April 22nd is officially Earth Day. Everyday needs to be Earth Day.
NASA Earth-Rise Christmas Eve 1968
The human population of the earth has more than doubled since the Earth-Rise picture was taken in 1968, making caretaking of the earth and human birth control even more urgent.
Schedelsche Weltchronik or Nuremberg Chronicle Date 1493
Here in an old, old tradition from thousands of years ago, written almost 2,000 years ago, one sees much biological truth. The human body reflects the earth and water itself. If you poison the earth and the water with lethal radionuclides, humans and other life takes up these man-made radionuclides:
Genesis 2:6 “But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” In this context, nuclear power appears to be “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
Scientists keep discovering that radioactive materials, which are routinely discharged throughout the entire nuclear fuel chain: mining, enrichment, nuclear power stations, medical facilities, as well as upkeep and testing of nuclear weapons, are more deadly than initially thought. Based on the Oct. 2015 multi-government funded study of nuclear workers, cancer risk appears around 15 times worse than even BEIR VII (ca 2005) thought, maybe even higher: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2015/12/19/another-look-at-the-recent-low-dose-radiation-exposure-study-inworks Experts have repeatedly found out that the risk of cataracts and heart-disease due to radiation exposure is also greater than thought (or admitted).
Clustered DNA damage, which is (nearly) impossible to properly repair, is considered a signature of ionizing radiation: “clustered DNA damage sites, which may be considered as a signature of ionising radiation, underlie the deleterious biological consequences of ionising radiation…ionising radiation creates significant levels of clustered DNA damage, including complex double-strand breaks (DSB)” See: “Biological Consequences of Radiation-induced DNA Damage: Relevance to Radiotherapy“, by M.E. Lomax et. al. Clinical Oncology 25 (2013) 578-585. “The formation of clustered damage distinguishes ionising radiation-induced damage from normal endogenous damage: https://cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp5-euratom/docs/non_dsb_lesions_projrep_en.pdf More here: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2016/12/24/on-the-unique-dna-damage-done-by-ionizing-radiation-nuclear-materials-and-on-metting-hultgren-et-al-misleading-the-us-congress-in-this-matter/
And, yet, the US government is considering allowing privately owned Holtec to bury high level nuclear waste in New Mexico. The deadline is tomorrow to register for the teleconference. The written comment deadline is end May. The Holtec project would involve cross country transport and burial of first 500 and then ultimately 10,000 high level nuclear waste cans (Chernobyls in a can), including spent Mox fuel: https://adamswebsearch2.nrc.gov/webSearch2/view?AccessionNumber=ML18107A144.

Already EnergySolutions, owned by Trump large donor-fundraiser, Doug Kimmelman, is destroying the earth by burying long-lived radioactive waste, which will inevitably come back up, sooner or later. Kimmelman is a Goldman Sachs “alumnus”- “investment banker”.

EnergySolutions Barnwell site in South Carolina
The Sierra club has filed suit over Energy Solutions subsidiary Chem-Nuclear’s operation of the Barnwell site: “The Augusta Chronicle, April 19 at 1:00pm ·
A Sierra Club lawyer told the court the 47-year-old state-owned dump has not been run properly. They want Chem-Nuclear to use better disposal practices to prevent rain from falling into the open pits where waste is buried.” https://www.facebook.com/TheAugustaChronicle/posts/10155601910753412
“Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%“. http://water.usgs.gov/edu/propertyyou.html
“About 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, and the oceanshold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. Water also exists in the air as water vapor, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in you…” http://water.usgs.gov/edu/earthhowmuch.html
“Phytoplankton absorb energy from the Sun and nutrients from the water to produce their own food. In the process of photosynthesis, phytoplankton release molecular oxygen (O2) into the water. It is estimated that between 50% — 85% of the world’s oxygen is produced via phytoplankton photosynthesis” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytoplankton
Manmade ionizing radiation is more dangerous than UV ionizing radiation. NASA tells us that “overexposure to UV-B impairs the productivity of phytoplankton in aquatic ecosystems.” http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/UVB/uvb_radiation2.php Thus, it appears clear that man-made ionizing radiation would have a negative impact on phytoplankton.
The US government (Drake-LANL, 1996) study, “Recovery of Tritium from Tritiated Waste Water Cost-Effectiveness Analysis” was written by a physicist. Tritiated water is radioactive water. His study opens up by saying: “Tritiated water is many 1000s of times more biologically toxic than tritium gas due to our water-based body’s propensity to incorporate tritiated water into its very makeup,” whereas currently the nuclear industry pretends that it is safe because it is dispersed throughout the body, even though this runs counter to logic. He does not mean evaporated tritiated water, which is also very dangerous upon inhalation and skin absorption, but rather pure tritium gas. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/recovery-of-tritium-from-tritiated-waste-water-cost-effectiveness-analysis/
Dr. Ian Fairlie, expert in radiation biology, has pointed out: “the range of the beta particle emitted by the tritium is low. It doesn’t travel very far. But inside the cell, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t have to travel very far. It’s right there. A good comparison is that the average diameter of a DNA molecule is about half a micron. And that happens to coincide with the range of a beta particle from tritium, which is about 0.6 microns.” (April 18, 2016, Dr. Ian Fairlie: http://www.fairewinds.org/podcast//tritium-expos )

Today is Earth Day. Today is Sunday. Everyday needs to be Earth Day and both Sun-day and Sunday. Before preachers became so money-obsessed, they used to preach sermons about living out your faith everyday of the week and not just on Sunday. The Bible says that people should be caretakers of the earth and not destroyers of the earth. The only safe nuclear power is the sun and so everyday needs to be Sun Day.
