I started this blog in 2009 to express my concerns about the condition of humanity at that point in time. I have chronicled my reactions and research on the pressing issues: financial crisis; endless war; declining health; and environmental catastrophes.
I have described my fears about growing fascism and dispossession and the dangers these pose for our collective survival given the scope of the problems we face, having now destroyed our eco-system.
I wrote this blog to express these concerns and I found so many people across the world who share them also and who are motivated by the same values, which include: Love, Learning (striving to understand this world we live in) and Material/Spiritual Responsibility Towards the Collective Ecosystem (especially the people within it).
I know there are so many of us out there who hear the call.
Fukushima was the full alarm for many of us.
Many of us are now convinced that humanity faces imminent extinction if it does not act quickly to address and manage nuclear industries and waste, given their proven vulnerability to CATASTROPHIC accidents capable of raising 'background' radiation (including radiocesium, strontium, and plutonium) and lead in the environment to unprecedented levels for humanity.
Radiation poses very substantial risks that multiply across generations and echo through the human genome. Eating and drinking radioisotopes are both extraordinarily bad for your health and for the genome of humanity itself. Radiation produces micro-deletions in your DNA and these micro-deletions are being linked now to diseases such as autism, congenital heart diseases, and Parkinsons.
I thought I was educated until I spent the last two years researching this disaster and learning about genotoxins.
What I've learned is amazing and I hope to share it in the form of my book, which shall be published presently. My book chronicles the disaster, charts the conditions of its possibility, and describes what is known about probable health impacts. It is an academic version of the comments I've made in this blog and the research I've documented in my posts.
I think codifying individuals' experiences and ideas is very important because those thoughts document reality in a far more nuanced way than official histories ever will.
I've asked some people if I could re-post their comments. And I would like to invite my readers to share thoughts about what this disaster has meant to them personally and for the human race here (in the comment section and I will re-post).
For me personally: I think I've reached the acceptance stage where I see that our leaders and institutions are incapable of responding to imminent risks threatening humanity.
The inability to successfully mitigate the Fukushima disaster has revealed, more than all else, that we have engineered problems so big that we are incapable of addressing them.
And most of us are content to be led off the cliff because denial is so seductive when the problems are so scary and big.
The aware have probably always known humanity was 'fallen,' too likely to engage in destruction and violence.
How far will we fall this time now that global eco-system collapse is upon us?
