DECONTAMINATION IS DANGEROUS
FUTILE AND DANGEROUS DECONTAMINATION
Insanity continues to be rampant in Fukushima.
The Ministry of environment proposed new road maps for the decontamination of a few municipalities in Fukushima and the new target to completion « could be » reached by 2016. During this time, thousands of evacuees are still in limbo, but worse yet, believe they will one day be able to come back. The municipalities in question are Minami-Soma, Kawamata, Namie, Tomioka and Katsurao. In six other municipalities, residents are urged to come back and help decontaminate their communities.
To add to the insult, the Environment Ministry has failed to use 76.6 percent, or 247.2 billion yen, of its budget to decontaminate radioactive areas around the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. The blame game points in the direction of local residents, who are making it difficult for the ministry to secure places to temporarily store the contaminated soil and debris collected in the work. The central government also points at TEPCO who refuses to cover all the costs of the decontamination work as required under law.
While storage space is indeed needed for all this radioactive waste, it is well documented that decontamination is futile and dangerous, specially for children.
As storage space is limited, the only way to dispose of radioactive waste, is to dig holes deep enough to bury it … usually right from where it has been picked. Graves of radioactive waste is now spreading everywhere in the Eastern prefecture; private housing, parks, gymnasium, schools etc … (see pictures down below). Bigger « graves » are dug in secret, away from the eyes of the populace. All this is big business. Yakuzas and corrupt local officials profit while brave and desperate citizens take matters in their own hands. Alas futile, as most of the decontaminated areas, usually see levels increase again after days, due to ongoing fresh radiation coming from the mountains, rivers, forests and the uncontrollable Daiichi Nuclear Power plant.
HOW TO BUILD A « HOME MADE » NUCLEAR GRAVE
1 – Find the hotspot (s)
2 – Insert the waste in plastic bags
3 – Gather the numerous « now radioactive » bags together
4 – Stack them up within reach
WAIIIIIT …. Remove the children from the area immediately
5 – Ok … Now start digging! Make a huge hole in the garden
6 – Lay down a giant vinyl sheet into the ground
7 – Dump all the waste into it
8 – Cover the whole thing with fresh non (yet) radioactive soil
This ordeal has just began.
PLEASE BE SAFE AND DO NOT TRUST YOUR LOCAL OFFICIALS
