Earthquakes and Tsunamis in Japan Sending Debris to America until 2018
Great Wave off Kanagawa
Scientists in geology and meteorology reported in early 2015 that the debris from the 2011 hurricane/tsunami in Japan would continue to send debris across the Pacific Ocean until 2018. As with debris already washing up on US West Coast shores, Americans will find refrigerators and other large and small items left by the ocean currents.
Information Highway also Affected by Earthquakes
For a planet well-connected by the Internet, i-Tablets, and Smartphone technologies, Earth still experiences a disturbing rash of inaccurate news reports. This includes reports from and about the Japanese Ground Zero in March 2011 and subsequent weather - and nuclear - disasters..
Example: The SNAFU that irked me most was a news report relayed by associates in Michigan to me on 3/13/11 that was 180° opposed to the report I already had in Ohio on 3/12/11.
On Saturday 3/12, the local TV broadcasts, online news, and daily papers in my state presented a photo of the Japanese nuclear power plant during a hydrogen explosion. On Sunday, I was relayed news reports from Michigan stating that scientists were being polled about the potential of an explosion, but that none had occurred. I had already seen actual photos of the mishap. So, what really happened?
Conspiracy Theorists had a macabre party over this phenomenon of differing stories and he-said, she-said, it-said. I'm very sorry about the Japanese disasters that occurred from 2011 - 2015 and am dismayed with inaccuracies reported too many times. Whom do we believe?
Japan incurs many earthquakes, including 366 of them from March 2014 - March 2015.
Strong in the Rain: Surviving Japan's Earthquake, Tsunami, and Fukushima Nuclear Disaster
The information connection around Earth is like the maturing brain's white matter that increases with age, making numerously increased logical connection, growing all the time. However, to many readers, the additional of new information is overwhelming or confusing.
In the case of Earth, someone seems to have cut connections or filled them with misfired info packets. The resulting turmoil could serve as a distraction if a hidden agenda were planned for application. Thus, conspiracy theorists are validated in wondering about the actual facts of famous disasters like Roswell 1947, the JFK assassination, and a load of others.
This all recalls the conspiracy theories of the Cold War that told us the worldwide UFO phenomenon was a political ploy applied to distract nations and cover government actions best kept secret from the public in America.
Related current theories hold that Climate Change is the same type of ploy; but ice caps really are melting and the water is not all evaporating - it's dumping itself on the USA, at least, as continuing snow, flooding rains, and their aftermath every winter.
Additional conspiracies may sprout in the public mind amidst the mis-reporting of information by the media about Japan in the future. Renewed alarm flowed across Facebook about solar flares, sunspot activity, the numerological meaning of the date 11-11-11, the notion of the world's end in 2012, radioactive material flinging itself from Japan to the US, and several other ideas. Interestingly, the predicted power black out at the 2012 London Summer Olympics hit Ohio instead - wrong place, but it did occur.
All this could be a matter of media opponents attempting to get their news stories on the air first; so, they go with partial or incorrect information.

How "Bad" Was the 2011 Earthquake?
Within about 12 hours, I heard several differing Richter Scale values placed on the Japanese earthquake of 2011: 4.9, 7.2, 7.9, and 8.8, and 8.9. I think the highest number may be correct.
The AP reported an aftershock of 6.2 on Monday March 14. The nuclear plant at Fukushima Dai-ichi is in danger of meltdown as of Monday as well.
Readers and viewers are/were confused by differing reports and subsequent corrections in the news, even by the respected Associated Press (AP).
The death toll is not completed yet, but at least 2,000 human bodies (dead) washed up onto the coastline of Miyagi Prefecture on Monday morning, March 14, after the Friday seismic event. One total eventually reached over 15,880 deaths (related earthquake list below, accurate as of October 2013).
This is the northeast coastline of Japan and it is cold. I watched footage of tsunami flooding with its water and black sludge icing fields of crops like it was frosting a German chocolate cake. The sea took the people's food away. Fortunately, as soon as news of the quake and tsunami reached the Midwest, the Endtime Joseph Feed the Hungry Program out of Indiana and Ohio packed a large ship full of food and sent it over. Other groups and organizations also responded.
Clean up and reconstruction will take years to complete. We have seen that already in New Orleans after Katrina (autumn 2005) and more recently in Haiti.
