Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean (And It’s Going To Get Worse)

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years. – READ MORE

    The sky is falling…..Again.

    We are all doomed. If the sky doesn’t fall on us, our fatal flaws will do us in!

    This cover up will last until there is no need to cover it up anymore….
    Then who will be the winner????

    In Tokyo, doctors are not allowed to give interviews to any media….

    Dilution people. The Pacific is very big and the radiation wasn’t concentrated on a surface in the ocean. Its detectable. It is also hundreds if not more times less than natural radiation in the pacific ocean. Still Nuclear power is statistically the cleanest, safest and proven most reliable means of low carbon base-load energy production. By far.

    The picture has nothing to do with radiation. The article it links to is full of misinformation, misunderstandings and ignorance. Waste of time.

    The laughable COP21 did not consider the effect of this nuclear catastrophe on global warming..Instead, Hussein Obama just aimed at engaging the US and other countries in paying billions for decades, in fact ignoring the real issues and twisting the facts in order to better harm the free world and the struggling economies of developing countries. What a mad, mad world!

    You are the worst scaremonger on Fukushima Radiation.

  • Aaron Sinclair

    Agreed! Fatal flaws like not checking the sources & falling for BS will indeed do us in!

  • Grunt with a PhD-MBA

    I agree however, the radiation data provided by Japan has been incorrect. A true estimate of the initial followed by ongoing contaminated water is really unknown, they are just best geusstimates. Still, I wonder what the effect on ocean wildlife will ultimately be?

    Radioactive seawater near the west coast of North America … from Fukushima contamination … is about 10 or less mBq/litre of seawater.
    Natural 210Polonium’s radioactivity in seawater is about 2000 mBq/litre. 40Potassium is about 11,000 mBq/litre. So, natural, uncontaminated seawater is about 13,000 mBq/l and Fukushima adds about 10 (or less) …
