There has been little to no coverage in local mainstream media about the radioactive plume from the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, that has now reached the California coastline. While some posts on popular Internet sites have dealt with this extremely important worldwide environmental crisis, they are generally very dismissive of the hazards we face (characteristically pointing to dilution of radioactive effluents, and claiming that the levels “pose no risk”, without delivering any hard facts about concentrations.) We remain blissfully unaware of any of the crucial data. How is radiation measured? What are the units? What effect does exposure to radioactive isotopes have on various body tissues? More importantly, what can we do to protect ourselves from exposure, which accumulates in our bodies over time, and which leads to cancers and other long-term disorders? Read this paper, released 3 years after the the Daiichi Power Plant in Fukushima failed. It is a tragic comedy of errors, lack of communication, and misinformation. How long will it be before we are awakened to the truth about what is already happening on our shores?
I finally found this video. It shows a man with an Inspector Geiger Counter (average cpm about 30) walking on the beach. He demonstrates how the counts are highest near to the water, with counts up to 150 cpm. I have discussed this in a previous blog, and this is the evidence. Experts have predicted that a plume is coming, and this is what it would look like using a Geiger Counter. I will look for future reports, and keep you posted.
