California Is Dumping Radioactive Waste Into The Pacific

While forcing new “climate change” policies on the slave class and making them pay for the ineffective (and fraudulent) green initiative in California, the rulers are dumping what is likely radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean. Even the Los Angeles Times indicated that pollution in the Pacific Ocean off the California coast could be even more dangerous than originally thought.

Using a deep-sea robot, UC Santa Barbara scientists discovered an eerie graveyard of leaking barrels in 2020, spread out on the seafloor near Santa Catalina Island. DDT, a powerful pesticide that was banned 50 years ago, was found in high concentrations near the barrels, leading scientists to suspect they were full of it. (Scientists later discovered that companies didn’t even bother putting DDT in barrels — they dumped it directly into the sea.) –Los Angeles Times

DDT or Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, is a colorless, tasteless, and almost odorless crystalline chemical compound, an organochloride. It was originally developed as an insecticide, but it’s now known as a toxic substance to humans and animals. Disturbingly enough, that is not the only thing California is dumping into the Pacific Ocean.

Records show that from the 1940s through the 1960s, it was not uncommon for local hospitals, labs, and other industrial operations to dispose of barrels of tritium, carbon-14, and other low-level radioactive waste at sea.

The company tasked with pouring the DDT waste off the Los Angeles coast had also dumped low-level radioactive waste. The radioactive waste sitting down there is unequivocally terrible, but the “concerning concentrations” of DDT in the deep ocean are worse said UC Santa Barbara’s David Valentine. His research team published their findings in Environmental Science & Technology.

Unfortunately, researchers have found high levels of DDT across an area of seafloor larger than the entire city of San Francisco, according to the new study. What this could mean for human and marine life is still unknown.

For 35 years, the nation’s largest manufacturer of DDT was based in Los Angeles and as many as half a million barrels of DDT waste have not been accounted for, based on historical records and undigitized research reviewed by The Los Angeles Times.

The Montrose Chemical Corporation in Torrance produced massive amounts of the chemical between the end of the Second World War through 1982. Since they were likely making this for the ruling class to continue a massive and global war, it stands to reason that the masters had tasked the company with the disposal of DDT and other radioactive waste and “looked the other way” while it was dumped into the ocean.
