Radioactive fallout killing foliage.

This must-see video shows the effects that Fukushima nuclear fallout is having on foliage at the Halifax, Nova Scotia public gardens. Leaves are discolored, frayed, curled, with holes in them and spots on them. This is in far eastern Canada, and almost as far as you can get away from Fukushima and still be in North America. This is really a global phenomenon.

My yard is actually worse than this, every tree and plant is showing signs of distress. The peach tree has a few scrubby leaves left, it’s almost dead. I do not recall seeing any peaches on it this year. The pear tree is in better shape, though its leaves have holes and discolorations too. My morning glories on the fence died after a rainstorm a few weeks ago, with the exception of one plant (the only Turbina Corymbosa). There are morning glory plants growing under an awning, and they are fine, except for a few leaves which extend out and have rain falling on them. These leaves are discolored and have holes.

The second video shows elevated radiation levels and the mysterious black substance in Brazil. It appears that this black stuff is not confined to Japan, and is now traveling to the southern hemisphere.

  1. 2 of my main fears in one:

    1) Fear of the black “dust.”

    2) Fear that there’s nowhere to run from the black “dust.”

    How did it get to Brazil?? Where is that map?

      • Bobby1, you are amazing, my question was assumed to be completely rhetorical.

        ShineTheLight told me about the nuclear testing in the upper atmosphere South Atlantic Van Allen Belts mid-20th Century, the same area that has “anomaly” which is partly over Brazil. This anomaly exposes satellites, shuttles, etc. to higher levels of radiation, laptops crash, etc.

        ShineTheLight made the connection, could this have an impact on the higher readings in Brazil? If the Van Allen Belts are thickest around the equator, would this be protective?

        The South Atlantic Anomaly

        Summary of nuclear bombing of the ionosphere (great choice guys!):

        Project Argus (1958)

        Between August and September 1958, the US Navy exploded three fission type nuclear bombs 480 km above the South Atlantic Ocean, in the part of the lower Van Allen Belt closest to the earth’s surface. In addition, two hydrogen bombs were detonated 160 km over Johnston Island in the Pacific. The military called this “the biggest scientific experiment ever undertaken.” It was designed by the US Department of Defense and the US Atomic Energy Commission, under the code name Project Argus. The purpose appears to be to assess the impact of high altitude nuclear explosions on radio transmission and radar operations because of the electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and to increase understanding of the geomagnetic field and the behavior of the charged particles in it.

        This gigantic experiment created new (inner) magnetic radiation belts encompassing almost the whole earth, and injected sufficient electrons and other energetic particles into the ionosphere to cause world wide effects. The electrons traveled back and forth along magnetic force lines, causing an artificial “aurora” when striking the atmosphere near the North Pole…

        • NoNukes, the South Atlantic Anomaly means the Van Allen radiation belt is closest to the earth there. I wonder if this is interacting with Fuku fallout somehow.

          Project Argus created artificial radiation belts, which of course fell back to earth after a while, contaminating it more. Project Starfish and the Russian tests screwed up the Van Allen belts more.

          I think that Fuku radiation was the reason there was an aurora visible in the South earlier this year.

          • That aurora was on October 24 of last year. This was about the same time as a massive criticality occurred at Fuku.

            There was arc lightning observed between reactor #1 and the exhaust stack this morning.

            There are all sorts of connections here.

  2. Nuckelchen has a good video of an explosion of some kind at Fukushima. ChasAha provides a very good description of the series of events at the Fukushima webcam page.

    I received a response from my friend. I’ll send you his observations.

    • Majia, this is a new criticality coming on a two-week cycle from the last one.

      The last one was scaring the sheet out of me.

      I am very interested in hearing about the observations from your friend.

  3. Yes,…as am I! That pink/purple pixilation (criticality) that Nuck captured about one week ago,…I FELT. Period! We lost another goose to heart attack/seizures a few days ago too. Three more are sickly and off feed.

  4. And, I thought the yellow on our herty trees (black locust) was from the drought. The new ones (under two feet) are not effected. The older ones (over 5 feet) are, and parts of them died completely, though I gave them water. Last year, due to drought, most of the native apricot trees died, though, I am sure, thats from the drought. This is New Mexico, near Colorodo, reporting. Truthfully, I am staying indoors a lot, intuitively, with doors closed most of the time. (because of flies, lol) But, hey, maybe we all all experiencing the similarities of nature, as it combats radiactive decay. This idea of delayed fallback from space is interesting (from your commentators). Like to learn more. I recommend Fukishima Diary @angama_market to your readers.

  5. The fog in San Francisco looks more pink than usual, and it has, off and on, for a couple of weeks. Now I am not the only one to notice it, so I am mentioning it here. I have never seen pink clouds or fog here before, except at sunset of course, and this is different, it isn’t at sunset or sunrise. Two unmarked helicopters were back in the area today, coming from the north.

  6. It was a hot dry summer, and assumed some of the plant damage was from the unusual heat in the pacific northwest. My comfrey has had terrible mildew the last 2 summers. But most plants seemed fine other than not doing very well despite the nice weather. Yet things keep growing, it was a bumper blackberry season but many specific plants did have damage early on. But, I do think some of the damage may just be from the record breaking hot weather this year..
