I'm curious... Was the map published by an official agency? What is the recommended course of action now that we have this information?

It's a Hoax!

This image has been refuted as a hoax.

Fake image of nuclear meltdown risk going around the Internet - TheWeatherSpace.com

I looked up Australian Radiation Services and it's not even a government agency. It's a private testing lab. They don't have anything about this on their website.

Regards,

Matt

Total idiocy. Fallout from the Castle Bravo nuclear test (largest and dirtiest US nuclear weapons test ever, done on the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific) fell from 3000 RAD at 100 miles from ground zero to 100 RAD at 300 miles, a 97% drop. This is not to say that 100 RAD is good for you, but it does show that radiation levels fall steeply as you get further from their source.

So when some idiot puts out a map showing a radiation plume blowing off 3000 RADs extending half way across the Pacific then falling to just 750 RADs (a 25% reduction) by the time they've circled 1/3rd of the way around the planet, they're just outright lying, pulling data out of their backside. Throw in that the graphic comes from a survivalist website, and you have conspiracy-theory nutcases doing their best to scare people.

I bought this sticker as a joke and got a few laughs about it. But now I'm not sure I should leave it on. Or maybe I should try to find a "Sorry, We're Full" sticker?

Send a message via Yahoo to Alf S.
Hi: Terry G...Maybe your additional sticker should read "Wipe your feet"!!!

I just received an email from Dr Joseph Young, managing director at ARS. He confirmed it is a hoax.

Regards,

Matt

Is that a radioactive sticker? If so one day you'll run into a hard a*s dot cop and that sticker may get you a ticket, well really a fine of about a grand that's what it can cost a truck driver for improper placards on his trailer, that includes leaving a placard on an empty trailer. I think you should lose the sticker.

Put up a shower tent outside the door with a sign: "Decontaminate in shower before entering shelter"

It's a fallout shelter sign (right), not a radioactive material placard (left)

All eggs are fallout shelters for husbands. If the DW blows her stack, DH can sleep and weather the fallout in the trailer.
