It’s a bit tricky navigating the information on the radiation factors, and we are learning alot about nuclear fission and reactors these days. One thing we DO KNOW, is that govts. LIE, especially when they are, in large part, responsible for a (potential) disaster. And in fact there is no such thing as a nuclear accident, or industry for that matter, without a bundle of lies. In the first few days we saw LOTS of nuclear expert apologists delivering the dubious data on the risk factors. So HERE BELOW we will attempt to navigate and select good resources for you. Our thoughts go out to all the peeps! Stay Informed !

This Post by Matt_Alt – a non-scientific author/blogger living in Tokyo, may help you to understand some basics about reading the counter, understanding a seivert, and helping you decide “Should I Stay Or Should I go ?” Many as yet unverifiable alternative sources are saying Tokyo is NOT currently in danger of fallout, but Who IS and Will BE remains a very unanswerable question !

FRINGE REPORTS:

Update: There are already responses coming in to the report posted below, and we will include them in the comments section. Note: We think it can be extremely valuable to monitor and research what citizens are doing to investigate matters independently. And given the endless examples of bad information that can come from mainstream media (with its various industry agendas and hired experts on nuclear power ), we highly recommend taking the initiative to go beyond the usual channels.  So often, while such stories may not be hard facts, they may reveal useful methods + resources for doing independent research.

Latest Report from Dutchsinse: RADIATION reaches USA – BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA ! March 16, 2011 – 234

(??? Research required ) Would love to hear people’s opinions about this individual’s reports … say all ya want about the alarming tone ( and hasty assessments !), but it does look like he navigates resources exceptionally well…

> Our Initial disclaimer / critique would be there’s little analysis to know how radioactivity carries in any plumes or clouds, and how quickly it’s effects will be dispersed over such large distances. And no analysis yet on how amatuer? these private company readings are. <

Tokyo Electric to Build US Nuclear Plants
The no-BS info on Japan’s disastrous nuclear operators by Greg Palast

We were tempted to put these links below into the Fringe Reports because Alex Jones is extremely unpredictable High-Fructose “news”, BUT Greg Palast is essential ( and can be actually entertaining when delivering even the most painful scoops – a professional Gonzo media navigator). We’re a bit worried that appearing on Prison Planet may prove harmful to his credentials, but this clip helps get some serious information to the Texas lowlands and beyond:

footnote: Btw, this might be an interesting article on Alex Jones in Rolling Stone, but for now, we’ll have to put this on a bookmark for future research on the “infowars” in the US.

We’ve been following closely Michio Kaku’s site(s), but had only listed his twitter feed above. He has very short blog articles posted here at BigThinK – Dr. Kaku’s Universe.

    re: Dutchsinse + radiation levels in California

    Many Thanks to Lee W. :

    I dunno, I’ve been watching radiationnetwork.com and it doesn’t inlcude any counts from bakersfield. I don’t see any elevated counts on any data I can find – radiationnetwork, blackcatsystems, and the EPA’s radnet. The guy in the video doesn’t show any of the data he’s referring to. It sounds like one person emailed him claiming there was a high number and that’s it. If it really happened, (a) they should have at least taken a screenshot, and (b) it could have been a meaningless fluctuation. The blackcatsystems.com page that he shows says right on it, “Readings can be higher for brief periods of time due to normal variations in radiation levels” and “Do not panic because you see a high reading. Someone could be getting invalid readings. Treat this for information purposes only, do not make safety decisions based upon it.”

    OK, I just had a look a the EPA’s monitoring data for Bakersfield. While there isn’t much recorded from the last few hours, I do notice that the levels in Bakersfield are consistently higher than many other places and go up and down more, …all the way back to March 11, which can’t be ascribed to fallout from Japan. Of course, it’s possible that the EPA is issuing detailed false data and/or leaving out certain measurements, but I don’t see any reason to get excited about this claim without something more than we’ve got here.

    I should have said explicitly that the EPA data does not include any high numbers for today. ( thursday )

    There are some missing measurements in today’s (thurs.) EPA bakersfield data, which could be taken amiss by the suspicious-minded, so I also had a look at their Fresno and Riverside data, which are pretty nearby, and they are complete with measurements every hour and placidly fluttering up and down in the same range they have been for the past week.
