Ecocide – How Dare We Be Species-Suicide Bombers Taking ALL Life Down With Our Own?

ecocide-earth1

Species-Suicide Bombers – How dare we sink to becoming the biggest mass murderers of all time, by a multi-multi-trillionfold?

The End of the World

A correspondent of mine emailed me to recommend a book by John Leslie titled, The End of the World.

New Image

More people living now than the grand total of humans who have ever lived!

ccotwShe said the book makes a disturbingly solid case for our extinction, saying that we are among the last generations of humans. Part of this reasoning involves a complex mathematical determination of our trajectory, which includes the interesting calculation that there are twice as many humans alive, right now, THAN THE GRAND TOTAL OF HUMANS THAT HAVE EVER LIVED. That last is a provocative finding, to say the least.

Now, I haven’t read the book, but just his premise got me to thinking. Of course, what I know confirms his conclusions in spades, but I couldn’t help feeling irked by his all-too-familiar perspective. For, to me, it is not just about our species. It is not just about our extinction. It is not just suicide, but murder. My correspondent, “Open Intelligence,” has used the term, “ecocide,” to make this kind of point.

Ok we’re commiting species-suicide;
but how DARE we become species-suicide-bombers killing all OTHER life with us

Recently, I checked on the actual number of species that currently are on our planet, and the number was estimated at five-hundred million SPECIES. smmn20lI think the whole problem IS that we only see “life” in terms of “our” life—our species. Indeed, some people think in terms of life being only for those of their religion, nation, social group, tribe, family, or even just oneself—all of which aid the murder of those who are “not life.”

So, Leslie is apparently thinking along the lines of many others who are not seeing the tragedy we are perpetrating to those other than our species, which is a milder form of the bigotry and prejudice we hold for one human against another type of human. I think that is a shame. [Footnote 1]

pike the earth 2But then we cannot seem to even wake people up to saving themselves or their children, so how can we get them to empathize with the trillions upon trillions of other lives and the multi-hundred-millions of other life forms we share this planet with?

101619634I guess that is my problem with his approach: It comes from my feeling that –Ok, we are committing suicide, but maybe we fucking deserve it. 9241173_3414_625x1000But how DARE we “blow up”—like a species suicide bomber—without a second thought for their pain or their lives—which we are only too dumb, and ego- species-centric, bigoted to see, let alone empathize with—as simple “collateral damage,”squirrel.friends.animals,cute,love,wild,life,animal,kiss-0234b807ffd68088bcbc8b2247324e1d_h innumerable multi-bijilliion-trillions of innocent souls/ life forms and hundreds of millions of other entire species of them with us. That is murder of the highest degree, and an evil that this planet has never imagined before this time.

But, again, I see the point of talking to people where they are coming from as a starting point, as Leslie is doing. But shouldn’t we try to raise as much awareness as possible of, to me, the much greater evil that we are committing, DeepwaterHorizononfireafterBPoilspil[1]for those who can hear it? I say, if we want to kill ourselves off, fine. But how dare we sink to becoming the biggest mass murderers of all time, by a multi-multi-trillionfold? We are currently making the Nazis look like Mother Theresas by comparison. If there will be a history of our species by an alien race after we are gone, I do not doubt that the words “Fukushima” and “Oil Spill dead zones,” will have the same kind of black potency that “Auschwitz” and “Dachau” currently have for us.

Earth Dies Screaming – Death is certainly part of life. But MURDER of 250 million species, along with our own, is EVIL

Jacob Wrestles the Angel Sussman, Sat Jan 10, 2009,  1:59:46 PM,  8C, 7698x10240,  (666+1047), 150%, Repro 2.2 v2,  1/10 s, R103.5, G48.5, B59.2<br />

Die-Off of 250 Million Species in Under Fifty Years…And You Really Think We’ll Be Here?

OR, Have you heard the new version of the 12 days of Christmas? It ends with “8 billion Nero’s fiddling.” But no one lives long enough to finish it… ever.

Scientists are saying we will see a fifty percent die-off rate, extinction, of species within the next twenty to fifty years. That is to say, within that time half the species we see now—well actually about five years ago—will be gone forever. [Footnote 1]

baby-seal-pepper-spray

To think that we will be around after that, even to watch video games of the wildlife that once was, is the same as a doctor saying to someone: “Sorry, within twenty to fifty years, half of the organs in your body will be gone. BP-oil-spillccThey’ll die and ‘fall’ away, and you’ll be DISABLED” (! hardly just “disabled” tho).

OK, now you tell me how we’re going to be alive to even see what happens after that kind of extinction?! Does no one realize how much death that means? Does no one see any interconnections between us and planetmates? 647cd43e17eaa9d34bba930d21b5-grandeThe world will come to an end if bankers don’t get money, they tell us. And if they did away with roads, or trucks…it’s Mad Max time, right? Well, how about when the bees didn’t show up? One species out of a scientifically estimated five-hundred million species and our economy was going ape shit! What happens with two-hundred-fifty MILLION species gone forever?!

Tom Waits – “Earth Died Screaming”

Ecocide

Global, Universal Death/Extinction Isn’t Just Death, Suicide; It Is MURDER, Of a Kind So Evil, Nazis Look Like Mother Theresas by Comparison

Concerning extinction of species—ourselves and other species—which is going on, an idea was put forth to me that we are assuming death is evil. This person intended, considering the context, for this to be taken spiritually, philosophically.

Re: The psychology of Extinction: Murder of untold billions through greed, laziness, egotism..well, I say, EVIL!

My reply was: You make the point that needs to be considered as it sits deep down in the hidden center of this particular wordpool. It’s a mind-bender and mind-stretcher when you stray down your road for sure. But after having been down it a fair number of times, both on my own as well as with companions, I find one tangible, unshakable thing, only, to still and focus my vision and guide my stance, actions, and position with surety. It is this:

I, for one, am not assuming death is an evil. I do not believe death is evil at all, quite the contrary. Death has always been a part of life, and all the religions have it as a sublime culmination of a life well lived. But that is a spiritual perspective. And that is a perspective about death in its essence.

journeylifecanoeIt is a vision from a spiritual stance—rooted in science, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism—as well as from a traditional religious view, where it is held that one’s life in the body is only a try-out for a better, “real” life in “heaven.” [Footnote 3]

-However, you are mistaking, as analogy, the beautiful precise utility of a finely honed and balanced knife—metaphorically speaking—with what is really important and what is so hard to look at or fathom or even let into one’s thoughts: That is, the horrific, ghastly, unbelievably bloody and messy, grotesque, garish…infinitely hellacious and mind-drippingly insane scene that is right in front of all of us: 28372_10150200648570436_765260435_13037173_6511830_nthat of the angelic young girl and her vulnerable innocent and kind-hearted mother, burning skeletontheir bodies slashed, cut up, stabbed, gouged, even chopped and minced, and strewn widely and randomly in this ungodly lake of blood framed within this just recently homey, comforting surround of simple comfortable living room furniture and accouterments,nuclear_explosion_color_3 which now, however, are awash and stained and forever nightmarish as they record in blood, guts, and other of that ilk, DeepwaterHorizononfireafterBPoilspil[1]but of which we do not want even to know, the violence, wild aggression, horrible pain, fear, terror, and trauma of the event—the murder… the murder that was so precisely perfect in its nightmarishness as it was aided in its perfect horror by such a beautifully crafted, finely honed, exquisitely and marvelously sharp, perfectly balanced and joyous to feel, hold, and use KNIFE.

BP-oil-spill-pelican-2

What I am saying is, OK death is beautiful, in essence. And going back to God is, my belief, the highest accomplishment and culmination of a life lived well. But we are not talking about my death or your death. We are talking about you and I deciding, by refusing to fight back the apocalypse—which could be taken up merely by changing some of our greedy, wasteful, egoistic ways—the death of untold trillions of other living conscious beings, indeed, of conscious things that we are not evolved enough to even be aware of. We are deciding that THEIR death, because of our actions…well, that’s not so evil, eh?

Well, that’s easy for US to say. But how about them? Don’t you think they might be a tad upset that we would be deciding this FOR THEM…(Jonestown-style)?

nobilityswanAainaA_John_NybergSo, you bring up the point that needs to be addressed before we can really commit ourselves to the fight and the struggle to change that is being required of us. But I offer that I have never found anyone able to shake or even threaten the principle I have found to stand on: God’s creation, which includes death, in Her (His) time and in the way He (She) would have for each of us, is beauteous perfection. But, MURDER…that is, MY deciding…or ANYONE (but God) deciding for another that death is good, well… well… Is not that what Hitler did? What the Nazis did?

Death—not evil—may be beautiful.

Murder of untold multi-billion-trillions through greed, laziness, egotism, hubris, and extreme lack of empathy and feeling for the feelings/consciousness of those others…. well, I say,

EVIL!!!

Evil beyond all imagining. Evil beyond anything ever conceived or acted ever st-clouds-fjpg-fca3881ee93d5d4f_largebefore in the uncountable billions of years of existence of this planet.

EVIL! Even the killing of the planet—its systems so perfectly balanced, so far beyond our understanding—of a nature that is beyond our comprehension, which, for all we know, is akin to a higher consciousness, a deva, a god, goddess.

Yes, EVIL to murder. Incredibly evil to bring to an end such things so far handsholdingtreesabove and beyond our understanding that we cannot even comprehend the magnitude of that evil.

Now, that is my conclusion. I deem that murder on a scale so huge as to be inconceivable, of numbers of beings so great we have no way of knowing the hideous magnitude of the crime, not to mention eight billion alone of our own species, and laying to waste the dreams, efforts, and results of multibijillions of past lives on this planet of all species IS EVIL!

smogcitych10That is something I do not want to ever think I helped to happen…. Indeed it is EVIL so huge that I think I would not feel right, ever again, in the consciousness forever after this life and after my death, if I did not expend every ounce of my energy while I still can/could to try to prevent, to try to stop, to work against, to struggle to keep it from happening.

I think that consciousness cannot be destroyed—so death is not “evil.” But as we stand on the precipice of this planet murder and hugest crime of all time as far as we know before us and with us, as a species, being the cause of it… Well, I can only say the worst thing that I can imagine is having an eternity of consciousness knowing that I could have been part of the solution, but I trivialized it, I used a convenient spiritual belief/teaching/awareness to rationalize it so that I could continue asleep and unaware of the horror I participated in as I chose, through being afraid to look at the immense suffering involved, to blind myself with distractions—the perfect knife, the death that is not evil. hell-lake-of-fire2And so instead of an eternity of peace knowing that I stood against the greatest evil ever known and fought as hard as I could, although we failed… instead it could be an eternity of regret and loathing not being able to be unaware that I was a part of the horror, the monster, participated in the killing, and helped others to also, by participating in the feel-good cover-up, the blinding of eyes, the zombification of brains. As the deepest darkness ever known gradually but unmistakably arose on the horizon and came toward us, increasing in speed, becoming more fiercesome, detailed, clear, unmistakable, unavoidable, 166899_10150383077549679_650124678_8093125_721365237_n-the-beginning-is-near2and ever harder to be blind to, ever clearer in its brutality and the suffering, and unimaginable pain in its aftermath. And so I would spend an eternity knowing, not being able to not know that I WAS it, that I became it, helped it…that I was, er, Dead-Birds-Louisiana“part of the problem”… and I didn’t have to be.

And for everyone else I would ask: Care to choose what you’d like to have sitting around in that imperishable unending forever consciousness we’re “blessed” with?

1. While the severity/seriousness of our predicament is considerably watered-down and glossed over for the sake of consumption in the following report, it is instructive nevertheless. It shows the extent to which our precarious situation is known—and even communicated among the educated—albeit in a manner as to not threaten or scare the audience (into action to stop it!):

Has Earth’s Sixth Mass Extinction Already Arrived?

ScienceDaily (Mar. 5, 2011)—With the steep decline in populations of many animal species, from frogs and fish to tigers, some scientists have warned that Earth is on the brink of a mass extinction like those that occurred only five times before during the past 540 million years.

Each of these ‘Big Five’ saw three-quarters or more of all animal species go extinct.

2. Lyrics for “Earth Died Screaming” by Tom Waits:

Rudy’s on the midway
And Jacob’s in the hole
The monkey’s on the ladder
The devil shovels coal

With crows as big as airplanes
The lion has three heads
And someone will eat the skin that he sheds

And the earth died screaming
The earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you

Well hell doesn’t want you
And heaven is full
Bring me some water
Put it in this skull

I walk between the raindrops
Wait in Bug House Square
And the army ants
They leave nothin’ but the bones

And the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you

There was thunder
There was lightning
Then the stars went out
And the moon fell from the sky

It rained mackerel
It rained trout
And the great day of wrath has come
And here’s mud in your big red eye

The poker’s in the fire
And the locusts take the sky

And the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you

3. Earlier this year I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room and watching CNN reporting on the Fukushima reactor developments. I heard this sort of “religious” viewpoint from a stranger. We agreed on the magnitude and severity of this Fukushima event and that of the Gulf Spill, among others. We agreed even on the cause of such events and the way we are being misinformed on them—partly as patronizing misdirection, partly as cover-up. But where we disagreed was on whether it was important or not to do anything about them. As he put it, in his superior but cynical tone, “What can you do? We can’t do anything about it, besides it doesn’t matter anyway, it’s not THIS that is important…but only after death,” pointing heavenward at that. (*sigh*)

Paraphrase/ Summary/ Abstract of “The Twenty-Ninth Prasad” — by SillyMickel Adzema

cave

child-abuse-story-from-miss-e-21471927You like to think of yourselves, in your morality, as above us planetmates, who you refer to as “animals.” Yet, in addiction to your ego and blinded that way, you do not see the violence and torture you perpetrate on your own children. Even less do you see the way you wield that kind of barbarism on planetmates and all of the world outside your egos. It is you who are the real barbarians in Nature, actual abominations of Nature. cattlebeatingwhoswhoherekarmaFor you use ruthless, unnatural methods of control and “fashioning” which planetmates could never imagine until your kind came along and to this day would never employ themselves.

319660_312033818811144_100000135866875_1475849_876949879_nYou seek to turn everything into a product of direct consumption or into a “tool” to aid your greedy over-accumulation … now or in the future. All your activities are directed toward those ends, including your family and community lives.

user1863_1164423895With these ends in mind, you provide the necessities of survival for your young and for your captive planetmates. Additionally, you train and mold them and us to be of use in your acquisitive aims. For you, everything in Nature, including each other, is something to be either consumed/used immediately or to be invested in and nurtured for future consumption and/or use. You laud yourselves as compassionate in “training” and “teaching” your young and planetmates, and thereby you hide your true agendas even from even yourselves.

Neverending_Story_Pepper_Spray

For planetmates’ purpose for you is to amplify your ego in any way they can be used to. sheep-faceThe same is true for your children. Ultimately the purpose of children to you is as palliative for your fear of death. Brownie-Sale-boys-Closing-the-GapYour grandiosity would have you continue the existence of your ego forever. To that end, children are invested in as immortality projects. They are only useful or desired to the extent they embody you.

It is for that reason, that of your blown-up fear of uncertainty and death…ultimately rooted in your birth trauma…that you deprive both children and planetmates of independent life by seeking to turn them into extensions or copies of yourself.

occupydenver This desire to control and fashion everything outside of yourselves—including your children—in order ultimately to flee the thought of death represents an abomination in Nature. As you will see, no other planetmate has such a magnified fear of death.

Planetary Apocalypse – It’s a Trillion-Alarm Fire, Not a Litter Problem!

Fukushima nuclear power plant explosion

It’s a Trillion-Alarm Fire, Not a Boy-Scout Litter Campaign

nyan-the-earth

A Trillion-Alarm Fire—You Don’t Stop at the Grocery on Your Way Home!

I compare what is happening right now to cause planetary death in the relatively near future to a trillion-alarm fire with everyone looking the other way. I say you need to respond to this with the urgency of being in a world war, marshaling all available national and world resources to bear on it, and not with the complacency of a boy-scout litter pick up campaign.

hell-lake-of-fire2When you get a call at work that your house is on fire, you rush home worrying about whether your family is alive or dead, what, if anything, remains of your precious keepsakes, and so on. And you don’t, this time, stop on the way home to have a short visit with your mother at the nursing home, grab a few things at the grocery store, or even fill up your tank at the gas station! YOU GO STRAIGHT HOME AND TRY TO SAVE YOUR FAMILY AND HOME!

OIL-SPILL/ANNIVERSARYWhat follows, from May of 2010, is an example of the attitude of dealing with global apocalyptic events as if, like in this case, they are of similar importance to a plane going down. My point, of course, is that we should be dealing with them will all the urgency of a “trillion-alarm fire” happening. For each of these are disasters contributing to an ongoing catastrophic ecocidal process, the tip of which, only, we see in the Fukushima reactor blowups and the Gulf Oil Spill:

Matthews: “four-alarm fire” in Gulf! Landrieu smirks. Matthews: There are ways to suck up oil…it is a US emergency not just a BP business problem

May 25, 2010. Today, Chris Matthews likened the Gulf Oil Spill to a four-alarm fire. While Senator Mary Landrieu smirked, Matthews said, “I don’t know what the legality of this is, but the President of the United States has got this challenge, not just BP. globe-in-hand-custom-150x150BP has got a business challenge; we have a national challenge. North America that we inherited and would like to pass on to our future generations is in big trouble.”

Earlier, in answer to a question by Matthews as to whether there’s “anybody in the world that can come and collect petroleum…that’s out there in the Gulf right now…anybody that can collect it?” Landrieu responded saying, “Well, first of all, Chris, just let me say this: If Delta Airlines…plane goes down, I don’t think we necessarily call all the airlines to come in and help in this very specific way. Now, I will tell you, that all the oil companies have been helping since day one, informally….”

Are you as concerned as I am hearing that kind of cavalier attitude about human life?

Oil Spills and Reactor Blowups

“Where is the fierce urgency of Now?!!!”

bp-oil-spill-leaking-well-headjpg-61163ecf1c92e023_largeI can’t believe the nonchalance around the huge environmental catastrophes that have gone on in just the last year alone—specifically, the Gulf Oil Spill and the Fukushima Japan nuclear disaster. When the BP disaster was ongoing and gushing devastating amounts of oil into the Gulf, Donna Brazille, frustrated with the Obama Administration’s response to the Spill, fumed aloud, “Where is the fierce urgency of Now?!!!

Deepwater_Horizon_oil_spill_nasaBut these hugely unprecedented environmental catastrophes, daily spreading the damage to our planet, are just two canaries in a coal mine.

We are just beginning to understand the immensity of the damage to our planet the Fukushima disaster did. We will probably not be told the degree of radiation exposure from it we are receiving until long after people have been dying in droves from it.

fukushima-no-1-meltdown-confirmed-japan

96089cca74e0a83f6f20c14326a5_grandeThe BP oil spill of 2010 is, similarly, presenting ongoing planetary damage, which, like the Japan nuclear disaster, is, as I speak, not being reported. At this moment, in fact, dolphin and whale carcasses in the hundreds are washing up on Gulf beaches, birds are dying and some are simply dropping dead out of the sky, and we know for sure of at least one dead zone caused by the BP oil spill—a dead zone being an area in the ocean where nothing can live for lack of oxygen—which is a hundred miles long and twelve miles wide. I have heard reports of other dead zones cropping up in the Gulf, and it has been said they are growing in size with time. Beyond these we have to wonder how many more there are, yet unknown, and how great is the ongoing damage.

bp-oil-spill-njjpg-d111db9eb5c31461

But none of these dire events are being mentioned much in the media. We hear the reports, but then the media directs our attention to something else. 144152-second-blast-at-fukushima-mar14When Fukushima was being actively monitored by the media not long ago, I heard reported on CNN some very apocalyptic developments occurring there. Immediately afterward, CNN directed our attention to some in-depth reporting on a snake that had gotten loose in New York City. Now that snake made me sooo scared, I don’t know why!? *sarcasm*

So we cover our eyes to what is going on. *sigh*

We dismiss these events assuming that someone higher up than us is surely attending to the problem (dream on!). Though we would never admit it, we take comfort in thinking that people more in the know and influential—people with more status, degrees, power—are on the front line and will certainly make better decisions than we ever could. So doing, we blind ourselves to the fact that these people in charge are blinded and made stupid by their greed and self-interest. 101619634They see dimly, if at all, through that screen at the dire prospects they are juggling with. With such tunnel vision, they are hardly capable of seeing the interests of humanity, let alone acting on them. Furthermore, they console themselves with the thought that someone else higher up—or not, often just someone other than them—is “certainly” taking care of “the big things.”

Ultimately, people are passing the buck ALL the way up…to God. Seriously, this theological cul-de-sac is the ultimate, most reliable, place of retreat for the theistic as well as most of the non-theistic, if people were to be honest about their thoughts. But this is the most comforting of cop-outs and the greatest excuse to carry on acting recklessly out of all-too-trivial motivations of unhinged greed and blind self-interest.

smogcitych10What is worse is these things are only the tiny beginnings of much more that is bound to happen. If we do not listen up, and wake up, we’ll be just as unprepared and helpless when the even more dire and apocalyptic events unfold. This is not a time to curl up under the covers.

Fukushima Alert! Apocalypse Now?

Fukushima Apocalypse. Is this the end of the world? For real this time?

Linda Ayres shared this yesterday:

The radiation contamination from the melting down reactors is already contaminating the sea, and the air, and the food, and the children and all living things on this planet. The scientists believe there is no ‘solution’ to this extinction level event (except the ‘mad scientists’ who allege there is no danger in a nuclear holocaust). However, stopping the airborne spewing of the 1400 lethal radioactive isotopes will slow down this death machine.

We have nearly 10 months of non-stop radiation contamination hitting the planet…the radioactive debris from Japan has just recently hit the shores of North America….what do you think that travelling radiation did to the oceans?

Never before in the history of mankind has there been a disaster of this magnitude. Reactors require cooling pools … Fukushima lost its cooling pools in March…so you see, we’re doomed on those counts.

Tepco is alleging ‘cold shut down’ and ‘victory’…NO LIE LASTS FOREVER. DEATH COUNTS RISING. THE REACTOR CORES NEED TO BE COOLED…EITHER THE SEA MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE MELTING DOWN CORES, OR THE CORES MUST BE DROPPED INTO THE SEA. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN MARCH. MILLIONS MORE WILL DIE BECAUSE OF THE DELAYS AND WRINGING OF HANDS.

Advocates of genocide and death machines allege there is no real problem with multiple reactors melting down, contaminating the entire planet, and the same crowd also thinks the leaking radiation from local reactors is ‘harmless’. KNK – killer nuke knuckleheads….the crowd leading the lies….
Research the impacts of radiation poisoning…the kids will die first, around the world….genetic mutations…lots of illness and death…in Japan and around the world.

[The question of why it would be a good idea to put the nukes in the ocean since that will contaminate all the oceans of the globe and perhaps kill them off] is a common question. It’s been asked since March 11….meanwhile, the contamination of the planet accelerates….. World Powers must immediately address the issue, or they will have no one left to ‘govern’. Love one another like there is no tomorrow, as it is being cancelled….

Some comments:

To a comment that the above is full of hyperbole, I responded:

Michael Adzema: If she is only 1% correct, it is more important than 99% of the crap that gets shared on FB and takes up people’s time. The problem we have is with people’s inability to look at things this horrible. So I understnad why you would want to think the way you do. I want to think the way you do, too. But my reason tells me that would be foolish, since only a tiny fraction of this would mean death on a scale never before seen. Enjoy your denial while you can… And I very much hope you are right and she and I are fools.

Temujin Subodai: The should have entombed it while they had the chance. Just like Chernobyl. Just like Michio Kaku recommended.

Michael Adzema: That crossed my mind, too. I thought that was where we were headed, actually. But from this news it seems it has gone way beyond that by now. I’ve got no upnote to leave on.

Gela Onthemove: horrendous catastrophe to all life on this planet – how can anyone ignore it ?- I still have in my ears the refusal to international help offered to Tepco and Japan – in the very first days after the Tsunami…

Michael Adzema: I agree, Gela. And apparently too horrendous to be thought about…hence the reason it was never handled in any way that would have given us a chance. We are app going to die off like bacteria that has overrun its petri dish. I hope I am a fool and am wrong.

To a comment equating nuclear radiation with that which comes from the sun and wanted to hear more about actual radiation levels, I responded.

Michael Adzema: I think what you say is the propaganda they put out. Ann Coulter once said, “Radiation is good for you.” You are in bed with her. If you don’t like that, you need to rethink your position and do more research. I have. What I have found out is that you are horrifically wrong.

Btw, I have a little experience in this area. I was one of the group that brought nuclear power construction to a halt in the US in the early 80s. I worked on this full time for years. And we were right about what we said back then, as Fukushima has shown.

I have articles I could direct anyone to. I think that responses like this one are mostly part of people’s understandable defense systems to this kind of horror and that there is no real interest in knowing the facts.

No Nukes Is Good Nukes: Urgent Messages About Nuclear Threats and Fukushima Apocalypse…and what can be done

Timely, Urgent Messages by Ceila Starshine Levine and Linda Ayres

“No Nukes Is Good Nukes” – Awesome Music Video by Ceila Starshine Levine

A song about nuclear power and war, our dire straits, and about anti-nuclear activism.

Lyrics

Revisiting ashes of the past
Haunting memories that last and last
what we learned of Nagasaki/Hiroshima
leaves me in a dark uncharted arena
frightened bewildered face in a haze
dying burning people in a nuclear haze

I’m all alone deep inside
where most of society fears to abide
childhood friends look the other way
at such a loss as to what to say
can’t bear to learn of this alone
all the gruesome horrors I’ve been shown
Greenham women are everywhere
greet the dawn to heal this nightmare

No nukes is good nukes
Can’t you read between the lies
Us grassroots troubadour dudes
Atomic energy never flies

Trying to convince us we need nuclear plants
You’d never hear those words come from my aunts
Plutonium dust poisons our soil
Food, air, water for many years will spoil
Don’t want uranium traces in my drink
Safe nuclear storage you better rethink

California blackouts, is this a plot?
They want to bring back nuke plants, need them or not
Changing the order back to the Bush
Fat-assed Republicans sitting on their tush
Digging for oil on sacred lands
Raping of the people to fill their rich hands
Fossil fuel extinction, good-bye dinosaurs
They try to promote Reagan/Bush star wars

No nukes is good nukes
Can’t you read between the lies
Us grassroots troubadour dudes
Atomic energy never flies

Acid rain, cold war causing cancer
Arm’s race national security’s no answer
Iraq, China, Asia a threat what a hoax
Military spending they try to coax
decoys, missile shield failed tests for defense
They claim is safe at taxpayer’s expense

Spend our money on nuclear warheads and missiles
Instead of pianos, statacasters, amps, and whistles
Anesthetize ourselves with a mini nuke plan
What about a comprehensive test ban
Can we rise above the hooks of the greedy
not lose gains with China/Russia peace treaty?
All fear, paranoia, alienation behind NATO
A far reach from ideas of Plato

No nukes is good nukes
Can’t you read between the lies
Us grassroots troubadour dudes
Atomic energy never flies

Our worst fears we no longer hide
Spiritual awakening grows deep inside
2012 isn’t far awaqy
All spiritual paths can pave the way
Look inside each other’s eyes w2e find peace
And all warfare will come to cease
Harmonic convergence planting starseeds
Time resurgence bridging proceeds
We leave old residues behind
Finally let our true selves shine

No nukes is good nukes
Can’t you read between the lies
Us grassroots troubadour dudes
Atomic energy never flies

Now we must lay grounds for survival
70s, 80s direct action revival
Many men and women climbing over fences
Rising public awareness out of trenches
Blockades surrounding nuclear labs and plants
tents, camps, villages for communal stance

Many protests in coming times will mushroom
Sweep out space nukes with a witch’s broom
Songs, rituals, Christians, Pagans, other in jail
Nonviolent action authorities can’t derail
New webs of networks being spun
Hearts and minds of many we have won
Dreams of love and peace we’ll weave
Unlimited possibilities we believe


No nukes is good nukes
Can’t you read between the lies
Us grassroots troubadour dudes
Atomic energy never flies

HELLO Emperor Akihito (and others in the World to whom Fukushima may concern) –
an urgent letter by Linda Ayres, 12/17/2011

Linda Ayres:

Here’s the link… please share it …. WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW …. and the PEOPLE NEED HELP…. do what you can ….. tell your friends, tell your neighbors… the radioactive rubble is already burning… hurry! http://askaboutfukushimanow.com/2011/12/17/hello-emperor-akihito-and-others-in-the-world-to-whom-fukushima-may-concern/

Excerpts:

We beg of you to please reconsider the decision that has been made to burn the radioactive rubble which guarantees speedy death to the people of Japan, and beyond. Evidence of this concern is all over the walls of Facebook and the internet, even though there has been significant news censorship throughout the world.

I am Nobody from the United States of America. I am also a Citizen of the Internet. My thoughts, I am certain, represent many of my countrymen, many people from around this world, and certainly, many people of Japan.

WE ARE THE MANY. WE BEG OF YOU TO RECONSIDER THE DECISION MADE TO KILL THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN THROUGH THE BURNING OF RADIOACTIVE RUBBLE FROM THE AFTERMATH OF THE TSUNAMI AND THE CONTINUING MELTDOWN OF THE NUCLEAR REACTORS.

It is understood that the decision was made in hopes of making an honorable choice to right the horrific wrongs of the devastation that offers the entire world total destruction. We beg of you to reconsider.

Please know that it has not only been the country of Japan, and its esteemed leadership that has been tricked, deceived and destroyed by the nuclear power cartels, which some of us now call the KNK, the Killer Nuke Knuckleheads.

FOR JAPAN TO GIVE UP AND SURRENDER TO A SPEEDY DEATH IS THE ULTIMATE SHAME, AND THERE IS NO HONOR IN ANY FURTHER SUICIDES OR MURDERS IN JAPAN BECAUSE OF THIS HORRIFIC GLOBAL EVENT.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE LEADERSHIP OF JAPAN LIVE TO FIGHT THESE WRONGS, AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, AND THEN TO FIGHT THESE WRONGS WITH THE ANCESTORS, AND THOSE OF HUMANITY WHO WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT.

It has been nearly 10 months since the horrors of the tsunami and of the beginning of the nuclear meltdowns of the reactors at Fukushima, combined with the on-going radiation leaking of the entire 58 reactors in Japan. It is true that many Japanese will continue to become ill and die from the radiation poisoning, and we extend our deepest condolences.

Some statistics have shown evidence that even in America, during the first 6 months after the disaster, more than 35,000 Americans are dead as a result of the Fukushima meltdowns, and those numbers will also continue to escalate.

The debris from Japan’s tsunami has reached the shores of North America. Many of us will also become seriously ill and also die, as a result of the nuclear meltdown at Fukushima. Europe has been contaminated. People in the Southern Hemisphere delude themselves to think they are safe from the death that reaches out to the entire world because of Fukushima.

It is also true that many in Japan are already experiencing what some experts call “loss of executive function” from radiation poisoning. It is not a ‘mean’ term…..it describes loss of mental capacity from the exposure to the 1400 DEADLY radioactive isotopes produced by all reactors. Many of the US military personnel return from combat with similar health problems. Unfortunately, these consequences are irreversible.

In this communication, there are a few videos and links for your viewing and careful consideration. These are things that people of the world are pondering and praying on….
