Sharon Daphna – Energetic War on Humanity and How to Win ~ 5D Event


Note: Fascinating and inspiring presentation! Was really disappointed with Sharon’s feedback on Dane Wigington’s alleged motives and his absolute refusal to support Sharon’s research and the work her group has done to mitigate chemtrail toxins in the state of California. I was recently guided to pull my energy from Dane’s work, it just didn’t feel right anymore – something was amiss,.  Now I understand the underlying reason why that guidance came forth.

This Man Posed Proudly With the Bear he Shot While it Was Hibernating


Note: Bloodthirsty cowards like this man could hardly wait for the ink to dry on the bill to get blood on their hands with their first kill! This is enough to make my head explode! From my perspective, it would be appropriate to find and publicly shame the man who did this, and, determine which FIFTY TWO Senators supported this bill and SHAME those barbaric assholes out of office. With ENOUGH public outrage this bill can be overturned. Will you take action for the wolves and bears who don’t have a voice? Please research & contact the guilty Senators and share this message. Mahalo {~A~}

By Hefty

The U.S. Senate has voted 52 to 47 to overturn a law that forbids the hunting of wild animals that are in hibernation.

The regulations enforced by the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) were put in place to prevent excessive hunting, protect animals during the hibernation phase, and stop the killing of mothers and their offspring.

The new law allows hunters to use unfair practices, e.g. baiting hungry bears with food to shoot them at close range, and entering wolf and bear dens to slaughter entire families.

It also removes the prohibition on hunting from the air (shooting animals from an airplane or helicopter).

All of these hunting methods were formerly banned.

“What the Senate did today should outrage the conscience of every animal lover in America,” stated Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

The protective measures were enacted during the previous administration.

Polar bear sighted ‘praying’ at the foot of a cross


Note: While this is truly a great photo, to assume the Bear is praying is anthropomorphizing – giving the bear human traits when it was simply curious about an un-natural, man-made structure in it’s environment. Cute story tho, In-joy!

 ‘Dear God, Please send more salmon…’ © Ocean View Photography, Jessica Andrews 
Jessica Andrews was scanning through dozens of photos she took of a polar bear roaming around her backyard when she came across one that stopped her in her tracks.

The large animal was squatting beneath a white cross, its paws together and raised skyward as it looked up in a seemingly reverential pose.

“I didn’t notice it when I was taking them, but when I started to go through to edit them, oh my God, I was like, ‘Holy crap, he’s praying!”‘ the 22-year-old said from her home in Wesleyville, a shoreline community on Newfoundland’s central coast.

“I was amazed, I mean, beyond amazed.”

The slightly grainy photo shows the bear sitting on its haunches on a barren, snow-covered patch of rock as it looks up to the top of the white cross.

Andrews said she heard there was a polar bear on the small island behind her house soon after she arrived home from work at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. She grabbed her camera and spotted the bear wandering around some old fishing boxes on the island before it slipped into the water and ventured over to a neighbouring island.

She kept shooting photos and watching the bear with binoculars, insisting that the curious animal was staring back at her. She said the bear then approached the cross, sniffed around the base and then put his paw on it as if to climb up the main beam.

“He stood up and put his paw on the cross and that’s the picture I took,” she said. “It was almost like he was staring right at me.”

Andrews, who had never seen a polar bear before, said it’s not uncommon for the animals to visit the area. She said the animal meandered around the islands and rolled in the snow before disappearing from view Wednesday evening.

“It looked like he was having so much fun and it made me happy!” she said, adding that she took about 200 photos of the bear.

Police have issued a warning to people in the area to stay away from the bear.

Elephant tramples its owner to death in Cambodia


Note: Incidents with Elephant’s raging against humans have been on the rise in recent years. My feeling is that the Elephant Kingdom is reaching it’s tolerance limit as a hunted, abused and enslaved species of highly sentient BEings.  Blessings, {~A~]

Representative image

An elephant has trampled its owner to death in Cambodia after tourists begged for the animal to be released from its shackles so they could get a better photo with it.

The 60-year-old bull elephant, called Atork, had his chains released so a group of tourists visiting eastern Cambodia could have their photos taken with it in a more natural environment.

But shortly afterwards, the unattended elephant wandered off into the jungle, away from the village where it was being kept.

The elephant’s owner, 47-year-old Choeung Team, hurried after the animal and into the jungle where villagers found his trampled body next to the animal.

They had become concerned that Mr Choeung had not returned and started started a search.

Although the incident is being investigated the owner’s nephew, Saroeun Naro insisted: ‘Atork used his trunk to beat him and trampled on him.’

He told the Phnom Penh Post that a group of tourists whose nationalities have not been revealed asked Mr Choeung to release the elephant’s shackles so they could take photos of themselves with the animal.

Later, while the group was getting ready for lunch, Atork walked away, with Mr Choeung heading off into the jungle to look for him shortly afterwards.

‘I don’t know what the problem with Atork was,’ said the guide’s nephew.

Maybe he needed a female elephant or he was angry with my uncle.’

Local police officer Norng Chanthea told the paper that the elephant was among others regularly used to transport tourists in the area to show them the ethnic minority’s way of life.

‘The owner was killed by his elephant when it was in rut,’ said Mr Norng, referring a natural hormonal surge also known as musth.

District chief Long Vibol told the paper that villagers had used six elephants over recent years to show tourists around a typical ethnic village.

Ms Jemma Bullock, an official with the Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment, told the Cambodia Daily that Atork had been out on a tour with two other elephants and a group of tourists earlier that day.

Today, the elephant was still on the loose.

Another senior police officer, Touch Yun, said villagers would remain concerned about their safety until the elephant could be caught.

Just last September 55-year-old Pop Sreang was also trampled to death in another district when he tried to recapture an elephant after it had escaped.

Largest Ever Earthquake in Botswana, Purple Skies over India & Mini Ice Age Signs Uptick

As our Sun and Earth descend into a grand solar minimum, mega quakes have always occurred during these lows in solar activity. One indicator that we are repeating this same cycle is to see earthquakes in strange areas of the globe, the North Pole and now the strongest earth quake ever recorded in Botswana and southern Africa. Electrical and atmospheric changes are very apparent now with purple skies, phenomenal electrical discharges and fierce hail in strange locations globally in the wrong season.

Photographer captures a ‘rare’ weather phenomenon as storm creates a violet flash upwards in Western Australia


© Jeff Miles
These stunning photos show the violet stream shooting out from the top of a cloud.

A photographer couldn’t believe his luck when he captured a rare celestial phenomenon creating a breathtaking vision against the night sky. Photographs taken in Australia depict the colourful violet stream shooting out against the deep blue of a night sky behind, while the raging storm lights up the clouds below.

The phenomenon, called ionospheric lightning, occurs at much higher altitudes than normal lightening or storm clouds. Photographer Jeff Miles captured the rare sight near the small town of Pilbara in Western Australia.

Upper atmospheric lightning, or ionospheric lightning, are terms used by experts to refer to a family of short-lived electrical-breakdown phenomena that occur above the altitudes of normal lightning and storm clouds.

He said: ‘This was a mind blowing experience to see with my eyes, never mind research the photos to find out just how rare they are.

‘Gigantic jets have only been captured on camera a handful of times and this night I was lucky enough to see six jets.’

Signs and Portents: Turtle with two heads and six legs found in Chinese pet store

A baby turtle was found to have two heads and six legs among a box of imported turtles

A bizarre video shows a baby turtle with two heads and six legs found in north China’s Shanxi Province.

Footage shows the baby red-eared slider with two heads and six legs as it moves around normally.

Researchers from Shanxi Medicine and Life Science Academy told Chinese media that it was ’caused by genetic mutation, just like a human.’

Mr Wang, a reptile shop owner told Shanxi Metropolis Post that he bought a box of red-eared sliders from a wholesale market on March 29.

Surprisingly he found a baby turtle with two heads and six legs among the other turtles. However, the little red-eared slider can move and eat like just like the others.

‘All the legs are moving and all the eyes are blinking. It eats normally and I believe this baby turtle is about two to three months old,’ Wang told reporters.

The discovery has drawn neighbours to his shop but most of them said: ‘I haven’t seen the turtle with two heads.’

Some suggested water pollution triggered a mutation to this turtle.

A red-eared slider turtle can usually live for 50-70 years.

It is unknown how long the mutant turtle will live for.

Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming have decided to eradicate wolves

“War on Wolves Act” Senators from Midwest and Wyoming introduce bill to strip protections from endangered gray wolves

Senators from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming yesterday introduced the “War on Wolves Act,” a companion bill to legislation introduced last week in the House that would strip federal protections from wolves and allow trophy hunting and trapping of the species in four states.

If the legislation passes both chambers and gets signed by the president, it would hand the fate of wolves in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin and Wyoming over to states whose management wolf plans two federal courts ruled inadequate to securing the species at legally required population levels in absence of Endangered Species Act protections.

In Wyoming, this would allow the state to resume a hostile management program that allowed for unlimited shoot-on-sight killing of wolves across 85 percent of the state. The legislation would further strip citizens of the right to challenge these lethal programs in court. The appeals process of two federal court decisions that restored federal protections to wolves in those four states are still underway. Decisions on those cases are expected any day.

The following is a statement from Marjorie Mulhall, Senior Legislative Counsel at Earthjustice:

“A new congress has resurfaced an old vendetta against imperiled wolves. If this legislation is signed into law, wolves in Wyoming will be subjected to unregulated killing across the vast majority of the state, and even on the borders of Yellowstone National Park numerous legal loopholes will authorize widespread wolf killing
.

Americans widely hailed the return of wolves to the Northern Rockies two decades ago as a triumph of the Endangered Species Act, but now this ‘War on Wolves Act’ would allow for the same unregulated killing that nearly wiped out the species in the first place.
Politicians should not meddle in the science-based listing status of a particular species at any stage, but now is an especially bad time as these cases are still playing out in the courts. We urge those who support the protection of wolves to call their senators and representatives and tell them to vote down this lethal legislation.”

The power structure’s all out assault on countless fronts continues to accelerate. Recent studies state that fully half the adults in America are chronically ill. US invasions of foreign nations continue unabated with troops now being sent into Syria. The US Navy is planning to dump 20,000 tons of heavy metals and explosives into our oceans. The Trump administration is attempting to dismantle any and all forms of environmental protection and monitoring, this is exactly what the geoengineers want. A recent report discloses that the oil industry is benefiting from 5.3 trillion in subsidies annually. The oceans are absorbing so much Co2 that the acidification of the seas is unparalleled over at least the last 300 million years. Massive marine ecosystem collapse is occurring all over the globe. If the oceans die, we die. NBC has just published the following headline, “Climate Engineering: Scary idea should be tried out” (as if the weather warfare assault has not already been going on for over 70 years.  Where is Mr. Trump? He has just made his 9th trip to one of his golf courses since taking office.
Many are beginning to awaken to the peril that is surrounding us from all sides. This being said, the pace of the wake-up must increase if we are to have any chance altering our trajectory before total societal collapse commences. The threats we face are existential, all are needed in the critical effort to sound the alarm. We will sink or swim together.

Plants talk to each other using an internet of fungus


 

It’s an information superhighway that speeds up interactions between a large, diverse population of individuals. It allows individuals who may be widely separated to communicate and help each other out. But it also allows them to commit new forms of crime.

No, we’re not talking about the internet, we’re talking about fungi. While mushrooms might be the most familiar part of a fungus, most of their bodies are made up of a mass of thin threads, known as a mycelium. We now know that these threads act as a kind of underground internet, linking the roots of different plants. That tree in your garden is probably hooked up to a bush several metres away, thanks to mycelia.

The more we learn about these underground networks, the more our ideas about plants have to change. They aren’t just sitting there quietly growing. By linking to the fungal network they can help out their neighbours by sharing nutrients and information – or sabotage unwelcome plants by spreading toxic chemicals through the network. This “wood wide web”, it turns out, even has its own version of cybercrime.

Around 90% of land plants are in mutually-beneficial relationships with fungi. The 19th-century German biologist Albert Bernard Frank coined the word “mycorrhiza” to describe these partnerships, in which the fungus colonises the roots of the plant.

Fungi have been called ‘Earth’s natural internet’

In mycorrhizal associations, plants provide fungi with food in the form of carbohydrates. In exchange, the fungi help the plants suck up water, and provide nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen, via their mycelia. Since the 1960s, it has been clear that mycorrhizae help individual plants to grow.

Fungal networks also boost their host plants’ immune systems. That’s because, when a fungus colonises the roots of a plant, it triggers the production of defense-related chemicals. These make later immune system responses quicker and more efficient, a phenomenon called “priming”. Simply plugging in to mycelial networks makes plants more resistant to disease.

But that’s not all. We now know that mycorrhizae also connect plants that may be widely separated. Fungus expert Paul Stamets called them “Earth’s natural internet” in a 2008 TED talk. He first had the idea in the 1970s when he was studying fungi using an electron microscope. Stamets noticed similarities between mycelia and ARPANET, the US Department of Defense’s early version of the internet.

Film fans might be reminded of James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster Avatar. On the forest moon where the movie takes place, all the organisms are connected. They can communicate and collectively manage resources, thanks to “some kind of electrochemical communication between the roots of trees“. Back in the real world, it seems there is some truth to this.

It has taken decades to piece together what the fungal internet can do. Back in 1997, Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver found one of the first pieces of evidence. She showed that Douglas fir and paper birch trees can transfer carbon between them via mycelia. Others have since shown that plants can exchange nitrogen and phosphorus as well, by the same route.

These plants are not really individuals

Simard now believes large trees help out small, younger ones using the fungal internet. Without this help, she thinks many seedlings wouldn’t survive. In the 1997 study, seedlings in the shade – which are likely to be short of food – got more carbon from donor trees.

“These plants are not really individuals in the sense that Darwin thought they were individuals competing for survival of the fittest,” says Simard in the 2011 documentary Do Trees Communicate? “In fact they are interacting with each other, trying to help each other survive.”

However, it is controversial how useful these nutrient transfers really are. “We certainly know it happens, but what is less clear is the extent to which it happens,” says Lynne Boddy of Cardiff University in the UK.

While that argument rages on, other researchers have found evidence that plants can go one better, and communicate through the mycelia. In 2010, Ren Sen Zeng of South China Agricultural University in Guangzhou found that when plants are attached by harmful fungi, they release chemical signals into the mycelia that warn their neighbours.

Tomato plants can ‘eavesdrop’ on defense responses

Zeng’s team grew pairs of tomato plants in pots. Some of the plants were allowed to form mycorrhizae.

Once the fungal networks had formed, the leaves of one plant in each pair were sprayed with Alternaria solani, a fungus that causes early blight disease. Air-tight plastic bags were used to prevent any above-ground chemical signalling between the plants.

After 65 hours, Zeng tried to infect the second plant in each pair. He found they were much less likely to get blight, and had significantly lower levels of damage when they did, if they had mycelia.

We suggest that tomato plants can ‘eavesdrop’ on defense responses and increase their disease resistance against potential pathogen,” Zeng and his colleagues wrote. So not only do the mycorrhizae allow plants to share food, they help them defend themselves.

It’s not just tomatoes that do this. In 2013 David Johnson of the University of Aberdeen and his colleagues showed that broad beans also use fungal networks to pick up on impending threats – in this case, hungry aphids.

Johnson found that broad bean seedlings that were not themselves under attack by aphids, but were connected to those that were via fungal mycelia, activated their anti-aphid chemical defenses. Those without mycelia did not.

“Some form of signalling was going on between these plants about herbivory by aphids, and those signals were being transported through mycorrhizal mycelial networks,” says Johnson.

But just like the human internet, the fungal internet has a dark side. Our internet undermines privacy and facilitates serious crime – and frequently, allows computer viruses to spread. In the same way, plants’ fungal connections mean they are never truly alone, and that malevolent neighbours can harm them.

For one thing, some plants steal from each other using the internet. There are plants that don’t have chlorophyll, so unlike most plants they cannot produce their own energy through photosynthesis. Some of these plants, such as the phantom orchid, get the carbon they need from nearby trees, via the mycelia of fungi that both are connected to.

Other orchids only steal when it suits them. These “mixotrophs” can carry out photosynthesis, but they also “steal” carbon from other plants using the fungal network that links them.

That might not sound too bad. However, plant cybercrime can be much more sinister than a bit of petty theft.

Plants have to compete with their neighbours for resources like water and light. As part of that battle, some release chemicals that harm their rivals.

This “allelopathy” is quite common in trees, including acacias, sugarberries, American sycamores and several species of Eucalyptus. They release substances that either reduce the chances of other plants becoming established nearby, or reduce the spread of microbes around their roots.

Sceptical scientists doubt that allelopathy helps these unfriendly plants much. Surely, they say, the harmful chemicals would be absorbed by soil, or broken down by microbes, before they could travel far.

But maybe plants can get around this problem, by harnessing underground fungal networks that cover greater distances. In 2011, chemical ecologist Kathryn Morris and her colleagues set out to test this theory.

Marigolds are distinctly unfriendly to their neighbours (Credit: blickwinkel / Alamy)

Morris, formerly Barto, grew golden marigolds in containers with mycorrhizal fungi. The pots contained cylinders surrounded by a mesh, with holes small enough to keep roots out but large enough to let in mycelia. Half of these cylinders were turned regularly to stop fungal networks growing in them.

The team tested the soil in the cylinders for two compounds made by the marigolds, which can slow the growth of other plants and kill nematode worms. In the cylinders where the fungi were allowed to grow, levels of the two compounds were 179% and 278% higher than in cylinders without fungi. That suggests the mycelia really did transport the toxins.

The team then grew lettuce seedlings in the soil from both sets of containers. After 25 days, those grown in the more toxin-rich soil weighed 40% less than those in soil isolated from the mycelia. “These experiments show the fungal networks can transport these chemicals in high enough concentrations to affect plant growth,” says Morris, who is now based at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.

In response, some have argued that the chemicals might not work as well outside the lab. So Michaela Achatz of the Berlin Free University in Germany and her colleagues looked for a similar effect in the wild.

One of the best-studied examples of allelopathy is the American black walnut tree. It inhibits the growth of many plants, including staples like potatoes and cucumbers, by releasing a chemical called jugalone from its leaves and roots.

Achatz and her team placed pots around walnut trees, some of which fungal networks could penetrate. Those pots contained almost four times more jugalone than pots that were rotated to keep out fungal connections. The roots of tomato seedlings planted in the jugalone-rich soil weighed on average 36% less.

Some especially crafty plants might even alter the make-up of nearby fungal communities. Studies have shown that spotted knapweed, slender wild oat and soft brome can all change the fungal make-up of soils. According to Morris, this might allow them to better target rival species with toxic chemicals, by favouring the growth of fungi to which they can both connect.

Animals might also exploit the fungal internet. Some plants produce compounds to attract friendly bacteria and fungi to their roots, but these signals can be picked up by insects and worms looking for tasty roots to eat. In 2012, Morris suggested that the movement of these signalling chemicals through fungal mycelia may inadvertently advertise the plants presence to these animals. However, she says this has not been demonstrated in an experiment.

As a result of this growing body of evidence, many biologists have started using the term “wood wide web” to describe the communications services that fungi provide to plants and other organisms.

“These fungal networks make communication between plants, including those of different species, faster, and more effective,” says Morris. “We don’t think about it because we can usually only see what is above ground. But most of the plants you can see are connected below ground, not directly through their roots but via their mycelial connections.”

The fungal internet exemplifies one of the great lessons of ecology: seemingly separate organisms are often connected, and may depend on each other. “Ecologists have known for some time that organisms are more interconnected and interdependent,” says Boddy. The wood wide web seems to be a crucial part of how these connections form.

Florida recruits ‘snake hunters’ in failing war against the Burmese python


Jenny Staletovich
Miami Herald
Wed, 08 Mar 2017 18:28 UTC

© JENNY STALETOVICH
Wildlife officers (left to right) James Bales, Sergio Najera, and Alexis Del Los Santos captured a 15-foot female Burmese python on Monday. The female was breeding with four other males — scientists call it a breeding ball — when the officers found her. They shot the female and two of the males. The other two escaped.

South Florida water managers may amp up the state’s failing war against the Burmese python with a new weapon: a paid python posse.

On Thursday, the South Florida Water Management District will consider a proposal to hire hunters, paying them by the hour, plus a bonus for every snake killed, as part of a two-month, $175,000 pilot project. Hunters would patrol only district land in Miami-Dade County, which includes the vast water conservation area where remote tree islands offer hiding places perfectly suited for the well-camouflaged snakes.

The district declined to provide more details until after the presentation is made to the governing board.

Controlling the pythons has vexed biologists and wildlife officers who have been outgunned by the slithery invaders, which can lay clutches of up to 50 eggs at a time. The snakes started turning up in the marshes, either dumped by unhappy owners or escapees from breeding facilities, in the 1980s, and by about 2000 were firmly established. In September, state wildlife officers confirmed that pythons had also spread to the Keys after they found hatchlings for the first time.

Over the years, biologists have tested a variety of strategies to contain the snakes, including releasing females outfitted with radio trackers to act as ‘Judas’ snakes, snake-sniffing dogs and an iPhone app that lets people immediately report a snake sighting. This past year, the state hired a pair of Irula tribesmen, whose ancestors helped hunt pythons to extinction in India, to track down snakes. And, while it failed to significantly reduce the number of snakes and was largely meant to enlighten the public, the state’s Python Challenge drew the most attention, with headlines around the world.

The district also happens to employ one of the state’s most prolific snake slayers, Bob Hill, who has killed hundreds of pythons since 2004.

Paying hunters to rid the conservation area of snakes is something that the Miccosukee Tribe, which has a perpetual lease on the land and uses the area for hunting and other cultural purposes, has long sought.

“The only way we are going to solve this problem is with the public help. Of course there will need to be strict controls on access. But I think it’s a great idea,” Truman Duncan, the tribe’s water resources director, wrote in an email. “Our Wildlife Officers only patrol Tribal lands. That leaves the majority of the Everglades with very little protection.”

In January, the tribe’s research coordinator surprised area scientists by saying the tribe was banning all research on its land because the tribe considered the snakes sacred. He told the Miami Herald that a change in leadership led to the decision. But last week, during a meeting of a district advisory committee, Duncan said the claim was untrue and that the coordinator had been let go.

“They are not sacred. The instructions are we are to kill them, not study them,” he said.

The tribe, Duncan said, will now only allow research on its land that does not require releasing snakes. In the last month, tribal wildlife officers have killed as many 10 snakes, including a 15-foot female discovered Monday wrapped in a ‘mating ball’ with four males. Officers killed the female and two of the males, but the other two escaped.

“They’re breeding, that’s the problem,” Duncan said at the meeting. “So kill them, don’t study them.”

Night-time Flashing Anomalys, Incoming Rays of Light, Blood Red Skies and Chemtrail Blanketing. What’s going on over the skys of Hawaii they’re trying to hide?


Lately, there are some very strange things happening in our skies. As I dig deeper into what’s going-on, more clues surface. Here’s the latest video, which appears to tie into the earlier post on Blood Red Sky’s – both video’s were taken around mid-nite.

Over the last two weeks in the evenings, I’ve seen these split-second flashes on several occasions  and wondered where they originated.

Knowing that the Hawaiian Kingdom is one of the area’s where ascension energy’s are the heaviest, one can’t help but wonder if all the chemtraiing is an attempt to buffer and deflect space weather, all in an massive and costly effort to prevent beneficial cosmic energy’s from reaching the Earth’s surface and humanity’s Awakening Collective.

FYI…It costs $250,000 an hour for each chemtrail plane up there spraying us like bugs. Do the math…

Massive Chemtrailing over the Pacific Ocean and the Hawaiian Kingdom. The midnight sky over the Big Island turns Blood-Red. Coincidence?


I live on the big island, last night around mid-night a very strange noise “ripped” thru my house from the outside. My dog began barking and checking every room to find “the intruder”, the only thing left behind was a very strange feeling like…wtf just happened?!

The last few days have had an icky feeling, also coughing and sneezing. Thought it was vog from the volcano. Apparently its something far more sinister affecting our skies and our health. Normally we don’t see much evidence of chemtrailing here, now we’re getting pounded.  The video below also shows “pulsing” over the region. Is it HAARP or something else?

The video at the bottom features a sky anomaly that turned the sky’s over Hawaii blood-red around mid-night on the evening of Feb 27. Are the two events connected, very good question?

Fukushima: First Images Emerge Of Radioactive Salmon In Canada


Bad news for everyone – the first radioactive salmon was found in British Columbia, Canada and there are pictures to prove it. After it was revealed that over a third of the world’s oceans were contaminated from the Fukushima rector’s explosion, a team of researchers from the University of Victoria started investigating and were shocked to find the radioactive samples of salmon. The US west coast is also contaminated and traces of seaborne Cesium 123 (the indicator of Fukushima nuclear contamination) were detected in the ocean waters.first-images-emerge-of-radioactive-salmon-in-canada

Environews reports: WHOI is a crowd-funded science seawater sampling project, which has been monitoring the radioactive plume making its way across the Pacific to America’s west coast, from the demolished Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in eastern Japan.

The researchers collected samples from the shores of Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in January and February last year and conducted tests which revealed traces of radioactive Cesium 123.

After more and more reports of contamination started appearing everything was clear, it was just a matter of time when the sea life will become contaminated as well. Last month researchers at the Fukushima InFORM project in Canada led by University of Victoria chemical oceanographer Jay Cullen tested several samples of sockeye salmon from Okanagan Lake in British Columbia and the results came positive for Cesium 134.

But this isn’t the first reported case of contamination far from the waters in Fukushima. There have been numerous reports, mostly published in alternative media outlets but there haven’t been any tangible data that indicate radioactive contamination of salmon in Canada thus far.

It’s not a surprise if we consider the fact that contamination from the Fukushima explosion reached the coasts of US and Canada within days of the explosion, and who knows where else it has circled, influenced by tides and currents. Radioactive iodine 131 was also found in municipal water supplies in places like Pennsylvania and Massachusetts shortly after the initial Fukushima explosion.

According to the tests, the samples from the Oregon coast measured around 0.3 becquerels per cubic meter for cesium 134.This level of radiation was deemed safe and “not a risk to humans or the environment”  by multiple researchers in both the US and Canada. And as with everything else, the cover up was successful since all major media outlets like NBC, the New York Post, USA Today, and even The Inquisitr conveyed their opinion and reported there’s nothing for us to worry. But we should know better – there’s no such thing as safe amount of radiation for living organisms! Every exposure to radiation, no matter how small, increases our risk for cancer and other serious medical conditions!

People Want To Shoot Hibernating Bear Families — And The Government Just Voted To Let Them


“What the House did today should shock the conscience of every animal lover in America.”

Mother bears hibernating with their cubs and wolves raising pups in their dens may no longer be protected from a hunter’s rifle.

The lives of countless bear and wolf families are hanging in the balance today because the U.S. House of Representatives just voted to overturn a ban on cruel hunting tactics that previously protected animals on some of the most treasured wildlife refuges in America.

On 76 million acres of federal refuges in Alaska, hunters will be permitted to enter dens where vulnerable bear families are hibernating and kill them if the resolution becomes law. They will also be able to shoot entire wolf families raising young pups if the Senate and President agree with the vote.

“What the House did today should shock the conscience of every animal lover in America,” Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), said on Thursday. “If the Senate and President concur, we’ll see wolf families killed in their dens, bears chased down by planes or suffering for hours in barbaric steel-jawed traps or snares.”

The overturning of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) ban would also allow hunters to lure animals with food and shoot them at point-blank range.

Even people in favor of hunting applauded the ban when it was issued. “Inhumane hunting methods have caused the overkilling of native Alaskan predators; this rule takes a balanced approach allowing for traditional, permit-based hunting,” then-Representative Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) said last year after the cruel practices were banned.

Now it’s unclear why the push to overturn the ban was introduced in the first place, as a 2016 poll of Alaska voters showed that most agreed that those practices should be banned. Alaska’s Representative Don Young (R-AK), who has trapped animals in the past, introduced the measure, known as H.J. Resolution 69, anyway.

Congress voted 225 to 193 in favor of it on Thursday, some citing states’ rights as the reason for their vote in favor, despite the resolution being about federal lands.

“Special interest groups are quietly working at the federal and state level to lay the groundwork for federally managed lands to be handed over wholesale to state or even private ownership,” Dan Ashe, then-FWS director, wrote last year in an op-ed. “Unfortunately, without the protections of federal law and the public engagement it ensures, this heritage is incredibly vulnerable.”

The Dodo asked Rep. Young for a comment as to why he would push to allow these practices when so many voters oppose them. His office did not immediately respond.

There’s still time to save wolves and bears from cruelty: Contact your senators and ask them to vote against this resolution.

Octopuses are taking over the oceans, and no one knows why


 

A new study published in the journal Current Biology has revealed some startling statistics — a group of researchers from the University of Adelaide have found that since the 1950s, the population of cephalopods (octopus, squid, and cuttlefish) in the world’s oceans has exploded. What makes this truly curious is the fact that climate change, overfishing, and ocean acidification have caused the numbers of many fish and shellfish species to plummet during the same period.

Scientists aren’t completely sure what’s causing these tentacled creatures to proliferate so widely, but they have a few theories. One idea is that humans have killed off large numbers of predatory fish that would normally compete with the cephalopods for food. But it’s also possible that these species are simply better equipped to deal with rising ocean temperatures than some other ocean animals.

octopus-01-lead-120x120The lead author of the study, Zoe Doubleday, told Gizmodo that the success of these species can largely be attributed to rapid population turnover rates, saying, “Cephalopods tend to boom and bust—they’re called the weeds of the sea. If environmental conditions are good, they can rapidly exploit those conditions because they grow so fast.”

Unfortunately, this isn’t all good news for the species involved. octopus-01-120x120Researchers warn that if the number of cephalopods rises too high, the animals may be forced to resort to cannibalism due to lack of food. As they take over larger portions of the marine ecosystem, they may also be harvested in greater numbers and become a more important staple in the human diet. Either way, the cephalopod population boom is likely to be a mixed blessing for the species involved.

WAGNER, SOUTH DAKOTA — In a letter sent via overnight courier, Tribal Chair Robert Flying Hawk, Yankton Sioux Tribe, is requesting that President Donald Trump release all correspondence and communication pertaining to the President’s decisions that led him to sign the presidential memoranda relating to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

In the letter, dated January 27, 2017, Flying Hawk cites being dismayed that President Trump signed the executive actions shortly after assuming the presidency.

He writes:

Dear President Trump:

On behalf of the Yankton Sioux Tribe, or Ihanktonwan Nation, I respectfully call upon you to immediately release and make public all correspondence and communications received by your office pertaining to the Memorandum on Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Memorandum on Construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline issued January 24, 2017.

The Yankton Sioux Tribe, whose treaty and ancestral lands are under threat by these projects, is dismayed by your executive actions taken just four days after you assumed office and seven days after the Army Department’s issuance of a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement in Connection with the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The memoranda appear to have been drafted not by the U.S. Department of Justice or White House counsel, but by the attorneys for the pipeline companies themselves. In light of your decision not to relinquish your business interests prior to taking the oath of office, our Nation has grave concerns that these memoranda serve to fulfill commitments to your personal business interests rather than adherence to the United States’ long-standing trust responsibility to Indian tribes.

As a matter of transparency, and in fulfillment of your trust responsibility as the President of the United States, our Nation calls upon you to release the afore-mentioned correspondence and communications forthwith and without reservation.

Sincerely, Robert Flying Hawk, Chairman Business and Claims Committee

Shailene Woodley on Malia Obama’s Presence at “Sundance Standing Rock Solidarity Event” Against DAPL


s09_malia

 

Sundance Film Festival has been abuzz this year with sightings of former first daughter Malia Obama. We speak to actress Shailene Woodley about how Malia attended a Sundance event in solidarity with Standing Rock against the Dakota Access pipeline.

AMY GOODMAN: Do you think President Obama could have done more to stop this from happening, done it earlier and been more forceful in really stopping the pipeline from moving forward?

SHAILENE WOODLEY: It’s hard to say. You know, as a citizen, of course, I would say that. But I’m not—I’m not in the White House. I don’t know what obstacles that man was up against. I don’t know what resistance he was up against. And so, obviously, again, as a citizen, I would love to say, yes, I wish he had stopped this in 2014, when it was originally proposed to the tribe and when the Army Corps of Engineers originally ignored the tribes—actually, you know, according to law, they were meant to meet with the tribe multiple times, and that didn’t happen. So, in 2014, I wish Obama had done something, but I don’t know, actually, that he could have. So, it’s kind of a—it’s hearsay for me.

AMY GOODMAN: Were you surprised to see Malia Obama yesterday at the protest?

SHAILENE WOODLEY: It was amazing to see Malia. I saw her last night when we did the event with Chairman Dave Archambault. And it was incredible to see her there. Also—

AMY GOODMAN: President Obama’s daughter.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: President Obama’s daughter. Also, to witness a human being and a woman coming into her own outside of her family and outside of the attachments that this country has on her, but someone who’s willing to participate in democracy because she chooses to, because she recognizes, regardless of her last name, that if she doesn’t participate in democracy, there will be no world for her future children.

AMY GOODMAN: That’s actor and activist Shailene Woodley. When we come back, Annie Leonard of Greenpeace.
