EPA'S 2013 Protective Action Guide - is it really protective?


According to Natural News, Ernest Moniz, U.S. Secretary of Energy, made a speech in Tokyo on October 31st, stating that the success of cleanup around the Fukushima plant, including the shutdown of reactors, has global significance and that the "US has a direct interest in seeing the next steps are done efficiently and safely."


On November 1st, he reported his visit to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. "It is stunning that one can see firsthand the destructive force of the tsunami even more than two and a half years after the tragic events."


He continues, "TEPCO President Hirose, and his dedicated staff face a daunting task in the cleanup and decommissioning of Fukushima Daiichi, one that will take decades and is being carried out under very challenging conditions."


However, the situation in the USA is different. The EPA keeps the situation quiet by raising the allowable limits for radioactive particles in new guidelines. In fact, new protective action guides were signed by the president in 2013, raising allowable limits of radioactive particles.


According to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER), the EPA's 2013 Protective Action Guides are lax on nuclear radiation standards. The new standards give on-site authorities much greater "flexibility" in setting aside established limits. The new limits allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. According to PEER, this lax limit has the capability to increase a cancer rate of 1 in 10,000 people to around 1 in 23 people exposed over a 30-year period. This dramatic increase in the permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following "radiological incidents" is reason for concern.

In Section 3.7, the EPA determines that the general public should be evacuated at levels beginning at 1,000 mrems, yet further down, soil levels are found to be safe at 2,000 mrems "for reentry of some displaced individuals." But the question remains, will the EPA divulge the true scenario to the American people?
