      Rocket Conversion Help?

    Hi DJ,

    We are interested in converting a beautiful old-style wood burning cookstove so that it uses a rocket instead of a smokey traditonal fire.  Can you share how you converted your cooker with us?

    Thank you!

      One Second After

    For anyone wanting to consider the possible effects of an emp on modern society, check out the book “One Second After”.  It’s a novel, but it is a good look at what could happen.

      IP Address for CM Site

    In case the internet ever is attacked, it is my understanding that websites may still be accessed if one knows the IP address.  Is the IP address for this site http://174.120.12.180?   Perhaps it would be good for all members/users to have this address written down in a safe place in case it is needed.  Seems like this site could be an important source of information.

      How are we to know about fallout?

    Is there any way to know if we are getting any radioation or fallout effects in our air, rain and communities? 

    It sounds like radiation detectors are complicated and expensive.  Local agencies, universities, etc., don’t seem to be reliably monitoring and reporting.  The EPA has raised the acceptable levels of exposure.  Reports keep coming out about low or not-so-low levels of contaminants being detected in various areas from Canada, down the west coast of the US to the east coast – from sources ranging from UC Berkeley, to reputable newspapers, to youtubers.  There are reports of high levels of infant mortality in the aftermath of the Fukushima situation.

    How are we to know if and how we are being affected? 

    …feeling somewhat disenfrachised to say the least…

      Radioactive Rain in Canada

    Here’s a youtube showing a Canadian citizen using a geiger counter to detect high levels of radiation after a rain storm, more than double previous high reads. I know nothing of this youtuber, and cannot vouch for him.  However, it does appear that the rain is radioactive, as of August 14th.  Any comments on this?

      Wow – thanks Dogs – this is

    Wow – thanks Dogs – this is hugely helpful!!  Upon checking out the links you provided, I can see once again that this is quite a complicated subject.  The contamination survey meter sounds like the way to go.  Would there be enough residue from a bit of evaporated water to sample – seems like once the water is dried up, there would be nothing visible there to test.   Alas, $1750 is out of our price range.

     

    We feel uncertain now about going out when it’s raining, about eating our greens from the garden and about drinking the milk from our animals that graze.  We know of no reliable agency, educational institution or group that is doing monitoring and making the results public.  This is disconcerning.  So we would like to be able to answer the questions we have on our own.  Do you think there is some way we can know if our rain water is safe, without spending so much?  Perhaps another way to go would be to take rain water (or vegetable or milk samples) and send them somewhere reliable for testing.

     

    We sure appreciate your feedback!

      Testing Rain Water For Radiation

    Thank you Dogs, Joe and BadScooter for your comments and links!  Sounds like the conversation is more complicated than I had thought.  I am checking into the detectors you mentioned.  Perhaps it may be more useful (and simple) to just try to test the rain water?  That way I would know what is falling on the garden, and what the animals are ingesting. 

    I ran across this youtube of a fellow travellling across Canada testing the rain that fell on his windshield. 

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dccszCEKFdY

    He is using a Russian-made Soeks Ecotester, which costs around $300 on Ebay.  The write up says that it tests nitrates in food as well, but I’m not sure if they mean radiation.  Does anyone have any info on this detector?

     

    Thanks,

      More Possible Volcanic Venting – Mt. Shasta Area

    I cannot personally vouch for this youtuber, although he does seem to be using legitmate radar and satelite feeds.  I have been checking his site since he began reporting on what seems to be volcanic activity.  Here’s a video he posted today about apparent, potential volcanic venting happening in northern California and northern Nevada, this time near Mt. Shasta, and surrounding areas.

    http://www.youtube.com/user/dutchsinse#p/u/2/zF-NMDciLYY

    This youtuber does go into other subjects, including HAARP, earthquakes, weather, etc., however, I am not interested in shooting the messenger.  If what he is reporting on, regarding volcanic venting, is accurate and correct, then this is something we may all want to be aware of.  If this turns out to be a false alarm, or an inaccurate assessment of what is going on, then I for one would be relieved.

    On another note, I found the video he posted on March 9th, warning of increased volcanic activity in Japan interesting:

      Then what does the USGS suggest is going on?

    The USGS does not offer an alternative explantation.  Since the USGS states that it doesn’t appear to be volcanic activity, then what is their explanation of what is going on? 

    The above article does not to have a date, and is responding to inquires around activity on July 23.  Since the 23rd, there has been continued activity visible from radar observations, in now six locations in California and Nevada.

    Here’s another youtube discussing an earlier report from the USGS from a few days ago.  Again, they state that this is not volcanic activity, but offer no alternative explanation.  This was when there appeared to be only one area venting.

    Any info or insights would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Elsur
