The statements like “incredibly contaminated ocean waters could be reaching the West Coast of the US in a matter of only five years, and the toxicity of those waves could eventually be worse than what was seen in Japan.” are patently false.
“the level of radioactivity reaching the US will be much lower than that released by the Fukushima plant.” And that
“While this may sound alarming, these levels are still lower than those permitted for drinking water,” said Böning.”
The levels for drinking water are extremely low, far below what would cause health problems, for obvious reasons. California is far more in danger of the levels of Cesium 137 used in drilling fluids right on their shoreline than Fukushima radiation transported and diluted and decayed over 5 years.
But then again, maybe if enough of the Californians get scared enough, we could pick up some cheap oceanfront property, so here's hoping it either stops altogether or gets extreme!
