Fairbanks city council unanimously passes Fukushima monitoring resolution: Alaska and west coast of N. America in danger — “No safe levels of radiation… constitutes grave risk” — Alaska Senator: “We need to be vigilant” (AUDIO)

Published: March 15th, 2014 at 3:35 pm ET


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. […] β€œWe need to be vigilant on this,” [Senator Lisa] Murkowski said.


  • 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.

        They did the same crap in the recent community meeting in Carlsbad, NM. The main speaker thanked the government officials for being so helpful in allaying everyone's fears by telling them that if they ran any risk at all, it was like dental x-rays or an airline flight. Made it so much easier for people. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

        I guess that the next time you go to the dentist, be sure to request the "plutonium x-ray special." So you can feel really assured that you are safe.

        Bananas are mostly our friends. High in natural potassium. And the commissioner from the environmental department in Alaska thinks that tuna is safer? Great. Put tuna on the menu every day for him. Just remove him from that department!!

        • fireguyjeff fireguyjeff

          Not sure why this just hit me…..

          So why is it then that the dentist ALWAYS puts the heavy lead blanket across your abdomen when they take a tooth X ray??!!

          And why does everyone clear the room to hide behind the lead lined wall when the X ray machine does it's thing??!!

          It's not like anyone goes in for a dental X ray once a week or once a month. And they know good and well that we don't.

          So why the "protection" for just once or twice a year (and typically much less)?

          (Personally, these are purely rhetorical questions.)

        Radioactive Banana! Peeling Away the Mystery
        All bananas contain potassium (element K). All potassium contains 93+ % Potassium 39, stable potassium, and a little bit of the isotope Potassium 41, perhaps 6+ %. But, all potassium also contains a tiny fraction of the radioactive isotope of potassium, Potassium 40 (K40).

        Potassium 40 undergoes three forms of decay, beta -, rarely beta+, and electron capture. The last step emits a gamma ray with an energy of 1461 keV. It is this gamma ray that I detected.

        My calculations for the typical radioactivity of a banana:

        The number of Potassium (K) atoms per gram of potassium:
        (Avogadro's Number / Atomic Weight of K40) = 6.022 x10^23 / 39 = 1.544 Γ— 10^22 K Atoms/gram

        The amount of Potassium in a Banana (approx):
        grams of Potassium in a banana = 0.442 grams

        Natural abundance of K40 per normal Potassium (A): 0.000117

        Half life of Potassium: 3.9357Γ—10^16 seconds (T 1/2).

        ((Avogadro's Number) / (Atomic weight)) x (0.442 g) x (A) x (ln 2) / (T1/2)
        (((6.022*10^23 / 39)*0.442) x 0.000117) x ln2 / (3.9357Γ—10^16)
        =14.0633 decays per second per banana
        = 14.0633 Bq Banana^-1

      You know what though? The City of Fairbanks is on the ball and recognizes the risk as it is. They are looking for funding here to run their own programs at the University of Alaska. That to me is a win in my book! Good job getting on the right path guys! Alaska still has some fair amount of autonomy from the federal government. Great job and keep it up and keep vigilant and keep testing! Wonderful news for once!

        I know what you are saying, but that obviously didn't work in Fairbanks did it? So despite the nuke slaves reading out of their playbook actually working, the people in Fairbanks knew better and are not denying the seriousness of this. They want money to fund the programs IN Alaska at the University of Alaska. That is not the IAEA, and they aren't asking for technical help just money. They will do the science themselves. I consider that a win.

              • Shaker1

                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.


                  everyone knows, Shaker1, there's no hiding out here. So I become suspicious when someone intimates that contributing to ENENEWS could compromise ones anonymity. When-and-if you reach the point where you're more concerned with your own safety, over that of our world, I'd say you've exceeded your alloted time on ENENEWS…

                  • Shaker1

                    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.

      • glass door glass door

        A lot of charities that take donations have addresses for people to mail donations to because a lot of people still aren't comfortable with putting their credit card online or joining PayPal.


          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…

          • glass door glass door

            "alreadyconsidereddead" was asking for was a way to mail a donation.

            That's his/her prerogative if he/she doesn't want to put his/her credit card on the net or join PayPal.

            I didn't see anywhere where he/she tried to discourage anyone from donating to ENENEWS.

            A lot of people simply prefer to mail donations.


              re-read his post, glass door. He clearly states that he's averse to exposing himself anymore than is necessary to our overseers. He's not simply suggesting the need for snail mail contributions. Of course, you're more than welcome to run defense for him…

              I'm appending the link to his initial comments:


              • glass door glass door

                I'm not "running defense" for anyone.

                I think sometimes people read TOO MUCH into other people's comments.

                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.

                Guess we see it differently. No worries.


                  obvious you're running defense, glass door. I've requested your returning to his post for clarification. You appear only interested in downplaying the significance of his initial post. You're now retiring to a defense that it's in the eye of the beholder. It isn't. He has clearly stated that making donations to ENENEWS is risky. Anyone who feels the same can (and I'm being polite) go…eff themselves…

                    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.

                    • AFTERSHOCK AFTERSHOCK

                      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…

          • humptydumpty humptydumpty

            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.


              appears, humptydumpty wants us to get outta the pan and into the fire. You actually think any government would open its purse to the anti-nuke movement, let alone ENENEWS? You think IRS oversight is a good thing?

              • glass door glass door

                Ironically, aftershock, it may be you who dissuaded people from donating to ENENEWS by making such an issue out of alreadyconsidereddead's comment.

                Most people would have glossed right over it, but you keep going on about it, and IMO misinterpreting his/her comment.

            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.

              WTNF, you need to check your network access. Updated your system lately, if you use Windows OS, or Java? It might be worth the trouble to check that access now, then restore to an earlier date and notice the difference. Each morning when I logon to my machine, as others here share the local network, I check services that are allowed access and delete those for which I haven't already turned off that service in Control Panel. Look into privacy plugins (while being aware that some of those access third-parties) if you use Firefox (sorry, I don't use Chrome or any google product that I'm aware of and banish any reference to them in my registry on regular checks) or IE. Even 'In Privacy' in IE is better than nothing. I'm also one of those who have set my browser to prompt for acceptance of cookies, Active X, and plugins, and have it set to display their origin so I can judge. I set the default email link in the browser to a program I don't use nor have on my machine. My spam box gets almost nothing. I keep links in a plain text file (not Word), not 'favorites' so that no remote streams are that easily available, and save no passwords outside of my own text file. Regarding shopping, I'd rather give my credit card number to a real person who'll give me their name than anything online. If a site doesn't have an 800 number I can call, to hell with them. I've yet to find an item so exclusive that I couldn't do that. Seems a lot of work, but it isn't.

              Pretty sure that is google ads and you need to clean all cookies off and browser history after any searches, or yes, the product you once desired will follow you around on the web.

        Well, look at Carlsbad, for example — the locals who work at WIPP. Population poor, wants stable job paying enough to support their families. Made easy to exploit. So I don't LIKE what they do for a living, but I don't know how to get them out of it, either. It takes education and it also takes support. But our cultural infrastructures currently work in reverse.

      • There is actually a good reason for your request.

        The workers that spent almost a week working at WIPP were exposed to radiation coming out of mine and were not told about it, nor was the public.

        They worked, got exposed and then went home and shopping and to the movies, with radiation contamination on them. They potentially contaminated a huge swath of where ever they went.

        Of course, to see if this actually happened they would have to test their homes, their cars, where they went, etc. NO ONE is going to do that. They are hoping all of this will just blow over and no one will demand anything.

    "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 Γ— 31 Bq/g β‰ˆ 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 least these "scientists" could do would be to give bananas a break and talk about potatoes. Obviously anyone comparing a banana and salmon needs remedial education.

      • We Not They Finally

        Oh, worse than that. Cesium displaces potassium in the body. So if you are not ingesting enough potassium nutritionally, then you're ripe to be nuked by radioactive cesium. YES, we need remedial education!

          stock sorry to interrupt, have you seen this yet? http://www.wipp.energy.gov/Special/AIB%20Report.pdf

          DOE Accident Investigation Report (3-13-14) on the WIPP Truck Fire. Facts on what happened, minute by minute description of Fire Event on page 15, page 65 is DOE Analysis. I posted this a couple of times, thought people would want to see this.


          • zogerke zogerke

            from the report findings: If this was true for a fire, how much worse for a nuke event.

            CON 2
            : NWP management allows expert based, rather than a process/systems base approach to decision making, e.g., shift to filtration during a fire, sheltering decisions,
            CON 3: The emergency management program was not structured such that personnel were driven to adequately size up, properly categorize, and classify emergency events.
            The WIPP (NWP and CBFO) emergency management program is not fully compliant with DOE O 151.1C, Comprehensive
            Emergency Management System,e.g., activation of the
            EOC, classification and categorization, emergency action levels, implementation of the ICS, training, triennial exercise, etc. Weaknesses in classification,
            categorization, and emergency action levels (EALs)
            were previously identified byexternal reviews and uncorrected.

            • zogerke zogerke

              that is a scathing report. page 55- the management does not giving a flying rats ass about the workers, they were never even adequately trained in how to donn rescue escape respirators…. the union there must be in bed with management…..

              • wildandfree wildandfree

                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.

              • califnative califnative (NY)

                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".

    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.

  • atomicistheword

    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?

    • hbjon hbjon

      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.

      • atomicistheword


        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?

        I take my comments very seriously with the intention to reach the ordinary person who does not have a science degree or the front of a liar.

        • hbjon hbjon


          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.

    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.

    As a foot note they gave us tobacco and syphilis, they died happy.

    • Shaker1

      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."

        Yes debatable, different stains exist but the time line is in sync you must agree.
        Was Columbus the first? Chinese, Vikings, Irish monk etc.

  • the pro nuke sites are now trying to pimp out the hormesis lie….that a little radiation, no matter the source, is good for you…the old "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" idea.

    Singin' the same old tune: ''People ingest more radiation from eating a banana than from eating a tuna''

    Yay, Fairbanks: ''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''

    no safe levels. no safe levels. no safe levels. eat shit and die. no safe levels.

I agree, why help them, and believe in using cash, as well as trying to avoid giving away my info. But that CVS card and that Stop and Shop card, that Sunoco discount card, all tracked. I got a letter from the DMV almost a year ago WARNING me that I had passed a school bus at a traffic light! I was swearing they were wrong, but they enclosed the picture. And from the angle it was taken from behind the red light. This was a intersection in Wilmington Ma. about 15 miles from Boston in a quiet suburb! And all those camera are networked into the Fusion centers. They know ALL about YOU, no matter who you are! And they are KILLING YOU NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE! And they are doing it in a hundred different ways we are just beginning to understand. Seems to me contributing to ENENEWS is far better than whatever church you belong to that is ignoring this! And don't worry about them knowing. They will kill most of us without ever using that info πŸ™‚ Want to speak out before you die? Then grow some balls and donate. But don't enter into THIS ring with distractions and lame defenses. Too many pissed off people that KNOW the truth, that are WAY above your pay grade here πŸ™‚ On a different note, anyone remember "I know an old lady that swallowed a fly?" The same thing seems to be going on with the lies and distractions in this world.

    Agreed !!

  • But if they are going to kill us anyway you look at it, what is the risk? Donate, speak out, go to your city council, educate and inform others. The thing that HORRIFIES me the MOST about Fukushima isn't the radiation, death toll, or what I see left unchecked as a ELE, it's the STUPIDITY of the masses. Ya, we all knew the leaders were insane, but in all the TV and movies we've been PROGRAMMED with mankind unifies when presented with a major threat to the planet. Looks like that was just another lie. They are too busy watching "Dancing with the Stars" or don't want to "pay attention to negativity". As far as a NSA, they are working top down and using it for control and MONEY!. See if you spy on EVERYONE you justify spying on anyone πŸ™‚ So in the first phase they start with Congress, the Supreme Court, and the heads of all the major corporations. This phase seems complete and they are moving down to apply the same to the states and local levels. When you control both the carrot and the stick, there are few you can't bend.

    And I like the analogy of the old lady that swallowed a fly – about the lies and distractions going on in the world. So true. Twilight of the Psychopaths… or…a game of beer pong.

    Thanks, great link πŸ™‚

  • I know an old lady that swallowed a fly, perhaps she'll die. I wouldn't put it past the insane people that control this world to have a WW3 to cover the economic collapse and Fukushima. Blow off 20-30 nukes, and no one will be thinking about Fukushima, or blaming the radiation on it. And we'll all be under martial law. We are being set up in the Ukraine, but flashing out might be the most merciful way to go. At this point, being in the Boston area, I figure I'll flash in any nuke exchange. Wouldn't be much difference from a heart attack, only quicker. But I can't help but look at this situation and think "What a waste!"

Blame it on Russia and China, Venusuala, Iran, North Korea, ANYONE but the bankers. And they have publicly stated repeatedly that they want to kill 90% of us. I KNOW they are working on it every time I turn on my geiger counter πŸ™‚ If there was EVER an issue mankind should be able to unite behind it was Fukushima. Been 3 years, and other than here, all I hear is crickets and LIES.

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    What do you think the State of Alaska will do with this request?

    Does the federal government accept requests directly from a city council? Probably get a form letter back saying use the chain of command.

    What do you think that the U.N. will do? Send a request to the cigar shaped UFO over the Ukraine, a message in a bottle? Tied to a helium balloon?

    I notice they did not wait for the state to answer. Good choice, most likely.

    IMO – The resistance to the Nuclear Power Industry will most likely begin at the LOCAL level.

    Fallout is sometimes seemingly random.

    When people and LOCALities begin to see on their OWN Rad Detectors what is happening to their OWN families and children, then something can get done.

    Obviously, listening to 'higher' authorities who have nothing to gain by telling the truth is a mistake.

    πŸ˜‰ A possible deadly mistake.

    "…the state health department SHOULD BE involved in this."
    – Mayor Bates, Berkeley CA

    'Should be', but they're not. Why is that?

    It's going on 3 YEARS, 3 MELTDOWNS, nonstop, with no end in sight and all that any agency or it's experts will say is 'there is no immediate concern'.

    The Nuclear Industry and it's supporters have been lying and will continue to lie, cover up, raise limits, not release data, 'pass the buck' and misdirect the truth at all cost.
    (keywords = truth, cost)

    The city should buy rad detectors for each city resident and 'bill it' to the state health department. Maybe put rad sniffers for garbage trucks and police cars and 'Safecast' the city. Drones can do rad mapping now too.

    Don't rely on the state or ANY federal agency to do YOUR rad readings if you want the…

  • Nuclear-Free-Zone

    I'm just a newbie here…. but you old timers and folks with all the jokes might want to offer some gratitude to the SANE members of Fairbanks who have done something ACTIVE in the face of this disastrous event

    You can write to them here:


    • Sparky Sparky

      @Nuclear-Free-Zone, Thank you, good idea. I imagine the Fairbanks Alaska City Council is taking a lot of flack in their community and from outsiders for going too far with this, or not far enough. These are people that have taken a very public stand on this issue, possibly alienating their loved ones, friends, colleagues, etc. IMO, they are to be commended.

      Having in hand resolutions from Fairfax, Berkeley, Mendocino, and now Fairbanks, will make it easier to broach the subject of passing similar resolutions locally.

      • Nuclear-Free-Zone

        Sparky and others:
        I realize it seems pretty hopeless. I think it was more likely that the residents of Fairbanks who initiated this… Nearly ALL forage from the sea. Nearly all are directly or indirectly affected by the ocean economy… "Not far enough" should never be an option for any of us who reside on this forum…We have time. We have congresspersons… yes – they have proved themselves rarely on "our" side…. but we need to let them know – DAILY if possible – that we are not the dumbed down populace they planned on us being in this new and challenging millennium… Even truly stupid remarks on ENE seem salient by comparison to what's coming out of too many government mouths.

        • glass door glass door

          Sen. Murkowski is hugely pro-nuclear.

        • Sparky Sparky

          Nuclear-Free-Zone, I'm one to always hold out for hope. But the magnitude of this global poison through all vectors (human and natural), the depraved indifference of the nuclear cabal, and the relative silence of the MSM is so MIND-BOGGLING.

          Sometimes I feel like my head is going to explode if I read or hear about one more "radiologic event" that didn't REALLY happen, or if it did, there's "no apparent health or safety threat," or "Geezz, we never expected this to happen…unprecedented," or now we have a "better" nuclear death machine/storage option….Most government/industry reps have been little more than pro-nuke mouth pieces and/or accomplices.

          We need to recognize those that have the courage and decency to buck this trend. Each in our way, we have to do something to mitigate the damage to the extent possible. Your post above reminded me that I need to shake-off this nuclear depression and ramp-up my efforts beyond my own household and workplace. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Hello everybody!
    Although new in the forum, I've been following you for one year or so.
    As I am seaman and sailing along for 42 years across the 5 oceans and the 5 continents, including the Antarctica, I think I could asses you if required, in meteo o oceanographic topics, at least.
    I survived three hurricanes, and the last one was north off Hawaii while approaching Vancouver coming across the Pacific from Hobart, Tasmania.
    Also Called at Seattle, Portland, Port Everett and San Diego.
    What I mean is that I really feel the world as my oyster and very concerned about what's going out with Fuk-U-shima, as some of you call it and the West Coast.
    I am spreading your voice here in Spain, because I feel you as brothers and sisters, so I call the humans who are awake enough to "see" and open hearts to "understand" we are all the same old f. race in just one beautiful, awesome planet… that we are wasting.
    Thanks to you all for the job you are doing here.

      have you sailed through the great pacific garbage patch(es), the pacific gyres?
      have you sailed though the pacific post fukusihima? what have you observed that has changed?

      what has changed if you have been sailing for 42 years?

      • zogerke zogerke

        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.

        • luzbel luzbel

          No problem at all, zogerke.
          IΒ΄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.

              weather patterns, zogerke. I also want to send love and salutations to our Spanish brother.

              BTW, luzbel, my great grandfather solo-sailed about the world, long ago. He was originally from Catalonia; a line that dates back thousands of years to ancient Rome. I'm far removed from that historic line of warriors…

  • luzbel luzbel

    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.

      It deals with Carlsbad, New Mexico, dumping of radioactive waste into the sea around Sellafield, Fukushima issues, Greenpeace efforts to stop the dumping, ways the nuclear industry circumvents the rules and covers it up, Waste Isolation Pilot Project whitewash.

      Chris Busby explains the effects of DU and the contamination of the Iris Sea and North Atlantic. Beyond Nuclear explains Fukushima.

    Waste Isolation Pilot Program. I just saw the meaning, sorry.

    • GQR2

      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.

    • WindorSolarPlease

      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.
