    Wasn’t a squirrel. One of the lab techs left a bullshit detector plugged in. When EPA and LANL announced that their Gamma detectors didn’t find any Alpha emitters, it exploded.

        It’s true, the slimey buggars have been shutting down nuke plants all over the place. But, Jerry has other tricks up his sleeve.

        (I think warming oceans produce more of them).

        Eventually, we’ll have to take a look at the old wisdom – a much closer look – especially in regards to sustainability of ecosystems.

        Our technological “brilliance” is killing us.

        Mother Earth, and all her creatures, are groaning in pain.

          Same wave length. That’s why I earlier alluded to the jellyfish shutting a nuke plant as a manifestation of “Intelligent Design,” but not in the way the fundies mean it.

          Rather: If we humans continue to refuse to see the “Evolutionary Imperative” and adapt the changes required — then the “Intelligent design,” the “Divine Wisdom” of nature, the laws of nature, the laws of physics, science, and all that is true will rise up in the form of whatever it takes — fire, flood, tsunami, earthquake, squirrels, jellyfish and all — to show us mercifully what is needed before it is too late~! Or even after it is too late! ~~~

            Eventually this comes into timeout = dimension wiped out = eternity to think wht one did.

            For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

      This could start a new trend of blaming false flag events on various wildlife and or plant life entities. And the American people will believe it, and become afraid of Nature as well as Muslims.

    I was looking at the hires photo’s of Fukushima after the explosions the other day, and was zooming in on areas.

    I had to capture these two zooms of #3.

    We can’t post pics here so I posted them to http://www.datafilehost.com

    The first, gofh.jpg, is of the area just right of where the main reactor is/was…

    the second, bofh.jpg is directly over where the SFP is/was…

    I call the first, “The Gates of Hell.”
    The second is “The Bowels of Hell.”

    It REALLY was a squirrel – and to make it worse, it was an illegal immigrant squirrel that the coyotes brought over from Mexico, maybe even a terrorist squirrel with incendiary devices tucked in its cheeks!

      The squirrel obviously was, as Sen McCain says, setting fires to send messages to its compatriot coyote & squirrel illegal immigrants friends.

    On the serious side, having declared the state of emergency over, it may be premature to “pull resources from LANL and re-assign elsewhere”

    They really cannot believe it is time to pull resources.

    The weather channel says there will be various types of thunderstorms and lightning at least until the 11th.

    . . . squirrels – whatever next?

    Recently in North of Germany two crows (doing whatever crows do near electrified railway lines) were blamed for bringing a railway network to a standstill. Unfortunately the birds were burned to a crisp.

    An interesting point is that the Chernobyl sarcophagus is now full of holes and many birds, as well as the rain, are entering it. Of course the deadly Red Forest of Pripjat is one of the most radioactive places on earth so it’s a dilemma for our feathered friends and the local squirrels.

    I wouldn’t normally say an acre was a ‘small fire’ – a soccer field is 2.5 acres – it’s nearly one half of a soccer field! However, in this case, it’s a small fire relatively speaking.

        It just occurred to me that most of the organizations listed above by Beta Flare..have websites,email contacts etc…
        Let’s write to all of them.
        Send them the link here…
        Then it can’t be said they didn’t receive the word to REPENT.

          Yes, the shameful fools diggin their own graves.

          The e-mails wont help but will work as evidence when books are opened, every deed and thought inspected… according the very same scriptures which foresaw current global burnup:

          ” The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
          And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
          And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
          And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
          And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

      Friendly suggestion:

      Maybe map this stuff out before deciding to what degree to be freaking out about sensationalistic stories such as this one; keep in mind that this video clip is from Mainstream Media (MSM), which garners its funding through ads / viewership numbers. More sensationalism = more viewers = more ad money.

      Here’s a screen grab from my Google Earth program, showing the current and recent fire situations around Los Alamos, and the relative positions of the Nuclear Lab and Tech Area 21.

      If you’re interested in doing your own pre-freaking-out homework in the future,

      (1) Get Google Earth http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html and learn how to use it.

      (2) Download (and install by double-clicking) the Google Earth KML (plug-in) for “Fire Detections: Current” (or download the entire “AFM KML Bundle: Current” if you want more toys) from http://activefiremaps.fs.fed.us/googleearth.php .

      (3) Google around to determine locations of places such as Tech Area 21, and set push-pins for them, as I did in the above-linked photo.

      ‘hope this helps.

        neminis,
        thanks for the tool. So I can just go have some post-freaking-out..

        You’re right about MSM/ads/views though.

        thank you for the Google map. The program won’t run well on this computer.
        While I’m certainly not freaking out, I do recall that one fireman said the fire could burn ‘indefinitely’ and involve a hundred thousand acres. So lots of little things they buried out there, or didn’t store well enough, might make their presences known.

      Your youtube link is bad — it goes to the youtube member’s home page. Home page “featured” videos can change over time, and, it just so happens that this member has changed his featured video since you posted.

      Here’s the direct link to the video you were trying to reference:

      The report on HP is to drown out the report I posted on another thread here. The report I posted said that the old leaking pipes and the earthquake caused the meltdown even without the tsunami, calling into question all of Japan’s reactors. REPOST:

      Meltdown: What Really Happened at Fukushima?
      http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2011/07/meltdown-what-really-happened-fukushima/39541/
      “It’s been one of the mysteries of Japan’s ongoing nuclear disaster: How much of the damage did the March 11 earthquake inflict on Fukushima Daiichi’s reactors in the 40 minutes before the devastating tsunami arrived? The stakes are high: If the quake alone structurally compromised the plant and the safety of its nuclear fuel, then every other similar reactor in Japan is at risk….”
      “But what if recirculation pipes and cooling pipes, burst, snapped, leaked, and broke completely after the earthquake — long before the tidal wave reached the facilities, long before the electricity went out? This would surprise few people familiar with the 40-year-old Unit 1, the grandfather of the nuclear reactors still operating in Japan….”
      “’I personally saw pipes that came apart and I assume that there were many more that had been broken throughout the plant. There’s no doubt that the earthquake did a lot of damage inside the plant,’ he said. ‘There were definitely leaking pipes, but we don’t know which pipes – that has to be investigated. I also saw that part of the wall of the turbine building for Unit 1 had come away. That crack might have affected the reactor.’…”
      “’It felt like the earthquake hit in two waves, the first impact was so intense you could see the building shaking, the pipes buckling, and within minutes, I saw pipes bursting. Some fell off the wall. Others snapped. I was pretty sure that some of the oxygen tanks stored on site had exploded….”
      “’there’s been an explosion of some gas tanks in reactor one, probably the oxygen tanks. In addition to this there has been some structural damage, pipes have burst, meltdown is possible. Please take shelter immediately.’….”
      “’To pump seawater into the core is to destroy the reactor. The only reason you’d do that is no other water or coolant was available.’….”
      “Problems with the fractured, deteriorating, poorly repaired pipes and the cooling system had been pointed out for years…..”
      “In September of 2002, TEPCO admitted to covering up data concerning cracks in critical circulation pipes in addition to previously revealed falsifications. In their analysis of the cover-up, The Citizen’s Nuclear Information Center writes: ‘The records that were covered up had to do with cracks in parts of the reactor known as recirculation pipes…. Cracks were found in the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant, reactor one, reactor two, reactor three, reactor four, reactor five.’ The cracks in the pipes were not due to earthquake damage; they came from the simple wear and tear of long-term usage…..”
      “The report said there might have been pre-tsunami damage to key facilities including pipes. ‘This means that assurances from the industry in Japan and overseas that the reactors were robust is now blown apart,’ said Shaun Burnie, an independent nuclear waste consultant. ‘It raises fundamental questions on all reactors in high seismic risk areas.’….”

    Mandatory evac order (but voluntary evac order remains) for the town of Los Alamos has been lifted and folks (about 10,000)) are filling the highway returning home.

    Also the air quality alert has been lifted, in part due to rain yesterday. More rain expected tonight.

  • Curious about how people are feeling, and thoughts about facing what some see as certain death.

    I’ll put this link in – a cello player who knew her time was coming up. But, look at how she saw that “light” coming down the road, the way she handled it all and somehow subsumed it into something unimaginably beautiful:

    Not sure if this’ll register with the rock and roll crowd (I’m trained in classical flute) but, worth listening to. To think, some people are busy dreaming up ways of annihilating millions, and others ….

    Elgar Cello Concerto 1st mov.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5C99JyP2ns

    Jacqueline Mary du Pré OBE (26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987) was a British cellist, acknowledged as one of the greatest players of the instrument. She is particularly associated with Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E Minor; her interpretation of that work has been described as “definitive” and “legendary.”

    Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to cease performing at the age of 28, and led to her premature death.

    Following her death, her older sister Hilary du Pré and younger brother Piers wrote a book about their family life, A Genius in the Family. It was the basis for the film Hilary and Jackie.

      Pu,
      wow. Too bad I’ve only my laptop sound here, but even that was breathtaking. Maybe hard to imagine for you, but i didn’t know her. She really looks as if her instrument was a part of herself / her body. Thanks for sharing!

    not just nuts my friend.
    i was talking to ron paul last week and he is very worried about the gold in fort knox.
    i told him that agent ss (secret squirrel) had spent years cracking the fort knox nut and poor ron freaked out.
    kept going on about stuff like evidence and squirrel to gold weight ratios.
    i said ron deal with it it’s all gone the gold has just gone.

    he has now asked for an audit.
    when they open those giant doors all they are going to see is nut shells,urine and a ton of squirrel shit.
