“We were definitely surprised to see it at all – and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured” Pacific bluefin tuna migrating last year from coastal Japan to the waters off Southern California contained radioactive cesium isotopes from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, scientists reported Monday.
the pool, an 11-meter deep well.., stretches between floors three and four... Radiation spiked on the second floor at 500 microsieverts per hour... By the fourth floor, near the top of the building, where an explosion during the nuclear accident a year earlier had blown off the ceiling and bits of walls, readings were down to 300 microsieverts per hour.
It took some 10 million years for Earth to recover from the greatest mass extinction of all time, latest research has revealed. Life was nearly wiped out 250 million years ago, with only 10 per cent of plants and animals surviving. It is currently much debated how life recovered from this cataclysm, whether quickly or slowly.
Don’t these people live on the same planet, work in the same world, and play on the same turf as the rest of us?! Don’t they drink the same water, eat the same food, breathe the same air? Truly, the leaders of the World Shadow Government (WSG) have soiled their own nest in ways that are forever irremediable and irreversible. Sounds totally crazy, does’t it? That’s because it is! However, the question still remains —–> Why? … WHY?! … … WHY ?!
TEPCO’s new estimates suggest that its Fukushima reactor has released more than quadruple the amount of radioactive cesium-137 leaked during the Chernobyl disaster. But the method used to measure the damage may undervalue the hazard even further.
Brazil’s congress just passed a forest code that puts the Amazon and other forests in jeopardy – it now sits on her desk and the deadline for her to pass or veto ends within the next 24 hours. Her decision will have massive ramifications for Brazil. The code, if approved, would give loggers and farmers free rein to chop down 190-million acres of Brazilian forests. A territory roughly the size of France and Britain combined would be at risk to chainsaws. It would put forests and rivers up for grabs, placing 70% of Brazil’s river basins at risk. It would also give amnesty to anyone previously charged with illegal deforestation. But, this code would be a catastrophe, not just for Brazil, but all our futures. Brazil is home to 40% of the world’s last remaining rainforest – a lung that provides the earth with one fifth of our oxygen.
Ambassador Murata makes public statement in English: Once a quake beyond magnitude 6 or 7 happens, then the world starts heading towards the ultimate catastrophe — Unit 4 a global security issue (VIDEO)
Whether a pool where spent fuel is stored at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant could withstand another strong earthquake has become a source of growing concern. The concerns among activists, experts and politicians focus on Unit 4, which contains most of the plant's spent fuel not stored in dry, hardened storage casks, Stars and Stripes reported. After the 9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami, an investigative report by the Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation, an independent think tank started to investigate the causes of the plant disaster, cited among risks a loss of cooling water in Unit 4. If left exposed, the spent fuel could heat and melt, releasing a huge amount of radiation.
Helen Caldicott: The Medical Implications of Fukushima, Nuclear Power and Nuclear Proliferation. Dr. Helen Caldicott: They don’t know how to clean it up. It’s not in cold shutdown. The corium — the mass, hundred tons of melted uranium lava — is laying on the floor of the containment vessels. It hasn’t finished and will never finish. I think it means the end of Japan financially. Is the corium inside the containment vessels? Top Japan official: Very strong possibility there is nuclear fuel outside containment vessel: VIDEO
First of all, it hits you hard. Right in the heart. Your family is at stake, humanity is at stake. We’re being relentlessly attacked by some unidentified force and we’re reeling, with not a lot to stand on. Our planet’s resources are being polluted faster than we can identify. Everything we just years ago held dear and tried to naturally defend has been so drastically altered it’s beyond identification or comprehension.
More than a year after a devastating earthquake and tsunami triggered a massive nuclear disaster, experts are warning that Japan isn't out of the woods yet and the worst nuclear storm the world has ever seen could be just one earthquake away from reality.
Concerns focused on any number of problems that could start a cascade of events at Fukushima. Former ambassador to Japan to Switzerland has warned of basically a civilization ending event for Japan.
Physicist: Unit 2 completely liquified, 100% liquification of uranium core -- "We've never seen this before in the history of nuclear power". Michio Kaku is an American theoretical physicist, the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics in the City College of New York of City University of New York, a co-founder of string field theory [...] Kaku graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968 and was first in his physics class. He attended the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972.
Freshwater tropical species hardest hit, says World Wildlife Fund. The world's biodiversity is down 30 percent since the 1970s, according to a new report, with tropical species taking the biggest hit. And if humanity continues as it has been, the picture could get bleaker.
Doomsday scenarios spread about No. 4 reactor at Fukushima plant... Mitsuhei Murata, 74, a professor emeritus at Tokaigakuen University who once served as Japan’s ambassador to Switzerland, said, “The existence of the No. 4 reactor has become a major national security issue for the entire world that does not take a back seat even to North Korea’s missile issue.”
A recent video is going viral showing an American man describing his European vacation experience in a rental Volkswagon Passat while in the UK. He was shocked to see the vehicle was getting 50+ miles-per-gallon carrying four adults and hefty luggage. He discovered that without the typical vacation load, the UK's VW Passat could run a whopping 65+ miles per gallon. Back in the States, he contacted a Volkswagon dealer about the diesel model, but the best mileage available was 44 miles-per-gallon from the TDI Passat model. When pressed, the dealer finally admitted, "The US Government won't allow it." Why exactly would fuel efficiency be suppressed, and how widespread is this inequality?
Mr. Oyama, a Minamisoma city councilor measured cesium 134 / 137 of the soil of Minamisoma city.
Along with three other family members, Mikio Watanabe plans to bring the case to the Fukushima District Court on May 18. Watanabe and his family argue that the Fukushima nuclear disaster led his wife, Hamako, to suffer depression and commit suicide at the age of 58.
Food scandals are so costly to Big Food that it has repeatedly tried to kill the messenger rather than clean up its act. Thanks to factory farming's massive economies of scale, a lot of food today is disgusting or cruel or disgusting and cruel. Just when people stopped talking about cantaloupes with deadly listeria, "pink slime" hit the news. And just when people stopped talking about pink slime, ground beef treated with ammonia to kill germs, mad cow hit the news. Does anyone even remember the arsenic in the fruit juice?
"Alarming amount" of plastic having ecosystem-wide effects. Plastic garbage in the ocean has increased 100-fold in the past 40 years and could have ecosystem-wide impacts, according to a study released Tuesday. Seaplex researchers Matt Durham and Miriam Goldstein encounter netting and plastic in the Pacific. (Photograph: Scripps Institution of Oceanography) Scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography looked at the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG), known as the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch,’ and found an "alarming amount" of plastic trash, much in small bits.
Documents show for the first time that local anti-wind groups are co-ordinating and working with national fossil-fuel funded advocacy groups to wreck the wind industry. A network of ultra-conservative groups is ramping up an offensive on multiple fronts to turn the American public against wind farms and Barack Obama's energy agenda.
A group of sunspots 11 times wider than the Earth turned to face our planet, raising the possibility of solar flares and auroras tonight, reports CNET. More than 60,000 miles wide, Sunspot Region 1476 became visible over the weekend and two coronal mass ejections (CMEs), where a portion of the sun's atmosphere breaks off, erupted on Tuesday.
Description: Japanese Nuclear Scientist and Japanese and US medical doctors to discuss current radiological health conditions and concerns in Japan after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor catastrophe
An article was posted at Natural Society on Dec. 17, 2011 which ought to have put everyone on notice about the true state of the food supply. The expose indicated that mercury is showing up in much higher amounts than previously reported. Test results on junk food is especially alarming regarding the concentrations of mercury being found.
At least 1,200 pelicans and other sea-faring birds have washed up dead on Peru's northern coastline, just weeks after 600 dolphins died in the same region. Now, the Peruvian government has issued a health alert, asking people stay off the beaches until scientists can figure out what is causing the massive die-offs.

Japanese Nuclear Scientist and Japanese and US medical doctors to discuss current radiological health conditions and concerns in Japan after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor catastrophe.
Mankind may face extinction if it fails to change its ways, the Club of Rome think tank has said. Short-sighted political and economical models are the problem, according to a new report by the group.
‘Doomsday-like’ radiation release if fire in pool at unit 4 — “It would be a global catastrophe… it already has been, but it would dwarf what’s already happened” -Nuclear Waste Expert
A stream of highly charged particles from the sun is headed straight toward Earth, threatening to plunge cities around the world into darkness and bring the global economy screeching to a halt. This isn’t the premise of the latest doomsday thriller. Massive solar storms have happened before — and another one is likely to occur soon, according to Mike Hapgood, a space weather scientist at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford, England.
Today, the Obama administration proposed new rules on the fracking industry's procedures and oversight on public lands. Outdated fracking regulations have been replaced with out of touch fracking regulations, falling short of protecting communities from toxic pollution, according to environmental groups.
More than a year after the triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, the Japanese government, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) present similar assurances of the site's current state: challenges remain but everything is under control. The worst is over.
Exclusive: Letter Shows Monsanto Planted GMOs Before USDA ApprovalDid Monsanto actually plant genetically modified alfalfa before it was deregulated by the USDA? There is some shocking evidence that, until recently, was withheld from the public showing that Monsanto’s genetically altered alfalfa may have been set free in 2003 — a full two years or more before it was deregulated in 2005.
The movies of radiation measurement in Fukushima were uploaded. The first video was taken in the same location as “Reality in Fukushima”. The last 2 videos were taken about 1.5km south west to “Reality in Fukushima
Are you ready—it is becoming clear that we, our children and our entire civilization is hanging by a thread. It is a very sorry thing to report that we have literally shot ourselves in the foot with a big nuclear shotgun full of radioactive particles of the worst conceivable kind.
Global Research's Online Interactive I-Book Reader brings together, in the form of chapters, a collection of Global Research feature articles and videos, including debate and analysis, on a broad theme or subject matter.
Thirteen months have passed since the Fukushima reactors exploded, and a U.S. Senator finally got off his ass and went to Japan to see what is going on over there. What he saw was horrific. And now he is saying that we are in big trouble.
Dandelions found today in a parking lot in Rochester Hills Michigan, about 20 miles north of Detroit, where I found mutations last weekend.
What do they know that we don’t? Financial reports, for the uninitiated, can take awhile to see the light of day, so-to-speak. I’ve just learned that in February (2010) TIAA-CREF and Fidelity Management and Research collectively dumped nearly 5,000,000 shares of Monsanto stock.
AutismAn autistic child. (Photo: Cindy Seigle / Flickr)On a recent front page of The Salt Lake Tribune, a frightening, oversized headline read, "Highest rate in the nation, 1 in 32 Utah boys has autism." Less well publicized, another national story ran the same day: "New pesticides linked to bee population collapse." If you eat food and hope to do so a few years from now, this should be equally frightening. A common denominator may underlie both stories.
Monsanto, the massive biotechnology company being blamed for contributing to the dwindling bee population, has bought up one of the leading bee collapse research organizations. Recently banned from Poland with one of the primary reasons being that the company’s genetically modified corn may be devastating the dying bee population, it is evident that Monsanto is under serious fire for their role in the downfall of the vital insects. It is therefore quite apparent why Monsanto bought one of the largest bee research firms on the planet.
