What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

The waters of the Pacific off the California coast are transparently clear. Problem is: Clear water is a sign that the ocean is turning into desert. From Alaska to Central America, and beyond, sea life has been devastated.

Is it Fukushima, or nature running its own course, or some kind of perverse wrath emanating from global warming? For a hint, scientists refer to the lethal ocean warming over the past few years as "the Warm Blob." After all, global warming hits the ocean much, much harder than land. Up to 90% of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming is absorbed by the ocean, which is fortuitous for humans. Just imagine the chaos if the situation were reversed: Mobs of regular ole people morphing into maddened gangs striving for food, huddled in far northern latitudes while Mid America scorches brittle crops in sandy soil, a dystopian lifestyle.

In the United States, the patent protection process as it relates to the drug industry has been distorted by the political system, intense lobbying and large campaign contributions. The result has been pricing contrary to the greater good of the nation.

The intent of the patent process and the balance between the dual objectives have been warped over the past decade. Increasingly, drug companies are not investing in R&D proportional to the profits they earn from the drugs they bring to market, despite their protests to the contrary.

The system of population control that was instituted in 1945 as a substitute to war and the obverse side of nuclear deterrence was from the very beginning the cooperative effort of the Allied Powers: the U.S., the Soviet Union/Russia, and the U.K.

The Chernobyl accident just like Fukushima were no accidents but intentional state-sponsored sabotage to lower life expectancy and the dependency burden of the old by increasing morbidity and mortality. The Chernobyl disaster took place in 1986 when the life expectancy of the Russian people first reached 70. After the disaster, life expectancy steadily decreased from 70 to 64 by 1994. It has since recovered and has been stabilized at 70 since 2011. It will be interesting to see if Japan's life expectancy will also decrease in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster and if a similar man-made disaster is planned for Europe.

"It is not a question any more: radiation produces cancer, and the evidence is good all the way down to the lowest doses," says the late Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley.

"As the element is decaying it is throwing off radiation, and the radiation, if it hits the DNA in the nucleolus and the nucleus of a cell, can alter that DNA in ways that can produce things like cancer," Hartmann said. "Now it can also cause simply the cell to die or it can mutate the cell in all kinds of other weird ways, and so it's kind of a numbers game. If you irradiate a million cells... you might get two or three that become cancerous. That's all it takes, right? You've got cancer," Hartmann continued in his video report. "The cesium could cause no cancer, or it could cause cancer in the first cell it irradiates. To say that there is a safe level of radiation is frankly wrong. It's just wrong."

Fish kills are a normal part of nature, in some cases.

The city found out about the kill early in the week, and says workers have been cleaning up thousands of pounds of the dead fish over the last few days - mainly to contain the smell.

For many Girl Scout troops it is officially cookie season. I feel guilty saying no to the sweet, enthusiastic girls standing outside my grocery store who use their smiles and newly practiced sales pitches to ask how many boxes I'd like to order.

But as a physician who is passionate about health promotion, I politely tell the girls, "No, thanks." I am concerned that every bite and every sale not only delivers an unhealthy snack, but also a dangerous nutrition message. And I'm surprised that more doctors aren't speaking up about this.

"I am deeply offended by the lies being told by the US Government - and more specifically, by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS)."

I am reminded of the 935 now-documented lies told by Dick Cheney to justify a $5 trillion war and multiple occupations from Afghanistan to Niger - or in more Nordic terms, the falsification by the Swedish military, in collaboration with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and CIA, of a Russian submarine that never existed, allegedly "invading" Swedish waters.

Known as the Trans-Pecos pipeline, the relatively short 143-mile project would carry natural gas from western Texas' Permian Basin - likened to "America's Saudi Arabia" as the country's "Most Important Oil and Gas Resource" by Forbes.

"They figure they can just show up and condemn your land," landowner Tom Beard told the Tribune. Beard and his wife and former Brewster County judge, Val, noted they'd never had concerns about the state's pervasive oil and gas industry - until they caught a surveyor for ETP trespassing unannounced and unwelcome on their land in March.

The thawing Arctic, and its potentially vast deposits of minerals and natural gas, is opening the global community to intense competition among major geopolitical players.

"There will be strategic competition over resources - hydrocarbons and shipping routes, primarily - and global warming will exacerbate them by exposing those resources," Stavridis said. Stavridis, the current dean of the Fletcher School and a retired four-star admiral whose last command was Supreme Allied Commander Europe, believes the U.S. is far behind other competitors, namely Russia, in pursuing interests in the region.

The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget.

The report, issued in January 2015, identified "a clear path" for the Defense Department to save $125 billion over five years. The plan would not have required layoffs of civil servants or reductions in military personnel. Instead, it would have streamlined the bureaucracy through attrition and early retirements curtailed high-priced contractors and made better use of information technology.
