Fukushima radiation from the nuclear plant damaged during the tsunami in Japan has been leaking into our oceans since the time of the tsunami. People don’t seem to realize what a huge problem this is. First of all, the radiation is traveling through our oceans all over the world, the currents are pushing radiation through one of our biggest ecosystems, THE OCEAN. Its made it way to the the West coast of the United States and is upsetting our ecosystems drastically.
Heres why: major species are being wiped out. You may have read about the whales, tuna, sardines, and even starfish that have been completely dying off due to radiation poison. One selfish person might think, well thats fine I don’t eat starfish, I can live without caesar salads and tuna sashimi, and the whales are always fine when crazy environmentalists are claiming their all dying.
This is a horrible way to think first of all and second when an entire species is wiped out in a specific area it upsets the entire balance of nature in that ecosystem. Have you ever heard of a keystone species. LOOK IT UP.
Anyway, when an entire species is wiped out because they are specifically sensitive to radiation and cannot survive it whatever was either eating that species, or eaten by that species will be affected and therefore have to adapt or die, altering the way of life. This will affect entire food chains, which will end up affecting people, and our planet.
Know that the Japenese and United States governments are trying to downplay the effects of the Fukushima radiation disaster. TEPCO and the Japanese government have repeatedly been caught lying in their efforts to downplay the scale of the Fukushima disaster. In September it was confirmed that radiation readings around the power plant were 18 times higher than previously reported by TEPCO. After a tank leaked 300 tonnes of toxic water in August, groundwater radiation readings at the plant soared to 400,000 becquerels per litre, the highest reading since the nuclear accident occurred in March 2011.
EPA officials in America also lied in the weeks after 9/11 when they told rescue workers and the general public that the air at ground zero was safe to breathe. According to insiders, EPA officials knew that the dust in the air was laden with asbestos but chose to cover up the truth, leading to at least 20,000 ground zero workers suffering debilitating illnesses and numerous deaths.
Mainstream media outlets have also largely toed the line on Fukushima despite overwhelming evidence of a cover-up of the true scale of the crisis by Japanese authorities. Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur was told not to warn the public about the danger posed by the meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant during his time as a host on the cable network.
Concerns that the federal government is preparing for some form of nuclear emergency have heightened after it was revealed that the Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February.
A group of United States Navy are attempting to sue the Japanese government for lying about safety levels of radiation. Many of them now have cancer, and have had extreme radiation poisoning forcing them to lose weight extremely quickly, nausea, loss of fertility, and requiring transfusions of blood due to radiation. Why isn’t the mainstream media covering this?
I am often perplexed, why do conservatives not trust their government at all when it comes to statistics on the economy, homelessness, unemployment, etc. But they are willing to trust our government when it comes to massive catastrophes such as radiation poisoning and 9/11 rescuers being poisoned? If the government lies… it lies. Lets do our research and keep ourselves safe.
