Radiation from Japan's 2011 nuclear disaster has spread off North American shores and contamination is increasing at previously identified sites, although levels are still too low to threaten human or ocean life, scientists said on Thursday.
Tests of hundreds of samples of Pacific Ocean water confirmed that Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant continues to leak radioactive isotopes more than four years after its meltdown, said Ken Buesseler, marine radiochemist with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Trace amounts of cesium-134 have been detected within several hundred miles (km) of the Oregon, Washington and California coasts in recent months, as well as offshore from Canada's Vancouver Island.
Another isotope, cesium-137, a radioactive legacy of nuclear weapons tests conducted from the 1950s through the 1970s, was found at low levels in nearly every seawater sample tested by Woods Hole, a nonprofit research institution.

Don't accept the excuse that the levels are "too low" to threaten us. The nuclear cores appear to have sunk into the ground, they may still be critical, and radioactive contamination from them will continue to leak into the Pacific Ocean for decades (or longer).

Obama ad-Dajjal is all hopped up on "climate change" like a junkie who needs another fix.
But there are at least three other real dangers he is doing little or nothing to protect us from:
*The ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima
*The huge influx of illegal drugs flooding our cities
*The huge numbers of migrants and immigrants invading our shores
Make no mistake, one or all of these dangers will someday destroy what little is left of our nation.
