Years after Alternative Media reported on the effects being seen along the West Coast of America, from the 2011 Earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan which caused multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Nuclear Power facility, the MSM has deigned to report that Cesium-134, the so-called 'fingerprint of Fukushima,' has been detected in seawater samples in Oregon.
Of course the mainstream media is still actively promoting the story line that the levels found are "extremely low," and claim they "don’t pose a danger to humans or the environment." That was quoted from a CBS News article dated December 9, 2016.
FLASHBACK - GEIGER COUNTERS IN CALIFORNIA REGISTERED HIGH RADIATION LEVELS
Flashback 2014, via the Statesman Journal:
Low-level radiation from Japan's Fukushima nuclear accident has been detected in multiple samples of ocean water off the Pacific Coast of the U.S. and Canada, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is reporting.
The sample nearest to shore was taken about 100 miles off the coast of Eureka, in Northern California.
In that 2014 report it also stated "No state or federal agency is testing Pacific waters for radiation from the crippled plant," despite hundreds of tons of radioactive waste being poured into the Pacific Ocean.
In 2014, Americans worried they weren't being informed of the truth by the MSM, took Geiger counters to the coast and recorded their readings, as did Infowars to confirm these findings.
Thyroid cancer in local children and adolescents following the Fukushima nuclear disaster was probably caused by radiation released in the accident, four researchers said Tuesday in a report.
Annual thyroid cancer incidence rates in Fukushima Prefecture from March 2011 through late last year were 20 to 50 times the national level, said a team led by Toshihide Tsuda, professor of environmental epidemiology at Okayama University. The findings were published in the electronic edition of the journal of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology.
The official line, the one that the Washington propaganda machine also known as the mainstream media continue to push at the public, comes from a government report in January 2015, which states that the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continues to see public interest in low concentrations of radioactive material detected off the U.S. West Coast, so they offer their bottom line, despite previous reports stating clearly that there is no state or federal agency testing the Pacific waters for Fukushima radiation, is quoted below, via this NRC.gov document:
The available evidence continues to lead the NRC and other Federal, State and local governments to conclude the low levels of radiation leaking into the ocean from Fukushima Daiichi fall well short of posing any U.S. health or environmental risk.
In that report they admit the testing that has been done by U.S. and Canadian agencies and private groups, and that "the analysis is done outside the NRC."
In other words, nothing to see here move along, it isn't worth our time to independently investigate the effects the Fukushima nuclear disaster has on America or Americans.
Fukushima is perhaps one of the worst global disasters in history and while the MSM continues to provide the "fake news" that there is nothing to worry about, it is of concern to those of us that have been keeping track of animal die-offs, radiation levels and the massive increase of cancer on the West Coast.
Will the mainstream media ever be held accountable for not informing the public?
The video below was taken mid-flight over the Pacific in 2015, where a passenger detailed the reading on a geiger counter as they are flying over the Pacific on their way to Las Vegas, Nevada, and the readings fluctuate, but top 1,000.... normal background radiation is supposed to be around 30.
