Seattle Times (AP), Craig Welch, July 24, 2014: Once-common marine birds disappearing from our coast […] a significant ecological shift in our region — a major decline in once-abundant marine birds. […] the number of everyday marine birds here has plummeted dramatically in recent decades. […] several new studies now also link many dwindling marine bird populations to what they eat — especially herring, anchovies, sand lance […] Some forage-fish species, such as herring, are a fraction of what they once were. […] There’s certainly no shortage of crashes […] “It’s one thing to have a rare species decline,” said Joe Gaydos, with the SeaDoc Society. “[…] We’re talking about big, common species, and a lot of them.” […] it wasn’t clear whether this was a local or continental- scale problem, said Scott Wilson, a biologist with Environment Canada. It’s both: Up and down the West Coast, the winter breeding population [of Western grebes] is half what it was in 1975. […] since 1970 [Puget Sound’s biggest] herring stock has crashed, with more than 90 percent of the population all but gone. […] some scientists believe the herring problem itself may be far worse than others acknowledge. […] Wayne Landis, at Western Washington University […] found that while Puget Sound herring used to live eight to 10 years, they now survive only to age 3 or 4. […] “They don’t get old anymore,” he said. That could be the result of disease or toxic contamination or other changes […] Usually after a bust, herring eventually recolonize, Landis said. The question now: Is this bust different […] “Something’s happening on a big level,” [Gaydos] said. “But what is it?”

          Dr Goodheart, thanks for posting this. For some reason the "Comments" button in the low level radiation forum-thread has been disabled. No one can post there right now. Have been trying to alert ADMIN for a week.

            Also the petitions forum-thread comments button has been disabled. No one can post there right now, suspiciously just before the EPA deadline of August 3. Weird goings-on here at enenews. Has anyone else noticed anything strange about how the site is operating at all?

              No, not from Windham County, Vermont; on a cable system; seems to be working for me, here;

              sorry you're having problems; probably some Big Nuke tinkerin'; these boys play for keeps and don't miss a beat;

              I'm wondering how exactly a legal action could proceed; security needs during time of war and energy independence-with-nuclear crap;

              They are rolling in money and have decided to go whole hog with it: buying votes; corrupting Congress; destroying careers; giving copious amounts of cancer to the likes of us, here on this site; gloating, with their "six figs" of income that "they like what it buys them;" blood money; cancer money;

              We, SHEEPLE, breathe in their poisons; because we have no choice; we suck down their lies, their Propaganda: their little brown eyed girl whose Mama makes "trains that are friends with trees … My mom makes underwater windmills that are powered by the moon" mind-numbingly persistent Propaganda from GE; trying to sanitize their image;

              GE: the foul wreaker of death and destruction with their corporate profit agenda; no better than JP Morgan's insurance scam with the sinking of Titanic (Olympic) (the loss of life was a mistake, for Captain Lord on the rescue ship, the California, was given a wrong position from Titanic's navigator at the end; California lay twenty miles distant from the doomed Liner, not the eight or ten, as had been the plan; and Titanic's (Olympic's) rockets were never seen by Lord's crew.)

        And the bio accumulation in humans? I don't really want to know. Every week I have an infusion of human immune globulin to keep my neuropathy in check. It comes from plasma clinics. The people who give blood there are significantly homeless living outdoors.

        This could turn out to be an end of life event. Hell it already is for many species. And we are at the top. But we may starve before we die of cancers as the food chain collapses.

        All the lies have done is delay the collapse of Japan's economy which was fragile enough already. It will still happen though. And when it does it won't be contained to the far east.

        There at least should be some poignant art and music birthed from this nuclear stupidity as humanity suffers and dies……

        • Most people don't want to know.. because the truth hurts, creates uncomfortable feelings that people don't know to do with. What to do with the guilt and shame that knowing the truth creates, because we are all part of the problem? None of this is being dealt with, so it is all swept under the rug, or into the ocean..

          Bury the truth, deny it, long live the nuclear industry. Let's build 4,000 more nuclear plants… solar, wind, tides, water, is all dangerous, toxic, and unreliable… (sarcasm)

          Learning to see and wake up is not always a 'pleasant' feel good thing.. Reality sucks on some levels. Take the red pill anyway. Learn to see beyond the pain…

          Create your own green road so that others may follow you, down the path less traveled.

            That is the spirit Dr. G!!! Thank you for all you do …

            Let's see … "something is happening on a big scale … but what is it???"

            Really? Is he serious??

            Don't ask ol' Potbelly, Jeff Immelt. He wont't tell you.

            Couldn't be the radiation from three uncontrolled core melts … now could it?

            Here is an infamous quote from my current selection from the New England Coalition on Nuclear Pollution library, "The Nuclear Power Controversy" ed. Arthur Murphy, from 1976, pub. The American Assembly, Columbia University (where Fermi put his first atomic piles together, in 1942 …

            This is pre-TMI material, right after Rasmussen produced his "Bullshit for Hire" Reactor Safety Study at MIT (1975) and when plutonium recycle was still on the table. The authors, David Bodansky and Fred H. Schmidt, both in favor of developing the nuclear option for base load power; insisting that the only alternative was coal; so went the lie; musing on the problems with public perception about the safety of nuclear power plants:

            "We expect it will take decades of safe operation before all the doubts wither. In the meantime, perhaps some consolation can be taken from the fact that even in the extremely unlikely event of a major accident, it does not seem likely to be a catastrophe of unparalleled dimensions." (p.54)

            Major Fail!!

            Such was the bogus logic of the deluded, psychopathic nuclear boosters, at the time.

            Where are these assholes now?

                Thats where you and I differ.

                Where you are certain they all died from nuclear related cancers, I am not so arrogant in my beliefs.

                Still, you are pro-choice and look the other way to abortion.

              My only difference with people here is that they over-exaggerate the effects of nuclear energy.

              When 20,000,000 die of pollution every year, and there are maybe at best 1000 statistical "liqiuidators" (virtual people) who is quibbling?

              I think people here fancy themselves as nuclear scientists when they really are not, and listing to antinuclear scientists who have an agenda.

              I think the denial is there because if the human mind expands far enough to take in the full ecological and time dimensions of this utter catastrophe, the flame of consciousness begins to burn at the edges. If the mind expands that far, it bumps up against such a tremendous pain that it is intolerable. As soon as the pain becomes intolerable the mind retreats from understanding the vast consequences of this utter catastrophe. Those in authority who are complicit in this denial of Fukushima specifically, and the effects of low level radiation more generally, are in some regard protecting human psyches from extraordinarily disturbing and painful information, perhaps the most painful and disturbing that humanity or any other species has yet received. I am not excusing them, I am just trying to understand the basis of the denial. Money, yes. Power, yes. Ignorance. yes. Multi-million dollar propaganda, yes. Self-inflicted permanent wounding of the DNA of all species? No, not so much. It doesn't make sense. The refusal of authorities and decision-makers to act and speak out powerfully in the face of the ongoing catastrophe of the past 70 years of the nuclear age is, at some level, entirely baffling to me. Entirely.

              • nedlifromvermont

                @Arizonan: baffling, yes … but understandable, too;

                Imagine this: A nation of fairly normal, literate, technologically advanced people, is whipped up into a frenzy – by a hideous yet brilliant Propaganda campaign that blames everyone's problems on a tiny ethnic minority, so that this minority is then exterminated in industrial-designed and fired ovens … sound baffling to you??? It happened … and it belies the power of Propaganda, or outright lies, given to you wholesale by a central State-financed propaganda operation.

                This is the exact same situation we have with nuclear power here, now, in 2014 Amerika, USA, Global Hegemon, ISIS Fighter of last resort, or whatever you want to call our paranoid and toxic, drunk with money and power, dysfunctional capitalist Leviathon of a nation, which we used to love and honor;

                Game almost over … if we don't throw off the scales of the nuclear lies … we are under the thrall of nuclear power … it is the one all-consuming evil which CAN poison the entire planet, as indeed it already has.

                Our resident MOFOTROLL cannot explain away a continuously rising background radiation insult to all of us coming from his well-paying (with blood money) industry's leaking monstrosities, globally … he glibly squeals about his big blood money pay check … and even calls us baby killers for supporting abortion rights …

                he's downright audacious … but then people who take blood money are that way …

    I really wonder what's happening. Hadn't seen a bluejay bird in 20+ years, now suddenly we have them and a lot of other birds we haven't seen in ages. All I can remember is everywhere in this metro suburban areas there were lots of hawks, owls, and vultures ( coyotes too). At any time you could see a hawk circling, just look up. I suspected they were responsible for the bird decline, ive seen a hawk take a grown bluejay before. Suddenly I don't see any birds of prey! Apex predators, hmmm. I wonder if there has been an influx of birds from surrounding states due to drought etc. and a decline in prey birds due to accumulation of… Hmmm?

      The bio-concentration factor in fish that eat other fish is probably about 3000X for Cs-137 in the meat, and for Sr-90 the factor is probably about 3400X for meat and 63,000X for bones, and the marine birds like pelicans eat the entire fish with the bones. So they are getting hit with some gammas and betas.

        And I did kind of enjoy those crunchy vertebrae in my creamed salmon on toast. I know a few people who would travel to Alaska for the Salmon harvest to work in the canneries for the summer. That gig will be over soon. And I hope The State of Alaska along with B.C. is working on plans to help their indigenous populations cope with the loss of a major food source. But to make that highly appropriate move government would have to a admit there is a problem.

            And pretty much the reason nuclear is even discussed. Global warming is mainly a fossil-fuel driven effect.

            Yes you get CO2 from the nuclear enterprise, as with any enterprise. However its still about 1/300th that of coal. Even mining solar materials puts CO2 in the atmosphere.

                I got it the first day I studied the potential Bodega Bay nuclear project for a high school class project back in the 70s. It lead me to learn more about nuclear technology and I made it my life's work. BTW, the Bodega Bay site was scrapped for another site – Diablo Canyon.

                • nedlifromvermont

                  Wrong.

                  Bodega Bay was scrapped in favor of a site in Mendocino County, with bogus assurances given about the local site geology, like at Bodega. The Mendocino site was abandoned for seismic risk in 1972. They built a smallish, now closed facility at Humboldt Bay, which was also shut down for seismic risk. And then they committed to Diablo Canyon, the fourth attempt in an unbroken string of bad decisions, after lying about and covering up bad site geology there for several years. Diablo Canyon won out, of course, with the hundreds of millions of dollars invested stupidly, by greedy corporate bastards like your own MFX self.

                  Somebody high up at PG&E must have been getting some pretty good head, courtesy of the chief nuclear pimp, General Electric Company!

                Why are you doing this? I suspect people like yourself are starting to feel very threatened by the truth that is getting harder to ignore. When the shit hits the fan, people like you disappear, back under the rocks that you came from. You're a corporate boot licker who would do anything and say anything just for a buck, even threaten the health and safety of your own family. Truly despicable.

        @ Old Fool: "but what could it be?"

        It is not allowed to be the radioactive releases.

        That is simply not allowed to be!!

        The truth is not allowed to be … for it may contain the harmful rumor!!!

          For any marine bird eating and digesting the entire fish and fish bones, it is probably the Sr-90 with the 63,000X bio-concentration factor in the fish bones that will kill the birds before the Cs-137 builds up and does it.

            The bio-concentration factors came from the US government's Savannah River studies. The factors for saltwater fish are probably in the same range as for the river fish that were scientifically studied.

                      Aug 3 is the last day for posting EPA comments about raising the level of allowable radiation levels.

                      When people suggest that one is supposed to ignore his comments, I don't know what is happening to this website.

                      In the past Admin deleted any comments they didn't like. If MFX were really banned, all his comments could be deleted.

                      There are many threads where no comments are any longer possible. Even the general discussion of nuclear topics is no longer workable because there is not even a pathway from the comment section to the correct page of the item posted.

                      So, as I understand, MFX can post anything horrible, insulting, slanderous, and no one is supposed to answer his comments. So is this any longer a blog, or is it now a pro-Nuke diatribe where no one can even any longer defend themselves?

            • There is a similar study done showing the bioacculation ratios of Hanford's radioactivity in ducks, their diet and their eggs.

              The Columbia River ecosystem is forever ruined by supposedly safe radioactive low levels of seepage from acres of corroding barrels buried there. Nuclear waste….relentless ongoing disintegration of underground "containment".

            and so it really was the strontium damage that caused them to stop the atmospheric testing …

            and thus it is the strontium that they barely test for, that they know will do the real damage, the leukemias – the blood cancers …

        Oh and to top it off we had a tornado a mile from my home this morning , virtually unheard of in these parts and about fifty miles north we had very high rad levels in concord nh yesterday .

        Is there a connection ??

        • Time Is Short Time Is Short

          The tornadoes stir up all the radiation that has fallen on the ground, sending it back up into the atmosphere for further distribution.

          30 years ago this would be a coincidence (heavy radiation contamination/strange, unusual weather), but now . . .

  • I have read through the articles listed above.

    Nowhere, I repeat, NOWHERE, are the words RADIATION, FALLOUT or Fukushima MELTDOWNS mentioned. 😯

    For anyone to believe, for single second, that the ongoing out of control meltdowns with no end in sight (x3) have not affected birds (living things) either directly or indirectly is living in denial of an insidious global reality.

    For it not to be mentioned, by authors who 'claim' to be environmental journalists such as KCET's Chris Clarke, is a travesty against humanity. It plays into the future robbing crime called Nuclear Power that has now spanned over 60 years.

                      Hi WW, re: the MF troll, you said, "some people are answering him. What of the visitors swayed by his arguments? All they see are postings to ignore this individual; it might leave a bad impression. What are your thoughts on this?"

                      People here respond or not as they feel appropriate, given the type and content of the troll's comments.

                      Many of it's posts are simply vulgar personal attacks, baiting by making controversial off-topics designed to push someone's "hot buttons", or taunting boasts about his (inflated) capabilities or that of it's pro-nuke "side". These are easily dismissed or ignored, but they do seem to be increasingly shrill or abusive.

                      Sometimes the troll asserts a fact or opinion that might actually be argued. Yet he rarely posts any evidence to back-up his assertions, so it makes it hard to address other than to point out the lack of evidence or weakness of the troll's position. Still, if there's an assertion made by the troll that could be considered plausible, there are several very knowledgeable 'Newsers that will respond, provide evidence and argue their position on the matter, and possibly educate others in the process.

                      Responding (or not) to this troll is a matter of personal preferences and context. History and evidence suggests that this troll's goals are to unproductively engage 'Newsers and disrupt this site. Any 'Newser response will prompt additional responses from the troll, thereby meeting his goals.

    Seals NEVER tested for the major radiation nuclides, probably no other animals tested either. Has anyone gotten the U of Alaska to FINISH analysis of the sick animals they were asked to test for radiation in 2012? The last I heard, the U of A said they DID NOT HAVE THE EQUIPMENT necessary for this kind of testing. They only said the NORMAL looking seals were not sick!!! And the poor Utah eagles..anyone testing those birds. Well..it was mentioned they were testing..but we never see the results..Data is important!! REAL data, tests.

    Anyone doing the tests for PU/AM/Cesium and the host of other poisons coming from Fukushima? Wish a valid researcher, not a troll, with REAL data from REAL tests would post the URL.

    • Lots of promises and assurances, plus empty guarantees, but very close to ZERO coming back.. total silence and no specific test results along with equipment used, specific radiation readings, etc.

      Driving it all to zero testing, zero information.

    • MFX 1209

      The actinide concentration from Fukushima in the air, land and sea, is so dilute compared with the massive atmosphere, oceans, and land masses.

      Ive seen rapid technology breakthroughs in radiation detection, down to the femtoCurie level.

      FemtoCurie is 1e-15 Curies. Thats very very small. Yet it exists.

        Twit MFX: Get this: Chronic, low level exposure to ionizing radiation is cummulative and deleterious. The "Petkau Effect" suggests that chronic exposure to low level radiation may be more damaging then a one-off acute exposure … to many life forms … especially trees. You probably think trees are unimportant. They happen to clean the atmosphere and provide breathable O2. But you are a nuclear "numbers guy," so you probably failed or have no interest in biology. Health physics my ass!

        • MFX 1209

          Poor deluded soul.

          The Petkau Effect is the sign of a weak science base. Petkau never included the effects of the human immune system. He did all his work in a petri dish.

        Interesting take TIS. I will agree that the poor people around me seem to understand the damage that has been done.

        Interesting word choice, "altruistic." In the 1977 Ralph Nader book "The Menace of Nuclear Energy" a GE CEO from the early 70's is quoted as saying, in an annual report, "Our motives regarding nuclear power are not entirely altruistic. As a company we can book six time the profits on the sales of a nuclear plant compared to a normal fossil fuel thermal energy plant, since we control the design, the construction, the fuel service, and the maintenance …"

        Dirty rotten bastard. GE can go to hell, with their patron, J.P. Morgan.

        Ned Coffin, my great uncle, Harvard Class of 1897, GE founder Charles Albert Coffin's only son, who died young while working for his dad's company, in Kansas City, of Peritonitis, and for whom I'm named, would have said, "No!" to Nuclear Power … or at least I like to think so …

  • Socrates

    The magnetosphere around earth is weakening at a faster pace than previously thought. A pole shift is underway. That means more radiation from cosmic rays and particles from earth. Aviation probably ruins the ozone layer. Above-ground testing and nuclear power have increased background. Then we have increased earthquakes along the Pacific ring of fire. The Sun's activity is decreased but the core of the earth is interacting with with the crust, releasing methane gases through fissures. Oceans are polluted with pesticides and fertilizers. We have acidification. Deepsea drilling release huge amounts of NORM – check that source of radiation. Coal plants, methane released by cattle, looks like a perfect storm – overfishing and other tampering with the environment effect the marine food chain. One effect magnifies another.

    Mankind may not be entirely to blame. Maybe we are destined to experience a mass extinction event before we can do ourselves in with a nuclear war. Events underway in our galaxy and solar system may have determined some of these changes.

    The necessity of protection by the magnetosphere will result in 2 -8 new magnetic poles, one or more around the equator. Earth wobble, etc. are also negative factors.

    I have seen no pelicans this Summer. I see some bees, fewer each year, relatively sterile tide pools. Fewer birds. On it goes…. more people, of course.

      The increase in toxic algae species in the oceans is said to be caused by climate change. Kill-offs of plankton and overgrowth of toxic species kills of the herring and anchovies… bioaccululation of radionuclides, release of radioactive iodine at Fukushima hurts the ozone layer since iodine is a halogen.

      • massive radiation contamination of the oceans (add in chemtrails) drasticlaly changes the chemistry of the water (besides giving critters radiation illness) causing oxygen depletion, bacterial infections, algae growth and on and on….

Horses were the size of dogs, and dogs stood 7 feet at the shoulder. Camels and saber-toothed cats roamed, between eruptions, which can be seen by compressed layers of volcanic tuft, a chalky white substance that compresses down to several inches thick from ten feet or more. Digging these fossils out, gives one the idea that climate changes and that life forms are very temporary over a million years or more. Some changes have come abruptly. There is much that science is just now discovering about the tectonic plates, isostatic readjustment, and earth-sun and other gravitational changes where Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun affect the earth. The core of the earth is dynamic. We are seeing reflections in the mantle and crust, and everything from wobble to the weakening of magnetosphere. These changes are noted at high altitudes in changes in the jet stream. Really humbling. .. yet even more reasons for not changing the balance of nature for the worst. We should all work together rather that trying to conquer what might be a dying planet.

            Thank you for this comment. Fukushima Daiichi is an unfolding horror story, but it is undoubtedly true that the forces beyond our control are immensely, almost unimaginably power. I can see in my mind's eye the televised images of large, burning houses carried inland on the tsunami to this day. The video records of that day are emotionally overwhelming, and changed my way of thinking. Apropos nuclear power, the message is clear to anyone with the capacity to think honestly: forces of nature are so immense that NPPs cannot be made safe enough to operate. Humanity has an enormous challenge to survive even without them. With them, our chances are greatly diminished.

              Socrates has mentioned the inevitable with fukushima before too, this man is very smart but he sees other issues at hand, he's a very well liked lawyer and a very likable foe unlike mfx. . If nature works itself out fukushima and nuclear plants are still the #1 worry even if Russia busts out an all out war. Enjoy life now.

    • We Not They Finally

      There is also likely something happening called "crustal displacement." That the Earth's crust itself, at least in the northern hemisphere, is slipping a few degrees further south. Which is apparently prat of why the Sun in Spring in Greenland started rising two days early for the first time. There is also a youtube from someone with a compass who clocked the shifts out, and deduced crustal disaplacement. And crops previously grown in more southern latitudes can now be planted further north. Freaky.

      I do astrology, which may mean nothing to others, except that suddenly readings started being a year and a half off mathematically. I can't read unless I re-set charts to a more southern latitude. It was so strange, that I started researching why!

      Of course, the poor animals don't have internet and cannot even have a clue what hits them — it's just by instinct and bad things happen to them.

      There seem to be several disruptive changes happening at once. And geoengineering is a TERRIBLE contributor! See Dane Wigington on that. He's the best.

      • The Eskimos reported that this happened right after Fukushima earthquake.. sun started rising and setting in a different place and time..

        • yeppers, I saw the same displacement as did a friend of mine in Costa Rica after I told him – he said, oh, wow, the sun is on a different tracking line now (based on his 15 years in that location all year around) – earth's axis shifted some and that has been acknowledged by the magnetic pole researchers. A natural evolutionary geologic event. But, pushed a little more by extraordinary events.

      • Socrates

        Correct. NASA has some websites that contain excellent photos, videos and explanations of these changes in the crust. The Goddard Center is considered to be too focused on just anthropomorphic climate change. The NASA astrophysicists at JPL, Cal tech, and by means of thirty years of studies by three major satellites studying gravitational effects, have revealed much new information. CO2 is not our only problem, unfortunately, because, if it were, it can be changed, at least theoretically. It looks like there are other complex factors at work. The crust is slipping. A wobble could create waves one mile high, for example. This is not my field…. but the information is getting out there, if you try to understand it.

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      RoundUp is killing the bees as fast as the radiation is. In fact, there is a lot of RoundUp in the food we eat, and it's killing the good bacteria in our guts.

    "Welcome to the new age"

    A song I heard this weekend touched me…

    Radioactive by the Imagine Dragons..

    I’m waking up to ash and dust
    I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
    I’m breathing in the chemicals

    I’m breaking in, shaping up
    Then checking out on the prison bus
    This is it, the apocalypse

    I’m waking up

    I feel it in my bones
    Enough to make my systems blow
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age

    I’m radioactive, radioactive
    I’m radioactive, radioactive

    I raise my flags, don my clothes
    It’s a revolution, I suppose
    We’re painted red to fit right in

    I’m breaking in, shaping up
    Then checking out on the prison bus
    This is it, the apocalypse

    I’m waking up

    I feel it in my bones
    Enough to make my systems blow
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age

    I’m radioactive, radioactive
    I’m radioactive, radioactive

    All systems go
The sun hasn’t died
    Deep in my bones
    Straight from inside

    I’m waking up

    I feel it in my bones
    Enough to make my systems blow
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age
    Welcome to the new age, to the new age

    I’m radioactive, radioactive
I’m radioactive, radioactive

      • MFX 1209

        If you define contaminated as "unwanted" then any area is contaminated. If you define contaminated by a specific dpm level, then there are only very very few places that rise to that level. Mostly at nuclear sites where controls are tight.

        Remember we are talking about 10^10 km^3 of real estate. That is a very huge amount.

          No, but it's getting there. The radiation is well distributed throughout the Earth's atmosphere, with more entering by the hour.

      right ftlt, how could the worlds largest release of nuclear poison have any effect on the sea life…in the absence of proof? How could it…how could it….how could it….how could it?

      • some people just aren't aware that nuclear and gov have been lying for the 69 years they've been at the cauldron, why would they act any different now? Or, maybe they too hold a stake in the cauldron, stirring, stirring…

    • Here comes the "proof" challenge again, LOL. Why don't people who need proof take a fricken' 2 month tour of the beaches from Alaska to California?! And paddle a raft around on the Pacific ocean too.

      I find these *prove it* people to be trapped in *argument for the sake of argument land* and very limited in actual field journalism.

      When the last species dies, there's going to still be someone saying "I see no proof, therefore there was no last straw radiation factor."

      I'm sure as hell not going to sit on my butt demanding proof while there's a possibility that we can get the NPP's shut down. Then it's on to where does the damned waste get stored.

      It may already be too late….but we're trying. That's why we network together on sites like this one.

      • One never knows where a person is.. because there is so much normalcy bias and denial going on, plus active disinformation..

                That being the case, I could see where he irradiated single celled organisms with massive doses of radiation, but where is the evidence that he dialed the doses way way down for selected cells to see at what point, cell damage occured without the benefit of the immune system.

      Arsenic catalyzes the effects of ionizing radiation. It is used in radiation therapy. Certain target areas are pre-treated with low level arsenic, then the bad cells can be zapped using less radiation. Healthy cells are more "protected" with less radiation being used.

      Ionizing radiation does much of its damage by creating free radicals within the cell. Peroxide is one component. It stands to reason that a myriad of chemicals and heavy metals make radiation worse; in fact studies show that these pollutants work synergistically to damage immunity and facilitate cancer. Mutations and epigenetic damage is just now being understood – long before the nuclear energy went to market, of course.

    It would actually be kind of hilarious if it weren't so sad, theres a huge elephant in the room in Every one of these stories, like they only wrote half the article or maybe only half makes it past the edicensors.

    Again and Again and Again. Craziness with the environment and wildlife, things humans have never seen occur before, of course they are testing, no danger to people, thanks for reading.

    Part of the problem is that all these former nuclear people can babble for hours about how safe it is and was, no possible health effects, cause of course they would have been told. Low low levels, bananas and X-rays and airplane flights.

    But Washington State will probably never come around, too much entrenched pro-nuclear in this state, I could see humanity being unable to viably reproduce or the complete collapse of the Pacific in 5 or 10 years and the Washington State of Educated Stupidity still putting out stories about how they are researching this or that interesting animal behavior and results are forthcoming, and still never mentioning radiation or fuku.

      NASA says here

      Total mass of atmosphere: 5.1 x 1018 kg

      http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/factsheet/earthfact.html

      Now assuming even all of the Fukushima mass gets out into the atmosphere you are only talking about 1e-15 gms fissile/gm atmosphere

      That is the plain fact.

      1e-15 is a 0. followed by 14 zeros.

        MFX, that is flawed logic. Fallout falls out. As a professional, and even as a layperson, you would know that.

        two grams of Cesium-137 can turn a square mile into an uninhabitable radioactive exclusion zone. A professional nuke safety engineer would know this.

        the 1100 square mile uninhabitable exclusion zone that surrounds the Chernobyl reactor has about 100 curies per square mile. 1000 miles non inhabitable, and Russia isnt going err on the side of caution. Is that a small amount of land? Glad its not YOUR land?

        How many curies in Fukushima? You have the answers, tell us. 300 million curies? Enough to potentially make 3 million square miles uninhabitable, as a rough estimate?

        You know that nobody believes your pro nuke drivel. Why not come up with some real numbers and prove your worth? How much land/ocean/people can be contaminated by Fukushima? Go ahead, give a number by the book.

        Reactor No. 3 had 32 MOX assemblies, reportedly enriched to 6% or 330 kg of Pu239? How many people/animals can die by inhaling hot particles of plutonium from 330 kg source?

        1 gram of plutonium can overdose ten million civilians. Anybody can make the calculation, but I want YOU to do it and post the answer for everyone to see. Your time is short, professional nuker. At least redeem yourself with some numbers that dont lie

          Two grams of Cs-137? Where do you get that little tid bit of information?

          Right now there is probably a blanket of 1e-9 grams around Fukushima. Thats next to nothing.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            MFX does not answer questions or give numbers. Why? Is he a professional?

            The 2003 International Atomic
            Energy Agency (IAEA) revised its Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources. A dirty bomb consisting of 50 grams, set off near the white house would contaminate 5 square miles to dangerous levels and cause over 300 deaths. From this accepted criteria, one could extrapolate the deadly effects of Fukushima, being a dirty bomb of grand proportion. Why wont you confirm your expertise by giving us some numbers MFX instead of just being a pest of empty pro nuke words? Give us some numbers or get lost

                I wonder if Madame Curie had a claw or hook made when she lost her hand? Did she continue working after she noticed her extremity was not what it used to be? I am in favor of renaming the curie to maybe gangus greenus. Or curious philangitus. Or how about radium curieitus. Who knows if she experimented with other body parts maybe she was the first to lose a nose or maybe she was the inspiration for that scene in Raiders where the Germ's face melted upon his gazing on the contents of the Ark. Anyway, Curie does not seem to be fitting for a large amount of rads. More like Meanies, not Blue Meanies, can't diminish the Beatles like that, but hard core shit that never quits, does not play nice and only demonic forces endorses.

    Guess the Pacific is not as vast as once thought. The Japanese have been overfishing the Pacific for decades and now have shot themselves in the foot with Daiichi poisoning their own fishing waters but Japan still needs to take whales for 'research'.

    The US is quickly reaching 3rd world status when Mexico has to lead the way in conservation of Pacific fishing, in this case.

    Link from the ENEnews post:
    "…About 90 percent of the Pacific bluefin catch is consumed in Japan, where one 489-pound bluefin caught in 2012 brought about $3,500 per pound at a fish market in Tokyo. That kind of economic incentive has driven aggressive fishing, with the result being a steep decline in Pacific bluefin numbers. An assessment of the species' status in January 2013 found that the Pacific bluefin population had declined by more than 96 percent since the global fishing industry started targeting the fish…"
    http://www.kcet.org/news/redefine/rewild/fish/feds-to-consider-ban-on-bluefin-tuna-fishing.html

    BTW, any pole shift is not a certainty. The poles could drift, as they are doing now, without flipping even though GPS navigation has to be continuously adjusted. And the Japanese Great Quake did throw the Earth off its axis enough to shorten atomic kept clock time by milliseconds besides having to redraw the Japanese coastline because some of it subducted and shifted.

  • This is a visible enemy in many ways, we must use the visible proof against the PTB, even if it is only for personal use, and our families. Sunlight deprivation is NOT something that can be ignored, and with so much CS137 NOT changed to Barium137 yet, were all screwed. Big time. Laugh all you wish folks, they debunked Carl Sagan. This does NOT mean there will be no nuclear winter, and that you can just keep ignoring that reality also. Proof is what we need PROOF is what I have found. And has anyone bothered to see the truth?

    Ontological,
    Bonsairebellion and others suggested creating a place to post photos of tree leaf mutations. Great idea, but I don't have the cyber skills, bandwidth or time
    Is it possible to create a sub folder on your excellent pink sky site for plant mutation photos? Without creating an over large burden on you? I know what you're going through, dear friend, it saddens all of us.
    If this is not possible, perhaps someone else? I can photograph some real doozies from any tree in town.

    DEADLINE AUG 3. Hi all, am posting this here because the Comments buttons on the Petitions and Low Level Rad forums have been disabled. The link I am providing here makes it very easy to comment on the EPA proposal to relax radiation standards in the US, when in fact we all know they should be strengthened. This link has the docket number, a draft letter you can use or change as you wish. The organisation behind the campaign, the Nuclear Information and Resource Service, has a long and venerable history of resisting all things nuclear, esp nuclear power. They are also well worth donating a few dollars to, if people have it. They do good work and fight the good fight against the nuclear industry. Here is your opportunity to comment now on the insane plan by the US govt to relax radiation standards: http://org2.salsalabs.com/o/5502/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=17863

    Me thinks the House of Saud would be antithetical to nuclear. What can be said? All nuclear is essentially a defensive posture to the probability of embargo by nations with the power to restrict energy conventional. Nations want to be secure in their energy paradigm. Except it is a false sense of security obviously because it can be used against them right on their own soil. So to engage in proliferation is at the consequence of the party so inclined. It is like providing the criminal with the power, the weapon by which he/she will use to hold you hostage, economically, politically and figuratively.

    Notice: User MFX 1209 is a self-admitted US nuclear industry employee and Internet hacker who by his own admission has been banned from this blog repeatedly by the Enenews admin.
    He uses US government computer resources to circumvent the ban (your government resources at work…write or call your Congressman to complain).

    Do not respond to his postings or engage him in his disruptive mind games.
    Ignore all his postings please.

    If you feel incensed by his deceit and unethical behavior please copy and paste this notice as needed. Once per person a day should suffice. One notice for each thread should be plenty.

    Thank you for your patience in this matter.

    Additionally, every time you see a posting by this US nuclear industry disrupter:

    Please post a comment at EPA's website in response to their proposal to raise allowable dose allowances from nuclear power plant emissions (a huge increase in the radioactive toxins they are currently allowed to vent).
