Poisoning Mother Earth: America's Gulf and Fukushima - by Stephen Lendman

As best we know it, the shocking truth is that preventable disasters keep proliferating life destroying contamination globally. Yet news about them is suppressed, so few people everywhere are unaware how calamitously they're being harmed.

As a result, distinguished environmental researcher, Dr. Ilya Perlingieri, now warns to stay out of rain because it's likely radioactive. So is drinking water, food and air with unknown levels because governments like America and Japan won't say. 

However, Norwegian Institute for Air Research static and dynamic maps show radiation contamination across the Northern Hemisphere with estimates of potential releases, increasing daily. Access them through the following link:

Also, Radiation Network.com gives levels across America, accessed through the following link:

Minimally, the danger is extreme and worsening as Fukushima releases are expected to continue for months, perhaps years.

Reporting what little is known about Japan, Kyodo News headlined an April 21 article, "Radioactive leaks into sea were 20,000 times above limit: TEPCO," saying:

In early April, "an estimated 5,000 terabecquerels of radioactive substances," amounting to 520 tons were released over a six-day period alone. However, leakage began on March 11 and continues daily in unreported amounts. One terabecquerel = one trillion becquerels. Already, contamination levels are disastrous.

On April 20, Natural News writer Mark Sircus headlined, "Nuclear weather worsens," saying:

Daily news reports get worse. "Today it was that robots (indicate) radiation is so hot inside (Fukushima facilities) that workers will have a hard to impossible time (being) in certain areas," perhaps for an interminable period.

Moreover, radiation levels are rising "across the board and across continents."

On Democracy Now April 19, nuclear expect Arnie Gundersen said:

Fukushima "(r)adiation is leaking every day now, both liquid into the ocean and also airborne. When you see those clouds of smoke coming out of the unit, that's not (ordinary) steam, that's radioactive steam. So, they're releasing radioactivity as an airborne, and also, probably more important right now is Unit 2. The reactor has a hole in it, and the containment has a hole in it. So they're pouring water in the top, and it's running out of the bottom. And that's what's causing all of the enormous amount of high-level radioactive waste" they can't stop.

David Rainoshek had a different view headlined, "We Are All Fukushima: An Integral Perspective on the Meanings and Promises of Disaster," accessed through the following link:
