Japan Times: “Radiation has spiked to all-time highs” in ocean off Fukushima plant — Jiji: “Record-high radiation levels have been observed” Tepco says — Officials: “Cause of seawater spike is unknown (ENENews, May 18, 2014):

Jiji Press, May 16, 2014: Radiation Levels Hit Record Highs in Fukushima Seawater — Record-high radiation levels have been observed at five monitoring points […] TEPCO said Friday. The findings followed a recent series of record-high levels of radiation detected in groundwater at the plant […] TEPCO officials said that the cause of the rises in seawater radiation levels is unknown. […] 1,900 becquerels per liter of tritium was detected in seawater sampled Monday from a point between the water intakes for the No. 2 and No. 3 reactors at the plant, up from the previous record high of 1,400 becquerels […] At a nearby point, tritium levels rose to 1,400 becquerels from the previous record of 1,200 becquerels.

Japan Times, May 17, 2014: Record high radiation in seawater off Fukushima plant — Radiation has spiked to all-time highs at five monitoring points in waters adjacent to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power station [Tepco] said […] measurements follow similar highs detected in groundwater at the plant. Officials of Tepco […] said the cause of the seawater spike is unknown. […] at a point between the water intakes for the No. 1 and No. 2 reactors, seawater sampled Thursday was found to contain 840 becquerels of strontium-90, which causes bone cancer, and other beta ray-emitting isotopes, up from a previous record of 540 becquerels. At two monitoring sites outside the port, seawater was found Monday to contain 8.7 becquerels and 4.3 becquerels of tritium. The second site was about 3 km away.

  1. The bastards were given complete clearance from legal repercussions from the Japanese government….the government of global genocide. Nobody is allowed to sue them for any radioactive reactions…….they have been held harmless…..
    I cannot think of anything more despicable in my life. Why isn’t Japan facing charges for mass genocide? What in the hell has happened to this world that such murder can be underwritten by their own government…….these bastards would be facing plenty if I were in charge.
    Being one of the people facing annihilation because I am in CA, I am pretty enraged about it. I am facing a disease that will soon take my life, so I won’t die of radioactive poisons, but my children and their friends will…..and that angers the hell out of me.
    This is the disgusting, outrageous debacle I have seen a nation get away with in my life. Even Hitler’s people faced charges in the world court. Where are the people? Why does nobody care? What is wrong with this world? Does nobody care our food chain is destroyed? That sea life is dying as I write this, that birds who eat the fish will die, that animals who eat the birds will die from following their natural instincts? Vulture creatures won’t touch them, they can smell the difference.
    In Costa Rica, several months ago, hundreds of dead sea turtles washed ashore. Dogs, not knowing any better, raced down to the shores and ate them. They died instantly. That tells me the radioactive poisons are much higher than they admit, and I am goddamn tired of the lies.

  2. It’s now becoming obvious that they have no control over this, nor any idea what they are doing.
    Common sense tells us the concerns of a year ago about the stored rod tanks becoming perpetual dirty bombs as they react to air, plus the missing meltdowns have become an uncontrolled reality.
    Marilyn’s descriptive comments, observations, reports and fears look like the dismissed fears of Caldicott, Busby & Gunderson which were ridiculed as scaremongering, have become reality, but because they flushed it down the drain into the Pacific, it should have gone away.
    The populace of USA should charge the Obame Gov with willfull neglect, indeed a responsible environmental organisation should campaign for a class action against the Gov for negligence, but the two biggest, Greenpeace & FoE have been ‘bought & infiltrated’. If not, then why the silence over it and other matters like !Chemtrails’?
    They are obviously complicit in the cover up, and somehow connected to the principles of AGENDA 21.
    Either way, it isn’t, stopping. It is getting worse, steadily.
    Normally, after such a serious spin off from a disaster, some reporters & film crew would have reported findings for a TV documentary, but either nobody has or mainstream TV daren’t buy it because Gov won’t allow it.
    So, it must be in the ‘people’s interest’ to remain ignorant of the truth whilst it kills our world and us in the process.
    US Gov have purchased KI tablets for Gov staff. They eventually admitted it after much pressure, but instead of raising the level so Joe Ordinary can make an educated decision to try to protect his family, it all went quiet.
    We are all like innocent,trusting sheeples, being led to oblivion.

  3. I just finished speaking with an old friend who often helps me center myself….though he may not know it himself……the way the US media is keeping people blind about this subject is appalling and stupid. They cover NO information that people ought to be informed about.
    Nothing about what creatures are coming out of the oceans to die……nothing about the radiation poisons threating their grandchildren, etc. Nothing about the fact the US is no longer a world power……the US dollar is used by less than half the world as I write here……the news is stupendous, yet they say nothing.
    One channel was covering Jodi Arias, the creepy creature who stabbed her boyfriend 29 times and shot him as well……another on corporate investments……more on weather…..another on relationship. More on the ugly old bag Clinton, or idiot Jeb Bush.
    Our news and our needs will be so different by that time………neither of them will be in the arena……..that I do know.
    But, this is a time when mindfulness is essential, should not be ignored.
    If I could be like Cincinnatus, the wise man who came to Rome to run it for a year, get it right, then went home to his farm……..I would bring out the best minds from around the world and work to shut down the ongoing disaster in Japan, and find an intelligent way to solve energy needs.
    If Egyptians could build and decorate tombs, we can master solar power. There is no way there was enough oxygen to run oil lamps…..so said a wise friend who has been in the Egyptian tombs……..they found a way, so could we.
    So, why not?????

  4. To Squodgy: I see this future so clearly, it is painful to contemplate. There is a book called “final Exit” by Derek Humphry which I recommend. It gives us all the details of self deliverance.
    It is for cancer patients, but considering what we are facing, we need to be aware of what we need before the radiation gets too bad. Radiation literally cooks one from the inside out…..it is a dreadful death. I don’t have the strength to pull a trigger against my heart……I could miss, and be at the mercy of doctors for the rest of my time….no thanks.
    I strongly recommend it. If you know of a better one, please advise me. But, anyone who isn’t making plans right now are indeed the sheep being led to slaughter.
    Be safe. It isn’t something you need to do tomorrow, but you need to have the ingredients when the time comes.
    It is happening far quicker than I dreamed, and it is bad. The prehistoric creatures washing up on our shores now ought to make a Hollywood monster creator weep with shame………they are far more terrifying.
    Isn’t it ironic that we are a people who have landed men on the moon, sent probes to Mars, yet have not ever plumbed the depths of our own oceans. 50 foot squid are washing up……absolutely dreadful creatures…..and they are just the beginning of what I see coming. I have seen pictures of prehistoric creatures that Hollywood could have terrified a generation with……The ocean is a deep and wild horror film to those who avoid it’s depths…..as I have. The closest I came was a submarine ride in the Bahamas………not down in the dark depths of Hell, which I think the bottom of the ocean must be…..it is so dark, you cannot see without powerful lights taken with you.
    I recall taking a helicopter ride and landing in the Misty Fiords of Alaska. It is where I heard silence, even the gabby fool that would not stop talking shut up. We got out on the pontoons, and it was an eerie sense of absolute silence over black waters over 40,000 feet deep……nobody had ever gone to the bottom……….the black waters and eerie silence I will never forget. It was magnificent, but was one more reminder of how small we are in the scheme of things. We have fools in charge who don’t know what to do, so they do nothing……you are spot on, otherwise they would have done something by now.
    They probably have the pills for the greedy guts…..I hope they expire before they use them……….which they probably will because it is damn difficult to take one’s own life. Another day, another week………..it isn’t easy to set a time and do it, especially if you are alone.
    You make some good points. Greenpeace and all of them sold out 30 years ago…….we will find no satisfaction from them. Corporations have taken over our finest universities, and the corporate agenda is ruining the fine pursuit of true science……….It is really depressing.
    My late partner went to Cal Tech, and he often said it was tough going. I wonder if they were smart enough to avoid the corporate takeover that has swallowed much of the real science of the Stanfords, and other once fine universities. …..now terribly hurting for funds.
    I sure hope not. I never met a sane Cal Tech graduate, but never met a dumb one, either. I have met a few that ought to have been left in back rooms to do research and not have to deal with people………but, I can appreciate that.
    I hope the wonderful schools where you are living are still corporate free.
    Best,
    Marilyn
