Disaster Calendar 2011 – August 29

[August 29, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,661 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • The U.S. Atlantic Coast. IRENE has claimed 37 lives in 11 U.S. states in addition to two others in Dominican Republic and one in Puerto Rico.
    • An estimated 600,000 homes have been damaged as a result of the storm.
    • Many swollen rivers are yet to crest, and more flooding could be expected in the next few days.
    • Damage from the storm could reach $20 billion, according to Standard & Poor’s Senior Economist.
    • The storm submerged the rural town of Brattleboro, Vermont (pop: 12,000).
    • At least 5.2 million customers are still without power along the East Coast.

Other Global Disasters

  • Uganda. Landslides triggered by extreme rain in eastern Uganda have killed at least 24 people and left 12 others missing, reports said.
  • Ibadan, Nigeria. At least two dozen people have been killed and tens of thousands displaced by flooding in the southwestern Nigerian city of Ibadan and surrounding areas, reports said.
  • Guatemala. At least 83 Guatemalans died after being deliberately infected with syphilis and gonorrhoea viruses in the 1940s, according to a presidential commission in Washington.
    • “US government scientists infected hundreds of Guatemalan prisoners, psychiatric patients and sex workers to study the effects of penicillin,” a report said.
    • About 5,500 Guatemalans were involved in the research, but none had consented.
  • Fukushima, Japan. Japan’s education ministry has set a new standard for radiation, allowing up to 1 microsievert per hour  in schools, a report said.
    • The government is breaching international standards. The maximum radiation allowed under international standards is 0.11 microsievert per hour (1 millisievert per year).
