Awareness isn't always pleasant!

Ragnar didn't encounter Rearden in order to hand him Federal Reserve Notes, rather a bar of solid gold.

With virtually all the countries which have central banks printing huge amounts of their own currency in the form of fiat paper, including the United States, it is not hard to grasp that the purchasing power of the "dollar" is on the verge of collapse.

The official national debt is over 18 trillion dollars but that is a fiction because it doesn't take into account the enormous cost of promises made to the baby boom cohort which is entering retirement and becomes eligible for Medicare and Social Security retirement payments at the rate of 10,000 new recipients every single day. Economist Lawrence Kotlikoff estimates that the actual national debt is 240 trillion dollars!

Will that simply be printed in order to avoid bankruptcy? What will that do to the cost of living given that industrial production has decreased for five months in a row now!

Billionaire Eric Sprott expressed his concerns in the latest King world News interview about the prospects of failures in the banking system as people lose confidence in the banks and begin to withdraw funds from them if they still can. Remember the trouble Germany had getting the gold it had put overseas into the vaults of the London central banks for safe keeping and was told it might take seven years to have it returned in full.

There are predictions of a lengthy depression extending for a couple of decades before us due to the profligacy of the governments.

On the other hand, you hardly ever hear any news about the status of the nuclear power plants destroyed in a huge earthquake in Fukushima Japan a few years ago. Unless you are interested in being kept abreast of the toll on sea life in the Pacific Ocean as hundreds of tons of nuclear waste are released each and every day. http://fukushima-diary.com

Can humanity survive with the Pacific Ocean becoming lifeless due to the nuclear contamination likely to continue for "a long time." The technology to decommission the plants which melted down does not exist and the leakage will continue into the Pacific.

Extinction may be facing humanity and all living things on the planet in which case we better hurry finding our way to another place to live in the galaxy.

Have a nice day.

If you take a hundred tons of water and inject an ounce of nuclear waste into it and in turn inject the whole into the ocean, have you just injected 100 tons and one ounce of nuclear waste into the ocean?

Galt, please learn the principle of dilution and why the Pacific ocean as such is not capable of being turned into a lifeless body of water no matter how much contamination by that destroyed nuclear plant--or a hundred of such plants--the ocean is way too big and water is much denser than the atmosphere's gasses so it can take exponentially more abuse

environmental hysterics take the conclusions of their imaginations run wild and go looking for any data that seemingly supports them no matter how spurious and call it "science" and never with any cautions and caveats or any other expressions of modesty

IF I believed that wishes or prayers could come true, I would welcome your comments. However, I don't think that there is a safe or innocuous amount of radioactive material so no matter how much one dilutes the incalculable amount of deadly such material which has been pouring into the Pacific Ocean every day for four plus years, you certainly will end up with a lifeless sea.

"5 Billion Bq of Strontium-90 flows to the Pacific on the daily basis in 2014. Tepco announced in the press conference of 8/25/2014.

This is due to the contaminated water overflowing from the seaside of Reactor 1 ~ 4 to Fukushima plant port.

They also announced 2 Billion Bq of Cesium-137 and 1 Billion Bq of Tritium flow to the sea every single day as well.

Fukushima plant port is not separated from the Pacific. Discharged nuclide naturally spreads to the sea.

Dead sea fish and krill and shrimp are being found washed up on shores. Speculation is that the deaths are caused by "climate change!" Rise in incidence of thyroid cancer in Japanese children suggests that radioactive material from Fukushima is the undoubted cause. Japanese government authorities prefer to engage in silence or denial of the danger to all life on the planet.

No one knows the technology necessary to decommission the Fukushima nuclear power plants which have melted down and continue to release radioactive material directly into the Pacific Ocean. Taiwan just issued a ban on all food from Japan!

The half life of these particles is measured in lengthy periods of time. Cesium 137 Strontium 90

Possible extinction event has occurred.

The longer the half life the less the current danger. 14 days after the big one goes off and destroys your town you can come out of your shelter. That's the other side of the half-life coin, the deadly danger of radioactivity with a short half life.

I still don't know just what or which is causing all the sea creatures in the Pacific to be affected? I just make sure any salmon I buy is from the Atlantic Ocean.

If the Pacific is doomed so are all the oceans.

IS it really so that material which is radioactive but has an very long half life is not as dangerous to one's health than one with a short half life?

Have a nice day.

In less then a billion years the Sun will be fusing mostly helium (by then most of the hydrogen will have been fused to helium. When that happens the sun will be much, much hotter than it is now and the oceans will evaporate and mammalian life will be doomed.

But not to worry. Our kind will be extinct much sooner. Mammalian species on Earth do not have a long shelf life.

Because of the continual increase in solar output and the clumping together of the continents to come, most mammalian life will cease to exist by about 300,000,000 years. The continential clumping will make most of the land arid dessert. In contrast, the rise of civilization only happened in the last 10,000 years. Even the next human 1000 is beyond our imaginations. We are living in an incredible time on an incredible planet and we may be the only creatures in the galaxy who begin to understand WTF is going on with and in a universe we cannot get outside of.

That is about right. In addition to continental drift, our very own Sun is fusing its hydrogen into helium. When the hydrogen runs out helium will fuse into carbon and produce much higher temperatures. The oceans will evaporate and multi-celled land life will become extinct first, then life in what is left of the seas. In a word, this planet is doomed. Which means we are doomed unless we find a new place to live.

The cockroaches will survive. They came here on spaceships and they will leave on spaceships.
