It’s perfectly ordinary to be a socialist. It’s perfectly normal to be in favor of fire departments.

“And so we’re very comfortable with how the mission was executed.”

Commerce Secretary Pritzker declares fisheries disasters for nine West Coast species

How close are we to the zombiepocalypse?

In recent years, each of these fisheries experienced sudden and unexpected large decreases in fish stock biomass due to unusual ocean and climate conditions.

Cancer on the Rise in Post-Fukushima Japan

In Fairewinds’ latest update of the ongoing nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima Daiichi, Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen presents two reports that confirm the direct link of numerous cancers in Japan to the triple meltdown. Based upon data from Japanese medical professionals and utility owner of the meltdown site, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), Arnie concludes that heavy radioactive discharges will be the cause of enormous spikes in cancer in Japan.

TEPCO’s press release confirms the leukemia diagnosis for a TEPCO worker due to his ongoing exposure during the last four years to radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi triple meltdown. Sadly, during the early months of the Fukushima Daiichi emergency, most TEPCO workers did not wear the required dosimeters required to measure each employee’s exposure to radiation, which has made accurate assessment of the radiation doses received by TEPCO employees impossible.

The second report, provided by esteemed Japanese medical professionals, reveals that the incidence of thyroid cancer is approximately 230 times higher than normal in the Fukushima Prefecture.  This disturbing number for the people of Japan is solely due to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster and the ongoing radioactivity emanating from the decimated nuclear site.

In this video, Arnie recounts his presentation from 2013 at the New York Academy of Medicine where he forecast continuous radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and also the devastating health effects for the Japanese people, despite the chronically underestimated radiation exposure levels propagated by the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Japanese government.

Fascism is corporatism, according to none other than Benito Mussolini. He had a handle on what fascism is. Better understanding than you do, anyway.

Here is another example of fascism here in the US. Toxic chemical manufacturers are allowed to “report” the risks themselves (lie about).

Because Homeland Security Allows Chemical Plants to Self-Report Toxic Releases, 44% are Wrong

The GAO report (pdf) estimated that more than 2,700 of the estimated 6,400 facilities, or 44%, misreported the Distance of Concern.

‘San Andreas’ Blockbuster Has Huge Radioactive Omissions

Deepwater Horizon oil spill contributed to high number of Gulf dolphin deaths

Destroyed an area of sea floor “bigger than the state of Connecticut.”

BP stooge:

“Extensive sampling and rigorous chemical analysis has shown that the only significant concentrations of Macondo oil that were found in sediments in the offshore environment were found in the vicinity of the wellhead,”

01bpday3.adapt.676.3

As for BP’s claim that oil stayed near the well, that has “been fairly well dismissed,” he adds. Last year, a team published evidence that a “plume” of hydrocarbons from the Macondo well contaminated about 1,200 square miles (3,200 square kilometers) of ocean floor.

In what should be considered an ongoing Crime Against Humanity, poisoning the Pacific Ocean with uncontrolled releases of radioactivity, the Fukushima debacle continues 4 years on.

Fukushima No. 1′s never-ending battle with radioactive water

he nightmare continues at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, which suffered three reactor core meltdowns and is plagued daily by increasing amounts of radioactive water.

FUKUSHIMA 4 YEARS ON

Everyone responsible should, of course, be tried and imprisoned. Tepco should be dissolved and replaced immediately. An international force of experts and aid should descend upon the site and stop the radiation from entering the ocean. Atomic power should be outlawed as an unnecessary risk, and plants shut down permanently.

Japanese Doctor: “Tokyo should no longer be inhabited”

” contamination in the east part [of Tokyo] is 1000-4000 Bq/kg and the west part is 300-1000 Bq/kg. […] 0.5-1.5 Bq/kg before 2011. […] Tokyo should no longer be inhabited […] Contamination in Tokyo is progressing, and further worsened by urban radiation concentration”

 

Experts: Fukushima ‘globally enhanced’ cesium-137 levels in air by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude

 

Clearly detectable in tuna at California coast…

Sure enough every single fish without exception was radioactive. Every single one. They were all like clones of each other… all the same [levels of radioactive cesium from Fukushima].

Leaked World Bank lending policies ‘environmentally disastrous’

Radical plans by the World Bank to relax the conditions on which it lends up to $50bn (£29bn) a year to developing countries have been condemned as potentially disastrous for the environment and likely to weaken protection of indigenous peoples and the poor.
