Toxic waste dump in oceans

poison dump oceanIndustrial companies have used the ocean as a dumping ground for toxic waste. Hazardous industrial chemicals and radioactive waste have been accumulating in the ocean for 150 years.

Every year, industrial companies dump a minimum of 180 million tons of toxic, chemical and radioactive waste into the oceans. This is named deep blue dumping.

Industrial companies treat the ocean as a bottomless pit with the idea out of sight, out of mind

Some examples:

Off the coast of Los Angeles, as many as half a million barrels of the potent and highly toxic insecticide DDT are scattered across the ocean floor, waiting to be released into the water. This was discovered a few years ago by a Los Angeles Times investigation. DDT has already been found in Southern California 🐬 dolphins and a recent study linked DDT to an aggressive cancer in 🦭 sea lions.


More than 80,000 barrels of radioactive waste were recently dumped at several sites in the Pacific and off the East Coast. Before the 1972 Ocean Dumping Act, the dumping of radioactive waste was legal in USA and was done on large scale with little care for marine health.

Today radioactive nuclear waste is still being dumped in several countries such as in Somalia’s oceans. Western industrial companies have been freely dumping tons of radioactive nuclear waste into the unregulated shores off Somalia’s coastline, which according to locals include companies from Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

🇺🇳 UN envoy to Somalia: ‘Somebody is dumping nuclear material here. There is also lead, and heavy metals such as cadmium and mercury.’ Much of it can be traced back to European 🏥 hospitals and factories.

whale hcb pollutionSome of the waste such as hexachlorobenzene (HCB) is denied for processing in Europe and is therefor dumped in Somalia’s oceans. Locals report that German and Danish shipping companies recently dumped 60,000 barrels of HCB from Australia.

One gram of HCB is enough to contaminate one billion gallons (over 3 billion litres) of water.

A recent study (2019) by Royal Society of Chemistry showed that Humpback whales are getting sick by HCB contamination, causing a variety of health effects, DNA damage and cancer. HCB dominates the contaminant profiles in whales.


A ticking time bomb is lying beneath the surface of many European seas. It is estimated that German parts of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea alone contain some 1.6 million metric tonnes of relic munitions. These conventional and chemical weapons threaten human life and the marine environment. The weapons, TNT and other explosives slowly decay, releasing harmful substances like cytotoxic, genotoxic, and carcinogenic chemicals into the water.


trash nuclear radioactive ocean japanAfter 10 years of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the 🇯🇵 Japanese government has decided on Tuesday, April 13th 2021, to start releasing radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean in 2023. According to a German Marine Scientific Research Institute, once the waters are dumped in the ocean, radioactive materials could spread to most of the Pacific Ocean within 57 days and all oceans within a decade, which could cause a disaster for marine life.


The CEO of $180 billion USD oil company Trafigura BV (fortune 500 rank 31) recently ordered to dump a tanker full of highly poisonous toxic waste into the ocean.

CEO of Trafigura BV to skipper: Beyond Dover, and certainly not in the Baltic Sea.

The CEO of Trafigura BV sent an email in which he warned not to discharge poisonous toxic waste into the Baltic Sea, ‘because this is a special area and certainly not between Dover and the Baltic Sea. The discharge may not take place until Dover has passed, on the way to Lomé (Nigeria)‘.

E-mail correspondence between Trafigura CEO and employees of the company further indicated that they knew that the transport of toxic waste from the EU to other countries was prohibited.

The dumping of hazardous chemical waste and radioactive waste is controlled in some countries, but not in all countries. Industrial companies can easily move to countries where dumping their waste is legal, such as the unregulated shores off Somalia’s coastline.

Whale babies washing ashore

Dozens of death whale babies that washed up in Norway in recent years show that they are already contaminated with deadly levels of toxic chemicals shortly after they are born.

The fact that whale meat from Norway is to polluted as of today to be accepted in Japan, and the fact that whale babies are washing ashore full of deadly levels of chemicals, is an indication that toxic waste pollution is accumulating in the oceans to such an extent that individual whales are not even able to be born healthy.

Attacks on my business and home

has reported about Eugenics on Nature (GMO) and a poison dump by oil company Trafigura BV using the critical blog Zielenknijper.nl that was read by +2 million readers which resulted in an attack on my business and in 2019, on my home in the city Utrecht, the Netherlands.

All contents of my home was destroyed with air pollution (PM2.5 500 µg/m³), I was subjected to absurd disrespectful behavior, slander and violence and I lost my home due to corruption of Justice.

I am founder of e-scooter.co, a project that promotes healthy air quality in cities and I am founder of a I City city marketing project with +500,000 readers and +200 social media editors.

I am a very decent person, am passionate about fitness and health and my 14+ room mates were on my side. The attack on my home was perceived as ‘absurd’.

View attack on my 🏠 home case

It is clear that the Dutch fortune 500 bank Rabobank with its headquarter in Utrecht, the Netherlands must have been involved in the attack on both my business and home.

Rabobank is dedicated to food security (GMO) and is the top financing partner of oil company Trafigura BV which CEO ordered to dump a tanker of toxic waste in the ocean.

Rabobank is known as ‘farmers bank’ and has adapted the slogan “Growing a better world together“. The bank presents itself as an environmentally friendly bank and in 2017 the bank won the “Green Bond Award”.

Rabobank invested into my business to sabotage it. Then in 2019, they destroyed my home and belongings and there are indications that it was an attempted murder.

Investigation

trafuguraAn investigation that followed the attack on my home in 2019 indicated that the origin of the attacks is probably Eugenics on Nature (GMO) and my reporting on a poison dump by Trafigura BV.

Oil investors

The Rabobank investor tried to connect me with big oil investors which I was invited to meet at a cafe at the airport Schiphol in Amsterdam.

I declined the invitation to meet with the oil investors.

Oil and internet are not related and I immediately suspected a link with Trafigura BV.

Amsterdam

amsterdam port servicesWhat they may have been particularly angry about is the fact that I reported about involvement of Amsterdam officials in the toxic waste dump.

Amsterdam officials were involved in the illegal transhipment of the heavily poisoned toxic waste by Trafigura BV and in the departure of the tanker Probo Koala from the port of Amsterdam. The company Amsterdam Port Services (APS) has previously been the target of criminal investigations for involvement in toxic waste offences.

The specific Rabobank investor was located in Amsterdam.

Paranormal vision

In February 2021 I noticed that someone at the Rabobank pushed very hard and didn’t back down. I could simply wonder what came out of it, and I then noticed a vision that is related to my reporting about Trafigura BV.

An invitation by the Rabobank investor to meet with oil investors at a cafe at the airport Schiphol in Amsterdam had already caused me to suspect a link with Trafigura BV, which was included in the motive to deny that invitation.


>>> How often is toxic waste dumped in the ocean?

When a Dutch fortune 500 company does it with ease, as is evident from the internal communication by the CEO of Trafigura BV – “Beyond Dover, and certainly not in the Baltic Sea.” – it may happen more often than is known.

Toxic waste may not be visible using satellites when it merges with the water.

The toxic waste that was dumped by Trafigura BV was a by-product of a process to increase the value of petrol, which is done at open sea. Since there is a considerable profit motive to create such poison, and since processing is difficult and costly, it may be dumped in the ocean more often than expected.

economist gmo eugenics nature synthetic biology

Eugenics on Nature

The multi-trillion dollar synthetic biology revolution reduces plants and animals to meaningless lumps of matter that can be “done better” by a company.

A flawed idea (a dogma) – the idea that the facts of science are valid without philosophy or a belief in uniformitarianism – lays at the root of the synthetic biology revolution or “Eugenics on Nature”.

When it concerns a practice that profoundly disrupts the foundation of Nature and human life, it can be an argument that caution is required before the practice is started and that letting it ‘run dumb’ by companies with a short term profit motive is not responsible.

Reprogramming nature (synthetic biology) is extremely convoluted, having evolved with no intention or guidance.

Synthetic Biology in The Economist (Redesigning Life, April 6th, 2019)

The idea that plants and animals are meaningless lumps of matter is not plausible for diverse reasons.

If plants and animals are to posses of meaningful experience then they are to be considered meaningful within a context that can be denoted as ‘vitality of Nature’ or Nature’s bigger whole (Gaia Philosophy), of which the human is a part and of which the human intends to be a prosperous part.

pant philosophyFrom that perspective, a base level of respect (morality) may be essential for Nature to prosper.

Vitality of nature – the foundation of human life – is a motive to question the validity of Eugenics on Nature before it is practiced.

Want to help? Consider whale and dolphin philosophy. If it is not known what to protect, how can the human be motivated? Philosophy can help spur cultural change in human-ocean relations.

Women structurally excluded from philosophy

Women have been structurally excluded from philosophy, which may help explain why advancements in morality and ethics on behalf of animals and Nature is lacking.

When women participated in philosophy, would the world be better? Would animals and the ocean be treated better? Would there be better understanding of why it is important to have respect for Nature?
