Across the vast Pacific, the mighty bluefin tuna carried radioactive contamination that leaked from Japan's crippled nuclear plant to the shores of the United States 6,000 miles away

Thank you Jill!
Quite a mess coming ashore here on the Pacific Coast, they are seeing 3 eyed fish, 4 fins, and of Course this was to be expected that all of these sea creatures would end up with all of this radiation swimming through that Spill!

Was just a matter of time, and sadly there are so many that probably don't wash ashore or get caught in nets and just end up on the bottom of the Ocean bed...So much death! Hurts my heart and typing with tears from what Mankind has done to what is so special ~ Now soon, all will be Gone, don't see any end to Mankind's Distruction of the Earth!

One small part of the story sums this issue up for me:

....... scientists did not expect the nuclear fallout to .......

Is this just another way of making the point that scientists do not fully understand the threats that nuclear radiiation actually poses? I fear it might be!

No. This just is making the point that (some) (what's called) "scientists" do manage to (pretend to) not fully understand what any child with a two-digit IQ can easily grasp; demonstrating that, as Upton Sinclair wrote, "It's difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it."

and apropos BLUEFIN TUNA:
" Our oceans are dying. They've already removed 90% of fish from the oceans amd they're continuing to exploit them, and are in fact investing in extinction. Mitsubishu has build warehouses, refrigerated warehouses, to store BLUEFIN TUNA in. The more bluefin tuna they get into their warehouses, the less are left in the ocean. The less are in the ocean, the greater the value of the commodity in their warehouses. They are literally investing in extinction, because when they wipe out the bluefin, the only bluefin left will be a 10-years supply in Mitsubishi warehouses, which they will be able to set their price on. And they'll make $ billions. These people do not care... We shouldn't be protesting, we should be intervening. "

Thanks Jill, scary as this is, it's just one of the things we know about, what about all the rest?
