Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Mar. 10, 2014 (h/t Anonymous tip): Council to ask for more radiation testing [...] [Fairbanks city] council will consider a resolution tonight that calls on the federal government and United Nations to do more radiation testing in Alaska waters. It asserts that health risks related to nuclear meltdown have been vastly understated [...]

Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Mar. 12, 2014: [...] By a unanimous vote Monday, the Fairbanks City Council passed a resolution urging the state and federal government, as well as the United Nations, to do more radiation testing in Alaska waters. The resolution was introduced by Fairbanks City Mayor John Eberhart and had the support of the council and several people who came to testify. [...] Larry Hartig, the state commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation [said] People ingest more radiation from eating a banana than from eating a tuna [...] Concern about Fukuskima radiation also was raised at the Tanana Chiefs Conference convention Tuesday in Fairbanks. P.J. Simon, a delegate from Allakaket, said possible radiation in migrating salmon posed a risk to subsistence activities. [...] “We need to be vigilant on this,” [Senator Lisa] Murkowski said.

RESOLUTION NO. 4617, A RESOLUTION REQUESTING FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE DISASTER AT FUKUSHIMA (pdf), Mar. 10, 2014:

  • WHEREAS, the March 2011 meltdowns of three nuclear power plants on the northeast coast of Japan constitute a danger to Japan, the North Pacific basin, Alaska and the west coast of North America; and [...]
  • WHEREAS, available information from scientific sources, the government of Japan, and the corporate operator of the facility, reveal unprecedented large and ongoing releases of extremely dangerous radioisotopes to the atmosphere and the ocean; and
  • WHEREAS, there are no safe levels of radiation emitted from manmade isotopes, and human and animal ingestion and/or contact with them constitutes grave risk for many forms of cancer and multiple dysfunctions in biological systems [...]
  • NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that the City Council of the City of Fairbanks, Alaska, urges the federal government, State of Alaska, and the United Nations to begin a thorough and ongoing monitoring program of Alaska’s coastal water resources, its major fresh water streams and lakes, particularly surface waters that supply potable water to citizens. The monitoring program should be adequately funded to accomplish scientific analysis at the University of Alaska, wherein it will identify and quantify levels of radioisotopes in commercial seafood and subsistence foods. Data should be published on a web site dedicated to that purpose.
  • Section 2. PASSED and APPROVED this 10th day of March 2014.

                While I understand the sarcasm, alreadyconsidereddead has a valid question and some measure of strategy to show their disdain for much of what we might consider 'necessary' or 'forced' in our lives. Noncooperation is the most profound and non-violent manner in which to show your thoughts. To do nothing monetary online, refusal to allow oneself to be forced into the bill-paying, direct-deposits, may seem to do little, but it adds up. When the bank tells one that they must keep a $1500 balance in checking to retain the free checking as it's been for years OR accept the use of direct deposit to avoid a $7 monthy fee, one realizes that it's no small matter to them. (I get those services from a local credit union without the fee or direct-deposit, and I can have a say in their business dealings.) Admittedly, it takes some time, but it's really nothing I didn't do before, addressing envelopes, buying stamps. One may save a few bucks buying from Amazon, but one also misses the opportunity of the privacy of buying from a local retailer with cash, support of the local economy where the kids go to school and one actually lives their lives.

                    Aftershock, I believe I understand what you're saying and I agree. I think my point is that one should be aware of choice of what is important and that often there are choices that one can make and use that can facilitate one's personal comfort. I long ago gave up making myself 'anonymous' and it's a matter of philosophy. While I might firmly believe in being non-cooperative, that does not equate to disregarding what I feel is a responsibility to be an actor. I specifically choose to partake in things that I find objective, realizing that without what little power or contribution that I have and can make will never change the reason for those objections. I hope that what I said is seen in that light.

          then, glass door, it would be far more productive to simply request a snail-mail address, for those who don't have the means for EFT-based donations.

          This suggestion that we should be guarded about using electronic fund transfers to help keep the lights on at ENENEWS, is absurd. Given what we know about NSA data-mining of our every move on the 'net, anyone who thinks they can somehow avoid leaving a vapor trail, out here [especially on a frontline site like ENENEWS!] is an rank amateur (there…I said it). Of course, suggesting that we think twice before helping ENENEWS is precisely what some 'individuals' would want…

                He/she asked for a mailing address because he/she personally isn't comfortable with donating the other way.

                It's a huge leap, IMO, to go from asking for a mailing address to assuming he/she is trying to discourage donations.

                    Respectfully, aftershock, I believe that the initial comment was asking for an alternative to Paypal. The reference that Paypal might be objectionable was to Paypal alone (whatever the actual facts may be concerning it and information gathering) not Enenews itself…In my mind, that information of an alternative might actually encourage those who might not think to ask such a question or simply assume alternatives don't exist to donate.

                      while I pride myself, Shaker1, in my ability to make sense of divergent viewpoints, I cannot dismiss this blatant warning against using electronic services to fund ENENEWS.

                      Had he contacted admin one-on-one and avoided the raising a red flag in public, I'd have had no need to call him out. He purposely chose to raise that warning flag in front of us all. So, he's either ignorant of the fact that the NSA already knows who's behind every keystroke and mouse click, or, it was his intention to plant the seed of doubt.

                      I've appended the contents of his initial post below. The second paragraph makes the case about the duplicitous nature of the his comment. He clearly knows our activities are being monitored, yet feigns concern that financing the site will lead to further compromise. How fucking convenient to those who only love to see ENENEWS forever gone…

            NSA and its overlords have a heightened interest in financial transactions, far greater than blog posts, which is why a bricks & mortar address is a good idea. Not that the FBI couldn't get access to the name of the person registered at that address if they had sufficient reason to. All the PO BOX operators have confidentiality agreements you have to sign, and they have "loopholes" for federal scrutiny. Like everything else. But keep in mind the feds are mostly after "suspected terrorists."

            I have a better idea: ENEnews could register as a 5013C non-profit political organization, thus contributions can remain undisclosed and out of bounds even to the gov. It's just a big hassle, though, to set this up.

            We can just be cautious, that's all. Like I suddenly saw my word processing computer bank show up on an Xfinity Comcast screen! I was alarmed, angry, and got the materials OFF of there post haste.

            That's supposed to be impossible to happen. But then I read that YES, THEY CAN DO THAT REMOTELY!

            Another day, I ordered a health product off of a website. Then I logged into THIS website, and an ad for that very product was right in my face! I had thought that admin runs ads for payment that just reach everyone (and I imagine that this was IN NO WAY admin's fault — not saying that at all!) but the odds were completely impossible that this would show up here right in my face exactly after I had ordered that exact product.

            Then similar products showed up in my face for the first time on ads on other websites over the next day. So it was clear that I was being "tracked" and "up-selled" or the like.

            Our whole "Sent" e-mail box gets ripped off on a regular basis. So I try to just not keep anything "really private" in there.

            But we still have to LIVE, and hopefully survive this culture. It's annoying, yes, but we can just be cautious. So I'm on the side of alreadyconsidereddead, but I just have to weave in and out of the options and watch my back. Either that or go live in the woods with no electronics at all.

    "The validity of the banana equivalent dose concept has been challenged. Critics pointed out that the amount of potassium (and therefore of 40K) in the human body is fairly constant because of homeostasis,[9][10] so that any excess absorbed from food is quickly compensated by the elimination of an equal amount.[1][11]

    It follows that the additional radiation exposure due to eating a banana lasts only for a few hours after ingestion, namely the time it takes for the normal potassium contents of the body to be restored by the kidneys. The EPA conversion factor, on the other hand, is based on the mean time needed for the isotopic mix of potassium isotopes in the body to return to the natural ratio after being disturbed by the ingestion of pure 40K; which was assumed by EPA to be 30 days.[9] If the assumed time of residence in the body is reduced by a factor of ten, for example, the estimated equivalent absorbed dose due to the banana will be reduced in the same proportion.

    The human body contains about 2.5 grams of potassium per kilogram of body mass,[12] or 175 grams in a 70 kg adult. (Not all of this potassium is 40K, though.) The amount of naturally-occurring potassium decay in humans is therefore less than 175 g × 31 Bq/g ≈ 5400 Bq of radioactive decays, constantly through the person's adult lifetime." Wikipedia

    "Besides bananas, other foods that are rich in potassium (and therefore in 40K) are potatoes, kidney beans, sunflower seeds, and nuts.[13][14] Brazil…

                The safety manager has a tough job at any facility. They develop and review safety standards and look to test those standards against the capabilities of the facility. Good thing right? The end result is that almost everyone complains, breathing apparatus is a pain, waste of time "we know this shit" ect. Training frequency breaks down then the facility becomes further removed from compliance. The safety manager concerned for the welfare of the workers, the public and the ability of the facility to perform in an emergency applies added pressure to attempt to rerout a failing program. The end result, the safety manager is out the gate looking in, and you get operations as presented in these reports. Sad state of affairs. This of course is my opinion and experience.

                Yes, thank you for reading this! I thought what a circus it was down there, ill trained workers but it's their fault, they tried to go to management but they didn't want any "negativity". It's disgusting to read Conca rave about WIPP being the best place for nuclear waste. I hope this report is dissected and points can be brought to the next Carlsbad town meeting on the March 23rd.

    So people who work around kidney beans, potatoes, Brazil nuts, etc. should be required to wear radiation badges; or people who work at nuclear power plants should throw them away and realize radiation is not a problem?

    70 some years of ionizing radiation and the West is still flummoxed regarding whether or not it is safe or dangerous. Three cheers for willful ignorance.

    According to Dr. Helen Caldicott 1/1000,000 of a gram of plutonium will cause lung cancer. That would amount to one million/gram. So a pound in theory could cause close to half a billion cases. But then a prominent physicist says only two million. Where is science in America? Or is this the business community at work. This is scientific and not a business problem. I am sure some bright students at Cal Tech or MIT could handle this as an assignment. Or perhaps not.

    The impercepible particles have been released wholesale upon humanity and they obey the forces of nature. The forces of nature are complicated and exist weather or not we give them permission to. The wind and water currents will travel where they must, and the force of gravity will pull on them until they reach bedrock.

    To add even more chaos, living creatures produce another complex means by which they travel. Spark arrestors help to prevents hot ashes from leaving wood burning stoves, though ashes will still travel long distances where they may find kindling to ignite a fire.

    Often times ashes will come down in a rainstorm that travelled over a forest fire or Fukushima, in the case of Fukushima, humanity was somewhat fortunate to have storms drop most of the early imperceptible particles in the ocean instead of leaving them in the air for us all to breathe.

    I don't know why everyone gets so upset about the banana comparison. It's a well known fact that if one takes 100 Kg of banana's and places them under enough pressure that they will in fact fission. Hasn't anyone heard of what happened at the Banana Atoll's? The yield being approximately 100 megatons per Kg of banana. This shit is science! Just ask any nuclear speaker and they will tell you. Why they even eat a banana I have no clue. I think I'm going to start baking Cesium and Plutonium Bread from now on. Banana bread is just too dangerous to be ingesting when the experts admit that Cs and Pu are the same as an X-Ray.

    Here's the next ticking time bomb we can add to the watch list. The situation is particularly dangerous now as the operator FP&L is treating the problem as a minor glitch…a "not to worry" issue.

FP&L has reported the condition of the tubes; and, it is several times what San Onofre experienced before it was forced to close.

    Hoffman says, "St. Lucie is just another nuke clunker that should be retired forever."

    Let us disect the banana and reveal the jest of the Anti-humans.

    Yes it is true that cesium 137 with a total life after complete breakdown of 300 years (atomised) mimics potassium in how it is absorbed into the body cells. That is where the similarity ends.

    The potassium radiation in a banana is not attaching to body cells DNA and liberates harmlessly back into the environment. Cesium 137 a man made perversion of nature CAN attach to a cells DNA and stay there for longer than your lifespan. It irritates with minute electric charges forming a mutation of the CELL DNA called a cancer. The cancers then multiply and kill you. Yes it is true that cesium 137 can pass through your body when HEALTHY, but it takes an event like the common cold to place this process at risk. Cesium 137 is dangerous and NO LEVEL IS SAFE.

    The Anti-human jester can die exactly the same way as those who know the truth. The joker of mankind can become the joke of his own jest. Pretty sad when you think about it?

      What the heck. Nothin better to do right now. Let me try to make the banana thing work.

      If a banana is rich in potassium + cesium absorption is the same if not more so than potassium uptake into the cell + banana plant absorbs readily available cesium = banana has toxic level of cesium and not potassium.

      Therefore, the banana radioactivity is not due to potassium. It must be due to the cesium that has rained on it over the last three years replacing most of the potassium.

      There. I'll take a banana fission with a cherry on top. Hold the strawberries.

        I was speaking of the man made cesium 137 atomic radiation and how it attacks human organs when ingested; like the heart, "mimicking" potassium uptake in a human body.

        I believe you are possibly speaking of bio-uptake with contaminated food, although you did not mention man made a c-137?

          atomicistheword,

          You make very important points and it is an interesting subject to try to fully understand.

          When you stated that cesium mimicks potassium when absorbed into the tissue, it is also important to point out that potassium has been (partly) replaced by cesium in the banana plants. If the two are present in the soil, I believe the plant will choose cesium over potassium. I may be wrong. But seems logical.

    There is weird crap affecting our children in the outer villages that pre-dates Fukushima and they all know it: birth defects, cancer, respiratory illness, etc.. Pawned off thus far as the genetic result of a small population pool among native Alaskans.

    Max the way I look at it is, when Columbus first land in north America, in the Bahamas he could see hundreds off fires from settlements, yet when he returned three years later, he could see only a couple of fires, you ask why, the pathogens they introduced were not present in north America and millions died, bet you do not know that the scientists don't actually know the population of north America before Columbus, as the pathogens delimitated the population , from coast to coast.
    Manmade substances have the same effect.

      weeman, tobacco, yes. Syphilis?

      "Ancient and medieval sources have long been cited as evidence for syphilis in Europe before Columbus, but none of the descriptions by Greek and Roman authors are specific enough to be certain. Returning crusaders brought "Saracen ointment" containing mercury for treating "lepers," an appropriate medication for syphilis but not for leprosy. Thirteenth- and fourteenth-century A.D. references to "venereal leprosy" may also indicate syphilis because leprosy is not sexually transmitted. But the first unambiguous descriptions of syphilis begin around 1500. These may either reflect growing medical knowledge and ability to differentiate syphilis from other diseases or signal its arrival from the New World."

        i ask to find out who you are, respectfully. i also ask out of deep curiousity. i know the environmental changes i have seen in my lifetime and i'm just a few years short of sixty. those changes are mostly landlocked, and reflect the northeast of the USA. loss of birds, insects, the decay of organic matter slowed from what it was….
        i am wondering if you can articulate what changes you have seen, in addition to the blessings and grace of the creatures of the sea.

          No problem at all, zogerke.
          I´m myself 59 y.o. and as I say below I noticed radical changes in many ways inland, due to pollution of waters, mainly by sewage ,pesticides and fertilizers plus plastic everywhere. But is the meteo patterns what is more noticeable in a global scale.
          And the Nuclear affair means the "Final countdown" to me. It is the top cherry in this cake of shit, as we say in spanish.
          Salud y Amor.

    zogerke,
    I think I had a mistake. My wife is english. Been together for 27 years, so we often speak spanglish. Asses is from spanish: asesorar which really means to advice. Sorry.
    Well. I did sail the Pacific across, repeatedly from Australia, Fremantle-Perth in the west coast, but mainly the east coast, from Brisbane, Newcastle, Sidney and Tasmania, but in 1979-80-81. So, to cross the Pacific from there and from New Guinea, you must pass close to Hawaii in a loxodromic course or farther north in an ortodromic course. I didn't see that island or patch of plastic debris. Two reasons in my opinion:
    a) Our track was mainly out of that sort of sargasso's sea or the dead internal zone without currents which accumulates the garbage, which lies more to the west of my route.In any case, that patch had to be much smaller by then.
    b) When sailing closer to that zone we were using the orthodromic or great circle navigation which reaches high latitudes very fast. I remember it was about 55 degrees North. In one occasion I measured 30+ meters waves of swell and 10+ meters waves of wind seas. So, it was too rough, and in that condition, floating things get submerged and not visible from the surface.
    The last 25 years I've been sailing just Atlantic and Mediterranean and from my knowledge and experience in these waters, what I can assure and witness is that the main patterns of winds, high and low pressures, have changed a lot in different ways since early 90's.
    Salud y Amor

    If you want to really understand the scope of the nuclear waste storage check out this video.

      yes, luzbel its a pilot program. Safe to say the pilot has failed spactacularly and we probably have not seen the half of it,with more releases and possible explosions,earthquakes,sinkholes,and the wide spread permanent contamination that it will bring. The Waste Isolation Pilot Program so called needs to cease and be sealed up as "safely" as possible. i live in NM. They have failed to isolate this waste,and there is no reason to think the barrels sitting in the parking lot are isolated either. These people are lawless and have no sense of concern for their fellow humans. They practice NO safety down there. Completely reckless,negligent and criminal.

      Hi luzbel

      Yes that's what it means, they make it sound good.

      However, there is no such thing as a Waste Isolation.

      It is impossible to totally Isolate that waste.

    Larry Hartig is the type of person who have you believe you get more radiation from a banana than a fish who has been swimming in man made radiation will get you sick & dead with his EPA lies! The EPA, NRC are nothing by lap dogs for the DOE & Nuclear Cartel, it's time these people are exposed for what they, damn liars. I am so sick so the nuke cartel buying off the MSM & even buying into the net trying their best to trick people into thinking their safe, well their not. You have Fukushima feeding the Jet Stream & Pacific non stop, Hanford & Carlsbad, ST Louis Landfill & all the nuke plants releasing radiation of some sort daily. People better wake up & fast or they will be in line at many new cancer centers being built across the USA!
    The AMA does not want people to learn how to use natural non GMO foods to build your immune system, so folks stay with enenews for the best info on the net on updates on your health & how the nuke cartel is using so called experts to keep the truth from you.

    I suspect now we will see Fairbanks, and or the State suffer a financial reprimand from the Feds. Money won't be available for some reason to the universities. "Unexpected" compeer problems for the food stamp program. Infrastructure fund delays, fuel supplement costs delays or just less money, etc. The elected officials who let this pass will be involved in scandals, taxes will go up, fuel and food prices will increase. All the means of the "Feds", I mean GE's ability to quash this small voice in the unravelling tornado of death and destruction.
