8,000 Bq/Kg of radioactive sewage sludge incinerated ash is being dumped in Tokyo Bay
I loved Tokyo Bay.
It used to be polluted in 60s but recently it was clear.
It was beautiful to see, especially at night, yummy to eat, (fish), and marine sports were available.
On 6/28/2011, the Japanese government decided radioactive ash, which is lower than 8,000 Bq/Kg can be treated as normal garbage.
In Tama City, 3000 tons of radioactive ash was stocked but because the stocking facility has become full, they finally started dumping it into Tokyo Bay.
It is supposed to be “lower than 8,000 Bq/Kg“, but it does not mean it is safe.
Moreover, who could trust if it is really lower than 8,000 Bq/Kg?
They say, that they try not to let it fly in the air and it will not contaminate the environment, but it is already flying around in the video.
It will sink under the ground and contaminate water. Once it’s dumped, nobody can stop contamination.
Today, Nuclear Energy Council stated decommissioning of the reactors takes more than 30 years.
If it is true, they made 3,000 tons of radioactive ash in these 6 months.
There will be 180,000 tons of radioactive ash produced in Tama alone.
If they “made a mistake”, as always, and it was 1 in 10 as always, it means decommissioning of reactors would take 300 years,which seems more reasonable.
In that case, 1,800,000 tons of radioactive ash will be produced in total.
In the video above, it is totally insane that this female reporter does not wear a mask and goggles.
It might be not to cause a “public panic”, but this is a pure murder.
They will also use it for concrete.
