Fact; 150,000 sq. kilometers of the Pacific ocean have been contaminated with Fukushima radiatioactive material. Fukushima is still ‘leaking’ radioactive materials into the air and ocean today. This disaster is not over. It is just beginning.
Bottom line, a HUGE amount of radiation has contaminated all Pacific ocean water from the surface to a depth of 400 foot. The surface of the ocean is where 99.99% of all sea creatures spend their time and get their food. The surface of the ocean is where the radioactive contamination is the worst. The amount of radiation released from Fukushima is unprecedented and the effects will not be fully known for many years, possibly never.
“The liquid releases — I really haven’t had time to even talk about them — but they’ll continue for years and years into the future. ….We already know that the liquid releases are ten times Chernobyl.

200 Bq/m3 = 5.4 pCi/liter. There are 1,000 liters in 1 cubic m3 of ocean water. Any radiation exposure is cumulative, so the fact that the IAEA admits that these nuclear reprocessing plants and accidents did increase the normal background radiation, says something. It used to be that no uranium, cesium or tritium was found in ocean water. Now huge quantities of cesium, uranium, tritium and other toxic contaminants are being found.
The IAEA and pretty much all pro nuclear apologists make the claim that Fukushima released only 10% of the radiation compared to Chernobyl, so using the above figures translates into Fukushima releasing only 1.6 PBq of 137C’s. Anyone with common sense will know is laughably ridiculous, because Fukushima had 3 nuclear reactors melt down, and at least two, possibly three melted through, with corium exiting the reactors and going down into the ground. In addition, at least 3 spent fuel pools burned up, releasing ALL of their ‘hot’ load into the atmosphere.

This same basic fact of “radiation is good for you” by labeling just about everything found as ‘natural background radiation’ applies to the entire nuclear and medical industry, plus government agencies such as the NRC as well. These industries and regulators are little more more than puppets of the nuclear industry due to revolving doors in and out of the nuclear industry from and to these government agencies and medical institutions. Bottom line, they all hold the radioactive glowing ‘line’, that all low level radiation is good for you, unless it kills you in ten minutes and only then is it bad for you, but not for long, because then you will be dead, so you really have NOTHING to worry your head about. Thus, all radiation is safe.
The Atomic Energy Commission was shut down and abolished for the very same corruption, cover ups and secrecy that is happening today. But the corruption of the nuclear industry, the medical industry and government regulators like the NRC remains to this day.
Why else would the EPA and NRC not report and warn people about invisible radiation levels after they rose to unsafe levels in US based foods and drinks after Fukushima? If you don’t believe this can happen in the ‘greatest’ country on Earth, you had better research this subject a little bit further.

The graph above shows radiation in the ocean measured at 100 MILLION BQ per cubic meter. According to TEPCO, the levels of radiation in the ocean have been reduced to 1,000 Bq per cubic meter. The highest levels reached in any ocean were 10 Bq per cubic meter after the Chernobyl accident. Of course, TEPCO seems to minimize and cover up high radiation readings, so if these figures are minimized, we can only wonder what the real radiation figures are.

One actinide infused the spray with an 812 times greater concentration of americium-241 than normal amounts of Am-241 in ambient seawater. The report cited information that sea-spray-blown cesium 137 was found 200 kilometers from the discharge source in the New Hebrides islands in northern Scotland.
We also know that 26,000 higher levels of radiation will bio -concentrate in algae, starting with whatever is found in the ocean water. So the best place to test for radiation from Fukushima is in the Fukushima harbor, using the micro surface layer and dried algae collected there, correct? Now we have a problem Houston…
TEPCO will not allow anyone to do testing closer than 30 miles away. Their own scientists are not allowed to do testing any closer than 5 kilometers from the plant. The only people ‘allowed’ to test for radiation in the harbor of Fukushima is TEPCO, a private, for profit company..Talk about giving the keys to the henhouse to the fox. The company responsible for the biggest nuclear disaster in history is also setting the ‘rules’ for who is ‘allowed’ to test for the radiation contamination that they caused. This is like a murderer telling the police that they can only test for evidence of the crime, at least 30 miles away from the crime scene, and the further away, the better.
Not allowing anyone to test close to Fukushima will greatly reduce the amount of radiation found, and TEPCO knows this.
The radiation containing algae and the heavy, solid radioactive containing elements and actinides are taken out, making the total radiation levels seem even lower, because the only things left will be the gases and lighter than air radioactive elements such as Tritium, which is another name for radioactive Hydrogen. (Yes, triple distilling is THE ONLY method that the pro nuclear IAEA sanctioned scientists use to measure radiation in ocean water.) Does this not sound odd to you?
The EPA recently raised radiation limits in food and drink by HUGE amounts. Why would they be doing this? And this is NOT the first time that this has happened.
This also means no one can sue anyone for any harm or deaths caused, because it is all legal now. Lawsuits will be thrown out of court. Of course, they will NEVER admit that the levels of ‘safe’ radiation used to be 27,000 times lower, and before that, they safe radiation levels used to be ZERO.
Because the nuclear industry will only pay for studies done ‘their way’ and in their chosen spots, it may happen that the average person will never find out the true scope and scale of these nuclear mega disasters. It is actually rather easy to cover up and hide the worst nuclear disaster in history, in plain sight.
