NARAHA, Japan — In this small farming town in the evacuation zone surrounding the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, small armies of workers in surgical masks and rubber gloves are busily scraping off radioactive topsoil in a desperate attempt to fulfill the central government’s vow one day to allow most of Japan’s 83,000 evacuees to return. Yet, every time it rains, more radioactive contamination cascades down the forested hillsides along the rugged coast.

(Then later in the article, near the end they say this)

Unease about the worsening situation is evident among the residents of evacuated communities like Naraha. The cleanup here has gone more quickly than in other evacuated towns, with most decontamination expected to be finished sometime next year. ... d=all&_r=0

I guess the key words to focus on above are:

"...with MOST decontamination EXPECTED to be finished SOMETIME next year."

:lol: AMAZING!

Almost everything that you hear coming out of Japan concerning Fukushima is a lie, this disaster is worse than any worst case scenario that I ever heard offered up, and it is very hard for me to believe that anyone could have been so foolish in plant design and function unless it was done on purpose. The amount of, and type of fuel stored at this seismically unstable location is beyond belief, when I first saw the numbers I was shocked! To me this is the most telling quote: "The government is taking control of the cleanup from the plant’s operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company. "

I knew from the beginning that TEPCO would never be able to afford to put this plant into a stable condition, much less to clean up the mess. Now I'll let you in on a secret, Japan does not have the money or the manpower to do it either. Even if the Japanese Government were not already broke, which they are, no one Government could ever cover the cost or have the resources needed to solve the problem that they have over there. You can mark my words, this tragedy is just getting started, the worst is yet to come!

Another big problem is that there is no real decontamination happening. They might be cleaning it out of their area - haphazardly - but they are not following protocol, and actually making it much worse. They are dumping some contaminants into Tokyo Bay, and burning others (yipes). Also, from what I heard directly after the cleanup began, some of the contractors were out there with no protection at all - cleaning it up like it was dirt. :o :( ... ut-it.html ... -tokyo-bay ... 07134.html
