Fukushima radiation — it’s here now

From Richard Chomko, via FB:

Likely thanks to the Fukushima disaster, background radiation levels have about quadrupled here in Vaughan. Geiger counter readings fluctuated, spiking up to .42 micro sieverts per hour. Here the meter shows .16. Pre-Fukushima levels were reported to be about .04. This was on Jan. 11, 2014.

The author reports that this was on a day it was snowing fairly heavily. Suspicion is that precipitation brings the radioactive particles down out of the atmosphere.

    “For all the naysayers who said that Fukushima radiation wasn’t hitting the West Coast, here’s a new one for you. UC Berkeley lab tests are now showing high levels of cesium in cattle feed from a California dairy farm that was sent to a lab nine months prior to the test results being received – a long delay that suggests levels are much higher now. Then, the one-two-punch – asphalt along a roadside in the sunny city which catches plenty of rainfall was then measured, much more recently, and a disturbing 3579 pci/kg were found. By anyone’s standards, that cannot just be chalked up as background radiation. Fukushima fallout isn’t just coming via ocean currents. It is in our rain, air and soil now. ” http://www.nationofchange.org/new-uc-berkeley-test-reveals-fantastically-high-cesium-levels-california-roadside-1392911534
