It was just over a year ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger posted the above words. Though climate change is an important subject which is bearing down on the entire human race, an issue that in the future will kill an unlimited amount of human beings, the back side of the subject is already killing millions of people every year.
Schwarzenegger said, “Do you believe it is acceptable that 7 million people die every year from pollution? That’s more than murders, suicides, and car accidents combined. Every day, 19,000 people die from pollution from fossil fuels. Do you accept those deaths? Do you accept that children all over the world have to grow up breathing with inhalers?
We have created a toxic hell on earth. It’s a special kind of hell that gets chemically and radioactively more toxic each year with the damage and danger expanding to hurt, debilitate, torture, and even kill people in uncountable numbers. Doctors participate with their use of toxic pharmaceuticals, use of radiation and depriving their patients of the information about what to do about toxic expose. Companies like Monsanto lead the charge with their agricultural chemicals, pesticides with their Roundup product probably doing the most damage to the human race.
In January, a California Superior Court Judge struck down Monsanto’s attempt to overturn California’s 2015 ruling to require Prop 65 warnings on glyphosate. The Prop 65 cancer warning is based on the 2015 findings of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which determined glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and claiming it “left the soil clean.”
Human destiny is on a collision course with pesticides. Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are showing up in everyone’s blood affecting people’s and children’s brains. Children whose mothers were exposed to certain types of pesticides while pregnant were more likely to have attention problems as they grew up.
Though coal emissions are declining they are dramatically higher than they were at the turn of the century. Coal is not the only problem in terms of air pollution. Readings inside the containment vessel of reactor no. 2 at Fukushima have finally been measured and are clocking in at 530 Sieverts per hour, a dosage that would be fatal dozens and dozens of times over if a human were to be exposed to it for a second. We are polluting the world, and especially lately the Pacific Ocean, with nuclear radiation as well as thousands of tons of heavy metals that come out of coal stacks each year.
The WHO has already classified outdoor air pollution as a leading cause of cancer in humans. “A new official report says that six in 10 Americans — about 175 million people — are living in places where air pollution often reaches dangerous levels. It is estimated that 180,000 people suffering from Air Pollution shall be admitted to hospitals, this is an increase of 62% in the last 20 years. Around 6,000,000 visits to the doctors in 2008 are associated to the exposure of Air Pollution.
The California Air Resources Board meanwhile has tripled its estimates of premature deaths in California from particle pollution to 18,000 a year, the report said. Freeways remain high-risk areas for everyone, the study said, increasing the risk of heart attack, allergies, premature births and infant deaths.
Air pollution levels in Chinese cities cause 350,000 to 400,000 premature deaths each year. It is estimated that the United States presently accounts for 3 to 5 percent of total global mercury air emissions, whereas Asian countries are estimated to contribute about one-half of the human-made air emissions.
“When I was last in Beijing, pollution was at the hazardous level: Every hour of exposure reduced my life expectancy by 20 minutes,” Richard Muller, scientific director of Berkeley Earth and a co-author of the paper, said in an e-mail. “It’s as if every man, woman and child smoked 1.5 cigarettes each hour.”
The Romans were aware that lead could cause serious health problems, even madness and death. However, they were so fond of its diverse uses that they minimized the hazards it posed. We do the same with coal as well as nuclear energy but the list does not stop there. We are so fond of our current life-styles, with our cars and busses and planes that we really do not care that we are hurting and killing each other with unlimited and unsustainable carbon based human activity.
The Problem with Coal is Not Carbon Dioxide
Human destiny is on a collision course with mercury and other heavy metals (which includes radionuclides) not carbon dioxide, which does not cause climate change but responds to it. Tomorrow we will all wake up to a world with about twenty tons more mercury in the environment, hundreds of pounds of mercury will be put into people’s mouths by dentists, and tens of thousands of little children will receive vaccinations laced with mercury in the form of ethyl-mercury, super-charged with aluminum. Human destiny is on a collision course with many things but carbon dioxide is not one of them.
The FDA said many years ago that 2 to 3 thousand tons of metallic mercury was being released into the air from manmade sources. Chemical radioactivity is an appropriate phrase to describe what the situation is with mercury and other chemicals that are causing disease rates to soar. And what has already arrived gets worse with the hundreds of millions of tons of toxic chemicals that get produced and added to the human biosphere each year.
Six studies that found strong relationships between biomarkers for mercury toxicity in children with autism including a direct correlation between the levels of mercury toxicity and the severity of autism symptoms. Those findings are supported by recent research that links industrial exposures of lead, mercury and arsenic to the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
On average, for each 1,000 pounds of environmentally released mercury, there is a 43 percent increase in the rate of special education services and a 61 percent increase in the rate of autism.” Dr. John Palmers found that those districts with the highest levels of mercury in the environment also had the highest rates of special education students with autism diagnosis. This would explain why California has the highest autism rates. California is known to have the highest environmental burden of mercury of any state in the country. Part of the reason for that probably is the mercury blowing in on the high winds from China where they have been putting up new coal burning mercury polluting electrical plants at a fantastic pace. China spews 600 tons of mercury into the air each year, accounting for a great part of the world’s non-natural emissions.
Everyone now has to live and breathe in the context of a dangerous chemical cloud with radioactive like fallout that penetrates our human skin. Having failed to destroy ourselves with radioactive clouds from atomic bombs we have managed to muddle through and threaten ourselves through a combination of means that will continue to get worse until we are stopped in our tracks—like the Chinese are beginning to be—because in some places over there it is becoming almost impossible to even breathe.
The prolonged effects of low grade concentrations of toxic substances depend on individual susceptibility,” says Professor I.M. Trakhtenberg from the former Soviet Union.
Toxic Exposure from Water and Vaccines
In 1995, neurotoxicologist and former Director of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix published research showing that fluoride built up in the brains of animals when exposed to moderate levels. Rats drinking only 1 part per million fluoride (NaF) (million parts per trillion) in water had histologic lesions in their brain similar to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The CDC and FDA should also be strung up for allowing fluoride to be put in drinking water. These medical wings of the federal government are criminals guilty of massive poisoning and deaths.
Thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative, is still in 48 million U.S. flu vaccines each year, tetanus toxoid, meningococcal vaccines and, in massive doses, in the pediatric vaccines given to 100 million children across the developing world. A Centers for Disease Control (CDC) review published last month found that the ethylmercury in thimerosal is as profoundly neurotoxic as the heavily regulated methylmercury in fish.
The concentration of thimerosal (fifty percent mercury by weight) in vaccines that contain this agent as a preservative is approximately 125,000 nanomolar. In our studies pure thimerosal shows toxicity to neurons in culture at 10 to 20 nanomolar, a 12,500 to 6,250 dilution factor. Calculations, using a conservative approach, demonstrate that vaccinations of infants exposed them to concentrations of thimerosal that could biologically injure them, especially if they were exceptionally susceptible to mercury toxicity due to genetic predisposition, other concurrent toxic exposures (e.g. to lead, elemental mercury, cadmium, etc.) further, our research has shown that thimerosal, which releases the toxic agent ethylmercury, inhibits the same brain enzymes as does Hg2+. Therefore, multiple exposures from dental amalgams, food, and vaccines are all capable of adding to the toxic load of these infants. In Summary: Pure thimerosal was toxic at the low nanomolar level – an extremely low concentration, about 10,000 times less than the thimerosal concentration found in most vaccines.
Researchers found the presence of inorganic, foreign bodies in all human-use vaccines. In fact, the scientists claim that the foreign bodies they found contaminating the vaccines were not declared in the package insert from the manufacturer. Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil, the flu vaccine, as well as in the meningitis vaccine. Other vaccines were found to be contaminated with stainless steel, iron, chromium, and the heavy metal nickel. GlaxoSmithKline’s Fluarix vaccine for children was found to contain 11 different metals.
Arnold should know, I hope, that it does not begin and end with air pollution. We have deep within our civilization a mentality of poison and often for no good reason at all. The flu vaccine for instance, and all the mercury exposure that comes with it, is not effective at all. They do it for nothing.
Because there is little we can do about air pollution, except to move to more pristine environments, that are shrinking each year, we have to take learn to survive in a contaminated world. Denial of the threat will translate into chronic disease and early death. Bottom line, it really matters where you live!
It is an almost impossible job to get our act together and do something about the massive poisoning of humans. A good place to start though, if we were serious, would be with the Center of Disease Control in Atlanta. CDC scientists should be dragged from their offices and charged with intentional murder, chemical rape and deliberate torturing of young and old alike with their religion of lies about mercury, vaccines and a host of other toxic agents. A good second stop would be the FDA and then on to the doors of Monsanto.
However, this is just a fool’s dream. No one expects anything to happen even close to this so expect cancer rates to continue to skyrocket because no one in the established order of things gives a damn. These governmental organizations along with the EPA have the responsibility to protect the public but what they really do is allow the massive poisoning of the human race.
We are facing a historic financial collapse anyway and that should sweep away much of the mainstream, which is ill prepared for anything other than for things to continue as they are. The financial collapse is on an express train coming at us and that should hit us hard before the weather turns much colder as we slip into a new mini ice age. However, this winter is already heralding the coming changes with record cold and incredibly heavy snow fall that is taking the world by surprise.
I mention these factors because things are going to be taken out of our hands. The universe is not as stupid as we are and will deliver consequences as well as dramatic changes that we lack the will to implement. We did not need the politically motivated theory of global warming to instigate changes. That lie did not work anyway though a lot of people made a lot of money with that scam.
The point Schwarzenegger was making is that there is already a big reason to reduce coal burning—it is dirty fuel, which they do not even try to clean up with smoke stack scrubbers and other technology that can reduce enormous mercury emissions. They even have the technology to turn CO2 emissions into bicarbonate.
