Tepco – and West Coast of America – Slammed with Radiation

We’ve documented the spread of radiation from Fukushima to Tokyo for a year and a half.  See this [1], this [2], this [3], this [4], this [5] and this [6]. Unfortunately, as the following recent headlines from Ene News show, things are only getting worse:

  • Tokyo getting 5 times more [9] radioactive fallout than prefectures closer to Fukushima

And we’ve previously noted that the radiation will spread worldwide [15] (by water [16] and air [17]). For example:

A new study says that the West Coast will get slammed with radioactive cesium starting in 2015  [21]
