Last year, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and 3 scientists from the GEOMAR Research Center for Marine Geosciences showed that radiation on the West Coast of North America could end up being 10 times higher than in Japan:

Lot scary indeed!!

Great info. Thanks for link!

What's really terrifying are people like Dr. Bonnie Henry declaring that the Pacific Ocean will be able to safely dilute the radioactive waste waters released by Fukushima.  Where do people like this come from? Why the denial?

They are finally admitting this plant is out of control and asking for outside help.

'An operator at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan has said radiation readings are 18 times higher than previously measured.
The staff member said they had found highly radioactive water dripping from a pipe used to connect two coolant tanks and that it had been patched up using tape.
The discovery of the pipe came a day after Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) said it found new radiation hotspots at four sites around coolant tanks, with one reading at 1,800 millisieverts per hour - a dose that would kill a human left exposed to it in four hours.'

I saw the higher radiation readings on the news tonight on 3 different channels. At least now they're reporting something. Of course, no one is supposed to worry. They even said it would kill a human in 4 hours.

Australia news is reporting more possible leaks than are known now.

This is being reported about the US Pacific coast.

'The Japanese government will take prompt, comprehensive steps to clean up the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant amid growing concerns about the plant operator's ability to handle it, the country's prime minister has said.
Shinzo Abe said on Monday that his government will step forward to take all necessary steps to handle the legacy of the March 2011 nuclear disaster.  He said the government will draw up a fundamental plan to do so "quickly."'

'Public concern
Al Jazeera's Florence Looi, reporting from Tokyo, said a more detailed plan would be unveiled soon, possibly on Tuesday when Abe chairs a nuclear response meeting.  "This could be a plan to hire foreign experts, as Tepco intended, or a timeline for decommissioning the plant," she said.
"That could take forty years, with some experts saying it could run to more than 100 years.
"They have reiterated that they might have no choice but to discharge some of the water into the ocean."
If the water were to be discharged, it would be within the prescribed safe levels of radiation, our correspondent explained.'

oh for goodness' sake.  do any of you realize how big the pacific is?  yes, the japanese probably shouldn't harvest seafood from local sources for a while.. but honestly, all the coal energy plants in the world kick out WAY more damaging radioactivity than fukushima!  detectable levels are SO far away from harmful levels that the discussion is basically rediculous for USA folk.


The problem isn't nuclear power, it is the lack of oversight on nuclear power.  Yes, solar and wind might EVENTUALLY be better for the environment, but currently nuclear is the clear leader for efficiency and actual, deliverable output to sustain the world.

So you must drink from the same fountain of denial that Canadian scientist Dr. Bonnie Henry and Japanese PM Abe tap.

And all the world's coal plants emit more radiation then Fukushima? What BS is this?

Are you a nuclear scientist or an nuclear industry lobbyist?

Japanese seafood is not the only casualty of this catastrophic event, all nations and peoples in the world will eventually feel the effects of the radiation released by Fukushima.

All the world's oceans are interconnected, the radiation is not going to be limited to just the Pacific it will traverse the globe it's all just a matter of time.

Nuclear Expert: Melted fuel is exiting Fukushima site — Very effective way of it being dispersed to humans far away from plant — Situation is beyond man’s control — 3 or 4 times Chernobyl’s radioactivity available for release

http://enenews.com/n...s-control-audio

Study: Fukushima released 100 quadrillion becquerels of cesium into atmosphere… In just ONE day — About equal to Chernobyl’s total release

Didn't snopes address this?

http://www.snopes.co...y/fukushima.asp

And why is a legit news outlet showing a video of tsunami levels and trying to pass it off as radiation levels?

http://skeptoid.com/...sh-really-over/

So, yes, Fukushima is a big problem, but can we look at real solutions and take a pass on the fear mongering?
