“March 13, 2011: Aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, 100 miles offshore of Fukushima: “During that March 13 phone call, Cleveland wrote, Troy Mueller- the deputy administrator for naval reactors at the US Department of Energy- said the radiation was the equivalent of “about 30 times what you would detect just on a normal air sample out at sea. So it’s much greater than what we had thought.” Mueller reportedly warned other American officials after taking samples on the Reagan. “We didn’t think we would detect anything at 100 miles.” After Mueller made that remark, according to Cleveland’s transcript, Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman asked him if those levels were “significantly higher than anything you would have expected.” He responded yes. When Poneman later asked Mueller, “How do the levels detected compare with what is permissible?” Mueller said those on the scene could suffer irreversible harm from the radiation within hours. “If it were a member of the general public, it would take- well, it would take about 10 hours to reach a limit,” he said. At that point, Mueller added, “it’s a thyroid dose issue.” If people are exposed to levels beyond the Protective Action Guideline threshold released by the Energy Department, Cleveland acknowledged in his report, radiation could have ravaged their thyroid glands.”
10 hours at 30 times normal background radiation…”irreversible harm.”
Now consider the radiation levels reported in this article:

“The Last Whale”
“As I rocked in the moonlight,
And reefed the sail.
It’ll happen to you
Also without fail,
If it happens to me.
Sang the world’s last whale.”
