"'Contamination levels skyrocket at Fukushima plant, up nearly 2,000%'"
RADIOACTIVE MIX HEADED DIRECTLY TOWARD AMERICA'S WEST COAST.
RADIOACTIVITY LEVELS WILL BE CONCENTRATED ONCE THE DEBRIS AND PARTICULATES BEGIN TO WASH ASHORE.
MOST OF THE FACTS ABOUT OUR OCEAN FOOD CHAIN BEING CONTAMINATED WERE WELL KNOWN OVER A YEAR AGO.
LEVELS STEADILY INCREASE WITH EACH PASSING DAY.
THE CONTAMINATION, THE TOXIC RADIATION LEVELS ENTERING THE PACIFIC FROM FUKUSHIMA'S MASSIVE LEAKS EVERY DAY ARE ALL GATHERING TO WASH ASHORE IN THE U.S. AND YET FEW ARE SOUNDING THE ALARM AND OUR OWN GOVERNMENT IS DOWNPLAYING OR IGNORING THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS NEW ONSLAUGHT!
"Fukushima Radiation Contaminating Tuna, Salmon and Herring On the West Coast of North America"
AND EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WHO INGESTS THOSE FISH!
More than a year ago, 15 out of 15 bluefin tuna tested in California waters were contaminated with radioactive cesium from Fukushima.
Fukushima Radiation found in Tuna caught near San Diego only 5 months after Fukushima disaster.
The results “are unequivocal. Fukushima was the source,” said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Previously, smaller fish and plankton were found with elevated levels of radiation ...
FOOD FISH, SEAWEEDS, MARINE LIFE, ALL SHOW ESCALATED LEVELS OF RADIOACTIVE CESIUM AND IODINE.
Alaska’s Juneau Empire newspaper writes:
"'We are concerned this hazardous material is hitching a ride on marine life and making its way to Alaska.
Currents of the world’s oceans are complex. But, generally speaking, two surface currents — one from the south, called the Kuroshio, and one from the north, called the Oyashio — meet just off the coast of Japan at about 40 degrees north latitude. The currents merge to form the North Pacific current and surge eastward. Fukushima lies at 37 degrees north latitude. Thousands of miles later, the currents hit an upwelling just off the western coast of the United States and split. One, the Alaska current, turns north up the coast toward British Columbia and Southeast Alaska. The other, the California current, turns south and heads down the western seaboard of the U.S.
The migration patterns of Pacific salmon should also be taken into consideration. In a nutshell, our salmon ride the Alaska current and follow its curve past Sitka, Yakutat, Kodiak and the Aleutian Islands. Most often, it’s the chinook, coho and sockeye salmon migration patterns that range farthest. Chum and pink salmon seem to stay closer to home. Regardless of how far out each salmon species ventures into the Pacific, each fish hitches a ride back to its home rivers and spawning grounds on the North Pacific current, the same one pulling the nuclear waste eastward..We are concerned our Alaska salmon are being slowly tainted with nuclear waste. We are worried about the impact this waste could have on our resources, and especially the people who consume them.'"
Another example – pacific herring – is even more dramatic. Pacific herring is wide-ranging fish, spanning all the way from Japan to Southern California:
Every single pacific herring examined by a biologist in Canada was found to be hemorrhaging blood.
There have been many other reports of mysterious sickness among West Coast North American sealife. For example, sea lions’ main food is herring:
Sea lions will eat a lot of different prey items: octopus, squid, small sharks. But their bread and butter is herring ….Associated Press reports:
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.”
The Vancouver Sun reported in January, 2012 that 94 per cent of the anchovies and 92 per cent of the sardines sold by the Japanese to Canada contained radioactive cesium. Some of the fish were caught in Japanese coastal waters; but others were caught many hundreds of miles away in the open ocean.Radiation from Fukushima was directly deposited into the kelp off the Western coast of North America … especially in Southern California.
Fish that eat the kelp have also gotten exposed to the radiation … as have the animals that eat those fish.
The largest concentration was about 250 times higher than levels found in kelp before the accident.
"Basically, we saw it in all the California kelp blades we sampled," said Steven Manley, a CSU Long Beach biology professor who specializes in kelp.
I KNOW YOU'VE HEARD THAT THE LEVELS OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL SWIRLING IN THE PACIFIC IS "NOT A HEALTH ISSUE", BUT THAT'S A LIE!
"Even Miniscule Amounts of Radiation Can Be Dangerous"
A major 2012 scientific study proves that low-level radiation can cause huge health problems. Science Daily reports:
Even the very lowest levels of radiation are harmful to life, scientists have concluded in the Cambridge Philosophical Society’s journal Biological Reviews. Reporting the results of a wide-ranging analysis of 46 peer-reviewed studies published over the past 40 years, researchers from the University of South Carolina and the University of Paris-Sud found that variation in low-level, natural background radiation was found to have small, but highly statistically significant, negative effects on DNA as well as several measures of health.

BECAUSE THERE WERE HYDROGEN EXPLOSIONS AT FUKUSHIMA, WE WILL HAVE VERY SMALL CONTAMINATED PARTICULATES STACKING UP AGAINST OUR SHORES WITH THE LARGER DEBRIS ALREADY IN CIRCULATION.
AS THESE TRAVEL TOWARD US ACCUMULATING, THE WATER AND ANY OTHER MATERIAL OR MARINE LIFE IN IT ALSO BECOMES HIGHLY CONTAMINATED. NATURALLY WHEREVER THIS 'RADIOACTIVE SOUP' ACCUMULATES AGAINST OUR LAND MASS, THE HIGHER OUR RADIATION LEVELS WILL BECOME.

Figure 4 gives the examples of the distribution of the impact strength of Cesium-137 at year 1.5 (panel (a)), year 3.5 (panel (b)), and year 4 (panel (c))
<<Since the major transport mechanism of nuclear pollutants for the west coast of America is the Kuroshio-extension currents, after four years [from the time of the first "major" leaks/contamination], the impact strength of Cesium-137 in the west coast area of America is as high as 4%.
(THAT IS TO SAY THAT WE CAN EXPECT THIS BY 2015, OR EARLIER.)
The half life of cesium-137 is so long that it produces more damage to human[s] as time goes by. The University of Hawaii’s International Pacific Research Center also created a graphic showing the projected dispersion of debris from Japan.

On March 30, 2011, the Japan Central News Agency reported the monitored radioactive pollutions were 4000 times higher than the standard level. Whether or not these nuclear pollutants will be transported to the Pacific-neighboring countries through oceanic circulations becomes a world-wide concern.
Earlier this month, a study published in Science China warned that radiation leaking from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is becoming more concentrated as it crosses the Pacific Ocean, rather than dispersing, and that it is making a beeline for the west coast of the United States. The study, coupled with recent disclosures by Tokyo Electric Power Company, or Tepco, that radiation-contaminated water continues to leak into the ocean, has rekindled public concerns about health dangers.>>
Record radiation readings near Fukushima contaminated water tanks
Contamination levels skyrocket at Fukushima plant, up nearly 2,000%
Sept 4, 2013
Radiation hotspots have spread to three holding areas for hundreds of hastily built tanks storing water contaminated by being flushed over three reactors that melted down at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March 2011.
The rising radiation levels and leaks at the plant have prompted international alarm, and the Japanese government said on Tuesday it would step in with almost $500 million of funding to fix the growing levels of contaminated water at the plant.
Readings just above the ground near a set of tanks at the plant showed radiation as high as 2,200 millisieverts (mSv), the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) said on Wednesday. The previous high in areas holding the tanks was the 1,800 mSv recorded on Saturday.
Both levels would be enough to kill an unprotected person within hours.
Japan's biggest utility has been criticized for a series of mishaps including its admission, after repeated denials, that contaminated water was flowing into the Pacific from another area of the plant. That was followed by the leaks from above-ground tanks.
The latest radiation readings at the plant were taken on Tuesday and were not related to a 6.9 magnitude earthquake off southern Japan earlier on Wednesday.
SO WHAT WOULD "RELATE" TO THE TANKS SPIKING?
ANOTHER 7.0 QUAKE RIGHT ON TOP OF THEM?
WHAT WOULD A 5.0 DO TO THOSE SHODDY TANKS?
TO THE TOPPLING BUILDINGS?
THEY'VE ALSO HAD TWO TROPICAL STORMS BLOW THROUGH THE REGION.
I GUESS THAT DOESN'T "RELATE" EITHER, ALL THAT RAIN RUN-OFF?
AFTER 4 HYDROGEN EXPLOSIONS THERE, DO WE IMAGINE ALL IS WELL?
WHEN WILL ANYONE COME CLEAN ABOUT THIS?
TEPCO WAS CAUGHT USING RADIATION MONITORING EQUIPMENT THAT WOULD ONLY MEASURE UP TO 100 MILLISIEVERTS, SO THE REAL READINGS WERE INTENTIONALLY KEPT LOW, VERY LOW.
WORKERS ARE NOW USING MONITORS THAT CAN MEASURE UP TO 10,000 MILLISIEVERTS...FINALLY, AFTER 2 1/2 YEARS!
Fukushima plant worker says leaks were feared when water tanks constructed.
SEPT. 2, 2013
FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) -- The water storage tanks at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant were built hastily and it was feared at the time that toxic water could leak from them, a male utility worker involved in their construction told Kyodo News recently.
"We were required to build the tanks in succession," the male worker said, recalling his experience of constructing the group of tanks in the "H4" area two years ago. "We gave priority to making the tanks, rather than quality control. There were fears that toxic water may leak."
With contaminated water accumulating at the plant that suffered a triple meltdown, workers constructed one 1,000-ton tank every three days, he said.
The procurement of materials was not managed well, with necessary materials sometimes not delivered on time.
The tank confirmed to have leaked was built in June 2011, around three months after the plant was damaged by a huge earthquake and tsunami, but it was dismantled after sinking into the ground and later reassembled in the H4 area, he said.
Given that the life span of the tanks is only around 5 years, he said, "All of the tanks are makeshift. More toxic water may leak as they deteriorate."
There are around 350 such tanks at the plant.>>
IF THE WORKERS KNEW WHAT ABOUT THE TOP BRASS OVER THERE?
DIDN'T THEY KNOW?
WHY TRUST SHODDY TANKS?
THEY HAVE TO KNOW THEY'RE PLAYING DICE WITH THE ENTIRE WORLD AT STAKE RIGHT?
THE BIGGEST WHY IS WHY AREN'T ALL THE NATIONS DEMANDING THIS CHANGE HANDS, FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN ACTUALLY STOP THIS INSANITY?
SECOND BIGGEST WHY IS WHY ISN'T JAPAN EVACUATING MORE PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THEIR CHILDREN?
[PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THIS MATERIAL WAS WRITTEN IN 2011, BEFORE TEPCO CAME CLEAN THAT THEY'D BEEN LYING ABOUT HOW MUCH CONTAMINATION WAS LEAKING INTO THE OCEAN AND AIR!
NOW WE SEE THAT LEVELS ARE 2000% TO 4000% HIGHER THAN WE WERE BEING TOLD!] Top scientists from many other nations, NOT JUST CHINA, in a meta-analysis of studies of locations around the globe, pooling across multiple studies, in multiple areas, and in a rigorous statistical manner provides a tool to really get at these questions about low-level radiation, examining more than 5,000 papers involving natural background radiation that were narrowed to 46 for quantitative comparison. The selected studies all examined both a control group and a more highly irradiated population and quantified the size of the radiation levels for each. Each paper also reported test statistics that allowed direct comparison between the studies.
The organisms studied included plants and animals, but had a large preponderance of human subjects. Each study examined one or more possible effects of radiation, such as DNA damage measured in the lab, prevalence of a disease such as Down’s Syndrome, or the sex ratio produced in offspring. For each effect, a statistical algorithm was used to generate a single value, the effect size, which could be compared across all the studies.
The scientists reported significant negative effects in a range of categories, including immunology, physiology, mutation and disease occurrence. The frequency of negative effects was beyond that of random chance.
“It also provides evidence that there is no threshold below which there are no effects of radiation,” he added. “A theory that has been batted around a lot over the last couple of decades is the idea that is there a threshold of exposure below which there are no negative consequences. These data provide fairly strong evidence that there is no threshold — radiation effects are measurable as far down as you can go, given the statistical power you have at hand.”
Physicians for Social Responsibility notes:
According to the National Academy of Sciences, there are no safe doses of radiation. Decades of research show clearly that any dose of radiation increases an individual’s risk for the development of cancer.
“There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources. Period,” said Jeff Patterson, DO, immediate past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility. “Exposure to radionuclides, such as iodine-131 and cesium-137, increases the incidence of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to minimize the radionuclide content in food and water.”
“Consuming food containing radionuclides is particularly dangerous. If an individual ingests or inhales a radioactive particle, it continues to irradiate the body as long as it remains radioactive and stays in the body,”said Alan H. Lockwood, MD, a member of the Board of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
“Children are much more susceptible to the effects of radiation, and stand a much greater chance of developing cancer than adults,” said Dr. Andrew Kanter, president-elect of PSR’s Board.
The National Research Council’s Committee to Assess the Scientific Information for the Radiation Exposure Screening and Education Program explains:
Radioactivity generates radiation by emitting particles. Radioactive materials outside the the body are called external emitters, and radioactive materials located within the body are called internal emitters.Internal emitters are much more dangerous than external emitters. Specifically, one is only exposed to radiation as long as he or she is near the external emitter.
For example, when you get an x-ray, an external emitter is turned on for an instant, and then switched back off.
But internal emitters steadily and continuously emit radiation for as long as the particle remains radioactive, or until the person dies – whichever occurs first. As such, they are much more dangerous.
As the head of a Tokyo-area medical clinic – Dr. Junro Fuse, Internist and head of Kosugi Medical Clinic – said:
Risk from internal exposure is 200-600 times greater than risk from external exposure.The cesium which was scattered all over the place by above-ground nuclear tests and the Chernobyl and Fukushima accidents has a much longer half life, and can easily contaminate food and water supplies. As the New York Times notes:
Over the long term, the big threat to human health is cesium-137, which has a half-life of 30 years.
At that rate of disintegration, John Emsley wrote in “Nature’s Building Blocks” (Oxford, 2001),
“it takes over 200 years to reduce it to 1 percent of its former level.”
PLEASE LET THAT REALLY SINK IN...
SO, WHEN WE EAT FOODS CONTAMINATED BY RADIATION, WE WILL SEE RESULTS SOONER THAN BY EXTERNAL EXPOSURE.
AND IS THE U.S. CURRENTLY TESTING OUR FOOD SUPPLY, EVEN FROM THE PACIFIC OCEAN?
Ira Helfand, MD, a member of the Board of Physicians for Social Responsibility states, “But it is not true to say that it is "safe" to release this much radiation; some people will get cancer and die as a result.”
John LaForge writes:
The National Council on Radiation Protection says, “… every increment of radiation exposure produces an incremental increase in the risk of cancer.” The Environmental Protection Agency says, “… any exposure to radiation poses some risk, i.e. there is no level below which we can say an exposure poses no risk.” The Department of Energy says about “low levels of radiation” that “… the major effect is a very slight increase in cancer risk.” The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says, “any amount of radiation may pose some risk for causing cancer … any increase in dose, no matter how small, results in an incremental increase in risk.” The National Academy of Sciences, in its “Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation VII,” says, “… it is unlikely that a threshold exists for the induction of cancers ….”Even Japan Times reports:
Long story short, “One can no longer speak of a ‘safe’ dose level,” as Dr. Ian Fairlie and Dr. Marvin Resnikoff said in their report “No dose too low,” in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
Protracted exposure to low-level radiation is associated with a significant increase in the risk of leukemia, according to a long-term study published Thursday in a U.S. research journal.
The study released in the monthly Environmental Health Perspectives was based on a 20-year survey of around 110,000 workers who engaged in cleanup work related to the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster in 1986.
Scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, the U.S. National Cancer Institute and the National Research Center for Radiation Medicine in Ukraine were among those who participated in the research.
Indeed, the overwhelming consensus among radiation experts is that repeated exposure to low doses of radiation can cause cancer, genetic mutations, heart disease, stroke and other serious illness (and see this.)
The top U.S. government radiation experts – like Karl Morgan, John Goffman and Arthur Tamplin – and scientific luminaries such as Ernest Sternglass and Alice Stewart, concluded that low level radiation can cause serious health effects.
A military briefing written by the U.S. Army for commanders in Iraq states:
Hazards from low level radiation are long-term, not acute effects… Every exposure increases risk of cancer.THEY KNOW, OUR "NUCLEAR EXPERTS" AND OUR "LEADERS" HERE IN AMERICA, THEY'VE KNOWN FOR DECADES, SO WHY ISN'T OUR GOVERNMENT BROADCASTING THESE WARNINGS TO ALL OF US IN THE PATH OF THIS ONCOMING THREAT?
(NOTE:Military briefings for commanders often contain less propaganda than literature aimed at civilians, as the commanders have to know the basic facts to be able to assess risk to their soldiers.)
THIS IS FOUND ON A GOVERNMENT WEBSITE!
Human Health Effects:Toxicity Summary:
Evaluation. There is sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of X-radiation and gamma-radiation. There is sufficient evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of X-radiation and gamma-radiation. Overall evaluation. X-radiation and gamma-radiation are carcinogenic to humans (Group 1).
<<Human Toxicity Excerpts:
/SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS/ /ACUTE RADIATION SYNDROME/ Fifty persons involved in the cesium-137 accident in Goiania showed symptoms of whole-body and local acute irradiation and also external or internal contamination mainly due to ingestion or absorption of cesium-137. Fourteen of the 50 developed severe bone marrow depression characterized by neutropenia and thrombocytopenia. Eight of these 14 received GM-CSF intravenously. None were submitted to bone marrow transplantation. Four of the 14 died due to hemorrhage and infection. For those with significant internal contamination evaluated by in-vitro and in-vivo assays, Prussian Blue was administered with doses ranging from 1.5 to 10 g/day. Besides Prussian Blue, other measures were taken to increase decorporation of cesium-137, including administration of diuretics, water overload, and ergometric exercises. From 50 to 100 persons are being followed in a medical protocol.>>
BUT NO "PUBLIC SERVICE" WARNINGS NOR 'ADS' TO HELP AMERICAN CITIZENS DEAL WITH THIS CRISIS?
WHY SO QUIET?
One problem in the radiation field is that little of the data on hand addresses the problem of protracted exposure. Most of the health data used to estimate the health effects of radiation exposure comes from survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings of 1945. That was mostly a one-time exposure.

Most “Background Radiation” Didn’t Exist Before Nuclear Weapons Testing and Nuclear Reactors
Caesium-137 is unique in that it is totally anthropogenic. Unlike most other radioisotopes, caesium-137 is not produced from its non-radioactive isotope, but from uranium. It did not occur in nature before nuclear weapons testing began.
By observing the characteristic gamma rays emitted by this isotope, it
is possible to determine whether the contents of a given sealed
container were made before or after the advent of atomic bomb
explosions. This procedure has been used by researchers to check the
authenticity of certain rare wines, most notably the purported
Nuclear apologists pretend that we get a higher exposure from
background radiation (when we fly, for example) or x-rays then we get
from nuclear accidents.In fact, there was exactly zero background radioactive cesium or iodine before above-ground nuclear testing and nuclear accidents started.
As the 'EPA' ITSELF notes:
Cesium-133 is the only naturally occurring isotope and is non-radioactive; all other isotopes, including cesium-137, are produced by human activity.Similarly, iodine-131 is not a naturally occurring isotope. As the Encyclopedia Britannica notes:
The only naturally occurring isotope of iodine is stable iodine-127. An exceptionally useful radioactive isotope is iodine-131…(Fukushima has spewed much more radioactive cesium and iodine than Chernobyl. The amount of radioactive cesium INITIALLY released by Fukushima was some 20-30 times higher than first admitted. Japanese experts say that Fukushima is currently releasing up to 93 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium into the ocean each day. And the cesium levels hitting the west coast of North America will keep increasing for several years. Fukushima is spewing more and more radiation into the environment, and the amount of radioactive fuel at Fukushima dwarfs Chernobyl.)

<<Already, one in five houses in South Australia has rooftop solar PV, and a new AEMO document predicts this could treble by 2022. With wind already supplying 27% of power, and new wind farms coming on, the state will likely have 50% of wind and solar within 10 years.>>
Baseload generators are used less often and wind and solar and reduced demand have their impact on the generation mix.

As the Cold War waged on, it ramped up production, supplying plutonium for most of America's 60,000 nuclear weapons. Although decommissioned, it still holds two thirds of the volume of the country’s high-level radioactive waste — about 53 million gallons of liquid waste, 25 million cubic feet of solid waste and 200 square miles of contaminated groundwater underneath the area, making it the most contaminated site in the US.
