Some Nature Photos (SLV – First half July 2015) + Couple nuclear ponderings)

Crestone, San Luis Valley (SLV), Southern Colorado – July 12, 2015

Photos taken in the past 10 days:


After electricity was connected to my camping / building site. ;-)


Complex skies near the Great San Dunes National Park seen from T Road (between Crestone and Moffat, CO)

And some more rain…  If this keeps going like this, it is bound to become one of the wettest summers on record, too.


+ Some nuclear Ponderings:

Wind Patterns and Radiation Monitor Gaps  — Since June 14, 2015, when a jet stream slow-down was in place for this location delivering air that had “passed over Japan some 3 days earlier…” and rain radioactivity mysteriously surged to 10.2 µSv/hr…, since then no rain has measured over 1.2 µSv/hr.  Most stayed under 1 µSv/hr.  The jet stream patterns were mostly bringing in more southern air to this spot…  Although there were some slow-down moments.

Take this example from July 9, 2015:  @,36.51,512


July9_2015_900UTC_NorthernPacific_500hPaNote the locations marked above and the radiation data shared below:

Colorado Springs, Colorado US EPA Radnet, past week:

(Also note the beta gap that stayed after they filled in the gamma data…)

That’s more often the case over the Northern Pacific, however, but nevermind that…  Right?    Or is the US EPA’s ongoing data gap record, rather often coinciding with times I would expect downwind-Fukushima-related upticks,  a hint?

Anchorage, Alaska US EPA Radnet, past week:


ALASKA — Meanwhile also in Alaska…   Adding to my June 22, 2015 blog post,  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; as well as the data gap example seen in the July 4, 2015 post with Fairbanks, AK data in How to scatter plot the EPA’s Radnet data

In the article below, notice that “radiation” and “Fukushima” are again not even brought up as a factor that ought to be investigated in painstaking detail…  What’s up with that?

Added later in the day:   Oh:  There’s mention they’ll test for Cesium-137!

“[…] Wynne thinks the whales may have consumed something toxic… Tests on tissue from one of the whales have proven negative for domoic acid, a biotoxin, and results on two other tests, for Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) and Cesium-137 radioactivity, are still pending. […]”  –  Via ENEnews, July 12, 2015:

My 2 cents:  Just Cesium, huh?   No Beta Spectroscopy? Are they going to find low amounts of Cs-137 and then conclude that it’s not worth testing for anything else because the ‘experts’ say that Cs-137 múst be the most abundant…?  No testing for Strontium 89/90?  No tsting fo various lead isotopes, both radioactive and stable?  Signs of alpha-emitters like Am-241? Po-210?  Neutron activation products like Cobalt-60?  No?  Nothing else?  Really?  Just Cesium-137?  What freak’n farce is this “investigation”?

Perhaps related…:

KazakhstanMy inquiries into the massive Saiga Antelope die-off possibly having a radioactive fallout aspect to it have remained unanswered…:   The “Mysterious” mid-May 2015 Kazakhstan Saiga Antelope Die-Off – aka “Do Not Mention Radioactive Fallout…”  Two months of asking for donations and trying to sell cuddly plush Saiga Antelope, and “lab results coming in every day”…  no news follow-ups have even happened on that mysterious die-off either.

‘Go figure’…

!-> Note on my recent Radiative Rain data —   I may have jumped the gun on stating that ALL the listed radioisotopes in that ‘Colorado Radioactive Freak Rain’ lab analysis where actually present in the rain sample.

It is quite likely traces of many if not most were present, but the uncertainty is too great for some to say this with conviction.   And, goes without saying, but saying it anyways: I do not vouch for statements made by bloggers who run with my data while ignoring the uncertainties, and compounding uncertainties in their calculations.  But that doesn’t mean they don’t have a point.  Examples at:

I will be studying the details more and report back when I have reached more clarity.

I have made all raw data publicly available and invite experts to scrutinize it for signs of anything unusual:

Blog Stats — For the hell of it:

Vienna, Austria is the headquarter of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), but that surely has nothing to do with recent blog stats…  (A nice reverse from the more common lack of traffic from relevant countries…):


Anyhow.   The truth will prevail.

flowerofLifeArt — Here’s a painting of mine, “SeaWindHorse – Blessings to all Sea Creatures“, originally painted in response to the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico spill, and intended as a ‘visual prayer’ for the oceans:

    I took these photos last night , 7/11/2015 , 60 miles north of Cheyenne Wy.
