In the RT.com article “Officials reject concerns over 500 percent radiation increase on California beach,” Dean Peterson, county environmental health director, is quoted as saying, “It’s not something that we feel is an immediate public health concern” and “We’re not even close to the point of saying that any of this is from Fukushima,” in regard to these crazy radiation spikes off the coast of California.
A) Saying it isn’t an immediate public health concern is *NOT* saying it isn’t a health concern, B) who cares about what they feel, I don’t feel like I trust that guy, and C) they never will be close to saying that any radiation anywhere is from Fukushima because they will never say it, period.
After all, we have officials who will raise the allowable radiation limits and shut off radiation meters before they will ever admit there’s a risk from something they obviously don’t know how to fix (or don’t want to even really try to fix) and ultimately cannot control.
The bottom line? “Move along here people, there will never be anything to see here…”
