Who is behind ENENEWS???

Who is behind enenews.com, the site known as Energy News, which, for the time being, has been focusing solely on the fallout of the Japanese nuclear disaster?

The short answer is, we don’t know.

A domain registration lookup shows its private registration with the mysteriously named DomainSecrecy.net.

A ping of the domain shows the address of 98.158.182.89, which traces back to the internet domain host provider UK2 Group, which is located in Providence, Utah.

It is a mysterious site, indeed, with no About page, no mention of its authors, contact info, or its sources of funding, despite 144 posts since its inception on March 18, 2011.

With less than one full month online, the site already has a one-month Alexa rating of 129,331th place among over 20 million ranked sites on the Web.

What we do see, however, are scary headlines citing mass media sources, with added editorial.

For instance, the March 29 headline, Radioactive Iodine-131 in Pennsylvania rainwater sample is 3300% above federal drinking water standard.

3300% higher is 33 times higher, but 3300% sounds a lot scarier. The headline also draws a word association between rainwater and drinking water, despite going on to mention the mass media source that says a 3300% higher amount of radioactive iodine in rainwater samples is still 25 times less than would be of concern. Also, nowhere does the article mention that the half-life of radioactive iodine is eight days.

The article, however, adds emphasis in bold to the amount of radiation found in the rainwater samples and to the maximum EPA levels for drinking water, further making an association.

In the meantime, while many Americans are being focused on a very serious crisis for the Japanese, their focus is consequently shifted away from the more directly relevant unlawful presidential war decree on Libya, and the zero prosecutions for fraud against those who knowingly marketed subprime securities as AAA, unlike the more than a thousand convictions of the criminals involved in the far smaller savings and loan crisis of the 1980s.

You could always try READING Enenews...

... if you really, really want to know who is behind it. That's how I found out. Or does BRAWM not bother reading it for the same reason they don't bother testing anything anymore?

Professor Farnsworth

It doesnt matter if ene news

It doesnt matter if ene news posts the water as being 33 x larger, or 3300% larger. Any intelligent person knows the difference. Perhaps the media is always targeting the less intelligent people, always stating the low number, placating the masses. I have been looking at the issue for months now, with growing concern that the media is not reporting the actual figures. One instance is the radiated tuna. The media reported it as up ten times in one place , and not to worry, then as up only 3 % in the same article. Going from a pre Fukushima level of .6 bq per kg to 6.3 is ten times, or 1000%. The article never did mention that the Univ. of Texas ( not the govt, who wont test by the way) only tested the gamma radiation, not the beta, which is much higher in cesium. If ingested can be dangerous in the body, can cause cancer. The article also did not mention the Natl Acad. of Sci. who state no amount of rad. is safe, that ALL increased amounts lead to an increase in risk of cancer. The article also did not mention that the .6 level of pre fuku. is because of 60 yrs of testing, bombs, leaks. etc. There was basically NO level of rad. cesium before human caused levels... Cancer doctors say; do NOT eat the fish. would you eat fish clicking your counter 6 times a second? it would sound like a buzz. the article does not use the more public familiar unit of counts per minute, which would be 60 times 6.3 or about 400 cpm. Ene news is THE single most important site out there giving us breaking news at fukushima. I am so thankful to however runs it. It is giving us a chance to make a difference , perhaps before its too late. the meltdowndanger site is good too, as is fairewinds.

LOL

It scares me that someone who thinks 3300% sounds any different than 33 times can get into the UC Berkeley's nuclear engineering program.

thank you kindly

i must add

that being said, that i do think the conclusion regarding the website in question to be in error. not all of the assertions, sadly, that lead thence: to their credit, the webadmins have largely repented of any biases to which they made the mistake of giving in when greener. i used to come away, from time to time, with the distaste that comes from sensationalized content, and think it a pity, albeit not so much of one for me to forsake so excellent an internet resource as is Energy News.

i would be interested to know if anything has changed in the mind of the Original Poster in regards to content, a year having passed?

but even if not, thank you for hosting the results of your inquiry.

WHOS' BEHIND UC BERKELEY & THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY

"In the meantime, while many Americans are being focused on a very serious crisis for the Japanese, their focus is consequently shifted away from the more directly relevant unlawful presidential war decree on Libya..."

"PRESIDENTIAL" is correct in that the Obama administration has shredded the Constitution FAR MORE than Bush did, and launched MORE internationally criminal wars of aggression against sovereign nations under the guise of a 'war on terror' bringing them 'freedom and democracy' but in reality is a 'war on independent thought' designed to bring slavery and fascism to a 'New World Order.' The 'war' on Libya was designed to DISTRACT ATTENTION from Fukushima, which was NOT an 'accident' or 'natural disaster.' More synthetic radio-nuclides have entered the global biosphere from Fukushima than from all other nuclear 'accidents' and atmospheric atomic detonations combined; the ionizing radiation levels from Fukushima could more accurately be compared to that from a medium sized 'nuclear war'. That nuclear weapons are described in terms of 'mega-tons' instead of 'mega-Curies' is part of the massive on-going deception surrounding all-things-nuclear since the days of Eisenhower and the AEC's 'peaceful atom' propaganda campaign. All honest scientists, including Nobel laureate Linus Pauling, knew from day one that ionizing radiation is the ultimate biological weapon, and this is how these susbstances are being used today. ONE spent fuel rod from even a non-MOX reactor contains more than enough plutonium to kill every human being on Earth. Tens or hundreds of thousands of these BURNED UP within a few days of Fukushima's onset last March.

Great response!

These nazi's that keep hiding the facts about fukashima should hang for treason against the american people. To downplay this event as if we have nothing to worry about is idiotic deception. When are we going to rise above and hold these people accountable?

Want to say anything else about Enenews now?

Did you miss the part about Arnie Gunderson? Or ALL of the nuclear experts that have been showcased on Enenews?No one is distracted. They know EXACTLY what they should be focusing on.

Arnie Gunderson

Arnie and his wife are employed by Fairwinds Associates, a wind-power manufacturer who is currently involved here in Vermont. He is not an expert on nuclear energy and only produces disinformation to further the use of Wind power, he's a snake oil salesman! ENE news? check out Natural News for clues. They are lying to you, do not trust them, do a little fact-checking and you will see what I mean.

Your wrong!

He has a background in nuclear energy,which is more then you can say. do a little fact checking you'll see what I mean. Don't know if you can handle that.

WRONG!!! WRONG!!! WRONG!!!

I have done the fact checking on Mr. Gunderson, and he studied cooling towers.

He is NOT an expert in reactor physic and neutron transport as witness his completely ridiculous claim that the explosion of Unit 3 was a nuclear explosion.

I happen to be a PhD level scientist with expertise in neutron transport; and I know a mixture of plutonium and U-238 can NOT explode when the concentration of plutonium is less than 14%. MOX fuel as used in Unit 3 starts at 7% and goes down as plutonium is burned up.

Additionally, a nuclear explosion radiates in X-rays, which means that it radiates all lower frequencies, including the complete spectrum of visible light. Therefore, the initial fireball of a nuclear explosion has to be white.

Gunderson, himself, points out that the fireball at Unit 3 is yellow. That means that the explosion was not hot enough to radiate greens, blues, and violet. That means the explosion was not hot enough to be a nuclear explosion; but is hot enough to be a chemical explosion of hydrogen.

Gunderson's expertise in the nuclear field is with cooling towers; and he's been 100% WRONG about the reactor physics that he's extemporized on without the necessary knowledge to do so.

See if you can handle that truth.

What are you, twelve? Your

What are you, twelve? Your rhetoric is so banal, it makes my eyes hurt. Or, you know, maybe it's the fuel fleas.

Hmmm...this link leads to a mind-control victim website. Further clicking leads to a page containing the following statements regarding Gang Stalking:
"Gang Stalking is a systemic form of control, which seeks to destroy every aspect of a Targeted Individuals life. Using occupational health and safety laws, warning markers can be added to a targets file. Individuals can be added to a Threat Assessment List for monitoring. Once a target is flagged, a notification is sent out, and the target is followed around 24/7 by the various communities that they are in. A covert investigation might be opened, and electronic means used by the civilian spies as part of the covert monitoring and surveillance process.

The citizen informants can be parts of these community oriented programs, but are often just average citizens. Everyone in the targets life is contacted, advised as to why the individual has been listed or flagged. Advised not to discuss the notification and asked to be a part of the ongoing, never ending monitoring (systemic harassment) process. This process is covertly designed to destroy the target over time, leaving them with no form of support.

who is behind enenews?

who is behind enenews? ???!?!?!? SORRY ??? BUT????@@@!!

How about who is behind SILENCING the MEDIA on CONTAMINATION of our FOOD and WATER and MILK ??

AND WHO IS BEHIND ORDERING :NO testing for contamination whatsoever, PEOPLE with Geiger counters are panicking because their readings go of charts during rain, !! EPAS RADNET mystreriously goes offline every time there is a significant spike in radiation in the air ....

Who is behind media blackout of fukushima? Where are the hunderds if not thousands of specialists trying to figure out what can be done in JAPAN (AND NO I DONT MEAN HELP ON HOW TO KILL ALL THE NEWS OF RADIATION EFFECTS ON HEALTH-)

AND WHY HAS OBAMA DESEGNATED FUKUSHIMA DISASTER MANAGEMENT TO NRC AND NOT EPA, ALL DAMN GOOD QUESTIONS, THAT NEED PROMPT ANSWERING ,

Thank god we have enenews!

Mark of BRAWM explained that....

The claim is made above that people with Geiger counters are panicking when they see high reading during rain. Mark of BRAWM explained that. It's NORMAL.

http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/5108

That radioactivity in rain is NATURAL

The radioactivity in rain has been going on for as long as there has been rain. It's completely natural; and due to natural radioisotopes.

Mark has pointed this out before on this forum. We have all these little idiots running around with their Geiger counters crying "Fukushima! Fukushima!" whenever the Geiger counters detect something. The little pinhead morons don't have an clue as to what they are seeing, and what radionuclides from Fukushima would look like. ( You can't detect the Fukushima radionuclides with a Geiger counter. You have to do spectroscopy like BRAWM does with Germanium solid-state radiation detectors. You can't do spectroscopy with a Geiger counter. )

It's quite proper for Obama to delegate the response to NRC because they understand radiation. The little green pinheads at EPA, like those described above; don't have a clue.

Poor Troll

Sad that you choose to work on such a fine day, but alas, no fresh posts to taunt today?!? So you have to pick on a post from August 2011. Poor Troll, maybe you should get up off your fatarse and go outside and play.

Who is behind enenews

Thank you to whomever posted your comment. I am grateful to enenews and every other site that is posting and making available radiation informatoin. It seems the plan is to say info will be transparent and then make then unavailable. Those assured by hearing about transparency quit looking. I personally know three people who have been diagnosed with cancer in the past three days. These are individuals with no history and clean checkups prior to Fukushima. I think that the info that 10 pounds of plutonium evenly distributed across the world can kill the worlds population twice over is probably the case. And what was at Fukushima, was it tons of plutonium?

How much plutonium at Unit 3 in Fukushima

About 982 pounds of plutonium was shipped over from Areva in 2010 to be used in Fukushima Daiichi. Whether all of that was loaded into the MOX fuel assembly at Unit 3 is unknown...but it probably is a good guess.

Reality Check - a Good Nuclear News site

Here is a really good website with continuous up-to-date, around the world nuclear news, including the live fukushima cam and live chat:

http://realitycheck.no-ip.info/nnn.html

Excellent commentary

The same thoughts and observations crossed my mind as well about that site. Obviously, somebody's agenda is being pushed which is a shame because playing it straight down the middle is the best course. When you cook the facts and distort in order to play up your view point and play down another, then you do nobody any favors.

I've noticed the more advanced science gets, the less advanced the general public gets. There is wholesale embracing of tiny shards of "fact" in order to try and assemble a tapestry of utter disaster, danger and doom. The great age of paganism and ignorance is upon us in full fury as evidenced by so many inane comments here.

The way to fight governmental coverups is not by doing what governments do and distorting the truth. It's done by establishing credibility by being as forthright, honest and truthful as you can. I don't think enenews meets those ideals.

And What About The Mainstream Sources

...That, one week after Fukushima, suddenly just stopped reporting anything about it?

They've continued in that vein.

Look at what's happened to news and you'll see why people are seeking info on sites like this---because the "credible" sites don't want to publish anything that might be "controversial" --ie, that might make some advertisers or powerful people unhappy.

That pretty much describes most news sites and outlets, especially commercial sites. Look at all the advertising bucks being poured into the media by telecoms and you'll see why people also don't know that cell phones can, in fact, make you sick---as has been documented now over and over and over again by a number of studies, to the extent that even the WHO can't officially ignore it anymore.

But the LA Times story about the WHO putting cell phones on the list of possible carcinogens used headlines implying the opposite of the story, and quoted liberally from people who argued against the WHO's ruling.
That's the news for ya. That, and Occupy, and the Tea Party. The goal is to entertain, not inform. And when it comes to people getting in the street over not being represented, the answer is always to ridicule and make fun of them. And they succeed every time.

LOL

"The great age of paganism

"The great age of paganism and ignorance is upon us" INDEED! That is a truly awesome observation. We are godless and stupid. It's the dark ages all over again but instead of burning witches at the stake we are torching the reputation of Nuclear Physicists.. Science is the new religion but these days people are so used to being fed canned commentary and headlines and snippets so nobody truly understands that which they invest all of their faith in. Perhaps the masses need to up their dose of aderall or whatever the hell kind of speed the pharm industry is shoving down peoples throats these days.

Nuclear Physicists

are as a class awesome. The profiteers that refuse to follow the science and cut corners, suppressing information where it shows their profit before safety crimes are slime. When they send out the shills to frame their criminality as errors of the physicists it is time to was the slime down the drain.

THANK YOU

THIS is the problem with nuclear power and it seems you are the very first person I have seen on this forum acknowledging that...

shills and physicists

I agree that most physicists are fine folks and all. That said many are also enablers of shills, crooks, and greedy corner cutters, even if unintentionally. Many have side gigs as shills even if they call it "consulting work". Working for one of these nuclear conglomerates and expressing shock and disbelief when something goes wrong is not good enough. If the corner is cut, you make a fuss. If they wont fix the hazard to safety then you resign and inform regulators and the press. OR you can keep the paycheck.... just don't pretend to be surprised when it goes bad at the plant. No Nuremberg defense for crimes against humanity and the planet.

yes

Granted.

Where have you been friend? Thank you for the backing up the sentiment!

You Must Be Kidding - Who is Behind the News? You missed It!

Your post is simply not well thought out. Even if a site is putting some frightening information out it is better to alert people about the great dangers we face from radiation. If I were trying to get the attention of these dangers and priivy to information about the New World Order we were insultingly told by squinty eyes that would come, well I would hesitate to give my real name too. We live in dangerous times. Wake up! It is unreal that we are living in such corrupt times. People dare not give their identities out for fear of reprisals. Join the new world order. It is here.
What is galling is the nuclear power that is being pushed on citizens. The nuclear power industry refuses to leave. Even though Vermont citizens voted not to have their power plant license renewed the Nuclear Industry decided to have the federal government force it. Vermont citizens, who must be the brightest in the world to recognize that we do not have a right to create a product that ultimately will kill the world, were simply trumped. One must ask why this industry is so insistent on surviving and why the industry has such power. Nothing good will come from nuclear power. It belongs on stars and not on a planet. Read Tesla and understand his gifts to the world. He wished to give all citizens free energy. Instead, we are overcome with radiation, poisoned by Microsoft Smart Meters that add to the overall radiation accumulation, instead of solar powers - all paid by the serfs of the country. PG&E was given $3.3 Million in stimulus money from Oligarch leaders to buy Smart Meters and install Smart Meters. No mention was made that the stimulus money came from taxpayers who had a right to decide if their money was to go for solar or Meters. IT is bunk to say we have to have clean nuclear energy. We have to have clean solar energy, clean wind energy, clean water energy - we do not require nuclear energy. Safe and clean? How many will die from Fukishima? How many really died from Chernobyl? Have you looked up the gross number of nuclear accidents - there are 400 and counting. Understand, the nuclear industry is destroying our world. There are many tests that people can undergo without having radiation injected into their bodies. I suggest that anyone facing a medical test refuse the radiation and insist on a better way. It destroyed my health and I will never be the same person now. Radiation destroys and creates living zombies. That is what I became after being poisoned with radiation. So shut up about someone trying to warn people. No one cares about the government anyway because it is too large and too corrupt. Most people realize we can do nothing - we have no money and no power. The best thing to do is get out when you can. Bush passed laws that forbid us from leaving without paying through the nose but if you want to live, leave.
Who cares about the government right now? Pay attention and take a stand to eliminate nuclear industry and then take back our country. Life depends on this. Otherwise, without organization our only hope is to leave this country. The evil people who wish to force their New World Order on everyone are disgusting and certainly not stellar patriots.

"Radiation destroys and
