Alert: Typhoons cause failure of ‘ice wall’ around Fukushima reactors — Highly radioactive water flowing into ocean — Structure “critically affected” — Fears over multiple sections of barrier that have thawed — Expert: “The plan to block groundwater is failing” (VIDEO)

Asahi Shimbun, Sep 2, 2016 (emphasis added): Typhoons cause ‘ice wall’ to melt at Fukushima nuclear plant — Rainfall from recent typhoons caused partial melting of the “ice wall” at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, allowing highly radioactive water to leak from around the damaged reactor buildings… [TEPCO] said melting occurred at two sections of the ice wall… TEPCO officials believe that during the latest typhoon, contaminated water from around the reactor buildings flowed through openings of the ice wall created by the deluge and reached downstream toward the sea… “If there had been an additional 15 cm of rain, (the contaminated water) could have poured out over the ground surface” and spilled into the sea, a TEPCO official said… The Meteorological Agency’s initial forecast said Typhoon No. 10 would bring a maximum 20 cm of rain a day at some locations in the Tohoku region… TEPCO admitted the underground wall of frozen dirt is not working. The company said the temperatures at the two sections of the frozen wall have climbed above zero since Typhoon No. 7 approached Fukushima Prefecture on Aug. 17. The company believes that the partial melting was caused by the influx of water brought by the typhoons and heavy rain in between.

NHK, Sep 1, 2016: Temperatures rose in parts of reactor ice wall — The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says due to recent heavy rain temperatures rose above zero degrees Celsius in some parts of an underground ice wall…

NHK, Sep 2, 2016: [TEPCO] says a series of storms have been dumping heavy rain in and around the plant since mid-August, pushing up temperatures in some sections of the ice wall. The utility says wall temperatures to the south of the No.4 reactor rose from minus 5 degrees to plus 1.8 degrees at the highest through Thursday. It adds wall temperatures to the east of the No.3 reactor also went up from minus 1.5 degrees to plus 1.4 degrees. Temperatures in these sections had been higher than others parts of the wall even before the storms. It’s feared that some ice in the sections may have melted as the rain increased groundwater flows.

Xinhua, Sep 2, 2016: “Ice wall” around Fukushima nuclear plant melts in 2 places following powerful typhoons — The frozen soil wall built around the crippled Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant have melted in two places following recent powerful typhoons… raising concerns over effect of the approach adopted by [TEPCO] to reduce the massive volume of radioactive water… [It] melted in two places following Powerful [Typhoon] Lionrock, the tenth of the season, battered the region… Groundwater flowing under the nuclear plant is leaking through the melted parts of the wall to outside and TEPCO is trying to refreeze the parts by injecting special chemicals to the wall, said the reports… The project was considered failed by some outside experts at an earlier meeting called by the Nuclear Regulation Authority…

Latin America Herald Tribune, Sep 2016: [TEPCO] Detects Increase in Temperature in Ice Wall in Fukushima[T]here are fears some sections of the wall could have thawed with the increase in underground water flow… This setback increases pressure on the company, that had barely made progress in bringing down the water still within the reactor basements…

Enformable, Sep 2, 2016: [TEPCO] has announced that the “ice wall”… has been critically affected by rainfall from recent typhoons that have melted parts of the ice structure, allowing new pathways for highly contaminated water to leak from the basements of the reactor buildings… [TEPCO] has had to admit that the $335 million wall of frozen soil and water is not working as designed. TEPCO announced that contaminated water was able to escape from the reactor buildings through the gaps in the ice wall that had melted from the rainfall and likely reached the Pacific Ocean… “The plan to block groundwater with a frozen wall of earth is failing. They need to come up with another solution, even if they keep going forward with the plant,” said Yoshinori Kitsutaka, a professor of engineering at Tokyo Metropolitan University.

Asahi Shimbun, Aug 19, 2016: Panel: TEPCO’s ‘ice wall’ failing at Fukushima nuclear plant – [TEPCO’s] “frozen wall of earth” has failed to prevent groundwater from entering the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, and the utility needs a new plan to address the problem, experts said. An expert panel with the Nuclear Regulation Authority received a report from TEPCO on the current state of the project on Aug. 18. The experts said the ice wall project, almost in its fifth month, has shown little or no success. “The plan to block groundwater with a frozen wall of earth is failing,” said panel member Yoshinori Kitsutaka, a professor of engineering at Tokyo Metropolitan University… The water becomes contaminated with radioactive materials within the reactor buildings. TEPCO’s plan was to create a frozen wall of earth around the reactor buildings to divert the groundwater away from the plant and into the ocean… But the amount of groundwater pumped from the ocean side of the frozen wall has shown little change from when there was no icy earth wall… [T]he readings above freezing were in areas with high levels of groundwater concentration…

    Sam, You may want to try adding Boron supplement (3mg are max. per day according to some Drs.) I take one every 3 or 4 days. Another is Selenium (not over 200 mcg per day), I take it everyday. Also taking Coconut Charcoal is good to take every so often.
    In Russia because of Cher. they banded food from the area, but Fuku is world wide- so a big problem. The Singapore government is now growing food indoors for their people. They know what is happening but don't say anything aloud or why to anyone else.

    Able came running to Trump to make sure the US will still suck up their food and fish exports. But notice Trump is smart enough not to go to Japan. In Ethiopia, there is a Brit with a large farm growing vegetables indoors under long buildings of plastic. The food is picked and shipped by plane to Djibouti and Saudi Arabia so it is only one day old when it hits the markets- the natives can't afford to buy it even though they work there.

    The only problem I find with growing it yourself is the water necessary also has Cesium in it from fallout…

      There waas a lot of info. in the Forum on lessening the impact of contamination in food, remediating soils, etc. That Forum isn't visible anymore, since the site was re-launched & re-designed in the past month or so. Will do a search and see if it's archived somewhere here.

      Vertical farming in Singapore, from "Permaculture News"

      More on the subject of Permaculture and controlling the waste stream:

      Permaculature and aquaponics appears to be the future of farming. It is excellent for areas where there is little aerable land (as in much of Asia). Farming in this type of "closed system" allows better control of inputs to the system (water, air, nutrients).

      It's challenging to control the inputs, but there is the potential for lessening the amount of radioactive contaminants entering the system.

      Tritium continues to be problematic. It's next to impossible and prohibitively expensive to filter Tritium out of the water supply.

        Will likely begin adding the zeolite again as it greatly reduced the number of mutations in our plants. (There were a lot of mutated tomatoes and carrots the first year after 3/11.) Someone suggested getting zeolite at a feed and farming supply store. Got the type used as a deodorizer for horse stalls. The pelleted form works great. I'd avoid the thick type, which clumps up like clay.

        Had added Sodium Borate and baking soda to our soils. It can burn plants, so one has to add it cautiously. These measures cut way down on mutations in plants, as mentioned.

        Marc Sircus, OMD, published an article about nebulizing Glutathione and Bicrabonate to combat the effects of inhaled radionuclides. Think it's probably a good idea to look into that.

        Here's a link to his article:

        We're definitely facing a HUGE challenge in trying to stay healthy in this very toxic world. Feeling pretty sad about all the animals and living things in the biosphere, unable to defend themselves against this toxic onslaught. And it's likely to get much, much worse as we continue to generate toxic nuclear waste and a host of other toxic substances.

        We have been such poor stewards.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          There is a LOT of information on the Web about the methods of remediation for soils, in articles and scholarly publications. A lot of research into this subject (remediating radioactive soils) was done after Chernobyl.

          Much of that was shared in the Forum on, "Combatting Radiation and Its Effects."

          • Dazy Dazy

            I've read that a lot of the contaminants end up in the mature plant's root soil ball so that should be disposed of as a hazard while the rest of the plant can be composted.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          Lastly, then I'll butt out for awhile, there are plants which will help remediate soils. Sunflowers will pull Cesium from soils. So will plants from the Mustard family. This was studied extensively after Chernobyl.

          The nagging question remains: what should be done with the plants which have taken up all the nasty toxins, once they are mature?

          Disposing of all this garbodge is an unsolved problem. What to do with all the used HEPA filters from one's home, the yard debris, etc.?

          We shouldn't have to ask ourselves these nagging questions, in the first place.

              Leubke, 1989 was the original study from Chernobyl. Will try to find the link again. _Acres_ magazine reprinted the Leubke study. Vol. 19, no. 12

              Source of the document (first link to Acres and composting, reference to Leubke):


              The article itself, link:


            • HoTaters HoTaters

              Leubke quote re: Professor Stoklasa, who wrote a book entitled, _The Biology of Radium and Uranium (see below). "Are we incapable of learning?"

              The pertinent discussion of soil remediation begins on the page after Leubke discusses Stoklasa's research.

              "To make my answer meaningful, let me give some background information. In my studies of research publications in the field of microbiology, I came
              across the work of Professor Stoklasa. After 25 years of observations and studies on the dispersion of radioactive materials in the atmosphere, in the lithosphere and the hydrosphere, in the air, in the water and in the soil, and their effect on the biochemi-
              cal life processes, he summarized his find-
              ings in his 1932 book, Biology of Radium and Uranium.

              Stoklasa lived in the CSSR and was head of the Federal Experimental Laboratories in Prague. He also was a member of the Scientific Committee of
              the Federal Radiologic Institute in Prague…."

              And this:

              Only by my accidentally measuring the levels of radioactivity before the reactor accident was I en-
              abled to make comparisons—likely I was
              the only person in the agricultural field to
              have done so…. Some (expert) recommendations were to shave the ground down to 30 cm of its top soil and to store the used-up soil in earth rows. I studied the American recommendations…."

                "On February 26 an-
                other official appeared at our farm and
                again took samples of the root vegetables
                still available. The vegetables were to be
                tested for cesium—Cs 134 and Cs 137—all
                in the wake of the Chernobyl accident. We
                still had potatoes, carrots, black garden
                radishes and red beets stored, and the of-
                ficial took one sample of each. Three weeks
                later he returned with the results: the pro-
                duce from our farm operation planted af-
                ter the nuclear accident was free of cesium
                and the official informed us that this con-
                stituted an exception….

                Parenthetically, I would like to add that
                the government agencies tested for cesium
                on a broad scale, but the results were not
                made public….

                In the fall—it was around Oc-
                tober, November—the food control police
                took samples of all the root vegetables.
                They sent them in for a cesium test. First
                they thought it was a mistake. They did
                it again and again, and they found no ce-
                sium. They could not prove that there was
                a Chernobyl accident by measuring our
                crops. We never did get an exact explana-
                tion, but we had a few ways of explaining
                it. We think the humus just ate up the ce-
                sium if the bacterial activity in the soil was
                good enough. In other words the plants
                can direct what they can use. We do not
                know if this has been scientifically proved…."

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                Leubke discussed adding biological organisms to compost.

                "We concluded that kalium [potassium] in the counting system had something to do with this. The plant uses up the cesium if it can’t get potassium. So if the activity of the bacteria is high enough, the plants can actually direct the delivery of kalium instead of cesium.

                ACRES U.S.A.
                So if you have the proper balance and enough life in the soil, plants can get the potassium from the soil system and bypass the cesium? Do you think that’s what happened?

                That’s what we think happened. The fellow who took the samples sent them to a testing laboratory in Vienna. At first they thought the measuring instrument was broken. They could not believe that something like this was possible.

                ACRES U.S.A.
                So in effect you’re saying that you have a plot of soil that is uniquely alive, and it is alive because of the preparations you use and the compost you use to build up humus?

                ACRES U.S.A.
                The real key to it, though, is how you make your preparations, and how you get the various microorganisms soil adapted?

                A very fast indirect test for the present microbial state of the soil is possible with chromatography as developed by Dr. Ehrenfried Pfeiffer. It is not a substitute for chemical analysis, but it allows for a very fast judgment of the overall condition
                of the soil.

                  The point of all of the above being certain organic farming methods, composting methods, and introduction of microoranisms in the composting process may reduce uptake of radiological soil contaminants.

                  Moonshell Blue posted some really good info. on soil remediation. Have it in my library here.

                  From her post:

                  "Plants break down or degrade organic pollutants and stabilize metal contaminants by acting as filters or traps. PHYTOTECH is conducting feild trials to improve the phytoextraction of lead, uranium, cesium-137, and strontium-90 from soils and also from water.

                  'Hemp is proving to be one of the best phyto-remediative plants we have been able to find,' said Slavik Dushenkov, a research scienst with PHYTOTECH. Test results have been promising and CGP, PHYOTECH and the Bast Institute plan full scale trials in the Chernobyl region in the spring of 1999.

                  This technique of hemp phytoremediation has applications that extend beyond nuclear accident cleanups. If prohibition on hemp farming were lifted and the industry were allowed to flourish, there could be thousands of new jobs created…."

                  Another good argument for legalizing industrial hemp in the U.S. A most useful plant.

                      Hippir, Dog, what do you mean by saying, "readings" should be associate with posts? Would you please be more specific? How can you tie quotes from someone else's studies with readings? 'Not sure I catch your drift at all.

                      Much of the posts above were quotes from other people. There were no numbers associated with the statements. One of the posts was from a quote from another person who used to post here on Enenews (MoonshellBlue). 'From a post made in 2011 or 2012.

                      Agreed re: we should try to add some numbers (objective findings) and post them when possible. If the institutions for higher learning and research laboratories will not publish findings with numbers, we'll have to do it ourselves.

                      Much of that effort is probably underway already. There have been a lot of posts here by people involved in those efforts.
                      Peat moss (as I've said here before) is very useful for remediating toxic spills. It might be useful for remediating radioactive contamination. That may have been what Leubke was alluding to when stating some of the humus in the soil may have captured the Cesium. (Probably mis-quoting, but please see the article and read for yourself.)

                      Hey, we have to begin somewhere. Hopefully people will build upon the findings of people like Leubke and PHYTOTECH. It would be interesting to read the PHYTOTECH findings.

                      Wondering if the PHYTOTECH study or studies have been concluded and published.

                    A reading is a term used to describe a count of (in this case) a click that represents 1 in what ever it is you are trying to detect (and protect).

                    In our case we refer to it as counts per min…

                    Or CPM (Stands for) disintegrations from heavy metal pollution in 60 seconds…

                    That would be 1 (or a detection) versus 0 (not detected)????

                    And the trick is to eliminate the "naturally occurring" detection when you test…

                    That's how we stop children from dying…

                    And our parents from enduring pain just to stay alive….


                • ""We concluded that kalium [potassium] in the counting system had something to do with this."

                  Damn right it does, plants, animals and people as biological organisms can tell (to some degree) the difference between pollution and natural vitamins and minerals.

                  The real problem occurs when you are deficient of a vital compound…

                  Then the organism will absorb the artificial compound in a attempt to nourish itself.

                  This is proven fact and has been known for years.

                  Think about KI tablets…..

                  Potassium to stop cesium and stable iodine to fill our bodies with the nutrient so it doesn't need the man made poison elements.

                  If a organism has enough of the real thing it won't scavenge for a substitute.

                  This is however a new food problem so supply and demand plus pricing makes this subject a secret for most farmers as well as conflicting reports that make this subject almost impossible for the general public to understand.

                  Truly clean food prices are at premium costs and are in short supply.

                  And hemp is a political issue…

                  So pure food and pure hemp are not health issues on any scale and never have been.

                  But if you use hemp for remediation some greedy person will try to sell it instead of sequestering it and it would defeat the purpose.

                  If our kids smoke it, it will result in lung cancers and birth defects on a grand scale so it's best to find something else to use.

                  But these principles are proven sound!!!!

                    Good info. on PHYTOTECH and industrial hemp:


                    Discusses remediation and cleanup of toxic trichloroethene at the Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Kentucky.

                    From the article:

                    "The plant was opened in 1952 as a government-owned, contractor-operated facility, producing enriched uranium to fuel military reactors and for use in nuclear weapons. The mode of enrichment was the gaseous diffusion of uranium hexaflouride to separate the lighter fissile isotope, U-235, from the heavier non-fissile isotope, U-238. The Paducah plant originally produced low-enriched uranium, which was further refined at Portsmouth and the K-25 plant at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. From the 1960s the Portsmouth and Paducah plants were dedicated to uranium enrichment for nuclear power plants. In 1984 the operating contract was assumed by Martin Marietta Energy Systems. Lockheed Martin has operated the plant since the merger of Martin Marietta with Lockheed in 1995. From 2001, all USEC production has been consolidated at Paducah.[2][3]"

                    Have the Stern book somewhere here at home. Will dig it out and see if there is mention in the book of soil remediation.

                    This is probably my strong suit, discussing bioremediation, as have been a UC Master Gardener in the past and have studied soil and water chemistry a bit over the years, in addition to my own experimental gardening projects.

                    Have been an avid student of organic gardening, composting, plant propogation for many years. Am tending about 20 trees germinated from seed. Since they aren't yet grafted onto root stock, many of them probably won't produce fruit any time soon.

                    Getting a gamma spectrometer and using it, posting findings would of course add credibility to the discussion. But w/o using a scientific method for assembling statistics, and developing a sound scientific model for study, any findings would still be considered more or less "anecdotal."

              And possibly the most important article of all, on soil phytoremediation after Chernobyl. From _Botany, Global Issues Map_


              "…Then a soil cleanup method was employed using green plants to remove toxins from the soil. This technique is phytoremediation, a term coined by Dr. Ilya Raskin of Rutgers University's Biotechnology Center for Agriculture and the Environment, who was a member of the original task force sent by the IAEA to examine food safety at the Chernobyl site….

              Today, many researchers, institutes, and companies are funding scientific efforts to test different plants' effectiveness at removing a wide range of contaminants. Raskin favors Brassica juncea and Brassica carinata, two members of the mustard family, for phytoremediation. In laboratory tests with metals loaded onto artificial soil (a mix of sand and vermiculite), these plants appeared to be the best at removing large quantities of chromium, lead, copper, and nickel….

              In February 1996, Phytotech, Inc., a Princeton, NJ-based company, reported that it had developed transgenic strains of sunflowers, Helianthus sp., that could remove as much as 95% of toxic contaminants in as little as 24 hours."

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                "Overall, phytoremediation has great potential for cleaning up toxic metals, pesticides, solvents, gasoline, and explosives. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more than 30,000 sites in the United States alone require hazardous waste treatment. Restoring these areas and their soil, as well as disposing of the wastes, are costly projects, but the costs are expected to be reduced drastically if plants provide the phytoremediation results everyone is hoping for."

          I suggest reading through Wikipedia's page on zeolite for reference as there are different types and grades of zeolites.

          Also take care not to inhale zeolite dust: 'Side Effects of Cellular Zeolite'

          Careful not to over do detoxification by any means as it can be hard on your liver and kidneys plus you could be depleting your body of needed minerals.

          As far as metal filings go, the mix for amalgam is bit different than in the past. Plastic fillings need to be checked and rechecked through the years as they wear down easier and leak at the margins. Better to leave the metal filings on any molars in place since they do the grinding and need a strong filing to pevebt syrface wear or maybe have a crown installed instead.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Will have to check on the info. on adding Boron (Sodium Borate?) to food. There was some discussion about its potential toxic effects on the liver or some other internal organ system.

      Forgot to mention have been on a periodic chelation protocol for the past five years. No mercury amalgams in my mouth any more. Also am very careful to avoid unnecessary EMF exposure, GMO's in food, non-organic food, anything else which can weaken the immune system. Keeping the immune system strong is vast subject in and of itself. Try to nourish the gut, and eat fermented and probiotic foods. Make fermented foods, sauerkraut, kefirs here at home.

      Take a lot of the supplements people have recommended here to support liver, kidney, spleen (blood filtering, toxin removing organs). It's very challenging and it's a lot of work.

      In the early days after 3/11 there was talk about Hawaiian dairy farmers adding Sodium Borate to cattle feed.

      Was putting Zeolite on my soil for a couple of years. Will likely do that again as we add clean fill to our yard, and plant our fruit trees, berries, etc. Will be looking into a lot more ways to remediate our soil and inputs.

      This may entail growing a lot of things in a greenhouse or some sort of closed system. It will be challening, as it's very hot where I live, during the Summer months.

      If it weren't for many people here (and that includes Anne when she was contributing), would have been clueless ….

        Post from a professional massage therapist suffering from chronic broncitis, who used Dr. Sircus' protocol for nebulizing reduced glutathione (at article, link posted above):

        "Dear Dr. Sircus,

        May I tell you that I have been nebulizing the glutathione with baking soda for my chronic bronchitis (I ordered the capsules) as mentioned in your Natural Allopathic E-book. I was astounded the first time I used it. I didn’t have any problems with coughing up a lot of mucus for a whole 24 hours. I am a massage therapist and this is very disconcerting. Thankfully I know all of my clients quite well and they understand my problem. I had a lot less discharge over the next few days after that. Today is good too. I took a couple of capsules orally. I will nebulize again later. I ordered the Glutathione from Dr. Brownstein also. He had the compounding pharmacy mix it up for me. The capsules with the baking soda seem to work best. I can’t tell you how many things I have tried and nothing has worked this well. Next I will try the clay to detox and cleanse my colon. "

        N. Goodfellow

        Reduced L-Glutathione Plus, which you can order at:

        Had inhaled some airborne, powdered baking soda I'd used, shortly after 3/11. There were massive airborne plumes. It seemed to buffer my lung tissue when I inhaled it & the pain in my chest. Chest hurt from inahling whatever was out there (hot particles?) after 3/11.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Dr. Sircus suggests the lungs may benefit from the nebulizer therapy using reduced glutathione and bicarbonate. If it helps improve the health of lung tissue, it might help the lungs combat the effects of radiation.

        Not making specific claims about this. But perhaps it can help the lungs to slow or halt a disease process caused by radiation exposure. Concerned about my own exposure here in California. But have been exposed since the days of atmospheric weapons testing. And have lived close to a couple of commercial and research (University) reactors in the past. Was born within two miles of where the Chicago Piles were buried. Guess I could be considered a guinea pig for the pro-nukers, should they choose to study me. (Oh, joy.)

        The jury will likely be out a long time on this one.

        Just know, speaking personally and only for myself, my right lung stopped hurting after I inhaled the airborne bicarbonate (baking soda). The only time it has hurt since then is when there is heavy air pollution in my area, along with high airborne radiation levels. As measured on NETC, as CPM counts measured on a GMC-320, and Gamma counts (CPM of Gamma in energy range 600-800keV).

      Activated charcoal, edible charcoal is VERY useful for removing toxins from the body. Also helpful for people who have had mold exposure, and may harbor mycotoxins in their systems.

      Yes, the candidates were not ideal. Concerned about P/Act tactics on steroids in the future. Both put forward would likely be moving us in that direction. The politics of fear are very destructive.

    'Ruthlessness' Gene Gone Wild

    The Takers:

    Greed (corruption) and avarice are not commonly held by all men

    Imagine a world that has abundant natural resources and a limited human population. The “ruthlessness” gene however exists, primarily in one particular segment of the population. This group practices compassion and ruthlessness, but not in equal measures. They survive primarily by simply taking what they need from everyone else.

    The takers believe that ownership gives them power and control and by claiming ownership of the land, they can also claim ownership of all the natural resources. And by “all”, I mean ALL, this includes the soil, water, rock, air, plants, animals and even the other human beings who live on the lands that they claim “ownership” over.

    The “ruthlessness gene” of takers prevailed on this world, it gained both ownership and control of all the land and human populations, AND it gave them the technological superiority to ensure that they would be able to stay in charge for as long as possible.

    CEO's of major corporations, or movie stars or bankers, lawyers, doctors or athletes. Their competitive “spirit” was adopted by cultural ingraining from birth, something created by the ruthless people, and their own sons and daughters, the same genetic makeup as them, also became a part of this competetive “success”.


    • GOM GOM


      This oft-repeated cycle of birth and death replicated itself for generation upon generation. The ruthless gene of course, still existed, intermixing with much of the population through marriage and birth, but it was not found in all humans on this world. Not everyone became polluted. Some who possessed such a gene became the truly notable humans of their era. Dictatorships and even Presidents, Vice Presidents and Secretary of State were titles often held by such people. Their ruthlessness gene helped ensure their success to these high levels of office. Even those that sought such positions could safely be said to possess the ruthless gene. Many if not most of corporations that developed as ownership of resources and lands took control of the planet were run by owners and CEO’s that had the ruthlessness gene.

      The rest of the human population became their slaves, even those who also had the ruthless gene, as monetary systems were enacted to ensure that there would never be enough money to go around and create fair and equal opportunity for the planet’s population. Ownership became “essential” and buying and selling of goods, products, production, resources and even people, became the only way in which all humans on the planet could possibly survive.


      • GOM GOM


        Every square inch of the planet was divided up into tiny squares and slices of ownership pie, somebody owned it, no matter where it might be found, even in the most remote corners of the globe. And whatever was on it, whether natural, man-made or plant or animal life or even human life, was also owned and controlled by someone who we could be equally sure was of the 'ruthless gene'.

        There is really was no place of escape from this. What was once an idyllic paradise of existence for all living creatures, both human and non-human, is now a hellish prison of caged confines and ruthless masters who control and “own” everything, even the natural things.

        The level of control over the planet become extreme, as even more technological inventions created tighter and tighter control mechanisms by the ruthless and those that cooperated with them.

        The environment itself was irrevocably changed as all of this “industry” by the ruthless humans and those that cooperated with them created huge plumes of pollution in the air, soil and water. It wasn’t long before this pollution seriously affected the entire food chain and many new human diseases and sicknesses took over, killing millions and millions yearly. This was strangely often labeled “the price of progress”. Industry” continues to claim ownership of all things on the planet.


        • GOM GOM


          In time, their industry including their war/nuclear industry, has gained control and ownership of absolutely everything on the planet, but in the process, they had polluted and destroyed everything they touched. Some areas would be radioactive for ten thousand years or more. Others were so badly damaged that absolutely nothing would grow, being scoured right down to the subsurface of the soil and dumped with abandon everywhere.

          Even the air, soil and water was deeply polluted, but this still didn’t stop them. The ruthless people remained arrogant and callous and utterly indifferent to the damage they were causing. A characteristic of the ruthless was to abandon reason and common sense, it did not matter to them that life itself came from the health of the environment and not its ongoing and continued destruction. They deemed ownership, power and control, the things of “wealth” much more important then the things of life. Our life.

          The planet itself began to reel like a drunken man, stumbling and falling as its natural cycles and rhythms were distorted or interrupted by all the human activity. And just in time too, as natural resources essential for all life on the planet were in severe depletion and ecosystems were collapsing all over the planet.


          • GOM GOM


            In desperation, the ruthless people tried to invent even more technological inventions to “save the planet”, which really meant that they were only trying to save themselves and their positions on top of the human heap of slaves they had created.

            But it didn’t work. The world began to collapse and implode in upon itself. Entire ecosystems collapsed and the essential food chain for humans and animals all collapsed with it. This caused massive, irreversible famines and starvation and billions died. The most affected were the slaves, since they were impoverished and unable to take care of themselves, having long forgotten the essential skills and techniques essential for life, they died out quickly by the billions.

            This environmental adjustment would take thousands of years to settle out again and in the process, it would kill most of the humans on the surface.

            There is no changing this, nor even controlling this. The human history as exemplified by the ruthlessness gene is no different. The rise and fall of our existence is no more controllable then our efforts to control the planet, or the moon and the stars.

            We live in rhythms and cycles, seasons of existence and seasons of life, death, famine, disease. Our adaption to these things is the only thing we can “do”. Our desperate attempts to avoid these things are denials of reality.

            For Sol Man

            • Sol Man

              Your points are eloquently stated. My attempt to avoid certain things is my denial of reality that has been rather difficult, at best.

    China: The Third Pole. Tibet & Fukushima?

    Personally, I have never heard of what is referenced as 'the 3rd pole'. Maybe that is due to the nuclear industry. After all, Tibet is hardly noticed right? What if I told you, and showed you, a recent study proving that Fukushima radiation reached, and planted itself in Tibet? In 20 days. And that's not all. Ice cores prove that earlier nuclear testing ended up there also. But the focus is Fukushima.

    The undeniable buildup from Fukushima radiation is in the ice.

    If you're still interested, this site {PubMed}is dedicated to Fukushima & Chernobyl fallout deposition.

    Fukushima Nuclear Accident Recorded in Tibetan Plateau Snow Pits


    An overview of Fukushima radionuclides measured in the northern hemisphere.


    The majority of the releases occurred during the period March 12-22 with a maximum release phase from March 14-17, 2011. The radioactivity released was dominated by volatile fission products including isotopes of the noble gases (xenon and krypton), iodine, cesium, and tellurium. The radioactive gases and particles released in the accident were dispersed over the middle latitudes of the entire northern hemisphere and for the first time also measured in the southern Hemisphere.

    Isotopes of iodine and cesium were detected in air, water, milk and food samples collected across the entire northern hemisphere. Elevated levels of fission products were detected from March to May 2011 at many locations over the northern hemisphere.

    'Disclaimer' added to bottom of report most likely to avoid trouble:

    It is important to note that all of the radiation levels detected outside of Japan have been very low and are well below any level of public and environmental hazard. After all, who writes a damming report then says this shit?

    We must now tread carefully when presenting ANY form of truth.

    Am a single mum with two kids to take care of. My name is Linda,am from Canada.for the pass 7 months I have been in a financial mess, A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine told me about how Mr Steve Wayne helped her by granting her a loan with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule. She also told me they can help me out of my financial crisis too. I never believed her,because I have been to different Banks/private loan lenders who could not help me due to my poor credit scores. She advised me,and I give a try, so I mailed them via Email(, and explained all about my financial situation to them, they took me through the loan process and granted me a loan of $250,000USD on 15th of November as I have applied for,and today I have a business of my own which I’m proud of and I can as also take care of my kids bills and some other things as well. all i did was to follow the terms and condition's of the loan. I’m so happy I did. I’m sharing this today because I care about you all, I known how it feels to be in a financial mess,and i don't want anyone to fall in the hand of those fake lenders,who claims to be genuine, I can never stop thanking them for their help.because Mr Steve Wayne Loan Company really showed me light when others abandoned me, I’ll keep telling the world about their kindness in my life, If you must contact any private lender,i will advice you to kindly contact Mr Steve Wayne for your loan,Thank you all
