Following on with the post last night on the Banana Equivalent Dose (BED), today I am posting a link from a good friend from college. She works with air quality and regulation. She forwarded the following link to a site that does realtime monitoring of radiation over the United States.
Welcome message from the site:
“Welcome to RadiationNetwork.com, home of the National Radiation Map, depicting environmental radiation levels across the USA, updated in real time every minute. This is the first web site where the average citizen (or anyone in the world) can see what radiation levels are anywhere in the USA at any time”
Now if you’re worried about reports on one of the major news networks about the radiation cloud heading for the west coast you can check it yourself, with minute by minute updates. Look to the bottom of the map for a key for reading the markers.
By utilizing these types of resources on the Internet, you can get the facts and not fall victim to the hype that some media outlets are broadcasting about this crisis. Don’t be a victim, and don’t fall for any of the many scams that are cropping up across the Internet.
With electricity possibly being restored to the plant today, let’s keep up hope that this crisis can still be averted with the reactors, and that the efforts of all those workers sacrificing their personal health, and possibly their lives, to get this situation under control are not doing this for nothing.
