The map below 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 amount 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.

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?

    Oh, so global warming and El Niño are the cover-up and Fukushima is the real problem?I am reaching for a box of aluminum foil to make a pair of foil shoes to go with the hat. You might want to as well.

    Please don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. In the very first example, the author repeats observations made by the U.S. Geological Survey. The 2012 USGS press release cited by this writer does not say ANYWHERE that the loss of fur or hair in polar bears is due to Fukushima radiation. The writer is engaging in irresponsible and unethical “journalism” by trying to make that connection without peer-reviewed and published scientific research to back up his claim. Remember this: anyone can write a blog, create a web site, manipulate statistics, use photoshop to manipulate a picture, take statements out of context, etc., so the lesson is to be constantly vigilant with a healthy dose of skepticism about what you read (and choose to repost).

    You had my full attention until you brought up the bible and lost all credibility. You may have well just said the great ManBearPig predicted it all.

    be sure to keep you iodine levels up i use a sea weed extract i hope its not from the pacific lol

    Don’t blame Japan – they are the victims of DC’s military actions with HAARP ! THAT is what deliberately caused this disaster – it was an attack on Japan by DC. And this report only touches on the fish and sealife and not the terrible fallout in the air that is falling all over the northern west, that has shown up in the Calif cow milk and crops. And the fallout goes all the way up through Montana, Oregon, Washington into Canada.The fallout is exceptionally high in those areas, but also has been found to be high in most of the midwestern states (Neb., Wyoming, Nev., Ok., and even into the Dakotas. Some fallout has also been found in the North east, and mid-eastern states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Penn all the way down to Virginia. The only state not detecting any radiation is the Peninsula of Florida and that is because it IS a Peninsula where the air constantly changes over the state from one body of water to the other.

    I am as upset as anyone about Fukushima– but this article is a big steaming pile of BS. Half truths, outright lies, fabrications. C’mon, the basics of journalism, cite your sources, prove what you say.

    It is very confusing that David Suzuki says that there is no danger from contamination.

    • David Suzuki also says that chemtrails don’t exist. Go figure.

    Is this what “going out with a whimper” is all about?

    1986 Chernobyl — A single uranium powered nuclear plant without plutonium (MOX) fuel and NO spent fuel pools, located far from any ocean in the middle of what was then the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine exploded and burned for ten days until an army of half a million “liquidators” buried it and entombed it in a concrete sarcophagus. It sent a plume of radioactive particles 2 kilometers into the atmosphere — equivalent in toxicity to 400 Hiroshima bombs. It contaminated forty percent of Europe and Central Asia. A thousand kilometers in all directions are permanently contaminated. It has killed a million people and destroyed the DNA of millions more.

    2011 Fukushima — Three uranium and plutonium powered nuclear plants and four large spent fuel pools, located on the shores of Eastern Japan exploded, melted and two hundred tons of radioactive fuel burned up into the atmosphere and burned down into the groundwater aquifer that empties into the Pacific Ocean. For over two and a half years an army of ten thousand down on their luck contract workers have tried to mop it up and then filter and save the mop water. It didn’t work. It can never be stopped. It sent a plume of radioactive particles 5 kilometers into the atmosphere — equivalent in toxicity to 6000+ Hiroshima bombs. It has contaminated fifty percent of Japan and some of East Asia. Three thousand kilometers of the Pacific are permanently contaminated. It has begun to kill millions of people in the northern hemisphere and destroy the DNA of billions more.

    Meanwhile, Americans are fed this in the mainstream press:

    It’s unclear how the radiation leaks near Fukushima Dai-ichi compare with those from Chernobyl.

    …leading health scientists say the radiation from Fukushima has been relatively harmless.

    Radiation from Fukushima disaster not an issue for Florida tuna fans

    …news reports have exaggerated the potential health effects of the radiation.

    No fish. No birds. Hardly a sign of life at all.

    …in March and April this year, only silence and desolation surrounded his boat, Funnel Web, as it sped across the surface of a haunted ocean.

    The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

    “After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

    “We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

    “I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

    fuck japan.

      It’s got nothing to do with “Japan”. Look for the origins of the problem in human greed and envy translated into the control mechanisms imposed on all of us by the multinational corporations and energy giants. General Electric is in on the Fukushima disaster, as are many others – all controlled by bankers and their elite string pullers. Nuclear energy was never an intelligent option. But the greed heads did it anyway on the public’s dime. Do we really need all that energy to survive? Hardly!

      • Bucko

        Well dig this. The three principle engineers responsible for designing and overseeing the GE MK 1 boiling water reactor (all of the reactors at Fukishima were of this type) resigned in unison in 1975 from GE, as their engineering backgrounds had convinced them this design would lead to a “100% chance of a catastrophe within 50 years”. Guess what they did? They all joined the anti nuclear movement. Think about this for a minute. This men were highly paid professionals. And they walked away and took up a position to fight their life’s work, to date. If this doesn’t shake you up, nothing will

          Wow…indeed, one can’t help but be taken aback by such information. Thanks!
