Program includes updates on Fukushima, including spiking cancer rates in Japan, as well as dire health impacts upon military personnel who were aboard a US Navy ship that was kept in the vicinity of Fukushima in the immediate aftermath of the disaster; Fukushima fallout surging to higher-than-normal levels in Hawaii; massive marine life die-offs on the west coast of the US; an alarming story regarding plans by the US Department of Homeland Security to conduct biological research on the public–specifically a bizarre announcement that the department intends to release “chemical and biological simulant materials” at the Chilicco Indian School campus near Newkirk, Oklahoma; Trump’s practice of appointing industry lobbyists to regulatory posts; and finally the administration’s attack on net neutrality.
More on the biological test planned for Oklahoma can be found in an article here. An excerpt:
The Department of Homeland Security announced the small town near the Kansas border will host a biological weapons simulation at the now-abandoned Chilocco Indian School.
In 2018, the department wants to release “non-hazardous, non-toxic” chemicals and biological materials on buildings in the area.
They want to see what might happen if a terrorist were to release similar chemicals as a biological weapon, and if buildings would offer residents any kind of protection.
Residents say the announcement worries them.
“I just got sick to my stomach,” said Newkirk resident Dennis Jordan. “I think if they want to test that stuff, let them go to Los Alamos, you know? I think it’s stupid.”
For the particle test, the government plans to release titanium dioxide, which it describes as a “white odorless powder that is chemically insoluble in water, nonreactive, nonflammable and nonhazardous.”
For the biological test, the government plans to release genetic, barcoded spores of an insecticide sold under the trade name of Dipel. Dipel is not considered hazardous by the Environmental Protection Agency when handled appropriately, according to an assessment.
News of the planned test–scheduled to take place in the winter of 2018–has also been reported by a Fox News affiliate here. Needless to say, local residents are alarmed, and a petition has been started on the matter at Change.org.
Meanwhile, the geoengineering continues in the skies over our heads.
