Back in March of 2011, a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan experienced a catastrophic meltdown. The meltdown caused an endless amount of radiation to be released which caused the plant to build up an immense amount of heat. In order to cool the meltdown, they had to continuously flood it with water to avoid further catastrophe. But what happens to that water? It needs to go somewhere! Well the only place that they can put it is back into the ocean. But this is truly detrimental to our water supply. That exposure to high radioactivity has caused the water itself to become radioactive. The map above shows the radiation levels of the water only ONE YEAR after the incident.
Experts predicted that the radioactivity from Japan would reach our waters by early 2014. And here we are! And the evidence truly suggests that they were right! Water samples from the coast of San Diego, California, showed that radiation in that water was 1400% higher than normal. Fish caught off the western coast of America were shown to have 124 times the radioactive level that is considered safe for human consumption. This kind of radioactive pollution can be extremely detrimental to human health.
The United States government has given little attention to the situation. A propaganda video made by the Discovery Channel even tries to inform people that there is nothing to worry about and that it isn’t affecting us, even though the evidence suggests otherwise.
