Veteran Radiation Detection Vendor, Craig Douglas, Wages Uphill Battle Convincing Preppers & Patriots That There Was (and Is) NO Radiation Danger from Fukushima (Jan. 5, 2013)

After posting an article that began with the title "Latest Rense Promoted Fukushima Radiation Hysteria Video" on New Year's Eve, I was unexpectedly surprised to receive an email from Craig Douglas on January 2 which read as follows:

Hi Ken,

Thanks for some of your debunking the Fukushima hype and hysteria. I have been doing the same:

I am the only one in the country selling radiation detection equipment at trade shows every weekend.

Hi Craig,

Wow, what a pleasant surprise to find someone else debunking the Japan radiation hysteria blitz. I've been doing this alone since March 12, 2011.

Glad to hear from you, Ken


Thanks Ken, I knew when it happend it wouldn't be a big deal - here in the US that is. I rarely get radio interviews anymore since they seek the sensationalism.



Of course, that last statement intrigued me, so I read his web page and could see that Craig has been involved in selling radiological equipment at gun shows and Prepper expos for years and had already done lots of internet radio and TV shows discussing the topic of radiation and preparedness. He sent me a copy of an internet radio interview he did with Joyce Riley on March 17, 2011, just 6 days after the March 11, 2011 attack on Japan. He was originally scheduled to do the show with Joyce later in the month, but she asked him to come on board sooner in the wake of the Fukushima event and the subsequent radiation scare frenzy in the media. Joyce was clearly expecting to hear Craig tell her just how "dangerous" he surmised the situation with Fukushima to be when she asked him: "on a scale of 1-10, how afraid should we be?"

Craig replied: "Well, if there's a zero in there, then I would say probably zero, with 10 being the highest."

From that point forward, you can hear from Joyce's reaction that she's taken aback and somewhat flummoxed between the beliefs about Fukushima that she had acquired from the hurricane of media propaganda and the totally opposite picture she was hearing from Craig Douglas who she had invited on her show precisely because of his expertise on radiation.

What made this interview even more significant was that Craig was making these statements just 5 days after the explosion of building #3 at the Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in Fukushima when the radiation fear mongering was simply "exploding" in headlines around the world.

This was the first time that I've heard someone else on internet radio besides myself, ZS Livingstone, Don Nicoloff, and Jim Murray who had recognized that the unbelievable torrent of Fukushima radiation fear mongering featured at or that has plagued us since 3/11 was utterly bogus. Now I knew I was listening to a guy who had a brain and knew how to use it.

Here's the full interview between Joyce Riley and Craig Douglas on March 17, 2011 with commercials and music edited out:

(Email note from Craig: "I have attached a show I did on Joyce Riley's The Power Hour less than one week after the accident. I never was on her show again even though I ran into her several times at preparedness expos since then.")

Below is an article that Craig sent me that he had written about the same time he had his interview with Joyce Riley.

Update, Jan. 6, 2014. Craig sent me a Youtube link to an incredible 1985 talk in Phoenix, Arizona by nuclear materials expert Galen Winsor who reveals secret, hidden knowledge about the nature of plutonium that will shock and amaze you. Youtube won't allow me to embed the video, but I made an mp3 audio file of the talk for easy download, along with the Youtube video link. LISTEN to this 1.5 hour talk. Galen reveals the details of a conspiracy by the government and nuclear energy cartel to keep information hidden from the public that nuclear "waste" is not a waste product at all, but rather a valuable commodity (uninspectable by the public) that is being secretly utilized by those who manipulate this scam and profit from the ruse.

Published on Jun 27, 2012

Galen Winsor is a nuclear physicist of renown who worked at, and helped design, nuclear power plants in Hanford, WA; Oak Ridge, TN; Morris, IL, San Jose, CA; Wimington, NJ. Among his positions of expertise he was in charge of measuring and controlling the nuclear fuel inventory and storage.

Galen Winsor has traveled and lectured all over America, spoken on national talk radio, and made several videos exposing the misunderstood issues of nuclear radiation. He shows that fear of radiation has been exaggerated to scare people ... so a few powerful people can maintain total control of the world's most valuable power resource. Filmed by Ben Williams in 1986.

Fukushima: Just How Dangerous is Radiation?
The situation in Japan is tragic: an earthquake, a tsunami, death, homelessness, and carnage. The grimness is exacerbated by worries about radiation. But should it be?

The Fallacy of Radiation Readings Circulating Here in the US

By Craig Douglas
(written March 2011)

There has been a lot of spreading of alarming numbers of radiation readings coming from all over the media and internet since the nuclear power plant problems in Japan. With this article, I hope to shut them all down.

First off, I sell radiological survey meters, geiger counters, and dosimeters at gun shows around the country. So I would have an ulterior motive to panic you further to sell more equipment, but in actuality I am more interested in the truth getting out there instead of all this panic, hype and lies being spread suggesting the problem is much worse than it is. I have made guest appearances on many talk shows in the last week to try to get the truth out about what is going on.

Invariably, someone who owns a piece of radiation detection equipment, usually a surplus Civil Defense radiological survey meter, will go on the internet with their "report" of what they are reading in their local area. Civil Defense models such as the CD V-710, CD V-715, CD V-717, and the CD V-720 are for detecting high level gamma radiation (although they will also detect X-rays).

Let's examine gamma radiation for a moment. Gamma radiation emits as rays from a source and travels in straight lines and penetrates objects much like X-rays do. Mass is the best protector from Gamma radiation, that's why our Fallout Shelters from the 50's and 60's were underground; you only need mass between you and the gamma source to protect yourself. Because of the curvature of the earth and the nature of gamma radiation, it is not possible to measure gamma radiation from Japan here in the US with the above listed equipment. If you are measuring anything on one of these devices you either; 1) don't know how to use the equipment, 2) your equipment is not calibrated properly or faulty, 3) you are lying, 4) there is something else going on locally that they are blaming on Japan.

Here's a way to confirm this at home; take a reading as you were before outside, then without changing anything on the instrument, take it in an underground location such as a basement and you will see the reading persists on your instrument. If you really had been reading gamma radiation, the needle would have dropped to zero when you took it underground.

Beta radiation acts differently and must attach to a particle such as dirt or dust, then travel via the prevailing winds [jet stream] to be measured away from the site of trouble. This is called fallout, and in the event of a nuclear weapon detonation, the beta particles will be blown high into the atmosphere by the blast as seen with the large mushroom cloud. In this event, the beta particles could go into the jet stream and travel for some distance before finally falling back to earth where we could measure them.

Now in the case of Japan, there has been no mushroom cloud, only much smaller hydrogen explosions which even if there was any radiation present at the time of those explosions, they certainly would not have gone high into the atmosphere. Any beta radiation will travel with surface winds and wouldn't get very far before falling into the Pacific Ocean or whichever way the winds might take it. The only surplus Civil Defense models that could measure beta radiation would be the model CD V-720 (high level only), and the CD V-700 which can measure low level beta and low level gamma. Remember, this is the ONLY type of radiation that could POSSIBLY get here from Japan, and this is extremely unlikely unless there is some sort massive explosion that could get the beta particles airborne high enough to reach the jet stream.

Another device which is more important, but much less known because of the movies, is the CD V-750 dosimeter charger and dosimeters. Dosimeters are small devices that you wear that measure your accumulated gamma radiation level (expressed in roentgens or "R") over time. The dosimeters from Civil Defense have different scales on them and will be the models CD V-138 (0-.2r), CD V-730 (0-20r), CD V-740 (0-100r), and the most common CD V-742 (0-200r). If you were be exposed up to 50r you would not have any visible effects. If you were exposed from around 50-200r you would get radiation sickness depending on your immune resistance and bio-terrain. Between 200-500r some will die from these exposures. If you were exposed all the way up to 600r you would die within two weeks. These higher numbers are what people are falsely claiming to have been exposed to already here in the US, but I haven't heard any reports of people dying from radiation here, or even Japan for that matter.

For up to date information on real radiation numbers as updated every 15 minutes here in the U.S. go to

The bottom line is I need not worry what happens in Japan if I am living in the United States, even if all of the cores completely melt down. I would worry if I was in Japan, but not here. Now that's not to say that I need not worry; that earth quake could as just as easily happen off the coast of California, or even on the New Madrid fault in Missouri. Then there could be a concern for my safety here in the US.

Remember, we already fought World War III many times over. We bombed ourselves, the Soviet Union bombed themselves, the Chinese, French, etc. with all the nuclear weapons testing done over several decades. all over the world. Did you panic then? That was a much greater danger than what we are seeing in Japan today. By the time those beta particles fell to earth they were so diluted they were hardly measurable on most of the planet.
