Radioactive Water Buildup Grows as ‘Decontamination’ System at Fukushima Fails Again

At the destroyed Fukushima nuclear plant, a defect has again forced the shutdown of the decontamination system that is central to the radioactive water cleanup strategy, owner Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced Tuesday. According to TEPCO, the Advanced Liquid Processing System (ALPS) — designed to decontaminate the water used to cool melted reactors — was turned off after leaks were discovered by workers Monday night.

Ohio Halts Fracking After Series Of Earthquakes

A string of small earthquakes in Mahoning County, Ohio this week triggered the Ohio State Department of Natural Resources to order a halt on fracking operations near the tremor site. Hilcorp Energy, which is producing oil and natural gas out of the Utica Shale, is the only company with fracking operations near the epicenter. Although, the boom in oil and gas drilling central and southern U.S. has been tied to an increase in the number of earthquakes in the region, RT’s Perianne Boring reporters there is little evidence to show that hydraulic fracturing is actually the cause.

Fracking in Public Forests Leaves Long Trail of Damages, Struggling State Regulators

Last Wednesday, the Washington D.C. city council passed a resolution opposing fracking in the George Washington National Forest, making the nation’s capitol the third major U.S. city, after Los Angeles and Dallas, to decry the hazards of shale drilling in recent days. The D.C. council’s resolution called on the U.S. Forest Service to prohibit horizontal hydraulic fracturing in the forest’s headwaters of the Potomac River, the sole source of water for the nation’s capital, citing the risks of pollution and the costs of monitoring for contamination.

Study: Pesticide Ingredients Far More Dangerous than Reported

As a new study to be found in BioMed Research International points out, pesticides are far more toxic than their makers and regulators would have us believe. The research indicates some of the ingredients within these poisons actually amplify the toxicity of the individual ingredients.

New Highly Radioactive Leak Found at Fukushima Plant

Just when we thought things couldn’t get worse for the Fukushima nuclear disaster, officials announced this week that a leak in a holding tank recently allowed 100 tons of contaminated water to pour out. Not surprisingly, however, Tokyo Electric Power Co. has said there is nothing to worry about and that the water was “unlikely to have reached the ocean.”

Open Letter to the U.S. Congress, EPA, NOAA, NASA, and all involved in Geoengineering including the Air Force

Catherine J. Frompovich: Right out of the chute, here’s my question: What’s going on in the skies above the USA (and globally) that you will not admit to, but apparently are involved with, including obviously preventing the media and press from reporting about your involvement in weather geoengineering. [1] It apparently is a conspiracy since so many U.S. government agencies obviously are involved either by active participation or active deflective practices or deliberate media spin control.

Fukushima’s Radioactive Ocean Water Arrives At West Coast

Radiation from Japan’s leaking Fukushima nuclear power plant has reached waters offshore Canada, researchers said today at the annual American Geophysical Union’s Ocean Sciences Meeting in Honolulu. Two radioactive cesium isotopes, cesium-134 and cesium-137, have been detected offshore of Vancouver, British Columbia, researchers said at a news conference. The detected concentrations are much lower than the Canadian safety limit for cesium levels in drinking water, said John Smith, a research scientist at Canada’s Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
