The typical american receives 6Msv per year??
How come? Here in the UK the maxium background (pre fuku was 2), and that's in Cornwall where they have a lot of granite.

Not all granite contains radioactive material but up at our cottage in Northern Ontario the big granite boulder had lots of hot spots. You can see them by looking at the quarta  If the quartz is dark smokey brown, there is radioactive particles in the rock. The property next to ours was an old Uranium addit, not enough to be viable. Lots of dark orange calcite though, which is a sign.

But on close inspection of granite if you see small brown rusty looking nodules that have a ray of cracks  those are 'hot' particles. Don't have a picture but I do have some samples with hot zircons in them

On Radiation exposure people living in Denver get natural radiation doses that are very high... Total average of about 12.4 m/sv/year

I wonder hat kind of buzz people would get off off radioactive pot.
The plants will do some good, better than grass (no pun) It is a mirical plant held back by the liquer PTB. Go for it,

Well back in the days of the pot smoking Hippies... they liked a lot of glowing psychedelic pictures lit up with UV radiation...

... so with radioactive pot they wouldn't need the light... they would just glow :D

7.3 magnitude earthquake hits Japan near Fukushima

A 7.3-magnitude earthquake shook Japan early Saturday, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The quake was off the Fukushima region of Japan, 231 miles east off the island of Honshu.

It was 6.2 miles deep, officials said, hit at 3:10 a.m. Saturday local time and was felt 300 miles away in Tokyo.

The Japan Meteorological Agency reported a one-foot tsunami was observed after it issued a yellow-colored warning Saturday morning, meaning a small tsunami could reach the coast at Fukushima, site of Japan's 2011 nuclear power plant disaster.

There were no immediate reports of damage from the temblor, which Japanese authorities classified as ranging from magnitude 6.8 to 7.1. No irregularities were reported at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. A spokesman at Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), which operates the plant, told Reuters some workers had been told to evacuate to higher ground.

A yellow warning is issued when a tsunami is not expected to exceed three feet, significantly smaller than the tsunami that hit the energy plant in March 2011.

Yellow tsunami advisories are the lowest of three categories of alert issued by the Japan Meteorological Agency, below red-colored tsunami warnings and purple-colored major tsunami warnings.

No warning for the rest of the Pacific was posted by the U.S. Tsunami Warning Center after the quake.

Japan's nuclear reactors are still suffering from the 9.0-magnitude quake that struck in 2011: Only two of 50 across the country are back online since the quake and its resulting tsunami. The Dai-ichi nuclear power plant was rocked by huge radiation leaks.

About 19,000 people were killed in the 2011 disaster.

NBC's Arata Yamamoto contributed to this report.

Francisco Brings More Than a Foot of Rain to Japan

By Courtney Spamer, Meteorologist
October 25, 2013; 4:09

 Francisco has made a sharp turn toward the northeast which will keep the center of the storm off the coast of Japan. However, it will still bring heavy rain and a risk of flooding to part of the nation.

Although the tropical storm has been following a track similar to deadly Typhoon Wipha from last week, Francisco will pass farther offshore and produce only a limited wind threat for eastern Japan.

The greatest threat from Francisco will be the heavy rainfall that will continue into Saturday before ending as Francisco is pulled farther northeast into the open Pacific Ocean.

" . . . a nuclear physicist stated to msnbc international, on condition of anonymity, that the situation at Fukushima can best be described as an open air nuclear power plant in meltdown mode, with the cooling water being pumped directly into the ocean."

This statement was made two years ago. Just imagine the amount of radioactivity released since then. It's a wonder the entire planet isn't bald and puking.

Massive Earthquake Rocks Japan's Fukushima Prefecture..
Tsunami Advisory Issued.. Nuclear Plant Evacuated.. No Reports Of Damage


TOKYO -- TOKYO (AP) — An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early Saturday morning off Japan's east coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Japan's emergency agencies declared a tsunami warning for the region that includes the crippled Fukushima nuclear site.

Japan's Meteorological Agency issued a 1-meter (3-foot) tsunami warning for a long stretch of Japan's northeastern coast. It put the magnitude of the quake at 7.1. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not post warnings for the rest of the Pacific.

There were no immediate reports of damage on land. Japanese television images of harbors showed calm waters.

The quake hit at 2:10 a.m. Saturday Tokyo time (1710 GMT) about 290 kilometers (170 miles) off Fukushima. Japanese broadcaster NHK reported that Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the Fukushima plant, ordered workers near the coast to move to higher ground. Japanese news service Kyodo said there were no signs of trouble at the plant.

The tremor was felt in Tokyo, some 300 miles (480 kilometers) away.

All but two of Japan's 50 reactors have been offline since the March 2011 magnitude-9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami triggered multiple meltdowns and massive radiation leaks at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, about 250 kilometers (160 miles) northeast of Tokyo. About 19,000 people were killed.
