Default Marshall Islands Warning Contaminated

Marshall Islands Contaminated



If you are intending to cruise the pacific Islands this is worth taking on board.



Christmas Island was used by the British and is now a processing Island for Boat people smugglers near Indonesia.

With the Interest on safety. Safe Boating.





The US nuclear test at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands was 1000 times larger than the bombs that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.


"More than 60 years on, the fallout, literal and moral, from the test has not been cleaned up.

Two generations of birth defects and cancers, notably thyroid cancers and leukaemia, have ravaged the atolls' population, and women have given birth to babies that looked like bunches of grapes or jellyfish."

"Speaking from his base in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he says the documents constitute "black and white" evidence of what has long been alleged and suspected - that the contamination of the Marshalls atolls, far from being an unhappy accident, was a premeditated, minutely planned and cynically executed experiment to establish the long-term effects of radiation poisoning on humans."

"Getting the story told and in the public view is hard," Horowitz says. "But it is an important story. There were thousands of Americans murdered by radiation experiments, and the Marshall Islands story is one of a list of deliberate exposures of people that were done during the Cold War."

The American Pacific tests ended a full 5 years before the Poms stopped live atmospheric atomic bomb tests on the Australian mainland at Maralinga in South Australia. The biggest Pom-bomb was 27 kilotons (Hiroshima was 16kilotons), not nearly in the same order of magnitude as the 'Merkins set off in the Pacific, but Maralinga remains a dangerous place to be. Little regard was paid by those who detonated the bombs, to either the servicemen and women who were associated with the testing, or to the tragic consequences which have plagued the local Aboriginal population since the testing.

Thanks that's bad to know as well.

Can you paste a large map, all Australia, showing where Maralinga Australia is located.
