Kyodo News, Apr 21, 2015:
"Outage hits pumps at Fukushima plant; toxic water leaks into ocean – [Tepco] on Tuesday reported that a power outage has shut down all eight water transfer pumps… and that radioactive water is again leaking into the Pacific Ocean… The beleaguered utility said it was checking into what happened and how much water had leaked. The pumping had begun last Friday, in response to a finding in late February that highly radioactive water in the channel was reaching the ocean."
NEXT IN IMPORTANCE:
FINALLY, THE U.S. IS CALLING A HALT TO SOME PACIFIC FISHING!
Monterey Herald, Apr 13, 2015: For the first time in 30 years [sardine fishing] will be banned.
Enticknap, Oceana senior scientist (1:08:00 into the audio) — “We’ve seen a significant change in recruitment [Recruitment: The number of new young fish that enter a population]. There’s been practically no recruitment in recent years, and this was not expected.
MEXICO HAD ASKED THE U.S. TO JOIN IT TO ORDER A MORATORIUM ON BLUEFIN TUNA FISHING AS THE POPULATION HAS BEEN "MYSTERIOUSLY" DECIMATED.
THE U.S. WAS PETITIONED BY CONCERNED SCIENTISTS TO AGREE TO A BAN AND SAID THEY WERE "CONSIDERING IT".
IN JANUARY, 2015, The California Assembly and Senate asked federal fishery managers to end the use of drift gill nets, a tool to catch swordfish.
SWORDFISH NUMBERS ARE ALSO WAY DOWN...70% DOWN!
The president of the tiny Pacific island nation of Kiribati announced a ban on commercial fishing in the waters surrounding his country in order to protect the marine life that lives along the coral reefs that ring his country’s islands.
SANE PEOPLE SEE THE NEED FOR BANS!
BOTH ALASKAN AND CANADIAN NATIVE TRIBES HAVE ASKED FOR AN INVESTIGATION AS TO WHY BOTH TROUT AND SALMON ARE DYING OFF, FAILING TO RETURN, AND SHOWING UP WITH MELTED EYES AND SKIN LESIONS.
FROM ONE SIDE OF THE PACIFIC TO THE OTHER, COASTAL AND ISLAND RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN SCREAMING THAT EVERYTHING IS EITHER DYING OR DISAPPEARING AND HAVE DEMANDED ANSWERS, HELP, AS THEIR CULTURES DEPEND ON THE PACIFIC FOR LIFE, FOR FOOD.
POPULATIONS OF SCALLOP, OYSTERS AND SHRIMP ARE SO LOW IN PACIFIC WATERS THAT FEW SHELLFISHERMEN ARE BOTHERING TO GO OUT AND LOOK FOR THEM.
THE NATIONS OF CANADA, RUSSIA, SOME CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICAN NATIONS, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND SOUTH KOREA HAVE NOT BEEN AFRAID TO SUGGEST THESE MASS DIE-OFFS ARE THE FAULT OF THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER, BUT THE U.S. AND JAPAN HOLD OUT, OFFERING EVERY REASON BUT RADIATION!
GERMANY RECENTLY ADVISED ITS CITIZENS NOT TO EAT WILD BOAR MEAT AS IT CONTINUES TO SHOW HIGH LEVELS OF RADIATION...FROM CHERNOBYL, FROM 30 YEARS AGO!
THE TEA ROOM HAS OFFERED MAINSTREAM MEDIA HEADLINES, STUDIES, ETC, ON THIS FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS.
FINALLY, THE U.S. HAS HAD TO TAKE ACTION, BUT THEY ARE STILL DISGUISING WHAT MANY EXPERTS, INCLUDING THOSE FROM WOODS HOLE, NOAA, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AND OTHERS HAVE SAID:
THE PACIFIC HAS BEEN IRRADIATED.
RADIATION KILLS FISH!
NY Times, Apr 15, 2015 (emphasis added): [Regulators] approved an emergency closure of commercial sardine fishing off Oregon, Washington and California… Earlier this week, the council shut down the next sardine season… [R]evised estimates of sardine populations… found the fish were declining in numbers faster than earlier believed… [Stocks are] much lower than estimated last year… The reasons are not well-understood.
Oregonian, Apr 13, 2015:
Pacific coast sardines are facing a population collapse so severe [fishing] will be shut down… [The] downward spiral IN SPITE OF FAVORABLE WATER CONDITIONS has ocean-watchers worried there’s more to this collapse than cyclical population trends.
MORE THAN THIS GUY HAS SAID THE WATER CONDITIONS ARE JUST FINE, THANKS, THAT IT'S BEEN COLDER, WARMER, MORE ACIDIC AND LESS ACIDIC OVER THE PAST 4 YEARS, OVER THE PAST 100 YEARS
“There are a lot of weird things happening out there, and we’re not quite sure why they aren’t responding the way they should,” said Kevin Hill, a NOAA Fisheries biologist… Fishery managers are adding it to a list of baffling circumstances off the West Coast… NOAA surveys indicate very few juvenile fish made it through their first year. “The population isn’t replacing itself,” Hill said.
WHY DIDN'T THEY SAY WHAT CAUSED THE DECLINE IN ZOOPLANKTON?
THAT WAS REPORTED FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE PACIFIC STARTING 3 YEARS AGO!
ALMOST, BUT ONLY ALMOST, THE NEW YORK TIMES SUGGESTED RADIATION AS THE REASON BEHIND THE MASSIVE LOSS OF MARINE LIFE IN THE PACIFIC...INSTEAD, THEY USED THE BROAD TERM S "HUMAN-CAUSED" AND "ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION"... WELL, YES, THAT'S WHAT RADIATION IS!
New York Times, Jan 15, 2015:
A team of scientists… has concluded that humans are on the verge of causing unprecedented damage to the oceans and the animals living in them. “We may be sitting on a precipice of a major extinction event,” said Douglas J. McCauley, an ecologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an author of the new research, which was published on Thursday in the journal Science.
DISCOVERY NEWS DID LET THE FUKUSHIMA WORD SLIP OUT!
"Discovery News: A wasting disease that’s attacking starfish… could be at least in part caused by nuclear pollution from [Fukushima] said a marine ecologist involved with studying sick starfish. Peter Raimondi [told News 1130 in Vancouver] that nuclear pollution carried across the ocean… can’t be ruled out as a factor. “One of the byproducts is obviously nuclear radiation discharge…” he told the news outlet."
I BET HEADS ROLLED AFTER THAT REPORT!
A NOAA EXPERT ALSO CALLED IT LIKE IT IS AFTER AN UNPRECEDENTED NUMBER OF WHALES LITERALLY HUG THE CALIFORNIA COASTLINE TO STAY OUT OF THE DEEPER PACIFIC!
"Jeff Feldner, Oregon Sea Grant Extension (NOAA) fisheries specialist(at 2:30 in): It’s probable that, for one thing, a lot of the larger animals got out of there [NEAR JAPAN] quickly. The other thing is that I suspect animals, like whales for instance, I think they would probably be able to tell that something was wrong. They’re very, very intelligent animals. They’re not going to just wait until they start to die off. I think they’re probably likely going to voluntarily get out of the area."
Whale Expert near Vancouver: In 30 years I’ve never ever seen this kind of behavior, “They must sense this is a safe place to be” — Captain: I’ve never seen anything like it in 50 years on Pacific — “One even placed its head on the boat” (VIDEO)
CBS News: 100s of whales in bay on California coast; It's never been like this, we just can't even believe it -- Experts: We just aren't sure what's going on;
REMEMBER THE LOCALS REPORTING THEY COULDN'T EVEN DRIVE BABY SEALS BACK INTO THE SEA?
REMEMBER THE TRIBAL ELDERS UP NEAR THE ARCTIC CIRCLE BEGGING FOR HELP FOR ORCAS TRAPPED IN ICE BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO HEAD SOUTH, INSTEAD TRYING TO CARVE NEW ROUTES UP AND OVER THE ARCTIC?
PAY EXTRA CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS STATEMENT, PLEASE:
REMEMBER THE WALRUSES WHO STARVED TO DEATH ON ISLANDS RATHER THAN GO INTO THE SEA?
WHAT HAPPENED TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MOTHERS OF SEAL PUPS WHO LEFT THEM AT A TENDER AGE AND NEVER CAME BACK TO FEED THEM?
WHERE ARE THEY?
NO ONE KNOWS!
Dr. Christopher Mah, a leading sea star expert, told CTV News in JANUARY, 2014:
“If we are talking about this wave of radiation, that should be affecting everything and we are not seeing that.”
ONE YEAR LATER, 200 SPECIES IN THE PACIFIC HAVE BEEN AFFECTED, OVER 20 SPECIES HAVE BEEN HIT SO HARD THEY MAY FACE EXTINCTION...OVER 100 HAVE SHOWED UP ON THE WEST COAST DEAD BY THE MILLIONS!
HOW ABOUT NOW, MAH, HOW ABOUT THAT?
LET'S DO A SHORT LIST ON SOME OF THOSE "AFFECTED" ...
~ FROM PLANKTON AND KELP TO JELLYFISH, CORAL, SEA URCHINS, CRAB, SHRIMP, OYSTERS, SCALLOPS, ABALONE, ALMOST EVERY FOOD FISH OUT THERE FROM ANCHOVY TO SALMON, SEA TURTLES, SEALS, SEA LIONS, DOLPHINS, ORCAS, HUMPBACK WHALES, WALRUSES, POLAR BEARS, TOO MANY TYPES OF SEABIRDS TO KEEP UP WITH...
More than 90% of all top marine predators have disappeared from the oceans.
HOW MANY "AFFECTED" SPECIES WILL HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THE "EXPERTS" COME CLEAN?
HELL! THEY CAN'T EVEN AGREE ON WHETHER THE WATER IS COLD OR WARM, ACIDIC OR NOT!
AND IT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE OF THE 200+ SPECIES ALREADY AFFECTED, SOME THRIVE IN ALL THOSE CONDITIONS, BUT ALL OF THEM ARE DYING!
WARM WATER LOVERS, COLD WATER LOVERS, THOSE WHO LIKE IT ACIDIC AND THOSE WHO LIKE IT ALKALINE, ALL ARE DYING!
THEY ARE ALL DYING WITH THE SAME SYMPTOMS!
THEY ARE NOT PRODUCING OFFSPRING, OR THE YOUNG ARE DYING SOON AFTER BIRTH!
SKIN LESIONS, ACROSS THE BOARD...BODIES OR BODY PARTS "MELTING"...
JUST CALL IT, JUST SAY WHAT'S REALLY WRONG AND ALL YOU BIG NAME "EXPERTS" FIGURE OUT WHAT THE HELL TO DO TO STOP IT!
IF WE NEED TO TURN THAT DAMNED FUKUSHIMA PLANT INTO A BIG DOME OF GLASS, EVACUATE THOSE PEOPLE AND LET'S ROLL!
THERE MUST BE A SOLUTION AND THE SOLUTION WILL NEVER BE FOUND UNTIL WE START FACING THE TRUTH OF WHAT IS KILLING EVERYTHING, INCLUDING HUMAN BEINGS!
JAPAN IS HARDEST HIT
FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, JAPAN'S BIRTHRATE FELL TO RECORD LOWS.
" The estimated number of people who died in 2014 totaled 1,269,000, an increase of around 1,000.
Some 39 months after the multiple explosions at Fukushima, thyroid cancer rates among nearby children have skyrocketed to more than forty times (40x) normal.
More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.
More than 120 childhood cancers have been indicated where just three would be expected, says Joseph Mangano, executive director of the Radiation and Public Health Project. "
Dr. Janette D. Sherman, MD, Apr 17, 2015:
"I was hired by the Atomic Energy Commission as a radiological monitor at the “Rad Lab,” University of California in Berkeley… While working at the university “Rad Lab,” I was offered a research job at the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory… Chernobyl, which melted down in 1986, is still leaking and the sarcophagus being built to cover it is not finished. But the most critical site is Fukushima – so radioactive and unstable that it may never be contained… four years after the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown, radioactive materials continue to flow into the air and ocean. Given that it takes 10 half-lives for an isotope to completely decay, for sr-90 and cs-137, that will be nearly three centuries… in one lifetime our world has become a massive dumping ground – toxic in various ways to all life."
IT'S PAST TIME THE WORLD'S "EXPERTS" ON THIS GET TOGETHER TO DO SOMETHING, TELL US WHAT WE CAN DO BESIDES SIT HERE AND WATCH ALL THIS DEATH HAPPEN.
SOMEBODY NEEDS TO TAKE THIS AWAY FROM TEPCO AND HAND IT OVER TO ANYONE WITH THE DESIRE AND MEANS TO CORRECT IT...NOW!
