the Fukushima disaster is worse than Chernobyl
scientists say Fukushima is worse than the 1986 Chernobyl accident,
with which it shares a maximum level-7 rating on the sliding
scale of nuclear disasters. One of the most prominent of them
is Dr Helen Caldicott, an Australian physician and long time
anti-nuclear activist who warns of "horrors to come" in Fukushima.
Chris Busby, a professor at the University of Ulster known for
his alarmist views, generated controversy during a Japan visit
last month when he said the disaster would result in more than
1 million deaths. "Fukushima is still boiling its radionuclides
all over Japan," he said. "Chernobyl went up in one go. So Fukushima
official line is that the accident at the plant is winding down
and radiation levels outside of the exclusion zone and designated
"hot spots" are safe. "But many experts warn that the crisis
is just beginning. Professor Tim Mousseau, a biological scientist
who has spent more than a decade researching the genetic impact
of radiation around Chernobyl, says he worries that many people
in Fukushima are "burying their heads in the sand." His Chernobyl
research concluded that biodiversity and the numbers of insects
and spiders had shrunk inside the irradiated zone, and the bird
population showed evidence of genetic defects, including smaller
brain sizes. "The truth is that we don't have sufficient data
to provide accurate information on the long-term impact," he
says. "What we can say, though, is that there are very likely
to be very significant long-term health impact from prolonged

Official: Chilling report from Pacific Ocean… “Silence on the
seas” — “Quite literally, there isn't any fish” — Japan
Professor: Fukushima posing reproduction risk to marine life,
ongoing concern over bio-accumulation of radioactive material
Penelope Wright, Parliament of Australia, Mar 5, 2015 (emphasis
added): “Like many others, I read an article in 2013 by Ivan
Macfadyen called ‘The ocean is broken‘. It was published in
The Sydney Morning Herald… He is an experienced sailor, so he
had the ability to compare his experience then with… other trips.
It was chilling. It was heartbreaking really. He had noticed
changes in the last years. Basically, he was confronted by the
silence that he heard, the silence on the seas, and he realised
that this was attributable to the fact that they saw very, very
few birds. They also caught very few fish… two fish.”
with Ivan Macfadyen, Talk Radio Europe, May 24, 2015 (at
14:30 in): “The reality was… if I would have had no spare dry
food on the boat — relying on fish this time around — we would
have starved to death — because, quite literally, there isn't
any fish. There's vast tracks where they're just all gone. Where
you could fish reliably, they're just not there… I used to fish
here on exactly the same course, at exactly the same time of
year… the same ocean, on the same course, into the same place
— and I could catch fish everyday, and for some reason now 10
years later they're all gone.”
not discussed in the above interview, Macfadyen has attributed
his statement “The ocean is broken” to the impact of Fukushima.
Host: "What about sea birds and all of that"? Macfadyen: "As
you get closer up to Japan they're all gone, they're not there
anymore… Everything's all gone, it's just like sailing in a
dead sea… there's nothing… Host: "After Japan you headed [to]
America, did you see any impact from…Fukushima?"
It's dead. That's where I coined the phrase, ‘The ocean's broken’
because, for thousands of miles, there's nothing. No birds,
no fish, no sharks, no dolphins, no turtles… they're not there…
all those beautiful creatures, they're just all gone… We'd seen
a whale, round about probably 1,000 miles [off] Japan, just
lying on the surface with like a big tumor… just behind its
head… it looked like it was going to die… it didn't try to get
away, it didn't flap its tail, it didn't do anything… It had
such a profound effect on me… Just talking about it makes me
feel like I want to cry."

1,000 Mile Stretch Of The Pacific Ocean Has Heated Up Several
Degrees And Scientists Don't Know Why, April 13, 2015, Michael
to two University of Washington scientific research papers that
were recently released, a 1,000 mile stretch of the Pacific
Ocean has warmed up by several degrees, and nobody seems to
know why this is happening. This giant “blob” of warm water
was first observed in late 2013, and it is playing havoc with
our climate. And since this giant “blob” first showed up, fish
and other sea creatures have been dying in absolutely massive
numbers. So could there be a connection? And what is going to
happen if the Pacific Ocean continues to warm up? Could we potentially
be facing the greatest holocaust of sea life in the Pacific
that anyone has ever observed? If so, what would that mean for
the food chain and for our food supply?...
while this has been going on, scientists have also been noticing
that sea creatures in the Pacific have been dying in record
numbers. In fact, last summer I wrote an article entitled “Why
are massive numbers of sea creatures dying along the west coast
right now?” Since then, things have continued to get even worse.
For instance, it was recently reported that the number of sea
lions washing up on Southern California beaches is at an all-time
record 2,250 sea lions, mostly pups, have washed up starving
and stranded on Southern California beaches so far this year,
a worsening phenomenon blamed on warming seas in the region
that have disrupted the marine mammals’ food supply. "The latest
tally, reported on Monday by the National Marine Fisheries Service,
is 20 times the level of strandings averaged for the same three-month
period over the past decade and twice the number documented
in 2013, the previous worst winter season recorded for Southern
California sea lions. "And of course fish are being deeply affected
as well. Sardines have declined to their lowest level in six
decades, and National Geographic says that a whole host of tiny
fish species at the bottom of the food chain are dying off rapidly."

Naidoo, CCTV anchor: From what we know about what is going on
at the plant right now, is this going to get worse?
Janette Sherman, radiation expert: I hate say this, but yes
I think it will. And my concern is the enormous amount of radioactive
material flowing with the water into the Pacific Ocean. And
we know that the ocean flows northward along Alaska and down
the coast of Canada and the United States. And I think it probably
will imperil the entire Pacific Ocean, and the the sea life
that's in it.
What you're saying here is that this water can actually reach
other shores, can reach other countries as well?
Oh absolutely, we already know that.
The radioactive content in this water — does it dissipate, or
does it just stay in the water all the time?
Well both cesium and strontium have a half-life about thirty
years. It takes 10 half-lives for each of these isotopes to
decay down to nothing. We contaminate the plankton,
and that's eaten by shrimp and oysters and fish and mammals.
And as most of these move up the food chain they get concentrated.
Particularly strontium-90 gets concentrated in the bones."

They appear to have all died around the same time… We are asking

“The fact that the carcass are intact, it rules out killer whale

Washington State shoreline, Bonnie Wood saw something grisly:
the mangled bodies of dozens of scraggly young seabirds. Walking
half a mile along the beach at Twin Harbors State Park on Wednesday,
Wood spotted more than 130 carcasses of juvenile Cassin’s auklets—the
blue-footed, palm-size victims of what is becoming one of the
largest mass die-offs of seabirds ever recorded. “It was so
distressing,” recalled Wood, a volunteer who patrols Pacific
Northwest beaches looking for dead or stranded birds. “They
were just everywhere. Every ten yards we'd find another ten
bodies of these sweet little things.”
auklets are tiny diving seabirds that look like puffballs. They
feed on animal plankton and build their nests by burrowing in
the dirt on offshore islands. Their total population, from the
Baja Peninsula to Alaska's Aleutian Islands, is estimated at
somewhere between 1 million and 3.5 million. Last year, beginning
about Halloween, thousands of juvenile auklets started washing
ashore dead from California's Farallon Islands to Haida Gwaii
(also known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) off central British
Columbia. Since then the deaths haven't stopped. Researchers
are wondering if the die-off might spread to other birds or
even fish. “This is just massive, massive, unprecedented,” said

who oversees the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team
(COASST), a program that has tracked West Coast seabird deaths
for almost 20 years."

removal, meaning the containment vessels of the No. 1, No. 2

is similar to the usual removal method. But probing the conditions
of the containment vessels by various means revealed the difficulties
of stopping the water leakage and problems regarding earthquake-proofing.
It is only natural that the new road map proposes to reject
the flooding method for the time being and study other removal
methods over the next two years. What we do not understand is
why the government and TEPCO continued to reject the recommendation
of outside experts to study the matter more broadly.

"The size and duration of the bloom, which extends from Alaska
to Southern California, has been attributed to the 'warm blob'
in the Pacific, where water temperatures have been above normal.
Algal blooms along the West coast are not uncommon, but they
typically have dissipated by the time the Dungeness season starts."

for our fishing families, which I have always supported. A lot
of people have read the truth about Fukushima and will not eat
any fish coming out of the Pacific even as far away as Alaska.
They just don't feel it's safe. Here and there I can find wild
Atlantic salmon; I NEVER eat farm raised fish.
oceans provide us with so many wonderful things besides beautiful
mammals, heavenly beaches and delicious fish of all kinds for
consumption. Many native American tribes depend on fish like
salmon as a food staple. Our oceans also provide critical plant
life. Too many do not appreciate the importance of all sea life.
TEPCO and the Japanese government are guilty of a monstrous
crime against humanity and still they haven't taken responsibility.

oh, no, it's not Fukushima. Every scientist with a resume two
miles long is wrong. It's only government mouthpieces and lawyers
for TEPCO and Japanese government officials are right. Same

had never heard of Fukushima or didn't remember such a monstrous
event. Some laughed at me when I told them what was underway
and some time in the near future would affect their crab hauls.
As I stood there watching those guys it was kind of sad they
didn't seem interested in something that was going to hurt them
down the line. I doubt they are laughing now. That means all
those fishing families who catch dungeness crab are suffering
bad because their season is pretty much dead.

Pacific Ocean Die-Off, The US Military's All Out Assault On
The Web Of Life, November 19, 2015
have heard about some of the die-offs occurring in our oceans,
but most have no understanding of how catastrophic the actual
reality is. Fukushima
is where all the fingers point as the source of the carnage
along the coast, but there is much more to the story. Those
who control the US military have virtually no regard for any
of the destruction they are wreaking on the entire web of life,
including marine life. The US Navy has long since been using
live depleted uranium ammunition and devastating sonar devices
along the Pacific coast (the
US Navy is now also waging electromagnetic warfare along our
forests and our
coasts). The US
(and other nations) have also routinely dumped nuclear waste
into our oceans. The excerpt (shown below) from the US
Navy's "Environmental Impact Statement " is beyond shocking.
Their position is this, if there are no studies to prove the
harm they are causing, then no harm was caused."
want you to go to Rense.com
and look at the big photo. It speaks for itself. In Canada,

is nothing to smirk at and it's certainly not some 'flaky' issue
cooked up by conspiracy nuts. There's been a conspiracy all
right and it's to keep the American people in the dark. Out
of sight, out of mind might seem like a good idea, but a lot
of suffering has been going on since that earthquake. As scientists
have said, Fukushima is unprecedented. Only a fool or someone
who benefits from keeping the truth from the American people
would have the audacity at this point to say all of this is
not a result of Fukushima.
I ask earlier: How do you clean up an ocean? What about all
those mammals starving to death and not reproducing, all the

in this country should be brought together with both federal
and western states officials and come up with whatever plans
they think can help stop or minimize the destruction and demand
TEPCO and the Japanese government not only foot the bill but
STOP ANY MORE LEAKAGE OR DUMPING OF RADIATION INTO THE OCEAN
NOW BECAUSE IT'S KILLING THE PACIFIC OCEAN.
for question two above, sea pups, sea lions, dolphins, whales
and more will continue to starve to death while no one does
a damn thing. PLEASE raise your voice next week to the idiot
who represents you in Congress about the killing of the Pacific
Ocean AND our military using depleted uranium! INSANE. There's
a long list of individuals who should be thrown in prison never
to see the light of day again.
forget to call or fax governors of Washington, Oregon and California
as well as your state legislatures. Emails really don't go any
good because all you get is a form response; "I'll look into
it" BS. A phone call, snail mail or fax is something that will
sit on their desks.

a short note about 9/11. The cost of America's
undeclared "war" (invasion) in Afghanistan has now reached $1
trillion borrowed dollars - massive debt heaped on us all based
on what happened on 9/11. Regular readers of my column know
I continue to press for the truth about the events of 9/11.
Military grade nanothermite is not a conspiracy theory. It was
found and tested from the rubble at the twin towers. A new,
powerful film has been released: The
Anatomy of a Great Deception. For full disclosure I receive
no compensation, but I want you to get a copy (or a few) and
share it with others or give a copy as a present. I've purchased
half a dozen copies and given them to individuals I believe
seek the truth. It's very powerful simply because it's one 'ordinary'
man's story who ask a simple question that led him to a not
so simple journey. There is factual information in this film
that many have never heard about but everyone should.
Just a suggestion, order more than one and give one
to a friend. Also,
