[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 280

Campaigners in Japan are asking people to grow sunflowers, said to help decontaminate radioactive soil, in response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster that followed March's massive quake and tsunami.

Volunteers are being asked to grow sunflowers this year, then send the seeds to the stricken area where they will be planted next year to help get rid of radioactive contaminants in the plant's fallout zone.

The campaign, launched by young entrepreneurs and civil servants in Fukushima prefecture last month, aims to cover large areas in yellow blossoms as a symbol of hope and reconstruction and to lure back tourists.

"We will give the seeds sent back by people for free to farmers, the public sector and other groups next year," said project leader Shinji Handa. The goal is a landscape so yellow that "it will surprise NASA", he said.

The massive earthquake and tsunami left more than 23,000 people dead or missing on Japan's northeast coast and crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant that has leaked radiation into the environment since.

Almost 10,000 packets of sunflower seeds at 500 yen ($6) each have so far been sold to some 30,000 people, including to the city of Yokohama near Tokyo, which is growing sunflowers in 200 parks, Handa said.

Article doesn't say it but the plants will try to pull potassium(kalium) from the soil and when none or low amounts is found they'll pull up the radioactive cesium instead. Interesting way of cleaning up some of the radioactive material, but what do you do with the plant waste afterward? Certainly can't go around giving out free sunflower seeds.

radioactive materials at a concentration just one-one hundred millionth of that found around the Fukushima plant hit the west coast of North America three days later
Guys you have better things to worry about than this

breathing 1 dust sized spec of plutonium or uranium can easily give you cancer 20 years later

10 of millions of people will die years later from breathing this stuff in, or eating/drinking it. And babies and children are at the greatest risk due to their fast splitting cells as they grow.

Japan is f()cked.
Its government had done nothing.
Prime Minister Kan is a joke.

You people in the West (not attempting to be rude) don't have nearly as much access to information to the native Japanese. I'm saying this only once. In 20-30 years time, there will be a spike in cancer patients. There will be more deformed babies. There will be more deaths. It's only then that the Japanese people will start to complain. There is a lack of education and awareness which makes me want to jump off a cliff this instant.

The people in Tokyo...they're living their lives as normal. Breathing in radiation. Internal radiation via food. It's just shocking. The government is letting this happen. I myself lived in Tokyo, but I evacuated myself to the Kyuushuu area. I guess that they have their daily lives to maintain...and causing a nationwide panic would be "excessive"...but this is the decision coming from the IDIOT who decline US help in containing the Fukushima Reactors when they were overheating.

Panic is what Japan needs right now.
The numbers are out there.
The knowledge is out there.
People are just not wanting to comprehend it.
If the TV and reliable news sources are not "panicking", and all seems to be A-OK, then why run away?
The censorship is awful.

RANT OVER.
I have some other examples of the twisted reality of the situation in Japan if you want to hear some more.

Radiation equivalent to the Hiroshima nuclear bomb, is being emitted from the Fukushima Nuclear Reactors every day. Every day.

Fukushima is a very clear reflection of Chernobyl... You'd think world would learn something, but they didn't. I'm Ukrainian myself, and I lived half of my life in Ukraine. Japs are f__ED big time, for the second time.
