Banzai Pipeline 2014 Triple Crown of Surfing Championship

After Doing a Solar Troubleshoot on the North Shore of Oahu, I decided to enter the fray and crawl into Pipeline area.     I knew some type of surf event was going on, but hadn't paid attention to details.   LOL, it was the triple crown championship.    Dec 20th was the last day that it could be held, and conditions were excellent.    Enjoy the report, I hope it gives you a feel of what the whole awesome event was like.     Drop a comment.  stock out

At the bottom is a still picture wave sequence showing a successful "pipe" and a video of the Champions perfect 10 run.

Gabriel Medina Took the Championship, he is from Brazil, and that is a first for Brazil.

Julian Wilson Took second place.    He is from Australia

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quite an amount of infrastructure is set up for the event

 Competition Status is nicely updated
 This is the judges booth and "insider hangout".    They give surf runs a score on a scale up to 10 being perfect
 There are lots of cameras, TV video, and stuff in the air, there are also professional water videotographers and photographers who free swim in the surf zone to get spectacular coverage.
 Above several individual citizens were operating private drones with video.     One operator informed me the drone was around $1000 and the video was $500 and up.

The waves were big and often nicely formed for the legendary pipeline "pipe"

Masses of people from all walks of life, many races, all age groups, and many countries converge on pipeline.    Some are dressed fully clothed protected from the strong sun, and others are dressed in string bikinis, and everything in between.     Somehow the "speedo" that male Europeans clung to for decades has seemed to completely be extinct.





 There is a support crew of jetskies / waverunner tow boats for safety and to help tow surfers out to the zone.    There are also the regular lifeguards on the beach on their four runners


 The surf is big and plenty of barrels and high flying action

 As the surfers come out of the water, they walk right through the crowds on the beach.    They are all laid back and more than happy to pose for a selfie with a fan.    The pet pig was a real hit on the beach too.    I hardly saw any dogs, just a few small ones, they seemd to be mostly off leash.

Lots of cameras, phone cameras, drones, tablets.  There is a fair amount of open consumption of beer, and lots of that was bottles which I would shy away from due to chance of glass on the beach, but I saw no broken bottles and when everyone left the beach, it was spotless, not a can or even candy wrapper.    Amazing respect for the Aina.

OK the surfs all over, time for the closing ceremonies.    Check out the guy tipping back a brewski, and does this girl look a little bit happy, LOL


 Here is Queenie who will present the awards

 
 Now the awards, a few leis, a hug from the Pipeline "Queen", and a big trophy.


 Lots of news coverage




 Watch this wave sequence, surfer gets on wave, the pipe develops and completely covers the surfer, which seems like minutes even though it is just seconds, as everyone wonders, will he pop out or was he already crushed inside the tube.







The end.   PS are all "stock photos"

Asahi Quotes NRA Chief "The Only Responsible Thing is to Dump the Radiation Into the Ocean"

Paraphrase the article....

http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201412130042

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We never had a real plan, so we decided to act like we were doing something partly useful, and we built a bunch of tanks, except that they were shitty tanks, only designed and  intended for a 1 year use and constructed by less than "craigslist" level workers, mostly alcoholics and those marginalized citizens in debt to Yakuza who were forced to work at the plant without proper training or tools. 

Then of course, we forgot that water in pipes and pumps will freeze in winter thus expanding and breaking the pipes and pumps, especially the ones we didn't insulate, so that caused trouble.   Of course the water filtration system for the initial batch of radionuclides broke several times and a few times the workers sprayed themselves with concentrated radiation because they didn't understand how to operate the valves.   Then the ALPS system, meant to take out the strontium, was years late and then hardly worked.    But that's OK because we were instructed by the nice economic hitmen from USA nuclear cartel to just ignore the strontium altogether or at least report it a one millionth of the real level.   Actually one of the economic hitman, and really hitwoman, Hillary Clinton, who assured us that USA would jack up their allowable levels in food 10 times higher and buy all our food exports without testing any of it...as long as we followed their corporate interest and rolled out the BP game plan.


Tanaka, past the smiling stage, stated "We got to dump this crap in the ocean, and soon"
-------------------------------------------------------

We tried to stop the water from leaving the plant area after contacting the 2 or 3 underground coriums (honestly we don't know).     But whatever we tried in keystone cop fashion, it didn't work.     We finally figured out from going to a "Nukepro" website that what we should have done was to block and divert the old river water that was coming into the plant area....i.e. block it on the upper side and pump it out and around BEFORE it got to the coriums.    Sheesh, we wish he would have told us that out of the gate, but by then we were committed to pouring "special concrete" and then large investment in the high technology ice wall was well underway and we couldn't be distracted from executed that plan that had already been approved.

We are very sorry, but it's not our fault since GE told us they got our back with media coverage and will even help us get some Olympic money.    

And that is a good thing because GE owes us because they made us take down a mountain and build the plant basements below ocean water level and in the river bed....all because they refused to redesign their "Mark 1" pumping system to pump water up to the original land height that the plant could have been built on, and safely out of tsunami way.    So, GE owes us, and bring on those Olympics, we are not concerned that the finest physical genetic examples of humans will be placed into a high radiation zone likely of producing internal contamination since they will be trained to smile, and with the GE news cameras all over, they are more likely to be smiling all the time.   Big Ol' Yamashita smile to everyone!

We are kind of out of ideas, but we find that it doesn't hurt to dump radiation and heavy metals into the Taiheyo (Pacific Ocean) since the only 2 people testing for radiation in the Pacific is a crippled old ex-commercial diver in a dinghy in Canada, and some solar guy in Hawaii who is taking video of radiation in airplanes and radiation in boiled off seawater.     Oh, and Woods Hole is doing some "testing", hehe, that was real slick of the radiation industry to pretend their testing was "crowd sourced" whilst the majority of their money for operations and their salaries was from government and corporate interests.  

Even though the ocean is clearly dying, we hope we can bring it back by restarting reactors (aka Big Green) in order to reduce CO2 and global warming.     Nuclear is the only thing that can save our world, even though the president of GE stated that nuclear no longer makes any sense.   As a representative of TEPCO I often feel confused and stressed out because GE won't even tell me the meaning of Cognitive Dissonance.  

But after touring the plant this week, it is clear that those tanks are the biggest danger to mankind and the plant.    After all, those tanks are a big threat, if one breaks, it will contaminate the tank farm areas, and then how can keep employing those untrained alcoholics to walk through the tank area tighetning bolts on the bolt together tanks that are already beyond their design life?     More tanks could break and then the whole plant would  be contaminated.     We would have to evacuate, and then some of the fuel under 5 years old could boil off the water and go on fire and then where would we be?    Back to square one.   Plus now we in within 5 years of the Olympics, so we cannot allow any risk to the Olympics.  

Clearly, although some people may be upset, the only responsible thing is to dump the tank water into the ocean to protect people.    Ganbate!

Nuclear is Dead -- Jerry Rifkin at Wermuth Asset Management

1) From a business perspective, it's over
2) Its been dead in the water since 3 miles island and Chernobyl
3) The claim is climate change, but nuke is only 6% of world power, and climate people say it would have to be 20% to have any substantial effect.  
4) That would mean 1600 new plants, and replace 400 existing
5) That would be 3 new plants every month for 40 years to get to 20%, and by then climate change would have run its course
6) We have no way to deal with the waste
7) Recycling fuel, aka MOX leaves lots of plutonium around in an age of uncertainty and terrorism
8) Uranium is getting more scarce and 2025 to 2035 will see big shortages and thus high prices
9) We don't have the water.   In France 40% of all the fresh water in the country is needed just to cool the reactors, and that water comes out hot which further exasperates ecological problems.

 10) Plus the nuclear asshats have been lying through their teeth right out of the gate, its all based on lies to protect "their precious"



Nuclear Poems by Curly, Never Trust an Atoms, and Gratuitous Zombies

OK I am channeling my inner geek, I actually bought my first over $15 t-shirt, LOL.    At the swap meet at Aloha stadium they have cheap tshirts 7 for $20, and pretty good quality T-shirts at 5 for $20.

But I guarantee I won't look as good as this model, LOL

Maybe I'' coin my own t-shirt...."Never Trust an Atoms Abuser, Atoms stay mad a long time"





curly
Yes, it's very plain to see
Deadly toxins kill the bee.
Talk of torture in the news
Death in Furgeson if you choose.

In this age of endless war
Important is your credit score.
"The precious" is a bottom line.
Forget those starfish in decline.

In the streets a protester cries
Wiping tear gas from his eyes
"A little justice would be nice"
American pie–give us a slice."

From uranium's daughters none can run
Sleezyum is my favorite one
I'm sure you've all met americum
But may I please introduce californicum

So well we know it's all a mess
But how can we get redress
Everything tried with little sucksess
Alas, a secret I must nigh confess

Achilles invincible 'cept for his heel
T'was Goliath's fate one stone did seal
But to see this modern monster downed
The silver bullet has been found!

Right in your hand is held the key,
Arrow and stone to set us free.
Slide it in your ignition switch.
Do the implication make you twitch?

Now poke your chariot into gear
Rev your engine, dispell all fear
Have success where all else failed
When you're sold out and banks get bailed.

Into beasty arteries you need drive
For coagulation you must strive.
Stop the blood to its brain
Watch now, she writhes in so much pain.

Now don't feel sorry for the beast
A world's treasures she has fleeced
And to mention not your health least.
Justice found, now the beast deceased.

And some more Snorg Ts Chicks





And is this the new Troll 5.0?   There sure is a lot of money trying to disrupt ENENEWS and the anti-nuclear movement.



And finally, an oldie but goody, 93 one liner lies of nuke set to music and video.

I am writing to you about the death of the Pacific Ocean. No baby whale has lived over the age of one year. Tens of thousands of otters, seals, walruses and whales have exhibited lesions, hemorrhaging, and wasting diseases. The starfish are virtually extinct. Birds drop from the sky. The seafloor is littered with thousands of decomposing fish and mammals. All of you have at some point expressed concern and bafflement as to what might be causing the extinction of all life in the Pacific Ocean.
I am not a scientist, but one does not need a scientific background to understand the sea star, sea lion, sea urchin, whale and sea life die off in the Pacific. One just needs the courage to address the mutated elephant in the room: Fukushima.

Three coriums have melted through the containment vessels and into the earth, creating a fission process and China Syndrome nightmare can never be resolved. At the very beginning, TEPCO admitted that they would solve this only after they had invented the technology to do so, stating their best estimate date for this “invention” was ten years. There is no sarcophagus, allowing huge concentrations of radiation to seep into the earth, water and air unchecked for almost four years. TEPCO has admitted that it has been dumping radioactive water into the Pacific from the beginning. Well, they admitted it and lied about it at the same time- typical TEPCO speak. Every few months or years they revise their estimates to admit far more radiation contaminated the environment than previously admitted. Japan has burned radioactive waste for years, sending even more radiation into the jet stream. 

You may have noticed in the news that just three weeks after the Fukushima coriums began their decent toward the earth, Fukushima isotopes were found in spinach, strawberries and arugula in Northern California and in the milk in Vermont. Fukushima isotopes were also found in the sea kelp in Northern California and Canada, at which point both the US and Canadian governments stopped the monitoring, at least officially. Anaheim, CA had highest amount of radioactive iodine-131 measured by any EPA air monitoring station in Continental U.S. (http://enenews.com/anaheim-ca-has-highest-amount-of-radioac…) Uranium-234 was detected in Hawaii, Southern California and Seattle. Conveniently, the link at the EPA site has disappeared, but you can see a copy of the EPA RadNet Air Concentration Measurement Data here:

http://enenews.com/uranium-234-detected-hawaii-southern-cal…

You might also note that one of the commentators (Radio) wrote, “Why are there pages of data in the report, yet only the very first page contains any numbers for Uranium and plutonium?? Additionally, the uranium is reported around the 21-24th of March, but there are no numbers for Uranium after that, even though the numbers for Iodine and Cesium continue up until last week…”
And now the report is gone. How convenient. “I see nothing!” 

Radiation was in the water and soil from the beginning of this disaster. It’s not about waiting for it to arrive. It was here within a week of 3/11 and that was documented by official sources at the very beginning. I own a little bookstore and coffeehouse in Nicaragua and I seem to know more about Fukushima than the marine biologists studying the die-off of the Pacific. How sad. It is evident from your biographies that you care passionately about the ocean. However, I don’t think you really care about the consequences of the die off because you are afraid to mention the infamous F word and for that, all of your years of study and activism have gone to waste because you don’t have the courage to state the obvious.

The common denominator is Fukushima. Organisms that have survived 450 million years of earth changes, ocean acidification and temperature changes, pole shifts, comets and who knows what else are now virtually extinct. Maybe there is a virus, but a virus does not attack all organisms with 100 percent morbidity and when viruses mutate, they become weaker. All mutations encounter risks when jutting, which is why most mutations end in failure and the virus naturally weakens. And a virus still needs a host to survive, and yet we are looking at 100 percent morbidity rates. What changed? 

To claim that you do not understand why this is happening is absurd. You can speak up or become part of the cover-up and responsible for extinguishing life on this planet. There is no gray area. Only when people realize the seriousness of the situation will anything be done about it. And many people do understand, even if you are “baffled” and “mystified” as to why the Pacific Ocean is dying. And you would, too, had you not collectively and conveniently ignored headlines like, “Japan Gov’t-funded Report: MOX fuel particles found over 100 km from Fukushima — Plutonium-239 levels ‘significantly enhanced’ after Reactor 3 explosion - Nuclear fuel material transported in atmosphere across long distances; 

Fukushima Worker: They’re covering up how much contamination is flowing into ocean; Scientist: We are measuring higher radiation levels off Japan — Plume near California already exceeds expectations, and will keep rising for years to come; Cleanup can’t be done… They lied from the start, Tepco is a den of inequity; Officials have “admitted failure” at Fukushima plant — Giving up on attempts “to prevent highly contaminated water from pouring into ocean”; 

US Nuclear Professor: Fukushima “a really major event here”, Washington had radioactive aerosols 100,000 times normal; “Far more bigger accident than we’re hearing” — Model shows West Coast completely blacked out due to particles covering area; Massive radiation spike at Fukushima: 40,000% increase below ground between Units 1 & 2 this month — Order of magnitude above record high set last year; Attempt to stop flow of highly radioactive liquid at Fukushima “in doubt” — AP: Much of it is pouring in trenches going out into Pacific — Experts: Amount entering ocean “increasing by 400 tons daily” — Problem “so severe” it’s consuming nearly all workers at site;

 Canadian scientists detect “significant” concentrations of radioactive material off West Coast, levels double in months since last test; Marine Chemist: “Much greater concern” over Fukushima releases that will be hitting shores of US & Canada - Lack of data “really disturbing”; ‘Fukushima radiation identified off northern California’ — 50% of samples around West Coast test positive; Nuclear Expert: Fukushima is a pretty close approximation of ‘The China Syndrome’; Melted fuel cores burned through containment vessels and material is below reactor structures mixing with groundwater — Essentially it’s a machine that’s washing radioactivity into the sea; Food products ‘heavily contaminated’ by Fukushima found in US;

 Over 30,000 pCi/kg of cesium, also had Cobalt-60 and Antimony-124 — FDA: We found no Fukushima contamination in US food supply during routine monitoring; Radiation levels have surged at Fukushima plant — 100,000% of previous record high — TV: “Officials say they don’t know the cause… Typhoon may be to blame”; Sailor talks Fukushima’s Impact on Pacific: “It’s dead… for thousands of miles there was nothing” between US & Japan — “Like sailing in a dead sea… everything’s all gone. No birds, no fish, no sharks, no dolphins, no turtles, nothing”; 

Gov’t: US, Canada hit with “high concentrations” of Fukushima nuclear material; Tremendous impact all over world, enormous public health consequences — West Coast plume was 500% of level requiring NRC be notified — UC Berkeley Prof.: “We did indeed see high… fairly… I mean… some… level of radiation”

By the way, for a mere $725. on Amazon, you can purchase the Radiation Alert InspectorEXP Microprocessor-Based Ionizing Radiation Detector with External Detector (http://www.amazon.com/Radiation-Alert-Inspect…/…/ref=sr_1_2…). I have one and I don’t have the need for one - yet. I use it to test my blueberries that I import from the US and I will start monitoring the fish on the southern Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. 

Perhaps you could just charge one to your department and use it the next time you examine the dead aquatic specimens. You may be quite surprised how bad it is. The sea lion and whales dying of brain lesions, birds dropping from the sky, and the wasting sea stars are all victims of Fukushima. There are no ifs, buts or possibilities about it. It is fact, whether you admit to it or bury your heads in the sand for a paycheck.
 
It is imperative that we shut down all nuclear power plants around the world immediately. Nuclear power plants rely on external fuel sources to generate electricity, and most have less than four days back up diesel. No fuel for the generators will cause the NPPs to melt down. You may have also noticed that the majority of NPPs are located on active fault lines, flood zones and coastal areas subject to tsunamis. Germany shut down their plants because of Fukushima, but an assortment of malevolent entities in competition for Master of Universe (or at least the Earth) want to build more of these death traps while having no way to store the waste for the next several million years.
It is also imperative that you tell the truth, regardless of whether a government or corporate entity tells you to lie. 

 If you lie and say you don’t understand why the ocean is dying, you are not a scientist; you are a lowly sycophant who sold your integrity, ethics and soul for a paycheck. I don’t mean to be rude, but this situation is too serious to worry about hurting someone’s ego. You know the truth, even if you don’t want to admit it. And if after all these years of study you are still stupefied, then you should be stripped of your credentials and return every penny that you have ever received from any government and private organization through grants, scholarships and employment, for you have sold out the planet and all of its life forms with your complicity of silence. 

To claim that you don’t understand and are baffled and puzzled by this “mystery” shows the depths of your ignorance or your desperate need to maintain employment with organizations that actively lie about the effects of Fukushima. At some point you have to stand up for what is right and true. 

I am sorry if your egos are hurt, but my heart hurts each time I read your quotes that fail to address the greatest problem our civilization has ever known. You may choose to be silent, but I will not be complicit in the genocide of the planet, regardless of hurt feelings.

"State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: 'I, the state, am the people.'" - Friedrich Nietzsche

Small Modular Reactors and Why They are a Complete Economic Failure, Another Lie of The Nuclear Cartel


Drop a comment folks, and also sign up as a follower on the right side, Mahalo!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When a technology fails...insiders who stand to benefit decide to trot out something similar but  with a "this time it's different" flair.   Whenever a lie spotter sees the "this time its different" approach, they ramp up their spidey sense.  


In the past, nuclear plants have taken advantage of economies of scale by placing multiple nuke plants next to each other.   They can benefit from economies of scale by such things as a common perimeter defense system, a common overall security system, a common pool of skilled scientists and top level technical people, a common pool of trained mechanics and technicians, a common pool of transportation and receiving facilities, a common pool of  electrical distribution to the consumer,  a common pool of backup electrical and other cooling systems.

Small "modular" nuclear reactors will NOT benefit from any of these economies of scale.    

But since big plants blow up, sometimes in nuclear type explosions like the prompt moderated criticality at Fukushima 3 building (we are not sure if it was the MOX filled spent fuel pool, of the MOX filled reactor itself).   But since big plants blow up.....the nuclear cartel proposes that smaller and more widespread nuclear will be safer.   

To state the obvious, the SMRs or small modular reactors, will not have the same ability to field resources for security, operational expertise, local engineering expertise, and maintenance expertise.

And a Carrington event  which might knock out 20 large plants in a geographic area like the east coast,  and cause evacuations from specific areas as they melt down.    Well if the area was peppered with the joke of SMR, there would be less backup power and a widespread sacrifice zone that people would not be able to drive out of without taking a "husky" and eventually deadly dose.

THE WHOLE ABSURDITY OF MAKE THEM SMALLER MAKES THEM SAFER, is a joke, a massive lie of the dying Bronto, the nuclear industry.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look at this promoter below, everything we need to be against, is everything he is promoting without fact or argument.

“A bunch of things are having to be rethought. Things that we thought were against green, like nuclear and bio-technology and even geo-engineering are, in light of climate, actually now green,” Brand said.

______________________________________________________________
 And finally I propose a new thoery that will alienate even the few UK citizens who used to come to the Nukepro.     The more desperate a "Failed Empire" is, the more they refuse to look at the truth.

See below, pageviews at Nukepro for Tuesday.     Note that UK is not even on the list.    I get more visitors from Romania than the entire UK, more visitors from South Korea.  

The UK is so effed up, they refuse to even look at the truth.    Think Sellafield.    They don't even have the cajones to leave the European Union which is also failed.   

If you know anyone in the UK send them some blue pills, point them to nukepro and ENENEWS

Massive Radiation Found in the Upper Atmosphere

Quick report here.   Drop a comment folks, and sign up as a follower, right on the right hand side of the blog.

Very interesting findings on my last airplane flight.    It was during the day, so good lighting, and no adjacent passengers, so I could do plenty of Geiger testing without getting anyone upset.

I have video and pictures are will place these into a post at Nukepro when I can

There was considerable radiation differences in different areas on the flight path, and at the same cruising altitude.    Basically 11 CPS to 15 CPS.   CLICKS PER SECOND!   not per minute, per second!

The upper atmosphere is FULL of radiation.    Much more so than 20 years ago.     Cosmic radiation is various stuff, and what you will pick up on an Inspector Geiger will be gamma.    There is no beta radiation in Cosmic.   

A few centimeters of flesh will stop all Beta radiation

By putting the Pancake Style Geiger on my leg, I can effectively block all beta coming from the "downside".     Beta from the "upside" will still hit the Geiger tube, so I can block half the Beta

In multiple repeated tests the readings quickly ramped down from 15 CPS to 11 CPS doing the Leg Beta Blocker test routine <LBB>(TM stock 2014).     This is a delta of 4 CPS due to Beta being blocked on one side of the pancake geiger.

Since I was blocking 50% of the Beta with the flesh of my leg (or stomach as shown in the video), this means there is 2 times 4 CPS beta in the aircraft.   8 CPS Beta, of 480 CPM Beta inside the air of the airplane.    I see.

This Beta, to repeat, is not Cosmic.   Fukushima is here.

Review the Nukepro Geiger interpretation chart here to see what 240CPM means.  
http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/2012/04/geiger-counter-interpretation.html

Here are 2 videos shot back to back that shows the massive Beta reduction using "body shielding".

video


video


This is 13 CPS, Clicks per second.    A normal background radiation level in modern days is 25 CPM Clicks per minute.    Do you see an issue here?

This is a different display mode on the Radiation Alert Inspector, it shows micro Sv per hour, based on assumption of Cesium as the isotope.    At 4 mSv/H there is a real risk of cancer if exposed for 90 days, see the table below.    Flight crews are in danger.



Craig-123 from ENENEWS contributed the following information

This other site did more like a "data logging" using altitude, but claimed it all to be cosmic, which is gamma and Xrays

http://www.spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=16&month=11&year=2014

And here is some stuff from Anti-Proton

Here is a view of the "Alpha window" on the backside of the inspector, the door actually makes a nice standoff so you can put the inspector over a radiation test plate and yet not touch the sample.


United Airlines cabin, complete with high beta emitting air.
