Description:

Abby Martin goes over updates to the chemical spill in West Virginia and the coal-ash spill in North Carolina, exposing the human and environmental impact as well as the lack of accountability that accompanies tens of thousands of similar ecological catastrophes that occur in the US every year due to the US’ addiction to fossil fuel.

NC Authorities Say River Has Elevated Arsenic From Coal Ash Spill

Levels four times higher than what’s considered safe for swimming; critics charge lax regulation

North Carolina’s environmental agency says it was wrong to declare the arsenic levels in the Dan River safe for people after a massive coal ash spill. An environmental group had said Friday that its tests indicated the water’s chemical levels were high.

US nearly detonated atomic bomb over North Carolina – secret document (Guardian, Sep 20, 2013):

A secret document, published in declassified form for the first time by the Guardian today, reveals that the US Air Force came dramatically close to detonating an atom bomb over North Carolina that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that devastated Hiroshima.

The document, obtained by the investigative journalist Eric Schlosser under the Freedom of Information Act, gives the first conclusive evidence that the US was narrowly spared a disaster of monumental proportions when two Mark 39 hydrogen bombs were accidentally dropped over Goldsboro, North Carolina on 23 January 1961. The bombs fell to earth after a B-52 bomber broke up in mid-air, and one of the devices behaved precisely as a nuclear weapon was designed to behave in warfare: its parachute opened, its trigger mechanisms engaged, and only one low-voltage switch prevented untold carnage.

Health Blogger Threatened With Up To 120 Days In Jail For Advocating Paleo Diet That Cured His Diabetes

And by the way:

The Gerson Therapy cures diabetes II within 7 to 14 days. And that is not an advice. It’s a fact!


Health blogger threatened with jail time for advocating Paleo diet that cured his diabetes (Natural News, April 26, 2012):

Internet free speech is under assault in America, and a dangerous new trend has surfaced that threatens to throw nutritional bloggers in jail for advocating healthy diets on their blogs or websites. As you read this, a blogger who wrote about using the Paleo diet to overcome diabetes is being threatened with jail time in North Carolina, where the state Board of Dietetics / Nutrition claims his nutritional advocacy is equivalent to the crime of “practicing nutrition without a license.”

His name is Steve Cooksey, and his website is http://www.diabetes-warrior.net

He’s being targeted by state “dieticians” (which is another word for “nutritional moron” as you’ll see below) who say that Chapter 90, Article 25 of the North Carolina General Statutes makes it a misdemeanor to “practice dietetics or nutrition.” His website’s advocating of the Paleo diet for individuals who have health challenges is, they claim, a violation of law.

So they’ve threatened him with arrest if he does not take down his website… or at the very least stop advocating the Paleo diet to readers.

North Carolina To Pay As Many As 2000 Eugenics Victims Forcibly Sterilized Decades Ago $50,000 Each

NC proposes to pay $50,000 each to as many as 2,000 people forcibly sterilized decades ago (Washington Post, Jan. 10, 2012):

RALEIGH, N.C. — As many as 2,000 people forcibly sterilized decades ago in North Carolina should get $50,000 each, a task force said Tuesday, marking the first time a state has moved to compensate victims of eugenics programs that weeded out the “feeble-minded” and others deemed undesirable.

The payout, which could amount to as much as $100 million, still needs approval from the Legislature. But the prospects for passage of some sort of compensation are promising, since the governor immediately embraced the recommendation, and the House speaker has come out in favor of payments.

While dozens of states had programs in the 20th century that allowed people to be sterilized against their will in the name of improving the human race, none of the others has offered anything more than apologies.

Victims Speak Out About North Carolina’s Eugenics Program

Victims speak out about North Carolina sterilization program, which targeted women, young girls and blacks (MSNBC, Nov 7, 2011):

Elaine Riddick was 13 years old when she got pregnant after being raped by a neighbor in Winfall, N.C., in 1967.  The state ordered that immediately after giving birth, she should be sterilized.  Doctors cut and tied off her fallopian tubes.

“I have to carry these scars with me.  I have to live with this for the rest of my life,” she said.

Riddick was never told what was happening.  “Got to the hospital and they put me in a room and that’s all I remember, that’s all I remember,” she said.  “When I woke up, I woke up with bandages on my stomach.”

Riddick’s records reveal that a five-person state eugenics board in Raleigh had approved a recommendation that she be sterilized. The records label Riddick as “feebleminded” and “promiscuous.” They said her schoolwork was poor and that she “does not get along well with others.”

“I was raped by a perpetrator [who was never charged] and then I was raped by the state of North Carolina.  They took something from me both times,” she said.  “The state of North Carolina, they took something so dearly from me, something that was God given.”

It wouldn’t be until Riddick was 19, married and wanting more children, that she’d learn she was incapable of having any more babies. A doctor in New York where she was living at the time told her that she’d been sterilized.

“Butchered.  The doctor used that word…  I didn’t understand what she meant when she said I had been butchered,” Riddick said.

North Carolina was one of 31 states to have a government run eugenics program.  By the 1960s, tens of thousands of Americans were sterilized as a result of these programs.

Eugenics was a scientific theory that grew in popularity during the 1920s.  Eugenicists believed that poverty, promiscuity and alcoholism were traits that were inherited. To eliminate those society ills and improve society’s gene pool, proponents of the theory argued that those that exhibited the traits should be sterilized.  Some of America’s wealthiest citizens of the time were eugenicists including Dr. Clarence Gamble of the Procter and Gamble fortune and James Hanes of the hosiery company.  Hanes helped found the Human Betterment League which promoted the cause of eugenicists.

North Carolina State University Nuclear Reactor Is Leaking: Public Not Informed Because Amount Of Radioactivity Compares To Receiving An X-Ray

Flashback:

Prof. Hiroaki Koide of Kyoto University On The UGLY TRUTH About The Nuclear Disasters Of Chernobyl And Fukushima (Video)

‘Compares to receiving an x-ray’??? How long until this BS comparisons cease to exist? (Rhetoric question.)


NC State says nuclear reactor leak poses no threat (ABC NEWS, July 07, 2011):

RALEIGH — North Carolina State University says a small leak in its nuclear research reactor is not a public health threat.

The reactor is housed in the Burlington Nuclear Engineering Laboratory. The building is located at 2500 Katharine Stinson Drive.

N.C. State physicist Gerry Wicks said Thursday the reactor is leaking about 10 gallons of water per hour. Facilities are only required to report leaks in excess of 350 gallons an hour.

NC State said the leak was suspected on Friday and confirmed on Saturday. It said the public was not informed sooner because of the low level of danger. The amount of radioactivity was compared to what someone might receive getting an x-ray.

Alert: North Carolina – Radiation Test – 124CPM At Grandfather Mountain!!! (4/24/2011)


Added: 24.04.2011

Measured at the Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.

coordinates: 36 5 39 N , 81 49 59 W

A ten minute measurement made at 5,299 ft. Just southwest of the Grandfather mountain visitor center.

CPM over 10 minutes reached a high reading of 1240 = 124 CPM.

Levels over 100 are of concern, and considered HIGH.

Some have raised the question of “radon” coming out of the rocks..

IF THIS AMOUNT OF RADON WAS COMING OUT OF THE ROCKS .. everyone in the park would be evacuated. Going back to the same place tomorrow to measure WITHOUT being “near” any rocks to settle ANY skeptics, and will compare the two videos.
