Your Radiation This Week No 54

There is no way to recover from these kinds of exposures. There is no medicine and there is no cure.

April 23 to April 30, 2016

(San Francisco) April 30, 2016 – Good Day, this is “Your Radiation This Week.” These are the Top Recorded Radiation Highs that affected people for the last week around the United States.There is no way to recover from these kinds of exposures. There is no medicine and there is no cure. Millions now possess a shortened life span due to their radiation exposures. What city or country will be next?

Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument.

The Top Reporting Radioactive Cities are listed. The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city reporting is listed last. Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are a portion of the American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM this week.

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM [4]

1,454 CPM, 290.8 Times Normal, Colorado Springs, CO. Beta, Gamma.
1,418 CPM, 283.6 Times Normal, Little Rock, AR. Beta, Gamma.
1,361 CPM, 272.2 Times Normal, Casper, Wyoming Beta, Gamma.
1,269 CPM, 251.8 Times Normal, Idaho Falls, ID. Beta, Gamma.
1,195 CPM, 239 Times Normal, Champaign, IL. Beta, Gamma.
1,167 CPM, 233.4 Times Normal, Raleigh, NC. Beta, Gamma.
1,150 CPM, 230 Times Normal, Portland, ME. Beta, Gamma.
1,143 CPM, 228.6 Times Normal, Denver, CO. Beta, Gamma.
1,125 CPM, 225 Times Normal, San Diego, CA. Beta, Gamma.
1,120 CPM, 221.4 Times Normal, Harrisonburg, VA. Beta, Gamma.
1,095 CPM, 219 Times Normal, Spokane, WA. Beta, Gamma.
1,063 CPM, 212.6 Times Normal, Bakersfield, CA. Beta, Gamma.

1,053 CPM, 210.6 Times Normal, Memphis, TN Beta, Gamma.
1,041 CPM, 208.2 Times Normal, Kansas City, KS. Beta, Gamma.
1,037 CPM, 207.4 Times Normal, Augusta, GA. Beta, Gamma.
1,029 CPM, 205.8 Times Normal, Pierre, SD. Beta, Gamma.
1,028 CPM, 205.6 Times Normal, Louisville, KY. Beta, Gamma.
1,008 CPM, 201.6 Times Normal, Grand Junction, CO. Beta, Gamma.

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM [4]


The Count

Colorado Springs, Colorado is in First place in the countdown to the end of time. Other cities have the radioactive “contagion,” just not as severe,  even though the listed cities all exceed 1000 CPM.



Some 24/7 Rad measuring units are flaking out or are removed from service for various reasons, including political reasons. I encourage the EPA to return them to service. Hundreds have now suffered this fate of oblivion. “MIA 18MthHigh” is a new category under the column labeled Type of Rad. It means “Missing in Action – 18 Month High.” I salute the brave scientists, physicists, techs and support personnel who continue to bring us the latest radiation numbers. Your work is valued and appreciated.

Welcome to Casper, Wyoming, the newest addition to the list of the doomed. Casper entered the list at the surprising level of 1,361 CPM.


Rad Contagion in the States

Colorado Springs, Colorado joins Miami, Florida, Los Angeles, California, St. Louis, Missouri and Billings, Montana as the recent victims of truly spectacular Radiation Counts per Minute (CPM) on EPA Geiger counters and radiation measurement systems. No action has been taken by the US Government however. The nation destroying strength of Big Time Rads cannot be denied; but, the Rads can be ignored till it is too late. You can run; but you cannot hide, the Rads always win.

Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.
