At 19:00 in

Timothy Mousseau, Professor of biological studies at the University of South Carolina:

In terms of fish from the West Coast, what we need to be doing is monitoring the ebb and flow of these pockets of high contamination […]

Given what we’re seeing off the coast of Japan right now with some of these new models and these new studies showing pockets of fairly concentrated materials can be carried relatively intact — even all the way across the ocean — there may be little patches of areas that are affected in a significant way.

    "there may be little patches of areas that are affected in a significant way."

    I love the fact that the "experts" are still using qualifiers like may.

    The radiation is not dissipating. It's getting worse.

    All life on this planet is in jeopardy.

    May the universe watch over us all…

    • <strong>I want Jesus Christ to look over me. This is the worst disaster the world has ever seen and virtually no reporting on it except for this great website. EneNews can't stop the radiation unfortunately but I am glad they report on it. It is totally tragic that the young children couldn't have been evacuated when this thing happened. Japan must be an evil country…has to be for the most part to let those poor innocent children to be harmed in such a cold caloused manner. Japan for the most part must be a society devoid of human compassion and altruism for their society and for the world.</strong>

    The interview with Dr. Mousseau begins at around 17:50.

    Note: He called from Chernobyl.

  • TheBigPicture TheBigPicture

    It's happening now, radiation in the wind and carried by the sea, non-stop.

    • Yes..I know the radiation is in the wind and the ocean waves washing up in California and in the rain coming down in America..that falls in the grass that the cattle eat which us humans eat.

      • bo bo

        The irony is that grass fed organic beef is higher in radiation than factory farm beef

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          bo, is that because Cesium 137 (in particular) is concentrated in green grass, and more so than, say, corn or soy?

          Do you happen to have a citation for that? I'm assuming you're correct. Would just like a reference, in case anyone asks me for "proof."

          • bo bo

            I forget where I saw it but it was very extensive measurement.
            But don't take my word for it because I'm still trying to decipher the finer pointsof measuring radiation in food. I guess a lot of people do it all wrong

          • bo bo

            But my sister in Japan said people who had healthier eating habits (like eating lots of leafy greens and eating grass fed beef) actually often got hit hard with cesium compared to someone with a mcdonald diet… very ironic and sad.

            I think the same goes to milk from grass fed organic milk, and I read a study on that too at some point.. sorry no link

      Isn't that sad.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Yes, or-well, I think it's from an animated short movie which came out in late 2011, or early 2012. There might have been an article about it here. If not, one of the "Newsers posted a link to the movie.

      Can't find a link. Looks like the same artist's work. The radiation came down as red and black dots. The plants, people, and animals took up all the radiation, and then just melted away, if I remember right ….

      I'm MEEEELLLLLLTINGGGG!

  • It's evening now on the west coast. I'm going for a walk to a spot nearby where people like to fish. It's an idyllic place and they seem so happy. There's no point ruining their day by mentioning that Pacific fish have been nuked for two and a half years.

    Anyway, we're breathing the air and drinking the water – all poisoned courtesy of the Japanese government and all those involved in this disaster.

    Why add to the fishermen's misery by mentioning Fukushima? They should enjoy their fish dinner tonight.

    Timothy! Watch out for those burning tires!

    A little bit of truth travels a long ways.

    Now think about those first few months of this disaster, where #1 and #3 blew up and SFP #4 burned, and you realize why the radiation monitors were shut off.

    A grave mistake for many…

    "a change of feeling is a change in destiny"

    we can win them over with our truth telling, and thereby begin to save ourselves from the nuclear disasters thus avoided … and have a hope to save something from the ongoing Nuclear Holocaust …

    I believe we are close to a tipping point (Bill Maher etc.) where nuclear apologies will seem risible and ludicrous to all thinking persons … with Facebook and the viral nature of truth, spreading person to person …

    Bring it on 'newsers … the end of nuclear is nigh … and we've got work to do!!! (Dry casking and such …)

    peace to all!

    • I long for this day.

      "…where nuclear apologies will seem risible AND ludicrous to all thinking persons…" – nfv

      I don't understand why it has not been that way all along.

      Perhaps not enough people thinking?

      or…

      Maybe the thinkers were conned and lied to and a small group of them were 'trained' and 'paid off' to perpetuate that con.

      The con being that Nuclear Power was clean, safe and cheap. It should be more than obvious now to the majority that these claims are absolutely not true.

      The Nuclear Industries nightmares, of catastrophe and being caught in their lies, has now come to fruition.

      Alex Baldwin and Christie Brinkley are also now anti-nuclear activists.

    God must be saying to himself, "I scattered radiation around the planet and made it very difficult to find just to see if Man was stupid and greedy enough to try and collect it and create pieces of "Hell" with it….sure enough he proved me RIGHT again!" "So much for Man using his, "Free Will" to help progress his fellow man…what a disappointment I created…."

    God says, "Well, if Man is so smart to create all his nuclear toys then, he better be smart and UN-create them otherwise, they will turn on him real fast!"

    What a embarrassment to God all you nuclear addicts are! I can't believe I have to share the same planet with them and these idiots are crapping it up!

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      Nuclear engineers are so smart, they can design a machine they cant figure out how to fix. They made a poison that is SO strong, if you just stand next to it, it will kill you. They were smart enough to be paid by the military industrial leaders, and smart enough to build these mega death machines all over the world. Why they were so smart, that most people believe that nuclear is safe and Fukushima NPP didnt kill a single person

    • Hey, your not supposed to talk about God on this website. It offends the Atheists. Nevertheless, I believe as a red blooded Canadian that if Jesus was a Canadian he would have turned water into fine Canadian beer. I truly have faith in that. God or the Aliens, or the Evolution Process, whichever you prefer, put the oil, uranium and other poisonous things deep into the earth and put many plants, poppy's, hemp, coca, cocoa, mushrooms, fruits, veggies, beautiful women, beautiful men, pretty flowers, pretty trees, clean water, clean air and love within easy reach. Much to Gods surprise, mankind prefered the poisons or if you believe the Alien story one of the two Martians won the bar bet or if you are an athiest, evolution is continually evolving and its all good.
      Simi Sara is an awesome personality and one of my faves. Will now listen to her show. But I have heard this type of thing before. Radiation does not disperse evenly. Its negatively charged and isotopes are changing into other matter releasing energy in terms of magnetic and ionizing radiation. Therefore, secret army government studies aside, we really do not understand the dispersal pattern. I won't push it by saying God Bless so Peace.

  • Now I've heard the podcast. "Given what we’re seeing off the coast of Japan right now with some of these new models and these new studies showing pockets of fairly concentrated materials can be carried relatively intact". Getting late. I need to verify and find out what new studies buddy is talking about. He's saying radiation doesn't dilute and disperse. It remains intact. A blob of radiation on the beach. That Lake Barret guy paints a different picture, but as I said before he has been hired to advise Tepco on what they can get away with. Mr. "I used to work for Talisman, who have particular expertise in supporting cases where releases of radioactive, hazardous, or toxic materials to the environment have been alleged, including worker exposure litigation and “downwinders” litigation."(obviously fighting the downwinders) http://www.talisman-intl.com/practice.php?practice=Litigation&page=description
    Lake Barret says "This is not finished but I don't believe there's anything of major concern, and they do have a, quote, 'leak' control system there. But it needs to be better addressed and needs to be explained much better than it's been explained." and "The levels that are, quote, 'moving' are very small and very low risk and, you know, water flows towards the sea so where's it going? It goes towards the sea. But as far as any radioactivity of concern, in my opinion, is being adequately controlled." http://www.ntd

    Ok, I'll leave God out. So I'll say, "The ONE that is smarter than ALL of MANKIND combined" how's that? Or (I like this one), "The ONE that cared about EVERYTHING and let it continue."

    But, it's OK to say Satan on the site isn't it?
    Satanic seems to note a non-religious reference.
    So if you are a believer in Satan, it's OK to say it because Satan is not deemed a "religious figure" but, there are many people in the World who are believers in Satanic teachings.

    Nuclear power is based on creating a "small piece of Hell" that is nothing more than pure Evil. You can justify it as, "Clean Power" but at the same time it will kill everything instantly if released….for 1000s of years! WTF?

    So saying anything about a positive creator is bad but, talking about an evil destroyer is good! Sounds right for THIS World…..

    I think Scientists should look at this as to barriers in the Pacific Ocean.

    Start dropping Kelp plants in strings along the Pacific and other sea bearing plants that neutralize and eat radiation.
