For the last several months I have been monitoring the World's news networks for stories about the nuclear meltdown (now referred to as a "melt through") at Fukushima's Daiichi Nuclear Reactor. Because, uncontrolled radiation leaking from the damaged nuclear reactor could potentially destroy all life on the planet, it is in my opinion the biggest news event in human history.

Scouring the web-pages of CNN, MSNBC, Reuters, and the Associated Press, I haven't found much about this global crisis. Instead of finding many stories covering the nuclear disaster, I have mostly been finding stories about the British "royal baby", whistle-blowers like Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden or Julian Assange, and the drug habits of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan. In fact, it has been difficult to find any stories about what is going on at Fukushima's Daiichi Reactor site--it appears that the only news networks that consider the story newsworthy are the UK's BBC news network, Al Jazeera (now only available in the U.S. as Al Jazeera America), and the only network to keep the story in it headlines, Russia Today, which has actually put a link on their front page for FUKUSHIMA LEAK--LIVE UPDATES.

Willful Ignorance?
After posting dozens of articles on my Facebook page, it became obvious to me that people just don't want to talk about what is likely to be the biggest disaster in human history. In fact, even my "activist" friends, the ones who are always calling for action against Monsanto and GMO foods, etc., didn't seem to have anything to say...no "Likes" or "Shares" for my posts about the unfolding story of the poisoning of our planet's oceans. In fact, it looks to me like my attempts to  make people aware of the disaster only makes them angry. Like ostriches with their heads in the sand, they appear to be in willful ignorance to the danger that is rapidly creeping its way across the Pacific Ocean and evaporating into our atmosphere.

Closing our eyes to the situation in Fukushima won't make the problem go away. Pretending it isn't happening won't make us safe from the radiation which is now spreading across our oceans and into our atmosphere. No amount of chocolate-chip happy, positive thinking is going to stop the poisonous radioactivity that is threatening all life on Earth.

In the meantime, we (the United States) still have troops deployed all over the world, fighting useless battles for oil when they should be trying to prevent the oncoming nuclear winter. Let's concentrate all of our national energy on dealing with this situation before it is too late.

What can you do?
I strongly urge everyone of who reads this to contact your representatives in congress by phone or by mail and demand that our federal government ends all overseas operations immediately and starts addressing this global catastrophe.

I write you to request that you initiate action in congress to respond to the global disaster at Fukushima's leaking Daiichi nuclear power plant. The radiation leaking into the Pacific Ocean is a threat to all life on the planet. Our federal government is wasting billions of dollars fighting senseless wars overseas while we should instead be doing something to prevent the contamination of our global food supply. Thank you for your attention to this problem.


  1. I sent a Letter to Mark Pocan who is my
    State Rep. Its a very scary thing to think about and I think that is why people do not know what to say. Thank You David for being unafraid to make this known.
