Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 04.21.16

ATOMIC RADIATION is threatening us all as we hear from a great documentary filmmaker and two of America’s most important health researchers.

Adam Horowitz tells us of his award-winning documentary NUCLEAR SAVAGE focused on the atomic bombing of the Marshall Islands and the horrifying death toll that followed.
When the US tested a nuclear weapon on Bikini atoll in the South Pacific it caused the death and destruction of hundreds of lives of native people it dismissed as “nuclear savages.”
Adams’ devastating film was fined in part by PBS, which then pulled it from a nationwide showing that might have informed millions of Americans of this horrible tragedy. Adam’s film
will show at the Uranium Film Festival at Los Angeles’s Raleigh Theater on April 27.

Legendary health researchers DR. Janette Sherman and Joe Mangano then tell us about the terrifying death toll from the Chernobyl accident, which happened, 30 years ago.
In 2009 three Russian scientists published studies indicating a million people have been killed by this fallout from this 1986 catastrophe. Working through the Radiation and Health Project,
Mangano and Sherman now estimate a similar death toll resulting from the disaster at Fukushima.

They also show that when a nuclear power plant opens, death rates in the area rise; when they shut, death rates go down, especially among children. In the four counties around Indian
Point, near New York City, the thyroid cancer rate is 70% higher than normal, a plague we’re now seeing around Fukushima.

These tragic findings demand our action to shut down ALL reactors. We are in debt to Adam, Janette and Joe for their great work, and for their eloquence on this important Solartopian
show.

The poll response that is generating the most attention is the finding that almost half of Israeli Jews agreed with the statement “Arabs should be expelled or transferred from Israel”: Israeli Jews are divided on the question of whether Arabs should be allowed to live …
