Since the toxic pollution is gonna reach the water tables, you might as well…

Chemical factories, paper mills…  in the city of Weifang,  Shandong Province [as well as tens of thousands of other factories across China,] reportedly discharge their toxic waste a thousand meters  deep into underground water table using high pressure techniques [what’s the use of science and technology, if you couldn’t pump your waste deep below!!]

Suspicions were raised when the authorities investigated more than 700 companies in the city, but found no traces of pollution, a technical impossibility, said Weifang Environmental Protection Bureau.

Australia: The Maralinga Mushroom Cloud Fairies

Some 320 Australian servicemen were exposed to deadly radioactive fallout after their government ordered them to take part in the UK atomic bomb testing  more than 50 years ago.

  • Most of the victims were ordered by the government to fly through the mushroom cloud after a nuclear test at Maralinga, in South Australia.
  • Throughout the 1950s and 60s, the UK government carried out more than   500 nuclear tests, including seven major detonations.
  • ”A stated aim of the British Nuclear Test Programme was to discover the detailed effects of various types of explosions on equipments, stores and men with and without various types of protection,” the veterans said.
  • ”The procedure was to turn their backs to the bomb 10 seconds before detonation, cover their eyes and then turn to observe the bomb when instructed about five seconds after detonation.”
  • Whereas the British scientists wore protective suits, the Australians—dressed in shirtsleeves and shorts—stood within 50 yards of the test site, said Mr Batchelor, one of the veterans.
  • “Britain’s Supreme Court last year  “blocked a bid by 1000 British Maralinga veterans to seek compensation over the tests. The decision quashed the hopes of 320 Australian servicemen, who had hoped to join the case. Almost 100 of those men have now died,” said a report.
  • “The hopes of Australians exposed to nuclear testing were dealt a blow by a UK court ruling against compensation in January. The people exposed to the testing at Maralinga and other sites have been denied adequate compensation on onerous and fastidious technical grounds. Justice has been delayed too long,” said Greens spokesperson for nuclear policy Senator Scott Ludlam, according to a report.

Wildfires force thousands from homes as Australian heatwave persists

Temperatures are forecast to exceed 45ºC in some areas of Australia, with hundreds of wildfires already burning in five of Australia’s six states.

  • As Australia braced for “catastrophic” wildfire day,  authorities warned a massive runaway bushfire near southwest Victorian settlement of Drik Drik had the potential to double in size to 8,000 hectares, a report said.
  • At least 100 fires are burning in New South Wales (NWS), Australia’s most populous state.
    • The heatwave will spread across much of NSW on Tuesday, with strong westerly winds creating “catastrophic” bushfire conditions, fire officials have warned.
    • NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner warned that fire danger ratings across “a significant part” of the state would be raised to either severe or extreme.
    • “It could be some of the worst fire weather conditions we’ve seen for years, both in terms of fire ratings and the geographic spread of the conditions,” he said.”Couple that with the fact the last two years have been dominated by rainfall and moisture, which means we’ve got fuel loads across NSW the likes of which we haven’t seen for 30 or 40 years.”
    • “Any fire that burns under the predicted conditions — 40 degree (Celsius) temperatures (104 Fahrenheit), below 10 percent humidity, winds gusting over 70 kilometers an hour (43mph) — those conditions are by any measure horrendous,” said NSW Rural Fire Service Deputy Commissioner.
