Deadly Fukushima Radiation up 50,000% as Elevated Radiation Levels Seen Across North America

Fukushima Radiation

(NaturalNews) Beta radiation levels are off the charts at monitoring sites all across North America, according to new reports. But experts are blaming these radiation spikes on practically everything except for Fukushima.

Data gathered from tracking units in California, Arizona, Illinois and elsewhere reveal radiation levels up to 50,000 percent higher than what was observed at the same time last year, and in some cases compared to levels seen this past summer. says the impacted sites are scattered throughout the country and aren’t just confined to the West Coast. Readings taken near Los Angeles; Chicago; Montgomery, Alabama; and Madison, Wisconsin, reveal total beta counts per minute (CPM) greatly exceeding the 1,000 CPM threshold considered by the government to be problematic.

In Tucson, Arizona, for instance, a 460 CPM reading was recently taken, which is more than 10 times higher than the reading taken last year on November 27. Similarly, Phoenix, Arizona’s 735 CPM reading measured more than 21 times higher than last year’s reading.

San Diego appears to be one of the hardest-hit areas, with a CPM reading of 650, as of October 1. This figure is 60 times higher than it was last year on the same date, despite the fact that San Diego’s normal background radiation rate typically hovers around 20 CPM.

“U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RadNet radiation monitors have detected renewed surges in atmospheric readings of dangerous beta radiation across the country,” explains about the seemingly inexplicable phenomenon.

“Over a dozen metropolitan test sites have registered four-month highs in’s most recent comprehensive assessment.”

Radiation testing site near Chicago records radiation levels thousands of times higher than maximum safety threshold

Commenting on the situation, one reader offered his own assessment that these readings are “astronomically high.” He was quick to denounce Fukushima as a possible cause, though, adding that this would only be possible if “something there has changed dramatically.”

Either way, the radiation levels being detected are still a major cause for concern. Anything above 100 CPM is considered by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to be a potential hazardous materials situation requiring the deployment of hazmat protocols.

At a testing site in St. Charles, Illinois, located just west of Chicago, a recent peak reading of 7,298 CPM caught the attention of some environmental activists, who chided the media for remaining silent on the issue.

This reading represents a nearly 7,300 percent radiation increase beyond CHP’s safety threshold. This site apparently experienced a series of massive radiation spikes beginning at approximately 1:00 am and lasting for as long as six hours.

California official blames plastic eating utensils for radiation spike, insist it can’t be Fukushima

Back in California, county officials in San Mateo recorded radiation levels at a local beach measuring 100 micro-REM per hour, or 1 microsievert per hour, which is five times the normal amount. According to the Half Moon Bay Review, local environmental health director Dean Peterson was quick to denounce that this level poses any risk to human health.

When asked where this radiation might be coming from, Peterson admitted that he is “befuddled,” but also denied that Fukushima could possibly be a cause. Instead, he says, it may be due to an excess of disposable eating utensils polluting the area.

“I honestly think the end result of this is that it’s just higher levels of background radiation,” stated Peterson to the HMB Review, adding that red-painted disposable eating utensils can also contribute to localized radiation spikes.

100 Million Americans Could Lose Power in Major Sun Storm

Millions of Americans face catastrophic loss of electrical power during a future magnetic space storm that will disrupt the electric grid and cause cascading infrastructure failures, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document.

DHS’ Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) stated in an internal 2012 fact sheet outlining its response plan for severe “space weather” that the actual impact and damage from a future solar storm is not known.

“An analysis of the space weather impacts indicates that the greatest challenge will be to provide life-saving and life-sustaining resources for large numbers of people that experience long-term power outage from damage to the U.S. electrical grid,” the FEMA document, dated March 1, 2012, states.

The FEMA fact sheet noted the findings of a 2010 study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the agency that monitors sun storms, warning that an extreme solar storm could leave “130 million people without power for years,” and destroy or damage more than 300 hard-to-replace electrical grid transformers.

Major solar storms are rare. Two major solar disruption events took place in 1859 and 1921, times when electricity was less prevalent than today.

The study said a future solar storm like the great magnetic storm of May 1921 would black out most states east of the Mississippi River along with most states in the Pacific Northwest.

The long-term loss of electrical power likely would produce catastrophic loss of life.

British Company Offers No Reassurance to Concerns of Proposal to Release GM Mosquitoes in U.S.

By Heather Callaghan | Natural Blaze

Last Thursday, a town hall meeting at Harvey Government Center in Key West drew a large crowd that erupted in opposition to a proposal to release genetically modified mosquitoes this coming Spring. It’s a proposal from a seemingly strange choice – the United Kingdom.

Proposal to Release GM Mosquitoes in U.S.

British company Oxitec is petitioning the U.S. Government for permission to release male GE Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that contain a gene whereby they die unless receiving an antidote in the form of antibiotic tetracycline. The males released will live long enough to mate, but the offspring will die before maturation. The proposal that is now gaining ground has been in preparation for three years, with significant involvement by Wellcome Trust. In 2012, the plan to go through was thwarted when a resolution didn’t pass.

Of course the company insists that the technology is totally safe.

The expressed idea behind using Key Haven for the trial run is to eradicate the possibility of dengue and chikungunya viruses – yet, the area hasn’t experienced dengue since 2010. The FDA, CDC, USDA, and EPA are in tandem reviewing the process.

Among the most vocal opponents is Mila de Mier, whose massive petition caught a lot of attention.

She says:

There are lots of questions that need to be answered. This is bigger than a couple people raising objections; the government is trying to do an experiment with the people of Florida.

Residents have listed several concerns:

  • The Aedes aegypti mosquito is not native to the Keys.
  • Future resistance problems when certain mosquitoes don’t actually die off [and what problems would that pose for potential disease too]?
  • The mosquitoes’ effect on the bat population that feeds on them.
  • Where are the peer-reviewed safety studies to support Oxitec’s safety claims?
  • Could other disease-carrying mosquitoes fill in the void left by a dwindled Aedes aegypti population?

Yahoo News adds the following:

Critics also contend that Oxitec cannot completely sort mutated insects by gender, resulting in the release of biting females into the environment (male mosquitoes do not bite humans).

Oxitec spokesperson Chris Creese said it was possible some females could get released but being bitten by one was no different than being bitten by a wild female….

She said of the five different dengue viruses/subtypes:

They are all transmitted by this species of mosquito – So yes, it is clear the virus will mutate. But if you can stop the mosquito, you can stop the disease.


The safety of the GM mosquitoes has been reviewed by regulatory agencies in Brazil, Malaysia, Cayman and Panama…and none of the agencies determined any [increased] risk to human health or the environment.

Elite Think Tank Admits to Ongoing Climate Engineering Experiments

Elite Think Tank Admits to Ongoing Climate Engineering Experiments

Elite Think Tank Admits to Ongoing Climate Engineering Experiments

By Nicholas West | Activist Post

Elite Think Tank Admits to Ongoing Climate EngineeringIf we could experiment with the atmosphere and literally play God, it’s very tempting to a scientist – Kenyan earth scientist Richard Odingo

For those who know about the history of geoengineering – aka chemtrails – you might be noticing a spate of admissions from the halls of establishment science and government that the “conspiracy theory” is no longer … it is a fact.

Perhaps the efforts of independent researchers have forced such open disclosure, at least putting us over the hurdle of abject denial. However, the narrative being created for mainstream media consumption is disingenuous at best, and full-throttle manipulation at worst. Case in point is an admission from The Royal Society that geoengineering experiments are being debated for full rollout even in the absence of policy restrictions.

The elite UK think-tank, The Royal Society, has for years openly discussed control over the planet’s weather.  Their 2011 propaganda press release entitled “Who Decides?” is an overtly Orwellian exercise in problem-reaction-solution that, naturally, argues for a cabal of technocratic insiders to implement godlike power over the unwashed masses who are threatened both by their own ignorance as well as “rogue elements” that could hijack weather manipulation technology.

Mainstream outlet The Verge wound up echoing these supposed concerns in their 2013 article, “Weather wars: who should be allowed to engineer our climate?” which has the subtitle, “Geoengineering could be the silver bullet in fighting climate change — or the start of something even worse.”

Let’s bypass for a moment that there still is intense scientific debate about the legitimacy of those who assign climate change to certain man-made activities, and instead look to these attempts to portray a full consensus that leapfrogs us to do-or-die solutions.

Even though the above story appears to have been originally disseminated by the Associated Press, what was not mentioned in any of the establishment outlets is the back-story that indicates a much longer timeline in getting to the conclusion that geoengineering is possibly the only hope that remains for saving the earth.

The Royal Society published a paper further back in 2009, which was based upon a 12-month study; the results were given the title: “Geoengineering the climate: science, governance and uncertainty.”

If we look at the recommendations from this report, then look at what is being discussed today as something supposedly novel, an agenda emerges. The report recommends:

  • Parties to the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – Ed.) should make increased efforts towards mitigating and adapting to climate change and in particular to agreeing to global emissions reductions of at least 50% on 1990 levels by 2050 and more thereafter;
  • CDR (Carbon Dioxide Removal – Ed.) and SRM (Solar Radiation Management – Ed.) geoengineering methods should only be considered as part of a wider package of options for addressing climate change. CDR methods should be regarded as preferable to SRM methods.
  • Relevant UK government departments, in association with the UK Research Councils, should together fund a 10 year geoengineering research programme at a level of the order of £10M per annum.
  • The Royal Society, in collaboration with international science partners, should develop a code of practice for geoengineering research and provide recommendations to the international scientific community for a voluntary research governance framework.

Citing the slow path of debate and legislation, the panel of “twelve leading academics representing science, economics, law and social science” advocate for climate engineering as a “final hope.” This was 2009, of course; so when we read their latest press release  “Atmospheric particles can brighten cold clouds as well as warm ones” an otherwise innocuous title should trigger an alarm.

Indeed, here we see that what is bullet-pointed above – and discussed within the study – as a non-preferable, potentially dangerous tinkering with global systems is underway.

For the first time, modeling research led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory found that atmospheric particles can brighten cold clouds in the Arctic. Using simulations, they showed that low clouds over the Arctic may be brightened by deliberately injecting small particles known as aerosols. It’s already well known that injecting aerosols into low clouds over the warm ocean can, in some circumstances, reduce the amount of sunlight that reaches the surface. The concept, untested over the Arctic until now, is called marine cloud brightening, and it can also happen when ships send exhaust into the atmosphere.

The full report consists of 14 articles discussing several climate engineering methods, some openly available here (others are locked). There appears to be a consistent message that the politics of proper governance could impede much-needed field experimentation.

However, there is additional vague language similar to the section above which leaves uncertainty about what exactly has been modeled by computers and what might have already been tested in the open. What cannot be doubted, however, is that the volume of scientific articles now published indicates a real agenda with massive scope, a massive budget and massive consequences.

Also clear is a reinforcement of the meme that climate scientists are proceeding with caution – a notion highlighted recently by Harvard, but which has very little basis in the general history of scientific endeavors that have claimed a do-or-die right to proceed (nuclear, GMO, vaccines, etc.).

As with all things secretive, governmental, and possessing a military component, we only can do our best to independently research cause and effect. Such research by those who have dedicated their energy to uncovering the climate change/geoengineering agenda seem to conclude that engineering the planet’s weather is not a “final hope” … but more likely to be our Finale.

Human disruption of the environment

Thinking Is An Expensive Occupation

Raising unsettling questions and providing disturbing explanations seldom meet with accolades. For example, Guy McPherson is a University of Arizona scientist who has been studying human disruption of the environment and climate for 30 years. Many human caused disruptions have developed into local or regional disasters, but now the question is whether the planet itself is endangered. Is human activity bringing about human extinction?

This is not a welcome question, and those who explore it are branded as “controversial.”
Dahr Jamail interviewed Professor McPherson and asked him: “What do you say to people who call you extreme for talking about this?”

Professor McPherson answers: “I’m just reporting the results from other scientists. Nearly all of these results are published in established literature. I don’t think anybody is taking issue with NASA or Nature, or Science, or the Proceedings of National Sciences . . . the others I report are reasonably well-known and come from legitimate sources like NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration], other NASA sources etc. . . . I’m not making this information up. I’m just connecting a couple of dots, and it’s something many people have difficulty with.”

In the West truth is dying, because anyone who departs from the official line is branded “controversial.” In other words, truth or the search for it is controversial. People who persist in chasing after truth or alternative explanations to the official line are discredited by those who are not served by the truth or alternative explanations. Whistleblowers, once protected by federal law, have been turned into traitors.

I have no position on the causes of climate change or Professor McPherson’s prognosis.
My point isn’t that he or the experts he cites are correct. The point is that talking about what is possibly a serious problem is stymied by name-calling and shooting the messenger.

I experience it all the time. For example, on December 3 in the London Telegraph, a reporter, Hamish MacDonald said that I am “controversial” for raising questions about “the US government’s reaction to the spread of the [ebola] virus” and for “questioning the official story of the September 11 terrorist attacks.” In other words, believe the official line because independent thinking is “controversial.”

It seems odd that a British reporter would settle on his own on me and on University of Illinois law professor Francis Boyle as examples of controversial bloggers. Perhaps he was handed the story by the CIA, as German journalist Udo Ulfkotte confesses he often was.

The absence of thought is how humanity walks into armageddon. But we mustn’t think or we are controversial. Not only must we not think, we must not report on the thinking of others. Like Professor McPherson who is “just reporting the results from other scientists,” I made myself “controversial” by merely reporting the findings of architects, engineers, physicists, chemists, first responders, pilots, and former high government officials concerning the destruction of three WTC skyscrapers and difficult flight maneuvers by inexperienced pilots. We are supposed instead to dismiss these thousands of experts and their professional experience as “conspiracy kooks” or worse. Remember, British prime minister David Cameron declared skeptics of the 9/11 official line to be as dangerous as Islamic State terrorists.

In other words, it is controversial to report that a team of scientists led by a professor of nano-chemistry at the University of Copenhagen found reacted and unreacted nano-thermite in the dust of the destroyed skyscrapers and that Building 7 fell at free fall acceleration, hitherto associated only with controlled demolition.

I am certainly skeptical of the official explanation of 9/11. As a former government official, I find it difficult to believe that a few young Saudi Arabians operating without the benefit of an intelligence service could outwit the entire National Security apparatus of the Western world. Moreover, if such an implausible event occurred, there would have been demands from the White House and Congress for a thorough investigation of the failure. Instead, the White House resisted any investigation, and in place of an investigation, a political committee wrote down the government’s story as the unexamined truth. This is not a believable response to such a humiliating blow suffered by “the world’s only superpower.” Why is it controversial to make this point?

A spoon-fed, no-think society has been created for us, and no one is supposed to think. Reminds me of a science fiction story I read many years ago in which at some point in their development children were tested for the thinking gene. If they had it, they were put down in order to protect the society from dangerous thoughts.

Drawing on my education and experience, I look beyond the propaganda for the real explanations. I might not always be correct, but my inquiries are not agenda-driven in behalf of some interest or the other, whether material or ideological. In order to continue, I need your support. I am constantly attacked by trolls and Reagan-haters, and if the Western intelligence services are at work presenting me as a target for establishment-tamed journalists, trying to wake up an insouciant people is not a pleasant task.

500 more Dead Sea Lions; Fukushima Radiation Continues to Spread Across Ocean

500 more Dead Sea Lions; Fukushima Radiation Continues to Spread Across Ocean

500 more Dead Sea Lions; Fukushima Radiation Continues to Spread Across Ocean

By Jonathan Benson | Natural News

(NaturalNews) Another mysterious wave of dead sea animals has washed ashore in Peru, the possible consequence of ongoing radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility in Japan. BBC News reports that 500 dead sea lions were recently discovered on Peru’s northern coastline, some 250 miles north of the capital city of Lima, with no obvious explanation as to why this occurred.

500 more Dead Sea Lions; Fukushima Radiation Continues

The latest of several mass die-offs in recent years, the rotting corpses were found on Anconcillo Beach, located in Peru’s Ancash region. Both young and old sea lions were found at the site, which the local governor blamed on fishermen who may have poisoned them while they searched for food at the shoreline. Others like the environmental group Orca, however, say oil exploration is probably the cause.

As investigations continue, a definitive cause of the deaths has yet to be determined. The Maritime Institute (Imarpe), in a government report, denied that oil exploration had anything to do with the deaths. Meanwhile, Peruvian police are reportedly looking into other possible causes of the deaths, including entanglement in fishing nets or the accidental ingestion of plastic.

Fukushima radiation still harming Pacific sea life

But another possible cause that is deliberately being ignored is radiation poisoning from Fukushima, which continues to be a problem in some areas of the Pacific Ocean. Radioactive plumes are still traveling eastward across the Pacific, affecting everything in their path.

Nuclear expert Arnie Gunderson, during a recent episode of Radio Ecoshock, warned that the worst is still yet to come from Fukushima. He reiterated this warning during a subsequent airing of the Nuclear Hotseat show, emphasizing that both soil and groundwater are threatened by these radioactive plumes, which will continue to cause problems for many decades.

“We are not at the peak,” he stated, noting that two radioactive plumes are currently traveling up and down the West Coast, one near Canada and the other near Oregon and California. “It’s still coming, and it will continue to come as long as Fukushima continues to bleed into the Pacific.”

Mysterious animal deaths continue as governments deny Fukushima link

Several months prior to this latest sea lion discovery, at least 200 other sea lions were found dead even further north in the Piura region of Peru. Several dead dolphins and sea turtles, as well as dozens of pelicans, were also strewn among the mysterious marine wreckage, which also went unexplained by authorities.

And back in 2012, just one year after Fukushima, hundreds of dead dolphins were found along another beach in Peru, also without explanation. Each of these events is still technically under investigation, though any consideration of Fukushima is apparently off the table as government authorities attempt to blame other less likely factors.

“[Fukushima is] going to bleed for decades, if not centuries [into the Pacific],” added Gunderson during one of his radio segments. “There will still be a huge residual amount of radiation in the soil and in the groundwater so that the site will continue to bleed into the Pacific a century or more.”

The White House is singling out Sonoma County along with San Francisco, Boston, Seattle and 12 other cities and regions for leading their peers in efforts to address climate change.

The winners of the competition for cities will receive additional government resources to deal with global warming’s impacts, including data tools and a “dedicated coordinator” to help cities access federal funding.
Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Portland, Ore., made the cut. So did Knoxville, Tenn., Montpelier, Vt., and Oberlin, Ohio. California’s Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe is recognized for cutting energy consumption, while Dubuque, Iowa, is addressing flooding issues.

Washington, D.C., and its Maryland and Virginia suburbs are being recognized together, as is Kansas City in Kansas and Missouri. Other winners include Florida’s Broward County and Michigan’s Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. Source

The trained corporate government agent will help our cities access federal funding to expedite local corporate governments (cities and counties) enforcement requirements to lower OUR green house gas emissions, one house at a time, one structure at a time – every building across the country. Environmental Code ENFORCEMENT officers WILL be knocking on your door to conduct energy audits, and audit scores will be placed on a national data base to track energy reduction compliance, and more.

Miami Area Nuclear Plant In Partial Shutdown After Steam Leak

Miami Area Nuclear Plant In Partial Shutdown After Steam Leak

Miami Area Nuclear Plant In Partial Shutdown After Steam Leak

By Sayer Ji | Green Med Info

Perhaps the most dangerous nuclear reactor in the U.S. is in partial shutdown following the discovery of a steam leak.

South Florida’s ailing Turkey Point nuclear power station is in the news again, with Unit 4, one of its two reactors, taken offline Sunday due to a steam leak, according to a Dec. 1st update released by Industrial Info Resources online.  Conspicuously, as of the writing of this article, there is no indication that this highly concerning event has received mainstream media coverage.

Nuclear Plant In Partial Shutdown

In a recent report, Is Miami on the Brink of a Nuclear Disaster?, we discussed the imminent possibility of a Fukushima-style meltdown at Florida Power & Light’s Turkey Point facility, only 41 miles south of Miami near Homestead; a reactor so primitively designed that it uses a 168-mile network of open air canals to cool it’s ancient reactors (built in 1972), reminiscent of a Medieval moat system.

Back in 2011, an online article published at Miami New Times titled, “Five reasons Turkey Point could be the next nuclear disaster,” identified the Turkey Point facility as the country’s next most likely reactor to undergo a full-scale meltdown; one which would make Miami uninhabitable, virtually overnight. It is an article well worth reading to get up to date on the gravity of the situation there.

A battery of recent reports reveals that the Turkey Point plant is in an ongoing struggle to keep its reactors cool enough to prevent a mandatory shut down; they are still in operation only because they lobbied for special permission to violate water temperature safety thresholds from the previous 100 degree limit up to their new one of 103 degrees:

Even if we assume the Turkey Point facility will pass through this year’s cooling crises without reaching the 104 degree temperature threshold for immediate shut down, the problem will not stop there. With increased canal temperatures linked to accumulating salinity and an inadequate water supply within its canal system, climate change, a storm surge from a hurricane or tidal wave associated with an off shore seismic event, a power outage generated by a class X solar flare, or simply sea level rise – any of these could theoretically permanently incapacitate the reactors main and diesel back-up cooling systems, leading to a meltdown. What will follow will be irreversible, devastating and beyond remediation.

Worker: They’re Covering up How Much Contamination is Flowing into Ocean


Fukushima Worker: They’re covering up how much contamination is flowing into ocean — Scientist: We are measuring higher radiation levels off Japan — Plume near California already exceeds expectations, and will keep rising for years to come — TV: “Cleanup can’t be done… They lied from the start, Tepco is a den of inequity”

Fukushima Worker: They’re Covering up How Much Contamination is Flowing

  • Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: “My biggest concern is what’s going on in Japan today, and how that might… make its way across to our coast… We know it’s still leaking because we’re measuring higher levels off Japan to this day… Even just the basic question, “How much radioactivity was released at Fukushima?” I can’t answer that today. We may never be able to because of the lack of sampling… particularly in the ocean.”
  • Reporter: The models predict cesium levels to increase over the next 2 or 3 years.
  • Buesseler: “If the levels were higher, we’d be very concerned about what’s going on today… We need to be out there making measurements of what happened 3 and a half years ago and how it’s being moved across the ocean.”

PBS interview with Buesseler: “If we get up to about 7 Bq/m³, that’s beyond what I’m actually expecting.” Watch here ..

Test results from August 2014 show that just offshore California, radioactive cesium levels have reached nearly 9 Bq/m³ (Cs-137 @ 6.9 Bq/m³; Cs-134 @ 1.7 Bq/m³). As reported above, these levels are predicted to continue to increase for years to come.

Euronews interview with Tepco engineer: “Tepco has lost the trust of the Japanese people. They are covering up how badly the groundwater has been contaminated… When there is a leak into the water around the tanks, they don’t have to say anything. The cleanup is far from finished. There is an enormous amount of radiation debris remaining. Tepco said it will take 40 years, I believe it will take far longer.” Watch here ..

Euronews interview with Naoto Matsumura, farmer who has remained in evacuation zone: “It’s been 3 years now, the situation hasn’t changed. After the explosion, nobody knew what to do. Tepco and the government didn’t know how to deal with it — yet the world still wants nuclear energy, this is ridiculous… A cleanup can’t be done. Tepco lied from the start; Tepco is a den of inequity.

Monster Sunspot May Unleash Powerful Solar Flares

Monster Sunspot May Unleash Powerful Solar Flares

Monster Sunspot May Unleash Powerful Solar Flares

By Calla Cofield, Staff Writer |

The largest sunspot to appear on Earth’s nearest star in more than two decades is once again pointed at the planet, and it will likely kick-start solar storms, NASA scientists say.

The massive sunspot, previously known as Active Region 12192, was turned toward Earth in October and early November, but rotated out of view. While it was on the Earth-facing side of the sun, the sunspot did not produce any coronal mass ejections — hot bursts of material ejected into space at 4 million mph (6.4 million km/h) — which have the potential to damage satellites and power grids. Now the active region has rotated back around to face Earth again, and although the sunspot has shrunk in size, it will likely be disruptive, NASA scientist Holly Gilbert told during a video interview about the massive sunspot.

“This time around, it’s more likely to have some coronal mass ejections associated with it, even though the solar flares might be smaller,” said Gilbert, chief of the Solar Physics Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. “We have a good idea, based on the structure of that magnetic field and the sunspot, that it’s very possible that it will create some midlevel flares.” [The Biggest Solar Flares of 2014]

Video: NASA scientist Holly Gilbert Interview

Sunspots are blemishlike regions on the sun where magnetic fields become very tightly bundled. The magnetic fields block light and heat from passing through the sunspot region, causing them to appear dark compared to the surrounding area.

Video: NASA | Five X-class Flares from Oct. 19-27, 2014

AR 12192 has been renamed AR 12209 now that it is once again on the Earth-facing side of the sun. The sunspot was out of view of the Earth for about two weeks before reappearing. It is still large enough for 10 Earths to fit inside it, Gilbert said. In terms of size, it ranks 33rd largest of 32,908 active regions recorded since 1874, and it’s the largest sunspot recorded since 1990.

Chemtrails and the Nuclear Connection

Chemtrails and the Nuclear Connection

Chemtrails and the Nuclear Connection

By By Ethan Indigo Smith and Andy Whiteley

The complexity of nuclear experimentation is beyond the pale of postmodern human comprehension. It also reveals, although we would like to believe otherwise, our inability or unwillingness to consider the unseen. Whether it is invisible because of ethereal origins or because it is nano-sized poison does not matter; collectively we tend to obfuscate the unseen. Nuclear experimentation also reveals our collective inability to conceptualize time, and to understand just how long nuclear radiation lasts in our environment – and how long our karma lasts.

Chemtrails and the Nuclear Connection

This short-sightedness was not always the case. Indigenous cultures across Turtle Island, A.K.A. North America, knew they would one day return home to the spirit world, and that their stay here on earth was equivalent to the blink of an eye. So they considered the Rule of Seven Generations when implementing procedures that would alter the planet in any way, beginning with harvesting herbs, to ensure their society’s long term sustainability. In fact, the indigenous people were so considerate of their peoples’ future as to make sure there would be enough herbs left seven generations from the harvest. Understanding their place in the delicate ecosystem, the Turtle Islanders contemplated the unseen and the distant future, always.

Today we have collectively foregone such considerations. And it was no accident that brought us here.

The Seen and the Unseen

In order for institutions to institute a military industrial complex, a prison industrial complex, a pharmacological industrial complex and so on, humanity had to become disconnected from its unseen reality. Whether ethereal or too small to fathom, we have been conditioned over time to disbelieve in the unseen, to trust only 5 of our senses, and to prize rational logic (which cannot itself perceive the unseen) over intuition. Then, with only ‘the seen’ at front of the collective mind, the unseen dangers of nuclear industry experimentation have become whitewashed in public discussion, and radiation monitors disabled by government, while unprecedented levels of radioactivity poisons our only world.

It is an inarguable fact that nuclear radiation and life on our planet cannot co-exist in the same space. It is another inarguable fact that nuclear radiation takes hundreds of thousands of years to break down, creating life-threatening environmental conditions not just today, but for seven thousand generations to come. Yet, despite the industry’s inability to avoid total meltdowns every few years, nuke advocates continue to espouse nuclear as a “safe” energy alternative, employing a program of pseudo-science to confuse the logical minds of humanity, creating the scene for these dangerous yet financially profitable (to some) practices to continue. Many pro-nukers even go so far as to suggest that ‘low dose’ nuclear radiation is somehow good for us! But understand, this theory – known as the “Hormesis Effect” – is deliberate industry quackery, and anyone who tells you radiation is good for you is either an industry stooge, or has been conned by one.

It is well proven through history that the human body (correctly) perceives radiation as a threat to its existence. If you don’t believe this premise, ask the good folks of Chernobyl, Hanford, Three Mile Island, and Fukushima (among myriad others). The external threat of radiation sends the human body’s immune response into overdrive. The short term result of this intense immune activity can be the improvement of other existing ailments, but our immune systems are not designed to run permanently in this state of stress so, over time, health inevitably deteriorates.

Studies have clearly linked radiation exposure to increased rates of cancer, thyroid damage, skin complaints, endocrine disruption, pregnancy issues (such as miscarriage) and emotional trauma, which itself negatively impacts the body.[source] In 2012, “nearly 36 per cent of children in the nuclear disaster-affected Fukushima Prefecture had abnormal thyroid growths.” [source]

“This leak is very serious,” said Dr. Janette Sherman, an Alexandria, Virginia-based physician who specializes in radioactive and toxic exposure. Dr. Sherman, who edited an in-depth study of health effects on cleanup workers in the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the former Soviet Union, said she is concerned that the cleanup crew at Fukushima Daiichi may face long-term health risks. She also raised the prospect of the radiation’s as-yet unknown effects on fish and other marine life in the Pacific. [source]

In 1990, Dr. Keith F. Baverstock, Head of the Department for Radiation and Health at the European office of the WHO, visited the Gomel Region of Belarus, an area significantly affected by nuclear fall-out from the Chernobyl disaster. At the time, Dr. Baverstock noted the dramatic increase in disease, especially in very young children. Writes Baverstock:

Children exposed to Chernobyl fallout were experiencing chronic adult diseases of the respiratory and blood systems, gastritis, nervous system diseases, cardiovascular diseases and other diseases of internal organs. In general, in 1991, the level of serious illness in children was about 6 to 7 times above normal.

In reality, no one on this planet would engage in nuclear experimentation if they valued the unseen, the spiritual and the ethereal. No one would engage in nuclear experimentation if they practiced the Rule of Seven Generations. No one would engage in nuclear experimentation if they valued life on earth over unnecessary toxic energy systems and devices of war.

We digress from our hypothesis, but feel it’s important to note how the following problem was allowed to occur — by the transformation of our collective mind state from a culture rooted in localized permaculture and sustainable practices into a barbarous war culture that knowingly poisons its environment in the name of energy and armory, and then wonders why ill health is so prevalent.

It is also important to point out that nuclear experimentation knows no borders; it negatively impacts all life, and destroys entire sections of our planet’s interconnected ecosystem. Nuclear experimentation is therefore not a means to self-support, or self-defense, but an attack on everything — on life itself.

The Effects of Radiation on Our Health

The Nuclear Fallout

There have been 2,000 atomic and nuclear detonations on every strata of earth since the first experiment in New Mexico, July, 1945 and the two most infamous devices dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki later that summer. That makes 69 years of radiological contamination from nuclear detonation experiments alone, each one inevitably releasing billions of atomic echoes we cannot comprehend entirely. The Manhattan Project scientists actually debated amongst themselves whether or not the detonation would cause a chain reaction igniting the entire atmosphere, but did it anyway. After the blast there was a radiated ‘blast zone’, an area destroyed forever, and also radioactive fallout that fell well beyond the designated blast zone; deadly dust kicked up by, and elements formed in, the detonations.

China & Others Can Cripple US Power Grid, NSA Admits for the First Time

China & Others Can Cripple US Power Grid, NSA Admits for the First Time

China & Others Can Cripple US Power Grid, NSA Admits for the First Time


The head of the National Security Agency warned Congress on Thursday that China and “one or two” other nations currently possess the capability of crippling the American power grid through cyberattacks.

Speaking before the House intelligence committee Thursday morning, Adm. Michael Rogers — the top official at both the NSA and United States Cyber Command — said that major systems, like the infrastructure that provides power to houses and facilities across the country, could be taken offline by state-sponsored hackers from abroad.

U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Michael S. RogersCertain nations are regularly performing electronic “reconnaissance,” Rogers warned, in an effort to be well placed within utility systems in the event that the networks relied on by chemical facilities, water treatment plants and other critical infrastructure components are ordered to be taken offline by a foreign government.

“All of that leads me to believe it is only a matter of when, not if, we are going to see something dramatic,” the NSA chief said.

Leading figures within the American intelligence community and Congress have long warned of potentially catastrophic repercussions if such networks should happen to be penetrated and pulverized by foreign actors with malicious intent, but Rogers’ remarks this week are among the most dire ever from not just individual well placed within the administration, but a person arguably most qualified to testify as much.

“We’re watching multiple nation states invest in this capability,” Rogers warned the committee, specifically naming only China as one of the countries considered to now have such power.

Stunning Photos Of Record Snow Covering Upstate New York: 100 Total Inches Of Snow Expected

Stunning Photos Of Record Snow Covering Upstate New York: 100 Total Inches Of Snow Expected

Stunning Photos Of Record Snow Covering Upstate New York: 100 Total Inches Of Snow Expected


As previously reported, the anticipated Polar Vortex 2.0 has struck, pushing temperatures in all 50 states to below freezing, while heavy snow prompted a state of emergency in western New York and contributed to the deaths of four people. According to Reuters, it was the coldest November morning across the country since 1976, according to Weather Bell Analytics, a meteorologist consulting firm. It remains to be seen how many GDP percentage points were wiped out as a result, unless of course, this time it will be different from last winter. Typically, such cold is not seen until late December through February.

But it was the situation in upstate New York, especially around Buffalo and parts of Erie County, where things got most dire and where 60 inches (1.5 m) of snow accumulated, with more falling, said Steven Welch of the National Weather Service near Buffalo. Snow fell at a rate of up to five inches (13 cm) an hour and some areas approached the U.S. record for 24-hour snowfall totals of 76 inches, or over 6 feet, the NWS said.

The record cumulative snowfall through Wednesday is shown in the image below:

Record cumulative snowfall through Wednesday

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency for 10 counties. National Guard troops were deployed to help residents cope with the storm.

The good news, according to CBS, is that the Tuesday storm is fading away: deputy Erie County Executive Rich Tobe told reporters Wednesday morning that the storm had begun to move toward Buffalo’s northern suburbs, and was expected to leave 2-5 more inches of snow in its wake. But he said the break would be short-lived for the hard-hit southern Buffalo suburbs, where forecasters were calling for more snow on Thursday, as much as three feet more, for a total of up to 100 inches over four days – a year’s worth for the region. Still, there should be an 18 hour window to clear roads, he said.

And then it is all set to flip again, with the current freezing period expected to be followed by a “dramatic warming trend this weekend,” raising the possibility of flooding from melting snow.

One of the main culprits for the heavy snow accumulation was the so called “lake-effect” which created a stark divide: In downtown Buffalo and north of the city, there was a mere dusting of precipitation, while in parts south, snow was everywhere. The snow band that brought the snow was very much evident throughout the day as gray clouds persistently hovered over the southern part of the city. The band was so apparent that the wall of snow could be seen from a mile away.


A dramatic time-lapse of the snow-wall can be seen in the video below:

But nothing compares to the photos on the ground as shocked residents woke up to find themselves literally burried under 6 or more feet  of snow. Here is a sample of what they saw on Tuesday morning courtesy of Albany Meteorologist Greg Pollak:

The Truth About Fukushima The Japanese Government Is Hiding

The Truth About Fukushima The Japanese Government Is Hiding

The Truth About Fukushima The Japanese Government Is Hiding

By Sophie McAdam

And nobody seems to be saying much about it

This special report from Vice should have the world´s attention. While the Japanese government (and mainstream media) continues to ignore the horror unleashed by the Fukushima nuclear plant tragedy, recent reports coming out of Japan paint a whole different picture. Yes, we should be freaking out.

Vice travel to Fukushima to see the nuclear plant, meet some locals, and interview experts. According to ex-politician Hiroshi Kawauchi: “The nuclear reactor has emitted airborne radioactive cesium levels that exceed the Hiroshima A-bomb by 168 times, but we´re always told everything is OK.” 168 times? The consequences for groundwater and seawater contamination, not to mention the food we eat and the air we breathe, are unimaginable and will get worse with each generation.

The nuclear reactor has emitted airborne radioactive cesium levels that exceed the Hiroshima A-bomb by 168 times.

Fukushima has the potential to be a global nuclear catastrophe unlike anything we have ever seen before. The Japanese government has covered up the truth, putting residents at great risk for many generations to come.  90 million tonnes of radioactive water is leaking into the ground and the ocean. Another YouTube video showing latest reports from Fukushima this week paints a terrifying picture, although the mainstream press remains quiet.

Please share this short report to raise awareness and put pressure on Japan´s government and the UN to do something about Fukushima, the worst nuclear disaster in history, and one that affects the whole world.

Global Warming? Record Breaking Cold Blankets United States

Global Warming? Record Breaking Cold Blankets United States

Global Warming? Record Breaking Cold Blankets United States

By Red Pill Reports

Something went wrong with global warming. It got cold. And the plan to tax ALL of us for CO2? (It’s what plants breath folks.) Oh, now it’s “Climate Change”.


Tuesday morning, America ‘as a whole’ awoke to the coldest it has been in November since 1976 — 38 years ago. The Lower-48 or CONUS spatially average temperature plummeted overnight to only 19.4°F typical of mid-winter not November 18th! Data

An astounding 226-million Americans will experience at or below freezing temperatures (32°F) on Tuesday as well — if you venture outdoors.

More than 85% of the surface area of the Lower-48 reached or fell below freezing Tuesday morning. All 50-states saw at or below freezing temperatures on Tuesday.

Record lows from Idaho to Nebraska and Iowa south to Texas and east through the Great Lakes, the eastern 2/3 of the US will shatter decades-long and in some cases, century-long records. Temperatures east of the Rockies will be 20-40°F below climate normals.

Compared to normal, temperatures over the past several days have dropped off a cliff — to 10°C below climate normal — more anomalous than even during the #polarvortex of early January. Anomaly Chart . November is shaping up to be a colder-than-normal month by a lot.

Brisk northwesterly winds in the Great Lakes will cause heavy lake effect snow which will be measured in feet from Michigan to New York state. Monday, almost half of the Lower-48 was blanketed in snow. Please visit Mashable and Washington Post Capital Weather Gang for daily updates.

Cold air pushes east thru Wednesday with a reinforcing shot of Arctic air with origin from the North Pole & Siberia to arrive on Thursday in the Great Lakes. Any relief is is 5-6 days away as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Detroit will struggle to rise above freezing until Saturday.

Climate has always changed, and it’s cyclical. Although there are those who believe there has been a change in the jet stream due to a slowing, or stopping of the Gulf Stream Loop that took place as a result of Corexit being used to hide a majority of the gulf oil spill.
