BERKELEY (KCBS) – Scientists studying the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster, following the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan, are now looking at kelp along the west coast, to gauge whether trace amounts of radiation released into the Pacific Ocean can be detected three years later.
“Kelp Watch 2014” is a scientific campaign launched by UC Berkeley Department of Nuclear Engineering Professors Kai Vetter and Keenan Thomas, who joined forces with Professor Steven Manley from California State University, Long Beach.

“What is predicted, according to some scientific models, is that the Pacific Ocean current transported some of the radioactivity, which was released about three years ago. There is quite a dilution-effect in the ocean, which means the amount of radioactivity released in Fukushima was highly diluted,” Vetter said. “Never the less, we expect small amounts of radiation to be detectable on the west coast.”
“The amount of radiation we have observed from Fukushima right after the event were not really any concern for our health or any biology or any organisms here on the west coast,” he said. “The amount of radiation we observed was always really small and it did not really pose any health risk. And the activity that we expect through the ocean current will be even less.”

Why do I consider this considered drivel?
My response (which didn't make the comment section)

After all of the reports that state otherwise?
Continued 3 melt-THOUGH reactors missing spewing 24/7/365?
Did you write this drivel to entertain yourselves?

This borders on Criminal negligent reporting.

Maybe this is why:

"CBS is owned by Westinghouse (the company which sold the nuclear fuel to TEPCO). CEO Frank Carlucci (of the Carlyle Group) 
GE which owns NBC, is the company that designed & built those shitty reactors.

ABC owned by Disney...has the world's largest theme park in the shadow of the disaster." (AC Comment)

Who owns the Report Station?

GE and WestingHouse
