Quote:For now, Buesseler’s citizen-science initiative is humming along. Donations from more than four hundred people and a range of organizations, including Lush, have enabled testing at more than sixty sites along the Pacific coast of North America. Inevitably, though, interest will fade again. To keep measurements going during his next stint in the wilderness, not to mention after he retires, Buesseler is working with his Woods Hole colleagues on drones that could automate sample collection, and on isotope-absorbing ankle bracelets for surfers (“So you can see what the surf is like and what the cesium is like off Redondo Beach”). The real challenge, though, isn’t technical; it’s persuading people that we need to know what is in the ocean, and how it spreads, before the next Fukushima. “It is tempting to just run models, but to me that isn’t enough,” Buesseler said. “Let’s get some real data.”


It seems we are being told to "not worry our pretty little(?) heads". dunno.gif

Isn't it odd only one worker was affected?

Scientists' reach out to public with their findings, but face hate and distrust.

"Dr. Cullen said he understands that people are afraid of radiation, that they distrust governments and are wary of scientists. Despite that, he’s still hoping to reach out to them with scientific facts.

“I feel that the education system has failed these individuals in certain respects,” he said. “I feel their motivations are genuine and their desire to understand is laudable, but I think [the reaction of hate and fear] highlights the need for scientists to engage more directly with the public, to explain what we do, how we do it.”

Dr. Cullen is right. The scientific community does need to do a better job of talking directly to the public. The unfair attacks he’s experienced may make others reluctant to do that. But without their voices, we are left listening to the less informed – and to the haters."

Oh gee, no, oh mee oh my,

how could we ever distrust the fine, upstanding class of humans

who always sided with the dictators and globalist elites to invent
ever more efficient ways of ğkking killing us all.

WTF did the distinguished Dr Cullen expect?
Little clowns waving flags?

They bloody well need to be distrusted it seems, after world wars, atomic
bombs, hypersurveillance and goddamn RFID chips.


Sorry for off-topic rant.
Thank you to scientists and nerds for the interwebz. chuckle.gif

The scientists' science and research keeps coming up with the same results.

Nuclear energy could be our savoir, with much less damage to the planet or to us. (?)

We have more to worry about.

"The plant "was not well prepared for the severe natural hazard," Amano said. Following the disaster, Amano said he visited nuclear plants in several countries and saw that considerable safeguards had been introduced.

"After Fukushima, lots of improvements have been made," he said.

Each government, he said, ultimately has to decide whether to embrace nuclear energy for power generation based on many factors, including the availability of other options like hydropower.

Japan remains committed to nuclear power despite the meltdowns at Fukushima. Only two of the country's 43 workable reactors are currently online, with the others shut down pending safety checks, but the government wants to restart as many as possible.


With the increased interest in nuclear energy safety should be the number one concern...now let's bring in terrorism and we have another nightmare on our hands.

Quote:Huge Fukushima Cover-Up Exposed, Government Scientists In Meltdown

Fukushima radiation just off the North American coast is higher now than it has ever been, and government scientists and mainstream press are scrambling to cover-up and downplay the ever-increasing deadly threat that looms for millions of Americans.

Following the March 2011 meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, reactors have sprayed immeasurable amounts of radioactive material into the air, most of which settled into the Pacific Ocean. A study by the American Geophysical Union has found that radiation levels from Alaska to California have increased and continue to increase since they were last taken.

The West coast is being fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima. Lots of proof in link.................

The researchers are still saying radiation is still below gov't safe levels.



What a great idea..find out for yourself.

Quote:Second, we are moving ahead with development of the RadBand, a wearable device that gives any swimmer or surfer a chance to gather scientific data about the level of radioactive elements in the ocean just by going in the water. As results are shared and our user base grows, every person becomes a valuable data point as we expand the concept to other measurements of ocean properties. - See more at: http://ourradioactiveocean.org/results.h...JUaEc.dpuf

Quote:The National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), a government-affiliated entity, said in late August that the trunks of fir trees are not growing vertically. Fir trees are among the 44 species that the Environment Ministry asked the NIRS and other research organizations to study in trying to determine the effects of radiation on living creatures. The NIRS reported that the frequency of these mutations corresponds to a rise in natural background radiation. More than 90 percent of fir trees in the town of Okuma, just 3.5 kilometers from the crippled plant, showed signs of abnormal growth… Among other changes reported: the legs of plant lice collected in Kawamata, a town more than 30 km from the plant, were found to be missing or crooked and the white blood cell count of Japanese monkeys was lower in Fukushima, the prefectural capital, which is about 60 km from the plant… There is also a possibility that some animals, even if they exhibited signs of radiation’s effect, may no longer be alive for analysis.
