Fire Earth

Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Another Nuclear Disaster in the Making?

There Ain’t No Such Thing as a Free Nuclear Dump Site!

Nuclear Wastes from the manufacture of atom bombs threaten a Missouri Neighborhood.

Radioactive leftovers from the atom bomb program in WW2 (and Cold War era) are buried at a landfill site in St. Louis, Missouri.

The West Lake Landfill, declared an EPA Superfund site in 1990, is associated with elevated rates of rare cancers.

An subsurface smoldering fire, which has been burning at an adjacent site called Bridgeton Landfill for five years, has now crept to less than 300 meters of the radwaste burial site.

In addition to the threat from the underground fire, a grass fire erupted less than 70 meters of the radioactive waste over the weekend.

The entire region sits near a seismic fault line.

Fleeing Thermonuclear Bombs and King Tides

Threatened by rising sea levels, Bikini Islanders request US refuge

More than 1,000 Bikini islanders have asked the United States to relocate them as rising sea levels threaten their homes.

The US government relocated the residents from Bikini Atoll to a nearby island named Kili in the Marshall Islands chain in the 1940s due to atomic bomb tests.

The US conducted at least 23 nuclear tests, including the massive hydrogen bomb, Bravo, the largest weapon detonated at the time, . Bravo (yield 15 Mt), an experimental thermonuclear device surface event, was detonated on Bikini Atoll on March 1, 1954 as part of the Operation Castle.

In December 1945, President Harry S. Truman issued a directive to Army and Navy officials for joint testing of nuclear weapons “to determine the effect of atomic bombs on American warships.” Bikini was chosen for nuclear testing because of its location away from regular air and sea routes.

Their new home, however, is now threatened by the climate change dividends—rising sea levels, giant tides and ferocious storms.

Widespread flooding across the Marshall Islands last year caused extensive damage, leaving hundreds of residents homeless.

Bikini Atoll is one of the 29 atolls and five islands that comprise the Marshall Islands. The atolls are scattered over 925,000 square kilometers in the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator. The geographic area is referred to as Micronesia.
