EPA Getting Rid Of Beta Detectors (Which Monitor Nuclear Accident Fallout) And Dismantling Mobile Environmental Radiation Laboratory (MERLs) Detect Radiation In Air, Beaches, Animals, Food; Why?

What happens in case of a nuclear accident or spill? Is the EPA ever involved? Have you ever heard of the EPA responding to a nuclear emergency? No? Why not? How is a nuclear radiation 'spill' any different than an oil spill, a hazardous waste spill or any other public health hazard? Why is the EPA getting rid of all of it's beta radiation monitors and mobile Environmental Radiation Labs?

WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO HIDE SKY HIGH RADIATION LEVELS? GET RID OF THE RADIATION DETECTORS! 


The EPA Radiation reports can be manipulated in a number of ways by cheating, psychopathic politicians who would rather lie to their constituents than tell them the sometimes bitter truth about the radiation in their city. The local, state and federal elected officials have developed both legal and “good-ole boys” ways to hide the true radiation count from the unsuspecting public. By far the easiest lie to pull off is to omit the higher of the two counts. Now days that is almost always the Beta CPM. Some politicians always man-up (some women, too) and face the music; preferring that the residents know now rather than not know. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is such a city.

What other reason could there be for getting rid of beta radiation detectors on the EPA radiation detection network? 

EPA IS GETTING RID OF BETA RADIATION DETECTORS; THEIR MAIN PURPOSE IS TO DETECT RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT FROM NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS OR ATOM BOMBS

In short: Nuclear fallout, from a meltdown accident or bomb detonation, emits mainly BETA radiation. This makes it far more dangerous when inhaled or ingested, where it can cause localized mutations in cells and various other effects that can express themselves, often years even decades later, as leukemia, cancers, heart diseases, immune system disruptions, etc. By cutting Beta radiation monitors on the one hand, and redacting the remaining data on the other, we the people are left in the dark on the current fallout realities.


EPA INVESTIGATES SANTA SUSANA NUCLEAR PLANT MELT DOWN SITE, BUT ONLY AFTER CONGRESS AUTHORIZES IT, WHY NOT BEFORE THEN? 

The EPA did get involved in a nuclear plant melt down at Santa Susana, but only long after they happened. Why didn't they get involved before that, when the actual melt downs happened? Why didn't they warn the public back when multiple melt downs were happening?

"Mary Aycock, Remedial Project Manager for US EPA Region 9, presents about the results of the 2012 radiological survey of Area IV and the Northern Buffer Zone of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory."

MOBILE NUCLEAR LABS ARE PART OF WHAT EPA HAD AS AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE TOOL, BUT NOW THEY ARE GETTING RID OF THEM; WHY? 

If a hot spot is reported by a civilian scientist using a regular Geiger Counter, these mobile trailers and labs would be the FIRST and BEST responder, to quickly assess whether there is an emergency situation requiring cordoning off or evacuation of an area. But the EPA seems to be getting rid of these labs and mobile trailers.

"Mobile sample preparation trailers and mobile laboratories are used by EPA to determine whether low-level contamination exists in samples taken from the environment around a site. RERT has two Mobile Environmental Radiation Laboratories (MERLs), which can arrive at any site in the United States within two to four days.


In other words, they could have used these mobile radiation detection labs to measure the worst of the plumes coming over from Fukushima, despite their normal RADNET monitors being broken under the worst of the plumes, at the worst times. The fact is, they did not measure the worst of the radiation plume from Fukushima, either with the regular monitoring network, or with these mobile units. 

Why not? Who made that decision?


EPA’s scanner van is one of many pieces of specialized equipment that can be used to detect radiation. It can be driven around a large area to identify “hotspots” where radiological contamination or other threats may exist.


These vehicles contain the latest radiation survey and communications equipment and are maintained in a constant state of readiness for deployment at a moment's notice.

Tell EPA to keep mobile radiation monitoring lab for nuclear accidents in western U.S.

VIA NIRS: June 15, 2015

Dear friends,

We've got a busy week--and summer--coming up. Below is our first action for you to take: to reverse a decision by EPA to shut down one of its only two mobile radiation monitoring labs in the country. It's a stupid decision that would save very little money but would leave the entire western U.S. unnecessarily vulnerable to nuclear accidents of all kinds. Let's tell the EPA to reverse that decision now--before it's implemented.

And watch your e-mail tomorrow: we'll be announcing a major new international campaign on nuclear power and climate. You'll want to be part of it. Later in the week watch for a new action on radiation issues.

The U.S. EPA has made a dangerous decision to eliminate its Mobile Environmental Radiation Laboratory based in Las Vegas, which is designed to respond quickly to a radiological release from a nuclear terrorist event, nuclear power plant accident, or transport incident. This would leave much of the U.S. without basic radiation information and unprotected in case of an intentional or accidental radiological release.

The van is one of only two in the country with high tech, state-of-the-art detection instruments that can quickly and completely assess the amounts and kinds of radioactivity released. When not in use for emergencies, it can be useful for quicker sampling results at contaminated cleanup sites. EPA could move and dismantle this valuable resource any day now unless we take action to stop it. 

For more information, watch this NBC story

Call EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy's office right now at 202-564-4700 and leave a message demanding that she reverse the decision.

And also send McCarthy an e-mail with the same demand. We've made it easy here. As always, feel free to edit the sample text to reflect your own concerns.

Thanks for all you do--and be sure to check your e-mail tomorrow for the announcement of the new international campaign on nukes and climate!
