What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they would be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be a replica of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a collapse at TEPCO's nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan.
Three nuclear reactors melted, and what happened next was the largest release of radiation to water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean.
However, the numbers may actually be much higher, as official Japanese estimates have been proven flawed by various scientists in recent years.
As if this wasn't bad enough, Fukushima continues to produce 300 tons of radioactive waste in the Pacific Ocean every day. It will continue to do so indefinitely as the source of the leak cannot be sealed as it is inaccessible to both humans and robots due to extremely high temperatures.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Fukushima has polluted the entire Pacific Ocean in just five years. This could be the worst environmental disaster in human history and it is almost mentioned by politicians, mainstream scientists, or the news.
It is interesting to note that TEPCO is a subsidiary of General Electric (also known as GE), one of the largest companies in the world, which has considerable control over numerous news corporations and politicians.
Could this explain the lack of news coverage Fukushima has received in the last five years?
There is also evidence that GE knew about the disrepair of the Fukushima reactors for decades and did nothing. This led 1,400 Japanese citizens to sue GE for its role in the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Even if we can't see the radiation itself, some parts of the western coast of North America have been feeling the effects for years. Not long after Fukushima, Canadian fish started bleeding from their gills, mouths, and eyeballs.
This "disease" has been ignored by the government and has decimated native fish populations, including North Pacific herring. Elsewhere in western Canada, independent scientists have detected a 300% increase in the level of radiation.
According to them, the amount of radiation in the Pacific Ocean is increasing every year. Why is this ignored by the mainstream media?
It could have something to do with the fact that the US and Canadian governments have banned their citizens from talking about Fukushima so that "people don't panic."
Further south in Oregon, United States, starfish began to lose legs and then completely disintegrated when radiation from Fukushima reached there in 2013. Now, they are dying in extremely high numbers, endangering the entire ocean ecosystem in that area. .
However, government officials say Fukushima is not guilty even though radiation in Oregon tuna tripled after Fukushima.
In 2014, radiation on California beaches increased by 500 percent. In response, government officials said the radiation was coming from a mysterious "unknown" source and was not a cause for concern. However, Fukushima is having a bigger impact than just the west coast of North America.
Scientists are now saying that the Pacific Ocean is already highly radioactive and is currently at least 5-10 times more radioactive than when the US government dropped numerous nuclear bombs in the Pacific during and after World War II. World War.
