One more item to share....and oh how I wish I could say this was fabricated. Oh if only...this wasn't their thinking. Even the damn Soviet Union
wasn't THIS cold and calculating about the most efficient use of land and space, as I'm sure the thinking must be going over there among the
(This is dated Jan 2012)
The meltdown last March of three nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan also contaminated large areas of farmland
and forests, albeit not as severely or extensively as at Chernobyl. But lacking land for resettlement and facing public outrage over the accident, the
Japanese government has chosen a very different path, embarking on a decontamination effort of unprecedented scale.
Beginning this month, at least 1,000 square kilometers of land — much of it forest and farms — will be cleaned up as workers power-spray
buildings, scrape soil off fields, and remove fallen leaves and undergrowth from woods near houses. The goal is to make all of Fukushima livable
again. But as scientists, engineers, and ordinary residents begin this massive task, they face the possibility that their efforts will create new
environmental problems in direct proportion to their success in remediating the radioactive contamination.
While this is how they have their people suit up to collect samples out in the countryside.....clear back away from the Fuku facility itself. Yeah...
nothing to see there, I'm convinced.
“Safe? What is safe?” Sumiko Toyoguchi, an elderly evacuee who used to live six kilometers from the nuclear plant and now lives in temporary
housing in Fukushima City, asked last month. She said she doesn’t want to return to her former home even after decontamination takes place, in part
because she worries the work won’t be done
It's a long article with a wide range of information as an overview of the whole situation. It also gives a fairly specific set of numbers for
estimated exposure levels as safe and not. As it says, that's all so uncertain but getting any numbers can be surprisingly hard as anyone who has
gone looking would surely agree, It's worth reading all of it.
I have to say though, I'm with the old woman. Age brings great wisdom in this case!
