Flesh Eating Bacteria Tied To BP Oil Spill Tarballs

The Alabama Gulf Coast attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, and since the 2010 BP Oil Spill, tens of thousands of tar balls.

A couple hundred miles away at Auburn University, Dr. Cova Arias, a professor of aquatic microbiology, conducts research on the often-deadly and sometimes flesh-eating bacteria Vibrio Vulnificus. Arias’ research at Auburn, and through the school’s lab at Dauphin Island, has focused on Vibrio’s impact on the oyster industry which was brought to a standstill three years ago by the BP Oil Spill. In 2010, out of curiosity, Arias set out to discover if Vibrio were present in the post-spill tar balls washing up on the Alabama and Mississippi coasts. She was highly surprised by what she found.

“What was clear to us was that the tar balls contain a lot of Vibrio Vulnificus,” said Arias.

Arias can show an observer Vibrio in the lab as it appears as a ring on the top of the solu…

Methane Feedback and Abrupt Climate Change/cont.

Disclaimer: I want to add this disclaimer to cover any posts here regarding Methane feedback. I absolutely DO NOT support the geoengineering of our atmosphere through spraying of chemicals as a solution to climate destruction. This could well tip our atmosphere even further with unknown consequences. ANY references to it on ANY sources I link to here are not supported by me. I have added certain sources simply to illustrate and inform regarding the real concern we must have with methane feedback- which can be addressed though initiatives to decrease of CO2/methane emissions such as a ban on fracking as well as through sustainable agriculture, afforestation, renewable energy and financial incentives not tied to markets but that hold markets accountable. Thank you.IMPORTANT UPDATE ON FAILURE OF HUMANITY:

Update-November 11:Doctors Without Borders:"Unprecedented" Disaster

It is much worse than thought. Please do all you can to help the people of the Philippines in these areas as desperation is taking its toll due to lack of communication, food and water. If you are wary of donating to organizations because you do not trust them, Doctors Without Borders is then one organization you should donate to as they are completely trustworthy and get aid to those effected directly.

To note:

UN COP Conference 19 in Warsaw has begun.

Typhoon prompts 'fast' by Philippines climate delegate

I can almost guarantee that as much as Obama has talked about addressing climate change when it is politically convenient, the US will once again be one of the "developed" countries refusing to nail down anything near adequate to address this abrupt climate change being experienced particularly by the poor of our world.




Imagine that. They say you "violate" diplomatic protoc…

Message From Harvey Wasserman-Fukushima

Image
We have tentative news that the critical take-down of fuel rods at Fukushima #4 may be delayed two weeks or more.

This is critical news.

So are the horrifying reports that radiation from Fukushima has reached the coast of Alaska.

Please take a look at my current blog asking that nuclear advocates first go to Fukushima.

On Thursday, November 7, at 1pm, we'll turn in the first round of signatures to Ban Ki-Moon at the UN. We have exceeded 112,000 people signing in. It's a tremendous accomplishment.

We must keep going. We will continue to grow this petition and turn in more and more signatures as the crisis deepens.

We are joined by 40,000 signers at www.rootsaction.org, along with thousands more from the Green Shadow Cabinet, which has also brought in many organizational signers.

We continue to welcome many different views on how to deal with Fukushima.

But above all, we cannot stop. Tepco has amply shown their incompetence at Fukushima. Japan, with a n…

Crying Earth Rise Up/Documentary



From link:

"Crying Earth Rise Up is a compelling story documenting the human cost of uranium mining and its impact on sacred water.

The Story

Crying Earth Rise Up is a broadcast-length documentary film that tells the story of two women's parallel search for answers to the question: Why are there high levels of radiation in our drinking water and how can we protect our families and community against this threat?"
