Maps of Radioactive Fallout

Zerohedge (linked above) provides a variety of different maps of radioactive fallout.

I believe the public needs to follow this issue. There is no safe level of exposure to the radioactive elements being released. It seems clear that the ongoing disaster is uncontained and will continue potentially for weeks.

Kyodo news is reporting that workers at the plant have stepped into water 10,000 more radioactive than normal.

In the same article, Kyodo is also reporting that radioactivity levels in the sea near the plant are soaring

Levels of radioactive materials soaring in sea near nuke plant
TOKYO, March 26, Kyodo

Levels of radioactive materials are skyrocketing in the sea near the crisis-hit nuclear power station in Fukushima Prefecture, the government's nuclear safety agency said Saturday, while the plant's operator has started injecting fresh water into the No. 2 reactor core to enhance cooling efficiency.

According to the government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, radioactive iodine-131 at a concentration 1,250.8 times the legal limit was detected Friday morning in a seawater sample taken around 330 meters south of the plant, near the drain outlets of its troubled four reactors.

The level rose to its highest so far in the survey begun this week, after staying around levels 100 times over the legal limit. It is highly likely that radioactive water in the plant has disembogued into the sea, Tokyo Electric Power Co said....

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING WASHINGTON'S BLOG'S POST TODAY ON THE FACT THAT THE LEVEL and TYPES OF RADIATION BEING RELEASED ARE NOT SAFE

I've been rather crazy busy the last 2 days but I did get a chance to speak to my regional EPA office about the change in the Federal EPA's webpage. Data I once relied on are now gone. The regional office wasn't informed about the change and couldn't find it either. What is going on here....??????????

I think a massive cover-up of the scale of and severity of the disaster is not just happening in Japan, but is also happening abroad.

Think of the food disaster that will occur if California's agriculture is contaminated by fallout! It is a terrifying thought.

Our government was happy to say contaminated shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico were safe to eat after the BP disaster. What makes this situation any different????
