When a major tsunami struck Japan in March 2011 and crippled the Fukushima nuclear reactor, the unprecedented catastrophe dumped as much as 20 million tons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean headed on a course toward the west coast of the United States and Canada.
A nuclear energy specialist with Fairewinds Energy Education, Arnie Gunderson charged that the radioactive debris field has already begun to wash up on the shores of the U.S. and Canada, contaminating farms and other food sources. He referred as well to a “debris island” twice the size of Texas approaching the Hawaiian Islands months before anticipated.
Gunderson charged that Japanese regulators and nuclear industry officials are colluding to cover up the true magnitude of the health risks to the people of Japan and as far away as the shores of the United States, in an effort to put profits over people.
We are continuing to monitor the situation as it unfolds.
