Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. Now on to a story that ~ tragically ~ just won't go away: The Fukushima Nuclear crisis. 

Tragically, it will never go away.
Radioactive fish are now swimming in U.S. waters. Scientists have ~ for the first time - discovered Bluefin tuna that were contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear crisis in Japan last year ~ swimming off the coast of California. Radioactive cesium ten times above the normal level was found in the fish ~ though health officials say the levels are too low to be considered a health threat. 

Then again ~ no amount of radiation is good for you. 

Meanwhile ~ back at the crippled nuclear plant ~ a bulge was detected in the walls of reactor four ~ increasing fears that the structure holding tens of thousands of highly radioactive spent fuel rods is not sound. 

Should the reactor four building give way ~ it could trigger a nuclear disaster even worse than Chernobyl. 

But never fear America, you, too, have your own huge stockpiles of spent rods.
