Anti-Nuclear and Human Rights Activist Mimi German returns to Nature Bats Last

The December 2019 episode of Nature Bats Last featuring Mimi German is embedded here;
Mimi is a houseless advocate focused primarily on houseless neighbors in St. Johns, Oregon. She is known for her anarchistic shutdowns of the Portland City Council for 6 consecutive months over issues concerning houseless people in Portland. She is also the co-founder of Jason Barns Landing, a non-transitional houseless village situated on land JBL took over and occupied from Metro in Portland. Jason Barns Landing is named after a houseless friend who died on the streets of St.
Johns while canning for his survival. Click on the embedded link directly above to take you to the Jason Barns Facebook page.


Mimi is also a poet, using her words as witness and as observer for a beauty unseen by most and to allow the darkness of this time to be witnessed in writing to the page. Finally, Mimi is currently helping care for her mother, who is contemplating hospice on the East Coast.
“Studies of Chernobyl and Fukushima also reveal crippling psychological fear of invisible contamination. This fear consumed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and people in Fukushima painfully associated their own experiences with those of people in the atomic-bombed cities. The situation in Fukushima is still far from physically or psychologically stable. This fear also plagues Chernobyl, where there have been large forced movements of populations, and where whole areas poisoned by radiation remain uninhabitable.”
The False promise of Nuclear Energy in a time of climate change;
“A huge cluster of jellyfish forced the Oskarshamn plant, the site of one of the world’s largest nuclear reactors, to shut down by clogging the pipes conducting cool water to the turbines.” Jellyfish clog pipes of Swedish nuclear reactor forcing plant shutdown.


“The revelations come on the heels of a report last week from the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on the aftermath of the 11 March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan. The report details how a spent fuel fire at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant that was crippled by the twin disasters could have released far more radioactivity into the environment.”

The January episode of Nature Bats Last will feature another interview with Stephen Jenkinson author of many books including the best seller “Die Wise”. Stephen’s website  is Orphan Wisdom;
Feel free to leave your comments below and to subscribe to the blog as we chronicle the great unraveling.

I'm an anti-imperialist, environmental activist and blue ocean sailor, who is passionate about the earth and all it's inhabitants without favour. Brace for imminent impact as we bare witness to the non-linear unraveling of the biosphere and habitability disappearing for most if not all complex life on the only habitable planet we know of. To quote President Niinistö in North Russia: ‘If We Lose the Arctic, We Lose the World’. Folks we have lost the Arctic.

    Hi Kevin. Just discovered how to contact you, so here is my contact with Guy.

    Hi Dr. McPherson. I had planned to offer my suggestion to you directly but after enjoying the above comments, my request will maybe add another theme. My request is simple. To date Peter Miller has been able to make, for himself, space in his inquiring mind for near-term extinction and has stuck with you for the continuing paradigm shifts occupying 11 sessions! That alone has my great respect for both of you. Attached to his growth with your assistance, last September he interviewed Phillese Todd with her PhD in quantum mechanics/engineering, and the opportunity seemed much favorable for both. It was, for me, a long-wished-for balance from another academic insight that added so well to your conservation biology. That interview was nearly 3 months ago when Phillise was contending with her own academic research into climate change and its impact in her life, on the life of her two children, and of the instructional content of her classes, plus her reticence to share with colleagues. So important was that interview to my knowledge-base, addressing abrupt climate change from two scholarly disciplines, that I ask if an update of her personal growth as she has faced that reality might make a highly enlightened 3-way discourse with you, Peter Miller, and Kevin Hester and others? It might also motivate her to bring her own data to a current status as could be added to Paul Beckwith who will shortly return from COP25. How could I be of assistance? David H.

    And here is his reply with which I agree:

    David H. Bailey, that’s a great idea. I would appreciate and welcome any effort at collaboration with Phillese Todd, Kevin Hester, and Peter Miller. Other scientists would be welcome by me (and please note I do not include Paul Beckwith as a scientist, for a variety of reasons).

    Kevin, is there a way I could help even with my limited internet skills?

    I have enjoyed all your articles.

    I was in Thailand when the Fukushima Tsunami and nuclear incident occurred. HKLN live covered the unravelling news with English subtitles. Cameras had picked up the rising cloud of a suspected explosion at the Daiichi power plant and started media speculated that there had been an explosion. It took at least 3 days before the Japanese authorities even released information and said that that there had been an incident, but it was under control. All of the Daiichi, Tepco workers who were sent in to deal with the aftermath, have subsequently died (as you would imagine). Their protective suits did not protect them.

    Nuclear accidents are always played down and most of the disaster is kept as much as possible from the general public. The radiation that poured into the sea from Daiichi, crossed the Pacific affecting the West Coast of North America… causing starfish to collapse into jellyfied corpses and many other species to wash up on beaches. With recent storms, some radioactive materials were again washed out to sea and it was no surprise for me to see massive die offs in waters around the coasts again (most noteably Alaska).

    People think that because animals can be seen in dead zones around Cher noble and Fukushima, that the radiation problem is over exaggerated. But those animals have shorter life spans and reproduce quickly giving false impressions that all is well. Likewise, people claim that there are lots of radiation survivors… They should see what their cancer coping regimes are like, before making those assumptions.

    Man’s arrogance is in our reluctance to see that our technologies are harmful to a living planet. They would work better on a dead one, but maybe that is not so far away. 😔

  3. And now TEPCO is testing the waters to see if they can get away with this. No doubt they will…

    ‘An Appalling Act of Industrial Vandalism’: Japanese Officials Do PR for Plan to Dump Fukushima Water Into Ocean
    The Japanese government told embassy officials from nearly two dozen countries that releasing the water into the ocean was a “feasible” approach that could be done “with certainty.”

Kevin Hester

Kevin Hester is currently living on Rakino Island, a small island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand, monitoring the unravelling of the biosphere and volunteering at the Rakino Island Nursery is currently developing a proposal to create a marine reserve near by. The Island has no grid tied electricity or reticulated water.  I catch my own water from the roof and generate my electricity from the ample solar radiation on the island.
