Toxic Tokyo Japan Burn Radioactive Debris

This is an very interesting video and I like to thank my friend FC on the chat from the flying cuttlefish picayune blog for bringing this up. Arnie Gundersen have released a number of videos these last couple of days and it's hard to keep up. Well it's hard to keep up with most of the Fukushima / Japan news. Anyhow this is a interview with Arnie Gundersen done by James Corbett in Japan from Fukushima Update.

☢ Leaking Containment Plutonium Reactor Unit 3 at Fukushima And Collapsed Crane ☢
☢ Christopher Busby Radioactive Genocide Japan Taking Action Save Children ☢

Arnie brings up some new information about the air in Japan. Cesium in air is on the rise. Christopher Busby have also tested and shown that car air filters in Tokyo are collecting high amounts of radiation and he speaks about this in several of his videos.

This new information that Arnie Gundersen brings us is that air filters on houses now have been showing an increase in radioactive cesium particles compared with two months before. And this is alarming because this means that Cesium is now airborne and people are breathing in these particles. The reason behind this is said to be because Japan is now burning radioactive debris, what's happening now is they are in a matter of a fact spreading radiation around and making it airborne because of this. Arnie also goes into what cold shutdown means because it's not really possible to do a cold shutdown when there is a meltdown. The fuel rods are not there anymore and the radioactive corium (radioactive blob / mass) collected at the basement of the nuclear reactor buildings will never cool down below 100 Celsius. And this is what a cold shutdown means in reality, to be able to get a fully functioning reactor units water cooling system down to below 100 Celsius so it wont boil and make steam.

Do I need to remind you that we have been seeing steam coming from the reactor units for months now?
☢ Fukushimas China Syndrome With Radioactive Steam and Media Blackout ☢

I actually read in the local paper a few days ago and it was a short little article going something like this: "Radiation lower at Fukushima, everything's fine" OK there was a bit more to it than that, but that's to sum it up for you. How can people continue to buy this when there is 3 nuclear meltdowns, leaking containment (Unit 3 is a Plutonium MOX reactor) that are blowing out steam and they continue to burn radioactive debris and pump out radioactive water into the sea?

I have been following what's going on in the world for quite some time and I'm talking about what's really going on. For you that are in the "know", and have heard what just came out this October about what's in store for the following years. I'm starting to think more and more that Japan have gone in the way of the Samurai. Time will tell.

Geiger Counters - Radiation Detection Meters - Handheld Radiation Detector

When it comes to radiation detection meters you really have a wide field of gadgets to choose from, however radiation detectors are the most common to use. First of all if you need to know what type of radiation you are looking for. There are Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation detectors. And also there is neutron emission of nuclear radiation. And all these different types of emissions have radiation detectors for a specific type of radiation that you can buy radiation detector for. Some also measure both Alpha and Beta. Others detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma. While others let you measure Beta and Gamma radiation.

What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they might not be best suited for a survival situation where you only need to carry the most important things. However if you have land and want to check radiation around the property and drinking water then these are the geiger counters to get because they are very well built units.

These are the once that you normally see people use. They have different units of radiation detection, because when it comes to radiation there are many standards used. some give the measurements in Rads, while other use Sieverts. Some have the maximum radiation value for the measured radioactivity quite low but they will still give you an idea of the amount of radiation in the area. With the units ranging from between background radiation 0.001 mSv/hr all the way up to 10 Sv/h. Normally a dosimeter will measure radiation in micro siverts per hour. If you were to walk into one of the reactor units at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant you probably would get an error reading from your dosimeter because the radiation levels are so high there.

Note that some places outside the exclusion zone in Fukushima that are too radioactive for people to live in have areas where the radiation levels are above 30 Sv/h. So if you are in a area that have high radiation the radiation detectors would also there go off the scale. However Geiger counters or radiation detectors are still favored as general purpose alpha/beta/gamma portable radiation detectors and radiation detection equipment, due to their low cost and robustness. Most come with an LCD Display that show you the radioactivity in the area. Nowdays you will even get alarm sound and the possibility to connect the device to a computer. Either with a Infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection.

So if you look at the radiation detectors for sale that have this, then these radiation detection meters will allow you to make maps of contaminated areas that show where the radiation is high and low. This also will help you to see which areas are becoming more contaminated over time. With several nuclear reactors in the US and around the world located near fault zones that makes it a danger if a big earthquake would hit the area there is always a good choice to have a radiation dosimeter avaliable. I'm sure many in Fukushima would have been grateful to have dosimeters avaliable at the time of the disaster and I am sure you to would be grateful to have a geiger counter handy when you need one.
