    Default Madonna’s magical nuclear waste cure

    ‘Kabbalah fluid can clean it up’




    MADONNA and her husband Guy Ritchie have been lobbying the government and nuclear industry over a scheme to clean up radioactive waste with a supposedly magic Kabbalah fluid.

    The couple, both followers of the Jewish spiritual movement, approached Downing Street, Whitehall and British Nuclear Fuels (BNFL) promoting a “mystical” liquid tested in a Ukrainian lake.

    “It was like a crank call . . . the scientific mechanisms and principles were just bollocks, basically,” one official said.

    But civil servants at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and scientists at BNFL were obliged to take the celebrity couple seriously.

    It is understood that the couple, who live in London and Wiltshire, were promoting a water-based solution that had allegedly proved successful in neutralising dangerous nuclear waste in Ukraine.

    The Kabbalah Centre, which is based in California, believes water is a uniquely important substance that can be given magic healing powers through “meditations and the consciousness of sharing”.

    Madonna is said to have approached Downing Street, before being directed to the DTI. “She relentlessly pursued people,” said a former DTI civil servant. “She wanted to get this Russian scientist to explain this to civil servants.”

    But her campaign became bogged down by Whitehall bureaucracy. “It was a case of pass the parcel,” said the civil servant.

    Ritchie, the film director, cold-called BNFL and wrote a series of letters accompanied by scientific papers. A panel of BNFL’s best scientists was tasked with looking into the proposal but could find no scientific basis for the claims.

    The lobbying, which took place a few years ago, was part of a campaign by Madonna, who saw it as her mission to rid the world of nuclear waste. She made this clear in newspaper interviews at the time.

    “I mean, one of the biggest problems that exists right now in the world is nuclear waste,” she said. “That’s something I’ve been involved with for a while with a group of scientists — finding a way to neutralise radiation, believe it or not.”

    The Kabbalah Centre, which is based in Los Angeles but has branches worldwide, was set up by Philip Berg, a former insurance salesman. One devotee has described how Berg leads chants of “Chernobyl” and the names of other nuclear power plants. Followers believe this helps “heal the problem of nuclear waste”.

    Undercover reporters who attended a Kabbalah Centre dinner in London described how Madonna and Ritchie were among guests who turned east towards Chernobyl and began shouting its name.

    Some Kabbalah followers are even said to believe that nuclear waste is the cause of the Aids epidemic.

    Madonna has said: “According to science we aren’t going to have a planet in about 50 years at the rate we’re going with nuclear waste.

    “I can write the greatest songs and make the most fabulous films and be a fashion icon and conquer the world, but if there isn’t a world to conquer, what’s the point?

    “I’ve just come to a place in my life where I’m trying to really see what the big picture is and where my energy is better spent, and that’s one area I’m really concerned about.”

    The Kabbalah Centre is believed to have sponsored Oroz, a “23rd-century” research body in New York that heralded a “breakthrough” in neutralising radioactive waste.

    Dr Artur Spokojny, the director of Oroz and a Kabbalah follower, is said to have developed a “revolutionary” decontamination agent called Orodyne, which can reportedly also treat gynaecological problems in cows and sheep.

    Three years ago the research centre claimed it had experimented with the agent in Lake Glyboke near Chernobyl and had successfully decontaminated the water.

    BNFL says it was approached by “a Mr Ritchie” at that time. Ritchie was told by one senior executive that the scheme defied the laws of physics but he persisted and was referred to a team led by Sue Ion, BNFL’s executive director of technology, said to have “a brain the size of a planet”.

    The industry is trying to find ways to dispose of enough waste to fill five Royal Albert Halls, with more on the way if plans for new nuclear power stations go ahead, so anyone with a viable solution could expect a sympathetic hearing.

    Paul Vallance, director of communications for British Nuclear Group, the nuclear clean-up arm of BNFL, said: “If Mr Ritchie, or anyone else for that matter, has such a solution we would be more than happy to speak to them.”

    Madonna was not available to comment because she is on tour in Germany.

    A spokeswoman said: “I’ve spoken to Guy’s office and I don’t think he is going to be available to talk about this . . . I don’t think it’s top of the list of things they are working on at the moment.”

    It looks like the Russian Mob isn't her biggest fans...

    Is Madonna not feeling the love from Russia? The London Sun claims "Russian gangsters," unhappy that the well-preserved pop icon is bringing her sacri-licious "Confessions" tour to Moscow next month, have sent "sinister warnings" that she, along with kids Lourdes and Rocco, could be kidnapping targets.

    "Madonna is well aware of the kidnap threats but she is brave and even a little nonchalant when it comes to her own safety," an insider tattles to the tab. "[Husband] Guy [Ritchie] is seriously concerned and has made it clear that security has to be tightened, just to be on the safe side."

    Earlier this month, a spokesman for Russia's Orthodox Church reportedly told followers to just say "nyet" to Madonna's leotard- and iconography-filled concert, griping that she "exploits Christian symbols -- the cross, rosary beads and the crucifix -- and tries to equate human passions, including her own personal passions, with something sacred."

    When contacted for comment on the alleged threats, the Big M's rep told MSN Entertainment, "I do not comment on security issues regarding Madonna. I can assure you that her security is always taken very seriously in every country that she visits."

    Yeah, like we're ever in danger of her doing any of this stuff. Sounds like this is more self-serving posturing - the more things change, etc. etc. etc.

    Why should we be surprised by this when we're talking about a woman who on one album was like a virgin and the next she was keeping the baby?

    Instead of kabbalah fluid, p'raps they should try lighter fluid. More bang for the buck.


    btw - anyone ever notice that madonna looks like a guy in a dress? He/she kinda reminds me of Vito from WWE.
