EMERSON URRY OF ENVIRONEWS FOR BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT

Radioactive particles of uranium, thorium, radium, cesium, strontium, polonium, tellurium and americium are still afloat throughout Northern Japan more than six years after a tsunami slammed into the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant causing three full-blown nuclear meltdowns. That was the conclusion reached by two of the world’s leading radiation experts after conducting an extensive five-year monitoring project.

Arnie Gundersen and Marco Kaltofen authored the peer reviewed study titled, Radioactively-hot particles detected in dusts and soils from Northern Japan by combination of gamma spectrometry, autoradiography, and SEM/EDS analysis and implications in radiation risk assessment, published July 27, 2017, in Science of the Total Environment (STOLEN).

Gundersen represents Fairewinds Associates and is a nuclear engineer, former power plant operator and industry executive, turned whistleblower, and was CNN’s play-by-play on-air expert during the 2011 meltdowns. Kaltofen, of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), is a licensed civil engineer and is renowned as a leading experts on radioactive contamination in the environment.

415 samples of “dust and surface soil” were “analyzed sequentially by gamma spectrometry, autoradiography, and scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis” between 2011 and 2016. 180 of the samples came from Japan while another 235 were taken from the United States and Canada. The study further clarifies, “Of these 180 Japanese particulate matter samples, 57 were automobile or home air filters, 59 were surface dust samples, 29 were street dusts (accumulated surface soils and dusts) and 33 were vacuum cleaner bag or other dust samples.” (Click to Site)

Legal Dilemma: Sexbots vs. ‘The Thought Police’

21st Century Wire

Back in 2016, 21WIRE filed a somewhat shocking report about a high-profile robotics professor who sounded a dystopian alarm – warning that in the very near future people will be losing their virginity to robots.

Noel Sharkey, professor of robotics at Sheffield University, warned that many teens in the future may have their first sexual encounters with specially-designed robotic dolls. The implications of this would be devastating for society and perhaps even civilization as we know it. In short, they have the potential to ruin human relationships.

Futurologist Dr Ian Pearson released a report on trends in sex robots, claiming that by the year 2050 western society will see robot sex overtaking human-to-human sex.

The ethical and legal implications of this technology are no less astounding, and will challenge the current legal system in ways that may be hard to envisage in today’s world. Whereas social justice activists, like Obama advisor Cass Sunstein, are campaigning for animals to be given the legal right to sue a human in a court of law, will robots which possess an artificial intelligence ‘agency’ also be awarded rights like humans? Undoubtedly, there are enterprising lawyers who are looking at this as a potential market for legal services.

Some of these paradigm shifts have been alluded to in the 2015 film, Ex Machina, and also in the British Channel 4 TV series Humans, where life-like, humanoid robots were marketed as a replacement for human domestic workers, and as sex workers in the newly regulated cybernetic-based adult entertainment industry. Much of it comes down to economics, however. In his feature, The Android Affair: Humanity Outsourced21WIRE writer Randy Johnson talks about the ethical and social dilemmas that this new technology will introduce into the mix. He identifies some of the economic realities which will be driving the emerging ‘sex bot’ industry. Johnson explains: (Click to Site)

Big Pharma’s toxic drugs will kill over 45,000% more people than global warming by the year 2100, scientists discover … Media SILENT

Natural NewsA study by researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill has sent shock-waves across the globe with its finding that over 260,000 people will die prematurely by the year 2100 because of air pollution triggered by global warming. The “catastrophic man-made global warming” alarmists love these kinds of studies, of course, because they reinforce their doomsday predictions. However, even if these researchers’ alarming findings are 100 percent reliable (and there is enough conflicting evidence out there to make that highly unlikely), even a quarter of a million people would be a drop in the ocean compared to the number of people that Big Pharma will likely kill by 2100. More on that later.

The UNC researchers reached their alarming conclusions after analyzing data from the globe’s top climate change modeling groups. Well, that already puts their findings on shaky ground, doesn’t it? (Related: The REAL FAKE NEWS exposed: ‘97% of scientists agree on climate change’ is an engineered hoax … Here’s what the media never told you.)

According to the Daily Mail, the researchers believe that hotter temperatures will cause an increase in the speed of the chemical reactions that cause air pollutants, and that as areas become increasingly drier, there will be less rain to remove these pollutants. These higher temperatures will also cause trees to emit more organic pollutants.

The study predicts that this toxic combination will result in killer smog that will kill 260,000 people across the globe (with the exception of Africa) by 2100.

The Mail reports:

The rise in toxic air pollution adds to other risk of death from climate change including heat stress, a lack of clean water and food, severe storms and the spread of infectious diseases.

The study was published in the Nature journal, Climate Change.

Of course, the mainstream media has been quick to jump all over this story, blasting readers with headlines like the Mail’s “Global warming will cause 260,000 premature deaths from air pollution by 2100, shocking study finds.” While that number does seem high, and it is true that pollution causes many deaths worldwide each year, there is a far more alarming number that the mainstream media has made no attempt to disclose: The number of deaths attributable to Big Pharma and its toxic chemicals.

The website PharmaDeathClock.com has been shining a light on this disturbing number for some time now. It constantly updates real-time numbers of victims killed by Big Pharma in the U.S. and worldwide since January 1, 2000. Some of the numbers included are for deaths which are not directly attributable to the pharmaceutical companies, including things like medical error, hospital errors and hospital malnutrition.

Authoritarian Vaccine War Greets Back To School Parents Worldwide

With the first week of official back to school beginning for many parents, the polarizing vaccine debate is back center-stage. But this year, the stakes are higher. Over the course of the past year, many countries around the world have taken harsh stances against those parents who seek vaccine choice rights. Egregious laws have been passed forcing both parent and school alike to comply or suffer financial consequences. The new vaccine landscape is more authoritarian than ever and it doesn’t appear it will come up for air anytime soon. Here’s a world roundup of vaccine noncompliance aggression.

Italy’s parliament recently passed a law that forces parents to give their children 10 mandatory vaccines. This law effects kids up to 16 years of age. Any non-compliance results in $600 fine (or Euro equivalent). (Click to Site)
