environment/endangered species: California Blue Whale Makes a Comeback


California Blue Whale Makes a Comeback

Once teetering on the brink of extinction, the California blue whale has recovered in an unprecedented way—reaching about 97 percent of historic population levels. Researchers estimate that there are now 2,200 of these whales in existence. It is the only population of blue whale known to have rebounded from the ravages of whaling. The blue whale is the largest known animal on Earth, growing to nearly 100 feet (30 meters) in length and weighing in at 190 tons (172 tonnes), twice as much as the largest known dinosaur.

Asbestos

Nowadays, the idea of being exposed to asbestos strikes fear in the hearts of most. But just a couple of generations ago, people embraced asbestos-containing materials for their fire-and corrosion-resistant properties. Asbestos—a product obtained from a family of fibrous hydrated silicates—was used in fireproofing, electrical insulation, and various other building materials as well as safety apparel, brake pads, and countless other products. When was it discovered to be a serious health hazardMore… Discuss

In this short scene from our feature documentary, LIBBY, MONTANA, three former WR Grace employees talk about what it was like to work for the company in Libby. Les Skramstad worked in the mill only two years, but died of mesothelioma in 2007. Bob Wilkins was the local union rep for mine workers. He died of asbestos related disease in 2002. Dru Carr and I shot the interviews with Les and Bob in 2000. Earl Lovick was the plant manager for many years. His commentary here is from a videotaped deposition recorded during a civil case against WR Grace in the 1990s. Lovick died in 1996.

GLOBAL BIOMASS


Global Biomass

Biomass is the total amount of living organisms in a given area, expressed in terms of living weight per unit area. It can include microorganisms, plants, and animals. An amazing amount of biomass is created by the approximately 10 quintillion insects living at any one time. In fact, the almost one million known insect species comprise 300 times the total weight of Earth’s human population. What other single class of organisms makes up a staggering 25% of the global biomass? More… Discuss

THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: SOVIET SATELLITE BREAKS UP UPON REENTRY, SCATTERING NUCLEAR DEBRIS (1978)


Soviet Satellite Breaks Up upon Reentry, Scattering Nuclear Debris (1978)

Cosmos 954 was a Soviet reconnaissance satellite that used radar to observe ocean traffic. It was launched in September 1977 and quickly began to experience problems. Within months, it had deviated from its designed orbit. A malfunction prevented the safe separation of its onboard nuclear reactor, so when the satellite reentered the Earth’s atmosphere, it scattered radioactive debris over northern Canada, necessitating an extensive clean-up operation. How much did Canada bill the USSR for this? More… Discuss

AMAZONIA: LAST CALL (The lungs of the Planet are getting to small for the Planet’s survival)



Ep. 3.THE VOICE OF THE JUNGLE: The protection of Indian cultures, headed by Sidney Pssuelo. This series travels across Brazilian landscapes by way of one of the main links still binding the essence of humanity with the Earth: the Amazon. The filming of the first point of contact with an isolated race, the Zos, the encroachment on areas of the Amazonian forest previously uncaptured on film, the evidence relating to the development of the illegal trafficking of species or the recording of the immeasurable value of Brazil’s natural spaces; these are just excerpts from the series. The underlying theme is the conflict between the development and conservation of one of the key natural areas underpinning the stability of the planet.

Molasses Spill Chokes Hawaii Harbor

Unfortunately, we know all too well the damage an oil spill can do to an ecosystem, but how about molasses? The sweet, sticky stuff used in cookies, candies, and other tasty treats has caused an environmental disaster in Honolulu Harbor. A massive spill from a molasses pipeline earlier this month sent hundreds of thousands of gallons of the heavy syrup into the harbor’s waters, killing thousands of fish. Unlike oil, molasses sinks in water, and experts have no way of removing molasses once it has been spilled. The full impact of the spill on marine life will not be known for some time. More… Discuss

The Frog that Hears with Its Mouth

The tiny Gardiner’s frog has no middle ear or eardrumand therefore, scientists assumed, no way to amplify and transmit sound waves to the inner ear, rendering it effectively deaf. But if this were the case, researchers wondered, why would these creatures make audible noises, and, for that matter, why would they respond to one another’s calls? It turns out that these fingernail-sized amphibians use their mouths to amplify sound in much the same way that the body of a guitar does, and this sound is then conducted by tissue and bone to the inner ear. More… Discuss

What you can’t see can be deadly: virtually invisible, yet absolutely lethal asbestos fibers lead to environmental and occupational diseases that claim the lives of 30 Americans every day.

The time is now for the Senate to draft and pass meaningful legislation to overhaul the outdated and ineffective Toxic Substances Control Act  of 1976 and protect children from asbestos and dangerous toxic chemicals such as bisphenol A, an endocrine-disrupting chemical in some plastics and food can linings, and flame retardants infused into car seats, nap pads and other kid goods.

 

MEASLES-LIKE VIRUS LIKELY BEHIND DOLPHIN DEATHS

FIRST CASE OF PERSON-TO-PERSON H7N9 TRANSMISSION



FIRST CASE OF PERSON-TO-PERSON H7N9 TRANSMISSION
In February, the H7N9 strain of bird flu was first detected in humans. Since then, at least 133 people in China and Taiwan have been infected with the virus, and 43 have died as a result. Until now, concerns over a possible pandemic have remained relatively low, since all of the cases appeared to have beentransmitted via contact with infected poultry. However, researchers now believe that a 32-year-old woman who died in April contracted the illness from her father, marking the first known instance of person-to-person transmission of this virus. The virus is still unable to pass efficiently between people, so the pandemic risk, though higher than before, remains low.More… Discuss

TOKYO – Highly radioactive water seeping into the ocean from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is creating an “emergency” that the operator is struggling to contain, an official from the country’s nuclear watchdog said on Monday.

This contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier, is rising toward the surface and is exceeding legal limits of radioactive discharge, Shinji Kinjo, head of a Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) task force, told Reuters.

CLIMATE CHANGE LINKED TO GLOBAL VIOLENCE


Climate Change Linked to Global Violence

A team of US researchers has found a strong correlation between changes in climate and violence around the globe. Warmer temperatures and changes in rainfallwere linked to increases in assaults, rapes, murders, group conflicts, and even wars. The researchers believe that climate change actually drives up the level of human conflict and suggest a couple of possible explanations for this. Economics, they say, could play a role, as climate change can affect economic conditions that then influence individuals’ decision-making. Physiology could also be involved, as studies indicate that heat makes people prone to aggression. More… Discuss

Toxicodendron diversilobum, western poison oak or Pacific poison oak (syn. Rhus diversiloba) is in the Anacardiaceae family (the sumac family) and is a plant best known for its ability to cause allergic rashes and itching after contact. Western poison oak is found only on the Pacific Coast of the United States and of Canada.

It is extremely common in that region, where it is the predominant species of the genus; the closely related Atlantic poison oak (T. pubescens) occurs on the Atlantic Coast.

Rick Santelli & EU Insider Discuss Bilderberg Plot To Make EU Into Totalitarian Superstate

“These two meetings are going to be important because of what [the media] will say – is it a lot of jaw-jaw and everything will get worse? Or maybe it’s the beginning of a realisation that the world will no longer be the same and we are going to do something about it.”

A meeting in June in Europe of the Bilderberg Group – an informal club of leading politicians, businessmen and thinkers chaired by Mr. Davignon – could also “improve understanding” on future action, in the same way it helped create the euro in the 1990s, he said. 

http://wlstorage.net/file/bilderberg-…

“While members of the group held different views as to the method by which a common market could be set up, there was a general recognition of the dangers inherent in the present divided markets of Europe and the pressing need to bring the German people, together with the other peoples of Europe, into a common market. That the six countries of the Coal and Steel Community had definitely decided to establish a common market and that experts were now working this out was felt to be a most encouraging step forward and it was hoped that other countries would subsequently join it. The need was generally accepted to press forward with functional integration in the economic domain particularly with regard to the industrial utilization of atomic energy.

It was generally recognized that it is our common responsibility to arrive in the shortest possible time at the highest degree of integration, beginning with a common European market. It was also generally agreed that the tariff walls surrounding this common market should certainly not be higher and should possibly be lower than the average of the existing tariffs now applied by the individual countries concerned. “

Bilderberg Has Press Thrown Out Of Hotel


Published on Jun 1, 2013

The Bilderberg Group ordered a hotel at which journalists from Infowars were set to stay to cover the organization’s secretive confab next week to cancel the reservations in an unprecedented attempt to block freedom of the press.

Alex Jones and his reporters all received phone calls from the Grove Hotel in Watford, England today informing them that their reservations — which ran until the day before Bilderberg are set to meet in the same location — had been cancelled.

The manager of the hotel informed us that due to “consultations with the security services” in preparation for a big conference taking place next week, all the rooms had been cancelled.

When asked if Jones and his crew were considered a “security risk,” the hotel manager responded “I’m not implying that,” suggesting that the rooms were cancelled simply because Bilderberg ordered the Grove to do so.

To be clear, Infowars reporters had not attempted to book rooms during the Bilderberg conference, this was days before the Bilderberg conference, and yet the rooms were still cancelled.http://www.infowars.com/bilderberg-ca…
