Are you sure it wasn't 99% covered?
"OMG, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIEEEE!!!"
Yup!!! Got dat right! But, i seriously doubt, the cause of death will be Fuku related!

ignorance denied:

Potential Answer Included

stronger winds > increased nutrients > increased algae blooms (overgrowth) > increased food supply for salps (overgrowth) > increased organic carbon for mud eaters

complex systems we're dealing with here. difficult to figure out root causation in such instances.

Basically to sum it up, it says "no one else has said that Fukushima is the cause of all this, but we are saying it anyways." Not to say that Fukushima isn't the cause, it's just kind of interesting that the article is jumping to conclusions ahead of the scientists investigating this phenomenon.


If it isn't Fukishima that's causing it, then what else could it be I wonder?

My money would be on Fukishima, but the Governments of the world cannot admit this, otherwise it would be exposing the cover up that has been going on from the outset.


I don't know. I'm not one of the scientists tasked with investigating this event. Of course neither are the people at underground health. So I dunno, maybe we should cede to the experts here and let them determine what it is? The article, could be 100% correct, but I don't ask a school teacher how to build a modern building, I ask an engineer. Likewise, you shouldn't ask a journalist what caused a massive die off of marine life. You ask a marine biologist. If they are withholding the answer right now, I'd reason that the results are still inconclusive.

read the original press releases, they are about investigating the abundance of extra animal life they have recorded at the site during studying the food chain at certain depths. nothing about any sort of toxic substances or radiological effects at all.

So somebody counted every square inch of the Pacific Ocean floor? What a daunting task!

Worse even than cleaning out my son's bedroom closet which is an archaeological dig at the best of times. LOL.

A tiny amount. Probably to replace stores that are expiring.

If you're all for the end of humanity I have a good idea where you can start. My babies are part of that humanity you're all for ending.

This isn't exactly a world where secrets can be kept. Scientists are not under government control. Private sector researchers would out them in a heartbeat.

You know, I just finished watching an episode of "the Doctors" where they had just talked about whether there needs to be concern of radiation in fish., The consensus was No. Hilarious. I knew that's what they were going to say. Said Mercury is more a of worry. lol

Then I see your thread and as per usual...

Though the researchers involved with the work have been reluctant to pin Fukushima as a potential cause — National Geographic, which covered the study recently, did not even mention Fukushima


I just had a conversation the other day about the lack of news regarding Fukushima. It's exactly how I know all the bad stuff we hear is true. It's getting scarier by the day now.

I wonder if the Japanese government that is in bed with Tepco truly understands how pissed off people will be when they finally figure this out.


Not just the Japanese government. All governments for not telling the truth and worst of all, not speaking about it. There is a cover-up going on. Nat Geo et al. It drives me nuts the world isn't on top of this.

Try looking up Japans State secret act. I will also try to find the several threads about it here. And the US is going along with it.

So, yep.

Here is just one thread so far:

Yesterday I briefly read something about serious radiation hitting California in March, can anyone confirm this?
I did find where the government had ordered a huge number of Potassium Iodide pills for whatever reason. I thought it was fake because it was only on spoof websites. However, some research showed it was true right from a .gov website HERE


And the point of delivery is in Maryland. The government acquiring Potassium Iodide is nothing new. Having a stockpile on hand is called common sense in the event of any form of radioactive disaster and the requesting agency is the Dept of Health and Human Services. Biggest point in this not having anything to do with proposed radiation in California though is the fact that that Potassium Iodide is for Maryland on the other side of the country...

From your link:


Delivery is required on or before February 1, 2014. Delivery will be made to: DHHS, SSC, Bldg #5 Receiving Dock, Perry Point,MD 21902

Are you talking about the 'Nuclear power' world or the world in general? Because I think you'll find that many secrets have been withheld as has recently been exposed by Government traitors/whistle blowers (whichever side of the fence you stand on).

But you didn't read the comments.

Whoa there, Mr. Conathan. This post is dated September 12, 2013. SEPTEMBER 2013? Then, the quotes from Ken Buesseler that are NOW applicable are in an article that he linked to on his FAQ,. The article is an August 2013 National Geographic article "Latest Radioactive Leak at Fukushima: How Is it Different?"

Here is what he says about things as they are NOW (not just the 2011 event) :

"Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist as the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts who has studied radiation leakage from the Fukushima plant, said he is concerned about the lack of data on levels of strontium-90 in the waters off Fukushima. He said that the groundwater now leaking into the Pacific—including, possibly, some contamination from leaking tanks—might now have much higher levels of that particular substance. Strontium-90 has potentially greater health risks than cesium isotopes because it becomes concentrated in the bones of fish and humans, he said. AND

Buesseler said he was concerned that the high level of radiation from the leaking tank might just be a harbinger of what is to come if more of the other temporary tanks begin to fail. But he's even more worried by revelations of leaks and other problems at the plant, which lately have been coming with dismaying frequency. "There is still a lot of contamination at Fukushima—in the land, in the buildings, and now from these tanks," Buesseler said. "Every bit of news that we've been getting is that the [radioactivity] numbers are going up."

"I'm becoming less confident that [TEPCO] can contain the problem," he said.

Why didn't you use the current quotes, applicable to the situation in September 2013?


And yet more comments...

Dispel banana comparison >> Nuclear apologists pretend that people are exposed to more radiation from bananas than from Fukushima.
Our bodies have adapted to potassium in bananas over eons – cesium-137 and iodine 131 are brand new, extremely dangerous substances.
The EPA explains:
"The human body is born with potassium-40 [the type of radiation found in bananas] in its tissues and it is the most common radionuclide in human tissues and in food. We evolved in the presence of potassium-40 and our bodies have well-developed repair mechanisms to respond to its effects. The concentration of potassium-40 in the human body is constant and not affected by concentrations in the environment".
and there is also tritium, strontium, uranium and plutonium from Fukushima and many other hazards from nukes...being exposed to an increasingly man-made radioactive environment, all species with DNA are increasingly breaking down...

Match up the 'atomic age' with the increase of all cancers and other chronic diseases:
even the United Nations is holding conferences; match it up with radiation exposure


I thought it was odd they needed the banana analogy and I didn't particularly like it.

So long seafood. With pollution and over fishing we won't be seeing seafood on the menu much longer. Damn I'm going to miss it.


I stopped eating seafood since the Fukushima disaster. Hopefully you didn't eat any radioactive sea creatures before you made your post.

And about this dissipation argument. Yes, it is going to happen. But why are the levels holding steady in the sea around Japan.
So isn't it possible, that with it continuously entering the sea, that it could hold a certain steady level, within a strong current?
