If there is any danger to that, which the state and local media has completely downplayed, I would be surprised. They have been monitoring water for traces of nuclear waste etc since the tsunami hit. All the levels read at a dead 0 basically. From universities and the government alike. The path is central to Nor Cal, but the japanese current pulls way south, very deep offshore. If none of the pacific trash and all the other junk in the pacific never make it to shore, I dont see why the debris would. a few thousand miles in a salt water bath and I would assume anything that didnt breakdown into nothing wasnt radioactive anyway....
maybe thats just wishfull thinking on my part, but scripps and noaa have been all over it, discrediting that. I would like to see the show you watched though. I am sure they had solid data from someone.
Thank god the water around here is clean, because the air sure isn't. Fukishima is a worse disaster than Chernobyl. It is rumored that reactor number four has completely collapsed and no one is reporting it. They are still melting down and have no way of stopping it.

Just made me think of this. dunno why...
I'm sure NJ can get quite dirty, but I bet Newport River Jetties takes the cake after a rain!!
Imperial Beach, San Diego....next to the Mexican border. By far the filthiest water I have ever seen or smelled in America. There are a few Baja beaches where the sewage empties directly into the breaks, and makes IB water pristine in comparison (Baja Malibu and Canneries, to name a couple). I've surfed RJ's many times and yes, it gets bad. But not IB or Mexico bad.
They should send a littering ticket to Japan, if they can give $29 million to the whaling fleet why not? yes the Tsunami was horrible but giving that money to them is worse and would be breaking laws in most countries.
IB gets a bad wrap. Its not all that bad. Neither is Baja Malibu... You have to avoid rainfall and certain times of year, just like anywhere in the world. IB fires all winter long and the heavy currents move poopoo south to Mex.... Its really just the big eave breaks at the TJ rivermouth that are contaminated, not IB itself... IB goes off..... Baja Malibu has a tainted scent, and isnt all that clean, but 350 days of the year, its fine.... Poop in TJ stands still unless its 72 hours post rainfall.... You just have to know when to go.... Everything North of IB is plenty clean unless the cities release sewage treatment in emergency situations.... Northern Baja is really clean. It gets such a bad wrap because of one or two places... better waves though than 99% of the US breaks. .... so it is what it is.
