Japan Hiding Radiation Readings--No way to calculate U.S. Fallout!
The Japanese government's radiation report for the country's 47 prefectures Wednesday had a notable omission: Fukushima, ground zero in Japan's nuclear crisis. Measurements from Ibaraki, just south of Fukushima, were also blanked out.

Radiation experts in the USA say that the lack of information about radioactivity released from the smoldering reactors makes it impossible to gauge the current danger, project how bad a potential meltdown might be or calculate how much fallout might reach the USA.

Does Not Make Sense !

How can the Japanese "hide" the radiation readings?

It's out there.

The radioactive water vapor / dust / whatever are all out there.

And anyone and his great-grand-mother-in-law can purchase radiation detector to get a reading.

The only reason they would not report them is if they were way high.

I saw on MSNBC tonight that the US was going to begin flyovers to take radiation measurements. It was on the scroll.

Yes but I don't trust our government to give us true readings either. Articles coming out like the one I linked to above showing experts are now saying U.S. will have some radiation according to the map, but still are trying to say "only little bit".

The first article in the first post basically says it all. Japans gov is not giving readings. Without these readings, you can't estimate fallout amount. If our gov finds high readings, I doubt they will say much.

Considering the buyout of KIO3 pills and retailers not being able to get more only adds to the fear of both Governments covering up.

Here is my question for the night. Then its to bed.

What are they doing with all the sea water they keep pumping into these reactors.

Is it all evaporating that fast or is it draining out of damaged areas?

How is the sea water itself not contaminated?

They are really close to the sea, is it draining back into the ocean?

Good Night

The readings are being supressed on purpose and not just by the Japanese government. This nuclear disaster is a bad one. It has potential to affect all life on this planet. The powers that be don't want mass panic. That radiation IS coming to North America.
