Twice as much Fukushima radiation near California coast than originally reported; Highest levels found anywhere in Eastern Pacific — Scientist: Very little we can do… It’s unprecedented… God forbid anything else happens — Gundersen: Multiple plumes now along west coast… Will be coming “for century or more” (AUDIO)

Seattle Post Intelligencer, Nov 11, 2014 (emphasis added): Mike Priddy, supervisor of Washington’s Environmental Sciences Section [wrote] in an email exchange today: “… if the water has radioactive material in it at any level, coming into contact with it will cause the contamination to transfer. That said, the levels… pose no real health affects… whether you come in contact with the water or somehow casually ingest it. The levels I have seen in seawater are interesting from a scientific point of view, but well below health concerns.”

KHUM, Nov. 12, 2014 — Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (10:00 in): In winter time… offshore waters might move inshore… I’m hoping to get samples… as this plume moves its way maybe on to shore.

Take Two Show, Nov. 14, 2014 — Host: The thing that I read that did do a good job of reassuring me was a comparison to a dental x-ray. Maybe tell us that one? Buesseler: We’re comparing to a dental x-ray because that’s something people experience and choose to do… The risk is never zero, any additional radioactivity can cause additional cancers… There’s really very little we can do once its in the ocean. Fukushima was an unprecedented event… God forbid something happens today, it’s pretty unstable off Japan.

Santa Rosa Press Demiocrat, Nov 11, 2014: [Dan Sythe, CEO of International Medcom] shares Buesseler’s concern that the federal government is not monitoring… Some people are “on edge” about the prospect of Fukushima radiation reaching them, he said. The radiation now reaching California is at the front edge of the plume, and Buesseler said the concentration is expected to increase [for] the next two to three years. But it’s worrisome, he said, that what’s happening now in Japan will reach North America in about three years.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution — Current Results:

Nov. 10, 2014 — Sample F#5049 (offshore Calif.): Cs134 @ 0.8 Bq/m³; Cs137 @ 6.9 Bq/m³
Nov. 15, 2014 — Sample F#5049 (offshore Calif.): Cs134 @ 1.7 Bq/m³; Cs137 @ 6.9 Bq/m³

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen, Radio Ecoshock, Oct. 29, 2014 (23:30 in): [In addition to the radioactive plume off the Canadian coast], there’s also another plume heading a little bit further south, down near Oregon coast into California… We are not at the peak, it’s still coming, and it will continue to come as long as Fukushima continues to bleed into the Pacific, we’re seeing the beginning of this… The problem is that the fish that live in that water bioaccumulate that material.

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen, Nuclear Hotseat, Nov. 12, 2014 (31:45 in): [Fukushima is] going to bleed for decades, if not centuries [into the Pacific]… There will still be a huge residual amount of radiation in the soil and in the groundwater so that the site will continue to bleed into the Pacific a century or more.

"while the U.S. pursues a permanent storage site"?? Wasn't that the WIPP disaster site? You know, the place that was only supposed to store minor stuff like used gloves, but wound up spewing plutonium in everyone's face?

And even they are saying that nuclear waste (70-plus years' worth) will increase 66% in just the next six years?

Do they even KNOW what they're saying? Does anyone who reads their rag have a clue what they are saying? Is there any stable story at all or just make it up as they go along? All of the above and more.

Kelp off Southern California contained Fukushima radioactive iodine in a matter of days after the explosions. It was carried there by the wind, like mercury is carried by the wind and the upper atmosphere has a permanent inventory of mercury that is constantly circulating… rained down onto the land and into the oceans.

Salt Spray will concentrate the radioisotopes on the beach, homes and cars. It is called the Sea – Land Transfer Function.

And 38 million North Americans live on the Pacific coastal plain (defined as 150 miles inland from the shoreline).

Lots of humans On the Beach.

"God forbids something happens today," and "It will take three years to reach North America"??

Hey, psycho Buesseler, THAT "three years" is up. Then there is the three years ahead and the three years after that. But since "today" is still a "God forbid," you say, then nothing times three years still equals nothing, and so on. Then they can safely do the routine with "exponential": It's exponentially worse every three years but since the first three years start as a blank, "exponentially" no longer matters. I guess that no one f-ing cared enough to even measure the baseline? Or to announce it? Or "whatever"?

By now, I'd be glad to drag this character to the Haag along with TEPCO. Life means nothing to you? O.k. Then YOUR life means nothing to US. Your life is no better than a freak show, Mr. B. Shame on you forever.

Maybe some day the powers that be will let us common folk see the data in real time from one of the many satellites us common folk taxpayers paid for that can detect radiation from distant galaxies, that happened to be blocked from us just after this while sh*t-show started. Just sayin' Wouldn't that be nice of them?

The fact that evident radiation (cesium 134) is detected AT ALL is a great conCERN. The world is flat scientists that dilute truth and spread lies that the detection is of no consequential value is deceptive to say the least.

An active isotope ingested can cause cancer due to atomic decay timescale; depressed and depleted immune systems by abomination foods and natural food put through nuclear cobalt 60 bombardment machines.

America is second only to China in irradiation of mass foods.

That was the saddest read ever. Poor trees. Enenewsers aside, I think I like trees better than people. It's so not fair. Is there any hope we will redeem ourselves? Looking like the warmongers and vulture capitalists are putting the last nails in our coffin, as we speak and throwing our bodies on the machine doesn't look like it's going to do a damn bit of good. Dead ocean, dead trees = dead humans.

that isn't to say Fukushima isn't also destroying the atmosphere, it is, obviously… but, we can stop planes from dumping chemicals and we don't have any solutions for Fuku, so let's address what we can, stop the chemtrails planes…. now

Does it not seem obvious that we have been fataled?

May take some years, but does it not look to the informed, that the human race has been swept out with the use of nuclear technology?

Will labor not give us a chance to live? Will labor not organize to take the authority to issue our money away from the guys who only build nuclear weapons and dirty bomb power plants?
