EXPOSED: Health threats of ‘safe’ levels of radiation covered up by Anglo-American establishment in nuke test; vets fight for pensions

(NaturalNews), Christmas Island Atomic Bomb Tests, radiation, the atomic bomb, nuclear arms, nuclear fusion, nuclear test, nuclear explosions, nuclear warheads, nuclear testing, nuclear proliferation, nuclear radiation, atomic bomb test, atomic bomb testing A pensions case has become the site of a vicious battleground between the Anglo-American establishment and a British scientist in a row over accepted safe levels of radiation exposure.

It began in 2011 when a group of 16 veterans of UK nuclear bomb tests in Australia and Christmas Island applied for pensions on the grounds that their illnesses (and those of their children and grandchildren) were most likely caused by particulate uranium inhalation.

In a tale with more twists than a John Grisham novel, the veterans have had their appeals quashed after being forced to change their firm of solicitors and their expert witness – international radiation authority and Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, Dr. Chris Busby, who has a track record of winning five similar cases in a row.

The veterans, originally represented by Rosenblatts Solicitors, had commissioned Dr. Busby to provide evidence. But Rosenblatts suddenly pulled out of the case in December 2012 after funding provided by the Royal British Legion dried up. Washington-based Hogan Lovells International – a firm with a history of representing government and pharmaceutical companies, quickly filled the gap.

Coincidentally, at the very same time, Dr. Busby had obtained access to secret nuclear test reports by the Ministry of Defence (MoD), revealing information of significance to the case. He had also by then written 12 reports showing new evidence of the link between internal radiation exposure to uranium, the main component of all the bombs and a range of ill health effects.

Dr. Busby states:

“Evidence from photographs taken at Christmas Island showed that the Grapple Y bomb had sucked up enormous amounts of sea water which rained out as black rain. The black rain was black because the bomb, according to a secret document, was made of 4 tons of uranium.

It was the uranium particles that were the most likely cause of the cancer and other health problems in the veterans and the genetic damage and malformations in their children and grandchildren. This was exactly like the uranium effects in Iraq and in the Gulf War veterans and their children.”

A victory for the vets would destroy the current radiation risk model and open the floodgates for more claims

If the court were to allow the evidence, a victory is more likely, setting a legal precedent for some 900 other veterans waiting in the wings.

Three weeks before the case was due to be heard, Hogan Lovells dropped Dr. Busby as an expert witness and replaced him with a nuclear physicist with no track record on the health impacts of radiation. The veterans weren’t consulted and left with no alternative but to accept the new arrangement. The evidence in the MoD’s reports was excluded from the court’s decision-making, and the current radiation risk model, which offers obsolete and incorrect evidence about the effects of uranium inhalation, was used instead.

All the cases were lost, but two separate appeals have been lodged. Despite attacks on his name and reputation, Dr. Busby is adamant about continuing the fight for the veterans. He concludes:

“Should this appeal go unchallenged it would have the effect of knocking on the head any chance that future veterans will have to show that their illnesses were caused by their exposures. Millions have died because of this cover up of the effects of internal radiation, and millions more will die if we don’t succeed in destroying this risk model.”

Who Is Trayvon Martin? Trayvon Martin Case Injustice…


One Cannot Help Wonder If a Black "Neighborhood Watch"-Man in Florida Can Be Exonerated For Shooting Half-Hispanic Teenager?

Op-Ed: Proudly Shooting Black Kids in the Rosewood Genocide State

By Ruth Hull

In 1923, white racists in Florida destroyed the town of Rosewood, justifying their siege and slaughter by pretending the Blacks were the racists and the Whites had a right to defend their values by killing. Not much has changed.

If a big Black man shot an unarmed White kid, imagine what the trial would look like. The big Black man would probably do whatever it took to avoid a trial and public outrage. He certainly wouldn’t think he could pull off a defense that a White kid with a candy bar put him in fear for his life before he shot the boy. That would be a ludicrous defense. So why is the news media making the big armed White man who shot the unarmed Black kid into a victim? Maybe it’s because most of the news media is owned by big white racists.

You would think that Harriet Tubman and William Edward Burghardt Du Bois would be rolling over in their graves at the idea that the prosecution of a big White man for the killing of an unarmed Black child is a racist prosecution. Racism is when you have the power (the gun) to harm a helpless individual (as in unarmed) and choose to follow that person around and shoot him because he’s Black. Would Zimmerman have been following Martin if he were white? Racism is not charging the white guy who killed the unarmed Black child because with first degree murder with special circumstances. Yes, according to the State of Florida, Trayvon Martin was a child. Martin wasn't much different than your kid. He had plans, dreams and friends. He might have grown up to be the doctor who would save your child's life one day.

It is interesting that, when George Zimmerman had his neighbor Jonathon Manalo call Zimmerman's wife, Zimmerman was eager to have the neighbor tell the wife that he (Zimmerman) had shot someone. Was this a warning to the wife? Was Zimmerman a particularly violent man who had just finished another fight before following and shooting a Black kid? Did he ever shoot or mistreat anyone his own size? Was the call actually a warning to the wife to not mess with her big powerful husband? It’s amazing that anyone dared to testify for the prosecution in a community that where residents see Blacks as the enemy. The only cold hard fact we have to go on and can trust is that an armed White guy, who seemed cool and calm, shot an unarmed Black kid, who only had a candy bar and a cell phone.

The whole tenor of the trial shows what is wrong with racism in America. To those who don’t believe racism is alive and well, look at all the people defending and excusing the killing of an unarmed Black kid by an armed big White guy. And why was it initially so hard to get Florida’s 4th Circuit’s state’s attorney to charge Zimmerman with second degree murder when a Black man shooting a White kid would have been charged with first degree murder with special circumstances in most jurisdictions in this country? Has anyone else noticed that the prosecutors don’t seem to be trying that hard to get a conviction?

The trial reminds me of the big men who beat up their little wives while claiming that the little wives deserved the beatings. I’ve been on the other end of those beatings and I’ve been told that I provoked the beatings. Among the numerous beatings I received was one where I wound up bleeding from the head, unable to stand and very dizzy after having had my head slammed against a door again and again. I was told by my husband that anyone would kill me because I had stolen lettuce from the refrigerator. In my defense, I took the lettuce to feed to my vegan daughter, whom my husband had said would not be allowed to eat that night but I tossed it back after I was told at high volume that I would die. My husband was shocked when the judge slapped him with a permanent restraining order after he explained that I had taken his lettuce. Similarly, Trayvon Martin is being treated as having provoked his own shooting by a man who followed him around with a gun and later shot him.

From the testimony of Jonathon Manalo, Zimmerman was calm. Manalo’s description of Zimmerman’s reaction to the incident is reminiscent of someone who had just thrown out the garbage.

The news media’s reaction to the Zimmerman trial reminds me of the reaction of the town of Sumner, Florida, to the false reasons the White townspeople felt justified in destroying the whole town of Rosewood, full of innocent African Americans, including women and children.

Did an innocent Black kid deserve to die just because he was a Black kid who wandered through the wrong neighborhood? Have Florida and America not progressed at all since Rosewood? The verdict will be indicative of how ingrained racism is in America. Are you a racist? Where do you stand on this issue?

BTW, this is one of those times when I’m kind of ashamed to be white.

Watch the clip to the Rosewood movie showing the mindset of those who defend the killing of Trayvon Martin. If you get a chance, rent or buy the movie Rosewood. It’s an important part of the history of today’s racism in Florida and America. Are you like the people in Sumner or do you care about what happened to Trayvon Martin?

Die Off – Fish

Editors note: As a teenager, I predicted we would live to see mass fish die-offs. Most of the media is running stories about “reviving” extinct species (propaganda) during a time all of the yellow canary in the coal mine species (fish and shellfish) are having massive, unreported by media die offs. The fish die offs (probably tens of millions of fish) on Iran’s coastline are some of the most censored photos * not online *. Iran blames the US military for killing the fish. About 18 months ago, photos and reports from Iran showing millions of dead fish were taken down or DNS-blacklisted - like it had never happened. Western news never covered this die off that I am aware of. Of one thing there can be no debate - one cannot "clone" 10-million new fish to "replace the dead". Most of these 'clone extinct this or that' articles are truly a comic relief act while the family is marched to the gallows.

 Mass die offs and extinctions are not the same thing, mass die offs can lead to extinction. See Extinctions below.

Editors Note: Huffington Post is Pushing the TV Show Brink, which proves two things: 1) The Media would film men with shovels cleaning out outhouses if a demographic with money paid their cabTV bill and sat though the consumerism/conformism commercials, and 2) There is always some who will not question who the “we” is in “we can farm corals” or “we can hand plant sponges” or “we can hand-sow Salmon eggs in Salmon-extinct rivers.

Hand-sow 15,000 square feet of blue-grass seed and hand-dress 15,000 square feet with steer manure, then imagine 15,000,000 square miles of shoreline waters of varying depth. Which 'we' is going to hand plant coral, sponge and salmon, the TV audience?

 Needless to say, the ‘Brink’ TV advertisements were not placed here. The preponderance of ‘Brink’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ mentality and absence of raw data and raw numbers of die offs and extinct species is just more truth being the first species to die in modern times. Even if we magically brought back Wooly Mammoth, such an animal would be genetically inbred and unable to cope with oil pipelines, oil spills, wind and water-carried Fukushima pollution and 88-fracking chemicals in the water. Tech and research magic will not stop hundreds of species including the eight-leopards from vanishing forever. Turning Species Extinction into feel good TV with ads for gas-guzzler ego-cars should be criminalized.

8 Beautiful Species on the Verge of Extinction

Editor: Silicon India's writer puts childish, anthropomorphized values on what is mass tragic extinction (fluffy-furred animals with expressive eyes are worthy of an article but slimy, fishy Herring are not?) and which species 'deserve' resurrection. Let us hope capitalists and politicians everywhere do not merit 'resurrection'. When 100 tons of Herring die on the shores of Iceland, which scientists are 'resurrecting' them and with who's checkbook? Do leopards, not a human food source, deserve more protection and more 'resurrection' than Herring, an important staple food to Northern humans? Putting childish values on species ignores that food chains (webs of natural life) are made of hundreds of inter-related species.

The more links are extincted out of the food chain, the sooner Homo sapiens goes extinct. Human extinction is inevitable; the big question is how soon or far away will it occur. Scientists who point to the 7.x billion of us here now as our "sheer numbers as safety net" are pointing to the broken neoprene rope of a species addicted to bungy-jumping. Numerous writers focus on 'resurrecting' species * we extirpated * or said writers pontificate on how * we might use resurrected species as a new capitalism industry *. Said articles remind me of a child whistling in the dark to act unafraid while gangsters nearby polish their guns.

In the 1980's, writers wrote about 'saving rainforest species' for medicine, disease cures, etc. Now that we are, in 2013, hundreds of thousands of extirpated rainforest species down the road, whose time (labor) and money shall 'resurrect' the destroyed species?

The Six Trillion Million Dollar Biosphere

We Can Rebuild Her

"Broken biosphere built anew, polluted spirit lingers, torn in two."

"Earth, biosphere. A planet barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild her. We have the technobabble, the very same technobabble that destroyed her. This time technobabble will only technobabble for good; this time technobabble will have no cyanide runoff killing fish, only the extracted gold from the goldmine. We promise, no more technobabble toxic runoff... Biosphere 2.0 will replace a small fraction of what we destroy, inevitably paid for by you, the victim... what could Possibly go wrong with business as usual?

We have the capability to build the world's first second third fourth fifth great age of squander and environmental carnage... (stone, bronze, iron, industrial, technobabble ages) cybernetic technosphere. Earth will be that cybernetic carnaged organism. Better than she was before. More disposable, more easily violated, more used up with new ways to rape her visage...." — The Six Hundred Trillion Million Dollar Biosphere... Multiple use, multiple pollutants, housing tract/iron ore pit, shopping center/gas fracking derricks, Nuke plants atop volcanoes, etc.

A miscreant biosphere is defeated and suffers a horrific TV-imagineering annihilation. Their biosphere is shattered beyond repair. No Planet Could Survive That!

But later, she returns! Only this time, she's a cyborg! She's got more resources to exploit, and she's less human so it's OK to be more brutal fracking, nuking, GMOing, oiling, overharvesting and toxic wasting her. Think of the possibilities: A drunk driver kills himself and 12 other people in a horrific New Years Eve car wreck. The CIA-financed "Mother Jones" makes the case that we not let the drunkard driver go extinct, rather we revive his DNA...

Imagineer the villian pesticide manufacturer Monsanto killing California Condors. Monsanto simply imagineers funding for green Act Ivists who help Monsanto genetically engineer cyber-bio Condors that never die, they just need new batteries. Stronger, faster, better, completely resistant to even harsher pesticides than ever before. Gentlemen, we can resurrect whatever we destroy (and this is capitalism country, what is in it for Fortune Polluter 1000 companies?).

The bison counterpart, the new resuscitated species we can now build into great numbers for future destruction is 1,200 pounds heavier with meat than a mere bison. Unlike Bison, Cowson are ideal for keeping lawns short in rurban Chicago, Omaha, Des Moines, etc. Imagine loading up an antique Sharpe's buffalo gun or an A4 and slaughering a Cowson right on your front lawn. Some people just take the tongue (considered a delicacy) and leave the rest for the crows.

We can resurrect dinosaurs, we just cannot feed America's homeless. We can leave Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha extinct, but we must wake up the old, hairy elephants. Image from http://www.nocaptionneeded.com/2008/05/from-tragedy-to-farce/


The big six pesticide companies want you to know how green they have become. Using their latest DNA/RNA recombinant technology, Ansel Adams and John Muir have been bio-resurrected to complain about fracking and Cowson slaughter. The six companies were deeply concerned that there was a shortage of environmental persons and groups that could not be 'bought off'. Muir and Adam's were once considered green and above reproach - though the new Muir and Adams are dependent on Monsanto for daily gene injections. But a valuable point has been made, when the Dodo bird goes extinct, tech simply mass produces genetic taxidermic specimens of Dodo. When environmentalists as a species turn bought off by the Pentagon or coerced by government / coprporate threats to family, clones of John Muir, Ansel Adams, et al can simply be rolled out of a gene-mill and aired on ABC7 on Sunday night...

We can un-extinct them, re-combine their DNA and make them Agent Orange tolerant, Roundup ready, Syngenta well-water-resistant, able to withstand high doses of radioisotopes and PCB-tolerant. In the time and dollars it takes to ressurect one extinction, one hundred other species will go permanently extinct. Ka-ching, can you spell j-o-b s-e-c-u-r-i-t-y?

We have our very own Jinxa Gass out in California in Yosemite Valley with the clones of John Muir and Ansel Adams, sponsored by Monsanto. Jinxa?

"I'm standing here with Ansel Adams who is about to make a glass plate of a group of cloned wolves drinking out of the Merced River. Ansel, I did not know there were wolves in Yosemite?"

"Well, Jinxa, these are California grays with some of the DNA filled in by Monsanto, who runs this 'new' theme park. And this is now known as, "Monsanto Valley", Yosemite is such a dated name", don't you think, John"?

John Muir piped up, "We not only have wolves back, but we have people like Dick Cheney and other sociopaths in all the time, wolf hunting here in Monsanto Valley. Cheney bagged 7 wolves guarding their lair just below Tehipite Peak". Selling Wolf hunting tags here is how Monsanto recoups their money from resurrecting the wolves..."

"Where are you two headed next " Jinxa interrupted.

"Oh, we only are cloning one-headed-wolves, the "two-headed-chimera-wolves" stuff is just theoretical, right now... John Muir elbowed Ansel and gave him a shut-up look...

"We are flying a Monsanto LeerJet to Monsanto Bay, Maui to photograph Dick Cheney and his family spearfishing for rekindled fish species, beach barbecuing

..."what are Chimeras"? Jinxa asked, but both men ignored her question.

...rejuvenated mammals at Disneyland, Maui", Ansel replied. Imagineer the flavor of extinct mammals and extinct fish, revitalized for a Cheney beach barbecue. Cheney and family are some of the first to start the re-extinction process over. Cheney shot a formerly-extinct Dolphin and had his Maui porters roast it in an underground fire pit. They are the first family to taste prehistoric dolphin since cave people.

The Cheney's bought over ten-thousand re-extinction lottery tickets to win spots on the re-extinction hunting and fishing teams. Dick is a good sport, he threw all their campground trash into the bay...

Stronger industrial poison resistance, easier to hunt, harvest and exploit, better tasting than previously extincted species - new Biosphere 2.0; because the first biosphere was just too easy to pollute, over-harvest to extinction.

Gentlemen, thanks to 'our' foresight, we can rape, plunder and pillage the Earth, like never before, safe in the knowledge that we are budgeted to restore one out of every hundred species we extinct. Think of it as a "Gentlemen's Noah's Ark in reverse. No, Teddy Roosevelt is not rolling over in his grave, he's soaking up nutrients in the revival chambers... Jessica Simpson could not say "conservationism" without stuttering, ol' Teddy just rolls it right off of the tongue. This articlette paid for with funds from Fortune 1000 Extinctors.

Which baits the question, who paid for all the studies, web space, glossy magazine endorsements and TV to turn 'species resurrection' into a household word and make conservation obsolete? Somebody rich * paid for * 'this' revivalism of man-destoyed DNA as America's next 'theme park, cartoon, movie saga prequel, sequels and sports team' campaign, including the anti-anti-resurrectionist campaign. Be sure to be wary of the clueless chick magnet hunk and beautiful airhead female who is really a genius official spokespersons, hosting an "It Was Just Decanted" weekly TV series on freshly decanted species, 49 minutes of advertisements and 11 minutes of re-run footage leading to the (anticlimactic) newly decanted specie moment.

Beautiful Brainless Airhead Who Is Really A Genius, "This Chimera is the first Pentagon cloned composite animal to be decanted".

Clueless Chick Magnet Hunk, "This Chimera Mark One is supposed to have Male Lion and Alligator Jaws, Horse-Galloping Legs, A Pit-Bull Brain, Velociraptor Front Claws and the Hunting Instincts of Wolf and Velociraptor"...

Beautiful Brainless Airhead Who Is Really A Genius, "This Chimera is the first Pentagon cloned composite animal to be decanted, we are so lucky to be here in the same room. They are letting me bottle feed it so I am going to be the imprinted Mommy figure...

Jinxa Gass, ABC777 News, so is it like a mountain, you have to do this, because it is there?

The Beautiful Brainless Airhead Who Is Really A Genius and the Clueless Chick Magnet Hunk looked stumped briefly, then the Beautiful Brainless Airhead Who Is Really A Genius chirped, "it just is not fun making taxidermy stuffed animals extinct, we are the first in human history to re-extinct animals and re-extinct plants and insects. Imagine squishing a dragon fly dead, that went extinct a million years ago. It is such a rush!"

Clueless Chick Magnet Hunk's face lights up... "I bought a cabin at Big Bear and bulldozed all the junk Incense Cedars and 80-year old junk Manzanita away, I am growing a GMO-cloned pre-historic Araucaria forest..."

"What for?" interjected Jinxa Gass.

"To chop down with my new Stihl Chain Saw and burn in my fireplace, I will be the first human to chop down an extinct Araucaria since the cave people... Man, what a rush!"

A major character, possibly even a popularly nasty Big Extinct, has been Killed Off for Real, pronounced dead, extirpated, extinct and buried. However, the established laws of the universe allow for De-Extinction, a Sufficiently Advanced Alien, Applied Phlebotinum, Deus ex Machina or similar agency to intervene and subvert what naturally follows dying. Namely, staying dead. (In some cases, an explanation isn't even bothered with.)

Maybe the writers "scientists" were running short of new ideas and decided to recycle some old (Great Auk Pinguinus impennis, Tarpan equus ferus ferus, Banks Island Wolf Canis lupus bernardi, California Golden Bear Ursus arctos californicus) characters. Maybe the actor has recently acquired some indecent photographs of the producers Monsanto Geneticists. Maybe the new writer was devastated his predecessor killed extincted the character cute, anthropomorphized Caribbean Monk Seal Monachus tropicalis and left inner-city Ginat Norway Rats alive. Who knows? He (She) is now penciled-in Back From The Dead!

The form of afterlife can vary pretty widely. They may "simply" be resurrected or reincarnated (usually as a sentient pet animal), physical or mental alterations optional; or we may now have a ghost, or vampire... zombie, angel, godling, demon... haunted car... okay, that last one will be hard to top (except with a Love-matic Grandpa!). Bringing someone anthropomorphized animals back from the dead by supernatural genetic cloning means is generally treated as being a negative 'the next big prime time TV show' thing because of how unnatural profitable to the shows sponsors it is.

If a character cannot come back from the dead entirely, they may show up as a Spirit Advisor or Mentor Archetype, letting them be literally dead, but allowing them to interact with the living (think of Obama's Drones as his personal "Spirit Eagle Guide").

...The character's resurrection from the dead could result in a situation of Unwanted Revival, such as 100 tons of Brazilian Fish coming back to life in an Olympic Swimming pool and then re-extincting. When the same "me scientist, last week me no spell 'um, but now me are one" mentality contemplates Trinity, Hiroshima and Fukushima, it "always seemed like a good idea at the time". Turning an extinct Panda into the new "digital smart age" Lazarus * might * require resurrecting several extinct varieties of Bamboo, for instance. Most of the "let's turn this or that Teddy-Bear-like animal into a modern Lazarus" articles make no mention of resurrecting the corresponding habit plants, food plants that would be required for said animal. Perhaps the resurrected Pandas can learn to eat Happy Meals and be a corporate Mascot...

Some of us hate to admit it, but animal resurrection via science is beginning to make sense, in the same way armed drones over America 'makes sense'...



Scroll down (above window) and watch farm soil, oil, gas, coal "future" supplies running out, watch desrtification eat up usable land and population mushroom...

Most of what passes for news these days is subterfuge away from the www.worldometers.info counter numbers above (math is so boring compared to American Idol and Wealth-Envy). The MSM take desertification, overpopulation and turn it into a reality game show. All of the 'best' farmland in America is 200+ years over-farmed (depleted). While writing this, 6,491,196 hectares of farmland had turned to desert, with one-new-hectare of desert being added in a little under one second, globally. New farm soil forms an inch every 10,000 years, but human activity has farm soil loss working against us. Tech will not make new farm soil; tech will destroy old, Ice-age-era farm soil.


We can resurrect turtles, fish, bi-valves, kelp beds, coral, sponge and shellfish; we have the tech to resurrect them all from the dead. Why can't we replace Anderson Cooper with Joey the Watchman?
