• Drone flyover of freshwater reservoirs on Majuro Atoll, Marshall Islands

    A drone video provided to The WorldPost by the Majuro Water and Sewer Company shows the seven freshwater reservoirs near Majuro's international airport. The airport's runway is the catchment area that fills these reservoirs: rain falls on the tarmac and is funneled to pipes underground, then pumped into the holding pools. During intense drought, when little rain falls, these reservoirs can become dangerously depleted Subscribe to The World Post: http://www.youtube.com/user/worldpostvideo?sub_confirmation=1 Get More WorldPost!

  • Marshall Islands and Climate Change

    Dr. John D. Harper, FGSA,FGAC, PGeol., former director of the Geological Survey of Canada, discusses whether or not the Marshall Islands are sinking due to sea level rise from global warming, or if it is a matter of erosion of these tiny islands by the forces of the sea. He notes that other geologic and ocean factors affect the rise or fall of land. These are unrelated to human effects on climate. He points out that Prince Edward Island may be affected by sea level rise at some point, though much of the land in the region is still rising due to post-glacial rebound from the melting of massive glacial ice, thousands of years ago.

  • Operation Crossroads Nuclear Bomb Test (1946)

    Operation Crossroads was a series of two nuclear weapon tests conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in mid-1946. They were the first nuclear weapon tests since Trinity in July 1945, and the first detonations of nuclear devices since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. The purpose of the tests was to investigate the effect of nuclear weapons on warships. The Crossroads tests were the first of many nuclear tests held in the Marshall Islands, and the first to be publicly announced beforehand and observed by an invited audience, including a large press corps. They were conducted by Joint Army/Navy Task Force One, headed by Vice Admiral William H. P. Blandy, rather than by the Manhattan Project, which had developed nuclear weapons during World War II.

    The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (Marshallese: Aolepān Aorōkin M̧ajeļ), is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of 68,480 people spread out over 24 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipel...

She reads her poem, "Two Degrees." Climatologists say that the best-case scenario of immediate and dramatic curbs on carbon emissions is that planetary surface temperatures will increase by at least 2 degrees Celsius in the coming decades. "At a climate change conference, a colleague tells me 2 degrees is just a benchmark for climate negotiations. I tell him 2 degrees is a gamble," says Jetnil-Kijiner.

Operation Crossroads was a series of two nuclear weapon tests conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in mid-1946. They were the first nuclear weapon tests since Trinity in July 1945, and the first detonations of nuclear devices since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. The purpose of the tests was to investigate the effect of nuclear weapons on warships. The Crossroads tests were the first of many nuclear tests held in the Marshall Islands, and the first to be publicly announced beforehand and observed by an invited audience, including a large press corps. They were conducted by Joint Army/Navy Task Force One, headed by Vice Admiral William H. P. Blandy, rather than by the Manhattan Project, which had developed nuclear weapons during World War II. A fleet of 95 target ships was assembled in Bikini Lagoon and hit with two detonations of Fat Man plutonium implosion-type nuclear weapons of the kind dropped on Nagasaki, each with a yield of 23 kilotons of TNT (96 TJ). The first test was Able. The bomb, named Gilda after Rita Hayworth's character in the 1946 eponymous film, was dropped from the B-29 Superfortress Dave's Dream of the 509th Bombardment Group on July 1, 1946, and detonated 520 feet (158 m) above the target fleet. It caused less than the expected amount of ship damage because it missed its aim point by 2,130 feet (649 m). The second test was Baker. The bomb, known as Helen of Bikini, was detonated 90 feet (27 m) underwater on July 25, 1946. Radioactive sea spray caused extensive contamination. A third deep water test, Charlie, planned for 1947, was canceled primarily because of the United States Navy's inability to decontaminate the target ships after the Baker test. Ultimately, only nine target ships were able to be scrapped rather than scuttled. Charlie was rescheduled as Operation Wigwam, a deep water shot conducted in 1955 off the California coast. Bikini's native residents agreed to evacuate the island, with most moving to the Rongerik Atoll. Later, in the 1950s, a series of large thermonuclear tests rendered Bikini unfit for subsistence farming and fishing. Because of radioactive contamination, Bikini remains uninhabited as of 2013, though it is occasionally visited by sport divers. Although planners attempted to protect participants in the Operation Crossroads tests against radiation sickness, one study showed that the life expectancy of participants was reduced by an average of three months. The Baker test's radioactive contamination of all the target ships was the first case of immediate, concentrated radioactive fallout from a nuclear explosion. Chemist Glenn T. Seaborg, the longest-serving chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, called Baker "the world's first nuclear disaster."

My other project: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10202025971168781&set=a.1961952986439.54831.1771279705&type=3&theater My name is Haejee Park, a recent college grad from South Korea. I have spent the past year volunteering in the Republic of Marshall Islands in order to give back to the community of global society after my 12 years of privileged education life. This was made as an appreciation for my amazing experience in this beautiful country. It is really hard for me to describe what this video encompasses. So, I put it all in the video. The Marshall Islands are located in the central Pacific Ocean with their tropical paradise, outer islands, in the beautiful coral fields. Bikini Atoll, one of the outer islands, was a victim of U.S. Nuclear Bomb experiment, and still suffers from its remaining hazards to this day. There are about 53,000 people in this country, and they all face a future of water level elevation that will sink the entire country in 20 years caused by the global warming. But, I realized that happiness is all around, only waiting for us to realize ourselves. It did not take much. Just one smile a day.

" Certains semblent au courant que le maillot de bain “bikini” a été nommé en hommage aux explosions nucléaires qui ont détruit l’île de Bikini. Les États-Unis ont fait exploser soixante-six engins nucléaires dans les îles Marshall entre 1946 et 1958 – l’équivalent de 1,6 bombe Hiroshima chaque jour pendant 12 ans. " (John Pilger) Cet extrait vidéo est tiré du " chocumentaire " italien Mondo Cane de 1962.

The Marshall Islands, officially the Republic of the Marshall Islands (Marshallese: Aolepān Aorōkin M̧ajeļ), is an island country located in the northern Pacific Ocean. Geographically, the country is part of the larger island group of Micronesia, with the population of 68,480 people spread out over 24 low-lying coral atolls, comprising 1,156 individual islands and islets. The islands share maritime boundaries with the Federated States of Micronesia to the west, Wake Island to the north, Kiribati to the south-east, and Nauru to the south. The most populous atoll is Majuro, which also acts as the capital. Micronesian colonists gradually settled the Marshall Islands during the 2nd millennium BC, with inter-island navigation made possible using traditional stick charts. Islands in the archipelago were first explored by Europeans in the 1520s, with Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar sighting an atoll in August 1526. Other expeditions by Spanish and English ships followed, with the islands' current name stemming from British explorer John Marshall (1788). This video is targeted to blind users.

http://democracynow.org - Among the poets from around the world who came to the U.N. climate summit in Morocco to highlight the impacts of climate change and inspire climate action was Marshall Islands poet and climate activist Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner. She reads her poem, "Two Degrees." Climatologists say that the best-case scenario of immediate and dramatic curbs on carbon emissions is that planetary surface temperatures will increase by at least 2 degrees Celsius in the coming decades. "At a climate change conference, a colleague tells me 2 degrees is just a benchmark for climate negotiations. I tell him 2 degrees is a gamble," says Jetnil-Kijiner. "At 2 degrees, my islands, the Marshall Islands, is already under water. This is why our leaders push for 1.5."

By Rolynda Jonathan Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have sent a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama urging him to retain the Assistant Secretary for Insular Affairs' post. The 22 members cited that the U.S. territories and affiliated islands have benefited greatly from the last four years as it allowed "the Assistant Secretary to focus on your address your administration's policy" to the region. The members further urged President Obama to retain and quickly fill the position that has remained vacant since Tony Babauta's resignation on February 1, 2013. Prior to Babauta's appointment, the post was inactive for more than a decade under the U.S. Department of Interior. The office oversees the American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas Islands, the US Virgin Islands, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia and Palau.

On Tuesday, Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner from the Marshall Islands read a poem to world leaders, written as a letter to her child. "Even though there are those hidden behind platinum titles who like to pretend that we don’t exist," she writes, "that the Marshall Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Maldives and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and floods of Pakistan, Algeria, and Colombia and all the hurricanes, earthquakes, and tidalwaves didn’t exist. Still there are those who see us hands reaching out." Full episodes of Democracy Now! can be viewed at the link: https://www.freespeech.org/collection/democracy-now

By Rolynda Jonathan The Marshall Islands Auditor General's office has expanded its fraud investigations with the newly established Investigations Division. Since establishing the new division, thirteen complaints have been filed alleging theft and fraud within the government. Auditor General Junior Patrick says the office has received a number of complaints and allegations via the fraud hotline, emails, phone calls and even walk-in visits. Complaints received ranges from allegations of embezzlement, unethical conduct by public officials, abuse of power and lack of compliance with procurement policy and grant agreements. With a single investigator working under the new division, additional staff is needed to meet the demands of investigations and response to complaints and reports. Despite the demand, Patrick postponed hiring a new Deputy Investigator due to budget constraints. At the meantime, Patrick is working with the U.S. Department of Interior of the Inspector General to schedule trainings focusing on fraud investigation and auditing for the current staff. Since 2011, several people have been charged in court and convicted of theft foreign grants in the Ministry of Health.
