This sounds like a very serious situation.

Due to the clear global environmental impact I hope the UN or something like that will intervene, before all this contaminated ocean water creates "real" sea monsters", or kills/injures scores of people from eating radioactive seafood.


Does this mean I should not eat the fish with 3 eye balls? I bought it fresh just yesterday.

What's sad is, just like every other important issue that affects humanity, this also will just be swept under the rug until it's to late.

That's what I was thinking.  With this going on, wouldn't you think all of the leaders of the world would be cooperating to help solve the situation before we are all glowing in the dark?  I know, not unless there is money in it for them...I am so disappointed in politicians.

I live on the British Columbia coast,eat lots and lots of salmon and other seafood so this definitely hits home
I don't know how to begin in trying to wrap my head around how irresponsible this is
If humans are going to play around with nuclear energy without understanding the implications is just unacceptable

Khol you should ease off the seafood, I know it's hard I happen to love it too!
But ever since the BP disaster and Fukushima I been doing Omega-3 supplements, not as good as a well-baked salmon or stuffed crab but what else can you do.

From Enenews:
Unprecedented: Sockeye salmon at dire historic low on Canada’s Pacific coast — “We think something happened in the ocean” — “The elders have never seen anything like this at all” — Alaska and Russia also affected

What I like to know is "Why have the elites and political leaders of the world completely ignored the Fukushima disaster?"

From Day 1 it was obvious that TEPCO could never really effectively deal with this unprecedented event. The Japanese government should have stepped in with their Defense Forces like the old USSR did in Chernobyl. And they should have immediately requested the world to help in containing this situation.

Now after more than 2 years Japan is asking nuclear experts and nations around the world for assistance and the government is officially taking over the management of the emergency from TEPCO.

Perhaps too late.

Presently the Spent Pool in reactor unit 4 is dangerously close to collapsing, it contains enough fuel rods to release radiation equal to 25 Hiroshimas, and recently it was reported that the ground around the whole plant appears to be liquifying.

Daily over 300 tons of highly radioactive waste water enters the Pacific Ocean. A biologist has found Pacific herrings in Canada hemorrhaging and early this year 100's of sea lions where found dead up and down the west coast. But of course now of these events can be related to the radiation releases from Fukushima, 1000's of miles away.

NOW WHO ARE WE KIDDING?

yeah thanks man.. what can ya do is right
welcome to to world we now live in
dumping of plastics in the ocean,having it leach into the food chain,people eat the seafood..in essence we're eating our own garbage
this wasn't bad enough
now we're dealing with possibly radiated food..it really is just plain disgusting
I don't know..is it possible for anyone to aquire a geiger counter and do our own personal monitoring?
other then that the only option really is to cuttback on seafood like you say and play it safe

It has always been a serious situation. Just underreported.

And yes you shouldn´t eat a fish that looks like this:

I´m making light of it but in all seriosness:

Quote


Nearly two years after the nuclear disaster in Japan, caused by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, leading to the Fukushima nuclear disaster, a fish caught near the site had a record-breaking level of radioactive contamination.

How bad? over 2500x the legal limit. ‘Mike the Murasoi’ was measured by TEPCO, the Tokyo electric power company, at 254,000 becquerels per kilogram. The limit for edible seafood is 100 becquerels. The previous record was ten times lower, standing at 25,800 becquerels/kg.

As a new set of precautions TEPCO is installing new nets 20km around the Fukushima Daichi site to avoid highly contaminated fish getting too far and being consumed by other species.

Time to start growing your own fruit and veg and trying to live off that!  Scary stuff, it's amazing how you have to go and search for this stuff online, it should be on the front of every newspaper and on every news buletin.

Instead its stuff like the one direct movie *facepalm*

It's been any emergency for over two years now.. they've been downplaying the harm exponentially.

I agree.

This has the all the hallmarks of becoming the most serious environmental disaster to date(far exceeding the consequences of the BP Gulf of Mexico oil disaster) and, apparently, is likely to get much worse before any effective "containment" can be done.

What's even worse is that "containment" (though obviously highly needed) can not deal with the unpredictable damage of so much radioactive water already released into the ocean and ground water.

I'm not usually a pessimist, but this whole damn event seems really, really bad for the environmental future.

This is a consequence of humans playing with nuclear energy..

We're so conceited to think this planet exists for us - when we exist because of this planet.

The way the entire world has been handling this is beyond immature..

And this is coming from a twenty year old..

This is going to affect the next several generations - including mine..

Nuclear crisis reaching critical stage

John Gleeson/Staff Writer


The news coming out of Japan these days is not good.

First, the Japanese government confirmed that the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been leaking an estimated 300 tonnes of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean each day. The leaks have apparently been going on since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that caused three reactors in the plant to melt down.

Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) called the situation an emergency and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called it “an urgent problem.” The consensus among independent scientists is that Tepco, the plant’s operator, is incapable of stopping the discharge into the sea, which it has kept secret for more than two years.

It was discovered after the NRA detected strontium and tritium in a monitoring well at the plant site. When found out, the company apologized.

But it gets worse....  :no:

http://www.coastrepo...-critical-stage

TEPCO has been apologizing since Day 1, now what 'good' is it doing us?

Reminds me of BP's Tony Hayward pathetic attempts to apologize for the Gulf spill.

It's unbelievable how world governments are keeping all this vital information from their people. It's most likely in the air that we breathe as well as the food that we eat. Not sure if growing your own would help in this situation. Pennsylvania was detecting elevated levels of elements in the rainwater within a week of the earthquake. I posted the stats back then in a thread we had going. I'm not sure I want to know what it is now. It can be transferred from rain to all plants that livestock eats and contaminate the meat we eat. Also the water we drink.The effects of all this radiation leaking are more widespread than just what happens in the ocean. As for the Gulf, dolphins have been washing up dead all over the New Jersey shore all summer. No one knows why. It makes me cry to think how much damage mankind has caused to the environment. This will take decades...centuries to correct itself, if it can.
