As Tokyo Electric (TEPCO) proceeds with dumping radioactive water into the Pacific, radiation levels are being reported as higher than ever.
Radiation has spiked to all-time highs at monitoring points in waters adjacent to the Fukushima No. 1 power station in Japan, according to the plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. TEPCO officials say that they don’t know the cause of the radiation spike in the seawater.
What are we missing here? They are dumping radioactive water into the Pacific at a reported level of 100 tons a day – but don’t know why the radiation levels are spiking?
The measurements follow similar highs detected in groundwater at the plant.
Increased radiation in the waters have an effect thousands of miles away. The Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach California reports a major spike in struggling sea lions in the last month. Sea lions in large numbers are fighting to to survive. Many, including a lot of young, are washing ashore dehydrated, malnourished and on the brink of death. The Center is currently treating about 100 sea lions to stablilize their health so they can be returned to the wild. Will returning them to the wild mean putting them back into levels of radiation that threaten them again?
