, and there was and still is tons of alpha decay going on, so no shortage of alpha particles either.

This should shed some light on how significant it would be to have Cf-252 in the rubble:

From http://education.jlab.org/itselemental/ele098.html: “Californium-252, an isotope with a half-life of about 2.6 years, is a very strong neutron source. One microgram (0.000001 grams) of californium-252 produces 170,000,000 neutrons per minute.

Would it be possible to start out with Pu-239/240/241 and in an extreme neutron bombardment environment end up with at least a little bit of Cf-252?  That’s seems quite the step-up…  But there didn’t seem to be no shortage of neutrons nor alpha emitters, and there were many TONS of fuel that melted down, so… why not?

Let’s see… Synthesis of Curium (via Wikipedia):

To recap, there’s two ways to end up with curium in a neutron bombardment environment: :  Uranium-238 turns into Curium-242, or Plutonium-239 turns into Curium-244.

– When Uranium-238 is bombarded with neutrons this leads to the creation of some Curium-242 by way of a double neutron uptake and a beta decay in these steps:

  • U-238 + neutron -> U-239
  • U-239 + neutron -> Am-241
  • Am-241 beta decays to Cm-242

Or, Plutonium-239 is bombarded with móre neutrons and this leads to the creation of some Curium-244 by way of these steps:

  • Pu-239 + neutrons -> Pu-243
  • Pu-243 beta decas to Am-243
  • Am-243 + neutron -> Am-244
  • Am-244 beta decays to Cm-244

In addition:

  • Cm-244 in turn alpha decays to Pu-240    (The main decay chain goes: Cm-244 -> Pu-240 -> U-236 -> Th-232 ->Ra-228 -> Ac-228 -> Th-228 -> Ra-224 -> Rn-220 -> ect. to stable Pb-208, and a side-decay-branch to stable Pb-206.)
  • Some Cm-244 + neutrons -> Cm-247, Cm-248, …

So, given the heavy neutron bombardment in the beginning, it is near-certain that some of both Cm-242 and Cm-244 were created in the molten corium.

Now how would one get from Cm-242 or Cm-244 to Californium-252?  Well, it says here, @ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Californium#Production:

Prolonged irradiation of americium, curium, and plutonium with neutrons produces milligram amounts of californium-252 and microgram amounts of californium-249.

and: “As of 2006, curium isotopes 244 to 248 are irradiated by neutrons in special reactors [or under similarly conducive conditions?] to produce primarily californium-252 with lesser amounts of isotopes 249 to 255.   […]   Three californium isotopes with significant half-lives are produced, requiring a total of 15 neutron captures by uranium-238 without nuclear fission or alpha decay occurring during the process.  Californium-253 is at the end of a production chain that starts with uranium-238, includes several isotopes of plutonium, americium, curium, berkelium, and the californium isotopes 249 to 253 (see diagram):

Well, to repeat from above, you only need 1 microgram (0.000001 grams) of Cf-252 to produce 170,000,000 neutrons PER MINUTE.  (That information is reportedly found in The encyclopedia of the chemical elements, edited by Clifford A. Hampel. Published/Created New York, Reinhold Book Corp. [1968] Library of COngress # 68029938.)

We know for a fact that there was a substantial amount of Plutonium isotopes in the mess that melted down, particularly at Unit 3.  Even though this is a very heavy element that is not volatile like iodine, tellurium or cesium, it was nevertheless even detected many miles from the Fukshima-Daiichi disaster site.  –> See, for example, the scientific evidence in the article, Isotopic evidence of plutonium release into the environment from the Fukushima DNPP accident  (Nature, Scientific Reports 2, Article number: 304 (2012) / doi:10.1038/srep00304  pubished online on March 8, 2012.).

From the same aforemention EuroSafe document, with Cf-252 added by me:


Given how heavy Cf-252 is, it likely concentrates at the bottom of the molten corium with all the other fission-prone heavy weights…  and, so I speculate, this could be one way of ending up with subcriticalities long after they “should have ended”.  So, what if, at least in the beginning, enough Cf-252 was created that its neutron-spewing presence continues to create both neutron activation products (perhaps even contributing to the peculiarly high presence of activation products Co-60 and Sb-124/125 ?), as well as fission events, giving rise to trace amounts of I-131, Cs-134, etc.)

So, in short: it doesn’t seem impossible whatsoever.  It all depends on what happened in the beginning.  Was there, or was there not what could be called an EXTREME heavy neutron bombardment environment when the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophe began?  All evidence points to that having been the case.

According to “Geochemical Journal, Vol. 46, pp. 335 to 339, 2012: An estimation of the radioactive 35 S emitted into the atmospheric from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant by using a numerical simulation global transport” [H/T ENEnews, Jan. 13, 2015], the neutron flux that reached the seawater injected in the reactors emitted “5.2 × 1021 slow neutrons m–2 sec–1″ [m–2 sec–1 = per sq. meter per second].

Neutron flux levels deeper within the molten corium(s), which the injected water perhaps never even reached (as the high heat evaporated the water long before it could get close, I recon) may have been faster and/or reached significantly higher levels.

Seems rather possible, if not quite plausible, to have ended up with some Cf-252.  Over 25% of the Cf-252 created in March-April 2011, would still be present in the molten corium, even if no additional Cf-252 was created since  (Cf-252’s half life is 2.64 years).

  • I had a look back at some of the data in my lichen and rainwater samples I had analyzed in June (2015), and re-read a few things in the related blog posts.  Among the ones flagged ‘unknown’ are a few that stood out significantly above background, such as these in the lichen sample, about which I wrote, (see below this raw data sheet):

At the time, July 10, 2015, in “An Attempt to Identify the ‘Unknown’-Flagged keV Decay Energies in the Lichen Sample Gammaspectroscopy“, of the 3 most pronounced unknown detections, I wrote the following about the second (the 77.06 keV signal) and the last highlighted (the 1765.12 keV signal); [edited w/ new emphasis):


  • 77.06  keV    —>  Antimony-122 (intermediate decay state Sb-122m)

Because 76.0595 keV sure rounds nicely to 77.06 keV.    SOURCES:

Again… that neutron activation weirdness.  What’s up with that?  See also the mention of Sb-122 in http://www.hiroshimasyndrome.com/fukushima-and-cesium.html 

To quote, “[…] Relatively few of the bomb fallout isotopes come from nuclear fission. In fact, most radioactive materials in a bomb’s fallout are caused by the process called “neutron activation”. Neutrons are the only type of radiation that can make other atoms radioactive. The soils, buildings, and other materials pulverized by a bomb’s explosion are instantly engulfed in the neutron field caused by the detonation, making radioactive isotopes from those elements that were not radioactive before the blast.

Some of the prominent bomb-fallout isotopes are Sodium-24, Chromium-51, Manganese-54, Iron-59, Cobalt-60, Copper-64, Antimony-122 and Antimony-124, Tantalum-180 and 182, and Lead-203.(1) The half-lives vary from as low as 8 hours (Ta-180) and as long as 5.3 years (Co-60).   Just for the record, a small amount of Carbon-14 is formed by the bomb, but its quantity is miniscule. Regardless, none of the bomb-fallout isotopes listed above are produced by power plant reactors.  By comparison, bomb-spawned Cs-137 is literally a trace relative to the volumes of the above-listed bomb fallout isotopes. […]”

AND, perhaps the strongest detection:

  • 1765.12  keV  —>  Bismuth-214 (Bi-214)

SOURCES:   http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML0702/ML070230274.pdf”


It’s taking me some time to take in and grasp the significance of all these bits and pieces…  I didn’t know yet about the significance of Bi-214 back then.  I was starting to get onto it this spring when looking into the Chernobyl wildfires (See May 2, 2015, “(More ADDITIONS) Bismuth-214 as a Fallout Indicator? Systematic Omissions: More Evidence of EURDEP Hiding Data when it Matters Most…“), but like so many snippets of data and news from here and there, it had already forgotten about Bi-214 when one of its more rare decay energies appeared flagged as unknown in my own data.  Not just mere part of “natural radon progeny”:  Look at the higher parents in the decay chains its part of in http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/083.214/index2.full.prod.html.  Anyhow…  Here’s what I’m looking at:

We got the recent Finnish and German detections, both in spring 2015 and just recently in October 2015 with quantifiable validated detections of Cobalt-60, Manganese-54, Actinium-225 & 227, Cesium-134 & 137, Zirconium-97, and Thallium-202.

In my own rainwater and lichen samples (See Aug. 1, 2015, “Synopsis / Improved Version: ‘Mainland USA June 14 2015 Radioactive Rain & Lichen Data Revisited,’” as uncertain as they are, there is still a faint signal that suggest trace precence of  Antimony-124,  Strontium-89, Ruthenium-106, Cesium-134/137 and even Iodine-131 and  Cobalt-57, and with the unknown-flagged ones included, also Antimony-122, probably more Bismuth-214 than thought, and a bunch of traces of very unusual ones.

Half of those detections here as well as in Europe are activation products more associated with a nuclear bomb detonations.  That may seem bizarre, but it’s not to be dismissed.  Here’s another thing I haven’t written much about… I guess I do actually truly suffer from forms of ‘cognitive dissonance’ myself at times.  There are some things I have a hard time accepting, just due to associations and implications that I don’t really want to accept.


One of these things that I have had a hard time accepting is that:  It is quite likely that one of the explosions at Fukushima-Daiichi, the one at its Unit 3, was not a mere hydrogen explosion, but -for real – a prompt criticality (a mini, but actual nuclear explosion).  It appears that the detections actually confirm this further.  The nuclear blast at MOX-filled Reactor Unit 3 at Fukushima-Daiichi  did mainly 2 things:

1) The blast blew an unprecedented amount of nuclear fuel sky high, of which an unknown amount fell or washed out into the Pacific Ocean; &

2) the blast sent out a very intense massive neutron flux at the time of detonation, which  irradiated the rubble, creating all kinds of activation products and nuclear transmutations that dramatically altered the coriums that melted further down.

Some sources re. likely ‘nuclear explosion’ @:

Quoted from the latter, TIME Magazine online Science section, March 30, 2011:

“[…] Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) had observed a neutron beam about 1.5 km away from the plant.  Bursts of neutrons in large quantities can only come from fission so Dalnoki-Veress, a physicist, was faced with an alarming possibility: had portions of one of Fukushima’s reactors gone critical?

To nuclear workers, there are few events more fearful than a criticality accident. In such a scenario, the fissile material in a reactor core–be it enriched uranium or plutonium–undergoes a spontaneous chain reaction, releasing a flash of aurora-blue light and a surge of neutron radiation; the gamma rays, neutrons and radioactive fission products emitted during criticality are highly dangerous to humans. Criticality occurs so rapidly–within a few fractions of a second–and so unpredictably that it can suddenly kill workers without warning. There have been 60 criticality incidents worldwide since 1945. The most recent occurred in Japan in 1999, at an experimental reactor in Tokai, when a beam of neutrons killed two workers, hospitalized dozens of emergency workers and nearby residents, and forced hundreds of thousands to remain indoors for 24 hours.

Dalnoki-Veress did not see any further reference to a neutron release. But two days after the Kyodo agency report, on March 25, TEPCO made public measurements of different isotopes contributing to the extremely high measured radioactivity in the seawater used to cool reactor No 1. Again, a piece of the data jumped out at Dalnoki-Veress: the high prevalence of the chlorine-38 (Cl-38) isotope. Cl-38 has a half-life of 37 minutes, so would decay so rapidly as to be of little long-term safety concern. But it’s very presence troubled Dalnoki-Veress. Chlorine-37 (Cl-37) is part of natural chlorine that is present in seawater in the form of ordinary table salt.  In order to form Cl-38, however, neutrons must interact with CL-37.  Dalnoki-Verress did some calculations and came to the conclusion that  the only possible way this neutron interaction could have occurred was the presence of transient criticalities in pockets of melted fuel in the reactor core.

[…] he published those calculation in a paper for the blog ArmsControlWonk. The paper makes clear that if a criticality accident occurred at Fukishima, it could happen again […]”

The study, “WHAT WAS THE CAUSE OF THE HIGH Cl-38 RADIOACTIVITY IN  THE  FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI REACTOR #1 -F. Dalnoki-Veress, March 28, 2011” is found @ http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/files/2011/03/Cause_of_the_high_Cl38_Radioactivity.pdf

I may be slow, but at least it is beginning to sink in…  And maybe my hunch has been right all along…  (See also June 2015’s Radiological Emergency – Northern Hemisphere – RED ALERT !, or further back, July 31, 2013, Red Alert – Fukushima-Daiichi NPP Crisis: EXTREME Radioactive Water Leaking into Ground; Unprecedented Radioactive Contamination of Pacific Ocean.

So… come to think of it….

  • The early TEPCO data from 2013, with massive amounts of Co-60, Mn-54 and Sb-124 in stored contaminated water is more consistent with the effects of a nuclear bomb blast rather than a normal meltdown. (Screenshot of that data in here)
  • My very own detection of Co-60 in a Japanese Kelp sample (see here), while Cesium-134/137 was not detected in that sample, is more consistent with the effects of a nuclear bomb blast rather than a normal meltdown (see quote above in green sourced from here).  Same with my detection of Sb-124 in Colorado rainwater (see here) that likely blew in with the jet stream from Japan.
  • Both the Finnish and German detections in Spring and Autumn 2015 (see here), including traces of Co-60, Mn-54, Zr-97, make more sense when Fukushima is still releasing radiosiotopes from highly irradiated coriums that are still fissioning at times.

My tentative conclusion:   

  • 1) It is totally POSSIBLE to have ongoing criticalities 5 years later.
  • 2)  You can’t say that it’s impossible unless you know all the details of the make-up and conditions inside the corium.  They don’t know these things.

I think they are operating in some sort of a panic, as this disaster is evolving in uncharted territory, and they’ve chosen early on to have a specific narrative (primarily to protect financial investments), a completely bogus narrative it turns out, but it seems they aim not to deviate from it, even if evidence mounts that they’re lying.

Meanwhile the mystery carnage continues…

And ‘WHAT IF’… What if ‘criticalities’ have not yet completely ended at Fukushima-Daiichi?

http://wp.me/puwO9-4jj , Crestone, Colorado (USA), Nov. 19, 2015

At the end of October, in my Oct. 27 post, “EURDEP data suggests something serious happened. Aside from data gaps and data delays, highest radiation levels in at least one year observed in many parts of Europe…“, in regards with the spikes in the Oct 23-27 period,  I had written (at the very end of that post),

“[…] If the origin of this spike is a new accident somewhere, if it was the innitial ground-touching cloud-spike, then data gaps will appear in about two weeks as more of the cloud will begin to touch ground level. […]”

Interestingly, that appears to be what happened, albeit more like in a week to ten days, rather than 2 weeks.  With “new accident” I meant, as opposed to it being Fukushima fallout released in 2011-2012 that is only now reaching ground monitors.  Meanwhile I consider Fukushima-Daiichi the most likely source of the recent radiation increases again. 

Maybe it’s too early to tell, but as is evidenced by much even greater upticks and unusually long data gaps, (see a synopsis of recent documentation in last night’s  !-> Nov. 18, 2015, “Recap of Oct.-Nov. 2015 Major Radiation Event. Ongoing?“, it seems this is exactly what went down in these past few weeks. 

Thus, based on observing what happened to the measurements of individual monitors over the years since March 2011, my impression is that what was released was released fairly recently, recently enough to show trace upticks of I-131, Cs-134 and Zr-97 during a 3-week period, just like (!->) in spring 2015, when véry similar detactions were made during a similarly short period as well.  The unusually high upticks of Radon-progency might very well be due to the decay of Uranium and Plutonium in the rubble the gasses are being vented from.

IF (and that’s quite the leap with so little data, but IF – big if -…) if this fallout cloud truly came from Fukushima-Daiichi (F1) every time I’ve suspected this to be the case, then… we might actually be dealing here with some kind of “breeder reactor gone wild underground, meaning that it would have sufficient density of fission material in the molten blob underground, and an -at least at times- sufficient neutron flux, to continue to create its own nuclear fuel.  Theoretically, this could go unabated ‘FOREVER’.  It is the true ultimate “China Syndrome nightmare” possibility.   Uncontained, over time, meaning decades, centuries, millenia, this will make life miserable at first (mid-21st through 23rd centuries), and if left spewing radioisotopes, it very well might eventually kill most higher life forms, such as mammals, humanity included.

Can you understand why I hope I’m wrong, and simultaneously have a really hard time “just letting this go“.  ‘Cause what if?  Seriously: what if?   That the nuclear industry lies is a given.  We know that by now…

Alright… here:  This recent letter in The Japan Times (Nov. 4, 2015) is amazing for the tiny tidbit of information it lets out of the bag (see more below this screenshot):

To quote from this letter, by Brian Victoria in Kyoto, to Olympics Minister, Toshiaki Endo – [my emphasis and excerpting]:

“[…] At this point it may be apt to recall the warning of 13th-century Zen master Dogen: “If there is the slightest difference in the beginning, the result will be a distance greater than heaven is from Earth.”

[…]  Unfortunately, Zen master Dogen didn’t explain what to do when you find yourself in a spot where heaven is already far removed from Earth — or the truth, in this instance. Fortunately, the former Japanese ambassador to Switzerland, Mitsuhei Murata, recently proposed an eminently reasonable solution. It is time, he says, for Japan to stage an “honorable retreat” from hosting the 2020 Olympics while there is still time to select and prepare an alternative site.

[…]   Murata’s major concern, however, was not about the past but the present and future. […]  Murata’s gravest concern is a number of troubling indications of recurring criticality in one or more of the reactors at Fukushima No. 1. For example, he notes that in December 2014, both radioactive iodine-131 and tellurium-132 were reported as having been detected in Takasaki city, Gunma Prefecture.  Given the short half-lives of these radioactive particles, their presence could not be the result of the original meltdowns at Fukushima.”

If you sort through the data, as I do every now and then, you may also recall spikes in Iodine-131 in November 2014 in Europe (!!!–> See Jan. 31, 2015, “DATA of ‘Fallout Signatures’ on Radiation Monitors Suggest Fukushima Still Going Re-Critical Underground At Times. Airborne Fallout Continues To Come Down Across the Northern Hemisphere.); as well as the <MDC (unquantifiable) signal detection of Telurium-132 and, more importantly, the various validated quantifiable detections of highly suspect radioisotopes in Spring 2015 (!!!–> See, June 6, 2015, “Pink Unicorns beach themselves on the shores of Lake Dystopiaand !!!–> June 7, 2015,Yup… Fukushima is Still Fissioning – A Nullschool Wind Data Analysis of May 2015 EURDEP-Finland/Germany Radioactive Air Samples.).  The latest spate of peculiar detections (!!!–> see previous post and links, including !!!–> Oct. 28, 2015’s “Detected in Helsinki Finland in October 2015: Cesium-134 & 137, Actinium-225 & 227, Cobalt-60. + Detected in Hamburg, Germany: Zirconium-97.), unfortunately, all fitting with the allegation I’ve made for awhile now…

To close with another quote from that letter: 

“Murata is not opposed to the Tokyo Olympic Games per se, but finds them a major distraction to what needs to be done immediately namely, gathering the best minds and expertise from around the world and, with the full support of the Japanese government, doing everything humanly possible to bring Fukushima No. 1 truly “under control.”  This will help to ensure the Pacific Ocean is no longer used as an open sewer for Fukushima-produced radiation, and also address the ongoing pain and distress of the residents of Fukushima Prefecture and beyond. […]”

Thank you, Murata. I concur.

SO… “Anyways…”  if it truly were the case, namely that F1 is still undergoing fission events at the end of 2014, in spring 2015 and now again in autumn 2015, as I have been suspecting based on radioisotope detections at the other side of the planet during times when jet stream wind patterns could very well have delivered them thát quickly… If this truly is still happening almost a half decade after the catastrophe began (THINK !:  If it was true in Dec. 2014, there is no reason for it to not be possible in 2015!), then that implies that there may no end in sight to these underground fission-related fallout-release cycles.  A couple nuclear-industrial burbs per year, is that what we’re looking at?  The situation might truly be as mindblowingly serious as I sense it is.

In any case, I doubt a solution can be found without pacifying the very discord of deception embedded in the archetypal dynamic that underlies this situation.  

In other words:

Unless the nuclear industry comes clear and tells the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, this beautiful world may be bestroyed.  

For real.

Recap of Oct.-Nov. 2015 Major Radiation Event. Ongoing?

Colorado Rocky Mountains – Nov. 17, 2015 – 9 pm (-8C/17F outside)

In case you missed it, my blog was turned invisible-to-the-public for over a month and during this period I documented radiation upticks that suggest something very serious happened somewhere “upwind”, which seems to be “east of North America”… in the past month, maybe longer.   Personally, I suspect a cover-up of ongoing fission flare-ups (criticalities) and/or unreported venting of underground gas build-ups at Fukushima-Daiichi, although I have no proof for that.  All I have is detections and wind maps.  I am not an expert and do not insist you believe me whatsoever.  You may take it as entertainment, or take it seriously and use it as a springboard for your own research and reporting.   (If you refer to my findings, please only quote and link, though.  I’m allergic to sploggers.  Thanks.)

As a matter of introduction, I recommend this great 2011 video by Dr. Kaltofen explaining some basics about Fukushima fallout:

Most of the blog posts from the past month and a half documented the unusual radiation upticks, spikes, widespread data gaps, network outages and peculiar detections of specific radioisotopes. (List of blog posts further below)


An annotated screenshot from my Nov. 13, 2015 blog post combing Nullschool jetstream wind data with radiation data from US Radnet and EURDEP. Strikingly, most of the time, when I trace an uptick on a monitor back, going ‘upwind’, I cross over Fukushima. CLICK IMAGE for post ths image was repeated from.


Several distinct uptick days can be found across the planet, in many places setting records and often corresponding with data gaps on other monitors.   In this composite of 2 monitors in Belgium, a data gap at Beauvechain includes the time of a spike at nearby Braine l~Alleud.

This blog post begins with a synopsis of some of the recent observations. The past month’s blog posts have much more, such as screenshots of data & tons of graphs.  Since the journey delving into this was step by step and somewhat erratical, if you really want to know what I documented and wrote about that, I’d start AFTER Nov. 17, when I declared (in vain, again…) that I was “done blogging, and browse through the almost two dozen following posts as the picture that a very serious release of radioactivity took place, becomes more apparent.  

“The event” (major upticks and peculiar detections in Oct. and Nov. 2015, just as was the case in spring 2015) may still be ongoing; so the second part of this post gives a couple observations from the radiation scene in the last few days (pre-Nov. 16, 2015). 

Some highlights:

  • Thorium-232 detected, Oct 6-8, 2015, @ Kotka, Finland
  • Thalium-202 detected, Oct. 7-8, 2015, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Thorium-232 detected, Oct. 8-9, 2015, as well as Oct 18-25, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Zirconium-97 detected, Oct. 25-26, 2015, @ Nürnberg, Germany
  • Cesium-134 detected, Oct. 25-26, 2015, @ Nürnberg, Germany
  • Highest spikes in Gamma and Beta radiation are measured (or allowed to be seen) in many countries between Oct. 20 – 27, and again in the first week of November, including in the United States, Europe and even Australia.
  • A very distinct period on uradmonitor appears to have been due to data processing (see Nov. 8’s Another Round of Looking into Recent Radiological Disturbaces.).
  • A slight Cesium-137 uptick is accompanied by a slight uptick in supposedly all-natural Radon-222, Oct. 22, 2015, @ Nicosia, Cyprus
  • Cesium-137 uptick corresponding with Be-7 uptick, Oct. 16-19, 2015, @ Ivalo, Finland
  • Actinium-225 & Actinium-227 detected, Oct 9-10, 2015, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Cobalt-60 & Manganese-54 detected, Oct. 8-12, 2015, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Cesium-134 & Cesium-137 detected, Oct. 8-12, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Cesium-137 uptick corresponding with Be-7 uptick, Nov. 2-3, 2015, @ Helsinki, Finland
  • Record high of Radon-220 measured, first week of Nov. 2015, @ Batina, Croatia.  Graphs, which the previous blog posts are packed with, make the fact that was happened is truly UNUSUAL much more clear.  Here’s a half year of Rn-220 data (the blog post (see list further below) has the full record going back to 2009):


  • Record high of Bismuth-214, first week of Nov. 2015, @ Arkona, Germany,
  • Many year-record-highs were measured for Alpha and Beta radiation, in some areas, including in Romania & Poland.
  • Lost of data gaps, including long ones in Sweden, Iceland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Russia, Lithuania,…  even some data gaps in Belgium (very rare!).

A vein of investigation that I don’t know is being explored much (out there in academic research land…) is looking into the upticks of so-called “naturally ocurring” radioisotopes (such as various kinds of Bismuth, Lead, Thorium, etc.) and finding out if they are perhaps not natural, but rather caused by the decay of man-made, or at least artificially launched, radioisotopes, such as due to releases from the ongoing Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophe, including radioisotopes of Uranium, Neptunium, Americium, Plutonium, as well as various activation products (including radioisotopes of Cobalt and Antimony).  I’ve pointed at this possibility (of this being a factor in environmental consequences) before, most recently when looking at the decay chain of Pu-238, which passes through U-234, Rn-222, Bi-214, Pb-210, Po-210, to name a few.).

The intense alpha radiation of decay of Polonium-210, for instance, is something I’ve brought up as a suggestion in regards to the mysterious die-offs of various animals in primarily the Northern Hemisphere.  I can’t say it’s a factor.  I don’t know.  But have a look at all of the ways to end up with Polonium-210, and then wonder why ‘experts’ would make statements comparing artificial levels (of Cesium-137, for example) with (higher levels) of “naturally ocurring Polonium-210″…   Since what I’m pointing at is well-known to university-trained scientists, it’s hard not to suspect that these handful of seemingly reputable scientists are making these claims to intentionally deceive the public, as part of a well-orchestrated public relations campaign.   You know what I mean? 

Re. Po-210:  Move your mouse/pointer around to see the whole @ http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/084.210/index2.full.prod.html


These blog posts, all written while my blog was invisible (Oct 5 – Nov 15) go into some more details:

For more, see also my Nuclear Blog Posts Archive (which needs to be updated)

And nothing stops you from further investigating this “high strangeness” (which the mainstream media so far hasn’t said a word about) yourself, and share your findings online as well.  There’s my page with various worldwide Online Radiation Monitors, etc., that could get you started.  I use ‘Grab’ to make screenshots, and edit those in ‘Preview’.  A wordpress blog is as easy as writing an email; you don’t need to know anything to blog.

  • Isn’t it ‘interesting’ that a so-called “naturally ocurring” radioisotope, like Radon-222 would rise in perfect correlation with a 100% artificial radioisotope like Cesium-137?  On the island of Cyprus no less.  I noted the correlated uptick on Nov. 10, but since then the measured has nearly doubled:

Rn222_Cs137_NicosiaCYPRUS_1month_Nov18_2015This is the highest uptick of Cs-137 since November 2014, when fallout clouds, which then also contained much Iodine-131, entered Europe from across the Atlantic (and similarly traced back across the Pacific with the fast-moving jet stream, to have likely originated at the Fuksushima-Daiichi Cauldrons of Hell – See Jan. 2015’s “Did Germany just get a Massive Amount of Fukushima Fallout and “No One Noticed”? (A Eurdep-Nullschool investigation of the Nov. 16, 2014 radiation Upticks…)”.

At the end of this post, you can see the Nullschool wind map for 250 hPa, showing Cyprus in a slow-down zone in the extension of the jet-stream…

  • Speaking of Iodine-131… there’s been curiously no detections in the recent spate of scandinavian upticks.  Detections of I-131 often make the news, because they indicate a véry recent release from an artificial fissioning event.   On the Nicosia, Cyprus detector (0037, that one), there actually is a véry minor, but visible mini-uptick of Iodine-131 this past week, reaching just slightly out from above a fairly stable background level (the latter must be due to all the reactors in Europe leaking tiny bits al the time).   Here graphed together with T-BETA-ART (which I think means Total Beta radiation from artificial radioisotopes) for the past 3 months:


It’s not much of an uptick, but it’s curious, as it coincides with an uptick in Cesium-137, Beta, as well as Radon-220 and Radon-222.   Apparently, it seems there’s the tiniest of I-131 trace in this most recent fallout cloud as well.  And thát is extremely significant too, unfortunately.

To see if I could find any more evidence of this, I had a look at the I-131 monitor @ CERN in Switzerland.  It shows detections of I-131 véry often, and I take them to be either medical or from refueling events and such.  But when graphing the past 9 months, you can see that Cesium-137 quite often reaches above 4E-07 Bq/m^3 (the arbitrary dotted red line I added to the top graph), including (data gaps nonwithstanding) the whole time since late September 2015.  Iodine-131, however, only reaches above 1.2E-06 Bq/m^3 (the arbitrary dotted red line I added to the bottom graph) áfter mid-Sept. 2015:

From mid February through mid May 2015, notiable upticks in Cs-137 (possibly in part due to the Chernobyl wildfires this past spring), and no quantifyable I-131 detections (NONE):Cs137_I131_3mo_Feb_May_CERNFrom mid-May through mid-August, a few Cs-137 detections, and two small detections of I-131 between mid-May and early June:Cs137_I131_3mo_May_Aug_CERNSo far, for these last past 3 months from mid-August to mid-November 2015, HALF of the I-131 tests have come back positive, including the last 3, with 2 measurements (one in the second half of September, the other the second week of October) show the highest detections of I-131 in the 9 past months:Cs137_I131

The differences are tiny, but when taken together with all the other peculiar detections, perhaps it could mean that there was a tiny bit of I-131 in the fallout clouds that circled the globe recently.   Unless I’m afflicted by a minor case of “confirmation bias”, it would mean (with very little room for doubt actually, given the short half-life of I131, and long distances the cloud obviously traveled) that a major leak or serious nuclear accident happened somewhere, or… it could mean that Fukushima REALLY is thát much out of control.  And all the “news updates” they’ve been feeding the parroting media is just that: an experiment in perception management, likely coordinated by well-connected public relations experts.     If I come up with a way to spin this hunch into some kind of  ‘positive happy thought’, I’ll letcha know.

Also notice the data gap: no testing results for this first half of November (yet?).

In other news:

  • Lithuania came back online:


  • Czech Republic is back online too:


  • A quick look at Total GAMMA for the last 48 hours (checked at Nov. 18, 2015, 1am  Mountain Time) shows an area standing out with a core of upticks from Southern Belgium, through Luxembourg into Germany:


Just happens to be along the path where the jet stream blows over Europe, with slow downs in the air layers below it…http-:earth.nullschool.net:#2015:11:18:0000Z:wind:isobaric:500hPa:orthographic=7.87,46.71,1024

On Nullschool, you can also go a bit into the future (modeled), and it looks like that the slow-down will be from Northern France to Greece.  In the next few days, I would expect to see upticks in the Alps and probably in Macedonia, with “glitch dots” (or data gaps of no more than a few hours all over the place) in France and Italy.   Will the monitors around Ispra in northern Italy show anything unusual before the weekend?

I might go check back this weekend…

Denver SPIKE, Colorado Springs DATA GAP.

Another example of data rigging through systematic omissions… 
  • Denver, Colorado:


  • The very same time period, including the Nov. 11 spike measured in Denver, here (shown below) as seen on the Colorado Springs, Colorado Radnet monitor:


Any questions?

  • Grand Junction, Colorado:  NO DATA  (monitor turned off)

Good they have a good disclaimer, eh?!  Otherwise, I suppose, they could be taken to court on serious corruption charges.  Or what else would you call it when an agency in charge of environmental protection works so closely in cahoots with the nuclear industry that the data processing software is apparently programmed to hide anything that could hint of there being something seriously wrong?


PS:    I am not able to confirm a sign of integrity in these EPA data either.

Reason for my checking was a jet-stream-altitude wind slow zone, which I’m under the impression to often correspond with radiation upticks (or data gaps for that matter).  If the suspected mega-spikes were natural, there would be no reason to hide them, right?  The fact alone that data is hidden from public view exactly at such times that I would expect Fukushima-related spikes is telling, isn’t it?   My suspicion remains, as it has been for years now, that this is due to the ongoing Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophy, which isn’t just leaking into the Pacific Ocean, but continues to spew untold amounts into the atmosphere as well.


Now go ahead and deny this.  And make sure to be ‘baffled’ and ‘puzzled’, and ‘at a loss’ for the ‘mysterious’ consequences to fauna and flora in various hotspot fallout zones across the Northern Hemisphere… which, sadly, are simply ‘to be expected‘ when tons and tons of nuclear waste is dumped into the environment on a daily basis for what is now over 4 years.

Considering Returning my Blog to Public Access… + Another Look at the Oct. 11 Helsinki Data…

“The Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over. Despite the declaration of ‘cold shutdown’ by the Japanese government in December 2011, the crippled reactors have not yet achieved a stable status and even UNSCEAR admits that emissions of radioisotopes are continuing unabated. TEPCO is struggling with an enormous amount of contaminated water, which continues to leak into the surrounding soil and sea. Large quantities of contaminated cooling water are accumulating at the site. Failures in the makeshift cooling systems are occurring repeatedly. The discharge of radioactive waste will most likely continue for a long time.”

German affiliate of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, July 18, 2014.

This post starts with irrelevant reflections about my blog being “private” (with no other viewers than myself) since Oct. 5, and then shifts into some more research into the radiation upticks that have been sweeping the Northern Hemisphere, and even Southern Hemissphere some, in the past two months.  The focus is on the peculiar detections in Helsinki, Finland in early October, with some Nullschool wind maps to ponder…

Fiction as the reference for reality...

(Nov. 13, 205 via Yahoo News.)  Fiction as the reference for reality…  And planting seeds for the unacceptable…

Besides being linked from videos (See, “The 7 YouTube Videos that mentioned this blog“), there’s apparently dozens of websites that mention my blog too, sometimes offering some of what I wrote translated.  Kinda sucks that if one were to want to view the original that it wouldn’t be around anymore, I suppose. :-/   Or that some of my posts may now only be available in Polish or Czech…

Am I suffering from “blogging withdrawals” perhaps…?  Did I get stuck by an acute intense case of “activist burnout”?   Now well over a month into my “dissapearing online”, I’ve already begun to wonder if my “pulling the plug” was such a great idea all-in-all.

I intended to go spent all that time hiking and seeing places instead. But cutting it off, didn’t stop me from being ‘busy with it’.  Audience or no audience.  Makes no difference.  Apparently I feel compelled, for the sake of seeking truth.  That it perhaps makes no or very little difference is apparently actually not a factor.  Even when no one sees my research, I still research.  I guess it doesn’t matter all that much that it “has no effect.”  The thought that it was “pretty much one or the other” was wrong.  And it has no effect on how much time I spent outside, ’cause I do this blogging thing usually late at night anyhow.  This whole fantasy of “choosing the real world of the energetic multidemensional and biological web of life” over crunching data, documenting an ongoing cover-up… I guess I had a moment of thinking slightly too black-and-white.

The “blogging decompression” never really happened.   Had a couple nice conversations in the aftermath but… I just kept on researching and “blogging”…  The whole idea  to simply quit…  I’ve done that with all kinds of things.  Sometimes a bit of a challenge at first, but THIS “addiction”…  is a whole other animal…  What is this called,  OCD?  (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?). … Or am I almost cruelly hard on myself by giving psychiatric labels for merely being genuinly concerned and feeling compelled to get to the truth of the matter ?   I suppose it’s a side-effect of a slightly infuriating situation.

A couple folks noticed I wasn’t around…

9 folks bothered to contact me email, and 11 requested ‘private access’.   I just swung by ENEnews and skimmed the comments.  The upticks weren’t discussed much, except for that already-mentioned uradmonitor weirdness and the peculiar Australian upticks (looked at a bit on Nov. 8, 2015 in “Another Round of Looking into Recent Radiological Disturbaces.”).


I may continue blogging, but I’ve written ENEnews off as a highly untrustworthy sensationalistic outlet that does not expose misinformation (like blaming potassium-rich foods like kelps on Fukushima fallout), and that does distract (Nevada fire, the Dana Dunford show,…) when something of significance is actually taking place, such as the extreme releases of late. It is endorsed by obvious gatekeepers, and heavily populated by trolls of all stripes. That’s just my opinion, subject to change without notice. See my disclaimer. And some folks may be exceptions, of course.

A reprocessing facility release?  A fuel change at a nearby nuclear power plant?   Yeah, Uh-huh… sure.  Every report of marine life in peril “must be from Fukushima” but you get signature isotope detections amidst major radiological upticks worldwide, and yeah, sure, it’s possible, a little refueling or so, something local

[Sigh…]  … I have my days where I wonder if there is ANYONE among the regular ENEnewsers that is not playing some role in an epic ‘controlled opposition’ tour-de-force, activist websites and all.   I wonder sometimes…

Anyway.  How about at least 3 nuclear reactors had complete meltdowns, are in some sort of state of “China Syndrome” (Outside containment, through the concrete, who knows how deep they sank?), and how about the nightmarish possibility that perhaps massive amounts of hot volatile gasses are being vented in an attempt to keep the underground neutron-spewing quasi-breeder-reactor-gone-wild (???) from exploding?   And to add, how about those “few tons” of aerosolized reactor fuel sent sky high in 2011…?  How about that stuff slowly but steadily making it way down from the upper atmosphere?  Is it truly lost on everyone else how striking the similarities are between these recent (2015) detected isotopes far downwind and observations of on-site contaminted water… (2013 – See further below)?  How about those peculiar Finnish detections came all the way from Japan?  Plausible.  Likely.   Not impossible.  “Requiring more investigation!”, perhaps?

In the above cropped screenshot of ENEnews’ “Post Your Radiation Monitoring Data Here” Forum, on Oct 17, 2015, “Vital1” brought up the Finnish detections (which I already graphed from EURDEP data in my Oct. 28 post, “Detected in Helsinki Finland late October 2015: Cesium-134 & 137, Actinium-225 & 227, Cobalt-60. + Detected in Hamburg, Germany: Zirconium-97.“), but with a link I hadn’t seen yet: http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=ED-20151015-50503-FIN, that also mentioned the detection of Manganese-54, an isotope actually not listed on EURDEP:


And how’s that “further investigation” going, STUK?  Same as last time?  (The statement is made, the neighbours are asked, “Anything in Norway, Russia, Sweden, Baltic States?”  No?  Oh, okay… And no follow up is heard from.   “Oh well…”

Music break:

When Mn-54 and Co-60 are mentioned together with the more common ones like Cs-134, Cs-137 (and not mentioned in the article, but at the same time Ac-225 and Ac-227 were also in that mix – and in May 2015, there was also Nb-95 detected in Finland: See June 8, 2015, “Pink Unicorns beach themselves on the shores of Lake Dystopia”).),  I’m reminded of the TEPCO document from Aug. 21, 2013 about some 300 tons of contaminated water that leaked… which I found when I was trying to find out more about Cobalt-60, detected in a trace amount in one of the Kelp seaweeds I bought in Japan in November 2013 and sent to a lab for analysis.   That document was the very first time TEPCO released Cobalt-60 data:

300tonsOfThisMess_August21_2013_TEPCO_Co60_Mn54_etcAnd very little has been said about Fukushima’s Co-60 releases since.  It appears to have a hush-hush significance.  (See also my letter to Ken B., somewhere in the recent post, “Another Round of Looking into Recent Radiological Disturbaces.“).   Probably because it’s created in very heavy neutron bombardement of steel…   And some things are just not something anyone should think about…  I suppose…

On an antimonial side-note:

Wikipedia_isotopes_of_antimony: “[…] There are 35 artificial radioactive isotopes if antimony, the longest-lived of which are 125Sb, with a half-life of 2.76 years; 124Sb, with a half-life of 60.2 days; and 126Sb, with a half-life of 12.35 days. All other isotopes have half-lives less than 4 days, most less than an hour. […]”

Sb-123 + neutrons —> Sb-124  ///   Sb-124 + neutrons —> Sb-125

The reason I bring up Antimony is because of all the hundreds of artificially created radioisotopes it’s one of those few mentioned in the August 2013 TEPCO document that also mentions Cobalt-60. All they mentioned as detected was Cs-134, Cs-137, Co-60, Mn-54 and Sb-125.  And it just happens to be so that in early October 2015, in Helsinki, Finland, Cs-134, Cs-137, Mn-54 and Co-60 were also detected together.  (They don’t test for antimony at that monitoring station in Finland.)  Back to the leaking tanks at Fukushima:  if there’s Sb-125, and there was lots, then there’s likely a lot more Sb-124, because Sb-125 is created by neutron activation of Sb-124, and you’re going to need a crazy amount of spare neutrons for this.   And, *totally coincidentally*, it just happens to be so that Sb-124 was one of the stronger detections in both  rainwater and lichen samples from Southern Colorado in June 2015, which I had analyzed at a lab because 1) the rain was unusually radioactive (over 10 µSv/hr with Medcome Geiger Counter), 2) the clouds were oddly tinted, 3) there was a ridiculous amount of in-cloud lightning activity (ionizing radiation increases the conductivity of air), and 4) it just happened to coincide with a jet stream pattern that could have brought Fukushima air all the way from Japan in just 3-4 days.    To recall: here’s a repeat of the antimony data from my August 1, 2015 blog post, “Synopsis / Improved Version: ‘Mainland USA June 14 2015 Radioactive Rain & Lichen Data Revisited“:

Antimony-124 (Sb-124), half-life: 60.2 days, fission-activation product.  See it in its decay chain @ http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/051.124/index2.full.prod.html

Sb-124 in the rain sample:   Yes, near-certain:

Sb124_Rain_corr!–> One of the two measurement values is 2.5x higher than the Method Blank, outside the Method Blanks’s margin of error, ánd above MDC, and its margin of error does not go below the MDC.  (The average of the two measurement values is just above both MDCs too.)

Sb-124 in the lichen sample:   Yes, likely:

Sb124_Lichen_corr–> Both (uncertain) measurement values are higher than the Method Blank, one even more than 21x higher.  (The average of the two tests is also 11x more than the Method Blank.)

Sb-124 does not occur in nature, it is an activation product of Sb-123, created in heavy neutron bombardments, such as in an active nuclear reactor.  It’s been linked to releases from Fukushima, see here and here, but it is generally more associated with nuclear bomb fallout (caused by the sudden massive neutron bombardment of a nuclear detonation), see here.”

So, anyway…   Not that I know that they’re connected but seeing the same dots again has made me feel like connecting them.  Some day they’ll pass a law against ‘connecting dots’...

Now the reason these things get detected in Finland and not elsewhere is very simple: they’re the only ones testing for it on a regular basis ánd with incredible precision.

For the timing of the more recent (Oct. 2015) detections, the Cesium-237 data gives the clearest picture, with a multi-day window and a brief spike, during which the other radioisotopes were also detected.  I’ll use this timing and location to look at wind data on Nullschool next:

  • Cesium-134 & 137:HelsinkiCesium134.137_Oct2015

But first a quick look to see if Berylium-7 data is also available.  That can give a clue whether or not the air mass was delivered from higher up (where Be-7 is created in the upper atmosphere)…  Yup:

Here’s 3 months of Cs-137 and Be-7 data for Helsinki.  the 3 times there’s an uptick of Cs-137, it just so happens to coincide with an uptick in Be-7 too, or was at least preceded by a Be-7 uptick in the previous days:

Helsinki_past3months_Cs137_Be7SO… if the wind was “blowing from the north” on the day of the detections, that means surface wind direction.  The fact that there’s a day or two-day delay between a strong Cs-137 signal after the Be-7 uptick could mean that the air mass that contained this Cs-137 (etc.) reached ground-level north of Helsinki, and then blew in lower to the ground. Where the polution actually came from could be much further away.   1000 hPa (just above the surface) and 500 hPa (just below jet stream) and 250 hPa (core jet stream level) for Oct. 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11 @ noon each day (UTC) with annotations:

Here is October 11, 2015 (12:00 UTC) wind data, with radiation data of the week added from EURDEP and/or Radnet monitors:


High pressure system just west of Finland/Estonia brings down air from higher up…

A Gamma radiation signal right at the time the isotope detections were made is only slightly present on some monitors along the same wind path.  The wind may have been “coming from the north”, but it is clear that just a little north it was coming from the west:


Shortly before the detections, data gaps are seen upwind in Finland, and shortly after the detections brief spikes can be found downwind, such as in southern Norway and near the capital of Latvia:


So how about thís?:  

Taking the same 250 hPa wind map right above, but viewing from the North pole, we can see data gaps upwind in Ireland and Iceland, suggesting that the origin of the detections might lay across the Atlantic or beyond.   Near the beginning of a slow-down zone of the jet stream over Western Canada, a pattern of disturbances, with two short data gaps in it, is seen in Juneau, Southern Alaska, as well, about 2 days earlier, fitting with / suggesting that – if this is related to the observed in Europe, the source of the detections might lie all the way across the Pacific.  Turns out that a very-fast moving jet streamcore was in place over Japan, with an almost uninterupted movement until Europe was reached:

http-:earth.nullschool.net:#2015:10:11:1200Z:wind:isobaric:250hPa:orthographic=2.68,82.48,271How far can one take ‘Coincidence Theory’?  Is there a treshold somewhere, where the frequency of a specific pattern makes it rather implausible for it to be ‘coincidence’, or is it ALWAYS ‘a coincidence’ when it has something to do with the nuclear industry, because that’s what the nuclear industry dictates us to think.  And if you just happen to be afflicted by a stubborn case of thinking differently,… then what?  Am I a nuissance?  I don’t mean to be.  We share the same planet.  I love this planet.  Don’t they love this planet?  Is that what’s up?
Anyway… the core of a very fast jet stream was blowing over Japan right that week, with wind lines starting from the detections and data gaps pretty much converging over Tohoku.

Oct. 7 through 10, 2015, all at 250 hPa:


OCT. 7, 2015 12:00 UTC 250 hPa

It’s more fun to see it move on Nulschool, when clicking through the 6-hour intervals, but here’s a couple more snapshots of preceding days:


OCT. 8, 2015 12:00 UTC 250 hPa


OCT. 9, 2015 12:00 UTC 250 hPa


OCT. 10, 2015 12:00 UTC 250 hPa

It’s beautiful outside… The forest is silent with snow in the forecast…

Radon-220 Spikes in Croatia: highest since records began in 2009.

It’s Nov. 11, 2015 in the Colorado Rockies…  9:45pm Mountain Time.

Internet through Mifi.

What shall I look at tonite…

Like Radon-222, Radon-220 (Rn-220) is another one that can be ‘natural’ or “enhanced natural”.  Naturally occuring as a part of the decay chain of Thorium (Th-232 & Th-228), the decay chains leading to Rn-220, http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/086.220/index2.full.prod.html also shows it can be added on by at least 4 types of Plutonium isotopes, just to pick something (Pu-228, Pu-232, Pu-236, Pu-240, Pu-244).  The end-product is, again, stable lead, in this case Pb-208.

EURDEP has various monitoring networks for the same isotope sometime, just by different names.  One, Rn-220-EEC, for instance has just these two monitors in Croatia:220_EECThe one on the right is BATINA, Croatia.

This past 1 month shows both Radon-220 and Radon-222, with what looks like significant recent spiking after a day-long data gap:

Batina_Croatia_Nov12_2015_1monthQuite the uptick of Radon-220 (top black graph) these past 10 days.  Is this unusual?  Let’s see…

This monitor started measuring at the very end of 2009.  Here’s the entire record: Dec. 2009 though Nov. 12, 2015Watch the top graph in particular, Radon-220.  See its complete decay chain @ http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/086.220/index2.full.prod.html.   (Note:  Maybe this is unrelated, but…   MOX fuel, which was in the fully-melted-down-and-out Reactor 3, as well as in spent fuel (some of which burned up too) contains Plutonium-240 (Pu-240), one of the many radioisotopes that in its decay chain passed through a Rn-220 phase.  Just a thought.)  Anyhow…

I marked the level that was never surpassed pre-Fukushima with a red line for both, starting with 2009:

12 3 45

!–> A first “highest measurment of Rn-220 since data collection began at the end of 2009” is recorded at this monitor between March 13 and March 20, 2011, clearly due to Fukushima, and corresponding with lots of other radioactive particles reaching all the way to Europe and beyond:

6By the beginning of summer 2011, the US EPA had already declared the accident basically over and returned to ‘routine monitoring’ (which is practically nothing as far as sample analysis goes).  Most of the fallout much higher up hadn’t even begun reaching ground monitors… (at least, that’s still my impression, to which this record only adds…).

Rn-220 and Rn-222 “behave” quite diferent at times, which is interesting in and of itself, I find.  Just watch them seperately.

7 17

Major upticks at the end of October 2011, early November 2011:8In November 2011, Radon-222 sees several very significant spikes:910111213In 2013, data gaps become more frequent and last longer:

1415161718Almost half the record of Summer 2014 is not shared with the public:

1920212223And then…  Right after an Oct. 31-Nov. 1 data gap:  Unprecedented levels of Rn-220 are reached this early November 2015:

24 SO… What happened? 

I have no idea what happened.

I’ve checked EURDEP enough over the past few years to notice, though, now already weeks ago (around the time of the Oct. 25, 2015 massive upticks, documented in the previus dozen or so blog posts), that very recently something véry unusual has been taking place.  A radioactive cloud that contains large amounts of Bismuth-214, Radon-220, some Zirconium-97, Cesium 137 & Cesium-134, and then some…  It’s definitely newsworthy.

Given the measurements in the United States indicate it’s coming from across the Pacific, I suspect it’s coming from Fukushima-DaiichiIf not, something extremely serious occured somewhere else.

Mainstream and so-called alternative media are completely silent.

Well, not exactly ‘silent’.  They’re making a lot of noise… but NOT about this…

Let’s look at a couple BETA & ALPHA radiation monitors in Europe… Anything unusual happening?   There’s the networks of Poland and Romania.  The Russian data is only good for the data gap record.

T_BETA_1month_pre_Nov12_2015_EURDEPThat circled monitor’s spike (mentioned before), turns out, was the highest value since November 2011:

WLODAWA_Poland_Nov12_2015_1month_Beta_AlphaHere’s two randomly picked monitors from Romania, with some scribbles (annotations) added by me, 3 months pasted together:

Oradea_Romania ZImnicea_Romania

Here’s one from Russia: “HaHa” …

Leningrad_whereEverythingIsFIneFor closing, here’s 1 month data from Eastern Turkey:

Kars_TurkeyI’m going to leave at this for tonight again… as I’ve had to restart my computer a few too many times.    Doesn’t do that when I research climate change or watch music videos or what not…

I suppose it comes with the territory:


Lightly edited on Nov 12, 2015,

…when Budapest, Hungary saw an unvalidated glitch dot of significance, after a half-week data gap, most likely merely inserted “with the best of intentions”

Another Round of Looking into Recent Radiological Disturbaces – 2: Focus on the Early November 2015 uptick

(Starting this latest round at 10 pm on Nov. 10, 2015))

Building further on the last post, and many before that, my impression is:

  • Disturbances that seem not per se natural have been going on for quite awhile.
  • The ones in October and early November 2015 seem to come in what seem like “3 waves”, with:
    • the first wave between Oct. 11 – 18;
    • the second wave in the Oct 23-28 period, and
    • the most recent wave starting between Nov 2nd and 7nd, and in some cases still going, with many spiking on Nov. 7 or 8.

My first question is: where did these rounds of radiation increases begin?  Did the last/current wave make landfall in Northwestern Europe, then moved south towards Turkey, to curls around the high pressure system over France, to end up flying west over Northern Africa and back into Europe by way of Spain?  Or what is going on here?  There might be lots of overlap of already graphed data.  But I’m graphing just the past 1 week data.

Starting out with marking 33 locations to graph, going from north to south.  See how far I get…  Rolling:

Europe_Nov11_2015_04.50am UTC_1weekData_Gamma Max_Eurdep_North_toSOuth_33+checkpointsIn that order:

1_Hammerfest_Norway2_Tromso_Norway3_Enontekioe_Finland4_Ritsem_Sweden5_MoIRana_Norway6_Jarnasklubb_Sweden7_Tannas_Sweden 8_Pomarkku_Finland 9_Gavle_Sweden 10_Vaerdoe_FInland 11_Ristna_Estonia 12_Visingso_Sweden 13_Jelvaga_Latvia 14_Liepaja_Latvia 15_Hallandsvadero_Sweden 16_Fino2_GermanyAlright, I gues that’s only the first 16.  Might do some other queries instead of the rest of that list.

From looking at this first batch of monitors before heading to bed, there appear alse 2 waves within with early November wave.  All the way in the far north it isn’t very pronounced.  The nation-wide data gap of Sweden makes this a tough puzzle. There are early disturbances at the very end of October, then the “first wave” of November in the Nov. 2-3 window, followed by Nov. 5+ and then a more widespread spiking on or right after Nov. 7.

Before I continue further south, I will look at the Norwegian network more closely first, as well as some monitors even further north, as well in in Greenland…

—- —- —-

GreenlandGreenland data show (graphed the past 3 weeks)

  • that the event around the 25th, which affected monitors in many parts of North America, was NOT a solar or other kind of cosmic ray burst.
  • It appeared earlier on the scene in NUUK and Aasiaat, and the spike is a tiny bit later in Qaqortoq too.
  • In short:  it has the signature of a fallout cloud so huge its movement overhead is being detected on ground monitors all over the world, including in currently frozen-over winter wonderland Greenland:Greenland_Oct20_Nov10_2015The later upticks don’t show, although there is a slight hint of some disturbances.

Far north of mainland Norway, on the isle of Spitzbergen, the Oct. 25-16 event is not visible, but an uptick period at the beginning of November is clear, with a peak mid-Nov. 1:

Longyearbyen_NorwayAlso far north, but on the Canadian site, an obscure French monitor @ Saint-Pierre-Et_Miquelon-975 shows something, but how they correlate (within time as the air moves) isn’t obvious from this:

… It just happens to be that the nuclear industry is involved in widespread and pervasive deceptions.   If they had told the truth in the beginning, there would be no nuclear power plants.  The consequences for future generations are unacceptable…

Another Round of Looking into Recent Radiological Disturbaces.

An incomplete mixture of random possibly related observations…

(+ my unanswered letter to Ken Buesseler from back in July!)

The more I’ve looked at the last month’s radiation data from all over the place, the less confident I feel about declaring, “It’s from Fukushima again!“.  It could be.  But is it really?  Could I get a bit less uncertainty about where the most significant upticks might have come from?  

To do so, I’m going to have to delve into it a bit deeper, with more radiation graphs, and with perhaps also adjusting Nullschool wind maps over many days for several areas, also looking at independent networks, and spend many hours pondering over it all to come closer to an idea of where the air, assumed to have been delivering radioactive particles that most likely caused these very significant recent radiation upticks, could be coming from.

For context of what I’m wondering about, see these previous several blog posts (and at this time of posting this privately, I’m really just giving myself notes in an attempt to get a grasp of the broad data picture myself.):

There’s my page from where Nullschool for wind and other meteorological data as well as various worldwide Online Radiation Monitors are easily checked.  And then these recent posts about the upticks at the end of September, and at several spike times in October, running into the very beginning of November now too:

Hm… Quite the blogging spree for having “quit blogging”… ;-/ 

All these posts above were written between Oct 19 and Nov 7 (2015) and contain snapshots of sometimes peculiar (albeit not always ‘validated’) graphed radiation data from the official monitoring networks of the United States (US EPA Radnet), the data exchange platform of the European Commission (EURDEP) and Japan.

Now, part of my curiosity also stems from the appearance that whatever was spewing radioactive particles in September-October (2015) is not done yet.  (This is part of the reason I suspect Fukushima-Daiichi, ’cause if it doing what I think it is doing, then intermittent releases could go on for centuries to come…  But that aside.)

Problem is: I don’t really know where to start.  There are too many upticks to pick a distinct ‘one main uptick’…  For instance, would I use the Data Gap of Luxemburg as a reference?

Junglinster_Lux_the Oct2015DataGapOr does the earlier-starting data gap off the northcoast of Northern Germany, which also lasted longer, suggest that fallout was more pronounced there?

NorthernGermany_offCoast_nearDenmark_and_Sweden_UnvalidatedNov7_2015GammaSpikeOr should I work from “a glitch dot”, like the one that struck a monitor in Hungary on Oct. 25:HungarianSpike_Oct25_2015 Or shall I run with the earlier glitch dot from south-central Germany, Oct. 15, which even preceded the Luxembourg data gap…?Muehlheim.Kaerlich_Germany_weekPreOct2015_spikeWithinDisturbance_ValidatedThe “glitch dot” uptick from Halsteren, The Netherlands, occured on the 24th?  Part of he same cloud that affected many monitors the 25 through the 27th?

Halstern_NL_Spike_EndOct2015_EURDEPSome of those really could be brief instrument errors, though…  Weird flukes do happen with sensitive elctronics sometimes.

Shall I ignore the smaller earlier ones and just focus on the most significant uptick?  And what if the latest upticks just keeps getting bigger?

On the American side of the Atlantic, for instance, many monitors are showing much greater upticks this past first week of November, rather than in the last two weeks of October.  In Juneau, South-Eastern Alaska, the uptick was most pronounced on Nov. 2:

Juneau_3weekspriorToNovember8.2015_G3onlyAt the southern end of the Great Lakes in Illinois, in Chicago, the most pronoucd upticks happened on October 28 and at the end of Haloween:Chicago_Oct16_24_2015_G3I seriously wonder:  What the hell is going on?  SOMETHING UNUSUAL is setting of monitors all over the world.

I could even go all the way south, across the equator, to Australia and check http://sccc.org.au/archives/2630‘s October and latest November data, where peculiarities have been observed as well:

Cairns-Caloundra-comparison-for-October-2015Like elsewhere, it looks like the next wave is bigger, with many days in a row of “Alert Levels” being reached, for that location the first time since last spring… Look how it begins to show signs of rising in mid-October, with the first (daily average) peaks just after Oct. 25 again, and then múch more in this past week (first week of November):

Caloundra-local-average-background-radiation-levels-October-2015_annot So – bad habits die hard – I swung by ENEnews, where I read some comments on the Post Your Radiation Data Forum, like this is one, mentioning the above data too:

How Northern Hemispheric air could get so fast to the Southern Hemisphere leaves me puzzled, though…

Next, I went to uradmonitor.com to see if the data there could provide any more clues about Vital1‘s alleged uptick period 10/20-25…

(Very cool how good this independent network has become, definitely improved since last time I visited.  Check out their blog, where they also write about their recent server update in September.)   

Turkey may be showing the highest spikes at the end of October (true for the batch I checked), but will that help me figure out WHERE EXACTLY this is coming from?  But I spoted something unusual…

Istabul_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitor.comThere’s this very distinct period (I’ve put ’em in pink dotted-line boxes)…

Duisburg_Germany_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitor.com NearSaarbrucken_germany_LuxembourOnMap_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitor.com Taiwan_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitor.com EastWenatchee_WA_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmon Aoteaora_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitor.com Brasil_Oct8_Nov8_2015_uRadmonitorThis ‘event’, with massive swings that show up as the denser green patch, wih higher highs and lower lows,  lasted roughly from October 20th, 11am till October 23, 4pm.  Obviously, with this being observed globally, there’s no way that this particular aspect of the radiation graphs is fallout-related.

I find the EXACT same timing worldwide: between 11:11 and 11:15 am on Oct. 22, 2015, ALL urad monitors worldwide appear to somehow get ‘aggitated’, with wide swings and here and there significant upticks.  The timing is the same in Norway as in California and elsewhere:

Oct20NorwayCoast PasadenaCAYou can look around, it’s always within that ballpark, roughly right around 11:12 am.  Strange…

  • Clearly, thát Oct 22-24 global simultaneous disturbance is NOT “something in the Middle East or Black Sea”.
  • And wouldn’t a highly unusual Solar Event show up on some of the data sets, such as found on SolarHam or even be mentioned on Spaceweather or by NASA/SDO?  I found nothing.
  • So… Is it uRadMonitor itself?   I zoomed in on the data and found that during his period, there’s not the usual 12 data points per hour (showing 5 minute averages), but perhaps 120 or so data points per hour:  30-second averages.  That’s all there is too that one.  And when you get that, you see more of the variation, including lulls and very brief spikes.  If you’re looking for fallout patterns, higher resolution can be better, but not necessarily.  I didn’t find anything on their blog, but, as they stated in mid-September, “…With the network spreading at a fast pace, periodic upgrades on the server side…” might have included processing the data differently in an experimental mode.  It did not affect the averages.  It just looks like “an event, with spikes”, but as far as uradmonitor goes, it may just have been a software setting kind of thing:

Hungary_3hours_numberOfDataPointsSo, that takes that off the investigation map.  Unfortunately that means that as far as that distinct period goes, uradmonitor’s data actually doesn’t come in handy this time, as it has 2 types of data sets during the same period (5-minute averages and what looks like 30-second averages), making it hard to figure out what was truly unusual.

Nice distraction, though.  I’m impressed with their work.  Maybe someday I’ll have a monitor that’s part of a network like that as well. 

Back to wondering…

I’m going to look at Alpha & Beta data from  Poland, and Radon (220 + 222) & Beta from the JRC monitor 7 in Northern Italy.  No, actually… I’m not.  I’m going to use my time differently tonite.   I’m okay not knowing.


Another time, another inspiration…

IF… just running a scenario… IF Spent Fuel Pool #4 truly went up in smoke, and much of Reactor 3’s inventory airosolized in the complete meltdown and explosion, then the decay daughters of Plutonium-238, etc. would need to become detectable over the years these particles slowly find their way back from the upper atmosphere to which they rose, hot and volitile as they were.   And in the not impossibe case that Fukushima is still having fission-flare-ups, some of its melted-down fuel will also be released in gaseous form off and on, I would think.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOX_fuel : “[…] Most of the fuel mass in a reactor is uranium-238By neutron capture and two successive beta decays, U-238 becomes plutonium-239 (Pu-239), which, by successive neutron capture, becomes plutonium-240, plutonium-241, plutonium-242 and (after further beta decays) other transuranic or actinide nuclides. Pu-239 and Pu-241 are fissile, like U-235. Small quantities of U-236, Np-237 and Pu-238 are formed similarly from U-235. […]”

Decay chain of Plutonium-238, with along its decay chain some of the isotopes EURDEP tests for, including: Uranium-234 (which is also naturally ocurring), Thorium-230, Radium-226, Radon-222, Polonium-218, Lead-214, Bismuth-214, Polonium-214, Lead-210, Bismuth-210, Polonium-210 and ending with stable Lead-206:

Pu238Decay_toLeadThe “all natural Polonium-210” is one of the lies propagated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  It’s unfortunate that an institution of that projected calliber doesn’t have the balls to investigate more deeply, instead they apparently seem to cover for the nuclear industry. ;-(

WoodsHole_screenshot_Nov9_2015On that first underlining, how do the Po-210 data compare to pre-Fukushima normal concentrations?  (Data is nowhere to be found on the WHOI’s site that I can tell)   And is it really too much to ask that they would add the nuance, clarifying that various decay chains of uranium, neptunium and plutonium isotopes result in additional amounts of all these “naturally occuring” isotopes?  On the Sr-90 issue. Who cares that the levels of Sr-90 are much lower than the levels of Cs-137, when much lower levels of Sr-90 can actually still be more harmful over time?  This is nuclear propaganda-style wording at its most scientific sounding, but, sadly, it’s still deceptive propaganda.

This reminds me of my last email to Ken Buesseler of WHOI on July 11, 2015, after which I have yet to hear from him again.  I guess after 4 months of silence, I might as well share the email he’s left unanswered:

Nov 7 2015 – 24- and 48-Hour-Data Delay / Gaps Being Imposed in many EURDEP Countries. Cs-137 upticks in Finland

Nov. 7, 2015

Gamma-T in the past 24 hours shows that quite a number of countries are imposing a data release gap:


Ireland, most of Italy, and Romania allow data older one day to be seen, but the other ones don’t at this time.   Some data gaps are much longer; few are as long as a week.

Here’ the ones for whom the data release dalay exceeded or equaled 48 hours: Nov7_2015_20.40MT_EURDEP_Gamma_2days

No way to see what is behind the data gaps…

  • Cesium-137 & Radon-220 at Nicosia (0037 monitor) on the island of Cyprus, shows only very minor disturbances, and a data gap at the onset of November:

Cyprus_1month_Nov7_2015_Rn220, Cs137Possible: Based on the zero values, best visible on the Radon graph, and the unusually low counts around the 25th, it is not impossible that some kind of formula was applied to the data to artificially bring them down and not show what might otherwise have shown as a spike.

  • Some data from Finland (Cs-137 side by side with Be-7):

Northern Finland:

ALERT – Major Radiological Disturbances in Northern Hemisphere. (October 2015)

It’s already November again…

Somewhere imaginary, high up in the Colorado Rockies, the Government of Absurdistan has unanimously voted (1:0) in favor of issuing a Radiological Emergency Advisory for the past entire month for the Northern Hemisphere, based on highly unusual data observed on the Online Radiation Monitors of the European Comission (EURDEP) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (RADNET), in combination with Nullschool Earth wind data.

What does this “alert” actually mean?  I’d say it’s nothing to get all worked up over.  This blog post contails basically nothing new:  I provide a few more examples of the apparent fact that the official radiation monitoring systems of Europe and North America, where the bulk of nuclear power pants are located* are rigged in such a way that if there actually were an major nuclear emergency, of the caliber of Chernobyl or Fukushima, you wouldn’t be able to tell from the released data anyhow.  Spikes are replaced with data gaps.

(*See my April 16, 2011 List of Nuclear Power Plants with maps, which may be outdated, since some 60 new ones are under construction, most of which in Asia…)

“Nothing to see here.  Move along.”

I made it even easier for people to ignore what I’ve pointed at many times over the past year:  This blog has been made ‘PRIVATE’ with no one allowed in to watch/read my ponderings and research since October 5th, 2015.   Haha  (If this were visible anyhow, browse through the posts if you’d like to find out when it was turned back on… I suppose).   I’m liking the ‘experiment’.  Is there any more or less of an effect on the world.  Can I assess anything else than my own state of mind?  Do I feel less ‘watched’, less ‘followed’?  DO I research less when I know no one sees my research?  (No)  So what compels me?   It’s kinda fun, actually.    But anyhow… fallout clouds and such…

Should I hold my breath?  Shall I put on a hazmat suit, all gas-masked-up, and go walk around realy fast in a center of town, acting all frantic and worried?  Stock up on sardines before their Strontium-90 content reaches some illustrious ‘level of concern’?   Should I tell people that we’re very slowly being fried and that perhaps millions of people, many not even born yet, will likely die earlier than they otherwise would, or suffer through the ordeal of healing from cancer, or live with immune disorders, heart disease, be plagued by mental disorders, or however the consequences will manifest for millions more, over the decades ahead, all directly or indirectly due to breathing bits and pieces of these fallout clouds that continue to circle the globe?  And then what?  Get stared at, for being some weirdo nerd who looks at data graphs?

The point of this alert is MOOT,  1) because it’s about the past,  2) because it’s about the future , and 3) because no one can read this anyhow (hehe). ;-)  Which is perfect, ’cause last time I took the pulse of mainstream society it was all about “being in the now” and “being happy”, or something… and there’s no instant gratification to be had with facing an issue that I estimate will take about 3,000 years to turn around.  Unless, of course, we create technologies with which the clean-up goes much faster.

Meanwhile…  in that same mainstream land:  “Lets create more” of the same insanity…

When I spot signs of data rigging or what to me looks like evidence of a major radiological event, why would I need to alert the public?   Last time I got all worked up over the cover-up of the late-November 2014 nuclear accident at Zaporizhia NPP in the Easterm Ukraine (see my documentation listed in the (Jan. 12, 2015) overview blog post, Cover-up of Zaporizhye Nuclear Accident Near-Certain), it was met a mixture of some disbelief, mostly utter disinterest (including from people with young children in Europe, whom I thought would want to know which way the fallout cloud would move so at least they could choose to keep their kids indoors on major fallout days, etc.), plus a few people whom in hindsight might have been more ‘entertainied’ than taking me seriously anyhow.  And then poof:  It morphed into a non-event, like it never happened.  Not one alternative of mainstream media outlet investigate dit further.   Like the Chinese meltdown at Daya Bay NPP in May 2010.  Which, of course, also never happened.

One of the rumored nuclear PsyOp wings of the military-industrial complex, the controlled opposition outlet and troll nest, ENEnews, appears to have created a little diversion, by way of mainstream propaganda outlet, The New York Times‘ (AP) Oct. 25, 2015 report, on an alleged nuclear waste fire incident in Nevada

LasVegas_NV_GammaSPike_Oct18_2015_ENEnewsA Radnet Gamma 5 scatter plot (showing the data points rather than continuous lines, the latter which can hide data gaps) for Las Vegas, NV shows that ENEnews plotted the data to not show the data gaps right before and right after:


Let’s scrutinize the data a little more…

Nullschool_Oct18_0600UTC_500hPa_WesternNorthAmFurther illustrating my now-longstanding-accusation that both EURDEP and Radnet are RIGGED to hide significant radiological events:  The Eureka, Northern California monitor shows the more significant uptics the days before and week after as well, which nicely correspond (again…) with data gaps more inland (where there’s more turbulance that mixes air layers and thus often more of an effect on ground monitors from radioactive particles that are speculated to be brought in from much higher up):

EUREKA_Oct13_26_2015_Radnet_Gamma5.6Also:  There’s no way that IF the origin were a dust cloud from a waste site fire in Nevada, that it would set off a nearby monitor in Las Vegas, NV,  ÁND, at roughly the same time also set off far-away monitors.  Like in Boston, MA, for instance.  Or half-way around the world in Europe for that matter (see more data further below).   The only explanation I have for the corresponding timing of upticks and data gaps across vast distances is that the delivery (to a ground monitor detecting something) is coming from fast-moving high altitude air layers, such as the 250-500 hPa jet stream layer.


Now, far more undermining to the credibility of ENEnews, which for whatever reason tried to link that radiation spike (which upon network-wide scrutiniy turns out to be relatively minor compared to the other two major spike times in these past two weeks)  to that Nevada incident…: Spikes around that time were observed elsewhere as well, including in places not downwind from Southern Nevada during this time period whatsoever.  Even more convenient of an omission, in many areas the spike preceded the reported fire in Nevada.

A sampling of monitors suggests that the air mass that set off the Las Vegas monitor hit many parts of the West Coast earlier.

Also gone un- or underreported is that at the time of the NYT’s reporting a far greater spike was setting off monitors across the Northern Hemishere, (Oct 24-25-26 particularly), even breaking many past-year or even all-time records.

Seattle_WA_Gamma3_Oct15_Oct27_2015 RichlandWA_Gamma2_Radnet_Oct14_28_2015

SLV_Utah_Oct13_26_2015_Radnet_Gamma5Obviously this was NOT a Nevada-local phenomenon…

The BETA data for Corvalis, OR are normally capped at 500 CPM (See data sets compiled by pinksailmatt, via Stock @ nukepro).  For the first time, however, values even higher were shown since:  this past week!  Also, note the data gap on Oct. 14 again, and relatively minor upticks in the next few days compared to the major uptick right at the time when the NYT/ENEnews article diverted attention to something obviousy unrelated…:

CorvalisOREGON_Beta_Oct13.27_2015RadnetWHat réally should have been in the news (if there was an actual free press left, that is…) are the widespread highly unusual spikes , all roughly along the northern jetstream, from the Pacific Northwest to Europe.   Will there be another mystery die-off of Saiga antellope in Central Asia next week?  Or more marine life washing ashore dead?  Will they blame “an early onset of winter”, or “unusually moist grass”, “a warmer than usual patch of ocean”?  (See my Sept. 3, 2015, “As Radioactive Clouds Drift Over Europe, Kazakhstan’s Saiga Antelope Suddenly Die by the Tens of Thousands Again… Connected?” and the June 18, 2015, “The “Mysterious” mid-May 2015 Kazakhstan Saiga Antelope Die-Off – aka “Do Not Mention Radioactive Fallout…”“, etc.

[Added on Nov. 3:] Now, if the Corvalis data is any clue, it suggests there were a lot of BETA-emitting particles in this fallout cloud.

And the following Polish data (from Lublin) gives me the impression that there was a massive amount of ALPHA-remitting particles in there as well…

This first graph shows the Change (%) in the air in K-40, Bi-214, Tl-208 and “Cosmic Radiation”,  There’s a significant uptick in Bi-214 on Oct. 17-18, and a massive spike in “Cosmic Radiation” on the 24th, followed by a data gap that last till the 26th.

LublinEndOct2015_withutTotalCountsReason I think so is a spike in “cosmic radiation”, while the neutron count (@ Oulu, see graphed below) was unaffected.  Cosmic radiation also includes alpha particles…  So perhaps alpha particles set off the cosmic ray detector, but it wasn’t due to cosmic rays…  Here’s the data from Lublin, Poland:

I would normally be inclined to consider this merely an ‘instrument error’, after which they turned the monitor off, fixed what was wrong, and turned it back on.  Except… that’s almost 2 days without data, and it just happens to be right when monitors where spiking elsewhere, or when data gaps were being inserted all over the place.  Another véry interesting aspect is the TOTAL COUNTS:   None of the shown radioisotopes, nor just Cosmic Rays can explain this increase of almost 12 million times (~12,000 %) in number of counts (like CPM).  When also graphing this, the rest disappears into relative insignificance:LublinEndOct2015_withTotalCounts

And I don’t think it was due to ‘cosmic radiation’, ’cause that would surely have affected the neutron count worldwide.  It didn’t:neutronCount_Nov3_2015OuluDataMoving along…  Back to Radnet.  [End of the Nov. 3 addition.]

In Alaska, the “fallout pattern” is apparent 3 times, with both Fairbanks and Anchorage showing a data gap during one of the times of disturbance.:

FairbanksAKIn the past there have been better examples of data rigging through ommission there, see for instance a clear example in (June 22, 2015), “Fin Whale Die-Off by Alaska area ‘a Perplexing Mystery’… + More Data Rigging Evidence: EPA Radnet Beta radiation monitor @ Anchorage spiking when DATA GAPS @ Anchorage“.

This is the past two weeks, showing both locations’s BETA only:

Anchorage_vs_Fairbanks_AKClosest to my location, the Colorado Springs, Colorado monitor, shows a data gap on Oct. 15, and then a period of disturbances with some spikes in it from the 21st through the 24th of October 2015:


The spikes and data gaps around the 15th and the 25th appear to be the more significant and most widespread ones.  I looked back at all the data I had simply gathered in the past few blog posts and lo and behold…  Yup: It’s clear that the fallout-pattern-like disturbances that hit North America also hit Europe, and thus it is more than likely to have a HOT origin that is being transported high up, with the jet stream, only to show up on monitors where it makes ground-contact…

A “glitch dot” in The Netherlands, for example, was likely caused by a hot particle falling from jet stream height and hitting a monitor directly, while most ground monitors were not yet affected:

Halsteren_NL_glitchdot_Oct24_2015_1800_1900_UTCNow… the mystery deepens as I check more monitors.  Purely for this excersize in detective work, I’m going to assume it’s not from Fukushima and see where I arrive at (in time and space) for a likely origin…

The 250hPa airmass that moved over The Netherlands and brought with it goodies that make monitors squeek blew in from…   Oct. 24, 1800 UTC… 250 hPa…  okay… lets go just below it, still high, at 500hPa, to see the slow-downs below it better:  (Find the little green circle over The Netherlands, follow windlines upwind (going west) if you’re curious…)

http-:earth.nullschool.net:#2015:10:24:1800Z:wind:isobaric:500hPa:orthographic=-32.50,66.17,512That’s http://earth.nullschool.net/#2015/10/24/1800Z/wind/isobaric/500hPa/orthographic=-32.50,66.17,512  and turned to show the Pacific (same day, no adjustments, this is just the super-simple checking to see the approximate position of the ever-moving jet stream that day.  For precision, many adjustments would need to be made.  You can use the Great Lakes as a handy reference if you want to follow the same wind-line upwind further….   Here’s the Pacific view @ http-/earth.nullschool.net/#2015/10/24/1800Z/wind/isobaric/500hPa/orthographic=-136.44,56.21,512  :

http-:earth.nullschool.net:#2015:10:24:1800Z:wind:isobaric:500hPa:orthographic=-136.44,56.21,512._turnedtiffI suppose that’s one way to end up in Japan…

If you take the time to follow specific wind-lines, it becomes clear that the ongoing FUKUSHIMA-DAIICHI nuclear catastrophe may be the culprit.  Could be anywhere else along the path too, but’s striking that the jet stream passed over F1 again right during the period that is marked by major upticks and data gaps in the week following this having been the case…

In any case, the cause is obviously NUCLEAR FALLOUT.  Where is it coming from I ultimately don’t know.  I’m just guessing with some tools to help me guess.  Here’s some more facts to be considered:

Let’s go over a few things…  The glitch dot spike in Muehlheim-Kaerlich, Germany in the morning of Oct. 15 coincides with the data gap period Oct 13-16 found in the US.  Only jet-stream speed can deliver fallout just a day or two max apart.

Muehlheim.Kaerlich_Germany_weekPreOct2015_spikeWithinDisturbance_ValidatedSo, quickly… Nullscholl @ 250 hPa for Oct. 15, let’s say 1200 UTC… what’s along the pathways….  Same deal: slow down occured along the path in North America, and if you trace the jet stream all the way, you find that it passed over the Fukushima region that day, as well as the 3-4 days before (so, again, Fukushima being the leaking faucent from hell that it is… it’s POSSIBLE.)

Oct15_2015jetstreamOf course… This is just scribbles on a wind map…   But it did make me think it’s Fukushima yet again…   Southern Finland, the Baltics, Northern Germany certainly did see a slowdown in the jet stream those days… and that jet stream also fanned out before the US West Coast and…   The jet stream surely was blowing right over Northern Japan again back then…

It’s a bit odd to notice that apparently I feel SO COMPELLED to investigate this that it doesn’t even matter that I reduced my audience to zero… 

We know from the Polish data, shared in previous blog posts, that the 1st and especially the 3rd uptick (the latter being that on or just after Oct. 25th) had stronger ALPHA and BETA components, while the middle uptick was more pronounced in GAMMA:

Wlodawa_Poland_GammaAlfaBetawe know from German data that Bismuth-212 (on Oct 20) was probably in some of these fallout clouds:

PotsdamGermany_Spike_Bismuth212_Oct20-21_2015The decay chains that show Bi-212 in  it, show a vast amount of possibilities:  http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/083.212/index2.full.prod.html

Th232_Bi212But one thing is certain: there’s LEAD being added to our environment.  (Far from certain, but ‘baffling’ it isn’t being invesigated more deeply…: look up ‘lead poisoning‘ and see if you find some overlap in the symptoms of various marine fauna found dead or malnourished in  the Pacific… )

!-> Finland…:  And preceding these Oct 14-15 upticks, we have the detections of Cs-137, Cs-134, Ac-225, Ac-227, and (stragely again) Cobalt-60 during a brief October 11-13 sampling window.   IF (always a big if) these are all connected, and the 3 upticks in the past 20 days are also coming from the same source, then that Zirconium-97 detection on Oct. 25-26 is surely not to be ignored, either…

zirconium_97_detected_northerngermany_oct25_2015bThis means, given the very short half-life of Zr-97, that, with no room for doubt unfortunately, that a neutron-spewing Uranium-fission event occurred at the very most 8 days before October 26, 2015…  Could be a venting nearby?  Sure.  That’s also a possibility.  But given the timing across both North America ánd Europe, a localized source that just happened to release this peculiar isotope right at the time that much other stuff is blowing in… not as plausible, in my somewhat-biased opinion, than that it came from afar.    Is Fukushima still fissioning?  I think so.  Sometimes I doubt everything I think, so… Whatever.  But I do think there’s fission-flare-ups happening underground, and they’re venting gasses out in an attempt to keep the mess from blowing open in a giant hydrogen explosion, or worse…

(But, for perspective, I’m really just sitting in a tent in the Colorado Rockies, writing down mere thoughts on my laptop…)

What else…?

A correlated minor uptick of both Radon-222 and Cesium-137 on Oct. 22 in Cyprus could be related, but is not by itself all that special:

Nicosia_cyprus_EndOct2015)Cs137_Rn222That Cesium-134 was detected right on Oct. 25 in Nürnburg, Germany is significant, though:

Cs134_detcted_Nurenberg_Germany_Oct25_2015Note that the Bismuth-214 graph below it (in blue) has a data gap the day before.

A look at some peculiar data from Greece hints at this set of disturbances may have begun just before October…  (But, then again…., I suppose if you keep looking you find that this is all part of “the new normal” and accidents were being covered up before Fukushima just the same…)

The Helliniken, Greece monitor is obviously callibrated to be sensitive to the energy levels that are affected by sunshine: you see ’em go up and down in a 24 hour cycle.   Here’s 5 months of recent data.  All looks fine all summer:

Hellinikon_Greece_June_July_Aug_2015Then it briefly gets messy at the end of September, and the monitor turns off its data flow.  Right as it comes back online, last week, it’s accompanied by a massive spike of over +650 µSv/hr on Oct. 19, 2015, and another unusual uptick on Oct 24, after which they must have done a calibration, since the daily cycle flat-lines more-the-less after that:

Hellinikon_Greece_Sept-Oct_2015Where was the wind coming from on the spike and disturbance days?  Greece on October 19th?  Play around with it @ http://earth.nullschool.net/#2015/10/17/1500Z/wind/isobaric/500hPa/orthographic=-104.21,86.66,305

Some parts of Turkey are currently getting a dosing…

WesternTurkey_tillNov2_2015But more importantly:  Although there is still a lot of information to be found, as a whole, it’s clear (or so I fathom…) that anything that could make it undeniable that we’re IN a (long-term) “radiological  emergency” is being systematically hidden from the public through data omission, manipulative calibrations and apparent algorithms at work within the data processing software…

So the question begs:  Who benefits from having this covered-up?  Why?   

Is this an intentional slow-motion high tech extermination being carried out?   (One that wouldn’t even become apparent until a decade or many decades from now…)    Or are they basically “merely embarassed” that they totally messed up?   But if the later were they case… they wouldn’t want to continue the madness, would they?   I’m honestly at a loss for what could possibly motivate them to hide the data.  It’s not that by hiding data they’re preventing the consequences of the pollution…      I mean…

EURDEP: Of Data Gaps the Sound of One Maroon Dot… (Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Latvia, Sweden, Finland DATA)

It’s a pass-time thing.  I kinda enjoy it… cruising around EUREP and noticing how rigged it is.  I guess they must have thought we’ld never notice, or something.   There’s a lot moe to be seen than I’m pointing out.  SOme strange non-correlations between alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation, more data gaps during disturbances, and so forth.

All this is just “for the record”…   

Alright, quite often maroon dots on the EURDEP map are just high values, such as the frequently seen super-brief spikes to just below 6000 nSv/hr or to just below 600 nSv/hr, which I’ve come to see as “just a calibration”, but rather often they’re clearly NOT thát.

Take this one in Western Germany, just east of Belgium, for instance:  That one maroon dot there is right near a nuclear power plant (one of the German plants that is merely ‘scheduled’ to be turned off, but is actually still active now).  But that doesn’t mean the uptick is from that plant, it may just be one of the better monitors…


The spike is right in that area that some calibrations sometimes happen (most, however, seem to be spiking to 560 nSv/hr, or so); Anyhow, the spike is validated and is clearly part of a disturbance that goes on for several hours:


When you take the same data and graph it so it doesn’t show the high spike, but the lesser variations, you see it right away:


That spike is obviously part of a disturbance, and so that likely means that a hot particle hit the monitor.  Now the question is: WHY would one monitor spike and all the others, very nearby not give a hint of anything unusual happening?  Let’s see what the neighboring monitors show…

Some only show the slight disturbance, which cannot be differentiated from natural variation due to radon progeny, cosmic rays, Be-7, K40-soil dust, etc.  But it COULD also be something else, something artificial.  Here’s just a minor disturbance…


Many other regional monitors, however, show data gaps strikingly right during the spike time, as well as during other seemingly insignificant disturbances:MKother2 Wolken Lahnstein Bornheim Munstermaifield

Are you getting the picture?  Systematic data omission is the name of the game.  It’s the same in Russia, it’s the same in the US.

— — — ” Fiction break “— — —

Um… Dear governments working in cahoots with the nuclear mafia, err industry, I’m reporting a pothole on your monitoring network…

…Like they give a f*cking rats ass about giving a couple million móre people cancer…  As long as it can’t be PROVEN (which, to do it up to the highest scientific standards with reasonable  low uncertainty is actually near-impossible given the too many variables and various complications due to the large amount of time that passes between “cause” and “consequences”…), so they can’t be held liable, so they’re off the hook, so they don’t care.  And onward the mad machine goes…

— — — — — —

The uptick was also observed on many other monitors across Europe (see also various additional data spread through the past dozen blog posts, or so):Benedeneeuwen_NL

So, EURDEP (or the IAEA…) apparently has this so-called “data exchange platform” set up in such a way that very few spikes ever make it on the map.  I don’t know how many examples I would need to gather for it to sink in for the public and politicians who fell for the nuclear industries’ LIES, to get it that the entire monitoring networks of the industrialized world are A SCAM.  They are not meant to alert and warn people.  To the contrary: they are part of a perception management strategy to give the illusion of safety through systematic omissions of anything of concern.

Moving north on the map, from Poland to Baltic Russia, to Lithuania, to Latvia, a Swedish Island, and eventually some Finnish data, all showing the same time period:

LublinPoland OLSZTYN_NorthernPoland Bialystok_NorthernPOland Wlodawa_Poland_GammaAlfaBeta Mikolajki_Poland_GammaAlfaBeta_Oct2015 BalticRussia LithuaniaOffLine

This one data graph is a zoom-in on just 2 days:   At one of the Lithuanian monitors, they calibrated, measured for some more hours and then turned off the data flow, as the entire country went off-line on that October 14th afternoon…Calibration_normal_thenDataCUT_Lithuania_midOct2015

Back to month-view, in Riga, capital of Latvia: data gaps on that Oct. 14, 2015 and disturbances just before and after Oct 25, with minor spikes and correlating data gaps:Riga_Latvia Riga_Lativia_2 Baldone1 Baldone2_Latvia Latvia_

Finland often has interesting isotope-specific data:

Here’s a reverse correlation between Be-7 and Cs-137, suggesting the Cs-137 is likely in local low-flying dust from Chernobyl deposition. Be7_Cs137_reverseCorrelation_ImatraFinland_Oct2015

Two not-very-common detections of Sodium-22 (Na22), which, like Berrylium-7 can be cosmogenic (made by interaction with cosmic rays at very high altitude):Na22_October2.5_2015_Sodankyla_Finland_Cs137 Na22_detection_wBe7_Imatra_Finland_Oct2015

And that’s it for tonite…  Conclusion?  Not really…   Same old, perhaps: EURDEP is rigged to hide radiological emergencies.  We’re IN ONE.  (I’m not kidding, unfortunately…)  But I suppose they don’t want anyone to know.  Pretty freak’n incredible how the masses have been put to sleep somehow… I’m having a bit of a hard time wrapping my mind around the widespread apathy.   But then again… It’s not like I’m doing anything about it either.

Would it make a difference if I turn my blog back on?  I doubt it.I seems to have the exact same effect.  “Like, you know”, pretty much no effect…  “lol    ;-P”

It is a bit more peaceful without the trolls, though.  Thát I appreciate… :-D

EURDEP: 48 hrs versus 1 month data: Finding the Data Outages

October 31, 2015

One of the ways to spot data delays is to view the whole EURDEP map (Via Online Radiation Monitors) with “48 hours of data” and then “1 month data” and look for the difference.  You can see which monitors are not shown on the 48-hour data map.

Another clue is often also when an entire region only shows the lowest (yellow) value.  If that occurs in the same general area as data outages, something may be in the process of being covered-up by the IAEA-programmed algorithms that make sure no one will ever notice a major nuclear accident again…

  • 1-month data (Gamma, max value), with monitors missing from the 48-hour map circled:


  • 48-hour data mal (last value) with areas showing almost or entirely the lowest value in squares:Oct31_2015_48hoursThese could be areas to focus on first when doing a quick inquiry in what may be going on radiologically.

Detected in Helsinki Finland in October 2015: Cesium-134 & 137, Actinium-225 & 227, Cobalt-60. + Detected in Hamburg, Germany: Zirconium-97.

Detected in Helsinki, Finland in October 2015:

  • Cesium-134 & 137:HelsinkiCesium134.137_Oct2015
  • Actinium-225 & 227:


  • Cobalt-60, here shown with a repeat of the Ac-225 data:

Helsinki_Ac225_Co60_midOctober2015+ Also unusual:

  • Likely unrelated, but noteworthy nonetheless: In Northern Germany (perhaps the only region that monitors for this isotope publicly (?)): just the othe day, a (rare!) detection of Zirconium-97 , here shown together with data for Bismuth-214:


What is Ac-225, Ac-227, Co-60 and Cs-134/137 blowing together in a whiff of apparently radioactively polluted air in Finland?   I don’t know.

Also looked at:

Flashback to May 2015

One of the things I find interesting is that the last time Zr-97 was detected it was in Angermünde, which at the time I assumed was the only Zr-97 monitor.  So clearly, there’s more, but they don’t show up unless something is detected.  This time it was at Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel.

Now, here’s the striking correlation:  Last time (See extra details in June 6, 2015’s  “Pink Unicorns beach themselves on the shores of Lake Dystopia“ and June 7, 2015’s  Yup… Fukushima is Still Fissioning – A Nullschool Wind Data Analysis of May 2015 EURDEP-Finland/Germany Radioactive Air Samples), Finland observed I-131, Co-60, Nb-95, Ru-103, Cs-134, Cs-137 in the sample period May 22-25, 2015 (@ Kotka in the south, and @ Rovaniemi in the north), and Zr-97 was detected just 10 days prior in Northern Germany: May 12-13, 2015.   

Given Zr-97 has a  half-life of only 16.744 hours, and in 11 half-lifes it’s no longer Zr-97, which makes it an indication of very recent fission.  To refresh my memory, here’s the record of the previous detection:

WHatTheHellIsZirconium97_doinginGermanAirMay12-13_2015At that time in spring 2015, I wrote about this,

“This means, with no room for doubt unfortunately, that a neutron-spewing Uranium-Fission event occurred at the very most 8 days before May 12, 2015. 

A little quote from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fallout#Half-life:

“[…] A large amount of short-lived isotopes such as 97Zr are present in bomb fallout. This isotope and other short-lived isotopes are constantly generated in a power reactor, but because the criticality occurs over a long length of time, the majority of these short lived isotopes decay before they can be released. […]”

The latter to which I would like to add:  UNLESS, of course, you’re dealing with a completely out-of-control open-air reactor sinking into a Pacific Ocean beach… […]”

The same applies to the October 25-26, 2015 detection of Zr-97.  And the October 9-10, 2015 sample period during which Ac-225, Ac-227, Co-60 and Cs-134 & Cs-137 were detected was just about 2 weeks before that.

CONCLUSION:  It is not impossible that a significant nuclear fission accident somewhere took place this month of October, spanning several weeks.  Given what I’ve found in the past, however, I consider it just as likely that Fukushima is having some more flare-ups underground.

Maybe we will never find out…  

Yet, strikingly again:  All this data was VALIDATED.  Some unusual release occured.  There is no doubt about that.  Where it came from, however, would take massive amounts of time to figure out (using Nullschool, etc.).  But it is known at the top data access levels of the CTBTO & IAEA, who remain as silent as ever…

EURDEP data suggests something serious happened. Aside from data gaps and data delays, highest radiation levels in at least one year observed in many parts of Europe…

Oct. 27, 2015

From ‘The Department of So What?‘, this just in:

According to this NY Times artcile (Oct. 25, 2015, “Radioactive Dump That Burned in Nevada Had Past Troubles“), which mentions an radiation release incident at the Nevada Test site that reportedly occured on October 18…   It would be disturbing if some of the spikes that occured in Europe this past week were somehow connected, but one never knows, so I’m mentioning it:

Anyhow, many record spikes precede the 18th or simply couldn’t reach Europe that fast, so we may just be seeing evidence of yet another incident, accident (maybe even a major one), or more Fukushima fallout coming down… Impossible to figure this out over dinner….   But who cares about data anyhow…  Figments of some monitor’s imagination… Are you entertained yet?    Here’s some more, ‘Enjoy!‘, and think happy thoughts while you ponder what it could posibly mean…

This week’s Gamma-T max at EURDEP shows upticks and spikes that appear to all occur in a fairly narrow time window at the end of October, with year-records being set in many places tis past month.

Some monitors sampled (data further below) include these:


  • A “glitch dot” spike of up to over +13 µSv/hr at this location in Hungary:


  • In Wick, UK, north-eastern Scotland, the otherwise usually eventless Northsea air shows this late October 2015 +0.1 µSv/hr uptick, the highest in over a year (aside from data gaps that might hide even higher spikes):


  • Highest shown value in at least one year at  Botev Peak in Bulgaria:


  • Highest shown value in at least one year at Poschiavo / Robbia SMN, in the Swiss Alps:


  • A new year-record also at this inland location in Portugal:


  • One of the most sensitive networks, that of Luxembourg, went silent after October 21, 2015, never reassuring… (48 hour data): EURDEP_Luxembourg_Off_endOct2015
  • On individual monitors it looks like this (month data):


When you look around Luxembourg, you discover that there is a reason behind this outage.  Spikes, upticks and disturbances can be found during the same time just across the border on monitors that are not as good as the Luxembourg network at showing fallout (just my impression).  On the two German monitors, shown in the composite below, you see yet another very clear example of data gaps corresponding with spikes and upticks at exactly the same time:


This further documents what I have been saying all along: EURDEP, just like the US’s Radnet, is rigged to hide radiological emergencies.   As I’ve said before, I suspect the IAEA, which was involved in writing the data processing software is responsible for this, likely in cahoots with the so-called nuclear watchdog agencies of the respective countries.

  • Meanwhile all the way south in the Mediterranean, at the lovely Cyprus monitor, a curious minor uptick in 100% artificial Cesium-137 is accompanied by a slight uptick in supposedly all-natural Radon-222…    Interesting, wouldn’t you agree?  Hm…:Nicosia_cyprus_EndOct2015)Cs137_Rn222Perhaps this could some day be part of solving the puzzle of what is coming down all over…  (Of course, the complicitly silent folks at the IAEA and their affiliated super-sentive network at the CTBTO surely know exactly what is in the air and where it is coming from… but they’re focussed on obscuring the truth, not on laying it bare.)
  • On the east coast of Bulgaria, at Achtopol, the recent spike comes close to the still-standing year-record from almost precisely one year before (Oct 2014 & 2015 side by side):


-> What stands out here, though, is that, obviously, a baseline adjustment occured.  Browsing through the months shows that this occured on November 26, 2014, right after the mid-November radioactive uptick wave that set off many monitors across Europe, and just before (or RIGHT as it happened?) the covered-up Zaporizhia meltdown.  Interesting, maybe someday?  BaselineAdjustment_AchtopolBulgaria_inNovember26.2014

  • A glitch dot of a whopping +51 µSv/hr in Halsteren, The Netherlands, just a little bit north of Antwerp, Belgium, curiously around the same time as so many other upticks across Europe…  Makes it hard to dismiss it as just an instrument error…


    Also notice that a callibration must have occured on October 22, narrowing the radiation range to a tighter line…

But who cares?  Any journalist can check these monitors him or herself and try to figure out what’s happening.  But until the IAEA tells them exactly what they’re supposed to say, these fucking lapdogs in all these mainstream and so-called alternative media are not even going let out the slightest growl or peep.  Ever.  It’s been this way for so many years.  Greenpeace, Helen Caldicott and Beyond Nuclear give their little talking points, year in year out, and somehow – I actually don’t get it – they and their supporters find this sufficient?  Nothing changes.  Decades go by.  More reactors are built.  The cover-up is all-emcompassing…  Maybe the pro-nukers don’t actually wish to wreck havoc with this planet’s ecology and… -God man… imagine… maybe they actually genuinely believe all the bullshit they’ve been fed?

Anyways…  Feels good to post this to ‘no audience’.  Imagine I freaked someone out and caused undue stress?  [sarc.]  If the origin of this spike is a new accident somewhere, if it was the innitial ground-touching cloud-spike, then data gaps will appear in about two weeks as more of the cloud will begin to touch ground level.  The acute symptoms might be called “the flu”, and the  eventually-apparent cancers, heart disease etc. won’t show up until a decade or later anyhow…

SO… Time to go shopping…  like there’ no future anyhow…

And the beat goes on…

Some Recent Peculiarities at EURDEP’s ‘STATION 9’ in Northern Italy

Doing laundry at the Hooper Pool, Southern Colorado – October 19, 2015

Do I need to mention the DISCLAIMER when no one else can see this?  (Just in case some day I make it all visible again… perhaps…)

Location of this monitoring “network” for Rn-(220 + 222), which also monitors Gamma, Beta-ART and Alpha-ART.  I will be graphing all 4 together for the past 1 year.

Station9_ItalyThe whole year, split in two times 6 months, each showing Radon, Gamma, Beta & Alpha, with some scribbles added by me:

Station9_italy_Rn220.222__Gamma_AlphaART_BetaART-annot2The above data graphs is shown, below, in 4 sets of 3 months so you can see the details without distractions yourself.  Commentary below each.

Staring in October 2014:


Next 3-mnth period:


  • The only notible observation here (above) seems to be the uptick in Alpha-Art (I think that means Alpha radiation from artificial radionuclides), a couple days after Gamma data is brought down to zero  briefly (which is basically a variation of a data gap), at the end of the graph above, just after April 12.  It’s too early to be connected to the Chernobyl wildfires, which came at the very end of April. (See my documentation of that in a series of posts that began with April 29, 2015, Chernobyl’s Radioactive Forest Fire. [April 29, 2015] – Location on map, Wind & Radiation Monitoring links).
  • A zoom in on the data that Beta-Uptick week shows
    • Radon and Alpha aren’t correlated here:


  • At first sight Alpha and Beta don’t appear correlated, either, but when adjusting the scales ignoring the bog spike, they clearly ARE spiking together:

AlpaBeta_weekaroundApril14_2015_St9_Italy alpha_Beta_peaks_correlateNext 3-month period:St9_all4_3-> Major disturbances at the end of May (2015), with an unusual Alpha spike.  The disturbance is followed by a long data gap in mid-June.

A zoom-in on the spike time:

EndMay2015_st9_Italy_all4The last 3 months to close:

St9_all4_4–> Lots to be seen, but the upticks in both Alpha and Beta in early August stand out to me for being the most unusual.  A zoom in on that week shows disturbances in Alpha, Beta and Gamma that week, during he same period but not correlated peak by peak.  The Beta uptick goes to near 700 Bq/m^3.  Also: just Radon 220 + 222 is clearly not the culprit of these upticks:

earlyAug_2015_St9_Italy_700BetaSPikeIt’s just documentation.  I’ll leave it that for now.

EURDEP – a snapshot of ongoing disturbances…

Very end of Sunday October 18, 2015 – DISCLAIMER

Maybe I should turn my blog back on… If I can’t even abstain from “this bullshit addiction” WITHOUT an audience…  what then actually motivates me to write this?  Am I trying to reach the spooks who can always see what I write regardless of the private settings?  What would be the point in that?

Anyways.  Bad habits die hard…   ;-/  It’s 11:40pm, I’m still awake and swinging by EURDEP (see Online Radiation Monitors) to see if the recent radiological disturbances had settled down.  Doesn’t look like it.  Widespread data outages and major delays, especially in the north.

Never a good sign when several countries impose a 48-hour delay in data relay…:

Vaike-Maarja_Estonia_3mo_G_preOct19_2015 Looked at dozens of monitors more, and had 3 months of data for each ready to paste together…  but then EURDEP’s well-programmed research-delay mechanism threw me this computer-freezing tactic:

EURDEP_delaytactic_Oct2015And so those hours of work were -poof- gone.   So it goes…  It’s part of their game.   No way to even take a screenshot, I took a photo of it, shown above.

The only additional things I had saved were detections of Cobalt-60 (Oct. 10, 2015 in Helsinki), Thalium-202 (a very odd one; Sept. 7-8, 2015, also in Helsinki, Finland); and in May (2015) a whiff of Iodine-131 at the far-northern tip of Norway, not validated, but interestingly again corresponding with an (unvalidated) uptick in everyth else synthetic they measure there, ánd with Be-7, which hints (again) that it could have entered the ground level scene from higher up…:

Cobalt60_Helsinki_Oct8_2015 Thalium202_Thorium232__Helsinki_SEPT8_9_2015 I131_Be7_correlated_NV_May4_thru11_2015 No idea where those radioisotopes came from.  Not even going to guess.

The stalling tactic worked, though.   I went to bed instead.

Why write blog posts when I’m invisible to ‘an audience’…?  Hm…  That’s some freaky stubborn addiction I’m dealing with here…

End of an Era: DONE BLOGGING

 — “The End.” —

— — — — — — —   — — — — — — —   — — — — — — —

From October 5, 2015 till ***(?)*** this blog was Private-Access Only (“GONE”).   Many posts added after October 5, 2015 originally appeared here without having an audience.  

— — — — — — —   — — — — — — —   — — — — — — —

I’ve stepped back from engaging the issue with information, and from the “information war” in general.   Even took my blog down, likely for good.

Some reactions:

Wow! I’m stunned. Your voice was one of the clearest and most thoughtful.  How can we ever hope to educate the people if those with real data and the stones to say it back away?

D., an apparently disappointed blog fan in Alaska, in an Oct. 25, 2015 email, responding to my view above.

As I put it elsewhere:

http://nuclearcrimes.org/ was a far better site than mine.  Andrew pulled the plug too.  A loss?  I thought so, for sure.  (Rig Rad Run is a good read, though)  Does not having his blog around make a difference?  Not fundamentally. 

Here take this in:  http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Current-and-Future-Generation/Plans-For-New-Reactors-Worldwide/ […]

A screenshot of an excerpt of that link above, for the record…:

RealityCheck_theyDontGiveAFuckResponse from a fan [w/ my emphasis], J.:

[…]  if all the good people — not even all — did that, we would be fucked.  fucked.  the people that were new to the game might as well slit their throats.  operate on their own thyroids prophylactically with a rusty knife. 

as  much as i knew on 3/11 was nothing compared to what i know now.  how did i learn it?  from people like you.   […]  it is the education of the rest of us that is at stake.  and in my opinion we are all seriously the poorer for not having your blog open and accessible […]  and i am not the only one.  i found out about your having gone dark from someone else, who referred to it as your having pulled the rug out from under all of us, and who figures what’s the point, and is themselves giving up, no longer posting.

[…] the unsuspecting clueless individual just arriving on the scene, now or because of some future bullshit, has a much harder time of it because of this, and that much harder time translated directly into units that measure quality or length of life. […]   think about that, please;  please reinstate your blog to the world. […]”

I don’t think it’s possible to use a rusty knife and still consider the operation being carried out “prophylactically“, as “prophylactical” means, “intended to prevent disease”, but anyhow…  I appreciate the dramatic tone.   My sentiment about my blog, in the grand scheme of things, can be summed up as this, however:

Our scribbles online are like cats chasing a laser point.  They got it covered […]  We are merely providing some entertainment.

In that vein, occassionally friends remind me, by disrespectfully pointing their smartphones / de facto surveillance cameras towards me, that the miltary-industrial platform for data mining, full-spectrum surveilance, biometrics database building and behavior modification, aka ‘facebook’,  is also still mildly entertaining…


Meanwhile, I find it hard to believe people don’t give a sh•t about freedom, privacy or true democracy, all of which don’t have the slightest chance of ever (re-)emerging with manipulated social media as part of the communications fabric of a society…  But all that viewpoint has accomplished is further isolation, all while mainstream society revs up its mad momentum…  Anyhow…   I’m unplugging from the whole internet thing.  One step at a time.  This blog post may be one of my last…   But then again… I’ve felt this way before, and came back… So I suppose: we’ll see…

The main reason I cut my blog off on October 5, is a feeling, or combination of feelings, including a sense of utter pointlessness, questions about the nature of the medium itself, as well as a pinch of quasi-paranoia.  [But on the latter, just in case it’s NOT actually unfounded, that “paranoid part” I won’t even touch on.]

There some other side-“reasons”, though,  like…

[Not sure why I would even write this, ’cause if I keep my blog ‘private’, no one else besides “me, myself and I” will read this anyhow… Hm…

Maybe I’m just decompressing from a 4+ year-long blogging quasi-addiction…  and thís post is just a spasm on the road to full-stop.   I hope so…]



  • For starters, it’s much more beautiful in the real world!

Now THERE’s an always-valid reason: to step away from this damn computer!

Some photos taken this past week (mid-October 2015):

midOktober2015_northernSLV_hwy285_ DSCN8071 DSCN8064Some photos were taken on another recent drive to Home Depot in Cañon City (on the other city of the mountains).

DSCN7735 DSCN7973 DSCN8081That is reason enough in and of itself, of course:  Cut off the blog and spent all that time hiking and seeing places instead!  (If I don’t cut it off, I’m simply still ‘busy with it’, and thát spirals out of control into blog posts all too often.  (Case in point: this blog post!)  For me, it’s pretty much one or the other.

I’m choosing the real world of the energetic multidemensional and biological web of life.

Maybe after a lengthy decompression, I could leave this blog up and ‘let it be’.  MAYBE.  But certainly not yet.   I’m still going through the equivalent of internet withdrawals.  *I* am so damn entertained myself, too, you know…  ;-/  Then there’s other aspects.  Not important in and of themselves, but they add to the feeling of irrelevance.

  • Relatively Tiny Audience… & Just Not Worth it…

Blog Stats show that since March 14, 2011, shortly after the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster began and I revamped this blog (which right away started with the pages, Radiation Units and creating easy access to Online Radiation Monitors, followed by some “popular” posts such as comparing the fallout maps of Chernobyl-1986 versus Fukushima-2011), it saw some 350,000 views total until early October 2015. 

That may sound like a lot to some, but when I think about it, it’s all pretty much irrelevant.  For more influential blogs and news outlets flood the web with pro-nuclear propaganda.  It would be DELUSIONAL to think that “we”, completely independent bloggers with only our drive to motivate us, would stand a chance to counter that steady stream of bullshit, the algorithms that promote certain content over other, including making entertaining distractions go viral, etc.  

We simply stand no chance.  At least: not thís way.

Irrelevant but:  If recent views/visitor stats are an indication of exposure, then approximately (based on the average of 1.91 views per visitor (2015 data, so far), and 1.82 views per visitor (2014), rounded down) some “180,000 visitors” passed by.  If half were frequent returners (just a guess), that might mean not even 90,000 individuals may have been exposed to my blog, max.

Given the popularity of posts that have nothing to do with Fukushima (scenery photos, blips of Buddhism, some news commentary, ‘fiction’ a la Hedgehog on a trip (“Hedgehog Trip (2/5): An Elephant in the Denver Airport!” has been viewed over 2,900 times, for instance, some posts about the local weather, or some climate science heresy (or is it hearsay?) a la (2011) Why I Question the CO2-driven Global Warming “Scientific Consensus”; and (2014) Global Cooling ahead? (w/ Global Annual Average Temperature Anomalies, etc,…) …, etc…), the actual number of people genuinly inquiring about the realities of the ongoing Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Catastrophe and related issues (like Hanford…) is likely less than 25,000, spread over 4.5 years, or perhaps, at the very most, 15 people per day If that.   Sounds about right given the 100+ visitors/day.

Let me now give the imaginary ‘you’ (me, myself and I) something to compare ‘a dozen or more  visitors per day to:   Just to picking something… Here’s something that has been viewed over 125 million times:

Or here, at least cool and danceable, how about over a billion views to a catchy tune with some dance moves?

The internet, just like television did before, has been turned into a platform for ENTERTAINMENT.  I can try to provide something else, but it’s the wrong platform to have a meaningful effect.

I suppose if I wanted to, really wanted to… shift this pathetically marginal anti-nuclear side-show into some kind of ferocious no-bs mass movement that manages to somehow shut down all nuclear reactors, dismantle the entire global nuclear arsenal, and transform the planetary culture into one that will be able to safeguard or transmute the piles of nuclear waste for the tens of thousands of years it will remain extremely hazardous…, while fasciliating a socio-economic fabric that can accomplish peace and prosperity for all…, then I would need to work at least as hard as the people who’re part the machine working to keep the mess going at full speed…  I would have to work like a madman.   I have niether the energy nor will to do so.  And still, for the internet to be part of this, I would have to ‘brand’ myself and pitch horrifying facts as being somehow “entertaining”.  They’re not.  There is nothing entertaining about the ecological devastation that awaits us.  Nor can I make childhood cancer or stillbirths look ‘cute’ somehow.   The long-term situation is so dire, it appears even the few experts that ‘get it’, are at a loss of how to be real about it.

better get to work…”

You want clean water?  You wanna keep ancient forests?  You want free electricity?

You better work, mate!

You want free energy?  Anti-gravity?  Heal all your traumas?

You better work, mate!

Oh, sorry, wrong planet…  Here’s “the Bad Bitch of Babylon:”

Of course, that’s just “popular culture“…   But still, that’s my point:  it leaves to wonder… where is this dumbed-down bullshit “culture” of egomaniac superficiality leading us?     We know.   Somewhere deep down, we all know…  And the cognitive dissonance this causes our brainwashed minds is just too destabilizing… so ignoring the truth we do, at our own collective peril…


Basically: I don’t want to be “that guy”.    The very playing field is entertainment-oriented.  If you want to affect mass culture, you basically have to put YOURSELF in the spotlight as part of that.  And I’m not interested in that.  This blog has drawn enough attenion to ME as it was, and that was never actually the point…  Better to have it gone, so I don’t have to deal with becoming any bit more known and what thay might entail

I guess it REALLY has come to this… At least three massive nuclear fission reactors have COMPLETELY melted down and out on a beach on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, with absolutely no end in sight to its leaking of unprecedented massive amounts of dozens of very health-hazardous radionuclides, and the main thing that’s happened is that the perception management apparatus of our totally out-of-control global financial-industrial MEGA death-machine… has taken the breaks off an all-out propaganda war, even to the point of  pushing for MORE of the same nuclear reactors worldwide.

As another blogger once put it:

 “…what do you call it when the evil fascists controlling the media with propaganda find a way to inject stories superficially uncovering wrongdoing, lies, and corruption, but that go over the top, out to lunch, off the hook as it were, thus draining much needed human resources from the good fight, calling the reputation of anyone who held the original hypotheses (not beliefs, hypotheses) into question, and basically obscuring any good research and contributing to what has been uncovered being disregarded by intelligent but conservative minds who might otherwise have given their unbiased attention to the original, rational, non-whack-job inquiry?…”

– Female Faust @ http://femalefaust.blogspot.com/2011/06/link-in-your-mind-cyberattacks-and.html

I’m pretty sure that’s called PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE.   And *I* opt to “back out” in as far as that’s still possible, because, to put it simplistically, I don’t know how to “swim with the sharks”.   Perhaps it’s called FAILURE (my failure to appropriately respond to a seemingly decentralized surreal manipulative and extremely powerful de facto insane ‘opponent’).   I accept my defeat.   We lost, utterly lost, and still utterly losing, with zero prospects of that turning around any time soon.

I have faith in humanity, but at this point that faith is blind.  I see no path forward.

“Oh glory…”  [sarc.]

bruceleefailurequoteAh… I might as well ramble onward…   In the global culture, a madness of complete denial still rules the day.

It really has me wondering, though… What the hell is motivating these people?  Are they people?  Are they terrestrial human beings?    I mean… at thís point… I don’t know anymore, man…  Seriously.  Money and power alone can’t be it.  They can print this funny fiat stuff out of thin air.   If you have any one bit of care for future generations, there’s just some things you wouldn’t do.  Creating piles of nuclear waste, stored “temporarily”  all over the place, even right near meltdown-capable fission reactors in tsunami zones…, often even in SFP swimming pools build at the top of reactor buildings…  and all this without a solution for fail-proof safeguarding all of the  dangerous waste products…, seems to basically be a set-up for ever increasing levels of radioactive contamination.  It’s all too predictable where this is going.  They must know this too…

Do they hate humanity?

hmAnd more importantly… how far do I want to go to expose these criminals?    Until…  Whén exactly?  Whére would I draw a line?   I mean, decades of people doing just thát has done very little.  Blog away…?  Waiting for what?  For something to change?  “haha…”

For the inevitable consequences of “standing your ground” to kick in?  Hand out some flyers while peacefully protesting?

Yeah… great idea…  I think the people who’re not cynical yet never really tried… Or not very hard…

Hehe. ;-)

Hehe. ;-)

Who has REALLY come to terms with the fact that Japan’s “worst crisis since World War 2” includes that “minor detail” that Spent Fuel Pool #4 truly might have “gone up in smoke” early on???  … Somehow in a parallel reality show on TV, that never happened and then and was later presumably (massive PR-operation-style) ’emptied carefuly’…?    See also https://plumegate.wordpress.com/ .  I fell for the PR show.  I don’t know what to believe anyore.  This tóó is pat of feeling I better shut up.  I don’t actually know what happened.  I have some clues, and did a bit more homework on the matter than your average “journalist”.  But bottom line: I don’t know anymore.

… or that when Unit 3 had its mega-explosion (officialy explained away as a hydrogen explosion, even though it was significantly different than the explosion in Unit 2, which probably wás a hydrogen explosion…), that it likely also blew Unit 3’s spent MOX-fuel pool to smithereens?

You can still stare at all the early photos at Cryptome.org (via @ http://cryptome.org/nppw-series.htm ) and ponder what it all means. Knock yourself out…

Here’s a shot of Unit 3, just to pick something more…:

Probably thinking we’re all idiots, back in those days, the good ol’ NY Times put it (sarcastically or eufemistically or what were they doing…???) on April 11, 2011, as this:

“… And while there has been no evidence of dangerous radiation from plutonium in Japan, the situation there is volatile, and nuclear experts worry that a widespread release of radioactive material could increase cancer deaths … […]  … experts are debating whether high radiation readings beneath the reactor vessels indicate that they have begun to leak. It would take full meltdowns, high heat and the rupture of a reactor’s containment vessel to loft substantial plutonium into the air. […]”

Alright, well… We’re 4+ years later and we know it was a complete full meltdown from day one, with extremely high heat and a rupture of the containment vessel…  And…  And nothing.

“In other news…”   Tokyo will host the Olympics, and the athletes will get to “support the recovery” by eating produce from Fukushima…   The Onion can’t even top the news that bubbles out of these cauldrons of hell.

Accurate information about what happened and is happening is being buried in steady streams of misinformation, history revisionism, bullshit non-debates, posers / trolls filling forums with distractive crap, and so on.  And Whatcha think?  Think any substantial amount of plutonium was lofted into the air?  Maybe certainly so perhaps?

Well…   It ain’t rainbows and kittens, but… (in over 4 years…) well over a million did watch the MOX-fuel-filled Unit 3 blow sky-high…  (RT, March 13, 2011):


When you’ve done “your basic homework,” as I have, and you’ve come to what is basically still only a rudimenary understanding of that mess, one thing become crystal clear, though: the disinformation bullshit that’s being spread by apparently pretty darn gullibility (or fucked-up despicably complicit) so-called ‘journalists’ at ‘media outlets’ throughout the world is so over-the-top surreal…

I actually don’t know what to say anymore…

’cause the rabbit hole also goes deep…

Mix in some fiction and some out-there conspiracy stuff, watch enough of it, do some digging into some details mentioned and soon enough… some of it isn’t bullshit nor sci-fi anymore…  The fiction just smoothens the transition of what is already in full swing, I suppose.  Nothing “is coming”.  It’s all already here, in motion.

Lovely skies in this remote part of Colorado this past week…   [sarc.]


Some distraction for my own entertainment…


I am -for real this time, I think…- “throwing in the towel”.   I’m not giving up on this beautiful world that I love so much, but I am giving up the information front.  ‘Cause the whole damn scene sucks.   I’ve said all of this before.  It’s time to simply walk away…

The internet itself has been systematically ruined.  Most people don’t give a damn, cause they’re so entertained…   But we’re not just the stupid uncreative disempowered spectators they’re trying to mold us into, though..   We’re human beings.

The sense I get when I’m really honest with myself reflecting on these past four years during which I spent absolutely ridiculous massive amounts of time, ánd money (for lab tests), ánd received less than $20 in donations total (when the donate button worked), is this:  It’s just not worth it at any level.

This entire anti-nuclear bunch of blogs and forums is just a side-show of utter irrelevance.  We… -if there’s even remotely such a sense of relative unity worth calling, ‘we’, in this insanely infiltrated, manipulated and troll-infested sabotaged online arena, in the grand scheme of things ‘we’ amount to not much more than ‘mere entertainment’.

They got it covered.  

We can point a hose towards the sunset and spray water that way and hope all we want that the sun will be less hot when it rises tomorrow… our hopes, no matter how well-intentioned, are simply delusional.

This blogging route has run its course…  If anything, just like facebook ultimately did with its alienating manipulations, equally ironic perhaps, this blogging has further isolated me, even alienating people who were fine with me before I felt some odd need to put myself out there…  People who just want to “focus on the positive“…  And they are receiving encouragement from every direction to ignore anything that does not fit their imaginary bubble, as if ignorance truly is strength

If YOU can't control it yourself, ignore it. Okay? ... (sigh...)

I don’t dance to that brainwashing note.  So, to add…  as already touched upon:  It may not matter when browsing through tons of cute kitten videos, but…:

  • The Medium Remains the Message.

The internet is in the hands of corporations tightly aligned with the globalist military industrial complex.   The internet, in all its facets, after what may have been its eary brief golden era (the 1990s), has already become one giant apparatus for mass surveillance, behavior modification programming and, especially, distraction.

Just a decade ago, propaganda like this didn't seem quite over-the-top ridiculous yet

Even just a decade ago (shown: 2006), propaganda like this didn’t seem quite completely over-the-top ridiculous yet…

To offer tiny tidbits of (attempted) honest news and (attempts at) research in a vast ocean of distraction only legitimizes the internet.  It is similar to voting in obviously rigged elections.  (Many Americans still partake in the federal farce too, though…)  Sure, it can “make a difference”: MAYBE it can be part of slowing down the march towards a very obvious incredibly disturbing approaching future, like voting for “the lesser of two evils”…

Yet…   Mere participation actually equals surrendering ones’ souvereignty, however.  This (generally unconscious) subtle (but vastly significant) submission is an inherent requirement for engaging the contents of the medium.

40e1424f4364befef24db515ad15fd5cThe telescreen recieved and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever the wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”

– George Orwell, in the novel, ‘1984’ (Chapter 1), written in 1948, pre-computer era.

FB_Stasi I don’t know if I need to come up with some analogies…   If you want to use the facebook medium (the miltary-industrial ‘telescreen’, basically…), you MUST submit to its “Terms of Use”.  No other way.  Similarly, to use the internet, you most submit to its very nature, but you have to do the research yourself to figure out what thát actually entails…

By providing “quality content” (or so I aimed for at times…), I essentially provided more ‘bait’ for a small segement of internet users.   The content is ultimately irrelevant, what matters for the system is that it draws people in to the internet itself.

It’s like I’ve been sowing one part of their fishing net.  It is the very system itself that wins when anyone falls for ‘information’.  It’s just not where the change is going to come from.  In fact, it’s the last place meaningful radical positive change will arise from.

Experiential knowledge trumps information. 

By providing just ‘more information’, by default I’m promoting a mode of being in the world.  It is practically irrelevant that I aim to expose lies.   See, “they”, who’re obviously set on bedazzling people with elaborate lies and pulling a screen of make-belief over people’s perception of the world, require that people first shift their way of being in the world from an embodied experience-based way of being, which includes the arising of intuition and being in touch with clues from the purely and often subtle energetic realms, to one that is information-based, with all the data, “processing” and possibilities for ‘management’ that entails.

It doesn’t look like this, but the overarching achievement of the system when someone “joins the internet” is the de facto neutralization of that individual’s meaningful opposition.   Online, the game is rigged.   Like modern elections or the United Nations, it offers a false salvation.   It is absolutely incapable of changing what must change.  When thát sinks in, the whole thing begins to feel like a complete waste of time.  In all actuality, engaging this medium in some attempt to affect radical positive change is fundamentally counter-productive due to the very nature of the beast itself.   But no amount of data or well-thought-through arguments, could ‘make someone see’ this.  You either GET IT, or you don’t.  And when you do…  You begin to feel like an idiot for spending your days sorting through mountains of data just to back up what you deep-down already KNOW anyhow:

The Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear disaster is WAY way worse than anything they’ve officially admitted so far.  My writing on the subject barely even scratches the surface. 

Worse, this nuclear disaster actually has barely begun.  The bulk of the consequences won’t even begin to show its ugly face for a decade or longer.   There’s some revelations in the Plume Gate documents that hint at those realities ahead.  Suggestive wording, to put it eufemistically, that have since been twisted beyond recognition by mainstream and so-called “alternative” media outlets, through ad nauseum repetitions of deceptions.

Again, this ‘likely mega-deception’ still leaves me speechless: take spent fuel pool # 4, for instance.   I fell for the hoax at first, too.   Wrap your distracted head around it, will you:   It burned up.   Okay?


Click for more clues…

What little didn’t go up in  the inferno zirconium fire and rose high into the atmosphere, melted down.    I think that what went up is still making its way down.  Hence all the data gaps the past several years.  All over Radnet and EURDEP you can see it:  The innitial fallout reaching ground levels was relatively small to what has begun.  Massive data gaps in summer 2012 & 2013, and the spikes they’re showing publicly have been reaching record highs in 2015 on many online monitors since records began.  It takes days of work per monitor to paste the records together and then see the radiological landscape shifting over the years.

The cancer, heart disease and mental distress epidemic hasn’t even begun yet compared to what is all too predictably in store for after 2025.  The true extent of this mess may not become apparent until the second half of this 21st century.   And that’s just the top of the massive cover-up.

A slow-manifesting yet (perhaps even intentional) mass extermination may actually – for real – have been set in motion.


Based on the best information available after 1 week, the US government modeled likely fallout dispersion. For their source term, they included the complete inventory of SFP 4 having been released to the atmosphere…  CLICK IMAGE for more information.


Anyways… It’s freak’n depressing…     I simply need to step away from digging into this, at least stepping back from doing it through thát scientific-conventional-paradigm way…  That’s one of the reasons I’ve pulled the plug on my blog before.  It seems to come and go in waves…   This time, however, the sense that I must QUIT BLOGGING ALTOGETHER feels stronger.

Something much gentler, much more internal, perhaps more ‘shamanic’ is calling me…  It will likely involve many years of dedicated daily meditation practice, and then some.  And it is decidely not calling for psychotropics this time.  This (right now in October 2015) is maybe the most sober I have been in decades.  No drugs of any kind for what is now over two and a half years.  Not even entheogens in a relatively very long time either.  Even cut out alcohol many months ago.

Sober.  Clear.  

All I got to do now is cut off the blogging distraction as well…

I know what I know, though…

which is not like any of the information I’ve been pointing at…

Just as I refered to this still-affecting-me weird experience in an April 18, 2015 post, “Spring Snow PHOTOS. And Why I’m Taking a Break from (Nuclear) Blogging“…   when I “called in” the energy of the Fukushima nuclear disaster… while self-medicated on potent Ayahuasca way back then on that beautiful sunny day in mid-November 2013… on a Fukushima beach about 15 miles from those molten-down-and-out nuclear reactors…

It feels stupid to repeat, as I have nothing to add, and still know of no way to delve into this publicly in some sort of helpful way… so to pointlessly repeat myself again, I experienced some things for which I still have no words.  Almost two years have gone by…  The disorientation has worn off, for the most part.  I’m still alive and have managed to keep some kind of debilitating mental breakdown at bay.   Still… I feel that all my words, my entire blog in fact, is one giant attempt to run away from “what happened there”… So there’s still thát, too…

No need to waste any more words on it.

Then there’s that weird world of access to my blog being messed with.  It appears, at least every now and then, that there are people, or perhaps just computer programs, that mess with access to my blog, without authorization to access my blog.  I do not know who they are or how it’s done.

Unrelated to the interference:   While my blog is ‘private’, no one should be able to get past this “blog’s front door”, which doesn’t get counted as a view.  This is the view of the door when it’s basically locked:

ProtectedBlogTurns out that when my blog still comes up in Google searches, and that viewing something left in Google Cache does get counted as a ‘view’, explaining the blog stats after shutting access down:


traffic NOT reduced to ZERO

The overall feeling I’m left with, however, is that the medium (blogging, or increasingly even the internet in general) is  no longer what it’s made out to be:  I can say all I want, sure, yet somewhere else is decided whether or not access to what I write needs to be suppressed or not.  So, basically, I’ve been engaging the “information war” on a rigged platform.

With an ultimate goal of “bringing a peaceful end to the misguided nuclear era“, which truly is my aim, this medium can only fail.  Its very infrastructure, from the hardware of communications networks, servers and fiberoptics, to software and sharing avenues, is in the very hands of the (pro-nuclear!) globalist military industrial complex.  Again, to think it isn’t is delusional.   There’s no way to get positive and comfy about this.  The situation is thát dire.

  • My Wayback Machine archive ROBOTS.TXT disabled?

Here’s another oddity:    So I shut down my blog around noon on Oct 5, which is 11 am in California, where WordPress is based.

Late evening on Oct 6th, I wanted to look at an older version of a blog post and went to the Wayback Machine, an internet archive.  Many people have been saving many of my blog posts for exactly such cases where a blog is taken down or censored.

I got this message:

DamnRobotsSo I looked into this robots.txt thing.  Since it had already been applied, I added robots.txt to my blog and that showed me WHEN exactly this had been done:  Oct 5, 2015 @ 3:11 pm.    If that time is California or Colorado time, it happened within hours after making my blog private.  It that time is UTC time zone, it would correspond with 9 am the same day in Colorado, thus even preceding making my blog private!    I thought only the owner of a website could do this?   (I tried it out on some bs fluff site, and I was unable to make it un-archivable.).  So… what the hell?  How was this done?

RobtTextAdded_wthIt is stuff like this that could eat away many more days of my time if I were to get to the bottom of it.  But is this really how I want to spend my life?  (NO!)

Anyway, obviously,  ‘someone’ decided to erase (or at least make inaccessible) ALL versions of my saved blogposts on the WayBack Machine…, the very backup I thought I had in case I would be censored… (even if I’m “the censor” -hehe).   This was actually part of why I didn’t think much of taking my blog down.  Hm…  I figured that those motivated enough would find most of it still in that archive anyhow.  Kinda sucks that’s actually not the case anymore…  Hm…

  • Good Bye ENEnews…

Always a bad idea:  I had a look at ENENews, this time due to an email and saw the comment thread started by “or-well” (Oct 6 @ 8:37am EASTERN standard Time) he/she had referred to @ http://enenews.com/time-bizarre-strandings-along-west-coast-alarm-bells-ringing-reuters-species-dying-record-breaking-numbers-officials-declare-emergency-animals-washing-severely-emaciated-sickened-parasites-ex/comment-page-1#comment-711889

I (“MVB”) added a message just so no one would start spreading wild speculations or assumptions:

ENEnews_finalComment_a ENEnews_finalComment_b ENEnews_finalComment_c ENEnews_finalComment_d

Based on a couple comments and a half dozen emails, it’s clear that some people will miss my blog… ;-/   Or, in case I “lose it again” and turn this stupid blog back on…, “missed”.

If this post is visible, it means the blog has been reinstated (for your distraction and entertainment, I suppose…).

Making this site visible again would probably mean people would read it and watch the videos.  What good would that do?  Seriously.   Anyways, regardless of what I end up doing, I honestly aim to never write another blog post.  It’s just not where it’s at.

EURDEP Radiation Monitor Rigging through Systematic Omissions Continues… / + With 6 Years of Radiation Data graphed for Ritsem, Sweden / (NEW (Public) Record High reached in Sept 2015)

Alamosa, Colorado (USA) — Sept 29, 2015

genetically deformed daisies in the Fukushima region

The happy face of nuclear fission power generation’s “peaceful use'” consequences includes genetic mutations, such as this genetically deformed daisy in the Fukushima region.

Every now and then I still glance various online radiation monitors.

The European Commission’s system, EURDEP, with its IAEA-written data processing software continues to fascinate…

How is it possible that in a cluster of nations that pride themselves on relatively well-functioning democracies, with a fairly well-educated middle class, and various independent oversight bodies, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an organization that’s actively involved in promoting “the peaceful use” of nuclear energy, is somehow allowed to be involved in the monitoring system?  The fox guarding the hen house?  (Obviously because pro-nuclear interests have infiltrated and subverted the very fabric of these societies… imo.)

The EURDEP monitoring system is voluntary, and strikingly: it does not include an alarm function.  It just sits there.  Besides me every now and then, who’s actually ‘monitoring the monitors’?   On their website, it states clearly that EURDEP is joined with “a gentlemen’s agreement” (meaning not binding legally, zero consequences for ignoring the agreement) of continuing to provide data in case of an emergency:

What is the use of such an agreement when the data processing software itself is configured to hide emergencies in the first place?

What is the use of such an agreement when the data processing software itself is configured to hide emergencies in the first place?

As I’ve said on this blog before, I’m under the impression that EURDEP is programmed, however, to turn its public data stream OFF when anything may be hinting of an emergency!   (I think the people who set it up that way ought to be arrested.  But that’s just me.  I can think whatever I want.  Obviously if some illustrious ‘they’ doesn’t like what I have to say, they’ can make my blog pretty much invisible to the world anyhow…)

Once you know that data gaps might hide something significant, you don’t just check on the monitor dots that are colored for a higher value, but also check monitors that show minimum-level colors.  Those often show the data gaps!   And the data gaps may be more of a hint of fallout than anything else.

To illustrate what I’m talking about, here’s two composite screenshots that show data gaps in one place corresponding with spikes elsewhere, which suggests the data gap hides what would otherwise have been a spike as well, perhaps a very unusually high one.

An example of gamma ray upticks at ground level in one area in the Netherlands corresponding with data gaps elsewhere, in Sept. 2013.

An example of gamma ray upticks at ground level in one area in the Netherlands corresponding with data gaps elsewhere, in Sept. 2013.

Example from The Netherlands shown, left: a weeklong data gap in Braakman corresponds with significant upticks during roughly the same period in Vlissingen Haven, while one spike in Braakman corresponds with a data gap at Vlissingen Haven.  Seemingly random “glitch dots” at Braakman in the preceding weeks, as well as seemingly insignificant upticks at Vlissingen were likely early signs of radioactive clouds blowing over higher up (with only heavier particles reaching ground level), only affecting ground monitors when radioactive particles come in direct contact with a monitor.

These brief and often relatively benign-looking gamma dose increases suggest a practically irrelevant risk increase, yet frequent and cumulative exposure to such radioactively contaminated air and precipitation is certain to negatively affect ever more people over the following decades, particularly since most fallout emits beta and alpha radiation (which is actually more harmful when ingested/inhaled), rather than the much-further-traveling gamma radiation which is being monitored for most widely by governments.  Why would the more relevant beta and alpha radiation monitoring be kept to an absolute minimum, unless the whole point of the monitoring network is ultimately to make it easier to deceive the public in times of emergency?    You know what I mean?   That the IAEA was involved in writing the data processing software can hardly be a coincidence, or would it?

Slow downs in downwind-Fukushima jet stream wind patterns often correspond with radiation upticks and, strikingly, data gaps. Above: an example from Alaska in June 2015.

Slow downs in downwind-Fukushima jet stream wind patterns often correspond with radiation upticks and, strikingly, data gaps. Above: an example from Alaska in June 2015.

It’s the same in the United States:   US EPA monitors are systematically turned off (showing data gaps on the public interface online) during times that significant upticks could be expected.

On the right is an example from Alaska that shows that right during upticks on the Alaska coast (@ Anchorage), there’s data gaps inland (@ Fairbanks), where – due to more turbulance – higher upticks would be most likely right then.

Next, I’ll pick some EURDEP monitors and see if anything can be found.  First some more repetition (from my Nuclear Blog Post Archive):

!–> To better gauge the significance of such tiny gamma upticks, however, check these two blog posts:

Sampling some EURDEP DATA graphs:


EURDEP_map_NorthernAtlantic_monitorsCHecked_Sept29_2015GammaNOTICE: Most of the data is ‘not validated’ and the folks at the European Commission who apparently think it is just dandy to censor radiation information when it matters most would like us to accept their word for it that no matter what is shown, it would not indicate an accident (See their disclaimer @ http://eurdepweb.jrc.ec.europa.eu/EurdepMap/Disclaimer.aspx.)


  • I’ll start with creating a long-term graphed record for Ritsem, Northern Sweden (picked for being both far north in relatively pristine air far away from big industry and higher up in the mountains), marked on the map above), which has been streaming data for the public, albeit sprinkled with data gaps, since July 9, 2009.  So, below, we can now look at just over 6 years of data.  I plotted the graphs with the settings for Gamma External Radiation,  ‘1 month prior to’ the 28th of a month @ 23:59 UTC’ (one minute before midnight on the 28th, so it doesn’t give me error messages for Februaries), digitally/manually pasted together to show 3 months per line, with my annotations added (large red arrow-triangles indicate the beginning of a data gap):

Ritsem_20 Ritsem_19-> As you can see above, already two weeks right after data streaming began, there was a data gap, then a significant uptick on August 10, 2009, which reached mid-way between the orange line of 210 nSv/hr and the 240 nSv/hr line (225 nSv/h-ish) and two very brief data gaps in the following two months.    (I added the blue and orange lines for summertime reference.)

After those brief data gaps, a period of 7 months followed with no spikes nor data gaps whatsoever.   Except for early February, there are practically no disturbances during the snow-covered winter months…

Ritsem_18Late winter into spring 2010, below.  Look at thát:  I pressume that “normal clean winter air in a snowy landscape” would look like this: practically no disturbances whatsoever, followed by a quick melt in mid-May:


In summer 2010, there are a series of disturbances from mid-June to early August, with two data gaps within the same period.  Some, or perhaps most, of the disturbances may be natural radon-progeny rainouts:

Ritsem_16I am convinced, however, that a very significant release of radioactive particles & gasses occured in 2010.  Given the “fallout signatures”, I suspect it happened in May or June 2010, with the consequences of that reaching ground level the following half year.

I’m not sure which accident this would have been, but I did find this possibility, mentioned in, Jan 27, 2012, The Telegraph (UK), “China denies nuclear accident”, from which I quote (my empasis added):

“[…] China has never experienced a major nuclear accident, although there have been small leaks of radiation from some of its nuclear power stations. The last occurred in May 2010 in Shenzhen in southern China‘s Guangdong Province at the Daya Bay plant, the oldest of China’s 13 operational nuclear reactors. Managers at the plant failed to inform the public of the leak until three weeks later. Subsequently, Beijing denied that radiation had escaped but it was confirmed by a Hong Kong power company with a share in Daya Bay.[…]”

If that’s the culprit, then I suspect that May 2010 Chinese nuclear accident might have been quite significant, perhaps even a partial or full meltdown.

In the long-term record of my 4-part series, suggestive evidence points to far-more-frequent-than-publicly-admitted significant radioactive releases have obviously been happening well before March 2011.   See these blog posts for more:

This unsettled 2010 summer was followed by a couple more days with disturbances here and there, including a significant uptick in mid-September 2010 (which reached also mid-way between 210 and 240 nSv/h), and then a series of many long data gaps, starting mid-October 2010:

Ritsem_15That situation (of an unsettled baseline mixed with data gaps continues until early February 2011:


All appears, albeit very briefly, back to quiet in snow-covered Ritsem…

Then on March 11, 2011, the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophe begins in Japan.  It is very obvious from scrutinizing the long-term patterns, that it takes awhile, months and even many years,  for the magnitude of a release to become apparent on a ground monitor that measures merely for gamma radiation…

After 3 days there is a small drop, possible a calibration adjustment in preparation of expected fallout clouds.  A blip of an uptick is seen on March 21.  And then a larger whiff probably hit ground level in mid-April 2011, as evidenced by the 4-day data gap:

Ritsem_13(On the other side of the Atlantic, in May 2011, the US EPA declares the disaster is over, no “levels of concern” have been reached and they return to ‘routine’ sampling, abandoning the extra monitoring of precipitation…)

Disturbances here and there, including a few upticks (again up to mid-way between 210 and 240 nanoSievert per hour) and a significant two-week data gap in July 2011:

Ritsem_12Upticks reach the 225 nSv/h midpoint region at least three times during autumn 2011, amidst choppiness:

Ritsem_11Snow begins to shield the ground, yet a continued choppiness is apparent:


Spring’s snow melt is not visible in 2012, as a massive 9 MONTH DATA GAP obscures what was taking place from mid-March 2012 all the way into December 2012, hiding the entire summer of 2012:


Some minor unsetlledness following the end of January 2013, and then again very frequent data gaps in spring 2013:

Ritsem_8 Ritsem_7

How high the summer 2013 spikes would have gone remains a mystery, just like during summer 2012, as an even longer data gap ensued, this one OVER A YEAR, from June 9, 2013 all the way into mid-July 2014, the following year:

Ritsem_6_noDataBack online, data gaps continue, with a few upticks, one reaching just above that mid-way point, showing a value ABOVE 225 nSv/hr for the first time in early September 2014:

Ritsem_5The major uptick observed over the Mediterranean and especially in Germany in mid-November 2014 (which I traced back to ongoing releases from Fukushima) is not visible this far north, at least not on this monitor, but the (covered-up, officially denied) major radiation release from the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant (ZNPP) in Ukraine surely shut down the data stream for this monitor for part of November 29-30, 2014:

Ritsem_4Most of the winter remains a mix of somewhat choppy/unsettled, and quiet weeks as well:

Ritsem_3 Ritsem_2-> A mostly quiet spring 2015…  After the snow melted at the end of May 2015, first all remains very quiet, as if the worst is behind us.

At the end of July one significant uptick almost reached that mid-way point.  In summer 2015, the first full summer that most data is shared with the public again since 2011, there’s just 3 very short data gaps.

Then, a new record spike on Sept 18-19, 2015: touching the 240 nSv/h line for the first time, followed a week later by another uptick:


That public-allowed-to-see new record high took place less than two weeks ago.

It’s Sept 29, 2015…

And the beat goes on…

My conclusion remains the same as it has been for awhile:  EURDEP is rigged to hide data that would indicate the seriousness of a radiological emergency.  This has been going on for many years prior to Fukushima, likely since the Chernobyl nuclear accident of spring 1986, when the IAEA shifted into public relations overdrive to hide the awful truth of the misguided technology it has been pushing since its inception in the 1950s…

Iridescent Clouds (Southern Colorado, Sept 28, 2015)

FromFacebookSupposedlyOne of those “cool clouds” days… ;-)   My camera (just a cheapo pocket Nikon CoolPix S5200) sucks at nighttime photography, so I don’t have photos of the lovely Lunar Eclipse (last night).

The first three photos shown below I took from between Crestone and the Great Sand Dunes NP in Southern Colorado’s San Luis Valley, @ around 8,200 ft. altitude, earlier today, Sept 28, 2015:

DSCN7704On this next photo you can see the phenomenon’s location in relation to the sunset:

DSCN7708Because the pink and the turquoise stood out the most, it did not really look like a normal rainbow-like refraction.  It lasted perhaps about a half hour.

This is about as colorful as it got:

DSCN7713I don’t know about you, but *I* didn’t grow up seeing these kinds of clouds on a fairly regular basis.  Now, granted, I grew up in Belgium, not above 8,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies.  Yet, there’s people that grew up around here that claim these kind of ‘weird clouds’ are far more common here now too, compared to a decade or so ago.

Some say it’s because of all the stuff airplanes put in the sky, so-called ‘chemtrails‘.   I still think that what many chemtrail spotters call ‘chemtrails’ are just contrails. (For an example of what passes for normal in many high-air-trafic areas, see also my posts Arrival Aerials and Skies and Skies over Belgium, both from 2012.  The reason ‘contrails’ are so common now (so much that they can make a sunny day ‘partly clouded’) is simple (or at least so I fathom): AIR TRAFFIC.

For a clue as to how much air traffic there is these days, check http://www.flightradar24.com.  A snapshot of what was in the air this evening (@ 6:19pm MD) over Colorado, Utah, and also showing most of Kansas:

AirTrafficSnapshot_EveningMondaySept28_2015_ColoradoAndSurroundingsThat, of course, doesn’t mean that some airplanes aren’t spraying something.  I don’t know.

Personally, yet again revealing “my little obsession” and the possible bias that comes with that, I’m more inclined to wonder whether or not radioactive fallout, including more particles and gasses at higher altitude, could be a factor in making this colorful phenomenon occur more often. (?)

So this evening, I read a bit on the mainstream understanding of these kinds of ‘mother-of-pearl’ clouds.  Nowhere is it suggested that something else than just tiny ice crystals higher up may be a factor:

Cloud iridescence is the occurrence of colors in a cloud similar to those seen in oil films on puddles, and is similar to irisation. It is a fairly uncommon phenomenon, most often observed in altocumulus, cirrocumulus, lenticular clouds and cirrus clouds. The colors are usually pastel, but can be very vivid. Iridescence is generally produced near the sun, with the sun’s glare masking it, so it is more easily seen by hiding the sun behind a tree or building. Other aids are dark glasses, or observing the sky reflected in a convex mirror or in a pool of water.

Iridescent clouds are a diffraction phenomenon caused by small water droplets or small ice crystals individually scattering light. Larger ice crystals produce halos.

If parts of clouds have small droplets or crystals of similar size, their cumulative effect is seen as colors. The cloud must be optically thin, so that most rays encounter only a single droplet. Iridescence is therefore mostly seen at cloud edges or in semi-transparent clouds, and newly forming clouds produce the brightest and most colorful iridescence […]”

Turns out the reason for colorful Polar Stratospheric Clouds is nitric and sulphuric acid bonding with water vapor to form crystaline hydrates. (see page 109 and after in Stratospheric Ozone Depletion and Climate Change, which I stumbled upon when wondering if there were any reports of more colorful clouds after the massive atmospheric  nuclear bomb tests of the early 1960s).   I glanced at some data of the radioactive sulphur released by Fukushima

I pondered the claim by chemtrail activists that “they’re spraying mainly Barium.”  Stable Barium isotopes (Ba-134, Ba-137, Ba-138,…) are also the decay products of radioCesium, a main part of any nuclear fallout, from a nuclear bomb or ‘accident’.  Cs-134 becomes Ba-134; Cs-142 becomes Ba-142, which eventually becomes Ba-138; The most common radioactive fallout ingredient, Cesium-137, decays into Barium-137.

Since radioCesiums are deposited or blowing around anywhere downwind from nuclear bomb tests, as well as downwind Chernobyl, Fukushima, etc., you’re bound to find the element Barium if you test water or soils for it.   And given the massive amounts sent into the atmosphere by the ongoing Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear catastrophe, it’s not unlikely that the stratospheric dust layer was supplied a fair amount of radioCesium, which would result in trace amounts slowly making their way down to lower layers into the troposphere and eventually ground level.  My skepticism about some of the elements of the chemtrail conspiracy boil down to this: Just because it falls from the sky does not mean an airplane put it there…   (I would even go further: What if the chemtrail cospiracy were promoted to distract from what may really be going one and keep the topic in the fringes?)

Well, I don’t know…    So many factors that would need to be looked at…  Maybe someday when I have more time for this, I’ll look into it a bit more.  But it is my personal impression that cloud irridescence, as well as mammatus clouds, occur far more often than they did in previous decades.   I suspect nuclear polution might be a contributing factor, but I have no proof of that.


pretty colors…

As Radioactive Clouds Drift Over Europe, Kazakhstan’s Saiga Antelope Suddenly Die by the Tens of Thousands Again… Connected?

Salida, Colorado (USA) – Sept. 4, 2015

BREAKING:  (Yahoo News, Sept. 3, 2015):  “60,000 Antelopes Died in 4 Days — And No One Knows Why“, by .

“[…]  Bacteria clearly played a role in the saigas’ demise. But exactly how these normally harmless microbes could take such a toll is still a mystery, Zuther said.

“The extent of this die-off, and the speed it had, by spreading throughout the whole calving herd and killing all the animals, this has not been observed for any other species,” Zuther said. “It’s really unheard of.” […]”

In other words, 3 entire months have gone by, and they are still exactly where the stood on the matter when half the global Saiga herd perished in May 2015: “clueless”.

Interesting timing, no?  Again corresponding with widespread data gaps on radiation monitors all over Europe and the USA…  (More examples of recent radiation data, below in this post.  See also my Nuclear Blog Post Archive)

!!!-> For context details see my extensive June 18 2015 post,

The “Mysterious” mid-May 2015 Kazakhstan Saiga Antelope Die-Off – aka “Do Not Mention Radioactive Fallout…


Quoted from the Yahoo article (my emphasis added):   “[…]   The females, which cluster together to calve their young, were hit the hardest. They died first, followed by their calves, which were still too young to eat any vegetation. That sequence suggested that whatever was killing off the animals was being transmitted through the mothers’ milk, Zuther said.

Tissue samples revealed that toxins, produced by Pasteurella and possibly Clostridia bacteria, caused extensive bleeding in most of the animals’ organs. But Pasteurella is found normally in the bodies of ruminants like the saigas, and it usually doesn’t cause harm unless the animals have weakened immune systems.

Genetic analysis so far has only deepened the mystery, as the bacteria found were the garden-variety, disease-causing type.

There is nothing so special about it.  The question is why it developed so rapidly and spread to all the animals,” Zuther said. […]”  — from the same article @ http://news.yahoo.com/60-000-antelopes-died-4-days-no-one-122940463.html, with my emphasis added.  And also:

A similar mass die-off of 400,000 saigas occurred in 1988, and veterinarians reported similar symptoms. But because that die-off occurred during Soviet times, researchers simply listed Pasteurellosis, the disease caused by Pasteurella, as the cause and performed no other investigation, Zuther added.

Within a few years after Chernobyl, and then ‘mysteriously’ again… after four years of non-stop leaking from Fukushima.   Hm…  Coincidence?  Perhaps.  I don’t know.   But I still dó find it unfortunate that this avenue of scientific forensic investigation is not persued aggressively, though.  My email, mentioned in the previous blog post on this matter has remained unanswered, and ALL mainstream reporting thus far has remained completely devoid of mentioning even the possibility of a link with nuclear fallout.   This being Kazakhstan, the Soviet era equivalent of the Nevada Test Site in the US, that’s double-odd…

Sept 4, 2015, 5:30 pm – ADDED after posting INSERT:

And what if… symptoms right before before those mammals actually died included some of those known to also be part of ‘acute radiation poisoning’, such as a bloody nose?  Coincidence?

  • Smithsonian Magazine, August 13, 2015, “What Killed Over 134,000 Endangered Antelopes? – Experts are closer to an answer“: “[…] The saiga succumbed to something that left their corpses with swollen bellies and blood in their noses and mouths, reports Dinara Urazova for Tengrinnews. […]”  and back then, a few weeks ago, they could still broadcast the anticipation, “[…] The experts also preformed necropsies — animal autopsies — to see if they could find the cause of death. While the nature of the infection has been agreed upon, the experts still haven’t concluded which bacteria is responsible. […]”, now that they know that bacteria is not a deadly one…  “the mystery” remains:

What could possibly have weakened their immune system?


Could there be some “clues” to be found in reports such as…

Get my drift?

Somehow…  it seems possible fallout REALLY is a factor…

Now…  Isn’t it darn peculiar this topic is entirely avoided by the “experts” and all mainstream media?

Some more radiation data graphs from Radnet (USA) and EURDEP (Europe)

Be aware that the data has usually not been ‘validated’ and both the EPA’s and EURDEP’s disclaimers make it overly clear that even if the data looks alarming, it’s not.  EVER.  I have a DISCLAIMER too:  I insist you think for yourself.  So please don’t take my word it that there may be a causal link between these two (still possibly unrelated) phenomena.

Tx.)

Back to Europe:

  • I switched to MONTH data (pre-Sept 4, 2015):

Mikolajki_Poland_EURDEP_Sept4_2015_1month_Gamma Botosani_Romania_EURDEP_Sept4_2015_1month_Gamma GehlBerg_GermanyThe following Monthlong data was retrieved on Sept 4, 2015:

Last Icelandic monitor still reporting.  All other 3 are off-line:LastMOnitorStanding_IcelandGreenland data is unusually unsettled for such a pristine region, with 2 massive spikes at the onset of ‘disturbances’ that are most likely part of precipitation deposition.  I suspect this is falling as snow, as the overall dose rate drops amidst the spikes.  The reason I don’t think the super-spikes are all calibrations is because of the disturbances following right after.  For two monitors I plotted it twice: once to see the low-dose changes and once to see how high the spike went:  The first major spike COULD be a calibration, but the second one clearly isn’t:

Back to Europe:  Note the region, plotted time periods (x-axis)  and gamma radiation dose rate level (in nanoSievert/hour) and how not all y-axis values are graphed the same.  Notice how the data gaps often correspond with super-high glitch dots or disturbances elsewhere.

The other day I mentioned the data delay from Germany (screenshot of the EURDEP map in (Sept. 1, 2015) “Data Gaps accross EURDEP, amidst Odd Spikes in Luxembourg and Greenland“, which thís post is basically an elaboration on.  Most of the data has been filled in, now revealing the exact time of what remains concealed:

  • I also quickly checked back in time for a few monitors, here showing two examples of data for 6 MONTHS.

Veles, Macedonia:


Data Flow was turned off to the public on August 22, 2015. How high would the spikes go if they showed what happens during data gaps?

See any trends?  :-/

Herenhoek’s, The Netherlands: (added red line @ 0.160 µSv/hr):

Zeeland_NL_6months_preSept4_2015EURDEPI hope that my efforts to make it easier to glance all these data examples in a blog post (rather than you spending the many hours I spent to retrieve these data sets on notoriously crash-prove government systems) is somehow helpful.

I don’t really have a conclusion anymore:

I vacillate between pure scientific curiosity, vast unspeakable sadness, and an undercurrent of bewilderment, wondering if perhaps, for purely selfish denial-based comfort reasons, I better ignore this situation…
