Nuclear Radiation

Getting out of Dodge before the plume hits

 By Judi McLeod  Thursday, March 17, 2011

imageThere it is as the lead story on the Drudge Report this morning: UN: `Plume’ To Hit US Friday.

The scare tactics employed by the world’s largest bureaucracy, the scandal-ridden United Nations, make Frankenstein look like a choir boy.

“A United Nations forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume coming from crippled Japanese reactors shows it churning across the Pacific, (is there any other way to fly?) and touching the Aleutian islands on Thursday before hitting Southern California late Friday.” (Drudge, via New York times, March 16, 2011).

First we get to read about the deadly “plume” coming this way.

But in paragraph two that “Health and nuclear experts emphasize that radiation in the plume will be diluted as it travels and, at worst, would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States (italics CFP’s), even if hints of it are ultimately detectable.”

The same story likens the coming Japan plume to the one event still capable of striking fear in the heart of the masses: Chernobyl.  “Radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 spread around the globe and reached the West Coast of the United States in 10 days, its levels measurable but minuscule.”

If the UN’s “forecast” on the plume is anything like their much vaunted IPCC computer models for predicting climate change, the plume, miraculously still “churning”  should hit Kenya sometime next month, even though by then it is bound to be a “plumette”.

The UN has been outstanding in helping in the aftermath of the double deadly earthquake and tsunami in Japan.  They sent seven officials over to supervise everybody else’s work!  And we’ll know that they’re serious when they reroute their condom-packed cruise ship from Haiti.

Rather than cowering somewhere in Southern California, home to the mansions of movie stars and farmers living in their government-imposed draught, you can head out for the closest thing to Creature Comfort on Mother Earth: UN headquarters.

Rather than bobbing and weaving away from the “plume” and risking the giggles of saner souls not afraid of anything—including socialism-crazed Obama—you can be living the life of Riley in Turtle Bay.

To give you an idea of the scope of that bureaucratic comfort, the UN is currently undergoing a $1.9-billion renovation.  (You won’t have to pay your parking tickets there either).

Think of your safety living at the UN: The plume projection comes at you directly from the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), accurately New York Times’ described as “an arm of the United Nations in Vienna.”

Never New York Times described is that the CTBTO is where $100,000 tax free officials never show up at work, only gracing their office once in awhile to check out their emails.  (Canada Free Press).

And you can’t count on their warning sensors either.  While urgent messages were being sent their way about the Indian ocean earthquake and tsunami during the Christmas holidays of 2004, they were away from their computers not to return until January (Canada Free Press Jan. 4, 2005).

Meanwhile, the best homeless shelter available for the plume wary is in New York, and it may be high time time for the plebes to invade the dolce vita of the eternally wasteful United Nations.
