SHOCKING: Deadly Fukushima soil to be used in Japan’s public parks

In an attempt to bury the reality of radioactive fallout and pretend that everything is okay, the Japanese government is now planning to redistribute hundreds of millions of cubic meters of radioactive soil from theFukushima nuclear disaster site to public parks throughout the country. Soil contaminated with radioactive cesium is currently being shipped throughout Japan and used to prop up roads and tidal banks, and it’s about to get even worse.

The Ministry of the Environment and its advisory council are planning to buy the contaminated soil directly from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site so they can hide it in future public landfill projects. This is how the Japanese government plans to clean up the radiation – dilute it underfoot and disperse it in the many communities throughout the country. Radioactive waste is about to become a permanent pollutant, slowly infecting the Japanese way of life. A University of Tokyo environmental engineering professor, Yuichi Moriguchi, estimates that there are roughly 100 million cubic meters of contaminated soil, which is enough soil to fill 80 large stadiums.

In the summer of 2016, the Japanese government began recycling contaminated soil with radioactive cesium measurements reaching 8,000 becquerels per kilograms. Tons of contaminated soil has already been mobilized to build tidal banks and national roadways. The newest rule allows this toxic soil to be used in public parks as long as it is covered by a layer of topsoil, vegetation, or concrete. Notably, Cesium-137 has a 30-year half-life and persists in soils for 200 – 300 years.

It’s hard to tell where all this radiation will end up over time. Once it’s dispersed throughout the country, it could ultimately end up in water and food sources for decades to come. After the contaminated soil is dispersed in a public works project, the Japanese government says that area residents are expected endure less than .01 mSv of radiation a year. Apparently, exposure to radiation is the new normal in Japan, and the government suddenly “knows” how much is safe on a yearly basis.

The nuclear disaster has contaminated the world’s largest ocean in only five years….!!!#

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong.

In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan.

Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world.

Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years.

May 24, 2011/ Japan : 70,000 more should evacuate after Fukushima

PARIS – SEVENTY thousand people living beyond the 20-kilometre no-go zone around Fukushima should be evacuated because of radioactivity deposited by the crippled nuclear plant, a watchdog said.

Updating its assessment of the March 11 disaster, France’s Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) highlighted an area northwest of the plant that lies beyond the 20-km (12 mile) zone whose inhabitants have already been evacuated.

Radioactivity levels in this area range from several hundred becquerels per square metre to thousands or even several million bequerels per square metre, the IRSN report, issued late on Monday, said.

Around 70,000 people, including 9,500 children aged up to 14, live in the area, ‘the most contaminated territory outside the evacuation zone,’ the agency said.

‘These are people who are still to be evacuated, in addition to those who were evacuated during the emergency phase in March,’ Didier Champion, its environmnent director, told AFP.

Staying in this area means the inhabitants would be exposed to radiation of more than 10 millisieverts (mSv)in the year following the disaster, according to the IRSN. — AFP
