Does Anybody In Humboldt County Have A Geiger Counter Other Than PG&E?

The only official radiation experts in Humboldt Co. seem to be the people at the PG&E Humboldt Bay Power Plant.  I am just asking if anyone out there has a Geiger Counter, knows how to read it, knows the normal background radiation here and would like to share their information. This could possibly be on the radio and or this blog.

  1. Check the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District's website: www.ncuaqmd.org. There is a link to real-time monitoring data from Eureka.

  2. I know a couple of people who have been taking readings. I just wrote to them and asked them to contact you. From what I understand, all their readings so far show only typical background levels here, at least as of Saturday.

  3. What bothers me is that in every report of radiation levels, there is a stickler of a qualifying word or phrase.

    Case in point, NCUAQMD states, "The monitoring data show that there is no increased risk of harmful levels of radiation exposure to the citizens of Humboldt, Del Norte or Trinity Counties."

    The qualifier there is the word "harmful." What is harmful is very much up to interpretation, with government interpretations being quite different from NGO interpretations.

  4. The County should have a few of them. Check with the County Haz-Mat and also the Health Department.

  6. Thanks Mark. That was what I was looking for. I think I'll be seeing you soon Dave so we'll talk then.

    Rose, I don't really want to buy one. I did look into that and the most all around usefull model was about 3-hundred bucks and shipped between 5 to 7 weeks.

  9. Hey all Humboldt county folks :) I had a weird experience right around fallout Friday. I was driving in Arcata and I had the window open, I got some dust in my eye and my eyes started twitching. That night I closed my eyes and saw a micro hair-like particle with a Green glow around it. Now I've seen little white ones before, But this was a green glow like a glow stick (not nearly as bright). I think it was a very small very diffuse nuclear particle. It must have been right on my cornea for me to see it. I washed my eyes out and afterwards I had a diffuse pain in my eye like a bruise (still there actually). I did go to the eye doctor who found nothing but said if it was that small he wouldn't be able to find it anyway. Both my wife and I feel something in our throats ie thyroid. Anyone else feel like they might feel thyroid or other symptoms? Oh yeah we both also have this blurry vision thing happening like sitting in front of a computer too long (which we have been, but it still seems weird). If you have looked at the weather pattern since the incident, you know that the wind has been directed straight here from japan for pretty much the whole time (and Washington, Oregon). Also, all the reports say in the first couple of lines "there is no danger" that seems like B.S. to me. They never site their sources and if they do its EPA, FDA, Does anyone trust either of those groups? Not me. Don't let the "normalcy syndrome" lull you into believing everything is just fine. It's not, we will be looking at higher cancer rates and it makes me sad and angry. Protect yourself the best you can with knowledge, nutrition, detoxification, preventing dust from accumulating in your living spaces. Don't be a sheep, this is your life and if your a parent; it's your kids too. I am no novice when it comes to nuclear issues either, I have an environmental Science degree and did a well researched report on MRS and the yucca Mnt issues. I know how deadly this stuff is. I am not one for living in fear but without some fear you will just sit there and let the world mow you down. Btw check out the NOVA show about Chernobyl the sarcophagus one on youtube. That will get you thinking for sure.
