Fukushima: Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

Collective Evolution.

When it comes to environmental disasters, the nuclear fallout at Fukushima has to be amongst the worst that has happened in the past few decades. Andrew Kishner, founder of http://www.nuclearcrimes.org/ has put together a great resource of information that tracks what has been developing over time in Fukushima as it relates to the nuclear incident. You can check out his research further using the links below.

The following is written by Gary Stamper in regards to what has been happening with Fukushima.

“The heart-breaking news from Fukushima continues to get worse -a lot worse. It is, quite simply, an out-of-control flow of death and destruction.

TEPCO is finally admitting that radiation has been leaking to the Pacific Ocean all along and it’s not showing signs of stopping just yet.

It now appears that anywhere from 300 to possibly over 450 tons of contaminated water that contains radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90, is flooding into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima Daichi site everyday.

To give you an idea of how bad that actually is, Japanese experts estimate Fukushima’s fallout at 20-30 times as high as as the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings in 1945.

There’s a lot you’re not being told. Oh, the information is out there, but you have to dig pretty deep to find it, and you won’t find it on the corporate-owned evening news.”

Some Facts From Andrews research.

LATEST: TEPCO says they believe 10 trillion becquerels of strontium-90 (and also 20 trillion becquerels of cesium-137) have leaked into the ocean from the crippled reactor complex since 5/11. (source). This is a ridiculously low estimate. Also, radioactive tritium levels in the sea (seaport) at Daiichi are creeping up and up and up (we knew that was gonna happen).

RECENT: In the latest mess at Fukushima, one or more of the hundreds of storage tanks at the nuclear complex holding EXTREMELY radioactive liquid waste are leaking. The radioactive liquid waste is flowing into the soil and standing puddles are ‘hot,’ measuring, at surface, about 10 Rem/Hr. Even taken out of context of the ongoing ‘level 7′ Fukushima nuclear disaster, these disastrous spills are considered BAD. As it turns out, the leak crisis has received a distinct crisis categorization, classed ‘a level 3′ on an eight point international scale (INES).

RECENT: Onsite contaminated water at Fukushima contains 3x the cesium released by Chernobyl (and Mighty Oak) – SOURCE

    I guess clubbing baby seals and hunting whales just isn’t enough; let’s just fuck everybody, right? And it’s ok that they lied about it for two years, no punishment at all? WTFF??

      Accurate information is the foundation of critical thinking.

    Japan has no apology and is not going to help with this disaster in the Pacific. Enjoy your last salmon, halibut, cod, prawns, shellfish meals from our dear Pacific Ocean that has nourished us all our lives.

    just to teach americans some maths, physics and history. firstly one ton equals 1 m^3 of water. 450 of them are flowing into an ocean that covers 1/3 of earths surface about 200 million square kilometers and is up to 8 km deep. really a mess if you ask me but neither a salmon nor any other fish will notice it. now history: amerika conducted a series of nuclear tests on and nearby some islands in the pacific during the 50ies and 60ies. some of you will remember bikini as not being a piece of textile. their impact was up to a 1000 times hiroshima and nagasaki and the site was thousands of km nearer to california. so if someone should apologize for radioactive pollution of athmosphere and oceans its the USA!

      I’d posted this above, but hey…

      Yay for actually crunching numbers!
      Way to use scare tactics to try to freak people out over a flash in the pan.

      OK. Even at 450 tons?
      It’s only.000000000000061852768 *percent* of the Pacific Ocean alone.
      It’s not even a drop.

      (About 239.65 US gallons equals one ton. So, even considering 450 tons, it’s 107842.5 gallons of water entering the ocean. And the Pacific Ocean has 660,000,000 cubic *kilometers* of water in it. There’s 264172052000 gallons per *one* km3, so that means the irradiated water is only 0.00004082282 *percent* of one km3. Now divide that by the 660 million km3’s in the ocean.)

      For a non-number comparison, try this:
      Compare the distance of one meter to the diameter of the *nucleus* of a gold atom. Not the electron cloud; just the nucleus.
      The gold atom’s nucleus is how much irradiated water is being released into the meter of the ocean.
      Also, Nagasak and Hiroshima *didn’t* have much fallout at all. They were relatively clean explosions. So 30 times a very small number is *still* a very small number.
      http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2466/if-nuclear-fallout-lasts-thousands-of-years-how-did-hiroshima-and-nagasaki-recover-so-quickly

      Correction:
      I found better numbers.
      Apparently I was comparing a percent of a number to a number itself.
      So a better comparison:

      Compare half the diameter of a proton to a full meter.
      Enjoy.

      Yes, jakob, and as a result of what the americans did in the Pacific in the 50ies and 60ies, Australians now have an exceptionally high rate of cancer, due to the SouthEast Trade Winds which carried all that fallout to the Eastern seaboard of Australia where 96% of the Australian population lives. That, together with the nuclear testing carried out by the British in Maralinga, in the outback in South Australia. However, the British were forced to clean up Maralinga.

    Do you worry about ALL the world’s bananas? No … so why worry about HALF the world’s bananas in the form of the BS being spewed about Fukushima???

    “Worstall writes, “I really don’t think that half the radiation of the world’s banana crop being diluted into the Pacific Ocean is all that much to worry about.”

    “You can worry about it if you want, but it’s not something that’s likely to have any real measurable effect on anyone or anything,” he concludes. ”

    Future me: Remember fish? When i was young we used to eat animals with delicious white meat that came from the sea! Seriously!

    Dem weasel words…

    Nuclear power might be kind of locally risky if it isn’t done properly. I mean, as in, a massive tsunami might cause a substantial release of radioactive material into the environment (which, interestingly, is more or less where the radioactive material came from in the first place). It’s still a drop in the global bucket, and I’m willing to take the risk of eating marginally radioactive fish (chronic exposure to low level radioactivity may actually trigger cancer-fighting mechanisms in the body; now how ’bout that?) in order to avoid the very certain risk of further accelerated global warming.

    Next up: Do wind turbines generate infrasonic waves that may cause your face to melt?

    (No, they don’t.)

    here’s a petition to ask U.S. government to engage in this matter. it is questionable situation for west coast people including Hawaii and Alaska. our government should protect the people where ever they live, and the situation is no longer just Japan’s problem. this matter should be discussed with all other countries to solve the situation together. Japan alone has been failing to control the situation for past 2 years. it’s time to get help from world wide experts.

    Hey that’s right the families of the soldiers that saw the nuculear test at Maralinga, are just a bunch of sooks. Their Dad’s have died, they all have cancer, they should just get on with it…
    Chenobyl is once again a booming little town, and Germany shouldn’t have to pay ‘Boar Tax’ because they are radioactive. Japan got over the last nukes, they should be use to it now….

    Isn’t that right ‘NUMBER CRUNCHER’ do you wanna go for a swim on the beach at Fukushima? I bet you don’t.

    really said to hear that, I love fish, or should I say loved? Some people can be so naive thinking that what leaked into the ocean is just a tiny drop. But it all gets mixed up into one soup and the result would be in the flesh and the stomachs of the fish we eat and not, not only in the Pacific. We have one world ocean, not four, because the waters of the four oceans are not completely separated.
    American leaders are running around trying to recruit allies to punish Syria for using chemical weapons. How about a nuclear weapon for the entire world ocean with the consequence that we left our children, the children of our children, etc without fish on the table?

      I’d argue the matter further, but clearly Humanity has seen the birth of Homo Superior this generation; an omniscient species which transcends mathematics, physics and logic. But not, as it turns out, miniscule doses of cesium.
