Japan continues to pour radioactive materials into the Pacific Ocean | The Whale People

Endangered Whales and Life: Japan continues to pour radioactive materials into the Pacific Ocean

What is left of the Fukishima Reactors in the aftermath of the recent earthquake

In today’s JAPAN TODAY newspaper, Fukushima plant operators stated that dumping the radioactive water from the recent nuclear meltdown had less effect on the environment.

As stated in the article:

“The operator, which earlier projected that the readings could reach 170 billion bequerels, said it had not detected any substantial changes in the levels of radioactive materials in seawater sampled off the plant’s shore and farther offshore since the release.”

“OK,  science class students, let’s do an experiment. Let’s take a cup of radioactive materials (make sure you have your HazMat suit on…) and then pour it into the ocean. Now lets go off shore about five miles and “see” if we can detect the radiation.”

Little Hiyuko raises her hand.

“Yes, Hiyuko?”

“Teacher, because the sea is so big and a little cup of radioactivity so small, wouldn’t the water disperse the radioactivity?”

“Yes, that’s true, Hiyuko.”

“But it’s still radioactive! What about the fish and all the marine life? And don’t people eat fish and crabs and stuff?”

“Well, yes, they do. But they can go other places to get it. And Hiyuko, it’s such a small amount of radioactive material. You’d have to eat a lot of fish to get poisoned. Besides that, Hiyuko, some day you are going to die anyway!”

That is the way it is being communicated in Japan. I know several teachers and students of teachers who have been told this by school administrators. With over 10,393 tons of contaminated water poured into the Pacific Ocean (and continuing), dispersed radioactive materials, like an infected open sore, are being poured into the Pacific Ocean daily.

I can see the officials saying:

“Well, it’s a big ocean. And anyway, it’s OUR ocean. We can do what we want and NOBODY has the right to tell us what to do. Besides, where else do we put it? We have to put it somewhere.”

Remember, that type of thinking is the same used about harvesting whales. Let the Japanese do this for another year and they will be saying “it’s tradition!”

What about everyone else whose country borders on the Pacific Ocean?

“The release of contaminated water sparked concern among such countries as China, South Korea and Russia over the possible impact on marine life and the environment, with Seoul complaining that it had not been notified in advance.”

Well the Japanese reporting agency “TEPCO” dismissed this:

“…its latest release of contaminated water could pose an immediate risk to health, saying the level of radiation a person would be exposed to by eating seafood caught in nearby waters every day for a year would amount to 0.6 millisievert, which is still lower than the annual exposure limit of 1 millisievert for ordinary people.”

This is the same way that government officials played down the initial havoc caused by the recent earthquake with the Japanese Nuclear Reactors. In fact, it was not until recent pressures by noted nuclear physicists that Japanese officials finally admitted that the situation will not resolve for some time, upgraded the size of the actual earthquake, and increased the radioactive perimeter for human safety.

It is a mess, no doubt.

But the real insidious gesture, as the article states:

“TEPCO threw three sandbags each containing 100 kilograms of zeolite, a mineral that absorbs radioactive materials, into the sea near the plant on Friday to reduce the levels of contamination.”

Well, that’s nice. Three sandbags to handle 10,000 tons of contaminated sea water? The sandbags are supposed to gather radioactive material. Absorbing the radioactive material they become “seamines (landmines underwater)” due to the fact that the radioactive concentration increases hundreds if not thousand folds in each bag and now just sits on the surface of the ocean bottom.

Notice the article never even mentions collecting these sandbags. They are just going to leave them there.

And, well, if you don’t see it, who cares?

And friends, it is not just limited to Japan. Currently unmarked US planes are flying over the Gulf pouring oil dispersant to hide the fact that the oil spill has not been handled.

It is unfortunate that so many people and creatures continue to be plagued and affected by a country who wants you to only obey and be a pawn in their game. We will all play into it unless something is done to stop the insanity.

    Thanks for telling it like it is without holding back. They are also not mentioning the fact that ANY amount of radiation bears the potential to be dangerous and affect health, even from a one-time small exposure, as released in a major U.S. study several years ago. In other words, there is a minute chance that even one x-ray could cause cancer. And all this also ignores the fact that radiation collects in bodies, human and animal, increasing over time with each successive exposure, unless it is somehow detoxified. Japan needs to stop plugging the hole in the dam with inadequate measures and go all-out to contain this radiation, now.

    Thank you Daveda! I just found out that Japan Today has blocked me from commenting on their news articles!

    I wonder why?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm…….

  3. essay paper Says:

    What is the news? What happens now in Fukushima? I hope ecological disaster is not so great as we think.

  4. Jon Soeder Says:

    It is pretty much out of the news. The worst thing is that the monies that are going to to Japan are not getting to the people that need them. Most of the pets are being left to die; a chicken farmer was not allowed to feed hi 10,000 or so animals and they are all starving to death. Although this is nothing to compare to the loss of human life, the point is that the money to care for these people is going elsewhere.
