KTVU, Aug 12, 2016 (emphasis added): Sea lions are contracting and dying from cancer, at alarming rates in their uro/genital tracts, most often among the females. “We are concerned that it is such a high incidence. It’s 19 or so percent in this particular population of California sea lions which is very unusual for any mammal,” says Dr. Padraig Duignan, Chief Pathologist at the Marine Mammal Center… “So, usually when you see a severe disease outbreak like this, in wildlife, there’s some big underlying problem,” adds Dr. Cara Field, a rehabilitation veterinarian…  “Certainly understanding why they get it and what the contributing factors are and ‘do these contributing factors represent a risk to us?’ is critically important for us in understanding what other risks there may be for us as well as other animals,” says Dr. Field.

California Academy of Sciences (bioGraphic), Aug 29, 2016: Scientists Investigate a Mysterious Cancer Plaguing California Sea Lions… The disease starts in the reproductive organs… By the time they die, tumors have sometimes infiltrated their backbones and turned vertebrae to “mush,” [Tenaya Norris, a scientist at The Marine Mammal Center] says. She describes examining one dead animal whose spine she could simply slice through. More than a quarter of the adult California sea lions that die at the Marine Mammal Center suffer from cancer, says director of veterinary science Shawn Johnson. That’s one of the highest cancer rates seen in any wild animal… There’s been a surge of sick animals, especially California sea lions… “Off the California coast, the ecosystem is really under stress,” says Johnson. That stress is hitting California sea lions particularly hard… Over the past three years, Johnson says, 80 to 90 percent of all California sea lion pups have died… And whether or not the disease is becoming more common or simply holding steady, Johnson says he knows one thing for certain: “It’s not declining.” The disease rates researchers are seeing among sea lions are far from normal, and they want to know why. “Wild populations shouldn’t have cancers like this,” Johnson says… Tumors first form in the cervix or penis, then spread, often metastasizing to the lymph nodes and spine… Inside a stricken animal, “there’s just masses of yellow, cancerous tissue,” says Frances Gulland, senior scientist at the Marine Mammal Center… [C]ancer-stricken sea lions have more pollutants in their blubber… “That’s really important for the human health perspective as well,” Gulland says. “These are contaminants the sea lions are acquiring from their prey. And the fish they eat are the same fish that we eat”…

  • Scientific Censorship

    The information in this question posted on Armstrong Economics, points to widespread censorship of scientific research, on the effects of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe on the Pacific Ocean. If true, it also points to a catastrophic collapse of the food chains that support life in the Northern Pacific ocean!

    Quote:

    "I have just returned from visiting my friend, who is a senior cetacean biologist at one of the large west coast universities. While there, he described an amazing situation to me that has alarmed me greatly. He said that research at his university has conclusively identified the complete or almost complete collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean, all within the last 36 months or so.

    Further, in “unauthorized” exchanges with the relevant departments in other coast universities, he learned that the numbers involved may well be more like hundreds of chain collapses in the same timeframe as opposed to dozens. Finally, in talking with authoritative figures in Vancouver, they apparently believe that the figure is likely closer to 1000."

    "As bad as all of this sounds, here is the real rub. Regarding these findings about food chain collapses, mutations, and injuries, my friend’s university has instituted a policy that forbids them from publishing their findings, from discussing their findings (on this subject) publicly or in private with other researchers outside their own campus, or finally from taking…

    • There are an increasing number of media reports coming in, of Pacific Ocean fish, whales, birds and other sea creatures dying in large numbers. The Fukushima radioactive contamination would be lowering the fertility and weakening the immune systems of any sea life coming in contact with it. As immune systems become weakened, it would be logical to expect viruses and bacteria that would normally be under check, to become more infectious. This radioactive contamination could also potentially stimulate viruses and bacteria to mutate into more infectious strains.

      This massive amount of radioactive environment pollution has resulted in the Pacific Ocean food supply crashing!

      Like the human embryo, embryonic sea life including fish eggs, are hypersensitive to radioactive contamination, hence the large number of reports of seals, whales and birds etc., washing up on the west coast of North America, starving to death.

      Now they are reporting a significant increase in cancer rates amounts the sea lion population.

      • The 1971 research paper by Dr Sternglass below, clearly demonstrates how nuclear contamination from the nuclear bomb testing era caused a significant crash in Pacific Ocean fish stocks. If this was the case then, it would be logical to assume that the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe is having a similar effect.

        Quote:

        “The purpose of the study was to determine whether continued atmospheric testing by France and China or potential releases from underground detonations that might unexpectedly escape into the nearby fishing grounds could have detectable effects on the reproduction of fish populations similar to the unanticipatedly severe effects of low level radiation on the human embryo and fetus (2, 3, 4) recently confirmed by independent studies by other investigators (5, 6).”

        Extract:

        Nuclear Fallout causes Fish Population Decline,

        As will be shown below, very large declines of fish-populations after low-altitude nuclear tests followed by a gradual recovery to pretesting levels have been observed both in the Atlantic and Pacific, strongly suggesting that the eggs of fish and the developing young are far more sensitive to internal radiation from low-level fallout than had been anticipated, very much as in the case of the human-embryo and foetus.

          Hi Vital1, what is going into the Pacific is likely far more lethal and toxic than what ended up there due to atmospheric weapons testing of nuclear weapons. How much more lethal and toxic?

          We do know the effects of exposure to rad waste is more damaging, and has longer-lasting effects.

          But since there is apparently no major effort being expended formally or statements being made about it about it (as a general observation), we just can't know. We only have land-based studies,I.e., effects of Chernobyl radiation & things like that. The damage just cannot be quantified by studies. Maybe by direct observation. The devil is in the details.

          At least Dr. Stern glass gave us something to go on, even if the effects are not directly comparable.

          Is anyone studying, has anyone studied the issue of how nuclear accidents affect sea life?

          We are way out of our depth. A giant living lab. Wonderful. Just love everyone & everything being guinea pigs for the nuclear industry and MI- C

              Code, I'm sure you are correct. There may be enough lethal and latent energy in the Fukushima shambles to poison and kill everything on earth. But there is a huge tendency to inertia here, and you can bet your sweet bippie they won't discuss it unless forced to do it.

              Just saying the methodology to do an accurate assessment does not exist.

              1.) There was never before a nuclear accident on the scale of Fukushima and
              2.) The nuke establishment has been too busy playing CMA and quashing honest scientific discovery in this area to allow expertise to develop.

              But I'd lay odds, the DOE and entities in England and France probably have a pretty good idea of what may be expected. Perhaps not with a high degree of accuracy.

              Thanks to people like Chris Busby, Helen Caldecott, John Gofman, Ernest Sternglass, we are able to make educated guesses. But still guesses at best, under the circumstances.

              The whole system of the biosphere and the oceanic web of life is so complex, It's doubtful we can know with certainty how this will play out. But it was bad, is bad, and will be badder still, no doubt about it.

              1,000 food chains collapsingg in the same span of time? No doubt about it, it's bad.

                my guess is that when all ocean species are gone, Buesseler will start a citizen scientist program to send in the lifeless water for further study.

                I note that the black sea was more polluted with Chernobyl fallout than we can reasonably predict the Pacific to be. Up to 60 bq/m3 in the water and several thousand in the mud. Yet fish exist there still, at least I hope so.

                My thoughts on this; becquerel counting seems useless in all but high doses. theres a lot more than Fukushima behind the global mess. We all know this. As you say, there is the complexity. Who can figure out the sum of impacts from the entire nuclear era and all other pollutants, plus simply killing everything. We killed 90% of several whale and shark and other fish species. The WEB of life. IF ape-man were to turn around now, there is a chance of partial rebound. If not, there is certain and swiftly approaching total catastrophe

    • Planetary Thermal Imbalance

      Also, a lot of krypton-85 and other radioactive isotopes are being released into the atmosphere by the ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe. This enhances air ionization, which interferes with the atmospheric-electrical system, and the water balance of the earth's atmosphere. This is creating a Planetary Thermal Imbalance & Extreme UV Levels.

      Planetary Thermal Imbalance is indicated by recent record breaking extremes in worldwide hot and cold temperatures. Where very hot and very cold air masses meet, you get severe weather events occurring. An example of this is the severe drought experienced in the Western USA, and the severe cold in the Eastern USA, over the last few years.

      • Excessive UV effects on ecosystems

        Extract:

        “Aquatic wildlife is particularly vulnerable Phytoplankton are at the start of the aquatic food chain, which account for 30 per cent of the world’s intake of animal protein. Phytoplankton productivity is restricted to the upper layer of the water where sufficient light is available. However, even at current levels, solar UV-B radiation limits reproduction and growth. A small increase in UV-B exposure could significantly reduce the size of plankton populations, which affects the environment in two ways. With less organic matter in the upper layers of the water, UV radiation can penetrate deeper into the water and affect more complex plants and animals living there. Solar UV radiation directly damages fish, shrimp, crab, amphibians and other animals during their early development. Pollution of the water by toxic substances may heighten the adverse effects of UV radiation, working its way up the food chain. Furthermore less plankton means less food for the animals that prey on them and a reduction in fish stocks, already depleted by overfishing.”

            GOM, we are there. Already in peril.

            A look at planetary weather patterns alone is enough to show us we have created a hostile environment which will not, in time, support life.

    Tiny plastic particles from clothing, tyres clogging oceans: report
    Invisible particles washed off products like synthetic clothing and car tyres account for up to a third of the plastic polluting oceans, impacting eco-systems and human health, a top conservationist body warned Wednesday.

    Unlike the shocking images of country-sized garbage patches floating in the oceans, the microplastic particles that wash off textiles and roadways leave the waterways looking pristine.

    But they constitute a significant part of the "plastic soup" clogging our waters—accounting for between 15 and 31 percent of the estimated 9.5 million tonnes of plastic released into the oceans each year, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

    In its report "Primary Microplastics in the Oceans", IUCN found that in many developed countries in North America and Europe, which have effective waste management, tiny plastic particles are in fact a bigger source of marine plastic pollution than plastic waste.

    In addition to car tyres and synthetic textiles, such particles stem from everything from marine coatings and road markings, to city dust and the microbeads in cosmetics.

    "Plastic waste is not all there is to ocean plastics," IUCN chief Inger Andersen said in a statement, insisting that "we must look far beyond waste management if we are to address ocean pollution in its entirety."

    'Considerable impact'

    While microplastics are hard to spot, they can seriously harm marine wildlife and as they enter the global food and water supplies they are believed to pose a significant risk to human health.

    Karl Gustaf Lundin, who heads IUCN's Global Marine and Polar Programme, acknowledged that few studies have been done so far on the impact of tiny plastic particles on human health.

    But he pointed out to AFP that such particles are small enough to actually move through our membranes, "so we have to assume that there probably will be considerable impact."

    IUCN is calling on the makers of tyres and clothing especially to shift their production methods and make products that pollute less.

    Lundin pointed out that tyre makers could for instance revert back to using mainly rubber, while textile makers could stop using plastic coatings on clothes.

    Washing machine makers could also install filters that could catch micro and even nano plastic particles, he said.

    Such steps are vital to limit the damage, he said, warning that the situation is particularly worrying in the Arctic—the biggest source of sea food in Europe and North America.

    "It seems the microplastic is freezing into the sea ice, and since you actually lower the melting point of ice when you have small particles in it, you have a quicker disappearance of sea ice," he said.

    Lundin pointed out that when the ice melts, it releases plankton that attracts fish, allowing the plastic particles to "go straight into our food chain."

                      And speaking of Busby et al…they do a good job of exposing the extra, unacknowledged toxicity of man made fallout, but they still havent put together the total ecological impact. The estimated deaths from Fukushima are still seemingly low…300k deaths or so. I mean, I dont see any of them linking bird and seal deaths to fukushima…even their model doesnt go that far.

                      Caught in the scientific becquerel trap. I have posted papers showing k-40 is still not toxic even at levels hundreds of times higher. That means about a million times higher than fallout. This, perhaps, shines some light on the problem

                      Stated differently, the amount of energy absorbed by a mass of cells is not what determines biological effect.

                      What matters is the spacial concentration of ionizing events in relation to cellular molecular components hit.

                      Internal emitters are densely ionizing.

                      You know what this also means?

                      The ICRP model is a FAILED model in relation to describing the effects of internally ingested LLR.

                      The model has been myopically designed not to recognise the effects of low level radiological exposure, and only cancer and directly observable birth defects of living newborns, despite the a plethora of other illnesses may result from organic molecular damage.

                      The evidence of numerous studies bears this out.

                      Too bad we cannot harness the energy of the prolific gas being passed from such a highly paid, self proclaimed PHD, propagandist squat jacker.

    Thanks to mt100 for posting the Cornell video with Charles Perrow, Sonja Schmid and Kiyoshi Kurokawa. I was not, not, not able to load the ENE version. It's here, now. http://youtu.be/DY7K9NtDtuY 5 Years After Fukushima – Cornell University panel with Charles Perrow

    Kiyoshi Kurokawa, National Graduate Institute for Policy studies makes some very good arguments. Impressive. One thing stands out for me… Code mentioned that Tepco et al had solutions, but were more interested in profit. Kurokawa points this out and gives the ice wall as a very expensive and ineffective choice. He also stated that the underground river was split upstream to build the plant, which was reverted after the earthquake to under the plants. He says they could simply revert it back, but chose not to due to profit motive. What I am getting at- The river is washing the cores out to sea and this is known by Tepco and is what they have chosen to allow.

    The consequences of this will be the end of Tepco and the nuke industry.

      and the end of the Pacific.

      What the video lacked, for my taste, was a harder hit against the nuke industry and its poison. The ICRP dose model and that branch of nuclear science totally failed, leaving millions dead but unaccounted for in its wake. When the audience (or people anywhere) try to weigh nuclear benefits by economics or carbon, its an agonizing mockery of our species out of touch, self aggrandized, theme hypnotized idiocy

      Kurokawa gets into the Japanese mind set problem. But the psychological problem is world wide. The people have willingly or unwillingly given up their power to despicable overlords…as if they need them. "what we need is leadership" they say. Do they vote the neighbor psycho into commander position, give him money and follow his every whim, how to run your life and household?

        Plutonium, the true motive of nuclear. Nuclear is not about "energy." Nuclear is definitely not about "green energy." Nuclear was conceived to produce the ultimate weapons of mass destruction. Plutonium is the crucial element which does not exist without reactors. Reactors are the wombs which give birth to the Evil One's spawn named Plutonium. This most evil element is more poisonous, more dangerous than any substance on Earth. Not only can it be used to make evil bombs but it can also be dispersed via accidents to wipe out entire Pacific ecosystems. Reactors are literally industrial scale plutonium dispersing dirty bombs and the longer WE the PEOPLE allow the criminally insane nuclear industry to continue to operate, the greater our chances of exterminating further ecosystems and potentially our own decendents' futures.

It's got all the greatest hits of total global anthrocide – huge fiery explosions, devastatingly high pressure shock waves, massive fireballs with intense heat, deadly neutron beams, gamma rads, beta rads, alpha rads, high altitude fallout that lasts for years, contamination of food, water and air. It's almost as if nuclear technology was specifically provided to mankind so mankind could exterminate itself. Messing with this technology will destroy us if we do not wise up and demand it be banned in every form in every place for every reason. We should be reducing the number of weapons. We should be shutting down all reactors. We should be securing and sequestering all wastes. We should verify that this is transparently happening. Instead of wasting trillion$ on new nuke weapons and dangerous reactors we should enter into new arms control treaties with Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Israel, Iran, UK and France. Trust but verify. Take the first step and do a new treaty with Russia. End the insanity of this nuke arms race that will be looked back upon in history as the most reckless and short sided era in modern history.

    Looks like this isn't new.

    A specific cancer of epithelial origin was first diagnosed in California sea lions at The Marine Mammal Center in 1979. Approximately 17% of adult stranded sea lions that die are diagnosed with cancer.

    The Center collects samples from each of these patients to measure environmental carcinogen exposure. It has also discovered that these sea lions are infected with a herpesvirus similar to that which causes Kaposi's sarcoma in humans. Future research will determine the factors, such as pollutants or genetics, which allow the virus to invade sea lion tissues and cause cancer.

    This is a very high prevalence for a population of wild animals. Cancer development is a multi-step process during which damage to the genetic material of cells (DNA) arises from the interaction between a number of factors. These may include environmental factors such as chemical contaminants, infection by tumor-promoting viruses and the animals' own genetic predisposition to develop the disease. People with this type of cancer generally have been smokers or exposed to toxins. The latter may apply to marine mammals. High levels of persistent organic pollutants such as DDT and PCBs have been found in the blubber of California sea lions.

      "MARCH 4, 2010

      For 14 years, since they first reported that a disturbing proportion of deaths among rescued California sea lions were caused by metastatic cancer, researchers have been trying to pinpoint the source of the illness.

      In 1996, Dr. Frances Gulland, the director of veterinary science at the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, and colleagues at the University of California, Davis, found that a striking 18 percent of deaths in stranded adult sea lions were the result of tumors in the reproductive and urinary tracts.

      “It’s such an aggressive cancer, and it’s so unusual to see such a high prevalence of cancer in a wild population,” Dr. Gulland said. “That suggests that there’s some carcinogen in the ocean that could be affecting these animals.”

      The center has not observed the same syndrome in other seals.

      Years of study have led researchers to think the answer lies not with any one culprit, but with several. Their research has added to a body of evidence concerning industrial contaminants in the ocean and their effects on the health of its inhabitants."

      It is toxins…a multitude. Not genetics. That is outdated stupidity.
      Can low level fallout affect susceptibility to infection? See Hillbilly's recent posts. Short answer, yes. Can infections lead to cancer; yes. Can low level radiation fallout cause cancer indirectly, i a way not calculated by any dose model? Yes. Is nuclear fallout more toxic than background radiation for known and unknown reasons? Yes. Science underestimates toxicity by 300 to 1000x according to research post Chernobyl. IS the mind of man prone to belief bias…emotional attachment to preconceived ideas that severely limit his adoption of new information? Yes. Doctors scoffed at the value of hand washing for several decades even after it was proven to cut down on contagious disease. Vocally scoffed at the idea…

        Let tell me you something about toxins…I live in the most uranium contaminated city (that is considered livable), they also call it the "City of Gold". You know gold is a good absorber/shield against radiation, naturally, right? So the thing is, when you separate the uranium from the gold, you cause significant issues, I think it's something like extreme polarizing effects…

        Now, I could for instance link you to research and studies that, for instance, suggests ALL humans' (and not just) first and most important part of their lymphatic system gets disabled/disrupted/hijacked by "society" and "intellectuals". That'd be your tonsils. Remember how children were urged to remove their tonsils not so long ago? Take a wild guess as to which two "proteins" are commonly suggested as healthy and heavily promoted. They happen to be homologous too. Casein and Gliadin. Also, check out Caseo- and Gluteomorphins for the addictive properties.

        Saying it is not "genetic" is somewhat misleading imo, there are obvious attempts to weaken immune systems (as you rightly suggest though, through toxins).

          "Basically, sharks seem to possess only one class of broad-spectrum serum antibody – similar to that found in human infants. In humans, this broad-spectrum class of antibody is replaced by more specific antibodies as the child matures and is exposed to a greater variety of pathogens. Conversely, sharks retain their non-specific immune response throughout their lives. This generalized immune system is one of the reasons sharks are able to detoxify many potentially harmful compounds quickly without need of prior exposure. Sharks injected with carcinogens, coliform bacteria, and – most recently – exotic fungal toxins at concentrations that would kill most vertebrates outright, have detoxified these pathogens and survived apparently without ill effects."

            Shark 'n Chips

            "Typically, in Australia, when you buy fish n’ chips you are often getting shark n’ chips. The shark meat you are consuming is probably called flake. Your serving of flake n’ chips, unless labelled, could be any number of shark species including endangered shark species.

            The name flake is commonly used as a name for any type of shark meat. Most fishmongers and fish and chip shops use the word to cover every species of shark that is either caught in Australian waters or has been imported.

            Australia’s Sustainable Seafood Guide advises that all shark meat is code ‘RED’ and that we should say ‘no’ to consuming it. This is because fishing for many species of shark worldwide in recent decades has severely impacted on shark numbers. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nation (IUCN), a quarter of the world's sharks and rays are threatened with extinction."

            But if you were wondering about the immune system stuff, consider how as that quoted bit mentions specificity and the resulting inability or disposition to say, diabetes, cancers etc.

            (https://academic.oup.com/ndt/article/25/8/2395/1899532/Can-a-dysregulated-mucosal-immune-system-in-IgA?related-urls=yes;25/8/2395)

            After the tonsils, thyroids, quite an important part of the immune system. That eventually effects the brain, heart, kidneys, spine, etc. Interesting how iodine-131 is used for thyroid "therapy" don't you think? Oh you have thyroid symptoms, well then, let's not address the cause and remove your thyroids instead.

            Btw my sister is a geneticist funded by the likes of B&M Gates foundation (though her work was "disappeared" a few times) uses chemo drugs to disable immune systems in rodents (not something I approve of, but what can I do?).

              "Amoxicillin was no longer effective. To alleviate recurrent infections, subject was treated with various antibiotics. Tonsillectomy was discussed. This patient began a wheat gluten free diet (WGFD). After initiating a wheat gluten free diet, this subject was tonsillitis free …unless he ingested wheat."

              Just go drink some pasteurized milk (loaded with all of ~3.5% "protein" and calcium that does the opposite of plant-based calcium, it compounds with fluoride, just saying) and eat some wheat, loaded with pesticides, animal abuse. Children happen to be particularly "allergic" to it. Not joking, your tonsils consider gliadin pathogenic, innately. Your gut can't even metabolize it properly, casein is homologous to gliadin.

              Yeah, society is garbage.

                "When wheat gluten presents to the tonsil tissue it is recognized by the immune system as a pathogen and is attacked by lymphocytes which generate an immune response, inflaming the tonsil tissue. For years, now we have “solved” the tonsillitis symptom by surgically removing the tonsils."

                Just saying…

              Genetics is a problem and they have known it for a while. Mutated(abbreviated) genes GET passed on ,this is well known. Of COURSE the majority comes from exposure to toxins. But this has been going on many many decades. It also effects gene expression which leads to a myriad of immune suppression problems…they know. Antibiotics resistance is one example.

      it was said by the wise ones; cover old wallpaper with new wallpaper.

      Thomas Paine, founding father;

      "The balance of wallpaper is the scale of truth. The same balance would be preserved were all the world not destitute of wallpaper, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay wallpaper aside … Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of wallpaper … the weak will become prey to the strong."

        Ah. Not being as familiar with Paine, it took me awhile…

        " The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them; for while avarice and ambition have a place in the heart of man, the weak will become a prey to the strong. The history of every age and nation establishes these truths, and facts need but little arguments when they prove themselves."

    "Police arrested an Environment Ministry employee Thursday on suspicion of accepting a bribe in exchange for favorable treatment in the allocation of cleanup work in Fukushima Prefecture following the 2011 nuclear disaster.

    The police allege that Yuji Suzuki, 56, who oversaw radiation decontamination work at a local branch of the ministry, was wined and dined in Fukushima and paid for transportation and accommodation expenses when he traveled to Toyama Prefecture sometime between around September 2015 and June 2016 by a former company manager."

    About Dana, two examples that have absolutely nothing to do with him:

    1) Jim Stone, who found out a freaking lot about Fukushima and other important topics especially for Americans, suddenly had a "proxy checker" on "his" new forum, making it impossible to post while using say the Tor Browser.

    2) Veterans Today, a website with loads of inside information from military and political sources (add some psychology on top) went as lame as a castrated whelp over a year ago.

    Gentlemen, this is the internet. You don't know who you are talking to and if someone gets… replaced… how would you know about it?

    Call me paranoid all day long if you like to, but since we all know about news suppression in media – how could anyone here be surprised about being a target for… the propagandists – to speak mildly.

      It's okay, I don't expect to stay here for long. Remember what Kali Yuga represents.

      With regard to human relationships, Markandeya's discourse says:

      Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
      People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
      Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
      Sin will increase exponentially, while virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
      People will take vows and break them soon after.
      People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
      Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
      Brahmans will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings.

    I don't get out much. The few people I speak to all seem to have one thing in common: they have someone in immediate family or extended family who has cancer.

    At work a few hours ago, my supervisor told me that her two dogs died recently.

    One had cancer. A tumor the size of a baseball appeared on its' neck, the next day or two the tumor became the size of a basketball. Doctors said $8,000 at least to try to save the poor dog. The dog was put down.

    The other dog died of depression over the loss of its' friend.

    My cousin died of cancer a couple of months ago.

    This is probably all due to algae or warmer ocean temperatures, or … (sarc)

  • The Giant - Humbled The Giant - Humbled

    Kia Ora:

    With respect to each and all for their physical efforts and a warm handshake to you all. For each one's spiritual involvement, concern, emotional investment, the lending of unseen energy to the plant – our first mother – thank you. These efforts are as varied as those who make them. Is the man who stands in front of the bulldozer more valuable and thusly greater than the man who writes a paper decrying the use of that bulldozer, or greater or less than the woman who talks with friends in denial about the depredations of the bulldozer? Amongst us, who is qualified to judge the other. Have any of us made such extra efforts and acts that we have qualified ourselves for anointment. For me it is the unseen energy of the cosmos we share that fuels the potential for change. I suggest that it does not matter if you eat it, drink it, bathe it, are radiated by it, or it is sprinkled over yourself like moon dust – a poison is a poison is a poison is a toxin is a toxin is a toxin. Pure fact is that together then these are worse than each by itself. Perhaps the radiation is the worse. It is not the sole cause of distress

    But these are just the physical – a manifestation of evil- the evil of greed – the evil of social control – the evil of domination. Lend ourselves to the underlying evil through virulent attacks one upon another is to become it – surrender and abdicate selfhood to banality and to embrace that evil. We do better usually – lets continue -

    Really I'm not trying to piss Dana or anyone off but…

    I hear the ozone layer is being destroyed and I am told that it filters out or blocks cosmic radiation. For a long time I've heard about holes in the ozone.

    If the ozone is shrinking, would all the radiation coming through dwarf the man made radiation.

    I read a report that at the current speed, the ozone will be gone by 2025.

    Why would the ozone be in decline?

    Certainly not because of any human activities. Maybe the whole thing is fake news to distract from our precious fuku. Or fuku to distract from ozone destruction.

    Which side are you on. Lets build a wall to keep out the opposing idea.

    Could cosmic radiation be helping to turn sea lion spines to mush?

    Will there still be denial in 2025?

    The reason I was told by fishermen that we don"t eat sharks was because they urinate through their skin.

Also when in ocean where theirs only a small amount of sewage, it gets in your ears, then you have to put peroxide in each ear with head leaning to one side so it stays in until the bubbling stops and the bad guys have been killed off.

      Almost like prophecy written in uranium. I could draw a parallel or analogy to other concentrated forms of "energy" in the human body, say, like aspartame (which gave my grandmother brain tumours which she died of).

      "The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,[5] making them useful in dating the age of the Earth."

      I wouldn't know anything about that, but ancients, egyptians, "christians", "free"masons would perhaps recognize it.

      So nuclear war doesn't quite look as propagandists proposed, is that surprising?

      "War is safe
      War is safe
      Moments of history – consumed by time
      Glimpses of life – consumed by death
      Swords nor flames but a dream

    Deep ocean danger as temperatures rise http://climatenewsnetwork.net/deep-ocean-danger-temperatures/
    March 3, 2017, by Tim Radford

    Tim Radford, a founding editor of Climate News Network, worked for The Guardian for 32 years, for most of that time as science editor. He has been covering climate change since 1988.

    " Warming seas, the increasing acidification of the oceans and the loss of oxygen from seawater could destroy ecosystems in the ocean’s dark abyss, and drastically change the biodiversity of the deep sea, according to new research. "

    " The abyssal population tends to live on the carrion that drifts down from the surface, or on the microbes that flourish on hot chemical brines that seep from deep ocean vents. "

    [ Is the carrion laced with rads? ]

    [ Numerous links embedded in the article, not a peep on how fuku rad may be adding to or enhancing the effects of other pollutants. ]
