Advanced Biological Warfare (article by Lord Stirling) ~ link ~ I have a link to a free movie on Hulu, BLACK DAWN: THE NEXT PANDEMIC, that is most interesting.  The movie is about the spread of a naturally occurring mutation in the H5N1 virus; a rather nasty mutation that kills up to 10% of those it effects.  I strongly urge people to take the time to view this movie, as it shows the impact of what a single naturally occurring virus mutation can do.  In reality, a global strategic Advanced Biological-based war would be at least ten-fold as bad and more likely a hundred-fold in its impact as the viruses would be military designer-created (recombination DNA) diseases with a much stronger kill ratio (90% or higher fatality level from an infection) and there would likely be many dozens of viruses released at the same time, instead of only one disease.      

Before we allow hardliners in Israel take us into yet another war, we need to take a very hard and realistic look at just what a war involving MAD on all sides would mean to Israel, to Europe, to North America and the entire world.

Explosions at Fukushima 3 Nuclear Power Plant...Which Uses Plutonium - with video ~ link
AP/Huffington Post reports:
Japan's chief cabinet secretary says a hydrogen explosion has occurred at Unit 3 of Japan's stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The blast was similar to an earlier one at a different unit of the facility.
Yukio Edano says people within a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius were ordered inside following Monday's. AP journalists felt the explosion 30 miles (50 kilometers) away.
This looks worse than yesterday's explosion at the number 1 reactor.

BBC points out that a meltdown at number 3 could be more serious than number 1, because number 3 uses plutonium as well as uranium:
The plant’s operator says pressure is rising inside reactor No. 3 after it lost its emergency cooling system.
A similar problem led to a blast at the plant’s No. 1 reactor on Saturday. …
But the BBC’s Chris Hogg in Tokyo says the second reactor is a different type which uses MOX (plutonium plus uranium) fuel and the consequences of a problem there are potentially more severe.

Total Of SEVEN Japanese Reactors Now Face Coolant Problems - Core Damage Possible At TWO ~ link ~
 UPDATED 12:47 PM EST --The Kyodo News Agency is now reporting coolant issues at a third Japanese nuclear plant, bringing the total number of reactors with severe electrical or cooling problems following Friday's earthquake to seven.

The Kyodo bulletin reads:
"The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said a cooling system pump stopped operating at Tokai No. 2 Power Station, a nuclear power plant, in the village of Tokai, Ibaraki Prefecture."

Owned by the Japan Atomic Power Company, Tokai No. 2 is Japan's oldest commercial nuclear plant. It uses an 1,100 megawatt boiling water reactor placed into service in 1978. According to the Asian Nuclear Safety Network, the plant design features a General Electric BWR 5 reactor design with Mark II containment, which is somewhat newer and stronger than the Mark I containment at Fukushima Daiichi unit one.

Japan declares State of Emergency on Another Reactor as it props for Another Meltdown ~ link
This is out-of-hand and could result in large scale additional deaths and radiation over a large part of the globe!  Stirling    

The aftermath of the earthquake & tsunami has left Japan in a state of emergency as over 6 million households are now without power (over 10% of Japans population) as aftershocks tremble about every two hours.

There is talk that there might be a second massive quake and a possible tsunami as nothing from mother nature is guaranteed.

Over 20,000 people are reported stranded.

Long lines have been reported at stores and gas stations as all the shelves are clearing out rapidly.

The massive 9.1 earthquake shifted japans coastline 8 feet.
It has also been reported that the earth itself shifted on it’s axis from this major planetary disaster.

Japan has now declared a state of emergency at another nuclear power plant (a second power plant).

Nuclear Plant Designer Says Japanese Government Suppressing Scale Of Crisis - with video ~ link ~
A former nuclear power plant designer has said Japan is facing an extremely grave crisis and called on the government to release more information, which he said was being suppressed. Masashi Goto told a news conference in Tokyo that one of the reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant was “highly unstable”, and that if there was a meltdown the “consequences would be tremendous”. He said such an event might be very likely indeed. So far, the government has said a meltdown would not lead to a sizeable leak of radioactive materials.

Mr Goto said the reactors at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant were suffering pressure build-ups way beyond that for which they were designed. There was a severe risk of an explosion, with radioactive material being strewn over a very wide area – beyond the 20km evacuation zone set up by the authorities – he added. Mr Goto calculated that because Reactor No 3 at Fukushima-Daiichi – where pressure is rising and there is a risk of an explosion – used a type of fuel known as Mox, a mixture of p lutonium oxide and uranium oxide, the radioactive fallout from any meltdown might be twice as bad.

He described the worst-case scenario: “It is difficult to say, but that would be a core meltdown. If the rods fall and mix with water, the result would be an explosion of solid material like a volcano spreading radioactive material. Steam or a hydrogen explosion caused by the mix would spread radioactive waste more than 50km. Also, this would be multiplied. There are many reactors in the area so there would be many Chernobyls.”

He accused the government of deliberately withholding vital information that would allow outside experts help solve the problems. “For example, there has not been enough information about the hydrogen being vented. We don’t know how much was vented and how radioactive it was.” He also described the use of sea water to cool the cores of the reactors at Fukushima-Daiichi as highly unusual and dangerous.

10,000 Dead in Japan amid fears of nuclear meltdowns ~ link ~ As we get deeper into the End Times, we can expect more terrible things like this.  Keep in mind, while the worst is yet to come, after the worst comes a New Earth and the return of Christ, when everything will be made right.  Stirling 
The estimated death toll from Japan's disasters climbed past 10,000 Sunday as authorities raced to combat the threat of multiple nuclear reactor meltdowns and hundreds of thousands of people struggled to find food and water. The prime minister said it was the nation's worst crisis since World War II.

Nuclear plant operators worked frantically to try to keep temperatures down in several reactors crippled by the earthquake and tsunami, wrecking at least two by dumping sea water into them in last-ditch efforts to avoid meltdowns. Officials warned of a second explosion but said it would not pose a health threat.

Near-freezing temperatures compounded the misery of survivors along hundreds of miles (kilometers) of the northeastern coast battered by the tsunami that smashed inland with breathtaking fury. Rescuers pulled bodies from mud-covered jumbles of wrecked houses, shattered tree trunks, twisted cars and tangled power lines while survivors examined the ruined remains.
One rare bit of good news was the rescue of a 60-year-old man swept away by the tsunami who clung to the roof of his house for two days until a military vessel spotted him waving a red cloth about 10 miles (15 kilometers) offshore.

Japan crisis 'worst since WWII' ~ link ~ Prime Minister Naoto Kan has said Japan is experiencing its greatest hardships since World War II as it tackles the aftermath of an earthquake, tsunami and a growing nuclear crisis. He said the situation at the quake-hit Fukushima nuclear plant remained grave, a day after an explosion at a reactor.

Japanese broadcaster NHK says the total number of confirmed deaths caused by the disaster now stands at 1,596.
But police warn that the death toll in Miyagi region alone could top 10,000. Millions of survivors remain without electricity and authorities are stepping up relief efforts as the scale of the tragedy becomes clearer. About 310,000 people have been evacuated to emergency shelters, NHK says.

Expert: Japan's radiation could spread to US ~ link ~
As Japan races to avert multiple nuclear meltdowns, one expert warned Sunday that radiation could spread to the U.S.
Joe Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund, told Fox News' Chris Wallace Japan's nuclear crisis is unprecedented.

"One reactor has had half the core exposed already," he explained. "This is the one they're flooding with sea water in a desperate effort to prevent it from a complete meltdown. They lost control of a second reactor next to it, a partial meltdown, and there is actually a third reactor at a related site 20-kilometers away they have also lost control over. We have never had a situation like this before."

"The worst case scenario is that the fuel rods fuse together, the temperatures get so hot that they melt together in a radioactive molten mass that bursts through the containment mechmisms and is exposed to the outside. So they spew radioactivity in the ground, into the air, into the water. Some of the radioactivity could carry in the atmosphere to the West Coast of the United States."

Japanese Prime Minister: Fukushima nuclear plant alarming ~ link ~
A nuclear plant damaged in Friday's quake remains in an alarming state, Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan says.

The casing of a reactor at Fukushima 1 plant exploded on Saturday, and another faces meltdown, but officials said only minimal radiation had been released.

Reign-of-Terror Continues As Japanese Volcano Erupts - with video ~ link
A volcano in southern Japan was spewing fire and ash Sunday, the country’s weather agency said, two days after a massive earthquake that triggered a destructive tsunami.
The ash and rock eruptions from the Shimoedake volcano were sent 4 kilometres high.

Monster Aftershock could strike within days ~ link ~
NORTH-EASTERN Japan can expect another monster earthquake large enough to trigger a tsunami within days, the head of the Australian Seismological Centre says.
The director, Kevin McCue, said there had been more than 100 smaller quakes since Friday, but a larger aftershock was likely. ''Normally they happen within days,'' he said. ''The rule of thumb is that you would expect the main aftershock to be one magnitude smaller than the main shock, so you would be expecting a7.9.

The Japanese quake was the result of a process called thrust faulting. A piece of the Earth's crust broke away at the juncture of the Eurasian and Pacific plates and was thrust underneath the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido. The US Geological Survey estimated the quake moved the Japanese coast about 2.4 metres.

Japan quake: Survivor rescued from roof out at sea ~ link ~  
Hiromitsu Shinkawa waves to rescuers before being rescued to a Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyer on Sunday Hiromitsu Shinkawa says he had returned home to gather some possessions after the earthquake
A 60-year-old man has been rescued from the roof of his floating home far out at sea, two days after a tsunami devastated Japan's north-east coast. Hiromitsu Shinkawa was found by a defence ministry destroyer 15km (10 miles) from shore, officials said. Mr Shinkawa's house in Minami Soma city in Fukushima prefecture had been ripped from its foundations and swept away by the retreating tsunami.

He was spotted waving a piece of red cloth, while clinging to the wreckage. Mr Shinkawa told his rescuers that the tsunami had hit as he and his wife returned home to gather some possessions after the earthquake, and that his wife was swept away. She is still missing.

An 8.9 Quake In California Could Have Irradiated The Entire USA ~ link
Wikimedia Commons 
Had the massive 8.9 Richter-scale earthquake that has just savaged Japan hit off the California coast, it could have ripped apart at least four coastal reactors and sent a lethal cloud of radiation across the entire United States.

The two huge reactors each at San Onofre and Diablo Canyon are not designed to withstand such powerful shocks. All four are extremely close to major faults.

The most definitive recent study of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster puts the death toll at 985,000.  The accident irradiated a remote rural area. The nearest city, Kiev, is 80 kilometers away.

But San Luis Obispo is some ten miles directly downwind from Diablo Canyon. The region around San Onofre has become heavily suburbanized.

Heavy radioactive fallout spread from Chernobyl blanketed all of Europe within a matter of days. It covered an area far larger than the United States.

Fallout did hit the jet stream and then the coast of California, thousands of miles away, within ten days. It then carried all the way across the northern tier of the United States.

Thorium reactors will be cheap and safe ~ link ~  

Thorium reactors would be cheap. The primary cost in nuclear reactors traditionally is the huge safety requirements. Regarding meltdown in a thorium reactor, Rubbia writes, “Both the EA and MF can be effectively protected against military diversions and exhibit an extreme robustness against any conceivable accident, always with benign consequences. In particular the [beta]-decay heat is comparable in both cases and such that it can be passively dissipated in the environment, thus eliminating the risks of “melt-down”. Thorium reactors can breed uranium-233, which can theoretically be used for nuclear weapons. However, denaturing thorium with its isotope, ionium, eliminates the proliferation threat. 

Because thorium reactors will make nuclear reactors more decentralized. Because of no risk of proliferation or meltdown, thorium reactors can be made of almost any size. A 500 ton, 100MW SSTAR-sized thorium reactor could fit in a large industrial room, require little maintenance, and only cost $25 million. A hypothetical 5 ton, truck-sized 1 MW thorium reactor might run for only $250,000 but would generate enough electricity for 1,000 people for the duration of its operating lifetime, using only 20 kg of thorium fuel per year, running almost automatically, and requiring safety checks as infrequently as once a year. That would be as little as $200/year after capital costs are paid off, for a thousand-persons worth of electricity! An annual visit by a safety inspector might add another $200 to the bill. A town of 1,000 could pool $250K for the reactor at the cost of $250 each, then pay $400/year collectively, or $0.40/year each for fuel and maintenance. These reactors could be built by the thousands, further driving down manufacturing costs.

Smaller reactors make power generation convenient in two ways: decreasing staffing costs by dropping them close to zero, and eliminating the bulky infrastructure required for larger plants. For this reason, it may be more likely that we see the construction of a million $40,000, 100 kW plants than 400 $300 million, 1GW plants. 100 kW plants would require minimal shielding and could be installed in private homes without fear of radiation poisoning. These small plants could be shielded so well that the level of radiation outside the shield is barely greater than the ambient level of radiation from traces of uranium in the environment. The only operating costs would be periodic safety checks, flouride salts, and thorium fuel. For a $40,000 reactor, and $1,000/year in operating costs, you get enough electricity for 100 people, which is enough to accomplish all sorts of antics, like running thousands of desktop nanofactories non-stop.

Even smaller reactors might be built. The molten salt may have a temperature of around 1,400°F, but as long as it can be contained by the best alloys, it is not really a threat. The small gasoline explosions in your automobile today are of a similar temperature. In the future, personal vehicles may be powered by the slow burning of thorium, or at least, hydrogen produced by a thorium reactor. Project Pluto, a nuclear-powered ramjet missile, produced 513 megawatts of power for only $50 million. At that price ratio, a 10 kW reactor might cost $1,000 and provide enough electricity for 10 persons/year while consuming only 1 kg of thorium every 5 years, itself only weighing 1000kg - similar to the weight of a refrigerator. I’m not sure if miniaturization to that degree is possible, or if the scaling laws really hold. But it seems consistent with what I’ve heard about nuclear power in the past.

Bahrain unrest: Manama erupts in violence ~ link ~
Bahraini police and protesters have clashed in several areas of the capital, Manama, in some of the worst unrest for weeks. Security forces used tear gas and rubber bullets to battle protesters who had managed to blockade main roads into the financial district. Clashes were also reported in the city's main square and university.

The UK government, which is warning its citizens to stay away from Bahrain, said there were fresh reports that Saudi soldiers were about to enter the country.

Hospital sources said around 200 people were hurt in the violence, mainly from inhaling tear gas. Three of those being treated were in critical condition, including one with severe head injuries. The interior ministry said 14 policemen were injured.

Crown Prince Salman, meanwhile, reiterated the government's offer of a national dialogue on deep-rooted reforms but not at the expense of Bahrain's security and stability, state news agency BNA reported. Prince Salman said he supports the creation of a parliament with full powers, and he also pledged to tackle naturalisation, administrative and financial corruption, and sectarian tensions.

Libya can still count on a few allies ~ link ~There is also a second group of nations -- including China, Russia and Turkey -- which while unlikely to openly back Gadhafi, would not support an invasion and they would also be against a no-fly zone, said Seener.

"It is not simply a case of being anti-Western. Turkey for example is increasing diplomatic and economic links with Iran and as it does so it is entering the Iranian sphere of influence. They will not condemn what Gadhafi is doing in Libya," says Seener.

Groundbreaking new UN Report on How to Feed the World's Hungry: Ditch Corporate-Controlled Agriculture ~ link ~ 
There are a billion hungry people in the world and that number could rise as food insecurity increases along with population growth, economic fallout and environmental crises. But a roadmap to defeating hunger exists, if we can follow the course -- and that course involves ditching corporate-controlled, chemical-intensive farming.

"To feed 9 billion people in 2050, we urgently need to adopt the most efficient farming techniques available. And today's scientific evidence demonstrates that agroecological methods outperform the use of chemical fertilizers in boosting food production in regions where the hungry live," says Olivier de Schutter, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. Agroecology is more or less what many Americans would simply call "organic agriculture," although important nuances separate the two terms.

Used successfully by peasant farmers worldwide, agroecology applies ecology to agriculture in order to optimize long-term food production, requiring few purchased inputs and increasing soil quality, carbon sequestration and biodiversity over time. Agroecology also values traditional and indigenous farming methods, studying the scientific principals underpinning them instead of merely seeking to replace them with new technologies. As such, agroecology is grounded in local (material, cultural and intellectual) resources.

this is not for publishing as a comment, so much as to alert Stirling to something...the Fukushima 1 & 3 reactors use a nuclear fuel made of a mix of Plutonium and Uranium. This is called 'Mox' fuel. Plutonium is 2,000,000 times more deadly than uranium. If this melts down and gets into the atmosphere it would be, at a minimum, hundreds or thousands of times worse than Chernobyl to the US West Coast. I am only finding information about this on the godlike productions site. This link shows a search for "Mox".

As to the astounding UN announcement about going back to small 'organic' farms.......... THIS IS NOTHING NEW. The death of the family farm over the last 50 years due to the proliferation of huge commercial farms and intensive livestock operations has caused far more damage than just the loss of people on the land.

Chemicals have been used to replace the natural organics and have polluted far and wide. Small communities and towns have died by the thousands as the population base in rural areas plummeted. Livestock and crop diseases, viruses and funguses have spread like wildfire and new ones have been created and spread because of these practices.

Shit it is annoying to read this announcement as if some egg head in the UN has come up with something startling when hundreds of thousands of farmers have been trying to get this message across for decades. There is NOTHING new about this and it should fall into the common sense category, you know 'common sense' something that has been lost to the majority of humanity.

Big business/banks/government have pushed industrial agricutlure from the beginning. There has been no concern for the damage to the environment, the impact on rural people and economies or the inhumane treatment of hundreds of millions of animals. That's right, inhumane treatment of animals! Nothing deserves to be raised in the 'intensive livestock' environment.

I have seen entire watersheds where chemical runoff from fields have killed every tree in the drainage. It is killing our lakes. Hog manure flowing off of fields during a rainstorm and rushing down ditches into the local creeks and rivers because it was applied three times heavier than was allowed. Manure from storage lagoons at hog barns and dairy barns leaking out or leaching down and contaminating aquifers.

The general population has been so urbanized and dumbed down that they have not a bloody clue as to what is going on out there and they swallow all of the BS propaganda that is spoon fed to them through the corporate controlled media.

I guess in the end we deserve what we get as a species.
