“Doomsday Seed Vault” in the Arctic –

 

Bill Gates, Rockefeller and the GMO giants know something we don’t

Lots of new and great information about the concentration of seeds and who funds the storage.  No surprises here but worth thinking about.

KEY SELECTION

 

Despite decreases in acute viral hepatitis, chronic hepatitis infection continues to affect millions of Americans. In the United States, an estimated 700,000–1.4 million persons are living with chronic hepatitis B infection (2, 3), and an estimated 2.7–3.9 million persons are chronically infected with hepatitis C (4). 
In 2011, almost 40,000 reports of chronic hepatitis B and nearly 186,000 reports of chronic hepatitis C were submitted to CDC through NNDSS. Of these, 11,781 reports of chronic hepatitis B infection and 58,286 reports of chronic hepatitis C infections were available for descriptive analyses.
Mortality data from 2006-2010, the latest year for which these data were available, reveal the serious health consequences associated with viral hepatitis: chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis, was the 12th leading cause of death in the United States in 2010 (5). Viral-hepatitis-associated death rates in 2010 were highest among persons infected with HCV (4.65 deaths per 100,000 population), followed by HBV (0.52 deaths per 100,000 population), and HAV (0.03 deaths per 100,000 population).

Abe’s Nuclear Energy Policy and Japan’s Future

Jeff Kingston

“The utility’s glaring ineptitude with crisis ­management was noted right from the start of the Fukushima disaster. How and why could TEPCO have kept repeating the same blunders over and over?” (Asahi 7/31/2013)

On August 7, 2013 PM Abe Shinzo finally announced that the government had lost faith in Tepco’s ability to manage the ongoing crisis at Fukushima following months of media reports documenting dangerous radioactive water leaks. NHK News (8/6/13) commented, “Once again Tepco is one step behind.” And the following night it described Tepco’s efforts as “groping in the dark”. This explains why 94% of Japanese believe that the Fukushima accident has not been brought under control and why 31% want to abandon nuclear energy as soon as possible with an additional 54% supporting a gradual phase out. (Asahi 7/18/2013)

Abe was belatedly forced to state, “Rather than relying on Tokyo Electric, the government will take measures.” Two and a half years after the three meltdowns at Fukushima, Tepco has not come to grips with the problem of how to manage accumulations of contaminated water being used to cool the crippled reactors and the spread of that contamination to groundwater that flows through the plant site to the sea. It also seems to have made little progress in decommissioning the plant, a process that will take an estimated forty years and cost $11 billion, although the final price tag is expected to balloon. The ongoing leaks of massive amounts of radioactive water into the ocean demonstrate that the Fukushima crisis is far from over and that entrusting the clean-up to the plant operator was a colossal mistake because it left critical decisions up to the industry insiders who compromised nuclear safety before 3.11and subsequently mismanaged the crisis. Why, despite a cascade of media exposés about the water problem, did the government wait so long to intervene? And, why did intervention suddenly become so urgent?

And I remember one of the first things Reagan did when elected governor  of CA was to start the University of California on the road to ruin by vastly increasing the cost of attending.  And then the first thing he did as President was to remove the solar panels from the white house.  Carter walked the inauguration parade, Reagan hired a vast array of limousines.
