In blatant disregard and denial of the ill effects of tritium on human
health and the global ecosystem, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)
is preparing to dump nearly a million short tons of tritiated wastewater
from its storage tanks at Fukushima directly into the Pacific Ocean. The
massive release of radioactive wastewater is casting the Pacific Rim and
Arctic nations adrift onto the uncharted waters of a planetary catastrophe.
This premeditated crime stands in direct violation of the 1972 London
Convention on Prevention of Marine Pollution and subsequent treaties,
to which Japan is a signatory, forbidding ocean disposal of nuclear waste.
Instead of building new storage tanks to replace the current units, which
are past the 5-year expiry date, TEPCO in its drive for profitability
can get away with gross violations of international law because the Japanese
ministries of foreign affairs, fisheries, education and economic development
aid have bribed the leaders of Pacific Basin nations, an open secret well
known in the International Whaling Commission.
During the Fukushima meltdowns, Tokyo permitted and even encouraged TEPCO
to release unprecedented amounts of radioactive isotopes in water and
solid waste into the ocean. During the crucial years 2011-2014, the Tribunal
of the UN Convention on Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) was under the thumb of
its president Shunji Yanai, a diplomat and key supporter of Japan’s nuclear-weapons
armament. No legal complaints were brought against Japan’s sea disposal,
in notable disregard of the secret sea-dumping of weapons-grade plutonium.
Not a whisper of objection was voiced by the top politicians of those
“ banana republics of the north”, the U.S. and Canada, suppliers of reactors
and uranium respectively for Japanese nuclear-energy companies.
In parallel to the despicable political cowardice and avarice, not a single
research laboratory or scientific institute has ever issued a letter of
protest over the geophysical impact of cumulative radioactive dumping
along the tectonic subduction zones and volcanic vents on the seafloor.
The institutions responsible for protecting public health and the marine
environment from a nuclear disaster, including the IAEA, Japan’s Economy
Ministry, the U.S. Department of Energy, NOAA and the WHO, have no clue
about how to stop the continuing disaster spewing out of Fukushima and
lack an iota of political will to stop this madness.
Their sole emergency response has been resounding silence and occasional
disinformation to conceal the extent of the crisis. The scientific chicanery
and lack of concern for public health is an ethical calamity in a certain
sense more sordid than the mass murder now being perpetrated by the nuclear
industry. Make no mistake about it: we are heading, amid this environmental
and moral catastrophe, toward a day of reckoning when the perpetrators,
collaborators and beneficiaries behind this monumental crime against humanity
will face stern swift justice without a glimmer of mercy.
Q&A: Way Down Below the Ocean
Here, this segmented article in my ongoing series of reports on the Fukushima
crisis focuses on just one of the emerging threats: the role of tritium
and deuterium, or heavy water, in detonating nuclear fusion blasts at
the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. The Fukushima crisis is not over yet,
it’s just starting to get interesting.
A titanic force is gathering at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, a powerful
cocktail of radioactive isotopes and pure plutonium out of Fukushima and
from other nuclear power plants since even before the 2011 reactor meltdowns.
Far from being a “lesser” threat as compared with cesium, strontium or
particles of uranium, the heavy water elements of tritium and deuterium
pose the potential danger of combining in a fusion reaction powerful enough
to trigger earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions along The Ring
of Fire. Contrary to the mistaken belief that seawater only quells nuclear
reactions, the seabed is a natural test site for detonating fusion reactions.
The Q&A is followed by a backgrounder discussion of the curious phenomenon
called “muon-catalyzed cold fusion”.
- The starter question is: Does tritium dumping on this grand scale hold
hidden dangers besides the radioactive poisoning of seawater, clouds and
- The short answer: If released in large volume, tritium and its companion
deuterium dumped into the ocean can fuse together in an uncontrolled chain
reaction called muon-catalyzed cold fusion, which releases gamma rays
and explosive energy.
In contrast to thermonuclear fission of enriched uranium or plutonium,
which requires an enormous energy boost, muon-catalyzed cold fusion can
start spontaneously at or below room temperature. Three components are
needed to trigger this type of nuclear reaction: tritium and deuterium
along with a muon, which is a subatomic particle derived from cosmic rays
While laboratory experiments have been conducted since 1956, the potential
for an uncontrolled fusion reaction outdoors in nature was inconceivable
until TEPCO decided to dump its heavy water into the sea. Hence, we are
playing catch-up with reality, if for no other reason than not to suffer
the shock of ignorance like the civilians in Hiroshima when the bomb dropped.
It’s all-important to know what’s hitting us.
- Q: Can muons occurring in nature trigger a large-scale fusion reaction
between tritium and deuterium in the Pacific Ocean?
- A: Thus far in the Nuclear Era, the amount of tritium released from
nuclear power plants and nuclear-powered war vessels has been insufficient
for fusion by muon catalysis. A relatively short half-life of 12 years
has also limited long-term build-up of tritium in the sea.
What makes seafloor fusion possible in the near future is the sheer volume
of tritium and deuterium in the 777,000 metric tons of wastewater soon
to be released from Fukushima. That’s of a different order entirely from
heavy water releases of the past. All of a sudden, the threat dimension
of tritium-deuterium fusion has emerged.
- Q: Won’t tritium and deuterium be dispersed across the Pacific and become
too diluted to pose any threat?
- A: The hoax of dispersal and dilution of radioactive isotopes is shameless
nonsense and part of a disinformation campaign by the nuclear industry,
its supporters in government and publicity agents. Research studies have
shown that heavy water, as its descriptor suggests, is denser than ordinary
“light” water and seawater, and therefore sinks, especially in the colder
waters off northeast Japan and the northern tier of the Pacific as well
as the Arctic Ocean.
Along the seafloor, tritium and deuterium collect in depressions in the
rock or keep moving along currents until reaching deep trenches. What
is worrisome is the proximity of Fukushima to major subduction zones as
well as other risk factors, including the high-grade plutonium secretly
dumped into the ocean in the year following the 2011 meltdowns.
A fusion reaction can act as a trigger to unleash seismic forces or to
initiate a powerful fission explosion by uranium-derived radioactive materials.
If the tritium-deuterium mixture happens to settle over containers of
high-grade plutonium, especially along an undersea fault or volcanic vent,
that’s a problem much more serious than a deep-sea submersible vessel
can handle. The Japanese Natural Resource Agency operates undersea mining
vessels, but it will be difficult to convince the culprit government to
admit that it did something as reckless as dumping war-grade plutonium
off the coast. Another problems is extreme difficulty for a salvage operation
to vacuum-pump heavy water from a great depth.
Temperature makes a great difference between the planned release of cold
tritiated water and the earlier hot escape in 2011. The earliest tritium
flows during the reactor meltdowns escaped containment as steam, rising
in a heat column up to the jetstream across the Pacific and settled on
colder places, including the mountains of North America, volcanic peaks
in Hawaii (where mutated flowers were discovered in the following year)
and across the Arctic region. Due to emission of heat energy and its different
melting point, the tritium fallout fragmented the Arctic ice sheet and
frozen lakes in northern regions. The Obama administration did absolutely
nothing about the Arctic tritium crisis, and so the ball’s now in the
court of the Trump team, which has also donned a blindfold even as the
polar bears and walruses die off.
Q: Can muon particles reach the tritium and deuterium that’s concentrated
on the seafloor?
A: Now for the bad news. Muons don’t just descend from the sky above the
waves. Muons are created by neutrinos penetrating Earth from all directions,
including the antipodes, meaning the opposite end of the planet. Neutrino
collisions with minerals in the bedrock create muons. The deep water above
the seafloor is constantly being bombarded by muons coming from all directions.
Arguably, the deep sea is an optimal “lens” for fusion reactions.
Hardly anything is known about these undersea threats because the funding
from NOAA and other agencies for benthic research is allocated to the
“gold rush” to strip minerals from the seafloor or to study organisms
inside volcanic vents. Instead of get-rich schemes or pondering how life
began, it would have been better to invest in studies of how life on Earth
could end. The world’s navies have dumped their nuclear reactors and depleted
uranium into the ocean, so undersea radioactivity research has never been
encouraged by governments.
As an example, one strange factor that could radically increase the efficiency
of muon-catalysis are the vast layers of methyl hydrate, a type of frozen
hydrogen interlaced with ice, called “fire ice”. This crystal matrix could
provide a stable structure for efficient muon interactions with strategically
placed tritium and deuterium, resulting in massive releases of neutrons
and high energy. However, fire-ice has been researched solely as an alternative
fuel and never for these sorts of risk factors. As a consequence of greed,
environmental irresponsibility and neglect of risk, practically no attention
is paid to explosives and toxic chemicals piled on the seabed. It’s a
situation of waiting for an accident to happen.
Q: Can a fusion reaction trigger secondary explosions?
A: In an idyllic natural world, no, but this mangled planet is anything
but idyllic or natural. There is a huge amount of radioactive material
from nuclear plants dumped off the coast of Japan (3,000 containers prior
to Fukushima 2011), South Korea and the United States. Besides that, the
world’s seabeds contain an estimated 4 billion tons of natural uranium
of unknown purity. During the year after the 2011 disaster, the Japanese
nuclear authority removed weapons-grade plutonium from several secret
sites in the greater Fukushima complex and dumped the highly reactive
fissile material into the Pacific Ocean. Without maps or other public
information about where those plutonium piles are located, it’s not advisable
to dispatch a salvage vessel because it will end up as another Lucky Dragon
No.5, the trawler irradiated near Bikini Atoll.
If muon-catalysis occurs near any of those dump sites, the fusion reaction
could trigger a standard fission explosion. Note: the cold temperature
of deep seawater should tend to suppress and quell a fission reaction,
that is, if there are no mineral sources of oxygen nearby. One thing is
certain: the sea is full of surprises.
If an explosion occurs near a seismic fault or volcanic vent, the initial
shock wave alone could trigger tectonic forces or even tilt the Earth
off its axis, as happened during the March 14, 2011 explosion of Reactor
3. The sun doesn’t set where it used to pre-Fukushima. The Earth is similar
to a spinning top, and if the undersea blasts are strong enough, the planet
will wobble wildly and might even topple over, and there goes all the
air and water flung out into deep space.
Q: Can a fusion reaction by itself or in combination with a fission blast
cause an undersea earthquake or an volcanic eruption?
A: If the initial explosion occurs at a build-up point of seismic tension,
an undersea quake could ensue. The San Andreas Fault is patrolled by a
security force to prevent just such a terrorist attempt to artificially
trigger an earthquake. Japan is at the convergence point of three major
subduction zones between four huge tectonic plates, meaning huge pressures
are brought to bear on a relatively small geographic area. Therefore a
fusion blast could indeed trigger a series of earthquakes, tsunami and
volcanoes, any of which have the potential to destroy an onshore nuclear
reactor as happened on 311.
Q: Can this series of catastrophes threaten the human future on this planet?
A: In London and Las Vegas, bookies are not giving odds on the end of
life on Earth, if only because there won’t be anyone left to collect their
winnings. A nuclear disaster is one of few possible catastrophes (others
include a gigantic meteor strike and death rays from a supernova) that
can eliminate the vast majority of species on this planet. Fukushima has
probably done more harm to a greater number of species than any threat
since the Ice Age and possibly, before this crisis is over, even more
than the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs.
The full extent of damage from Fukushima is yet to be seen, much less
assessed, and undetected factors including radioactivity-caused DNA mutations
in the human gene pool, may have already doomed our fragile genome. It’s
not helpful that the nuclear regulators and scientific institutions remain
in denial, or that there exists no civil defense system to protect the
public while the Fukushima effects worsen.
Q: What can we do to stop this ongoing catastrophe?
A: - Learn to protect your health from radioactivity in food, water and
- Get involved with a local anti-nuclear movement, and if none exists
- Order a dosimeter or geiger counter to monitor radioactivity threats,
and report your findings in a blog or by posting to anti-nuclear groups
and online media like rense.com .
- Confront your congressman and senator about their voting record on nuclear
- Be creative and use your skills to promote a nuclear-free society.
Following the Q&A section, the following essay touches on various
aspects of muon-catalyzed cold fusion and the need for a much tougher
stance on science, policy, public health and ethical issues. Since the
scientific controversy related to cold fusion is a vast field in itself,
it’s discussed here only briefly. The challenge is always, of course,
to be accurate as possible while keeping things interesting and sometimes
humorous as an essay rather than a research paper.
The Basics of Heavy Water
The health risk from tritium arises from its simple atomic structure similar
to hydrogen, a component of the water molecule, which of course is the
basis for life. Tritium and deuterium are nuclear-boosted variants of
The nucleus of hydrogen, the simplest of all atoms, is a single positive-charged
proton, whereas the deuterium nucleus hosts an added neutron (a particle
without a charge), which like hydrogen can assume the form of a gas or
a component of water.
Aside from a small quantity of tritium and deuterium naturally produced
by cosmic rays passing through the water in dams or lakes located at high
altitude, the greater amount of heavy water on Earth is created inside
The tritium nucleus contains two added neutrons. Having double neutrons
in a small light atom is inherently unstable, and during the 12-year half-life
one tritium, one of those neutrons is likely to escape. The surplus energy,
which held that neutron in place, will be released as a beta ray, which
is energetic enough to cause skin burns or damage cells inside one’s body.
(Beta burns are a widespread and serious problem in Japan in the Fukushima
region and even at the 2020 Olympic sports venues in Tokyo Bay, with sores
Due to the failure to accurately monitor and issue reports on water released
from nuclear reactors, the amount of tritium and deuterium in the water
supply has been steadily increasing over the decades. Despite the absurdly
high levels of tritium permitted in drinking water by government agencies
under pressure from the nuclear industry, tritium-contaminated water should
be avoided to prevent beta-ray exposure to internal organs.
Deuterium is a lesser threat to health but it is not entirely safe. An
estimated 30 percent deuterium content in your body’s water will bring
on death. Nearly all space water (in ice asteroids) is deuterium due to
cosmic-ray bombardment, dooming space colonization, which is something
Branson and Musk is not telling prospective settlers. Just think of Conestoga
wagons around pools of alkali water in the deserts of the western USA
littered with skeletons.
A Cold Shot from Outer Space
Now let’s venture into the exotic science of muon-catalyzed cold fusion.
Any physics professor or lab researcher who scoffs at cold fusion and
attempts to deny its possibility is nowhere in the same league as the
late Luis Alvarez, the champion of Catastrophism who overcame a mocking
chorus of lesser minds to prove that the extinction of dinosaurs was caused
by a meteor from outer space.
The concept of muon fusion was earlier proposed by Andrei Sakharov, the
Nobel laureate and top nuclear-weapons designer in the Soviet Union. Alvarez
and Sakharov, are there any tag-team challengers? After gaining the endorsement
from that pair of brilliant minds, why then is cold fusion treated with
disdain by the science fraternity and relegated to snake oil and unethical
Just take a look around to see whether anyone from that high priesthood
has dared to criticize Fukushima. Not a peep from the peanut gallery.
Here’s a tautology worthy of the DOE: Cold fusion with its great promise
is a fraud but nuclear fission as demonstrated at Fukushima is great stuff.
Inside the liquid hydrogen chamber at his Berkeley laboratory in 1956,
Alvarez detected a collision involving an incoming lepton particle, which
his team’s calculations later showed to be a muon. The muon triggered
fusion of proton and deuterium nucleus to create helium, which in the
process released a gamma ray and 5.5 MeV (mega-electron-volts of energy).
In contrast to nuclear fission, Alvarez eagerly noted, cold fusion required
no external energy input.
To diagram how this remarkable cold fusion process worked, Alvarez and
his research team suggested that a negative-charged muon, which has 500
times more mass-energy (momentum) than an electron, sometimes will hijack
the electron shells of tritium and deuterium, creating a temporary cluster.
The heavyweight muon squeezes these nuclei together, forcing the reaction.
The consequent merger of two nuclei (involving a total of 2 protons and
3 neutrons) creates an unstable helium atom. Only with the ejection of
one of the neutrons, a gamma ray and 5.5 MeV (mega-electron volts, mega
standing for million), does the newly formed helium atom achieve stability.
The muon can move on to repeat this process on another pair, but in most
cases does not. The tendency of muons is to simply fly off, to the great
disappointment of cold-fusion researchers. Commercial cold fusion energy
production would require each muon to perform 200 such bondings during
their brief existence of only 2.2 milliseconds.
Alvarez’s real-world experiments with fusion reactions, which produce
far more energy that they consume, became the Holy Grail of nuclear physics
in the quest for an energy source more efficient and less risky than the
fire-breathing dragon of nuclear fission. That is until the Fleishman-Pons
scandal put the brakes on research.
In the 1980s, taunting criticism from conservative physicists forced fusion
research to stall after the media “witch trials” against the Fleishman-Pons
claims of room-temperature fusion. Unfortunately, the more meticulous
cold fusion research done by Steven Earl Jones at Brigham Young University
was conveniently ignored by the press. (Jones later came into the media
spotlight as the main expert critic of the official cover story about
the 911 World Trade Center collapse and was persecuted in academia for
his evidence-based analysis of a controlled demolition inside the WTC.)
It is to his lasting credit that Jones stood up against the philistine
fraternity of fake science and stood by cold fusion as well as for the
truth about 911 being an inside job. Science ethics did not win him subsequent
research grants or a chair professorship. Instead Jones was ostracized
and banned from his university. In its unethical essential character as
a social club, science has not progressed since the trial of Galileo,
who was found guilty of suggesting the Earth circles the Sun rather than
vice versa. The persecution of truth-telling, sound familiar?
More recently, a younger less-biased generation of researchers have conducted
laboratory trials inspired by the Alvarez findings. A team at the RIKEN
institute in Tokyo developed techniques to focus muon beams to achieve
increasingly strong energy releases of more than 3.0 MeVs with relatively
simple equipment. Despite the gains, cold fusion is still relegated to
It is ironic then that untrammeled greed and ethical duplicity at TEPCO
are about to unleash cold fusion on a titanic scale, with the entire Pacific
Ocean at a nuclear test site. Before long, instead of taunting cold-fusion
theory as unworkable, the scientific authorities may soon be denouncing
muon catalysis for releasing too much energy. If Godzilla rises out of
the Pacific Trench to storm into Tokyo Bay, shout a cheer for cold fusion.
The bottom of the ocean is an environment favorable for muon-catalyzed
fusion due to several factors, including intense pressure in the deep,
the tendency of tritium and deuterium to sink in seawater, cold temperatures
that retart the chaotic motion of free atoms, and an abundance of newly
An undersea research project of tangential significance is an Italian-sponsored
project called NEMO Phase-2, a neutrino and muon detector placed face-down
at a depth of 3,500 meters in the Mediterranean Sea off Cape Passero,
near Syracuse, Sicily. NEMO stands for Neutrino Mediterranean Observatory.
The research objective is to measure the muons that are created inside
the Earth, below the seabed, by neutrinos from space angling in around
the antipodes, the opposite side of the Earth, which for Italy is the
Tasman Sea between New Zealand and eastern Australia
A Race Against the Speed of Light
Created inside stars, cosmic rays known as neutrinos are elementary particles
without an electric charge that move at astonishing speed along straight
paths. The neutrino speed controversy is a fascinating issue since these
particles arrive to Earth from distant supernovae much earlier than light.
The orthodox defenders of Einstein’s theory of relativity attribute the
lag to the curvature of space as traveled by photons whereas neutrinos
move in a straight line.
This face-saving ploy is like saying at the racetrack: “My horse is faster
than yours even though yours won the race.” Lies, damned lies and statistics
are also a matter of relativity, or call it fake science.
The vast majority of neutrinos zip through the Earth unharmed and keep
heading toward some distant rendezvous with . . . something or the other,
or maybe nothing. However, some of those neutrinos crossing our planet’s
path collide with atoms in the Earth or dust in the atmosphere, releasing
a negative-charged muon. Following birth, the majority of muons continue
on their merry way. (Please, no questions about where muons go in the
When There’s No There There
Muon collisions sometimes occur only because there are so darned many
of the little critters, although a lot of muons have so far been undetectable
and therefore labeled “dark matter” (which is ridiculous) or as “flavors”.
Scent is perhaps a better description that taste, since one might get
a whiff of something passing by, like a heady perfume that triggers your
wildest imagination but you never get to meet or even see the woman you’ve
just fallen in love with. Well, an attachment like romantic love is delusional,
and as Buddhist philosophy puts it, there’s only Emptiness.
Never feel alone because your lonesome body is the Holland Tunnel for
ghostly commuter muons. According to a high-energy researcher at the University
“One muon passes through the palm of your hand every second, or one muon
per minute through a fingertip. In the space of a single night, a million
muons pass through the human body.”
How can it be that you’ve never felt a single muon penetrate your vital
organs, not even your private parts, and yet your body is being constantly
invaded? Well, it’s like two ships passing in the night. You cannot feel,
hear or see those million of tiny bullets zipping through your skin and
bones, and they don’t know you are there. As a revisit to hometown Oakland
was for Gertrude Stein: “there is no there there.”
Even if one or another muon happens to zap an atom in your urinary tract
nobody will ever know, not even you in the morning.. It’s like the tree
falling in the forest that nobody is around to hear.
The shyness of the muon is a huge problem. The solution to this nagging
problem could be, thanks to TEPCO’s gross irresponsibility, in the crystal
matrix of frozen hydrogen on the seafloor. Time for an analogy.
Bowling Pins and Nitro Frozen Cocktails
Muon catalysis is like bowling in the 1940s. That big heavy ball is the
muon moving close to light speed down the bowling lane. The pin boy, however,
is in a bad mood because he was stood up on date with a girl for the matinee
movie, and so he places the pins here and there absentmindedly in no particular
order, and then goes out to smoke a cigarette. As the bowler, you grit
your teeth because your score is going to be awful, meaning you get to
buy the next round of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Then the manager comes over to tell you that a new-fangled pin-setting
machine has just been installed in the next lane, and he wants you to
try it out. To your amazement, after the machine is done clanking and
groaning, the bowling pins are there in a perfect triangle. You kiss that
ball, and feel the gravity of the moment, and let it roll. Boom! Clatter.
Strike! Suddenly, for the first time in your life, you are a pro-level
As for cold beer, you just earned one, but what’s bowling have to do with
cold fusion? Everything. Instead of trying to get the straight-shooting
muon to hit dancing atoms inside a gas chamber, what if the tritium and
deuterium atoms were to be aligned, in perfect formation inside a geometric
matrix, a bowling alley made of ice.
The muon slams into one t-d pair, and then whichever way it’s deflected
the muon will head straight into another pair, and so on ad infinitum
for 200-plus hits. That’s like a score of 300 in bowling. Have a Pabst
on Lawrence Berkeley, or nowadays a Corona. Actually, class, instead of
a pop quiz, your assignment is to make a frozen margarita out of methyl
hydrate . . . .
Unfortunately, that’s just the silver lining. The bowling pins are tritium
and deuterium from Fukushima, and that next lucky strike is going to trigger
a massive quake along the Nankai Trough and blow the lid off Mount Fuji,
covering Tokyo and its environs with fire and brimstone, before the cataclysm
moves on to the continents for a clean sweep. No beer or margaritas, bowling
Before drifting off like muon, what’s methyl hydrate? Nobody knows for
sure how the methyl hydrate got to the sea bottom. Japanese researchers
suggest the hydrogen was extracted from ancient plant matter, whereas
one American research team argue that undersea hydrogen is a byproduct
of the mineral chemistry in the formation of serpentine rock. With the
clock running down in overtime, too bad there’s not a minute left to find
If governments do not act to stop TEPCO, should you space cowboys try
to escape to outlandish asteroids? Stephen Hawking’s advise is to get
off this doomed planet ASAP. The self-centered tycoons plan to evade the
coming planetary disaster by reserving a seat on an aerospace liner operated
by Richard Branson or Elon Musk and leave the rest of us behind in the
Earth Apocalypse. It’s not space tourist, it’s an escape plan.
Their problem, tut-tut, will be resupply after the death of this garden
planet. Don’t expect another carton of Mars bars after the warehouse crew
sees the huge tsunami heading inland and sweeping away cargo rockets like
minicars in that foaming black tide during the 311 tsunami.
Soon thereafter, the space colonists will have to resort to cannibalism,
those selfish swine in spacesuits. How delicious that will be! Hi, I’m
Neil Hamstrung, your server for tonight. Which of you would like to meet
our charcuterie chef on a private tour of our galley?
So it’s better to die with your feet on the ground or under sixty meters
of water than to dangle in zero-gravity like a side of beef inside SpaceX
Falcon Heavy. The Millennium Falcon, it’s not. Right, Chewy?
The stars are not all they’re cracked up to be. On the next clear moonless
night, step outdoors to look at the glory of billions of sparkling stars
and realize that the overwhelming majority of those solar systems cannot
host life and are fatal to your health.
In this deathly galaxy, our living planet is amazingly rare, yet we, or
they, are nearly done destroying it. How stupid is that? How utterly ungrateful
for the gift of life. Sodom and Gomorrah was child’s play compared with
the sins of our grotesquely demented elites.
Be thankful for life and discover inside yourself the joy to be one of
the last men standing because you have an ultimate task ahead. The environmental
crimes of TEPCO along with the rest of the deceitful nuclear industry
are about to turn our garden planet into a molten orb spinning erratically
in a death dance. The executives with the nuclear industry, their lackeys
in politics, agents in regulatory agencies and the cult priesthood of
physicists are homicidal criminals who must be rounded up and fitted into
straitjackets until genocide trials can be hastily arranged and last-minute
ecocide laws enacted and implemented.
Hawking’s wrong about off-planet escape but he’s right about the final
hour approaching. When the death knell starts to toll, we must act to
save whatever little is left of human dignity by laughing out loud. Life
is the greatest gift, it’s glorious, especially when we’re about to lose
