Russian authorities deny nuclear weapons explosion poses radiation risk but order residents to stay indoors and take iodine tablets.

Russian authorities are claiming it was a rocket explosion but residents in the area near the village of Nyonoksa in Arkhangelsk region say it is a nuclear weapons test facility – and today they had an explosion so large, nearby towns have been instructed to stay indoors and take iodine tablets. Shipping in a nearby bay was immediately closed off and the town of Severodvinsk (population 185,000) reported a spike in radiation levels. The Russian defense ministry initially claimed radiation levels in the area were normal before ultimately admitting to the explosion after a video of the event leaked on the Internet. Greenpeace is reporting radiation levels that are 20-times normal in areas as far as 20 miles from the accident site. The environmental group said

Thawing ice cap could release Cold War-era toxic waste dump buried under Greenland’s ice sheet

Researchers from York University in Canada and the University of Zurich released findings yesterday which reveal a terrifying consequence of global warming. According to the researchers, the thawing ice sheet in Greenland will expose several hundred thousand gallons of military waste including chemical, biological, and radioactive waste left over from Project Iceworm. The waste is stored in an abandoned Cold War-era U.S. military camp, Camp Century.  Camp Century was built underground in northwest Greenland in 1959 as part of Project Iceworm and tasked to research the feasibility of nuclear missile launch sites in the Arctic (under the guise of polar research, of course).  Denmark, which controlled Greenland at the time, granted the US permission to establish military bases there.  At the site, camp personnel stored an unknown amount of radioactive

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reveals story about UFO he and friends saw in 2005

Tell someone that UFO’s and nuclear power plants go hand-in-hand and you’re likely to get at a minimum, an incredulous rolling of the eyes. Many people have a hard time believing in something, or at least opening their mind to the possibility, unless they’ve seen it with their own eyes – or if someone they respect says it’s so. This week Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed a UFO sighting he and friends experienced in 2005 right before he entered the NFL.  The mysterious sighting left them stunned and confused and cultivated a lifelong curiosity about weird things in the sky. Aaron Rodgers UFO sighting According to Rodgers, he was on the East Coast in rural New Jersey in February 2005 for a pre-draft interview (ESPN's Cold Pizza

That time a surge in fogged pictures let Kodak discover radiation from secret nuclear testing was raining all over the world (1950’s)

The problems began in 1946 when Eastman Kodak noticed an uptick in complaints from customers regarding bad film. Customers were regularly calling Kodak and complaining about film they had bought coming out splotchy and fogged. Kodak was a powerhouse in the industry at the time and could not have their good name soiled. They set their top scientists on a mission to find out why. Equipment was tested and chemicals were analyzed but Kodak could find no explanation for the surge of fogged film that was ruining customers’ pictures. As a last resort, Kodak tested the film’s cardboard packaging – and they found large amounts of radioactive iodine-131. Kodak, who had some of the best scientists of the era on staff, traced the problem to fallout from American

New York nuclear power plant discovered leaking radioactive material into groundwater systems

Officials announced this week that the Indian Point Energy Center nuclear power plant is leaking radioactive tritium into groundwater wells near the facility. Of course, authorities are telling the public there is nothing to worry about. However, be forewarned – there's no such thing as a "harmless" radioactive material leak. The Indian Point Energy Center is a three-unit reactor power plant located in Buchanan, New York, on the east bank of the Hudson River (twenty-five miles north of New York City). Officials detected the leaks in three different groundwater monitoring wells surrounding the nuclear plant. The owner of the plant, Entergy, says that the leaks are “not in accordance with our standards” but claims the leaks pose “no health or safety consequence to the public.” Dismissing a potential public

Caught on video – military transport carrying nuclear weapon gets rear-ended by armored vehicle

The videographer that shot frames from the video below, explained that a military convoy, complete with several military helicopters in the air and federal marshals leading the way, passed through his town (Nevada area). According to the videographer, the convoy was delivering nuclear weapons or nuclear material (possibly a common occurrence in his area). As the videographer was shooting the film, he says a federal agent pulled over and attempted to stop him from filming the procession. During the distracting melee, one of the trailing escort vehicles rammed into the back of the truck the convoy was protecting!  Not sure (and afraid to ask) what happened to the cargo inside. Here is the convoy approaching the man’s position (presumably the federal official has already attempted to stop

Pacific Coast fishermen provide proof (photos) that Fukushima is contaminating U.S. fish with radioactive material

  Tumors on Pacific Coast fish cause concern for local fishermen When Hirasaka Hiroshi caught this terrifying large fish in the waters off northern Japan (see photo above), the catch added substance to Japanese fishermen’s concerns over the effects of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident on local fish populations. Now, just days after we learned that radiation from the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant is much worse than expected (exposure at the plant can kill a person in less than an hour), a geoengineering researcher reports that fishermen from the United States Pacific Coast are growing increasingly alarmed as they catch more and more fish filled with bloody, cancerous tumors. The situation is concerning because unlike people, tumors are rarely found on fish. In fact, up until the past

Radiation at Japan’s failed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant much worse than expected – can kill a person in under 1 hour

It has been revealed that readings at Japan’s failed Fukushima nuclear power plant taken in September 4-25 2015 checks are far higher than expected. Deadly radiation levels of up to 9.4 Sieverts per hour have been recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – enough to kill a person in less than one hour. According to JIJI Press (citing Tokyo Electric Power Co – TEPCO) the readings were taken at the point where a pipe leads to the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant using a remote robotic measuring device. The 9.4 Sievert measurement is 23.5 times higher than the radiation level recorded in 2011 shortly after the plant exploded. The plant exploded after a magnitude 9 earthquake triggered

Mysterious explosion reported at Iran’s secret nuclear facilities – 240 men trapped underground

WND and The Australian are reporting that a mysterious explosion has hit Iran’s not-so-secret nuclear facilities.  Satellite imagery seen by The Times confirmed that a blast that rocked the city of Isfahan on Monday struck the uranium enrichment facility there, despite denials by Tehran. The reports indicate that the explosion occurred within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility, a site that is located deep under a mountain, and has destroyed much of the facility and trapped about 240 personnel deep underground.  The previously secret nuclear site has become a center for Iran’s nuclear activity because of the 2,700 centrifuges enriching uranium to the 20-percent level. The regime’s uranium enrichment process takes place at two known sites: the Natanz facility with more than 10,000 centrifuges and Fordow with
