The Robots Sent Into Fukushima Just Keep Dying

Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) head of decommissioning admitted on Thursday that more creativity was needed in developing its robots sent to the reactive zone.

The Fukushima nuclear power plant was massively damaged in 2011, when three of the six nuclear reactors suffered meltdown after being struck by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and associated tsunami waves.

DAPL Company Reported 69 Accidents Polluted Rivers In 4 States in Just 2 Years

Although it obstinately insists pipelines are safe, the company responsible for the Dakota Access Pipeline racked up 69 reported accidents in just two years — leaking hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil products and tainting rivers in four states. That averages nearly three spills each month.

Mystery radiation ‘clouds’ may pose risk to air travellers

We have long known that high-altitude flight exposes us to cosmic rays. The radiation dose on a flight from London to Tokyo is roughly equivalent to a chest X-ray.

Now research flights have revealed the existence of “clouds” where radiation levels can be at least double the usual level. They were discovered as a result of the NASA-funded Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) programme, which aims to develop new methods of measuring and monitoring high-altitude radiation.

In 265 flights, radiation levels detected generally followed the expected pattern, but in at least six instances they surged, as though the aircraft was flying through a radiation cloud.

Major Big Box Retailer Calls on Suppliers to Stop Using Bee-Killing Chemicals

Major global big box retailer Costco has recently called on their suppliers to limit non-essential pesticides in products to be sold on its store shelves, specifically discouraging the use of neonicotinoids, a class of insecticides known to be exceptionally harmful to bees and other critical pollinator insects.

Droves of dying koura float down stream

A man out for a leisurely fish this afternoon was "shocked" after seeing thousands of dead koura floating past him.

Erin Hampson-Tindale headed down to Oraka Stream in Putaruru for a bit of fishing only to find what he described as "thousands" of freshwater crayfish of all sizes and ages floating past him.

"I have spent over an hour here now and there has been a constant flow of them. It's shocking, there are literally thousands and thousands stumbling past," he said.

The United States' Solar Market Just Had Its Biggest Quarter Ever, and Q4 Will Top It

The United States solar market just shattered all previous quarterly solar photovoltaic installation records. According to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association’s Q4 2016 U.S. Solar Market Insight report, 4,143 megawatts of solar PV were installed in the U.S. in the third quarter of the year, a rate of 1 megawatt every 32 minutes. That pace is even faster today, with the fourth quarter on track to surpass this past quarter’s historic total.

New Zealands Capital City Wellington Sustained More Damage During Mag 7.8 Quake Than Expected

The city council was quick to open the CBD a day later. I was in there all day today and there were engineers in hard hats with clip boards all over the place and more and more buildings are being flagged as at risk of collapse.

I have to wonder how safe I am going to be in there tomorrow. It is looking grim and many more parts of the city are being cordoned off. There was a decent mag 5 aftershock this morning while myself and nearly 2000 others were attending a conference at the Michael Fowler Centre. Nobody panicked but it was a sizeable shake.

I believe we are in for a big aftershock around 6.9-7+ in the next few weeks. If it hits in the daytime it could be deadly for everyone in the city just like the second quake in Christchurch was years ago.

I hope it isn't any-time tomorrow.

John Bedini, Noted Free Energy Researcher, Died Unexpectedly on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016

John Bedini has been an inventor, researcher, developer and pioneer of some of the most innovative energy producing devices available. He is most noted for his "School Girl" motor circuits and variations of them. John's circuits are easily the most efficient battery charging circuits in the world. Not only are they the most efficient, the batteries power loads much longer in addition to lasting many years more - simply because of the way the batteries are charged. Instead of charging batteries with hot electron current, his circuits charge them with the voltage potential component of electricity, which is free of electron current or mostly free of electron current. The batteries stay cold and therefore, internal heat doesn't deteriorate them over time as conventional chargers do.
