Beyond Obama’s ‘Nuclear Security’ Hokus POTUS

‘Nuclear Security’ – The Quintessential Oxymoron?

It ended, with no apparent sense of irony, on April Fools’ Day. Obama’s much-heralded ‘Nuclear Security Summit’ came to a close on April 1st in Washington, D.C., having drawn representatives from about 50 countries…minus Russia, which declined to attend citing a “shortage of mutual cooperation” and the exclusion of some of its allies from the invitation list.

Compared to the lofty vision outlined in Obama’s famous 2009 Prague speech of a ‘world without nuclear weapons,’ the POTUS conference marked a sad measure of how far short of his stated intentions his actual accomplishments have fallen.

To be fair, by no means all of that failure can be said to be Obama’s fault. There are many counter-forces.

There’s a global system that profits handsomely from the combined nuclear energy-weapons-waste economy.

There’s a worldwide elite whose members derive much power and privilege from it.

There’s the domestic ‘deep state’ system of the ‘defense and security’ industry with its revolving door to government, which is heavily invested in the permanent war economy.

Then there are the people the President has chosen to surround himself with, some of whom disagree with him and work to undermine his stated policies.

It remains to be seen if the controversial ‘Iran Deal’ will stand as a signature accomplishment of Obama’s tenure. But the facts remain that, despite his boasts that he has ‘reduced’ the U.S. nuclear arsenal, the actual cuts amount to a mere 5% – from 4,950 operational nuclear warheads to 4,700, according to the Federation of American Scientists. As former Defense Secretary William Perry points out, that’s more than enough to destroy the world many times over.

And, as Perry and other former U.S. officials disapprovingly observe, Obama’s plan to spend over $1 trillion to ‘upgrade’ America’s stockpile of nuclear bombs and their delivery systems not only makes their use more likely, but has also triggered a New Arms Race.

Finally, the President’s ‘all of the above’ energy policy treats nuclear energy generation as ‘clean,’ ignoring the massive carbon footprint of the atomic fuel chain that makes uranium essentially a fossil fuel. It also gives massive funding and support to developing a new generation of nuclear reactors, as well as marketing existing U.S. designs world-wide to such clients as warring Arab oil states. https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/middle-east/2015-05-25/nuclear-power-people

12 Unspeakable Realities

Those who advocate for nuclear energy as a response to climate change, or for new nuclear weapons in pursuit of ‘national security,’ must ignore or deny an overwhelming burden of facts from the history and legacy of these nuclear technologies so far.

Here are just a few:

— Our planet is at grave risk of hemisphere wide blackout and 50 nuclear plants melting down

It isn’t just that an EMP will shut down the grid that puts nuclear plants at risk., because power outages expose the lack of maintenance of backup generators.

But EMPs also fry electronics. Even if backup generators could function, the electronics to tell them, “go, turn on, operate” could be completely fried by an EMP.

That, in addition to all the other reasons, is why nuclear plants must be shut down now, immediately, and funding poured into groups like Planetary Association for Clean Energy http://pacenet.homestead.com/ in collaborations of international scientists in cleanup and de-toxification of nuclear waste., as well as the development of real clean energy sources.

An excellent video with this post explains the situation with CMEs and the weakening magnetic field of the Earth.

How much of the weakened magnetic field is because of what humans have done and how much humans have not just forgotten but also, have abandoned? The connection to Earth, the active spiritual connection and relationship with Earth as living entity — this has been eliminated in favor of “science” — dissection, mathematics, chemical properties, smashing atoms. Until and unless that changes, until humans re-embrace the Earth, I suspect that the magnetic field, the heart beat of the Earth, will continue to weaken until even a weak CME causes irreparable harm.

It’s our choice, on so many levels, if we let that happen.

Let me start with this.   I am an expert in theory and practice of protecting electrical and electronics from EMF destruction.   I have designed and built protective systems for the most crucial of US government command/control/communication systems.   Systems so critical that in tying in the new systems, it required months of planning for a temporary shutdown, and literally an approval from the US Congress.

Our Planet Is At Grave Risk of Hemisphere Wide Blackout and 50 Nuclear Plants Melting Down

This does pose an interesting theory.   The sun may be “judge” in which hemisphere becomes the ruler/survivor after a Carrington type Event.    One hemisphere, plus a bit more since the earth is spinning, and the CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) takes place over time, will be blacked out, and society will implode upon itself leaving few living, as 98% of the sheeple realize that they can’t eat the rumors of how the Kardashians keep their skin so glowing.

Speaking of glowing, do you know what happens when power grids go down?    Nuclear plants ABSOLUTELY REQUIRE the presence of an outside power grid in order to keep operating.   When the grid fails, they go into an emergency shutdown mode.    Now imagine what would happen if its not just the grid down, but all the electronics are fried also, all the computers are broke?   Do you think the emergency shutdown systems of the nuclear plants will actually function correctly?

Would you think that the nuke plant workers and supervisors, who usually live quite close to the plant, will stay on duty, trying to control the risk, or will they leave to gather their family and try to escape the area.    Most will just leave.   The 2nd and 3rd shift will not report for duty, and in fact there will be no way to contact them.

There are 440 operating nuclear plants in the world, so perhaps 250 of them will be affected by the upcoming Carrington Event.    I say upcoming, because it is just a matter of time.  Watch the video below, there are 2 big things at play:
1) The earths magnetic field is a shield that protects us from Sun CME, and it is weakening
2) The sun is in a multi century type of “funk” of low sunspots, which actually put us at far greater risk of a large CME.

So WHEN the next Carrington event occurs, one half of the earth, will be wiped out, and the other half will be “victors”.   Except for this most inconvenient truth…..the nuclear plants melting down will release so much radiation and heavy metals and ionized particles, that the earth and almost all life forms will be toast.  Even if only 20% of the 250 nuke plant affected do actually melt down, that will be an extinction level event.

We know a Carrington type event will occur eventually, and we know that if 50 nuke plants melt down  uncontrollably that all life will be extinguished.   So mankind with its 3 pound insane monkey brain decides to extend the life of clunker nuclear plants, and engage on a nuclear renaissance.

Mankind could harden the electrical grids, for billions of dollars.    This won’t for the most part protect our “precious” electronics, but an operable grid will certainly aid recovery, under a different ruling country of course.
