While the American media is focused on pro-football bullying and the possible presidential ambitions of Gov. Chris Christie, news of the Fukushima crisis barely registers a blip on the telescreens.  Even though life on earth – as we know it  – is at stake.

The world is reeling from the tragic disaster in the Philippines, leaving at least ten thousand dead and devastating the island nation. The tsunami that struck Japan in 2011 crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant, and unless drastic measures are taken to contain the radiation, the deadly contamination could stretch across the pacific ocean into North America.  A clean-up effort is underway to move the leaking fuel rods to ‘safer” containers, which could lead to a fresh disaster.

Jonathon Landsman, writing for Natural News, has this to say:

Humanity seems to have an insatiable need to feel ‘normal’ – especially after horrible events like 9/11 and Fukushima. But, as noble as it may appear to put terrible episodes behind us, we can’t neglect even bigger threats ahead of us. For generations to come, highly-toxic radioactive particles like, Cs-137 and Strontium-90 will cause a staggering number of cancers, injury and death to millions of people – worldwide. Those ‘in the know’ must do everything in their power to protect themselves and share this news with family and friends.

In the next 18 months. Contractors, already proven to be incompetent, plan to move a huge stock-pile of damaged (highly-radioactive) fuel rods to ‘safer’ ground. Once you understand the magnitude of this project – you quickly realize what’s at stake.

It’s not over, over there.  Not by a long shot.  The most critical parts of the clean-up (to put it mildly) efforts are just beginning.  And there is evidence that the US is already suffering the effects of Fukushima fallout, as Global Research details in the article “28 Signs the West Coast is Being Absolutely Fried with Nuclear Radiation from Fukushima”

1. Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores

Wildlife experts are studying whether fur loss and open sores detected in nine polar bears in recent weeks is widespread and related to similar incidents among seals and walruses.

The bears were among 33 spotted near Barrow, Alaska, during routine survey work along the Arctic coastline. Tests showed they had “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin lesions,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement.

2. 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.”

3. Along the Pacific coast of Canada and the Alaska coastline, the population of sockeye salmon is at a historic low.  Many are blaming Fukushima.

4. Something is causing fish all along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. One test in California found that 15 out of 15 bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

9. 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

10. 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.

11. 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.”

12. BBC News recently reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are “18 times higher” than previously believed.

13. An EU-funded study concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.

14. Atmospheric radiation from Fukushima reached the west coast of the United States within a few days back in 2011.

15. At this point, 300 tons of contaminated water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day.

19. 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.

20. 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.

21. It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.

22. 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.

23. 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.”

24. 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.

Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in the muscles.

Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.

25. 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, etc.

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.

26. 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”.

27. According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.

28. 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.”

What wasteland are we creating?  With Fukushima to the West, the BP disaster in the Gulf, tar sands headed down from the North . . . we are surrounded by man-made environmental disasters.

How do we explain this decimation to future generations?

    (from Los Angeles)

    I now refuse to physically touch the water of was once my precious, beautiful Pacific Ocean, because of the Fukushima radiation.

    I also am now considering not eating seafood from the Pacific Ocean as well, and I love seafood! Which means other meat options would include contaminated chicken, perhaps? And when I research where other seafood sources are from, can I trust that they are from non-irradiated waters?

    We are killing our planet.
    We are killing ourselves.

    I understand that there are greedy persons with a lust for power & control. You know, people with god-complexes, if you will. I’m not surprised that they exist.

    What I have trouble wrapping my brain around is why in the hell do they want to crap in their own nests? Do they have a contingency plan to escape the results of their own madness? Or maybe I’ve answered my own question: they are just plain crazy as a bunch of outhouse rats.

    How do we stop them? Stop participating in the system that feeds their insanity. Follow the example set by our homeless population. Why do you think they want to criminalize the behavior of those that completely drop out of an untenable system? I know this sounds extreme. I’m just grasping at straws.

  3. Person says:

    Straws are all that we have remaining. Our sanities are taking hits Left and Right.

    All the while our planet continues to degrade into a Dante-ish Hell, and it is a Hell we have all either willingly or unwittingly created.

    I really am concerned with the things I’ve been seeing lately. Things that are taking us beyond the brink, beyond the point of no return. No political will, or maneuvers, or campaigns can alter the course of the forces at work now…..the forces of Nature, and nuclear radiation.

    Maybe it is time to start praying…to our straw gods….to our straw men.

    Straws are all that we have remaining.

  4. Dot in Seattle says:

    The West Coast of the US is in a death spiral and the so called “liberal media” just blabs about Chris Christie, which city has the tallest building, Miley Cyrus and any other unimportant crap. There could be a meteor the size of Alaska heading straight towards Earth ready to smash us to bits and those morons will still only report empty, shallow, meaningless crap. >:(

  5. Denny NNWofLA says:

    No Need to Order Out-
    A RADIOACTIVE LEAK has been discovered within a containment
    building at the Oconee Nuclear Station right here (USA) in
    South Carolina. The reactor has been temporarily taken off
    line… OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION. WOW- “Abundance of
    Caution” and “Nuke Plant” in the same paragraph. Woo-ee!!!

    Damn good thing SC has strong intelligent leaders in office.
    I’m sure they’ll just deny that pesky little leaky thing away.
    Or maybe sell it as a “Gift from God.”

    I’m so happy- doin’ the Neutron Dance.
    I’m on fire- just doin’ the Neutron Dance.

    I hear ya, Person (from L.A.). I’m even hesitant to walk on the sand as I used to do for a) grounding and b) the negative ions from crashing surf. Your idea of not eating Pacific seafood (including kelp) is well-founded. One trustworthy source (‘tho perhaps not for long, given that all ocean waters ultimately mingle) is seaweed from Maine Coast (seaveg.com). They test for radiation. (It’s not cheap, but far less expensive than a trip to the dreaded doctor who will likely prescribe poison meds which cause side effects requiring more meds, the painful scalpel, or, ta-da, radiation!) Stock up, as pristine sea veggies can pull out the bad stuff that might otherwise be lodged within us from unwise eating decisions.

    Speaking of which, the concept of people eating animals is highly debatable; but the safest chickens are those you raise humanely, with a wide variety of organic food including naturally growing bugs they can scratch for, and distilled water (most CA tap water contains fluoride–used in rat poison to name just one evil of this waste product–chlorine, and traces of every drug every person along the water system line has ingested). Then, of course, you must make the difficult decision to murder said two-legged, adorable loving pet, all to satiate some learned bloodlust. You were not born craving animal flesh, rather, “You have to be carefully taught.”

  7. Capt. Mary in Memphis says:

    Looking at your last paragraph, I’m thinking about what Tom Morello wrote on his guitar: “Arm the homeless.” – Sorry, folks. What’s left after the peaceful attempts at change are gone? The only thing not tried so far is a national strike.

  8. Denny NNWofLA says:

    Hold On…
    Just came across a website that contradicts this story-
    I don’t know much about it but it’s well worth checking
    out. Southern Fried Science- 28 fallacies about the
    Fukushima nuclear disaster’s effect on the US west coast.
    Who the hell knows anymore? Who ever did? They ain’t sayin’.

    I’ll say this…
    I will continue to walk on the sand, eat what I wish and
    continue to do battle with righties until my last irradiated
    breath.

  9. Person says:

    Jeeeeez…..a mainland radioactive leak.
    (shaking head)
    Ultimately….I’m not surprised.

  10. Person says:

    Thanks for the good info. And good luck to you….I hope we survive all of this.

    “Last irradiated breath”: there’s a song/poem title for ya’, Denny. Gives a whole new meaning to the American quest for gleaming, white teeth.
