How hard is it to say, "Avoid the rain"?
This is the biggest story in the world right now, inundating the US under a plume of chronic (long term) radiation exposure. We have only half our monitors working, internal memos show the EPA is LITERALLY laughing about raising exposure limits to industrial exposure levels, and radioactive fallout is raining on our people and crops.
NISA raised severity levels to acknowledge the truth about how much radiation exposure we've all been facing. Officials said they raised the incident level because of the cumulative amount of radioactive particles released into the atmosphere. WHERE do you think that ATMOSPHERE traveled?
Have you read about infamous "Japanese Airship Bombs" from World War II? Do you know why it was effective for the Japanese to simply tie a bomb to a balloon and let it fly into the upper atmosphere? Where do you think these bombs were headed? Read your history, people.
I have been saying from day six (when the radiation first hit LA) that we should be avoiding the rain on the west coast-- especially after the "hydrogen" explosions probably sent stored spent fuel rods airborne.
Everything we've suspected has been admitted as true. Yet, we have mysteriously refused to release reagents in front of the plume, which was recommended by international scientists. It would have caused a rainout over the ocean instead of millions of West Coast Americans.
We should have been told to avoid the rain.
It's not only in the air, it's in our food. Government confirms radioactive iodine in California milk samples. They say the levels are safe, at the same time they are raising the acceptable levels to industrial standards for citizens.
I'm not saying our food supply is in danger, I have no idea.
The government has only have 12 radiation monitors in California, and only 5 are operational! NONE of them can detect radioactive iodine. The US has NO monitors that can measure radioactive iodine instantly, and it takes 5 days to get the results if they are even possible to achieve.
The rain referred to in this video was the "rain out" to the west coast 6 days after the explosions. As a documentary and scientific filmmaker, I am less concerned about the coming rain than I am about the larger implications of EPA standards, lack of monitors, and lack of information.
The EPA is raising the bar on the acceptable level they say the population can absorb safely.
A nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90;
A 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and
An almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63
Rain across the USA had fission particles iodine, cesium, barium and krypton confirmed but nobody seemed willing to give the public any advice for fear of causing panic or getting fired -- even our Surgeon General.
Excuse the reference, but officials tell people to wear condoms for safety "just in case", but it's too personal to tell them to wear rubber boots and a raincoat or take other precautions?
God Bless Japan, the USA and the people of the earth
