    Forget Mayan 2012 prediction, expert says the world ends in 500 millio

    n years

    By Terri Theodore, The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – 13 hours ago

    Goldblatt believes a “runaway greenhouse” effect will be the true end to life on Earth.

    He will present his theory, The Physics and Chemistry of the Apocalypse: Runaway Greenhouses, during a seminar at the University on Tuesday.

    When the Earth was formed, the sun was about 30 per cent less bright than it was now and as it gets brighter, the Earth’s atmosphere will become “optically thick,” he said.

    It means, Goldblatt said, that only the top of the atmosphere can radiate head out into space, while Earth’s surface gets very hot.

    RED ALERT!!! ((Cross thread multi-posting))

    You hit it on the head here everyone.

    James2, you have been alerted all this time for good reason brother. Follow your heart.

    Nuckelchen, you too have done exceptional work keeping our eyes focused on this.

    We have all been feeling it.

    Just in: Nightmare in Japan!!!

    Earthquake very recently on the first of January has caused the tank on the number four spent fuel pool to crack and the rods to bounce around causing a meltdown. There is no water in the cooling pool according to reports coming in.

    Fukushima province is being evacuated and this is why we are seeing so many people and vehicles headed up there. It is a NATIONAL EMERGENCY NOW there and no one is talking about it except for here on EneNews.


    People in Tokyo MUST get out before the stampede!


    We all have been feeling this and pointing something out for weeks and now we are being confirmed that there is an ONGOING EVENT HAPPENING NOW!!! Number four spent fuel pool is in meltdown and it is most likely going to crash and burn unless Mighty Mouse shows up real quick to stop it.

    We must all know now that the highs and lows we have been monitoring and measuring are REAL and VERY DANGEROUS and there is a lot more going up into the atmosphere RIGHT NOW. We are talking plutonium, the real deal!!!

    Heads up everyone who has a counter. REPORT YOUR READINGS ON THE PERMANENT RADIATION REPORTING THREAD MORE OFTEN PLEASE. Two times a day will allow us to track patterns in the jet stream. This is a community event. Get jiggity people!! Heads up to the skies to watch the jet stream above you and please also report your data on the PRRT because we also now find out that there is plutonium going up there and worse. What goes up, must come down. Watch closely the winds…

  • Why did you write “Scorched Earth”?
    I have been working on the Agent Orange issue—that is, chemical warfare in Vietnam—since 1980. I have also been teaching courses on the Vietnam War for thirty years, and talking to anybody and everybody who is willing to listen about what the U.S. did to the Vietnamese people and the environment. All these years later we have not apologized to the Vietnamese, and we mistreated our own veterans, refusing to acknowledge that they were sick and dying from something, which I believed very early on was their exposure to Agent Orange. I felt if I could show that the Vietnamese were suffering from the same kind of illnesses that vets were suffering from, that I could make the case that anyone exposed gets sick and often dies an early, painful death.

  • *PIC* Deformed fish found in lake downstream from oilsands
    The fish are hard to look at.
    One whitefish has a golfball-sized tumour bulging from its side. Another is simply missing part of its spine, its tail growing from a stumpy rear end.
    One has no snout. Another is coloured a lurid red instead of a healthy cream. Others are covered with lesions and still others are bent and crooked from deformed vertebrae.
    All were taken from Lake Athabasca, …–deformed-fish-found-in-lake-downstream-from-oilsands
