“Burning Radioactive Debris Will Only Serve To Further Randomly Spread Radiation Across Japan, As Well As The Rest Of The World”

Japanese Children Are Already Suffering Tremendously From Fukushima Radiation

I noted earlier today that Tokyo – and other parts of Japan – are burning radioactive debris, which will disperse more radiation into the environment.

Steven Starr – Senior Scientist, Physicians for Social Responsibility,  and Director of the Clinical Laboratory Science Program at the University of Missouri-Columbia, who has advised numerous countries on issues of nuclear non-proliferation – wrote a comment to the post agreeing:

Burning radioactive debris will only serve to further randomly spread radiation across Japan, as well as the rest of the world. Not only will this lead to more morbidity and mortality within Japan, but it will further complicate epidemiological studies of the Fukushima disaster. Raising “acceptable” levels of radioactive fallout is a false solution to a serious problem. It is possible for the government authorities to do this because radiation is invisible to us, and at lower doses, the consequences of exposure do not manifest themselves for some time . . . thus it is a poison that is easy to hide and ignore. Sadly, the children of Japan will be those most seriously affected by this man-made environmental catastrophe.

All independent nuclear health experts would agree with Starr.

And Japanese children are already suffering tremendously from Fukushima radiation

  • The cascading catastrophe of death continues. We must put an end to it, starting with saving Spent Fuel Pool #4, currently the only thing separating us from a global radiological nightmare of unimaginable proportions.

    I ask you all to please sign the following petition demanding that President Obama commission the Fukushima International Scientific Advisory Team, save Spent Fuel Pool #4, and stop Fukushima. It only takes a couple of minutes: you just need to register a WhiteHouse.Gov account using your name, email, and phone number. We need 25,000 signatures in the next 30 days in order to receive an official response from the Administration. Please, take a moment to sign the petition and share the link widely on social networks and other websites. The future depends on you.
