Come to Ocean View, Hawaii paradise !! Lots and homes are selling like hotcakes and prices are predicted to double in the next few years. Enjoy a tropical Hawaiian paradise lifestyle. Clean, radiation free warm water ocean, pristine air, and charming people.

Ocean View is 2000 to 5000 foot elevation on the southwest slopes of Mauna Loa. Enjoy fabulous views of the most southern point in the United States. Warm beautiful days and cool comfortable nights year round await you!




Just down the beautiful "Queen K" Hwy is gorgeous Waialea Bay. Bask in the warm sun year round on clean white sand beaches and snorkle in a fabulous marine sanctuary. During the winter months you might even see a whale waving back at you! And you might even find yourself swimming with one of Hawaii's famous "Honus" (sea turtles) :-)




You can even go snowboarding on Hawaii in the winter. Just a couple hours drive up from the warm sunny beaches! Or join a tour of the world famous observatories. Stay after dark and see an awesome view of the Milky Way.

Hawaii from space

You can see all the volcanic smog aka vog that gets pooled into the marine inversion of warmer air at lower elevations. Looks like soot hovering over the west side of the island. The SO2 gas molecules emitted from Kilauea cling on to the moisture droplets in the air. Much like the C02 caused smog in California.

Decided to go hike on a trail in a Hawaiian dry land forest that I haven't been in a couple of years. Was quite taken aback by the toll the last two years of drought have taken on the upper canopy of the Ohia trees. The forest is flooded with light now. And the trees are toppling over left and right.

FUKUSHIMA UPDATE nuclear news from japan


Source.

Radioactive contaminants from Fukushima are pushed through the water by ocean currents, the fastest of which is the Kuroshio (wind was the primary driver of debris washed out to sea by the tsunami). This current originates near Japan and travels east more than 5,000 miles before it splits into north- and south-flowing branches along the West Coast of North America. Some Fukushima radiation has already begun to appear on the West Coast of North America and is expected to peak in most places between 2014 and 2015. - See more at: http://www.ourradioactiveocean.org/#sthash.Ryv2969 B.dpuf

HOW RADIOACTIVE IS OUR OCEAN?

The release of radioactive contaminants from Fukushima remains an unprecedented event for the people of Japan and the Pacific Ocean. Help scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution reveal the ongoing spread of radiation across the Pacific and its evolving impacts on the ocean.
