The effects of Fukushima keep spreading and getting worse ..

Another week on paradise: Millions of dead fish reported around the globe last week from Austria to Australia!!

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/03/another-week-on-paradise-millions-of.html

The last week of February proved to be another disastrous week on the planet for marine life.
There are far too many events to post individually so here is a highlighted list below.


28/217...20 tons of dead carp washed up along the beaches of Lake Neusiedl, Austria, experts claim cold water killed the fish.

28/2/17Hundreds of dead fish found along beaches in Huatulco, Mexico

28/217...Hundreds of dead fish found in a river in New South Wales, Australia.
data confirmed severe oxygen depletion in the water.

28/2/17: Four dead whale washes ashore in Virginia.
Virginia Aquarium officials attempt to pull a dead whale from the water using a bulldozer
The whale is at least the second deceased whale found in the lower Chesapeake Bay region in a week's span. Video by Hillary Chesson

27/2/17: Thousands of fish have died in the Magdalena River in Colombia.

5/2/17: Hundreds of dead fish wash up on beaches in Montevideo, Uruguay
Hundreds of fish were found dead on several beaches in the provinces of Montevideo and Canelones, both in the south, in a fact that the authorities of the National Directorat

23/2/17: Massive die off of fish in a river in Thanh Hoa, Vietnam
Local authorities have not been able to take a complete inventory of the quantity of dead fish. They are encouraging people to gather all the carcasses and destroy them, preventing further pollution. Until late Wednesday, there were still cases of dead fish being found in the river.

Expert warns of collapse at Fukushima reactor: “It would be the end of Japan”… New photos show serious structural damage at Unit 2… “It’s a fantasy” that they can decommission plant — AP: Melted fuel has broken pieces of structure in containment vessel

http://enenews.com/expert-warns-of-collapse-at-fukushima-reactor-it-would-be-the-end-of-japan-new-photos-show-serious-structural-damage-its-a-fantasy-that-they-can-decommission-plant-ap-meltedfuel?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ENENews+%28Energy+News%29

Dr. Caldicott: “Those incredibly high measurements [of radioactivity recently detected in Fukushima Daiichi's Reactor No. 2 containment vessel] mean, I think almost certainly, that they will never be able to clean it up or decommission it… Talk about decommissioning and cleaning it up in 100 years… I think it’s a fantasy.”

Host: “What was also revealed in these new photos is what appears to be a hole in a grate at the bottom of the Unit 2 reactor containment vessel. It’s variously been described as one meter or two meters in diameter. What does that mean?”

Dr. Caldicott: … “I spoke to Arnie Gundersen, who’s a nuclear engineer, and he said that the robot did pick up structural damage to the building of Unit 2, which means it makes it unstable should there be another earthquake greater than 7 on the Richter scale — which then means the building could collapse, which then means that would collapse onto the molten core, and also with the spent fuel rods which are incredibly radioactive in the spent fuel pool, they would go down as well. A huge amount of radiation would be released, such that it would be the end of Japan and certainly, very much radioactive fallout in the Northern Hemisphere such that I would probably get my family from Boston to come straight away to Australia.”

Sleepwalking Towards Armageddon: The Nightmare Continues Six Years Later While The Mainstream Media Remains Silent

- And Is A Massive 'Radioactive Snowstorm' About To Strike 50 Million Americans?

http://allnewspipeline.com/Fukushima_6_Years_Later.php

Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.' Hosea 4:3

Back on March 11th of 2011, our world changed forever for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere though most still do not know it. Whether via an 'act of nature' or an 'act of HAARP', the earthquake and resultant tidal wave that struck Fukushima, Japan on that day left a path of death and destruction that has stretched far beyond that island nation.

As nuclear expert Dr. Helen Caldicott recently stated of Fukushima, "highly radioactive water is still pouring into the ocean every day and will likely continue doing so until the end of time". Calling the hopes of cleaning up the mess that's been made 'a fantasy', the stories and videos we examine in this ANP story prove to us we're sleepwalking towards extinction. The 'mass animal deaths' painstakingly kept track of by End Times Prophecy continue with at least '117 known mass death events' in 43 countries in 2017 alone.

According to End Times Prophecy, the year 2016 brought 556 KNOWN 'mass death events' spread over 81 countries. In 2015 there were 828 known 'mass death events' spread over 96 countries. In 2014 there were 651 known 'mass death events' spread over 76 countries. In 2013 there were 798 known mass death events in 93 countries. In 2012 there were 465 'mass death events' documented across 67 countries while in 2011, the year of the disaster, hundreds of mass death events also happened across the planet.

Dr. Caldicott, author of the book "Sleepwalking To Armageddon", also warns us that if another massive earthquake over 7.0 magnitude strikes Fukushima, we could witness not only the 'end of Japan' but the need for parts of the Northern hemisphere to be evacuated after recent photos of Fukushima #2 showed structural damage and a massive hole. In the final video below, Pastor Paul Begley tells us all about that latest story.

As Dane Wigington over at his Geoengineering Watch Blog recently reported,"the triple meltdown nuclear volcanoes at Fukushima continue to dump unimaginable amounts of radiation into the atmosphere and oceans". If the mainstream media doesn't report upon the mass deaths due to Fukushima and this still unfolding tragedy, does that mean it never happened? 

As we learn in this brand new story from ENENews, every day since the tragedy now over 6 years ago, the Pacific Ocean has been completely pummeled while the mainstream media has nearly completely ignored the death and destruction that radiation from Fukushima has brought to the Pacific Ocean and the West coast of America.

Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium – Local Environmental Observer Network, Feb 8, 2017 (emphasis added): Goodnews Bay, Alaska; Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) with lesions — Observation: While on the Goodnews River fishing in early February, (winter) a local resident pulled in a trout and immediately noticed, what looked like pus coming out of a Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma). Is this something that is a natural/unnatural event? Can we consume the fish or is there a recommendation and/or advisory about eating fish with pus coming out of it?

Which will get us first PlanetX or Fukushima ??

Officially Labeled an Extinction Level Event!

http://beforeitsnews.com/health/2017/03/fukushima-officially-labeled-an-extinction-level-event-2726809.html

Fukushima, after nearly 6 years of cover-ups, is now offiically labeled an extinction level event. Yes, that is right, many are taking notice that the cummlative effects of this disaster threatens all life on this planet. The details are in the following video.

Nuclear Investigator: Worry over underground explosions at Fukushima — New data shows molten fuel is “dropping lower each day”, melting deeper into ground below plant — Disaster far worse than public being told — “Why aren’t we reading about this everywhere?”

http://enenews.com/nuclear-investigator-worry-about-underground-explosions-at-fukushima-new-data-shows-molten-fuel-is-dropping-lower-each-day-melting-deeper-into-ground-under-plant-disaster-is-far-worse-than

Excerpts from a column by Robert Cringely (Cringely is a best-selling author and his work has appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, and Forbes. He wrote in 2009 that “there is a place for nuclear power in our energy future”.), Feb 17, 2017 (emphasis added):

    Here’s why I am writing about this subject and why you should take me seriously. Back in 1979 I was hired by the White House to help investigate the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. My friend Robert Bishop, whom I consulted for this column, was the only American at Chernobyl.

    I wrote… that the [Fukushima] accident was far worse than the public was being told and that it would take many decades — if ever — for the site to recover.

    Well it’s six years later and, if anything, the Fukushima situation is even worse. Far from being over, the nuclear meltdown is continuing, the public health nightmare increasing. Why aren’t we reading about this everywhere?


    The most recent evidence… means is there’s a puddle of molten uranium that has melted its way through the steel pressure vessel, through the reinforced concrete containment, through the reinforced concrete foundation of the nuclear facility, and is now working its way through whatever rock or soil lies underneath the foundation, dropping lower each day… If the molten uranium hits an underground aquifer, such a spread could get even worse.

    There is no solution… but there are a few things that can be done to mitigate this crisis, with the main one being what’s being called an ice wall… The point of the ice wall is to contain the poison while also minimizing incursion of water. Starve the puddle of water, the idea goes, and just let the uranium do its thing… water is bad because the uranium’s heat will turn it into hydrogen and oxygen which will then explode. Why worry about such subterranean explosions?

Think of it as fracking. Just as fracking uses explosions to release trapped natural gas, Fukushima-style fracking will fill the fractured rocks and their entrapped water with radioactivity. Here’s the important bit: These new radiation numbers show the uranium puddle is on the move, downward — ever downward. To be even minimally effective the ice wall has to go preferably deeper than the puddle. While the ice wall technique has been well publicized, its required depth hasn’t been. I’ll guarantee you right here that the ice wall doesn’t go deeper — not even close — because that would cost more than the Japanese utility and government are willing to pay. I’ll also guarantee you that 99.9 percent of the Japanese population doesn’t understand this danger.

Can the Pacific Ocean withstand another 50 million tons of radioactive water as the West Coast of North America shows signs of barrenness??

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/03/can-pacific-ocean-withstand-another-50.html

 Since June of 2013 the entire west coast of North America, Canada and Mexico included, have experienced massive die offs of all kinds of creatures.
Sea turtles, whales, sea lions, birds, fish, star fish, dolphins and a whole host of other marine life are dying in incredible numbers and the experts don’t know why.

In the winter of 2015 blue-footed diving seabirds called Cassin’s auklets, had been washing up dead by the thousands on beaches from San Francisco to Alaska, it is thought more than 250,000 died from lack of food.

 The disaster declaration granted by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on Wednesday gives Kodiak and the other Alaska fisheries the ability to seek disaster relief assistance from Congress because of the unexpected large decreases in salmon returns.

The collapse of Alaska's salmon fishing is not the only problem hitting the North-West Coast of North America in the last couple of years, the amount of marine and bird life dying in the area is astonishing, as the list below will prove.

New radiation spikes detected in multiple countries — Mystery deepens as officials work to triangulate source — Nuclear Expert: “It is serious… likely means a continuing release still going on”
   

Published: March 29th, 2017 at 8:53 am ET

http://enenews.com/new-radiation-spikes-detected-in-multiple-countries-mystery-deepens-as-officials-work-to-triangulate-source-nuclear-expert-it-is-serious-likely-means-a-continuing-release-still-going-on

Bellona, Mar 27, 2017: New radioactive Iodine detected in Norway and Finland – more breaking fake news likely to follow — The mystery surrounding a release of iodine over Europe in January deepened earlier this month as a second minor spike of radiation again tripped sensors in Svandhovd, Norway, the Barents Observer reported accurately in an article that will doubtless be followed several false ones from other sources. The new spike, according to instruments monitored by the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority, was measured between March 6 and 13, and, according to Bellona physicist and general director Nils Bøhmer, strongly suggest the iodine release is ongoing… As such, the iodine measurements have become the stuff of Internet legend and fuel for conspiracies, and the newest reports will likely spur further theories… A Twitter fire that started in Europe -– after the reports of the iodine were confirmed by French nuclear authorities in January– spat out 140-character speculation that a nuclear bomb test in Russia, or even an accident at the Kola Nuclear Power Plant, were to blame… RIA Novosti falsely cited reports in Britain’s Independent and the Barents Observer to make its case that the suspicious radiation spike was coming from Ukraine… [W]here the iodine is coming from is still not clear. But nuclear authorities in Finland and Norway are taking the work of trying to triangulate its source seriously.

By Enenews Staff

Mainichi, Mar 28, 2017 (emphasis added): [TEPCO] failed to locate melted nuclear fuel inside the No. 1 reactor at the disaster-stricken Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant… [T]he latest survey on the No. 1 reactor also failed to obtain data necessary to extract melted fuel, such as where the fuel is located. Therefore, the utility is compelled to consider fetching melted fuel in the absence of sufficient data… [T]he robot explored an area around the opening for workers at the bottom of the container vessel… It is believed that most of the melted fuel at the No. 1 reactor has spread across the contaminated water accumulating at the bottom of its container vessel. TEPCO believes that melted fuel is likely leaking from the opening.

Asahi Shimbun, Mar 24, 2017: Some Nuclear Regulation Authority members are skeptical of continuing to send robots into reactors in the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant… These regulators are increasingly calling for a new survey methodology after recent investigations utilizing robots controlled remotely generated few findings and were quickly terminated… The lower part of the reactor’s containment vessel is submerged in water where deposits of fuel debris are believed to reside below the surface after melting through… TEPCO and the government… have yet to collect information on the location, amount and condition of the melted fuel… [T]he surveys centering around the robots so far have failed to produce meaningful results.

Asia Times, Mar 10, 2017: The robots are part of an unprecedented task, challenging engineers to come up with technology that doesn’t exist to deal with a nuclear disaster the likes of which has never been known.

It has been reported (possibly even here, by Mad Max) that those robots they keep sending in to the Fuku disaster area last a short while, like hours, or maybe a day, and then start melting and/or disintegrating.

 Good thing the nuclear power industry knows what it's doing!

'Nuclear Attack' Upon America Rages On - Why Isn't The MSM Reporting Upon This 'Nuclear War Without A War'?

http://allnewspipeline.com/Fukushima_Nuclear_Attack_Upon_America.php

Back on October 30th of 2013, award-winning scientist, environmentalist and radio and TV broadcaster David Suzuki was speaking at an event on public water policy at the University of Alberta in Alaska when he brought up the tsunami-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and particular damaged reactor #4. Claiming during his speech that "Fukushima is the most terrifying situation that I can imagine", he set off what was then a nuclear bombshell by stating:

“I have seen a paper saying that if, in fact, the fourth plant goes in an earthquake … it’s ‘bye-bye Japan’ and everybody on the West Coast of North America should evacuate,” Mr. Suzuki is seen to say in a video of the event captured by Alberta artist Aaron Paquette. “If that isn’t terrifying then I don’t know what is,” he added.

While several months later according to this story from the National Post, Suzuki stated he regretted making those comments, he never went so far as to renege the claim he'd made and in fact, appeared to double down upon it:

“I regret having said it, although my sense of potential widespread disaster remains and the need for an urgent international response to dealing with the spent rods at Fukushima remains.”

While the entire mainstream media and much of the world have either censored Fukushima or are completely clueless about what's going on there, popular surfing' website 'Surfline' recently ran a report called "Ocean Oddities: Oh, Fuk! Fallout From Fukushima" within which they warn of Fukushima fallout reaching the US West Coast. Used to avoiding sharks while surfing the ocean's waves, a new threat has emerged they report, "radioactive water washing into the sea."

While even ABC in 2013 ran with the 'West coast evacuation' story as seen and heard in the 1st video below, they soon killed the story with no reason given despite the fact that their report confirmed the mass die-off we've all been witnessing and is one of the most accurate msm reports on Fukushima we've ever witnessed. RT still has their story on the possibility of the West coast needing to be evacuated published and available online for all to read.

Reporting in their story that the true dangers of Fukushima were still ahead in the future and that radiation was already arriving in America and would likely continue to do so for a very, very long time, what has happened to the msm reporting on Fukushima since then and is what's now happening to America due to Fukushima one of the 'roots' of the msm's pushing of 'fake news'? The screenshot below courtesy of Shattering the Matrix.

In the story over at Global Research written by Professor Michel Chossudovsky he reported the long-term repercussions from Fukushima upon America will be like 'a nuclear war without the war'. And while the large majority of Americans haven't yet discovered our nation's been 'nuked', several years ago Michael Snyder wrote a story called "28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima", a story which proved to us then that Suzuki's and Chossudovsky's warnings to America should not be overlooked.

And we get in the latest headlines from ENENews from the past week alone, stories that will never be adequately covered by the MSM, more proof that the 'nuclear war without the war' rages on whether or not the msm reports upon

"Emergency Alert" Declared At Nuclear Facility In Washington; Evacuation Ordered, No-Fly Zone In Place!!

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-09/emergency-alert-declared-hanford-nuclear-facility-washington-evacuation-ordered

Update 4: Washington Emergency Management has released a map showing the distances from the incident to various neighborhoods... non-essential employees in 200 East Area have been released. Swing shift north of the WYE Barricade is cancelled.

Meanwhile, Private pilots in the area have been told to avoid flying over Hanford. The Hanford Patrol is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to put a formal air restriction in place until the FAA can confirm there is no danger.

Update 1: A robot is being used to sample the contaminated air and soil in the area around the collapse…

According to KING-TV, a "tunnel in a plutonium finishing plant collapsed in Hanford early Tuesday morning. The tunnel was full of highly contaminated materials such as hot radioactive trains that transport fuel rods."

    The dark area underneath the tall orange flag is the collapse site – a hole left by the tunnel collapse. pic.twitter.com/7fvqsRimhC

    — Susannah Frame (@SFrameK5) May 9, 2017

As Breaking911 reports, some workers were being evacuated while others were advised to shelter-in-place. The Hanford Fire Department is on scene and updates will be posted as they are available. Workers in the vicinity are still being sheltered as a precaution.

"This is catastrophic. This is probably the biggest event to ever happen in tank farm history. The double shell tanks were supposed to be the saviors of all saviors (to hold waste safely from people and the environment),” said former Hanford worker Mike Geffre.

The new leak poses problems on several fronts. The outer shell of AY-102 does not have the exhaust or filtration system needed to keep the dangerous gases created by the waste in check. Workers have been ordered to wear full respiratory safety gear in the area, but the risk remains. And unlike Fukushima where cleanup crews are aware of the danger, in Hanford virtually nobody is aware of the dangers of the radioactive seepage.

Oh, and let's not forget that the accumulation of waste in the outer shell also means "the deadliest substance on earth is that much closer to the ground surrounding the tank. And currently there is no viable plan in place to take care of it."

You know its bad when someone like this "goes on the record" ..

Michio KaKu Fukushima The end of Humanity :-\

http://www.mydailyinformer.com/michio-kaku-fukushima-the-end-of-humanity/
 
We know it’s bad – but how bad?


10 days ago from this writing, the sardine fishery of British Columbia, Canada was reported to have “inexplicably” collapsed. Simply no sardines were caught and the fleet went home, empty-handed. Starfish and seal populations in that region are also collapsing.

We’ve heard now about three complete meltdowns that are occurring at the afflicted power plant at Fukushima – but we’ve never heard about the fact that there are actually 6 reactors at the site! We know that this week, 2 separate typhoons (the term for hurricanes in the western Pacific) will be colliding exactly over Fukushima this week, all the better to disperse the unfathomable tonnage of hot particles into the Pacific Ocean Basin, set to do further ruin to the already-collapsing ecosystems throughout this immense area.

Expert: Plutonium-241 from Fukushima nearly 70,000 times more than atomic bomb fallout in Japan — Gov’t Labs: Large areas of oceans contaminated by plutonium from events such as Fukushima; Build-up in biosphere expected; Considerable hazard to humans — Officials: Molten fuel now ‘particle-like’, contains ‘special’ nuclear materials.
 The US … already knew about the unusually high temperature of the reactors from the Global Hawk data, and determined that “the fuel has already melted”.
