In 1972 Edward Lorenz presented the paper, "Predictability- Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil Set Off a Tornado in Texas?" Now known as the butterfly effect, it is a phrase that suggests a small variation of an initial condition of a dynamic system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. So the flapping of butterfly wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that ultimately cause a tornado to appear(or not -- it could be countered by a butterfly in Texas).
So my question is if a nuclear waste material is leaked into the ocean, what effect might that have on weather patterns around the globe? Last week the 6.8 earthquake in Japan triggered a leak of nuclear waste. The company said the amount was far too small to pose a health hazard but has come under criticism for initially underreporting radiation levels. Even if the amount was small, those who understand homeopathic theory realize that it only takes a small amount to imprint the radioactive message on water. As the oceans are the source of our weather patterns, any disturbance in them could potentially have an effect anywhere around the globe. During the past 4-5 days our weather in Seattle has been unseasonably rainy and humid. I can't help but wonder if there is a connection. Luckily as Masuru Emoto has shown, water responds to thought and prayer and it's structure can be harmonized with thoughts of gratitude and love. I would suspect our ocean water could use a little gratitude right now.
