Low-Level Fukushima Radiation Set To Hit West Coast

Here's just one titled article sharing as is, circulating MSM now, it's a segment of the USA Today article titled ""Test West Coast for Fukushima radiation""

In April it will "likely" reach North of Seattle, then move down the West coast line.


Low levels of radiation will reach ocean waters along the United States’ West Coast next month, scientists said, as fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster drifts across the Pacific Ocean.





Radiation will be at levels low enough to leave humans and the environment unharmed, scientists predict, but there are calls for increased monitoring as federal agencies currently do not sample Pacific Coast seawater for radiation, reports USA Today.

Low level? At the very least should be monitored.

It's also being shared in Alt News:


Over the past three years there has been endless debate over whether the Fukushima radioactive fallout is hitting the US west coast, or if, as the media spin would have it, it is largely isolated, and best to just take their word for it for the simple reason that no federal agency currently samples Pacific Coast seawater for radiation. The answer may finally be in sight, and it is not a pleasant one: USA Today reports that "very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster likely will reach ocean waters along the U.S. West Coast next month, scientists are reporting.

SALEM, Ore. -- Very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster likely will reach ocean waters along the U.S. West Coast next month, scientists are reporting.

Although this entire disaster has been one of the greatest threats I can think of to our ecosystems I am given hope by this 2 year half life mentioned (half the intensity after 2 years). I also see that people in Japan are doing ok (at least that is what reports show - no mass casualties). What would be good to know is how things are coming along with fixing the problem so the dumping stops.

Very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster…

There is no safe level of radioactive contamination. Thats why its called a "disaster". If its "not harmful" then why call it anything?

"Well you see sir, if we say its non existent, people will know thats a lie and if we say its harmful then people will wonder to whom so we have to admit its here but not at all dangerous."

"Sounds good-- print it."

And if they wait to start actively monitoring radiation levels until it hits, then they can call that the "normal" background radiation level for the west coast ;-) Then everybody's happy happy!
