Total Gamma and Beta Rads in 2016XR YRTW ELE in the States

Facing a Dying Nation

Visit the Your Radiation This Week video channel and peruse the Nichols on Nuclear playlist to see these, and other maps of THE RADS IN AMERICA – MAPPED!  and much more.

Alert: The Table has changed: It is a VT Table and more capable; all columns are Sortable. Click on the triangle symbols to Sort Columns. “Sorting” by Columns is only available on the Veterans Today Website. Two Annual Total Columns were added July 29, 2017.

Table of Poisoned American Cities
Total Gamma and Beta Radiation
Per Hour High for 2016 CPM * City

TOTAL ANNUAL GAMMA and TOTAL ANNUAL BETA columns are New and not previously published. These are from actual records for the entire year 2016. EPA records Rad Data 24/7/365. More than 1.7 million records were searched to accumulate these Total Amounts. The symbol “-0-” means No Record was available for a particular city.

Rad Totals for the States since 2006These 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 in Billions of Rad for 98 cities.

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.

YRTW ELE Naming Convention. The “X” Series YRTW articles started on April 22, 2017 and report hourly EPA 24/7/365 Rad Counts before 2017. The XR series is a change from better computers. 

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. I can’t say it any plainer than that.

The 2.1 Billion Beta Rad Reading High recorded in 2006 was an unexpected High level of radiation to just be “out and about.”

As far as I know this information has never been published before to an Unclassified general circulation audience.
The possible number of hourly readings was 8,784 in 2016, a Leap Year. [24X366= 8,784 Hourly Readings possible.] Many of the EPA Rad monitoring stations at the time recorded a high fraction, 90% Plus, of the hourly readings during the year 2016.



If you have a friend or loved one who passed from suspected Rad poisoning, mystery illness or heart attack/stroke that is just life in the Empire of the very radioactive USA.

It’s time to move on. All I can say about the Rad of the past is that the Rad Lethality gets worse the longer the Rad has time to “cook”. This Property of Rad cannot be changed.

All of life on Earth is radioactive by now and it only took about 70 years. This a planetary Death Sentence for all. Everyone is included. There is no way out.


There are 1,946 radioactive isotopes according to the Oak Ridge Nuclear Weapons Lab. In the Earth’s atmosphere all are produced by nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants. There are no other sources.

Lethality is the power to kill and injure. It exists and is measured by humans in deaths and in calculations.

The perfectly odd thing about radiation is the Lethality goes up while the radioactivity goes down. That has killed many a person who only counted the radioactivity.

This is perfectly logical when you recognize radioactive Isotopes change from one Isotope to another for billions of years. The Isotope Uranium changes to Plutonium and many others.

Plutonium is the ultimate killing machine. So bad that the Medical Director of the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, Dr. John Gofman, said “Plutonium 239 is the most dangerous substance in the universe.”

Lethality is why the United States decided to make bombs from Plutonium and to drop them on humans. Nuke weapons are a good way to kill lots of people.

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.

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