Porter Ranch Mega Methane Disaster; AIPRI Reports That 80 Days Release Could Theoretically Contain 301.23 TBq And 2 Million Lethal Doses Of Radiation, Radon, Radium, Polonium; Animals Dying

FUKUSHIMA CLASS DISASTER IGNORED BY MASS MEDIA, BUT SPEWING LETHAL LEVELS OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS THAT CAN BE AND ARE BREATHED IN


"Fukushima Class Disaster" - L.A. Gas Leak Spewing Lethal Levels Of Breathable Nuclear Material
In a breaking development that has been completely ignored by mainstream news sources, the leaking natural gas well near Los Angeles, California is now reportedly spewing lethal levels of radioactive material, according to a report from Steve Quayle and a group with expertise in nuclear material. A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.

REPORT FROM CITIZEN LIVING NEARBY


demise January 14, 2016 I live just a few miles up wind of the methane leak. It's worse than reported because the lap-dog media are being told to contain the negative commentary from paid off bosses. It's spewing 100,000 pounds of methane an hour at tremendous pressure!!! Five cities are now directly affected. Globally it's a pinhole, but in the middle of dense population center it's a disaster.

Another rant about corruption. The A-team was not even called out to fix this problem until media coverage got too heavy. They used the cheaper B-team to save money at the expense of public health. Another example of corrupt greed taking precedence over all else.

The lawyers will sort it out later with paid off judges making the final call.

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENTIST REPORTS ON THE SIZE OF THIS DISASTER FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE


Listen to the scientist Stephen Conley, who has a regular job of measuring leaks from oil and gas facilities, and what he says about this one... He regularly flies over leaking gas and oil fields and measures the 'pollutants' coming off of them. (7 min. audio only)

GOM January 15, 2016  PORTER RANCH >> Nathan Phillips and Bob Ackley cruised this week by the leaking gas field in Porter Ranch, then dropped their gaze to a portable wind and methane monitor. It flashed 3.4 parts per billion on Wednesday – a methane level nearly twice the level of natural clean air. A few days earlier it had read 127 ppm, or 67 times above normal.

Gas explosion turns Chinese villages into “a death zone”
A toxic gas blowout at a drilling well in the municipality of Chongqing in south-west China on the night of December 23 has killed at least 233 people. More than 9,000 people have been treated for gas poisoning after inhaling hydrogen sulphide—also known as rotten egg gas. It causes skin burns, eye irritation and respiratory problems at low levels and is lethal at high concentrations. News agencies reported horrific scenes—people lying dead in villages and on roads, and the bodies of domestic animals littered around with white foam coming from their nostrils. Worst hit was the village of Xiaoyang—next to the gas well—where 90 percent of the residents were killed, including entire families. Many died in their sleep or were too old to escape.

The point is that a gas well blowout is not just a 'minor' issue. Just the hydrogen sulfide gas can and does kill animals, people and wildlife. 

Report: Wildlife “disappearing” around massive LA gas disaster — Residents: “It’s completely quiet”… birds, butterflies, rabbits, coyotes are missing… all fish in pond found dead — “All of this is gone… Makes me wonder how bad it really is” — Animal with “worst blood” ever seen by doctor 

MULTIPLE TYPES OF RADIATION ARE BEING RELEASED IN MASSIVE QUANTITIES AT PORTER RANCH, BUT NO ONE IS MEASURING OR TRACKING THEM; RADON, POLONIUM, RADIUM, AND LEAD

Experts: Multiple types of radioactive material constantly being emitted from LA gas blowout – “I’d be running like hell” – “We are getting higher & higher levels…it’s accumulating” – “Poisons spreading through entire San Fernando Valley” home to 2 million – “Thousands getting sick… major, major disaster” (AUDIO)
Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear’s nuclear waste watchdog (8:30 in) — “Another important thing that is very significant is that the radon is continually resupplied… Radon is going to beconstantly generated by the uranium contained in the methane… So really you’ve got a chronic constant supply of hazardous radon gas coming out of this breach in California.”

Cindy Folkers, Beyond Nuclear‘s expert on ionizing radiation (16:00 in) — “I’m absolutely astounded that they are not measuring for radon that I know of… I can’t believe that they’re not measuring for radon… [Radon] also decays to a number of what are called radon progeny which includes a number of short-lived radioactive substances, some of which are lead and polonium. Both of those can be very biologically damaging… There is question as to the kind of doses that they would be getting of radon, but it still is really very much a worry… I feel like — doing the research that I’ve done — that we are not getting the full story of what’s happening there.”
Terry Lodge, attorney (50:00 in) — “You have a massive release — probably — of radon going on and there may actually also be radium particulate… I’d be taking very rapid steps [if I lived in the area], I’d be running like hell.

Porter Ranch, California faces environmental disaster

HOW MUCH RADIATION AND WHAT TYPES ARE COMING OUT OF THE PORTER RANCH BLOWOUT? THEORETICAL POTENTIAL OF 300 TBQ, AND 2 MILLION LETHAL DOSES


AIPRI; About Porter Ranch: it is imperative understand how much natural radioactivity is contained in the methane gas release. In effect this release could be extremely dangerous if it contains high levels of natural radioactivity as indicated by Calytrix.biz, which mentions that radon 222 can have an activity of 200,000 Bq per m3 in natural gas.

Porter Ranch: the worst case scenario. The following is JUST A THEORETICAL estimation. We hope this “worst case scenario” could be falsified by facts.

In an equilibrium condition in each of the three sub-chains of natural radioactive elements U238, the U235 and Th 232 radionuclides that have 5 each, overall activity emitted by these three sub-channels NORM matches 11.1 times the activity of Rn222. An activity of 200,000 Bq of radon 222 per m3 of methane gas therefore involves a total activity of 2.21 MBq. 

In 80 days of gaseous emissions coming out at a breakneck pace of 1.7 million m3 per day (1115 tons per day at a rate of 46 tons per hour), 136 million m3 of natural gas dispersed in the air will theoretically contain 301.23 TBq with (3,01E14 Bq) and 8.14 KCI natural radioactivity for the potential equivalent of 2.41 million lethal doses inhaled taking account of ICRP dose factors for inhalation.

THEORETICAL RADIATION RELEASES PER HOUR AND PER DAY FROM BLOWOUT WELL PER AIPRI

Rn222 total activity per m3, release per hour and per day at Porter Ranch.

If 3,000 Bq m3 Rn222

Theoretical radiation per m3: 33.22 KBq (897.94 nCi)
Bq/hr: 2.35 GBq (63.60 mCi), 
Bq/day: 56.48 GBq (1.53 Ci).

If 10,000 Bq m3 Rn222

Theoretical radiation per m3: 110.75 KBq (2.99 μCi)
Bq/hr: 7.84 GBq (212.01 mCi)
Bq/day 188.27 GBq (5.09 Ci).

If 50,000 Bq m3 Rn222

Theoretical radiation per  m3: 553.73 KBq (14.97 μCi)
Bq/hr: 39.22 GBq (1.06 Ci)
Bq/day: 941.34 GBq (25.44 Ci)

If 90,000 Bq m3 Rn222

Theoretical radiation per  m3: 996.72 KBq (26.94 μCi)
Bq/hr: 70,60 GBq (1.91 Ci)
Bq/day: 1,69 TBq (45.80 Ci)

If 200,000 Bq m3 Rn222

Theoretical radiation per  m3: 2.21 MBq (59.86 μCi)
Bq/hr: 156.89 GBq (4.24 Ci)
Bq/day: 3.77 TBq (101.77 Ci)

WHAT IS RADIOACTIVE RADON, URANIUM AND POLONIUM DANGER?


ChasAha January 14, 2016  What is radon? (A layman's description)

"Radon IS a cancer-causing RADIOACTIVE gas. You cannot see, smell or taste radon…"

"Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that CHILDREN may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage."

[..radon carries approximately 1000 TIMES the RISK of DEATH as any other EPA carcinogen...]

Radon Facts:
"EPA action guideline level, radon carries approximately 1000 times the risk of death as any other EPA carcinogen. It is important to note that the action level is not a safe level, as there are no "safe" levels of radon gas."

"There are no immediate symptoms that will alert you to the presence of radon. It typically takes years of exposure before any problems surface."

DIRECTOR OF EDF OIL AND GAS PROGRAM INTERVIEWED



California’s Methane Gas Leak Environmental Catastrophe Explained

The Aliso Canyon gas leak, which is currently polluting Southern California, is examined with Timothy O’Connor, the Director of Environmental Defense Fund’s Oil and Gas Program in California, following the news that Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency Wednesday in Porter Ranch, where thousands of residents have been evacuated. O’Connor explains the health and environmental effects of methane emissions, the dangers of the gas leak relief plan, the Southern California Gas Company’s response to the leak, and how wells can be regulated to reduce methane leaks and subsequent climate damage. Finally, we take a look at EDF’s aerial infrared footage of the leak, in this uncensored Antidote interview hosted by Michael Parker. 

GUEST BIO:
Timothy O’Connor is the Director of EDF's Oil and Gas Program in California, working remotely from Los Angeles. Since joining EDF in 2007, Tim has been actively involved in all aspects of EDF's climate and energy work in the state legislature, state and federal courts, and at the state Public Utilities Commission and Energy Commission on issues related to oil and gas, climate change and clean energy. Focusing on the implementation of AB 32, California's landmark global warming law, alongside implementation of enacted methane legislation be helped author, Tim utilizes years of cross-cutting experiences in the government, non-profit and the private sectors to advocate for solutions to reduce pollution and support innovative solutions related to heavy industry and power plants, transportation fuels and vehicles, and compliance instruments in cap-and-trade programs.

HOW WAS A GAS WELL DISASTER LIKE THIS SHUT DOWN IN RUSSIA? 



https://youtu.be/-3EYcJ0gK-I

A mini nuclear weapon was used to extinguish a gas well disaster in Soviet Russia many years ago. If all other methods fail and this disaster gets worse, it may be the only thing left. Of course, there is the potential that it causes an even bigger disaster, by igniting the whole underground methane cavern full of gas.

SUMMARY


Just like radiation, methane and VOC's are invisible. Radioactive hot particles, plus toxic chemicals can be inhaled and/or ingested, where they can then lodge in the body. After being absorbed into the body due to their small micron size, they become part of the body tissues and can easily initiate things like Big C, which then takes many years to actually show up. Few people will think back and remember this event, if and when they are diagnosed with lung cancer 5, 10, or even 20 years from now. This is a huge public health disaster, the equivalent of the BP oil spill disaster, but not many people realize it, because all of the toxins are invisible and undetectable unless one has a special scientific detector.
