Nuclear Power Risks or How To Stop Worrying And Love The Atom
by Ian R Thorpe.

The Greens, fear and panic merchants, cap and trade profiteers, carbon warmageddonists and usual suspects have been in a funk about the Fukushima nuclear power station accident, demanding we shut down nuclear generation as well as coal mines and oil wells. But the lesson of Fukushima is we should stop worrying and learn to love the atom.

There are a group of people in every English speaking society who call themselves 'greens' 'progressives', 'liberals' and humanists who are determined it seems to shut down western civilization. What should we call them? They are neither liberal (definitely NOT liberal, in fact they are the most illiberal social or political group since the Holy Inquisition was dissolved,) nor progressive. Green they may be but only in the sense of being naive, unworldly and gullible. They are certainly not progressive as they obsess only about civil rights and equality but believe equality must be imposed by government rather than being achieved by individuals collaborating, and as for their being humanists, since when did humanism have dogmas, orthodoxies and items of faith we associate with religious extremism.

A good appellation for these people would be Pusillanimous Poltroons (yes I know it's a syllogism and I just thought I'd point that out before some 'progressive liberal' tries to tell me it's an oxymoron, not that there is anything wrong with oxymorons.) A pusillanimous person is timid, cowardly, vacillating or faint hearted. A poltroon is a coward, an untrustworthy or disloyal person. So we have a cowardly coward. What better way to describe people who run around like headless chickens spreading fear and panic at the least provocation.

For several years now these people have been in a funk about increasing levels of carbon dioxide in air killing us all. Then they were quaking and crying Lord Government, save us when a panic about a very minor illness grew legs. Now they are all afraid that everybody will die of radiation poisoning because of an accident at a nuclear power station in Japan.

Let me tell you something about the accident at the Fukushima plant. It does not prove that nuclear power is too dangerous to be used, it shows how safe nuclear power is. Today, almost two weeks after the accident in which a multi reactor power station was damaged by a major earthquake, one of the biggest since records began, some workers (all volunteers) working to make the damaged reactors safe have been exposed to significant doses of radiation and a warning has been issued to people in Tokyo that tap water should not be given to babies.

It should be pointed out here that the nuclear complex was built almost on top of a very unstable geological fault. Can you imagine the consequences if an oil refinery or a chemical factory had been similarly damaged?

Almost forty years ago a senior nuclear safety official in the United States published a memorandum to colleagues. It warned that a key bulwark against a catastrophic accident in the kind of reactors now in meltdown at Fukushima was so flawed it should be banned.

He got a reaction within a week. The idea of a ban was “attractive”, wrote a more senior official, but implementing it “could well be the end of nuclear power”.

This exchange is just one of a series of warnings over the years about the safety of the General Electric “Mark I” Boiling Water Reactors, which comprise five of the six installed at the Fukushima complex..

As workers battle to contain the monster (Godzilla?) unleashed at the complex by last week's earthquake and tsunami, it is still too early to ascertain what precisely has caused the partial meltdowns at three of the reactors, and the exposure of highly radioactive spent fuel in a storage pool at a fourth. But the story of the warnings sheds some light on attitudes in the young nuclear industry which may, only now be coming to light.

The author of that memo September 20, 1972 was Dr Stephen Hanauer, then working at the US Atomic Energy Commission. He was concerned that weaknesses in the design of the container vessel around the reactor core – the main shield against the escape of radioactivity – could cause it to fail in an accident, leading to dangerous releases.

He pointed out that the vessel was smaller than was "conventional" and lent itself to the build-up of hydrogen – which seems to have played a part in the events at Fukushima – becoming "a more serious problem". He recommended that the commission "adopt a policy of discouraging further use" of that kind of containment and "that such designs not be accepted for construction permits filed after a date to be decided (say two years after the policy is adopted)".

On September 25, Dr Joseph Hendrie, the deputy director for technical review at the commission's directorate of licensing, weighed in with his reaction. The idea of such a ban, he wrote in a memo of his own, "is an attractive one in some ways", adding that alternative containments had "the notable advantage of brute simplicity".

Despite the doubts the Mark I is still going strong. Twenty three are still in operation in the US alone (though there are none in Britain) and one, which has been operating in Vermont since 1973, was granted another 20 years of life the day before the earthquake struck off Japan.

Since then reactors have been designed to be much safer, with the European Pressurised Reactor (EPR) – planned to be built here in Britain over the next few years – especially so. But official documents show that the EPR will produce several times more of the radioactive iodine and caesium that would be rapidly released in an accident than do present-day reactors.

The trouble is that human beings have a way of overriding safety systems. The 1957 Windscale fire occurred when a physicist threw a switch too soon when carrying out a routine operation. The Three Mile Island accident was caused by a whole series of human errors. At Chernobyl, operators under pressure to complete a test deliberately disabled every one of its safety systems until, in the words of the chief investigator into the catastrophe, the reactor "was free to do as it wished".

Try as we might, as long as we need electricity there will be accidents. Yet, despite the reactions of some the pusillanimous poltroons and some attention seeking politicians to the Japanese situation, abandoning nuclear power is not an option, especially in a world some say must urgently combat climate change while others, the more worldly, recognise that as oil stocks are diminishing demand is growing. From a safety point of view while nuclear generators can never be 100% safe we are better off with new reactors rather than old ones.

Long ago we sold our souls for electricity. Now we must learn to live with the consequences of that Faustian bargain. If we can accept that then it is possible to look at the Fukushima incident and see that far from revealing the risks of nuclear energy it proves how very safe nuclear power plants are.

The first thing to understand is that radiation has been demonised by the green movement and the congenitally fearful. It is not as dangerous as you have been led to think. Many people will be eager to challenge me on this so I will warn, do not go running off to Wikipedia to bring back the first thing you can find that contradicts me. I am always amused by the naivete of webheads and wikiheads who believe all the information in the world is available on the web. Some information has value and only an idiot would destroy the value of an asset by putting it on the web and thus in the public domain. Anything you find on the web is either so well known it is no longer of value or it is wrong.

First, what is radiation?

Since the formation of matter either by a cosmic event or through a divine act (we're not having THAT argument here) atoms, from which all the diverse forms of matter are made, have been shooting off sub - particles and emitting or radiating energy waves. Until the 19th century nobody understood this, then a number of projects to investigate the nature of matter revealed not only that the atom was the most basic building block of matter but a number of amazing things related to the behaviour of atoms. One of the things researchers learned was that nothing could be done to change the atomic emissions. Applying heat, pressure, electricity, or any other force made no difference whatsoever. Emission appeared to be an unchangeable property of the substances. There are three type of radiation, electro - magnetic, mecanical and particle. When talking about nuclear accident it is particle radiation, the intensified rays emitted by unstable atoms, that concern us.

First however consider the beneficial side of radiation. It is radiation that made possible X rays, MRI scanners used in medicine and also radio therapy is used to treat certain cancers.

We'll skip over loads of really really interesting stuff about atoms and nuclear forces here (it is interesting actually but is not necessary for this article)

In a nuclear reactor atoms are smashed to release energy in the form of heat. This results in some atoms losing electrons and so, because the number of protons locked in the nucleus is not equal to the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus the atom is unstable. The same thing happens in an explosion caused by a nuclear weapon but the radiation radiation is released into the environment rather than being contained. In a nuclear attack or an accident apart from the initial radiation of the blast, there is residual radiation that results when stable matter, especially blast debris, captures excess neutrons from the explosion and becomes radioactive.Radiation occurs naturally at levels which are harmless but exposure to excess radiation is harmful to most living organisms, and prolonged exposure to very high levels of radiation is usually fatal. Sunlight is a kind of radiation however and people can die from too much sun.

The reason nuclear radiation harms us is that the radioactivity emitting unstable atoms try to repair themselves by by grabbing an electron from an atom they encounter that is prepared to yield one of its electrons. Such nanosluts are most likely to be heavy metals such as uranium but these are present in the environment though not in great quantities in soil, the food we eat, and from industrial processes.

The free radicals you are advised by doctors and dieticians to purge from your body by eating anti oxidants are atoms or molecules containing an atom that has at least one unpaired electron. The anti oxidant attaches itself to the unstable atom and neutralises it.

So radiation is not an Enochian demon then but something quite natural and like many things in nature safe, even beneficial in controlled doses but dangerous if you get too close or are exposed to too much.

Now, here's why you must learn to stop worrying and love nuclear power.

As observed above Fukushima is a crappy old plant with built to a design that has always had safety issues. It was hit by a massive earthquake, one of the biggest ever recorded, and a vast tsunami. The electricity supply to the plant failed, knocking out the cooling system. We now know that the backup power supply did not take over because the diesel generators were flooded. Eventually reactors began to explode and threaten melt down. The disaster exposed a saga of poor design and corner-cutting. Yet, as far as we know, no one has yet received a lethal dose of radiation.

The unholy alliance of the politicised green lobby, the perpetually fearful and those who stand to gain $$$billions from technologies like carbon capture, wind and solar power and cap-and-trade have wildly exaggerated the dangers of radioactive pollution. For a clearer picture the graphic HERE published by xkcd.com shows that the average total dose from the Three Mile Island disaster for someone living within 10 miles of the plant was one 625th of the maximum yearly amount permitted by international treaty for US, British and European nuclear power workers. In Britain we have had no similar accidents although various leaks of low and mid level radio - active material have occurred. The maximum permitted yearly exposure is half of the lowest one-year dose clearly linked to an increased cancer risk, which, in its turn, is one 80th of an invariably fatal exposure. We must stop being swayed by the fear and panic mongers who are only trying to drive an agenda forward an let ourselves be guided by common sense.

If other forms of energy production caused no damage and were risk free the acknowledged risks of nuclear power would make a strong case against its use. But energy is like medicine: if there are no side-effects, the chances are that it doesn't work .

Greens and climate science cult followers will be wailing and gnashing teeth now, they have invested a lot of emotional energy on campaigning for a major expansion of wind and solar generating. Their opponents have won the argument however. Onshore windfarms have huge environmental impact, also the new grid connections (pylons and power lines) are not desirable for health as well as aesthetic reasons (radiation again, children living close to overhead cables are known to be significantly more prone to some cancers). As the proportion of unreliable, inconsistent renewable electricity on the grid rises, more pumped storage will be needed to keep the lights on. That means reservoirs on mountains: they aren't popular, either with environmentalists, country lovers or landowners.

The impacts and costs of renewables rise with the proportion of power they supply, as the need for storage and backup increases. It may well be the case that up to a certain grid penetration renewables have smaller carbon impacts than nuclear, while beyond that point, nuclear has smaller impacts than renewables. Nobody seems in a hurry to carry out a study of at what point the balance tips. They'll probably try fobbing us off with "the science is settled" again.

Although I have ben branded by the more immature and hysteria prone as a 'climate denier' and a 'child killer' I have always called for renewable power (not wind and solar but wave, tide, marine current and run of river schemes, 100% reliable, to be used both to replace the electricity produced by fossil fuel because the earth is not making oil and coal anywhere near as quickly as we are using it but to expand the total supply, because as the economies of the population giants China and India develop demand will increase exponentially. That is a tall order for the renewables technology we have. Are we also going to demand that wind and solar replaces current nuclear capacity? The more work we expect renewables to do, the greater the impact on the landscape and the environment will be.

But expanding the grid to connect people and industry to distant sources of natural energy, the Sahara and the Arabian deserts, the Central Asian Steppes, the Great Plains of North America is also rejected by most of the greens. What they want, they tell me, is something quite different: we should power down and produce our energy locally. Some have even called for the abandonment of the grid. Such a vision of rustic self sufficient sounds idyllic, until you realise how medieval a society we would have to become.

At high latitudes like ours in Britain, most small-scale power production is a non starter. Generating solar power in the UK involves a spectacular waste of effort and resources. It's hopelessly inefficient and works best when we need least energy. Wind power in populated areas is largely worthless. This is partly because we have built our settlements in sheltered places; partly because turbulence caused by the buildings interferes with the airflow and chews up the mechanism. Micro-hydropower might work for an isolated farmhouse in the hills, but it's not much use in a large conurbation.

Also given that we could not return to what Gandhi's critics called the 'cow dung economy' how would we run our factories,textile mills, food processing plants, brick kilns, blast furnaces and railways; how would we provide the power for pharmaceutical manufacturing processes or keep hospitals and schools running? Rooftop solar panels? Wind turbines on top of our houses. One careless teenager could probable account for the entire ambient output of a whole street. The instant you consider the dependency of a modern economy on electric power is the moment at which you understand what utter rot the Warmageddonists, the fear and panic merchants and the carbon trading trade marketeers are talking and the scales fall from your eyes about "climate science". it's not very scientific.

Some greens go even further however: why waste renewable resources by turning them into electricity? Why not waterwheels and windmills to provide energy directly? To answer this question, look at Britain or the American colonies before the industrial revolution.

The damming and weiring of British rivers for watermills was small-scale, renewable, picturesque and devastating. By blocking the rivers and silting up the spawning beds, they helped bring to an end the gigantic runs of migratory fish that were once among our great natural resources and which fed much of Britain – wiping out sturgeon, lampreys and shad, as well as most sea trout and salmon which swim inland to spawn in rivers.

Carbon free transport may not have caused any CO2 emissions but was closely associated with starvation. The land that was set aside for feeding draft animals was not available for feeding humans. It was the 17th-century equivalent of today's biofuels crisis - there is nothing new under the sun. The same applied to heating fuel. As EA Wrigley points out in his book Energy and the English Industrial Revolution, the 11m tonnes of coal mined in England in 1800 produced as much energy as 11m acres of woodland (one third of the land surface) would have generated. Even with a much lower population than today's, quality of life in the land-based economy, books, the kind of furniture we take for granted, fashionable clothes and travel were the preserve of the wealthy elite. Deep green living – decentralised, based on the products of the land – would be far more damaging to modern society than nuclear meltdown.

Nuclear energy has just been subjected to one of the harshest of possible tests, and the impact on people and the planet as a whole has been tiny. The crisis at Fukushima is a perfect demonstration of why you should stop worrying and love the atom..

Vertical Farming: The Looniest Idea Yet For Saving The PlanetClimate Science is a strange discipline. Part trainspotting, part trekkie convention going, it combines an almost autistic obession with collcting details, a very autistic obsession with focusing on a single theme and a fantasist's capacity for self deception and a taste for mutual masturbation. The latest loonytoons idea for saving the planet involves turning skyscraper buildings into farms growing food for urban populations. Apart from increasing the cost of food by 1000% and increasing rather than reducing the carbon footprint of food production the idea is so insane noboy could ever take it seriously. Nobody that is except scientists, politicians, academics and the media.

The Futility Of Wind Farms.In some ways the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition has made quite a good start in government. One area they are set to fail badly however is energy.

If they generate at their optimum output for 365 days a year the contribution to energy needs looks like a viable business proposition. The problem is due to the limitations of the technology and the vagaries of the weather wind farms are doing well if they operate at a quarter of their potential output.

WHO warns of "shadow zones" and unreported Ebola cases

By Stephanie Nebehay and Clair MacDougall GENEVA/MONROVIA (Reuters) - Families hiding infected loved ones and the existence of "shadow zones" where medics cannot go mean the West African Ebola epidemic is even bigger than thought, the World Health Organization said on Friday. Some 1,427 people have died among 2,615 known cases of the deadly virus in West Africa since the outbreak was first identified in March, according to new figures released by the WHO on Friday. Independent experts raised similar concerns a month ago that the contagion could be worse than reported because some residents of affected areas are chasing away health workers and shunning treatment. Despite initial assertions by regional health officials that the virus had been contained in its early stages, Ebola case numbers and deaths have ballooned in recent months as the outbreak has spread from its initial epicentre in Guinea.

Sometimes we think things are cooling down in Ukraine, media ficus on the propaganda war betweek the kiev government and its American and European backers and the pro Russian separatists, backed by The Kremlin distracts us from what is going on on the ground. But there is still plenty goig on on the ground

OK Smartarse, So You Don't Believe Conspiracy Theories? Read This ...
As internet users you've all come across the kind of smart arse who thinks he has all the answers. The usually describe themselves as scientists or realists and are absolutely sure they are far too clever to be taken in by any of the nonsense that right wing extremist swivel eyed loons are always banging on about.

The Hate And Prejudice The Bourgois Left Find Acceptable
The neo - fascist left are quick to jump on any of the forbidden pejudices, racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia and so on. But as we have seen, they find pejudice and hated againt Christians and white Europeans quite acceptable. The bourgeois metropitan set might think that is acceptable but where I come from it's called hypocrisy.

What Would The Future Look Like Without The Propaganda Happy Pills The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by our ruling classes is gobsmacking. Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians seem to think they are untouchable, above the norms and ethics that apply to ordinary mortals and that they are able to rewrite the laws of nature on a whim. We are not just talking about politicians here, but bankers and business leaders, the legal, medical and education professions, public servants, academics and senior police officers.

Funny Things Happen In Ukraine - The Destriction Of The Convoy That Didn't Exist
The Ukraine Government claimed they had destroyed a Russian convoy that entered their territory. East Ukrainian rebels denounced it as an atrocity. Two British journalists working near the Russia / Ukrain border said they had witnessed the carnage. Russia said there had been no convoy. Independent sources said satellite pictures showed no evidence of wreckage. WTF was that all about?

Ebola and the Absent “Humanitarians”
When the FUKUS axis leaders, France, United Kingdom and the Unites States of America were calling for approval to intervene in Libya, Yemen, Syria and Ukraine, they justified their lust for war by claiming that bombing the crap out of those counties was necessary on humanitarian grounds. And the member of the FUKUS axis and their allies spent billions of $£€ on humanitarian bombs that wreaked hiumanitarian havoc among the innocent poor and middle class citizens of those nations. Now they have work out their 'The Jihad Is Coming' scare but have a new weapon Ebola ...

US TV news: Zero evidence to prove MH17 shot down by pro Russian rebels
We have had our share of fun with shills for America's war of economic salavtion. The problem is that right after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was brought down over Ukraine, we said calims that US military surveillance agents had 'compelling evidence' the rebels in Ukraine shot down the aircraft seemed a little too quick and made the disaster look like another US sponsored false flag attack ...

Russia to request MH17 probe report This might throw a spanner in the works of the cosy carve up between the USA, Britain, The Netherlands and Ukraine over analysis of the evidence from inquiries into the downing of malaysia airlines Flight MH17.
Russia will request an official report in relation to progress of an investigation into the crash of a Malaysian passenger plane in eastern Ukraine.
"We will ask for a briefing by the UN Secretariat on the progress of the implementation of Resolution 2166," Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told reporters at the UN headquarters in New York on Monday.

New malaria vaccine doesn’t work most of the time, but manufacturer says it’s good enough to sell
Once again we turn our attention to vaccines and the criminality of the drug companies that manufacture and sell them:
There's a good chance that the vast majority of people who receive it won't derive any benefits whatsoever. But that isn't stopping British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from seeking regulatory approval for a new vaccine for malaria, known as RTS,S, that a recent study determined is only about 30 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease, which has no recognized cure.

Germany Is Building a European Army Before Your Eyes
The Dutch army is made up of three brigades, plus support staff and Special Forces. On June 12, one of those brigades, the 11th Airmobile, officially joined the German army.
This was the first time ever that European country has handed part of its army over to another country. “Never before has a state renounced this elementary and integral part of its sovereignty,” wrote Die Welt’s political editor Thorsten Jungholt.
“The hour has come, finally, for concrete steps towards a European Army.” — Chairman of the German Parlaiment’s Defence Committee Hans-Peter Bartels ...

Leaked Document Exposes One Sidedness Of Corporate-Friendly Trade Deal
A leaked document reveals the extent to which the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP), will give Corporate businesses dominion over sovereign nation's elected asdsemblies and law courts. It's time we took up pitchforks and cudgels to march on London ...

Islamic State Threatens UK Says Cameron. Have We Heard Anything Similar Before
According to our Prime Minister, The West is engaged in a generational struggle against Islamic extremism that will threaten Britain unless urgent action is taken to defeat it, David Cameron warns today. (I told you those Tornado jet fighter planes were not in Iraq to drop bulk supplies of rice you beseiged Yazidis.)

Huge North Sea oil find enough to produce for over thirty five years. Media silence

First borken by the Blogosphere, this story which should be the biggest in British news media by now, is just being picked up by the mainstream. When will some newspaper or TV news editor be brave enough to run it we wonder? The story:

An oil field, described as one of the biggest untapped resources in the North Sea, is set to produce oil until 2050, it has emerged.

New GMO Approval Will Go Ahead Despite Public Outcry.

Corporate monopoly men and control freak politicians, aided by their Dr. Death scientists are determined to force genetically modified (GM) foods on an very sceptical public. If there was any truth in the claims that GM crops can feed the world and are safe, the public would not be sceptical, but the genetically engineered organisms now being developed are modified to be resistant to highly toxic chemicals to which humans and animals have no resistance.

Is It Lack Of Diversity That Makes Lefties Stupid?
Quite a while ago now I wrote a post titled "Is It Lack Of Diversity That Drives Left wing Hate?" It contained these lines: There's an old joke; Q: "Why do teenagers only listen to other teenagers?" A: "Because they're stupid." - Q: "Why are teenagers stupid?" A: Because they only listen to other teenagers." Substitute leftie, liberal, radical or progressive for teenager and that just about sums up the political 'left'

"Anti-Putin" Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions
When I posted a blog yesterday, Game and set to Putin (it wasn't quite match) which commented on how while Russia has shrugged off the American and EU sanctions, European farmers were being hit hard by Russia's retaliatory ban on foodstuff from the EU, Mike St. Mark replied that while the Russian leader was running rings round the USA, EU and Ukraine, he didn't think it was quite game and set at that point. It is now ...

The U.S. is bombing Iraq isn’t for humanitarian reasons
The involvement of Britain’s Royal Air Force in delivering humanitarian aid in Iraq t has triggered speculations that the UK, may join the US in launching targeted air strikes against the Islamic State. The RAF Tornados deployed Tornado are two seat fighter planes capable of low level s supersonic flight but not idea for delivering large payloads of bagged rice or bottled water. They could be useful for dropping medicines however. Though British military leaders were insistent that the aircraft would only be used in Iraq as part of humanitarian operations, the choice of Tornados ... More

Game And Set To Putin - Sanctions Hit EU Economies
Do you remember how the lefties cheered just a short while ago when in retaliation for Russia not obliging the warmongers of the military / industrial complex by starting World War Three in response to numerous provocations. They praised ...

Will new clean energy process make coal the fuel of the future
Coal, you exclaim, throwing up your hands in horror, the stuff that covered buildings of industrial towns in black soot, the stuff that choked miners lungs and sent millions of people to early graves? Coal the filthiest fuel ever? How can you say it is clean? Well a new technology recently announced might change your mind. Unless you are a windmill worshipping Warmageddonist of course.

Such Nice People Live On The Left Of The Political Spectrum
Left wing politics, once the politics of freedom, individualism and self - determination has increasingly over the past few decades become the politics of hate, envy, bitterness, hypocrisy and authoritarianism. Left wing politics has now developed a level of intolerance for those who challenge its idiotic assumptions or moral superiority, it appears to be charging headlong towards fascism.

Independent Scientists Demolish The Lies About GMOs And The Safety Of Glyphosate
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity. This article reports a conference at which independent scientists (i.e. those not funded by biotech corporations) expose the lies and corruption behind claims that GM crops are safe. Say no to GMO.

Britain’s maths policy simply doesn’t add up - but neither does overestimating the importance of maths.
As an engineer, mathematics has been an important part of my career but I have always been aware that it is a tool. In the past there have been many attempts to develop a 'philosophy of everything' base on mathematical speculations that took maths into areas it was never designed to go, areas of human thought and enquiry that rightly belong to philosophers. This talk of mathematicians being creative jarrs with me somewhat, inventors, engineers, designers are creative. Mathematics is just part of our tool kit.

Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.
Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it's in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I'm right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.

How Fundamentalists Of Materialism Hijacked Science.
Yet again we find ourselves making a stand against the fascism of mainstream science. The nerds are getting stroppy and trying to suppress ideas they don't like again (Nobody expects The Science Inquisition) Thing is of course, if their ideas were half as good as they claim, the alternative being proposed would not look so convincing.

The Return Of The Twopenny Upright
That erudite commentator on business and economics and Cappo di Tutti Cappi, Tony Soprano once said to one of his sidekicks, "In any recession which businesses are least affected? Prostitution, gambling and organised crime." Our political leaders, in Britain, Europe and the USA may be telling us the recession is over and recovery is surging ahead but ... Why Does The US Government Hold A Patent On The Ebola Virus? Just Askin'
The outbreak of Ebola fever in west Africa has been making headlines since January this year, but as usual we are only being told half the story by mainstream media. It took a lot of digging by myself and colleagues in the blogosphere to dig up this pile of dirt which suggests the "new strain" of Ebola faver that has killed far more people than previous outbreaks may have resulted from attempts to weaponise the virus. And guess which national government is allegedly responsible.

Secrets And Lies And Oil In Scottish Referendum Cover Up
As the referendum in which Scotland will vote for or against independence from the United Kingdom approaches rumours are rife that news of a massive oil find near the shetanad Isles is being suppressed. Such news would guarentee scotland;s financial stability and could be a game changer in the unpredictable vote. But the UK government will not want to let that oil slip between their fingers.

Astrophysicist Declares GMOs Safe - Is Demolished By A Biologist.
The GMO battle goes on, one one side the corporate funded, government backed, global government supporting science lobby, on the other the part of the biological research community that still believes in hostesty, integrity and objectivity, supported by the masses of ordinary punters who support common sense solutions and whose suspicion of big money science is based on its track record of disaster, catastrophe and unforeseen consequences. Say no to GMO.

Shock; horror. Human Barbie Doll has her own opinions
The human Barbie girl Valeria Lukyanova has become something of an online phenomenon and is regarded as a sex symbol by many young men of the kind who have more computers than friends. Personally I find her apearance bizarre and about as sexually alluring as cold porridge. Still each to there own, where would we be without diversity of opinion.

We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House Say ISIS Leaders
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Islamic State for short has a nice line in chutzpah, which seems a very Jewish quality for Islamists. Their leaders have issued a video via Vice media which warns the United States that ...

Suppression Of News Used To Influence Scottish Referendum Vote?
Now, in order to avoid being accused of trying to influence the outcome of the Scottish Referendum (because I don't believe in telling the scots how to run their affairs any more than I approve of telling Arabs, Afghans and Ukrainians how their countries should be run) I offer for your consideration this news leaved via Oil and Gas People.

As Obama launches another airborne assault in Iraq, who are ISIS
I have been consistently against western (FUKUS axis) interventions in domestic politics of middle eastern states. There comes a time however when intervention is necessary. Thus we must accept the necessity of the USA's latest military adventure, the reconvening of the war in Iraq.So why have I had a change of heart at this stage?

EU Boss Argues That Their Work With Banks And Corporate Interests Should Be Concealed From The Public.
Shills for global government and corporate fascism are always quick to shout 'conspiracy theorist' when anybody questions things like the EU federalisation project, the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans Pacific Trade Partnership (TPP) The obvious response is to ask why representatives of supra national bureaucracies are so desperate to ensure progress on these peojects is shrounded in secrecy?

The Real Reason The US Is Bombing Iraq
Only a day after Obama’s announcement that he had authorized “targeted strikes” inside Iraq in order to combat the Islamic State (IS) advance, the United States has indeed followed through with their threat. At least two waves of airstrikes against a variety of targets have already taken place inside Iraq. One of the airstrikes apparently struck an IS mortar position and an IS convoy near Erbil. IS fighters had advanced to within a half hour’s distance from Erbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdish region.

A Message For Nanny State
Nanny State is on the warpath, admonishing finger wagging furiously, lips compressed into a thin line, she is launching another determined effort to make sure we are all too scared to think for ourselves or make our own choices, Nanny is now warning, with the usual threats of early and painful death is we disobey, that we should ...

German Handelsblatt Releases Stunning Anti-West Op-Ed, Asks If West Rabble-Rousers Are On The Payroll Of The KGB
Up until this point in the Obama Administrations attempt to recreate events leading up to World War One, Angela Merkel and German media in general, had been firmly on the side of the west when it comes to dealing with Russia, Putin and realpolitik in broader terms. That changed dramatically today when Gabor Steingart, the chief editor of Handelsblatt, Germany's leading economic newspaper, came out with a stunning op-ed, in German, English and Russian, titled simply that "The West on the wrong path"

MH17: More evidence points to Kiev / Washington False Flag
Last week Little Nicky relayed reports (yes, relayed; in spite of what some authoritarians would have you believe, I don't make this stuff up, it's all reported) accounts of two German aviation experts who testified that their examination of photographs showing wreckage from around the cockpit area of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 shot down over Ukraine were consistent with heavy calibre machine gun fire, which suggested the plane had been shot down by ...

Scots Wha Hae When Wallace Bled - A Boggart's view of Scottish Independence.
The Scottish Independence debate has failed so far to fire passions north of the border. Most Scots seem to be seeking evidence that Scotland will be no worse off as an independent nation, or is and will continue to be better off as part of the UK. Nobody in either London or Edinburgh is able to give a straight answer however. Her's our contribution ...

How Politically Correct Thinking Leads Into A Moral Maze
Being a leftie can be hard work however, with so many of the causes they must embrace being in direct opposition to other favoured causes, lefties encounter a lot of moral dilemmas. So being a believer in all -isms, the kind of idiot who equates calls for immigration controls with South African Apartheid or Stalinist genocide and is quite sure that equality means members of favoured minorities should be given me the privileged status of an elite class, can get hairy at times.

Another Obama Sponsored Genocide - not Alawi or Christians In Syria but Yazidi in Iraq.
While the west has been distracted by events in Gaza and Ukraine, and the neo - fascist 'left' have suddenly discovered the joys of anti Russianism and anti Semitism, the FUKUS axis sponsored genocidists of ISIS have discovered another inoffensive minority to exterminate now that the Syriac Christians have fled.

Neo - fascist Left's Idiotic Obsession With Racism Becoming More Insane
I don't know how many of you have noticed but the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the politically correct left over imaginary racism has become fr moire irrational and hysterical since the success of UKIP the the European Parliament elections back in May. The latest entirely innocent thing to be the target of racism accusations from the insane left is BBC Radio's sedate gardening programme Gardeners World. How have the cucumers and compost brigade upset the loony left?

Fear and Panic and Ebola Fever
The latest attempt to justify war has been the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine allegely by pro Russia separatists with support from The Kremlin. So far the 'compelling evidence' the American government claimed to possess has not been revealed but such evidence as has been seen points to another false flag even. Remember the Swine Flu pandemic?They're doing it again with Ebola fever, ramping up the scare factor and trying to spread enough fear and panic to justify suspending democratic rule by pretending this disease could potentially kill most of us.

Afrophilia and the reality of western ambitions in Africa
One of the dogmas of this politically correct cult of knee jerking, lockstep marching, wisdom-of-the-crowd chanting flock of Sheeple is that we must love Africa. Dark skin good, pale skin bad is the mantra. That the sheeple are nothing more than gullible dupes and useful idiots to the faceless men and women who really lead us is shown by the contrast between the mass Afrophilia of the flock and the way the controllers see Africa.

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
So far in the Libyan crisis, the Syria crisis, the Iraq crisis and the Ukraine crisis, Obama and the European leaders have made a lot of noise and imposed a lot of meaningless sanctions (like confiscating the bus passes of retired Russian gengsters living in the west. And the Russians have just quietly got on with doing what they were doing.

What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?
What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone? That is a question being asked around the cyberosphere as the Ebola outbreak in Africa continues to spread and alarm grows in the western nations. The Tulane University researchers [and colleagues] in the US biowarfare research community, have been operating in West Africa for some time. What exactly have they been doing? Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Mass Immigration Means Failing Hospitals, Schools And Overcrowded Cities
Another shock for the left as think tank Civitas reports that mass immigration causes enormous social and economic problems while the 'benefits' to society the left bang on about are very marginal. The left's real agenda of course is the genocide of the fair skinned races. As most of these stupid lefties are white Europeans or Americans this is a perfect illustation of how stupid and self important they are, How does that old joke go about turkeys voting for Christmas?

Pandemonium: UKIP Taken Over By Fiends From Hell?
UKIP are at risk of being engulfed in another "ism" scandal as Jake Baynes, prospective parliamentary candidate for Wells has resigned his candiacy and party offices, claiming the constituency party has been taken over by "Occultists"

Ukraine Government Fires Missiles At Rebel Held Targets Leaders in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels continue to pump out the propaganda against Russia as they try to provoke a war over the alleged shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine by separatist rebels supported by Russia. But in spite of claims by Obama and Kerry that the US have evidence that proves it was the rebels wot done it, the more evidence we see, the more likely it looks that the Ukrain government in Kiew was responsible.

America's GDP Surges 4% in Quarter 2 - Jonathan Creek Shows How The Trick Is Done
This morning the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, an agency of the Commerce department revealed Q2 GDP statistics which blew made nonesense of estimates, showing year on year growth for the second quarter at 4.0%.

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War
Rape as a weapon of war and genocide is not a pleasant subject but it is one that needs to be raise, like the issue of Female Genital Mutilation. Why visit such unpleasant topics? To expose the hypocrisy of the modern political left who have more in common with Hitler's Nazis, Mussolini's Fascist or Stalin's brutal Soviet regime that the supporters of traditional left wing values of individual freedom, free speech and equality before the law.

Why Do The 'Progressive Left' Support Those Who Use Rape As A Weapon Of War

FUKUS axis imposes sanctions, Russian Oligarchs Shrug
You have probably read a torrent of arse dribble in mainstream media about "Russia is becoming increasingly isolated" It's a meme that political leaders in the FUKUS axis, EU and NATO would like us to believe. It isn't quite the whole story however.

Sensational Break From Official Lies - German Aviation Expert Says MH17 Brought Down By Air To Air Missile
The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine has triggered a war of words between the USA / FUKUS axis and Russia as President Obama, without any clear evidence to support him, tried to blame Russia and use the outrage to justify a military intervention in Ukraine that would certainly start a major global conflict. So far Russia has stood its ground but refused to be provoked as evidence like that below has undermined the western narrative.

US wants WWIII because its big banks are insolvent: Henderson
An American author and columnist says the United States wants to start a third world war because most of its big banks are insolvent.
Dean Henderson with the Veterans Today made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday as he commented on recent remarks made by White House Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes who said ...

Germany Axes Canada-EU Trade Agreement, This Will End TTIP Stitch Up Too
We are winning. Well today we are at least. News broke over the weekend that Germany intends to junk the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP). So it looks as though the shockwave of the European Parlianment elections has awoken politicians to the anger of voters throughout Europe with the dicatatorial attitude of the EU.

Who shot down MH17? Black Box Data Reveals Nothing We Did Not Know
As the political and media war over responsibility for the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 continues, here's a chance to view a report put together by the BBC Russia news channel (In Russian with English subtitles). Strangely the Beeb have taken this report offline now. Make what you will of that. The video shows the handling of the Black Box flight recorders, which

Now Things Are Starting To Make Sense
It is now known that the uprising in Ukraine early this year that saw the elected government, which was cooperating far too well with Russia for the liking of the western powers overthrown and replaced by a US and EU sponsored gaggle of gangsters, thugs and neo - fascists whose task was to

Funny How A Few Days Good Weather Brings The Warmageddonists Out
Over the past few scorching hot days I have seen several members of the alomst defunct Warmageddonist society plugging their tired, discredited old "science" and trying to claim that mathematics proves that what is observably not happening is actually happening but only scientists are clever enough to understand that ... Hmm, is that so?

Military Veterans Opinion: Probably A Bomb That Took Down MH-17!
Funny how the left present themselves as the politics of peace and unity but are all out in support of Barack Obama's latest warmongering campaign in Ukraine following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. I suppose the pacifists enthusiasm for World War Three proves George Orwell was right when he said War is Peace.

America's Dumbest Move Yet: Hijacking A Foreign Bank
The financial markets seem to be getting more volatile, with share prices and currency values fluctuating wildly on the slightest indication of good or bad news. But when central banks start hijacking other banks on the basis of very flimsy evidence from a pariah state, we should befinding somewhere safer for our money

UK Government Report Confirms Huge Abuse of EU Free Movement Rules
After scream of 'racists' and 'bigots' from the left when common sense users pointed out that mass immigration does not benefit the economy, nor is it fair to the people shiioped here having been promised a utopian existence only to find they are living in foul conditions, doing menial jobs, and being paid under minimum wage and exploited by unscrupulous bosses. , a report by civil servants confirms that the 'right wing extremists' was absolutely correct.

Malaysian Government and Opposition Call For MH17 Justice – Evidence Suggests Foul Play
Thanks to the sleazy political opportunism of Barack Hussein Obama and his bum boy David Cameron the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been turned into a circus as the outrageous accusations (based on zero evidence, the USA told reporters to look on Facebook if they wanted proof the Ukrain pro Russia separatists did it) have spawned increasingly crazy conspiracy theories.

Poor white pupils put off school by multicultural timetable
Education, should it be about learning to read, write, spell and calculate? Or should it be about feminism, gay rights, black history and 'gender awareness' whatever that is? For many years we have had multiculturalism and politically correct thinking rammed doiwn pupils throats but noe a study by a local education department suggests this obsession with politicallly corret diversity is responsible for the failure of white working class pupils.

Israel maybe guilty of war crimes – UN Human Rights Chief(This could be the understatement of the millennium)
Israel maybe committing war crimes in Gaza, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says. Speaking in Geneva, Navi Pillay said house demolitions and the killing of children raise the "strong possibility" that Israel is violating international law. Opening an emergency debate at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, she citied cases of Israeli air strikes and shelling hitting ...

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 - Nothing is ever what it seems to be
Nothing is ever what it seems to be, I learned that doing top level consultancy contracts for government departments. Deception is the name of the game. So what of Flight MH17, certainly the plane was shot down and our sympathies are with the families of the dead. But the game of finger pointing that followed was not about justice but political opportunism. And by playing a waiting game the Russsians are winning again.

US State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative Spokeswoman Angrily Refers Press to Social Media for 'Proof'
The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media. With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Obama Goes Full - On Nazi: with Europe, and it’s headlined on July 18th, “US Accused of Forcing EU to Accept Tar Sands Oil Trade
The secret negotiations around the 'New World Order' free trade treaties, TPP and TTIP that will strip democratically elected governments of sovereign power lumber on. There are positive signs however that the world is waking up to the neo Nazi nature of these sleazy so - called trade treaties cooked up by the Obama Andministration and some of the biggest and most evil corporate businesses in the world.

Diversity' Does Not Mean Quotas. Why Do The Left Have To Rewrite The Dictionary.
One might think, given the amount of screaming and shouting about diversity we hear from the left, they might take a little time to find out what it really means and stop applying their superficial and shallow meaning to it. The left however are hupocrites which is why they can claim to have a monopoly on truth and goodness while embracing the tactics of fascism in silencing opposition. Thus they have no problem reducing 'diversity' to a question of skin colour or sexual preference while insisting only one shade of opinion is acceptable.

What The Media Is Not Writing About Flight MH17
Only hours after the tragic downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians, led by the dickhead in chief Barack Hussein Obama were jumping up and down screaming "It was Russia wot done it." The sycophants in mainstream media were quick to join in, stating that ...

Whatever War Crimes Obama Accuses Russia Of You Can Bet America Has done It First.

World policitical leaders and media sycophants are lining up to condemn Russia for the dowing on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. Here are a few snippets from our coverage:
