Weather patterns are becoming increasingly erratic and the ground under our feet is becoming extremely unstable. So precisely what in the world is going on here? Is this the beginning of a trend? Could it be possible that we are entering the worst period for natural disasters in U.S. history? The tornado that just hit the town of Moore, Oklahoma is already being called one of the most destructive tornadoes [...]
A Norwegian resistance fighter who led a daring raid to sabotage Nazi Germany’s atomic bomb program during World War II has been honoured at a London ceremony.
Joachim Roenneberg led a six-man team for Operation Gunnerside, an attack on the Norsk Hydro heavy water production plant in Vermok, Norway.
The operation, in early 1943, destroyed the plant’s supplies of heavy water, which the Nazis hoped to use to produce nuclear weapons.
An earlier [...]
A popular Ohio air show has canceled a re-enactment of a World War II atomic bomb attack on Japan after an online petition was posted in protest.
Bank of America says the gold crash since Friday has already discounted sales of the entire Cypriot, Portuguese and Greek gold reserves combined. “As we believe additional gold selling in the European periphery is highly unlikely, we find it hard to fully justify the sell-off,” it said.
The Fed assault began in February when it published a paper warning that the longer quantitative easing continues, the harder it will be for [...]

Super-EMP Warhead–Nation Killer
The Obama administration and its allies in the press also want us to believe that North Korea’s current “nuclear devices” are not a real threat because of their low explosive yield, only a few kilotons. Supposedly, North Korea after 20 years and three nuclear tests is still struggling to make a crude first generation atomic bomb.
In fact, almost certainly, North Korea now possesses a highly advanced third generation [...]
The giant cumulonimbus—which spanned several miles—was accompanied by lightning, swallowing up the capital’s skyline for an hour,according to the Daily Mail.
Photographers and videographers captured images of Thursday’s ominous-looking formation, which “gradually took the shape of an explosion from an atomic bomb.”
According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, a giant cumulonimbus is a thunderstorm cloud that forms from a towering cumulus, which “resembles the head of a cauliflower.”
Here’s some video of the [...]

It has been more than a year now since the massive 9.0-plus magnitude earthquake and corresponding tsunami devastated the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on the eastern coast of Japan, sending untold amounts of nuclear radiation into the environment. And to this day, the threat of nuclear fallout is ever-present all around the world in what some have described as a “nuclear war without a [...]
A private door opens from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office in central Jerusalem directly into a long, modestly furnished, half-paneled room decorated with modern paintings by Israeli artists and a copy of Israel’s 1948 declaration of independence. It contains little more than a long wooden table, brown leather chairs and a single old-fashioned white projector screen.
This inner sanctum at the end of a corridor between Netanyahu’s private room and [...]
AFP - IMF chief Christine Lagarde warned Tuesday that crude oil prices may spike by up to 30 percent if Iranian supplies were disrupted, causing “serious consequences” for the global economy.
The standoff between Iran, the world’s second-largest supplier of oil, and the West over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program is seen as a flashpoint that could sharply increase world crude prices.
“Clearly it would be a shock to economies if there was [...]
Iran insists it is only seeking a peaceful energy supply, while the West suspects Tehran is building an atomic bomb. And yet, some believe it is all about the oil. Again.
Conn Hallinan, a columnist at the Foreign Policy in Focus magazine, says the West’s concern over Iran’s nuclear program is merely a pretext to take control of its vast energy resources.
“I think the nuclear bomb is really in many ways [...]
Impact Would Be As Big As Siberian Tunguska Event; 1000 Times More Powerful Than Hiroshima
Monday, March 5, 2012
In the history of the solar system, and even in human history, there are clear records of extraordinary and devastating catastrophes… On the landscapes of other planets, where the records of the past are better preserved, there is abundant evidence of major catastrophes. It’s all a matter of time scales. An event which is [...]
(Reuters) – Vladimir Putin praised Cold War-era scientists on Thursday for stealing U.S. nuclear secrets so that United States would not be the world’s sole atomic power, in comments reflecting his vision of Russia as a counterweight to U.S. power.
Spies with suitcases full of data helped the Soviet Union build its atomic bomb, he told military commanders.
“You know, when the States already had nuclear weapons and the Soviet Union was only building [...]
Cuban revolutionary icon Fidel Castro said Monday that a “robot” would be better in the White House than President Barack Obama — or any of the Republicans candidates in the 2012 election race.
“Is it not obvious that the worst of all is the absence in the White House of a robot capable of governing the United States and preventing a war that would end the life of our species?” Castro, 85, wrote [...]

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Closing off the Gulf to oil tankers will be “easier than drinking a glass of water” for Iran if the Islamic state deems it necessary, state television reported on Wednesday, ratcheting up fears over the world’s most important oil chokepoint.
“Closing the Strait of Hormuz for Iran’s armed forces is really easy … or as Iranians say it will be easier than drinking a [...]

The United States has used tactical nuclear weapons in its military campaign against Iraq and Afghanistan, a Middle East expert tells Press TV.
“Tactical nuclear weapons were used, at least one in Iraq and several were used in Afghanistan –in the Tora Bora mountains,” Peter Eyre, a Middle East consultant, said.
Eyre pointed out that the atomic bomb dropped on Afghanistan’s Tora Bora region was so powerful that it actually [...]
The head of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said on Tuesday that Iran would start a ‘street war’ in Tel Aviv if its nuclear program was attacked.
“Israel is not big enough to launch a military strike on Iran, but if it takes such a foolish decision, the Iranian military will fight with the Zionist soldiers in Tel Aviv streets… and will force them out of the Palestinian soil,” [...]
(Reuters) – The U.N. nuclear watchdog is expected this week to issue its most detailed report yet on research in Iran seen as geared to developing atomic bombs, heightening international suspicions of Tehran’s agenda and stoking Middle East tensions.
Western powers are likely to seize on the International Atomic Energy Agency document, which has been preceded by media speculation in Israel of military strikes against Iranian nuclear sites, to press for more [...]

The wildfire that surrounds the nuclear lab in Los Alamos, New Mexico, has grown to at least 61,000 acres amid mounting concerns about what might be in the smoke that’s visible from space.
Such fear has prompted the Environmental Protection Agency to bring in air monitors, along with a special airplane that checks for radiation levels. So far officials have not been able to find anything.
“Our facilities and nuclear [...]
LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — A wildfire near the desert birthplace of the atomic bomb advanced on the Los Alamos laboratory and thousands of outdoor drums of plutonium-contaminated waste Tuesday as authorities stepped up efforts to protect the site and monitor the air for radiation.
Officials at the nation’s premier nuclear-weapons lab gave assurances that dangerous materials were safely stored and capable of withstanding [...]
A large wildfire moving across northern New Mexico Tuesday had authorities watching for a potential release of radiation around the nation’s main nuclear-weapons lab in Los Alamos.
The fire, covering some 60,740 acres, was headed north toward the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the nuclear-research facility that sprawls across 36 square miles and contains 2,000 buildings. The complex, where scientists working on the Manhattan Project developed [...]

Fukushima radioactive fallout nears Chernobyl levels
17:14 24 March 2011 by Debora MacKenzie
Japan’s damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima has been emitting radioactive iodine and caesium at levels approaching those seen in the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Austrian researchers have used a worldwide network of radiation detectors – designed to spot clandestine nuclear bomb tests – to show that iodine-131 is being released at [...]
