Warm Spring, Dangerous Industrial Air & Japan’s Radiation

Wendy Weathersbee: As much as Americans may be enjoying this balmy Spring weather, our research team warns that this unusual weather bodes danger. While over 7,000 warm temperature records were set this Spring––some from data going back to the 19th century––not enough is said about health issues in that air!

Dr. Ad Versery: Right you are Wendy. Pollen counts are up across the country, and warmer air holds in industrial wastes. Dr. Aaron Bernstein of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School says:

“This early wake-up call for plants and animals can have disastrous health consequences, especially for children. Allergies cost the U.S. economy $ 6 – $12 billion annually. The early heat stimulates growth in plants and the pollen season has gotten longer . . . while the higher levels of carbon dioxide in the air stimulate pollen production in highly allergenic plants like ragweed.”

Wendy Weathersbee: Right! And Michael Oppenheimer, a Princeton University geoscientist, and lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, adds: “What we’re seeing now is not surprising in the greenhouse world . . . It’s just the beginning of our experience with the new atmosphere.”

Oppenheimer’s Climate Change Panel concluded: “ . . . an increase in heat waves, droughts, floods, severe storms and extreme temperatures as a result of human-spurred global warming, caused in part by rising emissions of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide emitted by fossil fuel burning.”

Sarah Newsworthy: Yes. And within that warm air are industrial pollutants and more carbon dioxide. SPX News Service quotes Saugata Datta, a geologist at Kansas State University who just completed a study of air over America: “In residential neighborhoods near manufacturing industries, a breath of air may be more hazardous than refreshing  depending on the location.”

Dr. Datta’s research team found: “ . . .elemental metal manganese in airborne particulate matter – a combination of dust, soot and other organic and inorganic particles suspended in a gas or liquid.”

Managanese was thought to be either nutritional or harmless for human health. “But more recently that thinking is changing. Manganese is a neurotoxin at certain levels when in water, so there is a question about if it’s toxic in air, too.”

Ally I. Feermeno: Wow, guys. And now I must add that radiation from last year’s Japan nuclear meltdown are in U.S. air as well. But more on that tomorrow. The Book of Revelation makes clear that filthy air, laden with death, is evidence of satanic activity: “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit (Revelation 9: 2). Pray that our leaders clean up our nation’s air!
