A grassroots movement of Americans using reports leaking out of Japan, the internet and critical thinking skills have become more than jittery awaiting truth from government about the risk of radioactive material drifting over the United States from Fukushima. Some are now demanding their human right to know and to live as the first amounts of nuclear fallout have reached California and even mid-west states, now 10 times the level of east coast states.
A radiation map on the U.S. Environmental Protection Service showing radiation levels at measuring stations across the United States indicates “a disturbing pattern showing gamma radiation levels along the West Coast, Alaska and Hawaii at two to ten times levels on the East Coast, with midwest states in mid-ranges.” (See: GAMMA RADIATION LEVELS ON WEST COAST 2 T0 10 TIMES LEVELS ON EAST COAST – GOOGLE CACHE OF THE STORY THAT WAS DELETED, East County Magazine, March 18, 2011, posted on What Really Happened)
CTV News in British Columbia reports on existing indications that meltdowns have occurred and the Japanese government admits the Fukushima nuclear ‘crisis’ has reached Level 5 indicating “wider consequences.”
“In fact, CTV’s Tom Walters reported that the change in rating on the INES scale is ‘a recognition and acknowledgement that there have been meltdowns — or partial meltdowns — occurring in one or more of these reactors,'” reports CTV News.
Japanese officials have now acknowledged that the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe is “more severe than initially believed,” according to CTV.
Prime Minister Naoto Kan told reporters Friday that “the situation is ‘very grave’ at the power plant where several reactors remain at risk of melting down.”
Kan claims that everything has been disclosed to the Japanese public.
“We have shared what we know with the international community and I would like to stress that point,” according to an English language translation of his remarks on NHK reported by CTV.
People in Japan think otherwise. In desperation for truth, one man in Japan posted a video showing what Japanese TV is reporting: happy faces, game shows and business as usual.

Many Japanese remain concerned about what they are being told about the nuclear crisis, wondering if they are getting the full picture.
Yaeko Sato, 57, told an Associated Press reporter that she is tired of not knowing what is going on.
‘All we hear are rumours,’ she said.
Radiation was predicted to reach the U.S. west coast today. CNN reports that “a radiation monitor in Sacramento, California has detected a minuscule amount of radioactive material from Japan according to executive director of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization.”
“We do not expect to see harmful levels of radiation,” he said.
On his program on Wednesday, in defense of truth, Michael Rivero of What Really Happened, expressed frustration that other progressive Americans are feeling. He demanded truth by the U.S. government.
President Obama and government agencies such as the EPA are advising Americans that there is no reason for concern about radioactive fallout reaching the Inited States but these same officials claim Gulf seafood, water, air and land are safe, a claim proven false by independent scientists and doctors.
