YRTW ELE Naming Convention. The “X” Series YRTW articles started on April 22, 2017 and report hourly EPA 24/7/365 Rad Counts. The first “X” Series article was: TOTAL GAMMA AND BETA RADIATION 2008 HIGHS No 14X

The YRTW and Total Gamma Radiation series of Numbered articles are always written about the recent two week’s Rad Weather.

Good Day! This is “Your Radiation This Week ” for the Radiation High readings for the year 2012. These are the recorded Total Gamma Radiation and Beta Radiation Highs that affected people around the States.

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 next publication dates are July 29 and August 12, 2017.

(YRTW) – The 2.1 Billion Rad Reading High recorded in 2006 was an unexpected High level of radiation to just be “out and about.” Here is a Summary of the X Series articles Sorted by Year.

Throwback Thursday The Glowing Dawn of the Atomic Age Seen From 1950s Los Angeles [5]

As far as I know this information has never been published before to an Unclassified general circulation audience.

18X 2006
High Gamma Count in 2006: Washington, D.C. 16,343 CPM
High Beta Count in 2006: Washington, D.C.: 2,147,483,647 CPM.
Two billion,
one hundred forty-seven million,
four hundred eighty-three thousand,
six hundred forty-seven Beta CPM. Yea, with a “B”.

20X 2007
High Gamma Count in 2007: New York City 132.662 CPM
High Beta Count in 2007: Atlanta, Georgia 4,834,855 CPM

14x 2008
High Gamma Count in 2008: 506,026 CPM in New York City.
High Beta Count in 2008: 4,601,174 CPM in Nashville, Tennessee.

16X 2009
High Gamma Count in 2009: Pittsburgh: 75,931 CPM,
High Beta Count in 2009: Chicago: 2,478,556 CPM,

22X 2010
High Gamma Count in 2010: 16,361 CPM in Louisville, Kentucky,
High Beta Count in 2010: 2,992 CPM in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

24X 2011
High Gamma Count in 2011: 17,153 CPM in Louisville, Kentucky,
High Beta Count in 2011: 248,188 CPM in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The possible number of hourly readings was 8,784 in 2012, 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 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Your government in the States knew exactly what was going on with the deadly Rads … and they did it anyway. The killed people for kicks – a Crime. There’s about 8,000 Prosecuting District Attorneys in the States – Do your Job!

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 LivermoreNuclear 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 next time. Trying to have kids? The Fertility Rad 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.

yesterday’s explosion, points towards the great white flash that clearly silhouetted mountains to
the east.”
