“If wind and solar power are cheaper and quicker, do we really need Hinkley Point?” • Should Theresa May take the axe to the troubled Hinkley Point nuclear project, it will propel wind and solar power further into the limelight. Britain would do well to focus such things as on lithium-air, sodium-ion, and flow batteries. [The Guardian]

Australia attempts to derail UN plan to ban nuclear weapons Diplomats force a vote on a report to begin negotiations on a ban in 2017 that had been expected to pass unanimously, Guardian, Michael Slezak, 21 Aug 16, Australia has attempted to derail a ban on nuclear weapons at a UN meeting on disarmament, by single-handedly forcing a vote on a report that had been expected to pass unanimously.The report, which recommended negotiations begin in 2017 to ban nuclear weapons, was eventually passed by 68 votes to 22. An Austrian-led push for the treaty had reached a milestone on Friday, when the report was presented to representatives of 103 nations in Geneva.Moves towards a ban have been pursued because many saw little progress under the existing non-proliferation treaty, which obliges the five declared nuclear states to “pursue negotiations in good faith” towards “cessation of the nuclear arms race … and nuclear disarmament”.The proposal recommended a conference be held next year to negotiate “a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading towards their total elimination”.The text was carefully negotiated, and compromise was attempted on contentious paragraphs.
In the aftermath of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the Fukushima Prefectural government has been conducting a health monitoring survey for all its residents. It has come to light that the prefectural government had secretly been holding “preparatory meetings” with the experts involved, prior to the committee meetings, in order to review the monitoring results which are open to public. In one preparatory meeting, the review committee members agreed on the analysis of the findings in advance, and signed off on a consensus that “the occurrence of cancer is not related to the nuclear power plant accident”. The handling of the proceedings was determined and agreed upon before the public session. The expert members were also forbidden to reveal the existence of this preparatory meeting to the outside.[Forbidding the members to talk] secret meeting at a separate location, collecting the meeting materials afterward, strict confidentiality observed!

Apache killing civilians in Iraq
After historic flooding devastated Louisiana this week, a Hebrew Roots radio station suggested that the statewide disaster could be understood as divine retribution for anti-Israel resolutions passed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA) in New Orleans last weekend.
(Anyone who knows anything about ocean and atmospheric physics should be concerned about this picture. Here we see the April 8, 2016 ocean surface temperature anomaly reanalysis provided by Earth Nullschool and developed from data collected by NCEP and the National Weather Service. Here we see a large swath of Gulf Stream waters ranging from 5-8 C above average temperatures coming into collision with waters in a North Atlantic cool pool ranging from 1-10 C below average. It is the increasing difference in temperature, or thermal gradient, between these two ocean zones that Hansen and others identify as having a high potential for very severe storm generation.)
Something about all the spiritual experiences I had was truncated. A seventh-dimensional experience of the Oversoul had no bliss. The kundalini completing itself at the crown chakra didn’t lead to Brahmajnana (God-Realization). When I’d ask Archangel Michael about these matters, he’d say, Oh, we want you to remain anchored to Gaia and to continue writing. We don’t want you leaving this place or losing yourself in meditation. You can visit these states but you can’t stay.I can visit but I can’t stay? I can have a piece of the experience but not the full thing? A preview of coming attractions?From these glimpses into Paradise, I can say that bliss is everything it’s cracked up to be. If that’s the atmosphere in the Fifth-Dimension, then let me buy the first ticket. I can personally attest that the future is friendly. Is that not the benefit of visiting?
