  • Let's spread radioactive contamination across Japan!

    What a fantastic idea! What will they think of next?

    Japanese PM delivers urgent tsunami debris plea as evacuees give up hope on returning home
    Japanfs prime minister has made an urgent plea to the nation to accept the disposal of millions of tons of tsunami waste, as hundreds of evacuees concede that they may never return home. Shortly after the nationfs remembrance of the first anniversary of the disaster, Yoshihiko Noda, the prime minister, urged local government authorities across Japan to accept and help safely dispose of the accumulated 22.5 million tons of debris.

    The issue is causing growing concern in Japan, with dozens of regions refusing to accept any of the tsunami-generated rubbish due to stiff opposition from residents concerned about radiation contamination.

    In the meantime, mountains of cleared-up debris – including broken houses, smashed cars, splintered trees – are accumulating across the worst-hit prefectures Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima, despite government reassurances that it poses no radiation threat to human health.

    Speaking in a press conference, Mr Noda said: gThe world lavished praise on the spirit of the Japanese for helping one another in the aftermath of the disaster.

    gThat Japanese psyche is being tested again. The processing of debris is a symbol of that.h

    He added: gI urge the public to recognise that we are all directly involved in reconstruction.h

    It's idiotic. Instead of the world associating Fukushima with radiation it will now associate all of Japan with radiation.
    They should just dig a hole about 1km deep and 10km wide and throw it all in the same place. Even better sent it to Australia and bury it in the same (dry, geologically stable) place the uranium came from.
    I think Australia has a responsibility to take that stuff. They shouldn't have to be asked. they should offer. You think it might effect people? Fly over Australia someday. There is a LOT of space to put it.

      But the Govt said that the debris poses no threat to human health.

      Do you not trust the Govt?

      We should help the people of Fukushima by spreading it around the country. That way we can all do our bit and all get a warm feeling...

        Yeah. i think we should go one better and each household has to take a big bag of radioactive stuff and hand it down through the generations.

          I have a different view on that. The radiation levels of the debris are very low, and do not pose a health risk - no more than eating a banana. If the debris doesn't get shifted then the people in Tohoku do not get their life back.

          This over exaggeration of the radiation problem is often politically motivated (for other countries) and it is hurting, once again, the people of Tohoku.

            BS

            Just dig a big hole, fill it with debris, toss the removed earth back on top and call it Mr. Whateverdafeck and turn it into a national park. Done.

            Better yet, make a decent sea wall with it.

            I GUARANTEE you this will happen:

            Company XYZ will win bid to dispose of debris.
            Same company will win another bid to build sea wall.
            Said company will use debris as filler, saving on fuel to ship out debris, ship in filler and on filler - yet they will charge for it. This will be discovered, when they tear up portions of the sea wall to install something that should have been installed in the first place, but was not included in the job either because of negligence, poor planning or willful intention to profit from kickbacks. At that point Company ABC will make the discovery, there will be an investigation but no money will be returned because Company XYZ has since gone bankrupt through poor investment choices and overpaid salaries.

              It will all end up being dumped in the sea off Somalia, like the rest of the world's contaminated waste.

              Then we will eat fish.

                There shouldn't be any reason why the debris in Iwate and Miyagi should be radioactive. Might be difficult to persuade the punters though.

                  Why transport it and potentially contaminate other areas?

                  The solution is to find a big valley and turn it into a massive dump. Easy....

                  But then the truck companies and all those groups that survive on govt contracts wouldnt make a profit.

                    I think the Emperor should set an example and have some of the waste disposed of on the palace grounds.

                      And in green space near to Nagata-cho and Kasumigaseki. I do not have a geiger counter or other measurement devices, but if it is somewhat radioactive, why would anyone in their right mind want to suggest that other regions accept it? And it if isn't so bad, why not use it as suggested above? Not like these opinions haven't been voiced countless times already.

                      Bets on how long Noda will survive? If he doesn't last long enough to implement the sales tax increase, the next successor won't do it, especially if LDP. The best thing to do about the waste and the debt is simply to ignore them. Put it off and on the next gijiroku -- that's what we do here!

                        There's no room in one location for that. We're talking about 100 years worth of junk.

                          But as I said, the stuff further north has no reason to be contaminated with radioactivity. But you love to believe the worst, regardless of whether or not it is based on fact.
