Reuters, Nov 21, 2017 (emphasis added): Russia finds 1,000-times normal level of radioactive isotope after nuclear accident claims — Russia’s meteorological service said on Tuesday it had measured pollution of a radioactive isotope at nearly 1,000 times normal levels in the Ural mountains, the first official Russian data supporting reports that an accident had taken place… Russian state weather service Roshydromet said in a statement it had found “extremely high pollution” of ruthenium 106 in samples from two meteorological stations in the southern Ural mountains region in late September and early October…

The Guardian, Nov 21, 2017: Russia reports radioactivity 986 times the norm after nuclear accident claim; Moscow says ‘extremely high’ levels of ruthenium-106 discovered as Greenpeace urges inquiry into possible cover-up — Russia’s meteorological service has confirmed “extremely high” concentrations of the radioactive isotope ruthenium-106…

The Independent, Nov 21, 2017: Russian radioactivity recorded 986 times higher than usual as toxic cloud sparks nuclear accident rumours… Russia has said it found “extremely high” concentrations of a radioactive isotope in some parts of the country in September, amid reports of a nuclear accident

AP, Nov 21, 2017: The Russian Meteorological Service said in a statement Tuesday that it recorded the release of Ruthenium-106 in the southern Urals in late September and classified it as “extremely high contamination.”… The Russian meteorological office’s report, however, noted high levels of radiation in the villages adjacent to Rosatom’s Mayak plant for spent nuclear fuel. Mayak, in the Chelyabinsk region, has been responsible for at least two of Russia’s biggest radioactive accidents…

The Mirror, Nov 21, 2017: There are fears of a major nuclear accident in Russia after radiation levels at 1,000 times the normal level were detected. Russia’s meteorological service said it had discovered massive levels of a radioactive isotope in the Ural mountains – the first official Russian data supporting reports that an accident had taken place…

Multiple news outlets have unequivocally reported there was a nuclear leak in Russia:

The Times, Nov 21, 2017: Russia admits nuclear leak near site of 1957 disaster

The Week, Nov 21, 2017: Russian nuclear plant leaked radioactive cloud

Newsweek, Nov 21, 2017: Russia Leaked ‘Extremely High’ Radiation

However, Russian media has reported radioactivity levels in Europe were up to twice as high:

Sputnik, Nov 21, 2017: [T]he head of Rosgidromet said that the automatic monitoring system detected an increase in the concentration of Ru-106 not only in Russia, but also in neighboring countries such as Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Ukraine. According to him, the concentration in Romania was 1.5-2 times higher than the concentration in Russia.

Allegedly Apparent, Nov 12, 2017: “French Nuclear Watchdog” IRSN has been busy pitching that “Ru-106 radioactive cloud from Russia” story… anyone with internet can check out for themselves via EURDEP… there were upticks of Iodine-131 and both Cesium-134 & Cesium-137, among others… the French “watchdog” IRSN’s claim that the radioactive cloud only contained a trace of the Beta-emitter Ruthenium-106 is simply false…

      The Largest Nuclear Disaster You've Never Heard Of

      “… after Fukushima and Chernobyl, the third biggest nuclear disaster is called Kyshtym. Never heard of it? That’s because it happened in 1957, at the height of the Cold War, deep in the eastern Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union. The Soviets disclosed details to no one, not even the people affected. Even the name is a misdirection, because it didn’t happen in Kyshtym. It was in the town of Chelyabinsk-65 (which was renamed Ozyorsk in the early 1990s); this town, according to the Soviets, did not exist.

      "The Mayak Production Association runs plutonium facility No 817 in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia. During the Soviet era, its location was a secret to anyone who didn't work there. It was known as Chelyabinsk-40 after the postal code, and the nearby community was named Chelyabinsk-65. The facility was built in a hurry just after World War II in order to catch up with the Americans in nuclear weapons technology. The plant, which included six reactors, processed nuclear materials to develop weapons-grade plutonium. At the time, relatively little was known about the effects of radioactive materials on human workers, and even the dangers that were known were disregarded by Soviet authorities in their haste to develop nuclear weapons. The future town of Ozyorsk grew up around the facility….”

        Thanks Mack. Yes, it is pointing at something extremely serious potentially. What is intriguing is that even after Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima the nuclear barons have not learnt lessons. Nor have the common citizens have become sufficiently informed of the catastrophic-read extinction consequences of modern civilization. Russia has not woken up nor have any of the others. Great work revealed. Thanks once again. It is a pleasure to be visiting enenews and participating in it. Citizens should read:

          Further, the dams of the world are the common antecedent of a number of severe accidents. This Ural disaster seems to have really occurred with more than 40 percent probability of damages caused by the dams.
          See Predicting Earthquakes: The science of dams causing earthquakes and climate change:
          http://predictingquakes.blogspot.in/2015/04/the-science-of-dams-causing-earthquakes.html

            navilu…could you please explain how you visualize this; " The sum of all dam contents of the world at the center of gravity of these dams exerts a huge water moment at various points in and on the earth."

            Why are all dam contents summed to one center of gravity? By what load path are the moments transmitted? What is the cause of a focal point of action? Can we reproduce the effect with a model?

            thanks

              Because that's the truth. See also earthquakes caused by dams by the author at
              http://earthquakescausedbydams.blogspot.in/2006/07/title-earthquakes-caused-by-dams.html

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                Navilu; thanks. So the earth crust..lithosphere…is the lever of the moment and the faults become axis points? Is that the theory? Force × Perpendicular distance from the pivot is a typical definition of moment. The vectors are vertical. The center of gravity of all dams is pertinent only within a tectonic plate? To magnify either force or displacement (leverage principle) a fulcrum is required. I suppose this could take the form of complicated wave equations. The lithosphere acting like a damped whip, increasing velocity at thinner sections

                It appears, without digging into it, that the accumulation of water in the dams is faster than the draw down. The rate of change seems to be the factor of interest. This speed of accumulation is driven by rainfall. Now if there were no dams, the rain would still fall, and this would represent an equal amount of rate of change of vertical CG of water (rain on mountains is not immediately brought to sea level by rivers)…so, thats the rate at which water from ocean and other low lying locations is deposited at higher altitudes by rainfall. So it appears that the main difference between no dams and dams is that the vertical CG of water is held for a longer period of time…until the draw down during dry months, but otherwise the rate of change of the moment is similar during the rain season.

                I see the cause and effect is correlated by data…Im just trying to understand how you visualize the action.

          Hmmn, am concerned that MVB discovered something as long ago as March which could have indicated an accident somewhere in Russia. And today we are not much closer to knowing what happened.

          Hopefully that will change.

          The level of dis-information and lack of information surrounding this are astounding. (But sadly nothing new.)

            In March an ammunition dump was exploded by sabotage in eastern Ukraine:

            Another Ukrainian Ammo Dump Goes Up in Massive Explosion

            Authorities suspect sabotage, probably by drone.
            Sep 27, 2017

            “…The incident is strikingly similar to one that happened last March at another ammo dump at Balakliya, a military base in Eastern Ukraine, and both fit a pattern of attacks going back nearly two years. In October 2015, an explosion at an ammo dump in Svatovo storing 3,000 tons of munitions damaged 1,700 nearby homes. In December 2015, drones dropped 14 thermite grenades on the Balakliya ammo dump but Ukrainian soldiers extinguished the grenades before a catastrophe occurred. Two other attacks on ammo dumps took place in February 2017, and another facility was attacked in March. …”

            • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

              Is it possible that the ammunitions depots are being blown up to distract and cover up nuclear accidents at Mayak or vicinity? Or are nuclear weapons being used to blow up the ammunition depots? Or were their nuclear weapons being stored at the depots? Ukraine used to have nuclear weapons and were supposed to have turned all of them over to Russia. I think there are or have been many missing. Ukraine has many nuclear facilities, nuclear energy plants and uranium processing or reprocessing plants.

                A conventional rocket or shell will do just fine.

                And this stuff does make small amounts of radiation when it burns as most unstable materials do… Even coal fired power plants produce radiation and mercury all by themselves…

                Pure elementary physics tells the truth on that fairy tale… The sheer weight of Plutonium (and the other materials that make up a nuclear bomb) makes lead seem like the weight of a birds feather.

        The problems with nuclear killing people and the world continue for a million years and keep getting exponentially worse every year because there is no way to contain nuclear pollution.

        Even in a single nuclear power plant, radiation is coming out into the environment, air, water, soil) every day, and huge amounts come out when whenever the Russians mining in Wyoming, they are destroying our country as well. They destroyed San Onofre Nuclear energy reactors with MOX experiments. MOX contains plutonium which is even moe volatile that uranium. At Rocky Flats, the plutonium pit production plant in Colorado, there were fires every day and at last 2 criticalities. And the waste is still there, just as much as before the cleanup, at Rocky Flats, and they are building houses on the nuclear dump site to make money, but also to fool people into believing that nuclear radiation is safe.

    Amid Russian Denials, Greenpeace Demands Probe into Source of Nuclear Radiation https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/11/21/amid-russian-denials-greenpeace-demands-probe-source-nuclear-radiation

    Kremlin admits detecting increased radioactivity but denies that Mayak plant, the scene of earlier disaster, is the source

    by Julia Conley, staff writer

    Greenpeace called for an investigation on Tuesday into the possible concealment of a nuclear incident in southern Russia, after Russian meteorologists confirmed on Tuesday that they recorded a rise in radiation coming from the Urals region in late September. The spike in radioactive ruthenium-106 isotopes coincided with a radioactive cloud that formed over much of Europe—but a reprocessing plant denied any involvement.

    "An emergency discharge of ruthenium could be connected with the process of nuclear waste vitrification. Another possibility is that materials containing ruthenium-106 were placed in a metal remelting furnace. Both these activities take place in the Rosatom complex at Mayak," said Greenpeace in a statement.

    The environmental group's Russian arm demanded that Russia's nuclear agency conduct "an in-depth inquiry and publish the results about the incidents at Mayak." Greenpeace also called for an examination into whether officials had been sufficiently transparent "and whether public health around a possible release of ruthenium 106-was sufficiently protected."

  • Really doubt it's a cloud of Ru 106 as its a medical isotope used to kill cancer cells with radiation so I can't see it produced in amounts so large to produce a radio active cloud all over Europe. But who has equipment that can identify single isotopes? Only government army and maybe universities. So easy to lie.

  • Easy to blame the Russians but who knows? Many western citizens are jaded in regards to the possibility of an honest politician. Sure you can measure radiation with any number of personal Geiger counters available and possibly find safety during a radio active emergency but it's necessary to decipher what mix of decaying isotopes are creating the radiation to deduce the source. If you happen to have fifty grand doing nothing for you and further have the technical knowledge from higher education to operate said equipment, I say go for it.
    At that point you might even be able to test food. And seafood. Take care, Friends

    Finds of Radioactive Steel on the Rise in Germany

      Co 60 was found in the contaminated tissue boxes at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. The levels of Co 60 were really high. The person from the State of CA who took measurements found the very high Co 60 levels soon as he stepped inside the door of the store. Yikes.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Met him because we had some ceramic water crocks we thought might be contaminated. He said the Co 60 in the tissue boxes were definitely hazardous.. He was surprised to find the high readings as soon as he entered the store.

        How and why does this kind of thing happen?

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          We discussed here several years ago the DOE will allow some metals contaminated with "low level radiation" to be incorporated into consumer goods. Lovely.

          140 million tons annually, or something like that. (My numbers may be off.)

          https://consortiumnews.com/2013/02/04/recycling-radioactive-metals-disputed/

          To be allowed to be used in zippers, jewelry, belt buckles, etc. Guard the family jewels, friends.

          “ This Draft PEA for the Recycling of Scrap Metals Originating from Radiological Areas analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with resuming the clearance of scrap metal, originating from DOE radiological areas, for recycling pursuant to improved procedures designed to assure that clearance for release is limited to metals meeting stringent criteria.”

          Translated from the bureaucratese, this is a proposal to lift a ban on recycling radioactive metals left over from American bomb-making and other nuclear activities and allow them to be used commercially with “stringent” but largely unenforceable criteria for their use. The initial ban was ordered in 2000, by then Secretary of Energy Bill Richardson.

          Largely ignored by mainstream media, the plan caught the attention of an alert member of Congress, Rep. Edward Markey, D-Massachusetts, who wrote a three-page letter to Energy Secretary Steven Chu on Jan. 11, beginning:

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            (cont.) “I write to convey my grave concerns regarding your December 2012 proposal to rescind the agency-wide suspension of the release of radioactively contaminated scrap metal from Department of Energy (DOE) facilities for purposes of recycling it into consumer products that could ultimately by utilized by pregnant women, children or other vulnerable populations. This proposal is unwise, and should be immediately abandoned.”

            Although Rep. Markey was writing on the date of the original deadline, the Energy Department had invited the public to respond to an email address that was non-functional during the first nine days of the response period, Dec. 12-20. On Dec. 28, the department announced in the Federal Register that the comment period was extended to Feb. 11.

            On Jan. 16, while taking note of Markey’s letter, the Wall Street Journal covered the story by starting this way: ”The Department of Energy is proposing to allow the sale of tons of scrap metal from government nuclear sites, an attempt to reduce waste that critics say could lead to radiation-tainted belt buckles, surgical implants and other consumer products.

            “The approximately 14,000 tons of metal under review for possible initial release is only a fraction of the tens of millions of tons of metal recycled annually, it said. Smaller amounts could be eligible for release in future years. Selling the metals could bring in $10 million to $40 million a year, the DOE estimates.”

      If the accident supposedly happened in September, and a cloud of radiation was observed on November 9, what might that tell us?

      First, it appears there has not just been an "accident" or a one-time release of radiation.

      What happened prior to this so-called "cloud" being measured? Have the high levels of contamination been present since September? (And what has happened since this story came out?)

      It's really odd that there were no reports about an accident in September – until November. And then the discussion centers around what has "just" been found.

    Let's see… Fukushima released 100,000,000 times normal.

    Russian watchdog finds no excess radiation levels at nuclear facility in Urals

    "The levels of the ruthenium-106 activity registered in Europe varied in a broad range of 10 mcBq (microbecquerels) to 100 mBq (millibecquerels) per cubic meter of the air, with the highest level of 145 mBq per cubic meter registered on September 30, 2017 in Bucharest," Rostekhnadzor said.

    Russia’s Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Rosgidromet) earlier reported about excessive ruthenium isotope levels in the samples collected from the observation posts of Argayash and Novogorny in the Chelyabinsk Region. It followed from Rosgidromet’s report that the ruthenium levels in the samples collected from these stations measured 76,100 and 52,300 microbecquerels per cubic meter, which exceeded the background of the previous month by 986 and 440 times and corresponded to the level of "extremely high contamination."

    Russian nucleal accidents not unique..or the potential for them..note that JAPCO, one of Japans nuclear energy companys,was just discovered to have SPENT all its funds needed for decommissioning and safety upgrades on its ageing reactors(1,6 Billion) on BUILDING two new reactors!!! So they have no running nuclear plants due to lack of upgrades..and the issues of earthquake faults running under their plants. So shut down until safety upgrades, NO money left for those upgrades and NO MONEY left for decommissioning, no ability to borrow operating capital..between a rock and a hard spot. Welcome to the new world of nuclear plant decommissioning funny money. Is anyone in the USA listening..I am sure this is NOT unique. Wonder how much money Russian has stockpiles for decommissioning..or the USA. Am sure funds have been 'tapped' with a payback scheme (ponzi?) used to explain away the danger issue.

      Are you a proponent of the flat earth theory? Considering your background, it seems unlikely you would be, yet you have flat earth videos. Next stop; Mandela!

      Concerning the horizon curvature, some people arent aware there is a difference between different camera lenses; the wide angle gives a fish eye effect and unnatural appearance of curvature.

      Relatively speaking, if the earth was represented by a three foot diameter beach ball, the space station would be about an inch above the surface. Still, the curve is quite visible…if you held a yardstick in front of you at arms length, the horizon of earth would bulge about 2 3/4 inches. High altitude balloons only reach 1/10 the height of the space station

        The one time someone was on stilts looking over the fence, that person was not a tranny, but someone in a silicone face mask on stilts.

        The last week or two, the stalking has stopped, but not the attacks on this website. I guess someone doesn't want to hear a whistle.

        The credit card incident, the 5 foot person had his hand one inch from mine and said he would put the credit card into the machine for me. Still an incident of stalking and aggression and disrespect. A respectful person would have asked if I wanted help. He wouldn't have insulted me. Such disrespect is disgusting and my neighbor said that it is an assault.

Again we relate to it because of some common aspirations, experiences. Music is an abstract language. Did you listen to the Planets by Holst or La Mer by Debussy? Pure abstract sonic paintings…no lyrics.

That kind of stuff comes out of our generation. Dawn is a feeling…the life was a little symphony, our little minds and hearts pulled this way and that

                    Maybe on some meta level its true, all experience in the cosmos is joined into one mega symphony, with a conscious factor that transcends time and space.

    Although we are led to believe by the auto and petroleum industries that we will be happier if we get in a car, or off road motor cycle and drive somewhere, in the long run it's not true. You may find a temporary rush as the wind blows through your thinning hair and the scenery goes by filled with solar radiation management trails, but eventually you turn of the motor and there you are. Nothing has really changed except you've managed to forget your problem for a while and you've added to the pollution of the planet and helped to enrich those in power.

    True happiness is achieved by doing what's best for the planet. It may not be as exhilarating and as fast acting as pulling into a triple overhead barrel on your petroleum bases surfboard, but in the long run true happiness will be achieved because we are in harmony with our environs and not creating a future with more toxins.

    The fewer toxins our organisms have to deal with, the healthier we and all other living things will be. When we are healthier we are happier. It has a cascading effect and the possibilities are limitless. Everything we do matters. It's like the butterfly flapping it's wings in China causing a tornado in Oklahoma. We create our future right here in the present. Everything is important.

    I respectfully ask Gasser not to drive around in his camper truck and off road on his motor cycle. We have enough pollution here already. Please find a way to be "happy" without poisoning me.

      Exactly the way I feel.
      Repeat similar sentiments. Extract from ECRR 2010:
      UN Declaration of Human Rights where Article 3 states: ‘Everyone has the right to life, liberty and the security of the person’. Although it has yet to be tested in court, there seems a strong prima facie case that contamination of citizens’ bodies with nuclear waste represents an unacceptable threat to the security of the person, and is therefore illegal under international law. From a rights perspective, in order for the nuclear industry to continue to operate legally, all those who might potentially be contaminated would have to be accurately informed about the true risks to their health from such nuclear processes, and would have to agree that the processes should continue. Not only nuclear but also any poisoning, like fossil fuel generated or by forest destruction and dams. In fact modern civilization is guilty in being a cause of the sixth extinction. In the context of the present discussion, the risk by dams is deterministic as I have shown. It is necessary that discussers here must ask for revision of modern to normal which accepts true knowledge not imperfect and false knowledge, the hall-mark of modern civilization(mc). Even after the interconnections of the various parts of mc are made clear p[eople speak of cost benefit of dams and find the risk acceptable. It is totally unacceptable, applying the precautionary principle.

    Signaled by time, decrepit toes the line
    Oblivious to sign O sinks by design
    Devious to find the crux of thy pine
    The board to dine O shall be no crime
    Still a thousand times, payed in baby slime

    No Safe Dose of Radioactive Ruthenium 106; Increased Dose is Increased Risk; Even the US NRC Knows That It Is Toxic https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2017/11/22/no-safe-dose-of-radioactive-ruthenium-106-increased-dose-is-increased-risk-even-the-us-nrc-knows-that-it-is-toxic/

    Ruthenium 106 is both a chemical and radiological hazard.

    With a half-life of over one year, Ruthenium 106 will stay radioactive in the environment for well over a decade.

    With an average half-life in the body of over 100 days, it will stay radioactive in the body for years, continuing to shoot out ionizing radiation, some of which will cause damage which may lead to cancer or other health problems.

    Here a combination of exposure level, random chance, and immune system apparently come into play in determining the outcome.

    Clustered DNA damage is uniquely caused by ionizing radiation and nearly impossible to correctly repair, and one must then hope that the body will simply destroy/clean-up any serious damage.

    This is really screwed up. Where the hell was the
    thermal discharge going?

    Why are they hiding it among trees?

    Where did all the other trees go?

    The discovery of an active fault line running beneath the facility led to the closure of its most productive reactors in 1977.

      They were pumping radioactive shit into the ground. FOR 20 FCKING YEARS?

      Water from the Inyan Kara aquifer may require treatment for gross alpha radiation..? From Solar radiation?

      OR THIS

      40..thats right..40 fcking % of Cali drinking wateris radioactive.

      Most of the radioactivity in groundwater comes from decay of naturally occurring isotopes of uranium and thorium that are present in minerals in the aquifer. In the Coachella study area, radioactive constituents were detected at concentrations above benchmarks in 4% of the primary aquifers, and at moderate concentrations in 10%.
      Six radioactive constituents were analyzed; of these, uranium and gross alpha radioactivity were detected at concentrations above benchmarks.

      NUCLEAR LYING BASTARDS & POLITICAL KISS-ASSERS

      THIS WATER, MOST OF IT, IS CONTAMINATED BY NUCLEAR FACILITIES INJECTING LEGACY WASTE UNDERGROUND..I.E.:

      Vallecitos Nuclear Center

      Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

      They know they are slowly killing people and they go back with no interest for the people, just saving their immoral jobs.

    Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

    One of the MOST CONTAMINATED IN AMERICA

    "Cold murderers would be the least to call them".

    Overall, the Bay Area has been the dumping ground of about 1 million curies (measurement of radioactive material) from the nuclear weapons in the Lab since it opened in 1952, according to initial estimates. One million curies are the rough equivalent of the amount of radiation dumped by the Hiroshima atomic bomb.

    In the '60s and '70s, the Lab handed out plutonium-contaminated sludge to Livermore residents as compost for their lawns and gardens.

    There is no public record to indicate where the sludge resides now and what dangers it poses to humans.

    More To Die – Livermore
    Open Air Radiation Explosions

    In a truly bizarre development, the Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, in Livermore, California, has gotten underway even larger nuclear radiation open air explosive detonations at "Site 300" near Tracy, California.

    Tracy is on the South end of the Bay Area. The High Explosive detonations are to widely distribute radioactive poison gas [uranium oxide gas and aerosols] over the unsuspecting seven million residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, water supplies, buildings, animals, food crops and plants of every variety.

    In 2007, they were begging for they to stop..

    Yeah, the radiation is high, but the real problem is finding a date. http://www.vagabondish.com/female-foreign-japan/ and shopping. 'an milking the goats.

    I think really we all need to start national stare-down-a-reactor day. Thousands of people could show up and glare at them. Bill it as a dating event.
    Go hang out the reactor and there's a good chance you will get f****d

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    …unless you are a nun. They arrest nuns and throw them in cold dungeons, that's how the nukers play that.

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    … or just turn nukes off in your browser settings. Don't know why I didn't think of that before. Would have saved me a lot of time and trouble. Adjusting the half-life effects, too. Damn. That was easy. Shit I had the tons a day set to 300. I'm a dumbass

    Gasser,

    I have ditched my car. So enjoy the bike riding. Everyone needs food water and shelter, but can we at least find ways to have "fun" that doesn't kill ourselves and poison the planet. Is that unreasonable? It is possible to enjoy life without burning petroleum. Man lived for thousands of years without petroleum. Was he any less "happy?"

    I know it seems useless to think that anything we do can have an effect and that I shouldn't get mega-serious because it's hopeless. Is it any less hopeless and useless as thinking that by data mining and posting on an anti-nuclear website that humans are going to stop the mining and processing of uranium to boil water and keep the peace?

      curly, mah-man, you're unknowing being Hippocratic, by proxy, I dare to say, them groceries you're walking to get to eating to survive are gas/diesel truck delivered to the market, the fuel you use for heating and electricity is a product of fuel delivery service in one form or the other.

      I see you're hugging a tree as the lumber jacks have their chains saws at work with only inches left before the tree falls, but you won't look or get down thinking you're gonna save that tree from turning into lumber that your house and furniture is made of for your comfort to sit at your industrial pollution derived made computer you use to try and cover you seemingly blind Hippocratic innocents, there has not been a pollution free Saint in all of mankind ever, prehistoric man burned wood for warmth and cooking as some still do today.

        My small Earth foot print> for 40 years I have not plugged into the grid even to this day, (solar panels),

        I have not had a phone for 30 years.

        I don't have a refrigerator, I learned to live without one of them energy suckers.

        My hot water is Solar heated via a 100 foot coil of 2" black Pollybuytle tubing, my shower is out doors so no harsh chemicals are needed to keep a shower clean stall.

        I have an organic garden mounted on a single 6" post up off the ground, it's 14' diameter trade wind powered spinning Lazy Susan garden, that holds 35, 4 gallon grow pots, no pesticides needed, because insects and slugs that carry the devastating brain parasite called 'Rat lung' disease can't get up to the veggies because the center post is greased, nor will flying insects land, because it's always in circular motion…it's a one of a kind prolific producing garden.

          My old rusty 4 cylinder 1986 small Isuzu pup, pick up truck, I no longer have, ran on supplemental Hydrogen gas for 4 years, I made in a 5 gal bucket mounted in the bed for a 5 mpg gain @ 31 mpg…in experimenting making Hydrogen gas, via electrolysis in a Baking Soda and piss solution, I had two of them dangerously blow up and one catch on fire over the years, so I ditched that effort, it wasn't worth me or someone else being injured for the 5 mpg gain.

          Also, I have not set foot off the Big Island for 30 years, so that means I have not contributed to polluting the air by flying in a Jet anywhere…can you match me or pass me in less pollution in your life time?
