Plutonium 239 Fallout Raining Down on North America; The Smoking Gun

I've decided to re-title the Saint Louis Neptunium 239 detection video in terms which more readily explain the connotations of the finding.


  1. Hello, Saw a video where you were measuring rainwater.

    Background radiation goes up with rain anyway, you can also get the same from a dust storm.

    Use your counter to monitor dust on the road from passing cars.

    23 mRh isn't really a concern, people have lived with much higher for years and years. Denver is easily as much on a cold day let alone in the summer.

    The device you are using is not really designed to measure radiation in materials. To measure materials you use a closed system and a much longer sample. While you'll see the numbers you show with your device, what you would see if you were walking around chernobyl is it would show 20-30mRh and a few feet away it would shoot to 200-300. If you are not getting big variations with that device you are probably not dealing with hotspots. Isotopes in clouds tend to remain fairly clumped together and fall in patches, when you see patches of hotspots, you'll more likely be looking at actual fallout.

  2. Do you believe that comment by Appliantologist?

    Actually, the reason I'm posting is to ask whether you still stand by the video posted Sep 20th about Neptunium-239 in your air?

    Would you please let me know?

  3. Majia's Blog, the situation remains MAXIMUM ALERT.

    The only thing I would now correct in that video is that the decay bump at 92 hours in the sampling is unlikely to be Radon 222 related. The only thing I would add to the video is that "Aaron Datesman" has attempted some further data cleaning and he has found an additional candidate, Yittrium; the decay product of Strontium.

    Based on the data and a larger system of systems analysis, my money is still on Neptunium 239. BUT, THE KEY TAKE AWAY IS THAT LONGER HALF LIFE FALLOUT IS COMING DOWN AND PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE APPROPRIATE RISK MITIGATION ACTIONS.
