National Geographic is Catching On -- Fukushima is Killing the Pacific

Nat Geo has a comment section, please use it.   Spread truth.


In the storm debris littering a Washington State shoreline, Bonnie Wood saw something grisly: the mangled bodies of dozens of scraggly young seabirds.
Walking half a mile along the beach at Twin Harbors State Park on Wednesday, Wood spotted more than 130 carcasses of juvenile Cassin's auklets—the blue-footed, palm-size victims of what is becoming one of the largest mass die-offs of seabirds ever recorded.
"It was so distressing," recalled Wood, a volunteer who patrols Pacific Northwest beaches looking for dead or stranded birds. "They were just everywhere. Every ten yards we'd find another ten bodies of these sweet little things."
Cassin's auklets are tiny diving seabirds that look like puffballs. They feed on animal plankton and build their nests by burrowing in the dirt on offshore islands. Their total population, from the Baja Peninsula to Alaska's Aleutian Islands, is estimated at somewhere between 1 million and 3.5 million.

And this is not the only species going down, there are mass die offs across the board.   The species withe first access to the lower life forms that bio-accumulate radio-toxins are the more quickly affected.

  1. Dear NukePro,
    I just wanted you to know that I have contacted PBS to request a documentary on this desperate subject. I gave them your address and also the address of Nuclear Proctologist, also the address of this NG article. I HOPE they will "DO THE RIGHT THING' in bringing this awareness to the public and for leader/media accountability. Thank you for all your efforts, time, and professional documentations.
