CA Frackers Spew Nuke Puke over LA
« on: February 06, 2016, 05:49:23 AM »
As if the methane puking out from the busted frack job in CA isn't bad enough, it is apparently ALSO spewing out naturally occuring radioactive material! ::)

I am crossing LA off my list of places to visit on the Last Great Road Trip.  I'm dying fast enough as it is.

Radiation Alert: L.A. Gas Well Spewing LETHAL LEVELS Of Breathable Nuclear Material: “Fukushima Class Disaster”

In a breaking development that has been completely ignored by mainstream news sources, the leaking natural gas well near Los Angeles, California is now reportedly spewing lethal levels of radioactive material, according to a report from Steve Quayle and a group with expertise in nuclear material.

    A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.

Hal Turner of Super Station 95 reports that the well is releasing 1.91 Curies (Ci) of radiation per hour.

    This rogue well is spewing huge amounts of natural gas and about 1.91 curies an hour of natural radioactive material in the natural gas… 1.91 curies an hour is about 45.9 curies per day… It’s a really, really big leak.

    A curie is a unit of measure in the U.S. to describe very large radioactive releases.

The French utilize a unit of measure called a Becquerel to measure radiation levels. A single Becquerel measures the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second.

To put things into perspective, Turner explains that a single Curie is equivalent to about 37 Billion Becquerels (Bq) of radiation:

    A Becquerel is a much more human sized unit of measure… it’s one radioactive burst of energy per second… One Curie is 37 billion Becquerels per second.

    That’s 1.7 trillion Becquerels per day coming out of that natural gas well.

    This is a real Fukushima class disaster and it’s happening right here in the USA.

    …

    In 80 days of fumes at a pace of 1,115 tons per day coming out of that ground… could carry with it 301.2 terra-Becquerels of natural radioactivity… This converts to a resperable… a breathable emanation of 12 million Sieverts (Sv)… 2.4 million times the lethal dose by inhalation.

    Full audio report via Hal Turner (begins at approximately 49:00 minutes)

In short, the leak is massive and researchers at UC Davis have indicated that they have never encountered as much methane in the air as they have over suburban Los Angeles in recent months.

While resident complaints of feeling ill, vomiting and nausea have been chalked off by officials as the result of breathing in the natural gas, it is quite possible and increasingly likely that what they are experiencing is actually radiation poisoning.

According to one report, the radiation levels in the Chernobyl control room following the 1986 disaster reached about 300 Sv per hour. That was enough to provide a lethal dose to anyone in the room within 1-2 minutes.

While the Los Angeles leak is widespread with radiation disbursing across the city, the fact remains that millions of Sieverts of radiation have been released and will continue to be released until such time that the well is permanently sealed.

The following map shows the spread of methane over the Los Angeles area and researchers from Eco Watch report that elevated levels of natural gas have been detected as far as 10 miles from the leak:


For those living in the area, be warned: you are inhaling deadly radiation. And while the dose is not immediately lethal, prolonged inhalation and exposure may lead to a spike in cancer-related disease and deaths over coming years.

The Prepper’s Blueprint author Tess Pennington provides a variety of strategies and preparedness considerations to help prevent and/or mitigate radiation exposure, including Four Proven Supplements for Treating Radiation Sickness and nuclear/chemical preparedness supplies like potassium iodate pills and gas masks with extra filters.

Lethal amounts? Wow. And the death toll from radiation poisoning stands at what number, these months into this lethal poisoning level? 5? 10? 100?

We'll need to wait for the stats on Cancer deaths to come out to ballpark this one.  According to the LA County Dept of Health, Lung Cancer, Colorectal Cancer and Breast Cancer feature in the Top 10 of premature deaths in LA.  If these numbers increase in the next decade, we can assume Frackers are responsible for the increased death rate.

Meanwhile, I have crossed LA off my places to visit on the Last Great Road Trip.

Be patient. You'll have your deaths. Like the ones in Japan, of which you are so fond.

So as usual, this is another molehill being made into a mountain. The claim is lethal NORM, and as we all know a lethal dose of radiation doesn't require waiting half a century to see a 3rd decimal change in cancer rates among those who were working on the location and might have been breathing this stuff the entire time it was happening because they worked there.

Here is the consequence and timing of a lethal radiation dose.

#9 is the one that I remember from my days of interest in the nuclear field.

NORM is called NORM for a reason, you have experienced it, your kids have, your grand parents, your great grand parents, and if you live in New Zealand, you have to worry about radioactive dust storms. But those trying to get some breathless hysteria getting this one going weren't calling it lethal because...I dunno, they aren't trying to garner some attention for their breathless hyperbole?

No it isn't, a Becquerel is a VERY VERY VERY TINY unit, equal to 1 atomic decay per second, or 86,400 per day, 31 million per year (except the leak hasn't been going that long).  A normal human body is radioactive at over 4,000 Becquerels.  "Becquerels per day" is wrong, and I would suspect the pig-ignorant fuckwit that wrote it has already multiplied it by 86,400.
