MIC CHECK! GAMMA RADIATION IN AMERICA 2020.10 – HOW MUCH GAMMA RADIATION HAVE YOU ABSORBED?… TODAY?

16 Aug

“Gamma radiation in the wild escaped from nuclear reactors and detonated nuclear weapons.

At the surface of the Earth there are no other sources.

Gamma radiation is and always has been incompatible with life on this planet.

How much Gamma radiation is it? It is more than enough Gamma radiation to kill every living thing on Earth.

The only question is: How much Gamma radiation have YOU absorbed? … Today?” – Bob Nichols

Note to Self,
Monday, October 31, 2016,

Well, Well, what do you know!?

Forlorn little old Bismark, ND, sits up there guarding the country’s border. Against what?

I just watched the entry of detected and Un-detected Rad particles of the Beta and Gamma kind, sneak in over a period of 6 hours. Of course, as always, no alarms were sounded – Anywhere, that made it to the public.

The Combined B&G CPM count was 634 cpm to start. Six hours later it had increased 796 cpm for a combined total of 1430 cpm. [634+796=1430cpm]

Wow! That’s Bad!

The sad part is that this Rad Poisoning is not even a record high increase I have recorded from epa Rad detection machines.

We’re all getting Rad Fried… does anybody give a shit?

Bob

“Regulatory” agencies fell into line to get it all “authorized” during the mind [f**k] end of year time.  It is intensely radioactive, and it gets worse as it decays.

Germany sets new solar power record, institute says

(Reuters) – German solar power plants produced a world record 22 gigawatts of electricity per hour – equal to 20 nuclear power stations at full capacity – through the midday hours on Friday and Saturday, the head of a renewable energy think tank said.

The German government decided to abandon nuclear power after the Fukushima nuclear disaster last year, closing eight plants immediately and shutting down the remaining nine by 2022.

They will be replaced by renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and bio-mass…..

DOE: Nuclear waste move to Nevada to start in 2014

http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/doe-nuclear-waste-move-nevada-start-2014

By STEVE TETREAULT and KEITH ROGERS
LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Trucks hauling dangerous uranium waste from Tennessee for burial in a landfill at the Nevada National Security Site will start rolling early next year despite objections from Gov. Brian Sandoval, who is powerless to stop them, federal officials said Tuesday.

Department of Energy officials insisted the strategy will be safe despite questions about the suitability of disposing potent, highly radioactive nuclear material in trenches deeper than 40 feet in the southeast part of the former Nevada Test Site.

Kevin Knobloch, chief of staff to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, said Nevada cannot veto the disposal plan at the government’s self-regulated site, 65 miles north of Las Vegas.

That leaves the state — if it chooses — with the possible threat of legal action or intervention by Nevada’s congressional delegation led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., as remedies for DOE’s plan.

In the face of opposition from Sandoval, Knoblach said the DOE has pledged to “work very closely with state and local authorities to make sure we are listening to concerns, answering questions, sharing information.”

 The DOE planned to start shipments last spring but put the campaign on hold when it became publicized and caused Nevada officials to declare a new uneasiness over them. Among other things, the waste is an unusual form that raised questions whether it fits the criteria to be buried at the security site alongside other contaminated debris from government cleanups.

For a state that fought tooth and nail against the proposed high-level nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, the prospect for another type of highly radioactive waste to be buried in the state also was unsettling to environmental activists and some leaders.

If Nevada failed to put a foot down about the uranium material, or at least try, what other forms of nuclear waste might the government look to ship to the Silver State?

Sandoval and Moniz this summer assigned aides to meet on uranium waste and other matters that have created scratches in the long relationship between Nevada and the federal government over operations of the national security site.

The DOE’s plan calls for moving 403 canisters of nuclear-power fuel remnants to the Nevada site from Tennessee’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The once-liquid waste from a 1960s reprocessing plant in upstate New York was solidified and baked inside steel canisters at the Oak Ridge lab, where it has been stored in a historic Manhattan Project building since the mid-1980s.

The canisters containing a ceramic mixture of three uranium isotopes — U-233, U-235 and U-232 — will be transported to Nevada National Security Site as part of an environmental cleanup of the Tennessee site. DOE officials say they prefer to begin the shipments early next year.

Mark Whitney, environmental cleanup manager at Oak Ridge, said between 50 and 100 shipments would be made over a period of 18 months to three years.

In Tuesday’s conference call with reporters, Whitney acknowledged that the majority of the waste material, 76 percent, is uranium-235, the same atom-splitting isotope that has been used in some nuclear bombs that were tested during the Cold War at the Nevada Test Site.

He said 10 percent of the waste consists of another atom-splitting isotope, uranium-233, though the cocktail of uranium waste is commonly referred to as U-233. Uranium-233 is also a nuclear bomb material and will be around at least 159,200 years before half of its radioactive punch decays to safer levels.

Despite the atomic bomb materials that DOE officials say are benign because neutron-absorbing ingredients have been mixed to reduce the risk of an accidental nuclear reaction, Nevada officials have said a greater concern is an impurity that in the hands of terrorists could be turned into a “dirty bomb.”

The impurity is the other isotope, uranium-232. Though it has a much shorter half-life, roughly 70 years, waste containing it requires heavy shielding and must be handled using remote-controlled cranes.

And as it decays, U-232 creates a new menace: thallium-208. That offspring emits short-lived but intense, deadly gamma rays that are, in a nutshell, “radiotoxic” — or biologically harmful to the human environment. Anyone tampering with the uranium-tainted waste in the canisters to extract material for a dirty bomb would risk death from gamma ray exposure.

Because of the high percentage of atom-splitting bomb ingredients, the material should not be permanently buried as low-level waste in a landfill because it doesn’t meet Nuclear Regulatory Commission low-level radioactive waste guidelines, said Michael Voegele, former Yucca Mountain Project chief scientist who works as a consultant to Nye County.

Some critics have noted the DOE quietly changed its waste-acceptance criteria in May so that the Oak Ridge canisters could be disposed of as low-level waste that’s five times more radioactive than previously allowed.
