In the most seismicly active region on Earth; fresh tremors promise eruptions setting new standards for the term, “cataclysmic”. We really are pushing into new frontiers, where numbers quantifying the menace at Fukushima seem more suited for cosmology.
“Patriotism” is the last resort of scoundrels.
Came to mind the other day that I should be supporting Willard, as it would hasten our inevitable devolution into autonomous perhaps even fully independent region-states centered on economic, environmental and cultural commons – Nine Nations of North America. Whatever good Obama might be able to do prolongs the agony, leaving the inevitable even more complicated and potentially explosive.
Physics is everything, everything is physics – a perpetual motion machine is bound to fail, a beast cannot feed upon itself indefinitely. The inevitability is statistical. Not only has the “population” grown so but the population of variables both within and without the “population” has grown so large, so diverse, and across so much territory it has reached a point of statistical saturation, the “model” unsustainable. It has to change, it has to collapse, that’s its “nature”. Hyper-inflation breeds hyper-deflation, hyper-evolution breeds hyper-devolution, the longer it takes, the ever more hollowed out the machine becomes breeds the ever greater failure.
For those who think there may be more to this than meets the eye:
Classic case of shooting ourselves in the foot – the stuxnet virus was designed and released into the wild by the Jews and the CIA to attack Iran’s critical energy infrastructure but once in the wild attacked all foreign energy infrastructure leaving Fukushima vulnerable enough that when the physical structure failed the virus shut down the system which then released the as yet unreported massive radioactive fallout now bombarding Cascadia. The Jews are not America’s friends.
BOOTHBAY, Maine — Phytoplankton. If the mention of the tiny plant organisms that permeate the world’s oceans isn’t enough to pique your interest, consider this: They produce the oxygen in every other breath you take.
Still not interested? This is where it’s hard not to take notice. In 2007, the reproduction rate of phytoplankton in the Gulf of Maine decreased suddenly by afactor of five — what used to take a day now takes five — and according to a recently released study by the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in Boothbay, it hasn’t bounced back.
So what does it mean? According to Barney Balch, the lab’s senior research scientist and lead author of the study, such a change in organisms at the bottom of the planetary food chain and at the top of planetary oxygen production could have disastrous consequences for virtually every species on Earth, from lobsters and fish that fuel Maine’s marine industries to your grandchildren. But the 12-year Bigelow study focused only on the Gulf of Maine, which leads to the question, will it spread?
“I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to know that if you shut down the base of the marine food web, the results won’t be positive,” said Balch.
Balch said the study, which was published recently in the Marine Ecology Progress Series, provides one of the strongest links to date between increases in rainfall and temperature over the years and the Gulf of Maine’s ecosystem. Key factors in the study’s conclusions were driven by 100 years of records on rainfall and river discharge, both of which have increased by between 13 and 20 percent over the past century.
You stupid reich-wing retards are killing the rest of us, and our grand-children. I’m thinking a little “self-defense” is in order – maybe a little Stand Your Ground.
And here in the US:
“Scientists Fear Entire Ocean Affected”: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared a recent rash of seal deaths to be an “unusual mortality event” on Tuesday. More than 60 seals have died and 75 found diseased in Alaska with skin sores and patchy hair loss. The Fish and Wildlife Service has also identified diseased and dead walruses. A similar official declaration for Pacific Walrus in Alaska is pending. The walruses have suffered from similar symptoms, which have also included labored breathing and appearing lethargic. Scientists have yet to identify a cause for this disease, but tests have indicated that it is not a virus.
A huge dock torn from a Japanese port by the 2011 tsunami has washed up 8,050km (5,000 miles) away on the US West Coast after crossing the Pacific.
The 165-tonne structure made of concrete, metal and tyres, and studded with starfish and barnacles, arrived on a beach south-west of Portland, Oregon.
It has tested negative for radiation, but scientists say a host of invasive marine species may have hitched a ride.
Police are guarding the dock while officials decide what to do with it.
A plaque on the 20m-long (66ft) structure, which was first mistaken for a barge, shows it came from the port of Misawa in northern Japan.
It has taken 15 months to drift across the Pacific to Agate beach since the earthquake and resulting tsunami shook it loose. Two other docks from the same port are still missing.
The structure is one of a number of items that have washed up on north American shores. Experts expect a surge of debris in the coming months, with the bulk of it due in the winter.
The senior senator for Oregon, Ron Wyden, has asked the body tracking the debris to redouble its efforts saying something as big as a dock could pose a danger to ships at sea.
