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

How to Tear through the Fabric of Life and Everything

“How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” – US detonated more than 210 nuclear bombs in 17 years

Between 1945 and 1962, the United States detonated more than 210 atomic bombs, releasing massive amounts of radioactive particles into the atmosphere.

A team from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has declassified and preserved several hundred samples from an estimated 10,000 films showing the atmospheric nuclear detonation testing in the Pacific during the so-called Cold War.

Some of the declassified films are posted on the LLNL’s YouTube playlist.

Operation Teapot – Tesla 28616

Fukushima Potentially More Disastrous Than Hiroshima

Radioactivity spikes 6,500 times at Fukushima: TEPCO

The crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant’s operator, TEPCO, says it detected a sharp rise in radioactivity in a well near a storage tank on Thursday, NHK reported.

On Thursday, workers detected 400,000 becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances, including strontium, at a well  near the tank that  leaked more than 300 tons of contaminated water in August, TEPCO said.

The radioactivity level was 6,500 times higher than the readings taken the previous day.

“The well was dug to monitor the impact of the leakage and is located at about 10 meters from the tank,” the report said.

TEPCO believes the latest findings are indicative of ground water contamination, because radioactive substances like as strontium are transferred relatively slowly.

Given the extent of Fukushima catastrophe, the operator’s inability to deal with the ever-worsening disasters at the site and Japanese government’s “wait-and-see” attitude, to put it mildly, the blog Moderators believe the situation at the disaster-stricken plant could potentially become as bad, if not worse than the aftermath of Hiroshima atom bomb.
