Fukushima: Your Days of Eating Pacific Ocean Fish Are Over

advertisement - learn more

fukushima-radiationWhen it comes to environmental disasters, the nuclear fallout at Fukushima has to be amongst the worst that has happened in the past few decades. Andrew Kishner, founder of http://www.nuclearcrimes.org/ has put together a great resource of information that tracks what has been developing over time in Fukushima as it relates to the nuclear incident. You can check out his research further using the links below.

The following is written by Gary Stamper in regards to what has been happening with Fukushima.

“The heart-breaking news from Fukushima continues to get 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 showing signs of stopping just yet.

It now appears that anywhere from 300 to possibly over 450 tons of contaminated water that contains radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90, is flooding into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima Daichi site every day.

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.

There’s 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.”

Some Facts From Andrews research.

LATEST: TEPCO says they believe 10 trillion becquerels of strontium-90 (and also 20 trillion becquerels of cesium-137) have leaked into the ocean from the crippled reactor complex since 5/11. (source). This is a ridiculously low estimate. Also, radioactive tritium levels in the sea (seaport) at Daiichi are creeping up and up and up (we knew that was gonna happen).

RECENT: In the latest mess at Fukushima, one or more of the hundreds of storage tanks at the nuclear complex holding EXTREMELY radioactive liquid waste are leaking. The radioactive liquid waste is flowing into the soil and standing puddles are ‘hot,’ measuring, at surface, about 10 Rem/Hr. Even taken out of context of the ongoing ‘level 7’ Fukushima nuclear disaster, these disastrous spills are considered BAD. As it turns out, the leak crisis has received a distinct crisis categorization, classed ‘a level 3’ on an eight point international scale (INES).

RECENT: Onsite contaminated water at Fukushima contains 3x the cesium released by Chernobyl (and Mighty Oak) — SOURCE

  1. It is disingenuous and more than a little misleading to show this graphic, with sinister, horror-show music in the background, WITHOUT explaining ANYWHERE the FACT
    that the particles of radiation are HEAVY and would In no way shape or form float on the Pacific current.

    • George Smiley

      BS Lynn. Dissolved chemicals or superfine particles or tiny components of larger material go with the flow. But dilution will see us survive this one. If a cooling pond drains and burns into the atmosphere THEN civilization is lost. And for those who ‘believe’ a nuclear engineer, recall that they designed those GE reactors and TEPCO has been lying the whole time – they didn’t even push for iodine supplements for the kids on the grounds it wasn’t serious enough as to be necessary.

    • Do you have an article that has the right information and depictions?

      • Helen

        You just have to look at a periodic table – radioactive elements tend to be heavy by nature.

    • - Collective Evolution

      “Snopes” ..these guys make mistakes just as everyone else does.

      This is from the writer himself:
      “UPDATE: SNOPES.COM is WRONG – Snopes just cleared up the truth about this misleading ocean map but then passed along a mistruth about dilution. Dilution isn’t going to make our problems go away. http://www.nuclearcrimes.org/halibut.php

      • Sorry, but I’ll take the EPA and a nuclear engineer’s word over an activist’s.

        • Duane Selby

          The same EPA that allowed cancer causing aspartame to be used in food? even though its been linked to cancer?

        • - Collective Evolution

          We all have he right to take whatever word we like. Just understand the political reasons to deny the truth that the EPA would have at least. As for an engineer, I’ve heard them speak on both sides of the equation.

          • aj

            Thank you.

  2. Tina

    They also don’t explain the scale…
    “Surface concentrations relative to initial values off Japan”

    The values range from 1E-12 to 1E-3… so surface concentrations UP TO 0.001 or 0.1% of the initial values off Japan????

    Why am I worried about this??

  3. john

    450 tons of water at 62.4 lbs/cu-ft is about 14,423 cu-ft or 0.00052 cu-miles. The oceans are about 310 million cu-miles. So, the contaminated water is about 0.000000000167% of the oceans volume. No worries unless I’m very close to the source. I’ll eat my sushi, thank you.

    • Thomas

      450 tons daily dude… I don`t know if your %age calculations are correct, but if they are, it`s 912 days from the disaster which gives us 0.000000167% to this day… Taking the time of half-life of strontium 90 under consideration – almost 30 years we get around 0.000002% of contaminated water in the ocean which then is diluted by normal water and raise the radiation of much much wider area… maybe it`s still not THAT much but definitely I wouldn`t eat anything from around the Japan at least. Huge consequences!

    • Omie D

      450 tons PER DAY since 2011, and still going.

    • Josh

      Look up the term “bioaccumulation”.

    • samknotts

      Eat up! Maybe you could replace white rice with “Golden Rice” to compound the nutrition?

      • Hallu

        HAAAAAhaha, YOU ARE SO FUNNEh !!!!!!!!! 😀

  4. Heather McIntyre

    I watched the video about Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku explaining the Fukushima Situation. First of all, I was surprised the interview was back in 2011. The scope of this thing is enormous. The animation about the fallout ratios just in the sea isn’t a tad misleading. Maybe there should be a global animation of the effects. Also, there needs to be someone collecting all the data so that if something like this happens again, studies could be done prior to another incident so a plan of action could be instituted as soon as it happens. Unfortunately, but fortunately in some ways if it’s, in my humble opinion, done right, our evolution belongs on the continued path of Nuclear power. On the pro side, it will be the harbinger of further advancements in power. But there are so many cons, is it worth it to our evolution? Will we “evolve” ourselves right off the face of this earth?

  5. Kathy Semenuk

    i just talked to a gal in Hawaii who works for the Military Hospital there she said this is false…….who do we believe?

  6. Irene

    Still, so sad for the people of Japan, many whom earn a living fishing and whose daily diet includes seafood. The people of Japan who live in the area are affected and scared. It is a tragedy that is still not solved, including what to do about safe energy, how to live safe in the area of contaminated soils, waters, and many homeless and unable to return to their native towns. I was in Japan and I saw the pictures, read the stories in local magazines and spoke with local bilingual people. So sad for the people whom it does affect in Japan.

    • dWS

      We are already dead, do not feel sorry for that. The reality is that nobody wants to know the truth here, we will die eating fish, because we like to eat it every day. I hope that other countries learn the lesson, we are two years late to change anything.

  7. RRR

    Has anyone taken in to account mirgrating schools of fish/sea creatures passing through the area and traveling to a new destination {{glowing}}? Not to mention the Japanese fishing industry. What a huge mess this has become. Instead of fighting over piles of sand in the middle east putting effort here would have been more helpful. Humans sure do have a way of mucking things up!

  8. Wendy Schwarting

    Snoop says this is false. Who to believe.

  9. Andrew

    Two things: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/energy/2013/08/130821-fukushima-latest-leak-how-is-it-different/

    TL:DR: While the Leak is serious, and a problem of concern, it was an isolated incident (though more tanks could leak). The faulty tank has since been pumped dry.

    Through a link in the article, there is also a Q&A where they say “Buesseler thinks the risk is mostly confined to local fish that dwell mostly at the sea bottom, where radioactive material settles. He says bigger fish that range over long distances in the ocean quickly lose whatever cesium contamination they’ve picked up.” The issue with the concentration of Strontium-90 is mentioned where he says “While he’s still not too concerned that fish caught off the U.S. coast will be affected, “strontium changes the equation for Japanese fisheries, as to when their fish will be safe to eat.”

    Local fish in Japan are banned from being fished as of right now so most of the Pacific Fish farmed should be okay to eat.

    Snopes has a related article with a similar image being circulated as well: http://www.snopes.com/photos/technology/fukushima.asp

    Just so you know!

    • Caroline K.

      This is not true.

  10. Josh in Champaign

    I’ve already concluded that this world is going to be one horrible place to live by the end of my lifetime, I’m not having kids, I’m enjoying it while I can and then, well, as Billy Joel said; “We didn’t start the fire”

  11. Kate

    The worst disaster in the past few decades??? How about the WORST ever!!! This mess is threatening the entire northern hemisphere. Google Helen Caldicott and get the full story.
