[...] Some debris from near the fukushima nuclear plant is being hauled to other parts of the country, ground up into mulch and burned.

Officials say, the debris has not triggered any elevated radioactive readings.

Still, many don’t want potentially hazardous materials coming to their towns and cities. [...]

Watch: Police get rough with citizens at townhall meeting on burning debris -- Women scream as people forcibly removed from building after asking questions (VIDEO & PHOTOS)

    CNN, Are you trying to be fashionably late with your reporting?

    I saw this on live leak, the reporter said "everything is being carefully choreographed to calm the fears of concerned citizens"

    I interpreted that to mean -> staged.

    How about saying it this way;

    TV 'programming' is being carefully arranged to keep unconcerned citizens in the dark. Only the best 'programming' is being utilized; sports, reality, soaps, interviews, drams, history, and more.

    Spread the contamination around across the whole country. Then no one can sue cause everyone will have an equal load of radiation..

    FukU is an equal opportunity radiation spreader. EVERYONE deserves to get contaminated.

      Good point agreenroad, and perhaps one of the genius experts told them that spread radiation around for everyone to ingest is a viable dispersion technique….. a little here, a little there, you and you and you have some…..

    Thank you, CNN, for telling us that "sharing the burden" is still ongoing a year later.

    Must have been a slow news day so they defied their superiors and reported nuclear news , I wonder if they were fired.
    I don't see the logic in transporting contaminated waste from a highly contaminated area to a low contaminated area and spreading waste further, leave it where it is till you can properly handle.
    Fukushima prefect will not be habitable for many 100 of years if ever, first they must stop the continual release of radioactive isotopes into the environment from three rouge reactors, that technology is beyond their ability.
    Nuclear energy is Pure madness, hell of a way to boil water.

  • Didn't Busby and/or Gundersen say this was going to happen or was happening quite some time ago?

    This is insidious. The burning of debris is not a good solution for anyone. It just sends some of the contamination into the atmosphere and the ashes have to be buried or dumped somewhere. hmm…?

    This is horrific. They are not just adding to the contamination of their island country. They are adding THEIR contamination to the globe. Daily! Non-Stop!

    Did the people or the living things of this planet give them permission to do this? I don't think so.

    It was Busby, last year, and he called it "really quite insidious and horrifying …" …

    … and when I try and relate this strategy of GE and TEPGOV towards Japanese population and radiation … they glaze over … unable to comprehend the audacity and mendacity of the plan …

    … you see, and the nuclear industry understands this, a successful lawsuit against Big Nuclear suppliers and operators, can only work if clear post-accident epidemiology can be done, which requires statistical modeling of cancers and heart disease in a radiation accident-affected population as compared with a genetically similar population of people which has remained unaffected by the radiation release … hence the distribution of radiation insult to all areas of Japanese homeland, so no population is available for the baseline (not-irradiated) control group in the epidemiological study … and any lawsuit for damages will fail, since the study will have been, say, contaminated …

    … It is this level of jaw-dropping wickedness which regular Americans simply are unwilling to believe … after all, 'they' did not deliver Smallpox germ infested blankets to Native Americans, nor did 'they' preside over Ausschwitz, Birkenau or Dachau …

    … and it is this strategy which shows the Nuke pukeheads to make Jerry Sandusky appear chaste … and Heinrich Himmler and Josef Mengele seem mild-mannered … and kind …

    … peace …

      fellow VTer, I can only say this is a plague of mental illness in our society today, the special kind that comes from the lust for power, the greed of immense wealth, the corporate arena devoid of ethics, no different than the lion's den of Rome…

      what we do have going for us, the healthy minded, is our hunger for truth and our limitless compassion.

      there are other realms where WE stand on Higher Ground and history will slowly turn the tide against nuclear if we are patient.

      This makes sense why it is crucial that the mandatory evacuation zone doesn't grow in size… good point.
