EARTH'S MAGNETOPHERE IN PERIL - FORGET ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING, THIS COULD BE CATASTROPHIC

 

Earth's magnetic field is collapsing and it could affect the climate and wipe out power grids

  • Earth's magnetic field has weakened by 15 per cent over the last 200 years
  • Could be a sign that the planet's north and south poles are about to flipIf this happens, solar winds could punch holes into the Earth's ozone layer
  • This could damage power grids, affect weather and increase cancer rates
  • Evidence of flip happening in the past has been uncovered in pottery
  • As the magnetic shield weakens, the spectacle of an aurora would be visible every night all over the Earth

THE BULLET THAT CAN TAKE OUT ALL LIVING ORGANS


New bullet unveiled at Las Vegas gun show this month that is designed to cause as much internal damage as possible to its victim

  • The Radically Invasive Projectile or R.I.P is produced by Georgia based G2 Research
  • It has been dubbed the 'last round you will ever need'
  • The G2R website claims the R.I.P acts as a full metal jacket manufactured with trocar angles, which means that the each of the eight shards has three angles which taper to a point - to 'penetrate the dermis layer more efficiently.'   'It is capable of going through barriers such as sheet rock, plywood, sheet metal or glass and still performs its original intent. The bullet shreds through solid objects and only then, expands its energy,' claims the G2R website.

    ANGRY BIRDS WEBSITE HACKED - AFTER BEING ACCUSED OF GATHERING DATA ABOUT USERS


    The web site of Angry Birds app maker Rovio has been hacked two days after reports that the personal data of its customers might have been accessed by U.S. and British spy agencies. 
     
    Rovio spokeswoman says the hacking lasted a few minutes early Wednesday and that end-user data 'was in no risk at any point.'  The hacking came after documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden suggested that the NSA and Britain's GCHQ had been able to extract information through a host of smartphone apps across the globe, including the Angry Birds game franchise.  Rovio has denied the claims, saying it does not "share data, collaborate or collude" with any spy agencies and that it would re-evaluate third-party advertising networks.

    THE GERMAN JIHADISTS' COLONY IN SYRIA

     
    By Benjamin Weinthal
    19th December 2013 -
    The Long War Journal 
                 
    Germany's Syria policy is one of the most paradoxical within the European Union. In contrast to her French and British counterparts, Chancellor Angela Merkel has opposed all forms of military intervention and lethal aid designed to topple Bashar al Assad's regime.
     
    Yet a steady stream of German Muslims continues to enter the war zone and embrace jihad. To be fair, sizable numbers of Muslims (as of early December, between 1,500 and 2,000) from across Europe have managed to travel to Syria because of lax Turkish border policies and the wide latitude afforded to those with Western passports.
     

    GERMANY REVIVES THE NAZI BOYCOTT OF JEWISH PRODUCTS


    After the Second World War Germans continued to be involved - in one way or another - in the killing of Jews.
     
    Escaped Nazi criminals escaped to Arab countries after the war with the specific goal of training the PLO to terrorize and kill Jews. 
     
    East Germany gave open support to Arab terrorists during the Cold War.  They armed them, they trained them, they hosted them in Germany.
     
    Now unified Germany continues to pressure Israel to give up its ancient heartland in order to create another Arab state on Biblical Jewish Israel.
     
    German pressure does not seem to be enough.  Germans are now part of an vicious boycott of Israeli products that originate from Israeli land the Arabs demand for their planned Islamic Palestinian state.
     
    Funny, the Germans did not want the Jews in Europe, and now they don't want Jews in their own Jewish land either.

    GERMANY REVIVES THE JEWISH BOYCOTT
     
    By Joseph Puder, Frontpage Magazine
     
    China employs slave labor and illegally occupies Tibet. Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the governments of the entire Arab Middle East are violators of human rights, deniers of religious freedom, and for that matter, undemocratic to boot. And yet, none of these miscreant states are subjected to economic boycott.
     
    Israel’s products, however, originating in the biblical regions of Judea and Samaria (also called the West Bank), are being boycotted by none other than the German government. Germany now says it supports the European Union’s plan to discriminatively label Jewish-made products in this region, the purpose of which is to stigmatize and mark the products for consumers to avoid. The EU campaign is designed to curry favor with the Arab world, which smacks more than anything of Jew-hating.
     
    The German government’s resolution that considers Judea and Samaria as not being part of Israel and thus supports labeling products from Jewish settlements was initiated by the Green Party, not by Merkel’s Christian Democratic Party. Nevertheless, making it law amounts to what Denis MacShane, former British Labor Party MP and expert on anti-Semitism called, ‘Kauf nicht bei Juden’ (“Do not buy from Jews”) policy.

    SNOWY OWL HIT BY BUS IN WASHINGTON DC - INJURED BUT ALIVE

    By Michael E. Ruane, Washington Post
     
    The majestic snowy owl that has captivated the District in recent days was apparently hit by a bus downtown early Thursday. It suffered a broken toe and possible internal injuries.  The adult owl was struck near 15th and I streets NW and taken by police to the National Zoo, where it was treated. The owl also may have suffered a head injury.  Upon arrival at the zoo, the owl was alert and responsive but subdued, officials there said. There were no obvious physical injuries, although there was blood on the bird and in its mouth, which is consistent with head trauma.

    US GOVERNMENT BORDER PLAN FOR ISRAEL AIMS AT ANOTHER HOLOCAUST

    'US Plans Auschwitz Borders To Complete Holocaust'

    Attorney Yoram Sheftel notes American and European complicity in the Holocaust, warns against submitting to current pressure.
     
    Attorney and current affairs analyst Yoram Sheftel remarked that this week, following International Holocaust Remembrance Day, it is particularly timely to remember the global complicity in the Holocaust, and heed the warnings not to rely on the world again.
     
    "Precisely this week it's important to remember the crimes of the European countries, Russia and the US that secretly in their hearts hoped (Nazi leader Adolf) Hitler would finish the job" and wipe out the Jewish people, commented Sheftel to Arutz Sheva.

    THE COLDEST CITY ON EARTH - YAKUTSK, RUSSIA - AT -50 CELSIUS

    The city of Yakutsk. Located six time zones from the Russian capital, 280 miles south of the of the Arctic Circle, and with an average winter temperature of just below -40C, it can (un)comfortably claim the title Coldest City on Earth. 
     
    The swing in temperature between seasons is extreme, as it is not unusual for summer days to bask in 25C of glorious sunshine, only for the winter months to plunge 60 degrees - or more.  The record low for Yakutsk was an unbearable February day when the mercury hit -64.4C, however today, the city experienced a 'mere' -49C.
    The ground underneath it is permanently frozen, making tall buildings difficult, and any major building project risky, as nearly everything has to be built on concrete piles above ground.  Despite the deterring conditions - forget snow days, schools only close if the temperature drops below -52C - it is home to 270,000 people, a quarter of the entire population of Siberia.

    BIGGEST WHALE SHARK PROCESSING FACTORY FOUND IN CHINA - THE MASSACRE OF THESE CREATURES INCREASES WITH DEMAND

     
    A factory which processes around 600 whale sharks annually has been found in southern China, a conservation group said Monday, calling it the world's biggest slaughterhouse for the endangered species.  Hong Kong-based conservation group WildLifeRisk said it discovered the factory in the town of Pu Qi in Zhejiang province after a four-year investigation.
     
    It said the sharks are slaughtered and processed mostly to produce shark oil for health supplements.
     
    Undercover video footage produced by the group showed workers cutting up the large dotted back fins of whale sharks and other shark species.  "How these harmless creatures, these gentle giants of the deep, can be slaughtered on such an industrial scale is beyond belief," said a WildLifeRisk statement sent to AFP.  "It's even more incredible that this carnage is all for the sake of non-essential lifestyle props such as lipsticks, face creams, health supplements and shark fin soup." 

    WEIRD PHYSICS EXPERIMENT TO DEMONSTRATE REVERSE CAUSALITY, OR ENTANGLEMENT, OR SPOOKY ACTION AT A DISTANCE

    By Alan Boyle, Science Editor - NBC News
     
    Since 2007, University of Washington physicist John Cramer has been working with lasers and mirrors to conduct experiments aimed at demonstrating whether causality can appear to go backward in time, as observed in a specific reference frame.
     
    A physicist who has been looking for evidence that causality can go backward in time says he's making progress on nailing down the theoretical foundations for such quantum weirdness.  For years, the University of Washington's John Cramer has been trying to set up an experimental apparatus that would demonstrate what's known as "quantum nonlocal communication" — a characteristic of quantum mechanics that implies what you do to one entangled particle could affect what happens to a different particle earlier in time.
     
    When Cramer started working on the crowdfunded experiment in 2007, he expected either to find evidence of such retrocausality — which would blow our minds — or to find out that subtle quantum effects kept spoiling the experiment.  So far, Cramer's own experiments have played out according to the latter, less exciting scenario. But the physicist says he's been having "very fruitful discussions" with Anton Zeilinger and his colleagues at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna. Like Cramer, Zeilinger is a pioneer in the study of quantum physics' spooky implications, including retrocausality.
     
    "I learned a lot," Cramer told NBC News in an email. "Result: After returning to Seattle, I was able to develop quantum mechanical calculations that reproduce the unpublished data of Zeilinger's group in testing an entangled photon setup similar to mine. These quantum calculations also point to a way of implementing nonlocal signaling."  Cramer said the new scheme differs significantly from his previous experimental setups and needs to be tested. "I'm presently working on generating funding for that test," he wrote.

    VIDEO PHONE FOR PETS SO THAT THEY AND THEIR OWNERS CAN STAY IN TOUCH

    US company PetChatz has developed the novel device.  It allows owners to speak to pests through their smartphones.  The makers claim it will help assuage the guilt of leaving pets alone.
     
    The system features a colour camera that allows the owner to check on their pet.  And with animals said to be able to follow images much better on modern screens, it can see their owner’s familiar face once they are taught to respond to a calling tone.  It can also record clips over a wi-fi network.  Both cats and dogs can see in colour, although neither animal’s eyesight is as good as a human’s.  A special tone tells pets their owner is calling so they can be trained to run to the video phone.

    Drowning in misery: Homes flooded for a month, vast tracts of farmland wrecked, lives put on hold... all because of staggering incompetence

    • Huge swathes of the Somerset Levels have been under water since Christmas
    • Now experts say Environment Agency's decision to stop dredging rivers had created 25-square-mile 'disaster area'
    • Two key Somerset rivers are so silted up that their capacity is down 40 per cent, meaning water is unable to run to sea
    Furious flood victims last night accused officials of gross incompetence and abandoning them to the elements.  They said they feared the ‘worst was yet to come’ in the Somerset Levels, huge stretches of which have been under water since Christmas.

    EXTREME COLD GRIPS THE UNITED STATES SOUTH AND MIDWEST

    'Once in a generation' ice storm descends on South as brutal cold continues to blanket the Midwest - closing schools, freezing rivers and grounding more than 3,200 flights

    • Usually warm-weather destinations including Savannah, Georgia and Pensacola, Florida will see snow and ice today
    • Parts of the Midwest including Chicago and Minneapolis will endure a second consecutive day of subzero temperatures
    • 80 million people are affected by wind chill advisories
    • Schools and universities across the South and Midwest are closed, while airports and Amtrak have canceled journeys
    A blast of freezing rain will scatter snow and ice across the Deep South today, prompting officials from New Orleans to Virginia to ready road crews and close schools in what has been called a 'once in a generation' ice storm.  And as the winter storm system brings freezing snow and high winds to the South, the brutal cold temperatures will continue to rattle the Midwest throughout Tuesday.  Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee and other parts of the Midwest will endure a second consecutive day of subzero highs, while much of the Northeast will see temperatures in the single digits and teens, Accuweather.com reported.

    STONE AGE ATLANTIS FOUND UNDER THE BALTIC SEA - IT HAS EXTINCT AUROCHS REMAINS

    Swedish divers unearth a 'Stone Age Atlantis': 11,000-year-old ancient settlement discovered under the Baltic Sea
    • Divers found a harpoon, tools, horns and the bones of ancient cattle
    • The bones belonged to the animal auroch last seen in the early 1600s
    • Archaeologists believe these relics date back to the Stone Age
    • It is said to be the oldest settlement in the area - dubbed Sweden’s 'Atlantis'
    Aurochs are ancestors of modern-day cattle and lived through Europe before becoming extinct in the early 1600s. The last reported auroch died in Poland in 1627.  This find is significant because it suggests a date for when these items would have been used.  Many of the artefacts have been preserved because the diving location is rich in a sediment called gyttja.  

    The artefacts were discovered by Professor Bjorn Nilsson from Soderton University, and a team from Lunds University, during an archaeological dive at Hano, off the coast of Skane County in Sweden.   Buried 16 metres below the surface, Nilsson uncovered wood, flint tools, animal horns and ropes

    MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS MAY BE TRIGGERED BY FOOD BACTERIA

     

    Multiple sclerosis may be triggered by FOOD: Toxin produced by common bacteria could cause disease

    • Microbiologists from the Weill Cornell Medical College, New York City, built on previous research that suggested epsilon toxin could trigger M.S.
    • Epsilon toxin is produced by strains of Clostridium perfringens - a spore-forming bacterium that can cause of foodborne illness
    • Development of a neutralising antibody or vaccine directed against the epsilon toxin might stop the progression of the disease
    MS is characterised by blood brain permeability and demyelination - a process in which the insulating myelin sheaths of neurons are damaged.
     
    Microbiologist Jennifer Linden of Weill Cornell Medical College, New York City, said: ‘We provide evidence that supports epsilon toxin’s ability to cause permeability and show that epsilon toxin kills the brain’s myelin producing cells, oligodendrocytes - the same cells that die in MS lesions.’

    Multiple Sclerosis or MS is known as an autoimmune condition.  This is where something goes wrong with the immune system - the body’s defence against infection - and it mistakenly attacks healthy body tissue – in this case, the myelin covering of nerves.  This can cause multiple sections of the brain and spinal column to become damaged and hardened, which can disrupt the nerve signals passing through these areas.  Exactly what causes the immune system to act in this way is unclear, but most experts think a combination of genetic and environmental factors are involved.  This new study finds that epsilon toxin could be one of the triggers.

    A MESSAGE FOR THE NAIVE? PEACE DOVES RELEASED BY POPE ARE ATTACKED BY CARNIVOROUS BIRDS

     
    Who can argue with the word PEACE?  That's why it's sometimes grossly misused by those manipulating world events to deviously achieve their means.
     
    A typical case is the euphemism "Peace" in the Arab Israeli conflict.  Arabs and their allies, including the United States government, use that word to hide their agenda, which is nothing less than the eventual dismantlement of the state of Israel. 
     
    "Peace" advocates don't ask for even the most minimum gestures of peace from Israel's enemies.  The Arabs feel free to use incitement, violence, lies and terror.  The world looks the other way.
     
    But when Jews build houses, there is a loud outcry all over the globe, including governments, the United Nations, and "peace activists". They look away from daily carnage and denounce instead peaceful Jews building homes in their own country.
     
    The Arabs set up illegal squatter camps all over Israel, on both sides of the Green Line.  But advocates of peace do not consider that an infraction or an obstacle to peace.  On the contrary. They assist them in the name of "humanitarianism".
     
    Now this pope makes a gesture to symbolize peace - and Life's harsh reality - or maybe God himself - sends him a clear message:  You can't make peace with those who want to destroy you.

    Incidentally, the Pope will soon visit the Holy Land, but he refuses to say mass in Israel's capital, Jerusalem or to meet with PM Netanyahu.  

    However, he will say mass in the Arab-populated town of Ramallah, in the Palestinian Authority.  The pope knows about symbols and this is a clear snub to Israel.  Popes have warmly welcomed terrorists such as Yassir Arafat, and the financial mastermind of the Munich Olympic Massacre, the current president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmood Abbas.   Abbas visited the pope only a few months ago.

    During the Nazi regime in Germany, the Vatican not only refused to help the Jews, but it did everything possible to help Nazi murderers escape justice by creating the Rat Lines, which allowed them to flee to other countries.

    WHY DO WE DECEIVE OTHERS AND OURSELVES?


    By  Paul Raeburn - Discover Magazine

    Why do we lie to ourselves?  That’s what evolutionary biologist Robert Trivers has spent 30 years trying to figure out. 
     
    “Our sensory systems are organized to give us a detailed and accurate view of reality,” he says, “but once this information arrives in our brains, it is often distorted and biased to our conscious minds.” We repress painful memories, create false ones, rationalize immoral behavior and jack up our self-esteem. We deny ourselves the truth.

    WALTER, THE BRAVE, RESILIENT, AND NOW A VERY HAPPY OTTER, IS BASKING IN THE LOVE AND ATTENTION PROVIDED BY THE VANCOUVER AQUARIUM - HIS FOREVER HOME.

    He is still blind and so unable to forage or defend himself against predators (and murderous humans with guns), so he is being adopted as a permanent resident of the Vancouver Aquarium.  It was the wonderful medical team of the aquarium that saved Walter's life and treated his injuries to his face, teeth and flipper caused by the shots.

    WEST VIRGINIA CHEMICAL LEAK - INFORMATION ABOUT ANOTHER TOXIC INGREDIENT IN THE SPILL WAS WITHHELD BY COMPANY



    It has been discovered that a second toxic chemical has been leaked into the water supply, and it wasn’t reported by the sketchy Freedom Industries until 12 days after they realized that the leak had occurred. Apparently this chemical was in the same tank that polluted the water with 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol.   This chemical was not reported because they just figured the water treatment facility would take care of it.

    -  Local officials whitewashing the situation
    -  Freedom Industries is frantic to reduce their liability 
    -  Reports on safety are conflicting.
    -  Symptoms are downplayed.

    WHAT PALESTINIANS REALLY WANT - AN APARTHEID STATE WITH NO JEWS AND NO CITIZENSHIP FOR ARAB REFUGEES

    In Israel about 20% of the population are Arabs with Israeli citizenship.  They enjoy the same rights as other citizens.  T

    hey are elected to Parliament, work as judges, doctors, teachers, and more.  But the world calls Israel an "apartheid state".  The same critics take no notice of the fact that the Palestinian state they promote would truly be an apartheid state.  

    The Daily Star, Lebanon - Palestinian refugees will NOT become citizens of a new Palestinian state, according to Palestine’s ambassador to Lebanon, even those now living in refugee camps in the West Bank.
    From behind a desk topped by a miniature model of Palestine’s hoped-for blue United Nations chair, Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah spoke to The Daily Star Wednesday about Palestine’s upcoming bid for U.N. statehood.

    The ambassador unequivocally says that Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of the sought for U.N.-recognized Palestinian state, an issue that has been much discussed. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity,” he says. “But … they are not automatically citizens.”

    This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that

    even Palestinian refugees who are living in (refugee camps) inside the (Palestinian) state, they are still refugees.  They will not be considered citizens.


    Abdullah said that the new Palestinian state would “absolutely not” be issuing Palestinian passports to refugees. 

    The Palestinian Liberation Organization would remain responsible for refugees, and Abdullah says that UNRWA would continue its work as usual.

    WEST VIRGINIA DISASTER - STORES WERE EMPTIED WITHIN AN HOUR - ARE YOU PREPARED?



    By Mac Slavo,  SHTFplan.com

    When toxic chemicals spilled into the Elk River in Charleston, West Virginia a couple of weeks ago we got another glimpse into what the world might look like in the aftermath of a major, widespread disaster.  There were several lessons we can take from this regional emergency and all of them are pretty much exactly what you might expect would happen when the water supplies for 300,000 people become suddenly unavailable.

    Lesson #1: There will be immediate panic

    DWARF PLANET CERES IS GUSHING WITH WATER



  • The round dwarf planet otherwise known as the largest asteroid in the solar system is releasing water vapour at a rate of 13lb (6kg) per second
  • Observations by the European Space Agency's Herschel telescope suggest it could be coming from geysers or ice volcanoes
  • WHAT THE WORLD REFUSES TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST - TORTURE THEN, TORTURE NOW

    THAT WAS THEN:

    The 2,300-year-old torture chamber: Ancient dungeon containing a 'bloody well and death rooms' unearthed in Turkey


  • Archaeologists discovered 2,300-year-old dungeons in Bursa, Turkey
  • The dungeons were found to contain a bloody well and torture chambers
  • Deaf and mute hangmen would have thrown prisoner’s heads into the well
  • The bodies would then have been passed to the prisoner’s relatives
  • Chambers found during excavations set to become an open-air museum

    THIS IS NOW:


    Syrian regime 'torture' photographs could be the tip of the iceberg, warn human rights experts: Hague says those responsible for 'horrific crimes' must be brought to justice.

    SPIDER SCULPTS DECOY OF ITSELF USING LEAVES AND OTHER DEBRIS



  • Spider species was discovered in the Peruvian Amazon in 2012
  • It builds decoy spiders and hangs them in its web to fool predators
  • These elaborate decoys are made from dead insects, debris and leaves
  • This unusual behaviour has now been caught on film in an amazing video
  • The spider is believed to be a new species of Cyclosa - a genus which includes other sculpting arachnids, but none of which of which have been observed to build replicas with multiple, spidery legs.

    DUDLEY THE DUCK GETS A 3D PRINTED FOOT AFTER HE LOST HIS IN A FIGHT WITH A CHICKEN

    After being beaten up by a chicken and losing his brother and leg in the fight, life was looking decidedly dodgy for Dudley the duckling.  However, thanks to 3D printing technology, the Canadian animal has a new lease of life - and a new leg.  Terence Loring, a 32 year old mechanical engineer and architect, decided to help Dudley after hearing about him from his martial arts instructor.

    WE ARE NOT JUST STAR DUST - OUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS CONNECTED TO THE UNIVERSE, SAY SCIENTISTS



    An apparent discovery of quantum vibrations in microtubules inside neurons is rekindling a twenty-year old debate on the nature of consciousness.  Called the ORCH OR model, it suggests there is a connection between the brain's biomolecular processes and the basic structure of the universe.

    SOMETHING STILL APPEARS TO BE WRONG WITH WEST VIRGINIA WATER AFTER THE CHEMICAL SPILL - VICTIMS FLOCKING TO HOSPITALS


    Hospital admissions over W. Virginia chemical spill 
    double even after water declared safe

    Despite recent declarations that the water in West Virginia is now safe to use, hospital admissions related to the Kanawha Valley chemical spill have doubled over the last week.  About a week and a half ago, a chemical mixture used to wash coal – called “Crude MCHM” – began leaking into the Elk River, contaminating the water supply used by nine counties and roughly 300,000 people.

    According to a recent story by the Charleston Gazette, 411 patients have been treated for chemical-related maladies at 10 different hospitals between January 9 and January 18. That’s a significant rise when compared to the numbers from just two days prior, when 317 individuals were treated for chemical exposure.

    2013 - OUR YEAR OF APATHY AND COWARDICE - WHILE THE FUKUSHIMA ECOCIDE GOES ON

    Commentary by Tracy W.


    We are often reminded of crucial moments of history when events cascade apparently with a force of their own - while people look on as deer in the headlights.  Historians review those events later on and can pinpoint the missed opportunities when even a small nudge would have changed the course of events.  But people waited for others to take the initiative, and finally hoped or prayed for the best outcome. 

    2013, as 2012 and even 2011 will be remembered as years of shameful failure to act in face of a momentous event:  the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

    WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE
    Originally blamed on an earthquake and tsunami, those immediately responsible for the nuclear catastrophe - Tepco and the Japanese government -  have avoided responsibility.  But there are other layers that extend from that center of responsibility.  There is the nuclear industry, the scientific establishment, the media, environmental organizations and independent activists, other governments, nuclear watchdogs, and us, the publicWe are all responsible for the way the Fukushima disaster has escalated due to mismanagement at the top.

    To this day they are playing down the situation.  No, they say, it's not as bad as it sounds.  The moment they acknowledge the truth, they would have to do something about it.  And it would cost money.  It's better for all involved, it seems, to let events unfold until the moment when they can claim it's too late to do anything about it.

    IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE
    This reminds us of the Second World War.  The Nazis and their allies were perpetrating all kinds of atrocities.  They started small, with harassment, incarceration, confiscation of personal property.  The West dismissed all that as rumors - or aberrations, at worst.

    The Nazis moved on to rounding up entire communities and exterminating them.  That too was played down by the western media.  They West had its excuses.  Governments - including the United States and British governments - kept silent and did nothing.  Their motives were vile. 
     (If they helped Jews survive, they would have had to take them in, give them a home (Gasp!) maybe even in Britain and the United States.  Or in Palestine, which they wanted very much to gift to the Arabs.

    When the whole conflagration was over, they - governments, the media and the public - claimed they never knew the extent of the genocide.  Millions of people died because good people refused to act when it was still time to prevent it.

    THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY.
    The nuclear industry has enjoyed a smooth ride all these years, helped, curiously, by the environmentalists. The environmentalists have used and nurtured the threat of Global Warming, and have often portrayed nuclear reactors as a desirable alternative to the Big Bad Fossil Fuels.

    There has been barely any questioning of the nuclear industry, in spite of several close calls where a major disaster was barely averted in the United States.  Furthermore, there are official scientific records that attest to the dangerous and unpredictable nature of this industry.  The very simple fact that there is no effective way to dispose of nuclear waste should give anybody with two brain cells to rub together, pause to reflect.

    The Hanford nuclear waste facility in Washington state is leaking all over the place, with radioactive waste very close to (or already in) the Columbia river.  The condition of radioactive waste tanks is so precarious that scientists fear that they could explode, contaminating a large area of the American and Canadian west.

    AND NOW FUKUSHIMA.
    There was a time at the start of this disaster when the most logical move would have been for the international community to organize and gather the most knowledgeable scientists and technicians to brainstorm and come up with possible solutions to mitigate the damage.  Nothing was done.  And nothing is being done, three years after the fact.

    Scientists have remained mostly silent.  The few who feel obligated to pay lip service to this tragedy, do it with measured words, lest they'll be shunned by their colleagues for being "alarmists".  Being shunned by the scientific establishment means putting their jobs, grants and reputations at risk.  Their moral duty to inform governments and the public is shunted aside.

    The media, with their compromised loyalties, are also playing along with governments in keeping a lid on the most disturbing information.  Only in the past year or so they have published a few reports here and there, to assuage their conscience.

    2014 will go on, and Fukushima will continue to worsen.  But not until the figures for the human and animal casualties are put together, will we know how we slept while this ecocide was going on.

    How will we answer to future generations

    How will we answer our conscience?
