Well this just pulls at the heartstrings. Give the disabled babies a bumper car to learn with, ya stingy bastards.

Arne Gunderson and Ian Goddard analyze the National Academy of Sciences BEIR report from 2006 on cancer risks from radiation exposure. Also, more recent studies of nuclear industry workers shed light on increased cancer risk from even allegedly “low levels” of radiation exposure. Chilling scientific facts contradict the feel-good corporate propaganda streaming from governments and media organizations. Black and white facts expose the Big Lie of the supposed safety of nuclear power. Fukushima’s devastation is a global catastrophe that should be of interest to every person.
Cancer Risk To Young Children Near Fukushima Daiichi Underestimated
Fairewinds analyzes cancer rates for young children near Fukushima using the National Academy of Science’s BEIR (Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation) VII Report. Based on BEIR VII, Fairewinds determines that at least one in every 100 young girls will develop cancer for every year they are exposed to 20 millisieverts [millisievert (1 mSv = 0.001 Sv)] of radiation. The 20-millisievert/ year figure is what the Japanese government is currently calculating as the legal limit of radiological exposure to allow habitation of contaminated areas near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
In this video, Fairewinds introduces additional analysis by Ian Goddard showing that the BEIR VII report underestimates the true cancer rates to young children living near Fukushima Daiichi. Looking at the scientific data presented by Mr. Goddard, Fairewinds has determined that at least one out of every 20 young girls (5%) living in an area where the radiological exposure is 20 millisieverts for five years will develop cancer in their lifetime.

This looks to be a very ambitious documentary that seeks to change the world. It calls out the waste inherent in the globalized system, the unnecessary transporting of goods all over the world, and the drive for a more localized economy.

Mainstream news covers, yet continues to cover-up, the 9/11 attacks.
Chris Matthews asks CIA (allegedly former) official Robert Baer about the US role in 9/11, and Baer replies that it’s only the “crazies” who suggest such things. Baer readily admits, however, to a treasonous cover-up of the Saudi role in the 9/11 attacks AFTER the fact. Baer says not one word about the misdeeds inside the US government — and Baer’s own CIA — BEFORE the attack, you know, when it actually mattered most.
This is a half-truth at best, and meant to mislead whatever audience tunes in about the role of the Saudis, while ignoring that the Saudis, the Pakistanis and most of the dictatorial regimes of the world work for Uncle Sam. That is why billions of dollars in so-called “aid” flow in yearly and sophisticated weapons systems are transferred to these heinous dictatorships. It’s why they are protected from UN scrutiny. It is why the US military “trains” their police forces and militaries in “counter-insurgency” so that they may better oppress their own people and prevent democracy from taking over.
That is called US “foreign policy” by those who actually know what goes on, as the broadcast mentions the politically-articulate 20% of the population.
I suppose we should be grateful that this news story is being given any airtime at all, as it clearly implicates the Saudi government for an act of war on September 11th 2001, and indirectly implicates US high officials for Article 3 treason:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” -U.S. Constitution

“Far from helping an embattled nation, NGOs operating in Syria are being accused of helping the push towards military intervention. Some are peddling unverified reports to deliberately encourage foreign action. The agencies hold sway with groups like NATO, which has weighed in on their findings before – with deadly consequences. RT’s Marina Portnaya has more.”
