Scientists are now concerned about another Fukushima related phenomenon that appears to be invading the U.S. West Coast - buckyballs.
Buckyballs refers to uranium-filled nano spheres which were created from the millions of tons of fresh and salt water used to try to cool down the three molten cores of Fukushima's stricken reactors.
The tiny, stout buckyballs have been formed when water hit the super-heated, primarily uranium-oxide, fuel in the damaged reactors at Fukushima. Bucky balls are formed, loaded with uranium and able to move quickly through water without disintegrating.
Worse, radiation readings in L.A. and Santa Monica during a 42-day period between December 2011 and January 2012, strongly suggest that radiation is increasing in the region including along the coast in Ventura County and readings the Environmental Protection Agency took appeared to indicate the unnatural presence of radiation.
Southern California is still getting hit by Fukushima radiation at alarmingly high levels that will inevitably increase as the main bulk of polluted Pacific Ocean water reaches North America over the next two years.
Radiation levels at both the Los Angeles and Santa Monica sites are about 5.3 times the norm. The Santa Monica site transmits radiation readings to the L.A. Basin area 24/7.
The radioactive buckyballs were hearty and potentially able to "transport uranium over long distances," being stable and consistent in the absence of peroxide.
While experts in the mainstream media debate whether any toxic levels of radiation are already bombarding the U.S. West Coast or if it is on its way, what is known is that radiation, in some forms, has already made it to American waters.
