LOS ALAMOS – WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN DOING, WHILE NO ONE WAS WATCHING OR NOTICING?

or-well December 2, 2014 “Burial At Los Alamos – 
“Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL), the “birthplace” of the atomic bomb, is situated atop Pajarito Plateau, nineteen miles Northwest from Santa Fe. The lab property is divided by several arroyos that flow into the Rio Grande.
During the Manhattan Project and the following Cold War years, more than 17,500,000 cubic feet of radioactive and other toxic wastes were buried directly in the ground and arroyos surrounding the labs in cardboard boxes, plastic containers and steel drums. In 1994 plutonium – one of most deadly substances known to mankind, used in nuclear weapons – was detected in the Rio Grande. Since 2000, other radioactive materials were detected in the drinking water, ground water and deep aquifer water including strontium-90, tritium, polonium, uranium, technicium, among others. The rate of brain and nervous system and thyroid cancers are considerably higher in this region than in other state and national reference populations.”

Nuclear Powered Rocket Programs; Pluto, Peewee, Phoebus, Kiwi Nerva, Prometheus, Thermal Rockets, Nuclear Propulsion

Wikipedia; Project Rover was an American project to develop a nuclear thermal rocket. The program ran at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory from 1955 through 1972 and involved the Atomic Energy Commission, and NASA. The project was managed by the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office.[1]
Nuclear reactors for the Rover program were built at the Lab’s Technical Area 18 (TA-18), also known as Pajarito Site. The reactors were tested at very low power and subsequently shipped to Jackass Flats at the Nevada Test Site. Testing of fuel elements and other materials science was done by N-Division in Los Alamos at TA-46 using various ovens and later the Nuclear Furnace. Parallel fuel rod development took place off-site at Rocky Flats.
Project Rover could be divided into three phases: Kiwi, between 1955 and 1964, Phoebus, taking place between 1964 and 1969, and Pewee, taking place between 1969 and the project’s cancellation along with the cancellation of the NERVA rocket at the end of 1972. Kiwi and Phoebus were large reactors; Pewee 1 and Pewee 2 were much smaller and they conformed to the smaller budget available after 1968. Both Kiwi and Phoebus became part of the NERVA program.[2]

Kiwi

Project Rover; develop a nuclear thermal rocket, The first phase of Project Rover, Kiwi, was named after the large flightless bird. It consisted of a series of non-flyable test nuclear engines, with primary focus on improving the technology of hydrogen-cooled reactors. Between 1959 and 1964, a total of eight reactors were built and tested. After conclusion of these experiments in 1964, further efforts were concentrated towards larger and more powerful Phoebus reactors.[4] Kiwi was considered successful proof that nuclear rockets could be considered not only feasible but highly reliable and advantageous for space travel.

Phoebus

Phoebus was Phase Two of Project Rover. The focus was placed on achieving more power than was possible with Kiwi units and maintaining the maximum power for ever longer duration. The work on Phoebus was started in 1963, with a total of 3 engines being built and tested between 1965 and 1968.
Phoebus A-1 was tested on July 25, 1965, at Jackass Flats. A second test occurred three years later. Both tests were considered highly successful.

Pewee

Pewee became Phase Three of Project Rover. It was small, easy to test, and well-sized for unmanned scientific interplanetary missions or small nuclear “tugs”.

Project NERVA was an acronym for Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application, a joint program of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and NASA managed by the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office (SNPO) at the Nuclear Rocket Development Station in Jackass Flats, Nevada U.S.A.Between 1959 and 1972, the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office oversaw 23 reactor tests, both the program and the office ended at the end of 1972.

RADIOACTIVE HYDROGEN GAS STREAMED INTO AIR WITH NO LIMITS, NO ONE WAS WARNED DOWNWIND

What none of the videos and descriptions above talk about is that a nuclear core melted down on at least one occasion, releasing massive amounts of radiation, just like any other nuclear reactor melting down. No one was warned, and no one was given KI tablets or anything else. 
To perform these tests, an open fission reactor with no radiation safety systems or shielding was put out in the open and hydrogen gas was heated up inside of the reactor and then burned out in the open air. At the point where it entered and then left the reactor, this gas became radioactive due to neutron activation, which all of the accounts above fail to mention somehow. Massive quantities of poisonous, radioactive gas were shot up into the air on numerous occasions, but again, no one was warned or notified downwind. 
They claim no one was injured or died from the melt down of a nuclear reactor. According to them, the release of massive quantities of radioactive hydrogen had no effect on anyone or anything. All of these descriptions make for good pro nuclear propaganda, but none of it is true.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A NUCLEAR POWERED ROCKET FAILS ON LAUNCH PAD, OR IN AIR, OR IN LOW EARTH ORBIT? 

Launching a nuclear reactor into the air is worse than launching a nuclear bomb on top of a rocket. Why? A nuclear bomb contains possibly 10 pounds of uranium. A nuclear reactor can contain up to 100 TONS of uranium and/or plutonium. Plutonium is orders of magnitude worse in terms of killing power and cancer causing potential than uranium. What happens if one or more of these nuclear reactors on a rocket fails on the launchpad? What happens if it fails on the way up or in orbit?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/04/1962-1964-indian-ocean-multiple.html

These satellites containing a couple of pounds of plutonium are bad enough. But imagine TONS of uranium and/or plutonium melting and turning into gas and hot particles in the atmosphere or on the launch pad as a huge fireball and explosion of hydrogen gas consumes everything? Of course, if something goes wrong, the moderators will probably fail as well, meaning that the reactor will melt down in space, in the air or on the ground launchpad, as we already have one example of above. Without any containment, and out in the open air, a melting down reactor is a mega nuclear disaster, worse than Chernobyl and TMI.

Coal Plants Emit More Radiation Than Nuclear Plants Do – Nuclear Propaganda and Lie Exposed And Debunked

EXAMPLE OF THE LIE THAT COAL EMITS MORE RADIATION THAN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

“Coal plants emit more radioactivity than Nuclear power plants.
Via sourceofrealnews Blog

Over the past few decades, however, a series of studies has called these stereotypes into question. Among the surprising conclusions: the waste produced by coal plants is actually more radioactive than that generated by their nuclear counterparts. In fact, the fly ash emitted by a power plant—a by-product from burning coal for electricity—carries into the surrounding environment 100 times more radiation than a nuclear power plant producing the same amount of energy. * [See Editor’s Note at end of page 2] (Link)
This of course ignores a whole bunch of issues. It ignores the fact that during the mining of uranium, radiation is released into the environment as well. Another article that makes the same claim is a little fairer when it gives us the number of the whole process:
For comparison, according to NCRP Reports No. 92 and No. 95, population exposure from operation of 1000-MWe nuclear and coal-fired power plants amounts to 490 person-rem/year for coal plants and 4.8 person-rem/year for nuclear plants. Thus, the population effective dose equivalent from coal plants is 100 times that from nuclear plants. For the complete nuclear fuel cycle, from mining to reactor operation to waste disposal, the radiation dose is cited as 136 person-rem/year; the equivalent dose for coal use, from mining to power plant operation to waste disposal, is not listed in this report and is probably unknown.(link)
There a bit of a difference between 136 rem per year and 4.8 rem per year. But even that pales in comparison to the “Editor’s note” at the end of page 2.
In response to some concerns raised by readers, a change has been made to this story. The sentence marked with an asterisk was changed from “In fact, fly ash—a by-product from burning coal for power—and other coal waste contains up to 100 times more radiation than nuclear waste” to “In fact, the fly ash emitted by a power plant—a by-product from burning coal for electricity—carries into the surrounding environment 100 times more radiation than a nuclear power plant producing the same amount of energy.” Our source for this statistic is Dana Christensen, an associate lab director for energy and engineering at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as well as 1978 paper in Science authored by J.P. McBride and colleagues, also of ORNL.
As a general clarification, ounce for ounce, coal ash released from a power plant delivers more radiation than nuclear waste shielded via water or dry cask storage.
This is where the cat comes out of the bag. They’re comparing coal ash released from a power plant with nuclear waste that is properly being shielded. This is of course comparing apples and oranges. First of all nuclear waste isn’t properly shielded. Nuclear waste gets into the environment all the time.
For example, The Herald reported recently:
A nuclear power station has been sent a final warning letter after radioactive waste leaked into the sea.
Around 2600 litres of low-level waste was discharged from Hunterston B into the Firth of Clyde because of a problem with a valve. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) said the leak did not cause an environmental issue, but it issued the Ayrshire power station with a final warning letter because procedures were not followed.(Link)

DECEPTIVE CLAIM IS BASED ON FALSE ASSUMPTIONS

In other words, the claim that nuclear waste is less radioactive than coal waste assumes that the waste is properly stored behind water which absorbs the radiation, whereas in reality, the nuclear waste often is released into our environment, where it will enter the food chain, our atmosphere, and eventually settle into our bodies. This means that the article is dealing with a hypothetical situation that will never occur in reality. The author is very much aware of this, I am convinced.
However, 95% of people will simply see the headline and perhaps read the first few paragraphs of his article before moving on and will never question it. They will just remember “coal plants are 100 times more radioactive than nuclear power plants”. They won’t question the facts and assumptions made to arrive at this conclusion and make up their minds on the basis of a cheap one-liner.

SPENT FUEL NUCLEAR WASTE IS MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN COAL WASTE PRODUCTS

Second, radioactive nuclear waste is inherently more dangerous than the natural isotopes we get from coal. I have brought this argument up earlier, and it is true for this case as well. For example, we have about three times the plutonium waste than was earlier estimated in the United States alone. (Link)Plutonium is a second event emitter. The waste created by nuclear power plants is chemically toxic as well. The artificial isotopes created by nuclear power plants are not comparable to the isotopes in coal emissions. All of this increases the complexity of comparing different types radioactive material.

COAL PLANTS DON’T BLOW UP OR MELT DOWN, BUT NUCLEAR PLANTS AND ATOMIC BOMBS DO

Then there is the fact that when nuclear power plants blow up, they release far more nuclear waste than coal plants have in all of recorded history. In fact, the Chernobyl accident is estimated to have released 25–50 million curies (1–2 exabecquerels) (IAEA estimations), whereas the collective radioactivity resulting from all coal burning worldwide between 1937 and 2040 is estimated to be 2,700,000 curies or 0.101 EBq).

In other words the Chernobyl accident alone released ten times as much radiation as all coal burning worldwide between 1937 and 2040 did. The disaster currently unfolding in Japan shows us that meltdowns are still possible. However, it must again be mentioned that the artificial isotopes released in the Chernobyl disaster are hard to compare to the natural radioactive isotopes in our environment, because some of them are Second event emitters.

COAL CAUSES DEATHS, BUT FISSION PROCESS CAUSES EVEN MORE, BOTH MUST BE ABOLISHED

Then, there has to be a final point made. Nobody ever said that coal plants are safe either. The argument made here is comparable to the argument that “it is safe to smoke cigarettes, because injecting heroin is 100 times as lethal as smoking a cigarette”. Even coal plants cause deaths and birth defects. China’s main coal producing province has the highest birth defect rate in the entire country for example.(Link) Dirty coal ought to be rejected in the same manner that nuclear power should be.

CHERNOBYL RELEASED 10 TIMES MORE RADIATION THAN ALL COAL PLANTS ON THE PLANET HISTORICALLY

However, the overwhelming evidence points towards coal plants still being nowhere near the danger that is posed by nuclear power plants, because all coal plants on the planet still released less than 10 times the amount of radiation released during the Chernobyl disaster.

USGS STUDIES SHOW COAL PLANT EMISSIONS CAUSE MINOR INCREASE IN RADIATION EXPOSURE FOR RESIDENTS WITHIN 1 KM

The radiation hazard from airborne emissions of coal-fired power plants was evaluated in a series of studies conducted from 1975–1985. These studies concluded that the maximum radiation dose to an individual living within 1 km of a modern power plant is equivalent to a minor, perhaps 1 to 5 percent, increase above the radiation from the natural environment. For the average citizen, the radiation dose from coal burning is considerably less. Components of the radiation environment that impact the U.S. population are illustrated in figure 4. Natural sources account for the majority (82 percent) of radiation. Man-made sources of radiation are dominated by medical X-rays (11 percent). On this plot, the average population dose attributed to coal burning is included under the consumer products category and is much less than 1 percent of the total dose. 
Fly ash is commonly used as an additive to concrete building products, but the radioactivity of typical fly ash is not significantly different from that of more conventional concrete additives or other build-ing materials such as granite or red brick. One extreme calculation that assumed high proportions of fly-ash-rich concrete in a residence suggested a dose enhancement, compared to normal concrete, of 3 percent of the natural environmental radiation.

CARBON FUEL COMPANIES RECEIVE 88 BILLION PER YEAR IN CORPORATE WELFARE ENTITLEMENTS

The Guardian exposes the fact that despite the world’s nations agreeing that carbon emissions must be cut by a huge amount, carbon fuel companies are still receiving 88 Billion per year in subsidies each year. The nuclear industry also receives a huge subsidy, despite it also being global warming. Meanwhile, the fossil fuel industry only receives about 10% of what the nuclear industry receives alone, all by itself. Add in the carbon fuel industry subsidies and the share that renewables receives shrinks even more drastically.

SUMMARY

It is time to create a carbon, chemical and nuclear free future. Have you heard of a solar, wind, water or geothermal plant blowing up and then melting down? Have you heard of any of these needing to have nuclear waste stored for 1 million years? Have you heard of any of these quadrupling in cost, without even the cost of decommissioning? No?  Humanity has been led by wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, and it is about time to undress the wolves, show them the door and let the truth out. 
Isn’t it about time to switch the subsidies from the carbon and nuclear industries to the 100% carbon free renewable energy segment?

There are a number of lies about nuclear energy being promoted by the industry, and I figured I’d make myself useful by taking a look at them.

Lie #1: Nuclear energy poses no threat, because your exposure to radioactivity through the eating of Bananas is higher.

First we start with the simplest. The “Banana equivalent dose”. As explained by Wikipedia:

A banana equivalent dose (BED) is a concept occasionally used by nuclear power proponents to place in scale the dangers of radiation by comparing exposures to the radiation generated by a common banana. Many foods are naturally radioactive, and bananas are particularly so, due to the radioactive potassium-40 they contain. The banana equivalent dose is the radiation exposure received by eating a single banana. By comparing the exposure…

However, this concept is still being taken seriously enough that large audiences gather for TED talks about it, and the idea is still getting government funding. 
Feel free to modify the wikipedia article below, as it downplays and minimizes all of the dangers, hazards, cancers and deaths that would be caused globally.

The Russian model uses a conventional chemical rocket to get into orbit and then fires up the nuclear powered engine. They dismiss any dangers due to rocket failures, which would scatter nuclear bomb materials and potentially explode all of the nuclear fuel aboard the rocket, by saying; ‘measures would be taken to prevent this’. In other words, an accident would NEVER happen. The advocate admits only ONE satellite containing plutonium crashed in Canada, and Russia had to pay a ‘fine’ to Canada for this ‘violation’ and clean up costs.

PRO NUCLEAR APOLOGISTS VISION OF THE FUTURE IS USING THOUSANDS OF NUCLEAR BOMBS ON EACH ROCKET TO LAUNCH THEM, TO EXPLORE SPACE

Wikipedia; “This article is about a nuclear rocket engine propulsion project. 
An artist’s conception of the NASA reference design for the Project Orion spacecraft powered by nuclear propulsion.

PROJECT ORION

Project Orion was a study of a spacecraft intended to be directly propelled by a series of explosions of atomic bombs behind the craft (nuclear pulse propulsion). Early versions of this vehicle were proposed to take off from the ground with significant associated nuclear fallout; later versions were presented for use only in space.
General proposals were first made by Stanislaw Ulam in 1946, and preliminary calculations were made by F. Reines and Ulam in a Los Alamos memorandum dated 1947.[1] The actual project, initiated in 1958, was led by Ted Taylor at General Atomics and physicist Freeman Dyson, who at Taylor’s request took a year away from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton to work on the project.
The Orion concept offered high thrust and high specific impulse, or propellant efficiency, at the same time. The unprecedented extreme power requirements for doing so would be met by nuclear explosions, of such power relative to the vehicle’s mass as to be survived only by using external detonations without attempting to contain them in internal structures. 
As a qualitative comparison, traditional chemical rockets—such as the Saturn V that took the Apollo program to the Moon—produce high thrust with low specific impulse, whereas electric ion engines produce a small amount of thrust very efficiently. Orion would have offered performance greater than the most advanced conventional or nuclear rocket engines then under consideration. Supporters of Project Orion felt that it had potential for cheap interplanetary travel, but it lost political approval over concerns with fallout from its propulsion.[2]
The Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963 is generally acknowledged to have ended the project. However, from Project Longshot to Project Daedalus, Mini-Mag Orion, and other proposals which reach engineering analysis at the level of considering thermal power dissipation, the principle of external nuclear pulse propulsion to maximize survivable power has remained common among serious concepts for interstellar flight without external power beaming and for very high-performance interplanetary flight. Such later proposals have tended to modify the basic principle by envisioning equipment driving detonation of much smaller fission or fusion pellets, although in contrast Project Orion’s larger nuclear pulse units (nuclear bombs) were based on less speculative technology.
Basic principles
The Orion Spacecraft – key components.[3]
The Orion nuclear pulse drive combines a very high exhaust velocity, from 19 to 31 km/s in typical interplanetary designs, withmeganewtonsof thrust.[4] Many spacecraft propulsion drives can achieve one of these or the other, but nuclear pulse rockets are the only proposed technology that could potentially meet the extreme power requirements to deliver both at once (see spacecraft propulsion for more speculative systems).
Specific impulse (Isp) measures how much thrust can be derived from a given mass of fuel, and is a standard figure of merit for rocketry. For any rocket propulsion, since the kinetic energy of exhaust goes up with velocity squared (kinetic energy = ½ mv2), whereas the momentum and thrust goes up with velocity linearly (momentum = mv), obtaining a particular level of thrust (as in a number of g acceleration) requires far more power each time that exhaust velocity and specific impulse (Isp) is much increased in a design goal. (For instance, the most fundamental reasonthat current and proposed electric propulsion systems of high Isp tend to be low thrust is due to their limits on available power. 
Their thrust is actually inversely proportional to Isp if power going into exhaust is constant or at its limit from heat dissipation needs or other engineering constraints).[5] The Orion concept detonates nuclear explosions externally at a rate of power release which is beyond what nuclear reactors could survive internally with known materials and design.
Since weight is no limitation, an Orion craft can be extremely robust. An unmanned craft could tolerate very large accelerations, perhaps 100 g. A human-crewed Orion, however, must use some sort of damping system behind the pusher plate to smooth the instantaneous acceleration to a level that humans can comfortably withstand – typically about 2 to 4 g.
The high performance depends on the high exhaust velocity, in order to maximize the rocket’s force for a given mass of propellant. The velocity of the plasma debris is proportional to the square root of the change in the temperature (Tc) of the nuclear fireball. Since fireballs routinely achieve ten million degrees Celsius or more in less than a millisecond, they create very high velocities. However, a practical design must also limit the destructive radius of the fireball. The diameter of the nuclear fireball is proportional to the square root of the bomb’s explosive yield.
The shape of the bomb’s reaction mass is critical to efficiency. The original project designed bombs with a reaction mass made of tungsten. The bomb’s geometry and materials focused theX-rays and plasma from the core of nuclear explosive to hit the reaction mass. In effect each bomb would be a nuclear shaped charge.
A bomb with a cylinder of reaction mass expands into a flat, disk-shaped wave of plasma when it explodes. A bomb with a disk-shaped reaction mass expands into a far more efficient cigar-shaped wave of plasma debris. The cigar shape focuses much of the plasma to impinge onto the pusher-plate.
The maximum effective specific impulse, Isp, of an Orion nuclear pulse drive generally is equal to:
where C0 is the collimation factor (what fraction of the explosion plasma debris will actually hit the impulse absorber plate when a pulse unit explodes), Ve is the nuclear pulse unit plasma debris velocity, and gn is the standard acceleration of gravity (9.81 m/s2; this factor is not necessary if Isp is measured in N·s/kg or m/s). A collimation factor of nearly 0.5 can be achieved by matching the diameter of the pusher plate to the diameter of the nuclear fireball created by the explosion of a nuclear pulse unit.
The smaller the bomb, the smaller each impulse will be, so the higher the rate of impulses and more than will be needed to achieve orbit. Smaller impulses also mean less g shock on the pusher plate and less need for damping to smooth out the acceleration.
The optimal Orion drive bomblet yield (for the human crewed 4,000 ton reference design) was calculated to be in the region of 0.15 kt, with approx 800 bombs needed to orbit and a bomb rate of approx 1 per second.[citation needed]
Sizes of Orion vehicles[edit]
The following can be found in George Dyson‘s book[6] pg. 55 published in 2002. The figures for the comparison with Saturn V are taken from this section and converted from metric (kg) to US short tons (abbreviated “t” here).

In late 1958 to early 1959, it was realized that the smallest practical vehicle would be determined by the smallest achievable bomb yield. The use of 0.03 kt (sea-level yield) bombs would give vehicle mass of 880 tons. However, this was regarded as too small for anything other than an orbital test vehicle and the team soon focused on a 4,000 ton “base design”.

1,080 NUCLEAR BOMBS NEEDED TO LAUNCH ONE ROCKET INTO ORBIT

At that time, the details of small bomb designs were shrouded in secrecy. Many Orion design reports had all details of bombs removed before release. Contrast the above details with the 1959 report by General Atomics,[10] which explored the parameters of three different sizes of hypothetical Orion spacecraft:
“Satellite”
Orion”Midrange”
Orion”Super”

Number of bombs 540 1,080 1,080
Individual bomb mass 0.22 t 0.37–0.75 t 3000 t
The biggest design above is the “super” Orion design; at 8 million tonnes, it could easily be a city.[11] In interviews, the designers contemplated the large ship as a possible interstellar ark. This extreme design could be built with materials and techniques that could be obtained in 1958 or were anticipated to be available shortly after. The practical upper limit is likely to be higher with modern materials.
Most of the three thousand tonnes of each of the “super” Orion’s propulsion units would be inert material such as polyethylene, or boron salts, used to transmit the force of the propulsion units detonation to the Orion’s pusher plate, and absorb neutrons to minimize fallout. One design proposed by Freeman Dyson for the “Super Orion” called for the pusher plate to be composed primarily of uranium or a transuranic element so that upon reaching a nearby star system the plate could be converted to nuclear fuel.

Interplanetary applications

The Orion nuclear pulse rocket design has extremely high performance. Orion nuclear pulse rockets using nuclear fission type pulse units were originally intended for use on interplanetary space flights.
Missions that were designed for an Orion vehicle in the original project included single stage (i.e., directly from Earth’s surface) to Mars and back, and a trip to one of the moons of Saturn.[11]
One possible modern mission for this near-term technology would be to deflect an asteroid that could collide with Earth. The extremely high performance would permit even a late launch to succeed, and the vehicle could effectively transfer a large amount of kinetic energy to the asteroid by simple impact. Also, such an unmanned mission would eliminate the need for shock absorbers, the most problematic issue of the design.
Nuclear fission pulse unit powered Orions could provide fast and economical interplanetary transportation with useful human crewed payloads of several thousand tonnes.

Interstellar missions

Freeman Dyson performed the first analysis of what kinds of Orion missions were possible to reach Alpha Centauri, the nearest star system to the Sun.[12] His 1968 paper “Interstellar Transport”[13] (Physics Today, October 1968, p. 41–45) retained the concept of large nuclear explosions but Dyson moved away from the use of fission bombs and considered the use of one megaton deuterium fusion explosions instead. His conclusions were simple: the debris velocity of fusion explosions was probably in the 3000–30,000 km/s range and the reflecting geometry of Orion’s hemispherical pusher plate would reduce that range to 750–15,000 km/s.[14]
To estimate the upper and lower limits of what could be done using contemporary technology (in 1968), Dyson considered two starship designs. The more conservative energy limited pusher plate design simply had to absorb all the thermal energy of each impinging explosion (4×1015joules, half of which would be absorbed by the pusher plate) without melting. 

Dyson estimated that if the exposed surface consisted of copper with a thickness of 1 mm, then the diameter and mass of the hemispherical pusher plate would have to be 20 kilometers and 5 million metric tons, respectively. 100 seconds would be required to allow the copper to radiatively cool before the next explosion. It would then take on the order of 1000 years for the energy-limited heat sink Orion design to reach Alpha Centauri.
In order to improve on this performance while reducing size and cost, Dyson also considered an alternative momentum limited pusher plate design where an ablation coating of the exposed surface is substituted to get rid of the excess heat. The limitation is then set by the capacity of shock absorbers to transfer momentum from the impulsively accelerated pusher plate to the smoothly accelerated vehicle. Dyson calculated that the properties of available materials limited the velocity transferred by each explosion to ~30 meters per second independent of the size and nature of the explosion. If the vehicle is to be accelerated at 1 Earth gravity (9.81 m/s2) with this velocity transfer, then the pulse rate is one explosion every three seconds.[15] The dimensions and performance of Dyson’s vehicles are given in the table below

Later studies indicate that the top cruise velocity that can theoretically be achieved by a Teller-Ulam thermonuclear unit powered Orion starship, assuming no fuel is saved for slowing back down, is about 8% to 10% of the speed of light (0.08-0.1c).[2] An atomic (fission) Orion can achieve perhaps 3%-5% of the speed of light. A nuclear pulse drive starship powered by Fusion-antimatter catalyzed nuclear pulse propulsion units would be similarly in the 10% range and pure Matter-antimatter annihilation rockets would be theoretically capable of obtaining a velocity between 50% to 80% of the speed of light
In each case saving fuel for slowing down halves the max. speed. The concept of using a magnetic sail to decelerate the spacecraft as it approaches its destination has been discussed as an alternative to using propellant, this would allow the ship to travel near the maximum theoretical velocity.[16]
At 0.1c, Orion thermonuclear starships would require a flight time of at least 44 years to reach Alpha Centauri, not counting time needed to reach that speed (about 36 days at constant acceleration of 1g or 9.8 m/s2). At 0.1c, an Orion starship would require 100 years to travel 10 light years. The astronomer Carl Sagan suggested that this would be an excellent use for current stockpiles of nuclear weapons.[17]

Later developments

A concept similar to Orion was designed by the British Interplanetary Society (B.I.S.) in the years 1973–1974. Project Daedalus was to be a robotic interstellar probe to Barnard’s Star that would travel at 12% of the speed of light. In 1989, a similar concept was studied by the U.S. Navy and NASA in Project Longshot. Both of these concepts require significant advances in fusion technology, and therefore cannot be built at present, unlike Orion.
From 1998 to the present, the nuclear engineering department at Pennsylvania State University has been developing two improved versions of project Orion known as Project ICAN and Project AIMStar using compact antimatter catalyzed nuclear pulse propulsion units,[18] rather than the large inertial confinement fusion ignition systems proposed in Project Daedalus and Longshot.[19]

Economics

The expense of the fissionable materials required was thought high, until the physicist Ted Taylor showed that with the right designs for explosives, the amount of fissionables used on launch was close to constant for every size of Orion from 2,000 tons to 8,000,000 tons. The larger bombs used more explosives to super-compress the fissionables, increasing efficiency. The extra debris from the explosives also serves as additional propulsion mass.
The bulk of costs for historical nuclear defense programs have been for delivery and support systems, rather than for production cost of the bombs directly (with warheads being 7% of the U.S. 1946-1996 expense total according to one study).[20] After initial infrastructure development and investment, the marginal cost each of additional nuclear bombs in mass production can be relatively low. In the 1980s, some U.S. thermonuclear warheads had $1.1 million estimated cost each ($630 million for 560).[21] For the perhaps simpler fission pulse units to be used by one Orion design, a 1964 source estimated a cost of $40,000 or less each in mass production, which would be up to approximately $0.3 million each in modern-day dollars adjusted for inflation.[21][22]

PROJECT DAEDALUS – FUSION EXPLOSIVES ROCKET ENGINE

Project Daedalus later proposed fusion explosives (deuterium or tritium pellets) detonated by electron beam inertial confinement. This is the same principle behind inertial confinement fusion. However, theoretically, it might be scaled down to far smaller explosions, and require small shock absorbers.

Vehicle architecture

A design for the Orion propulsion module
From 1957 until 1964 this information was used to design a spacecraft propulsion system called “Orion”, in which nuclear explosives would be thrown behind a pusher-plate mounted on the bottom of a spacecraft and exploded. The shock wave and radiation from the detonation would impact against the underside of the pusher plate, giving it a powerful “kick”. The pusher plate would be mounted on large two-stage shock absorbers that would smoothly transmit acceleration to the rest of the spacecraft.
During take-off, there were concerns of danger from fluidic shrapnel being reflected from the ground. One proposed solution was to use a flat plate of conventional explosives spread over the pusher plate, and detonate this to lift the ship from the ground before going nuclear. This would lift the ship far enough into the air that the first focused nuclear blast would not create debris capable of harming the ship.
A design for a pulse unit.
A preliminary design for a nuclear pulse unit was produced. It proposed the use of a shaped-charge fusion-boosted fission explosive. The explosive was wrapped in a beryllium oxide “channel filler”, which was surrounded by a uranium radiation mirror. The mirror and channel filler were open ended, and in this open end a flat plate of tungsten propellant was placed. The whole thing was built into a can with a diameter no larger than 6 inches (15 cm) and weighed just over 300 pounds (140 kg) so it could be handled by machinery scaled-up from a soft-drink vending machine (indeed, Coca-Cola was consulted on the design).[23]
At 1 microsecond after ignition, the gamma bomb plasma and neutrons would heat the channel filler, and be somewhat contained by the uranium shell. At 2–3 microseconds, the channel filler would transmit some of the energy to the propellant, which vaporized. The flat plate of propellant formed a cigar-shaped explosion aimed at the pusher plate.
The plasma would cool to 14,000 °C, as it traversed the 25 m distance to the pusher plate, and then reheat to 67,000 °C, as (at about 300 microseconds) it hit the pusher plate and recompressed. This temperature emits ultraviolet, which is poorly transmitted through most plasmas. This helps keep the pusher plate cool. The cigar shaped distribution profile and low density of the plasma reduces the instantaneous shock to the pusher plate.
The pusher plate’s thickness would decrease by about a factor of 6 from the center to the edge, so that the net velocity of the inner and outer parts of the plate are the same, even though the momentum transferred by the plasma increases from the center outwards.
At low altitudes where the surrounding air is dense, gamma scattering could potentially harm the crew and a radiation refuge would be necessary anyway on long missions to survive solar flares. Radiation shielding effectiveness increases exponentially with shield thickness (see gamma ray for a discussion of shielding), so on ships with mass greater than a thousand tons, the structural bulk of the ship, its stores, and the mass of the bombs and propellant would provide more than adequate shielding for the crew.
Stability was initially thought to be a problem due to inaccuracies in the placement of the bombs, but it was later shown that the effects would tend to cancel out.[24][25]
Numerous model flight tests (using conventional explosives) were conducted at Point Loma, San Diego in 1959. On November 14, the one-meter model, called “Hot Rod” (or “putt-putt”), first flew using RDX (chemical explosives) in a controlled flight for 23 seconds to a height of 56 meters. Film of the tests has been transcribed to video[26] shown on the BBC TV program “To Mars by A-Bomb” in 2003 with comments by Freeman Dyson and Arthur C. Clarke. The model landed by parachute undamaged and is in the collection of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
The first proposed shock absorber was merely a ring-shaped airbag. However, it was soon realized that, should an explosion fail, the 500 to 1000 ton pusher plate would tear away the airbag on the rebound. So a two-stage, detuned spring/piston shock absorber design was developed. On the reference design, the first stage mechanical absorber was tuned 4.5 times the pulse frequency whilst the second stage gas piston was tuned to 1/2 times the pulse frequency. This permitted timing tolerances of 10 ms in each explosion.
The final design coped with bomb failure by overshooting and rebounding into a ‘center’ position. Thus, following a failure (and on initial ground launch) it would be necessary to start (or restart) the sequence with a lower yield device. In the 1950s methods of adjusting bomb yield were in their infancy and considerable thought was given to providing a means of ‘swapping out’ a standard yield bomb for a smaller yield one in a 2 or 3 second time frame (or to provide an alternative means of firing low yield bombs). Modern variable yield devices would allow a single standardized explosive to be ‘tuned down’ (configured to a lower yield) automatically.
The bombs had to be launched behind the pusher plate fast enough to explode 20 to 30 m beyond it every 1.1 seconds or so. Numerous proposals were investigated, from multiple guns poking over the edge of the pusher plate to rocket propelled bombs launched from ‘roller coaster’ tracks, however the final reference design used a simple gas gun to shoot the devices through a hole in the center of the pusher plate.

Potential problems

Exposure to repeated nuclear blasts raises the problem of ablation (erosion) of the pusher plate. However, calculations and experiments indicate that a steel pusher plate would ablate less than 1 mm if unprotected. If sprayed with an oil, it need not ablate at all (this was discovered by accident; a test plate had oily fingerprints on it, and the fingerprints suffered no ablation). The absorption spectra of carbon and hydrogen minimize heating. The design temperature of the shockwave, 67,000 °C, emits ultraviolet. Most materials and elements are opaque to ultraviolet, especially at the 340 MPa pressures the plate experiences. This prevents the plate from melting or ablating.
One issue that remained unresolved at the conclusion of the project was whether or not the turbulence created by the combination of the propellant and ablated pusher plate would dramatically increase the total ablation of the pusher plate. According to Freeman Dyson, during the 1960s they would have had to actually perform a test with a real nuclear explosive to determine this; with modern simulation technology, this could be determined fairly accurately without such empirical investigation.
Another potential problem with the pusher plate is that of spalling—shards of metal—potentially flying off the top of the plate. The shockwave from the impacting plasma on the bottom of the plate passes through the plate and reaches the top surface. At that point spalling may occur, damaging the pusher plate. For that reason, alternative substances (e.g., plywood and fiberglass) were investigated for the surface layer of the pusher plate, and thought to be acceptable.
If the conventional explosives in the nuclear bomb detonate, but a nuclear explosion does not ignite (a dud), shrapnel could strike and potentially critically damage the pusher plate.
True engineering tests of the vehicle systems were said to be impossible because several thousand nuclear explosions could not be performed in any one place. However, experiments were designed to test pusher plates in nuclear fireballs. Long-term tests of pusher plates could occur in space. Several of these tests almost flew. The shock-absorber designs could be tested at full-scale on Earth using chemical explosives.

NUCLEAR FALLOUT

But the main unsolved problem for a launch from the surface of the Earth was thought to be nuclear fallout. Any explosions within the magnetosphere would carry fissionables back to earth unless the spaceship were launched from a polar region such as a barge in the higher regions of the Arctic, with the initial launching explosion to be a large mass of conventional high explosive only to significantly reduce fallout; subsequent detonations would be in the air and therefore much cleaner. Antarctica is not viable, as this would require enormous legal changes as the continent is presently an international wildlife preserve.
Freeman Dyson, group leader on the project, estimated back in the 1960s that with conventional nuclear weapons (a large fraction of yield from fission), each launch would cause statistically on average between 0.1 and 1 fatal cancers from the fallout.[27] That estimate is based on no threshold model assumptions, a method often used in estimates of statistical deaths from other major industrial activities, such as how modern-day U.S. regulatory agencies frequently implement regulations on more conventional pollution if one life or more is predicted saved per $6 million to $8 million of economic costs incurred.[28] 
Each few million dollars of efficiency indirectly gained or lost in the world economy may statistically average lives saved or lost, in terms of opportunity gains versus costs.[29] Indirect effects could matter for whether the overall influence of an Orion-based space program on future human global mortality would be a net increase or a net decrease, including if change in launch costs and capabilities affected space exploration, space colonization, the odds of long-term human species survival, space-based solar power, or other hypotheticals.
Danger to human life was not a reason given for shelving the project – those included lack of mission requirement (no-one in the US Government could think of any reason to put thousands of tons of payload into orbit), the decision to focus on rockets (for the Moon mission) and, ultimately, the signing of the Partial Test Ban Treaty in 1963. The danger to electronic systems on the ground (from electromagnetic pulse) was not considered to be significant from the sub-kiloton blasts proposed since solid-state integrated circuits were not in general use at the time.
Orion-style nuclear pulse rockets can be launched from above the magnetosphere so that charged ions of fallout in its exhaust plasma are not trapped by the Earth’s magnetic field and are not returned to Earth.
From many smaller detonations combined, the fallout for the entire launch of a 6,000 short ton(5,500 metric ton) Orion is equal to the detonation of a typical 10 megaton (40 petajoule) nuclear weapon as an airburst, and therefore most of its fallout would be the comparatively dilute delayed fallout, if pessimistically assuming the use of nuclear explosives with a high portion of total yield from fission, it would produce a combined fallout total similar to the surface burst yield of the Mike shot of Operation Ivy(10.4 Megaton) in 1952, although the comparison is not quite perfect, as due to its surface burst location, Ivy Mike created a large amount of early fallout contamination. 
Historical above-ground nuclear weapon tests included 189 megatons of fission yield and caused average global radiation exposure per person peaking at 0.11 mSv/a in 1963, with a 0.007 mSv/a residual in modern times (superimposed upon other sources of exposure, primarily natural background radiation which averages 2.4 mSv/a globally but varies greatly, such as 6 mSv/a in some high-altitude cities).[30][31] Any comparison would be influenced by how population dosage is affected by detonation locations, with very remote sites preferred.
With special designs of the nuclear explosive, Ted Taylor estimated that fission product fallout could be reduced tenfold, or even to zero if a pure fusion explosive could be constructed instead. A 100% pure fusion explosive has yet to be successfully developed according to declassified US government documents, although relatively clean PNEs (Peaceful nuclear explosions) were tested for canal excavation by the Soviet Union in the 1970s with 98% fusion yield in the Taigatest’s 15 kiloton devices (only 0.3 kilotons fission), [27][32] which excavated part of the proposed Pechora–Kama Canal.
The vehicle and its test program would violate the Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963 as currently written, which prohibited all nuclear detonations except those conducted underground, both as an attempt to slow the arms race and to limit the amount of radiation in the atmosphere caused by nuclear detonations. There was an effort by the US government to put an exception into the 1963 treaty to allow for the use of nuclear propulsion for spaceflight, but Soviet fears about military applications kept the exception out of the treaty. 
This limitation would affect only the US, Russia, and the United Kingdom. It would also violate the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty which has been signed by the United States and China, as well as the de facto moratorium on nuclear testing that the declared nuclear powers have imposed since the 1990s. Project Orion however would not violate the Outer Space Treaty which bans nuclear weapons in space, but not peaceful uses of nuclear explosions.
It has been suggested that the restrictions of the Treaty would not apply to the Project Daedalus fusion microexplosion rocket. Daedalus class systems use pellets of one gram or less ignited by particle or laser beams to produce very small fusion explosions with a maximum explosive yield of only 10–20 tons of TNT equivalent.
The launch of such an Orion nuclear bomb rocket from the ground or from low Earth orbit would generate an electromagnetic pulse that could cause significant damage to computers and satellites, as well as flooding the van Allen belts with high-energy radiation. 
This problem might be solved by launching from very remote areas, because the EMP footprint would be only a few hundred miles wide. The Earth is well shielded by the Van Allen belts. In addition, a few relatively small space-based electrodynamic tethers could be deployed to quickly eject the energetic particles from the capture angles of the Van Allen belts.
An Orion spacecraft could be boosted by non-nuclear means to a safer distance, only activating its drive well away from Earth and its attendant satellites. The Lofstrom launch loop or a space elevator hypothetically provide excellent solutions, although in the case of the space elevator existing carbon nanotubes composites do not yet have sufficient tensile strength. All chemical rocket designs are extremely inefficient (and expensive) when launching mass into orbit, but could be employed if the result were viewed as worth the cost.

Operation Plumbbob

Main article: Operation Plumbbob
A test similar to the test of a pusher plate occurred as an accidental side effect of a nuclear containment test called “Pascal-B” conducted on 27 August 1957.[33] The test’s experimental designer Dr. Brownlee performed a highly approximate calculation that suggested that the low-yield nuclear explosive would accelerate the massive (900 kg) steel capping plate to six times escape velocity.[34] The plate was never found, but Dr. Brownlee believes that the plate never left the atmosphere (for example it could have been vaporized by compression heating of the atmosphere due to its high speed). The calculated velocity was sufficiently interesting that the crew trained a high-speed camera on the plate, which unfortunately only appeared in one frame, but this nevertheless gave a very high lower bound for the speed.”

Project NERVA was an acronym for Nuclear Engine for Rocket Vehicle Application, a joint program of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and NASA managed by the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office (SNPO) at the Nuclear Rocket Development Station in Jackass Flats, Nevada U.S.A.Between 1959 and 1972, the Space Nuclear Propulsion Office oversaw 23 reactor tests, both the program and the office ended at the end of 1972.

RADIOACTIVE HYDROGEN GAS STREAMED INTO AIR WITH NO LIMITS, NO ONE WAS WARNED DOWNWIND

What none of the videos and descriptions above talk about is that a nuclear core melted down on at least one occasion, releasing massive amounts of radiation, just like any other nuclear reactor melting down. No one was warned, and no one was given KI tablets or anything else. 
To perform these tests, an open fission reactor with no radiation safety systems or shielding was put out in the open and hydrogen gas was heated up inside of the reactor and then burned out in the open air. At the point where it left the reactor, it became radioactive hydrogen gas, due to neutron activation, which all of the accounts above fail to mention somehow. Massive quantities of poisonous, radioactive gas were shot up into the air on numerous ocassions, but again, no one was warned or notified downwind.
They claim no one was injured or died from the melt down of a nuclear reactor. According to them, the release of massive quantities of radioactive hydrogen had no effect on anyone or anything. All of these descriptions make for good pro nuclear propaganda, but none of it is true.

The individuals and army troops sent in to remove or ‘decontaminate’ the area where the reactor melted down were not warned. They were not given dosimeters or monitored after this ‘experiment’. Many of them suffered from radiation exposure and sickness, but no one told them this was the cause and no doctors checked them for this, as it was all covered up.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A NUCLEAR POWERED ROCKET FAILS ON LAUNCH PAD, OR IN AIR, OR IN LOW EARTH ORBIT? 

Launching a nuclear reactor into the air is worse than launching a nuclear bomb on top of a rocket. Why? A nuclear bomb contains possibly 10 pounds of uranium. A nuclear reactor can contain up to 100 TONS of uranium and/or plutonium. Plutonium is orders of magnitude worse in terms of killing power and cancer causing potential than uranium. What happens if one or more of these nuclear reactors on a rocket fails on the launchpad? What happens if it fails on the way up or in orbit?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/04/1962-1964-indian-ocean-multiple.html

These satellites containing a couple of pounds of plutonium are bad enough. But imagine TONS of uranium and/or plutonium melting and turning into gas and hot particles in the atmosphere or on the launch pad as a huge fireball and explosion of hydrogen gas consumes everything? Of course, if something goes wrong, the moderators will probably fail as well, meaning that the reactor will melt down in space, in the air or on the ground launchpad, as we already have one example of above. Without any containment, and out in the open air, a melting down reactor is a mega nuclear disaster, worse than Chernobyl and TMI.

FREE FILTER TESTING

Testing and analytical services for the program are provided by KI4U, Inc. of Gonzales, TX. (http://www.ki4u.com). Widely regarded as one of the nation’s most experienced radiological instrument testing and calibration labs, KI4U has the instruments, staffing and experience necessary to quickly and efficiently carry out the testing program.
AlertsUSA (http://www.AlertsUSA.com) is sponsoring the testing program. The company provides America’s gold standard national security threat and incident notification service for mobile devices. Their publication, Threat Journal (mentioned above) is the official mechanism for regular updates on the RadTest4U national test program.
Get a tracking number from RadTest4U.com (http://www.RadTest4U.com), which is just the program registration website.

Be careful when handling filters as they can be highly toxic and radioactive. Wear glove, mask and minimize any movement that can release dust into the air. Enclose filter in a plastic bag as soon as it is removed and seal it before moving it further. Take a shower and wash clothes afterwards, just in case.

HOW AND WHERE TO PURCHASE YOUR OWN RADIATION DETECTOR

If you don’t have a radiation detector, click on the link below. This brand is recommended by AGRP and has the round pancake style of detector head, which is much more sensitive than the cheaper tube types of detectors. Cheaper brands and many more choices are available at the AGRP store link..

A FINAL NOTE

Checkmate November 17, 2014 “DrG, thanks for your filter readings- perhaps you need a Hepa 15 on your furnace. With my HEPA #15 on the furnace, I thought of doing another test on my small space air filter with a HEPA #15 in a room and to see how much that caught after the furnace HEPA.
As far as the mentioned free testing goes- I was not really impressed at all. My previous HEPA#15 tested after 6 months use and very dirty tested at about 110% above my background there- a far cry from my personal Inspector Alert reading of 1,267% to 2,690% cpms counts above my average on the last filter I did myself. Also nothing was tested as far as cesium or anything else for that matter, only the cpms. And it is not cheap to ship UPS…
But like anything, I believe a lot is being fudged- whether it is maybe an occasional lab or some rad monitoring sites or even some companies testing and re-setting your GC. Whom do you trust now days??? Government is far reaching… And most people want to please the big G to some extend in order not to be completely shut down in their businesses…so the bend is there…just don’t break the twig or else.”
Checkmate points out that a filter should be HEPA rated in order to filter out as many radioactive hot particles as possible. HEPA will do a better job of getting dangerous things out of the air, when compared with just an ordinary furnace filter. Combine HEPA with ionization to grab even more dust out of the air, which then avoids going into your lungs, which are also an air filter. Check your vehicle air filter regularly too, if you have one. Of course, change all of them regularly. 

DOUBLE TEST WHEN EVER POSSIBLE

Of course, it pays to double test all filters if possible. As Checkmate points out above, even ‘free’ labs like this may ‘fudge’ the numbers, so a good strategy is to send your filter to be tested by at least two places and then compare them side by side. If they are close to being the same in terms of numbers, and they are both non nuclear industry labs, then you more than likely have an accurate, true result. 
You can test a filter using your own radiation detector, (or a nearby friend) and then send it in to be tested and see what they come up with compared to your own radiation reading. It also pays to keep a filter sitting for a week and test it during that whole time, day after day. See if the radiation readings you get vary at all, before you send it away. 
There is a slight chance that radon coming through during a rainstorm can affect the results. Because radon decays so rapidly, it can show high levels right as the storm is coming through, but then a week later, the same sample is showing background radiation.

Many States And Countries Have Deregulated Energy Suppliers; Switch To A 100% Green Carbon Free, Nuclear Free Energy Supplier

Unhooking from the dirty carbon and nuclear fuel industry can be as easy as choosing who supplies your energy and switching to a green energy supplier. You still get a bill, but you don’t have to buy or install ANYTHING.
Many states have opened up the energy market to competition. You can now pick who your energy supplier is. In other words, you can switch to a provider who offers a 100% zero carbon renewable energy source, such as wind, water, or solar, and say NO to the dirty nuclear and carbon fuel industries. More in depth info at; https://www.opensecrets.org/news/issues/electricity/
Watch the video to understand how it works with just one of many energy providers available in many states. 
“Viridian offers a selection of responsible energy products for residential and commercial customers in deregulated energy markets. With Viridian, it’s easy to choose affordable, responsible, clean energy for your home or business while staying with your utility for delivery, service and billing. The deregulation of energy has allowed customers the opportunity to choose their energy “supplier.” 
Your utility company will still “deliver” the same reliable energy you’ve always had and service your needs, as well as, provide you with the same, simple bill. There will be no service interruption to your home or business. We all have been using “brown” energy for all of our lives. Now is the time to make a difference. It’s crucial to our environment, our life, our health, and our future.. You have an opportunity to make an impact on the environment while making the choice to “Go Green” with Viridian…Power with purpose. Ask me how you can choose green energy for FREE!”

For those who like Fox News, they do a pretty good job of describing deregulation, but avoid any mention of green zero carbon, zero nuclear energy providers, of course.

GLOBAL ENERGY PROVIDER DEREGULATION; IT IS POSSIBLE TO SWITCH TO GREEN ENERGY PROVIDERS IN MANY NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD

Countries other than the US are also deregulating their energy supply, offering choices to both business and residential energy consumers. Just choose a green energy supplier, and you have turned off a dirty carbon or nuclear plant. It cannot get any easier than that. 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_provider_switching

MAJOR ENERGY PROVIDER SWITCHES SIDES

Via m a x l i December 1, 2014 “Change of strategy: E.on wants to get rid of nuclear, gas and coal Energy provider E.on carries out radical change of strategy. It wants to get rid of its business with conventional energy. Instead, it will will focus on renewable energy and service.”
(E.on is one of the four major energy suppliers in Germany. All four of them were vehement and outspoken nuclear and fossil promoters and renewable antagonists – until now.)”

SUMMARY

As more and more people demand renewable energy sources and switch their source of all energy that they consume to 100% carbon free, nuclear free sources, the pressure will build on the energy providers to do the same. Do what you can, where you can on a local level, to help move things in a renewable energy direction and away from carbon and nuclear fuels of all kinds.

Be part of the revolution. Switch to a 100% zero carbon, zero nuclear energy supplier and choose that option. Not all energy suppliers offer this option, so you may have to call around. Make sure you don’t get fooled by a ‘clean energy’ greenwashing promise.

Clean coal, clean gas, and clean nuclear are all part of the greenwashing campaign to sucker people into buying dirty power by promising ‘clean’ something or other. Ask your energy supplier how to buy zero carbon, zero nuclear energy such as wind, water, geothermal or solar, while excluding gas, coal, oil and nuclear. Demand that they switch their future energy policy to 100% carbon and nuclear free. The more people that complain and make demands like this, the more the pressure builds on them to move in that direction. Every voice counts. Make your voice heard.

Small Scale Grid Tie In Inverters Make It Easy And Cheap To Zero Out Your Electric Bill – Be A Part Of The Zero Carbon, Zero Nuclear Revolution, By Switching Energy Providers

SMALL SCALE GRID TIE IN INVERTER; BEING A REVOLUTIONARY

Most people think that going solar is expensive. Most people believe that a solar system is expensive and not worth doing, due to all of the hassles and cost. What if all of those problems got solved? What if there was a way to avoid permits or expensive contractors and get a solar system put on your home, boat, RV, or cabin? The answers are all here, now. Anyone can switch to 100% renewable energy now, for little or no money. This article will show you two ways to become a revolutionary and fight back against the carbon and nuclear fuel monopolies that are polluting the environment and killing the planet.

START SMALL – FOR A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS, YOU CAN OWN YOUR OWN SOLAR SYSTEM AND REDUCE YOUR ELECTRIC BILL

Here is how anyone can tie in a couple of solar panels in any home, RV, cabin, boat or business, no matter what the law, rules, utility says or wants.  Be part of the revolution. Start small and work up to bigger things. This is so easy to do, that anyone can do it. The heart of the system is a plug in grid tie in inverter, that you can basically just plug and play, just like a video game, or a computer. It is that easy to install. 

It is now possible to hook up solar panels, and/or a small micro water power Pelton Wheel on a small stream and/or or a small wind generator, and be part of a zero carbon, zero nuclear revolution. Start small, and build up monthly over time.

ADD A SMALL 12 VOLT WIND POWER GENERATOR

What free energy source do you have around where you live? Wind? Buy a small 12 volt wind power generator, and then set it up.  Hook it into this inverter grid tie in device and plug it into the wall. You are done. 
A Green Road Store – Price compare; Wind Generator
Water power? If you have a small stream with a lot of drop, it does not take much money, energy or effort to hook up a mini pelton wheel power generator.

ADD A MICRO GRID TIE IN INVERTER

Connect the wires coming from the power source into the inverter grid tie in device and plug it into the wall. You are done. 
A Green Road Store – Price compare; Micro Grid Tie In Inverters
This is how it all hooks together…..

START WITH ONE OR MORE 100 WATT SOLAR PANELS

Solar power? If you have sun and a place to put a couple of panels, it does not take much money, energy or time to set them up. Hook one or more solar 100 watt 12 volt panels into this inverter grid tie in device and plug it into the wall. You are done. Rigid solar PV panels can be attached to the ground and propped up at an angle. Solar panels can be attached to a shed roof, or they can be attached to the side of the house and also serve as a window shade, when mounted over the tops of windows. 
A Green Road Store – Price compare; rigid Solar Panels

START WITH STICK ON FLEXIBLE SOLAR SHEETS

Stick on solar panels that can be applied to a flat surface via an adhesive on the back of the panels allow you to put these panels in places that normally would not work for solar panels. RV roofs, boat decks, storage sheds, metal mobile home roofs, window shades, metal awnings, and other flat roof surfaces are all places where stick on rolled out solar panels will work.


http://youtu.be/bOxt_z4QkDQ

Just stick them on a flat surface, hook them up and plug in the inverter inside your house. You are done and generating solar power, after spending only a couple of hundred bucks and maybe one hour of hooking things up at most.

UNHOOK FROM THE DIRTY CARBON AND NUCLEAR FUEL MONOPOLIES, CHOOSE A CLEAN, GREEN ENERGY SUPPLIER

Unhooking from the dirty carbon and nuclear fuel industry can be as easy as choosing who supplies your energy and switching to a green energy supplier. You still get a bill, but you don’t have to buy or install ANYTHING.

Comparing Ebola And Other Super Bug Outbreaks, Government Response To The Historic Spanish Flu Pandemic; Documentary Movie

Governments have lied about pandemics before, so the temptation is to do the same thing today. Especially if this Ebola outbreak gets worse and ends up in the US, it will be much easier to suppress the truth rather than to talk about it. The excuse is always; ‘preventing panic’. The first casualty of ‘war’ whether on drugs, terrorists, any enemy, pandemics or poverty, lies and propaganda is always the temptation, and so easy to do. 

The Spanish Flu, which killed an estimated 2 to 5% of the worlds population, has been the worst global epidemic in history. Worst case, if Ebola gets loosed on the world stage, it could top this worst ever epidemic total by orders of magnitude.

Via Wikipedia;

AGRP: (Note that the doctors and nurses in the picture above, who are treating Spanish Flu patients, are NOT WEARING ANY PROTECTIVE GEAR! Now compare that to the video at the top of this article, where doctors and everyone around them are suiting up in moon suits, wearing two or three pairs of gloves, two or three layers of protective clothing, and rubber boots, plus spraying down with disinfectant chlorine bleach. This should give you some indication of the lethality and infectiousness of this Ebola virus compared to anything that has come before this point. )

SPANISH FLU

World War I killed millions, but Nature showed just a small invisible virus can quickly kill many times more than even a World War. 
The 1918 flu pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus.[1] It infected 500 million[2] people across the world, including remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them—three to five percent of the world’s population[3]—making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history.[2][4][5][6]
Most influenza outbreaks disproportionately kill juvenile, elderly, or already weakened patients; in contrast the 1918 pandemic predominantly killed previously healthy young adults. Modern research, using virus taken from the bodies of frozen victims, has concluded that the virus kills through a cytokine storm (overreaction of the body’s immune system). The strong immune reactions of young adults ravaged the body, whereas the weaker immune systems of children and middle-aged adults resulted in fewer deaths among those groups.[7]
Historical and epidemiological data are inadequate to identify the pandemic’s geographic origin.[2] It was implicated in the outbreak of encephalitis lethargica in the 1920s.[8]
To maintain morale, wartime censors minimized early reports of illness and mortality in Germany, Britain, France, and the United States;[9][10] but papers were free to report the epidemic’s effects in neutral Spain (such as the grave illness of King Alfonso XIII), creating a false impression of Spain as especially hard hit[11]—thus the pandemic’s nickname Spanish flu.[12]
Source; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1918_flu_pandemic

GOVERNMENTS MISHANDLED SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC

Via rogerthat November 11, 2014 “… The U.S. National Academies of Science noted in 2005 (starting on the bottom of p. 64): In the United States, national and local government and public health authorities badly mishandled the [1918 “Spanish Flu”] epidemic [which killed up to 50 million people worldwide], offering a useful case study. 
The context is important. Every country engaged in World War I tried to control public perception. To avoid hurting morale, even in the nonlethal first wave the press in countries fighting in the war did not mention the outbreak. (But Spain was not at war and its press wrote about it, so the pandemic became known as the Spanish flu).
The United States was no different. In 1917 California Senator Hiram Johnson made the since-famous observation that “The first casualty when war comes is truth.” The U.S. government passed a law that made it punishable by 20 years in jail to “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the government of the United States.”

Liberia has an out of control Ebola epidemic.

Guinea has an out of control Ebola epidemic.

Sierra Leon has an out of control Ebola epidemic.

Eternal Life And Amazing Lessons From The Tallest, Largest, Oldest Living Being On Earth; The Redwood Tree

Does eternal life exist? Are there any examples of eternal life on Earth? What is the longest lived, tallest and largest living thing on planet Earth? Is there anything sacred in this world? This article will answer some these questions go into the question of eternal life. The article offers practical action points examples and ends with a question..


Wikipedia; Young but already tall redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens) in Oakland, California.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequoioideae

Images of redwood trees

REDWOOD TREES DESCRIPTION

The three redwood subfamily genera are: Sequoia and Sequoiadendron of California and Oregon, USA; and Metasequoia in China. The redwood species contains the largest and tallest trees in the world. These trees can live to an age of thousands of years. This is an endangered subfamily due to habitat losses from fire ecology suppression, logging, and air pollution.

TALLEST TREE IN THE WORLD

The tallest tree in the world is a Sequoia sempervirens, the Hyperion Tree.

LARGEST LIVING THING IN THE WORLD

The largest tree in the world, by volume, is a Sequoiadendron giganteum, the General Sherman 
This redwood has the title of being the largest living being on Earth.
Metasequoia glyptostroboides trees are so rare they were thought to be extinct, until rediscovered by a Chinese forester in 1943. They were found on mountainous slopes in remote parts of the Hubei region of China.

JOHN STEINBECK QUOTE ABOUT REDWOODS

John Steinbeck wrote about the redwood, “The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.[12]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequoioideae

REDWOOD TREE SEEDS, TINIEST SEED COMPARED TO SIZE OF MATURE ADULT TREE 

The seeds of the redwood tree grow inside of embryonic flowers at ends of branches. The seeds of the redwood are the smallest seeds that exist for the largest living being on Earth. The seeds are about the same size as those found in a tomato, which grows only a couple feet tall, and dies in a couple of months. Yet somehow, redwood trees grow to be the largest, tallest, most long lived beings on the planet from this smallest of tree seeds. It takes 2,000 to 3,000 years to reach it’s maturity.

LESSON FROM REDWOOD TREE SEEDS

Many people believe that their lives have no purpose, no meaning and what they do or say makes no difference. Many people believe that they are so small and insignificant that their existence means absolutely nothing, much like a tomato seed.
Yet, in the redwood tree seed is an example of something that is so small, it is very difficult to find it. It is almost impossible to see a redwood seed even from a human standpoint. If humans are small when seen from the top of a redwood tree, redwood seeds are microscopically invisible.

LESSON FROM A REDWOOD TREE SEED

Redwood trees end up growing out of these smallest of small tree seeds to become the largest, oldest, tallest and longest lived beings on Earth. What lesson can be learned from this smallest tree seed?

Dalai Lama – “Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.” –
It may be that the most important thing that you do for 7 future generations is to plant redwood tree seeds. Planting some very tiny and almost invisible redwood tree seeds sounds so insignificant, so small, so worthless, but it is very important that you do this, or something equivalent.
“The planting of a tree, especially one of the long-living hardwood trees, is a gift which you can make to posterity at almost no cost and with almost no trouble, and if the tree takes root it will far outlive the visible effect of any of your other actions, good or evil.” 
Sustainable actions are measured not in terms of 100 years, but by the  end result of an initial action when looked back on 3,000 years later. What is the 3,000 year result that comes from planting redwood tree seeds or seedlings in your life today? Maybe your name will be honored and celebrated by 600 future generations, due to being the one person responsible for planting one or more redwood trees, or possibly even a whole grove of redwood trees. 
“Tree planting is always a utopian enterprise, it seems to me, a wager on a future the planter doesn’t necessarily expect to witness.” 

WHAT SEEDS ARE YOU PLANTING WITH YOUR LIFE?

What ‘seeds’ are you planting with your daily actions? What fruit is your life going to produce for not just this generation, but for 600 future generations?

Redwood trees think like this. They think very long term, in the thousands of generations of humans. But what they say, think and feel, most people cannot hear, feel, understand or comprehend, because they are not even listening. Most people do not believe is even possible to commune with a tree, much less to be in harmony with Nature. Most people are too busy trying to figure out how to make money by chopping down redwood trees, for a short term gain. They don’t know what invisible consequences they will reap from this. 

What seeds are you planting in your life for 600 future generations, both inside and outside?

“I’m planting a tree to teach me to gather strength from my deepest roots.”
Andrea Koehle Jones, The Wish Trees

“Planting trees, I myself thought for a long time, was a feel-good thing, a nice but feeble response to our litany of modern-day environmental problems. In the last few years, though, as I have read many dozens of articles and books and interviewed scientists here and abroad, my thinking on the issue has changed. Planting trees may be the single most important ecotechnology that we have to put the broken pieces of our planet back together.” 

LONGEST LIVED BEING ON EARTH: A SINGLE TREE CAN LIVE UP TO 2,000 TO 3,000 YEARS, MAY LIVE ETERNALLY THROUGH SPROUTS

Giant Redwoods
Live up to 2,000 years
Have branches up to 5 feet in diameter
Bark grows up to 12 inches thick
Can reproduce either by seed or by sprout
Giant Sequoias
Live up to 3,000+ years
Have branches up to 8 feet in diameter
Bark grows up to 3 feet thick
Reproduce by seed only
The important thing to understand from the giant redwood description is that the tree can and does grow from a sprout that comes up from the roots around the base of the original tree. Whether a giant redwood tree is cut down, is felled by a fire, or by old age, the sprouts come up after the loss of the above ground portion of the tree. The question is, does this tree ever really die? The sprouts come up from the original roots after all. Could it be that a giant redwood actually lives forever? And what does this ‘eternal’ life of a giant redwood offer humans? 

REDWOODS THRIVED IN THE JURASSIC ERA, 160 MILLION YEARS AGO

The National Park Service reports that; “fossil records have shown that relatives of today’s coast redwoods thrived in the Jurassic Era 160 million years ago. And while the fantastic creatures of that age have long since disappeared, the redwoods continue to thrive, in the right environment. 

New sprouts may come directly from a stump or downed tree’s root system as a clone.

Basal burls — hard, knotty growths that form from dormant seedlings on a living tree — can sprout a new tree when the main trunk is damaged by fire, cutting, or toppling.


Human beings have only been around on the planet for around 50,000 years, according to archaeologists. Maybe it is time that humans became a little bit more humble around this ancient life form, which has existed for all eternity, as far as humans are concerned. What actions would you take if you met someone who had lived forever? What would you ask them? What respect would you give them? Is the best that humans can come up with is how fast to kill them all? 


FOG MAKES UP 40% OF THE WATER THAT REDWOODS NEED TO SURVIVE


Fog precipitates onto the forest greenery and then drips to the forest floor, providing a small bit of moisture during summer dry periods. Fog accounts for about 40 percent of the redwoods’ moisture intake.
http://www.nps.gov/redw/naturescience/about-the-trees.htm

LESSON FROM REDWOODS LIVING ON FOG

What is the lesson humans can learn from this example? If the mightiest, longest lived, and largest being on the planet can live from getting nothing more than fog, what is the lesson for humans in that fact?

Why can’t humans live like that? What if every home that people lived in had to manage it’s resources just on what it received from Nature, and not via utility company connections, huge dams and monstrous poison spewing energy plants?

The lesson that redwoods offer to teach humans is to simplify, and use much less. Humans need to learn how to live with MUCH less, rather than focusing on always getting more and never having enough. Literally, humans need to learn how to live with the equivalent of fog, just like a redwood. If humanity wants to survive, humans need to learn to live in harmony with Nature just as redwoods have done for the last 160 million years. Homes such as Earthships prove that this can be done, but most people have never heard of this kind of housing, which proves how far removed from Nature most people and civilized countries are. 

How can humans live off of the equivalent of ‘fog’? The fact is that it can be done, as people have lived off of fog in the desert where there is no other water source at all. What would it mean to surrender and to live in simple harmony with Nature and to live off of what it provides, instead of dominating and fighting Nature, while trying to take as much as possible out of it and other people, in order to get more, in a never ending fashion? People who live in harmony with Nature think and feel much like redwoods, with a sustainable orientation.

“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.”

MATURE REDWOOD FORESTS USED TO COVER ENTIRE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE OF THE PLANET 

There are some redwood trees alive today that have been standing since the Roman Empire, more than 2,000 years ago. In fact, there was a time when redwoods covered the entire northern hemisphere of the planet, around the world.

“To be poor and be without trees, is to be the most starved human being in the world. To be poor and have trees, is to be completely rich in ways that money can never buy.” 

HOW HUMANS ARE KILLING THE FEW SURVIVING REDWOOD GROVES BY CLEAR CUTTING THEM


According to the National Park Service; “Undoubtedly the most important environmental influence upon the coast redwood is its own biotic community. The complex soils on the forest floor contribute not only to the redwoods’ growth, but also to a verdant array of greenery, fungi, and other trees. A healthy redwood forest usually includes massive Douglas-firs, western hemlocks, tan oaks, madrones, and other trees. Among the ferns and leafy redwood sorrels, mosses and mushrooms help to regenerate the soils. And of course, the redwoods themselves eventually fall to the floor where they can be returned to the soil.
The coast redwood environment recycles naturally; because the 100-plus inches of annual rainfall leaves the soil with few nutrients, the trees rely on each other, living and dead for their vital nutrients. The trees need to decay naturally to fully participate in this cycle, so when logging occurs, the natural recycling is interrupted.”

God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.

A FEW PEOPLE, LIKE JULIA HILL, SACRIFICED MUCH TO TRY AND SAVE THESE MAJESTIC ONES

or-well November 11, 2014  She lived on 2 6×6 platforms, 738 days, in a tree, to save it –
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Butterfly_Hill

Many other activists tried to save mature redwood trees, but were forced out of the trees and were legally charged with crimes such as trespassing, because the current state of law and justice sides with corporations that rape, pillage and destroy the Earth and the right to kill 3,000 year old beings, all for a handful of fiat money, some political power, and a bigger mansion, with fancy redwood, teak and/or mahogany features built into it. 
“Fancy cutting down all those beautiful trees…to make pulp for those bloody newspapers, and calling it civilization. – Winston Churchill, remarking to his son during a visit to Canada in 1929” 

“Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind.
Their leaves are telling secrets. Their bark sings songs of olden days as it grows around the trunks. And their roots give names to all things.
Their language has been lost.
But not the gestures.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

WHAT CONSEQUENCES COME FROM THE PROFIT AT ANY COST CLEAR CUTTING FORESTS MODEL OF ‘MODERN CIVILIZATION’? 

There are those who say that just because they have the gold, and they ‘own’ the land, own the trees, and that they get to make the rules. There are many people who want to profit from cutting down redwood trees or forests, both mature or immature. 
There are those people who are willing to kill other people, steal, lie, pay bribes and do whatever it takes in order to get this profit. There is a literal world war going on today, between those who want to take, and those who live like the redwoods do, in harmony with Nature. So far, the takers are winning, but there is a huge price and many negative consequences to this never ending taking. 

“Spraying to kill trees and and raspberry bushes after a clear-cut merely looks unaesthetic for a short time, but tree plantations are deliberate ecodeath. Yet, tree planting is often pictorially advertised on television and in national magazines by focusing on cupped caring hands around a seedling. But forests do not need this godlike interference… Planting tree plantations is permanent deforestation… The extensive planting of just one exotic species removes thousands of native species.” 
Art And Science Of Deception; Global Corporations, CIA, Journalism And The 1%, Whistleblowers, Voting, Elections And Solutions
People have been killed trying to stop the wholesale clear cutting of hundreds of thousands of acres of old growth redwood trees, as well as other old growth forests all around the world, and no one was charged with any type of crime. A woman had a pipe bomb put in her car, and she was injured from it going off, in an attempt to kill her. The battle to save the oldest redwood trees on Earth has been brutal, bloody and shows no signs of letting up. 
There are so many huge and global web of life issues created by cutting down redwoods specifically, it is hard to detail them all. A large part of the issue is that redwoods are treated like ‘farms’ with trees as part of the ‘crop’, which is ‘owned’ by the farmer. Clear cutting is just like harvesting a farm field with a combine, leveling everything to the ground, and hauling off the crop to sell it at the market. 
Most tree ‘farmers’ act just like hunters, who take the biggest and genetically the strongest out, while leaving the weakest, youngest and genetically inferior trees. Taking this much biomass out of the forest has many and huge negative effect. Taking wood out of forests drains nutrients and biomass out of the topsoil, leaving each generation weaker than the previous one. In the same way, factory farms are destroying the soil that food is grown on, making each successive crop more devoid of nutrition and health.

Another consequence of raising and then clearcutting huge mono culture forests is that the climate changes to become much drier, resulting in more and more megadroughts as well as desertification. Huge trees change the micro climate around them and a forest changes the regional climate. It used to be that in areas where huge, mature redwood forests used to stand, the weather was much different and it actually rained in the summertime. Now it no longer rains in the summer at all, and the mature redwoods are all gone, with nothing but an ancient memory left to show for it. Even the money that was gained has been spent on selfish living for instant pleasures.

As the forests disappear, so too does the topsoil, the wildlife, and the streams. As streams fill in with silt, the fish disappear. As the water in streams, rivers and lakes disappears, most of the rest of the web of life that used to be supported by those mature redwoods disappears as well. Droughts and megadroughts become much more common, as do huge superstorms, because they are not moderated and soaked up by the mature redwoods, who stand as the eternal guardians and protectors of all life.

As the climate dries out and storms are not moderated by huge, mature redwood forests, the storms become more severe and destructive. Everything is connected to and affects everything else. As mature forests disappear, so the web of life unravels and the supporting structures that nurture life come apart, which results in mass die offs and extinctions all across the living web, including all the way up to human beings.

Today, redwood tree farmers harvest the second and third generation of young baby redwood trees while they are still soft and immature. These trees have little or no resistance to rot, compared to the old mature trees. Redwood lumber these days is no different than pine. Both pine and redwood lumber these days rots, molds and is subject to termites. In the oceans, the same thing is happening. Baby immature tuna are now being caught and sold, before they even breed. Mature adults are so rare, that they get sold for 1 million dollars if one is caught. But that has not slowed the pace of the genocide of all trees and animals.

Old mature trees that are over 1,500 years old actually put on much more wood and grow faster as they age, compared to young trees, but redwoods are not allowed to grow to maturity these days, as short term profits are the fad of the day and people think not of eternity or even the next generation, much less causing extinction of the entire web of life. The only thought is about profit and how to get people to spend money on the products that come from this short term selfish thinking. 

ALMOST ALL REDWOOD FORESTS HAVE BEEN CUT DOWN TWO OR THREE TIMES

National Geographic; The Super Trees

Except in small parks like Muir Woods outside San Francisco and Big Basin near Santa Cruz, where they encountered a few rare patches of ancient trees, they zigzagged 1,800 miles through stands that had been cut at least once and many that had been cut three times since 1850, leaving islands of larger second-growth forest in a sea of mostly small trees.

What happens to the forest ecology when a whole forest of redwoods is cut down not just once, but multiple times, with all of the wood mass (plus the minerals contained in them) hauled away permanently?

As the NPS article above points out, redwood forests are a complex web of intersecting relationships and living species that feed and support each other. Taking out all redwoods in an area threatens not only all of the other species that depend on the redwood trees, but it also threatens the redwoods with extinction, as their support bases and nutrition is taken away.

IN DEPTH ARTICLE ABOUT LARGEST SEQUOIA TREE, THE PRESIDENT

National Geographic; Giant Sequoias

That’s how they came to know that the President contains at least 54,000 cubic feet of wood and bark. And that’s how they detected that the old beast, at about the age of 3,200, is still growing quickly. It’s still inhaling great breaths of CO₂ and binding the carbon into cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin in a growing season interrupted by six months of cold and snow. Not bad for an oldster.

“When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly inter-twined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?”

UNDERSTORY 

To really understand the very complex and interdependent world that redwoods live  and move in, one has to understand the web of life that they are hooked into. The first glimpse of this world consists of the understory. Many other species live underneath and around mature forests such as the redwoods..

Many different shrubs populate the understory of old-growth redwood forests. Among them are berry bushes such as red and evergreen huckleberry, blackberry, salmonberry, and thimbleberry. Black bears and other inhabitants of the forest make use of these seasonal food sources. Perhaps the most famous and spectacular member of the redwood understory is the brilliantly colored California rhododendron. In springtime, the rhododendrons transform the redwood forests into a dazzling display of purple and pink colors.

http://www.nps.gov/redw/naturescience/about-the-trees.htm

Many or most of these understory species disappear with the ‘managed’ redwood forests that make up the ‘science’ of modern forestry. Again, there are huge consequences, prices and costs to not allowing Nature to take it’s course and forcing it to go into a man made, artificial way of surviving for short term profit. But those prices and costs are paid not by the corporation, but by the living web of life, the environment and human communities in the end.

IS THERE ANYTHING SACRED IN THIS WORLD?

If we asked redwood trees a question, what would we ask? Maybe a question would be; is there anything sacred in this world? What would be their answer? 

Life is sacred. Beings that live the longest are the most sacred, as they are the ‘holders’ of the keys of wisdom. Humans are sacred as well, but humans don’t often see this sacred part of themselves. Humans only rarely experience that they are sacred, or that all of life is sacred, and that those beings on this planet that live the longest are the most sacred of all.

There are a few ‘sacred groves’ around the world, guarded by special religious sects who recognize this truth. They dedicate their whole lives to guarding the sacred groves.

Sacred Groves
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_grove

Mature redwood trees could be seen as the most sacred being on the planet. This sacredness can be EXPERIENCED. Sacredness is not just an abstract word to read about. Sacredness is not just something to logically think about. Experiencing the sacred is a very deep, spiritual and meaningful part of the living experience of redwoods and potentially of humans as well. But humans have separated from Nature so much, and have gotten so far away from who they really are, that anything sacred seems frightening, threatening and scary, so it must be pushed away, due to fear of the unknown. Most civilized humans have forgotten so much, that when they run into spiritual reality, they are afraid of it, deny it, run away or try to kill it. 

What should people be doing around redwood trees? How about treating them as a sacred being? How about respecting and honoring them as a multidimensional being that many tens of thousands of other beings depend on?

A hypocrite is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation.
Adlai E. Stevenson

REDWOODS SING THE SACRED SONG OF LIFE AND MORE LIFE

Redwoods are singing the song of life. Everything they do, they do for life and to generate more life. ‘Civilized’ humans seem to live life just to create death, suffering and more dying. Clear cutting forests is creating death on a global scale in so many ways.

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.
Hermann HesseBäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte

Growing foods on factory farms with carbon based chemicals is death creating. Factory farming animals is death creating. Patent drugs and medical readiation is death creating. Developing and using carbon and nuclear fuels is death creating. Developing and then using WMD, such as DU, nuclear bombs and agent orange is death creating.

Humans seem to be fixated on ‘saving life’ by destroying and killing it. Armageddon plus extinction of all life on the planet is the end result of worshiping at the alter of death, which has money at it’s root. Maybe it is time to look at how humans can create more sacred life as the redwoods do?

SACRED GROVES

A sacred grove or sacred woods are any grove of trees of special religious importance to a particular culture. Sacred groves were most prominent in the Ancient Near East and prehistoric Europe, but feature in various cultures throughout the world.

Earth Day Is Every Day – Honor And Respect Yourself, The Planet, All Living Beings
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/honor-and-respect-yourself-planet-all.html

Maybe it is time to search for and learn how to see not only the sacredness in redwoods, but also in every person on the planet. How can humans honor the sacred life that is within all living things and in humans as well?

“Even viewed conservatively, trees are worth far more than they cost to plant and maintain. The U.S. Forest Service’s Center for Urban Forest Research found a ten-degree difference between the cool of a shaded park in Tucson and the open Sonoran desert. A tree planted in the right place, the center estimates, reduces the demand for air conditioning and can save 100 kilowatt hours in annual electrical use, about 2 to 8 percent of total use. Strategically planted trees can also shelter homes from wind, and in cold weather they can reduce heating fuel costs by 10 to 12 percent. A million strategically planted trees, the center figures, can save $10 million in energy costs. And trees increase property values, as much as 1 percent for each mature tree. These savings are offset somewhat by the cost of planting and maintaining trees, but on balance, if we had to pay for the services that trees provide, we couldn’t afford them. Because trees offer their services in silence, and for free, we take them for granted.” 

WHERE CAN DIVINITY BE FOUND?

What is your definition of sacredness or divinity, around plants, animals, trees, birds, Nature, and people? Is there anything sacred, divine or mysterious inside of you, or in the world? Or can everything and everyone just be reduced to to being bought and sold? Can everything and everyone be coldly analyzed on a statistical spreadsheet and accounted for on a balance sheet that needs to show an ever increasing profit, no matter what?

In high school I came across a quote by St. Bernard: “What I know of the divine,” he says, “I learned in the woods.” This seemed like a modest improvement upon the Catholicism I was raised in. Little of this style of thinking ever proved useful to me, but I still recall the slides the forestry professor showed of an old-growth redwood stand in California. The lecture hall all at once felt more like a cathedral than a mausoleum, and those photographic images might just as well have been stained glass. The redwoods towered with their greenness and handsome branches, their crowns lost in a misty rustle among the coastal clouds. Later, when I finally made it to California, I learned that the birds of heaven, here called marble murrelets, nested in the lofty redwood boughs, and ten thousand mysteries were lodged in the fern-thickened shade of the forest floor. The professor said nothing of all this; his mind was elsewhere. “Hurry up and get out there and see these trees now,” he said. “All those senescent stands will be harvested within the next ten years. Even age rotations are what those timberlands need. Good forest management will take care of that.”

The aborigine culture found no need to cut down redwood trees or old growth trees anywhere in the world for profit. They used what Nature and redwoods provided at no cost, and without any charge, but no more than that. They lived in a sustainable way at the base of these huge eternal redwood beings, living in harmony with them, being supported by them and supporting them in turn.

These Indian tribes and sustainable cultures could not even imagine cutting these huge, eternal giants down and using them to build a global corporate empire. They could not imagine ‘owning’ a tree, much less the land, the water or the air, as corporations and many people do today. When one starts to think in terms of eternity, time and ‘ownership’, as well as profit, chopping down and killing huge eternal epoch giants is not even in the realm of possibility, because it is so artificial and contrived from a ‘taking’ egoistic and heartless point of view.

Terms such as time, space, money, property, profits and ownership have no meaning and no value in the world of redwoods and how they operate in the unseen and unexperienced dimensions that they inhabit and live in. These things were seen as a ‘disease’ by the American Indians, and that infection is now destroying the whole world and everything living in it.

When humans are considered from a redwood trees perspective, we are like ants, compared to humans. How would you feel if ants decided to cut you down and sell you for ant food or grind you up for ant toilet paper, just because they could, and you couldn’t stop them?

You live 100 years, and ants only live 1 month or less, but they think that they are entitled to take your life because need to build a larger store of ant food and get rich. Even this is a poor way to try and describe what a redwood tree thinks, feels and is trying to teach humans. Is anyone listening to them, as they try to teach ‘the eternal way’?

“I went to the springs while the sun was still up, and sitting on a rocky outcrop above the cave mouth I watched the light grow reddish across the misty pools, and listened to the troubled voice of the water. After a while I moved farther up the hill, where I could hear birds singing near and far in the silence of the trees. The presence of the trees was very strong…The big oaks stood so many, so massive in their other life, in their deep, rooted silence: the awe of them came on me, the religion.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Lavinia

IS ETERNAL LIFE POSSIBLE? 

Let’s assume that a redwood tree consists of two parts; an above ground part and an underground part. Much like a mushroom, the roots are where the most important part or essence of this ‘real’ ancient living being may really be located. These trees originally grew 160 million years ago. Humans have only been around for 50,000 years, but somehow, humans think they ‘know’ it all and are so sure of everything.

The above ground portion of this living being dies every 3,000 years, much like mushroom fruiting bodies grow above ground, but quickly die back. The roots underground continue to live, invisibly. Does mycelium really ever die, as long as it gets food in the form of decaying matter to live on?
https://mycotopia.net/topic/47753-the-nature-of-mycelium/

Let’s start with an assumption that the ‘tops’ of redwood beings have been sprouting back up, above ground, continually since 160 million years ago, until now.. How old is a mushroom? Do we count it’s age by what pops up above ground for brief periods that is designed mainly to spread spores? Or do we count a mushroom’s age by the mycelium fibers or ‘roots’ underground that live for many generations underground, invisibly? Does anyone really know how long these mycelium can live? In the same way, redwood root structures never die; they go on forever, living and getting nourishment from the above ground sprouts that pop up after the aboveground ‘tree’ portion is gone for whatever reason.

What would it feel like to live for not just 3,000 years, but for 160 million years? It is mysterious and awesome enough to live for 1,000 years before Christ ever walked this Earth, but it boggles the mind to consider a being living for 160 million years without dying. What would one learn? What would a being know and/or remember after being alive continuously for 160 million years? What evolution in awareness, perception and consciousness would be possible by living that long?

How long does a redwood tree have to live before we call that living eternally or forever? As far as humans, they live to 60 and at most 100 years compared to the 3,000+ years that the above ground portion of a redwood tree lives. The living being that a redwood tree is made up of lives on below ground forever, potentially for 160 million years. Humans have zero concept of what this means.

Humans have the arrogant belief that they have not only the right but the obligation to wipe out this majestic long lived species that so precious little is known about. Humans know almost nothing about the 10,000+ physical species nurtured and supported by mature redwood trees, but have no problem with killing them all. Because redwoods are tied into all living things on the planet, it is not just the redwoods and the 10,000 species around them that are being killed, it is also human beings that are going to be cut out of the web of life.

The blanket of life is made up of many threads, and humans are ripping up and cutting the web of life as it if means nothing, and is of no value unless money comes out of it somehow for them personally.

Humans know even less about the invisible dimensions that redwood trees have access to and the multi-dimensional beings that are supported by redwood trees. There are many invisible dimensions that tree farmers and profit takers know nothing about at all, which shamans work in, on a daily basis. There are  huge consequences to cutting down a mature redwood tree, which the profit takers know nothing about, but they will have to pay in ways they cannot even comprehend, much less imagine. Even using redwood tree products involves paying a price, just like the ones cutting them down.  

What can redwood trees teach humans who are willing to slow down and listen? First, because redwoods live eternally, outside of time and space as humans know it, they can teach humans how to do that as well, but only by sitting and being still, like a redwood. The mind is like the above ground portion of a redwood tree; it makes noise and generates things just as a visible tree does. But then there is the invisible below ground portion of the tree, silent, going deep, and seeing nourishment within. Ask the redwood to teach you about things outside of space and time, and it will. It lives there and has it’s being there. A redwood tree can teach about eternity, because it IS eternity. 

Humans are designed to seek out and access nourishment within, just like the roots of the redwood tree does, by going deep down inside. Humans can learn that they have access to an eternal life, just like redwoods do. Is is sad that most humans act as if eternity does not exist and that they are just dust which blows away when the human body drops and goes back to soil, like the above ground portion of the redwood tree.

Most humans are going down the wrong path so far, based largely on this mistaken belief that they consist of only the skin bag, which disappears completely after 50 to 100 years of ‘living’ an empty life based on profit and what can be ‘taken’ from Nature, and that if an eternal Heaven exists, it is separate from this life and will be accessed based on words alone. What if Heaven is not separate? What if Heaven is here and now and can be accessed within by getting still and quitting thinking, while surrendering to the larger forces and Nature’s laws, which are at work at all times?

THE LESSON REDWOODS TEACH HUMANITY IS ABOUT ETERNITY

Most humans care not, what happens to 7 future generations, much less 600 future generations. Do you believe that humans can access eternity? What does that word ‘eternity’ mean, if it is accessible in your life? In what way do you define eternity, or spirit, or soul, or eternal life? How does eternity show up in your life today?

Ask the redwoods, as they have may have an answer, suggestion, or healing for you. They are living beings who operate in worlds and dimensions that most humans have no conception about. 

Ask the redwoods. Write or journal about this. Meditate on it. Go on a sacred quest or a pilgrimage. Visit a sacred redwood grove and bring a sacred offering of a piece of Nature. Ask the redwoods a question. Ask for healing. Ask for more awareness or consciousness around this issue. Ask whatever you are led to ask them. The mature redwoods are there to answer, but to hear the answer you have to get very quiet and still, surrendering all that you think you know.

There are groups where you can learn to get still and go inside, such as the Quakers, who sit in silence and listen..

Maybe Anita Moorjani’s life can offer some insight into what is possible as far as eternal life, if you don’t believe that redwood trees offer humans anything of value, other than fiat money.

THE SECRET LIFE OF REDWOODS

Maybe it is time to come full circle and learn something from those who lived in harmony with Nature and redwoods for 40,000 years… Maybe it is time to connect with Nature and with redwoods on a deeper and much more mysterious level. 

Exploring the Inner and Outer Mysteries of Life
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/mystery.html

The old shamans who lived in the thickly wooded Pacific Northwest had a strong spiritual connection with trees, much like the druids had with the oak in Europe. Through an assortment of rituals and charms, the shaman used his or her tree as a spiritual helper to ascend into the sky and consult with various cosmic beings in order to gain news of the other world. Among the Salish people, one of the most powerful spiritual helpers was known as “Biggest Tree,” and it was reported to aid the shaman in obtaining special gifts made from cedar. These little gifts were in fact “alive” for those who had the power to perceive and use them. A similarly magical worldview lies at the very roots of the Great Western Tradition. In ancient Athens there was a religious sect known as the theoretikoi, who resorted to thick forests and quiet groves in order to conduct their meditative practices.
Maybe it is time to get quiet and listen to the redwood beings, who have lived for eons of time. Redwood beings get to keep the awareness of that, but humans have forgotten just about everything so they need reminding and remembering with the help of other beings of what is important, what is sacred, and what is mysterious, by the eternal redwood beings. What would it be worth, to consult with a being who lives outside of time and space as humans think that they know it?

The eternal redwoods can serve as a sort of ‘ladder’ that can be used to ascend into the other dimensions that Anita visited and came back from, by dying. Maybe these eternal redwoods have a much more sacred and important purpose than to be cut up and used for shingles, framing and matchsticks. Much higher quality more energy efficient homes can be built using straw bales, adobe and/or bamboo. There is no need to chop down redwoods for any reason.

One may as well dam for water tanks the people’s cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man.

Hopefully humans will learn some of the lessons that the redwood beings can teach, before it is too late. Maybe humans will start treating not only redwoods, but all of Nature as most sacred, most mysterious, instead of the opposite. Maybe then, humans will see themselves and each other as the most sacred, most mysterious, most divine beings, instead of the opposite.

Maybe someday soon, people all around the world will start to consider 600 future generations before making a business decision, instead of just thinking about short term profits and selfish interests. There is still hope, but time is growing very short, and the blanket of life is getting unraveled at a faster and faster pace, as more and more negative tipping points take effect.

The redwoods are waiting.  They are there, waiting, waiting, patiently waiting in eternity, to teach anyone who is willing to sit, be still and listen. Maybe patience and the enduring of tremendous suffering is another lesson that redwoods can teach humanity.
