[...] Recently, large quantities of radioactive materials were released to the atmosphere and coastal waters following a nuclear accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant (NPP), which increased 137Cs concentrations in coastal seawater off Fukushima up to eight orders of magnitude above the global fallout background [...]
[...] the results presented in this paper shows that the measured 137Cs concentrations in surface waters ranged from 1.8mBq L−1 to 3500mBq L−1, [...]
THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED; IT MEANS GOLD CAN BE SEPARATED FROM ANYTHING….BAD MINERALIZED MIXES, OR SIMPLE SEAWATER
If Fritz Haber were alive today, he’d undoubtedly be scrambling to get his hands on some delftibactin, the molecule pictured above. Haber won the 1918 Nobel Prize in chemistry for inventing the process for converting the ultrastable form of nitrogen in the air to the more reactive chemical form required to make fertilizer. He then [...]
Don’t live anywhere near the path of Hurricane Sandy? Figure you dodged The Bullet? Maybe, but most likely not. Sandy has taken out key and vital infrastructure especially New Jersey shipping ports, trucking terminals and refining infrastructure. Not like the tonnage and container cargoes processed there will easily be diverted elsewhere on the Atlantic Seaboard. What’s the nautical steaming distance to New Orleans or Houston? About 2,000 miles? Not much [...]
Floods and fires, seawater surges and electrical outages, fierce rains and lashing winds continued to pummel parts of the Northeast as Sandy continued its destructive march on Tuesday.
From Chicago to the Atlantic Ocean, through major cities including New York, Philadelphia and Washington, the impact of the storm continued to grow. Transportation systems in New York and New Jersey were crippled. More than 16,000 airlines flights have been canceled.
Sandy continued to generate [...]
And Sandy hasn’t even made landfall yet! sure hope people have done what they could to batten down the hatches.
NEW YORK (WABC) – Hurricane Sandy brought rain, violent wind and a massive storm surge that flooded shore towns, washing away a section of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, and threatening to cripple Wall Street and New York City’s subway system with a huge surge of corrosive seawater.
By midday, the storm was picking [...]

Stomach bugs are being caused by a new bacteria group that has emerged in northern Europe due to manmade climate change, according to researchers.
A paper written by a group of international experts offers some of the first firm evidence that the warming patterns of the Baltic Sea have coincided with the emergence of Vibrio infections in the north of the continent.
Vibrios is a group of bacteria which usually grow in [...]

Collapse of spent fuel storage pool at Fukushima Daiichi could be worse than initial accident, says new report
A collapse of the already tilting reactor No 4 building at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, ¬atop which sits a spent nuclear fuel storage pool containing 1,535 fuel assemblies – including 204 unused ones – would lead to a “significant global impact,”– by [...]
The Crystal Lagoon at San Alfonso del Mar resort, Chile, is large enough for sailing and comes with its own fake beach
At the San Alfonso del Mar resort in Chile, a quick dip could well turn into a marathon.
Swimming a length in this, the world’s largest outdoor pool, would mean stroke after stroke for more than three fifths of a mile – that’s 20 Olympic-size swimming pools.
The enormous man-made lagoon [...]
Scientists funded by the U.S. Navy have developed a robot “jellyfish” — a foot-long submarine that runs on seawater and could be used on spy missions.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallasand Virginia Tech created the submarine drone, dubbed “Robojelly,” which is powered by hydrogen and oxygen in the water through which it sails.
The scientists, funded by the Office of Naval Research, reported their findings this week in the academic journal, “Smart Materials and Structures.”
From Zero Hedge:
A few days after the one year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster, nobody talks about it anymore. After all it’s “fixed”, and if it isn’t, the Fed will fix it. Remember in the New Normal nothing bad is allowed the happen. So for those who have forgotten, here is a reminder.

An engineer, a biologist and an economist are washed ashore on a desert island. After a few days without food they are starving. Eventually, they stumble on a can of beans on the beach.
They spend a few minutes considering how they might feed themselves. The engineer is the first [...]
