    stopping further acceptance and incineration of more debris because neither the transport of such radioactive materials nor the burning of it is safe or sound public policy Spreading radioactivity to clean areas is dangerous If such debris is incinerated health threatening dangerous radioactive particles will be emitted into the atmosphere and around the world Other radioactive particles will be in the incinerator ash Even if the incinerator ash is only used for landfill the radioactive cesium in the soil will eventually move to the ocean because it is soluble in water Unless a plant or animal instead carries it into the wind and into someone s lungs or into food and into someone s mouth After the Fukushima Dai ichi disaster Japanese government standards were changed to allow people to be exposed to much more radioactivity than was considered safe before the disaster Before industrial waste with radioactive cesium concentration of 100 becquerels per kilogram Bq kg and higher had to be carefully handled and stored as radioactive waste only at designated facilities Now if radioactive cesium concentration in it is lower than or equal to 8 000 Bq kg that debris can be used for landfill as regular waste There is no scientific health data to justify this 80 times increase in allowable radiation An October 2011 IAEA report about findings on radioactive waste states Large volumes of contaminated material will be generated from massive clean up activities in urban agriculture forest and aquatic areas that are affected mostly by radioactive cesium releases The material would include soil organic material vehicles buildings road material aqueous liquids trees and stumps contaminated with Cs 134 and Cs 137 The radioactivity content of the contaminated material ranges from a few to several tens of thousands of Bq kg It is hardly possible to measure accurate radioactive cesium concentration in debris to be transported to other parts of Japan including Kitakyushu We should never leave a such a dangerous and long lasting legacy to our offspring We should stop spreading radioactive contamination and preserve the land air and water of Kyushu We can help people who more directly suffered from the terrible disaster to recuperate in the clean environment of Kyushu Accordingly we call for Kitakyushu Mayor Kenji KITAHASHI to 1 Please stop accepting and incinerating the disaster related debris immediately since its safety cannot be ensured 2 Please support and reinforce measures to help the people of Tohoku areas near Fukushima Dai ichi with high radioactive contamination such as continued admission of evacuees for respite and recuperation Post navigation Older posts Top Posts Pages 2014 April Hibakusha Stories Global Health and Environment in the Post 2015 Agenda Lessons from the Fukushima nuclear accident Radioactive Rubbles have reached to the Kitakyushu incinerator plant in the south island of Japan Recent Posts 2015 April Hibakusha Stories January 11 2016 2015 May A Concert for Disarmament May 27 2015 2014 May Hibakusha Stories November 24 2014 2014 April Hibakusha Stories November 17 2014 Global Health
