"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."
This is a very bad sign indicating that the Japanese government is (no surprise) overwhelmed. If incineration creeps back in incrementally, it will be only a matter of time before North America starts recording more fallout like we reported in Kansas yesterday. It will all depend upon how much contamination enters the jet stream and where rains decide to dump it out. We have had no alerts here is Sebastopol through our detectors and are seeing no detectable radiation in N. America. But then again, it's not raining and the incineration has apparently just resumed.
