TV: Fukushima “is the most important issue going on in the world, everyone should stop what they’re doing and work together” — Newspaper Editor: Gov’t afraid to look into Fukushima as it could lead to destruction of fishing industry on West Coast (VIDEO) (ENENews, Jan 13, 2014):

Daily Nexus (UC Santa Barbara), Opinion Editor Emile Nelson, Jan. 9, 2014: Start Thinking Fukushima […] it is impossible to avoid seeing and feeling the effects of this tragedy, even here in sunny Santa Barbara. […] Recently, there has been a great deal of concern surrounding the potential consequences of this kind of radiation: Is our seafood still safe to eat? Is the Pacific Ocean still swimmable? How far could the radiation reach if it is actually a part of the Pacific’s ecosystem? […] Fearing that exploring these questions further could lead to the destruction of the fishing industry of the Pacific Ocean, it is a difficult topic for any official government agency to address and, thus, the uncertainty remains. […] Santa Barbara needs to start paying attention to how the aftermath of the crisis at Fukushima is being handled because it will absolutely affect our future, one way or another. If we want to keep our community safe from the effects of this tragedy, we need to remind the world that we are watching and paying attention and that we will not simply stand by as our world deteriorates. Think something, write something, say something or do something, just don’t ignore the fact that one day, safely surfing or even walking the beach at UCSB may be nothing but a bittersweet memory.

Abby Martin, host: This is the most important issue going on in the world. Everyone should stop what they’re doing and work together. What can the average person do? Because I’m feeling really helpless […] I’m from California, my family’s there — what can we do to combat this, any advice?

Mimi German, RadCast.org: I think that we have to look at mitigation. We can’t get rid of the fallout, we can’t get rid of what’s happening at Fukushima. No one can, that’s the problem with Fukushima. It’s going to be a perpetual disaster to us everywehere on the planet for thousands of years to come. What we can do is if we got monitors for instance, we can do our own testing in our own area.

  1. Fishing industry on the west coast is already destroyed. Speaking the truth about the radioactive and dying Pacific ocean will not hurt it……it is nearly destroyed now.
    The big mistake was to ignore this story for three years, now, the radioactive poisons are here, and people are clueless on what they can do.
    Anyone with the ability to read knows we cannot eat fish any longer. Governments that lie or obfuscate only show themselves to be less credible.
    This is the most important story. Everything else doesn’t matter very much. The food chain has been irrevocably destroyed, millions will sicken and die. Safe food and water will be the #1 priority.
    I can imagine the snake oil salesmen garnering up speed right now to sell the credulous junk products that will claim to clean their water and food…….there will be more scams run than we can imagine. This greedy environment will bring out the worst in people.
    I wish I could say I see people coming together to attack this problem…..I hope they do, but I doubt it. Instead, people will seek to find a way to profit from the fear of others.
    I have a wonderful old book written by a religious elder in 1898. It talks about the future and uses scripture to foretell the end of the world. I wonder what that man would say today…….

  2. What can they do?
    There is no technology in existence to stop it. When they figure it out, they probably will change their behavior, but they will probably go mad and add to the destruction.
