This site was shut down in May 2014. The purpose of Nuclearcrimes.org was to bring awareness to many environmental radiation topics, various crimes of an atomic nature, and 'orphaned nuclear issues' (such as subcritical nuclear testing, 'global fallout' and much more) to inspire citizen action. The research featured on this site was completed by Nuclearcrimes.org founder Andrew Kishner. Some of the analyses from the website are now in e-book form. They include (follow link to Amazon.com book page):
'Crossing the Line: Trafficking and Torture of Human Guinea Pigs in 1950s U.S.-U.K. Atomic Test Biological Experiments' (2014)
'Rig, Rad, Run: Radiation Monitoring, Fukushima, and Our Nuclear Dystopia' (December 2014)
If you liked the research, insights, and discussions on my website, NuclearCrimes.org, especially the material about Fukushima, I think you'll really like this book. It is a 'best of my Fukushima content' compilation coupled with something my website viewers rarely got: a look into my personal struggles and experiences as an anti-nuclear online research activist. I provide the reader with a full retrospective-reconstruction of the various doses I received of "activist grief" since 2011, which, like radiation, accumulated and accumulated until a near-tragic medical incident in May 2014 brought me to the breaking point, leading me to shut down my website for good. It's all in there, including jabs at journalists, a major American seafood company, and U.S. federal radiation protection agencies and other authorities who were too busy assuring us of complete safety from Fukushima to actual rigorously monitor and test for radiation. The book also criticizes plagiarizing bloggers and takes a small poke at Enenews.com. The book begins with an essay about my take on the 'question authority' concept that also explains the meaning of a new term I use to describe myself: 'unapproved channel.'
The main purpose of the 'RIG, RAD, RUN' is to point out the poor state of radiation monitoring in the U.S. The book carefully dissects and examines the EPA's porous, ill-maintained and partially-blind RadNet system and the non-scientific laboratory testing response by that agency and the FDA to Fukushima since the 2011 disaster. The book also lays out the logical argument for the conclusion that Americans might have been harmed from hotspots and other unknown dangers related to Fukushima's airborne fallout in the U.S. because of our worrisome and failing federal radiation monitoring program, and state ones too, namely the 2011 monitoring response by California's public health agency. The book also discusses the Fukushima radiation-related health dangers on a continuing basis to Americans from their Pacific-sourced seafood supply because of the same kinds of failures.
'RIG, RAD, RUN' beckons Americans to take a hard look at the level of protection they are being promised about their air, food, and water being monitored and kept 'safe' from harmful radiation. Did you know that the level of contamination in food that was considered to be un-fit for human consumption by the U.S. FDA in the wake of Chernobyl is now considered safe by the FDA? The book dedicates a chapter to the convoluted, mortality-accepting and ever-rising 'DIL' (Derived Intervention Level), the FDA's radiation protection standard for food.
When you put your trust in a radiation monitoring network that is broken, or basically RIGGED, and there is a radiation event, you should RUN! Read the book to learn the ABCs of radiation monitoring and how we can avoid the need to flee from radiation disasters. Simply put: citizens have their work cut out for them, in many ways, but principally they need to set up fully comprehensive citizen radiation monitoring programs (not just Geiger Counter 'networks') BEFORE the next radiation incident occurs.
'RIG, RAD, RUN' looks at the U.S. Fukushima radiation monitoring response in multiple contexts, including nuclear history, philosophy and environmental science, and appeals to citizens to hear Fukushima's wake-up call and grasp their nuclear reality.
Andrew's next e-book discusses the historical application of an innovative legal remedy for radiation victims.
