There has been a great deal of information on the Fukushima Daiichi meltdown in Japan. This page will act as a guide in documenting the more recent material in regards to this disaster — The severity of the disaster has been downplayed by Japanese officials and other foreign governing bodies alike. Many people died from the initial onslaught of the tsunami, but concurrently other disasters are taking place like the continuation of radiation leaking from the Fukushima site. Governments, official reports, and mainstream media are currently downplaying the affect Fukushima is having on the environment, food supplies, health of populations affected, the ocean and marine life.
The Fukushima Nuclear disaster occurred when a magnitude 9.0 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohuku bombarded the ocean waters causing a massive tsunami. The Tohuko earthquake was the fifth most powerful on earth since 1900(since modern records), and the most powerful earthquake to strike Japan. The tsunami waves generated from the Tohuku earthquake reached heights of over 130 feet and stretched 6 miles inland in some parts of Japan — It was a full blown disaster with the earthquake/tsunami combination alone.
Enter the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility.
NPA of Japan confirmed over 15,000 deaths, more than 2,500 missing and countless injured, more than 4 million had no working electricity — The horrors of Japan would only be beginning, as the tsunami struck the Fukushima nuclear power plant triggering a level 7 meltdown measured by the INES — Only the Chernobyl meltdown of 1986 in Ukraine has been rated with a level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale in terms of severity. Chernobyl was regarded as the defacto nuclear meltdown example. In 25 years time there has been over 1 million deaths resulting from the meltdown in Chernobyl and Fukushima’s meltdown is considered to be a greater hazard (which is downplayed by the media.)
Three reactors experienced a level 7 meltdown and it was discovered through investigations these meltdowns were the result of man made error and negligence per the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission.
THE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI of March 11, 2011 were natural disasters of a magnitude that shocked the entire world. Although triggered by these cataclysmic events, the subsequent accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant cannot be regarded as a natural disaster. It was profoundly a man made disaster. -Official Report Of The Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission
Where radiation is now
Unnatural amounts of radiation being detected off coast of San Francisco (video below)
An amateur video of a Geiger counter showing what appear to be high radiation levels at a Coastside beach has drawn the attention of local, state and federal public health officials. Since being posted last week, the short video has galvanized public concerns that radioactive material could be landing on the local coastline after traveling from Japan as a result of the 2011 meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi reactors.
