Fukushima: The Extinction-Level Event That No One Is Talking About

On March 11, 2011, an earthquake of 9.0 magnitude struck off the coast of Japan, which triggered a devastating tsunami, leaving parts of the country in total chaos. Official reports claim that 15,891 people lost their lives, 6,152 were injured and 2,584 were reported missing.

It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan, and the fourth most powerful in the world, since records began in 1900.[1]

The earthquake was sopoweful that it shifted Honshu, the main island of Japan by an estimated eight feet and actually shifted the Earth’s axis by between four and ten inches![2]

Japan is keen on nuclear power, with around 30% of the nation’s electricity being supplied by it[3]and many of these reactors are on the coast.

The tsunami destroyed three of the six nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi facility, the cores of which melted within the first three days. In November 2011, the Japanese Science Ministry reported that radioactive cesium had contaminated 11,580 square miles of the land surface of Japan,[4] with an additional 4,500 square miles contaminated.[5]

Since then, these sites have been depositing nuclear waste into the Pacific Ocean - every single day for the past four years, the results of which are now becoming painfully obvious. Radioactive cesium (an alkali metal) continues to contaminates the ecosystem and poisons the entire food chain, with this waste offshoot being detected in Japanese foodstuffs over a 200 mile radius of the Daiichi facility.[6]

Cesium and other radioactive waste products are bioaccumulative, which means that they accumulate in an organism at a rate faster than the organism can get rid of it. Scarily the Japanese government and TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) have lied about the amount of radioactive waste that is leaking into the Pacific but the results are getting harder to ignore.

One of the sad reasons for the lack of action towards the situationis that no-one, not even the world's top scientists has the solution.

In March of 2015, the Times of London, reported that Akira Ono, the chief of the Fukushima power station admitted that the technology needed to decommission the three melted-down reactors does not exist, and he has no idea how it will be developed.[7]

Again recently, Naohiro Masuda, the decommissioning chief of the Fukushima Daiichi Decommissioning Company, also stated that the technology does not exist to remove the highly radioactive debris from the damaged reactors.

The Japan Times has reported on Feb 25th, 2015, that cesium and other radioactive waste was pouring from the reactor one site, directly into the ocean.[13] TEPCO did nothing to prevent the leak and simply ignored the problem for close to a year![14]

The official line is that no harmful radiation is being leaked, but the reality is a different matter.Sea life all along the west coast of the US is dying in alarming;y high numbers, and fish and sea creatures tested off the west coast have shown extremely high amounts of radioactivity, far in excess of what is considered safe. Although, there isn't really a 'safe' level of radiation.

 In 2013, the Huffington Post reported that massive amounts of krill washed up along the west coast in a 250 mile stretch from Oregon to California.[15] Krill is an essential to the ocean’s food chain. Damage to the bottom of the food chain leads to the rest of the chain dying off. Carcasses of dead sea lions and seals that were examined revealed high doses of radiation,[16]  and mainstream scientists claim they are 'baffled'.

In Nov, 2014, Ken Buesseler, of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution claimed:

My biggest concern is what’s going on in Japan today, and how that might make its way across to our coast. We know it’s still leaking because we’re measuring higher levels off Japan to this day.Even just the basic question, ‘How much radioactivity was released at Fukushima?’ I can’t answerthat today. We may never be able to because of the lack of sampling, particularly in the ocean.[22]

An experienced, veteran sailor by the name of Ivan Macfadyen, who has sailed the Pacific taking part in races, stated in an interview that:

It’s dead…for thousands of miles there was nothing [between US and Japan] like sailing in a dead sea…everything’s all gone. Just talking about it makes me feel like I want to cry. No birds, no fish, no sharks, no dolphins, no turtles, nothing.[23]
