Japan Planning to Release Over a Million Tons of Radioactive Water into Sea from Fukushima Power Plant

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

The Japanese government is campaigning to win support for a plan to pump more than a million tons of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean.

Although the government has not formally announced the plan, it has become increasingly clear that it intends to go ahead with a step that will cause anger and anxiety both in Japan and among the country’s east Asian neighbors.

Tokyo Electric has collected nearly 1.3 million tons of contaminated water from cooling pipes used to keep fuel cores from melting since the plant was destroyed in 2011 by the earthquake and tsunami that hit eastern Japan.

Congress gives $4 million to combat climate-change with weather-modification via aerosols

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

The media portray Americans who believe in chemtrails and weather-modification as tinfoil hat-wearing “conspiracy theorists,” as if there are no real conspiracies and ignoring the inconvenient fact that it was the CIA who concocted the label “conspiracy theory” for the express purpose of discrediting by denigrating skeptics of the official version of the Kennedy assassination.

North America’s Bird Population Is Collapsing – Nearly 3 Billion Birds Have Been Wiped Out Since 1970

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

All around us, our world is literally in a state of collapse, but most people don’t seem to care.  I spend much of my time writing about the inevitable collapse of our economic and financial systems, but they are only one part of the story.  These days, millions upon millions of us are spending countless hours in this “virtual world” that we have created, and that is preventing many of us from understanding what is really going on in “the real world”.  Where I live, I can literally keep the doors wide open for hours without worrying about bugs coming in, because insect populations are disappearing at a pace that is frightening.  They are calling it “the insect apocalypse”, and some scientists are warning that they could all be gone in 100 years.

Hacking The Planet: The Climate Engineering Reality

from Humans Are Free:

In the mid 1940’s global powers made the decision to intervene in Earth’s climate and life support systems without the knowledge or consent of populations.

The weather makers tell us their programs are a form of mitigation for global warming, but is this the truth?

Is climate engineering / solar radiation management helping to cool the planet?

Why Big Oil Will Become Big Green

by Marin Katusa, Katusa Research:

On June 9, 2017, the shareholders of oil major ExxonMobil enjoyed an incredible milestone. The company paid a quarterly dividend of 77 cents per share.

This dividend payment was larger than the one ExxonMobil paid to shareholders at the same time as the year before, and marked the 35th consecutive year ExxonMobil increased its dividend payment.

When you consider how the brutal competition of capitalism makes it difficult for most companies to even pay dividends – let alone steadily increase them for years year – you realize 35 consecutive years of dividend raises is an impressive accomplishment.

Because of dividend records like this, many investors view the dividends paid by ExxonMobil and its Big Oil peers such as Chevron, Shell, and BP (British Petroleum) as sacrosanct… income streams you can count on during retirement. Big Oil has paid reliable dividends for so long that many investors see their Big Oil shares like they would grandma’s ring or the family farm.

And you read it here first: If Big Oil companies want to be seen as steady dividend payers for years into the future, they are going to need to become Big Green. They are going to have to get into solar, wind, and hydroelectric energy in a big way.

I know many will view my suggestion as ludicrous. But after you review the data and facts as I have, I’m confident you’ll agree.

An Unstoppable Trend in the World’s Biggest Business

The business of providing energy to power our cars, trucks, airplanes, factories, and homes is the biggest business in the world. And it’s changing in a big way.

In the year 2000, renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, etc.) provided 1.4{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the world’s power. Since then, renewable energy’s share of the global power market has increased to 7.5{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}. It’s a stunning share increase of more than 400{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}.

The chart below shows the global market share of renewable power since 1990.

Renewables are grabbing more market share because they are getting cheaper. As I’ve written many times in the past few years, the cost of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power have plummeted in the past decade. In many areas, unsubsidized solar and wind power is now cheaper than power generated by burning fossil fuels. Plus, the political pressure to move from fossil fuels to renewables is incredible. It’s not going away.

The world isn’t going to stop using oil for a long time. There will money to be made in oil for a long time. However, the best days of fossil fuels are in the past. The world’s largest oil companies know it. But that doesn’t mean Big Oil has to shrivel up and die. Smart oil executives don’t see themselves as just in “the oil business.” They see themselves as being in the “energy business.” If that energy comes from oil, natural gas, solar, or wind, then so be it. Smart oil executives know the transition from dirty energy to clean energy will be the biggest strategic shift in their market in the coming decades.

Big Oil has ignored renewable energy for a long time. But we’re starting to see a shift in its thinking.

***For example, in 2016, the French supermajor, Total SA, acquired green energy storage manufacturer Saft for $1.1 billion.

***Statoil, Norway’s National Oil Company, partnered with Alterra Power Corp and the National Energy Authority of Iceland to drill the deepest geothermal well in history.

***And perhaps most significantly, the European oil giant Royal Dutch Shell is looking into buying Equis Energy, Asia’s largest green power producer. Equis Energy has put itself up for sale and Shell and a handful of large pension funds are evaluating it. There is no formal offer from Shell yet, but I believe Shell will make a bid. I think it’s a savvy business move. Buying Equis Energy would provide significant perpetual cash flow and dividend potential.

Equis Energy is a private company, so financial details are scarce. At the project level, Equis Energy has assets in Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand, Australia and India. Total operational green power capacity is 4.4 gigawatts. This is enough electricity to power over a million homes.

Furthermore, Equis Energy has a robust pipeline with an additional 6.7 gigawatts of development stage green power production capacity. Using industry average capacity factors and efficiency rates, Equis Energy likely generates between 10 to 12 terawatt hours (TWh) of green power.

Its reported that the purchase price being considered for Equis Energy is $5 billion. This yields an implied valuation of approximately $440 per MWh of green power production. Compared to industry averages, this is a high multiple.

Why Green Energy Offers Safety and Stability

Big Oil executives have to make multi-billion dollar capital allocation decisions that have 15 – 30 year time frames. Their projects are among the biggest and most expensive projects on Earth. They have to think very big and very long-term.

When it comes to investing $5 billion in an oil and gas project, oil executives face many unknowns. What kind of engineering challenges does the project present? How will electric cars affect future oil demand? How will developing nations like China and India affect future oil demand? How will plunging costs of solar and wind energy affect demand for natural gas (which is also used heavily in power generation). When you’re putting billions of dollars to work, the less unknowns, the better.

Amidst Global Warming Hysteria, NASA Expects Global Cooling

by Mish Shedlock, The Maven:

Those promoting CO2 as the reason for global warming are hucksters and those taken in by hucksters.

“We see a cooling trend,” said Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center. “High above Earth’s surface, near the edge of space, our atmosphere is losing heat energy. If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold.”

Unstable Planet: Anchorage, Alaska Is Devastated By A Giant 7.0 Earthquake – Is The West Coast Next?

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

We just got more evidence that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.  On Friday a magnitude 7.0 earthquake destroyed homes, ripped apart roads and destroyed infrastructure all throughout Anchorage, Alaska.  According to the USGS, the earthquake hit at 8:29 AM and the epicenter was approximately 7 miles north of Anchorage.  That quake was followed by a highly destructive magnitude 5.7 aftershock just a little while later.  Alaska Governor Bill Walker has declared a state of emergency, and the entire region is in a state of chaos.  Unfortunately, as global seismic activity continues to increase, more quakes like this are inevitable.  Like Alaska, the entire west coast of the United States sits directly along the “Ring of Fire”, and many have warned that “the Big One” is coming sooner rather than later.

The Great Zero Carbon Criminal Conspiracy

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

The globalist Davos World Economic Forum is proclaiming the necessity of reaching a worldwide goal of “net zero carbon” by 2050. This for most sounds far in the future and hence largely ignored. Yet transformations underway from Germany to the USA, to countless other economies, are setting the stage for creation of what in the 1970’s was called the New International Economic Order. In reality it is a blueprint for a global technocratic totalitarian corporativism, one that promises huge unemployment, deindustrialization and economic collapse by design. Consider some background.

TERRAFORMING has begun: “Global dimming” is a plot to EXTERMINATE humanity by terraforming the atmosphere with SMOG pollution, killing Earth’s food crops and unleashing ecological collapse

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

Now we come to the end game for humanity. This is it, folks: They have a plan to collapse global food production, kill off over 90% of the human race, devastate natural ecosystems and pollute the Earth’s atmosphere… and it’s all being sold to you under the banner of “environmentalism.”

The scheme is called “global dimming,” and it’s a dangerous geoengineering plot to spray billions of tons of smog into the atmosphere so that pollution levels would block sunlight and halt global warming. This is literally what the mad environmental scientists are now proposing — the very same people who have, for years, claimed that “chemtrails” are a conspiracy theory and don’t exist. Now, all of a sudden, they want to chemtrail the entire planet in order to “save” us all from global warming.
