Twenty-Eight Signs that the West Coast Is Being Fried By Fukushima Radiation

Fukushima-Radiation-300x180Activist Post presents what it considers to be evidence that the West Coast is being fried by radiation. What do you think? Panic-fueled hyperbole? Truth? Something in between?

Via Activist Post:

…all of this nuclear radiation will outlive all of us by a very wide margin. They are saying that it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster, and meanwhile countless innocent people will develop cancer and other health problems as a result of exposure to high levels of nuclear radiation. We are talking about a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is constantly getting worse. The following are 28 signs that the west coast of North America is being absolutely fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima…

1. Polar bears, seals and walruses along the Alaska coastline are suffering from fur loss and open sores…

Wildlife experts are studying whether fur loss and open sores detected in nine polar bears in recent weeks is widespread and related to similar incidents among seals and walruses.

The bears were among 33 spotted near Barrow, Alaska, during routine survey work along the Arctic coastline. Tests showed they had “alopecia, or loss of fur, and other skin lesions,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement.

    just make sure to eat lots of raw cannabis and everything will work out fine

  • Ted Heistman

    If its true I hope it leads to the end of nuclear power plants. It may not be true and it might still be used to that end, which sort of bothers me. Because I think Climate Change is that type of thing. Its exaggerated but its thought of as being for a good cause.

    What I am sick of is this morbid fascination with these things that provokes no other response than self righteousness finger pointing.

    I lived in that poisonous mental space for too long.

    So sometimes I play the devil’s advocate and look at these ecological narratives in new ways. But at the end of the day, I think Nuclear power is a bad idea.

    But I also think its true that Nature is resilient and will adapt. But that’s not to say that we should throw caution and stewardship to the wind. But the fucked upedness of the World has become more interesting to me of late. There is only so much I can do. But I think I can contribute in some way. Its better to work with Nature than to seek to dominate it on such a deep level as the atomic level. I just think that is hubris and will lead to more disasters. The human part of us that connects us to other living things does not live on the atomic level. Its suicide.

    • Lookinfor Buford

      As tempting as nuclear power is, the human factor, and waste management make it just too costly. I agree.

    • Simon Valentine

      i am soooo beyond dead, then, dear Heistman. deader than Dedekind! however, i know of something perhaps hidden in plain sight, in that there is obviously a need for attention to the obvious, for as you say, if persons as a people cannot even tend to ordering rocks, how on earth might they stand to live up to things of nigh-on infinite and infinitesimal proportions? there are many answers, yet so few touch on that you’ve found the asteroid belt of lies and gimmicks, without which (purportedly) many (purported) people (purportedly) die (in any number of inexplicable and directly interpersonal ways that {purportedly} profoundly affect … opinions. asteroids…). you see not ghosts so much as weak punk ass scum biped parasites who need trodden under hoof that something hitherto known as an ecological life cycle continues rather than ends.

      • Andrew

        Should individuals define themselves as weak punk ass scum biped parasites who need to be trodden under hoof? Should they commit suicide?

        • Simon Valentine

          there are many forms of transience, and suicide left as ill-defined as it may have been has, itself, committed itself to suicide. that the answer is not clear is the immediate answer is to be learned from the Socratic method praxis, or suchlike, in as much as persons occasionally accurately assess themselves to have behaved so rashly as to be weak punk ass scum biped parasites who need to be trodden under hoof.

          if key persons miraculously came-to and realized truth and justice, and knew that suicide was the only remaining solution to their crimes against humanity, would the humanity left behind be that much more reliant upon their criminal saviors lying scattered and dead? would quality of life improve?

    • Craig Bickford

      I am pretty sure I heard the other day that the UK is building their first new reactor in something like 40-50 years. It isn’t going away, maybe in japan.

      If something exists, it can be perverted to make a quick buck off.

      • Simon Valentine

        that the something is perverted is a fascinating motif, if a bit fetish. somehow “sexy criminal contortionist masterminds” doesn’t quite “drow with it”.

      Seek info on plutonium free Thorium LFTR reactors?

  • Juan

    Fucking horrifying, if true, and I suspect it is.
    People here in California are still going out for sushi and eating fish like it was perfectly fine. I will not.
    I am however out surfing at least four days per week. Just more horrible shit to be freaked out about . . .

    • Anarchy Pony

      Never would have guessed Juan was a surfer.

      • Juan

        Why is that?
        I am a water creature. I’m also a scuba instructor. I also have two basic sailing certifications. Love me some ocean:)

        • Anarchy Pony

          Just never noticed before I suppose.

        • steve bichler

          Time to move to the Keys.
          and try not to swallow any water when youre out in the ocean

  • BuzzCoastin

    it’s silly to think that something that happened way far away in Japan
    could possible effect something on the other side of the earth
    only a conspiracy theorist would think something like that

    besides, the Japanese have been good sheeple and
    didn’t complain nary a bit
    why should wee in the land of the free to be manipulated
    be any less submissive to our masters than they?

    Bill Molison used to suggest you go to a grocery store with a Geiger counter
    you’d be surprised how radioactive
    fresh and processed food is already &
    before Fukashima

    • echar

      It looks like a Geiger counter can be purchased for as low as $35 USD. I figured they would cost more, yet I wonder how effective the more affordable ones are.

      Should we be taking potassium Iodide pills before each meal? They appear to be rather affordable. Yet it is for short term use. I am only half serious.

      • Bluebird_of_Fastidiousness

        You should always get enough Iodine in your diet. Your thyroid needs it to function properly. They started putting it in salt just after the war. Funny coincidence. I tend to use kelp in all my cooking. That stuff is packed with goodness.

        • Rus Archer

          and iodized salt = horrible for you

      • Wessley Jauron

        what you need to purchase along with the iodine tablets is a radiac dosimeter, this will enable you to measure the total combined dose of your exposure so you can actually see where how many rads youve collected and with each amount its already established as to symptoms you should be showing from exposure to radiation, hair loss and open sores are acute signs of radiation poisoning, internally there liver and kidneys will soon shut down, if i remember correctly there lymphatic system has been severally damaged including the thyroid…. which is common in regards to radiation poisoning at this stage

        • UncleB

          Is this for acute exposure or accumulated exposure/

    • UncleB

      My Question: Where to go to calibrate your Geiger Counter to an absolute zero now that the radiation has already proliferated? Are you reading form a very much higher background already, and looking for even higher anomalies?

      • BuzzCoastin

        zero to background
        then
        point it at any imported cheese
        food irradiation
        has long been a part of US & EU food processing

      • steve bichler

        go to amazon and buy some remeasured ore. it tests between 35-45Msvt.
        I bought the Radex model 1212. Its self calibrating and tests the area every ten seconds. It was not in stock at amazon but I found them in stock at Newegg.com. about 250.00 bucks, great little unit.

    Nuclear power can be obtained through the use of small reactors that are not dependant on water cooling. Molten salt reactors can power 10,000 homes each, are installed below ground and make use of fissionable materials such as obsolete weapon cores or decommisioned military reactor cores( like subs use ). They use up virtually all the radioactive component (that would require costly disposal or internment) over their 30 year life, and have fail-safe systems to dump the fuel into a lower chamber where it can cool down- small scale means less heat and risk of melt- downs, especially if material is in pellet or granular form.

    Hercolubus: The Greatest Mystery Of The Modern Era

  • jasonpaulhayes

    Infant Mortality in The Pacific Northwest increased by 10k+ cases over what previous averages were. In all likelihood and as documents under review would suggest… between 14k-20k people from Alaska to Canada and the US have already died from fallout released from Fukushima.

    3 Signs This Article Is A Hoax

    #1 The map uses forum posts of CPM (counts per minute) of radiation which says nothing of the intensity of that radiation. 300 CPM could be completely harmless but would show up as a warning sign on the map. The source website admits that the information may also be inaccurate. Finally the source website charges money for this information and acts as an early warning system – so the site owners have a vested interested in reporting high levels of radiation.

    #2 Alopecia seen in Polar Bears, Walruses, etc.. in Alaska is believed to be caused by pathogens moving into Alaska as a result of rising temperatures from global warming. The link provided even says that preliminary studies “do not support” a link to Fukushima.

    #3 The bleeding of fish “all over the west coast” is an exaggeration and is also linked to a pathogen (VHS) common to fish in those regions. The linked article says that the DFO is “trying to confirm” a single report by a biologist who brought up a single net of 100 fish with these symptoms in the ocean surrounding northern Vancouver island. One net of fish in northern Vancouver island does not equate to “all over the west coast”. This claim was not even confirmed. Furthermore the biologists who caught the fish suspects the bleeding is caused by Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia Virus (VHSV) and makes no mention of radiation at all.

    All of these sources contradict the general claim that these are “signs” of radiation. None of them are signs of that and repeated testing of the fish and wildlife on the west coast for radiation has demonstrated no such threat.
