Radiation level increased double within 20 days after decontamination, Fukushima Diary, January 12, 2012:

From 12/6/2011 to 12/20/2011, Japanese self defense force went to Fukushima to decontaminate. [...]

As expected, they successfully proved decontamination is meaningless.

  • Self defense force struggled to decontaminate the flags of the Iidatemura town hall on 12/20/2011.
  • 12/20: 1.57 microSv/h
  • 12/29: 2.87 microSv/h
  • 1/10: 3.26 microSv/h
  • Between the stones of the path, dead leaves were already put.

    another very interesting find by mochizuki!

    However, the radiation level of 1cm above the roof (Concrete) only decreased by less than half.(2.4 microSv/h→1.6 microSv/h).
    When it comes to slate, it was only 2.4 microSv/h → 2.0 microSv/h, and in the case of tiled roof, it was only 1.2 microSv/h → 1.1 microSv/h.

    i am sure the lawyers and PR firms are on the case to tell us that everything emminating 0.20 microsieverts/hr or less is actually good!! but dont mention internal emmitters!! ??

    seems like a bit of a waste of time and resources..
    most efficient!/sarc

    There’s no decontamination
    only relocation.
    From roof to street gutter.
    Then…
    Treatment plant?
    Concentrated sludge?
    The usual end-outlet…
    River, ocean.

    Do you think such results will change the policy?

      If the policy is to appear to be doing something, to provide a framework for re-assuring gov’t soundbites, I don’t think it will change.

      I think they fully intend to get as many people as possible back to where they were and resume as much business as usual as they can get away with.

    Policy won’t change..
    The people of Fukushima need to understand the meaning of ongoing and accumulative…and evacuate…by whatever means possible…press the government to help them relocate.
    Beg.. plead.. protest…do whatever it takes.

    PS…. the concept of ongoing and accumulative is almost more than anyone can wrap their head around…

      I think the same. And lies accumulate with the accumulation of radioactive materials. I am so sorry… At least one of these poisons needs to be stpped, in order to deal with the other.
