California Slammed With Fukushima Radiation

Posted on March 30, 2012 by WashingtonsBlog

Fukushima Radiation Plume Hit Southern and Central California

The Journal Environmental Science and Technology reports in a new study that the Fukushima radiation plume contacted North America at California “with greatest exposure in central and southern California”, and that Southern California’s seaweed tested over 500% higher for radioactive  iodine-131 than anywhere else in the U.S. and Canada:

Projected paths of the radioactive atmospheric plume emanating from the Fukushima reactors, best described as airborne particles or aerosols for 131I, 137Cs, and 35S, and subsequent atmospheric monitoring showed it coming in contact with the North American continent at California, with greatest exposure in central and southern California. Government monitoring sites in Anaheim (southern California) recorded peak airborne concentrations of 131I at 1.9 pCi m−3

Anaheim is where Disneyland is located.

  • The U.S. and the world desperately needs a mass and persistent outcry against the shroud of deceit that our government, the Japanese government, the nuclear industry, and the mainstream media have cast over Fukushima and the myriad of dangers it represents to our food supply, the environment, and human health.
