NUCLEAR :close call

Image
OOPS
Workers at Diablo Canyon Nuclear plant recently discovered two long-misaligned switches that could have created problems in an emergency.

http://www.newtimesslo.com/news/3503/diablo-canyon-had-an-undetected-problem-for-19-months-/

AN UNDETECTED PROBLEM (FOR 19 MONTHS)AT A NUCLEAR REACTOR POWER PLANT IN CALIFORNIA THAT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN A MELTDOWN HAPPENED RECENTLY AT A PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC FACILITY IN CALIFORNIA...YET ANOTHER REASON NOT TO BUILD MORE NUCLEAR REACTORS..CO2 POLLUTION, LEAKING TRITIUM LACED WATER RADIOACTIVE WASTE STORAGE AND SKY ROCKETING COSTS ARE JUST SOME OF THE MANY PROBLEMS WITH NUCLEAR POWER.

CLIMATE CHANGE=FLU ?

I HAVE OBSERVED OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS THE ERRATIC TEMPERATURE VARIATIONS ON THE SAME DAY AND OFTEN WITHIN HOURS...EXAMPLE: ONE MORNING TOOK A WALK TO GROCERY STORE WEATHER WAS SPRINGLIKE ..COMFORTABLE WEARING T-SHIRT ..FAST FORWARD SAME AFTERNOON...HAD 3 OR 4 LAYERS OF COATS AND SWEATERS AND WAS STILL COLD THROUGHOUT.THE EXTREME SEE SAW HOT/COLD TRIGGERS FLU SYMPTONS..IN MY OPINION...WELCOME TO CLIMATE CHANGE...A..WAKE UP CALL...IF U WANT TO SAVE THE PLANET DON'T BUY A CAR....BECOME A VEGETARIAN . . .REDUCE ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION...AND ONLY BUY NECESSATIES...TONITE IS MONTHLY EARTH HOUR.

DINOSAURS LIVE

Image
DINOSAURS HAVE BEEN EXTINCT 4 MILLLIONS OF YEARS BUT THANKS TO THE DINOSAURS THAT INHABIT THE U.S.GOVT.AND THE STATE OF DELAWARE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TAXPAYERS MONEY IS GOING TO BE "INVESTED" IN THE SUNSET AUTO INDUSTRY IN THE STATE OF DELAWARE.AN OLD G.M. FACTORY IS TO BE CONVERTED TO PRODUCE ELECTRIC CARS..ELSEWHERE ON THIS BLOG ARE ARCHIVES OF POSTS THAT DESCRIBE IN DETAIL THE COLLATERAL DAMAGE DONE TO THIS PLANET BY MOTOR VEHICLES.ROADS,CO2(YES ELECTRIC CARS NEED POWER FROM NUCLEAR OR COAL WHICH PRODUCE CO2)...VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN WILL MAKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW.

CO2 SYMBOL

Image
. . . . .I WILL TRY IN AN UNSCIENTIFIC WAY TO EXPLAIN THE CARBON DIOXIDE SYMBOL PICTURED HERE . . .AND ITS RELATION TO THE 350 CAMPAIGN. . . . .IN THE ATMOSPHERE SURROUNDING PLANET EARTH THERE ARE MILLIONS OF GAS MOLECULES (OR PARTS AS IN PARTS PER MILLION P.P.M.)...BY RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENT SCIENTISTS HAVE DETERMINED THAT TO MAINTAIN A STABLE CLIMATE ON EARTH 350 MOLECULES(PARTS) IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF A MOLECULE THAT CONTAINS 2 OXYGEN ATOMS (WEIGHT=16 EACH) AND ONE CARBON ATOM (WEIGHT=12) . . .IN THE ATMOSPHERE. . . .PRESENTLY THE EARTH HAS CLOSE TO 390 PPM OF CO2.AND THE 350 CAMPAIGN IS TRYING TO MAKE EVERY HUMAN ON THIS PLANET AWARE THAT THIS PLANET IS IN DANGER OF DESTRUCTION. . . .THERFORE IN ORDER TO SAVE THE PLANET WE NEED TO STOP BUYING/DRIVING CARS,REDUCE CONSUMPTION OF MEATS,ALSO REDUCE ELECTRICITY USE.THESE ARE PRIORITY ITEMS.OTHER THINGS MUST ALSO BE CURTAILED LIKE GENERAL CONSUMPTION OF CUNSUMER GOODS.

350 BRIDGE RALLY

Image
http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/10/24/bc-cambie-bridge-climate-rally.html ....TRAFFIC WAS STOPPED AS THOUSANDS HELD A CLIMATE ACTION RALLY ON A VANCOUVER AREA BRIDGE SATURDAY,OCT 24 AS PART OF WORLD CLIMATE DAY (350 P.P.M.)(350 REFERS TO THE SAFE AMOUNT OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN THE ATMOSPHERE) . . .FULL DETAILS ON CBC.CA OR CTV NEWS....ONLINE . . . . . . .PRESENTLY A READING OF NEAR 390 PPM HAS BEEN RECORDED FOR PLANET EARTH WHICH IS OVER THE STABLE THRESHHOLD...THE PURPOSE OF THE 350 RALLYS IS TO MAKE EVERYONE ON THE PLANET AWARE OF THE PRECARIOUS PROBLEM FACING EARTH IF WE DO NOT REDUCE PRODUCTION OF CO2 GASES...THE MAIN CULPRITS IN CLIMATE CHANGE.

ADDIS ABABA = OK

20,000 PEOPLE IN ADDIS ABABA,ETHIOPIA WITH MANY YOUNG STUDENTS STROLL THROUGH DOWNTOWN WITH 350PPM SIGNS ACCOMPANIED BY BACKGROUND RHYTHMIC MUSIC IN A PARADE,SHOW THE WORLD ONE WAY TO OBSERVE INTERNATIONAL CLIMATE ACTION DAY...OCTOBER 24-2009.

NUCLEAR RABBITS

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/15/science/earth/15rabbit.html?_r=2........ . .IN A NEWS ARTICLE IN NEW YORK TIMES OCT 14-09,DESCRIBES THE RADIATION SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE LAND NEAR THE HANFORD NUCLEAR REACTOR IN WASHINGTON STATE . . . .BY OF ALL THINGS . . "RABBITS" . . . .READ ALL ABOUT IT ....AND . . . .SAY NO TO NUCLEAR . . .REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE INDUSTRY SPIN DOCTORS SAY. . . ..I WONDER IF THERE ARE ANY RABBITS IN THAT GLOW IN THE DARK NEAR PICKERING NUCLEAR POWER STATION,TORONTO,CANADA ?...JUST ASKING....PLEASE DON'T EAT THE RABBITS NEAR NUCLEAR STATIONS...YOU MIGHT GET CANCER.

THE BIG 350

THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER EVER IF U CARE ABOUT THE FATE OF PLANET EARTH .. . . 350 PARTICLES OF CARBON DIOXIDE OUT OF EVERY MILLION PARTICLES(MOLECULES) IS THE AMOUNT OF CO2 THAT WILL ALLOW A STABLE CLIMATE ON PLANET EARTH . . . .WE ARE ALREADY OVER 350 PPM AND CLOSER TO 390.....THE WHOLE PLANET MUST DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF CO2 BACK DOWN TO 350 OTHERWISE CLIMATE CHAOS WILL OCCUR AND THIS PLANET WILL BE UNINHABITABAL.

CARS=CLIMATE CHAOS

Image
ROUGHLY 1 BILLION CARS ARE ON PLANET EARTH TODAY....EACH CAR NEEDS APPROX. 20 GALLONS OF GAS PER WEEK..52 WEEKS OF THE YEAR.....20 BILLION GALLONS OF GAS MULTIPLY BY 52(WEEKS)= 1,040 BILLION GALLONS PER YEAR. . . . . . .EACH CAR NEEDS A PLACE TO PARK @ HOME AND @ STORE AND NEEDS A ROADWAY TO DRIVE ON . . . .MADE OUT OF CARBON INTENSIVE BLACKTOP OR CONCRETE . . .AND THE ROAD WILL GO THROUGH FERTILE FARMLAND OR GREEN VIRGIN FOREST ....NO MATTER...LAND WILL BE BULLDOZED INTO THE GROUND (MORE GAS USED) AND MUCH CO2 EMISSIONS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE....(TO BE CONTINUED) . . . . . .note picture is from recent flood in the philipines. . . . . .(part of the climate chaos)

BEEF BANNED

Image
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ap-japan-suspends-shipments-from-us-meat-plant-2009-10-10 . .. . . .. . . . . . JAPAN HAS BANNED SHIPMENTS OF BEEF FROM THE USA DUE TO A HEALTH ADVISERY FROM THE JAPANESE AGRICULTURE DEPT......MAYBE ITS A GOOD TIME TO SWITCH TO A VEGETARIAN LIFESTYLE OR BETTER STLL A VEEGAN LIFESTYLE....FOR THE GOOD OF THE PLANET AND FOR HEALTH REASONS....FACTORY FARMING OF BEEF AND DAIRY CATTLE DESTROY WATER SUPPLY AND LARGE FORESTS IN SOUTH AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICA,NOT TO MENTION GREENHOUSE GAS EMMISIONS AND EXCESSIVE ENERGY,TRANSPORTATION USE. . . .SO PLEASE PEOPLE . . . .REDUCE YOUR CONSUMPTION OF MEAT.note:the above photo is from a public demonstration last year (2008) in seoul south korea against beef imports.

IRAN ISOTOPES ?

Image
. . . . .YET ANOTHER REASON HAS BEEN FLOATED TO PROMOTE THE USE OF NUCLEAR REACTORS ALLEGEDLY TO PRODUCE ISOTOPES,THIS TIME BY IRAN....CANADA HAD ITS TURN TO PRODUCE THE MEDICAL ISOTOPES AND AFTER SPENDING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF TAXPAYERS DOLLARS AND STILL NOT ABLE TO FIX LEAKING REACTORS.THE GOVERNMENT WISELY DECIDED TO CLOSE THE CLALK RIVER NUCLEAR FACILITY....BUT IRAN IS ABOUT TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES ALL OVER AGAIN....ALTERNATE NON NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY FOR THE SAFE MANUFACTURE OF MEDICAL ISOTOPES ARE AVAILABLE AT SEVERAL UNIVERSITIES AT A FRACTION OF THE COST AND WITHOUT THE TOXIC FALLOUT FROM NUCLEAR....HOPE IRAN RECONSIDERS THIS DANGEROUS PATH BEFORE IT BECOMES A BIGGER PROBLEM.

ACT OF GOD OR MAN

Image
MANY DISASTERS LIKE EARTHQUAKES,FLOODS,TORNADOS,HURRICANES HAVE BEEN AUTOMATICALLY LABELLED AS ACT OF GOD....AS IF SOME SUPER NATURAL FORCE WAS RESPONSIBLE.ON THE CONTRARY I BELIEVE THAT HUMAN ACTIVITY IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE.ITS A WELL KNOWN FACT THAT TORNADOS OCCUR NEAR OIL/GAS INSTALLATIONS IN THE SOUTHERN USA NOTABLY TEXAS BUT ALSO IN NEAR BY STATES....THERE IS HUGE THERMAL POLLUTION GOING ON 24/7 NEAR A OIL REFINERY AND RELATED INDUSTRIES.COINCIDENCE ???? I THINK NOT...IN THE INDIAN OCEAN THERE IS UNDERWATER MINING OF OIL/GAS AND OTHER INDUSTRIES GOING ON ALL THE TIME TAKING OUT 1,000'S OF TONNES OF MINERALS INCLUDING OIL/GAS LEAVING UNSTABLE UNDERGROUND SPACES.COINCIDENTALLY EARTHQUQKES HAPPEN NEARBY.RECENT FLOODS IN INDIA LEFT 2,000,000 PEOPLE FORCED TO EVACUATE ....AND A TYPHOON IN JAPAN KNOCKED OUT BRIDGES,TRAINS AND ROADWAYS...AND A TORNADO IN TORONTO,CANADA(FIRST TIME EVER)....MY POINT AND OPINION IS : HUMAN ACTIVITY IS RESPONSIBLE.

THE AGE OF STUPID

Image
FROM AROUND 1900 A.D. TO THE PRESENT TIME . . . . .HUMAN CIVILIZATION EMBARKED ON A NEW AGE : THE AGE OF AUTOMOBILES . . . . .THE AGE OF FLIGHT . . . . . THE NUCLEAR AGE . . . .AND NOW WE FIND OUT FROM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE . . .THE POTENTIAL DESTRUCTION OF THE PLANET EARTH. . . . ..WELCOME TO THE AGE OF STUPID.... . . .WHERE THE HUMAN SPECIES IS ON A TRAJECTORY OF SELF DESTRUCTION. . . . .IF . . .U . . .WANT TO SAVE THIS PLANET . . .DON'T BUY A CAR . . .NO MATTER IF ITS HYBRID,ELECTRIC OR WHATEVER. . . . .DON'T EAT MEAT....BECOME A VEGETARIAN . . . .OR BETTER STILL A VEGAN . . . .REUSE,REPAIR AND/ OR RECYCLE WHENEVER POSSIBLE . . . .BUY ONLY WHAT U NEED ...ONLY AS A LAST RESORT...PREFERABLE DON'T BUY . . .PERIOD...WE CANNOT GROW FOREVER DUE TO LIMITED RESOURCES . .AND FINALLY IF U WISH TO DESTROY THIS PLANET . . .KEEP ON DRIVING . . . .AND I'LL SEE U IN HELL.

TIPS 2 SAVE PLANET

Image
. . . . . DON'T BUY A CAR . . . WHETHER ITS HYBRID OR ELECTRIC...THE COLLATERAL DAMAGE DONE BY THESE MOTOR VEHICLES REMAINS THE SAME.......HYBRIDS STILL NEED PAVED/CONCRETE ROADS (HEAVY CO2 POLLUTION) AND BRIDGES. . . .(INCREASED TAXES FOR ALL EVEN IF WE DON'T HAVE CARS).....NEW ROADS OR EXPANSION WILL DESTROY TREES AND FERTILE FARNLAND........ALSO ANOTHER TIP....2...SAVE THE PLANET . . . . .DON'T EAT MEAT.....BEEF AND DAIRY CATTLE NEED EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF WATER,PASTURE, GRAIN FEED,TRANSPORTATION AND REFRIGERATION . . . .BECOME A VEGETARIAN OR BETTER STILL A VEEGAN . . . .ITS GOOD FOR THE PLANET AND ALSO FOR YOUR HEALTH. . ..note:above photo is of a community garden in toronto,canada....grow your own vegatables ..another tip on saving the planet.
