World Oceans and Fukushima
Its been called the worst ecological disaster in human history
“Approximately 800 terabecquerels’ worth of cesium-137 (Cs-137) alone is expected to reach North America by , accounting for just 5 percent of the Cs-137 spilled into the ocean as a result of the disaster. Approximately 3,500 terabecquerels’ worth of Cs-137 have been released into the sea from the Fukushima plant since March 2011, plus an additional 1.2 to 1.5 terabecquerels that was first released into the air but later fell into the sea.”
There is one part of the tsunami that was helpful and that’s the dramatic aerial footage caught on tape for the first time, enabling researchers to better understand the science behind these mega forces. Tsunamis are so unpredictable, that before 2011 there were only eyewitness videos from the ground.
“By 2016, nearly as much radiation from the Fukushima disaster will have reached the North American West Coast as was initially scattered over Japan during the nuclear explosions, according to professor Michio Aoyama of Japan’s Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radioactivity.”
Bluefin Tuna and Other Wildlife…
“The bluefin spawn off Japan, and many migrate across the Pacific Ocean. Tissue samples taken from 15 bluefin caught in August, five months after the meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi, all contained reactor byproducts cesium-134 and cesium-137 at levels that produced radiation about 3% higher than natural background sources” “Of course, fish don’t necessarily stay still either, scientists tagged a bluefin tuna and found that it crossed between Japan and the West Coast three times in 600 days.”
“A group of research scientists from the University of Victoria made the discovery recently not long after it had also emerged that Fukushima had contaminated over a third of the world’s oceans. Seaborne Cesium 123, which is said to be the indicator of nuclear contamination from Fukushima has been detected on the West coast of the US.”
Sushi used to be my favorite food – I consider it a culinary wonder, however, I’ve come to prefer a nice superfood salad over the spicy tuna roll. Between dangerously high levels of Cesium, mercury, and bits of pollution ending up in the stomachs of most marine life, the ocean is essentially no longer safe to eat from (taking into consideration the limited species of fish that are safe). Microbeads found in cosmetics are becoming banned because they end up in the stomachs of marine life.
“Since the 1950s, more than 70 percent of the world’s fisheries have become overexploited or significantly depleted, according to researchers.” With so many species bouncing back and making a recovery from the endangered species list, we should allow the ecosystem to balance and grow for some time before continuing the same detrimental practices of over fishing. The Netflix docuseries Rotten thoroughly investigates the effect that commercial fishing has had in oceans around the world.
Sadly, after 7 years of cleaning up the leak at Fukushima, scientists and the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) are still working. The problem is preventing the nuclear reactors from overheating while properly disposing of the water used to cool them down; water becomes radioactive in the process. Right now it’s being stored in giant tanks around the nuclear plant and released into the ocean. The plan is to continue using the facility but some estimate the cleanup could take 40 years. We should all thank the courageous individuals at the epicenter who are committed to mitigating the damage and cleaning up their precious lands which are home to many farmers (video below).
Despite the situation, there’s still hope…
Take a deep breath. Imagine you’re driving with some friends on the Pacific Coast Highway on a sunny afternoon, perhaps you just finished meditating on the beach. As you’re driving along, vast hillsides periodically block your view of the ocean so you look around and notice acres and acres of this mysterious, beautiful, vibrant, green plant. After some time you wonder why this canopy of vegetation is seemingly strategically planted in what you used to remember as barren land and empty properties. What if those same plants can not only be used as food, clothing, industrial fibers, paper, medicine, and many other things, but can actually reverse the damage caused by radiation and keep us safe?!
This is not science fiction. It’s the dream of Dr. Masaru Emoto, the same genius who discovered that ice crystals will freeze in different arrangements depending on whatever vibration the water is exposed to. Symbols, music, prayers, or simply words written on the outside of a container impose an analogous energy and influence the waters symmetry; yielding a different crystal formation. This is also why I teach energy hygiene and the art of navigating the physical realm whilst remaining healthy.
Dr. Emoto explains: “Hemp has high frequency, and by it’s vibration, I think it has the effect or potentiality to purify the environment made by the radiation… I believe that the hemp fields will bring the eradication effect. The only concern is that Japanese government doesn’t show their interest or understandings. They say it is outrageous, and so we can be sometimes suppressed, So I would like to cooperate with people around the world who truly understand hemp and with people who know very well that “Hemp is nothing like that”, so we can advocate together the movement of hemp revival globally”
The science in these claims is grounded in the phenomena of Transmutation: to change from one nature, substance, form, or condition into another; transform. In alchemy it’s the supposed conversion of base metals into metals of greater value, especially into gold or silver. – Dictionary.com
Like a Himalayan salt lamp that purifies the air with electrons, Hemp planted along the California, Washington, and Oregon coasts can create a “buffer zone” to stop and literally clean incoming radiation like the Great Green Wall of Africa is helping to prevent droughts. You can think of transmutation as lighting a dark room, or making an impure water sample symmetrical by introducing a higher vibration to “heal” the atoms. We know that exercise works by accelerating the bodies metabolic and immune responses while disease thrives in stagnant and low energy individuals. So we know from our own experience how accelerating the body can increase healing. Since the Earth is a living sentient being, we should treat the infected areas with high concentrations of energy.
It’s worth clarifying that industrial Hemp and recreational Cannabis are not the same. Recreational sensimilla is strains of Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica that contain higher percentages of psychoactive and medicinal compounds. Hemp contains virtually none of these compounds (such trace amounts it’s classified differently) but is still in the cannabis family. Because cannabis was domesticated well over 12,000 years ago (especially in Japan), selective breeding methods have made it very easy to find strains of cannabis with little to no THC or CBD. This is what Dr. Emoto means when he says “Hemp is nothing like that.”
“”Cannabis was the most important substance for prehistoric people in Japan. But today many Japanese people have a very negative image of the plant,” says Takayasu. In July 1948, with the nation still under U.S. occupation, it passed the Cannabis Control Act — the law that remains the basis of anti-cannabis policy in Japan today.” I would love to see the same mass planting in Fukushima and all over the islands; slowly but surely the government is becoming more tolerant of the plant and I can see legalization in the near future.
“Nowadays, Takayasu said, there are fewer than 60 licensed cannabis farms in Japan — all of which are required to grow strains of cannabis containing minimal levels of THC.” japantimes.co.jp
If the United States converted an area of land the size of New Mexico to growing hemp for biodiesel, we could be completely energy independent within years!
Not only could the hemp grown be harvested and used, it could legitimately heal the planet. Hemp advocates have said for years “Hemp can save the world”, now that saying can be taken quite literally.
