(San Francisco) August 8, 2015 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected people this week around the United States and in your neighborhood. Let’s get right to it.
RADIATION CPM* COMPARISON CITY STATE
*Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument.
Partial Counts are noted. Uncounted radiation makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM.

Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week
A new Leader this week in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America is Lincoln, Nebraska with 885 CPM. Congratulations to Lincoln, Nebraska as the Most Radioactive City in America.
The second place win was captured by Billings, Montana this week.
The word “only” is a permanent add to all partial Rad report lines. Right now, all the city lines are partial reports and are therefore reporting Low.
Isotope Count reporting
As Cisco from ENENEWS correctly pointed out last week in the comments to YRTW No 15 all these isotopes readings are wrong – they are universally too low. Cisco was not as blunt; but, he was Correct nonetheless. I agree completely.
These CPM numbers do not represent the actual radiation counts in your radiation weather this week. It is much higher, or worse, than these government certified partial reports say. Use these report numbers as your Starting Point in adding up your daily, monthly and annual exposure from your Rad Weather.
What Cisco wrote:
“If you’re readers are paying attention, these reports are remarkable, because the published radiation counts, single and/or double isotope CPM’s, for those recorded cities/locales are more accurately…100’s/1000’s times more. 90% of those counts published are for one single isotope like Cesium. Since we know Cesium doesn’t travel alone, it is part of an amalgamation and travels in suspension with 100’s/1000’s of other transuranics, plutonium and other equally as deadly actinides, what are the actual CPM’s that are not counted?
Cisco from ENENEWS.com ”
Most radiation monitors report on the radioactive presence of Cesium 137 at the detector. YRTW will report on the secrets the Pros use in estimating the actual Total radiation counts. It is not a pretty picture. Squeamish readers may want to turn to other VeteransToday articles reporting on usual things like wars and people getting blown up by an actual named enemy you can see in pictures.
Turns out there are several numbers to use as multipliers depending on the age of the radioactive release. The first are for radioactive particles freshly released from a reactor. The Total amount of radiation decreases rapidly day by day. At the same time the Lethality goes up for 35 years; then declines slightly and hangs steady for millions of years.
Day One out of the reactor use a Cesium multiplier of 150 Times. After 15 days outside the reactor the multiplier is still about 100 times the Cesium Twins.
The second is for Rad particles that have been outside the reactor for ten years or more. The Total radiation declines to about Five (5) Times the Cesium level. The Lethality is still increasing though.
Radiation types commonly measured by radiation monitors include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Only Beta and Gamma are reported by the EPA and here on YRTW. There are 1,945 other individual Rad elements, only a few are usually mentioned in articles.
For a guesstimate of old reactor catastrophes or explosions use the number Five (5) for your radiation multiplier to get an idea of the total radiation in that old, previous release.
In short, the newer disaster’s Cesium 137 radiation so conveniently echoed by so-called news outlets tell you right away by simple Multiplication how big the disaster really is. Think of it as the insider’s secret code. Multiply away!
How often do radioactive releases occur? The answer is: Radioactive releases occur daily in most reactors.
If you have a lot of money you can buy an Isotope detector that will tell you the name of isotopes it is tuned to detect. They are excellent tools for determining specific Rad elements. More power to you if you can afford one, or a group of you can pony up the Bucks to buy one. In this case knowledge is power. That kind of power can only be bought.
Without it, you have what the Pro-Nukers laughingly refer to in our lives as “A shortened life span.” That means the Pro-nukers are joyfully killing people these 70 years now and have no intention of stopping. I mean, after all, they get rich slaughtering us.
Jeeeez, where is Master Sergeant Woods, 3rd Army Hangman in WWII? We need him to hang these Stainless Steel Psychopaths and their political henchmen.
