Fukushima Radiation

The map above comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center.  It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated.  As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United States.  Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean.  That means that the total amouont of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and it is steadily building up in our food chain.  Ultimately, all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin.  They are saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation.  We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse.  The following are 28 signs that the west coast of North America is being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…

1. Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores

Wildlife experts are studying whether fur loss and open sores detected in nine polar bears in recent weeks is widespread and related to similar incidents among seals and walruses.

The bears were among 33 spotted near Barrow, Alaska, during routine survey work along the Arctic coastline. Tests showed they had “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin lesions,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement.

2. There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline…

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.”

3. Along the Pacific coast of Canada and the Alaska coastline, the population of sockeye salmon is at a historic low.  Many are blaming Fukushima.

4. Something is causing fish all along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

5. A vast field of radioactive debris from Fukushima that is approximately the size of California has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is starting to collide with the west coast.

6. It is being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coast could double over the next five to six years.

7. Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.

8. One test in California found that 15 out of 15 bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

9. Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…

• 73 percent of mackerel tested

• 91 percent of the halibut

• 92 percent of the sardines

• 93 percent of the tuna and eel

• 94 percent of the cod and anchovies

• 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish

10. Canadian authorities are finding extremely high levels of nuclear radiation in certain fish samples…

Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.

11. Some experts believe that we could see very high levels of cancer along the west coast just from people eating contaminated fish

“Look at what’s going on now: They’re dumping huge amounts of radioactivity into the ocean — no one expected that in 2011,” Daniel Hirsch, a nuclear policy lecturer at the University of California-Santa Cruz, told Global Security Newswire. “We could have large numbers of cancer from ingestion of fish.”

12. BBC News recently reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are “18 times higher” than previously believed.

13. An EU-funded study concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.

14. Atmospheric radiation from Fukushima reached the west coast of the United States within a few days back in 2011.

15. At this point, 300 tons of contaminated water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

16. A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute says that “30 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of radioactive strontium” are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

17. According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.

18. According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day.

19. It has been estimated that up to 100 times as much nuclear radiation has been released into the ocean from Fukushima than was released during the entire Chernobyl disaster.

20. One recent study concluded that a very large plume of cesium-137 from the Fukushima disaster will start flowing into U.S. coastal waters early next year

Ocean simulations showed that the plume of radioactive cesium-137 released by the Fukushima disaster in 2011 could begin flowing into U.S. coastal waters starting in early 2014 and peak in 2016.

21. It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.

22. It is being projected that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon “have cesium levels 5 to 10 times higher” than what we witnessed during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many decades ago.

23. The immense amounts of nuclear radiation getting into the water in the Pacific Ocean has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issue the following warning

“Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.”

24. The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly coming from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living the the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time.  Just consider what Harvey Wasserman had to say about this…

Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.

Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in the muscles.

Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.

25. According to a recent Planet Infowars report, the California coastline is being transformed into “a dead zone”…

The California coastline is becoming like a dead zone.

If you haven’t been to a California beach lately, you probably don’t know that the rocks are unnaturally CLEAN – there’s hardly any kelp, barnacles, sea urchins, etc. anymore and the tide pools are similarly eerily devoid of crabs, snails and other scurrying signs of life… and especially as compared to 10 – 15 years ago when one was wise to wear tennis shoes on a trip to the beach in order to avoid cutting one’s feet on all the STUFF of life – broken shells, bones, glass, driftwood, etc.

There are also days when I am hard-pressed to find even a half dozen seagulls and/or terns on the county beach.

You can still find a few gulls trolling the picnic areas and some of the restaurants (with outdoor seating areas) for food, of course, but, when I think back to 10 – 15 years ago, the skies and ALL the beaches were literally filled with seagulls and the haunting sound of their cries both day and night…

NOW it’s unnaturally quiet.

26. A study conducted last year came to the conclusion that radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster could negatively affect human life along the west coast of North America from Mexico to Alaska “for decades”.

27. According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.

28. Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be threatened “for thousands of years“…

“Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.”

Are you starting to understand why so many people are so deeply concerned about what is going on at Fukushima?

    Not to minimize the content in any way, but for those not conversant with zillions of becquerels, 1 Curie in the old system is the equivalent of 37 billion becquerels, so numbers in this new system are already stratospheric. The other old value, the Rem, is just the opposite – 1 Sievert = 100 Rem. I think it is a disservice to list these huge numbers without putting them into proportion. Again, they are all incredibly bad numbers but putting things in quadrillions and quintillions puts it beyond the grasp of the average person.

    • ddb

      The map shows counts per minute, not Curies. These are individual decays.

      • 2¢Wurth

        You are correct, however the map does not indicate dose, and when the layman reads many of the points in Michaels articles about “trillions and quadrillions” it is hard to put it into perspective. You have to have several years of physics to understand effects of radiation and throwing huge numbers can become nothing more then fear mongering.

        • Brian Davids

          Whatever the count, have a look at the non-US sites. Why doesn’t Australia, Japan, or even Hawaii report these ‘high’ levels if the contamination is from Japan. Virtually zero non-US/Canadian sites have these high readings. Anybody ever consider that this ‘radiation’ might be US based?

        • Could you elaborate on whether these levels are actually concerning, for someone who isn’t familiar with radiation lingo.

          • 2¢Wurth

            Radiation is cumulative, and it depends on the type of element that you are exposed to. Old people are quite resistant to large doses of radiation, while a fetus is extremely intolerant and can die with small doses. Fukushima is giving off Cesium-137 which has a half life of more than 30 years, so this is a major concern, since once in the food chain the decay is very gradual. The more you consume the higher the dose. Cesium is also a salt and easily moves and spreads through nature. So, to answer your question, any major release of Cesium is very concerning. Japan has a limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram. Beef cows have been found to have more than 3,000 upon butchering, and fish caught just offshore have been detected with 740,000 becquerels. There are ways to deal with Cesium on land, however there is no process to remove it from billions of tons of seawater, so it is entirely possible that we are witnessing the death of large portions of the Pacific Ocean, which will have a profound effect on East Asian and North American diets.

          • David McFarland

            The levels involved of what any person will receive on an annual basis, with the exception of the Fukushima exclusion area, generally, are roughly the same as a singular banana. Ergo, nothing to worry about.

          • Banana Pimp troll

      • David McFarland

        The map shows natural radon levels, not even anything related to Fukushima.

  • MelArk

    I posted about citric acid…what I meant was absorbic acid, rather…citric acid is still good, but the vitamin c compound is absorbic acid…my bad…been a bit since I’ve dusted off the organic books, but now’s the time to do it. Any kind of vitamins or methodologies we can use to protect ourselves from radiation poisoning is useful. It’s all about damage control now; they’re never going to mitigate the problem. It will only get worse. Best of luck to everyone!

    • the_lemur

      Ascorbic acid, maybe.

    • rock

      continuue with regular Iodine intake or external application to support the thyroid and keep it from scavenging radioactive iodine ; and look into the abilities of DMSO to restore cells after radiation therapy,,,and also the ability of niacinamide to rebuild

      DNA….cause we need to restore the DNA structure that gets shot full of little holes by the rays of RADIATION ; learn about zeolite(clinoptilolite)
      for particle detox…see ets zeolite,,,and use zeolite for your garden soil to remediate for radiation…consider your eternal future carefully….it is guaranteed to come anyway….

      • arwbf

        rock- interested in the things you mentioned here, haven’t done enough research into repairing radiation-caused damage, but it’s something I need info about. I was used as a lab experiment without my knowledge years ago, given far higher doses of radioactive iodine repeatedly than is, by any standard, normal, so am now fighting the long-term effects 15 years later. Also about to move to Hawaii, clearly being affected by this radiation spread from Japan, so thanks for the suggestions, I intend to research them further.

  • MelArk

    People need to also start setting up greenhouses for themselves….all it takes is a simple PVC or wood frame and some heavy-weight plastic sheeting from a paint store. These materials are cheap, replaceable and readily available. They don’t take a whole lot of carpentry skills to construct either. And they provide the necessary shelter to grow our vegetables safely, out of the fresh-radiation-laden air…..hydroponics and aquaponics are also options, but that gets more expensive. But most people, in this country, if you live in rural areas…start building greenhouses NOW, start your seeds NOW and start growing your vegetables so you don’t have to buy them from grocery chains that get the bulk of their produce from the west coast this time of year.

    • got my vote for best comment on this board!

    • I’ve found (Dr Sircus – Treatments for Nuclear Contamination) sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is suggested for detoxing soil, as apparently it binds with uranium. Which might be why it’s shown to help cure cancer (Sodium Bicarbonate Cancer Treatment Overview) and protect patients from the toxicity and harm done by highly toxic chemicals used in chemotherapy. Is there anything that baking soda doesn’t do? It’s uses seem endless.
      I’m pretty sure the contamination is global you just have to look at how contamination from Chernobyl spread, I was told by a thyroid consultant it probably caused or contributed to my thyroid cancer. I feel it was a combination of things, probably radiation from Chernobyl, and a pretty poor diet at the time, when I was in my teens (eat healthy nutritious food), a week immune system (boost it), a lot of dental xrays (don’t get any if poss) just after the Chernobyl disaster happened, the contamination found in tap water (Purify) and other endocrine disruptor (avoid them), and other things such poor iodine uptake (increase it), possibly from eating goitrogenic foods (learn about them) without any knowledge about how they reduce iodine uptake, plus I was highly stressed (try to reduce stress) when Chernobyl happened and for quite a while after, which wouldn’t of helped much. God helps those who help themselves.

  • MelArk

    Also consider poultry pens, that have a top on them so the chickens are sheltered from falling radiation. That way you have safe eggs and meat when you need it. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to raise a few hens if you have an acre or less and are allowed to do it according to whether or not you live within a township and their rules permit you to small-scale farm. Even a spare bathroom or a hall closet can be turned into a very safe, productive grow room for tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, carrots, and herbs. It just requires good, safe and secure lighting fixtures, tiered appropriately. WalMart and Home Depot sell most of the supplies you need, it’s not hard to set one up inside your house. Just run extension cords and make sure they’re safely plugged into multi-unit surge protectors, and be careful when you water things. That’s all there is to it. Then you have fresh, clean vegetables, homegrown…no need to run to the stores to buy them!

  • Chesyre

    America minus 30 million useless eaters , why is this a problem ? In fact invite all illegals from across the country to go live there )

    • MelArk

      “useless eaters”…? What are YOU?!

    • thad

      one massive problem is it dont stop a your idea of worthless eaters it will take anyone no matter who they are every were and there is now place to get away from it for 6000 years get it ?

      • Chesyre

        and ? Too bad so sad. the bipeds with overclocked monkey brains destroyed their eco systems.

        • notso

          ok, and what member of the animal kingdom are you that you won’t be effected? Reptilian are you?

  • DJohn1

    I guess the question in mind is why aren’t we using radiation detection devices in our supermarkets?
    I find it ironic that Obama wanted MORE nuclear reactors in the USA.
    We, in Ohio, had such a reactor called the Mound. It was shut down. Our power companies almost went bankrupt trying this experiment. It still has to be maintained for many more years before it becomes safe.
    I wonder if the pyramids are radioactive. That would be the perfect building to store nuclear waste in. Something so massive and contained that nothing would be able to wreck it. Except of course another nuclear device.
    I bring it up because the scientists that have studied these pyramids all seemed to get sick and die when they first started. The explanation was some kind of contact poison but that arguement doesn’t fly. Back then people never gave any thought to the huge engineering that went into those pyramids. Something only a sophisticated engineering technology could accomplish.

    I personally think propane plants might be a lot more viable as a way to power things. We need to shut down the nuclear plants all over the planet and change them to something we can live with.

    What has to happen now is we need brilliant engineers that think outside the box. We have to find a device that eats radioactive materials for breakfast. That means some kind of sponge-like device that absorbs and destroys radiation. Don’t really know how to make such a device.

    But that might be our only hope of containing this nuclear power plant disaster. There are drugs that contain radioactivity in the human body. But nothing will help if it goes uncontained. So EVERY NATION has to help contain it. That means the traditional people we oppose like the Russians and the Chinese.
    Since this disaster sits right on both their doorsteps, a shift in the wind will put it right on their doorsteps as well.
    There is circumstantial evidence that a nuclear disaster has occurred in our far past. It hit the middle east. It hit both India and China IF the evidence is true as described in Indian documents supposedly very old.
    Those same documents describe a technology only available in the present day such as people in flying machines. It even gives the chemical mix for jet airplanes.
    The important thing is pooling the resources of everyone and eliminating this threat to everyone’s environment.

    • MelArk

      Well, we could all wear Geiger rings…the technology is available…and you just have it developed every week to test for exposure. But obtaining Geiger rings…suited for everyone…educating them on when to wear them, how to wear them, etc….and making sure that they adhere to the guidelines is time consuming, expensive, and very, very impractical.

      I’ve worked in radio-isotope labs before; this is a very dangerous scenario if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or think you could be pregnant. Family planning efforts should be put off for a few months to be on the safe side; that’s the ethical thing to do to mitigate any kind of genetic defects that present through the chain of embryonic development and so forth. Taking iodine tablets is a good idea; but they are in short supply, and they only protect your thyroid. That’s where they congretate and prevent other ions from absorbing into, but other body tissues are left totally susceptible to exposure, not just the thyroid gland.

      This is going to take an intensive education of the general public on how to be radiation-saavy, and it’s very, very impractical. It’s doable; but it’s impractical and logistically, a nightmare. The best bet is to educate yourselves and take care of your loved ones yourself. Check in on your elderly neighbors. If you see kids outside playing on playgrounds, tell their Parents it’s not safe. Put up flyers on telephone poles, leave them in grocery stores where you’re allowed to do so without getting into trouble for solicitation laws. Always ALWAYS check your local laws and regulations before you act though so you yourself don’t get into trouble informing anyone. You just never know these day.

      I am not an expert; I’ve had radio-isotope education at several universities here in the states and I understand basic nuclear regulatory procedures because it was a college interest of mine. But there ends my expertise!! Best of luck to everyone….stay indoors, especially during precipitation events!

  • Kim

    This is nothing. The worst is yet to come.

    • MelArk

      BREAKING: NEW EARTHQUAKE, TODAY, AT FUKASHIMA…Massive 6.9+ Earthquake is being reported to have occurred just today in Japan….this is going to cause a separate meltdown event…yes, indeed—THE WORST IS YET TO COME….everyone should stay inside as much as possible for the next few weeks as the air currents are going to bring this stuff to the North American Continent over the next few days as winds move from west to east….please, do your own research, look up the USGS earthquake map and see this for yourselves!

      • Kim

        Good lord. No. Please no

    • Hammerstrike

      300 tons of water? 1 kilometre cube of sea water is 1 billion tons of water.

      Fukushima is nothing.

      • Kim

        Oh, well then, by all means, just allow the radioactive cooling water to flow freely into the Pacific. No sense in worrying about storing it. While they’re at it, they may as well remove the barrier designed to filter the leaking water of gamma and beta particles before it enters the ocean. AND they really need to advise N/S Korea to lift their respective fishing bans. Sarcasm off.

        • Hammerstrike

          Yeah, because it is totally going to significantly increase the radioactivity level of some +660 000 000 000 000 000 tons of water.

          In the real world there is something called quantity.
          There isn´t enough radioative material in Fukushima to make the west coast or Pacific radioactive.
          Unless there is something else than a mere nuclear leak going on.

          • effff uuuuu

            you are an idiot.

          • Kim

            He’s not an idiot. He’s just bought in to the TEPCO talking points, sooner or later (let’s hope it’s later) he will come to understand what is happening to the Pacific Ocean.

          • David McFarland

            He’s actually right. TEPCO was dumb, yes, but he’s not right about the effects:
            Source: I’m an American Nuclear Operator for the US Navy, stationed in Japan, and took surveys during Fukushima.

            Your point is: “It’s radioactive!” Without knowing just HOW radioactive it is.
            My point: “Everything is radioactive!” It all matters how much. Sure, every gamma ray or neutron could be the one to give you cancer. But if that’s what you’re worried about I could come up with a list of things that you’d never eat again, you’d never sleep next to anyone, and you’d be searching the globe for a new place to live. You’d never fly in a plane, ever, and you’d never go inside a hospital, let alone outside.
            The point of the matter is that the levels of radioactivity are so low that there is so much more to worry about.

            How low, you ask? Well, the waters due to reach the california coast will have 15-40 becquerels of Cs-137 per cubic meter of water. That’s about 240 gallons. As a human, you drink just under 200 gallons every year, on average. A banana, for comparison, has 15 becquerels of K-40. This means that the ocean has diluted the Cesium so much that if you drank the water, unfiltered (assuming you physically could), for a year, you’d still be getting about as much as a singular banana, perhaps two or three to account for energy levels and biological half-life.

          • Hammerstrike

            What a convincing argument.

          • Kim

            There is something else happening at Fukushima. Reactors 1,2,3 melted down and the melted radioactive goo is fissioning underground. Problem is, no one knows exactly where. You should know that if u watched the coverage of the tsunami. Did you think they recovered and contained all that melted nuclear fuel?

            I agree that the water leaks are the least of our problems.

            Also, the ocean may not be “radioactive” but it’s contaminated. Polluted. Gone.

          • Hammerstrike

            What I think is that there is not enough nuclear fuel in the plant to make the west coast of NA or half the Pacific significantly radiocative.

            .youtube.c om/watch?v=kuPh6TfK4iY

            Hovewer I do think something something is happening in the Pacific, something that current, “orthodoxe” science cannot explain and much bigger than a mere nuclear reactor leak.

            Ring of fire is growing more active and earthquakes have been increasing worldwide for a while now.

          • Kim

            If that were true, TEPCO wouldn’t bother trying to contain any more leaks. we are back to square one- it seems that you and your you tube friends know better. You should contact the Japanese PM and take him up on that billion dollar offer. No one else has.

            You are soo wrong if you think there is not enough polluted materials. Its enough to go around the globe. But heey, if you wanna stick your head in the sand,. please do. but do it on a contaminated beach please..

          • Hammerstrike

            You are so wrong to believe Fukushima or even all of humanity´s nuclear powerplants contain enough isotopes to have large-scale effects on a water body as massive as the Pacific.

            1) Simple mathematic
            2) The effects of the phenomenon is not consistent with radiation poisoning.
            3) Phenomenon is part of a global trend of events that has been going on years before the Fukushima events.

          • 95% of the radiation stays in the top 200 feet of water, where 85% of the critters live. Uh huh, bet you didnt know that

          • Hammerstrike

            That is still trillions and trillions of tons of water, do the math.

            Radiations levels high enough to affect sea life would not avoid detection by scientists or even citizens with even a shred of scientifical education.

            newswatch.nationalgeographic.c om/2013/11/22/sea-snot-explosions-feed-deep-sea-creatures/

            And how does radiations cause this exactly?

          • Did the math, about 47 Bq per CF in the main bio layer of the Pacific, Cesium only. So considering other radio stuff, call it 100 Bq per CF. Thats not good.

          • Hammerstrike

            Let us see.

            100 tons of water with 400 grams of radioactive elements, that is 1 gram per ton, pretty bad.

            100 000 tons of water, that will be just 0.001 gram per ton.

            100 000 000 tons of water, that makes 0.000001 gram per ton.
            10 cubic kilometers of water, that being 10 000 000 000 tons of water…

            Meanwhile, mainstream medias are silent about increasing volcanic activities.

          • agreed, lots of stuff to be concerned with, but poisoning the Pacific is pretty crappy. The bio-accumulating is what I am worried about.

          • Hammerstrike

            I think something much more significant and potentially dangerous going on than a mere nuclear pwoerplant leak.

            It is part of a global trend of phenomenons that has been going for years before Fukushima and that the current science cannot explain, something scientists will not even touch with a 200 meters long pole, at least not officially.
            Thought I suspect effects will become such that there will not be the slightest doubts that it is happening.
            Kinda like when Yellowstone and a few other supervolcano errupts, Pacific coasts are hit by tidal waves 10 or 30 times higher than the ones that struck India in 2004 and Japan in 2011.

          • I feel the same way. Magnetic pole shift? Volcano, global cooling, and loss of our protective magnetosphere. All the usual suspects. No wonder the powers that be are stealing ALL the wealth in the world.

          • Hammerstrike

            I don´t think so.

            These would be “natural” events. My thinking was that the universe we usually see is not all of the universe, we are just on one facette of it, there are other realities, there are laws of physics that remains unknown.
            There is a storm of a sort coming or we are just leaving a calm area.

            Scientist today cannot exactly adress that, can they? They won´t be burned at the stake but they are academics that abides by mainstream societal and establishement beliefs, especially when they have jobs while the Powers That Be controls the money flow and medias.
            Even when they go against human-caused global warming, come up they will have problems, if results goes against the offical theory the plug will most likely be pulled on the experiment.

          • David McFarland

            Do the math: radiation levels in the Pacific will rise by about .01%.

          • Hammerstrike

            Exactly and the response of anti-nuclear nuttes to that is insultes and accusations of being a “shill” to the nuclear industry.

        • David McFarland

          Just because “it’s radioactive,” doesn’t mean it’s going to do much of anything. Considering that water was pre-filtered and the earth itself puts out far more uranium into the ocean than the reactor puts out cesium, I think the water going into the ocean is actually diluting the ocean water and making it SAFER.
          It’s all about levels.
          And yes, this is nothing.

          COAL POWER on the other hand, is 10000 times worse when it comes to contamination – annually – than Fukushima.

          • Hilarious….making it safer.

            effen troll

    • Scary Bananas

      1 people = 7k Becquerels in radioactivity
      7 billion people = 49 Trilions Becquerels

      I suppose that people are many times more radioactive then Fukushima!

      So what’s so scarry?

      • Sandra Bell

        You are in denial. I guess some people find it more comfortable to live with their head in the sand, rather than accept the truth. Your denial will not make things different than they are. Some of us already figured this out long before any scientific reports. It’s just common sense that if tons of radioactive waste is spewing constantly from Fukushima, the oceans will eventually be ruined.

        • David McFarland

          Your right. It’s Fukushima that’s the problem.
          Nevermind the fact that when it comes to the Tuna spawning near Fukushima, you could eat a Tuna-Steak for every meal of the week an still get less harmful radiation than a single banana would give you all at once, and they’re still getting better about filtering out the Cs-137, and that you’re still more at risk of mercury poisoning due to Chinese Coal power than Fukushima.
          Or that Coal is doing 10,000 times more to contaminate the environment per year than Fukushima has in total.
          Or that more people died because they had a seafood allergy and took potassium iodine tablets to protect themselves, while Fukushima hasn’t killed anyone yet and only two people got enough radiation to give them a considerable risk of cancer.

          • Sandra Bell

            No one said that coal, mercury and a thousand other things are not killing us. Fukushima is a disaster and will have lethal and long-term effects. Radiation is insidious. You can’t see it, smell it or feel it, but it’s there. The enormous consequences will make themselves known in time, You seem to be a shill for the nuclear power industry. Is that your how you make your money? BTW, I don’t eat tuna or any other being that has eyes or had a mother. The insanity of factory farms and animal agriculture is yet another enormous, polluting atrocity on our ravaged planet.

          • David McFarland

            And you seem a shill for the Anti-Nuclear Activists, is that how you make your money? Unlike you, I don’t actually believe that statement: I have no reason to believe you do make money on such statements, nor do you have any reason to assume I do.
            You simply say that because your assumption-based logic is defeated by my fact-based on, so you automatically generate another assumption based on the premise that I MUST be getting paid to say such things – after all, if I were telling the truth, my factual and logical argument would destroy your factless argument to smithereens.
            You don’t like what I have to say, so you assume I’m lying? Wonderful way to spit in the face of scientific method or peer review. Your high school teachers would be proud of your train of thought.

            No, I am not a “government/nuclear industry shill.” I work on Nuclear Reactors, yes. But the work is extremely stressful, and I do not get paid enough to continue beyond my present contract, let alone lie for them. As my pay is fixed – not even performance based, and I get no overtime (I’d make a killing if I did) – I do not benefit in any way from making these posts other than to fix ignorance that so dearly annoys me. Were the nuclear industry to flourish, I would not benefit, as I seek other lines of work after I leave my present one. Were it to fail catastrophically, I’d only be leaving my present stressful line of work sooner.
            That is not to say I am not pro-Nuclear. It’s the right option. It has the fewest deaths per kw/h, it’s the most powerful, least harmful to the environment, et cetera. All of my research and experience counters your assumptions and tramples them into the ground.

            You can see radiation, if you have the proper medium. Not with the naked eye, no (certain gels do show trails, though), but you can detect it. You can detect it VERY EASILY, actually. The instruments used to detect radiation can detect levels so low, it would be comparable to a wand that you could pass over your food – even your food, lettuce included – and it would tell you how many e.coli bacterium were on it. The number would likely startle you, but it wouldn’t hurt you. Without proper knowledge, you might throw that food out, even.
            Similarly, during Fukushima, we saw what appeared to be high-levels – at first – until we did the proper math. My colleagues and I in the Tokyo Bay were quite relieved when we figured out – humorously – that those fleeing the Tokyo Area to the US by Air were getting more radiation in their flight alone, also in a shorter, more acute time, than those of us staying in Tokyo, simply because the levels were so low. This was not the “Nuclear Industry,” telling us this. I took surveys. I pulled out my own sources, we plugged in numbers, we fact-checked them again and again We got virtually nothing. I was even given an extensive Internal Dose Measurement, standing in a big dosimeter box, and allowed to view my results, and then I myself took measurements of hundreds of others. Most shielded the detectors from background levels (in a clean area) naturally there than actually causing the detectors to show more. Those that did, did so on such a small scale that it could have actually just been the detector picking up a bit of extra radon from the environment.

            We already know what the consequences are. We did extensive testing in the ’40s and 50s – much of them very productive, if unethical. Like injecting considerable amounts of plutonium into a man misdiagnosed as having terminal cancer – who then died decades later of genetically predisposed heart disease.

            Also, the Tuna I speak of is not from a factory farm, and fish also lack thalomachortical connections in their brains, and therefore cannot be tortured or recognize pain in the manner in which other animals or humans can. They react to pain as your leg does when a doctor tests your reflexes, or your eyelid does when something flies towards it rapidly.
            But that is beside the point, though you seemed so adamant to speak of it.

            Foods that will affect your more than anything contaminated by Fukushima:
            Bananas (Enough that it has it’s own Dose/Banana as a measurement, the Banana Equivelant Dose, which is 15 becquerels.)
            White Potatoes
            Low-Sodium Salt
            Lima Beans
            Brazil Nuts (the highest on the list.)

          • steven robinson

            David McFarland you are a idiot, I bet you are seeking medical attention right now for effects of Fukushima.

          • David McFarland

            What makes you say that? What makes you think your wild assumption is true? Are you truly that arrogant? That bullheaded and short sighted? Do you really think the US Navy, with hundreds of operators heavily trained on the matter, would ever allow us to stay? Furthermore, do you think WE, the operators, the guys collecting the data, would ever allow our families, our children, ourselves to be exposed to harmful levels of radiation? You’re talking about the very same four-hundred nuclear operators that, the following year, did everything in their power to get their Commanding Officer FIRED. You’re not talking about brainwashed lackeys, you’re talking about those nerds you always hated in school who never had to study for tests, the guys who actually knew what was going on in the political world and cared while all your friends were off getting high.
            Nevermind the fact that I actually know how much I received from Fukushima. 4 mrem – or 40 microsieverts – over the course of several weeks. We are required to carry Dosimetry, as nuclear operators, on us at all times. They aren’t analyzed by “big wigs,” or suits but by people we know.
            We did the surveys ourselves. With equipment we calibrated. Not men in suits, but guys we go out drinking with, our roommates, our friends, et cetera.

            I got to get inside a nice huge box, stand there for ten minutes, and get told exactly how much contamination I had in my body. Got to actually see the results. Not told to me by some big-wig or a guy in a suit. A regular joe. A servicemember. A guy skilled in his field. It amounted to pretty much no contamination at all.
            I actually recently did my Nuclear Health Assessment recently (required every 5 years as a Nuclear Operator). All I got out of it was “Eat less sodium.”

          • Tony Binca

            Who calibrates the detectors you wear/use?

          • David McFarland

            The ones we physically wear are calibrated by other ELTs off-ship. The ones we use for daily monitoring/constant monitoring that were actually being used during the incident must be calibrated daily by ourselves so we always know for certain exactly how much we’re getting and so no outside individuals can interfere.

            … When did I ever get any of my info for this from a TV?

            Answer: Not even once.

          • David McFarland

            Yeah. Really, really not.
            30 mrem is the most anyone got as far as US Navy personnel go, and that was one idiot who thought making snow-angels on the flight-deck of the Reagan was a good idea. The result was that his float-coat had to be trashed, but he was fine and because he didn’t consume any radioisotopes, he required nothing more than a shower and received higher levels of radiation than normal – still remarkably low – for only a short period. As he was wearing a flight-deck jersey, only his head was exposed – and only his hair actually contacted the flight deck. The vast majority of radioisotopes involved were Beta-emitters, and clothing, skin, and hair are adequate to protect vital organs in that case (betas are electrons and positrons, and act just like you’d expect them to – their ability to penetrate in-force is extremely weak, as they interact almost immediately. In this case, that happens to be with clothing, dead skin (as your entire outer layer of skin is dead), hair (also dead), et cetera.

            I myself have received over 50mrem in the course of a week from my work.

            So, no, I’m not receiving medical attention, nor have I for the effects of Fukushima. The effects on my body resulted in less damage than you’d receive from a static-shock from touching a door-handle in a dry-winter.

          • Earthman

            Typical answer from someone who can’t understand why an expert in the field knows more than them.

            I’m salary. Love or hate nuclear power, I get paid the same amount. I do this out of love for humanity, environment, and science. And ever the sliglhtest bit watching fearmongers squirm when they can’t argue with fact and reason, and somehow think their 5 minutes of studying Google beats my 8 years of operational experience, which includes internal dose investigations following Fukushima for FIVE YEARS.

            Where in the world do you get off thinking you know better? Have you been patrolling the pacific and maintaining radiological equipment for five years following a nuclear accident? Do you hahIf your answer is no, listen to an expert, not fearmongers who make money on sensationalist news.

          • Earthman

            Just have to read the comments about you and it’s quite clear your a troll.

          • David McFarland

            You wishing it does not make it so. You only wish it so because you can’t stand to believe someone on the internet might know more than you. Someone might decide to pick and argument they know they can win because they literally do it for a living, knowing you cannot win because you can’t even talk in rudimentary terms about the subject. You wouldn’t pick a fight with a pilot about planes, you wouldn’t pick a fight with a doctor about surgery, yet you believe it wise to pick a fight with a nuclear operator about nuclear power, let alone a nuclear operator who took radiation surveys in Japan following Fukushima when the subject matter is just that.

          • Earthman

            lol Read the comments there’s the proof. Keep deflecting from the real questions and stop putting words in others comments. It doesn’t help make your case.

            Your two arguments:
            1) I’m paid to say these things. I told you why that’s not possible.
            2) You said it would take 30 years for evidence to show. I said you have no proof of this and you’re just making assumptions.

            What is it that I’m missing?

          • Earthman

            “What is it that I’m missing?” quite a bit by the looks of it. Read what others say about YOU. Geez for a smart guy you certainly are socially inept.

          • David McFarland

            You’re an amazing deflector, Earthman. How about you point out what I missed? Or can you?

            And yeah, I don’t really care what people think when they would trust a sensationalist journalist who can’t be bothered to do any research over a nuclear operator when the subject is over nuclear power. If that makes me socially inept, I like it that way. I’ll associate with people who trust the opinions of experts over sensationalist fearmonger Dunning-Krugerists. I don’t want to be a part of a society that does the opposite.

          • David McFarland

            That would be funny, though, what with this guy calling me a plank.

          • me

            No doubt that your argument is valid but the real question is whether or not it is true. A valid argument in logic simply means that the conclusion follows from the premises. If your premises are mistaken, however, then the argument ( though valid ) is untrue.

            There is no shortage of cases in which science has gotten it wrong. I have seen videos in which children were sprayed with DDT to prove its safety and of course there was no shortage of peer reviewed research at the time to support its safety. Yet decades later the US banned its use based on (at the time) new research invalidating all that was once held to be correct and factual. Heck, Hitler used the very real research of Francis Galton ( in part ) to justify the deaths of millions in WW2.

            Pluto was a planet, the earth was flat, and at one time homosexuality was listed as a mental disorder in the DSM (diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders). Heck at one time they treated homosexuality with medication and medical treatment. Ignaz Semmelweis was a physician who 160 plus years ago put forward the idea that the washing of their hands prior to surgery, may reduce the risk of infections. You know what the scientist, doctors, and medical associations of the day did to him? They ruined him and he ended up dying in an insane asylum. Of course now its just plain ole common sense.

            So there is the very real possibility that all that you hold to be factual may one day prove to be farcical. In fact I am aware of research that pretty much invalidates most of your points. True you know a great deal, but its not how much you know but rather whether or not you know the right stuff.

            I guess the analogy would be how the Democrats and Republicans view and interpret the same events differently. Like the difference in medicine between the US and China.

            I guess my point is that there are in fact different schools of thought that are equally as valid and supported by research with regards to the points you bring up that contradict your argument and the fact that you are unaware of them or intentionally leave them out or discount them does not inspire confidence.

            Like Plato said over 2000 years ago ” The root of all evil is ignorance”

          • David McFarland

            Pluto being a planet was not a matter of “getting it wrong,” it was a matter of, “Oh, if we call Pluto a planet, we sort of have to call these other half-dozen objects planets, too.” Many of your examples are based off of people only claiming to be scientists. I was (as are many individuals in the modern era), at the age of ten, more a scientist than many of your example-individuals simply because I’d learned about the Scientific Method and applied it.

            What we know about radiation is based on solid fact. We’ve tested it thoroughly, some of it through unethical methods (as in, people being diagnosed with terminal illnesses being injected with considerable amounts of plutonium, some misdiagnosed still lived for decades after and died of nonrelated illnesses).

            It’s not a matter of “different schools of thought,” that contradict with mine. It’s a matter of people being educated on the matter or not. Those who are not are often educated selectively on only what they wish to know. I’ve yet to see an individual studied on nuclear physics and the effects of radiation make ridiculous claims such as “The West Coast is getting fried,” for the simple fact that it isn’t. We can prove it. Heck, I could call up a buddy of mine right now (granted, that would require him to not be asleep) and ask what he’s got for airborne contamination in Seattle. He just has to walk down to one of his plant’s continuous airborne monitoring detectors.

            Now, when it comes to schools of thought, of those who’ve bothered with any matter of education on the subject, there are those who would disagree with me on the subject of just how devastating Fukushima was, and how serious it was. Some will tell you it was far more serious – and it’s not a matter of differing facts. They are those that would argue any an all additional radiation exposure by the general public is a tragedy – However, they don’t differ on the facts.
            The facts are what we can physically see. We can know empirically how much Cs-138 is going to show up to Californian shores. We know the average amount of radiation that will give you an increased risk of cancer. We know how that it’s safer to eat a Tuna Steak from Fukushima than a banana when you’re talking about contamination. This isn’t comparable to the “scientists” of old believing mice spawned from straw, this is comparable to them noticing that mice physically existed.

          • Wake up you banana argument pimp!

          • Hammerstrike

            Don´t confuse them with facts, they´ll just get angry.

          • Cain Abel

            There is still no evidence showing that DDT is not safe.

          • me

            I guess a simple example of how transitory scientific fact is would be to ask you what if anything exist of the scientific wisdom of the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th century. Heck almost none of what has come before us is taken seriously today. Does any scientist seriously believe that flies are spontaneously generated from meat or that you can predict behavior by reading the bumps on a head? Are any scientist still trying to figure out how many angels can dance on the head of a needle? Do scientist still think that the different races come from different great apes? Are psychologist and doctors still advocating the use of cocaine for various maladies? Heck at the start of the 20th century here in the US, scientist and doctors were busy trying to prove that scurvy was a virus based disease despite the fact that western europe had been treating it successfully with fruit for centuries. As recently as the middle of the 20th century it was thought by many doctors and scientist that cancer was caused by bacteria and that it was contagious. Hopefully it is clear to you that most of what man has considered to be factual or true has proven time and time again to be nothing more than a diversion. No doubt we have to start somewhere and of course this is how we advance our understanding of the world around us, but the lesson to be learned is that we must take what we learn and know with a grain of salt.

          • Jesus, if you don’t understand the falseness of the Banana analogy, you are in sad shape to be pimping nuke

          • David McFarland

            How is it false? Cesium -137 decays at 110% the power of Potassium-40. It has a biological half-life of 70 days to Potassium’s 16 days.
            So, if you eat the Tuna around Fukushima, currently contaminated at 15 becquerels/100kg (a single banana weighing .12kg has 15 becquerels), that means you can – if you do the math, eat more than 20 Tuna Steaks weighing 1kg each, and, – with the assumption that you don’t expel any cesium until day 70 – you’ll get as much of a dose as you would a singular banana.
            I use bananas because they sound ridiculous – because it is. It’s a perfectly valid argument.
            Do the math again, and you’ll find a banana is 166 times more radioactive than the Tuna around Fukushima if you do it by kilogram.

            I find many of these doctors to be a bit nonsensical, as they seem to be implying that cesium stays in the body – it does not. You expel all cesium from your body within 70 days.

            I still have yet see anyone providing any information stating the falseness of the banana analogy, whereas I’ve provided the math.

            It requires knowledge of the difference between Radiation, Contamination. Dose, Radiation Levels, and conversions. If you don’t know the difference between any of those, you don’t even know Radiation 101.

          • LOL because the body self regulates level of potassium, and ALL potassium in the world has same level of radioactivity. So there is zero net change. Your statement of “all cesium is expelled in 70 days” is laughably false. The biological half life of cesium is 70 or 90 days. AND if you continue to intake rad cesium, then your level does not fall off with time.

            Whether you know it or not, you are a pimp for radiation death. Stop that!

          • David McFarland

            Your own potassium irradiates you more than anything you’ll eat from Fukushima.

            All, “continue to intake Cs-137” is the key phrase. It doesn’t stick around that long.

            After carefully read this post i find myself on the edge of insanity. How can you defend the pollution we made on this little spec. If you think there is nothing to be afraid of and everything is sunshine and peaches. Then you’re lost within yourself. Tjernobyl still pollutes with radiation.

            First-class, d-bag. I was in Japan during the Earthquake of ’11. Took the survey, internal dose investigations, decon, et cetera. Not some fresh-boot just starting off and all gung-ho-“yay Navy.”

            It’s just fun to point out some of that motivational stuff they told us way-back-when.

            It’s also fun to point out fun little facts that Coal power is doing 10,000 times more to irradiate the world every year than Fukushima, or that it’s contamination is a drop in the bucket next to natural uranium in the water from the Earth. So I’d contest the use of the word “considerable.”

          • John Standen

            David you are clearly a propagandist for the Nuclear Industry – I have heard all of your arguments and ‘facts’ many, many times – how do you sleep at night – maybe count the children dying of cancer

          • David McFarland

            You’re clearly a propagandist for the Non-Nuclear Industry. I have heard all of your arguments and ‘facts’ many, many times – how do you sleep at night – maybe count the people dying of lung cancer, heavy metal poisoning, cold-related illness, heat-stroke, and everything else related to not having enough electricity or fossil-fuels?

            See where you get when you start bringing wild assumptions with no actual factual basis into the mix? They get thrown right back at you.

            If you want to call me a propagandist, fine, at least recognize that I’m right. I don’t have a problem with being a truthful propagandist.

            Fact of the matter is I know how much radiation I get. As a nuclear worker or just in civilian life, and living in Japan at the time of Fukushima. I know what it takes to have a considerable risk of cancer.
            Which is really the issue. Most people here “RADIATION” and say “OH NOEZ RADIATION,” without understanding that even most Japanese got less in four weeks from Fukushima than the sun gave them in four days if they’d stayed outside for any amount of time.

          • John Standen

            Come on David at least a bit of originality to keep us vaguely engaged in your delusions

          • David McFarland

            My “delusions” are supported by the fact that I OPERATE NUCLEAR REACTORS FOR A LIVING. My specific specialty, above all other realms of nuclear training, is nuclear safety.
            Ever held a radiac (do you even know what a radiac is, or for that matter, what the differences are in radiation, or for THAT matter, what the difference between radiation and contamination is)? Ever qualified to work on radiation? Ever actually surveyed something? Ever actually see one of those things go off? Ever actually receive not one, but dozens of internal-dose surveys of yourself? Ever actually perform internal-dose surveys on yourself? Ever actually calibrated a radiac, so you know it’s working right and you’re not being fooled by “the man?” Ever actually get told you’ve got internal contamination?
            Except for that last one, I’ve done all of the above.

            Sorry if my facts topple your deluded conspiracy theories.

          • Tony Binca

            Again, who is monitoring the radiation you are exposed to and who calibrates the machines that detect the dose you’re getting? The nuclear industry itself? Unless you buy or build your own testing equipment you’re trusting someone else to monitor your dosage.

          • Lij Lij Briggy

            We are fowling our own planet because of our incatiable appetite for convenience from fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Until we as a species demand of our political leaders, an alternative such as geothermal and solar energies- we will be a constant with having scenario after scenario of poisoning of ourselves and the planet.

          • David McFarland

            New nuclear technologies are remarkably safe, some, like Thorium, physically cannot melt down (understanding that requires a bit more understanding of nuclear physics)
            Look at every major nuclear incident we’ve had.
            All designed and built in the ’50s and ’60s.
            It’s like saying that the old room-sized computers of the ’50s can’t compute more than a few math problems, so all computers, even modern ones, aren’t powerful enough to do more than a few simple equations.

      just because you can’t see it or smell it, right? It’s the acute versus chronic exposure argument; if you had your clothing tested…your blood tested…or better yet, your hair and fingernails clipped and tested, you’d see the levels of radiation you’ve been exposed to. Do you have the money and resources to do that? Most of us don’t. Most of us don’t know to even do that, or that it could be done. And doctors, most every MD out there, has no clue what the symptoms of radiation poisoning are because it’s just not something they’ve been trained for. It’s in the medical manuals, but they’re not trained for it. We have experts that dole out expert advice and it’s absolutely worthless because they speak without having been property trained in the first place. And the majority of the population is too dumb or lethargic to bother caring to advocate for themselves. Children are who are going to suffer because of this. And the elderly. It’s the middle age population that needs a wake up call!

    Who says this is all from Fukushima? Stuff is going on in the Atlantic as well. Where are the results about that?

    Fukushima could easily have been stopped with borated concrete – they do it all the time.

    This is to cover-up radiation coming in from space.

    • MelArk

      but they haven’t…TEPCO dropped the ball on this. It’s melted down several times in the last year. The radiation from space, yes, that’s definitely affecting us. But it has been since we’ve been on this planet. In varying amounts. The radiation from Fukashima…that’s been since the initial 8.9 massive earthquake. And it travels to OUR continent via precipitation events and major jet stream air currents. It drops on us. we digest it when we eat foods that come from the west coast, mexico, or the western coast of south america. And yes, stuff is going on in the Atlantic…but it pales in comparison to the disaster that’s going on in Northern Japan and floating our way, daily.

Because my god is not associated with a human, it is everything. Our oneness of consciousness needs to put down our ego and see the bigger picture.

        Your “god” is a god of your own making. He conforms to your way of thinking, your likes, and dislikes. The Bible calls that “idolatry”.
        The one true God, who created everything, is real easy to get to know–just pick up the Bible, His Word, and seek Him and His Salvation. We conform to His Word, not the other way around.
        That you would put plants and trees and animals over the salvation of your eternal soul, is disturbing.
        Everyone lives eternally. Every single one of us. The PLACE where we spend eternity is the important part. And……it is totally up to you.

        • silva rerum

          I personally think it’s pathetic that you think the Bible is above the folly of humanity – that to you it seems to be the be-all, end-all. What you call “His Word” is actually a collection of texts written by multiple people (aka: humans) hundreds of years after the events they’re describing. The fact that you seem to take this human-written book as the Word of God is ridiculous. Are you a grown adult, or a child living in fantasy land? Learn how to think for yourself. I grew up as a Catholic, went to a Catholic school, I was baptized, had my first communion, and was confirmed. You know what all that religious education taught me? It showed me that religion is a scam, and that I want no part in it. It showed me that people like you are more concerned with getting to “Heaven” than with helping your fellow man or woman. It’s no wonder so much of this planet is going down the drain, when there are people like you who keep saying “Who care’s about the planet, or love, or helping each other? I just want to get to heaven by following what an antiquated and out-dated text tells me to do.” I don’t care about your heaven, I don’t want to go there, and personally I don’t believe that that’s where my soul is going to end up when I die. You may feel sorry for me, or feel superior because you have it “right”, but I hope that someday you broaden your perspective to realize that with the sheer amount of people on this planet, all with their varying religious systems, yours is but a tiny opinion in a sea of competing religious teachings that are all essentially trying to say the same thing.

          • ort

            Forsake your foolish secular humanism and your denial of the Almighty and His Word. You may have “grew up catholic”, but you never understood a thing.
            Jesus is the only way to the Father. The Bible is the complete Word of God, Theoneustos. (Sp), “God breathed.”
            ALL of us are sinners in need of a savior. That savior is Messiah Jesus. Period. “There is only one Name under heaven given among men whereby we might be saved.”

            You can keep your earth worship, all-roads -lead -to -God, I-found-out-xyz theory. I will have none of it. Your way leads to eternal damnation. “There is a way which seemeth right to a man, the end thereof is death.”

            I feel sorry for you only so much. For you were shown the Way and rejected it. I’m not even catholic, by the way. I disagree with most of the RCC’s teaching. I simply read the Word of God. And Salvation is such a simple concept even children understand it.

            What makes you think that the bible is the Word of the Almighty and not human-written?

          • ort

            Simple—prophecy. Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies concerning His birth, teaching, death and resurrection. Read Isaiah 53. it literally screams “Jesus”.
            Plus, all the books of the Bible, both Old Testament and New, were written by many different authors (under the influence of the Holy Spirit) from all walks of life and all spans of time; yet, it fits together perfectly.

            Read the book “Evidence that demands a verdict” by, I think, Lee Strobel. He is a lawyer and was an avowed atheist until he used the Bible to build a “court case”, if you will, to disprove the resurrection. He couldn’t. He is now a saved believer.

          • Hammerstrike

            If he did not trust the bible about Josuah´s resurrection, why trust it to proove that it did not happen?
            Not quiet relevant to the question. The resurrection happening doesn´t make the rest of the bible 100% true.
            He believed that the resurrection of Josuah being false would make christianity false, I am not so so sure about that but I am pretty sure it wouldn´t proove that the bible is 100% false either.
            Under the influence of the holy spirit, according to who? According to themselves.
            What does their acts says, according to their own words?

            Numbers 31:7-18 NLT
            It shows that if there was indeed an influence on them, it was often not one by the master Josuah was loyal to.

            Possible that there are things that Josuah said and did that only a selected few know of nowadays, the Vatican holds many secrets.

Why did your so call god say this mark is so if someone does, the same will happen to them, How did both Cain and your so called god forget there were only two people left in the world, being his mother and father, How did Cain go to a land and meet his wife?

          Sorry to weigh in on this heated conversation but I just have to say a few things if that’s okay 🙂
          To be very honest, I’ve been raised in a Lutheran church, baptized, pray every night and believe Jesus is Lord. I’m proud to say I’m Christian. 🙂
          Your efforts to spread the word of God are truly enlightening but I was taught that the Lord gave people a choice.
          I know it is frustrating that people won’t listen to what we have to say, and how they continually mock us and I acknowledge that there are some Christians who claim they believe when they really don’t. But what I’ve always thought is what we (Christians) do is spread the word of God, tell information for those who ask, then the rest (faith) is up to the Holy Spirit.
          There will be many people who continue to turn away from God, who gives them chances to know Him, but therefore it is their decision and so those people, who are set in their ways, will be affected because of their choice to turn away from God.
          I appreciate everything you’ve said and how you referenced versus from the bible, but we don’t know when this world is going to end. (or when Christ is going to return).
          But all I wanted to say is that spreading belief online isn’t the best way to spread the word. I’m sure the Lord will provide you a chance to share more about Him in real life. 🙂
          However, when given this chance, tell non-believers instead how much God loves them, how He gave His only Son to suffer and die for them so that through him we could go to heaven. (Then you can tell them the rest, and if they’re not interested, then its up to God. They might want to know more in the future or not, it’s only up to them and its their choice either to believe or not).
          God bless you, and I’ll keep you in my prayers. 🙂

You will see in the next few years evacuations of Japan, the Pacific Islands and portions of the West Coast of North America. Millions in the Northern Hemisphere under 40 will have their life spans shortened by 20-40 years. Since the oceans circulate around the globe, all life will be eventually extinguished.

    I have somewhat of a presence on the Internet – social media, yahoo, et cetera, and I have yet to find a reasonable response to why the mainstream media isn’t reporting on Fukushima. To me, it’s the number one threat to the human family, of all the problems, economic, political, social, fukushima is the worst thing we have every aced or will face in our generation. There is no solution to this. The melted core(s) are in the earth. No one knows where they are. And let’s not talk about the plutonium rods (plutonium is the most toxic substance known to man) perched atop No. 4.

    Should bury the damn thing with cement and sand like chernobyl…. But depopulation is the plan. Won’t get into the unnatural earthquake map associated with that day…. might fry some brains with the thought that earthquakes can be made these days. But…. 2 + 2 = 4 and Japan was threatened with an earthquake. look up Benjamin Fulford Japan threatened with earthquake. should come up. This is all part of the plan. The news don’t report on it because it could save lives.

        Look up hydrofracturing….and re-injection….and then look up Boyle’s law and Charle’s law….system equilibration….it’s not a matter of what something weighs; that’s just one parameter in the overall balanced equation, mathematically speaking. The physics of it is this: when you remove one mass weighing ‘x’ amount from one area of ‘y’ size, there is left a void equal to ‘y’ in measure, which is then filled by whatever settling goes on underground over time, through heat events, and the natural movements of the heavy metals, in their liquid forms, as is the case in the plate tectonic THEORY….then, when the oil and gas companies RE-inject frack fluids and waste materials back into a DIFFERENT layer of the earth, usually a much more shallow layer, very close to many of where our water tables are….and there are no regulations, federal or state, that set laws about this stuff….you can find some, but they’re not enforced by any stretch of the imagination……so you have ‘n’ extra mass of ‘g’ size and ‘m’ weight going back into this space that’s ALREADY filled with something….that ‘something’ moves into a different area because it’s displaced…..

        Do you see what’s happening? Many people have a very hard time thinking abstractly about this, and unless it’s drawn out on a blackboard, it’s very, very difficult to describe the mechanism in words. Or mechanisms….or equations, because there are literally hundreds that compose the overall “System dynamics” of any given injection or removal event that goes on in the business of oil and gas “exploration” or “mining”.

        This kind of science is usually WAY way over the heads of average people…It’s over the heads of most engineers, who spend years supposedly learning it in universities. It’s only a few doctoral level, brilliant people that understand this stuff, myself completely excluded!!! LOL I only know the surface of what’s going on there…from basic physics and chemistry classes and knowing what the laws that GOVERN all matter and mass are. It’s not a religious debate either; this is simple math. Very simple math. But when you combine it into system dynamics, it gets very, very complex and abstract. That’s where the general population inserts their fingers into their noses and start looking for pencils to chew on. 🙂

    Strontium 90 doesn’t just accumulate in bones. It also accumulates in breast tissue. The fallout of strontium 90 from the atmospheric tests began the breast cancer boom. Whole-body-count testing at nuke plants show that every women who grew up in our culture has a spike of strontium 90 at her breasts. They can’t get it out of the milk supply. Interestingly, breast cancer rates dropped at the half life period of strontium 90.

  • Helpfulhippy

    It is understood that the CCCP used subterranean nuclear detonations to create massive underground storage caverns for natural gas storage. Colour me crazy, but maybe we should be considering some type of similar idea for the Fukushima filth.(tunnel under and detonate) Nukes got us into this, perhaps they can save us too. If that were to work, the next thing to do is prosecute any freak that had anything to do with this, as well as other violators of nuclear safeguards. Oh yeah, ban the use of fissionable fuel while we’re at it.

    • CC

      Sounds good to me, Crazy! We’re still confronted by that little problem of location: Fukushima was built on a known fault line, right on the coast. How’s that for great planning? Still, I like your basic idea. Maybe it’s possible to set off one or more nukes to open the fault far enough to allow it to swallow the power plant. First, a way must be devised to shield the ocean from the nuclear materials that are currently flowing into it at obscene levels, and to ensure that, once the genie has been put in a bottle, no more radiation can escape. That would have to be an ongoing project, one that would take decades, if not a century or more, to accomplish. From the initial shielding of the ocean, to nuking the fault line and burying the power plant, to the ongoing program to keep the genie in its bottle, ought to be a global effort, since the damage being done to the air, the ocean, sea-life, coastal life on the North American continent, and the global food supply–at a time of increasing population, affects the entire world.

    • Kevin Schmidt

      The Bible was plagiarized from older myths and fairy tales.

    • CC

      Please, try to focus–AND STAY ON TOPIC! We’re not discussing something “like a mountain” being tossed into the Pacific; we’re discussing the one-two punch of a natural disaster, the earthquake/tsunami that struck and set in motion the man-made disaster-in-waiting, a massive nuclear power plant built on a known fault line AND the sea coast (location, location, location!). Don’t get me wrong; I’m not anti-religious–quite the contrary. Neither do I see the End of Days everywhere I look. When it comes, we’ll ALL know it. We can’t stop it, and we can’t hasten it; the fact is, we can’t do anything about it whatsoever. My advice to you: relax! Live out your life instead of worrying about how and when it will end. Since the days following the Crucifixion people have lived in terror, believing that the End is here, and it hasn’t happened yet. Chances are that, when it does come, you’ll already be gone. Live a good and happy life, remain faithful to the tenets of your faith, and leave the rest to the One with the ultimate authority. Only the Father knows when the end is to be, remember? That’s in the gospel. Any attempt to pinpoint a given date, month, year, or age, especially by relying on scripture (Revelation) is mere fortune-telling–a sin.

    I don’t get the focus on Fukushima. Compared to other sources, the accident at Fukushima has put less radioactive material (both by volume and activity) in the environment in 2 years then global coal combustion does in just 4 months. Distrust the NRC and the industry all you want when it comes to regulation, the fact coal is regulated at all for the radwaste it dumps into waterways and out of its smokestacks. Articles like these are like gun legislation articles that focus on BB guns yet care less about felons able to buy high power, high capacity assault rifles without ID. Bizarre… I’m sure the fossil fuel shills will join in and say it’s nothing to worry about and we should focus on one of the 60 some odd nuke plants instead of the over 600 coal stations in the country.

    God is love. This simple tenant has caused more killing of those who spread it than any other teaching they may have done. It causes this because loving someone more than yourself would put an end to greed and powermongering. It would also cause you to (us all) see how petty these things are. Ensuring that your fellow is provided for before yourself and practicing this in all areas of your life removes the self. We do not do this due to fear. Fear that our own needs will not be met. That is the simplest definition of God. Love not of yourself but selfless love of others.

I guess he only predicted the end of his world and after 3 tries to get money from his followers he disappeared ? there is so much “Mis- information” and ” Could” or “Predicted” but not many facts. Liquids are usually measured by volume not by Weight if 400 tones of rods are to be moved why Claim 300 tons of water is escaping each week etc how diluted will that be in one of the biggest oceans in the world?

  • Rick Green

    This map is a huge fake. You can check radiation monitoring levels real time and, for example, Olympia WA & Gresham OR are always very low. And I was at the Oregon coast last week and there were healthy, fat, and lazy sea lions and flapping pelicans everywhere. And hoards of sea birds all along the coast.
    Don’t get me wrong – I’m not happy with the world’s nuclear accidents: Three Mile Island – that was going on when I majored in Physics and lived in Portland. And of course Chernobyl – not cool. My friends in Sweden were way concerned. And I live downstream from the leaky radioactive waste barrels at Hanford. Now Fukushima. We keep dumping more radiation into the environment. No wonder we keep raising the safe background limits! But seriously – tanning beds are really increasing melanoma cancer rates. Flying across the country is something like a chest X-ray’s worth of radiation. People don’t even question when they receive needless CTs and X-rays, many of which are prescribed by doctors that have no clue of the risks. And I cringe when I see sun worshippers and sun burns. What a crazy thing to subject your skin to!
    If you want to read something interesting, wiki the Trojan plant just north or Portland. It was shut down and demolished and boy are we happy for that. But we are lucky we can rely more on hydroelectricity albeit at the cost of decreased salmon runs. We have to sometimes barge the salmon past the dams! For the rest of the world that really needs nuclear to power their cities – good luck. It’s damn risky business. Everything runs on electricity now…

    This is frustrating because if you look into each of the 28 signs, you find they are mostly meaningless or unrelated to Fukushima. 1-4 have nothing to do with Fukushima, and I don’t care if “many are blaming Fukushima” (see #3). Is science a democracy? If enough people believe something that’s false, does that make it true?

    Look into number 6 – “While this may sound alarming, these levels are still lower than those permitted for drinking water,” said Böning. Oh, so the levels are still safe for drinking water (you may be getting more in your drinking water!) but we should still freak out.

    This is a clearly deceptive and fear-mongering article.

    Yes, Fukushima is a problem. Is it a catastophe, no.


    What does religion have to do with Fukushima? Oh wait.. you’re right, God’s Chosen People have to make their nuclear weapons somewhere… oh well, so much for being God’s Chosen People if they have to resort to making nukes to stay in power.

      “Nuclear power plants are the most dangerous things we build.” True, they can be dangerous if you don’t respect them. But when someone actually dies from Fukushima, let me know, I’ll concern myself with the real problems, like Coal power, which is killing people in China as we speak, and you don’t hear anyone fussing about that.

    Note most estimates about Fukushima are dependent upon TEPCO data and since TEPCO has a LONG track record of “twisting” the facts to suit their needs, everything we know about Fukushima is very likely to be “orders of magnitude” worse! – CaptD

    Until independent experts are allowed access to Fukushima site (which includes the waters off Fukushima), we cannot rely on anything we are told by either TEPCO or their Japanese regulators! It is important to remember that the largest shareholders of TEPCO are now the Japanese people since their Government has bailed out TEPCO; so in reality the Japanese Government is now running TEPCO, which calls into question exactly who is running Japan!

    Your right, it is about the radiation in it! Which is pretty much nothing.
    What it amounts to – 15 becquerels of Cs-137 per cubic meter of water (~240 gallons, more than a years worth of drinking water, except it will still get filtered, ergo, less than 15 becquerels) will reach California shores.
    For comparison, a banana has 15 becquerels of K-40.
