Nichols on Nuclear Videos for You
Visit the Your Radiation This Week Year to Date video channel and peruse the Nichols on Nuclear playlist to see these, and other maps of THE RADS IN AMERICA- MAPPED! and much more.
Colorado Springs, Colorado is number one in the US right now having endured 54,954,061 Total Gamma CPM YTD, or Counts per Minute, since January 1, 2017.

CPM and nanoSieverts by City and State YTD
Rad Totals for the States since 2006
These are measured and recorded annual total Rads for reporting cities in the United States since 2006. Year to Date Rad readings for reporting cities are listed. Tokyo, Japan is listed for comparison purposes only.
Most reporting American cities exceed Tokyo in Radiation levels. That was a surprise.
Ten Years of Annual US Radiation Measured Totals
2016 Rad CPM: 3,564,642,064 Gamma CPM 98 reporting cities,
2015 Rad CPM: 3,365,375,052 Gamma CPM in 98 cities,
2014 Rad CPM: 3,535,335,261 Gamma CPM in 98 cities,
2013 Rad CPM: 3,269,359,674 Gamma CPM in 98 cities,
2012 Rad CPM: 3,078,948,452 Gamma CPM in 98 cities,
2011 Rad CPM: 3,332,873,138 Gamma CPM in 98 cities,
2010 Rad CPM: 2,556,628,785 Gamma CPM in 69 cities,
2009 Rad CPM: 1,649,403,564 Gamma CPM in 69 cities,
2008 Rad CPM: 1,179,391,687 Gamma CPM in 64 cities,
2007 Rad CPM: 1,151,948,142 Gamma CPM in 37 cities,
2006 Rad CPM: 145,670,365 Gamma CPM in 19 cities,
2006 RadNet startup.
These are the 24 Hour a day recorded Total Gamma Radiation in CPM and Sievert measured highs affecting people around the United States. Be prepared for a shock, these Year to Date totals are really big radiation numbers.
The Rad numbers are your guide to your exposure to the Rad. How much you already absorbed in your daily life is really hard to find out.
Notice: It is necessary for public health and because the many nuclear reactors are venting radioactive gases and steam at nights and on weekends. All residents should stay inside at nights and on weekends. It’s your life, your choice. The Rad is always cumulative. What you absorbed before now is still with you.
Especially hard hit are the cities listed in YRTW YTD ELE. See the latest Your Radiation This Week or TOTAL GAMMA RADIATION report for the most recent list of the 98 reporting contaminated cities plus Toneri Metropolitan Park in Tokyo, Japan.
New Rad Measurement. Year to Date, 24 Hours a Day Rad measurements are added to the report for all reporting cities. Rad Counts, called CPMs, are in the millions everywhere in the States.
Beta Rad is no longer reported by EPA. There is no replacement nationwide source available.
The valuable Beta Count is history just when we need it most. It was used to track Beta water lakes under leaking reactors.
The Table of Poisoned American Cities is changed. A new Column labeled “Tokyo Equivalent Rads” is added. The acronym is designated TER, the plural is written TERs. One TER is defined as the nSv/Hour measurement at the Rad monitor in Metropolitan Toneri Park in Tokyo, Japan.
The Tokyo nSv/Hour Rad reading gives you an instant and direct comparison of your city to the Rad Monitor in Metropolitan Toneri Park in Tokyo, Japan. All American reporting cities are more radioactive than Tokyo.
Fukushima Liability set by Japanese Court
What? Sue TEPCO and the Government of Japan over Fukushima Daiichi … and Win! Incredible! You bet your bottom dollar!
Lead Attorney Katsuyoshi Suzuki is the Super Lawyer who beat the combined forces the Tokyo Electric Power Company [TEPCO,] a huge corporation and the Japanese government. He and the legal team are to be applauded world wide.
The District Court ordered “the two to pay damages totaling ¥38.55 million to 62 of 137 plaintiffs from 45 households located near the plant, which suffered a triple meltdown caused by the tsunami, awarding ¥70,000 to ¥3.5 million in compensation to each plaintiff.”
As one person wryly observed “it’s a judgement against a shell company and a bankrupt extinct-ed country. So what? there is nothing there.”
As they say, we will see what happens. The Japan Times said “The ruling was the first of 30 similar class-action suits filed nationwide involving more than 10,000 plaintiffs.”
YRTW ELE readers can read the Japan Times article “In First, Government and TEPCO Found Liable for Fukushima Disaster.” Anyone can lookup the case on my Soc Media accounts. See under “Resources” below.
Watch for: Coming up soon. Trying to have kids? The Fertility Rate in the States is Clobbered by the unrelenting Rads attack on Sperm and Eggs, not to mention Zygotes and Fetuses.
YRTW ELE is published every two weeks on Saturday. ELE is an acronym for “Extinction Level Event.” The amount of Rad in the air now Dooms Humanity to a relatively quick Extinction.
Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.

One way to measure radiation which the United States Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] has chosen to use on its radiation websites is in Counts Per Minute or CPM. Each Count is One Radioactive Decay.” Quote from the ‘Your Radiation This Week’ Apr 3, 2015.
