Coast Reporter, Sunshine Coast, BC, Nov. 8, 2013: [...] The October issue of Pacific Fishing magazine takes on the “unscrupulous activists” and “Web bloggeristas,” quoting headlines that are “just plain wrong,” including this killer-diller: “At the very least, your days of eating Pacific Ocean fish are over.” [...] The October Pacific Fishing article fights back with the headline: “They say radiation will poison your catch! Thing is, they’re lying.” [...] A test of 27 albacore found “detectable radiation” in 60 to 70 per cent [...] The article provides a healthy dose of sanity to the debate, but in its eagerness to refute the doomsters, it unfortunately minimizes the scope of the catastrophe. In July, the government of Japan admitted that the crippled nuclear complex had been leaking radioactive water daily into the Pacific Ocean since the disaster began [...] the figure that was put out there was 300 tonnes per day. [...] The Pacific Fishing article acknowledges there were early discharges into the sea, but quantifies the scale of the contamination by focusing on the impact of the single 300-tonne leak announced in August. As a result, the article leaves the reader still wondering. [...] the people who are best positioned to know — the senior governments and their teams of scientists — are telling us nothing. Everything is fine, they say. And that’s it. It’s not enough. The fishing industry needs some damage control here. The people need some answers, including real data and real analysis. This patronizing silence is downright irresponsible.

The Real News, Nov. 8, 2013 — Arjun Makhijani, President of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, Ph.D. in engineering (specialization: nuclear fusion) from the University of California at Berkeley: [...] if there are people who are panicking and talking about evacuations and so on on the West Coast, I think that that is out of proportion. But at the same time, there is a real cause for concern, because, as we know, there are hundred of tons of radioactive water that are flowing into the ocean every day [...] Some fish do cross the ocean that initially would get their food near the Fukushima site or off the east coast of Japan. And radioactivity of Fukushima origin has been detected at elevated levels. [...] it’s important to remember that every little bit of radiation creates an increment of cancer risk. [...] if there are small doses in large populations, then you could get significant numbers of cancers, even if you the individual risk is low. I think the U.S. Food and Drug Administration should be monitoring the food, fish especially, much more intensively and making those results public, both because there is some physical concern, and there is some stress among the population from not knowing. [...] I would be careful, especially if I were a pregnant women, about the provenance of my fish. [...]

      ~~~~~~

      Hello TEPCO, your not my friend,

      I've come to kick you're ass again,


      Because your Isotopes are softly creeping,
      
Left its Actinides while I was sleeping,
      
And the Nuclides that was planted in my brain

      
Still remains

      Within the sound of radiation's silence.

      In restless dreams I walked alone

      Narrow streets of cobblestone,

      'Neath the halo of a BWR lit street lamp,


      I turned my collar to the contaminated cold and damp,

      When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of,
 Gamma ray light


      That split the night

      And created the sound of Atomic silence.

      And in the Nuclear flash of light I saw

      Ten thousand people dying, maybe more.

      
People talking without the NRC hearing,

      NRC hearing without listening,


      People writing sing say's that voices will share,

      And only enenews.com dared,


      Disturb the sound of TEPCO's silence.

But our words like silent Cesium raindrops fell,

        As Corium's re-criticality echoed
In the Aquifer's wells of silence.

        And the people bowed and prayed

        To the Nuclear Devil they made.

        
And enenews'ers flashed out its warning,

        In the words that bad shit was forming.

        
And the signs said,
        The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls


        And tenement halls.

        And screamed beyond the sounds of silence.

    For anyone who actually reads the articles know that the people that are stating it is like worrying about getting sunburned from a star. Let me start by just stating these people who are being paid through grants by the US gov. are lying and lets see them eat a tomato from the fall out let see them eat the fish they say is ok to eat. 70% of fish being caught, yes sure a good sheeple will believe them and not see the fact that any radiation you eat will kill you eventually.

    I am sick to my stomach and really have to say if you believe the shiot they are spewing you deserve to get ill and suffer. I wonder maybe the children that have leukemia and thyroid cancers forgot to smile and that is why they have only few days or months left to live.

    I know that there are more radioactive fallout from Fukushima than just the cesium getting in the fish. I would like to see an analysis of ALL of them in some fish samples.

    On a wishful thinking note :

    I found on eCat news this article about some Japanese science break through. They managed to transmute cesium into Pr.

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2013/10/toyota-transumtation-paper-published/

    What is Pr? I had to look on Wikipedia to guess the answer Praseodymium… the atomic structure looks similar.

    So, these Japanese scientists are so smart. I don't know how they did it or what Pr is. But they need to build whatever machinery around the Nuke plants spewing Cs on everything fishy and transmute it already. Then they only have to transmuter all the other crap the NPPs are pissing out.

    Those scientists are so smart, but really kind of dumb. They should be transmuting Cs into replacement fish.

    07.10.2013 – Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish.

    Extracts:

    The Japanese Fisheries Agency has been testing the radiation in fish caught in its waters since March 2011. On average, fish in the 33,000 tests had 18 becquerels per kilo of radioactive cesium.

    Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.

    Comment:

    Recent research suggests 5 Bq/Kg should be the maximum for children, and preferably none. If they detect Cesium there are probably other radioactive Isotopes contaminants present, but not reported.

      Something not tested for to date but mentioned by Straight.com is the risk from strontium 90 and plutonium in Pacific fish.

      The fish most at risk for contamination were rarely if ever tested. This tactic gives a false sense of security and leaves the true risk factor unknown.

      • They're only talking about cesium because it's one of the "Big Three" fission products of most concern, along with iodine and strontium. The iodine's long gone by now, and nobody wants to mention strontium because it's as well known to cause cancer as iodine is.

        It's also a quirk of the testing process, where only certain specified energy signatures are read in one sample. This narrowing of the spectrum to a small range of a known element is useful for the purpose of excluding energy signatures of background contamination (K40 and the rest of the standard list). Signatures in crossover ranges won't be as precise either, so you get some "masking" of other isotopes that might be – or are known to be – present.

        It was never just cesium coming from Daiichi, and it's not just cesium coming out now. It's just cesium they're reporting on and/or testing for.

    It is possible that SFP4 is already history since March 2011.
    They probably took emergency measures and dumped sand, boron,
    concrete etc on the SFP4 or what was left of it. This heavy mass
    is probably sitting at the ground level of the reactor 4 building.
    The structure they have constructed is probably to make a
    sarcophagus like they did in Chernobyl. There is no other way
    to handle a level 7 event.

    The SFP4 deception is to move public attention away from the real problem at Fukushima – the three melt-throughs. The corium from each of these is already in contact with the under ground water table poisoning the pacific at an alarming rate. People in Japan, Korea, China, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, need to be really worried.

    Beside knowing that anything that's going to be read in a dedicated industry piece is going to be biased, I have a problem with the second quote posted here.

    "if there are small doses in large populations, then you could get significant numbers of cancers, even if you the individual risk is low…"

    Same old statistician double-speak that's inconsistent with how they approach their own lives. If they personally got cancer directly attributable to Fukushima, would they shrug their shoulders and think, "Well, the overall population's OK"? I seriously doubt it. It's ridiculous to make such statements in a world which doesn't have and consistently decries sympathetic programs to support those who do feel the effects of individual exposure on a grand level. The thinking is just selfish excuse for individual gain, not in tune with their actual thinking, and moral nonsense. We're increasingly seeing that moral nonsense all over the world with all the proposed building of these plants. The Soviets were more damned responsible, even if what was at stake was their governmental survival. Is Japan any different in that regard?

    I've always felt that the hallmark of a genuinely intelligent person, besides consistency in thought, was humility. It's not a mark of real intelligence, though it might be expediently beneficial, to be able to crunch 10-digit numbers in one's head. It's the ability to realize the implications of those numbers evenly considered.

    Listening last night to Gunderson, John Apsley and Steven Starr on CoasttoCoast, 1 hour each, was very discouraging for us left-coasters regarding the earlier 2014 arrival of unsafe beach water (especially for children), the magnitude and earlier arriving Fuku 'island of junk', 3 time the area of England, now NE of Hawaii, and the increasingly more questionable nature of both San Joaquin CA produce and all Pacific seafood protein.

    With these and other 'expert' nuclear-environmental guests having been asked to return as regular follow-up guests, I am going to buy into the 'coast insider', enabling replay and recording of shows I miss. (I have no relation w. C2C).

    For stacking 500 cans of pre 3/11 and pre 6/11/11 long-dated Pacific tuna, salmon and crab, as well as boxes of other canned and dried foods (and buying nothing Pacific since) I continue to take derision as the 'tuna king', while I also continue to enjoy my weekly ration of what I consider to be the last of the safe Pacific sea foods.

      jump-ball, How can one tell from the packaging if its pre-3/11? The "best-use-by-date" is apparent, and I'm guessing the numeric thread above/below it relates to the date and source. I can't decipher it though, and apparently neither could the store employee. I'm trying to stock-up too. My longer-term plan: aquaponics–raise my own fish and produce indoors. Still, its only a matter of time before radiation fallout is all through the food chain and in us. :-(

        In April 2011 I asked starkist and chickenofthesea what were their post-catch processing and delivery times, and, no surprise, they declined to respond.

        I arbitrarily concluded that the 'pipeline' time from catch to processing/canning, from sea transportation and distribution to warehouses, and delivery to grocery distribution centers and then to store shelves, was at least 3 months, so kept buying until June 2011 and then quit.

        The tuna manufacturers know the harvest and best-by-date relation, and did not and will never reveal the sequence.

        I may possibly have tuna/salmon caught in April-May-June 2011 and quickly put onto the shelves by June, but the tuna, for one, had not made the 2-3 annual cross-pacific migrations that current tuna have, returning 2-3 times to bio-accumulate contamination in their Honshu spawning ground, as well as in the western pacific.

        "Stocking up" now is an idea whose time has passed, but I think your aquaponics will become one of the survival methods in an increasingly contaminated food production environment.

    We (everyone who knows better) really needs to call 'BS' where ever possible on the false meme that's spreading. Specifically, that the US and other governments are not monitoring the radiation. Here in the US, we have a massive radioactivity sensing and tracking apparatus built up since the Cold War began. Its only purpose is to detect and monitor radiation with truly incredible accuracy. Are we really to believe that they've shut the whole thing down while they simultaneously rail on about Iran and North Korea?

    Flat out, the US government at least clearly is tracking the radiation. And despite being elected to protect the commons, they are refusing to do so. Same with Japan, and I assume Canada and others, but they all must cooperate or the passive deception falls apart.

    HELVARG: All bullshit. Fukushima is still way below the levels of nuclear testing we had in the 60s and 70s. There are so many reasons not to eat tuna — mercury levels, it’s an endangered species to name two. Radiation scares people, but it’s acidification of the seas that should scare us, carbon, not uranium.

    AVA: Many people commenting on technical issues flunked high school chemistry and physics. In Mendo, the tinfoil hat people stopped eating fish the day after Fukushima.

    HELVARG: They can eat the native fish, the ones not out in the ocean."

    SP: Sorry Dave…We have a band in Texas named Asleep at the Wheel. I think the vast majority of the human population is also asleep at the wheel. Past accomplishments mean nothing if you can't research and find out the truth. Computer savvy human apes are the New Intelligentsia.

    He obviously hasn't read this.

    (This is just one of the reports at, "The Food Lab",

    2013 – Active cesium contamination of freshwater fish in Fukushima and Eastern Japan.

    Extracts:

    However, contamination levels are possibly higher than the Chernobyl as the cesium is concentrated by the water systems in limitation region.

    In areas within a radius of 100 km from the nuclear plant, active cesium contamination levels of the Ayu are more than 200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 100 km and 200 km, it is around 60–200 Bq/kg. In those between a radius of 200 km and 300 km in which Tokyo is included, it is 20–60 Bq/kg.

    The contamination is recognized as far as Shizuoka prefecture, 400 km south-west from the plant.

  • Who comes up with names like 'doomsters'?

    'patronizing silence' ;)

    The silence, lack of data and overall disinformation campaigns will continue.

    I don't know when the tide will turn, (but I know it will), when it comes to people realizing and understanding that the worst global catastrophe of all time has been upon us and has been continually unfolding for over 2.5 years.

    Fallout and the fallout accumulation via air and sea from three melted cores has no end in sight.

    For anyone to think that this is not having or going to have an affect on every living thing is either extremely naive or just plain stupid.

    We are frozen in our present.

    The future that we had is now history.

    All that's left is to wipe a tear and hope the burn in our souls leaves, at least a scar, for it will never heal.

    Take the heat, feel the burn.
    Don't let the fires of life
    burn your soul.

    Hold the flame,
    feel the pain.
    Do it again
    and again.
    Feel the flame,
    endure the pain.

    Don't let the fires of life
    burn your soul.
