Note...and note carefully - a CPM (Counts Per Minute) reading of 100 is a mandatory HAZMAT Quarantine EMERGENCY in the State of California. Get that? The shocking readings shown in the photos below are what the passengers were breathing and fully-exposed to during the flights from Chile to Atlanta and then across the US to Portland, Oregon.
Is it something in the atmosphere?
The Fukushima accident may or may not be the source of the radiation readings taken on this flight. But are such radiation levels normal on airliner flights? I would say probably not as the readings fluctuated quite a bit depending on geographical location and actually increased substantially on decent into Atlanta.
It would have made some sense if the readings were highest, the higher they flew, but that's not what happened. And the question also arises why the radiation readings were so different while cruising over South America Vs. over the USA? There should not have been much of a difference, if nothing in the atmosphere was causing this.
What do you all think about this?
