China pollution wafting across Pacific to blanket U.S.: studyPollution from China travels in large quantities across the Pacific Ocean to the United States, a new study has found, making environmental and health problems unexpected side effects of U.S. demand for cheap China-manufactured goods. On some days, acid rain-inducing sulfate from burning of fossil fuels in China can account for as much as a quarter of sulfate pollution in the western United States, a team of Chinese and American researchers said in the report published by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, a non-profit society of scholars. Cities like Los Angeles received at least an extra day of smog a year from nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide from China’s export-dependent factories, it said. “We’ve outsourced our manufacturing and much of our pollution, but some of it is blowing back across the Pacific to haunt us,” co-author Steve Davis, a scientist at University of California Irvine, said.

LOVE YOURSELF INTO LIFE - THE MAGIC BOOK

Love brings you closer to the greatest mystery of all — you. When you love another, you love yourself, you embrace yourself, you become passionate with self. When you are in joy with yourself, you are embracing God within your being, the principle, and you are becoming a knowing force that is awesome in its power. Every feeling you experience — every feeling — brings you closer to the identity of the enigma called self.

Dear Mr. President… #Syria #Obama #Peace #War #Fracking #Flouride #GMO #Chemical # Weapons

There are far too many stories coming out of the middle east for anyone to even pretend to know what’s really going on. You won a Noble #Peace Prize for christ’s sake. It’s time you start living up to what that means. Make peace happen!! Figure it out. Supplying weapons and/or sending our troops would make the peace prize you won a joke and my friends right about you. That you’re just like the rest of the corporate owned members of our government. Let’s end the chemical weapons used at home. GMO, Fracking, and flouride, to name a few. All of these are chemicals used on Americans everyday creating a slow chemical death. These chemicals cause cancer and disease but they are still used in our food and water… #Syria? How about #America? End the use of chemical weapons here. Syria will work itself out…

Radiation readings spike at water tank at Japan’s ruined nuclear plantBy Tetsushi Kajimoto TOKYO (Reuters) - Radiation near a tank holding highly contaminated water at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant has spiked 18-fold, the plant’s operator said on Sunday, highlighting the struggle to bring the crisis under control after more than two years. Radiation of 1,800 millisieverts per hour - enough to kill an exposed person in four hours - was detected near the bottom of one storage tank on Saturday, Tokyo Electric Power Co, also known as Tepco, said. An August 22 readings measured radiation of 100 millisieverts per hour at the same tank. …
