A presentation by Fairewinds Chief Engineer and nuclear expert Arne Gundersenclaims there is plenty to generate concern. The catastrophe is far from over despite the Japanese Government and Tokyo Electric Power Company push to decommission the Fukushima plant in 30 years. The closest cousin to the Fukushima disaster remains Chernobyl in Ukraine. The government there is waiting close to 100 years to decommission Chernobyl. Why the rush on Fukushima? The answer is more about politics and money than science.
According to Gundersen, problems exist at Fukushima that will last decades.
- Three of the nuclear cores at Fukushima Daiichi are in direct contact with groundwater, a problem "nuclear power designers and engineers never anticipated.
- Units 1, 2, and 3 were destroyed allowing the formation of holes and cracks; which with containment units breached, groundwater is allowed to come in contact with the nuclear cores.
- "23,000 tanker truckloads of radioactive water have leaked into the Pacific Ocean" with groundwater continuing to leak in and out at a rate "at least 300 tons per day;" so far more than 1500 days have passed and no end is in sight.
- The ice wall is a complete failure meaning Cesium, Strontium and Plutonium from Fukushima will bleed into the Pacific for decades due to unmitigated groundwater flow.
- Constraints of the press by the Japanese government's secrecy act continue to hide the full human, financial and environmental costs of the disaster.
- Levels of Strontium-90 concentrations outside the destroyed plant spiked 1000 % in three months from April 2015 to July 2015.
Natural News reports that Professor Michio Aoyama of Japan's Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radiology predicts that "nearly as much radiation from the Fukushima disaster will have reached the North American West Coast as was initially scattered over Japan during the nuclear explosions" by 2016.
Reports coming out of Japan indicate a 6000 % rise in thyroid cancer in the regionsince the 2011 disaster. However, the committee reviewing the screenings hesitate to "peg Fukushima radiation as the cause. The committee agreed not to rule out Fukushima radiation since the cases are similar to those observed after the Chernobyl disaster in 1981.
In Vancouver, British Columbia, fishermen were reporting "thick blankets of green slime" being pulled up in their nets while the Skeena River sockeye were unusually absent. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans determined the "goo" to be phytoplankton. The DFO credited the decrease in the sockeye "run" to the increased phytoplankton. The low sockeye population has resulted in fishing bans on several Vancouver Island rivers. While University of BC biologist Tony Farrell believes warm water is changing the food chain, one cannot rule out the possibility of radiation from Fukushima that has entered the ocean and landed on the coast.
The State of Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife announced an unprecedented, first ever emergency fishing closures statewide due to salmon appearing to be infected with a gill rot disease. NOAA fisheries biologist Paul Wagner called it "alarming," a "head scratcher" and associated the "die-off" to the disease. ODFW claims, "This is a pretty extreme set of conditions."
A mysterious die-off of whales continues to occur in the Pacific Ocean. In 2013, Ivan Macfadyen declared the seas near Japan dead as he sailed through the waters. Researchers expressed concern over radioactive material "bio-accumulating in fish and marine animals." Seeing as the Fukushima disaster remains uncontained and out of control after four years, bio-accumulation in fish and marine animals grow as contaminated water pours into the Pacific from Fukushima.
A powerful magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked the eastern Indonesian province of Papua on Tuesday, US seismologists said, causing panicked people to run out of their homes.
No tsunami warning was issued after the quake, which struck inland, and Indonesia's national disaster agency said there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The tremor hit at 6:41 am (2141 GMT Monday), almost 250 kilometres (150 miles) west of the provincial capital Jayapura at a depth of 52 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said.
"The quake was felt very strongly for four seconds" said disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. "Residents panicked and rushed out of their homes."
He said there were no initial reports of damage but added the region around the epicentre, in Indonesia's remote east, was difficult to reach, and data was still being collected.
The Earthquake-Report monitoring website said the area has "steep mountain ranges and its vegetation is rainforest, which means that the chance of dangerous landslides is real".
An AFP reporter in Jayapura said weak shaking was felt in the city for a few seconds.
A 4.5-magnitude earthquake hit north of Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon, less than an hour after a 4.0-magnitude temblor rattled the same region, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
The first quake was recorded around 12:49 p.m. local time, about 36 miles north of Oklahoma City in Crescent. The second quake struck at 1:12 p.m. in the same location, at a depth of almost two miles.
Oklahoma has experienced a major increase in earthquakes in recent years. In 2014, Oklahoma was the most seismically active state in the Lower 48, recording three times as many quakes as California. The largest Oklahoma quake to date had a 5.6-magnitude in November 2011, according to the Leonard Geophysical Observatory.
The triumvirate imposing man-made global warming on civil society as the 21st century’s top issue may have started at the United Nations, but it picked up steam with President Barack Obama somewhat, then surrealistically moved on to include the Vatican through Pope-Gone-Activist-Francis-Bergoglio.
The climate change movement has long dictated what the masses could eat and wear, what they could drive and where they would live.
They are now dictating to the masses what religion to practice, and their green religion is not Christianity.
The hierarchy of the global warming/climate change movement pay loyal allegiance to the pagan religion of Gaia and not the Christian God.
Without most people seeming to realize it, now that the New Green Religion of Global Warming/Climate Change is out of the closet it’s being brazenly preached from the church pulpit.
Most folk attend church services in the hopes of finding salvation, but they’ll be told to “Save the Environment” instead.
Back in April, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began an $84,000 venture to study how churches can be used to combat climate change.
“A taxpayer-funded graduate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is examining 17 faith-based institutions that have implemented “sustainability initiatives” in the hopes of developing workshops to teach pastors and other religious leaders how to change the behaviors of their congregants. (Washington Free Beacon, April 27, 2015)
“Climate change—which affects traditional faith-based efforts to improve human health, mitigate poverty and redress social inequity—is inspiring religious organizations to advocate for clean air and water, restore ecosystems, and conserve resources,” a grant for the project, which began last fall, states. “This project seeks to understand the empirical experiences of faith-based environmental efforts within communities.”
“Through what motivations and processes do congregation level sustainability initiatives emerge?” the grant asks. “What factors facilitate and/or hinder implementation of these initiatives? What environmental and community outcomes are perceived to have been achieved through these initiatives?”
“The results will provide insights into the role of religion and faith communities in motivating environmental behavior,” it said.
“The project, “Sustainability at the Community Level: The Role of Faith-Based Organizations,” is scheduled to last through September 2016.
“The project sees churches and other religious institutions as an opportunity to reach millions of Americans and promote “more environmentally sustainable behaviors.”
But it was back in 2009 when a newly elected President Barack Obama first began using his Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnership to foist the Gospel of Gaia on the United States.
Back then the only major media personality sending out alarms was Glenn Beck, then still on the Fox News payroll.
“Well, now President Obama is using the faith-based offices to promote the Gospel of Gaia on the United States and there’s nary a raised numb-skull voice?” Beck warned. (Fox News)
“Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships recently issued its report of recommendations and the Obama administration is about to take faith-based initiatives to a whole new level.
“The president’s council envisions the government and religious partnering to push the good news of global warming climate change and green issues. Yes, the religion of environmental and social justice. [Italics CFP’s]
“The council hopes the new EPA faith office will also help churches and other non-profits improve “access to financing,” including “establishing revolving loan programs or working with utility companies to help finance greening building projects.”
Though Pope Francis is catching the most publicity for his throwing in with the climate change movement, he’s not the only religious leader imposing climate change on church goers through preachings from the Sunday pulpit.
The Church of England has also traded soul saving for climate change advocacy, here.
But It was the pope’s hand-picked group on the environment that first laid claim to the supposed link between man-made global warming and slavery.
Pope Francis put that theory to work when he participated Wednesday in a meeting on climate change and slavery, where he addressed more than 70 mayors from different parts of the world. During his address in Spanish, he analyzed the two emergencies being addressed during the course of the two-day workshop: climate change and human trafficking.
“The culture of care of the environment is not only a “green” attitude, it’s “much more,” said the Pope. Therefore, he specified that to look after the environment is to have an attitude of human ecology. Ecology “is total, it is human,” he said. The Holy Father went on to explain that in the encyclical Laudato Si’, he pointed out “that man cannot be separated from the rest.” (Zenit, July 21, 2015)
“The two-day workshop, “Modern Slavery and Climate Change: the Commitment of the Cities,” is sponsored by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
“The Pontiff warned of “the boomerang effect that exists against man when the environment is mistreated.”
“In connection with the meeting underway, Francis said that he thought it was a good idea to invite the mayors because, the Pontiff pointed out, “one of the things most noted when the environment isn’t looked after is the unbridled growth of cities. It is a worldwide phenomenon. It is as if the heads grow big but increasingly with greater cordons of poverty and misery,” he explained.
“The Holy Father then mentioned another point in the encyclical, which criticizes the idolatry of technocracy, something that despoils work, which creates unemployment, he said, highlighting youth unemployment that affects so many European countries.
“Pope Francis presented the problems “when man doesn’t respect the relation with the Earth.” By way of example, he spoke of atomic energy – “it’s good, it can help,” but the negative part of this energy exists, such as “Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” he observed.
To conclude his address, the Holy Father called attention to the responsibility that those present have to combat the traffic of persons and to protect the environment. “The most serious and profound work is done from the periphery to the center,” he explained, in other words, “from you to the conscience of humanity.”
With statements like these, it’s easy to believe that Pope Francis has been proselytized by the Gaia-loving United Nations and their leagues of global warming alarmists.
What better way to add new recruits to the drive for man-made climate change than to persuade them at church service, even though Gaia is the proverbial dead opposite to the Gospel of Christ, for which untold millions of Christians still thirst.
Meanwhile, move over Al Gore, Pope Francis is here.
Why nothing about Turkey/USA about ISIS/PKK? I think that is actually the most important story this week.
