170 MILLION AMERICANS ARE DRINKING RADIOACTIVE WATER. THIS INTERACTIVE MAP SHOWS IF YOU ARE, TOO

Amanda Froelich, TMU Waking Times Everyone needs water to survive. But in the United States of America, more than 170 million people are drinking radioactive water, according to a new study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). The consumption of radioactive elements may increase the risk of cancer, which is why this revelation is so concerning. Fortunately, a new interactive map reveals the locations the radioactive water has been found. This may enable citizens to find an alternate source of aqua until the public health crisis is fixed. For its investigation, the EWG analyzed nearly 50,000 public water systems in all 50 US states. The group … Continue reading 170 MILLION AMERICANS ARE DRINKING RADIOACTIVE WATER.

Why There Are No Nuclear Airplanes

A Cold War–era bomberCHRISTOPHER FURLONG / GETTY Strategists considered sacrificing older pilots to patrol the skies in flying reactors. An Object Lesson. by CHRISTIAN RUHL The U.S. Navy recently asked Congress for $139 billion to update its fleet of nuclear-powered submarines. Unlike “conventional” submarines, which need to surface frequently, nuclear submarines can cruise below the sea at high speeds for decades without ever needing to refuel. Defense planners expectthat the new submarines will run on one fueling for the entirety of deployment—up to a half century. The advantages of nuclear submarines over their conventional cousins raise a question about another component of the military … Continue reading Why There Are No Nuclear Airplanes

Fukushima in America? Twelve nuclear power plants are in the path of Hurricane Florence… flooding, storm surge threaten cooling operations

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 by: Mike Adams (Natural News) At least twelve operating nuclear reactors are in the predicted path of Hurricane Florence, which has been upgraded to a category 4 storm as it surges toward the U.S. East Coast. According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which offers an interactive map of active nuclear reactors, two plants are vulnerable to both heavy rainfall and the expected storm surge which could bring a surge of up to 20 feet of ocean water pouring into coastal areas. Those two reactors, located NE of Myrtle Beach, North Carolina, are known as “Brunswick Steam Electric … Continue reading Fukushima in America?

“Highly Secure”? Security Guards at US Nuclear Weapons Base Used LSD

The Mind Unleashed By Jake Johnson / Creative Commons / Common Dreams There are a lot of safe and responsible places people have found over the years to ingest hallucinogens in order to experience their pleasures and explore the challenges their potent properties can present, but it’s a judgement statement to declare that a U.S. military base which houses some of the world’s most powerful atomic weapons would qualify as such a place. Nevertheless, the Associated Press reports Thursday that U.S. service members charged with guarding U.S. nuclear weapons at a “highly secure” military facility in Wyoming “bought, distributed and used the hallucinogen LSD and other mind-altering illegal … Continue reading “Highly Secure”?

WHAT A EVEN A SMALL SCALE NUCLEAR WAR WOULD DO TO PLANET EARTH

by Vic Bishop, Staff Writer Waking Times The mainstream media is cheering on the psychopaths in government as they deliberately stoke conflict with Russia and press further forward with the Neocon agenda of total global war. If the media were doing its job, however, they’d be asking questions and pursuing truth in governmental matters in order to contribute to the good of society and the betterment of the world. At issue in this looming conflict is the horrifying specter of nuclear war, and the threat of such an unwinnable conflict is higher today than at any point during the cold war. It seems … Continue reading WHAT A EVEN A SMALL SCALE NUCLEAR WAR WOULD DO TO PLANET EARTH

Chernobyl’s abandoned dogs create their own exclusion zone community

Chernobyl’s abandoned dogs create their own exclusion zone community by Lacy Cooke VIEW SLIDESHOW If you ever happen to visit Chernobyl, you might run across one of the roughly 300 stray dogs that reside there. After the 1986 disaster, residents weren’t allowed to bring their pets away with them, and many dogs were left behind. Today, their descendants still roam the area, and while their life isn’t easy, The Guardian reports they are “a playful example of global kindness and cooperation.” Around 300 stray dogs reside in the 2,600 square kilometer – or around 1,004 square mile – exclusion zone at Chernobyl in Ukraine. The Chernobyl Prayer, an oral history of … Continue reading Chernobyl’s abandoned dogs create their own exclusion zone community

I TOOK A TRIP TO CHERNOBYL’S EXCLUSION ZONE AND PHOTOGRAPHED IT IN INFRARED

by Vladimir Migutin We always hear praises of the might of Mother Nature, how it renders useless mans’ creations, and bears life above the ruins. Well, it’s something that is always felt, but never on such a huge scale. This place IS the place for these contrasts. It’s pretty hard to describe the overall atmosphere I experienced during this trip. Despite the events of 1986, the ruins, and the rust, I didn’t have grim feelings while traveling there. On the contrary, it felt like I was in a “kind of” paradise on a different planet. Thirty years after the fallout, while … Continue reading I TOOK A TRIP TO CHERNOBYL’S EXCLUSION ZONE AND PHOTOGRAPHED IT IN INFRARED
