Not a shocking fact at all: Soil samples in TOKYO would be considered NUCLEAR WASTE in the US!

While traveling in Japan several weeks ago, Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen took soil samples in Tokyo public parks, playgrounds, and rooftop gardens. All the samples would be considered nuclear waste if found here in the US. This level of contamination is currently being discovered throughout Japan. At the US NRC Regulatory Information Conference in Washington, DC March 13 to March 15, the NRC's Chairman, Dr. Gregory Jaczko emphasized his concern that the NRC and the nuclear industry presently do not consider the costs of mass evacuations and radioactive contamination in their cost benefit analysis used to license nuclear power plants. Furthermore, Fairewinds believes that evacuation costs near a US nuclear plant could easily exceed one trillion dollars and contaminated land would be uninhabitable for generations.


  1. A lot of information about Japan radiation leak!

  2. Japan's radiation is really serious! pay attention to Japanese products!

  3. The radiation in Japan is an extremely serious problem.
    It is wise that we don't buy any products from Japan.
