    Hurricane “Sandy” planned for in 1997

    It turns out that the very same super storm now pounding the east coast was planned for in 1997, even given the same name. Most of what is stated in the 1997 simulation has turned out to be nearly 100% accurate. This is too odd to be coincidence, don’t you think?

    Check out the report below:

    The Hurricane Simulation

    Westchester County Communications Officer Sandy Fried, an Amateur Radio operator and ODES staff member, had recently attended a training seminar at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Part of the training was a simulation using data from the Hurricane of 1938 that caused major losses on Long Island and in Westchester. The texts of the simulated bulletins, forecasts, discussions and strike probabilities along with the hurricane’s track were sent home with the seminar attendees. We named the simulated hurricane after Sandy, who incidentally was nine years old during the real Hurricane of 1938.

    These texts were used as the drill stimulus. They were time-shifted to simulate land-fall around 6pm on Saturday, October 4th. Working backward from this time, we used these texts to generate and automatically update a World Wide Web status page (http://www.weca.org/SET) and send email to the Westchester ARES/RACES email reflector and fax to the County Emergency Operations center at the times that the National Weather Service would normally have sent them.

    Major Fish Kill Reported On Texas Coast

    Source: KWTX

    GALVESTON (August 13, 2012)–Hundreds of thousands of dead fish have washed up on the beach in Galveston, where crews went to work Monday to remove the dead fish.

    Peter Davis of the Galveston Island Beach Patrol said Sunday the small shad fish likely were killed by low oxygen levels in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Davis estimated hundreds of thousands of fish have died.

    Galveston County health officials said the water is fine for beachgoers.

    Biologist Steven Mitchell with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said calm conditions and summer heat may have contributed to the fish kill.

    He said there’s a possibility of a dead zone in the water off Galveston.

    Testing is expected this week.

    12 things the mainstream media is strangely quiet about right now

    As the mainstream media continues to be obsessed with Anthony Weiner and his bizarre adventures on Twitter, much more serious events are happening around the world that are getting very little attention.  In America today, if the mainstream media does not cover something it is almost as if it never happened. Right now, the worst nuclear disaster in human history continues to unfold in Japan , U.S. nuclear facilities are being threatened by flood waters, the U.S. military is bombing Yemen, gigantic cracks in the earth are appearing all over the globe and the largest wildfire in Arizona history is causing immense devastation.  But Anthony Weiner, Bristol Palin and Miss USA are what the mainstream media want to tell us about and most Americans are buying it.

    In times like these, it is more important than ever to think for ourselves.  The corporate-owned mainstream media is not interested in looking out for us.  Rather, they are going to tell us whatever fits with the agenda that their owners are pushing.

    That is why more Americans than ever are turning to the alternative media.  Americans are hungry for the truth, and they know that the amount of truth that they get from the mainstream media continues to decline.

    The following are 12 things that the mainstream media is being strangely quiet about right now….

    #1 The crisis at the Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in Nebraska has received almost no attention in the national mainstream media.

    Back on June 7th, there was a fire at Fort Calhoun.  The official story is that the fire was in an electrical switchgear room at the plant.  The facility lost power to a pump that cools the spent fuel pool for approximately 90 minutes.  According to the Omaha Public Power District, the fire was quickly extinguished and no radioactive material was released.

    The following sequence of events is directly from the Omaha Public Power District website….

    • There was no such imminent danger with the Fort Calhoun Station spent-fuel pool.
    • Due to a fire in an electrical switchgear room at FCS on the morning of June 7, the plant temporarily lost power to a pump that cools the spent-fuel pool.
    • The fire-suppression system in that switchgear room operated as designed, extinguishing the fire quickly.
    • FCS plant operators switched the spent-fuel pool cooling system to an installed backup pump about 90 minutes after the loss of power.
    • During the interruption of cooling, temperature of the pool increased a few degrees, but the pool was never in danger of boiling.
    • Due to this situation, FCS declared an Alert at about 9:40 a.m. on June 7.
    • An alert is the second-least-serious of four emergency classifications established by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
    • At about 1:15 p.m. on June 7, FCS operators declared they had taken all appropriate measures to safely return to the previously declared Notification of Unusual Event emergency classification. (See first item above.)

    But the crisis at Fort Calhoun is not over.  Right now, the nuclear facility at Fort Calhoun is essentially an island. It is surrounded by rising flood waters from the Missouri River.

    Officials claim that there is no danger and that they are prepared for the river to rise another ten feet.

    The Cooper Nuclear Station in Brownville, Nebraska is also being threatened by rising flood waters.  A “Notification of Unusual Event” was declared at Cooper Nuclear Station this morning at 4:02.  This notification was issued because the Missouri River’s water level reached 42.5 feet.

    Right now the facility is operating normally and officials don’t expect a crisis.

    But considering what has been going on at Fukushima, it would be nice if we could have gotten a lot more coverage of these events by the mainstream media.

    #2 Most Americans are aware that the U.S. is involved in wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.  However, the truth is that the U.S. military is also regularly bombing Yemen and parts of Pakistan.  If you count the countries where the U.S. has special forces and/or covert operatives on the ground, the U.S. is probably “active” in more countries in the Middle East than it is not.  Now there are even persistent rumors that U.S. ground units are being prepared to go into Libya.  Are we watching the early stages of World War 3 unfold before our eyes in slow motion?

    #3 The crisis at Fukushima continues to get worse.  Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president, recently made the following statement about the Fukushima disaster….

    “Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind”

    TEPCO has finally admitted that this disaster has released more radioactive material into the environment than Chernobyl did.  That makes Fukushima the worst nuclear disaster of all time, and it is far from over.

    Massive amounts of water is being poured into the spent fuel pools in order to keep them cool.  This is creating “hundreds of thousands of tons of highly radioactive sea water” that has got to go somewhere.  Inevitably much of it will get into the ground and into the sea.

    Arnold Gundersen says that the scope of this problem is almost unimaginable….

    “TEPCO announced they had a melt through. A melt down is when the fuel collapses to the bottom of the reactor, and a melt through means it has melted through some layers. That blob is incredibly radioactive, and now you have water on top of it. The water picks up enormous amounts of radiation, so you add more water and you are generating hundreds of thousands of tons of highly radioactive water.”

    The mainstream media is not paying as much attention to Fukushima these days, but that doesn’t mean that it is not a major league nightmare.

    Elevated levels of radiation are being reported by Japanese bloggers all over eastern Japan.  There are reports of sick children all over the region.  One adviser to the government of Japan says that an area approximately 17 times the size of Manhattan is probably going to be uninhabitable.

    Of course the mainstream media has been telling us all along that Fukushima is nothing to be too concerned about and that authorities in Japan have everything under control.

    If the mainstream media is not going to tell us the truth, how are they going to continue to have credibility?

    #4 Members of Congress continue to mention Christians as a threat to national security.  For example, during a recent Congressional hearing U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee warned that “Christian militants” might try to “bring down the country” and that such groups need to be investigated.

    #5 China’s eastern province of Zhejiang has experienced that worst flooding that it has seen in 55 years.  2 million people have already been forced to leave their homes.  China has already been having huge problems with their crops over the past few years and this is only going to make things worse.

    #6 Thanks to the Dodd-Frank Act, over the counter trading of gold and silver is going to be illegal starting on July 15th.  Or at least that is what some companies apparently now believe.  The following is an excerpt from an email that Forex.com recently sent out to their customers….

    Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading

    We wanted to make you aware of some upcoming changes to FOREX.com’s product offering. As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act enacted by US Congress, a new regulation prohibiting US residents from trading over the counter precious metals, including gold and silver, will go into effect on Friday, July 15, 2011.

    In conjunction with this new regulation, FOREX.com must discontinue metals trading for US residents on Friday, July 15, 2011 at the close of trading at 5pm ET. As a result, all open metals positions must be closed by July 15, 2011 at 5pm ET.

    We encourage you to wind down your trading activity in these products over the next month in anticipation of the new rule, as any open XAU or XAG positions that remain open prior to July 15, 2011 at approximately 5:00 pm ET will be automatically liquidated.

    We sincerely regret any inconvenience complying with the new U.S. regulation may cause you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service team.

    Sincerely,
    The Team at FOREX.com

     

    Apparently, Section 742(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act prohibits anyone “from entering into, or offering to enter into, a transaction in any commodity with a person that is not an eligible contract participant or an eligible commercial entity, on a leveraged or margined basis.”

    So what impact is this going to have on the gold and silver markets?

    Nobody is quite sure yet.

    #7 All over the world, huge cracks are appearing for no discernible reason.  For example, a massive crack that is approximately 3 kilometers long recent appeared in southern Peru.  Also, a 500 foot long crack suddenly appeared recently in the state of Michigan.  When you also throw in all of the gigantic sinkholes that have been opening all over the world, it is easy to conclude that the planet is becoming very unstable.

    #8 According to U.S. Forest Service officials, the largest wildfire in Arizona state history has now covered more than 500,000 acres.  But based on the coverage it is being given by the mainstream media you would think that it is a non-event.

    #9 There are reports that North Korea has tested a “super EMP weapon” which would be capable of taking out most of the U.S. power grid in a single shot.  The North Koreans are apparently about to conduct another nuclear test and that has some Obama administration officials very concerned.

    #10 All over the United States, “active shooter drills” are being conducted in our public schools.  Often, most of the students are not told that these drills are fake.  Instead, students often go through hours of terror as they think a hostage situation or a shooting spree is really taking place.

    #11 NASA has just launched a “major” preparedness initiative for all NASA personnel.  The following is an excerpt about this plan from NASA’s own website….

    A major initiative has been placed on Family/Personal Preparedness for all NASA personnel. The NASA Family/Personal Preparedness Program is designed to provide awareness, resources, and tools to the NASA Family (civil servants and contractors) to prepare for an emergency situation. The most important assets in the successful completion of NASA’s mission are our employees’ and their families. We are taking the steps to prepare our workforce, but it is your personal obligation to prepare yourself and your families for emergencies.

    #12 Over the past week over 40 temporary “no fly zones” have been declared by the FAA.  This is very highly unusual.  Nobody seems to know exactly why this is happening.

    So what do all of these things mean?

    It would be nice if the mainstream media would examine some of these important issues more closely and do some honest reporting on them.

    Perhaps you have an opinion on some of these issues.  Feel free to share what you think by leaving a comment below….

    10th Planet Discovered – http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2005/29jul_planetx/

    The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark Mountains, and the Ozark Plateau) are a physiographic and geologic highland region of the central United States. It covers much of the southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of northwestern and north central Arkansas. The region also extends westward into northeastern Oklahoma and extreme southeastern Kansas. The wooded hills of southwest Illinois, though commonly called the “Illinois Ozarks,” are generally not considered part of the true Ozarks.

    Although referred to as the Ozark Mountains, the region is actually a high and deeply dissected plateau. Geologically, the area is a broad dome around the Saint Francois Mountains. The Ozark Highlands area, covering nearly 47,000 square miles (122,000 km2), is by far the most extensive mountainous region between the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains. Together, the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains form an area known as the U.S. Interior Highlands, and are sometimes referred to collectively. For example, the ecoregion called Ozark Mountain Forests includes the Ouachita Mountains, although the Arkansas River valley and the Ouachitas, both south of the Boston Mountains, are not usually considered part of the Ozarks.

    The Ozarks consist of four primary physiographic sections: the Springfield Plateau, Salem Plateau, Saint Francois Mountains, and Boston Mountains. Topography is mostly gently rolling, except in the Boston Mountains, along the escarpments separating the Springfield and Salem Plateaus, and the Saint Francois Range where it is rugged. Karst features such as springs,[9] losing streams, sinkholes and caves are common in the limestones of the Springfield Plateau and abundant in the dolostone bedrock of the Salem Plateau and Boston Mountains.[10] Missouri is known as “The Cave State” with over 6000 recorded caves; the majority of these caves are found in the Ozark counties.[10][11] The Ozark Plateaus aquifer system affects groundwater movement in all areas except the igneous core of the St. Francois Mountains.[12][13][14][15] Geographic features include limestone and dolomite glades are rocky, desert-like area on hilltops. Kept open by periodic fires that limit growth of grasses and forbs in shallow soil, glades are home to collared lizards, tarantulas, scorpions, cacti and other species more typical of the desert southwest.[16][17]

    The Boston Mountains are the highest section of the Ozarks. Summits can reach elevations of just over 2,560 feet (780 m) with valleys 500 to 1,550 feet (472 m) deep (150 m to 450 m). Turner Ward Knob (TWK) is the highest named peak. Located in western Newton County, Arkansas, its elevation is 2,463 feet (751 m). Nearby, five unnamed peaks have elevations at or slightly above 2,560 feet (780 m).

    The Boston Mountains area is a high and deeply dissected plateau located in northern Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. The Oklahoma portion of the range is locally referred to as the Cookson Hills. The rocks of the region are essentially little disturbed, flat-lying sedimentary layers of the Paleozoic age. The highest ridges and peaks are capped by Pennsylvanian sandstone and shale. The deeply eroded valleys are cut into Mississippian limestones and below that layer Ordovician dolomites.

    The Boston Mountains form the southwestern part of the Ozark plateau where they are the highest and most rugged portion of the Ozarks. Summits can reach elevations of just over 2,560 feet with valleys 500 to 1,550 feet deep. Turner Ward Knob (TWK) is the highest named peak. Located in western Newton County, Arkansas, its elevation is 2,463 feet. Nearby, five unnamed peaks have elevations at or slightly above 2,560 feet. Two of these highest peaks are located 2.2 miles west of TWK, one being the location of the Buffalo Lookout fire tower. The other three highest peaks are located 4–5 miles SSW of TWK along Arkansas Highway 16.

    The Boston Mountains are the source of rivers and streams that flow out from the mountains in all directions. Within a 3-mile radius of a point just west of the summits discussed above are located the sources of the White River, the Buffalo River, the Kings River, War Eagle Creek, and Little Mulberry Creek. Other rivers and streams having their headwaters in the Boston Mountains include the Illinois River, the Mulberry River, Lee Creek, Frog Bayou, Big Piney Creek, Illinois Bayou, and the Little Red River. To the south, the Arkansas River valley separates the Boston Mountains from the Ouachita Mountains.

    In Arkansas the Boston Mountains are found in the following counties: Boone, Carroll, Cleburne, Conway, Crawford, Franklin, Independence, Johnson, Madison, Newton, Pope, Searcy, Stone, Van Buren, and Washington.

    In Oklahoma the Boston Mountains are found in these counties: Adair, Cherokee, Muskogee, Sequoyah, and Wagoner.

    The Cascades are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, the ring of volcanoes and associated mountains around the Pacific Ocean. All of the known historic eruptions in the contiguous United States have been from Cascade volcanoes. The two most recent were Lassen Peak in 1914 to 1921 and a major eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. Minor eruptions of Mount St. Helens have also occurred since, most recently in 2006.[1]

    Indigenous peoples have inhabited the area for thousands of years and developed their own myths and legends concerning the Cascades. According to some of these tales, Mounts Baker, Jefferson, and Shasta were used as refuge from a great flood. Other stories, such as the Bridge of the Gods tale, had various High Cascades such as Hood and Adams, act as god-like chiefs who made war by throwing fire and stone at each other. St. Helens with its pre-1980 graceful appearance, was regaled as a beautiful maiden for whom Hood and Adams feuded. Among the many stories concerning Mount Baker, one tells that the mountain was formerly married to Mount Rainier and lived in that vicinity. Then, because of a marital dispute, she picked herself up and marched north to her present position. Native tribes also developed their own names for the High Cascades and many of the smaller peaks, the most well-known to non-natives being Tahoma, the Lushootseed name for Mount Rainier.

    Butte La Rose, LA – A town soon to be under water?

     

    Butte La Rose, LA residents were shocked to learn on Friday that the Morganza spillway on the Mississippi river would be opened, and water would soon be filling their small valley, and submerging their homes. With only days notice, the Army Corps of Engineers explained that the town would soon be under 15 feet of water, and advised everyone in the town to pack as if they were moving away, permanently, stating that this action would be considered an disaster.

    Watch the heated exchange here

    Part 2

    Residents scrambled on Friday to get moving as quickly as possible in fear of the approaching disaster, taking everything they could that could potentially be ruined by invading flood waters.

     

    Watch as the Morganza spillway is opened:

     

    Army Corps of engineers estimated that the water would take 2 days to reach Butte La Rose

    Americans Gone Wild

    The Economic Collapse
    May 6, 2011

    Gerald Celente is known to love to make the following statement: “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose – they lose it.”  Sadly, Celente is exactly right about this.  As the U.S. economy continues to collapse, Americans are going to becoming increasingly frustrated, and this frustration will inevitably boil over into rioting and violence.  Could we be starting to see the start of this already?  The number of Americans that have “gone wild” seems to be escalating.  Years ago, losing a job was not that big of a deal.  Now a job loss is enough to cause some Americans to snap and go over the edge.  We are seeing restaurant brawls and open violence in the streets that would have been unthinkable 50 years ago.  All over the nation people are losing it and are literally going crazy.  The news stories and the videos posted below of “Americans gone wild” are very graphic and very shocking.  There is a reason for this.  These examples are meant to show you that the very fabric of our civilized society is falling apart.  It won’t matter who ends up leading us politically if this is the kind of people we become.

    Sadly, it appears that we are not the same kind of people that we used to be.  Something has changed in America.  Something is different.  We have forgotten many of the things that made us great as a nation.  We no longer live by the same principles.  We no longer value the same truths.

    There are examples of “Americans gone wild” all over the nation.  The things  you are about to read about below are not just isolated incidents.  The truth is that I could have easily included dozens more examples.

    As the economy continues to crumble this trend is going to get even worse.  The following are just a few examples of how Americans have been freaking out and losing it recently….

    *One elementary school teacher in the town of Monroe, Georgia was arrested recently for something very unusual.  One day he made the decision to walk around the halls of his school completely naked.  So why was he naked?  Well, it turns out that he learned that he was going to be fired and so he snapped.

    *As I have written about previously, McDonald’s recently held a “National Hiring Day” and about a million Americans showed up to apply for jobs at McDonald’s restaurants all around the nation.  Well, in Cleveland a horrible fight broke out between some girls and it ended up with three people being run over by a car.  Do not watch this video if you are sensitive to graphic violence….

    *In Sioux City, Iowa a 41 year old man recently walked into the office where his boss worked and beat the living daylights out of him.  The boss suffered four chipped teeth and needed surgery to repair his nose.  Apparently the boss was planning to fire the man.

    *At a McDonald’s restaurant in the Baltimore, Maryland area two young girls recently beat and kicked another young girl so brutally that she started having seizures.  The following video is very graphic and has some very strong language….

    *Recently, one gold thief was so desperate to get into a jewelry store that he rammed his truck backwards through a wall of the store at very high speed.  The thief got away with a bunch of gold and jewelry and the owner is scared to death that he is going to come back and do it again.

    *In the following video from a Denny’s restaurant, young women are actually throwing plates and furniture at each other….

    *In Brooklyn, New York a security camera recently captured chilling footage of a cold-blooded execution right in the middle of the street.  One resident has named that particular street “body-a-week avenue”.

    *In Atlanta, two dozen teens violently assaulted two Delta flight attendants on a train recently for no apparent reason.  The following is how a local Atlanta newspaper described the attacks….

    Their “Clockwork Orange” style blitz was over soon after it began. The teens boarded the train, headed to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, at the Garnett station a little after midnight seemingly intent on instilling fear. They succeeded.

    “There was blood everywhere, people were hollering and screaming,” a witness told Channel 2 Action News. “We were intimidated. People were terrified. People were trying to run. But there was nowhere to run.”

    Sadly, there are hundreds more examples like these.  There are so many restaurant brawl videos up on YouTube that it would take an entire weekend to watch them all.

    You don’t think America has changed?

    What does it say about America when the murder rate in Flint, Michigan is worse than the murder rate in Baghdad?

    There are some areas of the country where people simply do not go out of their homes at night.

    We refused to discipline our young people and demand the best out of them so now we are reaping a bitter harvest.

    According to one recent report, approximately half of all the people that live in the city of Detroit are illiterate.

    Can you imagine that?

    Half of the people that live in a major American city can’t even read?

    Can that possibly be true?

    What does that say about the way that we are educating our children?

    Sadly, due to harsh economic conditions up in Detroit, about half of the schools in the city are being closed down for good.

    That certainly isn’t going to make anything better.

    But this is where we are at as a nation.

    We borrowed and borrowed and borrowed and we never thought that we were going to pay the price.

    Now the “credit card bills” are coming due, and state and local governments from coast to coast are completely broke.

    There are signs of economic decline all over the United States.  More than 33 percent of our men do not have a  job.  Over 44 million of our fellow citizens are on food stamps.  Our country is literally falling apart.

    So is there any hope for our nation or are we going to see even more “random acts of violence” as frustration comes to a boiling point for tens of millions of Americans?

     

    Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation

    Dr. Helen Caldicott
    The Age
    May 1, 2011

    TWENTY-FIVE years after Chernobyl, many billions of dollars are at stake if the Fukushima reactor meltdowns cause the so-called “atomic renaissance” to halt or even slow down. This is evident from the nuclear industry’s vociferous attacks on its critics.

    We see this especially in Australia, where the industry is conducting a whatever-it-takes propaganda campaign to ensure that nothing stands in the way of vast profits to be made from continuing to export uranium; from the plan to establish a radioactive waste dump at Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory; and from the industry’s desire to dot the continent with reactors.

    Proponents of nuclear power – including George Monbiot, who has had a mysterious road-to-Damascus conversion to its supposedly benign effects – accuse me and others of ”cherry-picking” data and overstating the health effects of radiation. Yet by reassuring the public that things aren’t too bad, Monbiot and others misrepresent and distort the scientific evidence of the harmful effects of radiation exposure.

    Their first piece of disinformation is to confuse the effects of external and internal radiation. The former is what populations were exposed to when atomic bombs were detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

    Internal radiation, by contrast, emanates from radioactive elements that enter the body by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer.

    Further, many remain radioactive in the environment for long periods, posing danger for future generations.

    The grave effects of internal emitters are of the most profound concern at Fukushima – as indeed they continue to be at Chernobyl. It is erroneous and misleading to use the term ”acceptable levels of external radiation” in assessing internal radiation doses. To do so is to propagate inaccuracies and to mislead the public worldwide and journalists who are seeking the truth about radiation’s hazards.

    Further, nuclear industry proponents assert that low doses of radiation produce no ill effects and are therefore safe. But, as a US National Academy of Sciences report concluded in 2007, no dose of radiation is safe, however small, including background radiation; exposure is cumulative, so that each dose (whether, for example, from a medical x-ray or from passing through the whole-body scanners soon to be introduced in Australian airports) adds to an individual’s risk of developing cancer during his or her lifetime.

    Regarding Chernobyl, various seemingly reputable groups have issued differing reports on the morbidity and mortalities resulting from the 1986 radiation catastrophe. The World Health Organisation in 2005 attributed only 43 human deaths directly to the disaster and estimated an additional 4000 fatal cancers. In contrast, a 2009 report published by the New York Academy of Sciences comes to a very different conclusion. Its scientist authors estimated the number of deaths attributable to the Chernobyl meltdown at about 980,000.

    Monbiot wrongly dismisses the report out of hand as worthless, but to ignore and denigrate an entire body of literature is arrogant and irresponsible.

    Finally, there is widespread confusion about the roles of the World Health Organisation and the International Atomic Energy Commission. Monbiot expresses surprise that a UN-affiliated body such as WHO might be under the influence of the nuclear power industry, causing its reporting on nuclear power matters to be biased. And yet that is precisely the case.

    In the early days of nuclear power, WHO issued forthright statements on radiation risks, such as its 1956 warning: ”Genetic heritage is the most precious property for human beings. It determines the lives of our progeny, health and harmonious development of future generations. As experts, we affirm that the health of future generations is threatened by increasing development of the atomic industry and sources of radiation.”

    After 1959, the organisation made no more statements on health and radioactivity.

    What happened?

    On May 28, 1959, at the 12th World Health Assembly, WHO drew up an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency. A clause of this agreement says the WHO effectively grants the right of prior approval over any research it might undertake or report on to the IAEA – a group that many people, including journalists, think is a neutral watchdog, but which is, in fact, an advocate for the nuclear power industry. Its founding papers state: ”The agency shall seek to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health and prosperity through the world.”

    The WHO’s subjugation to the IAEA is widely known within the scientific radiation community, something which Monbiot chose to ignore. But it is clearly not the only matter on which he is ignorant, after his recent apparent three-day perusal of the vast body of scientific information on radiation and radioactivity. The confusion that he and other nuclear industry apologists sow about radiation risks is very similar to the way that the tobacco industry propounded misinformation and lies about the true effects of smoking.

    Despite their claims, it is they, not the ”anti-nuclear movement”, who are ”misleading the world about the impacts of radiation on human health”.

    Updated Nuclear Weather Forcast

    Think you’re safe from collapse in the country? Think again…

    Letter Re: The Bosnian Experience

    By James Wesley, Rawles on December 30, 2009 11:45 PM

    Mr. Rawles,
    I want to thank you for having this site and presenting people with opportunity two obtain useful information that could save their lives one day. I have been dedicated reader of your blogs for some time and now think that is my time to contribute some information instead of just reading it. I have survived through collapse of former Yugoslavia and the years of war that followed after. I will try to cover as much of different topics that pertain to every day survival. No matter on how much the person is prepared, it might not be enough.

    I was born and raised on farm in Western Bosnia and we always had enough food and supplies on the farm to survive at least one year without any contact with the outside world. We grew our own wheat and corn and always had enough flour for at least three years. We also had cows, chickens and sheep for dairy products, meat and eggs. The sugar and salt would be purchased in the 50 pound equivalent bags. Besides the motor vehicles we also had horses that could be used for farm work and transportation. We even made our own brandy and had at least three years supply of it. During the peaceful times, before the collapse, we only had one firearm, Yugo M57 Tokarev pistol, with about 50 rounds of ammo, but after the things started to go down the hill, are family arsenal improved. We added a Russian PPSH 41 [submachinegun], a Yugo M48 Mauser [bolt action rifle] and a Yugo SKS[semiautomatic] rifle to our arsenal, but we only had few hundred rounds for the each weapon. A lot of times it was really easy to obtain weapons but getting the decent amount of ammo was more challenging. My father was in the reserve status of Yugoslavian Army so he was issued a M48 Mauser but only got 40 rounds of ammunition with it.

    When the things started to go bad, we were under impression that we would be okay; since we are on the farm and that we can just live there until everything was over. Boy, where we wrong. When the fighting broke out, the villages, small towns and farms were systematically cleared of people, looted and destroyed. You had a better chance of surviving if you lived in an apartment in the big city of if you lived in the farm that was further away from the front lines. It does not matter how good your house is built, it will not sustain few direct hits from the T-72 tank. Also, it does not matter how well you are armed, unless you have numbers on your side (number of armed people), and you dig in and try to protect your property, you will be over-run and destroyed. Yugoslavia had a fairly strict gun laws before the collapse, basically, you could own pistols, shotguns and bolt guns but after the collapse nearly everyone was equipped with selective fire battle rifles.

    I would advise that you don’t keep everything that you have in one location. I was forced to leave my house and take off with just my backpack and weapon. If you can, keep a bug out bag [cached] a few miles away from your house so that you could go to it, if you are forced to abandon your residence. Be prepared to not return to your home for years and try to have another place to live in another part of the country or even some other country. I was not able to go back to my home until years later. Stash as much ammo in different locations as you can. I did not have enough ammo in the first place and whatever I had was used or traded within first month of me leaving my home. Ammo was good trading currency and could get you a meal at any time. Local paper currency was basically worthless but if you had foreign currency, then you were in better shape. At that time German Mark was most popular currency in Europe and could get you anything in former Yugoslavia during the war. The Gold and Silver were good to have but it was harder to find someone that would accept gold and silver as form of payment .

    People that lived in big towns also had their share of problems. If they lived in apartment buildings, they were dependent on central heat and when the things started to go bad, there was no more fuel to heat these apartments. Not that many people had wood burning stoves and the winters in Eastern Europe can get really cold. I would advise that if you don’t have a wood burning stove, to get one and store it somewhere until you need it. You will need it not just for heat but also for cooking. The people that had stoves or were able to obtain them or make them then had another problem, getting the firewood. If you live inside of city that is surrounded and you can’t just go outside of city and cut some trees down, obtaining firewood can become your daily battle for survival. Burning your furniture, books, park benches, trees from the parks and every other tree that you can find will be normal. I would advise that if you are going to have a stove either store at least one winter supply of firewood (if you have a place to store it at) or have a plan where you get that firewood when you need it. Another issue that people from the cities faced was the shortage of water. Some people ended up digging wells in the courtyard of their apartment buildings but majority of people who tried this were unsuccessful since they were digging where there was not water or old city utilities were under the places where they tried to dig. Most of the people were forced to make daily runs to water points and bringing the water back to their families. Water points were favorite targets for snipers. Having extra water jugs will help you minimize your visits to water points.

    Since this is my first post, I will not make it too long and will stop here until the next time. – A Bosnian Survivor

     

    Fukushima raised to level 7 Chernobyl event, Japan admits more radiation escaped than we were told

    Tuesday, April 12, 2011
    by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
    Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles…)

    (NaturalNews) The title of this article probably should have been “TOLD YA SO.” After all the downplaying, all the denials, all the disinfo and deceptions by both the nuclear industry and the mainstream media, it finally emerges that the amount of radiation released by Fukushima was far, far higher than what we were told. How high? So high that the Fukushima catastrophe has now been raised from a level 5 event to a level 7 event on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (http://www-ns.iaea.org/tech-areas/e…). They just skipped right over level 6 because they know even a 6 would be laughable at this point.

    A level 5 event is an “accident with wider consequences.” A level 6 event is a “serious accident,” and a level 7 event is a “major accident.” If you really do the math, however, Fukushima should be alevel 28 eventbecause there are four reactors each at level seven (4×7 = 28). Chernobyl only had one reactor, and it stored far less fuel than any one of the Fukushima reactors.

    The amount of releasedradiationrequired to quality for a level 7 event is “several tens of thousands of terabecquerels.” For example, 50,000 terabecquerels.

    How much radiation has already been released from Fukushima? 500,000 terabecquerels– and that’s just from iodine-131 and doesn’t even count the other isotopes that are also being released (http://apnews.myway.com/article/201…). In other words — and here’s the real shocker — the amount of radiation released from Fukushima is over TEN TIMES the amount needed to qualify for a level 7 event!

    With the arrival of this new designation, Fukushima is now OFFICIALLY a Chernobyl-class event, and nuclear officials are now openly and publicly admitting that the total radiation release from Fukushima could soon exceed Chernobyl – although they’re desperately trying to claim it somehow won’t, if only due to the power of their own imaginations.

    Meanwhile, we’re being treated to an ever-expanding lesson in the table of elements as yet more radioactive materials are being detected in the Fukushima releases. Today, strontium was found in the soils near Fukushima, adding to the impressive list of other elements that were blown into the environment by the explosions there: Plutonium, Iodine and Cesium. (BBC)

    If only Fukushima had blown gold out of its core, Japan might actually have a way to pay for all this, by the way. But sadly, the byproducts of nuclear fission are not the precious metals we would all wish for. Rather, they are the radioactive elements determined by the laws of physics — the very same laws of physics that the nuclear industry once thought it had smugly conquered.

    Murphy, that clever little bastard, seems to crop up everywhere these days.

    Far worse than we were originally told

    With this new designation of a level 7 event, the massive cover-up has melted down. Although Japan has tried desperately to withhold radiation data, shut off the gauges, explain away the extremely high sensor readings and assure everybody that it was only a “miniscule” amount of radiation being released into the environment, the sad but undeniable truth of the matter is that Fukushima is a global-scale nuclear disasterthat’s now unleashing radiation across the world that’s showing up in our milk and food.

    The excuse behind raising the event to level 7 right now instead of earlier is laughable but predictable: Authorities claim they just didn’t know how to measure the radiation!

    “Our preparations for how to measure (the radiation leakage) when such a tsunami and earthquake occurred were insufficient and, as a result, we were late in disseminating information internationally,” said a senior official working for Prime Minister Naoto Kan. (http://www.cnbc.com/id/42542704)

    In other words, the nuclear industry didn’t know how to measure radiation, they claim, and even when they did figure out how to take measurements, they withheld the resulting data.

    The clever disinfo campaign marches on. NISA is now saying that the radiation released into the atmosphere is only 10 percent of Chernobyl’s release. But what they don’t readily admit is that they’re releasing massive quantities of radioactive water into the ocean, and that doesn’t count as “atmosphere,” you see.

    They also don’t want you to remember that Fukushima is engage in an ongoing release of radiation with absolutely no end in sight. It is only a matter of weeks, in other words, before Fukushima does exceed the total Chernobyl release levels.

    How do we know that? For one, that same senior official quoted above also says the Japanese government is now telling TEPCO to “set target dates for when it would halt the radiation leakage as well as restore the cooling systems” (http://www.cnbc.com/id/42542704).

    Set target dates? It’s like being stuck in a bureaucratic nightmare. Let’s all have a committee conference, and we’ll put together an “actionable game plan” so that we can “accentuate our positive accomplishments” while we all “facilitate going forward with team players” and other such nonsense corporate speak that often flows from the mouths of business suit morons who have no idea what to do but somehow want to take credit for it.

    If there’s a target date to set for halting the radiation, it should be TODAY. If there’s a target date to restore cooling to the spent fuel rods, it should be YESTERDAY. Does anyone really believe these are things to be slapped onto a calendar like your best friend’s birthday?

    Oh, and by the way, we’re now supposed to believe the Japanese government is telling us the truth from here forward, I suppose. Sure, they lied about the radiation releases in the past. They downplayed the seriousness of the event; they withheld data and explained away the broken gauges as flukes. But now they’re suddenly going to be up front with all of us and tell us the truth, you see. Now we’re going to get honest and accurate information out of Japan, if you can believe that.

    Still, nuclear industry shills can’t help themselves from continuing to downplay the situation. “Judging from all the measurement data, it is quite under control,” says Hironobu Unesaki, a nuclear physicist at Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute (http://apnews.myway.com/article/201…). He also said that raising Fukushima to a level 7 event was no cause for worry, and that “…it doesn’t mean that a significant amount of release is now continuing.”

    It seems that Unesaki didn’t receive the memo that says, “Stop lying to the public.”  He’s still operating from the previous official memo which instructed everyone to, “Deny and Downplay.”

    Remember when Fukushima was only a level 4 event and all the nuclear industry experts and government experts were saying “this is nothing like Chernobyl?” Then it was raised to a level 5 event and they repeated, “It’s still nothing like Chernobyl.” And now with the official designation at level 7, they’re screaming, “We swear! It’s nothing like Chernobyl!”

    Except that it is. It’s a lot like Chernobyl. All the elements are the same, after all: The toxic iodine-131 and cesium-137 being released into the environment. The strange but persistent government cover-ups. The lying to the public. The downplaying of the human fatalities caused by the event. The outrageous ineptitude of the nuclear industry “experts” who told us these power plants were safe.

    It sound almost exactly like Chernobyl, come to think of it. And if you read the news archives from 1986, you’ll find extremely harsh words from the USA condemning the Ukranian officials for withholding data and downplaying the situation there. And yet, just 25 years later, the tables are turned. Now Japan and the USA are in full-on cover-up mode, playing the part of the Soviet officials who lied to their own people about the severity of the disaster.

    If there’s one thing we’ve all learned from history, it’s that you can always count on your government to lie to you in times of trouble. At precisely the moment the People need honest, accurate information about the severity of a disaster or crisis, government leaders will take to the podium and calmly announce that everything is fine and people should take no precautions whatsoever. And then immediately after these speeches are given, they scurry off to their underground command bunkers.

    Here’s a video of Obama telling Americans there’s no problem with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. It’s hilarious (in a sad sort of way): http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=61EFA…

     

    Japanese Nuclear Crisis Upgraded to Chernobyl Level

    From the Wall Street Journal:
    The Japanese government raised its assessment of the monthlong crisis at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to the highest severity level by international standards—a rating only conferred so far upon the Chernobyl accident.

    Japan’s nuclear regulators said the plant has likely released so much radiation into the environment that it must boost the accident’s severity rating on the International Nuclear Event scale to a 7 from 5 currently. That is the same level reached by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the former Soviet Union, which struck almost exactly 25 years ago, on April 26, 1986.

    “Based on the cumulative data we’ve gathered, we can finally give an estimate of total radioactive materials emitted,” Hidehiko Nishiyama, spokesman for Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, said at a press conference Tuesday.

    Radioactive water spilled at Onagawa nuclear plant after Thursday’s quake

    Related: 3 killed, 132 injured after 7.4 quake hits Miyagi Pref, vicinity

    Kyodo News
    April 8, 2011

    Radioactive water spilled from pools holding spent nuclear fuel rods at the Onagawa power plant in Miyagi Prefecture following the strong earthquake late Thursday, the nuclear safety agency said Friday.

    At the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant or at another plant in Fukushima Prefecture, meanwhile, no new problems have surfaced since the magnitude 7.4 aftershock of the deadly March 11 quake.

    While the spent fuel pools at the Onagawa plant and the Higashidori nuclear power station in Aomori Prefecture, both operated by Tohoku Electric Power Co, lost their cooling functions for 20 to 80 minutes after the quake, the temperature hardly rose, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

    A small amount of contaminated water spilled on the floor was observed inside the buildings at all three reactors at the Onagawa plant, which has suspended operations since the mega earthquake and tsunami last month, according to the agency.

    In all, water spilled or leaked at eight sections of the plant as a result of the 11:32 p.m. quake, according to Tohoku Electric.

    As much as 3.8 liters of water leaked at one of them, with the highest level of a radioactive isotope—5,410 bequerels per kilogram—found in the spilled water on the floor beside a spent fuel pool in the building housing the No. 1 reactor.

    A spent nuclear fuel disposal facility in the village of Rokkasho, Aomori Prefecture, lost external power supply and switched to an emergency generator but power was restored at 9:44 a.m. Friday, according to the agency.

     

    The Higashidori nuclear power plant in Aomori also got power from an emergency generator after the Thursday quake, but its external power supply was restored at 3:30 a.m. Friday, according to Tohoku Electric and the government’s countermeasure headquarters.

    No changes in radiation readings have been observed at any of the facilities, including Fukushima Daini, a nuclear power plant just south of Daiichi, both operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. Nor is there any information that radioactive materials have leaked outside due to the aftershock.

    Higashidori’s only reactor was undergoing regular maintenance at the time of the temblor, and its fuel rods were not inside the core but were stored in a spent fuel pool, the agency said.

    The Onagawa nuclear plant lost three of its four external power connections but one of them was restored on Friday morning, with its cooling system for the spent nuclear fuel pools temporarily stopped.

    Tokyo Electric said no new abnormalities have developed in any of the six reactors at Fukushima Daiichi, which it has struggled to bring under control since the plant was crippled by the disaster and began spewing radioactive materials into the environment.

    No workers at the plant were hurt in the aftershock, the power supplier said, adding that its damage control steps of pumping fresh water into the No. 1 to No. 3 reactors to prevent them from overheating and injecting nitrogen into the No. 1 unit to prevent hydrogen from exploding were unaffected.

    The quake late Thursday, focused about 40 kilometers off the coast of Miyagi, jolted areas in Miyagi already hit hard by last month’s quake.

    Meanwhile, Tokyo Electric continued to release relatively low-level radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean to make room for far more contaminated water that has flooded the basement of the No. 2 reactor’s turbine building.

    Once the utility finishes releasing the low contaminated water, it will check a facility that had held the water to see if there are any cracks to ensure that there would be no leakage when the more contaminated water is diverted there.

    The turbine building needs to be cleared of radioactive water to restore sustainable cooling systems for the No. 2 reactor, which lost normal cooling functions and suffered a partial meltdown of the core since the deadly quake last month, along with the No. 1 and No. 3 reactors.

    The No. 4 reactor had no fuel in its core but suffered a loss of cooling functions for its fuel pool. The No. 5 and No. 6 reactors have since been brought to a stable condition.

    On Friday, the power company reinforced the earth around a cracked pit, from which highly radioactive water had leaked into the sea before it was successfully plugged by injecting sodium silicate, a chemical agent known as ‘‘water glass.’‘

    Since the leakage had stopped, the company observed about a 7-centimeter rise in the level of contaminated water in a vertical tunnel connected to the No. 2 reactor building, from which the tainted water is believed to have originated.

     

    7.4-magnitude quake hits northeastern Japan, tsunami warning in effect

    TOKYO, April 7 (Xinhua) — An earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale hit the sea near Miyagi Prefecture in northeastern Japan at 23:32 p.m. (1432 GMT) local Time Thursday, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

    Tsunami warnings have been lifted so far, the agency said.

    The focus of the quake was located some 40 km under the sea off the northeastern prefecture ,said the agency.

    Xinhua’s office building in Tokyo swayed for a while when the quake occurred.

    The quake has not brought any major problems to the nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture so far, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co.

    The weather agency considered the quake as the aftershock of the devastating March 11 quake.

    According to Kyodo news reports, blackouts were seen all over Aomori, Iwate and Akita prefectures as well as several parts of Miyagi and Yamagata prefectures, according to the nuclear regulator.

    Nuclear power stations in Ibaraki Prefecture were operating normally after the quake, while at the Onagawa nuclear plant in Miyagi Prefecture, which has been suspended, two external power supply units among three have failed, according to the nuclear regulator.

    Tohoku Electric Power Co. said, meanwhile, external power supply was disrupted at the No. 1 reactor of the Higashidori nuclear station. The emergency generator is being used to cool the spent fuel pool.

    In Rokkasho, Aomori Prefecture, external power supply was disrupted at the spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plant of Japan Nuclear Fuel Ltd. The emergency generator is being used there, Kyodo said.

    In Miyagi Prefecture, expressways were closed due to the quake.

    The crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power station started after the March 11 killer earthquake and tsunami. Strong aftershocks continued after the quake.

    A 9.0-magnitude earthquake shook the Pacific coastal areas of northeastern and eastern Japan on March 11, triggering enormous tsunami.

    According to the National Police Agency, the twin disasters had left 12,468 people dead and 15,091 others unaccounted for in Japan by 10: 00 a.m. Wednesday.

    The Japanese authorities have been stepping up efforts to fix the troubled Fukushima nuclear power plant crippled by the disasters.

    Fukushima – An Extinction Level Event? Iconoclast’s view on our most certain demise if we fail to act.

    A couple of years ago, after playing an outstanding PC video game called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Shadow of Chernobyl from a little known developer in Russia called GSC Game World I became sort of obsessed with the idea of going there, and seeing that place. In the game, you are a “STALKER”, or a guide of sorts, a hunter of sorts, a survivalist and traveller through the strange and radiation soaked landscape of the Exclusion Zone. Through powerful Zone emissions, deep pockets of intense radiation, and the ever present, and deadly anomalies, you search through the rubble and ruin of the Zone’s landscape, searching for anything of value as you trudge through the dreary Zone, seeking a man named Strelok. The Zone is intricate in its detail, simulating the lost city of Pripyat perfectly, and the feeling of lonesome desolation is very romantic, and rich in its beauty.

    The developers continued on to make more S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, and with each one, my interest in going to see this place grew. The strange, and dangerous Zone, with its intense radiation emanating from ruined army vehicles, oppressively terrifying underground laboratories filled to capacity with horrifyingly warped and twisted creatures who might have once been human, more zombified Russian soldiers than you can handle with your broken weapons and paltry supplies.

    The game, especially with the Oblivion Lost mod on it, is one of the top games in my recent memory, and it got me to really thinking about the accident that occurred when I was just a young boy in a new light. I did a little bit of research online and discovered that you can actually go into the Zone now, through official channels, and with closely supervised guided tours. You can actually get right up to the plant, and look upon the Sarcophagus with your own eyes, and do so with little danger. You can go and visit the lost city of Pripyat, and as long as you stay off the earthen ground, you will not absorb that much radiation, and can probably go home and have a couple normal children.

    But this all got me to thinking about the reason this is possible now, 25 years on. The Soviet government, at the time, was extremely evasive of questions and inquiries and they were not telling the people what was really happening. The Kremlin told the people in the affected area of contamination exactly the same thing about the yellow rain that today’s Japanese government is telling their citizens, that the yellow rain coming down after the accident was simply pollen. Children played it, not realizing, for lack of information, that this yellow rain contained extremely hazardous radioactive fallout from the exploded reactor. It was a horrible tragedy, and it could have been a LOT worse, had it not been for the heroic and self-sacrificing nature of the people who stayed behind to bury Chernobyl in boron and cement, sealing it off (temporarily) from the harmful radioactive fission particles swirling around Europe. Those people died quickly afterwards, and not a single one is left today. They knew that the radiation was deadly, but they also understood that they had to act quickly to avoid a very serious, and possible Extinction Level Event from happening. The brave souls that stepped into the breach of Chernobyl, and sealed it off immediately saved humanity from the cost of a very serious problem which could have altered our way of life on this world forever, and likely already has to some degree.

    Chernobyl’s reactor is still producing fission, still going through the meltdown process and will continue to do so for a very very long time. The sarcophagus is ever in need of repair, and ever in need of brave souls who will tend to that need, lest the beast begin spewing its toxic clouds again. Chernobyl is not “over”, and it won’t be “over” in that sense for a couple thousand years yet.

    What is happening in Japan at this point, with these people, the “Fukushima 50″ being sacrificed to keep a doomed reactor going, is appalling. The fight to save these reactors is a fight to save face in front of the world on the part of the Japanese. Millions of lives are at risk, and instead of burying the reactors immediately, and using the lives of the brave souls who have chosen to stay behind not to save a reactor who’s levels are 10 millions times normal levels and rising, but to BURY them, and seal them off. This adds another very LONG term responsibility to humanity, but lets face the situation at hand. If we continue to allow Fukushima to burn, and to spew radiation, we as a species have not got long on this earth. We NEED to bury these reactors as a united human race. Japan, step aside, and let humanity save itself. Bury those reactors immediately. Cease your operations to save the doomed plant, and bury it immediately, before all is lost, before all of humanity is tainted with cancerous radiation.

    I’m sick to death of hearing every day about these pitiful efforts to save this doomed, and potentially world-ending technology at Fukushima. There should be no debate about this anymore. Why are we attempting to save it after reactor 3 blew sky high two weeks ago! This is unacceptable. I’m tired of the talking heads trying to reassure us that radiation levels are normal, and that there is nothing to worry about. I’m in complete disbelief that our own President told us to shut up, and not prepare, and to listen to them for all the information we need, when they clearly DO NOT intend to tell us the reality.

     

    People claim that somehow the monitoring stations on the internet are showing normal levels, without any thought to the fact that the worldwide water shipping lanes are monitored and tracked and you can track EVERY ship in the world, pretty much, unless they head into the Suez Canal and the Gulf of Aden region (one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world!). Your information is being manipulated and controlled. Everywhere you look, “don’t panic” is the statement of the day. Don’t take potassium iodide. In fact, don’t even buy it. You have nothing to fear.

    The insert on the potassium iodide that somehow I managed to secure from the empty shelves actually says “Don’t take unless a government official tells you to do so”. Really? I’m going to trust the people with the worst possible track record for telling the truth?

    I recently was flipping through the television and came across an old Transformers episode, like I used to come home to every day after school at 3:30pm. In it, the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron, is attempting to persuade a human political official that the Autobots are evil. After announcing himself as Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, he explains to the official that it is in fact the Autobots who are trying to deceive humanity! (The Decepticons then disguise themselves as the good guys, the Autobots and begin committing crimes, getting themselves caught on tape, for which the real Autobots eventually get framed for, lose in the court of public opinion, and eventually get tried and convicted by humanity, and and exiled off world)

    But it’s as if this is how life is. After being told by someone to our face that they are lying to us, we still can’t help but believe they are telling us the absolute truth and cannot even recognize deception when it’s plain as day in front of us.

    Wake up time. If Fukushima Daiichi is not buried immediately, Starting Today, we are facing an ELE (Extinction Level Event) and without immediate action, we are facing long time health risks over a wider area that ever imagined possible in all of the pandemic wargaming that the elite have been playing with us all for the past couple of years.

     

    What we have here is a failure to understand the basics. Nuclear fission is happening, neutron beams have been observed coming out of the reactor, which absolutely means that nuclear fission is occurring and that there is a containment breach. Today’s news that there is 10 million times the normal radiation levels being detected is evidence that we’ve waited too long as a people for the greedy corporations (Tokyo Power and GE) to attempt to save their technology at the health risk of us all, and IF we can get through the lies, the rhetoric, the panic and fear, and simply ACT NOW to seal this thing away forever, perhaps there’ll still be a Tokyo around for my grandchildren to see someday.
