Title: Japan to seek nuclear cooperation accord with Belarus
Source: The Mainichi Daily News
Date: February 15, 2012

[…] Japan hopes to conclude the agreement by the year-end so that data on radiation exposure and soil contamination accumulated by Belarus since the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster can be promptly used to treat people exposed to radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, crippled by the March earthquake and tsunami, and decontaminate the soil, the official said.

In late January, Japan has already started talks with Ukraine, where the Chernobyl complex is located, to conclude a similar agreement. […]

Due to the contamination, the Belarusian government last March estimated damage it suffered from the accident at $235 billion.

The agreement between Japan and Belarus is expected to cover data on the effects of nuclear accidents on human health and the environment […]

      "we will then decontaminate the soil" isn't that another way of we'll shuffle the radiation around so it appears less dealy?

      How can they compare notes with a three way melt/down/out/who knows where the nuclear material has gone and what it is continuing to contaminate with Chernobyl, a partial meltdown that was to some extent contained nuclear fuel?
      If there are any similarities beyond the suffering of many people, I'd like to know.
      Chernobyl seems to be the poster child of how a nuclear reactor accident can safely be resolved so Fukushima is trying hard to appear to be a lesser accident, and tries hard to identify with chernobyl, I see nothing that could put them in the same category.

    Nothing like being proactive! They should have been honest at first with the people instead of denying everything. There population has been exposed and is still being exposed!!! Time to send in the politicians and investors into the region and repopulate if they thought there was nothing wrong!!

      Good grief….FUKUSHIMA starts at 7:44 in

        I'm sorry but I was really insulted by Alex towards the end. Laughing and joking about Fukushima. He's either lost it…or is taking this too lightly. He's probably just blown away by it ALL too, whereby laughing is a form of relief. Dunno. 🙁

    235 Billion in Damages??? I thought human life was priceless!

    They must have left that figure out and only calculated property damage.

    That's the problem with nuclear in a nutshell…

    HUMAN IS NEVER PART OF THE EQUATION!

    As we are always discarded like a used tissue, is there really any government body to be held accountable for its crimes against humanity???

    I know I never agreed to "acceptable" or "permissible" discharge levels!

    So, acceptable to Whom, NRC, IAEA???

    When my state's health dept measures Strontium and Cesium in local mountain lake fish, then states "there is absolutely no harm to health" and makes sure to measure Potassium 40 levels in order to provide necessary "spin" that they too are guilty of negligent homocide…

    Okay, now the denial phase is over. Somebody woke up. We're making some progress.

    That's good. No more 'smile and radiation will bounce off you and float gently to your feet and turn into pretty butterflies' talk.

    Please, please don't burn any more radioactive waste. Remember gravity? What goes up must come down. It doesn't disappear, you know?

    And both decontamination of soil and treating people has to go hand in hand or else there'll be bodies dropping like flies before you get to them.

    Thank You.

      This IS a good video I just wish it had CC. But you STILL get the drift of the message. FUKUSHIMA SHOCK IS RIGHT.
