Something Is Killing Life All Over The Pacific Ocean – Could It Be Fukushima?
The map below comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center
It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all
over the country are elevated. As you will notice, this is particularly
true along the west coast of the United States. Every single day, 300
tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That
means that the total amount of radioactive material released from
Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in
our food chain.
There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths
along the California coastline…
At island rookeries off the Southern California coast, 45 percent of
the pups born in June have died, said Sharon Melin, a wildlife
biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service based in Seattle.
Normally, less than one-third of the pups would die. It’s gotten
so bad in the past two weeks that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration declared an “unusual mortality event.”
Along the Pacific coast of Canada and the Alaska coastline, the population of sockeye salmon is at a historic low
. Many are blaming Fukushima.
Something is causing fish all along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs
A vast field of radioactive debris from Fukushima that is approximately the size of California
has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is starting to collide with the west coast.
It is being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coast could double
over the next five to six years.
Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137
in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.
One test in California found that 15 out of 15
bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.
Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage
of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…
• 73 percent of mackerel tested
• 91 percent of the halibut
• 92 percent of the sardines
• 93 percent of the tuna and eel
• 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
• 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish
Canadian authorities are finding extremely high levels of nuclear radiation
in certain fish samples…
Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of
radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had
1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.
Some experts believe that we could see very high levels of cancer along the west coast just from people eating contaminated fish
“Look at what’s going on now: They’re dumping huge amounts of
radioactivity into the ocean — no one expected that in 2011,” Daniel
Hirsch, a nuclear policy lecturer at the University of California-Santa
Cruz, told Global Security Newswire. “We could have large numbers of cancer from ingestion of fish.”
BBC News recently reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are “18 times higher
” than previously believed.
An EU-funded study
concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.
Atmospheric radiation from Fukushima reached the west coast of the United States within a few days
back in 2011.
At this point, 300 tons
of contaminated water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.
A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan
Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute says that “30
billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of
radioactive strontium” are being released into the Pacific Ocean from
Fukushima every single day
According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium
have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.
According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day
It has been estimated that up to 100 times
as much nuclear radiation has been released into the ocean from
Fukushima than was released during the entire Chernobyl disaster.
One recent study concluded that a very large plume of
cesium-137 from the Fukushima disaster will start flowing into U.S.
coastal waters early next year
Ocean simulations showed that the plume of radioactive cesium-137
released by the Fukushima disaster in 2011 could begin flowing into
U.S. coastal waters starting in early 2014 and peak in 2016.
It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020
It is being projected that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon “have cesium levels 5 to 10 times higher
” than what we witnessed during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many decades ago.
The immense amounts of nuclear radiation getting into the
water in the Pacific Ocean has caused environmental activist Joe
Martino to issue the following warning
Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.
The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are
constantly coming from Fukushima are going to affect the health of
those living the the northern hemisphere for a very, very long
time. Just consider what Harvey Wasserman
had to say about this…
Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it
emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of
damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent
of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go
higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental
growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary
ailments, including cancer.
Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.
According to a recent Planet Infowars report
, the California coastline is being transformed into “a dead zone”…
The California coastline is becoming like a dead zone.
If you haven’t been to a California beach lately, you probably don’t
know that the rocks are unnaturally CLEAN – there’s hardly any kelp,
barnacles, sea urchins, etc. anymore and the tide pools are similarly
eerily devoid of crabs, snails and other scurrying signs of life… and
especially as compared to 10 – 15 years ago when one was wise to wear
tennis shoes on a trip to the beach in order to avoid cutting one’s feet
on all the STUFF of life – broken shells, bones, glass, driftwood,
There are also days when I am hard-pressed to find even a half dozen seagulls and/or terns on the county beach.
You can still find a few gulls trolling the picnic areas and some of
the restaurants (with outdoor seating areas) for food, of course, but,
when I think back to 10 – 15 years ago, the skies and ALL the beaches
were literally filled with seagulls and the haunting sound of their
cries both day and night…
NOW it’s unnaturally quiet.
A study conducted last year
came to the conclusion that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear
disaster could negatively affect human life along the west coast of
North America from Mexico to Alaska “for decades”.
According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete
Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup
of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be
threatened "for thousands of years
Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous,
and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that
would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if
they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the
evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the
radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could
not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.
Are you starting to understand why so many people are so deeply concerned about what is going on at Fukushima?
