Island Of Debris From 2011 Japan Tsunami The Size Of TEXAS Is Heading Straight For The West Coast Of US

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 5:40
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Slowly but surely: The Texas-sized trash island is floating to the northeast of Hawaii after over two years of sailing across the Pacific

While the first documented debris from the tragedy has already been found in California, scientists fear these new findings mean there could be a lot more to come and it might arrive all at once.

The NOAA released their updated findings last week, which show the huge island floating northeast of the Hawaiian Islands.

Scientists at the agency can’t say for sure when the debris field, which outside the dense island is scattered from Alaska to the Philippines, will reach the U.S.

Thats alot of junk all at once and its probably radioactive so needless to say, this is going to be a disaster. So sad and disturbing that we do these kinds of things to ourselves. My son when he is older will still be hearing about Fukushima when he watches the news everyday probably.  What kind of legacy is that to leave to future generations?  To me that says, ‘they f*cked up really bad and now your going to have to fix it’. The same goes with the economy.  Of course by ‘they’ I don’t mean you and me, I mean the 1%.  Look out California and Cascadia.  :  -Mort

    Has this been confirmed? Seen nothing from the EPA, California Governor, or the President.

    Has NOAA or anyone else tested the debris field for toxic waste?

      Toxic waste, radiation ..”…this is not good for the coastline i mean if a pile of junk that large……. :eek:

      Why would you expect confirmation on this? We haven’t received confirmation on ANYTHING related to 3-11. They will not inform the public so as to take advantage of the situation when the timing suits their purposes. Widespread panic ending in martial law. Cynicism at an astronomical level.

      You really think the any of these people are going to report this?
      We are the last to know and always when it is too late to do anything
      about it.

    The surface of the Pacific is beautiful & pleasing to the senses but underneath…she is sick. (radiated)

  • capoprimo

    Why hasn’t anyone bothered to do an areial photo or two to show the magnitude of this disaster. I’m not trying to debunk this, but if it’s there, wouldnt a photo illustrate this issue more clearly?

  • Agent Orange

    The Orions will have been tasked with monitoring this mass of material as soon as it was identified. How many container ships are passing through the debris fileds and making reports to their respective headquarters? I just cannot imagine the Pacific countries not being aware. Even small island nations like Fiji, will be making an effort to track the debris. And what about the fishing factories? They will want to know how to prevent damaging their lines and nets by avoiding the debris?

  • truthuncovered

    Who cares? It is California. They are bankrupt. They are felons harbor federal fugitives. they are not following the laws of our land. They should have their electoral taken and their vote canceled. Why do the most invaded areas of our nation have the most electoral votes? That is not honoring the Natural United States Citizen. It is defeating him

      I happen to live in California and while I hate all the evil in this state,I will remian here until God tells me to leave.
      Not every Californian is Democratic and what is bad for this state is bad for the nation.Radiation doesn’t respect man made borders.

  • shock an awe

    Of course no government body will advise you, they probably want to sell their houses before they are worthless, As they are saying to each other dont panic the people we need their tax dollars.

      I wonder if Mr. Gates is thinking of putting his mansion up for sale. :lol:
