People of the Earth Address the Fukushima Crisis

“Powerful technologies are out of control and are threatening the future of all life.”

“The Fukushima nuclear crisis alone is a threat to the future of humanity. Yet, our concern goes far beyond this single threat. Our concern is with the cumulative and compounding devastation that is being wrought by the actions of human beings around the world. It is the combination of resource extraction, genetically modified organisms, moral failures, pollution, introduction of invasive species and much, much more that are threatening the future of life on Earth.”

Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe and Spiritual Leader of the Great Sioux Nation, will present the Council Statement on Fukushima. […]

Message from Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Oct. 28, 2001 (emphasis added): […] To allow continual contamination of our food and land is now affecting the way we think. A “disease of the mind” has set in World Leaders […] In our Prophecies it is told that we are now at the Crossroads: Either unite Spiritually […] or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives eyes. […] This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony or it will bring the end of life as we know it. Starvation, war, and toxic waste have been the hallmark of the Great Myth of Progress and Development that ruled the last millennium. […] You yourself are the one who must decide. You alone – and only you – can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor or to dishonor your relatives. On your decision depends the fate of the entire World. Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind. Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger? Know that you yourself are essential to this World. Believe that! Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this World. Did you think you were put here for something less? In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending!

Chicago Tribune, Oct. 1, 2006 (emphasis added): For more than a decade, hundreds of thousands of Native Americans trekked to Dave Heider’s farm to visit Miracle, a rare white buffalo they viewed as a prophecy of peace on Earth. When Miracle died two years ago and the visitors stopped coming […] in August, Heider discovered a newborn white calf nuzzling its mother in a pasture. […] When Miracle was born in 1994, members of the Lakota Sioux Tribe in South Dakota deemed her the first white buffalo born on U.S. soil since 1933. […] Scientists say three things in nature can cause this kind of spontaneous genetic mutation: radiation, chemical exposure and a natural accident in the process of the cell duplicating DNA […] To many Sioux who traveled to Heider’s farm, Miracle represented the return of the sacred spirit of the White Buffalo Calf Woman who first appeared to the Indians some 2,000 years ago when tribe members were dying of starvation. […] Before leaving, the woman told the Indians she would reappear one day, signifying the return of peace to Earth. As she walked away, the woman turned into a young buffalo, turning four colors–black, red, yellow and white. Miracle’s coat changed color three times–from white to black to yellow and then to red. […] Arvol Looking Horse, a Lakota tribal chief who is the 19th-generation keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf pipe, said Miracle would have had to change color a fourth time–back to white–for the Indian prophecy to be fulfilled. “To us, this new calf brings another rebirth, and tells us have the faith and belief that if we unite and respect each other, we will see change,” he said.

  • Canuck1

    The elite probably have the remedy for radiation poisioning. Us serfs are on our own..

    • Gradius

      There is no point. Even if they have such "magic thing" it means absolutely nothing. This thing will go for over a BILLION YEARS, you can't reverse it. In around 500~600 million years the Sun will be bigger (and hot) enough to vapour ALL water on Earth.

      • Bones Bones

        Just like Chernobyl, Hanford, et al. they will be affecting life in those areas far longer than humans even live here. It's pathetic to see scientists who know the millions of years half-lives of some of the radioactive isotopes say maybe thousands of years. A TINY difference. lol Now extrapolate into the next 10,000 years, will over a billion lives be lost? Will future generations live in contaminated places and not know, while wondering why everyone is so sick? Look at Fallujah. So sad.

  • Alpha1

    I agree with Looking Horse, we have to make the choice and not let the leaders or fear dictate our minds and our hearts. Stand with us and be with us in this great time of the end. Yes it is time to stand and fight the oppressions of man and help to heal our mother. She is the life giver and we have eaten her with greed and hunger for power/energy.

    • moonshellblue moonshellblue

      Yes but I did not read anything about fighting just that every individual was put here to make sound decisions concerning Mother Earth and to walk in honor for in the hoop of life there is no beginning, no end. That was my understanding of Chief Looking Horse.

      • We Not They Finally

        "Fighting" is just a generality. Like not taking things they way they are or how you are told they are. Working to make them different and better, even if that takes "a fight." We tend to think of "fight" as aggressive, but unfortunately this "fight" seems to be purely defensive, to save what we can. I'm sure you relate.

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    Nero has nothing on this crowd of world "leaders." They are on a soul train to hell.

    The grass always looks better on the other side of the fence.

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    As I sit here sipping zeolite in water with a couple of drops of nascent iodine, my soul is crying inside. But I don't cry. Even that seems to have lost its salty hunger for better prospects.

    • We Not They Finally

      We were going to order zeolite, but some research on it stopped us. We do know that sometimes good remedies get bad press, but we also want to be sure that what we're getting is effective and safe. Zeolite absorbs toxins, heavy metals, radioactivity, a lot of bad things. So maybe if it is NOT purified right before it is sold, it may contain what it's already absorbed, and actually be harmful! We don't know that, no, but we want a better take on it before we spring.

      • MochiMadness

        WNTF–This is simply my opionion, but perhaps it will make sense for you.

        Zeolite, along with bentonite clay and other such "absorbers"–must come into contact with the substance that you want it to absorb. It does not "hang around" in your system–it goes through the GI tract just like any other undigestible input (i.e. fiber).

        Unless, of course, you drink it or eat it along with every single thing you put into your mouth.

        That said. None of the absorbers will effect inhaled particles. The respiratory system is completely separate from the GI tract–and if you recall–the gentleman Manager from Fukushima died of esophageal cancer–the particles were, in all likelihood, lodged in his esophagus or inhaled (the trachea lies parallel to the esophagus).

        Please–keeping yourself as healthy as possible is WONDERFUL, and it gives you better odds of recovering from ARS. But what we are discussing is that this is not an acute exposure–this is a situation of long-term, chronic exposures that have cumulative damage effects on your DNA (replication) and tissues (inflammation).

        YouTube has wonderful, short videos on how each system works called the "One Minute Medical School" series. They are simplistic, but effective–they'll give you a solid basis for making decisions about where your hope might lie.

        Understand as well, that these unregulated (haha!) supplements are of unknown origin–and can be subject to the same "unscrupulous mixing" that is happening…

      • unincredulous unincredulous

        Thought about that, too. It seems to me that if some toxin's already locked into the cage structure of the zeolite, it should stay in it. If there is any room left in it or still an electrical charge difference left, the structure and its charge should sop up a little more.

        I just thought it was time to try something new. I am tired of feeling blah. All this bad news might kill me. Someone said people who fall out of airplanes without a parachute die of a heart attack, not hitting the ground.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          unincredulous, check out food grade diatomaceous earth as a detoxifying agent. Use only food grade D.E. (also called, "fossil shell flour.")

    • Discordian

      My wife and I both tried Zeolite and did not have good results with it. It made us both rather ill, and it seemed to be something beyond just the release of toxins.

      I meant to try a round of it again just to see if I got a different result, but never got around to it.

      • unincredulous unincredulous

        I have taken it for about 4 days and I am taking a break from it for today anyway. I took a tablespoon in a half gallon of water the first day, and then found out that it was supposed to be just a teaspoon and cut back the next three days to a teaspoon. I sure felt strange that first couple of days, not in a real bad way. One thing I noticed was how I could smell things better (I smoke to much tobacco probably). Taste improved. Cigarettes tasted GREAT!
        Energy was improved I thought, but I was also drinking more water, which probably helps without the zeolite. Dreams were getting more intense. Last night as I was going to sleep, I saw what looked like a web page complete, but blurry. I tried to read it and it disappeared. The mind has power I wish I could control. Maybe the nascent iodine is increasing hormones. I read that it helps with hormones.
        I have taken medications from the doctors that made me feel stranger than zeolite.

        It's hard to figure out what is right to do. I read some positive things about a tree named soursop today, but when I looked it up on webMD, it said every claim was unproven, and it was a nerve killer! Quite the contrast.

        • unincredulous unincredulous

          Just wanted to add this… last night I felt Great for a little while. Haven't been able to say that in a little while. I got this little bottle of oreganol at a discount store down the street . They get discontinued and outdated food but can sell it for a year after the expiration date. I got this bottle for a dollar. It expires in 2014. I looked it up online and first place I went to wanted 40 bucks for the little bottle. I rubbed it all over my feet. Online search results said it helped with athlete's foot. I don't have that,but I work in wet conditions with rubber boots and every day my socks are wet. That's a bit beside the point, but wow! I don't know if it was just the oreganol or the combination with the other stuff. I found out that dandruff is really caused by a fungus or something. It seemed to help greatly. Too bad it is forty bucks. I probably will never have any ever again.

          • razzz razzz

            For dandruff and athlete's foot, use apple cider vinegar as a rinse for hair and to soak your feet. It is a weak acid (read the label on the bottle) and kills the fungus that causes dandruff and athlete's foot. Also, take a half a shot glass of it chased with a bit of water to stop heart burn.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          Be aware anything that's a binder (like zeolite, clay) can also bind (and deplete) minerals in your body. You'll need to replenish the minerals. Take the zeolite at least two hours before or after taking a supplement.

          • unincredulous unincredulous

            Thanks,I have been trying to find info on what is stripped out as A.Gunderson said. Besides toxins. Had about 4 days off the zeolite now, taking vitamins and probiotics. May start up again on Saturday. I have had no luck finding info on exactly what all the zeolite will strip out.

            • Clay/zeolite binds with heavy metals/radioactive ones and chelates them.

              It can also pull toxins out from the outside of the body, which is why animals when sick or injured seek out clay/mud and roll in it.

              Parrots eat clay in the S. American jungles.. whole flocks come in and gather around clay banks.

              Bottom line, Earth offers healing, on many levels and in many ways.

    Sorry Chief but Its so far out of control and the dark side really has a strangle hold on the worlds population… We are about to the point of no return…Like the old Kansas song

    • moonshellblue moonshellblue

      No you can't give up no matter how hopeless it is amazing what our planet has endure and who can really say what the future holds while perhaps not for all of us I do believe life shall continue and our planet will become a precious gem once again cleansed and brilliant.

      • We Not They Finally

        That's the thing. And what about the young? It may be that a certain percentage of humans survive and figure it out. I wonder if the Chief cited above knows the Hopi prophecies, which speak of BOTH huge earthly despair AND of help from "our brothers from the stars" and deciphering "the codes in the blood" (= fix DNA damage?)

        It looks hopeless, yes, but I don't want to rule out life for others — not at all.

    • SadieDog

      I tend to agree we are past a 'tipping point'. It's just a fact that some diseases and some parasites destroy their hosts. Life may continue on earth, but it will have to be radiation tolerant organisms. I believe humans have hit the proverbial iceberg. – …and the band played on.

  • rakingmuck

    They truly have indeed lost more than that. Hiding inside a mountain will do nothing for them when the mother shakes and the father quakes.

        Nor was what the people who invaded their land did to them and round we go the hoop of life no beginning, no end. It's difficult not to get bummed out about our species.

      • Socrates

        Europe wasn't idylic either. There were so many wars there first Hundred years war, second Hundred Years war, Thirty Years war, Seven Years war, Thirty Years war, WWI, WW II, and their colonial conquests… plus Cold War testing…

        Native Americans burned trees to make way for buffalo herds and had other impacts which were negligible compared to industrialized agriculture, roads, coal mines, NPPs, strip mining, fracking…..

        Living in harmony with the land and living in harmony with each other are two different things. But these days wars and the MIC destroy more and more environmental resources – soon the entire planet.

      Thank you for that Socrates. And, for the real history of the United States, "A People's History of the United States" (1492-present) by Howard Zinn is a must read.

      Zinn's book about what you didn't learn in school. makes it easier to understand why our governments and institutions are so dysfunctional, corrupt and destructive. The never ending chaos and violence is all about our new "citizen", now the corporation as a "person".

      Fukushima is just one, of the numerous ELE events set in motion by corrupt governments and institutions, that the planet faces in the next 10-20 years.

      Only this time, radiation will probably wipe us out before global warming, a solar flare, an asteroid, a super volcano, a swarm of tectonic earthquakes, et al.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

      Russia is also a huge ecological disaster. They have nuclear waste all over the place. Then in China also an ecological disaster.

    This whole thing is turning out to be like a bad Roland Emmerich science fiction "end of the world" film…

    The native american leader I've never heard of comes out to talk about the forests and the spirits and that if mankind doesn't change they will destroy the world.

    Next the Morgan Freeman like President of the United States will make an announcement to the world that the end may be near.

    Then after that, the young beautiful reporter tries to get to the bottom of what's really happening, only to find out the truth and that we are truly screwed.

    Then the crap really hits the fan and half of us die…

        Not that it doesn't sound like a great film. We just re-viewed "The China Syndrome," a great film. But which no one seemed to heed at all.

        • zardoz2012 zardoz2012

          I remember seeing The China Syndrome when I was a kid. It really disturbed me, but I never thought it would actually happen. But it did and The Fukushima Daiichi Incident is far worse than the scenario in the movie. 🙁

          I remember when TMI happened too. I was only six years old, but I remember my babysitter gasping at the news. I remember seeing the those ugly white reactors and knowing in my gut that something really horrible happened. Now that I look back on my childhood during the 80s I realize that I was born into a world that was seemingly in decline even back then.

          The threat of HIV took a good part of the fun out of sex and AIDS came about right when I hit puberty, so I never really knew a world where sex couldn't kill you. So sad. Now I have to get used to the idea of the food, water and air killing me too?

          I feel sorry for the children of the world. Children who are alive today were born into a hostile world that wants to kill them. What does that do to the psyche? Time will tell.

      For a change, if you want to see a movie where nuclear science creates a nightmare, and then saves the day, watch Terror Island (1966). Creepy! I watched it when I was a kid, and finally found out the name. Very old school and a bit stodgy at times.

  • Igmz Igmz

    I have known Arvol for many years..less than some…more than others and have heard this story before several fires. I have seen with my own eyes this power, this Chief of Chaos, and we are all that stands in its way. It's weapons are doubt and disunity and sadness and fear, and it will succeed only if we do nothing to stop it..The question, therefore is not so much "what can we do" , rather it is "what will we do"…and the answers can only be found in the very act, the movement, within the doing. Let no one define the truth that resides within us, for those who try are without truth, without honor, and ultimately, without power. They are the preachers of death and cannot abide life, any life, that is their purpose, to bring about the "end". And so let our power, our purpose be to bring about life, new and mysterious, let us defend and protect what is and honor in our souls the memories of what was, may we be the agents of life's perpetuation, the harbingers of love and light and justice, and may we turn away from this black road of destruction, and leave those who chose death to be on their way upon it. My relatives, may your days be long upon this, our beautiful home, and may the battles we wage for her be engaged with honor.

    Pick up now, my brother's and sisters, what weapons you would choose, and lest us join the fray for the hope and promise of another sunrise and a beautiful day. Hoka!!

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    🙂 Stepped out of my office today located in the beautiful Sierra Foothills, sun is shining and its 60 degrees and there was nothing to be heard..not a bird.. a tweet.. a frog…nothing, nada, but a painfully eerie dead silence.

    Where has all the wild life gone? 🙁

    I felt so, so sad and so all alone… 🙁

    Heard on the radio today that there are no fish in any of the rivers, nothing to catch, and they are talking about needed fish steps and why they haven't been built? Not one mention of all the growing spewing radiation contamination flying over head landing on everything.

    Soon, I am afraid, the radio may also be filled with an ongoing eerie dead silence…when will the masses ever awaken to the truth?

    • Michele

      obeone, I have always been a bird watcher and set up feeders around my house which is in the Traverse City, MI area. My home backs up to a state forest and for the past 18 months, I have not heard nor seen any of the small songbirds that included; chicadees, yellow finches, titmouse, house sparrows, and nuthatches. I used to have Mourning Doves that nested under the front porch for the winter, close to the feeders. I hear crows, red tail hawks, and large pilated woodpeckers. On the lakeshore there are gulls. There are an abundance of wild turkeys which I feed as well as some deer in the winter. Today, I finally took down all of the feeders. One reason that my father fed the bird population was that they ate the insects. The strangest happening around my property, even with 20 degree temps, are the clouds of mosquitos that cling to the warmth of the house and can be seen on the windows. The Passenger Pigeon met the fate of extinction because they were hunted and eaten…their favorite food was mosquitos. Stranger still, there seem to be no awareness of the ecological changes by other people.

      • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

        Michele, I am sorry that you had to take down your bird feeders and you personally loss some joy that made your world a better place and you too are now being affected. I have seen baby dead birds inside several nests this past year. Mom may have been eaten by a cat, but I do not think that would account for the massive drop in small bird populations across the entire US.

        The nuclear radiation contamination is a subtle false energy that starts at the bottom of the food chain and then moves up to the larger animals. First was the disappearance of bugs on the ground, then the spiders, and then the flying insects and then the bats and now its moving up higher in the food chains. The larger predator birds can still survive as the pluck out and eat the carcasses of all the smaller ones below that pass from the lack of food (bugs) below them.

        This same process is occurring right now in the Pacific Ocean food chains and none if this is rocket science to see and/or understand. It's all very sad that such a negative "Nuclear 3 Core Meltdown Event" would/could do so much damage to our combined intertwined ecosystems and biosphere in such a short period of time. 🙁

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        I saw some really big birds today, but I'm near sighted and couldn't see what kind they were.

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        My collard greens had no seeds this year. Very few bees. But then my stupid city sprayed the mosquitoes throughout the whole city which kills the bees. There wasn't one flower on all my fruit trees or the crab apple trees.

        • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

          Same here. no apples, no grapes, nothing grew properly or was healthy and it was all very disgusting! 🙁

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          I did have grapes and raspberries, black and red. But then I couldn't eat any of them because the spray they used is illegal on any kind of food for people or livestock. They didn't even tell the residents that they had sprayed an illegal pesticide on their home gardens.

          And the dam of the reservoir in the mountains broke and the reservoir on the plains which they are now using for drinking water in the city has had the same pesticide sprayed on it many times every year for 10 years.

          How people can destroy their last remaining resources is beyond me.

        • In Wisconsin, the apples were awesome, and the pears. Best ever. Stay away from Pacific North West.

          • deedles deedles

            I was going to say that, Stock. In our part of Wisconsin, we had a great, if bittersweet, year watching the hummingbirds, nuthatches, rose breasted grosbeak, robins, bunches of ducks and on and on. Even had a loon stop by for a couple weeks.

            Not diminishing the whole radiation thing AT ALL, just saying our wildlife was pretty active and we had a bumper crop of grapes from our one vine.

    • No doubt.

      IMO – 🙁

      Wildlife in the Sierra Foothills in Tulare County California has diminished.

      Far fewer insects and the ones I am seeing are odd looking types of bugs I've never really seen before.

      I agree with this too.

        A lot of people really are brave and want to make the most constructive choices. But what ARE the choices ahead of us? Is that being spelled out with clarity? So we try to make good human, mental, emotional, ethical, spiritual choices DESPITE what the terrain seems to be. This isn't a complaint — it's just outlandishly frustrating. I'd rather be out in the street with a million voices who care. But not seeing that.

    In 1973 & 1983 Sterling E. Lanier wrote 2 books "Hiero's Journey" & "Unforsaken Hiero" ( sadly he died before he could finish the trilogy ).

    The books take place 5000 years from now and are about one man's journey through a world changed by a nuclear holocaust, and populated by mutations of every type, most of them lethal.

    And I find myself wondering, is this what our descendants have to look forward.

    We have to do more than just comment in these forums. This is what Chief Arvol Looking Horse's speech is all about, we have to step up and take action, for the common good of all life on this planet.

    The more people we educate the sooner change with happen.

    Get the message out there on how serious the Fukushima nuclear disaster is quickly, and efficiently. You don’t need to explain anything just distribute the lifesaver.pdf or create your own, hand it out, mailbox it, Facebook it, Twitter it, or email it. Think outside the box, put it on public notice boards, hand it out to people, or put it into letter boxes when you go for a walk.


    • Vital, I rarely comment, but good on you!

      Sifting through my imagination,
      Looking for the right equation.

      Ideas bristling with brilliance,
      Having zero negative turbulence.

      Perfect electrochemical thought synapse,
      Sparking inventions into realization bliss.

      Welding seasoned wisdom into 3D logic,
      Thinking way beyond Miracles or Magic.

      Touching upon every informational facet,
      Drinking from imaginations thought faucet.

      Fueling, answer/solutions/action/actualization,
      Canceling my habitual stifling procrastination.

      Body is adjusting, self-tuning to minds motivation,
      Having alertness, dexterity, strength for the occasion.

      Utilizing full self-governing applied commonsense,

    I have crap/shit growing all over me…I am being changed/morphed/mutated right now! 🙂

    Everyone should check just incase something weird suddenly shows up out of nowhere.. 🙂

    These could be tumors, extra legs, a couple of new fingers, bump like third eye on the forehead, several toe nails that might be discolored or mutated, strange heart beats or maybe a second heart, wrinkles that twitch for no reason, scaly dry skin like a lizard, tiny bumps where the rain fell on you, discoloration of skin on legs, near the ground or on your feet, ears that itch or maybe have a new one growing next to the existing one and if a tail shows up.. you are screwed. 🙁

    I would say any of these signs might be Radiation Contamination trouble… 🙁

  • byron byron

    I'm figuring out what Beta means. Is the following correct? From http://majiasblog.blogspot.com where the discussion is about converting between Beta CPM and millisieverts. 18 days at a level of 700 CPM Beta is said on that blog to be equal to about 10 times the yearly EPA limit of 1 millisievert. If I divide by two, a reading of 350 CPM Beta (average) would be about 10 times the yearly limit of EPA in 36 days. An average reading of 175 CPM Beta would give one TEN times the yearly EPA value in 72 days. Minneapolis is currently showing about 162 CPM Beta, so somewhere in the area of every 90 days they are getting 10 times the recommended yearly dose. Four quarters in a year makes the yearly dose at around 40 times recommended radiation limit.
    .. There are very few Beta reporting stations on NETC.com. Is there any way to rough guess from a Gamma reading of 600 in Montana what the Beta reading might be? If I divide by 10 and say it might be 60 CPM if measured in Beta, is that about right? Or divide by 7? Or is there just not a good way to do this? Would it be better to just look at the very few Beta stations reporting instead of being concerned about the Gamma stations?

      <sigh> Byron–the EPA "limits" are set by the NRC and the nuclear industry. These are not safe levels, they are "within the acceptable range" of the known effects of radiation. This means, that they have an actuarial table of risk, and as long as that risk can be hidden (it is) or the outcomes can be attributed to other factors-the "limits" stand. The type of radiation is "more important" than concentration. Although alpha and beta are weaker emitters, they can be just as lethal, depending on how the exposure occurs (int. vs. ext. emitters) and the type of isotope.

      The detectable amounts of radioactive particles in the air changes from millisecond to millisecond–you need a long period of time to collect data, and even then, you have to factor in things like wind changes and velocity. Remember many of those particles come down in rain/snow as well. We won't go into noble gases. You get my point.

      There are many other sources of radioactive particles as well. The dirt under your feet. Burning firewood. Food (particularly meat)
      I understand your wanting to know, to pin it all down. The variables are innumerable. It's herding cats. While you and many others are busy trying to untangle the skein of f***upedness–the "decision makers" are destroying what's left of this planet.

      THIS is what I wished the inventors of these technologies stopped to think about before loosing them on the world. Forward vision, consequences.

    I have some potassium iodine, a geiger counter, will procure a solution of zeolite, stock around three months of food, some medicine, etc. My philosophy will see me through. However I was concerned about those that did not know, but I have found that most people do not want to know.

    S-I’ve read Zinn’s works, and 149X. All classics and should be required reading in schools (I’d include others, and eliminate Columbus Day as a holiday, but that is a digression).

    ”… the threat to future of humanity — 2001 Quote: “Contamination of our food and land now affecting way we think… disease of the mind has set in World Leaders… faced with chaos, disasters, diseases… end of life as we know it…”? Eloquent statements. I humbly bow toward this level of spoken wisdom and foresight from the past.

    Let me share with us a parallel reality as deserving as the blindness shown toward NPP. Risk related to small, strange accidents that have unintended consequences around complex nuclear technologies and the continued government secrecy protocol under which nuclear power bureaucracies operate.

    The continued practice of classifying nuclear related information has nothing to do with national security. It is intended to cover information which would otherwise be embarrassing to bureaucracies which have an understood fiduciary role. Keeping the public in the dark allows bureaucracy to operate with impunity. It is only through public awareness and engagement that the realities of human hubris can be confronted and the dangers avoided.

    • Wyakin Wyakin

      Try to envision performing maintenance on a Titan 2 missile in Damascus, Arkansas on a steel platform and a wrench is accidentally dropped into the hardened nuclear missile silo which punctures highly volatile pressurized rocket propulsion fuel under a 9 megaton weapon (9,000 kilos; In comparison to Big Boy, this is 562 time larger) presenting the possibility of the incineration of all of Arkansas. These type of accidents occur often and are not reported. Should the public be informed? If you think yes, then do what you can to uncover the veils of secrecy, not just in the arena of NPP but a nuclear military.

      Eric Schlosser Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety:


      Hence, the struggle is about ending NPP, and also their unregulated military counterparts. Peace.

    On the harvest, here at the front range of the CO Rockies we had a late freeze in the Spring, about April 22, so we had no fruit harvest. The tomatoes, peppers, squash, and greens did alright, though.

    There are fewer birds. And, with all of the frac pollution that spread, because of the recent flooding rains, I can only imagine that many more have met their sad fate. And, many thousands of acres,here and down river, rendered incapable of growing anything now, forever.

    On radiation-induced changes (likely) I note lesser energy generally, but part of this may also be a deepening depression about these disasters. And, oddly there have been specific points on the body where very intense pain magnifies, but only for a few moments, and then goes away.

    There is so much birdsong, chickens under the house waiting for a morning feed clucking in anticipation….saw a flock of of toucans, 16 a few days ago passing. Japan exodus to West Coast Canada to Belize. I advice many to do the same. The cleanest water out of a Maya well buried on top of a hill for 3000 years. Life is hopeful and abundant. Daughter left Japan and got grounded with her native land in Yellow Knife. Our exodus landed us in Belize almost a year ago Dec. 18 just before the Maya calendar. I don't see much said about the calendar but I believe we reached the tipping point then. Survival is my reality, and trying to save as much as I can nurture back to life. In Hospital in Japan, I often looked out at the concrete jungle with everyone rushing around for what?…. well my students always talked about convenience. Nothing in this Economic growth reality makes any real sense to me. Here in the jungle life still thrives with a meaning. Saw another of the Story Of stuff" productions. The Story of Solutions….so simple so true.
    Help to turn Belize into the first nation reserve, is the big picture. All those solar panels, wind generators, the new clean technology..put to use to stop the large corporations eating up this environment for more. Small third world country that could be the richest place in the world if we could just keep it clean.
    Once I get started hard to control all these connections that flood my brain. I will write more later.

    Our food supply was/is already contaminated by massive amounts organophosphate cocktails, growth hormones and gross ingesting of antibiotics, millions of tons of other insecticides and herbicides used annually . Add to that scary GMO foods and the ubiquitous sugar in our foods.

    Now, we have FUFU and the promise of more failures in the nuclear industry – not to mention the con'ted mining wastes of uranium in the water supply and past nuclear releases – Chernobyl's poison is still there in much of western Asia's and Europe's food chain.

    Face it, we live in an increasingly toxic world. It is not just FUFU. And there is little to be done about FUFU at the point either.

    We need to find a way to live well and not better.

    Mandate birth control – A one child per person policy worldwide. This would drop the population 25% per generation. Target 1 billion humans in 100 years.. This is a brutal necessity – it would have to be brutally enforced too.

    We must find a way to restrain the gross accumulation of private property immediately. A 90% tax globally on earnings over $100,000.

    Impose a 20 hecture limit on privately held farm land and a 100 hecture limit for grazing only land.. No private use of farm pesticide chemicals – only state and emergency applied.

    Mandate solar wind and wave/tidal energy production now.

    An immediate 500% tax increase on all the carbon fuels.

    Close all nuclear power plants now..

    Encourage the population not to work…

    • ftlt

      Con't …A 20 hour work week..

      We have no time left..

      The catastrophic effects Climate Change and terminal pollution (to include nuclear) are near certainties now..

      If we are to survive as a species, we need to take drastic societal changing measures now…

      Again, we need to live well not better…

  • spiritwoman

    Thank you Igmz for your words of hope and truth. I, too, am with the Chief. His wisdom is very old and consistent with quantum physics. We dream our reality into being with our minds as well as our actions. Reality is never a done deal. Any skeptics should look into research on the placebo effect. It is not just something that gets in the way of real scientific results but an example of the power of mind over matter. Example: a control group who were told they had surgery on their damaged diseased knees but did not, only went through the motions, had much better and lasting outcomes than those who actually had the surgery. Disabled individuals who believed they had corrective surgery in some cases went on to compete in athletic events!
    There is no reason to lose hope. Many gifted healers are working on this tragic problem. Every individual can help by living a life of gratitude and envisioning a healed planet. As has been said by one wiser than I, "God is in the darkness as well as the light."

    Fukushima: Tokyo Electric Admits Total 80 Spent Fuel Assemblies Had Damages Before the Nuclear Accident
    NOVEMBER 16, 2013 EX-SKF
    It was revealed that 70 fuel assemblies in the Reactor 1 at Fukushima had had damages before the March 11, 2011 earthquake/tsunami.
    The damaged assemblies are about one-quarter of the 292 spent fuel assemblies stored in the pool.
    There are three damaged fuel assemblies inside the Reactor 4.
    The Reactor 2 has three damaged fuel assemblies, and the Reactor 3 has four, making the total of damaged fuel assemblies 80.
    Technologies to remove damaged fuel haven't been established.
    Tokyo Electric has postponed the removal of the damaged assemblies as it is difficult to remove them in a normal manner.

    A poster mentioned Damsacus, Arkansas September 18, 1980, when a 9 megaton Titan missile caught fire and exploded in the missile's launch tube, hurtling the warhead, in pristine condition, 600 feet from the launcher.

    The launcher's 740 ton lid was blown off from the explosion from the missile fuel. Read more about it here:

      Pj-glad this resonated with you.

      I referenced this incident in the broader context of man’s technological hubris and the secrecy which prevents enlightenment of broader swaths of the public. There's been discussion here recently on action vs. talk.

      Both have legitimate use and purpose. A debate on the facts of NP or NW cannot occur if the facts are nowhere to be found. Nuclear bureaucracies tend to classify information not because of national security, but because the information is embarrassing to the government, and in many cases, the facts are simply outrageous.

      I encourage all to read Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety, by Eric Schlosser.

      “…a ground-breaking account of accidents, near-misses, extraordinary heroism, and technological breakthroughs in America's nuclear arsenal system. Schlosser discusses how the combination of human fallibility and technological complexity in the nuclear area still poses a grave risk to mankind.”

      For those who cannot afford to buy the book or just want to listen to the informative 30 minute interview by Host Kathleen Stephenson starting at about 3 min. it can be found here:



  • It is good to see more people become aware of the Fukushima crisis. Even Native Americans in the Dakotas know about it. People are jaded and one symptom of that is the low voter turnout. Not laziness but the perception that most politicians are useless lying thieves propping up a contrived economy which makes the rich richer and the rest of us expendable. The problem is more then Fukushima. Fukushima is one symptom of many. We collectively need to kick the bums out. Not participating in their economy, where ever possible is one good start. Your money is your vote, now more then ever. At least throw away your TV.
