5. You won't see this report on TV

Damaging Low Level Radiation Report in LBN Link

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014304209

A new report examines the effects of low level radiation on life.

No telling what radiation blasted into the atmosphere is doing.
Surely it can't be good.

7. Has anyone noticed how unhealthy the people on that show look?

 

A lot of them are terrified of not being prepared for the "end" of whatever, but they look to be eating themselves to death.

If there is a possibility of collapse, Im comfortable knowing I can hike 5 miles without breaking a sweat.

Im dumbfounded by a lot of the approaches on there, but some of those people are sub-rational. Afraid of everything from solar flares to Chinese invasions, but how many mention climate change?

8. I imagine the stress of preparing for the end takes its own toll

I'm preparing to live forever.

9. Im preparing to live as long as its worth it to do so

 

Im ok with eating people, but I really would prefer to leave poor cattle alone if I can help it.

My "prepping" consists of learning to live off the land, which makes a good hobby if you enjoy catching salmon and hiking. Though, the salmon could be extinct in 2 decades.

10. People wouldn't taste as good with dill butter

so I'll stick to the salmon/vegetarian route.

Even sans-apocalypse, learning to live off the land isn't a bad idea. Hell, if enough people did it, it might help forestall the end.

11. "Though, the salmon could be extinct in 2 decades."

Probably not extinct. Endangered? Maybe so, and hopefully many of the Native Americans up in the northwest won't have their livelihoods destroyed once the salmon stocks start really declining; the various ill-place dam projects can't have helped much either.

13. You are diminishing the plight of the salmon

 

once the salmon stocks start really declining


That is very, very out of touch.

The Taimen Salmon are already officially classified as endangered, with stocks down 90%. 1/3 of Sockeye Salmon populations are already at risk or extinct (including my local population). A large portion of Atlantic Salmon populations have gone extinct.


Please Read:
Global warming tragedy: Fraser River salmon dying as climate change heats up waters
Northwest 'Salmon People' Face Future Without Fish
Oceans Turning Acidic Faster than Past 300 Million Years
WWF Status of Atlantic Salmon



The salmon do not have the time--evolutionary speaking--to adapt to the vast increase in water temperatures and quick acidification of the oceans; and this is only a fraction of the climate related problems they face. Add in everything else thats been happening (like over-fishing, pollution and habitat destruction) and their outlook is dismal.

In any case, the stocks have already drastically declined, and vast numbers are already endangered or extinct. You are late to the party.

12. There was one that was just a food hoarder.

I felt bad for the husband because he was enabling it bad, but at least it was fairly organized.

But generally I'd agree they are unhealthy.
