Over 200 people were arrested in Paris on Sunday during a banned rally to urge a deal at an upcoming United Nations summit on climate change, local media reported. The rally was held despite a ban on all demonstrations under a state of emergency announced in the wake of recent terrorist attacks in the city.
The French interior ministry said Friday the government was trying to prevent the activists from demonstrating ahead of the COP21 conference, but their lawyers and Amnesty International accused the government of abusing the 'state of emergency' put into effect after the Paris attacks.
Russia’s state nuclear energy company Rosatom is ready to help Japan shut down the reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. A huge earthquake and a resulting tsunami hit the plant in March 2011, causing three nuclear meltdowns and a massive radiation leak. Japan has been struggling in its cleanup effort in the aftermath of the nuclear accident, the cleanup estimated to take up to 40 years.
Researchers in China recently found E.coli bacteria that are resistant to the antibiotic colistin, often called the antibiotic of last resort, concerning healthcare professionals is that the circle of DNA that makes the bacteria resistant to colistin can be passed on to other strains of harmful bacteria.
United Nations report warns of the "high price" of extreme weather disasters that are spurred in large part by a warming globe and rising sea levels. The number of annual weather-related disasters has been climbing along with global temperatures.
Sugar beet demand (with most of all sugar beets being grown in the US being genetically modified) fell to less than 41% of the U.S. total of 11.8 million tons (10.7 million tonnes) in the last fiscal year, a record low down from 47% of 10.4 million tons in the 2008 crop year. 2008 was the year the biotech seeds were introduced on a commercial scale.

The mayor of a town near the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant filed a complaint Nov. 20 against Shiroishi city for providing radiation-contaminated pasture grass to a local farmer.
US tried to ship genetically modified salmon eggs to Prince Edward Island in Canada, meant to be sent to Panama to be used in what activists are calling a ‘huge, live experiment,’ could have permanently damaged non-GM salmon. Hurricanes, human error or equipment failure could release the GM fish from their land-based hatcheries into the ocean. Measures to avoid mixing with wild Atlantic salmon inadequate.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday approved genetically modified salmon, the first such altered animal allowed for human consumption in the United States; said the fish is safe to eat, "no biologically relevant differences in the nutritional profile of AquAdvantage Salmon compared to that of other farm-raised Atlantic salmon." Company's CEO, said the fish is a "game changer that brings healthy and nutritious food to consumers in an environmentally responsible manner without damaging the ocean."
In 2011 there were positively measured results of iodine and cesium… These measurements are a direct result of [the] Fukushima nuclear plants, also affected broad leaf vegetation sample media throughout the year as long-lived radionuclides (Cs-137) were released at Fukushima multiple times. The vegetation measurements in 2014 are still affected by the Fukushima event due to the long-lived radionuclides deposited. The vegetation control sample station located in Orlando, Fl. is also experiencing similar Cs-137 deposition on the broad leaf sample media.
These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected some people this week around the United States.
RADIATION CPM* COMPARISON CITY STATE
*Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument.
All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.
The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city reporting is listed last. Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are the Top Five highest of the 30 American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM this week.
New York at 633 CPM High this week.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM.

European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said on Thursday that glyphosate is unlikely to cause cancer in humans, despite the World Health Organization’s declaration in March that the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide is “probably carcinogenic to humans.” The agency proposed a higher exposure limit on the daily amount of glyphosate residue. Previous studies have linked glyphosate and cancer in animals.
“This field trial is moving forward with little to no assessment of the real world risks it presents. Once these GE moths are out in the wild, there is no turning back. Every possible scenario needs to be accounted for. Until federal agencies have implemented rigorous regulations around GE insects, this GE moth trial should be halted.”
Oakland city attorney Barbara Parker accused Monsanto of concealing information on the dangers of Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCBs), long before they were banned by U.S. Congress. Parker charges that despite this knowledge, Monsanto continued to produce and distribute these compounds,allegedly polluted the San Francisco Bay thus destroying marine ecosystems and threatening human health.
