Fukushima Radiation Hits San Francisco

This shocking video was taken December 23rd 2013 with a quality Geiger Counter at Pacifica State Beach (Surfers Beach), California.


Geiger Counter used:

Background radiation is 30 CPM. Near the ocean it’s 150 CPM. The fine mist coming from the ocean waves seems to be what makes the Geiger Counter jump.

Fukushima radiation disaster info:

Massive starfish deaths on West Coast:

We all must come to the realization that swimming in the Pacific Ocean (let alone eating anything out of it) is a thing in the past. And it’s only going to get worse, as it’s unstoppable. This is by far the worst man-made disaster in human history, and our garbage media and government say nothing.


 36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast

The west coast of the United States is being absolutely fried by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the mainstream media is not telling us the truth about this. What you are about to see is a collection of evidence that is quite startling. Taken collectively, this body of evidence shows that nuclear radiation from Fukushima is affecting sea life in the Pacific Ocean and animal life along the west coast of North America in some extraordinary ways. But the mainstream media continues to insist that we don’t have a thing to worry about. The mainstream media continues to insist that radiation levels in the Pacific and along the west coast are perfectly safe. Are they lying to us?  Evaluate the evidence compiled below and come to your own conclusions…

#1 Independent researchers have measured alarmingly high levels of radiation on the beaches of the west coast.  For example, the video posted below was taken on December 23rd, 2013 at Pacifica State Beach.  As you can see in this video, radiation levels near the water are up to five times higher than normal background radiation…


#2 According to Oceanus Magazine, the total amount of cesium-137 that has been released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima is 10,000 to 100,000 times greater than the amount released into the oceans by the Chernobyl disaster or by the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests of the 1960s.
#3 Former MSNBC host Cenk Uygur has admitted that while he was at MSNBC he was instructed not to warn the public about the radiation coming from Fukushima

“I was on MSNBC at the time when this happened, I said, “Don’t trust what the Japanese government is saying, they’ll say trust what the electric power company is saying. Go, go, go, get outta there. Get as far away from that plant as you can. It’s literally a core meltdown.” And they always don’t want people to panic, so they were always like, “Oh it’s going to be okay.” […] I’m like, “You’re crazy man, don’t be anywhere near that reactor.” And I remember at the time, of course not at The Young Turks, but on cable news, people were like, “Hey Cenk, you know, I don’t know that you want to say that, because the official government position is that it’s safe.” Oh, is that the official government position? Now go explain that to the people who served on the USS Ronald Reagan.”

#4 71 U.S. sailors who assisted with the initial Fukushima relief efforts have developed serious diseases such as testicular cancer, thyroid cancer, Leukemia, “unremitting gynecological bleeding” and brain tumors since that time as a result of exposure to radiation coming from Fukushima.

#5 Something is causing starfish all along the west coast of the United States to literally disintegrate into piles of “white goo“…

Researchers say nuclear pollution from the 2011 earthquake in Japan that damaged the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant could be partially to blame for a disease wiping out starfish along the West Coast.

Dr. Peter Raimondi of the University of Santa Cruz says something is making starfish susceptible to whats believed to be a bacteria coined “Wasting Disease.” It essentially disintegrate the marine invertebrates into a white goo, after the starfish loses its legs.

#6 Bald eagles are dying in unprecedented numbers in Utah, and nobody can figure out why this is happening…

Bald eagles are dying in Utah — 20 in the past few weeks alone — and nobody can figure out why.

Hundreds of the majestic birds — many with wing spans of 7 feet or more — migrate here each winter, gathering along the Great Salt Lake and feasting on carp and other fish that swim in the nearby freshwater bays.

Earlier this month, however, hunters and farmers across five counties in northern and central Utah began finding the normally skittish raptors lying listless on the ground. Many suffered from seizures, head tremors and paralysis in the legs, feet and wings.

#7 Huge numbers of dead birds are dropping dead and washing up along the coastlines of Alaska.  It is being reported that many of the carcases of the dead birds are “broken open and bleeding”.

#8 The recent deaths of thousands of birds in Oregon is absolutely baffling scientists.

#9 Something is causing large numbers of seals and walruses up in Alaska to lose hair and develop “oozing sores”.

#10 Substantial numbers of polar bears along the coast of Alaska are suffering from fur loss and open sores.

#11 There is an epidemic of sea lion deaths along the California coastline.

#12 The population of sockeye salmon along the coastlines of Alaska is at a “historic low”.

#13 Something is causing Pacific herring to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.

#14 Dangerous levels of cesium-137 have been discovered in mushrooms and berries grown along the west coast.

#15 According to an absolutely shocking report put out by the National Academy of Sciences, it has been proven that Pacific Bluefin tuna have transported radioactive material “across the entire North Pacific Ocean”…

“We report unequivocal evidence that Pacific Bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis, transported Fukushima-derived radionuclides across the entire North Pacific Ocean.”

#16 Something seems to be causing a substantial spike in the death rate for killer whales living off of the coast of British Columbia.

#17 Experts have found very high levels of cesium-137 in plankton living in the waters of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and the west coast.

#18 One test in California found that 15 out of 15 Bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.

#19 Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…

  • 73 percent of the mackerel
  • 91 percent of the halibut
  • 92 percent of the sardines
  • 93 percent of the tuna and eel
  • 94 percent of the cod and anchovies
  • 100 percent of the carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish

#20 An EU-funded study concluded that Fukushima released up to 210 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 into the atmosphere.

#21 One very experienced Australian adventurer has stated that he felt as though “the ocean itself was dead” as he journeyed from Japan to San Francisco recently…

The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

“Part of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And it’s still out there, everywhere you look.”

#22 It is being projected that the radioactivity of coastal waters off the U.S. west coast could double over the next five to six years.

#23 The deputy chairman of Russia’s State Duma Committee for Natural Resources, Maxim Shingarkin, says that seafood captured off the northwest coast of the United States is so radioactive that it represents a “danger for mankind”…

Currents in the world ocean are so structured that the areas of seafood capture near the U.S. northwest coast are more likely to contain radioactive nuclides than even the Sea of Okhotsk, which is much closer to Japan. These products are the main danger for mankind because they can find their way to people’s tables on a massive scale.

#24 According to one recent scientific report, radiation from Fukushima could affect our seafood for “many generations” and ultimately kill more than a million people…

This cycle will last for many generations, because of the food chain of fish and other marine fauna, and the radioactivity will be recycled and in fact the meat content will increase rather than decreasing by decay. Even if only one one-hundredth of the radioactivity (more than 1e15 Bq of CS137) were to enter this recirculation pattern, the collective whole body ingestion dose over many generations would exceed 1e7 Sv, sufficient to kill more than 1,000,000 people.

#25 The Japanese government has estimated that approximately 300 tons of highly radioactive water is pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility every single day.

#26 A senior researcher of marine chemistry at the Japan Meteorological Agency’s Meteorological Research Institute says that “30 billion becquerels of radioactive cesium and 30 billion becquerels of radioactive strontium” are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day.

#27 According to Tepco, a total of somewhere between 20 trillion and 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean since the Fukushima disaster first began.

#28 According to a professor at Tokyo University, 3 gigabecquerels of cesium-137 are flowing into the port at Fukushima Daiichi every single day.

#29 It is being projected that significant levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean by the year 2020.

#30 It has been estimated that the entire Pacific Ocean will soon “have cesium levels 5 to 10 times higher” than what we witnessed during the era of heavy atomic bomb testing in the Pacific many decades ago.

#31 The immense amount of radioactive material being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima has caused environmental activist Joe Martino to issue the following warning

Your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.

#32 The Iodine-131, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 that are constantly being released from Fukushima are going to affect the health of those living in the northern hemisphere for a very, very long time.  Just consider what Harvey Wasserman had to say about this…

Iodine-131, for example, can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40 percent of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth.

Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.

Cesium-137 from Fukushima has been found in fish caught as far away as California. It spreads throughout the body, but tends to accumulate in the muscles.

Strontium-90’s half-life is around 29 years. It mimics calcium and goes to our bones.

#33 Outdoor radiation levels at Fukushima recently hit a new all-time high.

#34 According to the Wall Street Journal, it is being projected that the cleanup of Fukushima could take up to 40 years to complete.

#35 Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be threatened “for thousands of years”

Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.

#36 There are very alarming reports that new “unexplained plumes of radioactive steam” are rising at Fukushima.  Japanese officials are not able to get inside and see what is causing these plumes.  Some are speculating that the crisis at Fukushima just got a whole lot worse.  The following is from a recent Ecologist article

Unexplained plumes of radioactive steam have been rising from Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3, Could a major meltdown be on the way?

Fukushima’s Reactor Building 3 exploded on 13th March 2011 as a result of a hydrogen buildup, breaching the building’s containment and emitting a huge plume of radiation. The reactor itself is in meltdown.

And now fresh plumes of steam have been seen coming out the structure. These have now been confirmed by Tepco, the owner of the nuclear plant, from 19th December onwards. The company believes the steam is coming from the fifth floor of the building.

However it does not know the cause of the steam. Lethal levels of radiation and the physical damage to the structure have so far made entry and inspection impossible.

If a full-blown meltdown does happen at Fukushima, it would be an environmental disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in human history.

As we enter 2014, we are entering a time when the world is becoming increasingly unstable.  The global economy is being shaken, political corruption is seemingly everywhere, evidence of advanced social decay is all around us and the earth itself is starting to groan and crack with increasingly regularity.  But the mainstream media continues to insist that everything is going to be just fine.  That is one of the reasons why I wrote my new novel.  The American people deserve to hear the truth and be warned about the great challenges that are rapidly approaching.

In the end, millions upon millions of people could end up getting seriously ill as a result of all of this radiation coming from Fukushima.  Most of them will never even know why they have gotten sick.
And if there is a major earthquake or a significant accident during the cleanup at Fukushima, we could actually see huge sections of Japan be evacuated permanently.

It would be hard to overstate just how serious all of this is.  But you won’t hear about this from the mainstream media.  Their story is that “everything is okay” and they are sticking to it.

    It’s like a biblical plague for animals. Humans cause tremendous suffering and death across the myriad species.

    “In the end, millions upon millions of people could end up getting seriously ill as a result of all of this radiation coming from Fukushima. Most of them will never even know why they have gotten sick”
    Already happening due to chemical pollution and pesticides, now we have another source of cancers, deformed children and general ill health.

    Nuclear energy is too dangerous and too costly……

    TEPCO and the government of Japan were not honest and open about the scope of the disaster on day one and they have not been honest and open since then…

    This is an ongoing disaster with no end in sight……..

    CPM means clicks per minute. Did those clicks come from cosmic rays, naturally occurring radioactive materials in the sand or was it from Fukushima?

    Clicks per minute tells you nothing! The ocean water is full of naturally occurring uranium, and potassium. Naturally occurring thorium and radon is often also present in sand. Until you know what caused the clicks you cannot say what the source is. Also Clicks how many miliSeverts of radiation is present. His highest CPM reading may have actually been within the naturally occurring background radiation level.

    The radiation content of the nucleotides at Fukushima are 360 million curries. Ingested, one milli-currie is considered fatal to a human being. This entire radioactive stockpile has no were to go but the Pacific. As radioactive elements do not dilute in a biological system, they move up the food chain, the Pacific region could become uninhabitable to higher life forms for tens of thousands of years.

    Great. Salmon is a major food source and staple for our family. We were going to stop taking chum next fall until we could determine contamination levels. (Chum range as far west as Siberia). We’ll just have to see how it unfolds. If this contamination worsens or unfolds to this degree, expect some serious backlash for the Japanese. I say this only from how I feel about it all. I am glad to live on the east side of Vancouver Island, but my best friend lives in Uclulet…..Japan next stop. This is hitting pretty close to home.

    For a counterpoint, check out this link by a marine biologist:

    28 fallacies about the Fukushima nuclear disaster’s effect on the US West Coast

    “To put things in perspective, the Fukushima disaster released approximately one ten-thousandth of the total radiation produce by the world’s coal power plants annually. That number will either be reassuring or terrifying, but, really, it should be both.”

    In summary, yes, the Fukushima accident was/is a catastrophe, but saying the West Coast of the US is being fried by radiation is pure BS.

    surf says “CPM means clicks per minute. Did those clicks come from cosmic rays, naturally occurring radioactive materials in the sand or was it from Fukushima?

    Clicks per minute tells you nothing! ”

    surf, it’s the difference between normal background and currently measured. Simple science, just subtract.

    Denial is rampant in the nuclear crowd too. That the US government quit publishing the radiation monitoring of the West Coast and raised the allowable levels of radiation in their laws should tell you that it is not good.

    ALL nuclear plants should be shut down NOW, while we still can. Won’t happen. The nuclear industry (GE) is one of your masters and it would cost too much money/profits to do so. They don’t care if you die. It is just more added to the GDP as you pay doctors and then funeral expenses.

    I looked over some of the 36 items listed, and I was seriously underwhelmed by the evidence given.. Shocking tag lines, to be sure, but when you actually read the articles, there’s only dubious chains of causality. For example, #6 says that *something* is killing Bald Eagles in Utah. Yes, that is true, but is it radiation from Fukushima – or something less radioactive like …. West Nile Virus? (The West Nile Virus is the actual reason).

    Then there’s number 15 *absolutely shocking* report that Bluefin Tuna have been caught that show Cs-137 from Fukushima. Yes, the jump in Cs-137 in the tuna is doubtlessly caused by Fukushima – but is a huge jump, or a very, very tiny jump in the amount of radiation? Well, if you take the time to actually READ the report and UNDERSTAND the levels of radiation being discussed, you find that the amount of radiation in the tuna is still ENTIRELY SAFE. The radiation level measured is 6.3 Bq per kilogram. That means if you eat a half-pound of that tuna, you’d eat about 2 Becquerels. How much is that? Well, when you eat a typical banana or potato, your eating about **30** Becquerels of radiation from K-40 and C-14 – both naturally occurring radioisotopes.

    Massive bubble in shark attacks in Hawaii / Makena

  11. SilentRunning on Mon, 6th Jan 2014 1:48 am 

    By The Way: Who is responsible for the selection of the graphic tag for Fukushima articles that STILL shows this completely false map showing radiation plumes from Fukushima that would have killed 100 million people? Last time I checked, California has not been depopulated from the meltdowns in Japan.

    Does even care anymore about its integrity?

    Pronukers delude themselves and lie to us.

    Pronukers kill your children

  13. SilentRunning on Mon, 6th Jan 2014 1:54 am 

    Hey stock:

    Ok, so shark attacks are up in HI.

    Is Fukushima the reason – or is there another possible explanation like industrial over-fishing?

  14. SilentRunning on Mon, 6th Jan 2014 2:12 am 

    Hey stock:
    >Pronukers delude themselves and lie to us.

    >Pronukers kill your children

    Stock – I’ve lost count of how many children I have maliciously killed. The number must be in the 10s of thousands. And like anyone who doesn’t buy into the rabidly anti-scientific hysteria industry, my bloodlust is insatiable. I won’t be happy til every human child is irradiated to death. That’s just the way I roll…

    I mean really! I am against most nuke plants that are out there. I’m against them because I understand that most of them are being operated unsafely by giant corporate interests, and we stand the chance of having more Fukushima incidents around the planet as more aging reactors are pushed beyond the limits of safe engineering practice in the interests of “get more money out of them before we shut them off”. That’s dangerously short-sighted to the point of criminality. Fukushima is an ecological and economic disaster for Japan.

    We don’t need to make up hysteria about Fukushima – the reality is quite bad enough. Crying “wolf! wolf! wolf!” by saying that millions of people will die on the US West Coast will DISCREDIT and DAMAGE the anti-nuke position when those things don’t happen.

  15. Makati1 on Mon, 6th Jan 2014 8:05 am 

    Silaent, you appear to be an investor in nuclear. Too bad if that is correct. If so, you are part of the problem instead of the solution.

  16. Kenz300 on Mon, 6th Jan 2014 6:53 pm 

    The disasters at Chernobyl and Fukishima should make all people question the propaganda of nuclear power advocates and their cheap power slogans. Chernobyl is building another new containment structure at a cost of over a billion dollars. This is 25 years after the original disaster. There is no end in sight to the cost and damage from this nuclear disaster.

    TEPCO and the government of Japan have a 40 year plan to dismantle, clean up and store the nuclear waste from the disaster. How much will it cost to store that nuclear waste FOREVER? No society can afford nuclear energy. It is too costly and too dangerous.

    Had those power plants been either wind or solar there would have been no need for evacuation caused by the radiation cloud, no continuing radiation exposure risks, and the plants and surrounding areas would have already been cleaned up and producing power.

    Nuclear energy has been a hoax played on the world with the promise of cheap energy…….. The truth is that is it the most expensive and dangerous power that can be provided.

  17. Hide Behind on Fri, 10th Jan 2014 4:30 pm 

    are notvfound outside t and foremost the biggest lie is semantics,
    I wish the banana boys would confine their remarks upon radiation to the nights they . Use them on each other.
    Not scholarly statement but they do not even deserve that much concideration, as they want
    self gratification over the best interest of all.
    Each of us are unique human beings and there are no true genetic copies and unto each have
    been granted slight imperfections .
    Those imperfections are mostly levels of tolerances to our environmental conditions.
