I was in conversation with someone who believes food will be, soon, rated and priced by the amount of radiation it contains.  This might be a well reasoned idea.  This is  (part of) my response:

Just some thoughts:
I don’t know how much food shopping you do, but I am at different grocers’ shoppes, at least two or three times a week.  What have I noticed, lately?
At one store, the shelves were filled with (mostly Californian;  some Western Mexican and from other South & Central American nations’) vegetables and fruits which were oddly soft.  They were not over-ripe and were not exactly spoiled.  I purchased a couple of pears from this spot.  They were filled with black-mold, and not just outside, but in strange places within (not like it had gotten in through a hole or blemish, as there were no blemishes;  like the mold had taken up residency from within the fruit.)  I saw this a year ago, in carrots;  they had rings of mold within

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/AsDc-LjJNcv-jhJobfP_yFZDrwVhPgWSIvwEjvU9ERw=w251-h188-p-no ), but these carrots were not soft.  They had no place outside of the body of the root, from which mold obviously entered.  I actually cut apart and photographed the carrots, but I did not take pictures of the pear(s).  I should have.
Beets were soft like pillows.  They did not contain rotten parts and I saw no blemishes.  Again, they were just soft (I did not purchase them because they felt so disgusting.)  From this store, too, I purchased onions that had dried skin every few layers (like the onions grew, stopped, grew some more, and did this from the outside..)  Photos of the very strange onions, which I should have videotaped:  Photo

At another store, I found a couple of perfectly round avocados.  Now, I eat a lot of avocados and have never seen one the size of and shape of a plum, but this is what they were.  I also found HUGE avocados that looked as if they had been bleached by the sun (or something?)  I did purchase these things.  And I photographed and videotaped them:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Npy4Ndk3vbY

As you can see in the video, this larger pit was nearly the size of the avocado, itself. What was there, in the way of meat, was minimal and quite oily.  I did not eat it.  I have saved the skins and i plan on grinding them up in order to take (gamma) readings from them.  I don’t know how much radiation it will show, and it may show nothing.  If the fruit are affected by alpha or beta -emitting isotopes, nothing will come out on the Geiger counter.  Still, it is worth a try and I will videotape whatever it shows, should it show anything.
Finally, I planted the weird avocado pits.  The tiny pit (smaller than a peach pit) is growing famously.  It’s already about four feet tall and is producing huge leaves.  The huge pit, from the round avocado, is doing well.  It is less than a foot tall and has very small, dainty leaves.  This small, round avocado has produced a burgundy stem and puts forth quite dark, burgundy-coloured,  leaves.  We’ll see if, in seven or eight years, it will bear fruit.  Perhaps none of them will produce anything?

In the grocery store that I shop at, most often, I am finding that much of certain species have simply disappeared.  All peaches, nectarines, plums, etc,.., are simply gone, overnight.  They have been replaced by apples, lemons, and limes.  Sure, fruit is seasonal, but, I have never seen this store with none of these items, at all. It does cause me to wonder if the peaches, plums, nectarines, etc.., became soft like the beets in the first store.  And it surely wouldn’t surprise me, given what I see everywhere else.
In other, smaller, stores, the shelves are just about bare (and I mean only the produce sections.)  Dairy cases are not stocked as we’re used to seeing them.  Butcher counters are full of two things;  poultry and beef.  There is not much else, not even pork, which seems off to me.  That’s a big seller, down here in Texas, and the last time I was in this store, I would say I saw less than  twelve pieces of pork for sale.  There were quite a few packages of bacon, however, and I think it’s because they are able to preserve it for so much longer. I do have to wonder what is happening with the pigs,.. Have they been fed the soft, pillow-like, fruits and vegies?  Is this why pork is missing?

Back to these fruits and vegetables;,  I am seeing that all produce is being affected, to one degree or another,  by this mold and by other parasites.  I’ve never seen it like this.  And, when I plant seeds from the produce I pick up at the store, my pots end up growing mold (and mushrooms), too.  I bought and cultivated some nematodes to take out the mold-mites.  But they don’t take out the mold, itself.  It seems this radiation is somehow allowing for the overgrowth of parasites and fungi, at least for now, and I don’t know when this wave of tiny creatures will end.  But, I do feel it will end.  And this will most likely coincide with the time when many species end.  It is absolutely taking place a lot faster than most people see.

Very strange things are happening within my indoor garden.  The radiation level in the soil, last time I checked, was .69 mSv/hr to 72 mSv/hr.  Is this why all of my plants seem to be growing so very oddly?  PhotoPhotoPhoto

In regard to grocery stores and my shopping habits,  I only shop the outer aisles of these stores.  Perhaps the stuff in boxes and cans is doing great?  (I don’t think so.)

And I am referring, only, to the farce of the, “Unit-Four Spent-Fuel pool OFFLOAD.  I have no idea how anyone who’s paid any attention to any part of the disaster at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant can believe the story of the offloading of Unit-Four’s pool(s) as the pool was and is nonexistant within days or even hours after the quake/ tsunami, and this pool has been gone since the building absolutely exploded. UNIT-4, FUKUSHIMA DAI’ICHI, post explosion:

21_003

The thing is, the top floors from above the fourth story,  were blown-out and removed, by Tepco, after this explosion, yet before the sham began;  ” the offload of spent-fuel rods”.

Prior to the tsunami, quake, explosion(s), and fires, too, where was the spent-fuel pool situated? That would be floors/stories/levels 8 through 10. If these upper stories went missing, and we are aware that they did, how the heck could there even BE a fuel-pool, or a pool of any sort, inside of Fukushima Daiichi unit-4? Here are a few more images which were actually posted by Tepco:

Because floors 5 through ten were removed;  and Tepco did post video of this, too,  there could no longer be a spent-fuel pool in unit four and has not been a pool in unit-four for at least four years. I am not sure how many times or in how many ways I’d have to say this to be understood.

The entire story regarding removal of fuel-rods is a load of hooey.

There just can be NO pool there. Post explosion, there are/were no floors in that building. When the, “reporters”, went into (ahem) Daiichi unit-four, they were BLINDFOLDED. Why would they be blindfolded before they arrived at Fukushima Daiichi? I’d say this is because they did not go there.  I don’t believe anyone could survive being inside of Fukushima Dai’ichi unit-4, or 3, 2, 1, and probably units 5 & 6, either. The air is full of deadly isotopes, This would mean the game played with or on these, “reporters”, is obvious. The building they did go into had nothing to do with Fukushima Daiichi unit-four.  It may not have been anywhere near the site and my best guess as to what they went into is?  I’d think it was Fukushima Daini.  But, it could have been any nuclear reactor building, as all of Japan’s sites are in cold shut-down, save Fukushima, which was put to bed HOT.

Why make up such stories about this horrific event?  The sham of the Unit-4 spent-fuel offload  was devised to distract the public from the truth of 3 full-core meltdowns (and given the temperatures reported from within reactors 5 & 6. there might have been five meltdowns) and to prevent the world from thinking about the HUGE explosion of mixed-oxide radioactive fuel from unit-four. And it gave the, “news media”, something (pffftt) positive to talk about and look forward to,.

Here, from youtube user, Hatrick Penry’s book, “Something Wicked This Way Comes”, an internal NRC email:

Based, solely on this (FOIA) release, I don’t see  how anyone ever believed the SFP-4 hoax.

A couple of weeks back, Tepco finally told the truth; Plutonium-241 (FUEL RODS) from unit-four are found IN the Pacific ocean, floating atop the water. No wonder sea-creatures are dying off, so rapidly (besides the amount of tritium that has overtaken hydrogen atoms of water, making tritiated water, which WILL suffocate the sea-animals and fish, to DEATH.)

As for the general public, they simply want to see what they want to see, and this does not mean that what theyre seeing is true or factual, And the newzzzz-folk go along with it, happy to be the repeaters of the big LIES. 01_001

Next, however, the US MSM and the Japanese government are starting the game of, “Spent-Fuel pool rod and debris removal from Fukushima Dai’ichi Unit-three”, and this photo, directly above, is Unit-3.  Can anyone point out the spent-fuel pool (or any pool, at all), and convince ME that it has fuel rods IN IT, and that these rods can be removed?  Honestly;  my (financial) offer still stands!

This is a comment from http://www.youtube.com/user/justincase.  I thought it was fantastic and should be a full blog-post.  Everyone really ought to read this and learn a bit about what is really happening at Fukushima Daiichi: On 3/25/2015, Tepco reported to NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) that 2,200,000,000,000 Bq of All β nuclide (including Strontium-90) leaked from the plant area to the plant port in the recent 314 days. The term is from 4/16/2014 to 2/23/2015. Regarding Tritium, 4,800,000,000,000 Bq leaked to the port, Tepco reported. These nuclides are contained in groundwater from the plant area. Tepco cannot complete building the underground wall to to separate the land and port because the wall would cause groundwater overflow in the plant area. These are incredibly high numbers. Now that we have this new information let’s do a little math to see where we’re at? 2.2 trillion Bq over 314 days = 7006369426.751592357 Bq /day @ 7 billion 291932059.447983015 Bq /hr @ 292 Million 81092.238735551 Bq / sec. @ 81 thousand According to TEPCO 4.8 Trillion Bq or roughly twice as much Tritium escaped into the Pacific. That’s roughly 162,000 Bq every second. Since this figure is short 51 days from a complete year that puts the grand total at: 2.557324841×10¹² Bq / yr 5.114649682×10¹² Bq /yr of Tritium using these numbers as a baseline & the common consensus that there is more radiation during the initial accident, – let’s just use these figures to be conservative. 1.022929936×10¹³ Bq of the 8 common isotopes tested 2.045859873×10¹³ Bq of Tritium as of March 11 2015 FYI: 10¹³ is 10 Trillion In other words, between what’s been released into the atmosphere & the surrounding land mass plus what’s been dumped into the ocean you could say (at least according to TEPCO) there has been roughly 30 Trillion bq of radioactive material released from Fukushima since 311 (plus 15 days) As an aside for comparison & to put this into perspective: — The Hiroshima bomb used 800 grams of plutonium. — Reactor 3 alone was mox fuel 2 million times more leathal than Chernobyl. — Each of the 4 fuel pools contained 122,000 fuel rods weighing 1.76kg ea. — A gram of strontium produces more radionuclides than all the grains of sands on every beach on earth List of radio isotopes (to name a few) released from FDNPP: Cesium-134-137 HL 30 years Tritium-HL 12 years Iodine-131 HL 8 days Uranium-233 HL 159,200 years Plutonium-240 HL 6563 years Strontium-90 HL 28 years Here’s the biggie…… Naturally occurring Tellurium-128 (respective HL) 2.2 septillion Tellurium-130 790 quintillion The standard has aways been a dose per year = 1mSv / y, 1 Rem = .01 Sieverts Radiation from the earth every hour 0.04μSv / h, Radiation from outer space is a per hour 0.03μSv / h. Any doubts as to why everything in the Pacific is dying? #wecanseeradiation

Fukushima Daiichi

Fukushima Daiichi unit-three/ reactor-building-3. Can anyone find a spent-fuel pool there?

Fukushima unit-3. Yeah, it exploded. Yet, Tepco and the MSM have put out the word that they’re going to clean up the spent-fuel pool.. Come ON!

Watch your step at Fukushima..  Who knows what building it is?  It is a mess!

Watch your step at Fukushima.. Who knows what building it is? It is a mess!

First, we’ll look at the waters off Hawaii, where this guy and his friends went out to document what they might find while on vacation.  This video was made and posted in 2014.

 I don’t know, but, what is the point of diving anymore?We’ve seen, from Mexico up into Canada, on the western coast of the USA, many creatures are crashing/ dying.

In 2011 and 2012, sardines washed ashore in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions.  People were aghast, but nobody wanted to figure out why this happened.  There was no el-nino.  There was no red-tide.  From the LA Times:  April 20, 2011|By Tony Barboza, Los Angeles Times … Last month’s massive dieoff occurred after millions of sardines swam into King Harbor and suffocated. (Now, why was this?)

2012, 2013, 2014, it was Sea-Stars:    Sciencetimes and so many other publications have reported this is a virus.  But, the only virus they found  was one that stars have lived among and with for decades.  SO, it wasn’t that;  yet, have they come up with any other ideas as to the massive deaths?  No.   This is what they have maintained (LA):   Feb 3, 2014 – Millions have died from a “starfish wasting disease” that has been afflicting the ocean … Scientists are baffled to what has caused the starfish dieoff, but they suspect it is some sort of pathogen.  *it wasn’t, but they’ll stick with that inane rumor*

Also, in 2012, began the mass die-off of those cute little sea-lions.  Each year, since then, the number of dead and dying sea-lions, washing ashore in all parts of the West Coast, has grown exponentially.  This is from NatGeo:

Mysterious Sea Lion Die-Off Strikes Again on California Coast

Feb 13, 2015 – Tiny sea lion pups are washing up on beaches in unusually high numbers—for the third winter in a row.

From, The San Jose Mercury News:

Sea lions desperate for nourishment dying off in alarming numbers …  It’s 7:30 a.m. at the Marine Mammal Center, and the sea lion pups are famished. For the past five weeks, volunteers have been desperately trying to nurse back to health more than a hundred sea lions found stranded along the state’s beaches in a mystery that’s threatening one of California’s most lovable sea creatures.

The tidal pools up in British Columbia are missing a lot of life.  It’s not just sea-stars and kelp, though they’re missing and confirmed dead, too. It’s the anemones, stars, along with all kinds of kelp and alga.  But, those anemones,  so vibrant and absolute proof of life, which every diver spent time spying and photographing, are gone.  Anyone who cares, and everyone should care, needs to go take a look at videos and photos by  Dana Durnford, aka, TheNuclearProctologist.com, aka, BeautifulGirlByDana (in youtube.com).   Not only are there very few anemones, but snails, sea-cucumbers, sea-sponges, plankton, and all of the tiny creatures from the nurseries and natural hatcheries of the ocean, have simply disappeared.  I don’t think they packed-up and left for warmer (or cooler) waters.  They have died. They are gone.  They won’t be seen again, at least not up in BC, Canada.  That’s terrible and scary, too, for the ocean provides what all animals, including man, need in order to survive on this planet.

Let’s talk sea-birds.  The Cassin Auklet is dying off in droves!  Some might think, who cares about this little bird?  Does it really matter that it may just die?  Think again..  Here, a report, from NatGeo:

Mass Death of Seabirds in Western U.S. Is ‘Unprecedented’

Jan 24, 2015 – Blue-footed diving seabirds called cassin’s auklets, including this one, have … Researchers are wondering if the dieoff might spread to other birds or even fish.

And, from SOTT:  

Pacific seabirds dying in record numbers – 100,000 auklets

Seabirds in the northwest of US and Canada are dying in their thousands, but no-one knows why.  So far, volunteers have found around eight-thousand carcasses of the blue-footed seabird called the Cassin’s Auklet along the coast from British Columbia down into northern California.  Scientists estimate as many as 100,000 auklets – most of them young – have died. The question is why .(really?)

The Brown Pelican:  La Jolla, California, seems to be one of the worst places to be a bird.  This pelican, which was removed from the, “endangered species list”, is now more endangered than ever!  So is the California banded-pigeon (no, not the usual flying-rat of the city;  they seem to be okay..;  this is their, “country cousin”)  The California blackbird (which is actually a tri-colored bird) is dying and falling out of the sky.  Why is this?  It seems these birds have been growing tumors in their beaks!  They end up not able to eat or breathe, and they die a horrible, suffocating death.

 Here’s a great map of die-offs in the US:  https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zkyG3w_e9ris.kZXuhwFuocYo&usp=sharing  This map is often updated because it has to be done.

The Snow Geese;  in the past month, the Canadian Snow Goose has been dying.  Yes, these beautiful birds are, literally, “just (falling) out of the sky..”, and again, nobody knows why!(??)  From RT.com/USA:  

2,000 dead snow geese ‘basically… just fell out of the sky’ in Idaho

Volunteers and Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) staff members spent the weekend collecting the carcasses of about 2,000 migrating snow geese that died mid-flight. Its officials believe the birds were killed by avian cholera.

“Basically, they just fell out of the sky,” IDFG spokesman Gregg Losinski told Reuters.

Snow geese breed on the tundras of Canada and Alaska during the summer, and spend the winters along both American coasts, as well as in marshes, grasslands and wet areas near ponds. These birds were migrating back to their nesting grounds in Northern Alaska from the southwestern US and Mexico, and died while stopping at Idaho’s Mud Lake and Market Lake Wildlife Management Areas, IDFG said in a statement.

(NO;  nobody has proven avian-cholera has actually killed any of these birds.  It is only a GUESS, and they won’t be coming back to that with more proof, as there won’t be any proof of this disease.)

A team of University of Idaho researchers studied geese more than a decade ago. They found that less than 5 percent of healthy wild birds were carriers of the avian cholera bacteria.

“Our results confirm the hypothesis that wild waterfowl are carriers of avian cholera and add support for the hypothesis that wild birds are a reservoir for this disease,”Michael D. Samuel, the head of the research team, said, according to the Daily Times Gazette.  (*again, this is a virus or bacteria that these birds have lived with and among for years, with no ill-effects, and surely, not dying from it.)

Let’s talk SALMON:  It’s Springtime (almost) and hatcheries are letting go their salmon into the rivers.  It is what they normally do, but the past four years have not been normal for salmon.  Salmon have been dying soon after being released into the wild.  From KCET:  

If Delta Salmon Die, They Could Take Orcas With Them

**Yeah, they’re worried about the Orca, a newcomer to the area, a mammal that really doesn’t even belong there.  But, if it gets people thinking about and looking at the huge die-offs of salmon, then, okay:

(this time, they blame it on drought..)

But there are other species threatened by our diverting water from the Sacramento Delta that don’t lend themselves so well to pro-industry PR. There are the Sacramento’s once-mighty runs of salmon, themselves the foundation of an important industry. There are prehistoric-looking sturgeons and steelhead beloved by anglers.  And there’s one Endangered species threatened by Delta diversions so popular that the last time the ag industry took it on, the nation’s animal lovers rose up in protest..  That beast?  The orca, Orcinus orca, also known as the killer whale.  No, there aren’t orcas living in the Sacramento Delta, though they have been known to visit from time to time. But the Delta is crucial to the survival of certain orcas’ main food source, the Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha). The more water we take out of the Delta, the more imperiled the Sacramento’s Chinook salmon runs become — and that’s bad news for the orcas that depend on them.

There are many sea-mammals and fish and birds that live by the sea that are dying, which  I truly don’t have the time or the space to mention, here and now.  But, scientists and marine-biologists are seemingly not talking with one another.  The fish guys don’t seem to know that the birds are falling out of the sky.  The sea-lion watchers fail to acknowledge the huge number of salmon and even sardines (huge part of the sea-lion diet) that have simply washed ashore, dead as door-knobs.  Why is this?  I would think it has everything to do with the fact that they’d have to all comprehend that something is taking out LIFE in the Pacific.  Something has the ability to cross species.  Something has the power to change the water (tritiated water is deadly!) these cretures live in and alongside…

It seems none of these scientists want to be labeled as kooks, and this means nobody wants to say, FUKUSHIMA!
