Where is the international community to join forces to save ourselves?

Total fail, that's what.

I am still trying to understand the radioactivity uptake in life as the scientists and government (not close to Fukushima (although that can be said for the Japanese gov't too)) aren't very concerned.

Quote:Fish also excrete cesium fairly efficiently, losing a few percent per day. So if fish are no longer exposed to new contamination sources, the levels in their tissue should decrease fairly quickly.

Of particular concern for top-level consumers is the potential that these radioisotopes will be concentrated as they make their way up the food chain—what ecologists call biomagnification. Fortunately, cesium shows only modest biomagnification in marine food chains—much less than mercury, a toxic metal, or many other harmful organic compounds such the insecticide DDT and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Fisher said.

Quote:The robots sent in to find highly radioactive fuel at Fukushima's nuclear reactors have "died." A subterranean "ice wall" around the crippled plant meant to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated has yet to be finished. And authorities still don't know how to dispose of highly radioactive water stored in an ever-mounting number of tanks around the site.

California bans commercial crab fishing due to excessive radiation in seafood.

(NaturalNews) In November of last year, California state officials placed an indefinite hold on the commercial crab season, in order to protect public health. The reason given by the state was dangerously high levels of algal toxins in the bodies of the crabs.

But according to New York radio station 95.1 FM (SuperStation 95), insiders from the California Fish and Game Commission have revealed that the real reason for the ban was dangerously high levels of radioactivity resulting from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster

*Snip*

Quote:Last week, California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials announced the opening of both the recreational and commercial fisheries after recent tests showed that domoic acid levels in crabs caught off the coast of California south of the Mendocino-Sonoma County line no longer posed a risk to human health.

I guess it depends on which story you want to believe.

And an even bigger question, why has nobody replied since my last post?

Sorry if I killed the thread, it was not my intention whatsoever, I can be goofy at times, my friends can attest to that.

I think the truth is yet to come...so we wait.

"But Buesseler and other scientists are calling for more monitoring. No federal agency currently samples Pacific Coast seawater for radiation, he said.

"I'm not trying to be alarmist," Buesseler said. "We can make predictions, we can do models. But unless you have results, how will we know it's safe?"

Let's hope it holds and that Japan upgrades their reactors to the spent fuel eating ones.

Yeah, when Fukushima went off, my Prius did a longitude axis flip(like an american football) and landed on its wheels. Then I had 4 seizures. It took aboput a week to get well again
