Even as mainstream media screams about ‘global warming’ and ‘California’s deserts are DRY!’ we have studious silence about Fukushima. This Chicken Little approach to reality has a heavy price: the nuclear disaster that is still quite active and going strong, is definitely affecting the environment in deadly ways. And no one has the faintest idea how to stop this.
Pumps at Fukushima plant halted, toxic water leaking into ocean – TEPCO announced several hours ago. There are these giant holding tanks as well as mountains of toxic dry waste sitting at Fukushima. The plastic doesn’t stop the radiation. Like a cancer, this stuff is accumulating steadily.
In between this, the toxins are dumped directly into the ocean. Instead of protesting Fukushima, we have seen giant demonstrations demanding more nuclear power and a stop to warm weather. Even as this demand for a colder climate is being serviced by Mother Nature, they concentrate on the one warm spot on earth: California and the ‘warm spot’ in the Pacific Ocean and scream that we are roasting to death, even as the rest of the planet cools.
Snow in Erzurum, Turkey as April ends, New snowfall warning in Quebec where last weekend, liberal youngsters in college marched to demand more snow. Wow, it worked! South Africa endures snowy winter weekend – in the Autumn! New England’s historic winter pushes back growing season by one to two weeks and sheep herders in Scotland and northern England are being warned that these may be a blizzard this week and they must rescue the baby lambies who just came out of the womb this month.
Second robot captures glow inside stricken Fukushima plant: it is definitely broiling hot in the reactor’s vicinity there. Nuclear power will save the world, UN scientists claimed back in 2007. National Geographic which should change its name to Global Warming Hysterical Monthly Periodical, says nuclear power will save the earth, too.
The earth doesn’t give a hoot if it is hot or cold, nuclear poison or pre-Cambrian seas, it is utterly indifferent to the weather or life forms, these change and come and go while the planet mercilessly rotates in space while whirling around a rather agitated indistinguishable star, the Sun. Saving ourselves is something different and we are menaced by the possibility of nuclear war which would end up blowing up quite a few nuclear power plants as well as cities.
A noxious future indeed and I used to organize and participate in anti-nuclear war/anti-nuclear power demonstrations since 1966. It disgusts me to see the destruction of this movement and the twisting of it around so it does the exact opposite of what I worked so hard to do in the past.
The message has been destroyed. And I mourn the loss of sanity and focus on the real human dangers to us all: World War III which our rulers seem bent on creating.
