Scientists Discover New, Unexpected Way Fukushima Is Polluting the Ocean

(Natalie Renier, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) By Tara MacIsaac, Epoch Times Virginie Sanial, a scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, samples groundwater beneath beaches in Japan. Virginie and her team found contaminated sands are releasing radionuclides into the ocean. (Matt Charette/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) Radioactive cesium from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been flowing into the ocean since an earthquake and tsunami caused a meltdown of its three reactors in 2011. Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and Japan’s Kanazawa University have discovered a new way cesium is traveling from the power plant site into the ocean and to groundwater miles … Continue reading Scientists Discover New, Unexpected Way Fukushima Is Polluting the Ocean

This Simulation Shows What Would Happen if a Nuclear Bomb Dropped Near You

  by Business Insider Nuclear Explosion Imagine that a 150-kiloton nuclear bomb exploded in the city closest to you. Do you know how the city, surrounding region, and its inhabitants would be affected? If you can’t think of much more than “a lot of people would die,” you’re not alone. “We live in a world where nuclear weapons issues are on the front pages of our newspapers on a regular basis, yet most people still have a very bad sense of what an exploding nuclear weapon can actually do,” Alex Wellerstein, a historian of science at Stevens Institute of Technology, wrote on his website NuclearSecrecy.org. … Continue reading This Simulation Shows What Would Happen if a Nuclear Bomb Dropped Near You

Armageddon Is Two and One-half Minutes Away

  by Paul Craig Roberts Are you ready to die? You and I are going to die and not from old age, because our fellow Americans are so stupid, ignorant, and brainwashed that they believe the lies that are leading us to our certain destruction.

NUCLEAR EXPERIMENTATION – COLLECTIVISM OVER COMMON SENSE

by Ethan Indigo Smith, Contributor Waking Times Fascism: “Any program for setting up a centralized autocratic national regime with severely nationalistic policies, exercising regimentation of industry, commerce, and finance, rigid censorship and forcible suppression of opposition.” ~ New Collegiate Dictionary, 1956. With so many disastrous failures defining its history, the nuclear industry is little more than an experiment, conducted for the benefit of national regimes at the expense of free information, technological innovation, our health and environment, and all life on Earth. Despite the calls of its proponents, such nuclear experimentation and industrial institutionalization is a formation of fascism to the letter, and … Continue reading NUCLEAR EXPERIMENTATION – COLLECTIVISM OVER COMMON SENSE

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

by Paul Craig Roberts Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense. In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and … Continue reading Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China

14,923 nukes: All the nations armed with nuclear weapons and how many they have

by Skye Gould and Dave Mosher When it comes to the threat of nuclear war, 2017 is shaping up to be a watershed moment. Relations between the US and Russia — the two foremost nuclear superpowers — has reached a “low point” because of the US’s accusations that Russia meddled in the US election and is involved with the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Meanwhile, North Korea draws ever closer to constructing a device that could threaten Washington. President Donald Trump has also inherited a $1 trillion program to modernize US nukes, and Russia now strains its budget to do … Continue reading 14,923 nukes: All the nations armed with nuclear weapons and how many they have
