Fukushima Radiation More Than 10 Times The Normal Level Is Detected On California Beaches

Multiple independent tests have confirmed that levels of nuclear radiation are being detected on California beaches that are more than 10 times the normal level. Many believe that this is the result of highly radioactive water from Fukushima that has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is now washing up on California beaches. Others are blaming the radiation spikes on “natural sources”, but they can never seem to identify what those natural sources actually are. If this radiation is from Fukushima, it is only going to get worse over time.

Every single day, another 300 tons of highly radioactive water gets released into the Pacific Ocean at Fukushima.  Some of these radioactive elements have half-lives of about 30 years, so the total amount of radioactive material in the Pacific is continually growing and it will be with us for a very long time.  As this highly radioactive water hits the west coast of the United States, a lot of that nuclear material will end up being deposited on our beaches.  As you will see below, there is evidence that this is already happening.

Scientists all over the world have told us to expect a radioactive ocean plume from Fukushima to hit our shores at some point in 2014.  For example, check out what researchers at the University of South Wales are saying
The first radioactive ocean plume released by the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster will finally be reaching the shores of the United States some time in 2014, according to a new study from the University of New South Wales — a full three or so years after the date of the disaster.

The following graphic comes from that study…

And another team of researchers has concluded that the plume of radiation from Fukushima that will be hitting our shores will "peak in 2016"
Ocean simulations showed that the plume of radioactive cesium-137 released by the Fukushima disaster in 2011 could begin flowing into U.S. coastal waters starting in early 2014 and peak in 2016.
Unfortunately, there are lots of signs that this radioactive plume has already arrived.

Recently, a video that was taken at Pacific State Beach (also known as Surfers Beach) went viral all over the Internet.  That video showed that radiation levels near the water on that beach are up to five times higher than normal background radiation.

Since that time, a number of other researchers have gone over there to confirm these findings.  For example, an electrical engineer with 40 years of experience went down to the beach and measured radiation levels that were about 14 times higher than normal
In a new development, El Granada electrical engineer Steven Weiss, a 40 year veteran designer of Geiger counters, took his own measurements and found hot spots that were returning levels 14 times normal background radiation.
“It’s not normal. I’ve never seen 400 cpm when I just wave my Geiger around.” 
Weiss told the Half Moon Bay Review. “There has to be something radioactive for it to do that.”
And just today I was made aware of another video taken at “Surfers Beach” which showed a peak reading of 380 CPM (counts per minute).  That is more than 10 times above the normal level.  You can watch that video right here.

In addition, back on December 24th one researcher measured a peak reading of 412 CPM on that same beach…

All of these readings are extremely unusual.

In fact, one news crew actually discovered that radiation levels at Surfers Beach are actually 7 times higher than just outside an active nuclear power plant in Diablo Canyon.  Just check out the following video

Unfortunately, the federal government continues to insist that everything is perfectly fine and that we don’t have anything to worry about.

So independent researchers have stepped up to fill the void.

As you can see from the latest NETC map, elevated levels of radiation have been detected in many cities across the western half of the United States.

The government says that there is no reason for alarm.

Others are not so sure.

When it comes to nuclear radiation, a little bit can go a long way.  Just because you can’t see it does not mean that it can’t seriously hurt you.

If you doubt this, just ask those that served on the USS Ronald Reagan when it went over to Japan in the immediate aftermath of the Fukushima disaster.  The following is an excerpt from a recent Ecowatch article
Senior Chief Michael Sebourn, a radiation-decontamination officer assigned to test the aircraft carrier, said that radiation levels measured 300 times higher than what was considered safe at one point. Meanwhile sailors like Lindsay Cooper have contrasted their initial and subsequent feelings upon seeing and tasting metallic “radioactive snow” caused by freezing Pacific air that mixed with radioactive debris.
“We joked about it: ‘Hey, it’s radioactive snow!” Cooper said. “My thyroid is so out of whack that I can lose 60 to 70 pounds in one month and then gain it back the next. My menstrual cycle lasts for six months at a time, and I cannot get pregnant.
“It’s ruined me.”
Cooper said the Reagan has a multimillion-dollar radiation-detection system, but the crew couldn’t get it activated quickly enough.
“And then we couldn’t go anywhere,” she said. “Japan didn’t want us in port, Korea didn’t want us, Guam turned us away. We floated in the water for two and a half months.”
According to the New York Post, at least 70 members of the crew have been diagnosed with radiation sickness, and “at least half” of those have developed cancer…
At least 70 have been stricken with some form of radiation sickness, and of those, “at least half . . . are suffering from some form of cancer,” their lawyer, Paul Garner, told The Post Saturday.
“We’re seeing leukemia, testicular cancer and unremitting gynecological bleeding requiring transfusions and other intervention,” said Garner, who is representing 51 crew members suing the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi energy plant.
If radioactive material from Fukushima is washing up on our shores, don’t we deserve the truth?

Or is the government so concerned about “keeping us calm” that they will lie to our faces while thousands upon thousands of Americans slowly but surely develop cancer and other horrible illnesses?

For much more on how radiation from Fukushima is already affecting us, please see my previous article entitled "36 Signs The Media Is Lying To You About How Radiation From Fukushima Is Affecting The West Coast".

Sadly, most Americans are totally clueless about all of this.

Most Americans just blindly believe whatever the mainstream media tells them to believe.

To illustrate this, political activist Mark Dice recently offered random people cold bottles of “Fukushima Imported Mineral Water” that were marked with a very large radiation label.  Check out what happened

So what do you think?

Should we be concerned about the radioactive water that is crossing the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima?

Sadly the American people are stupid, lazy, and drugged.
And they will die that way before they change or wake up.
Too bad, but they deserve what they will get.

What can the feds do say yes we are in trouble then all will panic ,it will be like Germany when they knew the Russians were coming.
So do thew West coast move East and then where all go to Australia or South America and then for how long ??????
This is like a asteroid is coming but no one knows where it will land.

As a parent with grown children I am comforted by the thought that any topic of national import, can come to the fore around our family get together.
I know that any of my sons if offered such a water would of moved their familys back and asked the guy if he wanted it shoved

up his ass.
Of course they all have not depended upon the government for anything othrr than to protect their nations borders and localy they participate in issues of import to community, schools levys etc.
The government is not Mommy with Daddys balls and their master or lover.
WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to know what the hell our governent is doing and question their actions ; It is just the opposite way around today.
Sorry but if those fn idiots are going to die from ignorance, then let them die, but the worse are they who think a college degree made of parchment is protection from radiation.
I would suggest that a bottle of water from offshore Cali where gov dropped nuke waste in 1950's; And then if you were to try and board a plane today with it, you might not be heard or seen again.
Mice, ya cannot get a bell you made a deal to chase the mice to the cat by lying to them that you belled the cat, and you ring it whenever the cat is hungry.
You now are i ndeed among the bureau-.cats

You want a natural source of radiation? Put your Geiger counter on your wooden table top, note the counts per second. Now put it on your granite or other natural rock counter top.... I suspect you will get readings at least 10 times higher!

Where is the evidence any Calipornia beach radioactivity is from Fukushima? Where is a complete radionuclide study? Silly propaganda artists are trying to scare the public.... so sad that so many buy into this nonsense.

A poll on recycling the polluted water for now ..

To believe that the tons of radioactive gases and water that Fukushima has been spewing into the air and water on a daily basis for nearly three years now are not having any effect on other parts of the world is just plain willful ignorance. Even low-level radiation is dangerous to life forms. Just look at all the sick and dying sea creatures in the Pacific. Look at the herrings bleeding from all orifices. Look at the disintegrating sea stars. Look at the polar bears and seals with fur loss and open sores. Look at the fact that the Pacific sardine population has collapsed to the point of disappearing all together. Just LOOK.

Low level radiation is NOT dangerous to life forms. LOOK at this:

These isotopes that have escaped in Fukushima NPP in Japan:

If Plutonium and Uranium are so harmless, then why such a fuss during the cold war over, nuclear blasts, the subsequent "fallout" or nuclear winter?

Ahem, Mutually assured destruction is all about dirty dirty bombs!

You CANNOT just use CPM as measurement of contamination since you can't compare one detector with another. Different sizes and types and brands of Geiger counters will give completely different readings and thus one reading from one cannot be compared to another.
If you want to know where the radiation is coming from you need to do gamma spectroscopy on it. This requires a scintillation counter. That will tell you exactly WHAT radioactive element is there. A Geiger counter will only tell you that something is there (and it may be natural) but it won't tell you the dose. CPM is NOT "dose" since you don't know how much energy is behind each "count". But if you do a gamma analysis on it you can tell what radioactive elements are there and if you see Cesium then you can be pretty sure that it came from Fukushima or a similar source.

what a crock of )(*&^&*( why are you not reporting the real issue with the radiation and that it is not from fukoshima and that your causing an anxiety overload on the west coast--why are you not doing some real journalism and looking at the chemtrail fall out of the radiation from the skies or investigating the fact that possibly the american and canadian gov'ts are actually dumping radiactive waste along the west coast--
this is such BS it is mind boggling anyone could take you or your journalistic staff seriously--I would rate this as equivalent to the MAD magazine published years ago what a load of HS
