Violent eruptions along Russia’s volcano belt are affecting global weather patterns and prices to boot, says this article by Ben Aris.
These volcanoes in Russia are not the only volcanoes that are
blowing huge tonnages of ash and gases into the atmosphere and when
you add them all up, the situation is threatening our climate and
None of us though had an inkling of what the increasing tremors would bring, first to many Japanese coastal cities like the one below, bringing on a terrible war scale destruction - but also a nuclear catastrophe that is unfolding and threatening to be global in proportion.
Letters are already coming in from panicking people on the west coast of North America where jet streams will carry within a few short days, what is being released into the atmosphere at the nuclear facilities in Japan.
They want to know how much iodine to take.
We all know about the devastating tsunami that hit the coast of northeast Japan on Friday in the aftermath of an 8.9 magnitude earthquake about 80 miles offshore, killing hundreds of people and injuring many more.
But 10,000 people are reported missing from this
one town above that was completely wiped out. Nightmarish reports
and photographs are coming in and it looks like a utterly devastated
war zone. Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan is appealing to the
Japanese to unite in overcoming what he says is the nation’s worst
crisis since World War II.
The earthquake triggered widespread power blackouts and, to the horror of an on-looking world, possible meltdowns in several nuclear plants. The world is sitting on the edge of its chair as we wait to see what unfolds.
A complete meltdown - the collapse of a power plant’s systems and its ability to keep temperatures under control - would release uranium and dangerous contaminants into the environment and pose major, widespread health risks. Partial meltdowns are already being reported in two reactors with others still at risk.
monitoring the plant in Fukushima have said they detected a
radioactive byproduct, cesium, that indicates that a partial
meltdown had occurred.
Already as we wake up the news of explosions and contamination at one nuclear plant is flashing around the world.
The explosion was preceded by puff of white smoke that gathered intensity until it became a huge cloud enveloping the entire facility, located in Fukushima, 20 miles (30 kilometers) from Iwaki. After the explosion, the walls of the building crumbled, leaving only a skeletal metal frame. Before the explosion, operators had detected eight times the normal radiation levels outside the facility and 1,000 times normal inside Unit 1’s control room.
An evacuation area around the plant
has been expanded and expanded again as the nuclear threat and
Explosions at the volcanoes were accompanied by minor earthquakes.
Indonesia’s most active volcanoes also erupted hours after a massive earthquake in Japan that triggered a Pacific-wide tsunami.
5,853-foot (1,784-meter) mountain is located on Siau, part of the
Sulawesi island chain. It last erupted in August, killing four
people. Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago, is located on
Pacific “Ring of Fire,”
an arc of volcanoes and fault
lines encircling the Pacific Basin.
We are facing dramatic seismographic events that seem to be gathering momentum around the world and lo and behold, our fantastic governments have not factored protection into nuclear plants - except for in two plants around the world, which have shock absorbers built around the reactors.
In the past 12 months we have seen some huge disasters starting out with,

Dr. Diane Stearns at Northern Arizona University tells us
that separate from any radiation risks, cells exposed to uranium
will bond with the metal chemically. Uranium and phosphate have a
strong chemical affinity for each other and the DNA and mitochondria
are loaded with phosphate so
uranium is a DNA and mitochondria
The Chernobyl incident was a major humanitarian disaster that has resulted in a plethora of health problems still far from being fully recognized.
Most studies analyzing the medical consequences of this catastrophe have so far focused on diseases such as thyroid cancer, leukemia, immune and autoimmune pathology, even though an increase in the incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus, a disorder involving the immune system, was observed within the residential population of Hiroshima among survivors of the atom bomb detonation.

publication of my

of 300 chapters. The point is it already is a fight for survival
that is getting more intense with each and every mega disaster of
either chemical or radioactive nature.
We also have to begin to prepare for even more dramatic threats that the media and our governmental controllers would prefer we not ponder on.
That’s 55 nuclear reactors in harm’s way in Japan alone.

have to be the watchwords of the day.
