Radioactive Lake Michigan

Something that I haven’t heard about in the mainstream media. I think it time to reassess our stance on nuclear power. Getting real sick of hearing about reactor leaks and mutant fish.

Sum Response to Nuclear War

Is it not a little strange how little of a response there has been to North Korea detonating a damn Nuclear Bomb last    week?

Over Pumping Undeground Water linked to Climate Change

“Over-pumping of groundwater for irrigation is mining dry the world’s ancient Pleistocene-age, ice-sheet-fed aquifers and, ironically, at the same time increasing sea-level rise, which we haven’t factored into current estimations of the rise,” says Allen.
