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

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

The nuclear disaster has contaminated the world’s largest ocean in only five years and it’s still leaking 300 tons of radioactive waste every day.

An energy map provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows the intensity of the tsunami in the Pacific Ocean caused by the magnitude 8.9 earthquake which struck Japan on March 11, 2011. Thousands of people fled their homes along the Pacific coast of North and South America on Friday as a tsunami triggered by Japan's massive earthquake reached the region but appeared to spare it from major damage.

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.

If that weren’t bad enough, Fukushima continues to leak an astounding 300 tons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean every day. It will continue do so indefinitely as the source of the leak cannot be sealed as it is inaccessible to both humans and robots due to extremely high temperatures.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Fukushima has contaminated the entire Pacific Ocean in just five years. This could easily be the worst environmental disaster in human history and it is almost never talked about by politicians, establishment scientists, or the news. It is interesting to note that TEPCO is a subsidiary of General Electric (also known as GE), one of the largest companies in the world, which has considerable control over numerous news corporations and politicians alike. Could this possibly explain the lack of news coverage Fukushima has received in the last five years? There is also evidence that GE knew about the poor condition of the Fukushima reactors for decades and did nothing. This led 1,400 Japanese citizens to sue GE for their role in the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Even if we can’t see the radiation itself, some parts of North America’s western coast have been feeling the effects for years. Not long after Fukushima, fish in Canada began bleeding from their gills, mouths, and eyeballs. This “disease” has been ignored by the government and has decimated native fish populations, including the North Pacific herring. Elsewhere in Western Canada, independent scientists have measured a 300% increase in the level of radiation. According to them, the amount of radiation in the Pacific Ocean is increasing every year. Why is this being ignored by the mainstream media? It might have something to do with the fact that the US and Canadian governments have banned their citizens from talking about Fukushima so “people don’t panic.”

Further south in Oregon, USA, starfish began losing legs and then disintegrating entirely when Fukushima radiation arrived there in 2013. Now, they are dying in record amounts, putting the entire oceanic ecosystem in that area at risk. However, government officials say Fukushima is not to blame even though radiation in Oregon tuna tripled after Fukushima. In 2014, radiation on California beaches increased by 500 percent. In response, government officials said that the radiation was coming from a mysterious “unknown” source and was nothing to worry about.

However, Fukushima is having a bigger impact than just the West coast of North America. Scientists are now saying that the Pacific Ocean is already radioactive and is currently at least 5-10 times more radioactive than when the US government dropped numerous nuclear bombs in the Pacific during and after World War II. If we don’t start talking about Fukushima soon, we could all be in for a very unpleasant surprise.

    What “Global Warming”? It just make sense why those massive ice in the Arctic is slowly melting (60 Minutes on CBS had a segment last Sunday). The Radioactive Waste is heating up the Pacific Ocean like a giant cooking pot. “Signs of the time” perhaps?

    Just like the government to keep secrets they figure the they keep us in the dark the more they can get away with

    I don’t want to sound preachy, but this is a sign of the end of time. People have turned their backs on God and for those of us who believe in him know full well that he is the only one who can fix this mess. How? By believing in him, by praying to him and not turning your back on him. God created the world so what makes us think that he can’t fix any problem in it? Please pray that he solves this huge problem in the Pacific. It makes me sad that our world is falling apart more and more each day. God help us.

    300 tons/day for 5 years? That’s ~550,000 tons so far. How much radioactive material does this one plant have?

    I hope this does start a debate so more information becomes available. I find those numbers difficult to believe…

    Oh, and the ‘sign of the end times’ bit shows religion’s true colors. It’s sickening not only that people believe that, but that they want to believe it…

  6. Shaun on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:04 am 

    Fear mongering, it’s been a strategy since the 80’s now much more so with the Internet.
    That nuclear plant did/does now have that much materials…not that I’m a fan of nuclear power, it’s very inefficient and wasteful and a risk…there is better ways of creating/harnessing energy like magnetic and gravity and zero point, etc…radiation is misunderstood as well…limited amounts of radiation can be therapeutic and also there are peoples in Chernobyl thriving right now and Hiroshima/Nagasaki…I think the seafood from fish farms is unhealthy as they use cheap GMO foods and antibiotics and synthetics…

    “Fear mongering, it’s been a strategy since the 80’s now much more so with the Internet.”

    Warning about the sometimes terrible consequences of our actions, and about those who try to minimise those warnings, has been a strategy for survival since pre-history, for all the good it does. Every generation has its fucking idiots.

  8. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:18 am 

    This image is not from radiation, it is a prediction of the maximum wave amplitude of the actual earthquake itself, long before the disaster.

    The disaster is a global catastrophe but fear mongering makes people stop listening.

    It is time to stop building any more nuclear power plants and clean up the ones that already exist.

    It’s bullshit.

    They are trying to fool you with bogus graphics.

  14. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:23 am 

    You are traitors to the earth, PO. Stop misleading your readers.

  15. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:24 am 

    NOAA put out that graphic about the tidal wave long before the radiation leaked.

  16. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:24 am 

    Why do you feel you have to make stuff up to prove a point?

  17. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:25 am 

    You should delete this shameful graphic and post some real science…or do you not have any?

  18. Fear Monger on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:25 am 

    And it leaked 300 tons perday…in 2013. What about now? Old news PO. Shameful

  19. flarg on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 11:35 am 

    That tidal map… because radiation is measured in centimeters. Please stop spilling your stupidity on an otherwise intelligent conversation.

  20. drwater on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 6:35 pm 

    What a bullshit piece.

    Even in the link from this story to the “300% increase…” had this retraction right up front:

    (Editor: This story has rectified information on how levels of radioactive iodine-131 detected in the air in Canada after Fukushima compared with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s ceiling for iodine-131. The original story mistakenly said that ceiling was exceeded. We regret the error.)

  21. bob on Tue, 4th Oct 2016 8:22 pm 

    Here’s a possible way to stop 300 tons of radioactive waste water from entering the Pacific Ocean each and every day. First evacuate the site, then drop a Hydrogen bomb on it. That will vaporize the molten fuel rods and solve the problem. Of course the side effect is fallout but its short lived (no pun intended) by comparison.

    ^ He has a point!

    “That tidal map… because radiation is measured in centimeters. Please stop spilling your stupidity on an otherwise intelligent conversation.”

    ^ NOAA has the actual radiation map available to the public.

    All in all, either you are getting robbed trillions of dollars in tax payer money to fuel nuclear reactors and they are money laundering, or this is a tactic to discredit valuable information that is apart of a process to depopulated.

    Anyone else notice red clouds at night?

  23. guyzun on Wed, 5th Oct 2016 8:33 am 

    Mr Fear Monger is correct. This is a graph on Tsunami wave height. The chart is in centimeters over south america. Its nonsense that the graph is twisted in this manner. That said, Fukushima is a disaster. It makes a very good case for migrating our existing nuke plants to Thorium and away from Uranium. The sooner we do that the safer this world will be.

    i wanna die

  26. peakyeast on Wed, 5th Oct 2016 11:07 am 

    The radiation is measured in centimeters because of the thickness of the concentrated layer of radioactive materials on the ocean floor. It is obvious the layer will be thinner and thinner the further you get away.


    I really do not understand why this particular article attracts so many comments – as noted in about 200x of the comments: Its outdated bogus.

  27. ghung on Wed, 5th Oct 2016 11:39 am 

    CM = Counts per Minute?

  28. Heather on Thu, 6th Oct 2016 6:00 pm 

    Please stop spreading this map of tide level as a radiation map. You are lying and spreading fear for no reason.

    Are there people who understand currents here? That’s not radiation, is tsnunam propagation.

  32. Kestris on Thu, 20th Oct 2016 7:13 pm 

    This isn’t a photo of radiation. This is a photo of *tsunami propagation*.

    Radiation and ocean currents don’t work like this.

  33. peakyeast on Thu, 20th Oct 2016 7:20 pm 

    @mary, kestris et al.

    READ the comments – almost every second comment points that out – and has been doing it for a looong time.

  34. Leon Worden on Sat, 22nd Oct 2016 10:57 am 

    300 tons (it’s actually been reduced to about 150 tons now) is the amount of groundwater that flows through the contaminated area and reaches the ocean. It is not the amount of “radioactive waste.”

  35. FakeNewsHunter on Mon, 21st Nov 2016 11:57 am 

    This is just another fake news rag, see where the scary image really came from

  36. Michael Fowler on Sat, 18th Mar 2017 2:49 pm 

    Clean up this Problem ! Now , get some real professionals to come in and clean up this Mess ! Clearly you idiots don’t know what your doing ! Who let this plant be built on a Earthquake fault zone ! You should’ve never been allowed to have Nuclear power ! You don’t have the right back up systems ! Or even had any Idea what your dealing with ! Fix it Now ~ The whole Pacific Ocean is Dieing Because of Your stupidly , and If you ever want to eat Sushi again ! Ask For Help Now ! Its Not about your fucking Honor 🙁 We need it fixed NOW

  37. on Mon, 18th Sep 2017 9:26 am 

    of course like your website however you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come again again.

  38. Roger Carpenter on Sat, 5th May 2018 11:06 pm 

    Makati1 and Lisa are well informed and recognize a potential/probable mass extinction event when they see one. So do I! Comments made flippantly by uneducated people that the data is somehow flawed and that there’s nothing to worry about are ignorant at best. I don’t think that the press would be saying much about this EVEN IF OUR GOVERNMENT ALLOWED THEM TO( Yes, Virginia, THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS DEAD WHERE THE MEDIA IS CONCERNED). That’s because the media doesn’t know how to tell us that WE’RE ALL DEAD PEOPLE WALKING! The old adage “If it bleeds, it leads” applies only to situations in which the victims are “other people” However, WHEN THE POTENTIAL FOR THE EXTINCTION OF THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE IS THE TOPIC OF DISCUSSION, WITH “EXPERTS” UNABLE TO OFFER SOLUTIONS, THE MEDIA WOULD PREFER TO DISCUSS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN ACTUALLY SOLVE, LIKE IMPEACHING OUR LYING, SACK OF SHIT PRESIDENT, FOR EXAMPLE.
    FOR THE DENIERS: The Pacific’s tide pools, from Monterey, CA to Alaska, were home to hundreds of species of marine life Pre-Fukushima. Starfish, Crabs, Anenomes, small fish etc. thrived in thousands of these pools. I invite ALL of you to watch a few recent videos of these tide pools. THEY ARE DEVOID OF LIFE! Only 7 years after FUCKYOUSHIMA! Imagine another 20 years of radioactive releases of 400 tons of highly radioactive water going into the Pacific! I’m relatively old and will probably die a natural death. But what about today’s young people and the future of the planet? Most of you are probably ignorant of the role that Oceanic Plankton play in our Ecosystem, so I’ll tell you: Plankton remove CO2 from the atmosphere and create a third of the World’s Oxygen. The Radiation will eventually kill all of the plankton. This will be the Death Knell for the World’s Oceans, and probably ALL life except bacteria. That’s because the atmosphere will heat up due to increasing levels of CO2, while we’ll have to adapt not only to 140 degree summer days, but also adapt to air as thin as that currently found at 15,000 feet!
    And so, when(if) you wake up one July day in 2030, drenched in sweat and gasping for air, don’t say I didn’t warn you!
