Fukushima Radiation More Than 10 Times The Normal Level Is Detected On California Beaches

 By Michael Snyder, on January 22nd, 2014

 

     


Fukushima Radiation - University Of New South Wales

Multiple independent tests have confirmed that levels of nuclear radiation are being detected on California beaches that are more than 10 times the normal level.  Many believe that this is the result of highly radioactive water from Fukushima that has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is now washing up on California beaches.  Others are blaming the radiation spikes on “natural sources”, but they can never seem to identify what those natural sources actually are.  If this radiation is from Fukushima, it is only going to get worse over time.  Every single day, another 300 tons of highly radioactive water gets released into the Pacific Ocean at Fukushima.  Some of these radioactive elements have half-lives of about 30 years, so the total amount of radioactive material in the Pacific is continually growing and it will be with us for a very long time.  As this highly radioactive water hits the west coast of the United States, a lot of that nuclear material will end up being deposited on our beaches.  As you will see below, there is evidence that this is already happening.

Scientists all over the world have told us to expect a radioactive ocean plume from Fukushima to hit our shores at some point in 2014.  For example, check out what researchers at the University of South Wales are saying…


The first radioactive ocean plume released by the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster will finally be reaching the shores of the United States some time in 2014, according to a new study from the University of New South Wales — a full three or so years after the date of the disaster.

The following graphic comes from that study…

And another team of researchers has concluded that the plume of radiation from Fukushima that will be hitting our shores will “peak in 2016″…


Ocean simulations showed that the plume of radioactive cesium-137 released by the Fukushima disaster in 2011 could begin flowing into U.S. coastal waters starting in early 2014 and peak in 2016.

Unfortunately, there are lots of signs that this radioactive plume has already arrived.

Recently, a video that was taken at Pacific State Beach (also known as Surfers Beach) went viral all over the Internet.  That video showed that radiation levels near the water on that beach are up to five times higher than normal background radiation.

Since that time, a number of other researchers have gone over there to confirm these findings.  For example, an electrical engineer with 40 years of experience went down to the beach and measured radiation levels that were about 14 times higher than normal…


In a new development, El Granada electrical engineer Steven Weiss, a 40 year veteran designer of Geiger counters, took his own measurements and found hot spots that were returning levels 14 times normal background radiation.

“It’s not normal. I’ve never seen 400 cpm when I just wave my Geiger around.” Weiss told the Half Moon Bay Review. “There has to be something radioactive for it to do that.”

And just today I was made aware of another video taken at “Surfers Beach” which showed a peak reading of 380 CPM (counts per minute).  That is more than 10 times above the normal level.  You can watch that video right here.

In addition, back on December 24th one researcher measured a peak reading of 412 CPM on that same beach…



All of these readings are extremely unusual.

In fact, one news crew actually discovered that radiation levels at Surfers Beach are actually 7 times higher than just outside an active nuclear power plant in Diablo Canyon.  Just check out the following video…



Unfortunately, the federal government continues to insist that everything is perfectly fine and that we don’t have anything to worry about.

So independent researchers have stepped up to fill the void.

As you can see from the latest NETC map, elevated levels of radiation have been detected in many cities across the western half of the United States.

The government says that there is no reason for alarm.

Others are not so sure.

When it comes to nuclear radiation, a little bit can go a long way.  Just because you can’t see it does not mean that it can’t seriously hurt you.

If you doubt this, just ask those that served on the USS Ronald Reagan when it went over to Japan in the immediate aftermath of the Fukushima disaster.  The following is an excerpt from a recent Ecowatch article…


Senior Chief Michael Sebourn, a radiation-decontamination officer assigned to test the aircraft carrier, said that radiation levels measured 300 times higher than what was considered safe at one point. Meanwhile sailors like Lindsay Cooper have contrasted their initial and subsequent feelings upon seeing and tasting metallic “radioactive snow” caused by freezing Pacific air that mixed with radioactive debris.

“We joked about it: ‘Hey, it’s radioactive snow!” Cooper said. “My thyroid is so out of whack that I can lose 60 to 70 pounds in one month and then gain it back the next. My menstrual cycle lasts for six months at a time, and I cannot get pregnant.

“It’s ruined me.”

Cooper said the Reagan has a multimillion-dollar radiation-detection system, but the crew couldn’t get it activated quickly enough.

“And then we couldn’t go anywhere,” she said. “Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months.”

According to the New York Post, at least 70 members of the crew have been diagnosed with radiation sickness, and “at least half” of those have developed cancer…


At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.

“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.

If radioactive material from Fukushima is washing up on our shores, don’t we deserve the truth?

Or is the government so concerned about “keeping us calm” that they will lie to our faces while thousands upon thousands of Americans slowly but surely develop cancer and other horrible illnesses?

For much more on how radiation from Fukushima is already affecting us, please see my previous article entitled “36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast“.

Sadly, most Americans are totally clueless about all of this.

Most Americans just blindly believe whatever the mainstream media tells them to believe.

To illustrate this, political activist Mark Dice recently offered random people cold bottles of “Fukushima Imported Mineral Water” that were marked with a very large radiation label.  Check out what happened…



So what do you think?

Should we be concerned about the radioactive water that is crossing the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima?

So what do you think?

I think if it really were that bad, it would have been here a long time ago. 

By the way, what were the readings in California in 1945 and 1946?  Hawaii?

Think about how many nukes were detonated in the Pacific from 1946 (Operation Crossroads) to 1962 (Operation Dominic) and despite the anti-nuclear people then always protesting it, never was a major radiation spike detected in the water off California.

Water is the greatest moderator of radiation and given how much water there is in the Pacific, and compare that to how much water leaked into the ocean, it probably is on the order of a single drop going into a swimming pool.

Just because it is on the Internet, does not make it true.  In fact, it usually makes it BS.  This site is a tin foil hat, conspiracy theorist site for sure.

I'm still waiting on that "massive, radioactive plume" which was supposed to kill every living thing west of the Rocky Mountains.

And Three Mile Island was going to kill us all!  Then Chernobyl, then, then....you know-because!

Nuclear generated power is by far the most cost effective and safest way to generate power.  You'd think all the whiners would go for it instead of coal, etc, etc.  How many people have you ever heard that were killed mining uranium?  How about coal mines, oil and gas drilling?  No point in even discussing tilting at windmills, they don't produce enough to even come close to being viable.

I think the big thing here is the combined cover up of countries to make it seem the Fukushima accident was not as bad as it actually was.  Much of that, I would have to guess, was for the benefit of the Japanese people who are understandably a little touchy on the subject.

Would I live near Fukushima?  Not at all.  The area right around the plant is contaminated, just like the area around Chernobyl.

Chernobyl put out far more radioactive material than Fukushima has, and it put it out into the atmosphere.  It didn't wipe out life on Earth or even within the "Zone of Alienation" that was established around the plant, although close into the plant most things did die shortly after the explosions as would be expected.  Most of the radiation that leaked from Fukushima is due to the cooling water they had to dump on it to prevent a complete meltdown of the cores, and during the initial incident, steam being released from the cooling system to prevent explosions.

I think you are overlooking the fact that the Japanese are storing something like 400 tons a day of highly contaminated and radioactive water that they are pumping from the site continuously.  They have been building storage tanks on site for this water as fast as they can, and they are barely keeping up with the demand for new tanks, and doing nothing about the radioactive water they already have.  A moderate earthquake would likely cause a number of these temporary tanks to fail and that would cause any number of others to fail, with all of that highly radioactive debris and water washing freely into the Pacific. 

When that happens I think the release will make Chernobyl look like a backyard barbecue by comparison.

At this time, it hasn't happened.  The plan is to decontaminate the water in those tanks.

Even then, the amount of water being stored is still miniscule compared to how much water is in the Pacific Ocean.

So.  Just what were the measured values of radiation on California's sunny shore?

I would expect, in an article bad mouthing radiation of any sort, to at least provide a figure.

Articles without figures are usually so much BS.

Yep - sloppy reporting. And the 10 times scare figure - you'd probably get the same result if you compared the base levels in California and Colorado.
