2016: Nuclear Waste Leak Continues at ‘America’s Fukushima’; 33 Left Ill by Radioactive Fumes

Weather.com A nuclear waste leak at the Hanford Site in Washington state that rapidly intensified last month has left 33 workers ill from possible exposure to chemical vapors, while others scramble to pump the remaining waste out of the storage facility. Back in 2011, a leak was found on the inner hull of one of the site’s 28 double-wall storage tanks. The previous leak posed an insignificant threat, but workers came across an even larger leak in recent weeks while attempting to clear the inner hull of its remaining waste. The number of those who have been reported ill as a result of the leak climbed into the 30s after six workers sought medical evaluation Monday, suspecting exposure to radioactive fumes left them unwell, according to the Tri-City Herald. A majority of the affected have been cleared to return to work, but voice fear of suffering from long-term or […] Read More

2015: West Coast orcas experiencing 100% infant mortality rate as radiation from Fukushima drifts across ocean

(NaturalNews) Marine biologists and other researchers are voicing serious concerns regarding the high mortality rate among orcas (killer whales) observed over the past couple of years. No one has yet proven that there is a direct link between the 100 percent mortality rate seen among orca infants and the effects of the radiation contamination of the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima reactor leak in Japan, but it certainly can’t be ruled out as a possibility. It is rather interesting that the incidence of orca deaths — not just of infants, but full-grown specimens as well — has risen sharply since the accident occurred in 2011 and as the radiation has made its way across the Pacific Ocean to the West Coast of North America. Scientists have also noticed odd behavior among orcas recently. Dr. Lance Barrett-Lennard, senior marine mammal scientist at the Vancouver Aquarium, has been “sounding the alarm” […] Read More

2014: New Harvard Study Proves Why The Bees Are All Disappearing

The human race is really starting to feel the consequences of their actions. One area we are waking up to is the massive amount of pesticides we spray (especially in North America) on our food that has not only been linked to human disease but a massive die-off in the global bee population within the past few years. A new study out of Harvard University, published in the June edition of the Bulletin of Insectology puts the nail in the coffin, neonicotinoids are killing bees at an exponential rate, they are the direct cause of the phenomenon labeled as colony collapse disorder (CCD). Neonicotinoids are the world’s most widely used insecticides. (1) “The results from this study not only replicate findings from the previous study but also reinforce the conclusion that the sublethal exposure to neonicotinoids is likely the main culprit for the occurrence of CCD.” (1) For this […] Read More

2014: The Bees Are Back…As Robots? Harvard Project Funds The Engineering Of Robotic Bees Soon To Be In Flight

With the alarming decline in the honey bee population sweeping our globe, fear of the multi-billion dollar crop industry collapsing has been on many people’s minds. To tackle this issue, Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has been working with staff from the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Northeastern University’s Department of Biology to develop robot bees. Yes that’s right, Robobees. And according to a new video just released, these insectoid automatons have already taken flight. According to the creators of Robobee: The demonstration of the first controlled flight of an insect-sized robot is the culmination of more than a decade’s work . . . Half the size of a paperclip, weighing less than a tenth of a gram, the robot was inspired by the biology of a fly, with submillimeter-scale anatomy and two wafer-thin wings that flap almost invisibly, 120 times per second. Environmental organization […] Read More

2014: Ban: Hawaii First State To Ban Plastic Shopping Bags

By Christina Sarich Natural Society Even with reusable shopping bags, most individuals inevitably end up with some of the annoying thin plastic ones around, perhaps shoved under the kitchen sink. Well in Hawaii, people will be dealing with a lot fewer of these plastic sacks as that state recently became the first to ban the bag at checkout and restaurants. Honolulu County became the last of the state’s counties to ban the bags, completing the state’s ban as a whole, according to NBC News. Retailers have three years to get rid of their supply and come up with alternatives.  “Passing the bans did take an effort – change always does—but people seemed to understand the need for such an effort,” said director of the Hawaii chapter of the Sierra Club environmental group Robert Harris. The success of the bans is attributed to citizen action and conscientious Hawaiians. After all, it didn’t […] Read More

2013: Something Is Killing Life All Over The Pacific Ocean – Could It Be Fukushima?

By Michael Snyder The Truth Wins Why is there so much death and disease among sea life living near the west coast of North America right now? Could the hundreds of tons of highly radioactive water that are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day have anything to do with it? When I wrote my last article about Fukushima, I got a lot of heat for being “alarmist” and for supposedly “scaring” people unnecessarily.  I didn’t think that an article about Fukushima would touch such a nerve, but apparently there are some people out there that really do not want anyone writing about this stuff.  Right now, massive numbers of fish and sea creatures are dying in the Pacific Ocean. In addition, independent tests have shown that significant levels of cesium-137 are in a very high percentage of the fish that are being caught in the Pacific and […] Read More

2013: Colony Collapse Disorder & Nanobees

You’re traveling through this dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of heavy greed. A journey into a flipped-out land whose boundaries are that of the darkest imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Real World! After reading and viewing the following information, I can’t even think of a good explicit remark. Why isn’t this being investigated no hold barred, something is wrong in Disneyland, Lucy? I remember growing up and bees were everywhere, and stepping on a bee was a common fun summertime activity.  The future now holds, you might step on a Robobee, and they probably bite. WTF!   Well, let us start this ride and see where we end up. Fasten your seatbelts and  we will start with the Basic’s from Wikipedia, for better understanding Colony collapse disorder http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colony collapse disorder Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a beehive or European honey bee colony abruptly […] Read More
