The Radiation Network said it must have been a defective Geiger counter. Why else would it spike? “There is no Fukushima radiation in America”… Uh-huh. What is the purpose of their site? Are they so incompetent that whenever the site is doing what it is supposed to, it must be broken? Why don’t they say anything when the counts go to zero?
Radiation has recently spiked in Hokkaido, Tokyo and Kanagawa, and Kagawa. Obviously, there has been a criticality. This is one of those long, thin, snaky plumes that are emitted from destroyed nuclear power plants. The plumes are so thin that they only show up in a local area, and 50 miles away there may be no increased radiation. That is why other stations in the area did not detect it. This same process occurred in Chernobyl, and that is why deposition of radioactive particles in highly variable and irregular.
It looks like this one is hugging the US-Canadian border and will move through northern New England. But it’s hard to say for sure.
