Mainstream media continues to ignore the possibility that radiation from Fukushima building up in the Pacific Ocean for four years could be what is killing whales in unprecedented numbers.

“Alaskan researchers report that at least nine fin whales have been found dead in the water in recent weeks. It’s rare for more than one such death to be discovered every year or so, they say, and they’re exhaustively searching for a possible cause. It’s possible that warming ocean temperatures could be partially to blame.” Washington Post (June 2015)

“In only one week, the corpses of four humpback whales have been found along Canada’s west coast, fueling questions of whether their deaths are connected to a recent uptick of whale and other marine animal deaths in Alaskan waters. So far scientists don’t know what’s causing the deaths, but some believe they could be connected to warmer than average ocean temperatures that have caused unusual and potentially poisonous algae blooms.” Vice (August 2015)

Most mainstream media has ignored Fukushima for years, downplaying the severity and failing to report on the ongoing problems, such as:

Radioactive isotope Strontium-90 spikes at Fukushima; highest reading ever(July 2015)

These recent whale deaths are continuing a trend. Back in April we reported: Fukushima Fallout? Emergency closure of fishery along entire West Coast – “Catastrophic crash… Population decimated”
