Homer’s Odyssey is a fable 3000 years old, first recited when civilization was of middling age, that is, well – or not so well – underway, neither young nor terminal. As Homer put it, via W.H. D. Rouse’s translation, “This is the story of a man, one who was never at a loss.” And “he endured many troubles and hardships in his struggle to save his own life and to bring his men back safe to their homes. He did his best, but he could not save his companions. For they perished by their own madness. . . . “

. . . Dana Durnford’s odyssey, in 2014 and 2015, not a fable, has been to document what has happened and is happening since Fukushima to wild life, plant and animal, in the waters and tidal zone and pools on the West Coast of Canada. His boat is a little Zodiac water craft, almost impossible to sink, but no comfort inn. He has sailed it largely alone, with his intrepid old dog Zoey, for months and for many hundreds of kilometers along the shores of British Columbia and its islands and out to the Queen Charlotte Islands.

Resourceful and brave and determined is Dana, as he struggles and endures many troubles and hardships. For an able bodied person to undertake what Dana has done would be heroic. Dana is physically handicapped from an accident and relies on a wheelchair and crutches.

Dana has taken many thousands of photographs, and has been interviewed weekly many times by Jeff Rense on his radio show at Rense.com. These are archived at Rense.com

Dana also reports via his website nuclearproctologist.org. . . . (more)
