FINALLY, PEOPLE ARE TAKING FUKUSHIMA'S CONTINUAL LEAK SERIOUSLY.
MANY ALONG THE WEST COAST OF THE USA HAVE ALREADY SEEN THE RADIATION SPIKES AND FOOD/AIR/WATER/SOIL/HUMAN CONTAMINATION FOR THEMSELVES, BUT NOW THEY'RE DEMANDING ATTENTION FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Mendocino County Board of Supervisors action minutes, Oct. 22, 2013: [...] Board Action: Upon motion by Supervisor McCowen, seconded by Supervisor Pinches, and carried unanimously; IT IS ORDERED that Consent Calendar items 4(a – t) are approved/rejected as follows: [...] Approval of Letter to President Obama Calling for International Assistance to Address the Continuing Fukushima Crisis – [Sponsors:] Supervisors McCowen and Gjerde — Approved
Fukushima Crisis – [Sponsors:] Supervisors McCowen and Gjerde — Approved
Draft of Mendocino County’s Letter to President Obama: Deteriorating conditions at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear complex clearly constitute an international crisis of epic proportions that requires the highest level of international scientific and technological assistance in an effort to minimize the continuing damage to international health and safety. [...] We therefore call upon you to issue an Executive Order directing all appropriate federal agencies to assist in leading an international effort to avert what appears to be a looming catastrophe of unprecedented dimensions. [...] the reactor cores from units 1, 2, and 3 have melted down and are widely believed to have penetrated the floor of the reactor buildings. [...] Groundwater also flows freely through the site resulting in the uncontrolled discharge of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. [...] In addition to the requested Executive Order, we also call upon you to assure that the federal government is conducting all appropriate monitoring and testing to assess the level and impacts of radioactive contamination to west coast communities and the near shore marine environment.

Just a few miles to the south, Marin County officials have also taken action: TV: Officials near San Francisco to monitor Fukushima plume, concerns for environment and food supply -- Supervisor: The risks to Californians are concerning -- Commissioner: We can't rely on Japan or Tepco -- Will waves of cesium and strontium pollute coast? (VIDEO)
As did the city of Berkeley, California: Watch: Berkeley unanimously passes Fukushima resolution -- Officials: "Very serious... I'm quite sobered by it"; "I’m glad we're taking a stand"; State should get involved; Affects entire coast, we all need to get together and take action; "Work of activists... is paying off with public support" (VIDEO)
And the city of Fairfax, California: California town passes Fukushima resolution: "Urgent international rescue" needed at site -- "Poses health and safety concerns to America's West Coast" -- "Much greater contamination is likely"
MIT Center for International Studies — Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Oct 24, 2013 (at 31:30 in): This is a timeline from early on to about 1 year later. This is what we published using Tepco’s data to point out, a couple of features here, you see it going up — this is 50 million Bq/m³. I studied Chernobyl, we’d never seen things above 1,000 Bq/m³ in the ocean. This is why we called it an unprecedented accident. When the health physics people started looking at this they said yeah this of concern. When you’re up here, you might have mortality effects directly on organisms living in the ocean.
WHY USE TEPCO DATA? TEPCO HAS LIED SINCE DAY 1.
JUST CALL IT WHAT IT IS.
IT IS A VERY POSSIBLE WORLDWIDE LIFE-ENDING EVENT!
“Radionuclides from Fukushima due to hit West Coast any day now” — Senior Scientist: “Really bizarre” U.S. gov’t not testing for it — Concerned officials contacting him about threat November 24, 2013
ONE READER COMMENTED
Even though this could be a start to get the snowball rolling downhill, It will not matter what these folks do. Nothing will be done to make this issue any more public than it already is by the govt. They would have to admit to incompetence, malfeasance, and total dereliction of all the govt agencies for the last three years.
Of course, it is no secret they all have been missing in action for three yeas and counting now anyways. One has to wonder just how much US Tax money is wasted paying these no-good-for-nothings to do nothing for the American People.>>
AND ANOTHER READER OBSERVED;
<<NOT LOCALIZED TO WEST COAST . . .
Nuclear radiation is flowing in the jet stream through all of North America.
Constantly, non-stop, 24/7.
AND A VERY ASTUTE READER ASKED THE QUESTION WE ALL SHOULD BE ASKING:
<<If they want to tell us what exactly is going on, it is only a matter of money and force. If you have more than the rottenchildkiller banksters who own them all, and can out bid their overall population elimination agenda, you would know the real numbers and how bad this is. Got a few trillion laying around, and the US army to do your bidding? Don't forget the major lying dying news media. You can not hype the truth, unless you pay them off too. A real serious question that all these talking glove puppets need to be asked is, IS IT TOO LATE TO FIX THIS potential Extinction Level Event? Yes, or No mr congress >>
IS IT SIMPLY TOO LATE?
SOME TALK ABOUT THE WATER, THE WATER, AN HOW THE OCEAN WILL DILUTE THE DANGER.
NO, NO IT WON'T.
IT WILL JUST KEEP COMING ON EVERY TIDE.
ALASKA HAS ALSO BEEN AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE HARD-HIT:
Alaska: 28% of polar bears with skin lesions & hair loss,
thyroids tested by gov’t… like symptoms in seals & walrus —
Surprisingly high mortality of musk ox, weak immune system suspected —
High rate of embryo deaths & bad eggs for geese.
AND THE AIR....OUR AIR IS JUST AS POISONOUS OR MAYBE MORE SO THAN THE OCEAN. THE RAIN THAT FALLS ON ALL OF US, THE SNOW, ALL THAT FALLS ON US AND ON OUR CROPS, OUR FOOD ANIMALS, INTO OUR FRESH WATER SUPPLIES.
DOESN'T ANYONE IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WANT TO MAN-UP AND TELL THE WORLD THE TRUTH?
DO WE HAVE TO BE LIKE JAPANESE OFFICIALS AND LIE ABOUT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS THING?
.DOES "AVOIDING MASS PANIC" MAKE IT OKAY TO LET US ALL DIE THINKING THINGS ARE JUST FINE?
CALIFORNIA IS DEMANDING TESTING.
WE ALL SHOULD DEMAND TESTING, AND WE SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT IT'S DONE BY SOMEONE WHO ISN'T OWNED BY OUR GOVERNMENT!
AMERICANS CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH...BUT WE CAN'T HANDLE GENOCIDE.
