      I'm guessing more smoke and mirrors. But then they really do need to find a way to hide that crap, if they don't want people to start noticing and thinking.

        They'll bing the debris back home, and incinerate them. The pollution will still reach you, though… When they said 'You must share the pain', they were not talking to japanese, they were talking to the world

    They want to do something about the debris that you can see…how bout the much more deadly debris that invisible touches all of our lives…are they going to start planning on a way to combat the radioactive debris that floats in on the wind?

    Sometimes I have to remind myself that these people, including officials, were hit with the double-whammy of tsunami + total multiple reactor failures. I have very limited ocean experience and no "open seas" experience. But I wonder – maybe at the time retrieving stuff carried out to sea just couldn't become a part of early response?

    Pauite023 – so glad to see your Bernay's reference! A few years ago he was hardly ever mentioned except with specific reference to who he was. Where I am, the general population still does not seem to recognize how we are "played" and remains gullible I fear. More often recently on internet I've seen his name show up as you've used it – a general reference. I take it more than I realize now know about Bernays and that his work is behind all "persuasive ploys". I feel reassured! (Hooray for BBC's "Century of Self"!!)

      @Maggie123: glad to see someone who thinks before burping a response to every they read. You are correct that the Japanese people were a bit busy at the time this debris was washing-out to sea…

    We get a lot of tourists from Bakersfield here in Pismo Beach (CA) and I am affraid a whole bunch of that Japanese debri will go home with them and get sold as souvenirs in garage sales … maybe that is too over the top ?

      @ProfitOfDoom: regarding the contamination of this debris. As the tsunami retreated from the land, it pulled everything that was floating within it back-out to sea. The plants had not yet gone into full-blown failure yet, so this debris was not yet contaminated. Now, if it turns out that the Japanese have been secretly dumping debris (that's been exposed since the tsunami receded), then we'll have an issue. But if this debris is descending in a large mass, it's likely the material that's not been exposed to anything more than what we've all been exposed to…

        Thanks Aftershock … I believe that to be the most likely status of most of the debri field (believe=?)… unfortunately it might cause people to ignore the danger of the eventual arrival of some really HOT stuff ! … Ungawa !

          @ProfitOfDoom: as TEPGOV is not known for being honorable, I shouldn't suggest they may be dumping debris into the ocean; it might be another "…ahaa!" moment for these idiots. As incineration is not a healthy option, it makes little difference whether they dump it or burn it; we're all screwed. As to 'hot' flea markets? I'd be equally worried about the farmer's market…

    I can imagine it will be something like a sea going Sanford and Son type operation(I miss Red Foxx)… our government will take care of all the details.

    I've seen projections that the "mass" is about the size of California; this will be a giant undertaking and may change the Coastline of North America for a very long time!

    Hint: If you want to get any favorite coastal photographs, best to get them now!

    Not sure why old threads keep turning up like recent posts but I didn't add my 2 cents in Sept.-so here it is now.LOL~"The Japanese Govt. wants to "help" clean up all those radioactive safes & valuables they didn't get to steal when they cleared housing of people they now collect "rent" for the privilege of living in a govt. provided cardboard box being fed tainted food while their valuables were washed out to sea towards America with their precious fuel rods & buckyballs??!! I guess they didn't want their cesium which coated the fishing piers,floating docks & commercial fishing boats back-but at least dude got back his Harley!! Did they ever make good on their hollow offer/promise to "help" YET??!!
