Fukushima Radiation Leak ‘Getting Worse’ According To Scientists
In March of 2011, a large tsunami disabled three Fukushima Daiichi reactors by taking down their power supply. Within 72 hours, the lack of power to the reactors caused them to meltdown officially. And the reactors have been leaking radiation into our oceans at what some scientists are now calling “catastrophic” levels ever since.

Yes, the same ocean we fish from. The same ocean some hope to desalinate. These scientists believe that ahead are the days of an ocean with an ecosystem so compromised by radioactive material that we will no longer be able to consume fish from it.
Andrew Kishner, the founder of Nuclear Crimes, says that we are essentially being lied to. He claims the powers that be are “downplaying” the true despair that is the Fukushima meltdown and ensuing radioactive leak.
Here’s how it breaks down:
TEPCO is the company responsible for monitoring and conveying the vital stats from the meltdown. They’ve not been shy in conceding that nuclear radiation is in fact, leaking into the ocean, but Kishner is now accusing them of covering up that the situation is “getting worse.” Kishner also claims that 300 to 450 tons of nuclear-contaminated materials leak from Fukushima on a daily basis.
Remember, it was only a month ago that TEPCO was stating it would be dumping all the radioactive material into our oceans.
Some of this ‘coverup’ is being played out by debates over science (imagine that). A scientist named Ken Buesseler claims that the radiation levels currently found in fish may not be at levels toxic to humans. But many scientists say there isn’t such a thing as “safe levels” of radioactive material consumption. Additionally, realize that Beusseler says “may not be toxic.” How many people are willing to roll the dice of health?
According to econewsmedia.com, the contaminated water contains traces of radioactive iodine, cesium, and strontium-89 and 90.
The situation is entirely too catastrophic in magnitude for humans to control it. Fishing industries in the region have been toppled by contamination reports ran on fish. And now there are even studies providing evidence that fish off the coast of the United States and Canada are adversely affected.
What’s likely most important, as things stand, is if this is largely turning into a coverup of epic proportions. Concealing the reality of this situation would be a global crime against humanity. Our oceans are one of our lifebloods, we need to understand how compromised they may or may not be.
Underwater Robot Finds Melted Nuclear Fuel In Lava-Like State
A recent robot probe captured what appears to be fall out from the 2011 meltdown. The image reveals what many believe to be melted nuclear fuel that deposited itself as a cover on the ocean floor.
Some of the deposits are 3-feet in thickness. This was found via the robot probe below Fukushima’s Unit 3 reactor.
Fukushima Radiation Levels Are “Astronomical” According To Washington Post
Back in February of 2011, the Washington Post reported that radiation levels being released were “astronomical.” TEPCO claimed the levels were at 530 sieverts per hour. Even a minuscule amount of exposure to this level of radiation could kill a human. We are also talking about infertility and hair loss and cancer. These recordings were taken from the reactor’s core, however, one must ask, where is this stuff being deposited?
But not to worry, the same article from the Washington Post cited an expert as saying that the Japanese people shouldn’t be alarmed by this. So truly, nothing to see here, right?
Here’s what Brown wrote on Safecast’s website:
It must be stressed that radiation in this area has not been measured before, and it was expected to be extremely high. While 530 Sv/hr is the highest measured so far at Fukushima Daiichi, it does not mean that levels there are rising, but that a previously unmeasurable high-radiation area has finally been measured. Similar remote investigations are being planned for Daiichi Units 1 and 3. We should not be surprised if even higher radiation levels are found there, but only actual measurements will tell.
Preppers And Nuclear Meltdown Scenarios
The fact is, nuclear reactors are all over countries worldwide, including the United States. Power grid compromises, human error and even acts of terrorism can cause a nuclear reactor to meltdown and inevitably put your life in danger. Check out our how to survive a nuclear meltdown.
