Wake Up And Smell The Radiation

I’m not an alarmist, by any means. I read, educate myself, and then I make my decision based upon facts. This is why, when I say you – YOU – need to wake up and ask questions about the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster.

And yes, that is EXACTLY what it is, and continues to be, since the earthquake that struck the region in 2011.

Reactors one through three are largely contained, but continue to leak radiation into the ocean, and damage the environment, not only in Japan, but across the globe. Studies reported by Scientific American point to one specific radioactive particle recently found in kelp from the Corona del Mar area in Newport Beach, CA, had 40,000,000 bcq/kg of radioactive iodine. For those that are unsure of your becquerels- That amount is staggering. Consider this- There may be up to 1600 more isotopes floating around that have yet to be tested. By the way, your pacific fishes feed off that exact kelp. Enjoy.

Now reports of pollen being contaminated in California are being reported as well. TEPCO only recently admitted that there were, in fact, three meltdowns, and that all they could do to keep it in check, for now, is to pour water across the rods. This is the best they can do? Meanwhile, nuclear particles continue to fill the air.

Now let’s get to the real reason YOU should be alarmed. I am going to link you to several pieces of information, so that you may educate yourself- Be ready to be alarmed. I was.

First: Let’s hear from Akio Matsumura, former UN Advisor from Japan:

A snippet from the interview:

The crisis at the Fukushima-Daiichi power plants has not ended. While the first three reactors contained fuel and presented a serious threat since March 11, 2011, they have largely been contained. Reactor 4 contained no fuel when the earthquake hit. Instead, the spent fuel rods had been moved to a cooling pool on the second floor of the containment unit. [...] If another high level earthquake hits the area, the building will certainly collapse. Japanese and American meteorologists have predicted that such a strong earthquake is indeed likely to hit this year.

The meltdown and unprecedented release of radiation that would ensue is the worst case scenario that then-Prime Minister Kan and other former officials have discussed in the past months. He warned during his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos that such an accident would force the evacuation of the 35 million people in Tokyo, close half of Japan and compromise the nation’s sovereignty. Such a humanitarian and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable. [...]
