8.4 Bq/m3 of radioactive cesium was measured on a beach between San Diego and Los Angeles and according to Woods Hole scientist Ken Buesseler, “As the plume begins to arrive along the West Coast [it] will actually increase in concentration… no public agency in the US is monitoring the activities in the Pacific… Without careful, extensive, consistent monitoring, we’ll have no way of knowing how much radiation from Fukushima is reaching our shores, and how it could affect life in the ocean."
With levels of 8.4 back on April 4th, no public agency monitoring this and warnings that radiation concentration will continue to increase, we have to wonder how high the level is now and what this is doing to the health of Americans who live in that area and wildlife whose habitats are being completely destroyed.
The ENENews story from August 24th tells us 'everyone's freaking out!' as whale deaths are at 1,500% of the normal death rate of whale off the West Coast and the government declares an 'unusual mortality event' in which one expert warns gravely: "It's all going to cascade up to us." As many of us know, 'we did not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it...whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves."
On August 20th, we heard what scientists are thinking about 3 rare oarfish found dead in recent weeks off of the coast of Los Angeles: 'Unbelievable!' says one while another says "Of course I'm very concerned...for some reason they're dying....it's very strange." Flesh is falling off of these sea creatures while they're still alive...they're also being found missing body parts..." What one fisherman called a 'once in a lifetime thing' has been happening with increasing frequency since Fukushima as documented in great detail here.
Why are these events now happening off of the coast of Southern California and up and down the West Coast? Here is what experts, local and mainstream media outlets have to say.:
NOAA, Aug 20, 2015 (emphasis added): 2015 large whale stranding locations in the Western Gulf of Alaska… These mortalities are unusual because there is a marked increase in the magnitude or a marked change in the nature of morbidity, mortality or strandings when compared with prior records… Additionally, large whale strandings have increased during the months of July and August in the waters off of British Columbia, Canada… Large whale strandings have continued to the present… Additionally, a common murre die-off was reported… This is the first large whale UME in Alaska.
Guardian: Experts puzzled as 30 whales stranded; Scientists ‘very concerned’… NOAA concedes ‘bottom line is we don’t know what’s causing deaths’… [There's] an official investigation into the mystery of what could be killing so many marine mammals.
Alaska Dispatch: The whale deaths may be tied to a larger marine pattern, officials said… managers are coping with several abnormalities in the Pacific… Thousands of starving sea lion pups [and] large numbers of seabirds have died… “each of these individual species that are examined are really important to us as we put the whole ecosystem picture together,” [NOAA's] Rowles said.
KING 5: “If you see one on the beach, you know there have to be more. They’re just dying off shore,” said [NOAA's] Vera Trainer… “if whales and other marine mammals are getting a huge slug of toxin in their food… they’re going to have problems,” Trainer said… “It’s all going to Cascade up to us,” Trainer said… In addition to whales, Alaska’s seen dead walruses and a lot of dead or disoriented birds… “We think this is giving us a window into the future, and the concern is not just this year, but what’s going to happen in future years,” said Trainer.
Wired: Dozens of dead whales have been washing ashore in Alaska, and nobody knows why… The ordeal has everyone freaked out. NOAA has declared the string of strandings an “unusual mortality event.”… “horrific environmental mystery” seems like a much more appropriate label…
Washington Post: One cause that they’ve basically ruled out is radiation exposure. All it takes is a quick Google to know that many instinctively blame the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster for animal deaths. In acknowledgement of that, NOAA has added a note to its FAQ confirming that the tissue they sampled showed no signs of such contamination…
The Post says NOAA has confirmed ‘no signs’ of contamination, however NOAA’s actual statement is full of caveats: “Is there any link to these large whale deaths to the Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown? It is highly unlikely. From the one fin whale… Preliminary results do not suggest any unusual exposure to human-generated radionuclides, specifically cesium, that would be considered harmful to wildlife. Further testing is underway.”
In the videos below we learn about the record Fukushima radiation that was found on California beaches as well as taking a look at Fukushima and depopulation in the age of fission from Sgt. Report. Was the entire Fukushima disaster caused by HAARP as argued in the 3rd and 4th videos below by Anonymous Truthseeker?
