Nuclear Issues & Fukushima

Joining Lisa Garr (email) is fungi authority Paul Stamets, who'll discuss his discovery on how to use mushrooms to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants, catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds, as well as control insect populations, and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and bodies. First hour guest, Dr. Marilyn Wedge, family therapist and ADHD expert, will discuss how powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed to treat childhood hyperactivity but rarely help.

From 6-10pm PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time returns to 12/18/01 when Whitley Strieber discussed the book he and Art co-wrote together The Coming Global Superstorm and Brendan Cook and Barbara McBeath shared eerie EVP recordings. Listen here.

Nuclear Issues & Fukushima

Show Archive
Date: Monday - January 6, 2014
Host: George Noory
Guests: Scott Portzline, Arnie Gundersen, Kevin Kamps, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

Three nuclear energy experts (Scott Portzline, Arnie Gundersen, and Kevin Kamps) in separate hours, discussed the status of the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, the cover-ups of scientific data, as well as general issues about nuclear power, and nuclear waste. Last week there was a spate of false reports about Fukushima's Unit 3 having new radiation plumes of steam coming from it, and that people living on the West Coast should prepare to evacuate, Portzline detailed. While this was a hoax, the climate of uncertainty around Fukushima has been created by the lack of truth from TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company), as well as the US government, and the International Atomic Energy Agency, he commented. "In my opinion, Fukushima is a level 8 on the international nuclear event scale, (the levels normally only go up to 7)," as there are multiple sources of radiation, and the situation requires international assistance and monitoring, Portzline continued.

Gundersen concurred on the direness of the Fukushima situation-- in contrast to Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, the "spigot" isn't turned off yet, and radiation continues to leak into the Pacific Ocean. Fish are picking up extraordinarily high levels of radioactive materials, and Gundersen said he would not eat fish that comes from the West Coast. In Japan, "the epidemiological data that will develop over the next 30 years [will show that] somewhere between 100,000 and 1 million new cancers will develop as a result of this," but the nuclear industry can hide behind the fact that a high percentage of people get cancer anyway, he pointed out. Gunderson stressed the importance of stopping the groundwater contamination, and suggested building a trench of zeolite to absorb the radiation surrounding the plant.

Kamps cited that 72,000 gallons a day of radioactively contaminated water is flowing into the ocean, and that really adds up over nearly three years of time since the accident. Making matters worse, Unit 4 at Fukushima could be on the brink of collapse, he added. Some countries such as Germany are phasing out nuclear power entirely after the lessons of Fukushima and Chernobyl, he said. As an alternative, wind power has a lot of potential to be tapped, and the first offshore floating wind turbines were just installed in the Gulf of Maine, which could provide as much electricity as five atomic reactors, Kamps asserted.

Flu Shots & Vaccines Update

First hour guest, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny shared updates on flu shots and vaccines. Reacting to a report about a UK teenager who began falling asleep 30 times a day after she took a flu vaccine, Tenpenny noted that the Pandemrix injection the girl took was never approved in the United States. The adjuvant (ingredient used to stimulate an immune response) in this particular vaccine is a highly inflammatory oil that could have caused an autoimmune type reaction to the brain, she explained. She also noted that flu shots only work about 16% of the time, and that one of the newer brands called Flucelvax is actually made from canine kidney cells.

News segment guests: Mitch Battros, Stanton Friedman

Plane's Near Miss with a UFO

The pilot of an A320 Airbus plane has reported a near miss with a UFO near Heathrow Airport. The incident, which occurred in July 2013, was said to involve a metallic-looking "rugby ball"-shaped object which passed within just a few feet of the passenger jet. Aviation authorities investigating the sighting were unable to provide an earthly explanation. More here.
