Fukushima-Radiation-450x270

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.  What you are about to see is a collection of evidence that is quite startling.  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.  But the mainstream media continues to insist that we don’t have a thing to worry about.  The mainstream media continues to insist that radiation levels in the Pacific and along the west coast are perfectly safe.  Are they lying to us?  Evaluate the evidence compiled below and come to your own conclusions…

#1 Independent researchers have measured alarmingly high levels of radiation on the beaches of the west coast.  For example, the video posted below was taken on December 23rd, 2013 at Pacifica State Beach.  As you can see in this video, radiation levels near the water are up to five times higher than normal background radiation…

#2 According to Oceanus Magazine, the total amount of cesium-137 that has been released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima is 10,000 to 100,000 times greater than the amount released into the oceans by the Chernobyl disaster or by the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests of the 1960s.

#3 Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur has admitted that while he was at MSNBC he was instructed not to warn the public about the radiation coming from Fukushima…

“I was on MSNBC at the time when this happened, I said, “Don’t trust what the Japanese government is saying, they’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. It’s literally a core meltdown.” And they always don’t want people to panic, so they were always like, “Oh it’s going to be okay.” [...] I’m like, “You’re crazy man, don’t be anywhere near that reactor.” And I remember at the time, of course not at The Young Turks, but on cable news, people were like, “Hey Cenk, you know, I don’t know that you want to say that, because the official government position is that it’s safe.” Oh, is that the official government position? Now go explain that to the people who served on the USS Ronald Reagan.”

#4 71 U.S. sailors who assisted with the initial Fukushima relief efforts have developed serious diseases such as testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, Leukemia, “unremitting gynecological bleeding” and brain tumors since that time as a result of exposure to radiation coming from Fukushima.

#5 Something is causing starfish all along the west coast of the United States to literally disintegrate into piles of “white goo“…

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 “Wasting Disease.” It essentially disintegrates the marine invertebrates into a white goo, after the starfish loses its legs.

#6 Bald eagles are dying in unprecedented numbers in Utah, and nobody can figure out why this is happening…

Bald eagles are dying in Utah — 20 in the past few weeks alone — and nobody can figure out why.

Hundreds of the majestic birds — many with wing spans of 7 feet or more — 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.

#7 Huge numbers of dead birds are dropping dead and washing up along the coastlines of Alaska.  It is being reported that many of the carcases of the dead birds are “broken open and bleeding”.

#8 The recent deaths of thousands of birds in Oregon is absolutely baffling scientists.

#9 Something is causing large numbers of seals and walruses up in Alaska to lose hair and develop “oozing sores”.

#10 Substantial numbers of polar bears along the coast of Alaska are suffering from fur loss and open sores.

#11 There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline.

#12 The population of sockeye salmon along the coastlines of Alaska is at a “historic low”.

#13 Something is causing Pacific herring to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

#14 Dangerous levels of cesium-137 have been discovered in mushrooms and berries grown along the west coast.

#15 According to an absolutely shocking report put out by the National Academy of Sciences, it has been proven that Pacific Bluefin tuna have transported radioactive material “across the entire North Pacific Ocean”…

“We report unequivocal evidence that Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, transported Fukushima-derived radionuclides across the entire North Pacific Ocean.”

#16 Something seems to be causing a substantial spike in the death rate for killer whales living off of the coast of British Columbia.

#17 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.

#18 One test in California found that 15 out of 15 Bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

#19 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 the mackerel

• 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

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

#21 One very experienced Australian adventurer has stated that he felt as though “the ocean itself was dead” as he journeyed from Japan to San Francisco recently…

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.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

“We 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.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’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.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

“Part 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 it’s still out there, everywhere you look.”

#22 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.

#23 The deputy chairman of Russia’s State Duma Committee for Natural Resources, Maxim Shingarkin, says that seafood captured off the northwest coast of the United States is so radioactive that it represents a “danger for mankind”…

“Currents 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 people’s tables on a massive scale.”

#24 According to one recent scientific report, radiation from Fukushima could affect our seafood for “many generations” and ultimately kill more than a million people…

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.

#25 The Japanese government has estimated that approximately 300 tons of highly radioactive water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility every single day.

#26 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.

#27 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.

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

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

#30 It has been estimated 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.

#31 The immense amount of radioactive material being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issue the following warning…

“Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.”

#32 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.  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.

#33 Outdoor radiation levels at Fukushima recently hit a new all-time high.

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

#35 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.”

#36 There are very alarming reports that new “unexplained plumes of radioactive steam” are rising at Fukushima.  Japanese officials are not able to get inside and see what is causing these plumes.  Some are speculating that the crisis at Fukushima just got a whole lot worse.  The following is from a recent Ecologist article…

Unexplained plumes of radioactive steam have been rising from Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3, Could a major meltdown be on the way?

Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3 exploded on 13th March 2011 as a result of a hydrogen buildup, breaching the building’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.  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.  But the mainstream media continues to insist that everything is going to be just fine.  That is one of the reasons why I wrote my new novel.  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.  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.  But you won’t hear about this from the mainstream media.  Their story is that “everything is okay” and they are sticking to it.

    There is another facet to this that seems to have been largely ignored. Radiation and its continued release will cause massive problems. However, I have not seen any articles that consider the issue of dangerous chemicals. When the waves hit they destroyed hundreds and hundreds of farms, industrial operations, petrol and chemical storage facilities along the Japanese coast. This would have liberated hundreds of tons of chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, multiple organic chemical compounds – many which are extremely carcinogenic. These were all mixed together and drained back out into the Ocean. The notion that hundreds of thousands of tons of chemicals will be suddenly diluted is hard to believe if we look at the history of small chemical spills.

    • Dave

      Correct, combine the radioactive contamination with chemical and other toxic releases drained back into the oceans biosphere or system, add millions of tons of garbage not just from Fukishima but daily solids pollution in the form of plastics, and ropes, fishing nets and discarded trash from any number of sources including ships, land fill dumped off barges, discharges ballast tanks contaminated with fuel, oil or paint toxins. Outflow raw sewerage discharges, by products from desalination plants and other sources like river and stream run offs carrying fertilisers and any and all dumped shit we use the waterways for. Leeching of poisoned groundwater below land fill sites, illegal dumping by waste management companies, and you start to get an idea of just how we have doomed the very thing we rely on to survive, the ocean. Dead and dying oceans reflect our fate.

  • Barn Cat

    It’s all crap. Prove that eagles in UTAH are dying from radiation.

  • chrisonhismac

    My fav line of the article – “That is one of the reasons why I wrote my new novel”. Sell sell sell.

    • Roman Lorenan

      I know right, how dare he write a book and try and make some money informing people about what’s going on in the world. He should be like the rest of the sheep-slaves and get a minimum wage job on a retail store and SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP

    It will be like in The Road. The whole planet is dying. People will hunt in packs and eat each other because there will be nothing else to eat.

  • Amanda Tipple

    will there be any where safe to go?

    This is utter nonsense. The majority of which is nothing more than a bunch of scaremongering to sell books. Although, it’s important to be concerned about the effects of such a disaster around us. It’s also important not to spread lies and rumours based on misinformation. This article is a pile of misinformation based on logical fallacies, associating radiation cause to events that have nothing to do with radiation.

    I recommend further research before you believe the majority of this. http://skeptoid.com/blog/2013/10/28/more-fukushima-scaremongering-debunked/

    NBC is owned by GE, the same company that manufactured the Fuklushima nuclear plant.

    • Woodhouse

      NBC is owned by Comcast.

  • PithHelmut

    Oh does that include Chernobyl? We’re not looking it up, cite your sources, you’re the one making the claim..

  • JDooz

    This is why the transition to cyborgs, to artificial intelligence is developing so rapidly. Now does one see the plan coming more clearly? Phase out the humans by gradually poisoning them to death, the boiling frog way.

    Point #2 of your article. That is not what the infographic says. The infographic says the radioisotope levels from Fukushima were 10,000 to 100,000 times higher than what was measured off Japan from nuclear weapons testing in the 1960s. Well duh. The testing in the Pacific was over 2000 miles away from Japan! Nuclear weapons testing dumped 310 PBq of Cs-137 into the Pacific; Fukushima dumped 10 PBq. Nuclear weapons testing dumped 31 times more Cs-137 than Fukushima.

    Some of the “commenters” here are sounding pretty fatalistic as if what is happening is a “natural” phenomenon.

    It is NOT, and is being created by a, relatively- speaking, very few people who believe because of their STOLEN ( By fraud, War and outright THEFT) WEALTH, that they are superior to most of Humanity and have decided the most efficient way to obtain control and RULE this planet is to ELIMINATE most of us.

    Their WEAKNESSES in the whole theory is, FIRSTLY, their INABILITY to CREATE anything. They simply STEAL what they want and need and plan on ROBOTS to do all the creating in the near future..They depend on US, at the moment, to do the CREATING, including the Robots…

    They and many of you,apparently believe that ROBOTS will be able to IMAGINE and CREATE. NO they will not because they will NEVER have CONSCIOUSNESS, which is part of our DNA.

    Any Robots which are to have DNA possessing consciousness will have to be living breathing creatures, NOT machines, like us…so that would be like destroying us only to create us again.Are they that stupid. If so, one could call that their SECOND weakness.

    THIRDLY, and lastly, their UNDERESTIMATION of the IMAGINATION and Creativity of the Individual is the DOWNFALL weakness, they have. At his PRESENT time there are millions of people opposing actively and/or planning to oppose, those CRIMINALS, some in North America ( Canada, U.S. and Mexico) and there are COUNTRIES which oppose them and planning their downfall.

    Don’t get me wrong.They will win in the SHORT RUN and Billions are going to die from Wars,Chemical Poisoning of our Food,Water ,Air and Land, (GMO, Pesticides,Chem Trails Geo-Engineering etc.), all, by them, their Stooges and Minions. As a consequence of the Misery, Pain and Suffering the WARRIORS among us will eventually rise up and destroy them,hopefully forever.

    The BAD NEWS is that what I call the Short Run could be several hundreds of years.After All even the Roman Empire, without our technology, lasted over 400 years.

    In the mean time you can do what I am doing and have done: Purchase land in AREAS or other Countries where the extremes of this coming REAL holocaust will not reach and Governments are not so evil and ,in some cases, the people are much more resistant to authoritarianism. I chose Uganda in Africa, Northern Canada and Paraguay South America.

    Do your own SEARCH for ; “acreage, farm land, Property” in either or both of “Timmins, Ontario,Canada ” or “Paraguay, South America”.

    I don’t recommend an online search for Uganda Africa because you will find nothing .You have to visit that country and look around.that is what i did for that country.
    For Canada and Paraguay I was able to use the online approach. Good Luck and good hunting

      You are cuckoo for cocoa puffs, & arguing with you would be like arguing with a lamp. All of the skeptics, not fatalists you dolt, have submitted articles with facts, not opinions, the data is relevant to the claims that are being made, & they are successfully refuting them, & in my opinion as someone who has two engineering degrees from UC Berkeley, I’d say this article is bogus because the author is trying to sell a book, hence the cheap fearmongering, & overload of information of anything he could find to prove his case, which I guess, includes the kitchen sink because the size of the data he’s citing gives it away that he’s pushing a book.
      But the robots are coming for you dude, especially you. We’re going to use your body to CREATE Robots that will go into hibernation, then look around in 10 years, see everything is still the same, then build a time machine to go back & laugh at you when you were still alive, for being such a dumbass. The ROBOTS, made of YOU, will be laughing at YOU.
