" According to my research there are now 3 gigabecquerels [3 billion becquerels] of cesium-137 flowing into
No one knows where 300 tons of melted nuclear fuel rods went, but is it responsible for contaminating the Pacific and a lot more? You have to find them before you can do anything about them. And even then, what do you do with them?
The barriers Tepco set up to contain them do not work. Decontamination of the cities around Fukushima has not worked either.
If they find the rods, they have no clue how to get them out and they will continue to radiate Japan and the Pacific ocean for a very long time.
Of course some believe they do know where the rods are: In the ocean, of course.
These headlines point in that direction:
Biologist: Pacific herring in Canada bleeding from eyeballs, faces, fins, tails — I’ve never seen fish looking this bad" here ,here and here.
From Alaska and Russia: Sockeye salmon at dire historic low on Canada’s Pacific coast — “We think something happened in the ocean” — “The (tribal) elders have never seen anything like this at all”
Arnie Gundersen: "So eventually though we are going to see top of the food chain animals like tuna and salmon and things like that that have this process bio accumulates. The bigger fish gradually get higher and higher concentrations. And I am concerned that the FDA is not monitoring fish entering the United States because sooner or later a tuna is going to set off a radiation alarm at some part and people are going to think it’s a dirty bomb or something like that. So that’s not here yet because the tuna haven’t migrated across the Pacific. But I am thinking by 2013 we might see contamination of the water and of the top of the food chain fishes on the West Coast."
And, he was right on the money. We are seeing it now.
