Massive earthquakes, volcanoes, tidal waves, and natural disasters galore—Japan would seem a rather precarious perch for nuclear power plants. Flooding from Tropical Storm Etau, overwhelmed the water pumps at the infamous ruins of Fukushima, washing more radioactive waste into the ocean, another reminder of how fragile Japan’s atomic energy program really is.
After unearthing a 30,000-year-old virus from the icy wasteland of Siberia, scientists plan to awaken it under the premise of ‘fear that a warming climate will awaken dangerous microscopic pathogens.’
At least 82 large bags filled with radioactive waste from decontamination efforts were washed away when a river overflowed in the Fukushima prefectural village of Iitate.
Researchers analyzed 219 pollen and 53 honey samples from 62 hives, found neonicotinoids in pollen and honey from almost every sample collected, in each and every location.
A U.S. appeals court ruled Thursday federal regulators erred in allowing an insecticide developed by Dow AgroSciences onto the market. Demise of the bees has become a hotly debated topic between agrichemical companies, which say the insecticides they sell are not to blame, and those who say research shows a direct connection between neonicotinoids and large bee die-offs.
Male fish are becoming hermaphroditic due to environmental insults (such as chemicals in the water), male fish now may have testes that contain eggs, and their ability to reproduce has become questionable.
Biotechnology companies like Monsanto are hiring academics to speak on their behalf about the supposed safety and benefits of genetically modified food products to help save them from a tsunami of bad press.
An appeals court in the French city of Lyon has supported a local grain grower in his battle against US herbicide producer Monsanto, upholding a previous ruling that the company is responsible for poisoning the farmer with its toxic weedkiller over ten years ago.
3 workers died in August. (cf, August’s 3rd worker died in Fukushima plant after the work of retained contaminated water beside Reactor 1
Subcontract worker was found losing consciousness in the toilet of entry-management building of Fukushima plant. The worker was confirmed to be in cardiopulmonary arrest state aprox. 10 minutes later. Identity has not been disclosed about this worker. The dose level is not reported either.
An announcement has surfaced from the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) which states they will begin labeling Monsanto’s herbicide ingredient, glyphosate as a “probable carcinogenic,
180 million gallons of fracking byproduct spilled from 2009 to 2014, tainting agricultural land, poisoning drinking water, and sparking the mass die-off of plant and animal life.
Dr. Antoniou: a very low level of consumption of Roundup weedkiller over the long term can result in liver and kidney damage, pattern of alteration was found in the gene function of the liver and kidneys at this extremely low level of exposure.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is considering a move to eliminate the “Linear No-Threshold” (LNT) basis of radiation protection that the U.S. has used for decades and replace it with the “radiation hormesis” theory—which holds that low doses of radioactivity are good for people.
One possible explanation downplayed by the mainstream media is radiation leaking from the Fukushima power plant. Exposure to even small traces of radiation can have an accumulative effect over time. Radiation from the Fukushima power plant has not stopped leaking hundred of tons of radiation leak into the ocean everyday.
The United Nations is posting a new environmental warning: the world is running out of time to prevent the gradual degradation of the world’s oceans and widespread destruction of marine life, delays in implementing solutions to problems identified as threatening to degrade the world’s oceans will lead, to greater environmental, social and economic costs.
