The Ocean is Broken (18 October 2013) a Fukushima reality


Description:

((Knowing what we do about the radiation flowing out into the Pacific ocean from Fukushima. I felt this visual of the reality we are facing has merit.)) -Magick The Ocean is Broken By GREG RAY Oct. 18, 2013, 10 was the silence that made this voyage different from all of those before the absence of sound, wind still whipped the sails and whistled in the rigging. The waves still sloshed against the fibreglass there were plenty of other noises: muffled thuds and bumps and scrapes as the boat knocked against pieces of was missing was the cries of the seabirds which, on all previous similar voyages, had surrounded the birds were missing because the fish were 10 years before, when Newcastle yachtsman Ivan Macfadyen had sailed exactly the same course from Melbourne to Osaka, all he'd had to do to catch a fish from the ocean between Brisbane and Japan was throw out a baited line."There was not one of the 28 days on that portion of the trip when we didn't catch a good-sized fish to cook up and eat with some rice," Macfadyen this time, on that whole long leg of sea journey, the total catch was fish. No birds. Hardly a sign of life at all.(Cont.)"Macfadyen signed up to this scheme while he was in the US, responding to an approach by US academics who asked yachties to fill in daily survey forms and collect samples for radiation testing - a significant concern in the wake of the tsunami and consequent nuclear power station failure in Japan."(*Imagine his surprise when he finds out how radioactive that water is)As Feel free to mirror and share this video anytime.

    It is the capitalism model that has dominated the last few centuries that is responsible for the state of the world today. Two mechanisms of it have put the world in a choke hold, artificial scarcity and planned obsolescence. The artificial scarcity takes food out of the mouths of the people who need it most to create the market for need, when there is in fact enough to feed the population of the world a few times over. They do this because you can maximise your profits, those people who really need the food cant pay top dollar anyway so why waste time & money to get it to them when they can serve an alternative purpose. With the impression of scarcity they can charge other people top dollar and that is the basic principle behind why some countries starve.
    Planned obsolescence was recognised by Henry Ford who realised his sales were starting to go down because his cars weren't breaking and the market was reaching saturation. Therefore he set to work to ensure they would fail after a given period of time and this has become the mechanism we call throw away society. The corporate selfish greed, disregard and lack of respect and understanding for non-monetary value of materials in favour of more profit, if not reigned in, will end humanity on this planet. The first responsible step is to start the decommissioning of Nuclear power globally, if Fukushima doesn't prove that is is not worth playing with then nothing will ever convince you.
    There are several ground-breaking ideas in development out there as to how to clean up the seas including an offshore plastic collection and recycling plant that looks very promising and has attractive profits

    We've no idea the cost as of yet for the decades of abuse we have done to our home, our planet. We are such a disposable society anymore, we don't understand something NOT being disposable. We will, but it's pretty much too late, even the toll of Fukushima hasn't come to fruition. I am not suggesting we give up, we owe our planet that, it just may not matter.
