I remember when I started this blog in late spring I was going to write about some bubbles surfacing in a bayou that were being reported in Louisiana. Also reported: tremors, shifting houses, and the smell of rotten eggs.  In the summer of 2012 a giant a sinkhole opened up swallowing 1500 square feet of earth in Assumption Parish.  Residents around the area were evacuated.  Texas Brine, LLC seems to have punctured the Napoleonville salt dome and it is now collapsing. The company may have also stored radioactive waste in the area in the 1990s illegally.  High levels of radium were detected.  Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide are also detected.  Texas Brine, a Houston based oil and gas company has burned off 2.7 million cubic feet of gas so far..   It is December 14 and the hole has grown to 348,481 square feet or about 8 football fields.  In late November the ever growing sinkhole let out a “burp”, a burp of crude oil, brine, fracking liquid and other waste. The water rose and then the bubbling stopped briefly as the hole had been plugged with trees and plants it had swallowed.  Texas Brine has removed 6732 barrels of oil from the sinkhole with no end in site.   A few days into December the bubbling started again.

Residents that were allowed to stay in the area are suffering from ill health (especially children) and the aquifer can no longer be used as a water supply as it is contaminated.  With methane underground very close to the surface it is a ticking time bomb.

The fear that the sinkhole could explode is great.  If Texas Brine, LLC punctured the bottom of the dome into “The Big Hum”, an oil and gas bearing formation that is thousands of feet deep, it poses an even greater hazard.  Texas Brine has been fined by the government, but they still aren’t sure what to do to stop this disaster.  If an explosion occurred, it would be very, very large and very toxic.  There is radioactive waste in there too remember…

There have been numerous and unusual tremors in Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Missouri, in recent weeks and they seem to be increasing.  Even stranger, there have been gas explosions all over the country and mysterious loud booms reported too.   The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is believed to be still leaking.

If you haven’t heard of these events, its not a surprise. Mainstream media is not reporting them and search engines could be filtering (censoring) search results. A media blackout has happened and the result could be the loss of many lives and the contamination of ????? area.

What’s Going on at Fukushima?


One site is reporting explosions and fire at Fukushima nuclear plant.   Others are claiming this is a hoax.

Forcing You Back Onto the Grid.


Image

In the United States, we do not own the property we live on, even if it is already paid off.  In essence, we are just renting it from the government.

The government has had, for some time now “Nuisance Abatement Teams”, or law enforcement officers which check to see if building code, fire code, etc are up to date.  They enforce city ordinances like vehicle forfeiture, graffiti protection…

But recently, with the all of the people that wish to live self sustaining life styles, the government has broadened their search for offenders of ordinances.  With several million people living “off the grid” or growing their own food, producing their own electricity, and not having to rely on the government or other companies for all their needs, the law enforcement officers have been ordered to bring these people back to the system.   Most of these people abide by the laws.  The government is citing these people for ridiculous reasons such as “bothering the neighbors” or “code violations”, such as growing food within the city limits… but some of these people live far from the city!   For instance if you grow a food garden, they can cut your garden down or make you get a food safety permit and inspectors from the government come to your property and make sure everything is done “right”.  The definition of right is open to interpretation.  If you are growing organically they could shut you down.  At the best, they have a record of what you grow and how much you grow.  In some areas they are forcing people off their land entirely!!!  There are anti hoarding laws as well. In a time of “emergency” either real or fabricated, the government can take away your food and supplies if you have more than 30 days for each person in a household. The government will then “redistribute” them to ?????   Federal Agents already want lists of Mormon‘s that store food.

The government can also have you detained and sent to a psychiatric facility if they think you are mentally ill..crazy for wanting to grow food that is not processed, laden with sugar and salt, genetically modified or sprayed with who knows what.

FEMA recommends keeping only 3 days worth of essential supplies per person on hand at any time.  According to the Department of Homeland Security, you might be a terrorist if you have 7+ days of food storage per person in your home.  Seven days is not very much.

Ways of monitoring you: Facial recognition software, food “discount” cards, memberships to wholesale stores (sams club, costco, etc.), your mail (remember the government comes to your home 6 days a week), vehicle i.d. tags (rfid and other types), credit/debit cards, your smartphone, the internet, drones, satellites….

Here is one story that is very disturbing:

A Tulsa woman is suing the city’s code enforcement officers after she said they cut down her garden with no cause.

Denise Morrison said she has more than 100 plant varieties in her front and back yards and all of them are edible and have a purpose.

She knows which ones will treat arthritis, which will make your food spicy, which ones keep mosquitoes away and treat bug bites, but she said none of that matter to city inspectors.

Last August, Morrison’s front and back yards were filled with flowers in bloom, lemon, stevia, garlic chives, grapes, strawberries, apple mint, spearmint, peppermint, an apple tree, walnut tree, pecan trees and much more.

“I came back three days later, sat in my driveway, cried and left,” Morrison said.

If you are storing food for emergency or growing your own food garden don’t advertise it.

Independence is frowned upon America.  The want to monitor us all of the time…they made us nearly prisoners…and many didn’t or still don’t know it.  This isn’t freedom we have.  Don’t fool yourself.  Everything we do is guided.  Should you be able to walk to the store at 3 a.m.?  Absolutely!  It might not be the smartest thing in the world because you could be kidnapped, attacked,  hit by a car that didn’t see you or worse harassed and arrested…for ?????

Meteor Shower Grounds Aircraft in Colorado?!


Image

On Wednesday June 20, 2012 (at conflicting times), reports came in that suggested a meteor shower, fireball or meteorite had landed.  This temporarily grounded 4 firefighting aircraft in Colorado  fighting the Springer fire, west of Colorado Springs.  Reports also came in from Kansas at almost the same time.  The FAA has not confirmed any reports or said anything out of the ordinary happened…

This is strange as their are reports from different areas, but no official confirmation of anything has been made, links are gone from the internet and the reports vary

Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) Update 2 Media Blackout


Image

Typhoon Guchol is speeding towards Japan and hitting it within 24 hours.  As of today, the storm has 120 mph winds and would be classified as a category 3 hurricane in the atlantic ocean. The typhoon‘s eye has filled in and it is showing signs of slowing down and weakening.  16 inches of rain are expected in Japan as the typhoon moves northeast.   West of Tokyo, they expect mudslides and flooding.   There is a huge media blackout on the topic of this typhoon and the danger it poses when combined with the nuclear disaster in Fukushima that occured in early 2011.  A couple of days ago when I wrote my other post on this issue, as I researched the internet, links that I had visited minutes before were disappearing.  I checked my history and some of them still worked, but were not being indexed by Google.

The next 36 hours are critical! The forecast says that the typhoon will pass far west of Fukushima.  You can watch the wind change direction as the typhoon moves across Japan. (This also shows the danger zone Fukushima).  Note how the winds blow east over Japan then how the jetstream takes the air right over the radioactivity westward.  http://www.kachelmannwetter.de/japan/japan.html

Super Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) Update 1


Image

Butchoy has now become the season’s first “super typhoon” or that equal to a category 5 hurricane.  It is expected to miss the philippines, but officials warned of a storm surge.

As Butchoy advances north, it may hit Okinawa Japan the evening of June 17.  It is expected to be a category 1 storm by the time it reaches Tokyo and Fukushima prefecture, where it is expected to make landfall.  While the downgrade in strength of the storm is good, it also means that Butchoy will be moving slower, dropping large amounts of water at the damaged reactors.  Typhoon Butchoy (Guchol) could hammer the eastern seaboard until Thursday June 22.

Typhoon Guchol and Further Disaster at Fukushima Possible


Image

This could be potentially very devastating for the northern hemisphere.  Fukushima’s damaged reactor and waste pools are still leaking, if this typhoon hits, most likely it will be damaged further, perhaps destroyed completely, leaking out the rest of the radiactive materials into the air and pacific ocean. Maybe its time to go to the southern hemisphere.

Powerful Typhoon GUCHOL (BUTCHOY) has strengthened rapidly into a dangerous 220-km/hr howler…likely to become the 1st Super Typhoon of 2012. Thick Monsoon Rainclouds approaching Western Luzon including Metro Manila and Mindoro (philippines)

GUCHOL (BUTCHOY) will enhance the Southwest Monsoon (aka. Habagat) across Visayas & Luzon particularly the western sections tonight until Tuesday. Breezy to windy conditions & cloudy skies w/ occasional to widespread rains, thunderstorms & squalls will be expected. The seas along the coastal areas along the West Philippine and Visayan Sea will become moderate to rough & dangerous.

Residents and visitors along the East Coast of the Philippines and the Southern Islands of Japan, particularly Okinawa and Ryukyu should closely monitor the progress of GUCHOL (BUTCHOY).

Do not use this for life or death decision. This advisory is intended for additional information purposes only. Kindly refer to your country’s official weather agency for local warnings, advisories & bulletins.

The following Consequences are identified for a Loss of Spent Fuel Pool Level:

* risk of a fire in fuel pool number 4 is real, and that the risks of contamination are so severe that an international effort is required.

* a nominal release of 10% of the SFP 4 inventory of cesium and strontium would represent 3-10 times the March 2011 release amounts

Spent fuel pools are not protected in the same way as reactor cores, and the unit 4 building is seriously damaged

* the fuel rods currently produce about one megawatt (MVV) or more of waste energy in the form of heat (1,000,000 Watts!)

* If cooling water for the spent fuel pool is lost – either by collapse of the pool, formation of cracks in the pool, or other factors – a major release of radioactive material could result. Given the large amount of heat generated by the fuel rods, the temperature would rise quickly. These rods are surrounded by zirconium cladding, and at high temperatures, this cladding catalyzes hydrogen production, can generate additional heat, and even explode and burn (NRC, 2006).

* The water surrounding the fuel rods in the spent fuel pools serves two purposes: First, it conducts heat away from the fuel assemblies to avoid overheating. Second, it provides shielding from the extremely high radiation levels near the rods.

* loss of shielding by the cooling water could critically increase radiation levels in the entire Daiichi complex. High radiation is already a serious problem limiting worker and even robot access to the plant to perform repairs and mitigation, and to maintain cooling of the other spent fuel pools and reactors. Thus, a catastrophic failure of the unit 4 spent fuel pool could potentially cascade into additional releases from the other spent fuel pools and reactors.
