We have four independent and well respected bodies; The New York Academy Of Sciences, the ECRR, the UN and OCHA to choose from when it comes to helping us figure out from an unbiased and neutral point of view, how many people died or were negatively affected due to the Chernobyl radioactive catastrophe. These organizations represent a global network of doctors, biologists, and nuclear experts who are NOT associated with the nuclear industry. They are all more or less in agreement. 


They state that based on extensive research from the time Chernobyl melted through and exploded to now, that there are between 1 MILLION DEATHS (http://youtu.be/f4uVgMp4Ycsand/or 9 MILLION VICTIMS up to around 2001/2004….(See links below) ‘Victims’ includes those who have cancer, deformities, one of 2,400 genetic diseases, etc…

Now we can go over to the nuclear industry and their marketing arms such as the IAEA or the nuclear industry revolving door NRC. This is where people routinely go from the IAEA/NRC to the nuclear industry or the other way around. The mission statement of the IAEA is that they are marketing and promoting nuclear power. Would you trust a salesperson to tell you anything about something as dangerous as nuclear radiation? These 'experts' say that only a couple people died and almost no one got sick or injured, from the Chernobyl accident to present day.

The nuclear industry further makes the bold, outrageous claim that low level radiation affects NO ONE, EVER. Further, they also claim internal radiation ingested via water, food or dust from nuclear accidents has NO EFFECT. All of the scientific and medical studies pointed to by  the New York Academy of Sciences, the
 ECRR, the UN and OCHA about low level radiation make this claim look astoundingly laughable. 
The nuclear industry also claims that ‘hot particles’ have ZERO effect or do not exist at all. (
http://youtu.be/HIOfjuYWxl4) . When it comes to explaining the 80-85% rate of unhealthy infants as well as elevated death rate around Chernobyl, they have no explanation, other than all of these unhealthy women, infants are others  are ONLY due to ‘stress’, worry, and/or not smiling enough.

Who do you tend to believe more? The salesperson/marketing organization in charge of selling the item that may be dangerous or deadly, or someone outside the industry that does not have any profit motive? Which one would have more or less bias, or built in conflict of interest?

The other thing about the number of total deaths around Chernoby issue is that this total deaths and victims number is GROWING year by year, not shrinking. When one watches the present day interviews with health professionals in the area and reviews the scientific and medical studies, the number of victims (those negatively affected or dying) is actually growing and getting worse year to year, not the opposite. So these are ‘old’ numbers. They are obsolete.. No one has updated them since they came out. For example, the ECRR estimates that Chernobyl will have killed 1.4 million people by 2030.

UN Secretary General Dr Kofi Anan said that the “consequences of Chernobyl do not fade away, but actually grow over time and in many ways, become more intense.” Dr Anan and D. Zupka, UN representative of UN humanitarian affairs UN – OCHA agree and say that there are 9 million victims from Chernobyl as of 2001, and the tragedy is only beginning. This calamity will be with us for generations to come. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8746168177815160826&hl=en

A Call to Action

 

December 6, 2008 - Celebrating a New Day for the Earth

Friday, November 14, 2008

To Friends of the Climate Crisis Coalition,

On Saturday, December 6, 2008, concerned citizens around the world will be participating in the fourth annual Global Day of Climate Action. This important day will be midway through the annual UN climate conference, taking place this year in Poznan, Poland. The Climate Crisis Coalition's international ally, The Global Climate Campaign, is synchronizing demonstrations around the world in as many places as possible - to call on world leaders to take urgent action on climate change. As in previous years, CCC is calling on friends and allies to partake in any way they can.

This year, actions in the U.S. are particularly pertinent because the U.N. conference is going to set the parameters for the all-important post-Kyoto treaty to be signed in December, 2009 in Copenhagen. And with the hoped-for dawning of a new era in Washington, this will represent a last chance for the U.S. to clearly reverse its obstructionist role and set the tone so that a significant, strong and binding treaty can be negotiated. The perils our planet faces demand no less.

CCC will again provide an online network where people can find out about events taking place across the country and groups and individuals can register new events. We only have three weeks to put this together, but with our all-consuming elections behind us, and growing number of citizens eager to keep the President-elect Obama and the new Congress focused on the climate crisis, CCC is convinced that it is not too late for significant actions to take place across the U.S. on or around December 6th. Many are all ready in the works.

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Rallies, teach-ins, forums, vigils, movie showings and other gatherings of all types are encouraged. CCC will publicize and report on these actions through postings at the Climate Action: 12/6/08 site.

 

The Issues

CCC is urging participants to concentrate on four demands.

Binding and enforceable climate legislation in the U.S within the first 100 days of the new Congress that will begin to sharply curtail greenhouse-gas emissions. The U.S. must also exert leadership toward reaching a similarly effective post-Kyoto treaty.

Reduced levels of atmospheric CO2. Our allies at 350.org, inspired by climate scientist James Hansen and author Bill McKibben, are making a compelling case for a drastic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, not just to level off atmospheric concentrations that are already far to high, but to reduce them to a level where the earth and life as we know it has a fighting chance. Top climate scientists have come up with the number of 350 parts per million: that must be our goal and our rallying cry.

100% carbon-free electricity within 10 years. Al Gore has issued a five-part plan to repower America with a commitment to producing 100 percent of our electricity from carbon-free sources within 10 years. This is a goal that must be embraced by all.

Pricing carbon pollution will create powerful incentives for our economy to rely upon energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, both of which will reduce emissions, create green jobs and promote economic and social equity. This involves gradually-increasing carbon taxes on the use of coal, oil and gas, with revenues used to reduce other taxes or distributed directly to individuals on an equal basis. Any of this revenue directed toward developing green energy must be for truly renewable sources - excluding nuclear power and 'clean' coal.

CCC and its allies are planning a major petitioning campaign to Congress and the Obama Administration requesting that equitable carbon pricing be an essential component of a new comprehensive climate bill that needs to be enacted in the first 100 days of the 111th Congress. The website where groups and individuals can support this effort, sign the petition, and send letters to Washington will be launched on November 20th!

We now have remarkable opportunities at a unique juncture in our history. Any help that you can offer would be most appreciated. Please let us know by return email if you can assist with the December 6th Global Day of Action or with our Carbon Pricing Initiative. And, please click here to make a contribution which would now be especially appreciated.

Together, with allies around the world, we can make December 6th, 2008 an event that helps move us toward a New Day for the Earth.

"World Embargo against the US will be short lived.‏
From: MICHAEL SHELLEY
 
 
Sending this to you as this is something that directly affects all of us, and all mankind. Immediately it has to do with the intransigence of Bush to yield on allowing the new banking system to go into place as he has aggressively put up road blocks at every opportunity. A bigger picture is that the policies and practices of Bush and his predecessors have pushed the world economy to the brink of total collapse and he has to be stopped. Not to stop Bush and arrest him and Cheney would result in the loss of life by war and starvation of billions of people.  The information behind this will be in the mainstream news eventually. 

 The relevant text should read: 'This morning the "world", led by the IMF, has notified all countries that a worldwide EMBARGO against the United States BY Canada, the United Kingdom and China will go into effect at 1.00pm EST (today). 10/02/07?

I CONFIRM that this embargo DID go into effect. I asked whether the IMF had released its announcement and I have been told that 'it's going through the United Nations'.
 
The breach between the US and the UK that I predicted is now complete.

 
I then said: That means something's going on behind the scenes. The AAA source said: They probably won't release it until after the arrests.
 
 
Everything was ready for the payment this morning: BUSH PERSONALLY ORDERED IT TO BE ABORTED. HENCE THE EMBARGO actually went into effect. These events were triggered as a DIRECT RESPONSE to our latest report, I have been told.      However, that is just an excuse (although also true).
 
We have these people on the hook and they are at the very end of their rope.

 
You may be interested to know that I applied for accreditation to the IMF Annual Meetings today (as I have done most years since 1977) and that I received approval IN THE SPACE OF LESS THAN ONE HOUR, which is completely unprecedented. It normally takes many days, if not a week. The text is as follows:


Dear Mr. Christopher Story, We are pleased to confirm your accreditation for the 2007 Annual Meetings of the IMF/WBG. The date, time and location of where to collect your credentials will be announced at a later date on the IMF Meetings web-site, under Information for Journalists. Journalists must come in person to pick-up their press badge and must present press identification bearing a photograph. Please visit the IMF website
http://www.imf.org/external/am/2007/pressinf.htm
< FONT face=Arial> regularly for the most up-to-date information. Thank you!
 
 
PS:
I didn't know what to use for a subject line but the point it includes is that as soon as the current leadership in the US is removed from power there will be no need for an embargo.

On the economy, there is a 1000 word well done objective and well supported analysis out of Europe describing how the US dollar, a fiat currency that became currency reserve for the world effectively undermined both the US and world economies. Reply if you would like a copy.

Others have done reports more focused on how the US was systematically undermined in the same way. This was by design - but all that kind of information is expected to come out over the coming weeks. The good news of all this is that wars will stop, there is no terrorism threat that is not created by government intelligence agencies.

Troops come home, peace to be declared, bank debts forgiven, no more IRS, precious metals backed currencies and dictators step down world wide to be replaced by people who will serve the people.

By Grace, in freedom, we have a new beginning."

This is what was emailed to me... is this a scam for money, a myth or is something actually happening that is not in the news?

A just war? Hardly
BY NOAM CHOMSKY

9 May 2006

http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticleNew.asp?section=opinion&xfile=data/opinion/2006/may/opinion_may34.xml

Click on link to read this excellent article.

"Concepts aside, actions in the real world all too often reinforce the maxim of Thucydides that "The strong do as they can, while the weak suffer what they must" — which is not only indisputably unjust, but at the present stage of human civilisation, a literal threat to the survival of the species.

In his highly praised reflections on just war, Michael Walzer describes the invasion of Afghanistan as "a triumph of just war theory," standing alongside Kosovo as a "just war." Unfortunately, in these two cases, as throughout, his arguments rely crucially on premises like "seems to me entirely justified," or "I believe" or "no doubt."
Facts are ignored, even the".... follow link above.
