Kundalini Energy Is Rising Globally, Chakras, Nadis, Prana, Universal Consciousness, Shakti, Subtle Energy, And Kundalini Syndrome Explained

There are many dimensions of reality beyond the physical one here on Earth. This article describes one way to access other dimensions through what is known as Kundalini energy or chakra awakening, which can happen spontaneously, resulting in what is known as Kundalini Syndrome. Awakening the kundalini energy or chakra system increases and awakens a person into a state of increasing universal consciousness, as opposed to a purely ego based and limited awareness. This article defines Kundalini energy, discusses various methods of awakening kundalini energy, and goes into detail about Kundalini Syndrome. This knowledge has existed in India for over 5,000 years.
Via Wikipedia: “Kundalini (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī, कुण्डलिनी, pronunciation  stems from yogic philosophy as a form of shakti or “corporeal energy”.[1] Kundalini is described within Eastern religious, or spiritual tradition as an indwelling spiritual energy that can be awakened in order to purify the subtle system and ultimately to bestow the state of Yoga, or divine union upon the seeker of truth “.[2][3] The Yoga Upanishads describe Kundalini as lying “coiled” at the base of the spine, represented as either a goddess or sleeping serpent waiting to be awakened. In modern commentaries, Kundalini has been called an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force.[1][4][5]

What are chakras, prana, nadis, etc?

It is reported that Kundalini awakening results in deep meditation, enlightenment and bliss.[6] This awakening involves the Kundalini physically moving up the central channel to reside within the Sahasrara Chakra at the top of the head. This movement of Kundalini is felt by the presence of a cool or, in the case of imbalance, a warm breeze across the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.[3][7][8][9] 
Many systems of yoga focus on the awakening of Kundalini through meditationpranayama breathing, the practice of asana and chanting of mantras.[6] In physical terms, one commonly reports the Kundalini experience to be a feeling of electric current running along the spine.[10][11][12]
Some academics have coined the term “Kundalini syndrome” to refer to physical or psychological problems arising from experiences traditionally associated with Kundalini awakening.[13]

ETYMOLOGY

The Sanskrit adjective kuṇḍalin means “circular, annular”. It does occur as a noun for “a snake” (in the sense “coiled”, as in “forming ringlets”) in the 12th-century Rajatarangini chronicle (I.2).Kuṇḍa, a noun with the meaning “bowl, water-pot” is found as the name of a Naga inMahabharata 1.4828. The 8th-century Tantrasadbhava Tantra uses the term kundalī (“ring, bracelet; coil (of a rope)”).[14][clarification needed]
The use of kuṇḍalī as a name of Durga or of a Shakti appears as a technical term in Tantrism and Shaktism as early as c. the 11th century, in the Śaradatilaka.[15] It is adopted as kuṇḍalniī as a technical term into Hatha yoga in the 15th century and becomes widely used in the Yoga Upanishads by the 16th century. Eknath Easwaran has paraphrased the term as “the coiled power,” a force which ordinarily rests at the base of the spine, described as being “coiled there like a serpent”.[16] The phrase serpent power was coined by Sir John Woodroffe, who published his translation of two 16th-century treatises on laya yoga (Kundalini yoga) in 1919 under this title.

DESCRIPTION

Kundalini is described as a sleeping, dormant potential force in the human organism.[17] It is one of the components of an esoteric description of the “subtle body“, which consists of nadis(energy channels), chakras (psychic centres), prana (subtle energy), and bindu (drops of essence).
Kundalini is described as being coiled up at the base of the spine. The description of the location can vary slightly, from the rectum to the navel.[18] Kundalini is said to reside in the triangular shaped sacrum bone in three and a half coils.[19]
Kundalini has been described as “a residual power of pure desire” by Nirmala Srivastava[19] and “a huge volume of energy” that is latent within a person by Jaggi Vasudev.[20]

Yaggi Vasudev video

(In this Youtube video, Sadhguru explains the power of kundalini yoga, power of kundalini and once awakened through kundalini yoga, kundalini meditation, how the kundalini shakti travels to the navel chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra and finally the third eye chakra. He further explains in the video that from the navel chakra to third eye chakra there are different kundalini yoga, kundalini meditation techniques that can be taught to the beginners but from the third eye chakra to the sahasar chakra there are not yoga meditation methods simple one has to jump through trust.
If you are beginner and interested in awakening your kundalini shakti and activate your navel chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra, third eye chakra, you must learn the kundalini yoga, kundalini meditation taught as “Inner engineering” as online yoga meditation class, please visit the following website for more information:- http://www.innerengineering.com)

KUNDALINI AWAKENING

Kundalini can be awakened by shaktipat—spiritual transmission by a Guru or teacher—or by spiritual practices such as yoga or meditation. Sometimes Kundalini reportedly awakens spontaneously as the result of physical or psychological trauma, or even for no apparent reason. When awakened, Kundalini is said to rise up from the muladhara chakra through the central nadi, called sushumna, inside or alongside the spine and reaching the top of the head. The progress of Kundalini through the different chakras leads to different levels of awakening and mystical experience, until Kundalini finally reaches the top of the head, Sahasrara or crown chakra, producing an extremely profound mystical experience.
Numerous accounts describe the experience of Kundalini
Ramana Maharshi mentioned that Kundalini is nothing but the natural energy of the Self, where Self is the universal consciousness (Paramatma) present in every being, and that the individual mind of thoughts cloaks this natural energy from unadulterated expression. Advaita teaches self-realization, enlightenment, God-consciousness, and nirvana. But, initial Kundalini awakening is just the beginning of actual spiritual experience. Self-inquiry meditation is considered a very natural and simple means of reaching this goal.[21]

(Ram Dass On Ramana Maharshi http://youtu.be/-q1WQZR5GXQ)

Swami Vivekananda described Kundalini briefly in London during his lectures on Raja Yoga as follows:

(Documentary about Swami Vivekananda http://youtu.be/XZgeb0OZPrY)

According to the Yogis, there are two nerve currents in the spinal column, called Pingalâ and Idâ, and a hollow canal called Sushumnâ running through the spinal cord. At the lower end of the hollow canal is what the Yogis call the “Lotus of the Kundalini”. They describe it as triangular in form in which, in the symbolical language of the Yogis, there is a power called the Kundalini, coiled up. When that Kundalini awakes, it tries to force a passage through this hollow canal, and as it rises step by step, as it were, layer after layer of the mind becomes open and all the different visions and wonderful powers come to the Yogi. 
When it reaches the brain, the Yogi is perfectly detached from the body and mind; the soul finds itself free. We know that the spinal cord is composed in a peculiar manner. If we take the figure eight horizontally (∞) there are two parts which are connected in the middle. Suppose you add eight after eight, piled one on top of the other, that will represent the spinal cord. The left is the Ida, the right Pingala, and that hollow canal which runs through the centre of the spinal cord is the Sushumna. 
Where the spinal cord ends in some of the lumbar vertebrae, a fine fibre issues downwards, and the canal runs up even within that fibre, only much finer. The canal is closed at the lower end, which is situated near what is called the sacral plexus, which, according to modern physiology, is triangular in form. The different plexuses that have their centres in the spinal canal can very well stand for the different “lotuses” of the Yogi.[22]
When Kundalini Shakti is conceived as a goddess, then, when it rises to the head, it unites itself with the Supreme Being (Lord Shiva). Then the aspirant becomes engrossed in deep meditation and infinite bliss
Paramahansa Yogananda in his book God Talks With Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita states:

At the command of the yogi in deep meditation, this creative force turns inward and flows back to its source in the thousand-petaled lotus, revealing the resplendent inner world of the divine forces and consciousness of the soul and Spirit. Yoga refers to this power flowing from the coccyx to Spirit as the awakened kundalini.[23]
The yogi reverses the searchlights of intelligence, mind and life force inward through a secret astral passage, the coiled way of the kundalini in the coccygeal plexus, and upward through the sacral, the lumbar, and the higher dorsal, cervical, and medullary plexuses, and the spiritual eye at the point between the eyebrows, to reveal finally the soul’s presence in the highest center (sahasrara) in the brain.[24]
In his article on Kundalini in the Yoga Journal, David Eastman narrates two personal experiences. One man said he felt an activity at the base of his spine starting to flow so he relaxed and allowed it to happen. A feeling of surging energy began traveling up his back, at each chakra he felt an orgasmic electric feeling like every nerve trunk on his spine beginning to fire. 
A second man describes a similar experience but accompanied by a wave of euphoria and happiness softly permeating his being. He described the surging energy as being like electricity but hot, traveling from the base of his spine to the top of his head. He said the more he analyzed the experience, the less it occurred.[25]
Shiv R. Jhawar describes his Kundalini awakening experience in the physical presence of Muktananda.[26]
Muktananda giving shaktipat

The arousing of Kundalini is said by some to be the one and only way of attaining divine wisdom. Self-realization is said to be equivalent to divine wisdom, gnosis or self-knowledge.[27]

DIFFERENT APPROACHES

There are two broad approaches to Kundalini awakening: active and passive. The active approach involves systematic physical exercises and techniques of concentration, visualization, pranayama (breath practice) and meditation under the guidance of a competent teacher. These techniques come from any of the four main branches of yoga, and some forms of yoga, such as Kriya yoga, Kundalini yoga and Sahaja yoga emphasize Kundalini techniques.
The passive approach is instead a path of surrender where one lets go of all the impediments to the awakening rather than trying to actively awaken Kundalini. A chief part of the passive approach is shaktipat where one individual’s Kundalini is awakened by another who already has the experience. Shaktipat only raises Kundalini temporarily but gives the student an experience to use as a basis.[25]

HATHA YOGA

According to the hatha yoga text, the Goraksasataka, or “Hundred Verses of Goraksa”, certain hatha yoga practices including mula bandha, uddiyana bandha, jalandhara bandha andkumbhaka can awaken Kundalini.[28] Another hathayoga text, the Khecarīvidyā, states thatkechari mudra enables one to raise Kundalini and access various stores of amrita in the head, which subsequently flood the body.[29]

SHAKTIPAT

The spiritual teacher Meher Baba emphasized the need for a master when actively trying to awaken Kundalini:


God Speaks; by Meher Baba ‘The Theme of Creation’
Kundalini is a latent power in the higher body. When awakened it pierces through six chakras or functional centres and activates them. Without a master, awakening of the kundalini cannot take any one very far on the Path; and such indiscriminate or premature awakening is fraught with dangers of self-deception as well as misuse of powers. The kundalini enables man consciously to cross the lower planes and it ultimately merges into the universal cosmic power of which it is a part, and which also is at times described as kundalini … The important point is that the awakened kundalini is helpful only up to a certain degree, after which it cannot ensure further progress. It cannot dispense with the need for the grace of a Perfect Master.[30]

KUNDALINI AWAKENING WHILE PREPARED OR UNPREPARED

The experience of Kundalini awakening can happen when one is either prepared or unprepared.[25]

PREPAREDNESS

According to Hindu tradition, in order to be able to integrate this spiritual energy, a period of careful purification and strengthening of the body and nervous system is usually required beforehand.[31] Yoga and Tantra propose that Kundalini can be awakened by a guru (teacher), but body and spirit must be prepared by yogic austerities such as pranayama, or breath control, physical exercises, visualization, and chanting. Patañjali emphasised a firm ethical and moral foundation to ensure the aspirant is comfortable with a reasonable degree of discipline and has a serious intention to awaken their full potential. The student is advised to follow the path in an openhearted manner.[25]
Traditionally people would visit ashrams in India to awaken their dormant kundalini energy. Typical activities would include regular meditation, mantra chanting, spiritual studies as well as a physical asana practice such as kundalini yoga. However, kundalini is now widely known outside of the Hindu religion and many cultures globally have created their own ways to awaken the kundalini energy within people. 
Without explanation, an increasingly large percentage of people are experiencing kundalini energy awakenings spontaneously which means, it is not vital to follow a distinct set of instructions or rules in order to awaken the energy.[32]
Part I: Five necessities for full, safe, and permanent kundalini awakening, part 1 of 2 Tao Semko of KundaliniAwakeningProcess.com
Part II

UNPREPAREDNESS

Kundalini can also awaken spontaneously, for no obvious reason or triggered by intense personal experiences such as accidents, near death experiences, childbirth, emotional trauma, extreme mental stress, and so on. Some sources attribute spontaneous awakenings to the “grace of God”, or possibly to spiritual practice in past lives.[25]
A spontaneous awakening in one who is unprepared or without the assistance of a good teacher can result in an experience which has been termed as “Kundalini crisis”, “spiritual emergency” or “Kundalini syndrome“. The symptoms are said to resemble those of Kundalini awakening but are experienced as unpleasant, overwhelming or out of control. Unpleasant side effects are said to occur when the practitioner has not approached Kundalini with due respect and in a narrow egotistical manner. Kundalini has been described as a highly creative intelligence which dwarfs our own. Kundalini awakening therefore requires surrender; it is not an energy which can be manipulated by the ego.[25]

PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS

Physical effects are believed to be a sign of Kundalini awakening by some,[33] but described as unwanted side effects pointing to a problem rather than progress by others.[31] The following are either common signs of an awakened Kundalini or symptoms of a problem associated with an awakening Kundalini (commonly referred to as Kundalini syndrome):

KUNDALINI AWAKENING SYNDROME

Involuntary jerks, tremors, shaking, itching, tingling, and crawling sensations, especially in the arms and legs
Energy rushes or feelings of electricity circulating the body
Intense heat (sweating) or cold, especially as energy is experienced passing through the chakras
Spontaneous pranayama, asanas, mudras and bandhas
Visions or sounds at times associated with a particular chakra
Diminished or conversely extreme sexual desire sometimes leading to a state of constant or whole-body orgasm
Emotional upheavals or surfacing of unwanted and repressed feelings or thoughts with certain repressed emotions becoming dominant in the conscious mind for short or long periods of time.[25]
Headache, migraine, or pressure inside the skull
Increased blood pressure and irregular heartbeat
Emotional numbness
Antisocial tendencies
Mood swings with periods of depression or mania
Pains in different areas of the body, especially back and neck
Sensitivity to light, sound, and touch
Trance-like and altered states of consciousness
Disrupted sleep pattern (periods of insomnia or oversleeping)
Loss of appetite or overeating
Bliss, feelings of infinite love and universal connectivity, transcendent awareness
One person’s account of Kundalini Syndrome
Reports about the Sahaja Yoga technique of Kundalini awakening state that the practice can result in a cool breeze felt on the fingertips as well as on the fontanel bone area.[19][34] One study has measured a drop in temperature on the palms of the hands resulting from this technique.[33]

WESTERN INTERPRETATION

Kundalini is considered an interaction of the subtle body along with chakra energy centers and nadis channels. Each chakra is said to contain special characteristics[35] and with proper training, moving Kundalini through these chakras can help express or open these characteristics.
Sir John Woodroffe (pen name Arthur Avalon) was one of the first to bring the notion of Kundalini to the West. As High Court Judge in Calcutta, he became interested in Shaktism and Hindu Tantra. His translation of and commentary on two key texts was published as The Serpent Power. Woodroffe rendered Kundalini as “Serpent Power” for lack of a better term in the English language but “kundala” in Sanskrit means “coiled”.[36]
Western awareness of the idea of kundalini was strengthened by the Theosophical Society and interest by the psychiatrist Carl Jung (1875–1961).[37]
Jung’s seminar on kundalini yoga, presented to the Psychological Club in Zurich in 1932, has been widely regarded as a milestone in the psychological understanding of Eastern thought. Kundalini yoga presented Jung with a model for the development of higher consciousness, and he interpreted its symbols in terms of the process of individuation.[38]
The founder of the Aetherius Society George King describes the concept of Kundalini throughout his works and claimed to have experienced this energy many times throughout his life while in a “positive samadhic yogic trance state”.[39] According to King,
It should always be remembered that despite appearances to the contrary, the complete control of Kundalini through the spinal column is man’s only reason for being on Earth, for when this is accomplished, the lessons in this classroom and the mystical examination is passed.[40]
In his lecture entitled The Psychic Centers – Their Significance and Development he describes the theory behind the raising of Kundalini and how this might be done safely in the context of a balanced life devoted to selfless service.[41]
Sri Aurobindo was the other great authority scholar on Kundalini parallel to Woodroffe, with a somewhat different viewpoint, according to Mary Scott (who is herself a latter-day scholar on Kundalini and its physical basis) and was a member of the Theosophical Society.[42]
Another populariser of the concept of Kundalini among Western readers was Gopi Krishna. His autobiography is entitled Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy in Man.[43] According to one writer his writings influenced Western interest in Kundalini yoga.[44]
In the early 1930s two Italian scholars, Tommaso Palamidessi and Julius Evola, published several books with the intent of re-interpreting alchemy with reference to yoga.[45] Those works had an impact on modern interpretations of Alchemy as a mystical science. In those works, Kundalini is called an “Igneous Power” or “Serpentine Fire”.
Other well-known spiritual teachers who have made use of the idea of Kundalini include Albert Rudolph (Rudi), Harbhajan Singh Yogi, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho), George Gurdjieff,Paramahansa Yogananda, Sivananda Radha Saraswati who produced an English language guide of Kundalini yoga methods, Muktananda, Bhagawan Nityananda, Nirmala Srivastava,Samael Aun Weor.[citation needed]

NEW AGE

Kundalini references may be found in a number of New Age presentations, and is a word that has been adopted by many new religious movements.[46]

PSYCHIATRY

Recently, there has been a growing interest within the medical community to study the physiological effects of meditation, and some of these studies have applied the discipline of Kundalini yoga to their clinical settings.[47][48] Some modern experimental research seeks to establish links between Kundalini practice and the ideas of Wilhelm Reich and his followers.[49]
The popularization of eastern spiritual practices has been associated with psychological problems in the west. Psychiatric literature notes that “since the influx of eastern spiritual practices and the rising popularity of meditation starting in the 1960s, many people have experienced a variety of psychological difficulties, either while engaged in intensive spiritual practice or spontaneously”.[50] 
Among the psychological difficulties associated with intensive spiritual practice we find “Kundalini awakening”, “a complex physio-psychospiritual transformative process described in the yogic tradition”.[50] Researchers in the fields of Transpersonal psychology,[51] and Near-death studies[52][53] have described a complex pattern of sensory, motor, mental and affective symptoms associated with the concept of Kundalini, sometimes called the Kundalini syndrome.
According to the psychiatrist Carl Jung, “… the concept of Kundalini has for us only one use, that is, to describe our own experiences with the unconscious …”[54]
The differentiation between spiritual emergency associated with Kundalini awakening may be viewed as an acute psychotic episode by psychiatrists who are not conversant with the culture. The biological changes of increased P300 amplitudes that occurs with certain yogic practices may lead to acute psychosis. Biological alterations by Yogic techniques may be used to warn people against such reactions.[55]

Dr. Frank Glover Reports 80 to 90% Death Rate From Current Ebola Outbreak In Capitol Hill Hearing, Number Of Cases Rising Exponentially Fast

Via CSPAN – EBOLA: CDC Calls It Apocalyptic! Capitol Hill Hearing on Ebola Outbreak in Africa. (Short 20 min. segment)


Starts at 18: in, longer, more complete close to 3 hours of video, same hearing..

Aug 7, 2014 The House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations holds a 2 p.m. hearing on the Ebola virus, which has killed more than 900 people, according to The Associated Press.
Witnesses include Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Ariel Pablos-Méndez, the assistant administrator for global health at the U.S. Agency for International Development, and representatives from the State Department, Samaritan’s Purse and SIM. Website: http://www.rollcall.com
Currently, the Ebola outbreak is doubling in size about every week to two weeks. According to PBS NewsHour guests, the rate of increase is transitioning from a steady line rising up into an exponential increase that is logarithmic. Assuming this growth curve is not stopped and reversed, the increasing speed of growth will not be limited to Africa. Ebola can and will accelerate out into many countries globally, just as Aids and other superbugs did years ago. But this superbug can and does kill a person in a week, while looking like an ordinary flu for the first 3 to 4 days. 

http://video.pbs.org/viralplayer/2365326586

Any overpopulated mono culture in a crowded environment is an invitation for a super fast spread of some fatal organism, and then a fast, drastic crash of that population. This happens eventually in any mono culture where space is limited, immune systems are depressed, vital energy is reduced, but especially in situations where food and water that is full of toxics, radiation and chemicals is added into the mix in unlimited amounts.

Ebola may be the spark that lights a fire which then rages through the densely packed immune system weakened humanity on a lifeboat called Earth, leaving only a small fraction left over after it done. The denser people are packed together, and the more air travel there is, the higher the risk of some super virus, fungus, bacteria, or other organism taking off and spreading through throughout the world in a lightning fast manner, either accidentally or on purpose.
The terrifying mathematics of Ebola
The risks of Ebola spreading globally are magnified due to over reliance on very limited, expensive, hard to manufacture, long lead time drugs and vaccines, along with a profit motivation behind and over arching everything. 
A public health response with only hospitals and clinics involved is inadequate and takes too long to respond to air transmitted viruses. It would be like trying to stop the spread of the common cold or a flu spreading across America. The rough equivalent would be like trying to put out a house fire with a garden hose, and that is what the ‘experts’ are claiming will work to stop this superbug. The authorities are claiming that they can stop the spread of Ebola to America, and keep it contained in Africa, but those very categorical statements may not pan out as well as they like to believe. 
Aids and Ebola will not be the first or last plagues visited on a crowded global village. There are cheap or free natural and sustainable solutions to both preventing and reversing this and other super bug infections, but if the medical community relies on its profit making system of isolation, drugs and vaccines as the only answer, odds are that the whole medical system will be brought to it’s knees and overwhelmed globally. 
Aids was not contained despite the best global response, and it spread globally. The same will more than likely be true for this superbug. 

Fighting Nature is a losing battle. It helps to work in harmony with Nature.

Everyone has access to natural drug and vaccine free anti viral and anti bacterial modalities, but for some strange reason, the medical industrial complex won’t talk about any of these, and they refuse to test them on Ebola.. Why?

Radioactive Tellurium And Negative Health Effects

Where does radioactive tellerium come from? When a nuclear plant, nuclear explosion or reprocessing facility releases radioactive cesium, this man made element then ‘decays’ into; 

Cesium decays into radioactive gas Xenon 122
Xenon gas decays into radioactive Iodine 122
Iodine 122 decays into Tellerium 122
http://periodictable.com/Isotopes/052.122/index2.p.full.dm.html

Of course, all of this can happen inside of the human body, and it does, if any radioactive element is inhaled or ingested into the body.

TELLERIUM RESULTS FROM DECAY OF RADIOACTIVE XENON GAS 

Xenon-135 has a 2.6 x 106 barns neutron absorption cross section. It is produced directly by some fissions, but is more commonly a product of the tellurium-135 decay chain shown below
The fission yield (g) for xenon-135 is about 0.3%, while g for tellurium-135 is about 6%.13552Teb19.0 sec13553Ib6.57 hr13554Xeb9.10 hr13555Csb2.3×106 yr13556Ba (stable) The half-life for tellurium-135 is so short compared to the other half-lives that it can be assumed that iodine-135 is produced directly from fission. Iodine-135 is not a strong neutron absorber, but decays to form the neutron poison xenon-135. Ninety-five percent of all the xenon-135 produced comes from the decay of iodine-135. Therefore, the half-life of iodine-135 plays an important role in the amount of xenon-135 present.

http://nuclearpowertraining.tpub.com/h1019v2/css/h1019v2_59.htm

The longest half life of one of the telleriums is 2.2 Septillion years, which is a just a wee bit longer than the average human lifespan.

TELLURIUM HEALTH EFFECTS

Inhalation: “Drowsiness. Dry mouth. Metal taste. Headache. Garlic odour. Nausea.”

Short-term exposure: “The aerosol of this substance irritates the eyes and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the liver and central nervous system. Exposure may result in garlic-like breath. Medical observation is indicated. Ingestion: Abdominal pain. Constipation. Vomiting.

Solar storm forecast for 9/11 through 9/13/2014
Just In: US gov’t issues highest level warning for geomagnetic storm currently impacting Earth — Potential to reach ‘Extreme’ category on NOAA scale; “Complete collapse” of grid systems possible

Another reporter talks about today’s solar storm, which makes it sound a lot smaller and having much less effect, which is a good thing…

An older Fox news reports that a solar storm could knock out the electrical grid in the US. This is a potential Katrina from outer space according to Michio Kaku. We need to harden the grid in order to prepare. In 1859 a huge storm hit that sent sparks out of telegraph lines. Without hardening the grid, a huge 1859 type of solar storm would paralyze potentially whole countries or potentially the entire world with months or years of power outages, and it would also result in nuclear plant meltdowns in areas affected, due to the chaos and lack of reliable long term power needed for nuclear plants.

CONSEQUENCES OF HUGE SOLAR STORM THAT KNOCKS OUT TRANSFORMERS AND ELECTRICAL GRID FOR MONTHS OR YEARS

What If the Biggest Solar Storm on Record Happened Today?
Repeat of 1859 Carrington Event would devastate modern world, experts say.
In the comments section below the article above, Steven Starr, the head scientist with the Physicians for Social Responsibility group, explains what the above article and many others like it fail to even address or mention:
Steven Starr Jan 16, 2013 “Another disaster-in-waiting would be the permanent loss of off-site power to nuclear power plants, which are not designed to function on a long-term basis using electricity produced by back-up on-site generators. Reactors *must* keep their cooling systems (for both the reactor core and spent fuel ponds) in operation, even when the reactor is shut down. Take a look at Fukushima to see what happens when you fail to do so.
Imagine dozens of nuclear power plants all frantically attempting to provide on-site electric power to keep their cooling systems going for months on end. Most reactors store only about 6 days worth of diesel fuel required to run the massive diesel generators that would provide such back-up power. IF the diesel generators were capable of running continuously for months on end (they are not designed or expected to do so), there would still be the matter of trucking fuel to the plants to keep them running.
One step we could immediately take to reduce this danger is to remove older spent fuel rods from cooling ponds and put them into Hardened On-Site Storage (HOSS). Two-thirds of the spent fuel rods sitting in US reactor cooling ponds could now be removed and put into HOSS; doing this would greatly reduce the possible impact of a loss of coolant/cooling accident at a spent fuel pool. See http://www.psr.org/resources/principles-for-safeguarding-1.html
Another scenario similar to the Carrington Event, also not currently addressed or considered, is the destruction of unprotected integrated circuits in the control systems of nuclear power plants by Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) produced by a high altitude nuclear detonation. Such a detonation over the East Coast of the US would hammer dozens of nuclear power plants. Imagine 20 or 30 Fukushimas occurring simultaneously in the US. Another little problem we haven’t gotten around to dealing with.”
Steven Starr – Senior Scientist, Physicians for Social Responsibility

Bottom line, if humanity wants to make it into any kind of future worth living in, all electrical grids need to be hardened globally, to resist solar storms, and/or all nuclear plants need to be shut down and that fuel needs to be put into dry cask storage with no power needed to keep it cool.

Life In The Decontaminated Death Zones of Fukushima Japan: Up Close And Personal Radiation Evacuee Story

Part I above

Part II, click on link below, then start at 14:55 into it;
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3z0rC5Ua_w&

This report was broadcasted on October, 18 and 24 by the german TV-station WDR. WDR is a part of the public channel ARD.

INTERVIEWING RESIDENTS IN RADIATION DECONTAMINATED AREAS; WHAT IS LIFE LIKE THERE? 

Their Japan-correspondent went to Minamisoma for a week and talked to people there about their lives after the Fukushima catastrophe. He spoke with residents and children living in Fukushima province area ‘decontaminated’ homes, schools and communities. As you will see, life in a ‘decontaminated’ area is not what you might think or believe. Decontamination is not simply wiping up dust and everything is back to normal. Life is much, much different from ‘normal’ even in a supposedly decontaminated and safe area.

GOVERNMENT FORCING PEOPLE TO MOVE BACK INTO FUKUSHIMA AREA

Fukushima News 4/1/14: Evacuation Order Lifted For Fukushima province ; “Decontamination?” Complete In 3 Towns
Japan is quickly moving to open up all but the worst radiation contaminated affected Fukushima disaster evacuation zones. The goal is to declare them to all be safe and normal to live in. 
According to Arnie Gunderson, in the above video, residents are being forced to move back into Fukushima area ‘decontaminated’ towns, or lose their cash stipends. Once everyone either moves back or loses the government cash payout, when will the payouts stop completely, for everyone?

What will be the long term negative health effects of living in radiation contaminated areas, even if the government and nuclear ‘experts’ say that these areas are ‘safe’?


At this MIT meeting, a nuclear expert says that no one really knows what the long term negative health effects of chronic and cumulative man made radiation exposure is. The nuclear expert says that all of their studies on negative radiation effects are based on being exposed for about 1 minute to a specific radiation dose, such as an x-ray for example. 

FUKUSHIMA UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL – YUMI KIKUCHI

Fukushima Up Close and Personal; An Interview with Yumi Kikuchi;
by Ecological Options Network. www.Eon3EMFblog.net
Former successful bond trader-tuned-anti-nuclear-activist – and now Fukushima radiation refugee – Yumi Kikuchi talks about her experience of the earthquake in Japan, her analysis of the industry/government cover-up of the true impacts of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, her organizing of evacuation efforts from the Fukushima radiation contaminated zones to Okinawa, and her family’s relocation from rural farming in Japan to a new life urban farming in Hawaii.
Fukushima province has 2 million people living in it. Yumi talks about how the government decided NOT to evacuate due to the impossible situation of trying to move and relocate 2 million residents. This decision is driving everything else after that, so now the official government position is that these areas are ok to live in and people can move back in.

SACRIFICED WORKERS AND RESIDENTS FORCED TO LIVE, EAT AND WORK IN RADIATION CONTAMINATED AREAS

At 19: in, she talks about how the former maximum allowed yearly radiation levels for residents in Japan before the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster was; 
Residents                                                                     1 m/Sv per year
Before 3/11, nuclear workers allowed max of          50 m/Sv per year
After Fukushima workers max raised to                  250 m/Sv per year
Then Fukushima workers max was raised again     500 m/Sv per year
At 20: in
Children before 3/11 allowed max of                          1 m/Sv per year
Children in decontaminated areas now allowed        20 m/Sv per year
She says this 20 m/Sv amount for children is ‘deadly’ (because children are much more sensitive to the same radiation dose, when compared to adults)

JAPANESE PEOPLE ENCOURAGED BY GOVERNMENT TO EAT LOCAL FUKUSHIMA AREA RAISED FOOD, MILK AND FISH

People in supposedly decontaminated areas are ‘recommended’ to eat only local foods grown on farms in Fukushima. This official government and mass media position is official, in order to support the local farmers, fishermen and merchants who sell these items. 
22: Another policy decision made early on with the approval of the IAEA and nuclear experts, was to ‘burn’ all radiation contaminated waste from Fukushima areas, by trucking it all over Japan to incinerators. This spreads radiation all over Japan, and it gets into everyone, especially the children. 
24: Two huge plutonium facility projects cost Japan 2 Trillion Yen each, for a total of 4 Trillion Yen so far. These are the biggest Japanese government projects existing in Japan, and they both focus on creating plutonium from the nuclear waste left over from the 50 plus Japanese nuclear power plants. Both of these huge projects are boondoggles and failed completely. Rokashu is one of the most highly radiation contaminated areas on the planet. Japan already has 45 tons of plutonium stored, and the primary use for this is to make nuclear bombs, (despite Japan being a pacifist nation per it’s Constitution, largely because it was on the receiving end of two nuclear bombs dropped on 2 cities).

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/low-level-nuclear-radiation-in-food-and.html

JAPAN HAS 45 TONS OF PLUTONIUM STOCKPILED; WHY? 

25: For the Hiroshima bomb, it only took 8 to 10 kilograms of plutonium. So how many nuclear bombs can this 45 tons of plutonium make? Japanese people are against any nuclear bombs, but they have been convinced to use ‘peaceful’ uses of nuclear power, because it is ‘good’ for you. But now people are realizing that even the peaceful use of nuclear energy is bad for you. The best way to move forward is to shut them all down and switch to a zero nuclear future. 
26: Between the US and Japan, there are 160 nuclear plants. That is a LOT of nuclear power plants. So turning them all off and going for a sustainable, zero nuclear, zero carbon future offers future generations a lot of hope and a good future. Japan is no longer safe to live in, unless it turns off all nuclear completely, then I will move back.

EVACUATING CHILDREN, PREGNANT WOMEN AND INFANTS OUT OF HARMS WAY, RUNS INTO OPPOSITION BY GOVERNMENT AND NUCLEAR INDUSTRY

30: We evacuated out of Fukushima on March 13th, down to Okinawa, and we wanted to go further than Tokyo, because we knew it was not far enough, and that radiation would reach it very quickly from Fukushima (which it did). She worked on organizing to get pregnant women, infants and young children out of Fukushima to ‘safe’ areas such as Okinawa, where she had lots of friends, along with a team of other people she knew. She formed a group and held a press conference on March 17th, to tell the public about this, and is still offering this service to anyone who wants it, even today. 
31: I am really afraid now of contamination in food, 8 months in. What happened after we started is that we were attacked and the media told people to not trust us, because we were not based on scientific evidence and had no nuclear experts agreeing with the need to evacuate. The official government position was that there was no need to evacuate at all, as long as you stay inside home. 
32: The official government announcements (even to this day) tell people to eat local Fukushima grown food, despite the Fukushima plant melt downs. Local food is good, but not in radiation contaminated areas. Eating local Fukushima food is deadly. I was talking about that, and was attacked for that position as well. Eating Fukushima food will cause damage later on, and yes fishermen and farmers will lose their work, but I was fighting my own government and people to save lives. 
33: After Chernobyl, many people were evacuated within days, (and large exclusion zones were set up), but after Fukushima almost nothing was done, and only a small evacuation zone was established and people were left in radiation contaminated areas. People were told that Fukushima originated man made radiation is good for your health and this area is ‘safe’ to live in. Many people believe this (lie) because they want to stay there. I do too, if I did not know these things based on my own study, if I was told it was safe. I already know too much.

WHY I BECAME AN ACTIVIST AND DEFINING MOMENT IN LIFE, LIVING THE DREAM INSTEAD OF THE NIGHTMARE

34: In 2006, I had Dr. Sternglass come over to Japan, and we translated all of his studies and we knew what radiation did to you. We worked really hard to stop Rokoshu plant, the biggest radiation contamination on Earth. No one paid attention. It did not change anything. We have learned not to stay close to a nuclear plant that is leaking. 
Uranium Mining, Enrichment, Nuclear Fuel Chain, Open Air Testing, Fracking
35: After launching Connecting Light, we came to Hawaii for two weeks. We ended up going back to Japan, but left the children in Hawaii with friends. My goal is make Hawaii more sustainable. My near death experience on 3/11 woke me up, to realize that you can die anytime. Anything can happen; an earthquake, a car accident, or disease. 
36: It made me realize; I want to live my dream, and my husband agreed. I finished my work commitments in Japan, and then move to Hawaii with only 4 boxes. We bought a home with a lawn, and now it is being converted into a large garden, and people are really shocked and amazed, because it is in a residential area. I am harvesting vegetables and fruits already from this garden. In Japan, we had rice, mushrooms, vegetables and more, a highly self sufficient lifestyle. 
37: with 1/3 acre, my goal is to create a self sufficient garden here too, because in a tropical area like this it is possible to grow fruits and vegetables all year.

WORKING ON GOAL OF SELF SUFFICIENCY

44: Our goal is to be self sufficient in food and energy, by creating our own energy from the sun. In our community the goal is to have community gardens, exchange food, seeds and more. 
45; The kids are eating much more sea vegetables for the iodine, to counter the radiation spikes that are happening here in Hawaii. There is radiation in the milk. The whole world is already radiation contaminated. What we can do is to eat healthy and strengthen our immune systems. Do what you love, so that your passion in harnessed. If you are living your passion, you have much more lifeforce. I really feel passionate about my work, and I eat from my own garden. This food I grow may have radiation in it, I don’t know, but this green fresh food is also good for fighting the radiation effects. Foods with color in them give you so many phytochemicals. 
48: Hawaii has higher radiation than Japan. Kona has 30 – 40 CPM, and Tokyo has only 18CPM.  Radiationnetwork.com . What is the point of us being here? I have become a raw foodist, and eat so many bananas, and want a tropical area to grow my own fresh raw foods. I won’t buying anything from the supermarket, just local farmers or my own garden. 
49: Hawaii imports 85% of it’s food from other nations. 90% of it’s energy is imported oil. If we become self sufficient, that solves these problems, right?

SUMMARY

There is no solution for decontaminating lands or waters that have been radiation contaminated. Hopefully, humanity will learn the hard lessons that come from ignoring invisible radioactive poisons and shut down all nuclear plants in time, before the Carrington Event happens. If that happens and all plants are not shut down, it will be the end of all life on Earth. 

Planet Earth 911 Emergencies And Global Threats

The lessons right now are hard, and they will get harder from here on in, if people do not pay attention and start making massive, fast changes in all areas of life; energy, food, health, as Yumi is doing and being an example of. Transporting food 5,000 miles and burning 1,000 to 10,000 calories of oil products to get 1 calorie of food will have increasingly severe consequences. Burning nuclear fuel to generate steam is insane, when the sun can do the same thing for free, with no nuclear waste, no nuclear accidents and it is free forever.

2 Men Being Sued By Japanese Government For Protesting Nuclear Power Restarts, Citizens Sue Govt

The video above provides evidence of massive 100,000 to 200,000 Person Historical Anti-nuclear Protests – 2012, ending in front of prime ministers office. Despite this MASSIVE showing of public anger and support for shutting down all nuclear plants, there was a complete media blackout, and there was no mention of this on any news media outlets or TV channels, other than 1 minor reference on one news channel, consisting of a very short snippet, with no numbers included.)

COMPLETE GLOBAL MEDIA BLACKOUT REGARDING FUKUSHIMA, OR ANTI NUCLEAR ANYTHING

Despite a massive Live Demonstration in Tokyo, Japan, there was no mention of it in the Japan Times = nothing. NHK News; very short, no size of crowd mentioned, reference to twitter posts only, no pictures or video at all. 
No other mass media news outlet mentioned this or other protests against nuclear power anywhere in the world. The mass media did not and still does not cover this or other anti nuclear protests. The narrator says this lack of news coverage about what is REALLY happening, reminds him of living in a Communist dictatorship, where the news is tightly censored and controlled by a few people at the top. 
It is important to understand that protests of any kind are VERY uncommon in Japan. People in Japan are polite, told to get along, and not to resist what is happening as a general rule. They let the leaders do whatever they think is best, even if they disagree.

The protests since 3/11 are the first time in history that a massive uprising like this has taken place in Japan historically, yet the news did not even cover this first time ever in history event. This same situation exists all around the world. Protests and actions against the nuclear industry are not covered, but lone pro nuclear ‘experts’ are given front and center state, plus extensive news coverage on all mass media stations. Why is this?

Journalism at it’s core is coverage of BOTH sides of an issue, and letting people decide what they believe from there, after debates and discussions. The debate and discussions no longer happen. News is no longer about air both sides of an issue equally when it comes to nuclear anything. 


Protest marches in Japan, demanding permanent closure of all nuclear plants in Japan.



2014 – Japanese citizens sue, saying “No!” to restart of nuclear power plants in Japan. On March 20th 2014, Japanese citizens gathered at the Osaka District Courthouse at the final session of the injunction lawsuit (filed in 2012) against the restart of Fukui Prefecture’s Ohi nuclear reactors units 3 and 4.

2 MEN SUED BY JAPANESE GOVERMENT FOR OCCUPYING PUBLIC SPACE AND PROTESTING 

On March, 2013, two men who are protesting the restart of nuclear plants in Japan were sued by the government due to occupying the national ground without any permission. Taro Fuchigami and Taichi Masakiyo are defendants.
Don’t people have a right to protest? Why is the government suing citizens for a basic human right to protest?

5,000 PEOPLE SUE TEPCO FOR DUMPING HIGH LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTE INTO PACIFIC

Complainants for Criminal Prosecution of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster are suing TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co.) for allowing high level radioactive liquids to go into the Pacific Ocean, directly from multiple nuclear reactors. 
They already tried to get criminal charge against TEPCO, Dec 18 in 2013, but the lawsuit was dismissed by the court without any hearing.  Now there are over 5,000 citizens who are plaintiffs for this second accusation. The nuclear industry does not care about either damaging the environment, contaminating communities, or causing radiation damage to people. They also do not care about radiation contamination of the Pacific Ocean.

Here’s their English statements.

17 LAWSUITS GOING IN JAPAN AGAINST NUCLEAR INDUSTRY

Many victims of the Fukushima nuclear accident have been suing Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and the Japanese government in courts. According to the Tokyo Shimbun (Tokyo News Paper) April 7th, 2014, there are 17 lawsuits of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident in the district courts and there are about 6,800 plaintiffs in Japan. The movement of suing TEPCO in courts is spreading nationwide now.

JAPANESE PEOPLE ARE SUING TO GET THEIR LIVES, HOMES, PROPERTY AND HEALTH BACK TO ‘NORMAL’ 

One lawsuit that has been filed is called “Put Livelihood and Home Back” lawsuit. Plaintiffs have asked TEPCO and the Japanese government to restore everything back to the original condition. In court, plaintiffs are asking for decontamination down to 0.4 micro Sievert per hour air radiation dose, which is the same amount as was found before the accident. Against this claim, TEPCO argued if they decontaminate populated areas that are currently over 1 m/Sv per year, it would cost about $5,130,000,000 Billion Yen, according to the report of the Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. If TEPCO accepted the plaintiffs’ claim, it would cost much more.

How well is this ‘decontamination’ going? View the video to see the real life results of a decontaminated area.

THE REALITY OF DECONTAMINATION EFFORTS IS THAT IT IS A FAILURE

Realistically, it is not possible to decontaminate lands and property down to the level that existed before the 3/11 mega nuclear disaster in Japan. In Soviet Russia, the government tried to ‘decontaminate’ around Chernobyl, using 1 million people and the massive military that Soviet Russia had back then, and they failed for the most part.

The one success that the pro nuclear industry in The Soviet Union achieved by sacrificing the lives of 1 million ‘decontamination’ workers was that the Chernobyl nuclear plant was kept open and operating, since only one unit blew up. Workers still travel through the radioactive contaminated exclusion zone to go to work at the Chernobyl nuclear plant, located right next to the blown up, melted out skeleton that is what remains.

The huge Chernobyl exclusion zones are the result and aftermath of this massive decontamination effort. No one can live or work in these large sacrificed radioactive wasteland areas, where radiation is too high and too dangerous to even enter and visit.

Radioactive Contamination Of Land And Homes – Decontamination: Losing the Sheltering Trees via A Green Road @AGreenRoad
Japanese citizens have been led to believe that everything can be ‘cleaned up’ and decontaminated by the government and nuclear industry, so that they can move back to their ancestral homeland, houses, occupations, villages, sacred places, and farms. They are being asked to ‘wait’ as this decontamination happens. The reality is that this cleanup is not possible.

Psychic Numbing Definition, PTSD, Neuroscience, Religion, War, Nuclear Denial Disorder, And A Call To Awareness, Return To The Vortex

Have you ever felt numb or blank when someone shared some really horrible news with you? Have you ever tried to discuss some large global issue that is painful or difficult to speak about, and experienced the other person getting a very blank expression on their face, walking away, or responding that nothing can be done, so why bother talking about it? Did you know this reaction is completely normal?

This very frustrating, flat and emotionless reaction to seemingly bad news is called ‘psychic numbing’. As a global village, much or most of humanity is subject to this psychological state either temporarily or permanently. There is so much bad news going on all around us, on a daily basis,  and the amount of information flowing towards the average person is overwhelming. The combination of information overload, bad news, stress and not knowing what to do with the flood of negative emotions that can come up, often leaves people feeling completely completely helpless and powerless. Rather than experience emotions or feel pain, it is easier to avoid feeling anything.  This article goes into the issue of psychic numbing, discusses what causes it and how to move beyond it.

Six-minute documentary overview of Dr. Slovic’s research on psychic numbing and genocide. Produced in the Spring of 2008 by Desiree Aflleje, Emese Foss, and Jon Palfreman at the University of Oregon.

DEFINITION

Wikipedia; “Psychic numbing is a tendency for individuals or societies to withdraw attention from past experiences that were traumatic, or from future threats that are perceived to have massive consequences but low probability.[1][2] Psychic numbing can be a response to threats as diverse as financial and economic collapse, nuclear terrorism, pandemics caused by genetic engineering, and global warming.[3] 
It is also important to consider the neuroscience behind the phenomenon, which gives validation to the observable human behavior.[4][5] The term has evolved to include both societies as well as individuals, so psychic numbing can be viewed from either a collectivist or an individualist standpoint. Individualist psychic numbing is found in victims of rape and people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.[6]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychic_numbing

HISTORY

The original concept of psychic numbing argued by Robert Jay Lifton was that it manifests itself collectively. This means that a society or a culture adapts this withdrawn attention outlook and collectively applies it to current issues.[1]
Robert Jay Lifton: “Beyond Psychic Numbing: A Call to Awareness”
Lifton’s 4 Focal Points:
Hiroshima as a text for “psychic numbing”
Nuclear Illusions
What are nuclear weapons doing to us? (Nuclear fundamentalism)
Hope for the future
Lifton’s main area of focus was the Hiroshima bombing during World War II. He broke up his analysis of the bombing into psychological stages that spread at the societal level. Lifton’s article, “Beyond Psychic Numbing: A Call to Awareness”,[1] addressed a concern that was new at the time: nuclear warfare. He argued now that there is a single weapon in the world that can cause so much damage, humans need to be more alert and confront the images of nuclear power and an ever increasing nuclear actuality.[1][2] There is a societal understanding now that countries can create nuclear weapons; this led to Lifton’s coining of the term “nuclear fundamentalism”.[1]
All these are argued by Lifton to be beneficial at times, however rather inadequate for helping people feel better about the ubiquity of nuclear weapons and potential warfare. There needs to be a sense of control[1][2][3][6] in order to comprehend the consequences of nuclear warfare as well as strategies to combat the psychological grip it has on individuals.
Lifton’s final argument regarding hope for the future is that society must take action. He uses Vietnam veterans as a reference point.[1][6] He has worked with them before and noticed partial changes, while he agrees this is good, society must adapt an awareness that aims to teach and educate as opposed to avoiding and withdrawing from the potential threats to survival.[1][2][6]

NEUROSCIENCE

Psychic numbing has been associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because they share the same attributes of withdrawal and behavioral changes when presented with a stimuli that triggers a reminder of the traumatic event or with a very intense neutral stimuli.[4] The observable emotional response is not enough to understand the concept of psychic numbing. Therefore, neuroscience and the biological activity that occurs within the brain is employed to give people a better understanding of the thought process of individuals who engage in psychic numbing.
Studies have also focused on the habituation of the rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC).[7]The rACC is part of the limbic system, which is responsible for emotional processing. It is hypothesized that the rACC determines the, “correct allocation of attention based resources to emotionally aversive stimuli.”.[7] This means it may play an active role in identifying important behavioral responses necessary to comprehend the consequences of the aversive stimuli. 
The limbic system also includes areas that are important for memory consolidation. The relationship between all the areas in the limbic system is an area of interest for psychic numbing because it encapsulates two factors that contribute to the phenomenon: emotions and memory.[7] These studies are also a good paradigm for the understanding of psychic numbing because they considers sustained aversive material and how the brain reacts in a habitual manner in an effort to remove the underlying emotional content.[4][5][7]
Neuropsychophysiology[edit]
Cortisol helps regulate the stress response via the negative feedback loop, which are activated when a person is subjected to specific situations that trigger the relationship between the emotionally charged memories of the traumatic event and the observable autonomic responses.[8]
Stress can also be considered a brain-body reaction due to external or internal cues[8] this can include the environment as well as memory. The areas of the brain that communicate with one another are the prefrontal cortex, amygdala, hippocampus, nucleus accumbens, and thehypothalamus. Through a series of feedback processes, the release of specific neurotransmitters as well as neuromodulators occurs.[8]

Norepinephrine (NE) is released by the Locus coeruleus, it is then transferred to the limbic system where much of the memory consolidation and fight or flight responses are facilitated.
Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) is released from the anterior pituitary, which triggers the release ofglucocorticoids from the adrenals. The chronic exposure to stress affects organisms that deal with daily activities and it also interferes with one’s coping mechanisms.
Once the HPA axis is activated, it triggers an increase in glucocorticoids. Once these hormones cross the blood–brain barrier, they interact with other neurotransmitters and change the brain’s chemistry as well as structure.[8]
The process of habituation is important to consider because it is a prevalent variable in the phenomenon of psychic numbing. The constant exposure a society or individual has to a prolonged and sustained aversive stimuli, the emotional magnitude that the stimuli has decreases greatly over time to where it becomes unnoticeable to those who have been surrounded by it for a long period of time. This type of response is seen in Vietnam veterans and rape victims who suffer from PTSD.[6]
Additionally, studies describe the importance of the rACC and the cingulate cortex for comprehension and the feeling of a painful stimulus.[5] Taiwanese and American researchers recorded brain-wave readings from participants as the researchers observed body parts pricked with a pin, or dabbed with a Q-tip. Half of the subjects were physicians and the other half was a control group. The control group showed clear differences in his or her reactions to the pin-prick in comparison to the Q-tip. 
The physicians, who previously had experience managing sickness and pain, did not. The authors of the study theorized that the physicians unconsciously numbed their reaction to the pain of the pin-prick due to his or her profession. This may be a beneficial result because physicians need to block out the pain response and use more cognitive resources necessary for being of assistance in a time of need.[5] 
This further suggests the individual differences people have in regards to psychic numbing and the deviation away from more tragic accounts of rape and PTSD. This type of desensitization is not independent of the participant’s lives, instead it is a result of years of experience woven into his or her daily lives, resulting in a numbed response. Figures of areas of the control group’s brains showed activation in the rACC, and the physician’s brains did not, suggesting there was already habituation.

CONCEPTUALIZATIONS

Normative graphs of the value of life saving
The original view of psychic numbing dealt with human extinction and the mass response to potentially life-threatening scenarios. Lifton argued the worry for these events was low and therefore generated an equally low probability of occurrence point of view.[1] This repeated exposure makes man numb to the possibility that an event of that nature can occur. However, when asked to recall the probability that mass extinction will occur, people have a tendency to think counter-intuitively and rate the probability as high when it is in fact low and behaviorally respond opposite to his or her rating.[2]
Additionally, much of the individualist view comes from studying the behavioral traits of people who suffer from PTSD. Focus groups, clinical cases, as well as religion play a crucial role in one’s ability to cope with the stress of traumatic stimuli.[6] Many studies have been conducted that address the value of these therapeutic interventions as well as their efficacy. There is a strong connection to depersonalization, emotional numbing, as well as dissociation from one’s identity. This shows the shift of psychic numbing from a collectivist view to an individualistic view.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychic_numbing

COLLECTIVIST

Robert Jay Lifton spearheaded the psychic numbing movement and his concentration was on a much larger scale. Psychic numbing is about the way a culture or society withdraws from issues that would otherwise be too overwhelming for the human mind to comprehend. In this respect, psychic numbing is a societal reaction to impending doom, chaos, and ultimately mankind’s extinction.[1]
Paul Slovic, a prominent psychologist in the realm of risk, maintains the original interpretation posited by Lifton. Slovic’s article, “Psychic Numbing and Mass Atrocity”, returns to the collectivist model and most notably confronts the value of saving a human’s life. The figures to the right denote both arguments for the hypothesized value of saving a human’s life as well as the true value of saving a human’s life established through Slovic’s empirical research.[1][2] 
Slovic introduced the concept of psychophysical numbing, which is the diminished sensitivity to the value of life and an inability to appreciate loss.[2] Essentially, the proportion of lives saved is more important than the number of lives saved.[2] One of Slovic’s arguments for this outcome is that people suffer from innumeracy and cannot comprehend the emotional connotation associated with large numbers. 
The threshold, as stated by Slovic, where people cannot comprehend the emotional magnitude of the loss of life is two, as shown in the figure.[2]
Graph of the value of saving a human life
Slovic also points to Weber’s law, which states the difference between two stimuli is proportional to the magnitude of the stimuli. Additionally, Weber’s law focuses on the just-noticeable difference between the two stimuli. Slovic addressed Weber’s law from a different context – he considered the magnitude and value of a human life. Slovic took Weber’s law and incorporated prospect theory, which is decision making based on potential gains and losses, not the actual final outcome. Slovic found that when prospect theory and Weber’s law are analyzed in regards to human life, the value of saving human lives is greater for a smaller tragedy than for a larger one.[2]
These are all considered collectivist views of psychic numbing because they encapsulate a general theory of mind held by the majority of citizens in a society. Additionally, these views remain consistent with the original concept of which collective avoidance and attention withdrawal becomes the active state of mind in regards to potential threats of mass extinction.[1][2]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychic_numbing

INDIVIDUALIST – PTSD

Psychic numbing, as it shifts away from the collectivist view, is a common characteristic of people who suffer from PTSD. A general definition of psychic numbing is a diminished response to the external world.[9] 

There are three elements that attribute to psychic numbing:[9]

Loss of interest in activity
detachment from others
restricted range of affect
These two mechanisms promote the inability to engage emotionally with a traumatic memory (acceptance), thus impairing the process of recovery.[9][10]
Susan Gill bridges the disciplines of social psychology and neuropsychology in her analysis of psychic numbing by explaining that there are notable behavioral changes, the most typical trait is being zombie-like and in a “dead-zone“.[11]
The relationship between being overwhelmed and completely shutting down. The state of being overwhelmed is different than complete shut-down. Overwhelmed responses follow moderate to prolonged stressful states and result in an active effort to regain control.[11]
The neurochemical states associated with dissociative behavior are not metabolized, that is they become perpetual and frozen in time, which causes the deviation from normal behavior. The very anatomy of the brain can be manipulated under extreme cases of psychic numbing. The neurochemical reactions fail to metabolize and result in lack of synaptic connections and neuronal firing with no dendritic connections. There is also a loop of the same information that fails to connect with other areas of the brain, which results in the inability to get out of the “dead-zone”.[9][11]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychic_numbing

RELIGION

Religion is also considered to be an internalized coping mechanism. The role of religious values in coping with life-threatening illnesses is another individualistic trait that people use to cope with the behavioral side-effects associated with the diseases.[12] Depersonalization is a very prominent behavioral trait associated with cancer patients. Findings show that people with cancer cope no worse than non-cancer patients.[12][13] 
Cancer patients tend to blunt his or her experiences as a means of handling a painful reality. Avoidance and denial are typical tendencies of psychic numbing.[13] Cancer patients also report a self-distancing mechanism, and take on a third-person perspective as a means of dealing with the life-threatening disease.[12] It is argued that putting one’s life within a framework of religion is a very important part of the coping process. 
This religious framework helps the patients understand that some things are out of one’s control. As discussed earlier, a lack of control over one’s stressful stimuli generates a degree of psychic numbing. However, by putting his or her life-threatening disease within a religious framework takes the mystery out of the disease and adds a sense of control.[12] As discussed earlier, the perceived sense of control as well as actual control are important contributors to adequately coping with psychic numbing.[12][13]
As described earlier, research on psychic numbing has suggested that people who become desensitized to suffering may be more adept in dealing with an upsetting or dangerous situation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychic_numbing

NUCLEAR DENIAL DISORDER 

Many individuals fail to react affectively to the overwhelming threat of annihilation by nuclear warfare, and in 1987 Thomas C. Wear termed this nuclear denial disorder, a type of psychic numbing. It involves the over-use of a denial defense mechanism, and “an apathetic business-as-usual attitude toward the threat of nuclear annihilation“.[14]

SadieDog September 10, 2014 “Yukon, you are not alone. Most people can’t break out of their programming enough to care. Between TV, crappy food, a totally fake, scripted and controlled media and all types of poisons and toxins hitting us everyday, it’s not surprising. Add in the fact that the truth in all forms has been marginalized to something that is considered only when it is beneficial, not as a rule or something to strive for.”
Dr. Goodheart “Truth tellers are attacked and labeled as fearmongers, conspiracy theorists, or alarmists. Many lose their jobs, can’t get any more work, are jailed or disappeared; such as Snowden, and many other whistleblowers.. It takes a brave soul to stand up and tell the truth, whether one is saying the Earth is round when everyone knows the Earth is flat, or saying that the Carrington Event will destroy all life on the planet if nuclear plants are not turned off in time.

Psychic Numbing From Nuclear Dread

A reading about nuclear war from DOLORES PARK by Michael Lyons, describing how nuclear dread spreads to other areas of the brain and life
http://youtu.be/JFRcCqlLcX8

Via RobG September 10, 2014 In a recent interview with ABC (Australia), Helen Caldicott was asked how she copes with the stress that comes from being so aware of all these (nuclear) horrors. Caldicott replied that she does not have “the psychic numbing that most people have” (about 3 mins in), and later on in the interview states that what keeps her going is that she truly believes she can change things:
Even in the middle of a nuclear war, nuclear accident, ship sinking or other disaster, people refuse to ‘believe’ it is happening, and stay in a state of denial, disbelief or apathy. This state of being is very common, and most people stay ignorant, asleep and/or in denial, rather than face a painful and horrific reality. This state of trying to be or see things as staying absolutely normal in the middle of a crisis situation is called the ‘normalcy bias’.

WAR AND PSYCHIC NUMBING

Violence and psychic numbing are intertwined and related. The more a nation or person is numbed emotionally and dumbed down mentally, the more violence and/or never ending war seems like the solution. PBS and Bill Moyer talk about this, via the following link..

Transcript: Bill Moyers Interviews Robert Jay Lifton
http://www.pbs.org/now/transcript/transcript_lifton.html

War also causes more psychic numbing (PTSD) as a direct result of being involved in it and killing people, or watching others being killed. Camillo “Mac” Bica, Ph.D., coordinator of Veterans For Peace Long Island, speaks to a class studying the Vietnam War at the Flushing International High School, in the video above.
One potential way to come out of a state of psychic numbing is to start a dream journal, talk, write, blog, do a diary, draw, paint or express via movement the feelings and thoughts coming up. 12 step groups are one way to approach and deal with psychic numbing that can then lead into one of dozens of addictions. 

TV, MEDIA AND PSYCHIC NUMBING

Much or most of the mass media and most large corporate enterprises are concerned with keeping people in a state of apathy, fear, behaving like powerless victims. TV consists largely of psychic numbing. Many people use TV and junk food as a way to escape reality and real feelings. TV is a fake, virtual reality. Because a person can use TV to avoid dealing with or talking about painful situations, it is easy to get in a habit of being hypnotized by the box on the wall, and avoid or deny reality.

It is not easy to ‘wake up’, feel all of the emotions, (many of them are painful), become intuitive, vulnerable, open but aware, and act from the heart while feeling the love that is part of reality.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO WAKE UP?

The movie ‘The Matrix’ was a science fiction story set in the future, where the Matrix had taken over, and people were not even aware of it. Almost everyone was plugged into the Matrix, which they thought was the only reality. But a small group of people ‘woke up’ and were not under the spell of the Matrix, and worked on getting others to wake up as well.

Abraham Hicks – Speaks about Depression and Anxiety

In this video Abraham speaks about Depression and anxiety. If you are going through a really bad spell in your life or if you do get depressed at times. Listen to this video. 
Bottom line, if we look at the larger problems only, there is no solution and no action. But if look without judgement, fear, blame, shame or guilt at the larger problems, just staying open and curious, and then ask, what can I do, an answer will come. There are many solutions, and many things that can be done, especially if one is not trapped in a state of denial, normalcy bias or psychic numbing.

Spiritual, Interfaith, Consciousness; How To Create Heaven On Earth
The answers are always there. Your answer will involve an action that can be taken by one person, on a local or personal level, which will make a difference in some small way. Combine those small actions and one ends up with a massive change on a global level. This is the rule for getting beyond psychic numbing, no matter where or how it shows up. As Mother Teresa puts it; 

“If I look at the mass I will never act. If I look at the one, I will.”

Mother Teresa
Stay in your heart, feel your feelings, and go deeper into them. Talk about your feelings, and own them, without judgement, blame, guilt, or shame. Ask what you can do personally to make a difference, and the answer will be there, if not instantly, then very soon. Once you get the answer, act on it. Repeat the process. Another action will present itself. Get involved, stay active and be aware of when the temptation to go into psychic numbing, denial or normalcy bias rears it’s head. Every person is important. Never give up.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh, where have you been, my blue eyed son?

Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?

I’ve stumbled around the sides of three exploded Nuclear reactors

I’ve walked an crawled through their broken crooked pipe ways

I’ve stepped in the middle of sizzling Plutonium puddles

I’ve been out in front of a dozen radioactive dead oceans

I’ve seen ten thousand body’s mounded in graveyards.


And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard

As Actinide rain’s are gonna fall.

Oh, what did you see, my blurred eyed son?

Oh, what did you see, my decaying young one?

I saw dying deformed baby’s with doctors all around’em

I saw a Freeway of weeds with nobody on it

I saw wet black mould with Cesium that kept drippin’

I saw a room full of men with their Muller tubes a glowin’

I saw many fuel racks all covered with explosion debris

I saw ten thousand NRC talkers whose tongues were all broken

I saw contaminated food in hands and mouth’s of young children.

And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard,
It’s a hard…..as Bucky ball rain’s are a fallen’.

And what did you hear, my blind eye son?

And what did you hear, my fading young one?

I heard sounds of reactor explosions, it roared out a warnin’

Heard the roar of a Tsunami, contaminating the whole world

Heard sounds of spent fuel pools fires that were a blazin’

Heard ten thousand screaming’ and nobody listenin’

Heard !STOP THE NUKE! cry,
I heard rich people laughin’

Heard pissed off Blanch who told truth from the gutter

Heard the sound of a Scientist who cried in an empty Lab.


And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard

And Cesium rain’s are now fallen’.

Oh, who did you meet, my no eyed son?

Who did you meet, my darling dead one?

I met a deformed child beside a three head pony

I met a glowing blue man dragging a red dying dog

I met a young woman whose body was burning

I met a tumored girl, she gave me a Krypton 85 rainbow

I met many men who’s body’s are Fukushima polluted

I met meny more who’s minds are Dieichie diluted.
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard

It’s a Plutonium rain already a fallen’.

Oh, what’ll you do now, my truth open blue eyed son?

Oh, what’ll you do now, my darling young wisdom one?

I want to naturalize the radioactive rain that’s a fallin’

I’ll replant to the depths of the worlds contaminated forest

Where good people are many and their hands are all clean

Where the pellets of Plutonium are not polluting their waters

Where the home in the valley meets the organic prison

Where the executioner’s face is no longer a reality

Where hunger is gone, where souls aren’t forgotten

Where clear is the color, where none is the number

And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it

And reflect it on-line so all internet world can see it

Then I’ll filter the oceans until It starts a cleansin’

But I’ll know my thoughts well before I start decidein’


And it’s a new, it’s a new, it’s a new,

It’s a new common sense a callin’

Reality for us all. ~Gasser Classic~

Ebola Spreads Via Airborne Methods, Such As Sneezing or Coughing, But Much Higher Death Rate, Compared To Pandemic Flu Viruses

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdKGWiSLF8I

In the video above, narrator goes to official government website, where it talks about Ebola spreading from monkey to monkey via the air. Another study showed that it spread from pigs to humans.

Humans had no contact with pig blood or fluids, but showed antibodies to Ebola viruses. That would mean it can be transmitted through the air, from potentially two different types of animals, and then to humans. Some health authorities say this Ebola outbreak came from fruit bats, or contact with their infected droppings.

The video also goes into the risks that these supposedly professional medical types took when importing a case of Ebola.. They could very well have spread the Ebola virus via airborne transmission. Why aren’t all protective measures being taken around this super deadly disease?

The Spanish flu, which killed approximately 2% of all of those infected with it, is chump change when compared to Ebola, which kills between 50 to 90% of all those infected, depending on many factors.

If this epidemic in Africa gets out, it will have the potential to wreak havoc on modern civilized society, just as a natural consequence of no one wanting to be in a place where they might become infected, such as a public place, plane, etc. Yes, modern medicine might have a good handle on it, but there are HUGE consequences to a virus like this getting loose anywhere in the world.

In one country, where Ebola is out of control, the virus has already shut down schools, changed how people do funerals and much more. People no longer shake hands or gather in close proximity to each other. Clinics and hospitals closed because so many doctors and nurses got infected and died.

In the one US city that had ONE Ebola case, parents pulled their kids out of school, and volunteers quit showing up for work that involved the public or close contact with other people. There was basically no risk to them, but just the perception that it might be risky, changed people’s behavior in large ways.

If all of these things happen with just ONE Ebola case, what happens if there are many more, or it gets loose and infects other people besides the nurse that got infected from treating the one Ebola patient from Africa?

CDC REPORTS EBOLA COULD BE SPREAD BY AIR

Last month a warning issued by the CDC claimed that infectious Ebola materials could be spread through the air. The advisory urges airline staff to provide surgical masks to potential Ebola victims in order “to reduce the number of droplets expelled into the air by talking, sneezing, or coughing.” The CDC is also directing airline cleaning personnel to, “not use compressed air, which might spread infectious material through the air.” (emphasis mine). The CDC’s concern about the Ebola virus being spread via the air is understandable in light of a 2012 experiment conducted by Canadian scientists which proved that, “the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species.”

PhilipUpNorth October 30, 2014 Ebola Update:
CDC now admits airborne Ebola transmission, even from a person not showing symptoms nor testing positive. Very big news. Many thanks to Potrblog for the timely and through work. New Ebola guidelines based on Dr. Spencer case in NYC. Told ya so. 
Ebola Update:
“After a more detail reading, the CDC has greatly increased the at risk Ebola category to include the following:
1) Direct contact (hand shake) with Ebola victim 21 days PRIOR to symptom onset
2) Airborne contact, ie even “brief proximity” (such as being in the same room for a brief period of time) with an Ebola victim AFTER their symptom onset
Any person who meets those two above definitions and in the subject eyes of an examiner has any “signs” of concern such as elevated body temperature (98.7 deg F) is now defined as a “Person Under Investigation” for Ebola. And as such, that person is subject to forceful quarantine “
Potrblog Site Update 10/31/2014
It’s a new world out there.”

DROPLET TRANSMISSION METHOD

Let’s assume that Ebola in it’s present mutated form is not strictly transmissible by air. Odds are that this may be the case, because if a US nurse flew all around the country and then went into the hospital the very next day with an active Ebola infection, and no major breakout of Ebola happened, then the chances are that Ebola is NOT strictly speaking highly transmissible by air. 
But that does not negate the potential of it spreading via bodily fluids, which include droplets spread by coughing, talking or sneezing. Yes, people do ‘spit’ while talking, but most people do not notice the droplets coming out while talking. Sneezing and coughing just increases the distances and volumes of droplets being thrown about.

GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA – EBOLA SPREAD BY CONTAMINATED AIR

In an Ebola Disease Fact Sheet, but out by the government of Nigeria, it states that Ebola can be spread by ‘contaminated air’ inside hospitals.

Is ‘contaminated air’ more than just sneezing or coughing? Hopefully not.. but time will tell. So far at least, the infections seem to be limited to direct contact with bodily fluids, and that is a good thing.

STUDY FINDS EBOLA CAN LIVE FOR 3 WEEKS ON GLASS OR PLASTIC SURFACE

Risky October 23, 2014 “Study finds that “Lake Victoria marburgvirus (MARV) and Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV) can survive for long periods in different liquid media and can also be recovered from plastic and glass surfaces at low temperatures for over 3 weeks.”
Repeat, OVER 3 WEEKS ON PLASTIC AND GLASS SURFACES.

ZAIRE EBOLA IS BIOSAFETY LEVEL 4 CONTAINMENT VIRUS
 

Via Jay Dillon 4/8/2014  “Also, Zaire ebolavirus is designated as a Biosafety Level 4 Containment virus. The reason for this designation is that Zaire ebolavirus is extremely deadly and extremely contagious. It is not because “it is not airborne,” or because “it is quite difficult to contract Ebola,” as recent news stories have stated erroneously. Such statements are a deadly form of disinformation and should be discredited immediately. If Zaire ebolavirus is not readily transmissible, then ask yourself why most research labs in the world are not allowed to work with it at all. It is because most labs do not have adequate technology and security measures in place to handle it safely.
Now that Ebola has mutated and spread to humans, whether accidentally or on purpose, it could possibly be able to be spread the same way as was the case with the two animal studies above. If this this virus can spread via air, it makes it much more difficult to keep it from spreading.

And having health authorities keep claiming it cannot be spread by air or by casual contact, if indeed it does spread both of those ways, makes things much, much worse, and greatly heightens the risk that this outbreak will get totally out of control. Time will tell which way it spreads, because if the Ebola virus can be spread by air, it will be.

So far, the new is full of reports about how it cannot be spread by air or casual contact. Maybe they are right, and time will tell. 

ARMY STUDY SHOWS EBOLA IS JUST AS INFECTIOUS AS INFLUENZA AND HANGS IN THE AIR; COUGHING AND SNEEZING IS WHAT MAKES IT AIRBORNE

Ebola can infect any cell in the respiratory tract. It can also be transmitted through the skin according to Potrblog. “Unlike flu, a person need not inhale the virus or get it in the eyes. Just touching a surface where the virus is, is sufficient to infect a person. The rate of infectious rate of spread in cold weather is explosive compared to tropical Africa.”

http://pissinontheroses.blogspot.com/2014/09/us-army-says-ebola-flu-in-airborne.html

If the above is true, then the cold weather will make the virus that much more infectious and able to spread quickly, if an Ebola patient gets out of Africa and into a cold climate environment where indoor air is contaminated with the virus. Again, time will tell. 

CIDRAP CONFIRMS EBOLA TRANSMITTED BY AIR, VIA EXHALED BREATH

Tracy W October 15, 2014  CONFIRMED – EBOLA CAN BE TRANSMITTED BY AIR
And surgical masks are not adequate enough to stop the virus. The highly respected Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota just advised the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) that “there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles,” including exhaled breath. Also masks are not adequate to stop the tiny Ebola virus. Health workers need full-hooded protective gear and powered air-purifying respirators.

AFRICAN HEALTH CARE INFRASTRUCTURE TOTALLY OVERWHELMED

Local health-care infrastructure in Africa, which barely existed in the first place, is overwhelmed. People have lost faith in the large clinics, where 50 percent to 60 percent of patients who enter do not leave alive. And those in need of emergency care for other conditions — such as heart attacks or complicated births — are often frightened of clinics and hospitals, and are dying without treatment.

Deaths from Ebola are going unreported, according to aid worker who trains local caretakers of Ebola victims. The only question is, how many? Reports keep coming out of health care workers trying to find people who had contact with Ebola patients, but the people all run away before the health care workers get to the village, so there is no way to check on them, or communicate with them. 
Other reports have said whole clinics and hospitals have closed in the worst hit countries. In those countries, Ebola victims are dying at home. How many people infected with Ebola are even trying to get to a clinic or hospital?
Why are many people in Africa not going to the rare hospital that may still be open? Their fear, which is based on reality, is that doctors and nurses are infecting patients and visitors with Ebola. This outbreak is killing nurses, healthcare workers and doctors, as well as upper management staff and their whole families. 

Oct. 2014 – 94 Out of 123 Doctors And Nurses Died In Guinea From Ebola – 76% Mortality Rate, Epidemic Is Totally Out Of Control
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/10/oct-2014-94-out-of-123-doctors-and.html

When people hear this, they are afraid they will be infected by healthcare workers, nurses or doctors, so they avoid them, and this makes the spread of Ebola worse and accelerates it even more. They have also been subjected to medical experimentation, so the combination of these two things makes many people hesitant to seek help from medical doctors or clinics.

EBOLA MUTATES AS IT SPREADS

Gire and Sabeti’s group also found that the virus had started in one person. It could have been the little boy in Meliandou, but there is no way to tell for sure right now. After that, the swarm mutated steadily, its code shifting as it palpated the human population. As the virus jumped from person to person, about half the time it had a mutation in it, which caused one of the proteins in the virus to be slightly different. By the time the virus reached Sierra Leone, travelling in the bodies of the women who had attended the funeral of the faith healer, it had become two genetically distinct swarms. Both lineages of the virus moved from the funeral into Sierra Leone. Already, some of the mutations were making Ebola less visible to the tests for it.
http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/10/27/ebola-wars?intcid=mod-most-popular

Bottom line, mutations are part of the world of viruses. They mutate very quickly, which is exactly why a flu shot may do absolutely no good. A vaccine against a virus is only good against one particular genetic mutation of that virus, but not another one. A virus can mutate from one host to another, or once a month or once a year. 

INTERNATIONAL RESPONSE TEPID AND DISORGANIZED

The international response is inadequate and disorganized. The World Health Organization and the United Nations provide “road maps.” But, according to one infectious disease expert, “there is no one to implement command, control and communications. No one.” Multiple, uncoordinated organizations are attempting to confront a disease that is out of control. “They are quibbling over 25 to 30 bed units,” the expert vents. Meanwhile, WHO has revised its prediction of new Ebola infections upward to 20,000 by year-end. Other models indicate more like 100,000.

There are differences between US and Spain response to Ebola victims transported back to their respective countries. So far, most health ‘experts’ deny that Ebola can be transmitted by air, so medical experts are treating it that way, which may very well guarantee eventual exposure and transmission outside of Africa. Hopefully the health authorities are correct and this strain of Ebola cannot be transmitted by air or by casual contact, as that will make it much easier to contain. 
Combine a tepid response, an overwhelmed health system, nurses and doctors running away, US doctors, priests and others getting infected despite the best protection possible, an airborne transmission of a deadly virus that acts much like a cold or flu in the initial stages, and what do you forecast will happen?

MEDICAL SYSTEM AND FDA CRACKING DOWN ON NATURAL REMEDIES, REFUSE TO TALK ABOUT THEM OR EXPERIMENT ON EBOLA VICTIMS

Everyone has the right to use and has access to natural anti viral and anti bacterial modalities, but for some strange reason, the mass media and medical industrial complex won’t talk about any of these options. They will not inform anyone about options other than what is inside of the medical industrial for profit system. They don’t use natural health remedies or protocols in clinics or hospitals.  They refuse to test anything involving natural remedies on Ebola infected patients. To find out more about why this could be considered criminal behavior, click on the following link.

EBOLA NATURAL HEALTH REMEDIES, PROTOCOL, SUPPLIES AND INFORMATION

There are things that can be done to prevent an infection by a virus.

A Green Road Store –  Ebola Epidemic Supplies And Information

There are also natural health modalities that work against viruses, even Ebola. Check out the natural health protocol and remedies available. It may be a good idea to stock up ahead of time, because if this gets out of control then odds are great that the shelves will empty out of the anti viral types of remedies. Better to be safe than sorry. 

Ebola Natural Health Remedies And Protocols For Other Virus Based Dis-eases

Another risk that means Ebola will more than likely arrive and spread like wildfire in the US is that the CDC is working with the FDC to actively squelch any natural prevention modalities. The FDA is also cracking down on anyone claiming to sell a natural remedy for Ebola. 
These monopolistic, vaccine, drug and doctor protecting mechanisms will further accelerate the risks and spread of Ebola, practically guaranteeing that Ebola will arrive and spread like an out of control fire in the US at some point in the near future, just like Aids did. 
If they could not stop the spread of AIDS, which was much less lethal, was spread only via dirty needles and unprotected sex, and AIDS took much longer to kill people, what chance do they have with this virus, which is orders of magnitude worse, more lethal, kills faster and is much more easily spread by AIR?

Report: Dogs Eating Dead Bodies of Ebola Victims

Dogs in one community in Liberia have been reported eating the remains of dead Ebola victims lying on the streets and seen pulling the bodies out of the graves and eating the remains. “Dogs can be infected with the Ebola virus but that infections appear to be ASYMPTOMATIC.” “This means that dogs won’t get sick, but they still could carry AND SPREAD EBOLA through licking or biting…”
If dogs can act as carriers without showing any signs of the disease, and then transmit Ebola virus to humans, just like pigs or monkeys can, then what about mosquitos, ticks, mice, rats, or other critters? Even if the CDC quarantines a whole town and won’t let anyone in or out, what about the insects, birds, fruit bats, monkeys, dogs, or infected food partially eaten by infected animals and flies or coming in contact with bodily fluids such as blood or diarrhea? Can they quarantine them too? The plague of the Middle Ages was transmitted by fleas, which were carried around by animals into different towns.

Indigenous Peoples Call for Global Ban on Uranium Mining

New Mexico’s long history of uranium mining on Native American lands provides fuel for the front end of the nuclear industry and stores much of the mine tailings and radioactive waste from nuclear weapons and power plants. We look at the devastating impact uranium mining continues to have on Native lands with Leona Morgan of Eastern Navajo Diné Against Uranium Mining, a group dedicated to protecting the water, air, land and health of communities in areas impacted by uranium mines. We’re also joined by Jay Coghlan of Nuclear Watch New Mexico and former Los Alamos National Laboratory investigator Chuck Montaño.

ACTIVISTS PROTEST, MEET AND SPEAK

Indigenous Peoples Call for Global Ban on Uranium Mining

Via Mary NeverIdle Fish; Indigenous peoples from around the world, victims of uranium mining, nuclear testing, and nuclear dumping, issued a global ban on uranium mining on native lands. The declaration, signed during the Indigenous World Uranium Summit, held Nov. 30-Dec. 2, 2006 on the Navajo Nation in Window Rock, Arizona, brought together Australian aboriginals and villagers from India and Africa. Pacific islanders joined with indigenous peoples from the Americas to take action and halt the cancer, birth defects, and death from uranium and nuclear industries on native lands.

Villagers from India testified to the alarming number of babies who die before they are born or are born with serious birth defects, and of the high rates of cancer that are claiming the lives of those who live near the uranium mines.

Whistleblower Kevin Blanch; 2 New Blue Castle Nuclear Power Plants Planned For Utah; Safe, Secure, Reliable Power Production Promises?


A New 2 Unit Nuclear Energy Power Plant is approved for being built in Utah, called Blue Castle, by Kevin D. Blanch, as I fight for my life; cancer aml leukemia on 11/22/11

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The website looks really good, and the poetry is really flowery. The promises and guarantees sound great. But are these promise and assurances based on reality, or is it all just PR firm money spent to hide reality? As the following article points out, it is VERY easy to make promises, but it is almost impossible for the nuclear industry to live up to them.

Note that the youtube videos and the channel itself that make all of these promises and guarantees does not allow any comments. No speaking truth to power or debating is allowed here. Find out why the promises being made are all empty and false, click on the link… 

Catch 22 – Nuclear High Technology Plus Safety Assurances Offer Only False Promises, Empty Guarantees And Deceptions; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/03/nuclear-high-technology-plus-safety.html

WHERE IS THE WATER COMING FROM FOR THESE 2 NEW BLUE CASTLE NUCLEAR PLANTS? WATER RATES ARE GOING UP DRASTICALLY, GUARANTEED

The proposed Blue Castle reactors will be built in a desert. Utah is the second driest state in the nation. Does this make any logical sense at all? If the megadrought continues for another couple of years, all of this approval by everyone and their brother for the Blue Castle project will not mean anything, because without HUGE amounts of cooling water, no nuclear plant is possible. 

The pro nuclear apologists are making lots of money promises to everyone involved, but if the water sources dry up, money will mean nothing. Even under the best of circumstances, it looks like a water war is shaping up, and water rates will be going up drastically, all thanks to this and other nuclear power plant projects.

Mega Drought Evidence; USA And Other Countries – California Could Be Entering 100 To 200 Year Megadrought Period

The Utah branch of the Sierra Club reports; “As if the idea of building a nuclear power plant in the middle of the Utah desert isn’t bad enough, the project requires 56,400 acre feet of water per year to operate—much of which will be lost to evaporation in a backup storage reservoir. Each acre foot of water equals 325,829 gallons per year, or, in the case of the Blue Castle plant, 56,400 times 325,829 gallons of water from a water source that Utah’s own governor recently admitted is already over allocated. No matter as state legislator Mike Noel, (R), District 73 who is also the Kane County Water Commissioner, worked to secure a transfer of water rights from Kane and San Juan Counties to support operation of the plant. As a bonus, following completion of the plant, Kane County would receive approximately $1M per year for use of their water rights while San Juan County would receive $800,000.
If for any reason an accident or act of terrorism were to occur at the plant, and as a result, pollute the Green and Colorado Rivers, a disaster of historic proportions could result as these rivers represent the water source for more than 30 million people living downstream who depend on these rivers for their very existence. It’s worth mentioning that downstream from Green River, Utah legislators are lobbying for creation of a pipeline to feed development in St. George that if built, would draw another 86,000 acre feet of water from the Colorado River system. 
These projects come at a time when Lake Powell is at 47% of normal and climate change predictors all forecast a much drier and warmer Utah in the future. Clearly, both of these projects are reflective of a state leadership that is driven by greed rather than common sense and planning for future generations.”
Bottom line, pouring BILLIONS of public taxpayer dollars into a boondoggle project that will consume water which will more than likely not be there when the project is completed, is going to result in a financial catastrophe of epic proportions. But that is par for the course, with the nuclear industry. It is not their money after all, so who cares if they lose it all, and then people end up paying for a project that was never completed?

NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY CLAIMS ALL RADIATION IS GOOD FOR CHILDREN

The pro nuclear apologists claim that this nuclear power plant will be good for children and future generations of children and that they can ‘rely on’ nuclear power. 
What is the rest of the story? What can the people and children living around this new nuclear power plant look forward to? Whistleblower Kevin Blanch is calling attention to this issue, which is being conveniently covered up by the pro nuclear industry PR campaign, which actually features children prominently in it’s poetic reference that combines all good things radioactive with children. Isn’t there a law about false advertising, fraud and misrepresentation?

NUCLEAR IS CHEAP  AND ZERO CARBON

The pro nuclear apologists are making promises about the ‘low cost’ of nuclear power via the Blue Castle nuclear power plant project;  “More than 2,500 jobs are expected to be created for construction of the two units and about 1,000 permanent, full-time employees will work at the plant during its 60-year operating life. The low-cost baseload power generated by the Blue Castle Project will support regional economic growth well beyond the immediate construction and operation jobs, while also providing the environmental benefit of zero carbon emissions.”

Not only are nuclear power plants generating huge amounts of radioactive global warming gases, they are also creating acid, which goes directly into the oceans and/or creates acid rain, which makes everything much worse.

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY DEMANDS AND GETS TENS OF MILLIONS OF SACRIFICIAL VICTIMS

Rather than being the solution for global warming, nuclear power will only accelerate the global warming plus negative climate change, bottom line. Nuclear power is not the sustainable solution that the pro nuclear apologists like to claim it is. Nuclear power has demanded and received many tens of millions of sacrificial victims all around the world. Building new nuclear power plants will only radically increase this number in the future.

PlowboyGrownUp September 16, 2014 More on AEC and bomb testing “…The AEC selected the Nevada Test Site in southeastern Nevada because the federal government owned hundreds of square miles of surrounding desert land, and because it contained, in the contemptuous words of one bureaucrat, “a low-use segment of the population”–the Mormon citizens of St. George, Cedar City, and other sacrificial cities of southwestern Utah. …”
“…As evidence mounted of the deadly poisons these tests rained on the people of southwestern Utah, AEC officials induced their employees to lie about the danger. After establishing a ground-monitoring program in the spring of 1953, the AEC conducted a series of tests in the Upshot-Knothole series. In one of these tests–nicknamed “Dirty Harry”–a radioactive cloud lofted by the explosion hovered over St. George for more than two hours….”

One idea might be to ask them to retract the misleading information that they are putting out to the public, and if they don’t, ask the attorney general or local citizen based legal groups or grand juries to intervene.

Killer Whales Dying In Pacific Ocean, No Babies since 2011, Population Dropping

Kevin Blanch says the Pacific ocean is dying. He calls it the Pacific genocide. How much evidence of this is there, or is Kevin just ‘fearmongering’? Let’s dive in and see what the evidence shows… Draw your own conclusions.

NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION REPORTS ON KILLER WHALES; THEY ARE IN TROUBLE

NWP: “When West Coast wild chinook stocks plummeted in the mid-1990s, the southern resident orca population dropped from 99 in 1995 to about 80 in 2001. The northern resident population went from 219 to 202 during roughly the same time period. “Mortality in some years was 300 percent greater than we expected,” says John K.B. Ford of Fisheries and Oceans Canada–Canada’s lead federal manager of oceans and inland waters–who has studied killer whales for 30 years.
Puget Sound is steeped in toxics from pulp and paper mills, oil refineries, ports, boatyards and storm-water runoff. Salmon and other fish store in their bodies toxic pollutants they absorb from this environment. As a result of eating these contaminated fish, Puget Sound killer whales have some of the highest concentrations of highly carcinogenic polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) of any marine mammal in the world, says Gary Wiles, a wildlife biologist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. They also have high levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers, which are toxic fire retardants.
As salmon numbers dwindle, killer whales burn blubber to survive, transferring toxics from blubber to vital organs. “When orcas metabolize fat that’s 1,000 parts per million PCBs, it’s phenomenally toxic,” Balcomb says. “Even trace amounts of PCBs disrupt the orcas’ endocrine systems, adversely affecting reproduction and their immune systems. We have seen whales become emaciated and disappear. And lots of reproduction-age females are not reproducing.”
http://www.nwf.org/news-and-magazines/national-wildlife/animals/archives/2006/orcas-on-the-edge.aspx

Experts: 100% death rate for baby killer whales along West Coast — ‘Alarm bells ring’ as no newborns have survived in past 3 years — “This is absolutely the worst thing possible”, pregnant orca dies with decomposing stillborn full-term fetus inside — “We’re going to lose them… they’ll be extinct for sure” (VIDEO)

IUCN REPORT ON KILLER WHALES; THEY ARE IN TROUBLE

Wikipedia; “The IUCN currently assesses the orca’s conservation status as data deficient because of the likelihood that two or more killer whale types are separate species. Some local populations are considered threatened or endangered due to prey depletion, habitat loss, pollution (by PCBs), capture for marine mammal parks, and conflicts with fisheries. In late 2005, the “southern resident” population of killer whales that inhabits British Columbia and Washington state waters were placed on the U.S. Endangered Species list.

A world map shows killer whales are found throughout every ocean, except parts of the Arctic. They are also absent from the Black and Baltic Seas.
Orcinus orca range (in blue
Once the stocks of larger species were depleted, killer whales were targeted by commercial whalers in the mid-20th century. Between 1954 and 1997, Japan took 1,178 killer whales and Norway took 987.[185] Over 3,000 killer whales were taken by Soviet whalers,[186] including an Antarctic catch of 916 in 1979–80 alone, prompting the International Whaling Commission to recommend a ban on commercial hunting of the species pending further research.[185] Today, no country carries out a substantial hunt, although Indonesia and Greenland permit small subsistence hunts…Whalers more often considered them a nuisance, however, as they would gather to scavenge meat from the whalers’ catch.[187] Some populations, such as in Alaska’s Prince William Sound, may have been reduced significantly by whalers shooting them in retaliation.[18]
Killer whales are notable for their complex societies. Only elephants and higher primates, such as humans, live in comparably complex social structures.[73] Due to orcas’ complex social bonds and society, many marine experts have concerns about how humane it is to keep these animals in captive situations.[128] Resident killer whales in the eastern North Pacific have a particularly complex and stable social grouping system. Unlike any other mammal species whose social structure is known, residents live with their mothers for their entire lives. These societies are based on matrilines consisting of the matriarch and her descendants which form part of the line, as do their descendants. The average size of a matriline is 5.5 animals.[129]
Because females can reach age 90, as many as four generations travel together. These matrilineal groups are highly stable. Individuals separate for only a few hours at a time, to mate or forage. With one exception, the killer whale named Luna, no permanent separation of an individual from a resident matriline has been recorded.[129]
Closely related matrilines form loose aggregations called pods, usually consisting of one to four matrilines. Unlike matrilines, pods may separate for weeks or months at a time.[129] DNA testing indicates resident males nearly always mate with females from other pods.[130]
Killer whales, like this one spotted near Alaska, commonly breach, often lifting their entire bodies out of the water.
Clans, the next level of resident social structure, are composed of pods with similar dialects, and common but older maternal heritage. Clan ranges overlap, mingling pods from different clans.[129]
The final association layer, perhaps more arbitrarily defined than the familial groupings, is called the community, and is defined as a set of clans that regularly commingle. Clans within a community do not share vocal patterns.”

GLOBAL FISHERY TRENDS ARE MADE UP OF MANY NEGATIVE TIPPING POINTS 

Obviously, because the oceans are so large, anyone can find local areas where sealife populations (including killer whales) are ‘thriving’ or ‘normal’, but that is not the point.. The larger global trends are what matters, and they are negative, for the most part especially in those areas were fishing and civilization ’emissions’ are part of the equation. Killer whales are subject to shooting by fishermen, capture by theme parks, noise damage from military sonars, and health issues from concentration of chemicals, radiation, heavy metals and more. Killer whales are having problems globally, so that indicates something is wrong in the food chain below them. This is not just a local problem, but something that is global, and should be looked at in this way. 
The number of killer whales has been dropping drastically from historic levels, because their food supply is also disappearing. One cannot support the historically large killer whale populations on the small amount of salmon that are left, due to mass die off’s of 90% or more.

SHIFTING BASELINES

SHIFTING BASELINES ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM

As the video points out, shifting baselines are also part of the problem, because if one does not even know what one started with, one cannot know what ‘normal’ even looks like. 90% of the salmon, or more, have disappeared in most areas.

But now, many people believe that this situation involving only a very small number of salmon returning 1 -2 times a year (instead of many runs throughout the year) is ‘normal’, and the small numbers leftover from the first mass die off are being used as a normal ‘baseline’.

The same thing applies to killer whales. No one really knows how many whales or killer whales there were originally, much less how many there are now on a global basis, since no one is counting them globally. Who knows how many of those original populations are left? What ends up happening is that the few that are left over are used as a ‘baseline’. It looks much better to lose 20 out of a 100, than to lose 20 out of an original 3,000, with only 100 left after the rest died off due to human activities or pollutants.

Huge ocean dead zones return or continue each year, so they are now the ‘normal’. At what point does the normal grow into one massive dead zone all year long, in the whole Pacific ocean? Right now, huge dead zones are present all around the world, and they come and go. Those dead zones are growing for the most part. Ocean water is also becoming warmer as well as more and more acidic. Add this problem on top of the radioactive garbage dumped, poured and being deposited via radiation plumes.. The result is a triple whammy for all life in the ocean, all the way up to killer whales. It is possible to say that all of these problems lead to a process that could be called (the oceans are dying).

MANY OTHER SPECIES ARE EXPERIENCING MASS DIE OFFS 

Isn’t it a reasonable conclusion, to say that killer whales as an apex predator are just one of many species that are EVIDENCE of the dying of many species that inhabit the Pacific ocean? The ocean itself is becoming inhospitable to sea life, starting with the most fragile bottom of the food chain organisms, and working up from there. The trends seem to be mostly negative, with things getting worse, not better, overall. It is not just killer whales that are having the problems, it is many other species as well.

Experts: “Really an off year” — Pelicans starving in Pacific Northwest since 2011, killing baby birds for food — Breeding success “really poor” since 2011 — “I believe pelicans are responding to large scale changes” — “Sardine crash” persists in Pacific since decline in 2011 December 22, 2013

The longer term end result of these few first and very visible species disappearing is the same; the eventual death of the Pacific ocean and much or most of the life in it. How else would you describe mass die off’s of multiple species over just a couple of generations, or even faster in some cases, just in the last couple of years, all the way from Alaska to Mexico?
50 species of starfish disappearing from Mexico to Alaska should be on the nightly news every day, and it should stimulate INTENSE research to figure out ALL of the root cause(s). Herring, seals, sea lions, killer whales, polar bears, birds, and more are all having problems and experiencing mass die offs, not just locally but all along the Pacific coastline from Alaska to Mexico.. Isn’t this a HUGE red flag that something is SERIOUSLY wrong? 

SINCE 3/11 FUKUSHIMA MEGA NUCLEAR DISASTER, MASS DIE OFFS ARE THE RULE 

As Kevin and others are pointing out, this die off and lack of ability to breed and raise young is not just a ‘temporary’ problem such as algae affecting local populations, or a periodic dip in animal populations, or a migration of animals from one area to another.

What seems to be happening now is systemic, large scale and multi year mass die offs, health problems and/or the inability to successfully raise young in many species. The evidence that Fukushima radiation is involved and is a factor in the latest round of accelerating mass die offs is accumulating and building, especially in the young, even if the adults are surviving for the time being.

FUKUSHIMA RADIATION MAGNIFIES UP THE FOOD CHAIN; WHAT EFFECT IS IT HAVING ON KILLER WHALES AND HUMANS? 

Remember that all animals have their place in a food pyramid, with the lowest level being the plankton and the algae. Radiation concentrates and magnifies up the food chain to humans and killer whales who are at the top.

The next step up the ladder consists of the above species and articles links, which prove and document that those species are experiencing mass die offs or having huge problems, starting since 2011. The step up the ladder from those critters are the killer whales, and they also are documented to be having massive problems since 2011.
It would be easy to document if Fukushima radiation is at least part of the cause, by doing necropsy and then radiation measurements of DRIED tissue samples of killer whale heart, thyroid, liver, muscles and bone. Because each organ or gland concentrates different man made radioactive elements, each one will give information. Is anyone doing this? No..
HoTaters October 9, 2014 “SETAC — Prof. J. Alava and F.A. Gobas, Simon Fraser Univ., Nov. 13, 2014: [T]o track the long term fate and bioaccumulation of 137Cs in marine organisms… we assessed the bioaccumulation potential of 137Cs in a North West Pacific food-web… [Specifically, the] marine mammalian food web… outcomes showed that 137Cs can be expected to bioaccumulate gradually… [The] magnification factor for 137Cs [was] from 5.0 at 365 days of simulation to 30 at 10,950 days. From 1 year to 30 years of simulation, the 137Cs activities predicted in the male killer whale were 6.0 to 182 times 137Cs activities in its major prey [Chinook salmon]… This modeling work showed that in addition to the ocean dilution of 137Cs, a magnification of this radionuclide takes place in the marine food web over time.
The bigger question is; what negative effect is or will Fukushima radiation have on human health, particularly the kids, who are most sensitive to even small amounts of radiation? Humans are also apex predators, just like killer whales. There is no way that killer whales and humans can eat the same food and not experience the exact same results. Of course, different locations will have different results, more than likely big cities having worse outcomes than pristine wilderness areas with no population to speak of, and no industry fouling the ocean waters. 
Nature works according to laws. There is no exception to breaking Nature’s laws for animals or humans. If humans work in harmony with the laws of Nature, there is a benefit. But humans are currently fighting and violating the laws of Nature. ‘Civilized’ humans are completely out of harmony with Nature and her laws. Neither corporations or humans cannot win this ‘war’ that is currently being fought against Nature.

Art And Science Of Deception; Global Corporations And The 1%
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/corporations-art-and-science-of.html

A whole pod of 9 killer whales beaches themselves in New Zealand and dies. Couln’t this be pointing at some huge problem(s) in the ocean? Has there ever been something like this happening ever before? This is the most intelligent living thing in the ocean, or if not, they are in the top three. If they are committing suicide not just individually but as a FAMILY unit, something really bad must be happening. It would be the equivalent of a couple of families in a typical neighborhood killing themselves.. Something like this pod suicide points to a severe and really bad problem, because families just don’t do that normally.

Of course, there is no absolute ‘evidence’. These whales cannot say why they committed suicide, because they are dead. Dead whales don’t normally leave suicide notes, but this is or should be very alarming news. According to Wikipedia, no one is studying this, and no one is even counting how many killer whales are left, but there are plenty of people trying to profit off of or kill the few killer whales that are left.

The easiest way out is to say it is a mystery and never try to figure it out or do any actual testing of tissue samples, including radiation, and that is exactly what the government and ocean biologists are doing.. They blame all of this mass die off from Alaska to Mexico of many species both on land and in the ocean, on some viral ‘syndrome’. 

MARINE THEME PARKS: IS IT JUSTIFIABLE TO CAPTURE AND HOLD KILLER WHALES IN CAPTIVITY?

Is it justifiable to capture killer whales and/or dolphins, when their populations are dropping in the wild and their populations are small percentages of what they used to be historically? Frontline investigates the issue of marine ‘zoos’…

Frontline: A Whale of a Business
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3fZ2dMdtu8

If money and profits were not the focus, would marine theme parks still exist? Wouldn’t you agree that money/profit seems to be driving all of the decisions being made, and that those decisions are not oriented towards saving the planet? Are these theme parks helping or hurting killer whales and dolphins in the wild?

HUGE PROFITS IN DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER AND KILLER WHALE SALES

Taijit Bay Japan, The Place Where Thousands of Dolphins Are Slaughtered Every Year
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/07/taijit-bay-japan-place-where-thousands.html

Unless these theme parks are going to actively help in saving what life is left in the oceans, their actions amount to nothing more than greenwashing and pretending that everything is still ok out in the oceans. To the extent that this myth is passed on to the public in these types of facilities, they are guilty of helping in causing the death of the oceans and mass die off of fishery species, via fairly brutal and profit motivated methods, such as the ones used at Taijit Bay in Japan.  Rather than helping to preserve and reverse the decline, the theme parks and swim with the dolphin facilities are actually accelerating it, with rare exceptions.

COUNTING THE FEW KILLER WHALES THAT ARE LEFT

Wikipedia; “Bigg’s techniques also revealed the Pacific Northwest population was in the low hundreds rather than the thousands that had been previously assumed.[169] The southern resident community alone had lost 48 of its members to captivity; by 1976, only 80 remained.[181] In the Pacific Northwest, the species that had unthinkingly been targeted became a cultural icon within a few decades.[149]The killer whale’s intelligence, trainability, striking appearance, playfulness in captivity and sheer size have made it a popular exhibit at aquaria and aquatic theme parks.

From 1976 to 1997, 55 whales were taken from the wild in Iceland, 19 from Japan, and three from Argentina. These figures exclude animals that died during capture. Live captures fell dramatically in the 1990s, and by 1999, about 40% of the 48 animals on display in the world were captive-born.[188]

(Trying to capture just one killer whale can result in the deaths of many more killer whales in the attempt. Dead killer whales sink out of sight, out of mind, and since no one is counting, who cares how many die to get just one killer whale into a theme park?)

Organizations such as World Animal Protection and theWhale and Dolphin Conservation Society campaign against the practice of keeping them in captivity. In captivity, killer whales often develop pathologies, such as the dorsal fin collapse seen in 60–90% of captive males. Captives have vastly reduced life expectancies, on average only living into their 20s.[Note 3] In the wild, females which survive infancy live 50 years on average, and up to 70–80 years in rare cases. Wild males who survive infancy live 30 years on average, and up to 50–60 years.[189] 
Captivity usually bears little resemblance to wild habitat, and captive whales’ social groups are foreign to those found in the wild. Critics claim captive life is stressful due to these factors and the requirement to perform circus tricks that are not part of wild killer whale behavior.[190] Wild killer whales travel up to 160 kilometers (100 mi) each day, and critics say the animals are too big and intelligent to be suitable for captivity.[141] 
Captives occasionally act aggressively towards themselves, their tankmates, or humans, which critics say is a result of stress.[174] Between 1991 and 2010, the bull orca known as Tilikum killed three people, and was featured in the critically acclaimed 2013 film, Blackfish.[191] Tilikum has lived at SeaWorld since 1992.[192][193][194][195]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killer_whale

ARE KILLER WHALE THEME PARKS GREENWASHING?

Based on the above facts, wouldn’t you agree that marine theme parks that capture dolphins and killer whales from the wild are actually greenwashing? 
Greenwashing; Fake ‘Green’ Products, Services And Industries; Misleading Half Truths And Public Manipulations
Could it be that these marine theme parks and aquariums are just places to showcase ‘products’ and generate revenue, making short term profits off of a rapidly collapsing environmental and ecological system and living web of life that includes killer whales and dolphins? Or, are they going to transition into places where people can go to learn not just about the animals, but also how to save the planet and these animals as well?

So far, it seems that these theme parks, zoos and aquariums may be either outright denying, minimizing or skirting the very REAL planet 911 emergency issues which AGRP dives into in great depth. See index to all articles links below this article.


As an alternative to theme parks, maybe it would be better to arrange going out with LOCAL ocean tour guides that can give you this kind of experience…  No animals are harmed and seven future generations can do this. The money spent on doing your adventure benefits the local economy, rather than some huge corporate giant. And if you take a video, it may go viral like this one did, and get you 4 MILLION views.  Finally, no killer whale families are broken up and torn apart to provide entertainment for people. 

SUMMARY

This painting by Kevin Blanch (from video above) represents the Pacific ocean and his feeling and/or thinking about what condition it is in. Is it any wonder that there are mass die off’s of multiple species?

Maybe it is not just Fukushima radiation that is causing the die off of multiple species, but the witches brew of chemicals, hormones, heavy metals, carbon based pesticides, acid ocean water, methane emissions, fertilizers and radioactive poisons have now gotten to the point where mass die off’s of multiple species are taking off and accelerating.

Instead of documenting and studying the many potential causes of the mass die off of many species, (including radiation) plus giving warnings to humanity, many to most scientists, nuclear experts, and biologists are playing the ‘it is all a mystery’ game, denying anything bad is happening or covering it all up, while avoiding any mention or actual testing of radiation. 

PhilipUpNorth September 5, 2014  “Killer Whale population crash. Just another card/species falling in the House Of Cards that is the delicately balanced Pacific Ocean Ecosystem. Will the decline, caused by corporate greed and government corruption in general, and by the nuclear industry cabal in particular, reach throughout Earth’s Biosphere? Stay tuned.” 
Unless massive and quick changes are made to how people live and how companies do business, there is very little hope of saving of what is left. All countries need to move to a nuclear and carbon free future with cradle to cradle zero chemical emissions if humanity is to have any hope of surviving, much less prospering. The odds of humanity making it through the accelerating 45+ negative tipping points are dropping fast. Time is running out. Looking at all of the negative tipping points that are accelerating and combining into a perfect storm, time is of the essence. Every day counts. Every action matters. What kinds of actions can make a difference? Here is one success story, just to give an example…

In an unprecedented change in the ratings for such a large number of species from ‘avoid’ to a ‘sustainable’ rating, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch programme is moving 21 species of West Coast fish to sustainable status, due in large part to the success of a fisheries management programme that began in 2011 and championed by the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).

Do what you can, where you can. Think about 7 future generations before committing to do anything, or spending any money. Support those few organizations and people that are doing the right thing, and not just greenwashing.


And on that note, remember, we are still aliving, so everything’s ok. Do your best and never give up.

2014 – Is Radiation From Fukushima Causing Massive Die-Off Of Oysters And Scallops – B.C. And Pacific Ocean Coast?


Follow ClimateState https://facebook.com/ClimateState

The above video describes how an acidic ocean is deadly for Vancouver Island scallop industry. Although they seem to be very clear in blaming CO2, things may not be as they appear. Read the rest of the article below to dive into this sticky wicket that involves the mass die off of many ocean species. 
First off, many nuclear experts and other pro nuclear apologists are claiming that absolutely no radiation from Fukushima reached the US, and that even if it did, it can cause no harm to anyone or anything. It is easy to say something, but how do they prove that claim, without extensive testing of the whole food chain, from algae all the way up to humans? No testing like this has been done, so how can they make this assertion, with no proof to back it up? Let’s tackle these issues one at a time. First let’s establish that radiation from Fukushima has been found in the ocean off the west coast. 

HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF CESIUM FOUND IN VANCOUVER AREA OCEAN WATER, RADIATION IN ALASKA AND CALIFORNIA

April 1 2014 Radio: “Surprisingly, high concentrations [of Fukushima cesium] found in Vancouver area” since ocean currents slow down — Levels are increasing — “Might be hotspots where radiation concentrates” — “Chances are high for marine life to absorb it… concern about mussels… clams, oysters” (AUDIO)
February 25, 2014 Fukushima’s Radioactive Ocean Water Arrives At West Coast
Two radioactive cesium isotopes, cesium-134 and cesium-137, have been detected offshore of Vancouver, British Columbia, researchers said at a news conference. Via John Smith, a research scientist at Canada’s Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

California Nuclear Plant Engineer: We were hit by explosion at Fukushima Unit 3 (MAP) — “The public started to freak out” — Tell colleagues what radioactive material is coming their way… don’t notify public — Don’t release initial data to officials until they’re ‘on board’

RADIATION EXPERT SAYS FUKUSHIMA RADIATION CAN REACH US AND MOVE UP THE FOOD CHAIN

Now let’s explore how much radiation went into the Pacific, and what kind of effect that radiation from Fukushima can have on the food chain. A massive amount of radiation was released from Fukushima, orders of magnitude more than Chernobyl. To review the scientific studies showing just how much was released in terms of peak ocean water radiation readings, click on the following link

2014 – Fukushima Ocean Radiation Compared To Chernobyl and 2,400 Open Air Nuclear Bomb Tests; via @AGreenRoad

Radiation Expert: Enormous amount of contamination flowing from Fukushima will probably imperil entire Pacific Ocean — Threatens other countries, food chain — Absolutely can reach U.S. and Canadian shores (VIDEO) Dr. Sherman: Well both cesium and strontium have a half-life about thirty years. It takes 10 half-lives for each of these isotopes to decay down to nothing. We contaminate the plankton, and that’s eaten by shrimp and oysters and fish and mammals. And as most of these move up the food chain they get concentrated. Particularly strontium-90 gets concentrated in the bones.
http://enenews.com/radiation-expert-enormous-amount-of-contamination-flowing-from-fukushima-will-probably-imperil-entire-pacific-ocean-and-its-sea-life-absolutely-can-reach-u-s-and-canadian-shores-video/

Buessler and other experts say this much is clear: Both short-lived radioactive elements, such as iodine-131, and longer-lived elements — such as cesium-137, with a half-life of 30 years — can be absorbed by phytoplankton, zooplankton, kelp, and other marine life and then be transmitted up the food chain, to fish, marine mammals, and humans. Other radioactive elements — including plutonium, which has been detected outside the Fukushima plant — also pose a threat to marine life. A key question is how concentrated will the radioactive contamination be. 
So far, the evidence shows that massive amounts of radiation have been released by Fukushima and that it can travel up the food chain. But what other effects can radiation have on ocean water?

STUDIES SHOW THAT OCEAN ALGAE BIOMAGNIFIES RADIATION UP TO 26,000 TIMES

Now let’s explore the proof that algae and small organisms absorb even diluted amounts of radiation from the ocean and concentrate/magnify it to the next step up on the food chain.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/04/plutonium-and-cesium-bio-concentrates.html

FXofTruth August 31, 2014 To think the best explanation that the experts can come up with is, “This is also very weird… not sure exactly why it’s happening”. Big college degrees, big funding, big marine technology, big databases and the only “expert opinion” is it’s weird? No it’s not weird. It’s actual really clear if, you think of how a drop of black ink works in a glass of water.
One concentrated, single drop of ink dropped into a glass of clear water will disperse and seem to disappear but, it didn’t disappear it’s just became diffused in the water. But keep adding drop after drop and the accumulation becomes more visible. If the drops continue endlessly the glass will end up as black as the original bottle of ink was.
Radiation contamination accumulate in the same way. Just because it can’t been seen doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Each “dispersed” ton of deadly contaminated water from those melted cores is now bio-accumulating in ALL sea life and surface life. Since the cores will never cease contaminating the ocean, eventually the entire ocean will be as deadly to life as the cores themselves. The radioactive “black ink effect” will be throughout the entire ecosystem.
So, the only “weirdness” is the constant game of playing stupid when the answer is all around and has been “dripping” into the ocean for over 3 years. Many people figured out that we were going to end up this way, right after the plants blew up.”

AGRP could not have put it any better than this… 

RADIOACTIVITY HAS BEEN KNOWN TO MAKE OCEAN WATER ACIDIC

It has been known since the early 1950’s that radioactivity in high concentrations makes water acidic. The attempt to blame this pending catastrophe on the “greenhouse gases” boogyman of the moment is a distraction from the real, manmade cause that portends a catastrophe of global proportions, but has little or nothing to do with CO2.  For more details, see: http://www.orgonomicecology.blogspot.com 
joelcarlinsky@yahoo.com
The Vancouver Aquarium has been doing just that – and its records show the pH level in Vancouver’s harbour steadily declining, from 8.1 (1954-74) to a low of 7.3 by 2001.
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/mystery-surrounds-massive-die-off-of-oysters-and-scallops-off-bc-coast/article17156108/

Can you see a pattern starting to emerge? Yes, the rising CO2 levels in the air from burning carbon fuels are absorbed by the ocean, and that is a fact. But what is being ignored 100% by all of these biologists and scientists is that radiation from nuclear accidents and other sources is also a contributor to acidic oceans.

In addition, massive amounts of acid are used during processing and reprocessing of nuclear fuels. Where did the millions of tons of highly concentrated acid go after it was used to produce nuclear fuels? Want to bet it all went into the ocean?

A MASS DIE OFF OF SEASTARS, SALMON, HERRING HAS ALREADY HAPPENED FROM ALASKA TO MEXICO

Now let’s look at the effects of Fukushima radiation on the ocean, since 2011.

OYSTERS AND SCALLOP STUDY: SHOWS THEY CONCENTRATE RADIATION BY UP TO 17,000 TIMES

There is no news covering radiation in scallops, clams or other filter feeders on the west coast since 2011. Promises were made to test filter feeders, but no news came out after that, and nothing has been published. So to show that filter feeders do absorb radiation, AGRP had to dig up an old study from 2006, which shows that filter feeders to concentrate radiation by up to 17,000 times.

http://www.clarku.edu/mtafund/prodlib/hanford/HanfordClamReport.pdf

What happens if the algae and plankton that are in the water are already highly radioactive, because they concentrate and accumulate radiation also? Who is testing the clams, scallops and abalone, plus other filter feeders, as was being done at the Hanford Reach above?
So far, no studies, no results, but lots and lots of mass die offs, closed beaches to clamming and mysteries, plus befuddled scientists.

MYSTERY DIE OFF OF OYSTERS, SCALLOPS, AND OTHER FILTER FEEDERS

What do you think is happening? The evidence is there; radiation has been found in ocean water off the coast. Algae concentrate that radiation, and filter feeders concentrate/magnify it some more. At some point it all becomes toxic and deadly, which causes mass die offs. Add in the acid creating effect of radiation on ocean water, and you have a double whammy. If the radiation does not get you, the acid plus the radiation will. Is there evidence of something deadly moving up the food chain from the tiniest organisms, all the way up to the top of the food chain? Let’s explore that…

2014 MASS DIE OFFS  

A short news snippet below details a NW organization that is losing their funding, which is testing mussels and what they found, but no mention is made of anything radioactive, despite using a machine that would detect everything radioactive. They also never mention acid water. They do talk about mussels not ‘surviving’ something, but the reporter is not clear exactly how many are dying, why, or what exactly happened. This could be a reference to just a couple of mussels dying in a small tank, or a mass die off event.

3/2014 Tens of millions of scallops die off on west coast, but no problem on east coast

More news about the scallops dying off. This crop was planted between 2009 to 2011, and now there is a mass die off, just like the starfish, the seals, the polar bears, the walruses, the salmon and herring. 
If this is acid ocean water from global warming, then this same thing should be happening all around the world, especially downwind of all of the CO2 being produced, right? So why is it happening UP WIND of the CO2 being generated in the USA? Wouldn’t it make more sense that the East Coast would be hit the hardest from CO2 emissions and acid ocean water, seeing how all of the carbon dioxide from the entire US ends up going right over all of the rivers and bays of the Atlantic ocean?

Not every ocean species is experiencing die offs. Because seastars have almost disappeared from many areas, the hardy mussels are taking off and experiencing a population boom as are the spiny urchins, which feed on the tall wavy fronds of seaweed that many others species depend on for habitat and food. But the fact that sea stars as a key stone species, one would think that more alarms would be raised. First it was the soft bodied sea stars dying. Then it was the medium bodies sea stars, and now it is the hard bodied sea stars, according to one source. After the hard bodied sea stars are all dead, there are no more. In some areas the only sea stars left are a few hardy purple ones.

Maybe the Chinese know something that even US citizens are not allowed to find out about. Why would China ban shellfish imports from the WEST COAST, but not the EAST COAST?

Socrates August 31, 2014 “Radiological oncologists frequently pre-dose with arsenic those tumor cells they wish to target because heavy metals enhance the effects of radiation on cells. If the fertilization with iron-based fertilizers was used, and the toxic algae bioaccumulate both radionuclides and heavy metals, then the effects of the Fukushima radiation would be magnified in marine animals by the bioaccumulation of the heavy metals by the toxic algae and the Fukushima radiation combined.
The Chinese have banned West Coast seafood because of arsenic and DA. Much of the arsenic is organic. It takes many months to dissipate in the ocean. However, the algae bioaccumulate the heavy metals. On top of that is the radiation. The cells of the animals would be primed for cell death by the heavy metals. Then comes the radiation. It would take far less radiation to start killing cells. Ionizing radiation releases free radicals and creates peroxygenation of DNA. Immunity is destroyed by interfering with redox signaling and cytokines, Cascading effects on the cellular functioning occurs, including mutations and infection by opportunistic pathogenic organisms. Many things operate synergistically to cause cancer. Smoking and asbestos is just one example. Heavy metals and radiation exposure is another.”

WHAT IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF MASS DIE OFF OF MULTIPLE OCEAN SPECIES?

There is a problem, all right, but it may not be from just CO2 or heavy metals or acid alone. These biologists are so ardently trying to blame just one thing for the demise of all oysters. One cause of increased acidity of sea water is radioactivity from all the nuclear acid waste dumped into the oceans, drums of high level nuclear waste, nuclear-powered ships passing through the water, and fallout falling into the water from all the things the nuclear industry and armed forces of the nuclear-armed nations are doing, including the use of radioactive ammunition (DU)  in wars around the world and for target practice at home.

Fukushima is still pouring a large amount of high level liquid waste into the ocean on top of the huge dump that happened right after 3/11. The nuclear disaster in Japan is getting worse and worse, but is being completely covered up. How much worse will things get, before the real issues are addressed and studied? Time will tell, but now you know more than just about all of the pro nuclear biologists, scientists, the public and mass media combined.

Direct Democracy Versus Representative Democracy And Other Forms Of Government

This article discusses many points of view in relationship to direct democracy, including definition, history, examples, and much more.

DEFINITION

Wikipedia; “Direct democracy (also known aspure democracy)[1] is a form of democracy in which people decide (e.g. vote on, form consensus on) policy initiatives directly, as opposed to a representative democracy in which people vote for representatives who then decide policy initiatives.[2]Depending on the particular system in use, it might entail passing executive decisions, the use of sortition, makinglaws, directly electing or dismissing officials and conducting trials. Two leading forms of direct democracy areparticipatory democracy and deliberative democracy.
A Landsgemeinde, or assembly, of the Canton of Glarus, on 7 May 2006, Switzerland.

BASIC FORMS

Most countries that are representative democracies allow for three forms of political action that provide limited direct democracy: referendum (plebiscite), initiative, and recall. Referendums may include the ability to hold a binding vote on whether a given law should be rejected. This effectively grants the populace which holds suffrage a veto on a law adopted by the elected legislature (one nation to use this system isSwitzerland). Initiatives, usually put forward by members of the general public, compel the consideration of laws (usually in a subsequent referendum) without the consent of the elected representatives, or even against their expressed opposition. 
Recalls give public the power to remove elected officials from office before the end of their term, although this is very rare in modern democracies.[3] Writers with anarchist sympathies have argued that direct democracy is opposed to a strong central authority, as decision making power can only reside at one level – with the people themselves or with the central authority.[4] Some of the most important modern thinkers who were inspired by the concept of direct democracy are Cornelius Castoriadis, Hannah Arendt, and Pierre Clastres.

HISTORY

ATHENS

The earliest known direct democracy is said to be the Athenian democracy in the 5th century BC, although it was not an inclusive democracy: women, foreigners and slaves were excluded from it. The main bodies in the Athenian democracy were the assembly, composed of male citizens; theboulê, composed of 500 citizens; and the law courts, composed of a massive number of jurors chosen by lot, with no judges. 
There were only about 30,000 male citizens, but several thousand of them were politically active in each year, and many of them quite regularly for years on end. The Athenian democracy was direct not only in the sense that decisions were made by the assembled people, but also in the sense that the people through the assembly, boulê and law courts controlled the entire political process and a large proportion of citizens were involved constantly in the public business.[5] Modern democracies do not resemble the Athenian system.

ROME

Also relevant is the history of Ancient Rome, specifically the Roman Republic, beginning around 509 BC.[6] The ancient Roman Republic had a system of citizen lawmaking, or citizen formulation and passage of law, and a citizen veto of legislature-made law. Many historians mark the end of the Republic with the passage of a law named the Lex Titia, 27 November 43 BC.[6] 
Yet Rome displayed many aspects of democracy, both direct and indirect, from the era of Roman monarchyall the way to the collapse of the Roman Empire. Indeed the Senate, formed in the first days of the city, lasted through the Kingdom, Republic, and Empire, and even continued after the decline of Western Rome; and its structure and regulations continue to influence legislative bodies worldwide.

SWITZERLAND

Modern-era citizen lawmaking began in the towns of Switzerland in the 13th century. In 1847, the Swiss added the “statute referendum” to their national constitution. They soon discovered that merely having the power to veto Parliament’s laws was not enough. In 1891, they added the “constitutional amendment initiative”. Swiss politics since 1891 have given the world a valuable experience base with the national-level constitutional amendment initiative.[7] In the past 120 years, more than 240 initiatives have been put to referenda. 

USA

The populace has been conservative, approving only about 10% of these initiatives; in addition, they have often opted for a version of the initiative rewritten by government. (See Direct democracy in Switzerland below.) Another example is the United States, where, despite being a federal republic where no direct democracy exists at the federal level, almost half the states (and many localities) provide for citizen-sponsored ballot initiatives (also called “ballot measures” or “ballot questions”) and the vast majority of the states have either initiatives and/or referendums. (See Direct democracy in the United States below.)
Some of the issues surrounding the related notion of a direct democracy using the Internet and other communications technologies are dealt with in e-democracy and below under the termelectronic direct democracy. More concisely, the concept of open source governance applies principles of the free software movement to the governance of people, allowing the entire populace to participate in government directly, as much or as little as they please.

EXAMPLE; ANCIENT ATHENS

Main article: Athenian democracy
Athenian democracy developed in the Greek city-state of Athens, comprising the city of Athens and the surrounding territory of Attica, around 500 BC. Athens was one of the very first known democracies. Other Greek cities set up democracies, and even though most followed an Athenian model, none were as powerful, stable, or well-documented as that of Athens. In the direct democracy of Athens, the citizens did not nominate representatives to vote on legislation and executive bills on their behalf (as in the United States) but instead voted as individuals. Participation was by no means open, but the in-group of participants was constituted with no reference to economic class[citation needed] and they participated on a big scale. The public opinionof voters was influenced by the political satire of the comic poets in the theatres.[8]
Solon (594 BC), Cleisthenes (508-7 BC), and Ephialtes (462 BC) all contributed to the development of Athenian democracy. Historians differ on which of them was responsible for which institution, and which of them most represented a truly democratic movement. It is most usual to date Athenian democracy from Cleisthenes, since Solon’s constitution fell and was replaced by the tyranny of Peisistratus, whereas Ephialtes revised Cleisthenes’ constitution relatively peacefully. Hipparchus, the brother of the tyrant Hippias, was killed by Harmodius and Aristogeiton, who were subsequently honored by the Athenians for their alleged restoration of Athenian freedom.
The greatest and longest-lasting democratic leader was Pericles; after his death, Athenian democracy was twice briefly interrupted by oligarchic revolution towards the end of thePeloponnesian War. It was modified somewhat after it was restored under Eucleides; the most detailed accounts are of this 4th-century modification rather than of the Periclean system. It was suppressed by the Macedonians in 322 BC. The Athenian institutions were later revived, but the extent to which they were a real democracy is debatable.[9]

SWITZERLAND

In Switzerland, with no need to register, every citizen receives the ballot papers and information brochure for each vote, and can return it by post. Switzerland has various directly democratic instruments; votes are organised about four times a year.
Further information: Landsgemeinde and Federal popular initiative
Direct democracy only exists in the Swiss cantons of Appenzell Innerrhoden and Glarus.[10] The Swiss confederation is a semi-direct democracy (representative democracy with instruments of direct democracy).[10]
Most western countries have representative systems.[10]Switzerland is a rare example of a country with instruments of direct democracy (at the level of the towns, cantons and federal state). Citizens have more power than in a representative democracy. At the federal level, citizens can propose changes to the constitution (federal popular initiative) or ask for a referendum to be held on any law voted by the parliament.[10] Between January 1995 and June 2005, Swiss citizens voted 31 times, on 103 questions. During the same period, French citizens participated in only two referendums.[10]
In Switzerland, simple majorities are sufficient at the town, city, and canton level, but at the national level, double majorities are required on constitutional issues, in order to demonstrate the legitimacy of any citizen-made law.[7]
A double majority requires approval by a majority of individuals voting, and also by a majority of cantons. Thus in Switzerland a citizen-proposed law (i.e. initiative) cannot be passed at the national level if a majority of the people approve but a majority of the cantons disapprove.[7] For referendums or propositions in general terms (like the principle of a general revision of the Constitution), a majority of those voting is sufficient (Swiss constitution, 2005).
In 1890, when the provisions for Swiss national citizen lawmaking were being debated by civil society and government, the Swiss adopted the idea of double majorities from the United States Congress, in which House votes were to represent the people and Senate votes were to represent the states.[7] According to its supporters, this “legitimacy-rich” approach to national citizen lawmaking has been very successful. Kris Kobach claims that Switzerland has had tandem successes both socially and economically which are matched by only a few other nations. Kobach states at the end of his book, “Too often, observers deem Switzerland an oddity among political systems. It is more appropriate to regard it as a pioneer.” Finally, the Swiss political system, including its direct democratic devices in a multi-level governance context, becomes increasingly interesting for scholars of European Union integration [11]

UNITED STATES

Direct democracy was not what the framers of the United States Constitution envisioned for the nation. They saw a danger in tyranny of the majority. As a result, they advocated a representative democracy in the form of a constitutional republic over a direct democracy. For example, James Madison, in Federalist No. 10 advocates a constitutional republic over direct democracy precisely to protect the individual from the will of the majority. He says,
Those who hold and those who are without property have ever formed distinct interests in society. Those who are creditors, and those who are debtors, fall under a like discrimination. A landed interest, a manufacturing interest, a mercantile interest, a moneyed interest, with many lesser interests, grow up of necessity in civilized nations, and divide them into different classes, actuated by different sentiments and views. The regulation of these various and interfering interests forms the principal task of modern legislation, and involves the spirit of party and faction in the necessary and ordinary operations of the government.
[A] pure democracy, by which I mean a society consisting of a small number of citizens, who assemble and administer the government in person, can admit no cure for the mischiefs of faction. A common passion or interest will be felt by a majority, and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party. Hence it is, that democracies have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.[12]
John Witherspoon, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, said “Pure democracy cannot subsist long nor be carried far into the departments of state – it is very subject to caprice and the madness of popular rage.” Alexander Hamilton said, “That a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure, deformity.”[13]
Despite the framers’ intentions in the beginning of the republic, ballot measures and their corresponding referendums have been widely used at the state and sub-state level. There is much state and federal case law, from the early 1900s to the 1990s, that protects the people’s right to each of these direct democracy governance components (Magleby, 1984, and Zimmerman, 1999). The first United States Supreme Court ruling in favor of the citizen lawmaking was in Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph Company v. Oregon, 223 U.S. 118 in 1912 (Zimmerman, December 1999). President Theodore Roosevelt, in his “Charter of Democracy” speech to the 1912 Ohio constitutional convention, stated “I believe in the Initiative and Referendum, which should be used not to destroy representative government, but to correct it whenever it becomes misrepresentative.”[14]
In various states, referendums through which the people rule include:
Referrals by the legislature to the people of “proposed constitutional amendments” (constitutionally used in 49 states, excepting only Delaware – Initiative & Referendum Institute, 2004).
Referrals by the legislature to the people of “proposed statute laws” (constitutionally used in all 50 states – Initiative & Referendum Institute, 2004).

US CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT INITIATIVE

Constitutional amendment initiative is a constitutionally-defined petition process of “proposed constitutional law”, which, if successful, results in its provisions being written directly into the state’s constitution. Since constitutional law cannot be altered by state legislatures, this direct democracy component gives the people an automatic superiority and sovereignty, over representative government (Magelby, 1984). 
It is utilized at the state level in nineteen states:Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan,Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregonand South Dakota (Cronin, 1989). Among these states, there are three main types of the constitutional amendment initiative, with different degrees of involvement of the state legislature distinguishing between the types (Zimmerman, December 1999).
Statute law initiative is a constitutionally-defined, citizen-initiated, petition process of “proposed statute law”, which, if successful, results in law being written directly into the state’s statutes. The statute initiative is used at the state level in twenty-one states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah,Washington and Wyoming (Cronin, 1989). Note that, in Utah, there is no constitutional provision for citizen lawmaking. All of Utah’s I&R law is in the state statutes (Zimmerman, December 1999). In most states, there is no special protection for citizen-made statutes; the legislature can begin to amend them immediately.
Statute law referendum is a constitutionally-defined, citizen-initiated, petition process of the “proposed veto of all or part of a legislature-made law”, which, if successful, repeals the standing law. It is used at the state level in twenty-four states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming (Cronin, 1989).
The recall is a constitutionally-defined, citizen-initiated, petition process, which, if successful, removes an elected official from office by “recalling” the official’s election. In most state and sub-state jurisdictions having this governance component, voting for the ballot that determines the recall includes voting for one of a slate of candidates to be the next office holder, if the recall is successful. It is utilized at the state level in nineteen states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan,Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington and Wisconsin (National Conference of State Legislatures, 2011, Recall Of State Officials).
There are now a total of 24 U.S. states with constitutionally-defined, citizen-initiated, direct democracy governance components (Zimmerman, December 1999). In the United States, for the most part only one-time majorities are required (simple majority of those voting) to approve any of these components.
In addition, many localities around the U.S. also provide for some or all of these direct democracy governance components, and in specific classes of initiatives (like those for raising taxes), there is a supermajority voting threshold requirement. Even in states where direct democracy components are scant or nonexistent at the state level, there often exists local options for deciding specific issues, such as whether a county should be “wet” or “dry” in terms of whether alcohol sales are allowed.
In the U.S. region of New England, many municipalities (styled towns in contrast to cities) practice a very limited form of home rule, and decide local affairs through the direct democratic process of the town meeting.[1]

DEMOCRATIC REFORM TRILEMMA

Democratic theorists have identified a trilemma due to the presence of three desirable characteristics of an ideal system of direct democracy, which are challenging to deliver all at once. These three characteristics are participation – widespread participation in the decision making process by the people affected; deliberation – a rational discussion where all major points of view are weighted according to evidence; and equality – all members of the population on whose behalf decisions are taken have an equal chance of having their views taken into account. Empirical evidence from dozens of studies suggests deliberation leads to better decision making.[4][15][16] Most popularly disputed form of direct popular participation is the referendum on constitutional matters.[17]
However, the more participants there are the more time and money is needed to set up good quality discussions with clear neutrally presented briefings. Also it is hard for each individual to contribute substantially to the discussion when large numbers are involved.
For the system to respect the principle of political equality, either everyone needs to be involved or there needs to be a representative random sample of people chosen to take part in the discussion. In the definition used by scholars such as James Fishkin, deliberative democracy is a form of direct democracy which satisfies the requirement for deliberation and equality but does not make provision to involve everyone who wants to be included in the discussion. 
Participatory democracy, by Fishkin’s definition, allows inclusive participation and deliberation, but at a cost of sacrificing equality – because widespread participation is allowed there will rarely be sufficient resources to compensate people who give up their time to take part in the deliberation, and so the participants tend to be those with a strong interest in the issue to be decided, and therefore will often not be representative of the overall population.[18] Fishkin instead argues that random sampling should be used to select a small but still representative number of people from the general public.[3][4]
Fishkin concedes it is possible to imagine a system that transcends the trilemma, but it would require very radical reforms if such a system is to be integrated into mainstream politics. To an extent, the Occupy movement attempted to create a system that satisfies all three desirable requirements at once, but at a cost of the resulting system being widely criticized for being slow and unwieldy.[3][19][20][21]

ELECTRONIC DIRECT DEMOCRACY

Main article: E-democracy
Electronic direct democracy (EDD), also known as direct digital democracy (DDD),[22] is a form of direct democracy which utilizes telecommunications to facilitate public participation. Electronic direct democracy is sometimes referred to by other names, such as open source governance and collaborative governance.[23]
EDD requires electronic voting or some way to register votes on issues electronically. As in any direct democracy, in an EDD, citizens would have the right to vote on legislation, author new legislation, and recall representatives (if any representatives are preserved).
Technology for supporting EDD has been researched and developed at the Florida Institute of Technology,[24] where the technology is used with student organizations. Numerous other software development projects are underway,[25] along with many supporting and related projects.[26] Several of these projects are now collaborating on a cross-platform architecture, under the umbrella of the Metagovernment project.[27]
EDD as a system is not fully implemented in a political government anywhere in the world, although several initiatives are currently forming. Ross Perot was a prominent advocate of EDD when he advocated “electronic town halls” during his 1992 and 1996 presidential campaigns in the United States. Switzerland, already partially governed by direct democracy, is making progress towards such a system.[28] 
Senator Online, an Australian political party running for the Senate in the 2007 federal elections, proposed to institute an EDD system so that Australians can decide which way the senators vote on each and every bill.[29] A similar initiative was formed 2002 in Sweden where the party Aktivdemokrati, running for the Swedish parliament, offers its members the power to decide the actions of the party over all or some areas of decision, or alternatively to use a proxy with immediate recall for one or several areas. Since early 2011 EDD parties are working together on the Participedia wiki E2D
The first mainstream direct democracy party to be registered with any country’s electoral commission [checked against each country’s register] is the UK’s People’s Administration Direct Democracy party.[30] The People’s Administration have developed and published the complete architecture for a legitimate reform to EDD [including the required Parliamentary reform process]. 
Established by musicians and political activists, the People’s Administration advocates using the web and telephone to enable the majority electorate to create, propose and vote upon all policy implementation. The People’s Administration’s blueprint has been published in various forms since 1998 and the People’s Administration is the first direct democracy party registered in a vote-able format anywhere in the world – making transition possible through evolution via election with legitimate majority support, instead of potentially through revolution via violence.

RELATION TO OTHER MOVEMENTS

Anarchists have advocated forms of direct democracy as an alternative to the centralized state and capitalism; however, others (such as individualist anarchists) have criticized direct democracy and democracy in general for ignoring the rights of the minority, and instead have advocated a form of consensus decision-making
Libertarian Marxists, however, fully support direct democracy in the form of the proletarian republic and see majority rule and citizen participation as virtues. The Young Communist League USA in particular refers to representative democracy as “bourgeois democracy”, implying that they see direct democracy as “true democracy”.[31]

DIRECT DEMOCRACY IN SCHOOLS

A democratic school is a school that centers on providing a democratic educational environment featuring “full and equal” participation from students and staff. These learning environments position youth voice as the central actor in the educative process by engaging students in every facet of school operations, including learning, teaching, leadership, justice, and democracy, through experience.[32][33] Adult staff support students by offering facilitation according to students’ interests.
Sudbury model of democratic education schools are run by a School Meeting where the students and staff participate exclusively and equally. Everyone who wishes to attend can vote, and there are no proxies. As with direct democracy elsewhere, participants are usually only those who have an interest in the topic.[34]
Summerhill School in England has operated a direct democracy approach to decision making for over 90 years and has often come into conflict with the UK government as a result. The school won an appeal to the High Court in 1999 after it was threatened with closure. A joint statement confirmed that: “The minister recognised the school had a right to its own philosophy and that any inspection should take into account its aims as an international ‘free’ school … both sides went on record as agreeing that the pupils’ voice should be fully represented in any evaluation of the quality of education at Summerhill and that inspections must consider the full breadth of learning at the school – learning was not confined to lessons”.[35

Sacrifice Zones, Nuclear Power and the Sacrificial Victims System Is Spreading Globally As Part Of Predatory Capitalism

HANFORD AND ONE MILLION YEAR NUCLEAR GARBAGE SITES AS A ‘SACRIFICE ZONE’ 

Abby Martin takes a look at the ongoing nuclear crisis at the Hanford Nuclear site in Washington State, as yet another example of a ‘Sacrifice Zone’ where the most vulnerable among us are most at risk. Hanford is just one of countless areas that have become sacrifice zones, where people no longer matter, human suffering is reduced to dollars and cents, and children are expendable, just like rats in a laboratory. Every site where nuclear waste has to be stored for millions of years is a nuclear sacrifice zone, and still poses dangers, despite it being radioactive garbage. And that is not even considering the cost to build, bunker and then store the waste, all at taxpayer cost.

FUKUSHIMA ON 3/11 CREATED A NUCLEAR SACRIFICE ZONE; A LARGE PART OF JAPAN

Fukushima is another one of those sacrifice zones, which was established on 3/11. Here is what The Asia Pacific Journal thinks about this…
“The Asia-Pacific Journal, Vol. 12, Issue 19, No. 1, May 12, 2014.

What March 11 Means to Me: Nuclear Power and the Sacrificial System 私にとっての3・11 原子力発電と犠牲のシステム

Takahashi Tetsuya; Introduction and Translation by Norma Field, Yuki Miyamoto and Tomomi Yamaguchi

Summary; Takahashi Tetsuya, a philosophy professor at the University of Tokyo and a native of Fukushima Prefecture, has traversed the devastated region numerous times since the March 11 disaster, engaging in various kinds of activism. An introduction by the translators is followed by an English translation of Takahashi’s speech at the University of Chicago on March 10, 2012, and a postscript written by Takahashi in May 2014. Takahashi explains “nuclear-power-as-sacrificial-system” via his childhood memories in Fukushima and the People’s Tribunal against Nuclear Power Plants.
The Fukushima Daiichi Disaster and the Global Nuclear Village
Takahashi Tetsuya delivered his talk at the University of Chicago on March 10, 2012, one year after the East Japan Earthquake and the outbreak of a major disaster at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The talk was delivered at the symposium, “What 3.11 Means to Me: A Symposium in Honor of Norma Field,” to commemorate the career of Norma Field, who was retiring from her position as professor at the University of Chicago. The two-day symposium featured five speakers from Japan who shared their personal experiences and information from scholarly and activist perspectives related to the disaster of March 11, 2011. Takahashi’s talk begins with his boyhood memories and anguish over what happened in Fukushima, as a Fukushima native and a Tokyo resident consuming the electricity produced at Fukushima Daiichi. 
He goes on to discuss a “people’s tribunal” organized to pursue the responsibility for the disaster of TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) and nine individuals in charge at the central government and TEPCO. His focus is on nuclear energy as a “sacrificial system” – a concept elaborated in his book, The Sacrificial System: Fukushima Okinawa (Gisei no shisutemu Fukushima Okinawa, Shueisha 2012).
“Takahashi Tetsuya with Yuki Miyamoto (left) and Tomomi Yamaguchi (center) at the “What March 11 Means to Me” symposium. Photo by Kathryn Tanaka.
Two years have passed since the symposium. The disaster at Fukushima is ongoing. Radiation concerns persist, and there are still more than 130,000 people who live as refugees from Fukushima.1
Cleanup workers at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant struggle in precarious working conditions.2 
The Fukushima residents’ complaint, which sought prosecutorial investigation with the possibility of indicting those in positions of responsibility in TEPCO, the government, and academic experts, deliberately filed with the Fukushima Prosecutors Office, was summarily turned over to the Tokyo Prosecutors Office, lumped with other cases and dismissed just before the announcement of Tokyo’s selection for the 2020 Olympics (an occasion made memorable by Prime Minister Abe Shinzo’s assurances that the contaminated water situation in Fukushima was “under control,” a claim promptly denied by none other than a senior TEPCO official).4 
The group narrowed their list and brought their case to the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution.
In the meanwhile, elections have been won by promoters of nuclear energy, most prominently, the victory of the LDP under Prime Minister Abe in December 2012, and gubernatorial elections in Tokyo and Yamaguchi Prefectures in 2014. In a landscape where no nuclear power plant is in operation as of May 2014, the LDP-led government is pushing for restarts, beginning with the Sendai Nuclear Power Plant in Kagoshima in August this year.6
This past March (2014), one of the co-authors of this Introduction, Tomomi Yamaguchi, visited the University of Oklahoma to give a talk on the anti-nuclear movement in Japan as a part of a lecture series titled “Japan in Disaster,” organized by anthropologist Bridget Love. Discussing the state of antinuclear movements in Tokyo, Yamaguchi mentioned Takahashi Tetsuya’s critique of the nuclear power industry as a “sacrificial system,” a “system in which the benefits accruing to some parties are made possible at the expense of others’ lives (whether as biological existence, health, daily routine, property, dignity, or hope).” 
Yamaguchi used the concept to explain the structural discrimination that exists between urban Tokyo and Fukushima, a predominantly rural region 160 miles away. Tokyo residents benefited from the plant, while being quite far from it, muting their sense of the dangers or environmental concerns connected with nuclear power.”

It is important to understand that the concept of sacrifice is usually seen as a positive thing, but in the context of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons, sacrificing people’s lives is coming from a totally negative, power and short term profit motivated agenda. Nuclear energy and everything associated with it is worshiping death, destruction and genetic Armageddon, in the long term, even if everything goes right with it, which is not possible. Let’s dive in and see how many ways people, animals and plants are being forced to sacrifice themselves for the sake of short term profits in the nuclear energy industry. 

TOKYO AS A SACRIFICE ZONE

Because radiation is invisible, a sacrificed and radiation contaminated city like Tokyo can seem normal and safe, while at the same time, it is causing immense amount of suffering..

JAPANESE GOVERNMENT IS SACRIFICING IT’S OWN PEOPLE, MOVING THEM INTO HIGH RADIATION ZONES

All around the world, many millions of people are living in radiation contaminated areas. Some of these areas, such as Belarus, are very contaminated, and other areas are less contaminated with man made radiation. In Japan, what used to be clean, is now dirty and full of radioactive fallout. The official government policy is that these areas are ‘clean’ and they are moving people back into them as sacrifices to the nuclear industry.

NUMBER OF SACRIFICES DUE TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Exploding 2,400 nuclear bombs has consequences. One cannot wage the equivalent of a global nuclear war and not have sacrifices. Everyone in the world is a downwinder to the invisible radioactive poisons that are still raining down on everyone. This killing and sacrificing will not end for tens of thousands of years, because the plutonium, uranium and other deadly poisons released by all of those weapons will circle the globe and keep on killing for a million years.

Again, the costs of maintaining existing nuclear weapons is growing exponentially, eating up more and more of the military budget. These WMD weapons are supposed to be destroyed, not made like new again and modernized to become even more lethal.

NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE SACRIFICIAL ALTERS WHERE NUCLEAR WORKERS AND CHILDREN ARE SACRIFICED

In the days of old, at least one culture sacrificed conquered enemies to the Sun God. Now, the nuclear industry sacrifices children to the God of nuclear power; Rad and his consort Iation. Workers are sacrificed on the alter of nuclear power, by working in these plants, and being exposed to much higher levels of radiation than the average citizen.

According to the video, in Fukushima and other towns, the business owners forced the mayor to keep people in town and and not allow the children to be evacuated. If everyone leaves town and does not come back, the business owners will suffer and go bankrupt. In this way, nuclear energy plants force parents and local small businesses to sacrifice both themselves and their loved ones on the alter of nuclear power.

Meanwhile the government and TEPCO are not paying settlements as they initially promised and agreed to, thus creating a lose lose situation for residents. They cannot afford to move, and thus are trapped in high radiation zones as sacrifices to the nuclear industry.

Some mothers and children move further away from Fukushima to lower their risk from radiation contamination and exposure, but the children are still sacrificed if the fathers stay behind to work at places like Fukushima Daichi. Either way, the children are sacrificed.

Infants, fetuses and children are the most vulnerable to invisible radiation plumes coming from nuclear accidents such as Chernobyl, TMI, Santa Susana, and Fukushima. Just in a few months, Fukushima caused over 14,000 additional infant mortalities in the US, as the poisonous plume traveled downwind, after the 3/11 mega nuclear disaster in Japan.

URANIUM MINERS AND PROCESSORS ARE SACRIFICED TO THE NUCLEAR GOD – RAD

The nuclear industry comes in promising jobs and a great future, but when the companies leave town, they leave a huge toxic mess, blowing radioactive dust and diseases, cancer and death behind. Uranium miners and their families plus communities are sacrificed on the nuclear power and weapons alter.

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS A RIGGED FINANCIAL SYSTEM

Many people stay and live in radiation contaminated areas, or near nuclear facilities, essentially doubling down on a losing life and health bet, over and over again. There is no way to win this game, in the same way that the Keiser Report explains, in the Suicide Sacrifice to the God of the Market. There is no chance of winning more life and health with nuclear power in the long term. With nuclear power and nuclear weapons, there is no way to win long term, but there are many ways to lose everything. 
What other industry demands the direct and IMMEDIATE sacrifice of 1 MILLION people after the Chernobyl disaster, in order to prevent dooming the whole world and all living beings on it? What other industry could not only survive this kind of a disaster that involved 1 million sacrifices, but then keep on doing more of the same, with no changes at all?

The Chernobyl Sacrifice; 1 MILLION Liquidators
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/chernobyl-sacrifice-1-million.html

The Fukushima mega nuclear disaster was MUCH larger than Chernobyl. The number of sacrifices that will be demanded will be much larger than Chernobyl. So far, most of those sacrificed animals, plants, humans, sea creatures and insects have been completely hidden and denied, for very good reason. If people knew and understood, they would be calling for prison sentences and the shutdown of all nuclear plants globally, IMMEDIATELY. 

SUPER SOLAR STORM WILL CAUSE THE SACRIFICE ALL OF HUMANITY AND ALL LIFE ON EARTH FOR THE SAKE OF NUCLEAR POWER

What is coming in the future if humanity keeps on building and using nuclear power plants? A super solar storm will knock out all power on planet Earth, via a huge EMP pulse, called the Carrington Effect, and cause all 400 nuclear power plants and their 400 spent fuel pools to melt down and then out, just like Fukushima. Humanity cannot live through the Carrington Event, if nuclear power plants are still operating and running. Find out more via this link…

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY FORCED TO LIE IN ORDER TO KEEP ON GETTING WILLING SACRIFICE VICTIMS

Just as sacrificial victims were told that they would be doing a ‘noble’ service for humanity to ensure good harvests as their hearts were being cut out on sacrificial alters, so the nuclear industry promises jobs, clean energy and enduring prosperity and health as part of their cultish belief system that was born in secrecy, and continues that way today.

SACRIFICIAL NUCLEAR REFUGEES POEM 

By or-well September 4, 2014

Nuke refugees – what an annoyance –
they run from their jobs
and stop paying their mortgage!
They run away, want financial assistance
and when told to go back
they offer resistance!
They want shelter and blankets and even hot meals
but they can’t afford shopping for the latest deals
so they aren’t even helping to grease profit’s wheels!
They just bug everybody, making constant appeals
for attention and health care for their sick kids
like it’s our fault they’re ill when it’s really stress
induced by the parents who think they know best,
ignoring Nuke Science and all those good rads
– it’s hormesis! –
and that can be proved by our Health Physicists
who know radiophobia is what creates cysts
so we’re ending compensation and then we’ll insist
they all go back home and be consumerists.”

SUMMARY

Of course, this article can only point at the very tiny tip of the iceberg. The sacrifices will keep piling up from here, all around the world, as long as humanity keeps on using nuclear power and pointing nuclear weapons at other nations. Let’s leave with a positive, hopeful vision of the future, which can be accomplished by turning off all nuclear power plants and dismantling all nuclear weapons, while developing renewable energy technologies, which are outlined and detailed inside the Science Of Sustainable Health,via the links below.

The Marshall Islanders Filed Lawsuit; Sue Russia, Britain, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korean WMD Nuclear Missile Countries For Not Reducing Their Nuclear Weapons Arsenals


http://youtu.be/ozi8zsidLWE

The Marshall Islands is one of the most radiation contaminated areas on the planet. They filed a lawsuit against nuclear states for not reducing their arsenals. In the Now we look at whether this call for action is realistic.
The nuclear armed nations are not taking their responsibility seriously under the nuclear arms disarmament treaty. They are supposed to be negotiating to completely eliminate nuclear weapons. 
The International Court of Justice in 1996 actually agreed that these countries are obligated under the treaty to do what they promised to do.

Published on Apr 26, 2014
The Pacific nation of the Marshall Islands is taking on the United States and the other eight heavyweight nuclear-armed nations with an unprecedented lawsuit, accusing them of “flagrant violations” of international law.The island group filed legal claims on Wednesday against each of the nine countries – Russia, Britain, France, China, Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea – in the International Court of Justice in the Hague, Netherlands.
The islands have accused the countries of violating the 1958 Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and provisions under its “customary international law”. The Marshall Islands claims that the countries are modernising their nuclear arsenals instead of taking steps towards disarmament.
It estimates the countries will spend $1 trillion on those arsenals over the next decade.”I personally see it as kind of David and Goliath, except that there are no slingshots involved,” David Krieger, president of the California-based Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, told the Associated Press. He is acting as a consultant in the case.
Our people have suffered the catastrophic and irreparable damage of these weapons, and we vow to fight so that no one else on earth will ever again experience these atrocities.Tony de Brum, Marshall Islands foreign ministerNotably, none of the countries had been informed in advance of the lawsuits.Spokespeople from the US embassy in the Netherlands said they could not immediately comment.
Paul Hirschson, a spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry said he was unaware of the lawsuit, however commented that it “doesn’t sound relevant because we are not members of the nuclear nonproliferation treaty”.”It sounds like it doesn’t have any legal legs,” he said, adding that he was not a legal expert.
The Marshall Islands has a long history of nuclear testing.The islands were the site of 67 nuclear tests by the United States over a 12-year period which contributed to, if not caused, lasting health and environmental problems.”Our people have suffered the catastrophic and irreparable damage of these weapons, and we vow to fight so that no one else on earth will ever again experience these atrocities,” the country’s foreign minister, Tony de Brum, said in a statement.
The country is seeking action, not compensation. It wants the courts to require that the nine nuclear-armed states meet their obligations.”There hasn’t been a case where individual governments are saying to the nuclear states, ‘You are not complying with your disarmament obligations’,” John Burroughs, executive director of the New York-based Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Policy, part of the international pro bono legal team, told the AP. 
“This is a contentious case that could result in a binding judgment.”Several Nobel Peace Prize winners are said to support the legal action, including South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Iranian-born rights lawyer Shirin Ebadi.In 1996 the International Court of Justice said unanimously that an obligation existed to bring the disarmament negotiations to a conclusion but instead “progress towards disarmament has essentially been stalemated,” Burroughs said.Krieger said the Marshall Islands foreign minister approached additional countries about filing suit as well.”I think there is some interest, but I’m not sure anybody is ready,” he said.”

Fukushima Workers Suing Tepco, TEPCO Changes Mind On 8,000 Already Approved Legal Settlements, Refuses To Pay Anything

9/1/14 Fukushima Daiichi workers to sue TEPCO

Workers at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant are planning to sue Tokyo Electric Power Company, demanding it pay wages suited for the dangerous work. Four male workers at a TEPCO subcontractor will file a lawsuit at the Iwaki branch of the Fukushima district court on Wednesday. The workers are doing plumbing work on tanks that store radioactive water at the plant. They say their wages are too low considering the risk of radiation exposure they face. The workers are demanding TEPCO pay each of them about 96-thousand dollars in compensation. They say their wages haven’t changed even after TEPCO announced an increase in labor payments to subcontractors by around 96 dollars last November.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20140901_15.html?play

9/2/14 Lawyers call on TEPCO to accept settlements

Lawyers with the Japan Federation of Bar Associations told reporters on Monday that TEPCO is not honoring its promise to respect proposals from the Science Ministry’s dispute settlement center. The ministry established the center in 2011 in order to mediate disputes between TEPCO and residents who have serious claims against the utility following the accident at the Fukushima plant. More than 8,000 cases have been settled since the center started accepting applications 3 years ago. But the lawyers said TEPCO have recently rejected a series of the center’s settlement proposals. They include a class action suit filed by more than 15,000 residents of the town of Namie.
A JFBA lawyer in charge of compensation for the nuclear accident, Yuichi Kaido, said the center has had a significant meaning for restoring the rights of the victims of the Fukushima accident who cannot directly negotiate with TEPCO. But he said he is increasingly worried about the utility’s response. He said TEPCO promised to respect settlement proposals in its business plan earlier this year. He said the firm is instead causing the residents further suffering by rejecting the offers.
http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20140902_01.html

According to Reuters and NHK, the nuclear workers provided evidence in court that there are four layers of subcontractors underneath the prime contractor at Fukushima. The workers are at the end of a cash skimming operation that takes a cut of the pay of each worker for each day’s work. At the end of this line of contractors all lined up to cash in, the worker receives much less than the original amount promised.
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/09/03/us-japan-nuclear-fukushima-idUSKBN0GY02120140903

The problems are just starting at Fukushima, and conditions are getting worse by the year.

International Beach Sand Radiation Readings; Lists Specific Resort Beaches All Around The World, Hawaii, Brazil, Japan, Many Other Countries

Why would anyone want to test dry sand or dried seaweed on beaches for radiation levels? According to scientific research, radioactive substances can wash up on beaches, and/or concentrate there via sea spray. Dry materials like sand or washed up dried out seaweeds and dead sea critters are much easier to test than water, because water blocks and absorbs radiation. 
Testing sand, seaweed and critters laying on beaches is something that any average citizen scientist that own a radiation detector can do, while testing ocean water is impossible without special equipment available only in nuclear laboratories. While Geiger counters cannot determine the specific radioactive element, it can warn of danger, and give a heads up to a community.

UK SELLAFIELD

arclight July 17, 2012  anyone get any sea sediment samples… some food for thought here
“..Record number of radioactive particles found on beaches near Sellafield
Seven beaches contained 383 particles found in 2020-11, while Sellafield insists health risks are ‘very low’…” “…But the HPA has also pointed to a series of “uncertainties” in the beach monitoring that could lead to its risk assessment being reviewed. The latest equipment might miss tiny specks that could be inhaled, it said, as well as buried alpha radioactivity that “could give rise to a significant risk to health if ingested”.
A local environmental group expressed concern that in some areas, particles seemed to reappear after they had been cleaned up. “This warrants closure of the beaches or at least the erection of warning signs for parents and others of the health dangers posed,” said Janine Allis-Smith, from Cumbrians Opposed to a Radioactive Environment. Documents released under freedom of information law show that in 2010 the Environment Agency agreed that monitoring for contamination on the beaches should avoid peak periods such as during bank holidays. This followed a complaint from St Bees parish council expressing “strong concern that this would have an adverse impact on tourism.”..”
Alpha particles don’t show up on Geigers unless you are right on them..”

Plutonium in Childrens’ Teeth. [ 11 December 2003]
The presence of BNFL’s plutonium legacy is readily identified in the local environment where river estuary samples show Plutonium 239 & 240 (Pu239 &240) to be present at a level of almost 7000 Bq/kg. A recent study by University College Dublin showed that plutonium contamination of the Solway Firth north of Sellafield was 100 times greater than previously thought. The report also confirmed earlier studies which has shown how, through storm and tidal action, plutonium deposits on the sea bed around Sellafield’s discharge pipeline are driven shorewards and concentrated in sea spray. On land the dried out dust particles are resuspended in air and become available for human intake via inhalation and ingestion. It is estimated that over half a ton of plutonium has been discharged from Sellafield into the Irish Sea over the last 50 years.  Pu 239 has a radioactive half-life of 24,000 years, Pu 240 6,500 years and Pu 241 14.4 years.

FOLLOW UP RADIATION TESTING OF SEA VEGETABLES AND LIVING ORGANISMS ALL THE WAY UP THE FOOD CHAIN NEEDED

What is even more important is to monitor the dried seaweed and other sea animal radiation levels, because all living things concentrate or accumulate radiation. 70% of all radiation accumulated over time in the human body (after an initial plume from accident or nuclear bomb) comes from food and drinks.

Different species will concentrate in different amounts. A lot needs to be tested because one sample can test normal and the next can test 50 Bq/kg, and the next can read 2,000 Bq/kg. Different species will show up with different amounts, so it important to test as many different types as possible to see what is going on in an area.

Unless someone tests 1,000 individual critters of all species involved (seaweed, fish, crabs, shellfish, and then do it on a monthly basis, it is hard to draw any really firm conclusions about average radiation levels in anything, or how they are changing over time. But any radiation reading is better than none, so one beach sand reading is MUCH better than none at all.

Sand is a good starting place to test for radiation, because if sand, debris or seaweed tests high in radiation, then there are potentially more reasons to look at radiation concentrating and accumulating up the food chain to humans as well. That would also be the trigger to call in the EPA or other authorities to identify what is causing the radiation reading specifically.

NATURAL RADIATION IS HARMLESS ‘HORMESIS THEORY’ DEBUNKED

The public does not need empty assurances that all ‘natural’ radiation is ‘safe’, even if the levels are measuring 150,000 CPM per minute. It is also important to understand that even ‘natural’ radiation is potentially hazardous; both radon and thorium have negative health effects.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/08/rachel-maddow-hormesis-promoting.html

To alleviate the doubts and fears among a growing number of US citizens, it is becoming critically important for a trusted lab to do massive amounts of testing on a regular basis in this kind of situation, in order to inform the citizens about what is REALLY going on, instead of empty assurances that everything is safe on the Pacific coast, despite multiple animal species experiencing mass die offs since 2011.

WHAT EFFECT IS RADIATION RELEASED FROM FUKUSHIMA HAVING ON FOOD WEB AND HUMAN BEINGS?

What is really difficult to measure and hard to figure out is; what effects is the 400 to 6000 pounds of plutonium that came out of Fukushima, having on the whole ecosystem and on human beings?

Massive amounts of radiation went into the ocean after 3/11 and that radiation is still pouring into the ocean, without any let up.

Several scientists and studies have documented that plutonium went around the world, and plutonium from Fukushima was measured in the USA and as far away as Lithuania. Why no plutonium showed up at the site above is a mystery, but there are clean and ‘hot’ radiation spots all around the world, so this could be one of this ‘clean’ plutonium areas.

Even much more sophisticated and expensive equipment than what Safecast used on the beach above has a hard time finding low doses of plutonium in animals, beach sand or plants. Tritium is almost impossible to find, and cannot be measured with a normal Geiger counter. 
Plutonium contamination is present all over the world, even if it is at very low levels. The question is; what effect is it having? How does one track very low doses of plutonium through the food chain and living food web ecosystems in the Pacific ocean?

CALLING ALL CITIZEN SCIENTISTS

Do you have a radiation detector, such as the Inspector shown above? Take it with you on vacation, as well as your video recorder. Take a radiation reading while you are taping it, and post it on Youtube, as in the video above. 
Once you have an international beach sand radiation reading to share with the AGRP network, contact AGRP via email address below, or leave a link to a youtube video providing evidence of your beach sand radiation reading in the comments section below. Your citizen scientist radiation reading may be added to this or future reports.
Start with an air reading, as in the video above, then go down to 1 inch away from the sand. take readings from several places on the beach, as well as any dried seaweed and/or debris washed up on shore. Post your video on Youtube and contact AGRP to have it posted in this article or future updates. Provide a name of the beach, the name of the closest town, current date and counts per minute (CPM) readings, preferably with a pancake style detector, such as the one shown in the video above. 
(Don’t touch the sand or whatever you are testing with your meter, as it may contaminate it and make it useless. Protect it with a baggie, and don’t touch what you are measuring.)

The more radiation measurements that the public has, the better the data. 

AGRP’s goal is to accumulate enough international dry beach sand and seaweed radiation readings, that there will be a baseline to draw from in case of any radical future increases. That way, no one can claim that the high radiation readings were always there, and it is all ‘natural’.

GET YOUR BEACH SAND, DRIED SEAWEED OR OTHER SAMPLE TESTED

It is possible test your soil or water samples for radiation if you do not have a Geiger Counter. The cost to test per sample is only $39. 
If you believe that your soil or water is contaminated  with radioactive contamination, our Alpha-Beta-Gamma detector system for screening low level samples is a simple and cost effective method of detection.  Please call: 1-860-482-6606 Peter Febbroriello, who is working with Safecast, for more details. 
The sample testing is done with a very sensitive 2 inch pancake style detector inside of a lead box, using a timed test. It is possible to test for alpha, beta and gamma radiation at fairly low levels, especially if the sample is dry. More extensive and expensive tests can be done to isolate what the radioactive isotope is, if radiation levels are found that are of a concern.
Once you do get a radiation reading result of your beach sand or other sample, please share your result with AGRP, at agreenroad atsymbol gmail.com 

The video above serves as a reminder about why everyone is doing this sacred work to defend and protect what is given to us in trust for 7 future generations.

Dr. Timothy A. Mousseau Compares Fukushima And Chernobyl Nuclear Catastrophes, Their Effects on Wildlife, Plants, Children

Timothy A. Mousseau is a Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina and he talks about his studies both at Chernobyl and Fukushima, confirming again the hazards and dangers of low doses of radiation on animals.
At 28: minutes in he discusses the UNSCEAR report and says that the report is not objective, because it completely ignores his reports, research and findings in relationship to both Chernobyl and Fukushima. Find out more about this subject at; 

Art And Science Of Deception; Global Corporations And The 1%
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/corporations-art-and-science-of.html

The chart above shows that the number of birds declines as the amount of background radiation increases, both at Chernobyl and at Fukushima.

The next chart shows how as the radiation increases, the number of birds decreases, but so does the number of species.

Contrary to government and pro nuclear apologists, there is now plenty of evidence that low dose radiation does have an effect on insects, animals, plants and human beings. This same graph could be repeated for different sea creatures as well, but no one is studying that..

Just curious, but could you think of a reason why the nuclear industry would not want to know what happens to ocean creatures that are exposed to low dose radiation, and why they are NOT funding any studies in that direction either after Chernobyl or after Fukushima?

2014 – Fukushima Lawsuit Filed, Parents Sue For Evacuation And Compensation

Why are parents suing for compensation and evacuation of their children? The government says everything is safe and people should move back to Fukushima province and live happily ever after. 
Fukushima aftermath: Parents sue for compensation and evacuation in 2014
http://english.cntv.cn/2014/08/29/VIDE1409312640945488.shtml
Here is what one reporter has to say about this…
There is a brief glimpse at one crucial piece of evidence in the above video, which is the thyroid scan of her thyroid, which the doctors say is ‘normal’. Really? 
Does everyone have radioactive Iodine 131 and 134 in their thyroid these days, at a level of 32 Bq/kg, including the children? Certainly, some medical professionals would disagree with this claim of ‘safety and normalcy’. For more information click on links below. 
Maybe her radioactive iodine levels have something to do with the fact that it is still being detected in sewage sludge in various cities, even in 2014.

The reporter in the video above, lived in Japan and went through the nuclear disaster. She did not say when this radioactive iodine test was taken, but it sounds like it was taken in 2013 or 2014. If that is the case, why is radioactive Iodine 131 showing up at all? 
The half life of that element is a matter of days. It should have been gone within a few months after 3/11. Radioactive Iodine 133 has a much longer half life, so that one is harder to say where it is from. Bottom line there should be ZERO radioactive Iodine 131 if this test was taken anytime after 2012. 
There is no mention of radiation test results for the kids, just assurances that are given by the government, that everything is ‘safe’. 
Maybe things are not as safe or as normal as they seem at first glance. After all, the 2,000 poisonous and radioactive elements that came out of Fukushima (and are still pouring out) are all invisible to the human senses. Everything can look, feel, smell, and seem ‘normal’, despite radiation levels that are lethal. 
This video describes how in desperation due to non action by government and nuclear industry, parents sued city governments in 2011 to evacuate their children. Their legal case was dismissed without even being heard. 
“Fukushima, Never Again” tells the story of the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdowns in north east Japan in March of 2011 and exposes the cover-up by Tepco and the Japanese government. 
This is the first film that interviews the Mothers Of Fukushima, nuclear power experts and trade unionists who are fighting for justice and the protection of the children and the people of Japan and the world. The residents and citizens were forced to buy their own geiger counters and radiation dosimeters in order to test their communities to find out if they were in danger. 
The government said contaminated soil in children’s school grounds was safe and then when the people found out it was contaminated and removed the top soil, the government and TEPCO refused to remove it from the school grounds.
It also relays how the nuclear energy program for “peaceful atoms” was brought to Japan under the auspices of the US military occupation and also the criminal cover-up of the safety dangers of the plant by TEPCO and GE management which built the plant in Fukushima. It also interviews Kei Sugaoka, the GE nulcear plant inspector from the bay area who exposed cover-ups in the safety at the Fukushima plant and was retaliated against by GE. 
This documentary allows the voices of the people and workers to speak out about the reality of the disaster and what this means not only for the people of Japan but the people of the world as the US government and nuclear industry continue to push for more new plants and government subsidies. This film debunks the PR story line by the corporate media in Japan, the US and around the world that Fukushima is over and done with.

Mega Drought Evidence; USA And Other Countries – California Could Be Entering 100 To 200 Year Megadrought Period

CALIFORNIA SHOULD BE PREPARING FOR A 100 – 200 YEAR MEGADROUGHT

According to core samples taken by scientists, California is in the driest period since the 1500’s. The scientist being interviewed said California should be prepared for a ONE HUNDRED YEAR DROUGHT. The evidence is there, and like all ‘natural’ cycles, the trees do not lie. Regular mega droughts are part of what happens on just about every continent and in every state. California is no exception to this rule. For some before and after pictures that describe what 1,000 words may have difficulty with, click on the following link, which shows the effect that the drought is having on reservoirs in California.

EVIDENCE OF PAST MEGADROUGHTS

The tree ring sample below is the direct evidence of the ‘natural’ cycles of historical mega droughts, and provides enough evidence to forecast future mega droughts. If California does not get ready and plan for this, there could be massive suffering and consequences. But this natural megadrought cycle does not include human caused global warming, which will only make the next (or present day?) megadrought cycle worse, according to several university studies, detailed below. Why will the next (or present) megadrought be worse?

SNOWPACK DISAPPEARING, PROVIDES MOST DRINKING WATER

Due to global warming around the world, glaciers and snowpacks in the mountains are disappearing. Historically, these glaciers and annual snowpacks melted gradually over the spring and summer months, providing a stable and dependable source of drinking water for cities, as well as for agriculture, industry and animal raising. 

Mega drought in West? Dry conditions increasingly worsen (more details about snowpack and relationship to water supply in the following video)

Fresh water sources are shrinking or disappearing due to a combination of global warming which is causing the receding and disappearing glaciers, plus little or no snowpack during the winter months. The end result is less and less fresh water that can be safely stored and used.

WILDFIRES ACCELERATING AND GROWING LARGER, LONGER AND MORE SEVERE

Reservoirs are down to between 30 or 17% of normal or this time of year. Wildfires are happening in January, 2014, which is supposed to the rainiest and wettest part of the year, with 0 fires in 2013, but over 400 in 2014. As Michio Kaku said, this is “the drought from Hell”, worse than anything seen up to the 1800’s. He calls this a potential catastrophe, or a train wreck in slow motion. 

WHAT IS A MEGADROUGHT?

Wikipedia; “A megadrought (or mega-drought) is a prolonged drought lasting two decades or longer. Past megadroughts have been associated with persistent multiyear La Niña conditions (cooler than normal water temperatures in the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean).[1] The term megadrought is generally used to describe the length of a drought, and not its acute intensity. 
In scientific literature the term is used to describe decades-long droughts or multi-decadal droughts. Multiyear droughts of less than a decade, such as the Dust Bowl drought of the 1930s, are generally not described as megadroughts even though they are of a long duration. In popular literature multiyear or even single year droughts are occasionally described as megadroughts based upon their severity, the economic damage they inflict or other criteria, but this is the exception and not the rule.
Megadroughts have historically led to the mass migration of humans away from drought affected lands, resulting in a significant population decline from pre-drought levels. They are suspected of playing a primary role in the collapse of several pre-industrial civilizations, including the Anasazi of the North American Southwest,[2] the Khmer Empire of Cambodia,[3] the Mayan of Mesoamerica,[4] the Tiwanaku of Bolivia,[5] and the Yuan Dynasty of China.[6] The African Sahel region in particular has suffered multiple megadroughts throughout history, with the most recent lasting from approximately 1400 AD to 1750 AD.[7] 
North America experienced at least four megadroughts during the Medieval Warm Period.[8]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megadrought

HISTORICAL EVIDENCE

Montezuma Bald Cypress tree, 900 years old
There are several sources for establishing the past occurrence and frequency of megadroughts, including:
When megadroughts occur, lakes dry up and trees and other plants grow in the dry lake beds. When the drought ends the lakes refill, when this happens the trees are submerged and die. In some locations these trees have remained preserved and can be studied giving accurate radio-carbon dates, and the tree rings of the same long dead trees can be studied. Such trees have been found in Mono and Tenaya lakes in California, Lake Bosumtwi in Ghana; and various other lakes.[9]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megadrought

TREE RINGS PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF MEGADROUGHTS

Dendrochronology, the dating and study of annual rings in trees. The tree-ring data indicate that the Western states have experienced droughts that lasted ten times longer than anything the modern U.S. has seen. Based on annual tree rings, NOAA has recorded patterns of drought covering most of the U.S. for every year since 1700. Certain species of trees have given evidence over a longer period, in particular Montezuma Cypress and Bristlecone pine trees.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megadrought

UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS PROVIDES MORE EVIDENCE

The University of Arkansas has produced a 1,238-year tree-ring based chronology of weather condition in central Mexico by examining core samples taken from living Montezuma Cypress trees.

UNIVERSITY OF REGINA RESEARCHER SAYS IT COULD GET MUCH WORSE

But University of Regina paleoclimatologist Jeannine-Marie St. Jacques says that decade-long drought is nowhere near as bad as it can get. St. Jacques and her colleagues have been studying tree ring data and, at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference in Vancouver over the weekend, she explained the reality of droughts. “What we’re seeing in the climate records is these megadroughts, and they don’t last a decade—they last 20 years, 30 years, maybe 60 years, and they’ll be semi-continental in expanse,” she told the Regina Leader-Post by phone from Vancouver.

MEGADROUGHTS DOCUMENTED IN CALIFORNIA

During a 200 year mega drought in the Sierra Nevada that lasted from the 9th and 12th centuries, trees would grow on newly exposed shoreline at Fallen Leaf Lake, then as the lake grew once again, the trees were preserved under cold water. [11]

Southwestern U.S. headed for ‘extended megadrought’

But, a new study recently published in the science journal, Nature, suggests the Southwest is headed for a mega drought. Scott Anderson was one of the researchers on the study. He’s a professor of paleoecology and environmental sciences at NAU. He spoke with KNAU’s Gillian Ferris Kohl about the study.

MORE EVIDENCE: ANCIENT SEDIMENT CORE SAMPLES PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF MEGADROUGHTS LASTING 100’s TO 1,000 YEARS

Sediment core samples taken at the volcanic caldera in Valles Caldera, New Mexico and other locations. The cores from Valles Caldera go back 550,000 years and show evidence of megadroughts that lasted as long as 1,000 years during the mid-Pleistocene Epoch during which summer rains were almost non-existent. Plant and pollen remains found in core samples from the bottom of lakes have been also studied and added to the record.
Fossil corals on Palmyra Atoll. Using the relationship between tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures and the oxygen isotope ratio in living corals to convert fossil coral records into sea surface temperatures. This has been used to establish the occurrence and frequency of La Niña conditions.[10]

WATER WARS A REAL POSSIBILITY

When people get desperate, they do crazy things. What happens if and when a major city like Los Angeles or San Diego runs out of water during a megadrought, (as it will)? The article below goes into some of the issues involved in larger more severe droughts and megadroughts. What happens if small towns run out of water before the big cities, and they are located next to the aquaduct that carries water from their area past them to the big cities?

Water Wars; Water Depletion Is A Growing Global Threat; via @AGreenRoad

SUMMARY AND QUESTIONS

The question is; assuming that a ‘natural’ megadrought condition continues for 30, 100 or 200+ years or more, both in California and in other areas of the world, how many people can be supported with the MUCH smaller amount of water that can flow through the ‘new normal’ water system? 
What drastic changes would have to be made to minimize suffering, losses and maximize the number of people that can be supported? An obvious first step is to reduce water use through the largest variety of methods possible. A second and very simple strategy is to increase storage capacity of water that does arrive via rain, but at the building site, not behind dams.

A third strategy is to increase water saving through creative methods.

A fourth strategy is to increase creative means of creating and/or gathering more water from unusual sources. AGRP has the capability to do a pilot project around generating rain via other than chemical methods, using out of the box thinking and techniques that have proven successful in other countries. (Contact AGRP for more details.)

Assuming that sufficient winter rains do not arrive in 2014, RADICAL and QUICK changes will have to be made in many areas of California, as the water supplies in reservoirs run out. Absolute worst case, megadroughts may even mean mass migrations or emergency relocations of large numbers of people, and that also needs to be planned for as a contingency.
Having a contingency plan in place for worst case and starting to make preparations would be a prudent and conservative thing to do, correct? Wouldn’t that be better than just hoping for a best case scenario? Doing nothing and wishing that everything goes back to normal does not work. Denial is ok, but that only works for so long.

IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS

Post any additional potential solutions or ideas in the comments section below, and AGRP will add that to this article…
To end on a positive note, some scientific climate modeling projections based on historical data show that more rain could fall in the future, combined with increasing temperatures. But no one knows for absolutely sure, so it is best to prepare and start taking actions towards the worst case scenario..

1,000 People File Lawsuit Against Manufacturer’s Of Nuclear Reactors; General Electric, Hitachi, Toshiba

Over 1,000 people filed lawsuits against TEPCO and manufacturers, to set precedent against nuclear plant builders. 
While most lawsuits related to Japan’s nuclear disaster have focused on either the plant owner or Japanese government, one group who turned up to court on Monday (March 10) are looking to sue the manufacturers of the nuclear reactors themselves.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant suffered a meltdown of three of its five working reactors after a massive tsunami engulfed the facility three years ago.
A group representing four thousand people is looking to make those who helped build the actual reactors in the Fukushima plant responsible for the disaster as well.
They have already brought one lawsuit against General Electric, Hitachi and Toshiba but filed again on Monday with more claimants, as the current Shinzo Abe government looks to export Japanese nuclear technology overseas.
“We still don’t know the full reasons for the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. Even though we don’t know that, saying that the next reactors are safe is impossible. So looking to take that and export it out of the country and make profit, no matter how you look at it isn’t something you can allow. So we are, of course, against it,” head lawyer Akihiro Shima told Reuters.
Under Japanese law, while the plant operator and government are liable for the disaster, the actual makers of the nuclear reactors themselves face no legal responsibility.
The group has managed to collect 4,000 signatures for the law suit, with many claimants overseas.
The amounts actually being asked though is only 100 yen (about one US dollar) per person. Shima says he wants to focus more on the issue that nuclear manufacturers have escaped blame more than the actual compensation.
“The 100 yen? It’s not enough is it? For this case we thought of a large number of ways to do it but as we’re going against someone, the manufacturers, who under the law are already void from responsibility it’s not normally possible to win,” Shima said.
“We hope to focus the case of whether they (the manufacturers) have responsibility or not, and in order to do that we decided not to focus on how much money we would ask for,” he said.

On the eve of commemorations of the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, many other other groups around the nation have also filed for lawsuits on Monday (March 10) against both the government and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco). Japanese media said lawsuits have been filed in courts in Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe and Kyoto. At least one in Kobe demands the government and Tepco compensate 54 people who were forced to flee their home after the meltdown for a total of 445 million yen (4.3 million U.S. dollars).

Bottom line, it is time to get the nuclear industry to tell the truth. It is time for the nuclear industry to be held accountable for all of the suicides, deaths and injuries that it is causing and has caused, and will cause in the future. Why should someone who is lying to the public be entitled to have immunity from lawsuits? Does this make sense?

TEPCO Ordered To Pay $400,000+ In Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Suicide Lawsuit

Fukushima court rules against nuclear operator in suicide lawsuit.
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/08…

This man’s wife dowsed herself in kerosene and set herself on fire after they lost everything, due to the consequences of radiation contamination due to the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster. 
There are hundreds, and possibly thousands of people who committed suicide after the Fukushima mega disaster. Up to 300,000 radiation refugees were forced out of their homes after the 3/11 mega nuclear disaster in Japan, and many of them are still living in ‘temporary’ housing in 2014, three or more years after the disaster.

AJW ASAHI EDITORIAL – HOW TO REDUCE STRESS OF 300,000 FUKUSHIMA RADIATION REFUGEES AND SURVIVORS

Society must find ways to reduce stress of Fukushima survivors
Since the nuclear accident brought drastic changes to the environment and the lives of the affected people, it is difficult to deny the causal relationship between the accident and Watanabe’s suicide. It was a reasonable verdict. … The court verdict reminds us anew of the unending nature of the suffering that the triple meltdown has brought. So far, any connection between the accident and the suicides has been kept vague. There were cases where TEPCO flatly denied causality in negotiations for compensation, or offered to pay only paltry sums that were nowhere near what the bereaved families sought. In Watanabe’s lawsuit, TEPCO effectively hinted at the weakness of her character as the cause of her suicide. The utility ought to be thoroughly ashamed of itself for making such an allegation.
Whether she was strong or weak is irrelevant. There is no excuse for causing Watanabe so much stress as to drive her to suicide …
http://ajw.asahi.com/article/views/editorial/AJ201408270026

People might want to ask themselves; does an average person have a ‘right’ to live in peace and freedom, free from the stress caused by a nuclear accident or disaster? Do people have a right to ask and get compensation for the stress, health harm, and damages such as loss of property, soil, forests, business, etc, caused by nuclear accidents and disasters? TEPCO claims that nothing bad happened at Fukushima, but is that the truth, or is it just another nuclear industry PR move?

Maybe more individuals will step forward and file lawsuits after enduring years of stress, financial burdens, and losses of property, family members and more. AGRP predicts that as more people become aware of the many lies, deceptions and cover ups around Fukushima, that many more lawsuits will be filed.

SACRIFICIAL NUCLEAR REFUGEES POEM 

or-well September 4, 2014

Nuke refugees – what an annoyance –
they run from their jobs
and stop paying their mortgage!
They run away, want financial assistance
and when told to go back
they offer resistance!
They want shelter and blankets and even hot meals
but they can’t afford shopping for the latest deals
so they aren’t even helping to grease profit’s wheels!
They just bug everybody, making constant appeals
for attention and health care for their sick kids
like it’s our fault they’re ill when it’s really stress
induced by the parents who think they know best,
ignoring Nuke Science and all those good rads
– it’s hormesis! –
and that can be proved by our Health Physicists
who know radiophobia is what creates cysts
so we’re ending compensation and then we’ll insist
they all go back home and be consumerists.”

SUMMARY

The nuclear industry keeps on saying that radiation does not cause diseases or death, and that no one died and no one will die from Fukushima radiation. The nuclear industry does admit and say that excessive stress and worry is what is causing all of the diseases and deaths from Fukushima. Now there is a clear precedent that stress and worry, which the nuclear industry admits is caused by nuclear accidents, causes deaths by suicide. 
Maybe this crack in the door can be opened a little bit more by going to diseases and deaths caused by stress and fear, in relationship to nuclear accidents. Lawsuits may be one of the things that will shut down the nuclear industry, as it threatens the very bright future of the human race.

Communist China Has Public Emergency Nuclear Accident Or Bomb Shelters For It’s Citizens, But The USA Has NONE – Why Not?

“There’s a great apathy and a false idea that we’re out of all danger of a nuclear attack, and that’s not so,” he counsels. “What we have at play in the world is a lot of foreign powers, once part of the Soviet Union, and a lot have nuclear arsenals. And the danger is [nuclear weapons] proliferating to third world countries and enemies of the U.S.”
http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/which-way-to-the-nearest-fallout-shelter/Content?oid=884262

AMERICAN ARE NOT READY, EDUCATED, INFORMED OR PREPARED 

Via Shane ConnorColumbia University’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness report determined that “the U.S. remains unprepared to cope with the possibility of an attack on a major city by terrorists capable of acquiring and detonating an improvised nuclear device”. The study, “Regional Health and Public Health Preparedness for Nuclear Terrorism: Optimizing Survival in a Low Probability/High Consequence Disaster,” says in part; 
“In the United States, virtually no public education has taken place about what an individual should do in the event of a nuclear detonation, although there is urgent and critical need for such education, especially for those living in potential target areas… A public education campaign that addressed these issues could save lives and reduce injury in the gray zone by empowering the public to initiate life-saving actions without the need for official advice, which may never arrive. Immediate protective actions in the first moments after a detonation are critical. Considering that it might be impossible to get emergency messages to the public after a detonation, it is sensible to equip the public now with basic information on how to best protect themselves and their family should they ever confront this type of disaster.”

COMMUNIST CHINA IS READY, IN COMPARISON TO THE USA

In case of any kind of terrorist nuclear attack, regional nuclear war, or nuclear accident, Communist China has a very good plan to shelter and/or evacuate a large majority of their citizens, even in their major cities, such as Bejing. Millions of people in Bejing can move underground in case of a asteroid strike, nuclear attack, natural disaster such as earthquake, or even a nuclear accident. They have even made elaborate and very well thought out plans to move large numbers of people underground from one radiation contaminated area to another area that is not radiation contaminated in case of nuclear accident or nuclear war.
Why can’t Japan, the USA or many other countries do that? Oh, right, the US dismantled all of the nuclear bomb shelters, even in large cities, so civilians are left to figure it out for themselves. But that same thing does not apply to US and Japanese government and military officials, of course, because US military and government leaders all have deluxe nuclear bomb shelters to go to with years worth of supplies for them, their families and close friends. Why do they have shelters and no one else does?

Via Rich Fleetwood “An excellent article from 2006, from the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Volume 11, Number 3, authored by Dr. Jane Orient…. “The apparent strategy of the U.S. federal government, in the event of the use of nuclear weapons on American soil, is to provide for continuity of government” while civilians largely fend for themselves. Early in the nuclear age, the federal government funded extensive research on nuclear weapons effects and protective measures, but a national civil defense does not exist, partly owing to opposition from some physician groups. Expedient methods could still save millions of lives at minimal cost.”
Japan can’t be bothered about planning for radiation disasters either, just like the US, because unsafe radiation is just a harmful rumor. Secrecy laws prevent anyone from even talking about this subject, or they risk being arrested if they try. In the US, the media has a sacred cow rule about not discussing anything nuclear and negative in the same breath.

By comparison, explore the example offered by China, and their nuclear bomb shelter system. (click on link for picture)

PRESIDENT KENNEDY PROMISED EVERY US CITIZEN A PUBLIC BOMB SHELTER

According to History.com; “President John F. Kennedy, speaking on civil defense, advises American families to build bomb shelters to protect them from atomic fallout in the event of a nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union. Kennedy also assured the public that the U.S. civil defense program would soon begin providing such protection for every American.” President Kennedy made good on his promise. But then, they all disappeared. Who got rid of them all? 
The need for nuclear bomb and/or natural disaster public shelters for all US citizens has not changed, despite the end of the ‘Cold War’. (see first strike, terrorists and global nuclear war close calls section below). So why were all existing nuclear bomb shelters dismantled?

OFFICIAL US GOVERNMENT POLICY FOR NUCLEAR TERRORISM, ACCIDENTS OR NUCLEAR WAR IS  –  SHELTER ‘IN PLACE’

How many nuclear bomb shelters are there in the us? For all practical intents and purposes, there are ZERO nuclear bomb shelters, and supplies, well forget about that as well. The city of Chicago is making some efforts to maintain at least a few of their shelters, but there is no central, federal listing of all nuclear bomb shelters in the USA. http://www.answers.com/mt/bomb-shelter

Now comes the question: What will you do in case of a natural disaster, or a nuclear disaster? The official US government guidance is to shelter in place. You go to the nearest and most protective building and stay there for 24 hours unless told to evacuate sooner. Do you know where to go, or what to do?

FEMA OFFERS NO INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF NUCLEAR TERROR ATTACK, OR NUCLEAR ACCIDENT,  FOR EXAMPLE

Even FEMA has discontinued all references to nuclear war, nuclear bombs, or nuclear terrorist attacks and what do in regards to them since around 2006. Why delete useful information, especially since the risk of a dirty bomb attack is one of the highest threats existing right now? 

How does a nuclear emergency policy of no information, no warnings, no sirens, and no shelters work in practice? Here are a couple of articles that may give a small taste of what it might end up looking and feeling like…. First, from Gaza..

Israel Under Fire – The Fellowship Responds!
“Sheltering in place” is a fancy term for; there no plan.. You figure it out. Good luck with that. People go into a panic mode from just small rockets and ‘regular’ bombs. What would happen if one or more nuclear bombs were on the way, and people found out? What if a dangerously radioactive plume from something upwind like Fukushima came over your city, and you knew about it? If there are no shelters to go to, it would just cause panic among the population, right?

WHY WERE EPA RADIATION MONITORS NOT WORKING AS HIGHEST RADIATION LEVELS CAME OVER US FROM FUKUSHIMA?

Maybe the following very sad statistic is why the EPA ‘turned off’ radiation detectors and did not warn anyone as the Fukushima radiation plume went over the US, and caused at least 14,000 casualties, just in the first few months. Of course, they claimed that these detectors suddenly ‘quit working’. Really? They had mobile units that could have been deployed to substitute for the ‘non working’ radiation detectors, but they did not deploy even one of those. Why not?

An example of their radiation detector network is provided via the picture below. This picture shows just one average day, just recently, in 2014. 
EPA Alert levels are 100 CPM, but no one is alerted. 
EPA Evacuation levels are 300 CPM, but even when those levels are exceeded, no one is warned, and no one is evacuated. 
What is the EPA actually doing, if they don’t measure or pass on dangerous radiation levels to the public? 
What is FEMA doing? The answer is; nothing.. Do you still believe your government is protecting you?

ONE EXAMPLE OF CHINA’S UNDERGROUND CITIES

Wikipedia; “The Underground City (Chinese: 地下城; pinyin: Dìxià Chéng), also known as Dixia Cheng, is a bomb shelter comprising a network of tunnels located beneath Beijing, China, which has since been transformed into a tourist attraction. It has been called the Underground Great Wall because it was built for the purpose of military defense
The complex was constructed during the 1970s in anticipation of a nuclear war with the Soviet Union,[1][2] and was officially reopened in 2000.[3]Visitors were allowed to tour portions of the complex,[3]which has been described as “dark, damp, and genuinely eerie”.[4] Dixia Cheng has been closed for renovation since at least February 2008.[1
The tunnels comprising Dixia Cheng run beneath Beijing’s city center, covering an area of 85 square kilometres (33 sq mi) 8 to 18 metres (26–59 ft) under the surface.[1][2] At one time there were about 90 entrances to the complex, all of which were hidden in shops along the main streets of Qianmen.[5] Known entrances include 62 West Damochang Street in Qianmen, Beijing Qianmen Carpet Factory at 44 Xingfu Dajie in Chongwen District, and 18 Dazhalan Jie in Qianmen.[1]

History

At the height of Soviet-Chinese tensions in 1969, Chinese chairman Mao Zedong ordered the construction of Dixia Cheng during the border conflict over Zhenbao Island in the Heilongjiang River. It was one of the bomb shelters constructed in case of a nuclear attack.[2] The Underground City was designed to withstand either a nuclear orconventional attack.[1] The complex would enable Beijing’s population to hide from air raids, and could allow China’s leaders to flee safely to military bases in the hills.[6] The government claimed that the tunnels could accommodate all of Beijing’s six million inhabitants upon its completion.[4]
The complex was equipped with facilities such as restaurants, clinics, schools, theaters, factories, a roller skating rink, a grain and oil warehouse, and a mushroom cultivation farm, for growing foods that require little light. There were also more than 70 sites inside the tunnels at which water wells could be dug.[2] Elaborate ventilation systems were installed, with shafts that could close to protect against water and chemicals,[7] and gas and waterproof hatcheswere constructed to protect people in the tunnels from chemical attack and radioactive fallout.[2] The complex also had thick concrete doors, which help protect the tunnels from intruders or a flood.[7]
There is no authoritative information on the extent of the complex’s tunnels,[2] but one tourist explained that they link Beijing’s central railway station with Tiananmen square, the Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City and the Western Hills,[6] while the China Internet Information Center asserts that “they supposedly link all areas of central Beijing, from Xidan and Xuanwumen to Qianmen and [the] Chongwen district”, in addition to the Western Hills.[2] It is also rumoured that every residence once had a secret trapdoor nearby leading to the tunnels.[2] In the event of a nuclear attack, the plan was to move half of Beijing’s population underground and the other half to theWestern Hills.[1]
How many other cities in China are ready and prepared for a nuclear attack or a major nuclear accident? 
Wikipedia; “With the increase of tensions between the PRC and the USSR in the late 1960s, the Chinese leaders deemed it prudent to construct a number of underground facilities to protect the country’s population, military, as well as its command and control bodies, in case of a nuclear conflict. The best known of these facilities is Beijing‘s Underground City. (plural, meaning there are potentially MANY MORE of these shelters, under other Chinese cities.)
On January 31, 1969, a decision was made to construct an underground command headquarters for the country’s military; the codename “131” for the project stems from this date (01-31, in the usual way of ordering dates). The PLA Chief of Staff, General Huang Yongsheng (黄永胜) himself was in charge of the construction.[1]
Bejing hardens subways for nuclear and chemical gas attacks
China built a hardened submarine base, capable of withstanding a nuclear bomb attack and holding 20 nuclear submarines, which can then launch a counter attack.
“Facilities.. used for storing and hiding missiles and nuclear warheads, and for command bunkers, hardened against nuclear attacks. China has been tunneling and hiding its nuclear forces since the early 1950s but the first public disclosure of the effort came in 2010 during the anniversary of the Second Artillery Corps. Until then, both Beijing and the Pentagon kept most details of Chinese underground nuclear facilities and arms secret.”
Bottom line, China offers a real world example that worst case planning and preparations for mega nuclear accidents such as Fukushima, dirty bomb attacks or for limited nuclear war are both plausible and can be accomplished, if the goal is set and a plan is made.
Certainly, the US government and the military branches have built huge underground nuclear bomb shelters, but only for themselves. Sorry, there is NO room in these shelters for all of those hundreds of millions of people that they are supposed to serve, protect and, God forbid, save from the worst effects of a radioactive accident or attack. 

US MILITARY LEADERS HAVE NUCLEAR BOMB SHELTERS AND YEARS OF SUPPLIES, BUT NOT AVERAGE US CITIZENS; WHY NOT?

The Raven Rock Mountain Complex(RRMC) is a military installation with an underground nuclear bunker near Blue Ridge Summit, Pennsylvania, at Raven Rock Mountain that serves as an “underground Pentagon”.[3] The bunker has emergency operations centers for the ArmyNavy, and Air Force. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raven_Rock_Mountain_Complex

US POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE SHELTERS AND SUPPLIES, BUT NOT ANY US CITIZENS; WHY NOT?

There are many underground US government and military facilities, but none for civilians, according to Wikipedia: 
Mount WeatherFederal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) (Used temporarily for Members of Congress in Sept. 2001)
National Audio-Visual Conservation Center (Mount Pony) → Department of Treasury/Federal Reserve (sold off in 1997 to the National Audiovisual Conservation Center)

NO ONE IS PLANNING OR PREPARING FOR NUCLEAR RADIATION EMERGENCIES

The problem with NOT planning for sheltering all of the lowly and average people for nuclear emergencies is that the cities are then caught unprepared and exposed to the worst peaks of radiation that can easily be avoided by sheltering in underground shelters. Fukushima radiation hitting an unprepared Tokyo is a good example of the dangers posed with not planning or preparing for radiation worst case scenarios.

The only reason that the US and the Soviets reduced the stockpiles of nuclear weapons was due to the heroic efforts of medical doctors, led by Dr. Helen Caldicott, who noticed the epidemic rise in cancers, birth defects, genetic diseases and other diseases, plus a few notable politicians who took a brave stand.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/12/from-infinity-room-plutonium-bombs.html

The problem with the lack of focus on radiation information, education and preparation planning is that NO ONE knows anything about radiation, or the dangers posed by it. Myths, lies and misinformation is rampant because the only people talking and being interviewed on mass media TV are the pro nuclear experts, who keep repeating false information that all radiation is like bananas, and you can eat plutonium safely, etc. 

PROBABILITY OF NUCLEAR WAS IS RISING, 20+ CLOSE CALLS SO FAR

Despite the end of the Cold War, the probability of a global nuclear war is rising, not falling. The only way to prevent the use of these nuclear weapons is to abolish and destroy them all. On the way towards that goal, everyone should be informed about the dangers of low dose radiation, and what to do in case of nuclear emergencies. Public shelters should be available for everyone, in all cities.

What Is The Statistical Probability Of A Major Nuclear Accident Like Fukushima Happening In The USA? via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/09/what-is-statistical-probability-of.html

The only option left with NOT planning and preparing is evacuating some small part of the population, because realistically, that is all that can be done. After Fukushima, the lucky informed few left Tokyo on jets, while everyone else was left to hunker down and just suck those peak radiation plumes down, and take it. Basically, anyone who could afford to leave Japan, and was smart enough to figure out what was really happening, did so.

Tokyo; Anyone Who Could Afford To, Left After Fukushima Meltdown; via A Green Road
Bottom line the only realistic solution is to dismantle all nuclear weapons and get rid of nuclear power plants. Since that is not happening currently, wouldn’t you agree that minimizing the risk and increasing the number of people who survive would be a good idea, via public emergency natural disaster and nuclear bomb shelters?

FIRST STRIKE NUCLEAR WEAPONS POLICY SHOULD BE MADE ILLEGAL GLOBALLY, BUT IT IS CURRENTLY US POLICY

The US has an official military policy that allows it to use nuclear weapons FIRST, rather than in response to an attack, which is what US policy used to be. The US used to have a purely defensive posture, which means it would never attack first, but it would respond to any attacks made on it, such as Pearl Harbor, for example. For more information around the offensive first strike policy in place now, click on links..

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/05/the-samson-principle-holding-world.html

Bottom line, this first strike policy increases the risks of nuclear war, and also increases the odds that more people will be exposed to radiation at some point, from open air use of nuclear weapons. If the US does strike some other nation ‘first’, odds are great that someone will respond in kind, with one or more nuclear missiles hitting the US.

THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD TO, LEAVE RADIATION CONTAMINATED AREAS, EVERYONE ELSE IS LEFT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES

Basically, many foreign countries told their citizens to leave Japan after 3/11, and the upper class elite also left Japan, because they could afford to. This happens after every nuclear contamination accident or disaster, so it is nothing new. The people left behind in highly radiation contaminated areas are the people who cannot afford to move, the poor and mostly blue collar workers. It is very hard to find rich people living in ANY highly radiation contaminated areas, anywhere in the world.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/tokyo-is-it-safe-to-visit-or-live-in.html
The downside of this non planning for radiation disasters, is that it then requires covering up the radiation disaster and hiding it completely from the gullible masses of people who will believe whatever is on mass media global corporate controlled TV, radio and newspapers.

The justification used in covering up a radiation disaster is to ‘not cause a panic’, especially since people can’t go anywhere, since there are no shelters for them. But then to make that ‘no panic thing’ happen, it also means not handing out KI tablets as well, and not providing any helpful information about how to avoid radiation dangers, because if one does that, it may cause a panic as well. So what ends up happening after EVERY single nuclear disaster, is that a huge cover up happens, starting almost immediately.

NUCLEAR INDUSTRY DOES NOT CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO CIVILIANS, MEDICAL INDUSTRY PROFITS FROM DISEASES AND CANCERS CAUSED BY NUCLEAR RADIATION 

Odds are that no one will ever hear about the REAL discussions that went on at high levels behind closed doors, because that would mean a huge legal and financial liability, for anyone ‘left behind’ or left out of the limited evacuation that did happen immediately for the families of nuclear plant workers, plus the smart connected folks and the very financially well off.

Only the Japanese US embassy handed out KI tablets to civilians, but only to US citizens. And only the Fukushima hospital staff took KI tablets as part of a nuclear disaster response plan. Everyone else, well, they were told NOT to take anything, as there was nothing to worry about.

Yes, it is difficult to imagine how one would plan and then what process would be used to choose to evacuate if there are no shelters to go to. The lucky chosen few that would be evacuated would have to be a tiny portion of the population of a major city, correct? Imagine this; you are in charge of disaster response for a city with 40 million people. How do you evacuate them in 48 hours?

In case of a nuclear disaster, there might only be a couple of hours before a radiation plume hits. Who will be the lucky few that get a seat on a jet and be flown out? Who will be able to find a very rare radiation shelter? How many would get inside of these shelters to ride out the peak radiation plumes? Only a few, very smart, prepared people, and a few financially well off and well connected people, would end up doing the right thing, correct?

In case of a nuclear disaster, everyone other than the lucky privileged and elite few in government, military and the nuclear industry are told that nothing bad is happening, shelter in place and they are told to NOT take KI tablets. And that is EXACTLY what happened after Fukushima, despite it being much worse than Chernobyl.

WHAT IS YOUR PLAN IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR ACCIDENT LIKE FUKUSHIMA, OR A TERRORIST NUCLEAR ATTACK?

Do you know where you would shelter or evacuate to in case of a nuclear disaster? What is YOUR plan? Certainly the military and political leaders have their plan, and they spent YOUR money to prepare for themselves and their families. How about you? Are you included on the special 1% ‘list’?

This article is difficult to write. The subject matter is so very hard to even think about, much less imagine happening. But a major nuclear mega disaster did happen in Tokyo Japan, right after 3/11. A tiny but lucky portion of that city was evacuated.

Tokyo; Anyone Who Could Afford To, Left After Fukushima Meltdown; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/03/tokyo-anyone-who-could-afford-to-left.html

This mini evacuation was done in secret, which is about the only way it could be done, without causing a major panic, wouldn’t you agree? The bottom line is that the way it happened in Tokyo is about the only way an evacuation can happen in a major city, if there is no plan to shelter people underground, wouldn’t you agree? This leads to the question; who will survive a regional or global nuclear war? Do you know the answer? Do you care?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/06/inside-doomsday-plane-who-will-survive.html

WHAT IS YOUR CITY, AND/OR YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS GROUP DOING TO PREPARE FOR NUCLEAR ACCIDENT OR NUCLEAR WAR?

Now let’s come back to the present moment. Tokyo city officials experienced a major radiation disaster. Tokyo was caught unprepared and flatfooted. If a major Fukushima type radiation disaster happened RIGHT NOW, and then a major radiation plume was headed towards YOU and over your city where you live now, you would be shocked, right? So what is the plan for your family, and/or YOUR city, in case this happens?

What preparations are being made? Who has the radiation detectors to monitor the plume or fallout from each shelter? Who knows about decontamination? Where is the fresh water, blanket, medications, bandages and food going to be stored? Who knows about and can train the emergency responders about the dangers of fallout, radioactive gas, hot particles, and more? Who is going to hand out KI tablets and other helpful modalities and information? 

All US cities were exposed to Japanese fallout from Fukushima. The peak radiation plumes could have been avoided by measuring them as they came over the Pacific ocean, and then getting people into underground nuclear bomb shelters to avoid the worst of the peaks. But nothing was done, because there was no place to go to, because all of the public access nuclear bomb shelters have been dismantled. In the US, there is no plan, no place to go, nothing known, and no KI tablets will be handed out, to anyone.

COVER UPS ARE THE NORM, BECAUSE THERE ARE NO PLANS OR SHELTERS TO DEAL WITH RADIATION ACCIDENTS OR A LIMITED REGIONAL NUCLEAR WAR

The coverup of the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster had to happen, or heads would roll in the government and the nuclear industry, if the public ever found out how bad it really got in the days and weeks after 3/11.

What are the lessons that should have been learned from Fukushima? What kind of radiation disaster plan is your local, regional, national and/or international government drawing up to protect your community, the PUBLIC, your neighbors, friends and family from another radiation accident, terror attack or regional nuclear war?

The current plan for the public (no plan) is to ‘shelter in place’, which means everyone stays in their house and sucks up the radiation, while the government and military go to their nuclear bomb shelters that they have built for themselves, with filtered air, clean water and years of supplies.. Sorry, there is no room for you. Figure it out. Too bad for you and your loved ones. 

Is everyone just going to completely ignore this real world risk and stay in apathy or denial? Will the few that do respond label anyone who brings this subject up; a fear monger and conspiracy theorist?

Time will tell. Spread this message, if you care about the future and protecting children from harm. Share it on Facebook, twitter, other social media. Print it out and mail it to your local officials. Talk about it at the coffee shop.

A Border Free World Exists; Consciousness, Internet, Water, Air, Space; How About Getting Rid Of All Borders? One Global Village, One Heart, One Consciousness, One Future

This article focuses on the history of borders, current state of global borders, and ways to move the world to a place where the need for borders is eliminated and becomes obsolete. The article is designed to lead the reader through a paradigm shifting process leading to a higher state of awareness or consciousness. 

WALLS ALL AROUND THE WORLD, WALLS AROUND THE MINDS OF PEOPLE

A Requiem for a Borderless World – A short movie above explores the walls being built between countries, for a variety of reasons, and gives a ‘feeling’ that goes with it. Are walls sustainable? Whether a wall keeps people out, or keeps people in, or imprisons them, are walls a sustainable solution for seven future generations?

MOST PEOPLE ARE USED TO BEING IN BOXES THEIR WHOLE LIVES, NEVER EXPERIENCE REAL AND TRUE FREEDOM

Most people are comfortable living inside of square boxes, which are walls with roofs on them, both inside and outside. Then there are more walls, which are called ‘fences’, which keep people and/or animals in or out. Those walls and fences exist in the mind and heart as well as out in the physical world.

Then there are more walls, barriers or fences to enclose cities, countries, nations or states. Most civilized people are used to these boxes and walls, just a like a caged bird that was born in a cage is so used to the cage that it will not even consider leaving, even if the door is opened.

Schools are designed in part to train children to be obedient and live inside of a systems of big boxes with walls around them, obeying orders from above. The ‘orders’ come from another box that most people watch for hours a day. The boxes imprison people without them even realizing it.

If a person travels to a state like Alaska and lives there for awhile, they may start to realize just how many boxes, walls and fences there really are, by comparison with Alaska or Africa for example, where there are few or no fences or walls, especially once one gets out of the few small towns or cities in there. Much like wild animals roaming free in the plains of Africa, it is possible for people to live in freedom, instead of being trapped in a corporate designed zoo that keeps people caged in little boxes, fences, walls and borders. 

What if there is another, better, happier, freedom filled way to live, without causing harm to 7 future generations or this generation? What if at least one or more of those walls, borders, fences and boxes could be made obsolete and be torn down in a win win manner? Could you imagine this, even if logic does not go there? Maybe the mind believes it is not possible.

Remember that imagination is much more powerful than logic, so keep reading, and keep an open mind, unless you like doing things like jumping out of airplanes without a parachute. Remember, the Berlin wall was torn down, and the formation of the EU tore down many other walls, so there is living proof that this can be done.

BORDERS ARE ARTIFICIAL, NOT NATURAL; EU IS EXAMPLE OF HOW BORDERS CAN BE ABOLISHED

Borders, passports and visas are a human invention, designed to control and ‘manage’ large numbers of people for political, financial, social, and nationalistic, purposes. As the recent elimination of many countries borders has proved in the EU, there is a way to get rid of borders and walls that separate people without causing harm.

If the EU can eliminate borders between many countries and pull it off successfully, why can’t the whole world do this? If the wall between the Soviet Union and Berlin can be torn down, how about all of the other walls around the world? AGRP is not looking at a few people at the top controlling this global empire, but rather a bottoms up movement that empowers people from the bottom up, rather than the opposite. Fear is the biggest obstacle to making anything that involves change happen. Right now, fear is probably coming up. Allow it, feel it, but move through it and keep going. Don’t let fear stop you from imagining a new and better reality. 

CORPORATIONS HAVE NO BORDERS, THEY ARE GLOBAL CITIZENS

Think about corporations. They are global ‘citizens’ and claim the right to be ‘people’ via the Citizens United supreme court decision. There are no borders for corporations. Corporations move to any country at will and stay as long as they want. They don’t even need passports, yet they claim to be ‘people’ with peoples rights. If a country starts telling a corporation what to do, they just pick up and move to another country, while firing or laying off everyone who may have worked for that corporation for 20 years.

Why are corporations such ‘special’ people? Why can’t everyone have the same ‘rights’ as a corporation does, to move anywhere, live anywhere, and hide money anywhere that average people want to, plus have bank accounts all over the world and multiple bases of operation in different countries? Why are individuals who try to do this criminals who are put in jail, yet corporations do this as a normal part of their routine daily operations?

EU IS AN EXAMPLE, BUT VISION AND IMAGINATION IS MORE POWERFUL THAN LOGIC

Jean-Michel Cousteau spoke passionately about a borderless world, first inspired by the United States and now applied to Europe. We can now drive or ride a bicycle through 27 countries in Europe without anybody stopping you or checking you at the border! And this is the direction the whole world is now going! When you look at the revolution right now in the Arabic countries, that is where they are going too. We are one species; one people. Borders are arbitrary inventions.”

I could see that all his ocean travel had instilled a most profound sense of global unity in Jean-Michel long, long before most of us were thinking about One Earth or One People. All of us in the room took a very deep breath. His passion was like a much needed thunder storm. His vision was irrefutable.”

WATER IS LIFE; OCEANS, RAIN AND RIVERS HAVE NO BORDERS OR PASSPORTS

TEDxPotomac – Alexandra Cousteau – We Are ALL Connected by Water. Water has no borders. Water respects no walls, visas and does not ask or get passports. Water makes us all ONE. It follows no immigration laws. Yet people use water as if it followed all of the immigration and border laws. Most people are aware only of turning the tap on, seeing water come out and then watch as it disappears down the drain. 
Water is the model for how humans should be thinking and living. We are part of Nature. We are mostly water. We drink, breathe and eat water which goes all around the world. If we can save the quality of water locally, above ground, in the air, and under the ground, and then extend that out to the oceans, we have a chance. Further than that, if we treat water as something sacred and mysterious, that increases the odds of humanity making it even more. Dr. Emoto provides some information in this direction.

WHAT IS SACRED TO YOU? ANYTHING? ANYONE?

What is sacred in your life? Anything? Anyone? If nothing is sacred, then everyone and everything has a price, and can be sold for short term profits, correct? And if water, air, soil, people, plants, seeds, fish, and everything is private property and can be sold, there is nothing sacred, nothing commons owned, so the world can be destroyed for $1 profit. The profit motive is the opposite of sacredness. Which temple do you worship in? The temple of profit and nothing is sacred, somewhere in between or the opposite? Maybe it is time for humanity to realize that if all water, air, life and soil is sold, then nothing is left to live on, and 7 future generations have no birthright. 
Dr. Emoto On Vibrations, Water, Energy, Consciousness And Healing; via A Green Road
If everything is sold, and we do not respect water, much less Nature, if we keep polluting the oceans, the rivers and other water, if we keep on dumping nuclear waste, garbage, chemicals and other pollutants into the water, that is what will come back to us through the food chain, and humanity will not make it, plus there is nothing left for 7 future generations. 
In the same way, if humanity can learn to live in a world without borders, in the way that the oceans, the rivers and other waters do in a sustainable, sacred and mysterious way, then the global human village has a chance. Keep asking the question; what works for 7 future generations?

AIR HAS NO BORDERS, NO PASSPORTS – RADIATION, SMOG AND CANCER CAUSING POLLUTION GOES ALL AROUND THE WORLD

As Fox news points out, borders mean nothing to air, smog and pollution. It goes all around the world, and the diseases and cancers plus deaths caused by these things are also no respecter of borders. Smog and radiation go all around the world. If humanity can respect the air that is given freely by Nature, and pass it on in as pure a state as it was originally given before the industrial age, humanity has a chance. What will work for 7 future generations?

MAN MADE RADIATION RESPECTS ON BORDERS OR BODIES

Obviously, pouring more and more toxic, poisonous chemicals and radiation into the air and hoping that it dilutes, is not working. 

Background Radiation Has Increased 600 Percent – 1 mSv In 1950 To over 6 mSv In 2014; Where Is This Coming From?
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/03/background-radiation-has-increased-600.html

The 80 or so tons of 1,200 or so man made radioactive elements from the 2,400 open air nuclear tests plus hundreds of nuclear disasters and accidents can still be measured all around the world in the soil, air, and oceans.

These poisonous heavy metal and radioactive man made artificial elements are constantly and forever being concentrated as they travel up the food chain to people, who are at the top of the food pyramid. These radioactive elements will continue to do this for millions of years, until all of these 1,900 plus man made radioactive elements totally decay away.

INFINITE OUTER SPACE HAS NO BORDERS, WALLS OR LIMITS

People who do not believe in God, do believe in the existence of the physical universe. But as strange as it may seem, most people’s beliefs about the solar system and how it moves through the universe may be much like the beliefs that people in the middle ages held about the universe they lived in.

In the Middle Ages, the dominant belief system was that the Earth was flat, and that the sun revolved around a stationary Earth. Even our present belief system about a 2 dimensional universe is obsolete and must evolve, to the new awareness that is now being ‘discovered’. Present day thinking and belief systems are boxes that trap people in an obsolete and old fashioned way of thinking. 

Mystery – The Earth Does Not Orbit The Sun In 2 Dimensions – It Travels Through Border Free Space At Speed Of 3.9 Million Miles/Yr.

EVERYONE IS A GALACTIC CITIZEN; THE GALAXY HAS NO ‘BORDERS’

What is a fact is that spaceship Earth moves through space. Space has no limits, no borders and no boundaries. We are all galactic citizens whether we realize that or not. Our citizen-ship is currently here on planet Earth. We ride with our universal consciousness being accompanied by all life on the planet, the planets in our solar system, the sun and the stars. In this infinite galaxy, there is no border where we need a passport, citizenship papers or a visa that limits us to a short visit and stay.

Each person is a citizen and an important part of this infinite mystery, miracle and wonder of Nature that is also called spaceship Earth. Each person has an inheritance in this sacred mystery of what is visible and knowable with free gifts given at birth that are more valuable and sacred than tons of diamonds, rubies and gold.

WOULD YOU SWEEP TOXIC WASTE UNDER A CARPET INSIDE OF YOUR SPACESHIP?

Imagine for a moment that this planet is a spaceship; just a very large one. You are a passenger, and the captain of it, at the same time. Would you allow anyone to dispose of toxic waste inside the area designed for food preparation of your spaceship? Would you allow the dumping of radioactive waste in your bed ‘room’ on this spaceship? No? Then why do we allow it on this spaceship we call planet Earth?

After all, can a person eat gold, or drink diamonds, or breathe rubies? No.. the most important and sacred gifts given to each citizen of this galactic infinity is earth, sun, sky, water and air, plus all of the living beings that support this life on spaceship Earth.

Without clean drinkable pure water, clean fertile ground, and breathable pure air, we have souled out our birthright and the birthright of 7 future generations of our children for worthless scraps of paper that mean nothing and are really worth nothing when looked at from the perspective of spaceship Earth, soul, sacredness and/or what works for 7 future generations.

CIVILIZATION IS FIGHTING A WAR AGAINST NATURE, BUT IT IS A LOSE LOSE WAR

We have the potential of evolving into a REAL Galactic citizenship. At some point in the future, we can contact other life in other galaxies. The only way we will get from here to there is to live in harmony with the laws of Nature and the cosmos. We cannot survive, much less thrive by fighting the very laws that were designed to help us grow, survive and evolve. Most of what modern civilization is engaged in is fighting the laws of Nature. This war against Nature cannot be won. Humanity will lose, guaranteed.

Our baby step into becoming infant galactic citizens is to get rid of those things that are not in harmony with Nature, and promote those things that are in harmony with Nature, while doing no harm to seven future generations. 

By doing this, we not only help ourselves and 7 future generations of our children, but we also will gain admittance to the greater Galactic community, which is waiting for us to grow up and take our rightful place at the table.

AGRP teaches how to live in harmony with Nature, by teaching the Science Of Sustainable Health. If this science is not taught, how are we going to get to the bright and hope filled future we are destined for? If no one knows the science of sustainable health, how can it be implemented or set as a goal? 

CONSCIOUSNESS HAS NO BORDERS OR LIMITS


Deepak Chopra MD On Higher States of Consciousness

As the following article and video describes in great detail, there is no limit, border or boundary to consciousness. At any given moment, a new, sustainable future can be created, by any one given person.

The following article also has a written out prayer, affirmation and visualization that serves to anchor this reality and literally create it from nothing. 

Consciousness Has No Borders; Let’s Create Heaven On Earth – Inspirational Video And Prayer For Global Sustainable Wealth, Health, Relationship, Life
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/11/creating-heaven-on-earth-with.html


Deepak Chopra – The New Collective Consciousness

Greatest movements of the 60’s went through a decay process, where the founders of peace, justice and sustainability are now the heads of financial and other firms that do little or nothing for any of these causes. Back then, the movements were top down hierarchies, which fell apart when strong leaders left.
But the 60’s movements and causes such as environmentalism are coming back, but in a different way, from the bottom up, via a collective and evolved consciousness. The power of this consciousness is in each individual. Each individual, through their personal actions and choices, as agents of change, create the individual positive tipping points which are happening all over the world.

We are entering a new age, where a combination of technology, collective higher consciousness and with a focus on what works for 7 future generations. We get to figure out how to apply this new consciousness, with technology, with innovation, with age old answers from aborigine roots, and love/empathy, imagination, creativity, plus much more. There are no limits to the miracles that can be created in this new consciousness. 

AMERICAN INDIAN CULTURE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF NO BORDERS

There are many models we can follow, and the next article shows how humanity can do it, because living in a sustainable way without borders is nothing new or different. All we have to do is follow the example of people who have lived in a sustainable way all around the world for tens of thousands of years, without borders.

TED TALK; BORDERLESS WORLD

Parag Khanna: he talks about the history of global borders. He explains how borders can realistically be ‘softened’ and eventually eliminated in his talk; ‘A Borderless World’

TED TALK; Mani Shankar Aiyar at TEDxMehrauli, BORDERLESS WORLD



Mani Shankar Aiyar is a former Indian diplomat turned politician. He is currently a nominated member of parliament for Rajya Sabha. He here speaks on; how do we achieve a border less world? He talks about how since time immemorial Indians have always looked at the world as one which is not constrained by political boundaries. He also speaks about the dangers of nationalism and xenophobia.

JESSE VENTURA ON GETTING RID OF BORDERS AND IMMIGRATION ISSUES

Borders are put up by governments. Why do people need papers to go from one place to another? A business owner can hire anyone they want from any country, via the various visa worker programs in the US, which kept on existing even in the worst recession times. 
Theoretically, these visa programs only exist because these companies can’t ‘find’ US workers for these jobs. But in reality, these visa programs are more about corporations doing whatever they want, and getting around the ‘borders’ and ‘immigration’ issues that borders create. Corporations can have their cake and eat the icing too. But if citizens try this on their own without a corporation ‘inviting’ them in, they are ‘illegal’s and thrown in prison, or sent back to where they came from. Why do corporations get such special citizen status with all of these ‘extra’ rights, when ordinary citizens of the US and other countries cannot do this?

CORPORATIONS ARE EXPORTING MILLIONS OF JOBS TO COMMUNIST CHINA; CHINA IS WINNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC WAR WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT

Communist China is very successful in what it is doing, and it is winning the war for jobs, money, power and influence around the world. In part they are winning by eliminating all borders around the world. They do this by importing jobs, corporations and trade secrets to their country, while exporting citizens, products, services and influence, both legally and illegally. If China can do this, why can’t other countries do the same? 
Communist China Winning War Against USA, Without A Shot Being Fired; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/11/communist-china-winning-war-against-usa.html

Corporations use this divide and conquer, profit motivated war on the people. Corporations are going all around the world to find the cheapest labor and the countries without any pollution or labor unions. Corporations love to push more free trade agreements, because that is what allows them to do all of the above, more and more.

FAIR TRADE LAWS ARE DESIGNED TO BENEFIT ONLY CORPORATIONS, NOT PEOPLE

TPP – Trans Pacific Partnership Is Being Rammed Through Congress Right Now – Call your Rep!
As these huge globalist corporations grow in power and influence globally, average people, unions, freedoms and rights either get taken away or suffer, all around the world. Corporations are not trickling benefits down on workers. Rather, they are taking them away, and where they can, they also eliminate or move the jobs too. They don’t care about nations, communities or your family. They are borderless sociopaths, only interested in short term profits.

But corporations power and reach can be broken. Here is an example of one country that stood up the globalist corporations and won. Guess which country is was and who the force was that got the job done? It was Iceland, and their huge percentage of union members that made the difference.

UNIONS HAVE WON BATTLES AGAINST CORPORATIONS AND THE 1%

Unions represent average workers, not huge globalist corporations. This story provides the proof that unions are not evil socialist plots, but are actually one of the best hopes that humanity has of countering the overwhelming power and money influence that corporations have in all directions.

There are other answers as well, but it is important to understand that corporate propaganda about unions being evil is just that, propaganda. Remember there is no ‘pure’ and holy organization. Unions in the grand scheme of things at the present state of consciousness represent workers, while corporations represent the 1% who always want more power, more money and take things away from workers.

SUMMARY

Borders are a reflection of consciousness and thoughts. Most people believe that pollution does not go beyond the border or artificial boundary. Most people believe that borders will stop the negative consequences of radiation, despite this not being true.  Many people believe that rivers and oceans cannot be killed and that humanity can keep on doing what it is doing now, with no changes, despite this not being true. Every action we take has global effects, positive or negative. We are either creating positive or negative tipping points, and we start with the awareness or consciousness of that fact.

Hopefully this article provided some food for thought. Just because something has been done for 200 years, does not mean it has to continue. Everyone in the USA other than American Indians is an ‘illegal’ immigrant, and should be thrown out, if we apply the logic being used against other more recent immigrants.

A fair and sustainable solution for everyone on the North American continent exists and can be found. What would a fair and equitable solution be, for stealing a whole country and extinguishing a whole culture, while committing genocide?  Quite possibly, the solution is in part, eliminating all of the man made artificial borders on the North American continent.
