Thank you, Cher. This news is tragic but not surprising. As Chaz B. pointed out, this is only the beginning.

(Firebagging from the left/Teabagging from the right, they all hate Obama) More fearmongering from individuals who know next to nothing about how radiation works or aftereffects. Here's an honest review of this site to instill some skepticism into you about Energy News:

Habitual Skeptoid Blog readers know I’ve done a lot of writing on the scaremongering related to Fukushima. And a primary source of many of the claims I’ve tried to debunk is a site called ENEnews. While most link farms are all over the place in terms of content, ENEnews is basically all Fukushima all the time. Of its 22 current top stories, 21 are Fukushima-related – mostly vague and scary claims attributed to “scientists” or “officials.”

Since its founding shortly after the 3/11 earthquake, it’s become a primary source for the alternative media version of events, relentlessly pushing the idea that Japan, the US, nuclear power shills and the mainstream media have conspired to keep the “truth” about Fukushima from us. ENEnews seems willing to make up or exaggerate pretty much any claim in the service making you think toxic radiation is killing the Pacific Ocean, frying the west coast and on the verge of wiping out humanity. None of which is supported by reputable science. A link to ENEnews is a link to bad science.

Sample “news” articles: “Gov’t, scientists ‘baffled’ over white spots on cows around Fukushima,” “Official detects radiation spike on California beach, now at 500% normal levels” and “Russian Experts: Fukushima pollution spreads all over Earth, clearly a large amount of fish, seaweeds, and everything in ocean has been polluted”

Thanks Victoria. The photos are gruesome. The test results don't surprise me and we will wait and see what other harm has been caused. This demonstrates the far-reaching damage that is the outcome of nuclear power when it goes wrong.

Stop risking the life of other living things since they're as precious as ours
