The west coast of the United States is being absolutely fried by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the mainstream media is not telling us the truth about this.Â What you are about to see is a collection of evidence that is quite startling.Â Taken collectively, this body of evidence shows that nuclear radiation from Fukushima is affecting sea life in the Pacific Ocean and animal life along the west coast of North America in some extraordinary ways.Â But the mainstream media continues to insist that we donâ€™t have a thing to worry about.Â The mainstream media continues to insist that radiation levels in the Pacific and along the west coast are perfectly safe.Â Are they lying to us?Â Evaluate the evidence compiled below and come to your own conclusionsâ€¦
#1Â Independent researchers have measured alarmingly high levels of radiation on the beaches of the west coast.Â For example, the video posted below was taken on December 23rd, 2013 at Pacifica State Beach.Â As you can see inÂ this video, radiation levels near the water are up to five times higher than normal background radiationâ€¦
#2Â According toÂ Oceanus Magazine, the total amount of cesium-137 that has been released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima isÂ 10,000 to 100,000 times greaterÂ than the amount released into the oceans by the Chernobyl disaster or by the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests of the 1960s.
#3Â Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur has admitted that while he was at MSNBC he was instructed not to warn the publicÂ about the radiation coming from Fukushimaâ€¦
â€śI was on MSNBC at the time when this happened, I said, â€śDonâ€™t trust what the Japanese government is saying, theyâ€™ll say trust what the electric power company is saying. Go, go, go, get outta there. Get as far away from that plant as you can. Itâ€™s literally a core meltdown.â€ť And they always donâ€™t want people to panic, so they were always like, â€śOh itâ€™s going to be okay.â€ť […] Iâ€™m like, â€śYouâ€™re crazy man, donâ€™t be anywhere near that reactor.â€ť And I remember at the time, of course not at The Young Turks, but on cable news, people were like, â€śHey Cenk, you know, I donâ€™t know that you want to say that, because the official government position is that itâ€™s safe.â€ť Oh, is that the official government position? Now go explain that to the people who served on the USS Ronald Reagan.â€ť
#4Â 71 U.S. sailorsÂ who assisted with the initial Fukushima relief efforts have developed serious diseases such as testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, Leukemia, â€śunremitting gynecological bleedingâ€ť and brain tumors since that time as a result of exposure to radiation coming from Fukushima.
#5Â Something is causing starfish all along the west coast of the United States to literally disintegrate into piles of â€śwhite gooâ€śâ€¦
Researchers say nuclear pollution from the 2011 earthquake in Japan that damaged the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant could be partially to blame for a disease wiping out starfish along the West Coast.
Dr. Peter Raimondi of the University of Santa Cruz says something is making starfish susceptible to whats believed to be a bacteria coined â€śWasting Disease.â€ť It essentially disintegrates the marine invertebrates into a white goo, after the starfish loses its legs.
#6Â Bald eagles are dyingÂ in unprecedented numbersÂ in Utah, and nobody can figure out why this is happeningâ€¦
Bald eagles are dying in Utah â€” 20 in the past few weeks alone â€” and nobody can figure out why.
Hundreds of the majestic birds â€” many with wing spans of 7 feet or more â€” migrate here each winter, gathering along the Great Salt Lake and feasting on carp and other fish that swim in the nearby freshwater bays.
Earlier this month, however, hunters and farmers across five counties in northern and central Utah began finding the normally skittish raptors lying listless on the ground. Many suffered from seizures, head tremors and paralysis in the legs, feet and wings.
#7Â Huge numbers of dead birds are dropping dead and washing upÂ along the coastlines of Alaska.Â It is being reported that many of the carcases of the dead birds are â€śbroken open and bleedingâ€ť.
#8Â The recent deaths of thousands of birdsÂ in OregonÂ is absolutely baffling scientists.
#9Â Something is causing large numbersÂ of seals and walrusesÂ up in Alaska to lose hair and develop â€śoozing soresâ€ť.
#10Â Substantial numbers of polar bears along the coast of Alaska are suffering fromÂ fur loss and open sores.
#11Â There is anÂ epidemic of sea lion deathsÂ along the California coastline.
#12Â The population of sockeye salmon along the coastlines of Alaska is at aÂ â€śhistoric lowâ€ť.
#13Â Something is causing Pacific herringÂ to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.
#14Â Dangerous levels of cesium-137 have been discovered inÂ mushrooms and berriesÂ grown along the west coast.
#15Â According toÂ an absolutely shocking reportÂ put out by the National Academy of Sciences, it has been proven that Pacific Bluefin tuna have transported radioactive material â€śacross the entire North Pacific Oceanâ€ťâ€¦
â€śWe report unequivocal evidence that Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, transported Fukushima-derived radionuclides across the entire North Pacific Ocean.â€ť
#16Â Something seems to be causing a substantial spike in the death rate forÂ killer whales living off of the coast of British Columbia.
#17Â Experts have foundÂ very high levels of cesium-137Â in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.
#18Â One test in California found thatÂ 15 out of 15Â Bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.
#19Â Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found inÂ a very high percentageÂ of the fish that Japan was selling to Canadaâ€¦
â€˘ 73 percent of the mackerel
â€˘ 91 percent of the halibut
â€˘ 92 percent of the sardines
â€˘ 93 percent of the tuna and eel
â€˘ 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
â€˘ 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish
#20Â AnÂ EU-funded studyÂ concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.
#21Â One very experienced Australian adventurer has stated that he felt as thoughÂ â€śthe ocean itself was deadâ€ťÂ as he journeyed from Japan to San Francisco recentlyâ€¦
The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.
â€śAfter we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,â€ť Macfadyen said.
â€śWe hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.
â€śIâ€™ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and Iâ€™m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.â€ť
In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.
â€śPart of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And itâ€™s still out there, everywhere you look.â€ť
#22Â It is being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coastÂ could doubleÂ over the next five to six years.
#23Â The deputy chairman of Russiaâ€™s State Duma Committee for Natural Resources,Â Maxim Shingarkin, says that seafood captured off the northwest coast of the United States is so radioactive that it represents a â€śdanger for mankindâ€ťâ€¦
â€śCurrents in the world ocean are so structured that the areas of seafood capture near the U.S. northwest coast are more likely to contain radioactive nuclides than even the Sea of Okhotsk, which is much closer to Japan. These products are the main danger for mankind because they can find their way to peopleâ€™s tables on a massive scale.â€ť
#24Â According to oneÂ recent scientific report, radiation from Fukushima could affect our seafood for â€śmany generationsâ€ť and ultimately kill more than a million peopleâ€¦
This cycle will last for many generations, because of the food chain of fish and other marine fauna, and the radioactivity will be recycled and in fact the meat content will increase rather than decreasing by decay. Even if only one one-hundredth of the radioactivity (more than 1e15 Bq of CS137) were to enter this recirculation pattern, the collective whole body ingestion dose over many generations would exceed 1e7 Sv, sufficient to kill more than 1,000,000 people.
#25Â The Japanese government has estimated that approximatelyÂ 300 tons of highly radioactive water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility every single day.
#26Â A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan Meteorological Agencyâ€™s Meteorological Research Institute says that â€ś30 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of radioactive strontiumâ€ť are being released into the Pacific Ocean from FukushimaÂ every single day.
#27Â According to Tepco, a total of somewhere betweenÂ 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritiumÂ have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.
#28Â According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima DaiichiÂ every single day.
#29Â It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific OceanÂ by the year 2020.
#30Â It has been estimated that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon â€śhave cesium levels 5 to 10 times higherâ€ť than what we witnessed during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many decades ago.
#31Â The immense amount of radioactive material being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issueÂ the following warningâ€¦
â€śYour days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.â€ť
#32Â The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly being released from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living in the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time.Â Just consider whatÂ Harvey WassermanÂ had to say about thisâ€¦
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-90â€™s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.
#33Â Outdoor radiation levels at Fukushima recently hitÂ a new all-time high.
#34Â According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could takeÂ up to 40 years to complete.
#35Â Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be threatenedÂ â€śfor thousands of yearsâ€ťâ€¦
â€śConditions 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;Â they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.â€ť
#36Â There are very alarming reports that new â€śunexplained plumes of radioactive steamâ€ť are rising at Fukushima.Â Japanese officials are not able to get inside and see what is causing these plumes.Â Some are speculating that the crisis at Fukushima just got a whole lot worse.Â The following is from a recentÂ Ecologist articleâ€¦
Unexplained plumes of radioactive steam have been rising from Fukushimaâ€™s Reactor Building 3, Could a major meltdown be on the way?
Fukushimaâ€™s Reactor Building 3 exploded on 13th March 2011 as a result of a hydrogen buildup, breaching the buildingâ€™s containment and emitting a huge plume of radiation. The reactor itself is in meltdown.
And now fresh plumes of steam have been seen coming out the structure. These have now been confirmed by Tepco, the owner of the nuclear plant, from 19th December onwards. The company believes the steam is coming from the fifth floor of the building.
However it does not know the cause of the steam. Lethal levels of radiation and the physical damage to the structure have so far made entry and inspection impossible.
If a full-blown meltdown does happen at Fukushima, it would be an environmental disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in human history.
As we enter 2014, we are entering a time when the world is becoming increasingly unstable.Â The global economy is being shaken, political corruption is seemingly everywhere, evidence of advanced social decay is all around us and the earth itself is starting to groan and crack with increasingly regularity.Â But the mainstream media continues to insist that everything is going to be just fine.Â That is one of the reasons why I wroteÂ my new novel.Â The American people deserve to hear the truth and be warned about the great challenges that are rapidly approaching.
In the end, millions upon millions of people could end up getting seriously ill as a result of all of this radiation coming from Fukushima.Â Most of them will never even know why they have gotten sick.
And if there is a major earthquake or a significant accident during the cleanup at Fukushima, we could actually see huge sections of Japan be evacuated permanently.
It would be hard to overstate just how serious all of this is.Â But you wonâ€™t hear about this from the mainstream media.Â Their story is that â€śeverything is okayâ€ť and they are sticking to it.
