Japan Nuclear Expert: Extensive areas in Kanto should evacuate if they want to be protected from radiation — Gov’t abandoned the people there

A recent post by Kyoto University Reactor Research Institute professor Hiroaki Koide translated by Dissensus Japan:

[…]

according to the laws of Japan, the extensive areas over Tohoku and Kanto, which measures the radiation level of 40.000 Bq/m2, should be designated as radiation controlled area and the people should evacuate.

The government decided the extensive land couldn’t be given up, therefore abandoned the people there. These people have no option but evacuating home if they want to protect themselves from radiation, however, the government intends not to pay any compensation.

[…]

Due to the fallout from Fukushima, in the extensive area covering Tohoku and Kanto, the levels of cesium radiation exceed the standard of radiation controlled area (40.000 Bq/m2). The government are aware they abandoned the people in the contaminated areas.

    from the article..

    "..More than a million people including children have been forced to daily life in the land now contaminated. In such areas, as shown in this report, cesium substance is concentrated fiercely that micro-distributed spot. In addition, (for example, Higashimurayama of Tokyo) also, substance cesium is concentrated are present at not receiving the contamination of more that must be specified in the radiation controlled area, have to manage as radioactive material if the original should.."

    "..(black material was collected at school Higashimurayama), which is mono (from evening until the next morning) was measured 982 minutes. Were measured for a long time, also can be seen on the spectrum of Bi-214 and K-40 is a natural surround back ground of the measurement system. However, if it contains high concentration of Cs-137, Cs-134, has emerged as a clear peak.  Black substance of Minamisoma includes a high concentration of cesium further, beyond the 100μSv / h and to measure the gamma dose rate at the surface. Ge detector was applied to it, the dead time of the detector beyond the 90%, you can no longer normal measurement…"

    blimey!

    This is a damning pronouncement with the data to back it up.

    I hope this info goes wide and deep across Japan.

    Governments are used to absorbing high death tolls in their populations. It's always very hard to witness.

    Is there a big lesson to be learned from this that you must forget about the govt having a plan or making a place for you and your loved ones? Have their govt not seriously considered evacuation for the past year and at least arranged for locations, housing and supplies? Oh my.

    Radiation is all over the place. And only because a few crazy men allow a few other crazy men to use this stuff for electric companies. I'm gettin' tired of ingesting cesium.

    Guess a lawsuit is needed..can they even take THAT step if the Japanese law is broken by the government? And filing a lawsuit seems so useless when time is so critical–Hell is too good for these "Noda" people.

    About professor Hiroaki Koide …

    http://ist-socrates.berkeley.edu/~hasegawa/Papers/Koide.html

    "despite the efforts of many persons like Koide, the much stronger coalition among power companies, nuclear industry, bureaucrats, politicians, and scientists has collusively constructed more than fifty nuclear power plants in Japan by paying impoverished rural areas irresistible amounts of money to surrender control over their lands."

    Also from professor Koide's article: "…the sample collected in a school in Higashi Murayama contains more than 20.000 Bq/kg of Cesium… As I reported, some substances (or living beings) that have high concentration of Cesium are scattered as "micro hot spots" everywhere in these area. Those micro hot spots were found even in a place like Higashi Murayama, that doesn't get as much damage as the standard radiation controlled area."
    Higashi-Murayama is 13.5 km from Yokota Air Force Base, United States Forces Japan headquarters. Independent radiation readings should be taken at all the US military bases in Japan.
