News) In March 2011, the province of Fukushima, Japan, was struck by a
series of devastating events that culminated in one of the worst
nuclear disasters in history. First, the area experienced a magnitude 9.0
earthquake; that, in turn, caused a 15-metre (50-foot) tsunami; and
finally, the tsunami disabled the power supply and cooling functions at
the Daiichi nuclear power plant, causing a nuclear accident on the 11th of
March which was rated a 7 on the INES scale. Four nuclear reactors were
destroyed, and clean-up work has been ongoing ever since.
estimate that it will take at least 40 years to finalize this clean-up,
and in the meantime, 300 tons of radioactive water continue to be pumped
into the Pacific Ocean each day. The BBC reported in 2013 that
the true levels of radiation around Fukushima were about 18 times higher
than originally thought. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)
estimated in that same year that between 20 and 40 trillion becquerels of
radioactive strontium had already been released into the Pacific Ocean
since the disaster in 2011. It is logical to assume that this number must
now have increased exponentially.
leads to the logical question: Is Fukushima radiation affecting the west
coast of the United States?
Research, a globalization watchdog organization, believes that there are
at least 28 lines of evidence that prove that this radiation is,
indeed, causing destruction, including:
- Several types of animals, including
walruses, seals and polar bears, have been found with open wounds and
fur loss. The U.S. Geological Survey released a statement about the
phenomenon, labeling it “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin
- Huge numbers of sea lions have
inexplicably died, with 45 percent of the pups born in June 2013 not
surviving. NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)
called this an “unusual mortality event.”
- Populations of sockeye salmon are at
an all-time low along the coastline in both Canada and Alaska.
- Fish along the west coast of Canada
have been found bleeding from their gills, eyes and bellies, and nobody
- A field of radioactive debris the size
of California was released from Fukushima, crossed the Pacific Ocean,
and reached the west coast. (Related: Media blackout over
“unimaginable” radiation levels detected at Fukushima.)
- Scientists have discovered very high
levels of cesium-137 in plankton in the Pacific close to Hawaii and the
- In a test performed in California, all
15 bluefin tuna examined were found to be contaminated with radiation.
- Canadian scientists have discovered
extremely high levels of nuclear radiation in several samples taken from
a variety of fish. One sea bass tested, for example, was found to have
1,000 becquerels of cesium per kilogram.
- A researcher with the Japan
Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute found that “30
billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of
radioactive strontium” are released into the Pacific Ocean from
Fukushima each day.
scientists believe that about 100 times more radiation has been released
into the ocean from the Fukushima disaster than the total amount released
in the Chernobyl disaster.
predict a steep rise in the number of people diagnosed with cancer after
eating fish contaminated with radiation. Daniel Hirsch, a nuclear policy
professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, noted, “Look
at what’s going on now: They’re dumping huge amounts of radioactivity into
the ocean — no one expected that in 2011. We could have large numbers of
cancer from ingestion of fish.”
all this evidence, the mainstream media remains virtually silent about the
potential for great harm to U.S. citizens. Fortunately, organizations like
Global Research and Natural News can be relied upon to spread
in the loop on Fukushima and nuclear disasters at Fukushima.news.
