Okay guys i was watching the show called Destination Truth last night about the Chernobyl disaster and ever time they were getting spikes on the EMF Detector,thermal, and other equipment they couldn't investigate for very long because the radiation levels were getting dangerously high for humans and they had to move to the next spot(even though they were catching very good evidence).  I was thinking that maybe if their is a lot of radiation at a site that is supposidely haunted their could be a environmental cause to the hauntings(even though their was a lot of people that died in the  Chernobyl disaster).
What do you guys think?

          It's possible.  I think we know as much about spirits as we do how to track them.  (That almost made
sense to me)  Anyway , I just recently started viewing/recording those shows, I missed that one but for sake of
knowing, there is the web site that allows--from what I can tell-- 100% viewing of all their episodes.  There's
an episode filmed near Mt. Fuji  (spelling?) in Japan where "hundereds" had apparently made a spot for suicide
which is pretty recent in it's use--not just the feudal Japan, methods of retaining one's honor...sepiku..or
"belly cutting" .  The added constraint had been the massed iron deposits left from the volcanic erruptions.  This
could have "contributed" to the evidence that the team did not get on camera , which they added toward the end of the investigation.

There have been some form of bacteria or microbe that have developed at ground zero, so there is life there, even within such intense radiation, so in a way I suppose there is no telling.

Check out some of the first Ghost Hunters shows and you will see they had a Geiger Counter with them a few times. But they never got more than a normal readings from it. I would ASSUME any readings above normal would come from Radon build up in a basement in a Non Industrial environment.

possible, if youre meaning we have Natural meanings for hauntings. however, rad should have nothing to do with EMF readings.  
i watched the episode as well (love that show)

I am pretty sure there were hardly any deaths right at the nuclear reactor. Most people died at home and in hospitals, some years later. Ghosts almost always appear where they died, so there shouldn't be much there.

I have never thought of Chernobyl as a haunted place but I could be wrong. Radiation is something I never really looked for when ghost hunting, so I have no first hand experiences.

They just as often appear in the place where they were the happiest as well. Or places that hold strong memories, or create strong emotions in them. I've seen just as many "ghosts" in places where they were the happiest (where they went on the first date with their life partner, the house they spent the majority of their entire adult life at).

If it were true that a majority of "ghosts" clung to where they died, hospitals would be ground zero of paranormal activity. To the point that the hospitals would have to probably shut down due to the amount of 'paranormal' disturbances.

I could easily see how Chernobyl would be a hot spot for 'paranormal activity.' Due to it being all but abandoned by humanity, and the fact that so many people's lives were snuffed short, and the last strong memories they would have would be Chernobyl.

But I'm not sure how radiation would affect "ghosts." I've never had the opportunity to go to a irradiated 'haunted' place. Though have always loved a chance to go prowl in Prypiat.

You are right of course, but I can't believe that anyone would choose Chernobyl as their happy place to dwell in the afterlife. That would leave the tragic death sort of ghost which is usually right where the death happened.

Well, if popular theory is correct. Ghosts tend to cling to the strongest memory they have.

Lives that are cut short, they tend to cling to the strongest, vivid memory they have - usually their own death.

I could imagine that those that were sent to clean up the reactor, were dieing in confusion, as they weren't aware of the severity they were going into.

And those that lived in Prypiat (and surrounding areas) only knew that one minute everything was honkey doorey, and the next, there was a huge explosion and nothing was the same. So I could see how Chernobyl, Prypriat and the rest of the "Dead Zone" could harbor a lot of 'trapped souls'. Cause for many, that was the last place they were alive before hell (literally) erupted.

If the the radiation levels at Chernobyl are still high enough to cause ionization one would expect to find a lot of anomalous EM readings.

I am pretty sure the levels are high enough, but you have to be right on top of the melted core. It is safe to stand a stones throw from the building now, but I wouldn't want to be there for very long.

I watched a nice video of it on youtube recently.

Not very sure about this. Have a look: Solar and geomagnetic Paranormal activity

Very interesting.  At least someone recognizes the fact there is constantly changing EM weather.  A more complete EM picture would also include thunderstorm activity within 100 miles.

I hear you.  It still amazes me that people are allowed to get that close.  Ghost busters get excited about fluctuations in the miligauss range.  That may well be close enough to pickup at those levels.
