The POTRBLOG team decided to investigate the differences between the Department of Energy's recent release of Fukushima Radioactive Fallout data and the Enviornmental Protection Agency's RADNET Radioactive Fallout data; what we discovered was startling.
The DOE data lists a fallout monitoring location in Western Iraq which had taken fallout readings on March 30th 2011; an "apple to apple" analyis was performed comparing the EPA' Radnet data from March 11 2011 through March 30th. To make the "apple to apple" comparison the HIGHEST air filter fallout readings from each individual radionuclide in the USA (over the entire time period) was compared to each radionuclide measured in western Iraq on March 30 2011.
The only calculation/conversion the POTRBLOG team made was to convert the IRAQ measurements from micro-Curies per milli-Liter to pico-Curies per cubic-Meter; those calculations are marked in the charts below.
The result was that the IRAQ fallout measured by the DOE was as high as TEN THOUSAND Percent GREATER than the highest identical radionuclide measured in the USA by the EPA.
Obviously there has to be an error somewhere given that Iraq is a few days down wind from the USA. For all of our sakes lets pray that it is the POTRBLOG team that has made an error and not the US Government.
More updates/details and a video are to follow.
