Radioactive Water From Fukushima Is Systematically Poisoning The Entire Pacific Ocean

Fukushima Contamination Pacific Ocean

Right now, a massive amount of highly radioactive water is escaping into the Pacific Ocean from the ruins of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan.  This has been going on all day, every day for more than two years.  The enormous amounts of tritium, cesium and strontium that are being released are being carried by wind, rain and ocean currents all over the northern Hemisphere.  And of course the west coast of the United States is being hit particularly hard.  When you drink water or eat seafood that has been contaminated with these radioactive particles, they can stick around for a very long time.  Over the coming years, this ongoing disaster could potentially affect the health of millions upon millions of people living in the northern hemisphere, and the sad thing is that a lot of those people will never even know the true cause of their health problems.

For a long time, the Japanese government has been trusting Tepco to handle this crisis, but now it has become abundantly clear that Tepco has no idea what they are doing.  In fact, the flow of radioactive water has gotten so bad that authorities in Japan are now calling it an “emergency”

Highly radioactive water seeping into the ocean from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is creating an “emergency” that the operator is struggling to contain, an official from the country’s nuclear watchdog said on Monday.

This contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier, is rising toward the surface and is exceeding legal limits of radioactive discharge, Shinji Kinjo, head of a Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) task force, told Reuters.

The amount of water that we are talking about is absolutely enormous.  According to Yahoo, 400 metric tons of water is being pumped into the basements of destroyed buildings at Fukushima every single day…

The utility pumps out some 400 metric tons a day of groundwater flowing from the hills above the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant into the basements of the destroyed buildings, which mixes with highly irradiated water that is used to cool the reactors in a stable state below 100 degrees Celsius.

Tepco is trying to prevent groundwater from reaching the plant by building a “bypass” but recent spikes of radioactive elements in sea water has prompted the utility to reverse months of denials and finally admit that tainted water is reaching the sea.

And of course all of that water has to go somewhere.  For a long time Tepco tried to deny that it was getting into the ocean, but now they are  finally admitting that it is

Tepco said on Friday that a cumulative 20 trillion to 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium had probably leaked into the sea since the disaster. The company said this was within legal limits.

Tritium is far less harmful than cesium and strontium, which have also been released from the plant. Tepco is scheduled to test strontium levels next.

40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean?

And that is what they are publicly admitting.  The reality is probably far worse.

And all of that tritium is going to be around for a very long time.  You see, the truth is that tritium has a half-life of about 12 years.

But strontium is even worse.  Strontium can cause bone cancer and it has a half-life of close to 29 years.

And now Tepco is admitting that extremely dangerous levels of strontium have been escaping from Fukushima and getting into the underground water.  And of course the underground water flows out into the Pacific Ocean…

Tepco said in late June that it had detected the highly toxic strontium-90, a by-product of nuclear fission that can cause bone cancer if ingested, at levels 30 times the permitted rate.

The substances, which were released by the meltdowns of reactors at the plant in the aftermath of the huge tsunami of March 2011, were not absorbed by soil and have made their way into underground water.

Subsoil water usually flows out to sea, meaning these two substances could normally make their way into the ocean, possibly affecting marine life and ultimately impacting humans who eat sea creatures.

Cesium has an even longer half-life than strontium does.  It has a half life of about 30 years, and according to samples that were taken about a month ago levels of cesium at Fukushima have been spiking dramatically…

Samples taken on Monday showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 were more than 90 times higher than they were on Friday, at 9000 becquerels per litre, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) revealed.

Levels of caesium-137 stood at 18 000 becquerels per litre, 86 times higher than at the end of last week, the utility said.

“We still don’t know why the level of radiation surged, but we are continuing efforts to avert further expansion of contamination,” a Tepco spokesperson stated.

When cesium gets into your body, it can do a tremendous amount of damage.  The following is an excerpt from a NewScientist article that described what happens when cesium and iodine enter the human body…

Moreover the human body absorbs iodine and caesium readily. “Essentially all the iodine or caesium inhaled or swallowed crosses into the blood,” says Keith Baverstock, former head of radiation protection for the World Health Organization’s European office, who has studied Chernobyl’s health effects.

Iodine is rapidly absorbed by the thyroid, and leaves only as it decays radioactively, with a half-life of eight days. Caesium is absorbed by muscles, where its half-life of 30 years means that it remains until it is excreted by the body. It takes between 10 and 100 days to excrete half of what has been consumed.

And it is important to keep in mind that it has been estimated that each spent fuel pool at the Fukushima nuclear complex could have 24,000 times the amount of cesium that was produced by the nuclear bomb that the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War 2.

Overall, the Fukushima nuclear facility originally contained a whopping 1760 tons of nuclear material.

That is a massive amount of nuclear material.  Chernobyl only contained 180 tons.

And of course the crisis at Fukushima could be made even worse at any moment by a major earthquake.  In fact, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit northern Japan on Sunday.

This is a nightmare that has no end.  Every single day, massive amounts of highly radioactive water from Fukushima is systematically poisoning the entire Pacific Ocean.  The damage that is being done is absolutely incalculable.

Please share this article with as many people as you can.  The mainstream media does not seem to want to talk about this, but it is a matter that is extremely important to every man, woman and child living in the northern hemisphere of our planet.

    What do all of you think about this?

    Michael

    • LA

      Michael,

      This is absolutely amazing. I am so glad you have put this out. I am sending this to all of my family and friends. There is no excuse for this. And the oceans turned red like blood…we are in trouble.

    • Graham

      Three questions:-

      1)
      How many reactors within the USA are of the exact same design?

      2)
      How close are those reactors to known fault lines?

      3)
      Who is contracted to secure and monitor the reactors?

    • Jodi

      Michael, my family was in the Seattle area last year and part of the plan was to go to the ocean. The one thing that we noticed that there was foam everywhere. Is that caused by radioactive water? I don’t know, maybe foam is what happens out west, I grew up going to the east coast. It is amazing how K put it. We stick our nose in everybody’s business but we can’t intervene on this situation? And yet the media refuses to ask these kind of questions.

      • Derpanese

        Foam is normal. -_- Happens everywhere.

  • Rodster

    It’s a sad of affairs when the govt utility tries to coverup something this deadly to humans. It just goes to show how govt’s really don’t care about their citizens. We are seeing this more and more where govt officials just go out of their way to lie to the public.

    Forunately people are waking up and are pushing back around the world.

  • K

    Let me put it this way. If it came out of the pacific or the gulf of mexico, I do not eat it. I also no longer touch produce that comes from the west coast. I have seen the radiation levels in the rainfall, on the west coast. This Country sticks its’ nose in everybody’s business. But someplace where we should intervene, we do nothing. If it is not obvious the Japanese can not handle this situation, then I do not know how much more proof there could be. Cancer rates throughout the pacific basin, are going to see a sizable increase.

    • Derpanese

      You are so very right on this that this is the ONE thing the US should meddle with.

  • Dave Webb

    On a positive note, the planet may be uninhabitable before the supposed aliens take over.

    I think Turmeric is a strong anti-radiation substance and it is readily used in East Indian cooking and in all their foods. The key is going to be foods that actually do help the body when radiation is apparently going to be a fact of life.
    Legends have it that a nuclear war occurred many thousands of years ago between China and India. Many died. Enough survived to repopulate the region.
    The losers were the “gods” of the region and even those as far away as Egypt. The smart ones left the planet. The others died here of radiation clouds over the entire region.
    5,000 years later most of the temples and the gods are gone. The human population has survived the “war” and moved on.
    I find it interesting that in the early old testament books there is direct contact with “God” and He moves in very terrible destructive ways. After Moses, the contact is through the temples of the Jews and the Ark of the Covenant. There is very little personal physical contact. So I have to wonder if this is not a repeat of something that happened 5,000 years ago and the “gods” all abandoned this place for safer havens.
    The Hopi Indians of our Southwest have a similar tale. In this tale, they moved underground as the guests of a sentient species of giant Ants. They were kept alive underground for 500 years and then released back into the outer world.

    Also I find it interesting that our ancestors in Europe may have lived in caves. Caves that were insulated against radiation clouds.
    MY point is only that this might not be the first time that the human species has faced extinction from nuclear sources.
    I am sure the “leaders” are all ready planning for just such an event.
    The last time according to these same legends the world took about 500 years to recover.
    These descriptions by the Samarians of preflood times indicate they had extremely long lives. On a ratio of 1 day equals 1,000 of our years. So they had advanced medicine and advanced programming of the cells.
    Just when it is thought safe to ignore all of this, we find we have 46 chromosomes instead of 48. Two of which show signs of dramatic alteration. They are two chromosomes that make us human instead of ape. I cannot help but think the Bible correct in the original lifespan of 900 plus years. And after the flood, we are suddenly living less than 120 years.
    With a radioactive polution planet wide, we will be lucky to live less than 40 years in the future.
    Our genetically altered children will be heavy with mutations.That is both good and bad but mostly bad.
    Like I said, the positive thing is we may have s++t in our own nest to the point that no one wants to colonize this place.

    Anybody watching will know Tepco has been lying about what has been happing at Fukushima since day one. If they are admitting major problems you can bet ss was said in the article the real situation is far worse. Meanwhile where are the tree hugging enviro’s? We have a real environmental crisis and they’re dug in next to the same beer hall as the so called peace movement. if your on the west coast and not watching the radiation levels you better start. You better watch where your food comes from because when the MSN starts talking about it you’re going to be already glowing.

  • earnhart

    About two years ago along the coast of Oceanside, California people began seeing bright blue lights radiating from the ocean at night. Crowds came each night to watch this new development and were perplexed having never seen anything like this before. Authorities told concerned citizens that it was algae. To my knowledge the media never investigated further than the algae story .

    • Derpanese

      It IS algae.
      ….
      Radioactive stuff does not really glow… -_____-

  • Howard Treesong

    Every day we are being pelted with stories about how bad and dangerous the terrorists are and would we please be so kind as to be scared? The NSA needs more powers to read through your email.

    At the same time, half the world is being poisoned directly by the fall out of the worst industrial accident in the history of the species, and people sit around shrugging their shoulders.

    We are doomed as a species because we are forever distracted by the inane and the trivial while the true dramas of our lives are not acknowledged, let alone addressed.

    • Graham

      Good post.

      The American war on terrorism is ultimately a war against its own people. Any activity beyond its borders is an extension of the same psychotic mindset and history proves who America operates hand in hand with.. at all times. Pavlov’s dog!

      Nothing stops it because the system in place is designed to corrupt and furnish those who have become a part of it through material rewards and bribery.

      What happens to those who have a humane conscience and refuse to take part? Welcome to the all encompassing “matrix”. Created and strengthening its grip one piece at a time. No accidents here I’m afraid.

      You are dealing with a mindset that few understand, let alone acknowledge because far too many are busy playing out their own agenda that their perceived masters gave to them.

      The madness and insanity defies belief, but society in general considers itself “normal”. Why is the “new” normal diametrically opposed to what was considered “normal” for decades and centuries prior?

    Sounds true: — Opn 8:8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

    Opn 8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died;

  • k9luv

    Mike,
    Where did you get the map? Is it radiation leakage or for something else?

  • Loscar

    Michael, very interesting your text. It´s really a scary situation with a lot of political, economical and social implications. But where did you get the map that ilustrates your article? I tried to found it on the NOAA website, but wasn´st lucky. Did you create this image with some NOAA´s data? Would you please clarify me? Tnk u very much. Loscar (from Brasil)

  • Anon

    an american company GE bult the fukushima plant, they know it had “built in” flaws and said nothing, this is one case where we should have helped out more and now it is probably to late.

  • Joshua Cuyos

    Uh, so should we be expecting to see some new mutants in the future…?

  • Beate

    “Right now,” map isn’t accurate – it says at the top it’s from 2011. What does that do to the rest of yr statements?

  • LeslieDonsen

    Nobody’s paying attention to what you said. I saw the larger image and what was being measured was centimeters.

    ” Filled colors show maximum computed tsunami amplitude in cm during 24 hours of wave propagation.”

  • BigBadBoss

    Good job Japan! You’ve poisoned our water!

  • RPT34

    Would you stop blaming everything on the Jews and look at the bigger picture? God says in the Bible that He will bless those who bless the Jews and curse those who curse the Jews. I think we have a strong possibility that the United States is being punished in part because of our government’s attitude.

  • Err Amerika

    Incredible post. Thank you !

  • eli says no

    Why are you using that graphic? It isn’t a measure of radiation but of tsunami wave heights. Its a bit dodgy to use it I this context.

  • Biotechasia

    Definitely a cover up. Search NOAA website “radioactivity Japan ocean” gave no hit, while Google images readily identified the photo as “Fukiyama radioactivity.”

  • LukasAldsmosser

    THIS IS FAKE!! Shame on theTruthWins!!

  • Grips

    We are not doomed as a species, because species is just another superficial aspect of what we really are. Maybe we are doomed to experience life from the narrow perspective afforded to us by our biological circumstances.

  • Esteban Barila

    Hey, that graphic is absolutely wrong, It’s NOAA’s map of sea level after the earthquake. It clearly reads “cm” (centimeters, a measure of longuitude) in the references.
