Galt, the master of Spin doctoring and out of context quoting strikes again.

As usual, the article he quotes snippets from says a lot more than the brainwashed " Nukes are great" one eyed position he has.

It's always prudent to read an article Glat quotes from to understand what it really says which is usually the opposite of what he tries to make out.

The devastation and effect on the planet will never be admitted to but will be huge. The amount of deaths from cancer will skyrocket in the next 20 years from radiation and particles that come from the worlds greatest Fkup and unprecedented disaster but while authorities will know the real cause it will never be admitted to.

It stuns me that the world is concerned about a few chemical weapons being used but ignores this disaster that absolutely and without question is well capable of altering and ending life on earth as we know it.

Greenies and environmentalists worry about CO2 and plastic bottles in the ocean while the amount of radiation Fukushima is leaking will spread and contaminate every ocean in a few years and there will be no escape from it. Some morons however will still argue how safe and clean nuke power is and claim how few people have died when there was a deliberate effort not to count them in the first place. With idiots like this on the earth, it's no wonder corporations can get away with killing the planet like this.

If another Tsunami hits that place, as is inevitable and more likely as each day passes, the problems they have now are going to look like a mosquito bite on a buffalo's butt. They aren't doing a thing to fix the problem, they are just putting bandaids on something that needs major surgery.

How this situation isn't a world priority atm just goes to show how corrupt and money hungry the whole planet has become.

Japan's New Nuclear Leak Plan

Apparently the plan is: freeze radiation in place?

And this has what to do with the the greatest industrial disaster the world has known that you want to stick your head in your nether regions and try to downplay it with ridiculous mis quotes?

I think one should pronounce FUKUPPY as 2 separate words, the firs 3 letters being the first word. Jim.

"Fukushima is the most terrifying situation I can imagine," he said.

"Three out of the four plants were destroyed in the earthquake and in the tsunami. The fourth one has been so badly damaged that the fear is, if there's another earthquake of a seven or above that, that building will go and then all hell breaks loose.

"And the probability of a seven or above earthquake in the next three years is over 95 per cent."

Suzuki said that an international team of experts needs to go into the Fukushima plant and help fix the problem, but said the Japanese government has "too much pride to admit that."

"I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it's bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate," he said.

"If that isn't terrifying, I don't know what is."

Suzuki's warning came as radiation from the Fukushima plant has been detected in northern Alaska and along the west coast, CBC News reported.

Radiation in Alaskan waters could reach Cold War levels, said Douglas Dasher, a researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, although John Kelley, a professor emeritus at the same university, doesn't seem as certain that it will reach dangerous levels for humans.

"The data they will need is not only past data but current data, and if no one is sampling anything then we won't really know it, will we," he told the network.

Is it safe to eat the sushi? Answers to your questions about Fukushima radiation
By Dan Fumano, The Province January 20, 2014
http://www.theprovince.com/new...n/9401912/story.html
The Bottom Line: Measurable amounts of isotopes from Fukushima have travelled across the Pacific. But you will receive a more substantial dose of radiation during a an airplane flight — from normal cosmic radiation — than swimming off the coast of Tofino.

Suzuki is a moron and a hypocrite, anything coming out of his mouth should be heard with a very skeptical ear...

As for the suggestion that Japan would be destroyed and the West Coast would require evacuation, UBC nuclear and particle physicist David Measday told Vice: “I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous. It's totally impossible! I can't believe he would say that. When he's in his own field, he's usually reasonable. But this is just crazy.”

In his own field... lol and what would that be...Perhaps promoting CFL light bulbs...

State: FDA study finds Alaska fish safe from Fukushima radiation

By ALEX DeMARBAN

alex@alaskadispatch.comJune 27, 2014

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found that Alaska seafood is safe from Fukushima radiation, but a citizen's group plans to conduct a separate study of the water in lower Cook Inlet using a crowdsource funding site.

"The (FDA) results confirm information from federal, state and international agencies that seafood in the North Pacific and Alaska waters poses no radiation related health concerns to those who consume it," said a statement released by state health and environmental officials.

The FDA review was based on a sampling plan developed by the departments of Environmental Conservation and Health and Social Services, the agencies said. Analyzed were several Alaska fish species harvested by commercial, sport and subsistence fishermen that migrate from the western Pacific Ocean.

"The testing found no detections of the Fukushima-related radioisotopes Iodine-131, Cesium-134, or Cesium-137," the statement said. "There was some detection of background or naturally-occurring radiation. The results indicate no appreciable risk from any tested radionuclide in these fish."

Cook Inletkeeper said Friday it would raise money to test waters in Kachemak Bay at crowdrise.com.

People remain worried that radiation has spread to Alaska from the 2011 nuclear disaster in Japan, said Bob Shavelson, executive director of Cook Inletkeeper.

"We've been getting a lot of calls concerned about issue and there was a lot of misinformation floating around the Internet and no one was testing water to compare it to a baseline condition," he said.

The conservation department has posted information about the tests at its website .

What if you took a swim in a typical spent nuclear fuel pool? Would you need to dive to actually experience a fatal amount of radiation? How long could you stay safely at the surface?

The motivations and intelligence of anyone that wants to defend the accident at Fukishima is totally beyond me. Only those with financial interest or their heads wedged firmly up their arses could even begin to do so.

It would take a level of stupidity or self interest to even think to defend the greatest disaster in the history of man which still poses the greatest threat to life as wel know it.

One more sunami and there will be no hope of covering up the damage this is going to do to the planet forever.

Traces of Fukushima Radiation Detected Off California Coast
http://www.livescience.com/487...hore-california.html
by Becky Oskin, Senior Writer | November 11, 2014

Extremely low levels of radioactive cesium from Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown are present in ocean water offshore Northern California, researchers announced Monday (Nov. 10).

In seawater collected about 100 miles (161 kilometers) offshore of Eureka, the amount of cesium-134 was 2 Becquerels per cubic meter of water (a unit of measure based on the number of radioactive decay events per second per 260 gallons of water). That's about 1,000 times lower than the drinking water limit set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

This level of radioactivity does not represent a health hazard for people who want to fish or swim in the area, said Ken Buesseler, a marine chemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, who helped analyze the seawater. Buesseler is leading a crowdfunded citizen science program to track cesium levels from the meltdown by collecting water samples along the U.S. and Canadian West Coast.

A swimmer who spent 6 hours every day for a year in water with 10 Becquerels per cubic meter of cesium-134 would still receive 1,000 times less radiation than the dose from a single dental X-ray, Buesseler said.
