(NaturalNews) The mass dumping of highly radioactive water (measured at 7.5 million times the normal allowed levels) into the Pacific Ocean is not just an environmental disaster; it's also a violation of international law. The Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by Dumping of Wastes and Other Matter, passed in 1972, forbids nations and companies from dumping toxic wastes into the ocean. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convention_on_t...)

Japan, it turns out, gave the Fukushima complex special permission to release all this radiation, despite the international law. Of course, even Japan's granting of this "special permission" is, itself, a violation of that same international law. But who's keeping track, anyway?

Those managing this disaster in Japan say that releasing radiation into the ocean is their only remaining option right now. As reported in TIME, "There was no choice but to take this step to prevent (other) highly radioactive water from spreading into the sea," said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano. "The fact that radioactive water is being deliberately dumped into the sea is very regrettable and one we are very sorry about." (http://ecocentric.blogs.time.com/2011/04/05/...)

Well, I guess it's all okay if they feel sorry about it, then.

But South Korea isn't happy about it, that's for sure: They lodged an official protest with Japan yesterday, complaining about their dumping of radioactive water into the ocean (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/c...).

What South Korea realizes is something the rest of the world won't dare admit: Fukushima has become the "dirty bomb" of the Pacific, releasing huge quantities of radiation on an ongoing basis, directly into the environment with no end in sight. The global damage this could cause over the next few decades is incalculable.

Has anybody stopped to consider how Japan is going to be able to pay for all this damage? There's no question that the nation is going to have to start selling off U.S. debt holdings in the near future, and that could spell the beginning of the end of the U.S. runaway debt bubble, resulting in an inability for the United States to find any more buyers of its debt.

Uh oh, I feel a "hair cut" coming for the U.S. government, which may soon find itself begging for loans from world nations in order to keep itself alive. And that sad scenario won't last very long, either, because as soon as the American people wake up and realize their social security money has long since been looted and spent by the feds, we're likely going to see a mass of public protests that could thrust this nation into political chaos.

And to think, it all started when planet Earth shrugged off the coast of Japan. Or, you might say, Atlas Shrugged.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
