The evidence is clear: Fukushima radiation is still tearing up West Coast of USA
As cleanup crews gear themselves up to begin the treacherous task of removing 400 tons of spent fuel from the Fukushima Daiichi Reactor No. 4 in the coming weeks, reports continue to flood in showing that radiation from the stricken plant is still causing major environmental damage all over the world.
Particularly on the West Coast of the U.S., a multitude of strange animal deaths, high radiation readings and other recent anomalies suggest that the Fukushima disaster is far from over. It is simply ludicrous, in other words, for anyone to suggest at this point that these Fukushima woes are dwindling, as fresh evidence suggests that quite the opposite is true.
A recent report by Michael Snyder over at TheTruthWins.com highlights 28 signs that the U.S. West Coast is still being torn up by nuclear radiation from Fukushima. Many of these signs include strange illnesses and mass deaths among sea creatures and other animals, as well as high radiation readings from dozens of monitoring stations.
"Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean," writes Snyder about this one major sign. "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."
Another obvious sign is the recent mass migration of radioactive debris the size of California across the Pacific Ocean. BBC News in the U.K. reported last year that literally millions of tons of radioactive debris had begun traveling across the Pacific Ocean, and that some of it had already impacted Hawaii and even the West Coast.
There has also been a series of strange animal deaths recently, including masses of sea lions, sockeye salmon and other sea creatures washing up on the shore. Many of the polar bears, seals and walruses observed along the Alaska coastline have also been found to have major fur loss and open sores, both of which are indicative of radiation poisoning.
Then we have the scientific reports that claim radioactive water will continue to impact the U.S. West Coast for many years to come, potentially doubling in strength over the next five or six years. Plankton, bluefin tuna and other sea life collected between Hawaii and California are already testing high for radiation, and these levels are expected to continue increasing.
"Look at what's going on now: They're dumping huge amounts of radioactivity into the ocean -- no one expected that in 2011," stated Daniel Hirsch, a nuclear policy lecturer at the University of California-Santa Cruz recently to Global Security Newswire. "We could have large numbers of cancer from ingestion of fish."
There will most certainly be a major uptick in cancer rates due to the Fukushima incident, as the Japan Meteorological Agency's Meteorological Research Institute estimates that some 60 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and strontium are being dumped into the Pacific Ocean every single day. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) also admits that as much as 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have been released into the Pacific since the disaster began.
Those who still say that the Chernobyl disaster was worse than Fukushima may also want to consider that a Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution study conducted in October 2011 concluded that Fukushima had already released up to 100 times more radiation into the environment than Chernobyl at that time. Today, this amount is likely astronomically higher, especially when you take into account all the airborne radioactive plumes that have been detected billowing across the ocean and over U.S. soil.

The problems with Fukushima seems like a never ending story. The last inline if you ignore all the lies that has been surrounding this catastrophe since start. Now Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant workers have yet another problem on their hands. They say they found cracks in the brace supporting an exhaust pipe.

well when the birth defects for the U.S west coast triple we will see who is telling the truth

@Termite - I think you have been mislead with some of your information, for example the nuclear tests done at sea were deep within mineral deposits on the sea floor that melt creating its own sarcophagus, and with an explosion a lot of it is consumed at once, the sea is not supposed to be in contact with any radioactive fuel source afterwards. Whereas at the Fukushima situation they are dealing with highly agitated radioactive fuel rods that are not depleted, which may or may not be in direct contact with sea water. Also it is not so much the concentration of radiation in water that is the problem but the type of isotopes present. If the dangerous radioactive isotopes like cesium 147 are present still, you still have a health risk. Small amounts might seem insignificant but over time they accumulate in the food chain, it is not the non-risk that you perceive it to be.
I don't think the proud Japanese would be admitting leaking radiation into the sea if it was as insignificant as you say, it would have been passed over by the media like they have tried to do up until now, but so many people in the scientific community know how dangerous it is that it is no longer a viable media taboo. The whole agenda of ignoring Fukushima was to prevent global alienation against the $Trillion nuclear energy industry, so any bad press would be quashed unless it was unpreventable. People are easily distracted from things like this with the media's subversion tactics: "look at Syria", "now look at Egypt", "look at Libya" while when it comes to the really important news "nothing to see here!", "move along please", "look over there instead". Its all bullshit to distract you from where you are really getting screwed... and for the entire planet for the last year Fukushima that has been screwing us, except this time they have ignored a gigantic catastrophe, mankind's worst ever disaster and it threatens to effect all life on the planet but they still don't want to admit the extent of it. We had best hope there are no more accidents when they try to remove the rods because the release from a snapped rod would make it thousands of times more devastating in an instant

The guy, Michael Snyder, that you quoted in this article as having said that the west coast is being torn up, said on live TV in an interview that he would admit that the worst forecast radiation measurements that could be expected if this spill continued for 5 more years, once it reached the west coast, would be the same amount of radiation that we would be exposed to if we stood 4 meters from a small digital watch for 5 years. And he also conceded that a laptop computer release 165,000 times more radiation than an olympic swimming pool filled with water gathered from the west coast after 10 years of this continued leak. He admitted that the dilution caused by the largest ocean on earth would bring it down to lower levels than the ambient radiation emitted my a bioluminescent coral. There have been over 300 Hydrogen bomb nuclear explosions in the pacific ocean since 1953 that released almost 4 quadrillion times the amount of radiation that Fukushima would release if it were NEVER repaired and allowed to deplete itself. These numbers and measurements are not difficult to find and calculate. All this information can easily be found online.
