ENENews, or Energy News, was a fear mongering anti-nuclear news aggregator that was created in response to the Fukushima I nuclear accident. The site tended to have three different types of posts: posts that imply the Fukushima accident has poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean and adjacent coastlines[1][2][3] (as if a single nuclear accident could do such a thing) and that "They" are covering up the true scale of the disaster.[4][5] The site also features posts that report on any and every case of animal death and disease that occurs in the Pacific Ocean and adjacent coastlines[6][7], and posts that claim that the Fukushima reactors are seconds away from exploding again and releasing more pollution.[8][9]
