Radiation cloud “not harmful”… Brilliant, but WHERE did it come from?

A RADIOACTIVE cloud lingering off the Sunshine Coast on Sunday was not dangerous, according to the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.

Caloundra IT manager Peter Daley picked up the cloud’s radioactivity on his Geiger counter, a device that measures ionizing radiation in the atmosphere.

The reading was taken at 6.30pm and measured 0.80 microsieverts, which is eight times over the average level of radiation in the atmosphere.

Mr Daley said he was concerned the cloud could have formed from a radioactive fall out from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.

“This may be just a one off but even still, any exposure to an increase in radiation is not good,” Mr Daley said.

He first noticed the hike when his Geiger counter began erratically beeping.

He then watched the rise in radiation fluctuate for three hours, peaking for 20 minutes at 0.80.

“I was shocked to hear the Geiger alarm going off, I have been recording radiation in the atmosphere for four years and the highest it has ever gone was 0.20 microsieverts.”

Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency senior environmental scientist Marcus Grezechnik said the reading was unusual but not concerning for the Coast.

“It is very unlikely to be caused from Fukushima, but more likely to be caused by a weather change or dust,” Dr Grezechnik said.

“It is not seen as a big increase although it is higher than average. To put everyone’s mind at ease, even if you were receiving that dose every hour for a full year you would have less dose than one CAT Scan.”

He said radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster had only been recorded in Australia once since the incident occurred in March 11.

“All reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi site were now in cold shutdown, significantly reducing the likelihood of uncontrolled releases to the environment and associated health impacts,” he said

Ok then. Maybe it is from Fukushima, maybe it isn’t.  As always, the professionals have spoken and the “explanation” is as empty as a beer barrel at a football final.

Our minds are definitely NOT at ease, Dr Grezechnik.

Where did this high dose of radiation come from? Did it just manifest in our atmosphere, out of the blue?

Could it have had something to do with the weird and wonderful—I shudder to use the word—HAARP network radar anomalies we have been catching over the past few weeks?
A few too many microwaves, perhaps?

A few upper atmospheric nuclear explosion experiments we don’t need to hear about? I think that particular experimental project is high on the agenda at the moment, is it not? More dead creatures in our waters pretty soon?

Ahhh, the power of all this wonderful technology…

About beyond the weatherzone

Australia is in the grip of some very strange weather patterns. Massive cyclones, historic flooding, snow and hail out of season, and increasing violent stormcells have become the norm. Could this be due to experimentation? Australia is involved with HAARP, the VFL group, and we have the world's largest ionospheric heater at Exmouth. Australia is the ideal experimentation ground, and we don't even know! Is it possible - are we being conned? Let the radar do the talking. ---------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------- Fair Use Notice: This site contains copyrighted material the use of which has not always been specifically authorised by the copyright owner.
