A Can’t miss Event with BPEarthwatch talking about this disaster and how to prepare if needed!
I’m posting this for a number of reasons, the first being that we would be foolish to think Fukushima an isolated event that is over and done with. The reactors continually emit radioactive material into the environment. The effects will be felt for decades, if not centuries, to come. This should concern us all, not just those living on the West Coast of the United States. Radiation is getting into our food supply. King crabs and salmon from Alaska and produce and wine from California and Washington are just a few affected foodstuffs.
It’s not just Fukushima. The effects of the BP oil spill are still unknown. Fracking is leaking harmful chemicals and gasses, including methane, into our drinking water
But no one is paying attention.
I could point fingers at the tea party GOP for their animus towards the EPA, FDA, and other consumer health and safety organizations, but that wouldn’t solve anything.
All we need are people who care enough to make some noise.
If we don’t stand up for our environment, then unemployment, civil rights, marriage equality, and the economy mean nothing. Without safe drinking water and food, we won’t last long enough to worry about voter suppression.
Cause and effect. Everything goes somewhere.
