Wednesday, June 1, 2011 provides a working example of just how radioactive the soil is outside the exclusion zone

Uploaded by relief20 on May 30, 2011

"This soil sample was taken by at Koriyama on May 17, 2011. That is 60km away from the plants (30km outside the exclusion zone), 2 months after the earthquake and tsunami and over 1000 times higher than the normal room reading (which is between 0 and 1 at TokyoHackerspace)"
And it's just a small sample to boot.

Edit: The reading is in counts per second. 


  1. For months I have been compiling the best of the best resources on radiation and treatments, they are here: Please comment or send links to sites that should be added.

  2. The average person gets 100, maybe 200 mSv radiation in their lifetime. And cancer is one of the major killers of humans.

    I believe that what they are saying by this video, is that, Ruh-Roh, the corium has escaped beneath the reactor building floor, and is heating and highly irradiating the water, 3000 msV per HOUR!!!!!

    Once retired looking expert guy previously suggested a 50 foot deep trench all around the reactor complex, and then fill with concrete. Very logistically difficult even in "normal conditions" with lots of cheap labor and otherwise easy working conditions.

    This train wreck is nothing less than a crime against humanity. They (TEPCO and gang) keep playing the story lines different, now the story will be ---all the damage was done in the first 1.5 hours, therefore all our later efforts were not to blame.

    It is hard to treat and guard against a continuously dispersed amount of long lived radioactive particles, which is what is happening. A reverse osmosis system for your whole house water supply will help. Around $2500 for raw equipment, plus installation, electrical, plumbing, space. Long term electricity cost and occasional RO membrane replacement.

    The air should be pretty OK in the future, the Rad will accumulate in the soil, water, animals, plants.

    Food supply may be tough to deal with. I don't know the answer. A year or two of storage won't fix this problem.
