This Spring’s Dangerous Air, Water & Japan’s Radiation, Part 2

 Wendy Weathersbee: Perhaps we didn’t emphasize that scientists blame this potentially poisonous Spring air on Global Warming.  Ally tells us what else may be in the air we breathe, and in the water we drink, all officially labeled harmless.

 Ally I. Feermeno:  Scientists are astounded at the radiation that has drifted over from Japan, even moving eastward as far as Massachusetts.  It has been found in the air and water in 13 states and in three U. S. territories.

 Dr. Ad Versery:  Yes Ally.  Mark Clayton of the Christian Science Monitor writes:  “Higher than usual levels of radiation were detected by 12 monitoring stations in Alaska, Alabama, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands, and Washington State over the past week and sent to Environmental Protection Agency scientists for detailed laboratory analysis.”

 Sarah Newsworthy:  He adds that unusual, yet apparently very low “trace amounts” of radiation, were also reported in Massachusetts rain water, and by state officials and nuclear power plant radiation sensors in Colorado, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, and Pennsylvania.”

 Wendy Weathersbee:  And what’s worse, for those who use rainwater, because they think it is less polluted, in fact radiation levels from Japan’s damaged plant are higher in clouds and in rainwater.
 
 Ally I. Feermeno:  Yes, but even so, authorities still insist rainwater is safe.  Officially––although “low levels of radioactive iodine believed to be from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant have been detected”––Reuters quotes spokesman Drew Elliott of Progress Energy, the utility serving Florida and the Carolinas: “There is no current threat to public safety.”  Officials also say radiation levels are “below those that could harm livestock or pets, which could consume rainwater.”

 According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, “One key radioactive particle being detected is iodine 131, a product of nuclear fission. Trace amounts of I-131 were trapped in clouds, and recent rains deposited I-131 in collection containers.”  Thus, because cows drink rainwater, milk in Massachusetts is now being tested for radiation poisoning.

 Wendy Weathersbee: Yet, the Centers for Disease Control insists:  “The levels being seen now are 25 times below the level that would be of concern for use as a sole source of water over a short period of time, even for infants, pregnant women or breast-feeding women, who are the most sensitive to radiation.”

 Dr. Ad Versery:  We will discuss researchers who don’t agree with these assurances.  When it comes to nuclear exposure, we must understand that humanity is in the end of time.  Thus, Christian messages require believers to have Noah’s type of faith:  “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house . . (Hebrews 11:7).
