Short Overview

There are three major problems at Fukushima: (1) Three reactor cores are missing; (2) Radiated water has been leaking from the plant in mass quantities for 2.5 years; and (3) Eleven thousand spent nuclear fuel rods, perhaps the most dangerous things ever created by humans, are stored at the plant and need to be removed, 1,533 of those are in a very precarious and dangerous position.

Commentary: REDESIGNING LIFESTYLES

PART 1.

by Bill Olkowski

The fact that ghee is better than butter, and butter better than margarine is probably well known already but I feel it’s part of redesigning the US and a major contribution to design of one’s lifestyle.  If you do not want to pay extra for ghee, you can make it yourself from no salt organic butter.
