To Speak of Class

April 4, 2014

To Speak of Class

 

To speak of class is to amplify and encourage the reality that we have all accepted  different “levels” of equality, and that market forces and income determine one’s level of “human equality”.  Class also allows for general acceptance of the notion that equality is inextricably and essentially tied to money and wealth.

 

 Some camps of thought claim that they would actually let capitalistic and self-serving economics make this idea of equality equals income be the only measure of ones “worth”, while others would let nature take its course (as they see it) and only the strongest (wealthiest) individuals would be truly free to do as they like.

 

 Today most assume a “fair” economic playing field, while in truth this game of economics is a chaotic clash of wildly differing cultural and nationalistic standards of equality and individual wealth income, a fundamentally unfair economic competition using differing and ever-changing rules.  This allows for organizations and wealthy individuals to exert their will and force in the form of money to influence and cement in place forever their own personal security, safety, and wealth.  Ever-increasing wealth and narrowing numbers of individual human beings controlling this wealth concentrate this vast pool of money into actions and uses for the sole purpose of security, luxury, influence, and ultimately control.

 

  Control of what?

 

 Control of that which generates the money– human’s state and national economies, consumptions, views, ways of life, national systems, and natural resources.  The largely  passive acceptance by the “under-informed populace”  helps to constitute the creation and acceptance by this carefully controlled and manipulated mass of humanity the embodiment of what could only be called “anti-equality”.  The simple phrase “money is the root of all evil” seems to fit here.

 

There has never been a natural need for a means of exchange that is artificial in nature, does not exist physically, and yet is clung to irrationally for the purpose of defining  “worth”.  The “worth” of  produced objects, food, water, machinery, heating, cooling, transportation, fuel, and energy, now more than ever in history, is defined by “mentally constructed ideas of supply and demand, artificially constructed “perceived need”, and artificially enhanced commercially driven human desires   Natural resources we commonly use to produce energy for combustion (burned) mechanical energy for transportation and heat energy (burning) of carbon exhaust-producing solid, liquid, gas, and radioactive substances proven deadly to humanity have distorted our collective intelligence about these proven dangers and fooled us into believing and basing our lives and pursuits on earning money to live at a “class level” that we believe we are deserving of.  The “Highest Class Level” is said to be available to anyone in the U.S. and is held up to the world as a good thing, and claims that only under American Capitalism and (ahem) Democracy can one find both equality and the ability and environment in which to become rich. “Live the American Dream!” 

 I myself, according to current  rates, am “worth” approximately $30/hr. when I wear my Professional Flooring Specialist hat (24 years owner/installer), $7.50/hr. when I work as Master Control Operator part-time at two commercial broadcasting stations, $10/hr. as general labor, and as much as $150 per player per gig when I perform in my original rock group Pontious Pilot.

 

Today, the measure of one’s “class” in society is entirely linked to money, the possession of wealth, fine possessions, homes, excess,  and any manner of extreme human behavior deemed “acceptable” by “lower” classes due to a perception that  wealth renders the wealthy above and immune to many laws, receive special treatment, etc.  The word “Class”, by its very definition subdivides humanity into at least 3 different and unequal groups that have varied over the centuries but remain firmly entrenched in our psyche.  

 

True Human Equality would see the ideas behind these words become obsolete: Starvation, War, Poverty, Economic Inequality, Wealth, Corruption, Politics, Expensive, Cheap, Budget, Security, Arms, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Handguns, Premature Death, Casualties, Troops, Presidents, Capitalism, Genocide, Mass Murder, Senators, Representatives, Lobbying, Theft, Influence, and just keep going with everything else we know we do because of  selfish, self-serving emotionally-based reasoning.

Renewed WARNING

Renewed WARNING

In “Free Energy Now”, published in 2009 on WordPress, I warned of several scenarios in which the Arctic and Antarctic ice melt could be catastrophic in nature rather than slow and stately, as was assumed before global warming was accounted for. It is now clear that the Arctic Ocean, which contains 15% of the planet’s ice, will be ice-free by the summer of 2021, a mere 7 years from now! Additionally. I reported in my blog that lakes of liquid water have been routinely vanishing overnight for several years now in the Antarctic, which contains 85% of the planet’s ice and is located just above current sea levels. This continent is larger than all of Australia, is inclined at an average angle of 30%, and the ice is nearly 2 miles high on average. Can one imagine this massive continental ice suddenly breaking apart and sliding into the ocean within a matter of hours? A worldwide tsunami would result, surely the worlds greatest catastrophe in modern times. This is very possible, and becomes more likely as we continue to ignore global warming and its cause, the burning of fossil fuels for the production of electricity for our power and locomotion for our vehicles. I will continue anew to attempt to convince anyone of the plan to move to Hydrogen immediately! Please, once again, I ask for all concerned to please support “Free Energy Now, the Ultimate Human Right” as a starting point for a more human, more humane way of living on this tiny sphere and for our future generations! Thank you all!

Actual news of the ongoing irradation of our largest and deepest ocean

November 23, 2013

INTRODUCTION

The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.

The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:

“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”

Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities.

While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)

Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Co  Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.

The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained.

The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, “one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer”.  

An opinion poll in May 2011 confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the Japanese population do not believe the government’s information regarding the nuclear crisis. (quoted in Sherwood Ross,Fukushima: Japan’s Second Nuclear Disaster, Global Research, November 10, 2011)

The Impacts in Japan

The Japanese government has been obliged to acknowledge that “the severity rating of its nuclear crisis … matches that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster”. In a bitter irony, however, this tacit admission by the Japanese authorities has proven to been part of  the cover-up of a significantly larger catastrophe, resulting in a process of global nuclear radiation and contamination:

“While Chernobyl was an enormous unprecedented disaster, it only occurred at one reactor and rapidly melted down. Once cooled, it was able to be covered with a concrete sarcophagus that was constructed with 100,000 workers. There are a staggering 4400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima, which greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl.” ( Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011)

Fukushima in the wake of the Tsunami, March 2011

Worldwide Contamination

The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination. Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:

“Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer”. (Helen Caldicott, Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age,  April 26, 2011)

While the spread of radiation to the West Coast of North America was casually acknowledged, the early press reports (AP and Reuters) “quoting diplomatic sources” stated that only “tiny amounts of radioactive particles have arrived in California but do not pose a threat to human health.”

“According to the news agencies, the unnamed sources have access to data from a network of measuring stations run by the United Nations’ Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization. …

… Greg Jaczko, chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told White House reporters on Thursday (March 17) that his experts “don’t see any concern from radiation levels that could be harmful here in the United States or any of the U.S. territories”.

The spread of radiation. March 2011

Public Health Disaster. Economic Impacts

What prevails is a well organized camouflage. The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities.

Japan as a nation state has been destroyed. Its landmass and territorial waters are contaminated. Part of the country is uninhabitable. High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of  39 million (2010) (more than the population of Canada, circa 34 million (2010)) There are indications that the food chain is contaminated throughout Japan:

Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected in tea made in a factory in Shizuoka City, more than 300 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan.

A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city. The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo. (See 5 More Companies Detect Radiation In Their Tea Above Legal Limits Over 300 KM From Fukushima, June 15, 2011)

Japan’s industrial and manufacturing base is prostrate. Japan is no longer a leading industrial power. The country’s exports have plummeted. The Tokyo government has announced its first trade deficit since 1980.

While the business media has narrowly centered on the impacts of power outages and energy shortages on the pace of productive activity, the broader issue pertaining to the outright radioactive contamination of the country’s infrastructure and industrial base is a “scientific taboo” (i.e the radiation of industrial plants, machinery and equipment, buildings, roads, etc). A report released in January 2012 points to the nuclear contamination of building materials used in the construction industry, in cluding roads and residential buildings throughout Japan.(See  FUKUSHIMA: Radioactive Houses and Roads in Japan. Radioactive Building Materials Sold to over 200 Construction Companies, January 2012)

A “coverup report” by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (May 2011), entitled Economic Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery  presents “Economic Recovery” as a fait accompli. It also brushes aside the issue of radiation. The impacts of nuclear radiation on the work force and the country’s industrial base are not mentioned. The report states that the distance between Tokyo -Fukushima Dai-ichi  is of the order of 230 km (about 144 miles) and that the levels of radiation in Tokyo are lower than in Hong Kong and New York City.(Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery, p.15). This statement is made without corroborating evidence and in overt contradiction with independent radiation readings in Tokyo (se map below). In recent developments, Sohgo Security Services Co. is launching a lucrative “radiation measurement service targeting households in Tokyo and four surrounding prefectures”.

A map of citizens’ measured radiation levels shows radioactivity is distributed in a complex pattern reflecting the mountainous terrain and the shifting winds across a broad area of Japan north of Tokyo which is in the center of the of bottom of the map.”

“Radiation limits begin to be exceeded at just above 0.1 microsieverts/ hour blue. Red is about fifty times the civilian radiation limit at 5.0 microsieverts/hour. Because children are much more sensitive than adults, these results are a great concern for parents of young children in potentially affected areas.

SOURCEScience Magazine

The fundamental question is whether the vast array of industrial goods and components “Made in Japan” — including hi tech components, machinery, electronics, motor vehicles, etc — and exported Worldwide are contaminated? Were this to be the case, the entire East and Southeast Asian industrial base –which depends heavily on Japanese components and industrial technology– would be affected. The potential impacts on international trade would be farreaching. In this regard, in January, Russian officials confiscated irradiated Japanese automobiles and autoparts in the port of Vladivostok for sale in the Russian Federation. Needless to say, incidents of this nature in a global competitive environment, could lead to the demise of the Japanese automobile industry which is already in crisis.

While most of the automotive industry is in central Japan, Nissan’s engine factory in Iwaki city is 42 km from the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Is the Nissan work force affected? Is the engine plant contaminated? The plant is within about 10 to 20 km of the government’s “evacuation zone” from which some 200,000 people were evacuated (see map below).


Nuclear Energy and Nuclear War

The crisis in Japan has also brought into the open the unspoken relationship between nuclear energy and nuclear war.

Nuclear energy is not a civilian economic activity. It is an appendage of the nuclear weapons industry which is controlled by the so-called defense contractors. The powerful corporate interests behind nuclear energy and nuclear weapons overlap.

In Japan at the height of the disaster, “the nuclear industry and government agencies [were] scrambling to prevent the discovery of atomic-bomb research facilities hidden inside Japan’s civilian nuclear power plants”.1  (See Yoichi Shimatsu, Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant? Global Research,  April 12, 2011)

It should be noted that the complacency of both the media and the governments to the hazards of nuclear radiation pertains to the nuclear energy industry as well as to to use of nuclear weapons. In both cases, the devastating health impacts of nuclear radiation are casually denied. Tactical nuclear weapons with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are labelled by the Pentagon as “safe for the surrounding civilian population”.

No concern has been expressed at the political level as to the likely consequences of a US-NATO-Israel attack on Iran, using “safe for civilians” tactical nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state.

Such an action would result in “the unthinkable”: a nuclear holocaust over a large part of the Middle East and Central Asia. A nuclear nightmare, however, would occur even if nuclear weapons were not used. The bombing of Iran’s nuclear facilities using conventional weapons would contribute to unleashing another Fukushima type disaster with extensive radioactive fallout.

We call upon our readers to spread the word.

We invite university, college and high school teachers to make this Interactive Reader on Fukushima available to their students.

Outrage!

October 23, 2013

Dear friends and readers,
Today is October 23, 2013. The ongoing irradiation of the North Pacific Ocean continues unabated. I have not heard or seen any network coverage of this world-changing event. President Obama, to my current knowledge, has not even mentioned this catastrophe! Even on the web, knowledge of this event is not widespread. Are we alive? Does anyone care? What about empathy? Does anyone cry? Do real emotions still exist within humanity? Do you love your children? Is all illusion? Please, spread this news and be righteously OUTRAGED at all who know, yet do not speak.

Ongoing Tragedy Will Touch Us All

September 1, 2013

Thousands of ordinary people, including leading scientists from The Scripts Institute are now confirming that the Cesium now found all across the west coast, including San Francisco, arrived there by ocean water. The amounts are nearing danger levels, and keep climbing. The company so far responsible for the clean up admitted last night that 300 TONS per day of highly irradiated water has been flowing through the remains of reactor # 1 basement since the quake and flowing directly into the ocean. They have declared an emergency and now are seeking help from the Japanese Gov., U.S., and anyone who specializes in cleanup. There was a joint concerted effort to minimize this thing, at first saying that only 1 containment pond had leaked. If you see the newly released NASA montage of the flow of radiation since the quake, it’s 20 times deadlier then thought. Cesium is lighter then water, and so will remain suspended in the water column allowing for evaporation into the atmosphere where it forms as a component of rain clouds. We have measurable levels of Cesium here in Kansas from recent storms, and Cesium is now detectable almost anywhere you look. Of course the levels here haven’t been significant, but will climb around the world as time goes on. It’s not the end of the world, but it is almost certainly the end of most life in our largest and deepest ocean. A critical upper limit has been established that, if reached, would render most of the Northern Pacific permanently unapproachable, not to mention the loss of all higher mammals, including whales, dolphins, seals, etc. The initial air-born plume that lasted for about a week into the quake carried the most radioactive elements directly over the north pole and Greenland, where much of it settled and was not investigated until Eskimos began to report open sores and tumers on Polar bears and seals LAST YEAR! Don’t eat fish or rice from Japan, as it has been sold here since the quake.

Today My Heart Bleeds in Amazement and Horror August 28, 2013

August 28, 2013

Today I learned of an ongoing, seemingly unstoppable catastrophe that has forever changed our world.

 I like to keep track of natural weather-related events because I am a curious and optimistic prophet of doom.  Science has always enthralled me, deciding at age six to become an astronaut as I watched live on our tiny black and white TV Neil Armstrong’s historic step.  I didn’t go to space, but that first thrill hooked me on science of all kinds, especially the explosion of technology and new physics.  I became convinced by 1979 that the earth had been warming since the advent of electricity and combustion engines, and scientists dutifully confirmed this, and have continued to warn us ever since, with ever increasing urgency… If the reader will recall, concern about our dependence on foreign oil and Jimmy Carter told us that we had to wean off fossil fuels as soon as possible, hence the 55 m.p.h. speed limit and early studies of alternatives.  I really liked Jimmy Carter, he was ahead of his time on energy concerns and pollution, and a great farmer.  He didn’t understand the game, but he put it all in there.

I saw this coming then, but after Carter things got hazy and  less commonly reported in the mainstream media.  I knew everything that was going on because I was a science junkie.  Thirteen years ago I finally looked around me carefully at the science community, by then through the amazing and almost unbelievable Internet, and started to worry.  Al Gore, who surely would be President, calmed me down some, because he was also a science junkie and knew about the elephant in the world.

Didn’t happen, and that’s when we as a nation went to hell at full speed.

Finally, my obsession about this problem and the shape of humanity in general got me depressed enough to take it upon myself to solve it.  I know that may sound offhanded, superior, or somehow easy, and the technology and science component of the problem really was very easy and obvious.  I had to do more than business-as-usual to really make this work.  I had to somehow cause a change in human society,  redrawing attention to the reality of our existence, while combatting the clinging ills we can’t seem to quit; chiefly poverty, inequality, and war, and insure the implementation worldwide of all human rights, including the right to use clean energy freely and responsibly.  My three year attempt and final product is humanly possible, easily understood, and as a bonus requires the elimination of militaries as a down-payment.  I believe this attempt landed me in San Francisco, where I met Former Vice President Al Gore, as a trainee for his Climate Reality Project.  I had the plan that could work as a solution.  We talked briefly, and he assured me that he would check it out.  It was a hand-written web address on a paper napkin.

That was last year, and I haven’t heard from him.

Today when I read of the news and finally saw the N.A.S.A  satellite montage compiled over the last year and a half, I knew what it meant.  Almost anyone who views this video can easily see  the radiation spread like the web of a deadly spider, a dark stain that will soon irradiate  the worlds largest and deepest ocean, and begin to spread throughout the atmosphere and fall as deadly rain on lands and seas, eventually detectable within every human being on the planet.

I somehow missed the significance of the broken and leaking reactor, but it is now clear  that the U.S..and Japanese authorities have known about this and have watched this happen from our satellites and detectors that we maintain.  Not a word from the mainstream press so far, or a mention from Obama.  The destruction of our greatest and deepest ocean is surely deserving of at least a heartfelt goodbye.

Goodbye, and we’re sorry.  It is still beyond our technology to put this genie back in its bottle.  We made horrible decisions and knowingly built this near you, our precious ocean and mother to us all.  We allowed individual human beings free reign to pursue profit at your expense, knowing the risks. There is little time left for you.  To all of your splendor, grandeur, beauty, and all who dwell within you, please accept our sincere apology.

Goodbye.

Goodbye.
