The EPA has once again turned off all the radiation measuring devices in order to avoid letting Americans know what is really happening. Treason is the word that fits here and I trust that the people responsible will be held accountable.
ALERT! EPA Radiation Detection Goes Down, Right After High Level Plumes Released!
Prep To Evacuate! USAF Base Orders 1,200 Radiation Suits In New Mexico
"Due to a massive radiological event in New Mexico and the release of airborne plutonium, Kirkland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico has ordered 1,200 radiation suits and our videographer POTRBlog has put out this prepare to evacuate notice in the video below.
The obvious purpose for this order is to prepare for another massive Plutonium release from DOE’s WIPP plant outside Carlsbad New Mexico.
BUGOUT ALERT! CDC Preps MASSIVE Ventilator Order, References Radiological Event And Pandemic Influenza
One thing we know for sure, it would be wise risk mitigation to be able to IMMEDIATELY escape upwind of the WIPP site within a moments notice for anyone living within a 200 mile zone. This means having a P100 mask and items to sustain comfort immediately available and transportable (along with a plan to get out).
We expect that the DOE WIPP site should be tracking levels of Hydrogen, Methane, & VOC’s from increased radiolysis occurring in the WIPP mine. But, this does not mean they will alert you. DOE denied the Plutonium release for DAYS.
Alternative media is just now reporting the size of the Plutonium release, we first quantified and reported the size of that Plutonium release over 1 week ago. People did not want to believe there was a massive release because of Normalcy Bias, don’t make that mistake again!"

Official: 4.4 mil disintegration of alpha radiation detected at leaking U.S. nuclear site, includes Plutonium; Highest recorded level — Santa Fe Briefing: “Serious incident involving radiation at the WIPP site” — Gov’t “reaching out to employees who are worried” about exposure
"Jessica Onsurez, Carlsbad Current-Argus reporter, Feb. 20, 2014 (emphasis added): “[US Dept. of Energy Carlsbad Field Office Manager Joe] Franco: 4.4 mil disintegration of alpha radiation highest recorded level, declining levels indicate one time event #WIPP”Source Article:
Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center, Feb. 20, 2014: Scientists [...] have detected trace amounts of the radioactive isotopes Americium (241Am) and Plutonium (239+240Pu) on an air filter from an ambient air sampling station located approximately 0.6 of a mile northwest of the WIPP [...] Analyses of this filter show that 0.64 Becquerels (Bq) of 241Am and 0.046 Bq of 239+240Pu were found to be deposited on the filter media. The Becquerel is an international unit of measure of radioactivity and is defined as one disintegration per second.
City of Santa Fe, NM Emergency Management, week ending Feb. 23, 2014: Late last week a radiation leak was detected in an underground chamber of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) just outside of Carlsbad. This marked the first serious incident involving radiation at the WIPP site and comes just weeks after a truck fire [...] it is important to understand the effects different types of radiation can have on the human body and how to protect yourself in the extremely rare event that you are exposed to radiation either accidentally or through a deliberate attack.
Carlsbad Current-Argus, Feb. 22, 2014: Meanwhile, an organization affiliated with the Department of Labor began reaching out to employees who are worried they may have been exposed to health risks from the radiation.

"Los Angeles Times, Feb. 18, 2014 at 1:53a ET (emphasis added): The Energy Department suspended normal operations for a fourth day at its New Mexico burial site for defense nuclear waste after a radiation leak inside salt tunnels where the material is buried. [...] Officials [...] said little about the extent of the problem or how it could be cleaned up. [...] How long the repository would be closed and the effects on the defense nuclear cleanup program were unclear. [...] WIPP officials have said little about what could have triggered the radiation leak.
Edwin Lyman, a senior scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists:
The cause most likely involved radioactive material on the outside of a container that was not properly decontaminated
A less probable cause [...] was a radiological process inside a container that forced material out
The extent of the cleanup operation necessary to get the repository back in operation depended on the intensity and range of contamination in the underground tunnels
“Could be a mess [...] If there is airborne contamination and it involves plutonium, they are going to need to decontaminate [...] If it is in the ventilation system, it could have spread”
Carlsbad Current-Argus, Feb. 18, 2014: Airborne radioactivity [...] levels aren’t yet low enough to allow non-essential personnel back on site, according to a person familiar with the situation. Russell Hardy, director of the Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring and Research Center, was told the information [Monday] by an employee of the nuclear waste repository [...] [CEMRC] has monitored the air quality in and around WIPP since the 1990s and tests for radiation contamination at the facility by collecting a filter from the exhaust shaft each morning [...] The last air filter sample CEMRC has is from Friday, before airborne radiation was detected downwind in the south salt mine of Panel 7, Room 7, at 11:30 p.m. later that night. [...] Data on the quantity and type of radiation that was present in the airborne particulates below surface, and how it compares to regular background radiation levels, is not available according to the DOE.
Deb Gill, DOE spokesperson: “I don’t even have that because it gets into the compare-and-contrast point of view [...] I know that when we do have additional information, then I think that can be part of what is provided, but we don’t have that right now [...] We certainly hope [recent events don't impact the future mission of WIPP]”
Russell Hardy, director of the CEMRC at New Mexico State University: “It’s my understanding that at some point in the near future we will be allowed to collect our filters, and at that point we’ll be able to do our analysis [...] Our mission is to report whatever we find”
