Leuren Moret: Fukushima radiation has made Hawaii and Pacific islands unsafe for humans

BERKELEY, CA – In response to a question from Canada, independent scientist and radiation expert Leuren Moret, MA, PhD ABT has stated that Fukushima Radiation has made Hawaii and the Pacific islands unsafe for human habitation and swimming in the adjacent Pacific Ocean.

Ms. Moret stated, “Anyone with a desire to stay healthy should never go to Hawaii or any Pacific islands in our lifetime. One of the main Pacific Ocean currents is carrying the radiation from Fukushima directly east across the Pacific Ocean – and Hawaii is one of the places it goes carrying all that death and sickness. Also, the Cesium-137 levels have been increasing over time on the tsunami debris field spread from China to the west coast of N. America. Please see the map [above] on Cesium 137 levels being carried across the Pacific Ocean.

Leuren Moret continued, “Here is a very good map of the Pacific Ocean currents that shows the Kiroshio Current that originates near Taiwan and flows north to Japan and then splits east out into the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii and north of Hawaii. This is the largest current in the world, 75 km wide and 3500′ deep. It travels at 3-9 km/hr, and would fill up Lake Superior if it was empty in 1 1/2 days. This current is feeding radiation to the tsunami debris field, daily increasing the levels of Cesium-137 (an indicator isotope since there are nearly 2000 different isotopes coming out of Fukushima). Cesium is a particularly dangerous isotope because it concentrates in the heart and it takes very little to cause heart trouble and a very rapid death.”

“I have discussed weekly obituaries for young students in the Daily Cal during an interview I did with Alfred Lambremont Webre last Fall 2013, [Watch interview below]” Ms. Moret stated. “There are frequent obituaries on students who died from mysterious ailments and they were in their late teens or early 20′s. One of them was a beautiful young athlete who surfed all summer in 2012 and she dropped dead from a heart attack (Cesium) a few months after she came back from Hawaii.

Ms. Moret stated, “I hope this helps. Do not go to any Pacific Islands in the future.”

So, which way is climate change heading??
This story from Richard Giles….
While we in Australia are about to experience a hot season over the holidays in Australia, the Nth Hemisphere is going thru the most intense cold & freezing conditions with snow that in some places has not occurred for more than 100 Years. These below are some of the quotes that were made in the past based on ‘global warming’  theory which are now proving to be based on very poor science and way out on the actual real weather trends.   Little or none of this is ever reported in the AUSTRALIAN media.  Do you see why we have such a strong media emphasis on warming when in fact the Nthn Hemisphere is not like that half the year. CHECK out the coldest ever JUST for 2010, below.
Two recent news stories about the USA and the Middle East -   The USA is going to have one of the most intensely cold winters on record right now. I could put up at least 20 news stories on how freezing it is in Europe, the USA and the Middle east this month, but not enough room. So far this year 160 low temperature and snow records were broken in the USA in 2 weeks alone. These are from NASA figures.
PS:    While we are having heat records set in some areas its getting colder winters year by year in the North. It looks as if, at this point, the predictions by Solar Scientists made over the past 5 to 10 years that we are moving into a prolonged cold cycle are about the manifest – despite the IPCC and CSIRO proposals that the temp is rising out of all proportion – and saying we are in for “G. Warming”.
PPS:     (1)   Jerusalem Breaks 134 year-old Snowfall Record, DECEMBER 18, 2013
“The storm that began this past weekend and lasted four days broke the Jerusalem snowfall record since 1879,” says this news website. “The snow piled up to a height of 40 to 60 centimeters (16 to 23? inches), and an especially great quantity of snow fell in the mountains of northern Israel, reaching a height of 70 centimeters (28 inches).”    These statistics demonstrate just how unique this storm was in terms of its force and its extremely low temperatures.
The blizzard cut Jerusalem off and almost completely paralyzed life in the city as of Thursday, December 12, 2013.   The electric power grid in the city collapsed because of trees that had fallen on power lines, and many people had no electricity all weekend and suffered from the freezing temperatures.”
(2)     Four Days of Heavy Snowfall leaves Amman Paralyzed – Video
by ROBERT on DECEMBER 17, 2013 
Thousands of homes in Jordan’s capital Amman without power, and hundreds of vehicles stranded, covered by snow.
A”major” winter storm, it is one of the worst blizzards to hit the country in recent history, leaving half a metre of snow in some areas.
Heavy snow has fallen in parts of Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Syria over the last few days.
One of the worst snow storms in decades.  King Abdullah II of Jordan was caught on camera coming to the rescue of a car owner trapped in the streets of Amman after heavy snow hit the region.   The unexpected snow storm, which has been described as the worst in decades, has caused chaos in some parts of the Middle East.
HYSTERY QUOTES:
Science Daily 1999 - “Based on this research, it’s quite likely that the warmer winters over the continents are indeed a result of the increasing amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere,” Dr. Shindell said. “This research offers both a plausible physical mechanism for how this takes place, and reproduces the observed trends both qualitatively and even quantitatively.”
Scientist Dr David Viner, of the Climatic Research Unit in East Anglia. In March 2000 he famously told The Independent that snowfalls were now “just a thing of the past”. Within a few years, he said, winter snowfall would become “a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”
The UK Met Office (September 2008) was asserting that: “The trend of mild winters continues”. The coming winter was to be milder than average. It was also likely that the coming winter would also be drier.”
COLD WEATHER  QUOTES  – 2010
 
   Ireland – “December ’10 the coldest month ever on record. ”
 -  “Britain’s winter is already the 2nd coldest since 1659 and close to being the chilliest in nearly 1,000 years.
 -  ” First time since 1945 that max daytime temperature has remained below zero for nearly a month.
-    “On the early morning of 27 Dec 2010 in the Italian Dolomites the temperature fell to – 48,3°C. A record.
-    “The UK could be heading for its coldest December since 1890, say forecasters.
-    ” Mongolia is battling its most severe winter in three decades.
-   “The mercury plummeted to -5.9C at Glenlivet in 1996, but that record was smashed last night when temperatures dropped to -17C at Worcester and -18C at Altnaharra in northern Scotland.” MINUS 18C!
-   ”Coldest Swedish Dec in 110 years – Dec 2010 “
-    UK midlands: coldest November night in 134 yrs – 29 Nov 10 – “The coldest November night in Derby for 134 years, dating back to 1876, when records began.
-    Sweden braces for record freeze – 30 Nov 10 – Stockholm forecast to experience its coldest seasonal temperatures in more than 100 years this week.
-    Record cold in Denmark – Worst in 131 years – 1 Dec 10
-    Britain Colder Than Antarctica – Deepest Snowfall in 100 Years
-    UK food shelves empty and petrol running out as icy roads make deliveries impossible. Some areas have seen the heaviest snow in more than 50 years. 3 Dec 10
-   Coldest in central England since 1659 – 8 Dec 10 – The last week of November and the first week of December have been the coldest since central England Temperature (CET) records began in 1659, says meteorologist Joe Bastardi.
-   Coldest Swedish Dec in 110 years – 29 Dec 10 – Covers several parts of Sweden, including the southern region Götaland and eastern Svealand.
-    Record low temp in Italian Dolomites – Dec 10 On the early morning of 27 Dec 2010 in the Italian Dolomites (near San Martino di Castrozza, a small village between the cities of Trento and Belluno) the temperature fell to – 48.3°C. A Record.  - Dr. Mirco Poletto
-   The weather station in Sheffield recorded 15in of lying snow on Wednesday - the deepest since snowfall statistics began in 1954. Anecdotal reports suggest this was the heaviest snowfall in the area for 100 years.
Extreme Cold To Grip Europe – Pattern Not Seen in 70 Years - 22 Nov 10.  “Later this week a blast of Arctic air is set to sweep across northern and central Europe, as a huge high pressure zone off in the Atlantic combined with low pressure system Gundula to east over the Baltic pump frigid air over the continent. One meteorologist says such a weather pattern was last seen 70 years ago!”
Heavy snow traps 1,000 herdsmen in Inner Mongolia - 27 Nov 10 – The heaviest snowstorm in 30 years hit Xing’an prefecture, 1,500 km northeast of Inner Mongolia’s capital Hohhot, last week. Snow piled up to 30 cm in most parts of the region and a metre in some areas, the China Daily reported.
THE OTHER QUOTES…  ”I think it is even conceivable that the Arctic ice spreads significantly in the years to come,” said Globig.  The impact of solar activity on climate has been criminally underestimated for a long time. The last two weeks have been the coldest in England since the second-to-last solar minimum, many hundreds of years ago.  “What actually will happen depends on the next five to ten years,” believes Globig.   But one thing now appears to be very likely for the weather expert, “We will have to abandon some climate forecasts. “

Antarctica sets new Cold Weather Record of -93.2 C Guinness Book of World Records won’t recognize new Frigid Low
The Associated Press Posted: Dec 9, 2013
Newly analyzed data from East Antarctica say the remote region has set a record for soul-crushing cold.
The record is minus 135.8 Fahrenheit (minus 93.2 Celsius).   A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for coldest temperature recorded. It happened in August 2010 when it hit -135.8 F (-93.2 C). Then on July 31 of this year, it came close again: -135.3 F (-92.9 C).   The old record had been -128.6 F (-89.2 C).    SEE:    http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/antarctica-sets-new-cold-weather-record-of-93-2-c-1.2457494
German Scientists Predict Global Temperatures Will Decline Throughout This Century
Written by Jonathan DuHamel, Tucson Citizen
9 Dec 2013
http://principia-scientific.org/index.php?German scientists contend that two natural cycles will combine to lower global temperatures throughout the 21st Century.
The scientists show that there is an approximate 200 year solar cycle, supported by historical temperature data and proxy data from stalagmites in caves. “The solar activity agrees well with the terrestrial climate. It clearly shows in particular all historic temperature minima.”There is also an approximate 65-year cycle of the Atlantic/Pacific oscillation (AMO/PDO) which is well-established by multiple lines of observations.The 200 year solar cycle has just passed its maximum and will decline during the 21st Century. It is at least in part responsible for the warming of the last decades of the 20th Century. The AMO/PDO cycle is also beginning its cool phase and will reach a minimum in 2035.The scientists say that “Non-periodic processes like a warming through the monotonic increase of CO2 in the atmosphere could cause at most 0.1°C to 0.2°C warming for a doubling of the CO2 content, as it is expected for 2100.” This positive forcing will be overwhelmed by the stronger negative forcing of natural cycles. They conclude that “the global temperature will drop until 2100 to a value corresponding to the “little ice age” of 1870.” Read more here. Attached is a graph of historical temperatures and temperature predictions.. . .

Summary
The analysis of solar activity proves the existence and the strength of the 200+ year periodicity which we found from historical temperature measurements, as well as from the Spannagel stalagmite data. This 200+ year cycle is apparently the one known as “de Vries cycle”.

This solar “de Vries cycle” together with the AMO/PDO determine practically completely the global climate of the past (Fig. 1) and the coming time. A significant influence of CO2 on the climate thus has to be excluded. This latter is not surprising in view of the small amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and its weak infrared absorption cross section (also in view of the various proves of NEGATIVE water feedback).

The present “stagnation” of global temperature (Fig. 5) is essentially due to the AMO/PDO: the solar de Vries cycle is presently at its maximum. Around this maximum it changes negligibly. The AMO/PDO is presently beyond its maximum, corresponding to the small decrease of global temperature. Its next minimum will be 2035. The temperature can expected to be then similar to the last AMO/PDO minimum of 1940. Due to the de Vries cycle, the global temperature will drop until 2100 to a value corresponding to the “little ice age” of 1870.

It accounts for the long temperature rise since 1870. One may note, that the stronger temperature increase from the 1970s to the 1990s, which is “officially” argued to prove warming by CO2, is essentially due to the AMO/PDO cycle.

Northern Europe under the Worst Storm since 1953 – Hurricane Xaver
Posted by Adonai on December 05, 2013
http://thewatchers.adorraeli.com/2013/12/05/northern-europe-under-the-worst-storm-since-1953-hurricane-xaver/Powerful Atlantic storm named Xaver, the worst since 1953, has tracked east to the north of Scotland overnight, bringing very strong winds across northern parts of the UK. Severe storm and flooding warnings are in effect for the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium and Germany. Western and southern Norway are also bracing for the pending storm.
Automatic weather stations in mountainous region of Scotland recorded wind speeds of near 300 km/h this morning. In urban areas of Scotland measured wind speeds reached 228 km/h, which is equivalent to category 4 hurricane (Saffir-Simpson scale).3) Deep freeze grips almost the entire United States

http://iceagenow.info/2013/12/deep-freeze-grips-entire-united-states/More than 100,000 people lose power as sleet weighed down power lines and snapped tree branches.
With winter storm warnings were issued for parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. At least five governors declared states of emergency. “A lot of these places, especially in the more rural areas, are going to stay below freezing for some time,” said Michael Palmer, a lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. “They could be without power for a long while.”
Temperatures dropped to -20C in Wyoming, emptying stores in Texas of firewood. Meanwhile, grocery stores in Arkansas ran low on bread, milk and bottled water.

Study: Greenland Ice Sheet was Smaller 3000 – 5000 Years Ago than Today
Posted on November 22, 2013 by Anthony Watts
From the University of Buffalo
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/11/22/study-greenland-ice-sheet-was-smaller-3000-5000-years-ago-than-today/Clues in the Arctic fossil record suggest that 3-5,000 years ago, the ice sheet was the smallest it has been in the past 10,000 yearsSummary:
* Ice sheets are like bulldozers. As they grow, they push rocks, boulders, clams, fossils and other debris into piles called moraines.
* By dating ancient clams in moraines, scientists have come up with a new technique for determining when glaciers were smaller than they are today.
* The technique suggests that the Greenland Ice Sheet was at its smallest point in recent history 3-5,000 years ago – information that could improve our understanding of how ice responds to climate change.BUFFALO, N.Y. – Think Greenland’s ice sheet is small today?It was smaller – as small as it has ever been in recent history – from 3-5,000 years ago, according to scientists who studied the ice sheet’s history using a new technique they developed for interpreting the Arctic fossil record.
“What’s really interesting about this is that on land, the atmosphere was warmest between 9,000 and 5,000 years ago, maybe as late as 4,000 years ago. The oceans, on the other hand, were warmest between 5-3,000 years ago,” said Jason Briner, PhD, University at Buffalo associate professor of geology, who led the study.”What it tells us is that the ice sheets might really respond to ocean temperatures,” he said. “It’s a clue to what might happen in the future as the Earth continues to warm.” The findings appeared online on Nov. 22 in the journal Geology. Briner’s team included Darrell Kaufman, an organic geochemist from Northern Arizona University; Ole Bennike, a clam taxonomist from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland; and Matthew Kosnik, a statistician from Australia’s Macquarie University.The study is important not only for illuminating the history of Greenland’s ice sheet, but for providing geologists with an important new tool: A method of using Arctic fossils to deduce when glaciers were smaller than they are today.Scientists have many techniques for figuring out when ice sheets were larger, but few for the opposite scenario.
“Traditional approaches have a difficult time identifying when ice sheets were smaller,” Briner said. “The outcome of our work is that we now have a tool that allows us to see how the ice sheet responded to past times that were as warm or warmer than present – times analogous to today and the near future.”The technique the scientists developed involves dating fossils in piles of debris found at the edge of glaciers.
To elaborate: Growing ice sheets are like bulldozers, pushing rocks, boulders and other detritus into heaps of rubble called moraines.
Because glaciers only do this plowing when they’re getting bigger, logic dictates that rocks or fossils found in a moraine must have been scooped up at a time when the associated glacier was older and smaller.

So if a moraine contains fossils from 3,000 years ago, that means the glacier was growing – and smaller than it is today – 3,000 years ago.
This is exactly what the scientists saw in Greenland: They looked at 250 ancient clams from moraines in three western regions, and discovered that most of the fossils were between 3-5,000 years old.

The finding suggests that this was the period when the ice sheet’s western extent was at its smallest in recent history, Briner said.
“Because we see the most shells dating to the 5-3000 year period, we think that this is when the most land was ice-free, when large layers of mud and fossils were allowed to accumulate before the glacier came and bulldozed them up,” he said.

Because radiocarbon dating is expensive, Briner and his colleagues found another way to trace the age of their fossils.
Their solution was to look at the structure of amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – in the fossils of ancient clams. Amino acids come in two orientations that are mirror images of each other, known as D and L, and living organisms generally keep their amino acids in an L configuration.

When organisms die, however, the amino acids begin to flip. In dead clams, for example, D forms of aspartic acid start turning to L’s.
Because this shift takes place slowly over time, the ratio of D’s to L’s in a fossil is a giveaway of its age. Knowing this, Briner’s research team matched D and L ratios in 20 Arctic clamshells to their radiocarbon-dated ages to generate a scale showing which ratios corresponded with which ages.

The researchers then looked at the D and L ratios of aspartic acid in the 250 Greenland clamshells to come up with the fossils’ ages.
Amino acid dating is not new, but applying it to the study of glaciers could help scientists better understand the history of ice – and climate change – on Earth.

The study was funded by the National Geographic Society and U.S. National Science Foundation.
