The entire Pacific Coast of the United States, Canada and Mexico has been contaminated with radioactive particles from Fukushima.
And finally, it is being officially acknowledged. This is really happening ...
It is a stark reminder that the effects from Fukushima radiation continually spilling into the ocean have not been abated. The site continues to leak highly toxic radioactive material to this day. Nothing has stopped.

Here are some facts which may help put all this into perspective:
- The corium leaking into the ocean contains many radionuclides, including plutonium.
- Plutonium is nasty stuff. You can read about it here - https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/tp143.pdf
- According to nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson, the reactor cores at Fukushima may have contained up to 40 TONS of plutonium.
- According to public health expert Helen Caldicott, MD, one POUND of plutonium is enough to kill every person on earth, if it were to be evenly distributed.
Obviously, this accident has the potential to become an extinction level event. Governments seem to be ignoring it, hoping that dilution of the radionuclides in the ocean will minimize its impact.
But as we know, living things tend to concentrate poisons in the food chain. Many humans depend on fish and other sea creatures for food. And all those organisms will concentrate every toxin which leaks into the ocean from Fukushima.
Bottom line? If global warming doesn't kill us, Fukushima will.
