Japanese Radiation Coming Down In Rainfall In North America
(Measured In Video linked above)


[THANKS to GJ Gianninoto for this article]


In this video, linked above and below, 'Connecting Dots' shows his geiger counter states 'at 1.2 mSv exit the area'; and the readings of the rain falling on Lake Louise, this July, is 1.68 mSv per hour, [mSv is a thousandths of a sievert], and that anything above 0.4 you are to look for the source of the radiation but at 1.2 do not look for the source. Instead, exit the area immediately.

for Units of Measurement (Radiation)

This is in Alberta Canada at the peak of the continental divide. And this shows that the levels are extremely dangerous. In the video, motorcyclists are zooming by totally wet from this rain. He is using his Geiger counter in a baggie held against a wet paper towel he wet from his car windshield after driving east from Lake Louise toward Calgary on the Trans-Canadian Highway. He gets excitedly worried, and says he is going to rush to his room to take a shower after seeing how high the levels must be in his hair from standing in the rain.

The meter he is using measures 'dose per hour'. So in ten hours the dose is 10 times, in one hundred hours, 100 times, etc. So, if you live where he is testing, within 24 days, at the same rate, you would have your bone marrow, lymph nodes and spleen damaged. Within 72 days, recovery would be possible, not assured. [see chart below]. These are permanent changes.

Realize that the US federal government multiplied the maximum allowable radiation from the previous level by a factor of 100,000  after Fukushima.
That means what they previously said was "dangerous" now requires 100,000 times more radiation before they say it is dangerous. Why? because there is nothing they can do to stop the radiation from coming from Japan and reaching you. Instead, they are calling it safe even though it is not safe.

Radiation is cumulative. It does not go away. Every exposure adds to every other exposure you have ever had.

Some dairy products in Europe are now banned because of radiation from Japan that came from west to east. That means if they got it in Europe, it was because it passed over the USA. So who is measuring the radiation in your food in the grocery store? NO ONE.

The sievert (symbol: Sv) is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of dose equivalent radiation. 
It attempts to quantitatively evaluate the biological effects of ionizing radiation as opposed to the physical aspects, which are characterized by the absorbed dose, measured in gray on the meter. A micro seivert, mSv, is a thousandth of a seivert.

It is named after Rolf Sievert, a Swedish medical physicist renowned for work on radiation dosage measurement and research into the
biological effects of radiation.

Whereas a given dose of radiation may or may not, in any amount, affect a rock or a metal beam, in any noticeable way, and so is labeled a 'gray' or Gy,
the same amount of radiation is called a Sv in order to distinguish doses that damage living tissue. Both are defined as the amount of energy per unit of mass, or, for you, in common personal terms, 'weight'.

Radiation is actual energy that can be measured.
It's effects are that more is more dangerous. If you are a housefly, a small amount and poof! you are done. The same amount of radiation energy might not be noticeable to an elephant. It also depends on which part of your body gets the exposure. A heavy particle like uranium or plutonium may never leave your body.

Radiation is counted as cumulative. In other words, a certain total amount will kill you. In reality, if you are exposed to X amount over a lifetime, you may not notice it for a variety of reasons; whereas if you are exposed to X amount in one hour, it may very well kill you on the spot.

Thus, the idea of '
rate of dose' is introduced. Modern Geiger counters measure the amount and the rate at which it is being received. Charts such as below, list effects of amounts and time, in the case of this chart, per day.

The unit gray measures the absorbed dose of radiation (D), absorbed by any material.
The unit sievert measures the equivalent dose of radiation (H), supposed to have a damaging effect equivalent to the same dose of gamma rays.

Both the gray, with symbol Gy and the sievert, with symbol Sv are SI derived units, defined as a unit of energy (joule) per unit of mass (kilogram):

1 Gy = 1 Sv = 1 J / kg

[all equal to each other but Sv is the term used to describe effects on animals and humans]

But all particles are not equal. For example Cesium 137 has a short half life in months, and Plutonium has a half life in hundreds of thousands of years. Baby teeth surveys for radiation in the U.S. show the highest levels are for Strontium 90 found in, of all places, Washington, D.C.  So measuring the amount of radiation and the rate at which it is arriving is one thing. The other thing is how long is it going to stay around depending on what particle landed on you or is inhaled or swallowed.

Malfunctioning nuclear reactors spew all the types of particles. Make no mistake, Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl. Now you see why even though Germany re-certified all their nuclear reactors recently, they now have plans to shut them all down. We have no plans to do so in the U.S.

See the attached screen snip, then watch the video.

I included this to show the levels and the damage:

Symptom benchmarks [Wikipedia]

Symptoms of acute radiation poisoning (dose received within one day):

0 0.25 Sv (0 250 mSv): : None


0.25 1 Sv (250 1000 0 mSv): Some people feel nausea and loss of appetite; bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen damaged. 


1 3 Sv (1000 3000 0 mSv):  Mild to severe nausea, loss of appetite, infection; more severe bone marrow, lymph node, spleen damage; recovery probable, not assured. 


3 6 Sv (3000 6000 0 mSv):  Severe nausea, loss of appetite; hemorrhaging, infection, diarrhea, peeling of skin, sterility; death if untreated.


6 10 Sv (6000 10000 0 mSv):  Above symptoms plus central nervous system impairment; death expected. 


 Above 10 Sv (10000 mSv):  Incapacitation and death.

  • The nuclear radiation goes round and round the globe. West Coast or East Coast, Europe or on it's way back to Japan - around the world how many times via the jet stream? Some 120 days now & counting. One thing is for sure, when it rains, this is when it pours down the radiation. It is accumulating every day in the atmosphere - with Japanese officials saying this will continue for years. Any doubts to whether this is true - just watch this video. Forward it to friends & loved ones. cosmiccowboy92021
  • So true! connectingdots1
  • dude, your car is toxic now. that poor guy on the motorcycle is getting fried!!! rocky98498
  • Doesn't matter, I've already tried once talking to two motorcyclist and these guys won't hear it..at all, after all if they did believe it, then they would have to park the bikes,,,this is a tough issue with some. connectingdots1

  • Can I suggest you check the levels from the air filter of your car ? Apparently, the particles accumulate in the fabric. DavidAKZ
  • Having a hard time finding the donate section? Will keep looking since I've been following your videos since the March 11th disaster, hey everybody....throw Connectingdots a couple bucks for gas $. THIS IS TRUE JOURNALISM. Thank you. jiujitsulifestyle
  • Youtube stats are fuc*** lately. Shit's hitting the fan. sketch2k 
  • Once this stuff gets into our lakes, drinking supply, etc. ... we're hooped anyway. Radioactive particles don't just get cleansed through a HEPA filter. If you ever want kids, go freeze some sperm and eggs now inside a radioactive proof box. sketch2k
  • About the same as getting an X-Ray in the arm every 2 hours... doesn't sound like much but that's actually quite a bit of exposure - and I agree - considerably dangerous exposure levels. Thanks for posting this. samuelpraisesyah 
  • smoke cannabis, heavily, and save yourself ! joewalker77 
  • Thanks for the documentation of your RAD reading. Question is now: What can we do about it, and why have the Nations of the world NOT closed down all Nuclear Power plants and gone to alternative energy? williamwagener
  •  Please note I didn't write safe levels, but admittedafe levels. These are from the French edition of CIPR_103, page 104, chapter 5.2 "Limites de doses" I've been looking for an English available one but failed (the one I've found yet is not for free ... sorry)... DavidAKZ
  • Imho, things i read recently about radiations and contamination lead me to doubt any "safe level" exists at all... 05hubert05 
  • Jct: Youtube "Big Lie of Low Level Radiation" to know why I ran for Prime Minister of Canada to reprogram the Bank of Canada's computer to fund the mass-production of marijuana to fight all the cancers we're going to get from the nuclear catastrophe. The danger is squared, not linear. I"m the only candidate warning Canadians to Take Cover! kingofthepaupers
  • It is interesting that my screen shows that this video has been viewed 439 times, yet there are 70 comments and 106 "likes". With most videos there isn't nearly so much involvement, leading me to suspect that youtube is somehow understating the number of times this video has been viewed. But good work, CD. I wish we had better news, though.
