World leaders say that Global Warming is a problem that needs to be addressed, however, what is most damning is their total disregard for how war machines, bombings, and depleted uranium make the planet a toxic environment and harm our fragile ecosystem. A recent study has revealed that the radiation fallout from the depleted uranium explosion in Ukraine reached England with a rise of approximately 600 ng/cubic meter in uranium levels in the air. Meanwhile, US scientists and military have simulated dropping nuclear bombs on Moscow and St. Petersburg to target Russian ICBM launch silos in a major nuclear first-strike exercise. The nightmare facing us is not Global Warming but Global Conditioning as the war-mongering elitists tell us that nuclear war will happen and that it is survivable. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with nuclear warfare analyst, James F. Ponder about GLOBAL WAR-NING – NUCLEAR WINTER WONDERLAND.




There have been many shows where I have pointed out just how devastating war can be for the environment. Meanwhile, world leaders continue to say that Global Warming is a problem that needs to be addressed — and what is most damning is their total disregard over how war machines. bombings and depleted uranium make the planet a toxic environment and harm our fragile ecosystem.

NowClimate cultists are trying to scare us once again about the rising temperatures.

A prominent climate scientist is now saying that for the first time, the global average temperature on Friday last week was more than 2 degrees Celsius hotter than levels before industrialization.

This data was shared on X by Samantha Burgess, deputy director of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, based in Europe.

The threshold was crossed just temporarily and does not mean that the world is at a permanent state of warming above 2 degrees, and no one has died or has been harmed but this of course is reported as a symptom of a planet getting steadily hotter and hotter, and moving towards a longer-term situation where climate crisis impacts will be difficult — in some cases impossible — to reverse.

In a few weeks from now world leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, and fossil fuel producers will be meeting in Dubai to discuss the so-called Climate Emergency.

The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, more commonly referred to as COP28, will be the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference, held from November 30th until December 12th at Expo City, Dubai.

The question arises, will the aftermath of COP28 help to save the planet? But, on the other hand, does the planet need help, or is it human civilization that’s in trouble? After all, the planet has been through worse, and certain parts of the world are going to become ecological disasters because of the wars that are happening in tandem.

It should be noted that 30 years of COPs have yielded very little progress towards the reduction or regulation or removal of greenhouse gases. Governments have never taken it seriously –and again the wars are bearing bitter fruit,

A recent study has revealed that the fallout from the depleted uranium explosion in Ukraine reached England with a rise of approximately 600 ng/cubic meter in uranium levels in the air in southeast England due to particles released from the Khmelnytskyi explosion.

Gamma radiation data from detectors positioned to the northwest of the attack site. The data indicated heightened radiation levels in Poland near the Ukraine border and extending through Germany. The conclusion drawn suggested the possibility that a warehouse, purportedly storing Uranium weapons supplied by the UK, had been impacted. It was hypothesized that the Uranium exploded, generating a substantial fireball, and the resulting particles from the explosion dispersed with the prevailing wind across Europe at the time.

The data sparked a science article investigating the explosion in Khmelnytskyi.

The article sparked significant debate on the internet, with numerous self-proclaimed fact-checkers and “experts” disputing the conclusions. This illustrates the current state of internet discourse. The article was dismissed as Russian disinformation.

However, it’s crucial to note that while Uranium emits weak gamma radiation, the daughter element Thorium-234 can contribute to increased gamma signals. Additionally, natural radioactive gas, radon, can elevate gamma signals during rainfall and low-pressure systems. A Polish laboratory attributed the heightened signal to radon, specifically reporting the presence of the radon daughter Bismuth 214, seemingly dismissing the claim of a Uranium cloud over Poland. Nevertheless, it was pointed out that there were no concurrent low-pressure systems that could explain the abrupt increase in gamma signals, leaving the matter unresolved.

Uranium levels in the air across Europe are generally not systematically monitored. Available data on Uranium in the air is derived from the High Volume Air Samplers (HVAS) at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) in Aldermaston, Berkshire. These samplers were established in the early 1990s following a public inquiry into a child leukemia cluster near the site.

Legal obligations mandate AWE to regularly measure Uranium, Plutonium, and Tritium at various locations, both near and far from the weapons factory. This data has been previously used to identify Depleted Uranium from the Iraq wars that had dispersed to England.

Concerning the Khmelnytskyi incident, recent Uranium data from AWE was obtained through a Freedom of Information request. The data, presented in an Excel file, was graphically represented using Excel’s functions. Figure 1 illustrates the filter levels for three offsite locations during the period from May 15th to June 15th, coinciding with the explosion. The results confirm an increase in Uranium levels during that timeframe. Data from onsite locations also reflects a similar rise.

Two journals, namely the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and Conflict and Health, either declined to consider or publish the paper on Uranium increases during the Ukraine war, despite the provision of raw data. The paper was subsequently shared on a preprints site where it gained attention.

Figure 1 depicts a rise of approximately 600ng/cubic meter in Uranium levels in the air in South East England due to particles released from the Khmelnytskyi explosion. While seemingly inconspicuous, considering the mean size of a Uranium particle is below 1 micron, individual inhalation of about 24 cubic meters a day results in an average lung intake of 0.432mg over a month. This translates into 200 million particles per person in the area and along the plume’s trajectory in the UK. Considering findings in Fallujah, a 2010 study demonstrated a substantial increase in cancer and congenital malformations in babies, indicative of genetic damage, following the use of Uranium weapons in the second 2003 Iraq war.

Subsequent identification of excess Uranium in the mothers of birth defect children using hair samples and mass spectrometry further supports the long-term effects of Uranium exposure.

Research in Iraq underscores the significant genetic and cancer health effects of Uranium particles, potentially a primary cause of cancer in the Hiroshima victims exposed to Uranium particles in the “black rain.”

As I stated back in the spring, the depleted Uranium on the tips of the missiles would mean that the wars have turned nuclear.

England is now downwind of the radioactive particles and they will continue to spin around the earth and potentially show up in rainwater.

Levels in Poland, Germany, and everywhere else on its journey to England, will have been much higher. But there are no measurements available.

Meanwhile US scientists and military have simulated dropping nuclear bombs on Moscow and St. Petersburg to target Russian ICBM launch silos in a major nuclear first-strike exercise.

The exercise was conducted in anticipation of the transfer of two squadrons of nuclear-capable F-35s to Great Britain.

It is noted that along the way all nuclear-capable F-35s in Europe will be equipped with the new nuclear bombs.

This has led to Russia responding with a warning to America by releasing a video of the launch of an RSM-56 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile from a new nuclear-powered submarine in the White Sea, what the Russian Ministry of Defense called “part of the final phase of their test program” after which a decision will be made if that particular sub is accepted into the Russian Navy.

With the War News story reporting that the Russian Navy already has three Borei-class submarines in service, along with that one which is currently completing trials, while three more Borei-class subs are under construction, they also alarmingly report that each of those “Emperor Alexander III” Borei-class nuclear-powered subs can launch 16 different nuclear missiles from them during a time of war, capable of hitting 10 different targets, meaning just those 3 subs already on duty can strike 30 different US cities. We take a look at which 30 US cities will most likely be hit by Russian nuclear weapons in a Russian response to any kind of US nuclear attack upon Russia in the next section of this story below.

While that Russian weapon, the RSM-56 Bulava (NATO code SS-NX-30 or SS-N-32), was declared operational in 2013 on those Borei class nuclear ballistic missile submarines, and the recent test was successful, hitting a target thousands of kilometers away on the Kamchatka Island Peninsula in the Far-East of Russia.

Newsweek reported this:

The United States decided to simulate nuclear strikes on Moscow and St. Petersburg with these weapons and to predict the results, that is, to count the number of victims among the inhabitants of the area,” reports the American magazine Newsweek, giving some details.

The authors of the report pointed to the need to improve the US nuclear arsenal to contain China and Russia. Production of the B61-13 will not increase the total number of weapons in the US nuclear arsenal, it will simply provide greater flexibility in the use of existing capabilities.

The B61-13 would have a much larger impact area and hit 24 times more powerfully (360 kilotons) than the bomb dropped by the United States on Hiroshima in August 1945.

In the event of a drop on the largest Russian megacities, the damage will be colossal.

It is estimated that:

311,480 people will be killed and another 868,860 injured if Moscow is hit.

Everything in a radius of just under 1 km from the epicenter will turn to dust.The explosion will destroy buildings and probably kill everyone else within a 1-mile radius. People within a 3-kilometer radius will suffer from high levels of radiation and die within a month. Another 15% of survivors will die shortly afterward of cancer. In St. Petersburg, 360,150 people may die and another 685,930 people will suffer.

The fire from the explosion will burn for more than six hours, creating a deadly atmosphere over an area of nearly 170 square km, about 10-15 times larger than in Hiroshima.

Depending on weather conditions, 90 percent of the population of the lower 48 U.S. states, as well as people living in Mexico’s northern states and the most populous regions of Canada, would be at risk of receiving lethal doses of radiation.

Using weather patterns recorded through 2021, scientists simulated the aftereffects of an 800-kiloton warhead hitting every one of the 450 silos at once to cripple the US arsenal. First, they mapped how wind patterns would have carried the fallout on each day of 2021.

Researchers used the 2021 weather data to compute a more conservative estimate: the average risk of radiation exposure on a hypothetical day. ‘They thereby averaged the impact of shifting winds on radioactive fallout across the continent,’ according to the report.

If you think you’re safe from Radioactive fallout just because you live far away from the big cities, or because you live nowhere near America’s nuclear silos, you’ll need to rethink your strategy to survive such a dreaded event.

This would also be a fulfillment of what the Deagle analysis gave us back in 2014.

According to the Deagel forecast, America’s population would plummet from just over 310 million in 2017 down to just 99 million by the end of 2025. Western European nations, especially the U.K. and Germany, were forecast to see similarly drastic decreases in population, as were Canada and Australia.

If the Deagel calculations turn out to be even close to accurate, the most unsafe places to live over the next three years will be the United States, Canada and the U.K., followed by Germany, Australia and the rest of the E.U. nations.

This population forecast was so controversial, showing population reductions of 68.5 percent in the United States (from 2017 levels) and between 25 and 70 percent for almost every Western European country, that the study mysteriously disappeared from Deagel’s website in March 2021.

The Deagel Corporation founder was a military contractor who had sources well positioned in the deep state. The Deagel Corporation is an offshoot of US military intelligence which collects data for high-level decision-makers and prepares confidential briefing documents for agencies like the National Security Agency, the United Nations and the World Bank.

Deagel’s predictions seemed so far-fetched in 2014 that some folks accused Deagel of engaging in a psy op. But maybe Deagel had good sources to back up its analysis.

Now they don’t seem at all out of the picture that this simulation confirms a mass culling from a nuclear winter wonderland.

Henry Kissinger the 100-year-old war criminal once declared that “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the Third World, because the U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.”

When Klaus Schwab another apprentice to Kissinger established the World Economic Forum he took his cues from the Club of Rome which once concluded:

In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and interactions, these phenomena constitute a common threat which everyone must confront.

But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself. “

It is no surprise that with such a conclusion, part of the solution prescribed was the need for population control.

Zbigniew Brzezinski head of the Council on Foreign Relations once said :

“Today it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.”

We have always known how this is possible — especially during the Cold War… simulations make it harder to believe a nuclear confrontation is survivable.

The British also confirmed the American nuclear simulations.

“Simulations of dropping a 360-kiloton American bomb on Moscow show that it would cause hundreds of thousands of casualties, around a million injuries and widespread devastation.”

Nuclear weapons can destroy societies; as we’ve noted before, nuclear fire is more powerful by a factor of 10 million to 100 million than chemical fire in conventional explosives.

While a nuclear weapon has not been used in combat since World War II, there have been significant risks: At least eight nuclear-armed nations have carried out 2,056 nuclear weapons tests underground and in the air, as well as dozens of false alarms and close calls.

The danger of misunderstanding or miscalculation grows when nuclear weapons are kept on launch-ready alert, as they are by the United States and Russia today.

Moreover, Russia has repeatedly threatened to use nuclear weapons during its war against Ukraine, showing how, even when nuclear weapons are not used, they can play an outsize role in coercion and conflict.

Israel also mentioned the possibility of the Samson option while fighting Palestinian terrorists.

The Samson Option was first spoken of in 1973 about Israel’s plan to fire off all their nukes and initiate a global nuclear holocaust if their existence is threatened. Israel’s nuclear doctrine dictates that a “nonconventional” attack requires one in response, meaning, a nuclear one – the Samson Option is a grand strategy that entails mutually assured destruction and a scorched earth policy.

Most people in the world will agree that war is a horrible thing. Throughout history, it has not only killed and maimed young men in their prime without regard to the justice or injustice of their cause, but, in its modern form, also brought death, homelessness, and misery to millions of innocent civilians. In addition, war has in our own time helped breed the spread of terrorism, raised the specter of a nuclear holocaust and the destruction of life as we know it, robbed us of wealth that might otherwise have been invested in meeting real human needs, and worked to further divide humanity at a time when we have better means than ever before to unite it in the cause of building a more just, secure, and happy world.

Many people will readily concede these points. Yet, without thinking too deeply on the matter, they then recur to the culturally conditioned notions that war has always been with us and is, in fact, necessary as a last resort when conflicts with other nations or groups within nations seem beyond conciliation by reasoned compromise.

Again the nightmare facing us is not global warming but global conditioning, telling us that nuclear war will happen and that it is survivable.

Sure, some will survive — but they will envy the dead.

    You know, nuclear war is survivable. Just look up the movie “Threads”. Everyone lives in a happy paradise after the bombs drop!
