36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast

By Michael Snyder

The west coast of the United States is being absolutely fried by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the mainstream media is not telling us the truth about this.  What you are about to see is a collection of evidence that is quite startling.  Taken collectively, this body of evidence shows that nuclear radiation from Fukushima is affecting sea life in the Pacific Ocean and animal life along the west coast of North America in some extraordinary ways.  But the mainstream media continues to insist that we don’t have a thing to worry about.  The mainstream media continues to insist that radiation levels in the Pacific and along the west coast are perfectly safe.  Are they lying to us?  Evaluate the evidence compiled below and come to your own conclusions…

Fukushima Radiation

#1 Independent researchers have measured alarmingly high levels of radiation on the beaches of the west coast.  For example, the video posted below was taken on December 23rd, 2013 at Pacifica State Beach.  As you can see in this video, radiation levels near the water are up to five times higher than normal background radiation…

#2 According to Oceanus Magazine, the total amount of cesium-137 that has been released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima is 10,000 to 100,000 times greater than the amount released into the oceans by the Chernobyl disaster or by the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests of the 1960s.
#3 Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur has admitted that while he was at MSNBC he was instructed not to warn the public about the radiation coming from Fukushima
“I was on MSNBC at the time when this happened, I said, “Don’t trust what the Japanese government is saying, they’ll say trust what the electric power company is saying. Go, go, go, get outta there. Get as far away from that plant as you can. It’s literally a core meltdown.” And they always don’t want people to panic, so they were always like, “Oh it’s going to be okay.” [...] I’m like, “You’re crazy man, don’t be anywhere near that reactor.” And I remember at the time, of course not at The Young Turks, but on cable news, people were like, “Hey Cenk, you know, I don’t know that you want to say that, because the official government position is that it’s safe.” Oh, is that the official government position? Now go explain that to the people who served on the USS Ronald Reagan.”
#4 71 U.S. sailors who assisted with the initial Fukushima relief efforts have developed serious diseases such as testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, Leukemia, “unremitting gynecological bleeding” and brain tumors since that time as a result of exposure to radiation coming from Fukushima.
#5 Something is causing starfish all along the west coast of the United States to literally disintegrate into piles of “white goo“…
Researchers say nuclear pollution from the 2011 earthquake in Japan that damaged the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant could be partially to blame for a disease wiping out starfish along the West Coast.
Dr. Peter Raimondi of the University of Santa Cruz says something is making starfish susceptible to whats believed to be a bacteria coined “Wasting Disease.” It essentially disintegrate the marine invertebrates into a white goo, after the starfish loses its legs.
#6 Bald eagles are dying in unprecedented numbers in Utah, and nobody can figure out why this is happening…
Bald eagles are dying in Utah — 20 in the past few weeks alone — and nobody can figure out why.
Hundreds of the majestic birds — many with wing spans of 7 feet or more — migrate here each winter, gathering along the Great Salt Lake and feasting on carp and other fish that swim in the nearby freshwater bays.
Earlier this month, however, hunters and farmers across five counties in northern and central Utah began finding the normally skittish raptors lying listless on the ground. Many suffered from seizures, head tremors and paralysis in the legs, feet and wings.
#7 Huge numbers of dead birds are dropping dead and washing up along the coastlines of Alaska.  It is being reported that many of the carcases of the dead birds are “broken open and bleeding”.
#8 The recent deaths of thousands of birds in Oregon is absolutely baffling scientists.
#9 Something is causing large numbers of seals and walruses up in Alaska to lose hair and develop “oozing sores”.
#10 Substantial numbers of polar bears along the coast of Alaska are suffering from fur loss and open sores.
#11 There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline.
#12 The population of sockeye salmon along the coastlines of Alaska is at a “historic low”.
#13 Something is causing Pacific herring to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.
#14 Dangerous levels of cesium-137 have been discovered in mushrooms and berries grown along the west coast.
#15 According to an absolutely shocking report put out by the National Academy of Sciences, it has been proven that Pacific Bluefin tuna have transported radioactive material “across the entire North Pacific Ocean”…
“We report unequivocal evidence that Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, transported Fukushima-derived radionuclides across the entire North Pacific Ocean.”
#16 Something seems to be causing a substantial spike in the death rate for killer whales living off of the coast of British Columbia.
#17 Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.
#18 One test in California found that 15 out of 15 Bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.
#19 Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…
• 73 percent of the mackerel
• 91 percent of the halibut
• 92 percent of the sardines
• 93 percent of the tuna and eel
• 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
• 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish
#20 An EU-funded study concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.
#21 One very experienced Australian adventurer has stated that he felt as though “the ocean itself was dead” as he journeyed from Japan to San Francisco recently…
The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.
“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.
“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.
“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”
In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.
“Part of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And it’s still out there, everywhere you look.”
#22 It is being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coast could double over the next five to six years.
#23 The deputy chairman of Russia’s State Duma Committee for Natural Resources, Maxim Shingarkin, says that seafood captured off the northwest coast of the United States is so radioactive that it represents a “danger for mankind”…
“Currents in the world ocean are so structured that the areas of seafood capture near the U.S. northwest coast are more likely to contain radioactive nuclides than even the Sea of Okhotsk, which is much closer to Japan. These products are the main danger for mankind because they can find their way to people’s tables on a massive scale.”
#24 According to one recent scientific report, radiation from Fukushima could affect our seafood for “many generations” and ultimately kill more than a million people…
This cycle will last for many generations, because of the food chain of fish and other marine fauna, and the radioactivity will be recycled and in fact the meat content will increase rather than decreasing by decay. Even if only one one-hundredth of the radioactivity (more than 1e15 Bq of CS137) were to enter this recirculation pattern, the collective whole body ingestion dose over many generations would exceed 1e7 Sv, sufficient to kill more than 1,000,000 people.
#25 The Japanese government has estimated that approximately 300 tons of highly radioactive water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility every single day.
#26 A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute says that “30 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of radioactive strontium” are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.
#27 According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.
#28 According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day.
#29 It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.
#30 It has been estimated that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon “have cesium levels 5 to 10 times higher” than what we witnessed during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many decades ago.
#31 The immense amount of radioactive material being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issuethe following warning
“Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.”
#32 The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly being released from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living in the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time.  Just consider what Harvey Wasserman had to say about this…
Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.
Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in the muscles.
Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.
#33 Outdoor radiation levels at Fukushima recently hit a new all-time high.
#34 According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.
#35 Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be threatened “for thousands of years”
“Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.”
#36 There are very alarming reports that new “unexplained plumes of radioactive steam” are rising at Fukushima.  Japanese officials are not able to get inside and see what is causing these plumes.  Some are speculating that the crisis at Fukushima just got a whole lot worse.  The following is from a recentEcologist article
Unexplained plumes of radioactive steam have been rising from Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3, Could a major meltdown be on the way?
Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3 exploded on 13th March 2011 as a result of a hydrogen buildup, breaching the building’s containment and emitting a huge plume of radiation. The reactor itself is in meltdown.
And now fresh plumes of steam have been seen coming out the structure. These have now been confirmed by Tepco, the owner of the nuclear plant, from 19th December onwards. The company believes the steam is coming from the fifth floor of the building.
However it does not know the cause of the steam. Lethal levels of radiation and the physical damage to the structure have so far made entry and inspection impossible.
If a full-blown meltdown does happen at Fukushima, it would be an environmental disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in human history.
As we enter 2014, we are entering a time when the world is becoming increasingly unstable.  The global economy is being shaken, political corruption is seemingly everywhere, evidence of advanced social decay is all around us and the earth itself is starting to groan and crack with increasingly regularity.  But the mainstream media continues to insist that everything is going to be just fine.  That is one of the reasons why I wrote my new novel.  The American people deserve to hear the truth and be warned about the great challenges that are rapidly approaching.
In the end, millions upon millions of people could end up getting seriously ill as a result of all of this radiation coming from Fukushima.  Most of them will never even know why they have gotten sick.
And if there is a major earthquake or a significant accident during the cleanup at Fukushima, we could actually see huge sections of Japan be evacuated permanently.
It would be hard to overstate just how serious all of this is.  But you won’t hear about this from the mainstream media.  Their story is that “everything is okay” and they are sticking to it.

    I would have way more respect for this blogger and article… but this person doesn’t want to be provoked of thought… I commented on one of their statuses months ago and was blocked because I didn’t agree with them… #hypocritical

    • admin says:

      Fukushima was a false flag and global depopulation event. Those who control YOU love ignorance and denial. Good luck!

      • Iman Azol says:

        And yet population continues to increase.

        I wonder why the global conspiracy doesn’t just delete everyone who blathers about conspiracies and false flags. Possibly because there isn’t one, and you don’t matter?

  2. Hugh Jass says:

    I stopped reading after I hit the 3rd “mainstream media” phase in the first paragraph. People would take you more seriously if you didn’t make yourself sound like an mega-bias nutter right from the start. Or maybe that’s the the mainstream media talking through me.

  3. Vince Ruta says:

    alarmist gobely gook… no real fact that can be verified – i particukarly love the “and if 2 rods touch” bit – but people will follow what they will where they will – if its the end of the world as this suggest then we are all done so what is the point in the first place.

    Chernobyl was an actual melt down without a containment vessel; and people have moved back and are living in the regions they evacuated.

    This all soounds more like chicken little if people actualy pay attentio to the nonsense…..

  4. Walter says:

    There was a brief news story a few weeks ago about a bunch of whales mysteriously washed up on shore in the west coast and they were all dying and wouldn’t go back to sea despite a number of volunteers trying for days to help them . The story was brief and rushed and never covered or mentioned again , and it was only on one news channel . I couldn’t even find a follow up article about it . I believe this is all happening , and I think it’s naive to not even be open to the possibility and research or try to find things out for yourself . I certainly am worried for my environment and will be careful where I’m eating fish from for a while . Time will tell for certain.

  5. fred says:

    People are NOT inhabiting Chernobyl. That’s bullshit.

  6. Dillon says:

    Yes Fred I’m not sure what the hell Vince Ruta is talking about I think that person might have been dropped on there head as a young child… Chernobyl is a ghost town you dumb ass as it will be for years too come. Really informative piece of writing. Too all the nay-sayers do you really think the government is going to admit the severity of the situation, mass hysteria is not something that any government in the world can control. Also how secretive have they been about the entire thing, you hear a news story about it once every 3 months even tho they have gallons on gallons on gallons of radioactive water leaking into the pacific and have no idea how to stop it and quietly said that there is possible meltdown happening in reactor 3 but know one seems to know about that. Don’t worrie everyone its fine tho, the Chinese are dealing with it ….. They won’t cut any corners :/

  7. steve says:

    I don’t know if all this is true, but that comment on people living in chernobyl is BS. There are like 100 elderly people living in the outer zones and it is still quarantined by the Ukraine government. They don’t recommend anyone going in there for any extended period.

    • Ioannes says:

      Mostly elderly, but not entirely. It’s around 200 people, and they have no unusual health problems. Also there are no “outer zones”, it’s all just the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

  8. jacqui says:

    I will cite the use of common sense, jet streams, ocean currents and the fact that a nuclear accident happened at the “upstream” of these in reguard to the west coast. “Drink upstream from where your cattle are crossing ” is the saying I believe. Ocean and air, it seems the Pacific Coast will be experiencing environmental changes that will be far from pristine.

    • Jules says:

      Exactly. I don’t care what is confirmed or not or what yahoo is reporting on it or not. Radioactive water is flooding the west coast. That is not good. I understand that people would rather not become hysterical and they’d rather keep living on the west coast and eating Alaskan salmon and all that, but uh…

      • admin says:

        Thank you . We have a lot of either sheeple or shill (I think more shill) commenting ….thank you for all this information.

      • Iman Azol says:

        You get radiation from TV, coal, cigarettes. The particle type and density are what matter. “five times background” sounds scary, until you realize you get more radiation than that eating a common banana.

  9. Lost Realist says:

    If you want to dig deeper into the Fukushima disaster, there is no better resource than George Washinton’s Blog hosted on ZeroHedge.com. Chernobyl can’t even be used for comparison because the type of fuel at Fukushima is far more deadly: “MOX” fuel derived from nuclear weapons. 1 ten-millionth of a single gram of plutonium at this concentration as an internal emitter will kill within ~10yrs. Thousands of these rods are stored in cooling pools 100ft above ground in a structurally unstable building with a few dozen more 6-7mag. quakes to occur in the coming decades (read USGS info about quake frequency after a 9.0). Yes, if these rods touch, they exchange neutrons and go supercritical. This is why control rods of graphite are in the Chernobyl reactor; they isolate the fuel rods and stop the reaction. When exposed to air, these rods will heat up on their own, eventually cooking their zirconium cladding and catching fire. With a large enough fire, these particles make it to the jet stream, diffuse according to the law of inverse squares, then concentrate many 1,000x over via precipitation. My advice is to learn how to 1) limit exposure 2) use natural supplements to minimize absorption or help cleanse your body (Zeolite, Vitamin A, seaweed, etc) and 3) make a plan to get out of N. America if cooling pool #4 does collapse and burn. The govt is in fact keeping the reality under wraps; the economic impacts and “fallout” from bad-mouthing the second largest foreign holder of US debt is not something to take lightly. I was selling my stash of nuke pills for a 35,000% ROI to a horde of low-information lemmings after Fukishima blew up. In many situations, the ensuing panic can create more death and destruction than the initial event, a dirty bomb set off in a major city being a perfect example.

    The people that understand what is going on and the secret threats that are being kept quiet, will totally held responsible by GOD! He will protect his children like he always has!

    • Ben says:

      Just like he protects all the people around the world dying of starvation, disease and war… “God” is not going too help us with this one

  11. Stefan van der Westhuizen says:

    I try and keep an eye out on info about the disaster, but it is difficult, and nobody is reporting on it.

    Odd that stories like Concordia which got stranded and the Gulf spill got more attention then Fukushima, which leaves me wondering why you don’t hear or read about follow up reports via conventional media houses who reported on the problem originally.

    Regardless, radioactive junk flowing into the ocean is not only Japan or N. America’s problem, it is the problem of the whole region, and ultimately our problem as a species, and we should take our governments to task to force Japan to “fix” the problem… another earthquake at the wrong time, and things will be a lot worse.

    • Iman Azol says:

      You don’t hear about it because it’s alarmist bullshit. Every link offered is from some conspiritard site, not from a science source. So either there’s a global conspiracy of every scientist and nuclear engineer IN TEH WROLD! and the conspiritards somehow know more than the scientists, or, the conspiritards are full of shit.

      Guess which is more likely?

  12. Kyle says:

    LOL!! #28 According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day. That’s 0.0005% of the RADIATION that was given off by the Hiroshima bomb. Also, because becquerels are units for measuring radiation, its like saying that “There was 30-LUMINS of cars coming right at me!”

  13. Maria F says:

    I honestly dont kno if this is true but im being careful on eating sea food and other products that will aware me ive told some of my friends but we will just have to see how this year will go I hope it goes well

  14. see-er says:

    It is a mistake to believe that you can trust the media. Any media. But especially “main steam media.” Not everything is a lie. However; it would do us all good to remember one very simple fact: The media is controlled by corporations and the government is controlled by corporations, therefore our lives are controlled by corporations. But corporations are controlled by US. The world exists as we know it based on the small percentage who make the most profit and they will do what ever it takes to protect their wealth. Educate yourself by reading between the lines, and be careful with your wallet if you want to make real change. Peace and many blessings. Also, good luck.

    • Iman Azol says:

      Yes, because conspiritards are so much more educated. Not.

      Every government in the world is keeping this quiet in order to secretly and slowly kill as many people as possible…because it’s so much easier than handing out condoms. In retardoworld.

  15. Terryl Todd says:

    Deliberately caused by HAARP. People were photographing the rippling clouds just before the quake.

  16. Thanks for putting this out there. I read TBN Fukushima updates as they come out but not much there. Pathetic how this is being hushed while people continue to eat contaminated food. Denial is rampant. People who want to live in it, can. But I don’t.

  17. Fredo says:

    Here are the problems I have with this article:

    Argument from ignorance (appeal to ignorance, argumentum ad ignorantiam) – assuming that a claim is true (or false) because it has not been proven false (true) or cannot be proven false (true)

    False attribution – an advocate appeals to an irrelevant, unqualified, unidentified, biased or fabricated source in support of an argument

    False authority (single authority) – using an expert of dubious credentials and/or using only one opinion to sell a product or idea

    Appeal to authority (argumentum ab auctoritate) – where an assertion is deemed true because of the position or authority of the person asserting it

    Hasty generalization (fallacy of insufficient statistics, fallacy of insufficient sample, fallacy of the lonely fact, leaping to a conclusion, hasty induction, secundum quid, converse accident) – basing a broad conclusion on a small sample

  18. Anonymous says:

    I hate how stupid people are why would someone want to make up how dangerous this event is. All the author is doing is trying to do is inform. If you don’t like the information you read then that’s your problem. Everyone who believes the government cares about are well being then you are naïve! They only care about themselves and the money they rake in! So keep your conspiracy theory and false flag theories to yourself! The truth will come out soon enough so you have a choice be prepared and informed or just flock together with the rest of the sheep!

      Im not sure why someone would deliberately overstate the danger. I am also unable to understand why people love to gossip so much, but the profits made by US and People magazines show that people love that sort of thing. You said that “All the author is doing is trying to do is inform.” If that is true, then why does the author imply that radiation levels in the pacific are higher than during the nuke testing days, while flat-out stating the radiation level measured in becquerels, but not telling the reader the level of becquerels released by the Hiroshima bomb or any other low level radiation event to give context to the situation.
