Recently, I sent a YouTube user-generated viral video about extremely high radiation readings at a San Francisco beach, taken within the past month.
For almost three years now, I’ve been sending many scary videos about the increase of miscarriages in the US, and interviews with tenured professors, suggesting that all people avoid all North American West Coast produce; that its inhabitants should evacuate and that many people North of the Equator may consider moving to the Southern Hemisphere, etc.
Today, I wish to present a more balanced view, as I’ve been assaulted by what may be either nuke industry toadies or real scientists, who are upset by the information that I have broadcast, regarding the risks associated with the unprecedented triple meltdown at Fukushima.
Here, Fairewinds Energy Education’s Arnie Gundersen discusses the risk to the US West Coast population from the
ongoing releases from Fukushima Daiichi.
Should we be worried about walking by or swimming in the Pacific? How safe are California’s beaches? What about eating Pacific seafood?
The upshot, in Arnie’s presentation is that, while all exposure to radiation is hazardous and cumulative, it’s still OK to jog along a California beach on a foggy morning and even to swim in the Pacific Ocean but he does warn us not to eat Pacific-caught fish, until a reliable system of checking the bio-accumulation of hot particles in seafood, guaranteeing its
safety has been put into place.
