heart-breaking news from Fukushima just keeps getting worse…a LOT
worse…it is, quite simply, an out-of-control flow of death and
destruction. TEPCO is finally admitting that radiation has been leaking
to the Pacific Ocean all along. and it’s NOT over….
I find myself moving between the emotions of sorrow and anger.
It now appears that anywhere from 300 to possibly over 450 tons of contaminated water that
contains radioactive iodone, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90, is
flooding into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima Daichi site everyday.
To give you an idea of how bad that actually is, Japanese experts
estimate Fukushima’s fallout at 20-30 times as high as as the Hiroshima
and Nagasaki nuclear bombings in 1945
a lot you’re not being told. Oh, the information is out there, but you
have to dig pretty deep to find it, and you won’t find it on the
corporate-owned evening news.
WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE PACIFIC OCEAN FOOD CHAIN? – May 2013 – Researchers from the Japan Agency for Marine Earth Science and Technology reported in early 2012 that they have detected
radioactive cesium from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in plankton
collected from all 10 points in the Pacific they checked, with the
highest levels at around 25 degrees north latitude and 150 degrees west
longitude. Plankton, and the radiation they contain, moves right up the
food chain through fish, whales, seals, etc., and when larger fish eat
smaller fish. Kyodo: Highest levels of Fukushima contamination in plankton already east of Hawaii?
A WARNING TO SEAFOOD LOVERS EVERYWHERE – Scientists
previously reported higher-than-expected concentrations of radiation in
fish off Japan. Now there are calls for testing of seafood sold in the
contaminated air, rainfall and even radioactive debris from Japan have
drifted toward the U.S. West Coast since the disaster occurred 2 1/2
years ago, scientists are unclear about how the contaminated waters
could impact the health of Americans, and while scientists say that 300
tons of contaminate water is diluted in the Pacific, no one knows how
long that’s been going during those 2 1/2 years as we also now know
TEPCO has been lying all along. Nuclear
experts are calling on the U.S. government to test West Coast waters
and Pacific seafood sold in the U.S. in the wake of Japan’s alarming
admission about an ongoing radiation leak, something the EPA and the FDA
have so far refused to do, as they are only testing imported fish, not
wild-caught. WHY? The only way to protect your children and grandchildren is by NOT EATING SEAFOOD from the Pacific Ocean until we have better information. Source.Information posted at the website of heThe Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of California recommends not buying any fish from the Pacific Ocean or western states, including Baja.
WHAT YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TOLD ABOUT FISH CONTAMINATION

Quotes from Dr Caldicott
What is the greatest threat to humanity? We are, of course….and
our technology. Like a dangerous weapon in the hands of a child,
technology has overtaken our capacity to control potential consequences. Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute,
led by director Nick Bostrom, says we have entered this new kind of
technological era that we have no track record of surviving.
technological intelligence may have the potential for creating a better
world, but so far, in areas of the economy, genetics and biologics,
arms and warfare, security and surveillance, as well as the environment
and energy, technology is also completely indifferent to the law of
Fukushima is what happens when we have the moral responsibility of infants and the technology of adults.
Update: August 16th, 2013
been an interesting 36 hours: This website went from 200-300 visitors a
day to 0ver 16,000 visitors yesterday and over 39,000 today (so far!).
There have also been more comments than any other post that has appeared
here, and honestly, the majority of them have been negative.
started with the graphic that I posted. It turns out, unknowingly to
me, that it was an image from NOAA that showed the Tsunami wave height
that had been edited to look like the Pacific Ocean Fukushima radiation
path. I’m going to look for updated information and will change the
graphic and accompanying information as soon as I have time to look for
it. Unfortunately, the gigantic jump in viewership crashed my site and
I’ve been working on that since yesterday morning. Support and I finally
figured out what had happened and I have upgraded the site to handle
negative comments seem to be mostly from people who aren’t willing to
have a conversation, demanding that I take the article down, that it’s
not credible, that the information is garbage, and even with some
resorting to name calling and insults. I have left them all up. Even
the one that says I don’t have dose counts. Well, if the FDA would
actually do dose counts, we might be able to know that, but since
they’ve refused to measure radiation, we can’t know.
should just trust them when they tell us the radiation levels are safe
(levels that keep on changing), that GMO’s are not harmful, that we
don’t do do experiments on US citizens, that we’re not spying on the
American people, the economy is improving, and that we should live in
fear of terrorists. I ask, who are the real terrorists?
and I were concerned the the site crash was caused by a “denial of
service attack,” but after checking the access logs, we agreed it wasn’t
likely, but not out of the question. I find it unbelievable one article
could cause that drastic of a jump in hits. There’s also been a
significant number of new members, non of whom are paying or making
donations. Let’s see if it holds. I doubt it.
believe the article is credible and that while reasonable people can
disagree, a lot of the negative comments a have a “climate-denier” feel
to them. How many years has that argument been going on? Most people are
going to believe what they want – or have to – believe. it’s not coming
through mainstream sources so it can’t be true? Get real.
those who say that if I don’t take the article down, “it clearly shows
they are not interested in facts, only in trashing the system,” in case
you haven’t noticed, the system needs no help being trashed…it’s
perfectly capable of doing that itself.
Meanwhile, here’s some more fodder for the fodder cannons.
Update: August 18th, 2013
original map posted in the article that many pointed out was an edited
version of wave height has been replaced with a video simulation from this article, can also be viewed on You Tube, and is originally from this website.
Thanks to sharp and informed readers for sending me links. One
commenter said that the simulation is sorely in need of updating as a
result of new information, but does not post a link.
be responding to many of the comments and adding new information and
updates in tomorrow’s CIC Newsletter (issue #28, 4/19/2013), which will
be solely dedicated to the Fukushima disaster and it’s implications. If
you’re not on my mailing list, you can get on here or pick it up off of my Facebook page.
Update: August 21st, 2013
I have been accused of plagiarism and copyright violation from a source website (see the accusation here
) in spite of the message on the website that says, “DUST OFF YOUR

many of you know, CIC is a non-commercial and educational 501(c)3
organization. I stand by the use of the quotes from that website because
I feel that it falls within “Fair Use” parameters because we were
acting in a “news reporting” mode providing commentary for the purpose
of informing the public. Determination of whether copyright infringement
has taken place can ultimately only be decided in a federal court. In
the meantime, the legal department of my webhost, bluehost, has sent me
an email stating that I must remove the article within 48 hours or they
will take my website down. I’ll be contacting my attorney next and then
issue a statement to them about fair use regulations. Here’s why this
falls under fair use:
I have removed every quote and every link from that website, replacing
them with other links and information that I believe do not affect the
article whatsoever. This new version will stay up at this point. I’ll
keep you posted on any new developments.
if you’re one of dozens of websites that have reposted my original
article, you may freely repost this one with my permission, as even
though may work is also copyrighted, anyone is free to repost it with a

Scientists Against Proliferation. Since 2007, he has worked with the
governments of Switzerland, Chile, and New Zealand, in support of their
efforts at the United Nations to eliminate thousands of high-alert,
launch-ready nuclear weapons.
you who compare the amount of potassium in bananas to the Fukushima
release or who minimize the effects of the radiation really need to see this.
