Fukushima

collapse-466

by TLB Contributor: Dane Wigington

We are all immersed in a sea of deception and lies. The global power elite are using every tool they have at their disposal to hide countless converging catastrophes from public view until the last possible moment. From completely fictitious economic and unemployment figures, to Fukushima, to an all out (highly toxic) manipulation of the planet’s climate system and so much more. The mainstream media propaganda machine has been given the responsibility of hiding reality from the public at all cost, every option of deception and illusion the power structure has is being exercised at this point. Why? Because the moment the delusion of the the former reality is broken (and the gravity of what is unfolding becomes clear to populations), our paradigm will completely overturn. As populations are forced to face reality and the point of panic draws near,  those who rule the world will be more dangerous than ever before. There will very likely be some major maneuvering by the power structure very soon as they are increasingly exposed for what they are to an awakening world. Should we be concerned about military operations in the continental US like the upcoming “Jade Helm”? What do you think? So what is so wrong in the world? Is it really getting that bad? Below is only the short list.

“Jade Helm” US military drills to be carried out on US soil

Civil unrest in the US

Pentagon is preparing for civil unrest around the globe

The decline of the American Empire

Global shipping of goods and materials at all time low

Peak global oil production has already passed

A collapse of the dollar is imminent

Criminal global trade agreements are being assembled behind closed doors in preparation for collapse

Global collapse into fascism

The Great Climate unravelling

Arctic ice at record low 

Climate engineering is used to cool the eastern US in order to hide the true state of global climate meltdown

14 of the 15 hottest years on our planet have occurred since 2000

Catastrophic sea level rise 

We are currently on track for a runaway global warming scenario referred to as “Venus Syndrome”

We are already free falling into Earth’s sixth mass extinction

A list of mass animal and fish die-offs around the globe (constantly updated)

Fukushima meltdown

Destroyed ozone layer due to climate engineering

Global oxygen content is declining

Arable land is declining rapidly around the globe

All this is only a sample of what is unfolding around us.
Those that don’t want to believe any of this is real can easily find some source of information to tell them everything is OK. They can find someone to tell them that those who are sending out the warnings are just “alarmists”. Any who choose to go down the road of denial should not get too comfortable, there will be no hiding from the gathering storm. The world desperately needs individuals who are determined to take the road less travelled. It needs those who choose to take the path of deciding to be a part of the cure and who refuse to succumb to the diseases of fear, denial, apathy, and inaction. Which road will you choose? Make your voice heard in the fight for the common good while there is yet time to make a difference, tomorrow will be too late.

Interruption of blood supply leading to death of tissue — Disease has been linked to radiation exposure

  • Google Translate: Ibaraki Prefecture… for a large amount of dolphin which was launched on the shore… the National Science Museum… investigated… researchers rushed from national museums and university laboratory, about 30 people were the anatomy of the 17 animals in the field. [According to Yuko Tajima] who led the investigation… “the lungs of most of the 17… was pure white ischemic state, visceral signs of overall clean and disease and infections were observed”… Lungs white state, that has never seen before.

Fukushima Diary, Apr 12, 2015: According to National Science Museum, most of the inspected 17 dolphins had their lungs in ischaemia state… The chief of the researching team stated “Most of the lungs looked entirely white”… internal organs were generally clean without any symptoms of disease or infection, but most of the lungs were in ischaemia state. She said “I have never seen such a state”.

Wikipedia: Ischemia is a vascular disease involving an interruption in the arterial blood supply to a tissue, organ, or extremity that, if untreated, can lead to tissue death.

Many reports have been published on the links between ischemia and radiation exposure:

  • “It has been shown that the ionizing radiation in small doses under certain conditions can be considered as one of starting mechanisms of… IHD [ischemic heart disease].” -Source
  • “Radiation risks on non-cancer effects has been revealed in the [Chernobyl] liquidators… Recently, the statistically significant dose risk of ischemic heart disease… was published.” -Source

spray-flag-466

by TLB Contributor: Dane Wigington

The interview below is a dialog  addressing the most critical issues we face. The discussion is between myself, former Army Major General Albert Stubblebine, and his wife Dr. Rima Laibow. General Stubblebine is the highest ranking US military official to courageously speak the truth about the 911 false flag event and the US government’s role in this unimaginable crime. Dr. Laibow has long since been a pioneer in the fight to expose countless global issues, especially related to our health. This discussion begins with General Stubblebine’s process of awakening to the true criminal nature of the US government, then continues on to cover operation “Jade Helm” and the global geoengineering assault. Our world and our reality is changing by the day. We are all at a crossroad, at a time of choice. Will we go silently into the night? Or will we struggle against the fading of the light? Getting informed and getting active in the fight for the common good is not just an option, it is an obligation, it is a responsibility. Stand up and make your voice heard, if we do not take action today, we will not have tomorrow.

Fish Fukushima

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

Fukushima radiation, Navy exercises using depleted uranium ammunition, Geo-engineering, state sized garbage islands, continuous toxic dumping, etc… The oceans are dying off in ever increasing catastrophes, including the massive die-off of ocean plankton (produces over 60% of total global oxygen).

This planet is in serious trouble, but even more so humanity, because over many millennia the oceans will possibly heal themselves … BUT when the oceans die … So Does Humanity.

Yet where are the government alarm bells? Where is the massive push for research and solutions? Aren’t we a nation used to doing the impossible such as putting a man on the moon, defeating communism, splitting the atom etc…? But here we are facing an ever increasing, VERY REAL, threat to ALL life on this planet and we are stuck in neutral!

The Dying Oceans

Could this inaction by corrupted global governments be intentional? Could there actually be those among us so evil that they perpetrate and perpetuate this scenario? Do you have a better answer for the almost total inaction to this catastrophic reality?

Here is a Blatant example of government complicity, corruption or sheer ineptitude (I don’t really believe the last one) …

Our governments reaction to ever increasing levels of radiation in the pacific sea life we eat … is to increase, by a large percentage, the allowable (legal) level of radiation in the food we put on our, and our children’s, dinner table (with no announcement or fanfare). Wait, wasn’t there a very valid health reason for setting the original limits? This is pure unadulterated Madness!

Fukushima Update -The largest mass die offs of Sea Life ever recorded” now underway on West Coast

Plankton, sea lions, seals, starfish, anchovies and a massive amount of all large fish or mammals including Porpoise and Wales (which are Sentient Species) … these are but a few of the continuing die-offs we can see with our own eyes, with no information required from our criminally inactive governments.

Inaction is the recipe for the utter collapse of the biosphere and thus humanity, and we are watching this unfold, in an accelerating fashion, right before our very eyes!

Our Oceans Are Dying ~ 90% of Big Fish Are GONE ~ What Are WE Doing?

There is no place to run or hide from this, try as you may. Our only recourse is to wake up to this blight and force our complicit governments into action, or bequeath a dying or dead planet to our children …

THINK ABOUT THAT !!!

Just do any research … PLEASE … and you will find ongoing catastrophic events continuing to unfold, and not in the shadows, but right under our noses.

With all the information that is available to you, as well as what The Liberty Beacon project has already presented to you, if you chose to say, or do nothing … how can you look your doomed children or grandchildren in the eyes and tell them …

“I LOVE YOU” ???

equinox-solstice-eclipse-466

By Soren Dreier & Chautauqua, Guests  WakingTimes

We humans are a pretty resilient bunch. We can absorb a tremendous amount of setback or grief without giving in to the negativity. On a personal level and even within the collective consciousness, we can take a punch. We don’t give up easily, because it just leaves a bad aftertaste in our throat.

We humans also have a pronounced capacity to disregard things which violate our sense of dignity and justice. Whether it is pedophile priests, genocide in Darfur or environmental crisis; humans can block it out to the point of madness. We simply put all such subjects into a mental folder labeled “Things not affecting me which I can do nothing about” and go on about our participation in the rat race.

With the 9-11 false flag event the matrix launched humanity into a whole new level of cognitive dissonance. It was the first shot of the matrix endgame, which launched humanity into the time the Hopi people call Naqoyqatsi, which translates into “Life as War.” The chorus line of wars which followed 9-11 are a thinly veiled campaign of conquest for resources and treasure; home invasion on a global scale.

We’ve passed the point at which we can just brush this all off as the new normal and continue on our own little lives. It no longer fits the category of the folder we filed it away in because it is affecting all of us, and will continue to do so. The trouble is after all this time if we start pulling issues out of that folder of things to be ignored, maintaining any level of sanity gets real sketchy. So we leave them in there. It’s just easier that way.

The matrix provides us with constant stimulation and circuses to distract us from connecting too many dots; because they fear us if we ever were to become united against them. They constantly keep their illusion reality pumped up nowadays because they know if they hit us with overwhelming negativity it will crush our will to resist. The matrix minders know how we avoid the unpleasant realities, and they’ve been counting on it all along.

This conditioning began generations ago and the programming is updated on the fly to construct the consensus reality of the matrix we accept as daily life. Once we are plugged into the system and dependent upon the grid it becomes very difficult to free ourselves; so we just go with the flow. It’s easier that way.

All the while, that mental folder gets fatter and fuller, it’s overflowing, cluttering up the subconscious landscape. On every level our inherent goodness is attacked by the matrix as they trot out one massive deception after another; boiling us down to the lowest common denominator in the process. They are overloading our capacity to process and integrate information with a tsunami of root chakra stimulations designed to keep us focused upon our vices rather than our virtues.

What a crock of shit.

The industrial giants have polluted this planet on an industrial scale for well over a hundred years and yet we must use approved light bulbs and monitor our carbon footprint because we are a threat to the ecosystem and a blight upon the environment. What utter dystopian doublespeak. They’ve been spraying the skies above earth with chemtrails since 1995 and yet that cigarette butt you tossed on the sidewalk is some kind of environmental disaster? One huge crock of shit.

As a manufactured debate over global warming makes millions for those causing it, everyone everywhere is totally ignoring the long term consequences of Fukushima, as if it never happened! The mental folder of all unpleasant things to be ignored has expanded to an entire file cabinet with Fukushima related issues, and there are many.

The first and most obvious issue is that nobody anywhere knows what to do about it. The geography of Fukushima rules out encasing the site in cement as the Russians did at Chernobyl, so it has just continued to spew nuclear radiation into the ecosystem these last four years. The governments of the world are unable to help, they are clueless how to stop this thing. Angela Jolie likes to travel and collect orphans to bring public attention to important issues; yet we don’t see her flying to Japan. Right now Leonardo Dicaprio is busy financing a search of the worlds oceans for the worlds loneliest whale…WTF buddy, what the hell are you smoking? He has the inside connections, he knows the score…one massive deception.

It’s all rather reminiscent of something Kurt Vonnegut said in Breakfast of Champions, “Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.

Perhaps the late Stuart Wilde said it best:

Earth, what a beautiful planet, shame about the people.”

We’re well beyond the point where some righteous spiritual anger is called for. The planet wide cone of silence over all things Fukushima pretty much meets the criteria for mass insanity, wouldn’t you say? Remember not so long ago people flooded the streets by the thousands in protest of an unjust and illegal war in Vietnam; but nowadays they only turn out like that for a new iphone.

What will it take for humanity to snap out of it and acknowledge Fukushima’s impact? Let’s see here, first put some boobs on it and then figure out a way to tax it, how’s that? If world governments could figure out how to turn a profit from Fukushima they’d be fighting each other over who got the contract.

How do we handle all of this on a spiritual level? This is a major planetary disaster; and new age jingoistic rhetoric simply won’t suffice any longer. We’ve never needed transparency and someone to take action more than now, but instead everyone’s making plans for the coming Olympics in Tokyo. Are you fucking joking? Seriously, holding the Olympics in Japan is the absolute height of absurdity. It is like saying we should hold a health care seminar in the Ebola ward.

Is this moratorium on discussing Fukushima’s future legacy some kind of collective emotional survival mechanism hidden somewhere in our DNA? Is it simply too much, too scary and overwhelming for us to cope with? Whatever the reason one thing is crystal clear; we don’t want to hear about it and don’t wish to discuss it.

Whatever else it is, it just isn’t healthy, and that should worry us as well but it doesn’t.

We love end of the world movies like Mad Max because if we didn’t Hollywood would quit making so many of them. Let that scenario manifest in real everyday life where your kids go to school and it’s a whole different thing. Just try bringing up Fukushima in any gathering of people, then observe the looks on the faces of those within earshot. It’s a taboo subject by group consensus. It is almost as if the true and certain end of life as we’ve come to know it is just beyond human ability to deal with.

Here’s the thing. Even if we don’t think, or speak about the aftermath of Fukushima and what the future holds for our loved ones; we still know. That knowledge is within us and cannot be deleted, it’s permanent. The very fact that we refuse to acknowledge this even to ourselves causes much harmonic discord within the spirit, it is a dichotomy that cannot persist; at some point something has to give. Care to guess what that will be? How about a wager!

The Drake Equation is a famous formula for extrapolating the probable number of planets bearing intelligent life in our galaxy. The part of the equation that speaks to our current reality is the one where the number of probable planets is further reduced by those civilizations who do not survive their technological childhood. That is us, right now; failing that crucial test. The only thing gained by our ignoring the problem is assured extinction.

There are several signs and portents currently which increasingly indicate the matrix will likely instigate the long awaited crowd pleaser known as WW3, perhaps as soon as six months. One such portent is certainly the cover of the Jan. 2015 issue of the Economist magazine. In a dystopian parody of a famous Beatles album cover, the clearly matrix inspired artwork contains images of missiles and a mushroom cloud, and two distinct dates: 11.3 and 11.5 each printed on an arrow! Is that in your face enough?

I couldn’t help wondering if that was what God put me on earth for: to find out how much a man could take without breaking.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut

So is all of this dystopian nightmare the archon endgame? Did they see us coming? Did they succeed – yes they did. They have robbed us of our dignity and robbed Gaia of her pristine oceans. They have killed, pillaged and destroyed with cold callousness; they got what they wanted and are ready to move on soon. Were we nothing more than a minor mosquito caught in the net of planets they control? Did the matrix take itself out with Fukushima? We know they have plans for massive depopulation, yet some doubt remains whether that earthquake four years ago had some help or not from the strumming of the H.A.A.R.P. array? Or, is what we are seeing some kind of scorched earth campaign, a going away present from the archons?

Were we called here to bear witness to Gaia’s murder?

There are no secret technologies for rendering radiation harmless.

There is nobody coming from anywhere to bail us out.

No get out of extinction free card.

What can we do?

First of all we need to just step outside of ourselves and get past it all. We can adjust our expectations; from the physical mundane to the spiritual; and focus upon the needs of our basic soul. No thought which begins with the words “what if” or “if only” is worth finishing. Nothing positive can follow those words, so never use them in that order.

We can become emotional healers in the dystopian wasteland. We can also clean and update our emotional software, because we can’t let this take us down.

We can avoid pessimism, in fact we must avoid it because every negative or pessimistic thought strengthens the neural pathway established for it. If we never complete a negative thought, those neural pathways degrade. We can focus on the positive, and build up those neural pathways instead.

We can forsake the materialistic in favor of the spiritual connection between all humans. We all laugh and cry the same way, we all love our children and we all bleed red. The same things make all of us sad, and we all rejoice at the same things. We can focus on this, we can do that for starters!

We can help one another keep spirits up, to help each other battle depression and find some point of grace. We can help heal each other emotionally. Humans have the ability to rise above many difficult things individually, yet collectively we lack experience in actually using that ability.

We could explore who we really are thru the use of DMT, Iboga, or Ayahuasca; because the “laws” against them are absurd. How can you make a plant illegal? The whole entire point of making these natural plants illegal is to prevent people from connecting with their soul on the most intimate of levels, to disempower us. The only reason.

We need to begin doing these things now, because there will be life after Fukushima. There are places on the planet which will afford some natural protection from the accumulation of radiation. Here and there small groups of humans will survive. It has always been that way before and shall be again. Hide and watch.

We may or may not become enlightened but soon enough we’ll become fluorescent.

Instead of the Aquarian evolution we were expecting, we get this dystopian evolution of a small and insignificant species on a backwater little world. Bait and switch. We’re all now the passengers in Hitchcock’s Lifeboat and if you don’t understand the reference watching the movie may give valuable insight of the kind of future ahead of us.  If we cannot find our way to honor people over possessions, pretty soon we’ll just be so much flotsam & jetsam floating upon a dead ocean on a dead planet.

Fukushima-Radiation-Earthquake-Tsunami-466

by: Ethan A. Huff

Cleanup crews trying to mitigate Japan’s never-ending radiation crisis at Fukushima ran into more problems recently after sensors monitoring a drainage gutter detected a huge spike in radiation levels from wastewater pouring into the Pacific Ocean.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company says radiation levels were up to 70 times, or 7,000 percent, higher than normal, prompting an immediate shutdown of the drainage instrument. The first readings came around 10 a.m. local time on February 22, setting off alarms not once but twice as radiation levels spiked to extremely high levels.

“The levels of beta ray-emitting substances, such as strontium-90, measured 5,050 to 7,230 becquerels per liter of water between 10:20 a.m. and 10:50 a.m.,” reported The Japan Times. “TEPCO requires radioactivity levels of groundwater at the plant discharged into the sea to remain below 5 becquerels.”

TEPCO shut off leaky gutter, but radiation continued to spike throughout day

The gutter was quickly decommissioned to prevent further radiation emissions, but the leaks reportedly continued throughout the day, with radiation levels hovering between 10 and 20 times higher than normal. TEPCO says it doesn’t know what caused the sudden radiation spikes.

“With emergency surveys of the plant and monitoring of other sensors, we have no reason to believe tanks storing radioactive waste water have leaked,” stated a plant official to the media. “We have shut the gutter [from pouring water to the bay]. We are currently monitoring the sensors at the gutter and seeing the trend.”

Multiple major leaks reported as Fukushima generates 400 tons of new radioactive waste daily

Just four days prior to the leak, the International Atomic Energy Agency congratulated TEPCO for its continued cleanup efforts at the Fukushima site. This is despite numerous other radiation leaks, some of them quite major, that have occurred in recent months at the shuttered facility.

Back in October 2013, for instance, a failed transfer of radioactive wastewater from one storage tank to another resulted in more than four tons of highly contaminated sludge being dumped into the ground. Not long before this, 300 tons of radioactive waste reportedly leaked from another nearby storage tank.

As we reported earlier in the month, a worker actually died after falling into a radioactive storage tank during a routine inspection. The 33-foot container that swallowed the man is one of many at the site that holds a portion of the 400 tons of highly radioactive water generated daily at Fukushima.

Fukushima workers build one new storage tank daily, but this can’t go on forever

The Japan News reports that large storage tanks capable of holding up to 2,900 tons of contaminated water are constantly being built at the site, up to one new tank daily, in fact. At some point, though, other mitigatory measures will have to be implemented, as there’s only so much space available to build more tanks.

According to The Ecologist, the Reactor 3 fuel storage pond also still contains upwards of 89 metric tons of plutonium-based, mixed-oxide fuel that, should the pond leak or dry up, could result in another major reactor meltdown. Reactor 3, as you may recall, experienced a full meltdown back in 2011 that resulted in the reactor core falling through the floor to the bottom of the containment vessel.

The chart at the following link, which was put together just days after the tsunami and earthquake hit Fukushima, provides a visual breakdown of radiation exposures from various sources. It can be used to quantify the threat associated with each respective leak:

radiation_fukushima_world-460

by Christina Sarich

As reports from individuals like Chieko Shiina, a supporter of the Fukushima Collaborateive Clinic talk about exploding rates of thyroid cancer in children, as well as an epidemic of leukemia, heart attacks, and other health problems, the Abe-led government and US continue to sweep the fall out of the Fukushima disaster under the rug.

Cancer rates have exploded at an increase of almost 6000% in areas near the reactor meltdown. Aside from people-on-the-street interviews that a rare media outlet like “Hodo station” will report on, mainstream media stays completely silent. One Japanese resident, Carol Hisasue, laments that as the incident has disappeared from the media, it has also disappeared from people’s consciousness.

So why does Fukushima continue to be a see no evil, hear no evil event? You can watch an over hour-long report that goes into detail, but to sum it up, people can’t even turn on their gas-stoves near Fukushima because “it would be like burning radioactive fuel in their kitchens.” The contamination levels are too ridiculous to even comprehend.

No matter if the accident was caused by a purposeful nuclear attack, an act of weather warfare (as some conspiracy analysts have suggested), or by the sheer greed of the nuclear industry who built it, it is essentially a massive nuclear weapon on fault lines. The Japanese government and TEPCO are guilty of crimes against humanity, and their neglect is compounded by a complete disregard, not only for human life, but for all life upon this planet.

The US is also responsible. After the spotlight was put on failing plants across the United States that continue to leak radiation into our air, water, and soil every day, the multi-billion dollar, US taxpayer-subsidized contracts of the nuclear industry came into question. And you can be sure any real inquiry into the infrastructure of our nuclear plants was hushed up as quickly as concerns were raised.

The World Health Organization once warned that cancer rates could soar 50% in less than 20 years – but we’ve already surpassed that estimate, which once seemed catastrophic, exponentially.

So tell me – why are we in such a hurry to forget Fukushima, and why are plans being drawn up to build more nuclear reactors in the US using taxpayer monies?

In Time for Massive New Dumping of Daiichi Radiation

By: Christina Sarich

A Japanese government official has reported, “I was overwhelmed by the amount of contaminated water coming from the reactors, we must dump it in the ocean.” This isn’t such great news for the US since President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently gave their approval for “dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs.”

The Nuclear Industry calls this their “new normal,” according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

The EPA has issued radiation guides called Protective Action Guides or PAGs which allows more radiation than any American has ever been exposed to. Within the guides, are instructions for evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, food restrictions and other actions following a wide range of “radiological emergencies.”

Wouldn’t the massive break down of reactor number one at Fukushima be considered a ‘radiological emergency?”

Shunichi Tanaka, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, made the comment Dec. 12 about dumping radioactive waste into the ocean.

The US governments PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period. Many experts are expecting elevated cancer rates due to these “allowable” levels of radiation exposure.

Read: Anonymous US Gov’t Expert Admits Astronomical Radiation Levels from Fukushima

The PAGs are the work of Gina McCarthy, the assistant administrator for air and radiation whose nomination to serve as EPA Administrator was only approved by the Senate a few months ago.

It is suggested that these PAGs have been in the works for over two years and are just recently available for public view.

PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said:

“This is a public health policy only Dr. Strangelove could embrace. If this typifies the environmental leadership we can expect from Ms. McCarthy, then [the] EPA is in for a long, dirty slog.”

 “No compelling justification is offered for increasing the cancer deaths of Americans innocently exposed to corporate miscalculations several hundred-fold.”

Radiation-Nuclear-Power-World-Globe-Danger466

Monday, December 15, 2014 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

Beta radiation levels are off the charts at monitoring sites all across North America, according to new reports. But experts are blaming these radiation spikes on practically everything except for Fukushima.

Data gathered from tracking units in California, Arizona, Illinois and elsewhere reveal radiation levels up to 50,000 percent higher than what was observed at the same time last year, and in some cases compared to levels seen this past summer.

EnviroReporter.com says the impacted sites are scattered throughout the country and aren’t just confined to the West Coast. Readings taken near Los Angeles; Chicago; Montgomery, Alabama; and Madison, Wisconsin, reveal total beta counts per minute (CPM) greatly exceeding the 1,000 CPM threshold considered by the government to be problematic.

In Tucson, Arizona, for instance, a 460 CPM reading was recently taken, which is more than 10 times higher than the reading taken last year on November 27. Similarly, Phoenix, Arizona’s 735 CPM reading measured more than 21 times higher than last year’s reading.

San Diego appears to be one of the hardest-hit areas, with a CPM reading of 650, as of October 1. This figure is 60 times higher than it was last year on the same date, despite the fact that San Diego’s normal background radiation rate typically hovers around 20 CPM.

“U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RadNet radiation monitors have detected renewed surges in atmospheric readings of dangerous beta radiation across the country,” explains EnviroReporter.com about the seemingly inexplicable phenomenon.

“Over a dozen metropolitan test sites have registered four-month highs in EnviroReporter.com’s most recent comprehensive assessment.”

Radiation testing site near Chicago records radiation levels thousands of times higher than maximum safety threshold

Commenting on the situation, one EnviroReporter.com reader offered his own assessment that these readings are “astronomically high.” He was quick to denounce Fukushima as a possible cause, though, adding that this would only be possible if “something there has changed dramatically.”

Either way, the radiation levels being detected are still a major cause for concern. Anything above 100 CPM is considered by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to be a potential hazardous materials situation requiring the deployment of hazmat protocols.

At a testing site in St. Charles, Illinois, located just west of Chicago, a recent peak reading of 7,298 CPM caught the attention of some environmental activists, who chided the media for remaining silent on the issue.

This reading represents a nearly 7,300 percent radiation increase beyond CHP’s safety threshold. This site apparently experienced a series of massive radiation spikes beginning at approximately 1:00 am and lasting for as long as six hours.

California official blames plastic eating utensils for radiation spike, insist it can’t be Fukushima

Back in California, county officials in San Mateo recorded radiation levels at a local beach measuring 100 micro-REM per hour, or 1 microsievert per hour, which is five times the normal amount. According to the Half Moon Bay Review, local environmental health director Dean Peterson was quick to denounce that this level poses any risk to human health.

When asked where this radiation might be coming from, Peterson admitted that he is “befuddled,” but also denied that Fukushima could possibly be a cause. Instead, he says, it may be due to an excess of disposable eating utensils polluting the area.

“I honestly think the end result of this is that it’s just higher levels of background radiation,” stated Peterson to the HMB Review, adding that red-painted disposable eating utensils can also contribute to localized radiation spikes.

TLB Note: The following was published by ENENEWS but the title above is ours (theirs is below this note). If you feel our title to blatant, or we (TLB) the harbinger of fear porn, then obviously you have not done enough research.

What we see here is a massive die-off of marine life and the encroaching death of one of the most important mechanisms to human existence on this planet … the Pacific Ocean! When this ocean can no longer support the vast diversity of life it has always supported … when this ocean dies … it will trigger a domino effect that humanity cannot and will not survive.

This article and its myriad of links and videos is a must see, for your education and your children and their children’s future !!!

Alaska: “Scientists alarmed by new mystery disease” — Pacific Northwest: “Alarming changes” — “Couldn’t believe my eyes” — “Scientists really stumped… It’s kind of an alien thing” — “Gotten much, much worse… a horror show… could wreak havoc on entire ecosystems from Mexico to Alaska” (VIDEO)

Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomber (Washington), July 30, 2014: “I would say the disease hasn’t been abating. It looks to me like it’s raging,” [Rayna Holtz] said last week. […] Other islanders have reported steep declines in the sea star populations […] with an especially bad die-off in June. In May, a group of students […] counted about 800 sea stars […] in mid-June […] 60 to 80 percent of the sea stars were gone […] many of the ones that were left were visibly sick and “at death’s door.” The early summer die-off was also seen at other beaches around Puget Sound […] “The students were surprised, dismayed and somewhat astounded by the fact that these starfish were disintegrating almost before their eyes” […] Holtz observed the same thing across the harbor in Dockton. […] she counted just one juvenile sea star and no adult stars. “I couldn’t believe my eyes […] The areas that had not been touched in February have succumbed now.” […] Karlista Rickerson, an avid scuba diver […] estimates she’s seen about 80 percent of the sea stars disappear [underwater]. Some from the scuba community have been asked to count sea stars as deep as 120 feet […] “There aren’t any to count anymore,” she said last week.

Homer Tribune, Aug. 5, 2014: Scientists alarmed by new mystery disease […] A scientist visiting Alaska, Karyn Traphagen, said […] “I came in May and September 2013 […] I saw signs of it then, but it was much more pronounced when I returned last month […] I then went back to my 2013 photos and found some evidence of the disease as early as May 2013.” […] On its website, [UC Santa Cruz says] It’s not the Fukushima radiation: “[…] that wouldn’t have arrived here yet. Also, just the distribution of the disease and apparent lack of the disease in other areas, really doesn’t lend itself to (a Fukushima link).” […] Researchers are leaning toward the theory that “it may be a pathogen of some sort that is distributed through ocean currents”

Whidbey News-Times (Washington), Jul 31, 2014: Volunteer for the Island County Beach Watchers organization since 1993, [Charlie] Seablom has started to see alarming changes in his favorite sea creature. […] “Scientists are really stumped […] limbs have been known to fall off and crawl away on their own,” [Beach Watchers’ Barbara Bennett] said. “It’s kind of an alien thing.”

Whidbey News-Times, Jul 27, 2014: Bennett opined [it] could be happening because other things are off balance, such as […] chemistry of the ocean. It may also be the result of pollution […]

High Country News, July 4, 2014: I first wrote about Pacific sea stars falling victim to a mysterious disease last fall […] It’s gotten much, much worse. […]  what’s behind this intertidal horror show […] no one really knows. […] an epidemic that could wreak havoc on entire ecosystems from Mexico to Alaska, and we can’t pin down the cause. […] The lack of concrete information also provides fertile ground for conspiracy theorists, particularly those who like to blame all mysterious ocean problems on Fukushima radiation-an idea roundly dismissed by scientists.

‘Conspiracy theories’ roundly dismissed by scientists?

  • “‘What about Fukushima…?’ We haven’t ruled that out” -Pete Raimondi, UC Santa Cruz
  • “Researchers say nuclear pollution… could be partially to blame for a disease wiping out starfish… Raimondi also says scientists can’t rule out nuclear pollution”-1130 AM
  • “We’ve had a lot of questions about whether it is related to radiation from Fukushima, we can’t completely exclude that possibility” -Ian Hewson, Cornell University
  • “There is speculation that the die-off could be due to… Fukushima. [Biologist Paula Romagosa] said that doesn’t sound likely because the first place it was seen was in a remote area of Indian Arm* [near Vancouver] and not the west coast” -Times Colonist

*The die-off was observed in Alaska during May of 2013 — 3 months before Indian Arm. Fukushima-contaminated water arrived in Alaska in 2012 and Vancouver in June 2013.
