Public Release from Goldschmidt Conference, Jun 26, 2016 (emphasis added): New research shows that most of the radioactive fallout which landed on downtown Tokyo a few days after the Fukushima accident was concentrated and deposited in non-soluble glass microparticles, as a type of ‘glassy soot’. This meant that most of the radioactive material was not dissolved in rain and running water… The particles also concentrated the radioactive caesium (Cs), meaning that in some cases dose effects of the fallout are still unclear… Japanese geochemists… analysed samples collected from within an area up to 230 km from the FDNPP… [I]t had been anticipated that most of the radioactive fallout would have been flushed from the environment by rainwater. However… most of the radioactive caesium in fact fell to the ground enclosed in glassy microparticles… [T]hese particles… formed during the molten core-concrete interaction inside the primary containment vessel in the Fukushima reactor units 1 and/or 3. Because of the high Cs content in the microparticles, the radioactivity per unit mass was as high as ~4.4×10^11 Bq/g [440,000,000,000,000 Bq/kg]… Analysis from several air filters collected in Tokyo on 15 March 2011 showed that 89% of the total radioactivity was present as a result of these caesium-rich microparticles, rather than the soluble Cs, as had originally been supposed.

Discovery (Seeker), Jun 27, 2016: Fukushima Accident Rained Glass Particles on Tokyo… Most of the radioactive fallout that descended upon downtown Tokyo in the days after the March 2011 accident [was] glass microparticles — essentially, glass-filled soot. As a result, the fallout, which contained concentrated radioactive cesium, wasn’t dissolved by rainfall, and probably lingered in the environment… Japanese scientists thought that most of it would be washed away by rainwater. Instead, analysis… revealed that most of the radioactive cesium in fact fell to the ground enclosed in glassy microparticles.

ANI, Jun 28, 2016: Research indicates Fukushima radioactive fallout may be worse than expected Most of the radioactive fallout, which landed on downtown Tokyo a few days after the Fukushima accident, was concentrated and deposited in non-soluble glass microparticles, as a type of ‘glassy soot’

Inverse, Jun 26, 2016: Radioactive “Glassy Soot” Fell Over Tokyo After the Fukushima Meltdown… The findings… show that the radioactive fallout… has been poorly understood. Previously, it was assumed that most of the radiation that fell dissolved in rain. This would mean that it would wash out of the soil and through the environment… These tiny glass particles entered the air and fell as soot on the surrounding region. Because the radioactive molecules are contained in an insoluble medium, they will not wash out of the soil with rainwater to the same extent… Beyond the consequences for the environment, there are significant consequences for human health. Breathing caesium encased in glass particles may have a very different impact from exposure to it as radioactive rain…

Scientists from Fukushima Univ., Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Stanford Univ., etc, June 2016: Cesium-rich micro-particles unveil the explosive events in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant — Cesium-rich micro-particles (CsMPs) retain novel information on the molten core-concrete interaction… CsMPs specimens were discovered… in atmospheric particulates collected at Suginami, Tokyo… [Note: "The author has requested that this abstract is not discussed on social media."]

Dr Satoshi Utsunomiya, Kyushu Univ.: “This work changes some of our assumptions about the Fukushima fallout… This may mean that our ideas of the health implications should be modified“.

Prof. Bernd Grambow, Director of SUBATECH laboratory, France: “[The observations] presented here are extremely important. They may change our understanding of the mechanism of long range atmospheric mass transfer of radioactive caesium from the reactor accident at Fukushima to Tokyo, but they may also change the way we assess inhalation doses from the caesium microparticles inhaled by humans. Indeed, biological half- lives of insoluble caesium particles might be much larger than that of soluble caesium“.

            Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curium is free and from "– one tonne of spent nuclear fuel contains about 20 grams of curium." and the fact that 660 tons of fuel is missing I can deduce that the paper is not worth $40.

        On the "forgotten radionuclides": Unfortunately, our bodies do not "forget." They do their harm even if we do not know their names or how much we are being bombarded with. Us, we still haven't a clue what attacked our colons both on exactly the same day, several days following WIPP in New Mexico. We moved a few months later on, but the damage continues and we have NO answers. Maybe we should poke around into the "forgotten radionuclides" list, but would not even have a clue where to start! Every now and then connection are made, like yytritium-90 is apparently what attacks the pancreas. We still don't know what attacks the colon. We consider it a criminal assault, but beyond that, we are left in the dark.

    "Valentin Borisevich, former head of the laboratory of the Institute of Nuclear Energy at the Belarusian Academy of Sciences, describes the period as being obsessed with "the cult of physics." So much so that even "when Chernobyl blew up, it took a long time to part with that cult."

    For Soviet Russia, science, and specifically atomic energy, was a magical salve for perceived slights from the West, and an endlessly renewable source of hope. The unilateral faith in the authority of the atom was a product of its being ingrained in the basic aspirations of Russian nationalism. "The history of the atom," Borisevich expands, "it's not just a military secret and a curse. It's also our youth, our era, our religion."

    The administrative response to Chernobyl easily and rightly earns our censure. But it should also invoke in us a desire to expand on our own perspectival limitations. The Gorbachev government refused, and indeed was ideologically predisposed not to accept, the fact that they had created a toxic landscape. Our task should always be to understand what we fail to see."

    "The oldest mention of a horned deity starts with Nimrod, El, and Moloch. These somewhat-interchangeable deities were thought to be depicted as either a single or double horned-god who was worshipped in the Bronze Ages of Mesopotamian culture. He was one of multiple gods in these ancient Pagan cultures that we see the Canaanites, Sumerians, Phoenicians, Assyrians, and Babylonians devoting much energy and bloodshed.

    They were worshipping this deity to the point of sacrificing their own children (although some argue there is no definitive evidence of this, while others claim a counter-conspiracy cover-up of the disturbing practice). These ancient cultures believed that sacrificing their infants would appease the deity and they would in return have financial blessings, more fertility, good fortunes, or any other type of prayer worthy gift. This form of idolatry is what influenced much of the teachings of the Bible (about having false idols and such)."

    "They believed that Moloch would give them financial blessings if they sacrificed their children, and this is believed to continue to this day, as is evident by the startling number of missing children around the world at any given time. A study from 1999 reported that approximately 800,000 children are missing every year in America. 800,000 is an astoundingly high number, that’s about 16,000 per state (if distributed evenly)."

    I don't think I need to remind anyone of the pedophile/child murder scandals in the UK and US, among others.

    Western governments and the biggest corporations are run by people who belief in this shit. The only solace is that not only are they sacrificing us, they are also sacrificing themselves.

    Those of us here that aren't trolls for the Moloch-worshippers will certainly meet on the other side.

One can get rid of any kind of psychological problems, and develop confidence to face any problem in life and can overcome any kind of fear including that of death within 3 months after starting to practice this method. As a result, one will be free from mental disturbances and fear, which will result in a perfect balance of mind.

    VA officials pledge new studies into effects of Agent Orange on vets and their children
    By Mike Hixenbaugh, The Virginian-Pilot,
    Charles Ornstein and Terry Parris Jr., ProPublica
    Jul 1, 2016

    The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is expanding its efforts to determine how Vietnam veterans and their children have been affected by exposure to the herbicide Agent Orange.

    The VA will conduct its first nationwide survey of Vietnam veterans in more than three decades and request an outside panel of experts to continue its work studying the health effects of Agent Orange on veterans, their children and their grandchildren. Both initiatives were discussed Thursday in Washington at a forum hosted by ProPublica and The Virginian-Pilot on the possible multigenerational impacts of Agent Orange.

    Vietnam veterans have argued for years that their exposure to the toxic herbicide has damaged their health as well as their children’s. From 1962 to 1971, some 2.6 million U.S. service members were potentially exposed to Agent Orange, which contained a dangerous strand of the chemical dioxin. While the VA has linked Agent Orange exposure to a host of diseases in Vietnam vets, experts and veterans advocates have criticized the lack of research into the effects on future generations. …

      “I believe that these individuals deserve an answer,” Linda Spoonster Schwartz, the VA’s assistant secretary for policy and planning, said in response to a question about the lack of research. “I believe that we need to at least ask the question. … This is the right thing to do.”

      ProPublica and The Pilot have been examining the effects of Agent Orange for the past year and have heard from more than 5,500 veterans and their families.

      Thursday’s forum – titled “A Toxic Legacy: Has Agent Orange Hurt the Children of Vietnam Vets?” – featured veterans advocates, researchers and policymakers. It also provided a rare opportunity for frustrated veterans to vent directly to high-ranking VA officials.

      Veterans came from as far away as Mississippi and Pennsylvania to share their stories. Pilot photographer Stephen Katz told of his own health problems, which he believes may be linked to his father’s exposure to Agent Orange.

      In one emotional exchange, Reginald Russell Sr., an Army veteran from Suffolk, rose from the audience and accused the VA of ignoring anecdotal evidence that Agent Orange had harmed children of vets.

      Russell’s first son, born shortly after he returned from Vietnam in 1971, died inexplicably at 9 months old. His youngest son, born a few years later with a heart defect, …

      • rogerthat

        died in 2012 at 32.

        Russell held up a photo of a grave marker: “That’s my child,” he said, choking up.

        “I can’t imagine the pain you’re having,” said Schwartz, who joined the VA in 2014 after years spent researching and advocating for Vietnam veterans exposed to Agent Orange. “Let me say that this is a new day. … We can do this study. I know you’ve heard this before, and so have I, but we will do this not just for the ones who have passed away, but for the ones who have yet to be born.”

        A small number of male veterans’ children – those born with spina bifida – are eligible for Agent Orange disability payments from the VA. So are the children of female vets born with about a dozen other defects.

        Although the majority of Vietnam veterans are men, most of the research about the transgenerational effects of Agent Orange has been focused on women, said Dr. Kenneth Ramos, chairman of an Institute of Medicine committee that recently reviewed research on Agent Orange.

        Ramos said scientific evidence increasingly supports the idea that a father’s exposure to toxins can affect his offspring genetically, potentially harming children and grandchildren. But more research needs to be done.

        • rogerthat

          “The scientific studies that have been conducted have not yet provided the evidence,” he said.

          Ramos said he was pleased to learn the agency was launching a nationwide survey.

          Victoria Davey, a senior VA scientist and a lead researcher on the project, said her team would begin mailing questionnaires to randomly selected Vietnam-era veterans in the fall, asking dozens of questions about their health and economic status, as well as the health of their children.

          “The major question in this study is, ‘Am I different?’ ” Davey said. “Is the Vietnam veteran different from the U.S. public and other service members who served at the time” but did not deploy.

          The research will take years, Davey said, but she hopes preliminary results will begin answering the question as early as next year.

          Heather Bowser, co-founder of Children of Vietnam Veterans Health Alliance, said she supports the VA’s efforts but lamented that the work is only now beginning.

          Bowser’s father was exposed to Agent Orange in 1968. A few years later, she was born prematurely, missing a leg, a toe and several fingers. She leads a group of more than 3,700 other children of Vietnam veterans who believe their health has been affected by Agent Orange.

          “I’m 43 years old,” said Bowser, who was on the panel. “How much more time should my family have to wait?”

          One of the challenges of understanding the effects of Agent Orange is the lack of data collected during the war, making it nearly impossible …

            to know if or how much any given veteran was exposed to the toxins. The same is true of Iraq war veterans who may have been exposed to depleted uranium or toxic burn pits.

            Schwartz revealed plans for a pilot program in partnership with the Department of Defense to begin tracking environmental exposures of service members in real time, possibly making it easier in the future to understand how military service affects a veteran’s health.

            As the forum ended, Peter D. Rumm, director of the VA’s pre-9/11-era environmental health program, announced the agency’s intention to ask the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, to conduct another review of Agent Orange research, including a look into the effects on veterans’ children. The request comes months after the IOM wrapped up its 10th and final biennial Agent Orange report.

            Rumm encouraged those in attendance to keep applying pressure.

            “Government reacts,” Rumm said. “Those of you in the field and those of you affected by this, keep pushing, because eventually things will happen.”

    Radioactive waste and the nuclear war on Australia's Aboriginal people
    Jim Green

    1st July 2016

    Australia's nuclear industry has a shameful history of 'radioactive racism' that dates from the British bomb tests in the 1950s, writes Jim Green. The same attitudes persist today with plans to dump over half a million tonnes of high and intermediate level nuclear waste on Aboriginal land, and open new uranium mines. …

    The Platform
    Editorial: Why are service-injured veterans getting the runaround?
    By the Editorial Board Jul 2, 2016

    The time has come. The Pentagon and Department of Veterans Affairs must stop dragging their feet. They must own up to the serious chemical and radioactive hazards that U.S. service members were exposed to in the line of duty. It’s not as if the health damage from such exposure expires once the mission is over.

    As Arla Harrell can attest, a lifetime of suffering can follow an irresponsible sergeant’s or young lieutenant’s order to step forward and serve as a test dummy for a chemical munition.

    In Harrell’s case, it was a mustard gas test conducted at Missouri’s Camp Crowder in the 1940s. Despite the best efforts of Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., to get legislation passed to help make Harrell and other service members whole, the Veterans Administration is fighting her.

    There’s a troubling pattern here. For tens of thousands of Vietnam War veterans, not to mention scores who trained in Panama, Agent Orange is the culprit for enduring problems caused by highly toxic dioxin. …

    … The long succession of stories about veterans sickened during military service, who are repeatedly denied VA health care, strongly suggests the government views them as disposable assets. It’s as if officials prefer that the veterans would just die so their problems will go away.

    Meanwhile, veterans and their families are left to grapple with medical debts often in the tens of thousands of dollars.

    The VA’s and Pentagon’s constant obfuscation, evasion and runarounds are no way to treat those who selflessly answered their nation’s call to duty. Americans owe it to our veterans to speak out.

    They tried to put the big whammy on it today.
    The Pacific is back to normal ..1% above what it was ..however the harbor and the seafloor adjacent to the plant is still highly contaminated.

    Now how can that be ..with 660 tons admitted lost , ground water seeping through an ice wall likened to a bamboo screen?
    In the harbor but not in lapping the waves?
    And the seabed, where a lot of it is, APPROXIMATE,(as in a total meltdown in of unit 2) along with the dumping of damaged rods ..the seabed is HOT, particularly is one assumes the corium slid in that direction. YA, IT'S HOT.

      • obe, after the collapse, and the chaos, something will emerge and a means of exchange that is not based totally on barter will be needed and useful.

        If there is no serious collapse, PM will retain value as "money" is destroyed by out of control spending and full out printing, via inflation and perhaps negative interest rates.

              All people have a religion even the religion of atheism. So get rid of all religions you would have to kill every person on the earth.

                  I agree, DUDe. But eliminating a religion is not really possible. Eliminating all religion is also not possible without eliminating every person on earth. There is no way to live without a belief system.

                  There are so many terrible things going on in the world. And those are the fault of people not making compassion choices. I could fill up whole pages of the incorrect message being preached in many Christian churches. But it is not the fault of the religion, but the religion falsely preached or not followed at all. There are very many Christians extremely concerned about who has taken over many of the Christian churches and preaching and practicing false doctrine. All the former KGB who are not priests in the Russian Orthodox Church are only one example of many. When criminals exploit a religion we should hold the criminals responsible, not every person who professes that religion.

Only one example in the US are all the masons preaching in US Christian churches. Masons are not Christians at all. All the Catholic priests and other Christian pastors of protestant churches who have injured other people with sexual abuse are terrible. Evil can happen in any religion, but it is not the fault of the religion but the fault of the individual who is exploiting the religion for evil purposes. There was a minister thrown out of my own church. I had avoided him myself, but he had slept with women who came for counseling.

                      So what religion is Abe? We have compassion for all the people in Japan suffering because of a government which used nuclear energy. We don't condemn every person who has the same religion as Abe claims, no matter what it is.

                      There are so many people in the world who are agnostic or atheistic, but we don't condemn their religion, but only those people who are hurting others.

                      People can claim a religion but never follow the precepts of that religion.

                      The Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition are both examples of people claiming to be Christians but who were disobedient to the Christian Bible. When they were disobedient to the command not to kill, they were not acting as Christians but as disobedient rebels.

                      All the people in the world are dying now because of nuclear technology and all the other toxins and many are dying of starvation.

                      I think out of compassion that we shouldn't take away the religion of those condemned to die such horrible deaths and those who have to watch their children die. In my opinion, each person should be free to cope with the evil of the world with whatever religion that consoles them.

                      I do believe in condemning individuals who support the nuclear industry and Monsanto and all the toxins destroying the earth.

                      Dante in The Divine Comedy was extremely critical of certain Popes. Yet he also praised those he thought were the great Christian examples and teachers.

                      Two of my heroes are Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer who gave their lives fighting for the rights and lives of others. How can anyone condemn their Christian example and teaching?

                      Religion is simply another tool found in the controllers tool box which is used to help control the minds of whom ever they may need to control at a given time.

                      Religions support the functions of those governments that make the decisions to utilize say Nuclear Power and the building of weapons of mass destruction.

                      If it was not used as a tool as described then none of the above would exist and they all sadly do exist.

                      Religion is less a tool in this country because there is freedom of religion and so many religions.

                      Under the NWO, there will be one made up religion and no one will have a choice, and then certainly religion will be the biggest toolbox to enslave people. Many Christians are being counseled to choose death over that enslavement and that the NWO will make the only 2 options death or change to the new fake enslaving religion.

                      Protestants rebelled against the Catholic Church because it is too dictatorial and too far away from the Bible. Many Catholics convert every year to Protestant churches. Some Protestant churches have no governing body at all. The present government is counting Christians who just follow the Bible terrorists. So it is not a toolbox for enslavement, but an excuse to persecute and kill people.

                      The Communists in Russia destroyed all the churches, so it wasn't a toolbox, but an excuse to kill people.

                      So let me get this straight..you want religion..but you really only like and want your religion. You are not fond of other religions.

                      So you do not like the idea of one religion for the entire world, since your religion is the best one and the constant battles with the other religions that you think are bad are OK with you.

                      So we humans should proceed to kill each other over varied religious concepts and belief systems..got it.

                      I'm trying to watch the video I posted on the NWO.

                      It doesn't matter what I like or don't like. It is impossible to say there should be no religion because every person on the earth has a belief system which is by definition a religion.

                      I think that every belief system should be open to people by free will. I don't believe that an imposed dictatorial religion is really a religion at all, but an enslavement.

                      I believe that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. But I am not God. I'm just an ordinary person.

                      The the imposition of the NWO is coming whether anyone likes it or not. I will refuse to join their religion even if it means that they will kill me, because I prefer eternal life to the NWO enslavement.

                      ""In this context, 'number of species' becomes a deeply unsatisfactory measure of conservation trends, because it does not reflect many important aspects of biodiversity. Achieving a neutral net outcome for species numbers cannot be considered acceptable if weighing wild fauna against relatively homogenous domesticated species. However, considering speciation alongside extinction may well prove important in developing a better understanding of our impact upon global biodiversity. We call for a discussion about what we, as a society, actually want to conserve about nature" says Associate Professor Martine Maron from the University of Queensland.

                      Researchers do agree that current extinction rates may soon lead to a 6th period of mass extinction. Since the last Ice Age, 11.500 years ago, it is estimated that 255 mammals and 523 bird species has gone extinct, often due to human activity. In the same period, humans have relocated almost 900 known species and domesticated more than 470 animals and close to 270 plant species."

                      Yes .. there was evolution long before there was anthropogenic contribution.
                      But as usual Humans plays a part in this, and address the responsibility with denial.

                      I have no hope for the government machine and I am not for or against this machine.

                      I just know when things are really screwed up and out of control.

                      Like when we here all knew what Fukushima really meant when it blew and that this Nuclear Disaster was out of control.

                      There are plenty of good people that will need to get involved and come forward if we want to salvage the future of this our planet.

                      Hopefully they are out there and are tuning in..

                Whether for or against any particular religion..the action taken by the slave master in charge, good or bad, can be considered another tool utilized for better human livestock control.

                Messing with the human livestock mind is what these people do and they do it very well.

                Do I need to post more examples of this religious mind control for you.

                How many examples do you need to see..how many eyes on church walls, soldiers holding hands in prayer before battle or heads being lopped off.

                      Obe's religion: "I am under the impression that this entire universe needs no religion."

                      What are you going to do when the NWO comes and says you have to participate in their organized religion or be killed?

                      There will be no freedom of action in the NWO and you will have to keep your beliefs secret.

                      I will choose to not participate. This is reality.

                      All the insults in the world cannot change reality. And you have no right to force your beliefs on me. And, guess what? God doesn't want any forced conversions. Only free will beliefs are important.

                      So I can pray that you will find your eternal salvation. But your free will is more important. Why can't you extend free will to me? Why in your world do you have to force your beliefs onto me and the rest of the world? I think all your arguments are in favor of the NWO. Why can't you speak out against the NWO instead of just making illogical arguments based on name calling?

                      You would like the video I posted on the NWO. I'm at hour 1, and they been spending must time on 9/11 and continuing on. You would love to rehear the conspiracy theories and how NWO Bush is terrible.

                      Personally, I'm voting for Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party.

                      I just got back from a food bank, and I have another to go which was closed yesterday. I don't take much from each one, but have to go often to different food banks to eat vegan and raw.

                      I think I'm going to quote from my dissertation a few times, since no one is going to read it.

                      It really doesn't matter to me how many times I'm devalued for being a Christian.

                      Politicians claim to be Christians to get elected. Any Christian knows to accept such claims as so much lying. When has Trump or Clintons ever told the truth about anything. Why say they are
                      completely corrupt and lying about everything and then say that they aren't lying when they claim to be Christians?

                      Anyway, I'm off to another food bank with my walker. It is .75 miles each way.

                      You guys make fun of me because you don't know what I'm talking about. There is a prayer chain at my church and they pray for whatever you ask for, and those prayers are answered. The last time I asked for anything was almost 6 years ago with respect to my daughter who was diagnosed with cancer.

                      And they have prayed for me for 40 years. One time I asked someone to pray for me and I felt her prayer (to my utter amazement). There is an art to prayer. If a person asks for healing, the person prays envisioning the person as already healed. It isn't just that the person praying changes something in her/his own mind, but that a person's prayer connects to another person.

                      You call it, flipantly, organized religion. But Christianity is a loving, compassionate fellowship of people and scripture says that such fellowship will be rewarded with divine presence. This has nothing to do with the government (a really crass way to look at Christianity). But rather it is a caring group of people. I don't go to church for the last few years, but I have an unspoken fellowship with a church and listen to a sermon every week over the internet.

                      If I had a special prayer request I could ask my church in Boulder for a prayer from the prayer chain (a number of individual praying for that request) anytime I want, without even saying who I am.

                      All the studies show that people live longer who have that social connection. I still have that connection. I'm just not physically…

                      there right now. But I am still part of that community (since 1969) and could return anytime I want to.

                      I asked them to pray for my daughter that she not have the terrible surgery that accompanies anal cancer because that is what she wanted. That prayer was answered and she is still alive without cancer almost 6 years later. Yes, she is disabled and she is in constant pain, but she has her own car and she babysits with her grandchildren and she is happy and her husband is a good Christian and he supported her and bought her all kinds of alternative medicine including Resveratrol and Avemar and they are still extremely happy together.

                      You can't really substitute that kind of community anywhere because the Holy Spirit is really there sustaining and inspiring the community.

                      In late 1989 we drove through the desert in California with the frequent refrain, carried by the car radio:

                      "You are in the greatest country on earth, you are in God's own country"

                      that message was repeated, time and time again.

                      In the years since, I have watched my country, together with others, pulverize countries in the Middle East.

                      I was in Jordan when Kuwait was invaded. The border was closed, I was unable to return to Tel Aviv for my flight home.

                      Obe refers to our soldiers that pray before battle, then go out believing that 'right' is on our side.

                      I've seen a lot of mind control in my life and yes religion has/is quite often also used. Sometimes it is very subtle, but I recognise that there are wonderful people who have attempted to alter the course in every system from within; be it religious, corporate or of government.

                      However my ears now ring with the cry – 'Get out of Babylon'.

                      Actually heart I don't go to a 'church'.
                      Though think that much has changed.

                      My childhood was encompassed by ritual.

                      However, when I addressed the additional teachings which were very confrontational, I left, but I did not throw the 'baby' out, that seed needed to grow.

                      When the person prayed for me, I had already hung up the phone so I have no idea what she prayed or when she was going to do it. I just felt a huge peace and relaxation come over me. She was just a lay person in the church who was teaching a Bible study group I was attending.

                      obe, when you say that no one needs a religion, this is in direct contradiction from the religious mythology you talk about all the time. The Force and the Matrix are powerful, religious mythologies that Hollywood and the freemasons have created to substitute for the truth.

    Tritium. How much is too much?

    Entergy explores option of discharging radioactive water into Connecticut River

    At Thursday night's Vermont Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel meeting, it was announced that Entergy has asked the state to explore the possibility of releasing thousands of gallons of tritium tainted water into the river. The problem of groundwater seeping into the lower level of the plant's turbine building has been ongoing since Vermont Yankee's closure in 2014, but now the current flow is up to 900 gallons of intrusion water per day, according to Vermont Yankee Government Affairs Manager Joe Lynch. In February, the groundwater intrusion water was stored in swimming pools and was then moved to bladders until shipped off to facilities in South Carolina, Tennessee and Idaho. The question now is whether or not some of this could be released into the Connecticut River.

    They intellectually analyze each little sample down to the atom while verbally minimizing the danger their thumb covers at that moment in time, and in the end they never ever add up all the results with the other 9,999+ releases up to that point in time.

    The corporate solution is profiting from pollution…

    Tritium

    Tritium is an uncommon product of the nuclear fission of uranium-235, plutonium-239, and uranium-233, with a production of about one atom per each 10,000 fissions.[7][8] The release or recovery of tritium needs to be considered in the operation of nuclear reactors, especially in the reprocessing of nuclear fuels and in the storage of spent nuclear fuel. The production of tritium is not a goal, but rather a side-effect.

    In January 2014 it was made public that a total of 875 TBq (2.45 g) of tritium are on the site of Fukushima Daiichi,[9] and the amount of tritium contained in the contaminated water is increasing by approximately 230 TBq (0.64 g) per year.[10] According to a report by Tepco "Tritium could be separated theoretically, but there is no practical separation technology on an industrial scale."[11]

    Tritium has leaked from 48 of 65 nuclear sites in the US. In one case, leaking water contained 7.5 microcuries (0.28 MBq) of tritium per litre, which is 375 times the EPA limit for drinking water.[28]

    The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission states that in normal operation in 2003, 56 pressurized water reactors released 40,600 curies (1.50 PBq) of tritium (maximum: 2,080; minimum: 0.1; average: 725) and 24 boiling water reactors released 665 curies (24.6 TBq) (maximum: 174; minimum: 0; average: 27.7), in liquid effluents.[29]

  • Pacific Ocean radiation back near normal after Fukushima: study
    http://www.japantoday.com/category/world/view/pacific-ocean-radiation-back-near-normal-after-fukushima-study?

    It's magic.

    All of the Fukushima radiation is gone in the ocean

    And all of the comments applaud this 'fact'.

    • The picture shows a guy holding up a radiation detector on shore, out of sight of the ocean.. Maybe that is how they tested the ocean water?

      Hey, hold up that cheap dosimeter and aim it at the ocean 1/3 mile away..

      No radiation beyond background?

      Good, that means the ocean is back to normal.

        "..In the days following the quake and explosions at Fukushima, seawater meant to cool the nuclear reactors instead carried radioactive elements back into the Pacific, with currents dispersing it widely.."

        And no mention of the underground river washing At Least 300 tons highly radioactif water in the ocean Dayly for 5+ years..At Least..because thats the official number they admit aka the absolute minimum they dare not hide..in reality and knowing the honorless japanese government..probably 10 times more..
        Where are the coriums ? Where are the whales ?

          "..“As an example, in 2011 about half of fish samples in coastal waters off Fukushima contained unsafe levels of radioactive material,” said Pere Masque, who co-authored the review published by the Annual Review of Marine Science.

          “However, by 2015 that number had dropped to less than one percent above the limit.”.."

          Btw , i could be mistaken but wassent there another "ferm raise" in determing "officially safe " levels of nuclear allaround contaminations not so long ago..now backwards compatibel with 2015 maybe..to "explain" things..the new way.

            I'm not sure where it was..but anyway..i wonder from the 50% of all species that went extinct globally the last 40 years..off all the reasons and causes we created..how many of them is thanks to manmade nuclear..and rising offcourse..just as with humans i guess..since the first bombtest..
            The whales..dramatically faster..fuku and poef, individual sightings rare as a human conscience from certain levels up..regardless of what "safe limit bubbles" governments dare blow ..its a contest..a bigger bubble blowing contest..a race between reality and controlled perception..

  • Rumor has it that the next story will be about how the Pacific is full of life, more and better than before 2011. All of the animals are so happy and abundant that their bellies are bulging out from the abundance of food in the ocean.

    Ya but, where's that leave Wally?

    Wally the whale is towed out to sea a day after washing ashore

    Biologists with the National Marine Fisheries Service visited the carcass before noon Friday and identified the creature as a humpback that was tagged in August. The whale’s name, they said, was Wally.

    The following sums up this thread nicely:

    "This could create much higher exposures in the population than have been assumed. The longer biological half life is additionally concerning as their insolubility could make it much harder for the body to expel them."

    And reasonably on subject, too.

    If-you-could-reason-with-religious-people-there-would-be-no-religious-people.

    You believe in religion? All religion is mythology. It’s just stuff humans made up and told their descendants not to question. Believing something that isn’t true and refusing to consider the evidence is the definition of a blind follower. Don’t get mad at me for calling people who worship mythology sheeple, get mad at Jesus for comparing himself to a shepherd. I’m also not saying that being an atheist makes you smart and independent. There are plenty of pop atheists who have rejected religion just because it’s trendy, and that makes them sheeple as well.

    Every one of us is a product of the environment we were raised in. Our most basic assumptions about life, existence and our own identity are interwoven with the fabric of society so tightly it’s usually impossible to tell where society’s ideas end and ours begin. The world simply can’t be divided into sheeple and nonconformists. We’re all sheeple.

    Once you admit you’ve been guilty of following the herd your entire life then you’ll be motivated to tear yourself apart looking for the disgusting stains of society within yourself. And when you do that you’ll also find the good parts of your personality that society helped build within you.

      The funny thing about people who don't believe in God or a creator is that they are nothing but descendants of apes. They believe in the myth of the big bang, and the myth of evolution.

      I went once with someone to a church that didn't believe in God and these professors were saying that they went to church on Sunday because everyone else did. And then they started describing their superstitions. And these people think they are smart and not sheeple?

      When God touches your heart it is a miracle that transforms you. And there is no one in the world that can take that experience away from you.

      Christians are freed from superstitions and other voodoo.

    Well Adam had a perfect environment and still blew it. Environment is not an issue. Evolution violates the 2nd Law of Thermo.

    All religions are no more or less than self improvement programs. Take a good-for-nothing and after he jumps through enough wickets, hoops and hurdles he will become a prize steer. Christianity is not a religion. Sure there're religious people that are Christians but Christianity is not a religion. God nether sees nor foresees any good from man. "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags" Is 64:6.
    Religion is what man does for God. Christianity is what God does for man. God rejects any work from man. Paul said the more works you produce the deeper the hole gets. Stop digging.
