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!

Death Toll Update

About 8,200 have perished, with another 12,300 people missing. Japanese police say as many as 15.000 people may have been killed in Miyagi prefecture alone.

Radiation Update

Taiwanese officials have found contamination in a batch of fava beans exported from Japan, although the amount, they said, was too small to be pose any threat to human health.

Tsunami impact on Sendai, Japan


Flooded fields on the tsunami-hit Sendai coast. Some of the fields are still waterlogged a week after the deadly tsunami spawned by the 9.0Mw Tohoku Megaquake caused much destruction along Japan’s eastern coast of Honshu.

Death Toll

Death toll in Japan’s twin disasters has reached about 7,400 with up to 11,000 others still missing.

Less Love for the Japanese Victims?

US charitable organizations have raised $64 million for Japan since the Tohoku Megaquake struck last Friday, a report said.

Six days after the Haiti earthquake struck, however, the same charities had raised $210 million. And in a similar period after Hurricane Katrina hit the US Gulf Coast they had raised $457 million.

Canadians also donated far less money to Japan than they did Haiti, a report said.

In the week following Haiti’s devastating quake last year, the Humanitarian Coalition (CARE Canada, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam-Québec and Save the Children Canada) raised $3.5 million. In the last 7 days, however, they have only raised $450,000 for Japan.

One reason might be that donors no longer trust charity organizations. They are wising up to the money black hole created by the international charity mafia. The sad fact is a great number of charities eat up as much as 95% of the contribution dollars. [See also comments about Haiti donations posted on this blog.]
