So the “French Nuclear Watchdog” IRSN has been busy pitching that “Ru-106 radioactive cloud from Russia” story. Why? There’s NO WAY they’re completely unaware of many other measurements, which anyone with internet can check out for themselves via EURDEP. The data speak for themselves (see below and previous posts): There were/are a lot of other artificial radioisotopes in there besides Ruthenium-106!
Within a week after the Ru-106 story broke, I touched on it in (Oct. 9, 2017) Couple EURDEPs (Ru-106 – Oct.9, 2017), followed up by my discovery that Ruthenium-103 had ALSO been detected, in Czech Republic, and that there were upticks of Iodine-131 and both Cesium-134 & Cesium-137, among others, in (Oct. 11, 2017) RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT Clouds Touch down in Europe: Ru-103, I-131, Cs-134, Cs-137, Pb-210, Na-22, Be-7 Radioisotopes SPIKE in Czech Republic, Hemisphere-wide Data Gaps & Disturbances!
So, like anyone else, I wondered, (Oct. 12, 2017) Where did the radioactive wind come from?, but I couldn’t figure it out. Shifting winds, too many data gaps and general data ‘noise’. But the upticks and data gaps were clearly véry widespread, I’d say hemisphere-wide even. A month went by and I documented radiation data from Europe (European Commission’s EURDEP) and the USA (US EPA Radnet). The other day I added quite the amount of 3-month gamma graphs in (Nov. 11, 2017) The Guardian on that Ru-106 cloud in early October 2017: “Nuclear accident sends ‘harmless’ radioactive cloud over Europe” (+ EURDEPs, Nov. 10-11, 2017), which adds to all of these data blogposts of the past month:
- Couple EURDEPs (Nov. 7, 2017) and (also Nov. 7, 2017) 2 years at monitor FR2605_LB0KRS805MA_41_SIT_GM (NPP Perimeter, Rhone Valley, France – 47.7º N, 1.6º E)
- Couple EURDEPs (Nov. 5, 2017)
- Inconmensurable EURDEPs (Nov. 3, 2017),

Besides making such data much easier to see, if I have anything to contribute to this story, it is that the French “watchdog” IRSN’s claim that the radioactive cloud only contained a trace of the Beta-emitter Ruthenium-106 is simply false. (See radioisotope-specific data below, again.) They’re lying by omission. Thus everything else they claim, including their “probable location map” cannot be trusted.
Here’s the gist of my debunking their press release:
1) Czech Republic, which does some of the most regular testing for specific radioisotopes, detected (the same week Ru-106 was detected across Europe) spikes of Ru-103, I-131, Cs-134, and upticks of Cs-137, Pb-210, Na-22, Be-7, (see also repeated graphs below) a tell-tale mixture of definitely a major radioactive cloud released from an active fission nuclear reactor, NOT just some “likely just a pharmaceutical leak”, “from Russia”…;
2) I-131, Na-22 and Cs-137 upticks preceded and/or followed the Ru-106 detection at several monitors in Switzerland and Norway;
3) Finland, which like Czech Republic posts regular radioisotope-specific monitoring data on EURDEP, interrupted its regular sampling at some locations, with a data gap, including the very period Ru-106 was detected elsewhere, as a result;
4) Unusual spikes are seen on many GAMMA monitors during that first week of October all across Europe, Japan and the United States, with additional waves of spikes, data gaps and unusual values following in its wake this November 2017, further indicating that gamma-emitters were also in the radioactive cloud.
5) Longer-term fallout patterns (3 to 6 months) show upticks of Iodine-131 & Cecium-137 & ‘T-BETA-ART’ (artificial beta-radiation emitters) in July 2017, which wasn’t reported in any mainstream media either. Because it takes time (months and even years) for the bulk of hot fresh-from-a-reactor volatile radioactive fallout to reach ground-level monitors, there’s a serious possibility that we’re looking at the tail end of a far worse nuclear disaster, likely in June or mid-July, rather than in September.
To illustrate the documented points just one more time, here’s a few monitors re-graphed:
- Iodine-131 & Cesium-137 upticks in the past month @ Switzerland:
–> an example of “nothing else detected during the time Ru-106 was measured“, but… (!->) -and I suppose this could be point # 6) thát may have had more to do with strikingly higher ‘Minimum Detectable Concentrations’ (MDC), which on EURDEP is called LLD, ‘Lowest Level Detectable’. In some cases the concentration of a specific radioisotope would need to be more than an entire magnitude more than normal to be detectable right then. Showing I-131 & Cs-137:
But my main point is this: There was a lot more than just Ru-106 in that radioactive cloud, and it’s still coming down… (which is also obvious on many gamma monitors – see previous blogpost(s)):
- Czech Republic:
- 6 months of just Cs-137 data from far-Northern Finland (compare to UK and Cyprus data r. mid-July in the previous blogpost):
- Note the time of the data gaps on the T-BETA-ART & other monitors in The Netherlands:
- 9 months of T-BETA-ART in Northern Italy:
Hope that suffices to debunk that official “only Ru-106” nonsense.
Now the question is WHY are they so keen on pushing a false narrative? What actually happened, or is happening? WHERE and WHEN did it begin (or majorly escalate/deteriorate…)?
