Fukushima’s Pummelling Of Pacific Ocean Brings ‘Invisible Blanket Of Death’ To US Shores
“We have a very very serious problem. Nobody apparently believes it to be so, but my guess is that the folks at the highest levels of our world governments are preparing for the societal breakdown once this ‘cat’ gets out of the proverbial bag. 20 years? Who knows? But one thing is clear: As the Pacific Ocean dies, so do the rest of the world’s oceans in time. The onslaught of the radiation is never ending in human lifespans.”
Since we last published an update on Fukushima death in the Pacific Ocean back on August 26th, we continue to run across heart-breaking reports of what’s happening to animals, birds and ocean life all across the Pacific. Through stories such as: “Skyrocketing Deaths On The West Coast” from ENENews, “Fukushima: The End of Mankind?” – the story quoted above from Dennis Simino at Veterans Truth Network and “Animals Delirious, Disoriented Up And DownWest Coast,” also from ENENews, we see that things are not getting better and in fact, according to many, our own problems have only just begun. To quote one Canadian Parliament Minister on Fukushima, ‘an invisible blanket of death covers everything’.
While a look at the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center (NETC) for Ft. Wayne, Indiana doesn’t show the whopping 1,326 CPM as seen in the chart above, we still see the high coming in at the mind-boggling CPM of 777 in BETA particles as seen in the 1st screenshot below. Again, please keep in mind that between 5 to 20 CPM is the normal background radiation levels and anything above 50 is considered an ‘alert’. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th screenshots from NETC show the radiation levels for Washington DC, Fort Smith, Arkansas and Mobile, Alabama all at extremely high and dangerous CPM levels.
Is Fukushima responsible for all of the horrific sea, bird and animal wildlife that are dying off in the Pacific Ocean and on US shores right now? With the mainstream media still largely silent on Fukushima, we have to take a look at what local TV and radio stations are saying. We see below why the MSM stays silent. First, from Fukushima Watch.:
Whales have been dropping like flies in the Gulf of Alaska. Approximately nine whale carcasses were sited in late May and early June. Now, fisherman have spotted five more decomposing whales, a fin whale and four humpbacks, to add to the death toll.
No one knows what caused the death of the whales; however, scientists are narrowing in on the kernel of truth as they weed out possibilities. What scientists do know is that all the whales appear to have died around the same time.
The mainstream media has cited a rise in ocean temperatures and acidity as possible causes of the whale deaths while ignoring the presence of cesium-137, a radioactive isotope with a 30 year half-life released from Fukushima.
One possible explanation that has been downplayed by the mainstream media is that the radiation leaking from the Fukushima power plant, including the radioactive isotope cesium-137, has contaminated and warmed the ocean. Scientists predicted that radiation leaking from the power plant should hit North American coasts by early 2014. The rise in whale deaths just so happens to coincide with the Fukushima radiation making landfall on the West Coast.
Some scientists have tried to annul these worries by claiming that the radiation from the Fukushima power plant has become so diluted in the Pacific Ocean that it does not pose a serious health threat to the coast.
Yet the recent rise in whale deaths shows otherwise. In addition, exposure to even small traces of radiation can have an accumulative effect over time. Furthermore, the radiation from the Fukushima power plant has not stopped leaking into the Pacific Ocean. As long as hundred of tons of radiation leak into the ocean everyday, the West Coast will continue to be bombarded with radiation.
Reports from local news stations read like the ongoing opening scenes from an apocalyptic disaster movie:
KION, Aug 13, 2015: “I noticed them out here. And I looked over here and seen all kinds of dead little fish over there,” said fisherman Tucker Bergerson. Bergerson fishes in the Monterey Bay every day. He like others who make a living out in the open waters, know something isn’t right in the bay.
KION, Aug 13, 2015: [Kamyar Shareghi, tour guide:] “There have been fish dying, there have been a bunch of birds dead in the water as well. Some of the marine mammals like the sea lions, seals and the otters, they’ll have seizures and they will be delirious like dementia.”
NOAA, Aug 20, 2015: a common murre die-off was reported… along the Alaska Peninsula… unusual numbers in nearshore areas with many appearing weak and approachable by skiff. We do not know whether the bird mortalities were related to whatever killed the whales.
KING 5 News, Aug 21, 2015: In addition to whales, Alaska’s seen dead walruses and a lot of dead or disoriented birds…
Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium – Local Environmental Observer, Aug 3, 2015: Moose behavior – Found a dead moose in the lake… [others] said that the moose the day before was swimming in circles and struggling… We really don’t know why this moose was in distress or what sickness it may have. I’ve been talking to residents and other people they think it maybe a parasite that went to the brain…
Meanwhile, we learn that nothing is ever going to change…at least not for the better…the Fukushima fountain has not been turned off and there are no plans of doing so. Will Fukushima lead to the end of humanity?
It’s like a roaring fire in your living room, only you realize you don’t have a fireplace. Then it gets rather sticky, if not downright soberingly dire. Our inaction is the foreword to our very epitaph if we shrug our shoulders and decide it’s not our problem, or too big for us to worry about. If this is the best humankind can do in such a circumstance as this, maybe it is best we just went to our demise, oblivious, ignorant in most cases, and woefully incomprehending of the probability that it all ends here all too soon, for our children and their children, if we do nothing. And there may be nothing we can do.
