Would you like some radiation with your fish dinner?

FACTS:
1) Fukushima was a disaster that spewed, and continues to spew, tons and tons of highly radioactive waste into the ocean.
2) Various species of fish, like salmon for example, migrate northward along the west coast of the USA, up past Alaska, westward along the Aleutian Islands, and south down to Japan and a little south, swimming through highly radioactive water and eating as they go. Then they turn northward and turn eastward back to the USA where they are caught and marketed.
3) In 2015 the Fukushima radiation plume completed the journey across the Pacific and arrived at our West Coast.
4) Radioactive isotopes from Fukushima were soon found in kelp and shellfish on our west coast.

Do you really think these fish are safe to eat? Do you really think you won't consume radioactive particles when you eat them?

And Ohio just made it mandatory to fund the disaster of a nuclear power plant they have.

Dont you just love the invisible hand of the free market?

Nuclear power must be abandoned. Since it's all about money, the designs they use are all low-cost, and then they cut corners. They end up with a risky facility and to keep it cool, they have to locate it next to WATER that will most effectively distribute radioactive waste, leakage, or accidents over a wide area. Nuclear power requires a perfect record with no accidents, but humans are not perfect and are given to accidents. But in this case you can add in greed that motivates humans to take chances.

I love grilled Atlantic Salmon with lemon!

Would the Atlantic Salmon also have some degree of radiation contamination?
There are concerns about Chernobyl and Three Mile Island radiation. I try to limit myself to non-migrating fish from the southeast or farther from those disasters. The Gulf Stream Current sweeps northward, which should carry any radiation farther away.

Do the Pacific Salmon get tested for contamination?
Oh sure! The local newspaper did a story on it a few years ago. First, realize how huge the fishing industry is and how much it contributes to our Oregon economy.

Well, the newspaper commissioned a study of SEA WATER. They said the radiation was found to be no different from background radiation. IOW, the water wasn't contributing any additional radiation to the reading. BUT WHO SERVES SEA WATER AT DINNER?????

The issue is that shrimp, shellfish, and crabs concentrate any radioactive isotopes that they may consume. And they were not in the study, of course. But another independent scientific study did find and report elevated radiation in kelp, and because it was cesium they could positively identify it having come from Fukushima.

Still, any reports that are published on radiation found in seafood say the level is very low and safe. Oh really? They don't consider this however.... background radiation originates from the environment, passes THROUGH the body, and is gone. But radioactive isotopes in seafood, however few and weak, lodge in cells from where they emit constant radiation affecting the same nearby cells constantly. If you know radiation treatment methods for cancers, you know they program the source to move around the patient while aimed at the one point within where the tumor is located. Thus the radiation is concentrated only on the tumor. It's the reverse of the result of having a radioactive isotope fixed within a cell and irradiating the same surrounding cells continually, but the result is similar. The radiation is concentrated in one spot.

So the seawater study was only intended to pacify gullible people and save an industry.

More free market stories.... Here in Oregon we HAD the Trojan nuclear power plant. When it was built the contract with the state said that any and all decommissioning costs would be borne by the power company, PGE, and not get passed on to ratepayers. Well, problems in the construction showed up some years later and the plant was required to close. PGE set about to decommission it, but pretty soon they found that other "unrelated" events and conditions necessitated one increase in power rates after another. The government investigated and eventually let PGE increase rates each time. So the ratepayer ended up paying for decommissioning. I'm in another community now served by a PUD and rates of about 7.5¢ per kWh while PGE rates down the road are at about 13¢ or more. When I moved here and learned of the low rates, I called the PUD one day and I asked how they are able to keep rates so low. The lady on the phone said "we don't have any nuclear power plants to decommission".

Shit people are radiating their food all the time! And no I have never owned one, and have avoided using them to the point of eating things that are precooked, cold!

[Verse 1]
Reflex in the sky
Warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you better hide
From the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky
Turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay
Radiation, minds decay


[Verse 2]
Robot minds of robot slaves
Lead them to atomic graves
Plastic flowers, melting sun
Fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation
Victims of mad frustration
Burning globe of obscene fire
Like electric funeral pyre

[Bridge]
Buildings crashing down
To earth’s cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood
Ice melt into blood

Earth lies in deathbed
Clouds cry for the dead
Terrifying rain
Is a burning pain

(Electric Funeral)
(Electric Funeral)
(Electric Funeral)
(Electric Funeral)

[Verse 3]
And so, in the sky
Shines the electric eye
Supernatural king
Takes Earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings
Hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to Hell
Ever trapped in burning cells


[Instrumental Outro]
