California Slammed With Fukushima Radiation
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:

Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples Council Statement on Fukushima, October 31, 2013:
[...] Not heeding warnings from both Nature and the People of the Earth keeps us on the path of self destruction. This self destructive path has led to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Gulf oil spill, tar sands devastation, pipeline failures, impacts of carbon dioxide emissions and the destruction of ground water through hydraulic fracking, just to name a few. [...]
The Fukushima nuclear crisis alone is a threat to the future of humanity. Yet, our concern goes far beyond this single threat. Our concern is with the cumulative and compounding devastation that is being wrought by the actions of human beings around the world. [...]
[...] Spiritual Leaders and those that carry great responsibility for their people from both North and South America came together with the sacred fire for four days at the end of September 2013 to fulfill their sacred responsibilities. During this time it was revealed that the spirit of destruction gained its’ strength by our spiritually disconnected actions. [...]

We urge the international community, government of Japan and TEPCO to unify efforts to stabilize and re-mediate the nuclear threat posed at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. To ensure that the Japanese government and TEPCO are supported with qualified personnel and information, we urge the inclusion of today’s nuclear experts from around the world to collaborate, advise and provide technical assistance [...]
We urge all Nations and human beings around the world to work with us, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, to restore the Original Instructions and uphold the Creator’s Natural Law as a foundation for all decision making, from this point forward. Our collective future as human beings is in our hands, we must address the Fukushima nuclear crisis and all actions that may violate the Creator’s Natural Law.

R71, no that debris is unlikely to be radioactive. The problems at Fukushima developed relatively slowly after the tsunami. Also, as has been pointed out several times, the most radioactive elements are far heavier than water, and sink.
The problem comes when its ingested by organisms which then makes its way up the foodchain. But those don't follow the debris either. So your wrong either way.

I take issue with this whole fright scenario--how is Fukishima so deadly to us when California had its own nuclear meltdown, two in fact, in 1959?
Dr. Helen Caldicott is the primary alarmist in the media however, she is not even aware of what happened at Santa Susanna in Simi Valley. The whole fucking building melted into the ground!!!
She does not reference this event, ever. How can she not know about it? She's a journalist devoted to nuclear safety.
If these types of events are so deadly then everyone in California should be dead, according to the 'experts.' Instead, native-born Californians and long-term residents enjoy better health than many other states overall. How is this possible?
There is one exception to that however; the autism rates spiked first in California during the nineteen eighties. This I believe, is the smoking gun to what low level radiation really does to people.
I want to know about Santa Susanna and how that meltdown can compare and contrast to Fukishima and Chernobyl, for that matter.
Why the cover-up with Santa Susanna?

Okay, so the Santa Susanna facility had two meltdowns, one in 1959 and the other in 1964. An extreme amount of radiation was diffused through the air. The building burned. Simi Valley is about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
There has been no reports of any animal or plant deformities and no higher than normal stillbirths throughout Southern California. So far, this is very different from the reports we are surreptitiously getting from Japan. Why the difference?
Caldicott has never addressed this. Surely some have developed cancers that have never been attributed to the meltdown, but all in all, Californians enjoy better health than most of the rest of the world.
Be careful with evacuation threats.

Fukushima may not kill us all, though it will take them 40 years to get the meltdown fully contained and controlled and if another earthquake happens in that time the plant may collapse to a point where there's no containing or stopping it. The radiation even scrambles electronic devices so it's not even possible to send in robots to manipulate equipment instead of humans.
My fear is that a hurricane will take out the nuclear plant outside of Miami. If we have another Fukushima situation dumping radiation into the Atlantic, it really will be an unstoppable but inevitable slow motion apocalypse.
