We've only just begun: Fukushima groundwater now flowing into the ocean

If the latest worldwide fish kills have anything to do with increased radiation in the seas, get ready for a big cull coming.. The operator of Japan's Fukushima plant--you know, that place worldwide media has systematically ignored since the March 2011 superquake--says that the destroyed plant has begun released radioactive ground water into the Pacific Ocean..

The goal: Rid the site of the immense amount of radioactive waste actually at the site.

Various accounts have painted a troubling picture since the nuke plant went haywire from the tsunami.. TEPCO has been facing the mounting problems of contaminated water. Their solution has is to get rid of it.. but since we live on a relatively tiny little blue planet of land and water, TEPCO's choice was to just "release it" into the ocean..

They are defending their actions of course, by saying that the release is within legal limits and that it's 'safe' in that sense..

But news accounts from Japan have painted a worsening picture of the situation near the Fukushima plant--and also one that makes the 'safe' claim by TEPCO be questioned..

One such report is a problem that will obviously be denied by the nuke industry in Japan: Reports that all workers--up  to 90% of them--fled the Fukushima plant after the initial meltdown in 2011.
There have been various other reports of safety problems, mutations, and general dangers of the Fukushima area over the past several months..

With the ground water release beginning, one important aspect to remember throughout the process is this: It's just beginning.

Another fact: Fukushima released up to 181 quadrillion bq of cesium. Chernobyl was only 105.  And this: The release will be for years to come.


Couple that with the now tainted and to be tainted Pacific Radiation Rim, and you can see why that Fukushima worker pointing his finger at the world was so mysterious, alarming, and predictive. It's our problem now.. The world's problem.. it's not just confined to one destroyed nuke plant.. and certainly not to one ocean.. It's the world's problem. And no one is doing much to deal with it.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
