Posted on 03/18/2011 7:18:32 AM PDT by wantobefree
I thought you folks would like to be in the know. EnvirReporter is taking the radiation monitoring readings for the West Coast live on UStream.
Just wanted to get this up here for your reference.
I was watching this earlier laughing at the chicken littles on the cam’s chat. They were all panicking about double digit readings, it needs to be 10K+ on that particular meter before it is anything above background radiation (at least per one non-chicken little poster there who looked up the info on that meter).
Someone please start putting thorazine in the water supply.
It has bounced around from 28 to 52 to 42.
What is considered a dangerous level?
In my mind there is no acceptable level-only minimum and maximum levels a human can tolerate .
But anyone who has even a very slight concern with this here in the US; as personal health risk; is a complete airhead.
The risk of your laptop computer battery exploding, is 1,000 times more likely to cause someone injury.
You absorb radiation from being around other people, from eating foods, and from the ground. Sorry if that is unacceptable to you.
There is a minimum level?
According to a guy on that cam’s chat, it has to be in the 10K range before you have issues. Double digits, and even triple digits are natural just background radiation (the sun, cell phones, TVs, electrical lines, soil, etc).
There is a minimum level?
I believe 78 = an x-ray.
Seeker, you really need to go get informed.
Radiation is all around you ALL THE TIME... its part of the world, and not only that, the UNIVERSE, we live in... Humans did not invent radioactivity, they did DISCOVER it, but it has existed since before the earth cooled and will exist long after its gone.
You are bombarded by radiation your entire life, and your body will be bombarded with it until it rots into dust. There is no such thing as a radiation free existence in nature.
Totally information free link. Without any information as to what the units are, or even what SCALE the meter is set for, the digits are completely meaningless. A waste of bandwidth.
Perhaps you need to read more...That is not what I said or implied.
I know we absorb radiation daily-it’s cumulative amounts absorbed over the years that are dangerous and cancer causing.
Don’t ever speak to me in that way again...Be gone
BTW-I served in the USAF during the 70s at FE Warren as an E-4-guess what it was a nuke base....
It´s pointless anyway.
Yes you will be able to detect the “new” radiation coming from japan once it arrives.
But it won´t make any difference or will have any impact on anyone. Just for example i´m living 1200 KM away from tschernobyl and we got all the “fallout” when i was a little kid because it was raining heavily when those clouds passed by. (btw. the radiation from tschernobyl is still here and detectable)
Yet i´m still here (even with my full hair ;-)
So guess what will happen to you when you are 7000 KM away?
Hint! NOTHING AT ALL!
I understand we have radiation all the time. But the post above stated:
“only minimum and maximum levels a human can tolerate “
That reads there is a minimum level a human can tolerate. That is not true.
Ok...brain...all of you just read whatever you want into my post. You all sit around just waiting to ponce on anyone who states anything that you disagree with.
There are min. levels a person can tolerate. Look it up...
I was trying to understand it. Do you mean to suggest there is a required amount of radiation for a person?
If not (and likely not what you meant) what do you mean by min and max?
You all sit around just waiting to ponce on anyone who states anything that you disagree with.
If we sat around waiting for people to state what we agree with, the echoes would be unbearable and boring.
Btw. did you know that the US did nuke itself pretty often? ;-)
and i´m not talking about nukes detonated under the ground!
Yet you are still here.
