It’s been almost six years since the Daiichi nuclear disaster at Fukushima. On that fateful day, March 11, 2011, horror was unleashed upon not only the poor souls in the immediate and surrounding area, but for the Pacific Ocean and mankind.
I’ve done several columns on it, the last one: Unimaginable Carnage From Fukushima Killing Pacific Ocean. As expected my email box dumped a few dozen opinions that appear to be a joint effort all saying the same thing: It’s a stupid conspiracy, the government would tell us if there is a problem, blah, blah, blah.
Ah, yes, the government that lies every time one of their mouthpieces opens the pie hole in his/her face. And the tightly controlled media who have been peddling Soviet-style lies and propaganda longer than I’ve been alive. Think promoting career criminal, Hillary Clinton, and her fairy tale about a video causing the slaughter at Benghazi and when she allegedly came under sniper fire in Bosnia and had to run for her life. A huge whopper. That media that now owns the latest ‘fake news’ blow up they’re trying to pin on the truth media. That would be web sites like Newswithviews and others.
On this issue, FOX has been little better covering the on-going destruction from Fukushima with only the initial ‘when it bleeds it leads’ and eventually went away. All done, move on, nothing to see here – or is there?
The other day I read a short piece about a sea lion jumping into a boat looking for fish. Some might think it’s cute but it’s heart breaking because sea lions and other ocean creatures in the Pacific Ocean have been starving to death the past few years. I thoroughly cover this in my book, Taking Politics Out of Solutions. The chapter on Fukushima is frightening and heartbreaking yet most Americans have no clue.
What caught my eye in the story was reference to the huge lump on the top of the sea lion’s head. It is clearly a deformity.
Here are a few examples the fake media hasn’t bothered to cover. We know this is a lie that’s been protected for years. Now it’s reached the point where some exposure is deemed necessary.
Fukushima radiation has reached U.S. shores, Dec. 9, 2016
“Woods Hole chemical oceanographer Ken Buesseler runs a crowd-funded, citizen science seawater sampling project that has tracked the radiation plume as it slowly makes its way across the Pacific Ocean.
“The Oregon samples, marking the first time cesium-134 has been detected on U.S. shores, were taken in January and February of 2016 and later analyzed. They each measured 0.3 becquerels per cubic meter of cesium-134. Buesseler’s team previously had found the isotope in a sample of seawater taken from a dock on Vancouver Island, B.C., marking its landfall in North America.
“Meanwhile, in Canada, Cullen leads the InFORM project to assess radiological risks to that country’s oceans following the nuclear disaster. It is a partnership of a dozen academic, government and non-profit organizations, including Woods Hole. Last month, the group reported that a single sockeye salmon, sampled from Okanagan Lake in the summer of 2015, had tested positive for cesium-134.”
Yep. All is well. Levels too low to be of concern for humans. The highly toxic Cesium 134 has now been found in Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach, Oregon is Fukushima.
Fukushima Five Years Later: “The Fuel Rods Melted Through Containment And Nobody Knows Where They Are Now”
“Today, Japan marks the fifth anniversary of the tragic and catastrophic meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami hit the northeast coast of Japan, killing 20,000 people. Another 160,000 then fled the radiation in Fukushima. It was the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, and according to some it would be far worse, if the Japanese government did not cover up the true severity of the devastation.
“At least 100,000 people from the region have not yet returned to their homes. A full cleanup of the site is expected to take at least 40 years.” Do Americans even realize how dangerous that is?

Radiation so High at Fukushima, Tepco’s Robots can’t Survive. In that piece it discusses a future ‘ice wall’ to be built by Tepco to stop the leaking of contaminated water into the ocean. As expected:
Typhoons cause failure of ‘ice wall’ around Fukushima reactors — Highly radioactive water flowing into ocean — Structure “critically affected” — Fears over multiple sections of barrier that have thawed — Expert: “The plan to block groundwater is failing” (VIDEO) – September 6th, 2016
Fukushima Update -‘The largest mass die offs of Sea Life ever recorded” now underway on West Coast’ – Sea lions so hungry they’re eating rocks. The BS called ‘climate change’ is being blamed. What better way to keep bleeding we the people dry to fund all the ‘climate change’ programs propped up by the U.S. government courtesy of the DO-NOTHING Republicans over the years. Tens and tens of billions of BORROWED dollars with the interest slapped on our backs to support a monster lie.
Fukushima Nuclear Waste Annihilates Pacific Ecosystem, May 24, 2016
“The federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has grossly abused its science-funding role to promote climate change as the sole culprit threatening the global mega-ecosystem. Ethically compromised research centers have gone along with the pro-corporate deception, including the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI), Scripps at La Jolla and the numerous universities under their censorial influence. With thousands of marine species and countless human lives at stake, the cover-up of radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean and the atmosphere over the Northern Hemisphere is shaping up as the most disgraceful chapter in the annals of scientific fraud.
“A fair standard of truthfulness, based on observations along the shoreline, along with deep-sea data if ever such become available, will show that the driving force behind this mass death of crustaceans is a major disruption of the Pacific marine ecosystem resulting from nuclear-dumping from Fukushima’s melted-down reactors since 2011, as well as radioactive leaks from San Onofre. The poisoning by radionucleotides of pelagic red crabs, which have a vital role in the food chain, has dire implications for great whales and other sea mammals as well as sea turtles, fish and invertebrates, including a wide range of seafood consumed by humans.”

Same link: Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen on CCTV, Apr 5, 2016: “We’re looking at newspaper coverage from the last couple of weeks and it’s clear that the plant continues to hemorrhage.”
Fairewinds Japan Speaking Tour Series No. 1, Feb 12, 2016:
“Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen: [T]he Fukushima power plants… continues to bleed into the Pacific every day. But what no one is paying any attention to is that the entire mountain range that runs 100 miles up and down this coast is also contaminated. And as much radiation is pouring out… into the Pacific from the mountain range because it’s so contaminated, as from the Fukushima site… in fact, they’ve got an entire state pouring radiation into the Pacific.
“So what’s in the Pacific? Off of California, they’re finding radiation at what I would consider significant levels… in a cubic meter of ocean water, they’re finding 10 radioactive decays every second… So a cubic meter of water, if you’re in a dark room, would have 10 flashes of light every second, and that’s going to go on for 300 years. So we have contaminated the biggest source of water on the planet, and there’s no way to stop it.
“Maggie Gundersen, founder of Fairewinds: So are you saying that the contaminated water problem is hopeless? Is there nothing we can do to slow it down?
“Arnie Gundersen: It used to be that scientists believed dilution is the solution to pollution. But I think we’re finding with the biggest body of water on the planet, that you can’t dilute this stuff. And we’re going to begin to see this bio-accumulation, which is all the fish that are in the ocean are going to uptake the cesium and the strontium and become more and more and more radioactive.”
More insanity. Japan prepares for release of radioactive tritium from Fukushima into the ocean, April 13,2016: “Any exposure to tritium radiation could pose some health risk,” said Robert Daguillard, a spokesman for the United States Environmental Protection Agency, which takes steps to minimise the tritium from US nuclear facilities that escapes into drinking water. This risk increases with prolonged exposure, and health risks include increased occurrence of cancer.”
Think of oceans with no fish or in such small numbers the effect would be catastrophic in many ways: Geoengineering And Ocean Die Off, It’s Not Just Fukushima
My heart breaks for our fishing families, who I’ve always supported. I’ve read a lot of restaurants in California quit serving fish out of the Pacific over real concerns about Fukushima. People have read the truth about Fukushima and will not eat any fish coming out of the Pacific even as far away as Alaska. They just don’t feel it’s safe. Of course this hurts the livelihood of those fishing families and corporate fishing entities. But, if people feel something isn’t safe they’re not going to put it in their body or their family’s.
Our oceans provide us with so many wonderful things besides beautiful mammals, heavenly beaches and delicious fish of all kinds for consumption. They also provide critical plant life. Too many do not appreciate the importance of all sea life. TEPCO and the Japanese government are guilty of a monstrous crime against humanity.
How long is this going to last? How much worse is it going to get? Years or decades? How do you clean up an ocean? I have no answers to those questions. What I do know is this is very real. The problem is so huge I run out of words to describe it other than it truly is a crime against humanity and what’s happened and is happening to sea life in the Pacific Ocean is heart breaking.
I do think president-elect Trump should gather together the finest scientists and marine biologists NOT on the government payroll or who work for compromised organizations like the ones mentioned above. He needs to know the truth and what, if anything, can be done. One thing that must be done and should have been done six years ago: Japan has got to allow people who actually know what they’re doing shut down Fukushima forever. Do as the Russians did with Chernobyl and encase that damn facility in a steel and concrete sarcophagus (later replaced by a ‘New Safe Confinement‘), but get it done and stop the continued dumping of radiation contaminated water into the ocean.
One other thing that should be done if nuclear power plants are going to be built they must NOT be built anywhere near an ocean – especially an area known for earthquakes, typhoons and tsunami’s. God, how stupid and greedy. There should be a written agreement between all the major countries on this earth not to build where another Fukushima can happen.
It’s not possible to dilute the Pacific Ocean other than rain from Heaven. But, the American people deserve to know the truth about this disaster as far as sea life, the fishing industry and much more:
My column: Desalinization plants in California and Fukushima, March 2, 2014. That plant opened on December 14, 2015. Millions are drinking water from the Pacific Ocean; roughly 50 million gallons a day put out by that plant. Desalinization does not remove radiation. There are nine more desalinization plants approved up and down the coast of California. Think about that.
