Is the Floating Japanese Tsunami Debris Radioactive Or Hazardous?

West Coast Report in video above. 

Hawaii Report in video above; includes information on plastics from Japan going into birds and fish. 

One thing is known about plastic and probably also about the styrofoam floating around in the ocean; it all absorbs lots of chemicals and heavy metals. Wouldn’t this fact include radioactive elements from Fukushima as well? After all, most of the elements coming out of Fukushima were ‘heavy metals’.

Remember that the Fukushima mega disaster did not happen until well after the tsunami, after all that debris had washed out into the ocean, down wind of Fukushima. 80% of the radiation from Fukushima went over the ocean, and also settled on the debris field. 

Once plastic and styrofoam enters the water, the ocean breaks down the chunks into smaller pieces over time, which get ingested in birds, fish, etc. The heavy metals and chemicals go along with the plastic into the wildlife. This much is fact, as pointed to in the Hawaii video. So no matter where the radioactive debris ends up, it all goes into the fish and birds, no matter what. Once the plastic is in the fish, it goes up the food chain to humans. 

Fish bio concentrate radiation just like all other animals, insects and birds. 

Animals And Plants; Low Level Radiation Effects

To claim that ‘no radiation’ will come from Japan to the US via the debris is ignoring reality. The only question is; how much, and in which ways will it impact fisheries, wild animals on sea shore and humans at the top of the food chain? It may take years to see the full impact, once the debris hits the Western shores of the USA

From NOAA:
“The Japanese government estimated that the tsunami swept about 5 million tons of debris into the ocean, but that 70 percent sank off shore, leaving 1.5 million tons floating. There is no estimate of how much of that debris is still floating, now that it has been at sea for more than a year.
We do know that the debris is no longer in a mass. Rather, many items are scattered across an area of the North Pacific that is roughly three times the size of the continental United States.
NOAA anticipates that in the late fall and throughout the winter of 2012-2013, seasonal changes in North Pacific winds and currents will cause marine debris of mixed types to wash ashore on western coastlines of North America. Hawaii can also expect to see mixed debris during this time, since debris will likely travel west toward the Main Hawaiian Island with ocean currents. 
This debris will likely intermittently scatter along the coast, as was observed in 2011-2012. These expectations are based on general debris behavior, model outputs, and patterns in at-sea sightings reports that all point to debris being widely dispersed over large areas.
The NOAA model shows that bulk of the debris is likely still dispersed north of the Main Hawaiian Islands and east of Midway Atoll. Beachgoers may notice an increase in debris on beaches over many years, in addition to marine debris that normally washes up, depending on where ocean currents carry it.”
“A joint EPA and California-led interagency guideline to be put into effect stipulates that most floating or ‘beached’ debris from Japan registering under 2 millirem per hour will not be considered a radioactive source.” 
(2 millirem equals 20 microsieverts)
The nuclear industry has been polluting the oceans with radiation since the 1940’s, non stop. The nuclear marketing agency IAEA claim that all of this radiation dumped in the ocean does not cause any harm to human beings or sea creatures. 

If that is true, then why are there stories like this one coming out?  “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… especially compared to 10 – 15 years ago…

The above 1 hour video gives much more information about Fukushima. From one of those interviewed in the video; 

“Yet, even though these are ionized materials that are not going to be washed off by ocean wave activity, we have representatives and state officials here in the United States who are downplaying the potential contamination and radioactivity in the tsunami debris. And that’s one thing we’re very concerned about.”

Japan Plans To Evacuate 40 Million Citizens; Russia Shocked; via A Green Road

Japan came very close to evacuating Tokyo, and some experts say that it should still be evacuated, because it was hit hard by radiation right after #3 exploded and released a massive amount of radiation and plutonium from MOX fuel, which is 1 million times more toxic than uranium fuel by itself. 

In summary, just to be safe, do not touch or handle and debris that is washed ashore, especially if you do not have a radiation detector with you.

One thought on “Is the Floating Japanese Tsunami Debris Radioactive Or Hazardous?

  1. My letter to Greenpeace USA:

    This is a personal message to Greenpeace USA and what your doctrine has meant to me for as long as I can remember, now I need your help.
    Since the earthquake and tsunami-damaged Japan's nuclear plants and with the radiation spreading over this past two years and our Government seems not concerned, and takes Japan's word that all is “A OK”.
    What would it take with all the Russian problems that you're having to do a study for America? The logic behind it is overwhelming, from the drop & cover in the early days to Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, the SL-1 Accident, and now Fukushima Daiichi which worries us.
    I can muster thousands of supporters hoping that you can see the ramifications, not as a political statement, but as a supporter of world events. Please don't be condescending, we need answers.
    Thank you for your time!
