Comments Off on Russia is building nuclear bomb shelters and warning residents of imminent attack by US

Russia has been all over the headlines of American news media lately (did you catch the Presidential debate last night?), and it’s now come to light that the country is preparing for war – or so it says. The  country’s Ministry of Emergency Situations wants to turn a giant half-constructed stadium just outside St Petersburg into a nuclear fallout shelter . The Ministry sent a demand letter to the managers of the Zenit Arena, which is currently being build for World Cup 2018, calling for the establishment of an emergency shelter. Reportedly, this move is just one of several ways Russia ’s leaders are gearing up for nuclear war . The letter describes the stadium as being in the potential “zone of war destruction and radiation fallout” should a nuclear attack occur. Recent Russian state-run television broadcasts have warned the public that nuclear war with the US is “imminent,” accompanied with reminders to learn the location of the nearest bomb shelter. Video tours of fallout shelters also aired, giving the public a glimpse at how life after nuclear war might look. Russian authorities also report that 40 million people recently participated in a drill, complete with crowds of children evacuating schools and donning gas masks. Russian leaders have warned that the threat of nuclear attack will increase, should Hillary Clinton win the presidential election next month.

Yet, despite the increase in discussions about nuclear attacks inside Russia’s borders, most analysts elsewhere in the world don’t believe there is any particular threat. In fact, many say it’s more likely that Russia is using the age-old tactic of fear mongering in order to control its people. Among the television broadcasts was an interview with a retired colonel “showing several possible scenarios of the catastrophe” on a map. That map, apparently, was lifted from an American video game, and not a real representation of any planned military action.

Comments Off on Severed Pipe Exposes Fukushima Workers To Several Tonnes Of Radioactive Water

As if the situation at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant weren’t bad enough, we now have news that six clean-up workers were exposed to radioactive water when a pipe was mistakenly disconnected. According to the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power ( Tepco ), several tonnes of radioactive water gushed out of the pipe, putting at least six of the workers at extreme risk for physical contamination. Although they were wearing protective clothing and masks, the workers will undergo extensive tests to determine if there was any internal or external exposure.

Comments Off on 14,000 US Deaths Linked to Radiation Leaks at Damaged Fukushima Nuclear Reactor in Japan

Within days of the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, researchers in cities across the United States noticed that radiation levels in air, water, and milk that were hundreds of times above normal. Now, as the government in Japan declares the disaster solved , a new peer-reviewed study blames elevated levels of radiation for 14,000 deaths in the United States – and researchers involved in the study are still wondering how far the death toll will climb. They hope this startling discovery will show nations worldwide that the risk of radiation poisoning is not limited to the community immediately surrounding the site of the disaster.
