Lime Gulch is the name of the latest Buff Creek fire. Funny thing, there is no Lime Gulch around there apparently.

This map displays average monthly energy consumption in kilowatt hours (kWh) at the Census block group level between January 2011 and June 2012.
Goes nicely with the NYC report “NYC Energy Benchmarking Report for Non-Residential Properties”.

NOAA’s HYSPLIT model shows clouds of highly radioactive Cesium wafting over the US after Fuku blew sky high. Only one month’s worth shown.

…is about more than spreading the cancer of suburban development. It is also the latest installment in a long project to cover up history and erase responsibility.
Distribution of plutonium contamination from Rocky Flats in becquerels per square meter (one becquerel equals one disintegration or burst of radiation per second). The original version of this map was prepared by P. W. Krey and E. P. Hardy of the Atomic Energy Commission’s Health and Safety Laboratory, New York City, and published in their 1970 report, “Plutonium in Soil Around the Rocky Flats Plant,” HASL 235. Sampling done in September 2011 along Indiana St. by independent scientist Marco Kaltofen showed that present deposits of plutonium are roughly equivalent to the levels measured by Krey and Hardy in 1970. The dotted red line shows the route of the proposed Jefferson Parkway.
