Kerry issues call to save oceans: US Secretary of State John Kerry Monday sounded the alarm on the perils facing the world’s oceans, calling for a global strategy to save the planet’s life-giving seas.
“Let’s develop a plan” to combat over-fishing, climate change and pollution, Kerry urged as he opened a ground-breaking two-day conference of world leaders, scientists and industry captains. “We as human beings share nothing so completely as the ocean that covers nearly three-quarters of our planet,” the top US diplomat said, adding that “each of us shares the responsibility to protect it.
Record high radiation level found in fish : Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said caesium equivalent to 254,000 becquerels per kilogram - or 2540 times more than the government seafood limit - was detected in a "murasoi" fish. The fish, similar to rockfish, was caught at a port inside the Fukushima plant, a TEPCO spokesman said.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was battered by a towering tsunami following a huge earthquake on March 11, 2011, causing reactor meltdowns which spewed radioactive contamination into the atmosphere. Fishing around Fukushima was halted and the government banned beef, milk, mushrooms and vegetables from being produced in surrounding areas. It gets much worse!

Phytoplankton the enabler of all life: We are killing ourselves not just the oceans.
We are killing our oceans, we are killing ourselves and it is much worse then you realize. I always say "remember where life came from" we are killing the phytoplankton as you all may know by now but I for one had no idea how critical a role it played in mans life, all life, including the earth itself. Makes sense if you realize this planet and all life forms on it are all one.
This is critical but watch this video from a friend who speaks about super foods. It was sent to me with that in mind but when I heard the part about phytoplankton's I stopped in my tracks. It is a natural vitamin and mineral supplement. I was amazed but take a quick glance at this.
According David Wolfe marine phytoplankton is the number one food on the planet. Marine phytoplankton is the smallest organism on the earth. It's the bases of the entire food chain. It grows in the ocean and produces more oxygen than all the forests combined times three. It's the bases of sulfur. Whales eat it, dolphins eat it. It's food for all animals at all ages. It's a complete protein source. It contains EPA and DHA, 100% pure without contaminants. It's one of the highest mineral and anti-oxidant foods. It contains about 90 minerals. Why not go back to the bases?David says we can't kill all phytoplankton but I beg to differ as we are!
Scientists may have found the most devastating impact yet of human-caused global warming — a 40% decline in phytoplankton since 1950 linked to the rise in ocean sea surface temperatures. I happen to think it is largely due to man and our pollution though some may be natural but I doubt it. We’ve known for a while that we are poisoning the oceans and that human emissions of carbon dioxide, left unchecked, would likely have devastating consequences. We are all part of the whole.
*“Phytoplankton are a critical part of our planetary life support system. They produce half of the oxygen we breathe, draw down surface CO2 and ultimately support all of our fishes said marine biologist Boris Worm of Canada’s Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We say the ocean is critical to life but personally I had no idea how critical. I thought we were talking giving up fish for food not life itself. Somebody of consequence better wake up!
So why should it be any surprise the fish that eat the phytoplankton are radioactive? What are we doing to ourselves? With just the world wide radiation raining down on us and our food supply not to speak of the radiation spread through the pacific and the still growing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico due to millions of gallons of oil and millions of gallons of death,
I mean corex-it and the continent size garbage swirls around the world and the huge and growing dead spots around the world we are in serious trouble and we do not seem willing or able to turn this disaster around. We continue to make it worse by the day with more war not to mention that we disperse depleted uranium everywhere we use ourrockets in war. Somebody better wake up if we are to save ourselves but we will not. If something is dependent on man's management for survival it is dead and right now that very something is us.
