Houston Area Flooding Exacerbated By Man-Made Subsidence

31 08 2017

Mining Awareness +

While Hurricane Harvey brought record rainfall, the Houston area is more prone to flooding due to subsidence largely induced by humans. Land shifting, in conjunction with record rain, could make the earthen reservoir next to the South Texas Nuclear site more prone to failure and can also make drainage more difficult.

The surface elevation of the site ranges from about El. 32 to 34 ft mean sea level (MSL), which is equivalent to National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29), at the north boundary to between El. 15 ft to 20 ft MSL at the south boundary… A major feature of the site is the Main Cooling Reservoir (MCR), which is formed by…

No Houston evacuation “because it takes too long” – FEMA … exposes US Civil Defense for Nuke War is a complete SHAM.

28 08 2017

FEMA adminstrator, Brock Long on KHOU live news broadcast at 6:30 a.m. (CDT) said people were told to shelter in place in Houston and no evacuation order given because the weather forecast didn’t indicate where, over a large area, the water was going to flow. “Pinpointing what watershed that rain is going to go into is dang near impossible . . . “, he said. They didn’t know until it was actually happening. He said to evacuate a city of over 2 million would take days.

If Houston takes days to evacuate how long for bigger cities like New York and Los Angeles?

The evacuation of population scheme is the basis of US nuclear war strategy.

 

 





High Risk of Collapse Risk at Oroville Dam

Zero Hedge Scott Cahill: Collapse Risk At The Oroville Dam Is Still Unacceptably High

” . . .  In this week’s podcast, Scott details a number of concerning structural risks visible at Oroville that are again being de-prioritized, or ignored all-together. And as before, straightforward and inexpensive projects that have high potential to prevent a catastrophic failure of the dam are not being pursued. . . “

” . . . There are additional issues involving the unwanted moving of water through the dam — the so-called “green spots”. These are areas where water is migrating through the dam, probably through the indigenous soils adjacent to it. I’ve walked on these [at Oroville] and you can stick your foot down, and like your backyard after a torrential rain, water actually comes up into the footprint after you remove your foot. This is not a good situation. I believe there is a lot of movement of water through that dam, including at the structure itself that houses the gates that control the flow down the principal spillway.”

Horrific Employers, Amazon and Foxconn, Invade Wisconsin to Feed Off the Bones of the Once-Working Class

WSWS.orgAmazon and Foxconn in Kenosha, Wisconsin: The new American “special economic zone”
By Christopher Davion

“The opening of operations at Amazon’s Fulfillment Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2015 was a major early step in an economic transformation underway in the southeastern Wisconsin. Amazon, Foxconn, and other massive companies are taking advantage of the devastation wrought on this region over several decades of deindustrialization, to develop the area into a platform for low-wage labor.

On Wednesday, July 26, the Trump administration together with Governor Scott Walker and Representative Paul Ryan announced that Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics manufacturing giant which assembles the Apple iPhone and is the largest technology manufacturing contractor in the world, will be constructing a 20-million-square-foot factory in the southeastern Wisconsin region that would employ up to 13,000 workers. . . . “

“Foxconn, which generated approximately $135 billion in revenue in 2016, is notorious for its horrific working conditions and record on-the-job employee suicides at its operations in Shenzhen, China. The $10 billion investment is expected to receive $3 billion in tax subsidies and include plans to build a virtual city with company housing and stores, effectively turning the region much further into an American version of the “special economic zones” that exist in third world countries.”

All About the EMP Attack Drill Coming Aug. 23 – Operation Black Sky

Operation Black Sky: NOT a False Flag Event, But …

The Electric Infrastructure Security Council is an NGO, not a government agency or czarship.

2015 article – Threats to Electric Power Grid Could Result in “Black Sky Days”

“The societal impact of a “Black Sky Day”—a term used by electric infrastructure security experts when discussing a collapse of the North American power grid—would be devastating, according to Dr. Daniel Baker, distinguished professor of Planetary and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder.”

Additional items will go here in COMMENTS.

Opinion: It looks like these electric infrastructure security “experts” created a new threat to talk about, hold conferences about and extort money from billionaire energy bosses with. Just like FEMA was useless after Katrina, if there ever is some EMP attack these guys will be nowhere to be seen. They will probably go by private jet to some hangout in the Bahamas with all the loot they bag from these conferences.

9 08 2017

Radioactive plutonium and americium have been found in air samples collected where workers enter the secure area of the Hanford nuclear reservation in southeastern Washington, state health officials said Tuesday.

The Hanford public info website lies and says nothing happened.
