A powerful typhoon has left 75 people missing after sinking three Chinese fishing boats in the South China Sea,The incident took place after the vessels with 88 fishermen aboard encountered strong winds near the Paracel Islands, said a statement released by the Hainan government in south China.
"[The asteroid] was discovered on Friday night by our station near Lake Baikal and nine hours later it flew within 11,300km of the Earth’s surface, below the orbit of geostationary satellites. It was about 15 meters in size,” Vladimir Lipunov of the Moscow State University and the Sternberg Astronomical Institute.
“All of humanity will be threatened for thousands of years” if the Fukushima Unit 4 pool can’t be kept cool. Your worries about eating cesium-contaminated fish from the Pacific Ocean are grounded in fact, but this is a world-wide disaster of the most epic proportions just waiting to happen. I
This is worse than bad news. This is planetary chaos news. This is civilization ending news. This is species extinction level news, as in extinction of the human species on this planet. If you do not think so, all I can say is: wait. It won't be long. Probably not ten years, not five, maybe by Christmas this year...
An amendment dubbed the “Monsanto Protection Act,” which currently allows large agriculture and biotech corporations to ignore court orders involving the safety of genetically modified seeds, has been stripped from Senate’s spending bill that could be voted on as early as Wednesday afternoon.
Not only bleeding from their fins, but their bellies, their chins, their eyeballs. [...] “It was 100 per cent … I couldn’t find any that weren’t bleeding to some degree, sickly red colour.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has requested safety inspections that could let it restart two nuclear reactors. All of Japan's nuclear plants are offline, parliamentary panel was questioning TEPCO's president, Naomi Hirose, over the company's handling of the accident, as radiation leaks persist.
Delay constructing underground walls to block the leakage of contaminated water because other work was more urgent. TEPCO was aware of the possible leakage of radioactive water into the sea at an early stage.Large amounts of radioactive materials have already drifted into the Pacific.
. A report earlier this year from the Environmental Working Group found that tap water may not be your best bet—determining every water sample they tested, from 201 city water systems in 43 states, was contaminated with “probable human carcinogens.”Fluoride chlorine,trihalomethanes.
Mercury has ability to bind to precious metals, used to mine gold, silver. Small-scale, mining use mercury this way has recently become leading source of mercury pollution, Mining releases mercury into air when burned off to isolate gold from rock or slurry; seeps into soil, rivers from water used in the process.
Cesium levels in the Pacific had gone up an 45 million times above pre-accident levels.declined rapidly, levelled off.In July, cesium levels stopped declining and remained 10,000 times above pre-accident levels.The ocean isn’t diluting radiation. If it had, cesium levels would have kept falling.

Monsanto’s genetically modified alfalfa ended up contaminating a ‘GMO-free’ crop harvest, the USDA went on record in declaring that the genetic contamination was perfectly normal and not any of their concern. Says that it’s really a ‘marketplace’ issue.
Iodine protects against radiation. Important to have adequate iodine levels BEFORE fallout hits. Radiation exposure from medical practices such as mammograms and cancer treatments, as well as nuclear power plants. Numerous foods rich in iodine: Egg, Potato with peel, Milk, Iodized Salt, Turkey, Navy beans.
New “bio-engineered” honey product Surgihoney. Honey already known for speeding wound recovery, killing MRSA. Manuka honey in particular has ability to kill strep and other viruses. People (and governmental agencies) won’t believe in the healing power of nature until man has meddled in it.
Scientific American editorial, "Labels for GMO Food Are a Bad Idea." "Instead of providing people with useful information, mandatory GMO labels would only intensify the misconception that so-called Frankenfoods endanger people's health." claim GMO labeling increase costs for families $400 per year.
Prime Minister Abe: the “effects from the contaminated water have been perfectly blocked within the bay.”
“By stating this clearly, I want to bring an end to harmful rumors about Fukushima,” Teruhiko Mashiko, an Upper House member and vice president of the Democratic Party of Japan: Prime Minister Abe told a lie,”
USDA announced this week that the agency has changed the process for exempting otherwise prohibited substances (such as synthetics) in food that carries the “organic or “made with organic” label. This decision makes it easier to continue use of artificial ingredients and substances.
The report published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, nuclear weapon proliferation experts Robert Norris and Hans Kristensen estimate that Israel halted its production of nuclear warheads back in 2004 “once it reached around 80 munitions,” RT reports Monday.
The operator of the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant said that it dumped more than 1,000 tons of polluted water into the sea after a typhoon raked the facility. 300 tonnes of contaminated groundwater is entering the ocean every day TEPCO says.
this staggering reality lurks continually behind the scenes of the major media spotlight, but it cannot be ignored any longer. think about courses of action should a much greater incident take place, already accumulating vast quantities of radiation in the northern hemisphere's atmosphere and the Pacific ocean.
Scientists have found a rare and deadly amoeba in the water supply of a Louisiana parish where a child died last month from a brain infection caused by the microscopic organism, according to state health officials.
Workers were pumping out water from areas near tanks storing radioactive water, from which leaks are believed to have seeped into groundwater.“But we decided to release the water into sea as we reached a conclusion that it can be regarded as rainfall after we monitored levels of radiation,” TEPCO spokesman Yo Koshimizu said.
The Japan Meteorological Agency ( JMA) on Monday has issued emergency warnings on heavy rain in Kyoto, Shiga and Fukui prefectures as the 18th typhoon, Man-yi, made a landfall near the area earlier the day. The special warning was been launched for the first time since the warning system was introduced late August.
Japan is to start the process of switching off its last working nuclear reactor with no firm date set for the potential restart of the reactor.
If you haven’t heard of Washington’s Initiative 522, it’s the state’s version of a GMO labeling act that will go into effect if enough signatures are received – and could go into effect in July of 2015. The 522 Initiative is getting heated enough, but extra controversy surrounds the law due to its implications
We need the national news stations to go cover the environmental disaster that’s happening in Colorado right now.
Colorado emergency management officials have released an initial estimate that says the ongoing flooding has damaged or destroyed nearly 19,000 homes.
Japan should begin preparing to release a massive tide of water from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean, once it regains public trust and can confirm the water has only low levels of radiation, a U.S. adviser to the plant's operator said on Sept. 13.
Tepco doesn’t know how to stop the leaks - Scientists have no idea where the cores of the nuclear reactors are - Radiation could hit Korea, China and the West Coast of North America fairly hard. But the real problem is that the idiots who caused this mess are probably about to cause a much bigger problem.
Bio-accumulation of radioactive elements around Fukushima will devastate many future Japanese generations, while the Pacific Ocean is also being contaminated by leaking radioactive water. Yet there is still no good solution from the Japanese government.
There is No Place On Earth to Escape the Rad - articles have been widely circulated in various social media outlets about Fukushima and the nuclear horrors we collectively face. It seems that the ‘Pro-Nuker Propaganda Machinery’ is ampped up in full force, and unbelievably, re-cycling old lies from 2011
Among several “chemicals of concern” recently removed from a list of proposed regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency, Bisphenol A, a neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor that also damages DNA, has been banned in several other nations and in eleven US states.
Japanese government has assured the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that it would take the initiative in dealing with the massive buildup of radioactive water at the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the country's northeast.
This week, radiation levels at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan hit a “new high”, according to officials there. While the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), who owns the site, seems to have been content painting a rosy picture for the world, the situation has been worsening.
The Japanese government said it will spend almost half a billion dollars, much of it to build a giant wall of ice underground to try to stop the flow of radioactive water leaking into the ocean.
Radiation readings of 1,800 millisieverts (mSv) per hour - 18 times the level at the same spot 10 days ago - have been detected at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
Chris Busby: I think this is an indication that it has actually deteriorated significantly, very suddenly in the last week. What they are not saying and what is the missing piece of evidence here is that radiation suddenly cannot increase unless something happens and that something cannot be leakage from a tank,
The headlines are dire: Two and a half years after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Dai-ichi, contaminated water is leaking from the plant at a faster rate than most people realized, getting into the groundwater and the Pacific Ocean.
Workers are still unable to say when they will be able to stop the water from seeping into the ocean. The plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company has been trying to contain tainted groundwater from leaking into the ocean since the accident.
