Fukushima's $70 Billion Cleanup Leaves Foreign Firms in Cold

December 24, 2016

Cleaning up the Fukushima nuclear plant -- a task predicted to cost 86 times the amount earmarked for decommissioning Japan's first commercial reactor -- is the mother of all salvage jobs.

Safely dismantling the Japanese power plant, wrecked by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, will cost about 8 trillion yen ($68 billion), the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said Dec. 9, quadrupling the previous estimate. While a contract to help clean up the facility would be a windfall for any firm with specialized technology, the lion's share of the work has gone to local companies that designed and built most of Japan's atomic infrastructure.

Arctic ice melt poses a risk of uncontrollable climate change, scientists say

Melting in the Arctic is an example of climate changes that, if not stopped and reversed, could become drivers of climate change in their own right.

A number of the tipping points relate to shrinking areas of ice, both on sea and on land. As you might expect, sea ice and land ice are both highly reflective, acting like mirrors reflecting much of the sun's energy back into space. When ice cover is reduced, that energy is instead absorbed as heat, leading to a rise in temperatures. This, in turn, triggers further melting and additional temperature rises.

A devastating earthquake has hit the coast of Japan, with fears for the safety of nearby nuclear power stations.

The Japan Meteorological Agency have said that this new quake was actually an aftershock from the previous one, and have warned that further aftershocks could follow. The 2011 quake was catastrophic in it's destruction, killing 15,891 people, with a further 2,584 missing. It destroyed countless homes and ruined people's livelihoods. The fear that these quakes will cause a huge problem in the nuclear power sector is very real. About 30% of all Japan's power comes from nuclear power stations, many of which are located on the coast where the earthquakes tend to strike.

ATF: Gun Purchases Barred Even for 'Legalized' Marijuana Use

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is clarifying language on background check form 4473 to let would-be gun buyers know that even "legalized" marijuana use bars them from purchasing a firearm.

The clarification comes in light of "the conflict between Colorado law and federal law," which results from the dichotomy of marijuana being legal at the state level but federally unlawful.

CONSPIRACY theorists claim two odd cloud sightings are proof the government is secretly still carrying out high-tech weather experiments which officially ceased more than a year ago.

UFO shaped clouds seen over Texas and a strange light seen darting above Indiana have sparked claims the controversial High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) was being restarted. Others believe the two incidents in America could even be down to so-called "cloaked UFOs" when flying saucers are supposedly concealed among clouds.

Geo-engineering, a term to describe the deliberate and large-scale intervention into the earth's climatic system. 10 years ago the concept of chemtrails and weather modification was scoffed at as conspiracy, now it's becoming more a reality every day.

We've covered the geo-engineering reality in depth over the years, bringing forward information from insiders, whistleblowers and scientists all speaking about the issue.

Yesterday, at the hospital in Germany where I work,we had a meeting about how the influx of muslim immigrants from the middle east is simply unsustainable. Walk in Health Clinics cannot handle emergencies.

Many muslims are refusing treatment by female staff here in Germany. The muslim men make sick, crude comments and overtures to the female staff members, because to them any non-muslim woman is a whore or a future slave. After brief exposure to these cruel, sadistic, female hating beats, we, women, are refusing to go among those animals, especially the muslim men from Africa.
