The Fukushima nuclear disaster will be with us forever. Not only did the multiple melt-throughs contaminate the air, seawater and the wind blowing across North America but, radioactive contaminated fish were caught off the California coast. Think twice before eating West coast fish.
Tissue samples from 15 Bluefin Tuna all contained cesium-134 and cesium-137. The Wall Street Journal in U.S. Tuna Has Fukushima Taint quotes Nicholas Fisher at Stony Brook University, a marine biologist who was part of a study group, “We found that absolutely every one of them had comparable concentrations of cesium-134 and cesium-137.” Another biologist from that study said, “There were fish born around the time of the accident, and those are the ones showing up in California right now. Those have been, for the most part, swimming around in those contaminated waters their whole lives.”
It’s not surprising that the ass media downplays this as seen in CNN’s headline Fukushima tuna study finds minuscule health risks.
And, Reuters reports, “that the amount of radioactive material detected was far less than the Japanese safety limit.”
That’s utter bullshit! In the first place, the criminal Japanese government INCREASED the safety limit after the Fukushima disaster to avoid a panicked Japanese population stampeding off the island. The U.S. government did too. See HERE and HERE.
In the second place, there are NO SAFE LEVELS OF RADIATION. Washington’s blog does an excellent job of exposing governments’ criminal attempts to keep us calm while we’re being poisoned. See HERE.
I strongly urge you to click on that link and read a very thorough exposé of governments’ and the nuclear industry’s attempts to make us accept dangerous levels of poisoning.
The ass media continues to conveniently overlook the never-ending incompetence of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the owners and operators of the disastrous Fukushima nuclear power plants. Just in the last three months, the imbeciles at TEPCO have created one disaster after another.
In March, a failure of the cooling of the nuclear fuel was “caused by a problem with temporary electrical distribution boards installed in three of the plant’s four crippled reactors.” For more details see HERE and HERE and HERE.
In April, an underground tank storing radioactive contaminated water leaked. For more details see HERE.
In June, “the operator of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Wednesday admitted it had found another leak of radioactive water, the latest episode in a growing catalogue of mishaps.” See HERE.
The bungling idiots at TEPCO couldn’t find their butts if they used both hands. They aren’t capable of running a lemonade stand yet they’re still in charge of nuclear power plants as well as trying to clean up the six plant disaster at Fukushima. And, to top it off, the Japanese government reversed course and, instead of keeping all their nuclear plants off-line as originally announced, they are now planning on restarting them again.
Stay tuned. Just when you think it can’t get any stupider or more dangerous …
